    Friday 10/7 Edition

    Well Friday again and October, too boot. So what's going on in your neighborhood?

    Myself, I have a long weekend, all the way to Oct 17 Going to try and get some serious shop time. I am sure some farm stuff will get into the way though.
    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.

    We are off camping.

    Thanksgiving weekend for Canadians, Turkey on the spit over charcoal under the lovely falling leaves for me.

    But actually would prefer some time in my shop if i had a choice this year.
    cheers

    Playing the part of a single dad this weekend as the wife is out of town for a "girls weekend". No shop time until Sunday afternoon...but looking forward to some father-daughter time for sure!

    Tonight I'm suppose to help my brother and nephew move a slate top pool table to my nephew's basement. If I survive that I have a small utility table to build for my wife and getting Halloween decorations up around the house. Will be working on walls in the shop and may try to swap out the shop's electrical panel this weekend too.

    Oh, Happy Thanksgiving to our neighbors in the north.

    I'll have some shop time today working on our mahogany credenza. (Note to self: Post an update on FWW!).

    LOML is going shopping with a neighbor Saturday morning, so I'll be able to get some shop time then, also. I prefer to spend time with her when she's off work, but I'll have some time for sawdust this time.

    Sunday will be the usual with me fixing brunch, settling in for the race, then throw steaks on the grill for dinner.
