    Seems like wood working has been usurped by other priorities lately. I miss my shop.
    Enneyhow, this week I have been dog sitting my daughter's two Yorkies while she and my wife are at a political conference in New Orleans. (if ye have been watching TV news, you know which one).
    Today and tomorrow is my Shrine Club's annual circus. I am MC and honorary ringmaster, gotta be there. Then tomorrow evening, after the third performance I have a three hour drive to my daughter's home where I'll stay the night then pick up the two wimmens from the airport Sunday a.m.
    Pushing it to Monday, I'll be handing out promo material for a candidate at a local political rally.
    Dog sitting, circus Ringmaster, politiks. Do I lead a strange and eclectic life or what?

    Tonight I'm taking the kid to see "how to tame a dragon" and then to get some food somewhere. tomorrow I must get some shop time at the lathe...I need to make a few things for an upcoming show with my dad. Dinner with my FIL and his wife for his 71st birthday saturday night and then Sunday will be some yard work and then shop time. Might need to mow for the first time this spring!

    I've got a lot of grouting to do on the fireplace, but it sure will be nice to get a project completed for a change!

    Have to get the irrigation system running for the landscaping. Some stupid critters seem to really enjoy chewing on the plastic tubes, so I've got leaks every where.

    And, be watching the Nascar, when I can!

    apparently I will be painting.... think I will enlist a child or three to help so it gets done quicker cause who the heck wants to spend all weekend inside painting when it is supposed to be gorgeous out!
    Though with all the painting at least I won't have to feel bad about not going to the gym... and maybe we can get a bike ride in too.
    Would like to try and get some shop time in myself as well... we shall see. We are 1 month until our first faire of the season

    Like Brent, I'll be working on the irrigation system if my filter housing comes in. Seems I didn't get it drained last year and it froze and cracked over the winter. Need to finish up the overhead guard/dc hood for the new saw. I've worked a little after work during the week getting the blast gate built (all clear materials...we'll see how it works and holds up). Need to get the "ballast" end of the contraption re-balanced. Also need to get a new drive belt for the lawn tractor, a new spark plug, and get my core charge back on the battery I got for it last weekend. Then mow the yard. Supposed to be a beautiful weekend. Hope every one has a great one! Jim.

    I'm replacing all the sod in the front and back yards, painting the exterior of the house, scraping all the popcorn texturing off the ceilings inside the house, painting the interior of the house, putting a new seal coat on the driveway, and re-grouting the tile in the kitchen and dining room.

    Fortunately, I've got some friends coming over this weekend. I'll get them to help.

    Not if they don't figure out how to open the duck tape so they can put the head light back in.
