    Friday 10-19 Edition

    Friday again, so whats on your plate for the weekend?

    Myself, fighting off a nasty bug I picked up somewhere. Hope to get some shop time and maybe a little yard work in before the weekend is over.
    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.

    Currently sitting in a motel room in Rock Springs, WY waiting for Jan to wake up. We're on our way to Ft Collins and Denver to deliver dining room tables. We'll spend the weekend with my youngest daughter in Denver, ride the Georgetown Loop dinner train, visit Aspen and the John Denver Memorial Gardens, then head home with a stop at the Golden Spike Historical Monument in Utah. I've got a huge mess to clean up in the shop when I get home to prepare for the next two projects - a piano bench and some chair repairs.

    No hunting unless I can slip away from the shop early. I got a ton of work in here. So weekend warrior.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Leaves, leaves, and more leaves! They're falling en masse now. I picked up three trailer loads yesterday, and there are at least that many down again today. Supposed to frost tonight, so even more will fall overnight. As of yesterday, eleven trailerfulls, and the oaks are just starting to turn. What I've picked up so far are maple and beech. Also, time to cut the hostas and daylilies back for the winter. Lotsa yardwork to do!

    Working again.
    Need to pick up a portable heater for the family room. The room is always real cold in the winter. Used to be the breezeway many moons ago. Folks have been telling me that the oil filled electric radiator styles work well

    Mostly doing catch-up around the house on things that didn't get done last weekend. I've got some computer-bases projects I need to get finished up.

    Ah, Rock Springs. That brings back some memories. We were playing at this fine establishment:



    While we were setting up our equipment for a one-week stay, someone broke into our of our vans and stole all of the other guitarist's clothes:



    Afterward, the cop realized he had locked his keys in the car. We had wire and knew how to use it. I can honestly say I've helped a cop break into his cruiser in Rock Springs Wyoming.
