    • Take the last of the junipers to the dump.
    • Pick up a truckload of bark for the now naked beds where the junipers used to live.
    • Finish up the base cab for my bathroom renovation. Mount the doors, sand, stain, finish, take pictures to prove I did it
    • Make a solar heater for the pool out of PVC.
    • Take a hike in the hills with Starbuck.

    A little more landscaping. LOML is off doing something with friends so progress in the shop is a given. I'm stalled on a couple things due to a repair delay but need a revised BS circle jig and a blank glued up for a table top. That ought to keep me busy.

    My dad and I will be in our booth at an art show tomorrow all day...suppose to be 82 and sunny, but winds in the 15-25mph range. Glad we made some weights for the tent, I think we'll need them! Sunday, wife, kid and I are going to an equestrian grand prix at our friends farm...should be fun there too!

    Need to go get a sheet of MDF and start the extension table replacement for the new saw. Needs to be longer. Will build a torsion box out of 1/2 MDF. Gotta mow and I need to blow all the pecan seed twirlies off the roof. If not, they pack up in the valleys and turn to mud when it rains. LOML will be out all day tomorrow. So that will slow me down since I'll have to keep up with the dogs and what they are doing. Hope everyone has a great weekend! Jim.

    I made one in California but instead of PVC I used the black 1/2 thin walled pipe thats used for drip systems. It worked rather well. I just coiled it up in 50 foot rolls.

    Sorry for your loss Bob.

    Lets see, need to start on the TV Stand. Change oil in all 3 vehicles, not sure how they all hit at once. Mow yard, work on yard at beauty shop. Pick up a beef we had butchered. Church, take daughter to work and pick up, both days. Dang I never should have post it all, now I don't want to start.

    Don there is a race, you can watch it online tomorrow night. I think TNT will have it. Just go to nascar.com and find where. That's what I am going to do.
