    It's Friday so whatcha got planned

    Back in the shop got to re-veneer an old treadle sowing machine for a client, fix the leg on a cabinate for an antuque dealer client and if time permits start on the chairs for the commision. Oh Ya, church sunday morn and the race from Taladega.

    Much time in the shop, but cleaning and organizing, mostly. Maybe get started on a project or two.

    I've caught a cold, so I'll be doing as little as possible

    Ummm, Honey porter.... That just sounds so good. At one of the local brew pubs I go to, they have a beer called, Ichthyasaurus. Basicall, when you order, you just say, "Give me an Icky"... It really is quite a good pale ale. There's a place out here called the 'Berlin Icthyasaurus State Park'. Basically these were whale sized dinosaurs...

    But back to the point of this thread.

    I'll probably:

    1) Paint some trim on the house
    2) Put together a cutting board or two.
    3) Work on the design for my dining room table and chairs
    4) Start framing in the corner for the new wood burning fireplace we ordered.

    I guess that should be enough...

    I have off work tomorrow and sunday, so between the trick or treaters, the usual errands, I gotta run to one store who sells Sikkens, I figure Ill get in some nice time in the shop, so I think Ill knock off a bedroom set, a new set of kitchen cabinets, do the bathroom vanity and make shutters for a front window to match the entranceway I made.

    Oh I forgot tomarrow evening we are going to block the street and all of the neighbors are going to have a block party. Pot luck dinner. Some of the parents will take the kids trick or treating and then they can all ride their bikes in the street. There will even be a bounce for the kids. Schnepf farms the local amusement part a few miles away will have fireworks too.
