    Hi folks! I was asked since I hadn't been in here to let you know what I have been up to.I had some medical problems earlier this summer, and was in the hospital for about six weeks! Gave myself a concussion and I basically had to learn how to walk again!:eek: I don't know if you all know but I do bolt jeweling, but when I got home it was so hot in my place,(no A/C!) so I was somewhere cool most of the day! So I wasn't getting much of that done. I did take enough time a little at a time, to rebuild a Win Model 70, 22-250, I put it in a thumbhole stock and pillar bedded it. And also refinished the stock as I don't care for Boyd's finish the put on there stocks. The original stock has been "fixed" too many times and they had ruined the inside of it! It was a a bit scratched up on the outside but I sanded it down and gave it 6 coats of Tru-oil and it came out OK! But it will have to be bedded to whoever buys it,(it's up for sale!). Haven't had a chance to go shooting yet, but maybe after the first! So sorry for the long winded post but I thought I would let you all know that I an still at it a little at a time! Good shooting!:) Doug
