    Friday has struck again!

    So, what's up, folks?

    Gonna spend some time this morning with mortising timbers. I have to finish a PowerPoint for Sunday, and in between there will be lots of writing. No special meals planned. That doesn't happen when you live alone and cook for one.

    Some say the land of milk and honey; others say the land of fruits and nuts. All together my sort of heaven.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?

    I have plans to pick up a used wood lathe tonight, probably will be living in the dog house the rest of the weekend after that, unless I can get it home without my wife's knowledge (also known as the Roger Tulk technique). I think Dad wants to try out a new shooting range, they built a new one with a 200 yard section this past fall across the state line. Also need to do some yard work.

    Cleaning and restarting our hot tub this morning. Keeping an eye on my first attempt at some worthless wood casting for pen blanks.

    Practice some turning techniques on Saturday.

    Sunday should be a full day of rest!!!

    Tonight staying in and resting up...Tomorrow celebrating my dad's 70th birthday!! It was acutally the 27th, but the party is tomorrow. I'll be the grill master while everyone eats and drinks a few cold ones. My wife and sister planned it all so I just need to show up and get told what to do. Sunday resting up after the party and maybe get started on the girl's bunk bed.

    RETIRED(!) in Austintown, Ohio

    Ten yards of mulch to spread, 1˝ acres to mow, garden area to rototill, house siding to pressure wash, flower beds to weed out.

    Yeah, it's a busy weekend. About the only shop time I'll get is sharpening the mower blades.

    Saturday I'm participating in an Ironman triathalon for charity (Orphaned and Homeless Puppies Fund) in the morning, then later in the day I'm going to single-handedly put out several blazing buildings while rescuing small children and their mothers. Sunday will mostly be spent achieving world peace and bringing about universal brotherhood. Might also watch some NASCAR.

    Actually, I got nothin'. Probably practice some guitar stuff and do a bit of tweaking on some of my guitar gear, might do a bit of hiking, and will for sure be getting caught up on some sleep. Tonight and Saturday I have my choice of several friends' bands to go see around town. In other words, nothing significant on the calendar.
