    December First already!

    So... I've spent the day Winterizing.

    Got all the patio and deck furniture stored in the barn.

    Got the snow shovels out.

    Got the snow blower out, serviced it, and got it running.

    Took the mower deck off the tractor.

    Put the plow and chains on the tractor.

    Put boots, gloves, socks, and a blanket in the back of the car (in case we get stuck or stranded somewhere).

    Put the ice scrapers and de-icer in the car.

    All that's left to do is put a few bags of sand in the truck bed.

    I think I'm pretty much ready for Winter, now. How 'bout you?

    No snow shovels yet, I'm still riding the Bike , but there is a chill in the air , need to turn the heat up in the shop.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Was planning to get new tires on the truck this weekend and also get the weights back on the tractor, remove the mower deck, and get the blade ready to go on.

    Tracks are on the skid-steer, oil changed in all the other equipment. Bring on the snow, we can move it six or seven foot at a time.
    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.
