    Over to BIL's house tonight to sit on the porch and sip some of the good stuff. Early tomorrow a long bike ride under the remaining blue moon...then 4-5hrs in the shop assembling and rubbing oil on maple and then a nap. Dinner out with the LOML Saturday. Sunday will be rubbing more oil on maple and then a cookout at the MIL's with the whole family. Monday relaxing and delivering some finish projects. Suppose to cool off too!

    Wedding on Saturday and packing the van with Jake's things Saturday evening. Leaving early Sunday morning.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Doing some garage saling this morning. Picked up a 1935 Singer sewing machine for the wife (Got her a 1938 model a few weeks ago, too), and a couple other small items. No tools this week, though.

    If he buys enough singer's to match his number of planes he's gonna need another shed for sure! My mom still uses my grandmas from the 30s as well. Just stiched up couple of things for me acutally.

    I've got 3 big things on my punch list this weekend:
    Finish gluing up and then planing down as many cutting boards as I can get out of what I've got 'ready' to go. (there's more planed, but not cut to length for glue ups yet). Finish cutting and then assemble the jake's chairs and get them off of my workbench. and rebuild my shop doorway and door.

    Date night tonight with my wife. Saturday and Sunday, I'm hoping to get the concrete board up around the tub this weekend and maybe get some tile going up, still need to grab a couple of 2x4's to finish out the large niche. Monday my Nephew and I may be heading down to a friends house to shoot trap and such. I haven't shot trap in 20 years, so should be interesting.

    That is a nice one, I used to have one about like it. Those direct drive ones are hard to find too.

    Actually, I am packing for a vacation, some of which will be in Michigan, visiting a few ol' galoots some of you might know.
