    Well, It be Friday - 4/12/2013 Edition

    The clouds are supposed to clear off and warm up into the 60's here this weekend. Need to take my wife up to get her reading glasses tomorrow morning, may take her to her favorite brunch spot. I'll probably head home and break the new mower in on it's first mow of the year. I've got some trim to finish touching up in the master bath, then cut some crown for the cabinets in there. Also need to finish changing the rear shocks on my wife's car and looks like I may need some new tie rod ends on mine as well as shocks all the way around, so may start that. If I have time left on Sunday, I've got a couple of planes I want to get sharpened and tuned up.

    What's everyone else got going?

    Well i hope to get some life this weekend.

    Last weekend spent whole weekend making sausage have not even had a moment to post a pic or two or write up about the first time experience.
    Later i am off to LV to purchase my bday present for my wife to give me.
    Then if the weather wakes up to the fact that its supposed to be spring and quits the winter perhaps i can see my shop. Otherwise its finishing off the taxes. Oh i hate April and tax time.

    Supposedly retired, I've been burning midnight oil all week on consulting jobs...sixty hours so far and still going strong. I sense a disturbance in the shop force, since the compressor fund is now going to overflow. This weekend will be also shopping for a new lawn mower. The old Honda HRX self-propelled doesn't propel any more and it's too heavy to push. Over six hundred dollars to replace the transmission in that thing after only seven years seems a bit much. It's planned obsolescence at its best/worst. My old Craftsman ran for 15 years.

    Tonight dinner and a movie with the wife and kid. Tomorrow morning shop time for me while the wife and kid get manicures. After a light lunch the daughter's first communion and a get together after at a good friends house who's son is also happens to be first communioning (is that a word?) The kids are almost brother and sister, born just 2wks apart and have played together ever since. My wife and his mom are life long friends as well. There will be some embarrassing photos of them both for all to see of course to go along with plenty of food, drink and cake.

    Sunday I will start with some shop clean up and then I have someone coming to film me turning a bowl from cutting the log to finish and probably a top or something small. My footage along with other artist's/crafts people's will help promote an upcoming show I'm part of next month...I'll get a link up here for the vid once its completed....pretty excited about this!

    Sounds like someone keeps shaking the snow globe rather than letting it settle down.

    Jan surprised me today by suggesting we go out to the range and I let her shoo my gun - her first ever time for handling a fire arm! Been a long time for me as well. I have had a Ruger 22 since I was 18, but I've done little more than clean and oil it for the past 40 years. This should be interesting!
