    Friday, holiday weeknd edition

    Morning gang. It's a holiday weekend for most. Canada should be today, their Independence day and in the US our Independence day Monday.

    So what is planned? Hear it is going to be hot in most places.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Heading over to Vermont this morning to spend part of the day with my oldest daughter. Saturday I have to replace the solenoid and starter on the lawn tractor. Going to bypass the seat safety switch like Frank did. It drives me nuts.
    Sunday we are having most of the kids and grandkids over for a cookout. Burgers, sausage, hot dogs and chicken. Maybe a pork loin as well.
    Monday we will take my granddaughter Abby to the local parade and fireworks.

    My wife is going in for knee replacement surgery on tuesday. She will be in the hospital for 3 or 4 days. So the balance of Monday will be spent listening to my wife go over the " you will do this while I'm in the hospital" list.
    I'm sure all will be ok but your positive thoughts will be appreciated.

    Well,

    Not a heck of a lot on the schedule.

    Will probably have to spend a good deal of the weekend catching up on some work/work.

    Going to smoke a pork butt on Saturday.

    Need to get the toy swap items done.

    Thats about all...

    Trumbull County Fair tomorrow - A friend is showing his six horse Percheron hitch.

    Sunday at my niece's for a birthday party (her husband's, and both kids').

    Monday, I might get back into the shop - unless there's yardwork. Grass isn't growing too fast right now - no rain for the past couple weeks...

    Firing up the Margarita machine tomorrow and having a few friends over. Suppose to be in the 100's, so lots of pool time. Might have to stop and get some ribs and sausage to smoke this weekend.

    The city fireworks show is only a few blocks away, so going to watch it from my deck, though I might walk over for the car show.

    going to be hanging siding on the shop this weekend... Since I migrated to VA my version of the nosy neighbor has been giving my wife grief about the shop and other stuff. Including wanting my shop torn down. Well, suffice to say that aint happenin... but I am willing to admit that I'm due to put the siding on finally. just priced some sheet goods at the Blue Borg and I'm going with pre-primed 3/8" stuff similar to t-111 (might even Be that, but with a different name). The CFO agrees, and so we're going to steal the middle son's new wood hauler and pick up 20 sheets of it.
