    Friday 10-26 Edition

    Friday once again, what do you have planned for the last weekend of October?

    Myself, I WAS going to pick the family up at the airport tomorrow. Appears Sandy has them locked down on a small island off the coast of Florida. Looking like shop time for me, until Sunday, when they are now scheduled to return.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Working tonight and tomorrow. I took Sunday off for a church function and to take a ride to Rockler to pick up my new planer

    Going to fill all the gasoline cans today for the generator just in case we lose power from Sandy.

    Getting ready to be gone a week. Laundry, loading the car, packing, hair cut, etc. Plus getting ready for Sunday. Off line next week. Delivering my last commission work, meetings, a class, my Dad's service, legal stuff from selling the house, voting, picking up the last of the personal stuff, and a couple of promised repairs. Plus two days of driving to and fro. Leaving Sunday after services. Scheduled to be back on Friday night.

    looks like some kind of stomach virus has decided what Im doing today and tomorrow.
    I still have to get some work sanded and recoated today, must get it all inside before all the rain hits and then I cant move it out of the garage.
    when did all this woodworking become a real job for me?

    Quiet night at home today...shop time on Saturday morning then the afternoon with the wife and my BIL, SIL and Hurricane Sandy...errr....my MIL Sandy! for some cold ones before heading home to a warm fire. Sunday will be shop time and the final yard cleanup...at least I hope it will be the last.

    Steve sounds like Sandy is packin a punch...hope they stay safe and dry!

    Just heard from them Jeff. Sandy went to the east of them by a bit. They have no power but everything else is OK. Big party with all the trapped travelers. Making new friends.

    That's good news, Steve. Just shop time for me... I hope! I need to get a tool handle turned so I can try out my new turning tool!
