    Tonight we have our nephew for a spend over with our daughter.

    Tomorrow I get some shop time in the morning to finish up my new lathe tool/grinder cab and cut up some blanks. Then we will watch the IA State v. Iowa football game out at a friends farm with a bonfire and cookout to follow. FALL is HERE!!!

    Steve...you gonna make it thru the winter with no auctions? Do you recognize withdrawal symptoms?
    Meanwhile, I'm working on the buffet refinish for loml. My first try at French Polish so I'm kinda sneaking up on it. She is happy so far so guess I'll be OK.

    I'm going to have that long overdue budget session with the exchequer... and we're going to set the punch list on the house. Quotes for the new roof sometime next week, then it is time for renovation. July is coming and we have a ton of work to do.

    It's another 3 day weekend for me. Going appliance shopping tonight, Nebraska Furniture Mart is having a 30 month no interest deal. Picking up a friends trailer tomorrow and loading up tools Saturday or Sunday morning. Take possession of the house on Sunday afternoon, so hauling most them over and starting on projects there, same for Monday.

    Same things I was supposed to finish last weekend.

    Except for tomorrow - spending the entire day in a class on starting your own business given by the Small Business Administration and SCORE.

    Working on the pie safe I started Saturday. Sunday going to my daughters house out by the seacoast for a cook out.
    Steve has got me so interested in auctions that I've been searching the local papers every day for one. I'm not sure why but there used to be 4 or 5 old time auction houses around here but they have closed up. Can't find one anywhere.
