    Friday 12/23 Edition

    Once again we have made to to yet another Friday. Big holiday weekend for lots of folks is near. Travel and the whole ball of wax, could be involved. So I have to ask, what's going on in your neighborhood?

    Myself, will be heading to the shop here in just a bit. Few things to do. Taking the kids over to the tavern for the all you can eat lunch. Nothing like grilled pork chops and all the fixins. Will be doing family things for the rest of the weekend. It is just shot, with all this holiday stuff. Lots to do and no time to do it. 2 more weeks until classes resume.
    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.

    Buried in church activities to be sure! But gonna try for a little shop time today. Mental health is important. That big building out back with all the tools is my asylum.

    So much to do! I'm running the AV booth for four services this weekend. Dinner at my son's house. Then, I must get some shop time in too!

    I am hoping for no more surprises this weekend. Pop's who just turned 83 was picked up last night about 10 by the ambulance. Got a call from Mom he could not breath and was chocking. I took off pick her up and headed for the hospital. They were quick and got him breathing and we were back home by 12. So I will be in the shop working , hopefully get some time to paint and set up my new lath.
    BTW I am talking up a Bike trip to NS this summer with some friends .
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Prayers coming your way - hope this proves to be an isolated incident and not related to any other issues.

    Got 5 days off, starting today. Going to get some shop time in, but mostly organizing the office today, too cold out in the shop area. Already had Xmas with my family, heading to my inlaws tomorrow. Probably do some cooking this weekend in the dutch oven or slow cooler, just not sure what yet.

    Dave, glad to here your dads ok.
