After the cruse we flew home and spent a few weeks at home. While home we spent most of our time getting ready for our travels in 2013. Susan got to spend a few days with her mother in Chula Vist and I got time to work on the desk that I started building 7 years ago. I decided to make some concessions to the desk, leaving out the secretary part in the top drawer, and to forego the Newport Shell carvings, four of them. I will do the carvings someday when I can dedicate 2 straight months in my shop. I spent most of my times while we were at home putting on a rubbed oil finish on the desk. We then removed the dinning room table and put the desk in the trailer.
