    It's Friday! - 4/18/2014 Edition

    Getting off work early today, parents are back in town and will be spending the night. Have a little gun smith work I'm doing and hope to finish it up tonight. This weekend I'll be working on the yard and getting the guest bedroom ready for one of my favorite folks here. Might throw something on the smoker for Sunday and need to do some serious shop cleaning.

    What's everyone else got going?

    Now that I think (or hope) Old Man Winter has had his last hurrah here, I'm hoping to get new pads in the swamp cooler this weekend and get it up and running for the season. I have several other maintenance/cleaning chores to do around the apartment this weekend, too.

    If the time and motivation are there, I've got a guitar re-wiring job to do this weekend. It hasn't been a priority, but the end result should be worth the work involved. I also have a new pedal board (guitar effects and amp models) that I've had for a couple of months, yet still have not got it programmed and ready to use in public.

    Playing a gig at a friend's private party tomorrow evening. It has the potential of becoming a fun jam session with a number of notable local musicians.

    Just finished the latest projects (posted) & am now awaiting the arrival tonight of our daughter from Manhattan for an Easter weekend at home. The girls enjoy shopping at a local seacoast town (Portsmouth) so we'll be doing that tomorrow & have dinner there as well. Sunday is Easter dinner at my BI's home. Looking forward to an enjoyable family weekend!

    Taking it easy at home tonight, probably some shop time if I feel like it. Tomorrow the plan is to clean out the entire garage and throw away or donate 60% of the junk in there. It's needed to happen for a few years, but this brutal winter and my messy shop moved the LOML to "suggest" that next winter she will be parking in there. There will be room if we get rid of all the boxes we haven't opened or looked at in the 10yrs we've lived here. She even agreed to help me...after I told her I wasn't even going ot look in the boxes, just start tossing them.

    Sunday will be family time after church...oh and lots of good food too!

    I need to do that as well, 50% of the stuff in the back of the shop is my kids or stuff that is still there from moving that my wife didn't want down at the house.

    Friday: We've been watching it rain all day! Looks like this weather will move on out tonight. So far, we've had 2.4" of rain since it started at 2:30 this morning!

    Saturday: I'll spend a little time in the shop on some organizing and cleaning. Yeah, that's it. Part of the day will be spent finishing packing for our getaway.

    Sunday: Getaway day! We'll head down to the port of Tampa first thing to board the ship for a 7-day western Carribean cruise! The return home will be the following Sunday. Fun time!

    It will be a year on the 22nd that my grandson passed away. My daughter as been asking for a box to hold some of the memorabilia that she has. I just couldn't bring myself to make her one until today. I started this morning milling up some cherry boards and digging out the beautiful piece of walnut burl that Larry gave me some time ago. I will inlay it into the top. So most of today and Saturday will be speng in the shop.

    Sunday a bunch of the kids and grand kids will be here for Easter dinner. After Church we'll have an Easter egg hunt at the house for them and if they haven't filled up on candy they can stuff themselves with Ham and turkey

    Next week the wife is on vacation from school so that means she'll be standing over me with a frying pan until I strip the bathroom wallpaper, fix a small leak, and do the painting that she told me to do months ago
    I'd rather chew glass than paint.
