Demo is so much fun. Was there a fly-over by the USAF – I thought I see some trails in the sky. Can’t blame them for being jubilant.

BTW – boy, those are some nice (door) knockers, too.

One more thing – where is the snow? Last I heard, TN was closed all last week due to the snow. Heck, it looks nice from those pics!

Keep those pictures coming.

-- No matter how many times I measure, I always forget the dimensions before I cut.

BillyJ….snow is gone now….finally…....The governor of TN was going to declare it a state holiday…”Hxxxxx Kitchen Day” and give all of the government workers the day…I thought I saw a few T-shirts with it on it…not sure if it happened or not.
and oh yes the nice (door) knockers vid is in the futures….love that movie…

You should have hired the big guy from the clip to help. He could have made short work of all that demolition.
