    Question It's Friday, so what ya'll got planned for the weekend

    My normal week end, in the shop Sat all day, church in the AM then back in the shop for the rest of the day.
    So what are you all up to.

    Have a pre tailgate party to go to tonight for the Iowa State v. Iowa football game tomorrow. Will probably watch the game tomorrow and then get some shop time in. I was a single dad all last weekend, so my wife said I should get some more shop time this weekend!

    I'm finshing up some lathe pieces for a comission and then I can do whatever I want...

    Weekend

    Friday:
    I'll finish installing my PSI TSGUARD this afternoon and get some photos. You can see a little of what's happening on my ShopCam. LOML will be home from work about 5:30. We'll chill out for a bit, then go out for dinner.

    Saturday:
    LOML and I will start the day with a workout at the YMCA, then grab a little breakfast. The rest of the day will be a little work around our yard. Of course, I'll be front and center for the NASCAR Cup race at RIR to finish the day.

    Sunday:
    Our usual coffee (for me) and hot tea (for her) with the Sunday newspaper to start the day. Then, I'll prepare breakfast as usual. After that, we plan to sit on the porch and watch the wind blow. That is, until it's time for me to fire up the grill for some ribeyes! Yum!!!

    Friday, pick up front axle spindle for my Oliver, install it and get it back in the field.
    Saturday, haircut, ceiling and insulation in my new shop installed. Cut metal for peaks on West and East sides of the new shop.
    Sunday, clean up yard around shop, go fishing.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Friday night lights tonight, home game, so get to go stake out some bleecher space and shout "Go Bears!" a lot. Thinking about making one of those silly D 'fence' cutouts for homecoming. (just to embarass my son, )

    Going to spend the day out in the shop tomorrow And most of sunday, at least that's the plan. I worked up a skp plan for the island, now I get to go execute it and hopefully will have it in the house by Monday (assembly tomorrow, a quick coat of mineral oil (easily renewed and 'quick' to dry vs poly) on the top and it should be good to go. Going to go for a coat of primer and some latex on the legs. Have to go to the local hardware store for that (a little more expensive, but I like to keep them in business vs the BORG)

    Hope you avoid the flu, but do I hear a stealth gloat in progress?

    Replacing fuel lines on my daughter's old car to get it sold; sorting boxes and boxes and boxes of cut-offs in the FIL's shop; clearing space for some rough cut lumber on the rack; and finally visiting with my parents that will be in town.

    Bill, I like the shopcam, should help keep you honest. You got a Polaroid photo to tape up in front of it when your hiding from the world (like in mission impossible)?

    I've thought about using an endless loop video of some of the frames captured during the day and let it run all night. That would really keep 'em guessin'!!!
