    Friday 9/30 Edition

    Well, we made it to another Friday. So what is going on in your neighborhood?

    Me, got lots of odds and ends to do. Need to run to the lumber guy and pick up some maple. Might catch some football,.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Yes we did Steve. I'm leaving in a few hours to start off hunting season in Va on the farm. Just going down to set up a few scrapes and drippers. May hunt tomorrow or may not . Just received a call from the Spanish down town a few seconds ago and they need some work done. I've worked with them for the last 10 years. So I am not sure If I will stay down till Saturday evening or come back.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Pretty much a free weekend. Not quite sure what I'll do. I finished the rolling under bed drawer for the bed I made for my grandson so I'm ready to start another project.
    Cash restrictions are not going to let me start building Norm's router table right now. I may start on the jewelry box my daughter wants or I may move my lumber rack. I may even start on the Shaker cabinet that Dave Richards did in sketchup. I've squirreled away more than enough cherry or maple to build it.

    Friday: LOML has the day off, so we'll have a day full! Slept in this morning to prepare for a run to Tallahassee to do a little shopping, then an early dinner at Outback.

    Saturday: LOML and a neighbor are doing to hit some yard sales early, so I'll head to the shop to work on the Credenza. I have the mahogany cut to size for the top panel and will bandsaw the radius pieces - maybe even get them glued up.

    Sunday: Pretty much the usual routine. I'll make brunch for us, then prepare for the NASCAR Cup race at Dover. Haven't decide what to prepare for dinner yet, but most likely will be steaks on the barbee. Being outside should be nice since the forecast high on Sunday is 75 - sounds great after a Summer of record heat!

    My BIL has a couple trees that needs to come down, including a black walnut. He is going to give me the wood. Unfortunately it isn't big enough to get any lumber, but I should get plenty of turning projects out of it. Waiting on FedEx right now to deliver the lathe and stand. Won't be able to turn this weekend, as part of the shipment won't come until next week.

    One way to make the dog a good pet is fire up the grill and cut pieces off the meat and talk with him and share as you cook.

    Funeral this morning, friend from church. Then into town to pick up a loveseat we ordered about 6 weeks ago. Shop time tomorrow (hopefully), church on Sunday followed by more shop time!

    We had a cat (now in kitty heaven) that would lay by the grill when I fired it up. She wasn't particularly interested in steak or chicken, but seemed to sense when I was cooking kielbasa and wanted her share of it! I'd cut off a few pieces, quarter them, let them cool and she would dive in!!!
