    Friday! Friday! Friday! 4/27 Edition

    Did I mention it's FRIDAY?

    Have today off. Getting ready to head down to the JD dealership for a new ignition switch for the tractor, then to the grocery store to get some ribs to smoke today. We have a PB event tomorrow night, so got to run around and get some supplies for it.

    Opened the pool yesterday and got it ready, so mostly trying to get the chems balance out on it this weekend and doing some stuff around the yard if it's not raining. May get out to the shop to do some more organizing Sunday.

    What's everyone else got going on?

    Might fit some WW in this weekend, maybe. Tomorrow is field trip with church group to tour the Old Idaho Penitentiary, then a walk through the Botanical Gardens. Preceded by a lunch in the park. After church on Sunday Jan and I are going to the fair grounds for Experience Idaho to see if we can pick up any ideas for a few day trips this summer.

    Lotso gardening stuff and general property cleanup to do this weekend.

    Might build a few more drawers for the shop. I've been spending a little time out there everyday working through straightening it up a bit at a time.

    how sad is retirement.
    Cant think of anything special Im doing since every day is basically the same now.

    Oh, I will watch the Rangers in the second round(hoooraaaay!!!!) of the playoffs sat night. And I will schlep the frames to my sons home and install them with some doors as I undertake the largest project and maybe the last project I tackle.

    and tonight, I decided holding grudges and not speaking with people I grew up with, well, whats the sense. Life is too short. So tonight, the wife and I are going out to dinner with a couple (my wife and the other wife are still good friends) that we havent gone out with since 1976. Yes, 1976. Even though our kids grew up together, went to the same schools, and we live within 1/2 mile of each other, again,(we grew up next to each other also in another city), we had a falling out over a ride to the subway, and that was that. Stupid silly stuff. I think its been long enough.

    Starting the day with a CLEAN shop. And a load of laundry done, chicken fried up ahead, and a pie baked. Not lunch time yet! About to go out and play mad scientist with dyes. Meeting this afternoon. Birthday party tonight. Tomorrow is get ready for Sunday day. Early in the AM I need to spray weeds - again. Sunday is a work day. Sunday night there is a community sing along at the park. Hope I have enough energy left to take it in.

    SWMBO is making me do light work in the garden. We had snow this week, and ice pellets this morning, so I will not be doing much in my unheated shed. Next week it's supposed to warm up to 12º or so. Maybe I'll do some ww then.
    Cheers,
