    It's Friday - 4/15/2016 Edition

    It's a beautiful Friday here and supposed to be just as nice all weekend, rain has moved mostly out of the forecast for us. Probably working on the bathroom project tonight. I'm hoping to get some old building materials hauled to the restore for donation tomorrow, maybe go get some gravel for the driveway. Might try to get some time in at the range too.

    So what's on everyone else's plate?

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    i GOT 6 BIG TREES REMOVED FROM THE YARD LAST WEEK.
    I have a LOT is wood to pick up and stack.

    This weekend I will work a little on the bay window install prep work.
    I need to get it ordered - as well as two simple double hung windows.

    I am also building a 10x12 shed, so that will be in the works.

    I am trying to get some info on Central air install.

    I will be having the new John Deere delivered on Sunday.

    Yea! I'll be working on the old John Deere sometime this weekend. Mostly its time for domestic chores. And the day job on Sunday, of course.

    I suppose I'd better get the lawn mowed sometime today, since it's supposed to rain here this weekend.

    I also need to do more shuffling and purging of stuff in my garage to make room for some shelving units I recently acquired. Slowly working my way toward getting a shop set back up.

    And I expect to spend some time putting this new (to me) guy through its paces:

    I found it last week at the local used guitar shop, so I did a bit of horsetrading and brought it home. This is Stratocaster #4 for me. I just replaced the pickups last night, so I'm curious how they sound with my rig. With this configuration, I expect to get a bit wider variety of tones than I get with my other Strats.

    First beautiful day of the season, girls and their families are coming tomorrow for dinner and get all of the ponies out for the kids to ride. 4 new ponies and Ricky so everyone will have their own but for tomorrow Fancy won't be out as she has a surprise inside and don't need her banged up at this late date. Going to look at an old JD corn planter tonight. Don't need it, but it is a good enough buy if it is as described, be worth bringing home and putting in the shed as it will be all I will ever need here behind the team. Sunday, recuperate from Saturday! Moving, stacking, splitting and hauling firewood. Trying to clean up the big piles of wood so can fence that area for the kids to have an arena for riding their ponies on their own.

    Purple!

    Going to drain the old pool and get things prepped for the new one. We used the old little 20' round one quite a bit, but would like to have one a little deeper with a nice deck around it. So going to pack this one away and see if I can find someone interested in taking it and will prep the ground for the new one.

    I have managed to beat the shop into submissin to where it's actually usable so will try and knock out a couple of quick organizational projects as well.

    I assume something along this line...when is the next gathering? It should almost be big enough.
