          Thanks for all the kind thoughts guys. I'll have some more pictures near the end of the weekend or Monday at the latest. Got some large shelves (5 X 2 feet and six feet tall) put on wheels and did some more cleaning and organizing. Organization is my weak area.

          Oh, put out a little mouse today too. So far I've evicted a little bat and a little mouse. Not very big of me, I know!

              Totally up to Karl but I'm not sure he's ready for that just yet, the revival center is nice, but it needs a thing or two to be able to go #1 or #2. (or 3 but we won't talk about going 3, .....or #4, please don't go #4 on the property.)


              Where'd you drop that mouse off Karl? They're like cats they always find their way back home, sometimes they bring friends :/

                          Haha, did you read my previous post about the powers of John himself not being able to blow the house down? I think John did, said "challenge accepted" Barney Stinson style and talked to his boss about a relocation!



                          Karl has done/is doing a wonderful job of securing the facility. It's the kind of place you don't want to break into because you'll have just as much or more trouble breaking back out if the tripwires don't get you first! It's the kind of place you would want to be in in the event of a zombie apocalypse, tornado, tsunami, earthquake, or on the day your baby momma finds out you lost your job and the weeks child support didn't go through. :0 lol... He could totally contract the building out to area 51 as a secure storage facility when their security measures are compromised.

                            John asked, "What about hosting Ohiostiva there?"

                            Maybe someday, but not anytime soon. The "facilities" are somewhat limited, to say the least. Cleanup is not finished yet, and will involve going up into the rafters/attic and getting rid of all the blown in insulation combined with coon and bat poo, and whatever else has settled into the mess. I have an idea for limiting the dust and debris, but have yet to try it.

                            I haven't even started my "sink" yet. I have the utility sink and an idea, but no construction has begun.

                            It's just slow going, that's all. I got all winter to clean the insides. Now I need to get that roof patched to eliminate the worst leaks. Not condensate mind you, but holes in the roof and metal panel seams.

                                Pat said, "Better watch out Karl. John will turn this into his Zulu ministry headquarters!!"

                                Ha! He is welcome to make it his temporary HQ while he is there.

                                Latest pics are here.

                                When I was in Friday, I found this walking stick just inside the door:



                                During the morning, I kept hearing noises from the pulpit area. It sounded like a coon or something mid-size. Turned out it was this little guy:



                                Church mice aren't that quiet, especially when they're trying to jump out of a plastic container! A closeup:



                                I let him go outside after he crawled into a piece of conduit. I left it in the grass and eventually he left.

                                I finished putting the large shelves together and made a rolling base for them:



                                Here it is with stuff on it. Check out the Festiva parts I've moved to my new space!:



                                One final pic:



                                I need to organize better and that last original desk-like piece will be put on wheels too.
