    Friday 12-30 Edition

    Well we have made it to another Friday. Last one of the year, if the trusty calendar is correct. So for the last time this year, What is going on in your neighborhood?

    Myself, back to the tavern today for another feast of the season. Kids always love the trip. Last week was a blast. Got to knock out a small wall cabinet for the wife/ head of accounting. One more week and back to school.
    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.

    Shop time on my new storage/bench idea, friend coming over later today or tomorrow to help me get ready for some added insulation & baffles in the house attic. We're just doing some guesstimating, don't want to rush into anything, ya know ...might knock back a few cold ones as well

    Tonight, not sure, wife keeps asking if I get off she's got something up her sleeves. Tomorrow I'm going to be pulling wires for new lighting circuits and new circuits on the North Wall of the shop. Will be bringing in the new year with some friends. Sunday, need to get front bearings replaced on my wife's car. Since Monday is a bonus day off work, I may drop it off for new tires & alignment, then back to wiring in the shop.

    Not much happening in the Ellis household... may do a little work in and around the shop this weekend before the weather turns... trying to clean up the wood pile and get rid of some that's no good now... Sunday I'll be parked in front of the TV... my two main teams will be playing each other.... Titans and Texans.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    If schedules work out, I'm planning to install about 90 feet of rain gutter on the front of my sister and brother-in-law's house. (It's my sister's Christmas present from me and her oldest son.)

    Saturday night I'll be at a party with my buddy Jeff. With only about 5 or 6 exceptions, He and I have been together for every New Years Eve since about 1974.

    I also hope to get in some quality range time this weekend with my friends Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson.

    Unless you live in Samoa.

    We're probably staying in for the evening tomorrow. I found an app that will let me watch the ball drop live in NY so we can turn in at 10 PM instead of sitting up till midnight.

    Busy day on Sunday with three services to to video, lighting, sound for. Saturday should be mostly shop time.

    Working on the last pieces of my new dust collection pipes. (shop tour to follow). I put off a visit from the Ambassador a few weeks ago because the shop was a mess and I've been in his pristine shop and had dust collection envy......Just getting over pneumonia from breathing dust from the shop... Might get to start a bathroom remodel if I get to it.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    As joyous as the holidays are they have cut way too deep into my shop time . I would like to get some drawer assembly done today and tomorrow before the New Year's Eve festivities begin.
