    Leaving in the early am tomorrow to go spend the weekend with one of our best friends and his family...museums for kids and adults, eating, shopping, eating and then a few cold ones on the deck...looking forward to it too...last couple of weeks have been long.

    Got to test out the new belts on the mower and get the mowing done tonight. Probably will be moving boxes of stuff down to the garage for my wife and helping her go through it (official spider killer) to get ready for a garage sale. May get some shop cleaning done on Sunday and even get a cabinet or two built for storage.

    My folks are in town, so doing some BBQ this weekend. Probably not much in the way of projects...

    Installing mobile bases on band saw, T/s, drum sander, and assembly tables. After this....we are totally mobile.

    Funny story......real quick....went to HF this morning in Daytona Beach to pick up 3 mobile bases. I couldn't find them, so I grabbed a guy to ask where they were, turned out to be the store manager. He said he always gets asked about them, but couldn't get the warehouse to ship them. Then the teleprompter excuse they always use, the stores never carry everything that is on the website.

    So I walked over to the sandpaper aisle and out of the corner of my eye, I spot a stack of about 24 of them lying under the power tool section, so I grabbed 3 of them.

    Walked back to the store manager who was speaking to another guy and he noticed me, I told him of the find, not to rub it in his face, but to let him know what the mdse is and where it was.

    Turns out the guy he was speaking to was the District manager.....oooops!

    And he was not a happy camper. The DM kept apologizing and I told him I used to be with Lowes and opened about 20 stores for them, and you can't memorize everything!

    Trying to save the Sm's butt!

    Any-who, sorry for the hijack....just wanted to share the story. Trust no one.....just your own eyes I guess

    Too wet to mow - still have standing water in parts of the yard - so I'll be trying to weed out some beds, and get the twelve yards of mulch out of the driveway and into the beds and around some of the trees.

    Probably gonna need at least another ten yards before I'm through...
