On the 2nd of October my older daughter got married. As she lives in Illinois, we decided to take a road trip to go to the wedding. 3 days of driving for anyone who cares. We had the time so why not do it. I am not from Illinois. My family moved there after my mother passed away, so going 'home' doesn't appeal to me. It's nice to see family, but it's just not home any more.
On the way we stopped at a few puzzlers homes to see friends and what they are up to.
Our first stop was in Georgia to see Mat Nedeljko. His workshop has got to be the cleanest one I have ever seen. The floors were so dust free and there was not a speck of wood dust anywhere! He showed us his beautiful work using an antique french designed machine to cut marquetry that he built by hand. I've not been so impressed in quite a while.

And now I'm off to enjoy Boca Bash! Happy puzzling everyone!
