Today, many things were full, so I thought I would show them to you...

Under the bench where the week two trees are drying is FULL.  There are three Wades, one of them with a Hope style horn, and a wood post Will James.  The tree to the right is another Wade awaiting payment and shipping.

The trees Rod rawhided this week have the initial drying slabs FULL.  The tree on the left is a 9" Wade.  Then the upside down trees are an 8" Wade and another wood post Will James.  The one on the right is a 13 1/2" Modified Association.  The Wade in the back with the "silver" cap you have seen a few times already.  It is still here, waiting for its real silver horn cap to go into the exposed wood horn cap.  But we heard from the customer that the silversmith is working on it now, so we should have it soon.  It is going to be "real purdy"...

There are a couple of boxes FULL of saddle trees waiting to be shipped.  Actually, the bottom one is FULL.  The top one isn't quite yet.  Our quality control expert is making sure they are packed correctly.

The counter at the end of the shop is FULL of calf hide and deer hide to be cut into lace.  There's a lot of time looking at us right there.

While we were using the jointer/planer, the dust bin got FULL and had to be changed,

and the corner in the dirty room needs to be cleaned out because it is all FULL of sawdust.

Then we came for supper, and that made us FULL!!

After supper, a friend came over to visit with Rod while he worked on the groundseat of the saddle he is building this winter.  And then we had stuff and stuff for dessert.  Rod likes brown stuff.  I like white stuff.  And we put stuff on top of the stuff - thus the name...  And that made all three of us very FULL!

Looking at all this makes us very thankFULL to the One Who gives it all to us - good work to do, a place to do it, each other to work with, food to eat - the list goes on and on.  So tomorrow we will take a day off to worship Him, and that will be very restFULL...
