    It's Friday! - 4/25/2014 Edition

    Looks like a great weekend coming up weather wise, well pretty good anyway. Have quite a bit of yard work on my list to do. Hopefully I'll be getting a little shop time in and able to work on my gun vise. Have little welding project to work on making a step hitch for my garden trailer.

    What's everyone else got going?

    Doing some guitar-slingin' tonight with my band buddies at the local sports bar & grill, then tomorrow I'm doing some gun-slingin' with my shooting club at our monthly Range Day. Also plan to finish the work I've been doing on the swamp cooler to get it ready for the summer. It's clean now...just need to install new pads and check out the pump. Saturday night will be out on the town listening to a couple of bands that friends play in. Sunday will be for extra sleep, as well as catching up on various odds and ends, including the ongoing saga of the rewiring job on one of my guitars.

    Day off.

    I had a tree cut down last year - ended up with trunk 14' long and about 14-18 diameter.

    Went to saw mill this morning got it cut up

    Much is 1/4 sawn

    Red Oak


    It's all stickered and stacked

    NOW - working in finish painting interior doors for the remodel project.

    I gotta get the doors out of the shop - I am getting crowded out.

    Tonight we are hosting my parents, sister and BIL and their kids for brats and beers (root beer for the little ones). Tomorrow the girl and I will be going to look at tools and dream. She wants a JD rider, I want a new bandsaw. Then it's out with some friend to a new patio bar/grill. Sunday looks like rain so probably some shop time for me.

    Picking up a couple redwood 4x4's for my canoe build...finally. Pouring some new steampunk pen blanks. Tomorrow at the range so Stacey and I can get our CCW's and atomize some more paper with my new S&W M&P 40. Sunday is sleep, church, cook and catch up on the DVR library.

    Busy days today & tomorrow:
    • De-thatch & then mow lawn.
    • Change the oil & filter in the lawn tractor.
    • Then tune it up.
    • Remove the mower deck, lube it & sharpen the blades.
    • Open up the irrigation system & resolve any sprinkler head or zone valve problems.
    • Get a hair cut... might as well get them all cut while I'm at it.
    • Run errands.
    • Take a nap....................... maybe two! On second thought I might forget about the work.
    • Grill some rib-eyes tonight!

    Cleaning up the shop in anticipation of my next project......I just don't exactly know what that will be.

    Chasing an old Tom Tomorrow morning. Maybe work a bit in the afternoon or paint some on the loon Saturday afternoon or Sunday. Or maybe get some riding in, it's been a long winter.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
