    Friday 12/9 Edition

    We made it to another Friday and closer to the big Holiday season. So, what is going on in your neighborhood?

    Me, I am off on a rust expedition here in just a bit. There are old tools out there and I am to find them. 4 more weeks off, so I won't bore you with the daily activities.

    For those of you making gifts, they done yet?
    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.

    Getting over a couple days of some kind of bug. The Christmas prep is kicking in; friends and family visits. Should be a great time. Takes a bite out of shop time though

    Friday: Do some toning on the top panel of the credenza; cut final dimensions on shelves for it and edgeband them, hopefully.

    Saturday: A little shopping with LOML to check on options for an LED flat screen TV, blu-ray player, etc. for the family room.

    Sunday: Sleep in for a while, then I'll prepare brunch as usual. Hopefully, just a lazy day for a change.

    As far as I know, I'm finished with gift items, although I'm thinking about doing some key chains if the urge strikes!

    Planning on final mudding touch-ups on the office tonight, then a final sanding tomorrow and perhaps primer and paint. May also finish up wall paper removal in the master so I can begin wall patching. Have my company's Holiday party tomorrow night, which is the first of many weekends of Christmas parties for us. My wife's B-Day is on Sunday, luckily she does her own shopping, I'm just required to drive to choice of eatery and other celebratory festivities for the 'said' time frame. Also got some xmas shopping left to finish up since we're getting together with my family next weekend.

    Saturday morning going to the hospital for another MRI on my back. Something new is going on so the Doc wants to check it again. So I'll pop the valium the Doc gave me and have them grease me up and squeeze my fat butt into the tube I never realized I was claustrophobic until the first time I had one of these tests

    Sunday we are going over to one of my daughters for Sunday dinner. Will probably get some shop time in somewhere.

    Working, Saturday and estimating. Hopefully get some painting done of the wolf #3 Sunday.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I think I can actually take the weekend off, so might get some work done on the doors for the shed.

    Probably do some design work for a built in entertainment center.

    Have to do some yard work as well. Be nice to get outside and out of this darn chair for a change.
