    It's Friday! 10/5 Edition

    Well, it's creeped up on us again, but I'll take it.

    Not sure what we're doing tonight. It's usually date night, but my wife hasn't been feeling well. She's got to go see an oral surgeon on Tuesday, they think the cartilage in her jaw has popped out.

    Tomorrow I need to go get some wood and get started on face frames. Starting to run short on time, so my nephew is also coming over tomorrow. Going to pay him to remove wallpaper, skim-coat the walls, and get them ready for paint. Will probably work with him to finish gutting the bath first, but let him take it from there. Hoping to get tile started next week.

    What's everyone else got going on?

    My BIL's birthday today so out with him and our wives for a cold ones and then home for nice fire. Nothing else planned for the weekend except for lots of yardwork as the leaves and pine needles are flying all over now. FALL IS HERE!!

    I want to work on the two chairs I'm building, but I have to do something about the fence in the back yard, as my big dog knocked a board out of it, going after another dog. Fortunately, she's too big to go through a 6" gap. The fence was not well built (by my BIL) in the first place. Other than that, it's Canadian Thanksgiving, and the kids will be coming home Sunday and Monday.
    Cheers,

    even though we don't have anyone on the team, the family is going to the high school for homecoming/last home game tonight, so friday night lights it is... other than that, I've still got the planer issues to deal with, going to be sifting things around a bit out in the shop today.

    I'll be getting together with friends on Sunday as well.

    Hmm, either you already spent more money on something than they will and have to even things out or you're trying to get out of the dog house? Which is it?

    I have to replace a Neutral Safety switch (gear position sensor) in my 2001 Volvo S-40. Hopefully that goes quick and smooth. My granddaughter has a soccer game in the morning I'd like to go to then I'd like to get a little yard work done. Saturday evening my So-in-law is bringing his projector over and we'll hook that up and watch the Ohio State - Nebraska game out on the patio. GO BUCKS!!!

    The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta starts this weekend and runs through next weekend. I'll be there some on both weekends for sure. From the late 1980s until 2000, I was a crew member on one of several balloons at this event, taking the entire week off to work the balloons and be part of the show. I've not been to the Fiesta since I broke my back in 2001. (It pretty much put me out of the balloon-chasing business.) This will be the first Fiesta I've attended since then, and it'll my first one in a LONG time that I wasn't setting up, chasing, packing up, or flying in a balloon. I'll be sure to get some photos.

    Here are a few balloons I've been involved with over the years...

    A 200 foot long tennis shoe:



    An 11-story tall bald eagle:



    A very large polar bear. I don't recall all the stats, but you can get an idea of the scale when you see the people standing by the right rear foot:

    Looks like a good time, I remember seeing the festival as a youngin when we were passing though to AZ. Seems like the wind would really play havoc on some of those designs flight.
