    It's Friday! 9/26/2014 Edition

    Well, It's not yet here anyway, but it is my Friday! I took off Tomorrow and Monday to spend a little extra time with my wife and doing things she wants to do. We're celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary this year. We had planned to go out of town, but both my grandson and I have been under the weather this week, so decided to stay home. Will probably do some shop cleanup and may try to start cutting out pieces for the high chairs I need to get started on.

    What's everyone else got going?

    Hope you and your grandson feel better. Congratulations on the 17th. We started the weekend a little early with at least five bucks in the juke box.

    I keep waiting for Brent to get that sucker hooked up to Mixlr so we can all listen.

    Back to working weekends regularly. Today should have been my 'day off' but yesterday will have to do for that purpose. Named the new car Socks. May as well. Price knocked mine off! My first house cost less.

    Though the arbor for the Timberline saw came back. Maybe I can sneak some time in to start putting that saw back together.

    Congrats Darren, my wife and I celebrated 15yrs yesterday. Tonight my parents are taking us out ot eat...tomorrow I'll spend most of the day in the shop making a couple commissioned cutting boards while listening to some college football. Sunday will probably be some scraping and priming on the house if I get the cutting boards done tomorrow.

    This is a market weekend for us... Load the truck today (after I make a garbage run - one of the perks?? of living in the country, we haul our own garbage), then up early tomorrow (Saturday) and drive to Knoxville for the market. Sunday we'll probably kick back and watch a couple of football games and recover from Saturday.

    I have heard that there are places where people come to your home and actually pick up your trash on a regular basis Probably one on those urban legends I've heard about

    Going to the big box store (bj's) Saturday to stock up on household stuff then to my grand daughters soccer game. Have to reinforce the railing to the entrance of the church with another trustee in the afternoon. After 260 years it came loose. Guess they don't make them like they used to Probably go out for a pizza sat night.

    Sunday church, then off to the coast of Maine to our favorite clam shack for some fried scallops and clams

    Congrats to Mr & Mrs Wright and, to Mr & Mrs Bower

    Same as usual around here...not much Final clean-up of the garden, & a little more work on the guitar top, just ordered the truss rod and tuning machines last night so the neck is on the back burner until they show up. Got a couple more spots that need winterizing around the house. Tuned up the {forgive me for saying this so early lol} snowblower and going to give the old furnace a once over hopefully this weekend as well.

    Started today (Friday) sanding the top of the sewing cabinet LOML has been stripping; most of the yellow paint is gone, but we still need to dig it out of the grain. Also sprayed some rattle can lacquer on a frame I built to hold some hand painted tiles. Now, I'm turning a piece of patriotic camouflage acrylic for a bolt-action pen.

    Saturday will be a lot of the same stuff.

    Sunday should be a day of rest. After brunch, I'll settle in for the Dover race.
