    Another B-Day dinner tonight that friends are doing for me that couldn't make it to the celebration last Monday.

    Tomorrow going to my nephew's new house to install flooring and work on anything else he needs done so he can get moved in next week. He bought a bank-owned property that needed some work, but he got a great deal on it. Mostly needed paint and flooring, only a few things to fix.

    Tomorrow night we're going to a wine tasting party (our first) at some friends house.

    Sunday I may try to make it to the range...been having withdraws since we've been doing nothing but house hunting lately. Might even fit in some new shop planning in the afternoon.

    Not much wood working Im afraid.

    Gotta rip the dash out of the old pathfinder.

    Gotta get our sailboat ready for vacation. I'm afraid we've neglected it for a while and I've got a lot of work to do on it. Bottom paint, motor maintenance, new lines, complete clean up inside/out, waxing... Gonna take a while...

    Picked up the appliances for the second half of the kitchen this week and will start building the cabinets this weekend. Other than that I'm not doing anything.

    I got the bit from Infinity today that I needed to work on the replacement arms for the chair MY WIFE is refurbishing. Need to do that. Maybe plane the remainder of the QSWO to get it smoothed out. Have I mentioned how much I love my Delta 52-580 lunchbox planer that I finally hooked up last weekend after it having it for almost 6 years!!! It really did a nice job. The pattern bit I got won't fit in the first drawer I have for router bits, so I need to pull the second one apart and drill and install the grommets in it so I can keep from ruining this bit. Second drawer is taller than the first.
    We have 2 rescue dogs going to their new homes this weekend, and another going to a different foster home so we will be down to just our 2 personal dogs during the time of Glenna's surgery and recovery time. I'll be off for a week starting mid afternoon Monday to be home for her.
    Need to draw up the designs for the computer desk I want to build this weekend. I need to take a night stand apart to study the structure. I'm trying to copy that style somewhat. Will hopefully do some of the work on that next week while Glenna is sleeping/resting/or otherwise doesn't need me. Oh, and cleaning the house, grocery shopping and taking care of my bride. Jim.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Actually Chuck, It's been rather nice the last few days. High 80's low 90's. That'll change this week end supposed to be low 100's. The pool has even cooled down due to the lower day and night temps.
