Gift from Santa

Well Santa didn't bring me a roof yet, but Marla is working on it. Look what he did bring! It's a scissor lift!
If you have ever been at the top of a 12 foot ladder operating a sawzall over your head, you can appreciate the utility of this piece of equipment. It has a 20 foot working height and can easily lower heavy things that have been cut from the ceiling of our beloved textile mill. STARworks friend and CPNC board member Harold Vanderveer sold us this wonderful thing for almost nothing, he even threw in new batteries to boot. As I write this, Mac and Phil from Wet Dog Glass are using it to frame in the walls for our new bathrooms. It sure beats working on ladders.
