    It's Friday! 3/2 Edition

    Well, Today I had lunch with my nephew that is home on leave from the Air Force. He's here until Wednesday, so will try to get together again with him this weekend. I'm planning to continue the cleanup of my shop. I finally got my reloading bench cleared off last night, so going to clean up my other metal cabinet and get it moved for storing reloading supplies. Tomorrow I think I'm going to go pickup some OSB to finish up the front corner of the shop so I can start getting cabinets built for that area. Will probably work on that Sunday as well.

    What's everyone else got going on?

    TGIF. I haven't got any decent shop time since weekend before last. My job is really cutting into my personal time . We've been trying to hire some help for almost 10 months .

    Wife and I are going out this evening for our 10th anniversary dinner. (Actually the date is March 1, but we delayed because of work)

    Congrats to you both!

    My wife is leaving town right about now and won't be back until sunday night so I'm a single dad tonight and tomrrow until I drop the little one off for a spend over at her cousin's. Then it's shop time until I want to go to bed. Then more shop time right when I wake up until the girl comes back around noon. I hope to get lots done on a fairly large comission I have exactly 60 days to complete...and I've just started.

    Well I won't be in the shop this week end, I could have gone to the NASCAR race since I was offered tickets but I have a work related commitment. (LOML told me to call em and say I can't make it and go to the Race but I made a commitment)....

    Two words: Gun Show.

    Hoping to find some deals on ammo and pick up a few accessories for a little carbine I picked up recently.

    The only thing I'll be doing that even remotely resembles woodworking will be doing a tune-up and adjustment on a friend's acoustic/electric guitar.

    Congrats Tony!

    my wife played hooky this afternoon from work, and since Ive been on a winning streak, I took her again to the racino today for lunch and some fun.
    I didnt score big today, but I walked out with 80 dollars more than I went in with, and she walked out with 30 more.
    Ordered in dinner, and tomorrow I have to start taking down paper in the bathroom.....hate that. then paint. hate that just as much.
    Before I left today, I had an exciting morning. I put 60 or so feet of gutter guards up on the back of my home and cleaned out the rain gutters. Nothing like scraping mud and guck from your gutters and have it splash into your hair and face. I love retirement.

    Tomorrow is laundry and shop day. Have some wiring issues to sort out and my bench board to finish. Yesterday got my air cleaner up high with some help. Picked up two tables that need refinishing and an antique sewing machine to restore. But first a commission to finish. Then a sermon to prepare for Sunday, which is also crammed with home visits. Two services a week [it is Lent] are eating big time into my schedule.

    And to keep things from getting really dull, I have a date tonight. Whodda thunk?
