I want to thank everyone for hospitality, courtesy and great food, even home baked cookies! I spent most of my time gawking in awe at Mongo’s shop, his artifacts, and clever repurposing of old stuff into new uses. I’d have stolen the too-around tractor seat stool if I could. I was especially intrigued by the old truck set up to house the AC unit and the bed served as a porch/deck with bbq grill and chairs. The restroom was cool, I didn’t get pictures in there, but I wanted to. I’m posting pictures around the shop and at lunch time. No captions because I don’t have names for anyone. I’m sure you’ll recognize Wrenchbender.
... gawking in awe at Mongo’s shop, his artifacts, and clever repurposing of old stuff into new uses.
Glad you got some of the close-up. I was enlarging others' as much as I could to see the walls.
Mongo and his wife (and probably kids now) are *amazingly* creative, clever and talented. If he has a spot somewhere on-line where he posts more images, I bet you'd get a big kick out of it. Some of his stuff we've seen that he's done are incredible. (Even the naming of his boys ... you'll have to ask him that. )

So glad you came with George (Wrenchbender Ret.) on Saturday and that you had such a good time! Thanks for taking pictures and adding in here. We did get to chat for just a bit, but sorry I didn't get to say goodbye when you all had to leave.
I might have been just a bit distracted.
Will see you whenever we get to meet up again for another of the yet to happen shows this fall.
