    It's Friday - 3/1/2013 Edition

    March? Yup, It's March already...

    Today I've got a full afternoon of meetings, probably take my wife to dinner so she can un-wind, this is one of her busiest times of the year at work.

    Tomorrow I'm going to finish pre-painting trim and finish touching up the walls and get them painted, then install trim. My wife has some things to hang on the walls, so will get those up as well.

    Need to cut and install the crown moulding and sand down the vanity to put a coat of sealer on. Will start cutting out door fronts and drawers for the vanity.

    May drive down to the JD, Kubota, and Mahindra dealers tomorrow and look at compact tractors first hand.

    So what's everyone else got going?

    Spending more time in the kitchen than shop today - doing some prep work to get ready for company. Not sure how LOML will want to celebrate after work this evening. Yesterday was her birthday and today is her last day of work - ever!

    Saturday, we'll prepare for the arrival of some FWW family members. They should be here around 4pm, so I'm sure there will be lots of tall tales and sipping!

    Sunday, the guests will continue south on their getaway. I'll settle in for the NASCAR Phoenix race, while LOML catches up on her reading.

    Monday will be the first day of the rest of our lives for sure. LOML will NOT have to hop up and head to work! Yay for retirement!!!

    Congrats to Mrs. Arnold!

    Closest thing to woodworking I've got on the schedule is to hang a coat rack at my sister's house. (Hey, it's a wooden rack.)

    Might wander over to the Gun Show at the state fairgrounds to look at overpriced guns, ammo and accessories, since it's only about a mile from my apartment. I'll also probably take advantage of the predicted good weather and head to the Shooting Range State Park to sight in a new rifle scope I got recently.

    A few other possibilities may come up this weekend, but I'll keep those close to the vest for now.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Woodworking show in Columbus. 175 mile drive (each way)...show was a total waste of time. Shoulda just gone to Hartville. Much more to be seen, and do, there.

    $5 parking, two $12 tickets, saw the whole show in 30 minutes. Didn't buy anything at all.

    Took the wife for a good German dinner, and that was it.
