    It's Friday! - 1/10/2014 Edition

    Man, these full weeks back at work are just long.

    I'm hoping to get started on the basement this weekend, pulling up old carpet and painting. I bought Rocksmith this week to play around with the guitar on, so going to go through the setup on it. Supposed to be in the 50's on Sunday, so may try to get some shop time in, need to do a good cleaning and get things back in order.

    What's everyone else got going?

    After a "lost" day Thursday going to Tallahassee for a follow-up with the eye surgeon, I hope to get back on track in the shop today. I'll finish getting the big drawers installed under the queen-size platform bed I've been working on for what seems like forever! Getting sidetracked on other projects hasn't helped much! I also need to get the final fitting done for the rail of the bed so I can apply stain and finish to it. Hopefully, I can put this thing to bed (pun intended) by the end of the month.

    Then, I have the flag/display case in process for FIL, but I have until the end of March to finish that.

    Perhaps, in my spare time, I can finally play with the iBox I bought a few weeks ago!!!

    Supposed to be heading to KC area for a memorial for my great uncle who passed away last month. He had a good run making it to 95, although the last 4yrs where in a care facility as he had Alzheimer's. We'll remember the good times and toast his favorite beverage, a cold beer. (which he always offered to anyone he was with no matter what the age). He didn't have any kids of his own, but everyone of his 16 nephews and nieces along with lots of their families (like me)will be there to honor him at the memorial and after at a gathering place he frequented regularly until his later years. He was well like for sure. Did I mention he always offered you a beer?

    The travel conditions might not let that happen however. Ice/Rain/Snow predicted thru midnight. Might need to wait until morning, but would like to get there tonight as the daughter has her heart set on swimming at the hotel. Back from that on Sunday morning and then I hope to get in the shop in the afternoon. Temps are suppose to be in the high 30s!!

    Woke up this morning to a double-barrel bloody nose that took about 40 minutes to get stopped. I guess the weekend can only get better from here on out.

    Playing a gig tonight at a local tavern from 8:00 to 11:30, then I have nothing important scheduled for the rest of the weekend. Planning to do as little as possible and try to get rid of the cold I've been fighting for a week.

    Going back to Arizona this afternoon after another round the dirt issues. Tomorrow a funeral in Phoenix. Sunday the game and naps!

    Now that the cross is out of the shop I can get started on a bunch of pull toys that need to be done by mid February. Our woodworking club gives about 600 of these simple toys to the Shriners each year to be passed on to children in hospitals.
