    Working on a maple leaf retirement plaque. This makes 4 major retirement plaques since March this year.

    Also some yard work with a CAT, skidder and about 60 yards of fill and loam

    MAN - I DO need to get back to the shed and get that finished up.

    Started Friday by making a final decision on new sofa and loveseat for our family room.

    I'm also working on my first effort in cutting aluminum on my CNC. It's a small door bracket for one of our Edison Diamond Disc phonographs.

    Saturday will include some shop time on CNC projects - name plaques mainly. Then, settle in to watch the Daytona Coke 400 race.

    Sunday - lazy day!!!

    Happy to report that I am feeling much better and getting caught up on some projects. Call it remedial maintenance of a personal nature. It has been challenging to learn how to take better care of myself.

    Have to do some needed things around the ol' tin can. Have to show the park people proof of mobility. That means move the rig. Not a small or quick undertaking or without a physical exertion that has eluded me for a while.

    Hope to get some CNC cabinet time in this weekend. Working on the vacuum plumbing and the wiring.

    And starting the drawings to remodel the kitchen and dining area of the rig in anticipation of its sale later this year. Got news this last week that I might hear about the variance issue from the county soon. It its a 'yes', then off to the architect for the drawings and call in the tractor guys for foundation work. It not, I will be house shopping. It is time to move into a better living situation.

    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?

    now that the cnc has a permanent brain, picked up some cheap speakers (tunes ya know!), and hope to get my signs done today, and back to working on the furniture cuts.

    Still fighting the cold, but feeling a lot better. May go to some friends tonight to watch some fireworks. Tomorrow we pickup the Grandson and have him most of the weekend. It's supposed to rain A LOT so not sure what we'll be doing just yet. We also have a family reunion in town, but not sure how I'll be feeling so not decided if we'll go yet.

    Today was spent shopping and stuff like that. Finished getting the food for the 4th as I am having a cookout for some family and friends here. Nothing special. Just burgers slow smoked on pecan and mesquite for about an hour. Or more. And, of course gotta have some hot dogs. Homemade spud salad and beans. Dr. Pepper, Root Beer, Cream Soda. Simple, good, fun. Can't beat that. Over the weekend I'll be finishing up some pieces and doing some more cleanup.

    Well i used the holiday here to get some shop time. Boy did i enjoy myself.
    Its so good to have a place to play in again.

    Pulled a heck of a long 6/3 cable to shop. Then mounted my panel "arrangement" to get power out of the existing house panel.
    Started on the shop panel , its going to be a semi movable panel.
    So soon i will have power in the shop,

    Tomorrow i am going to Blue Jays baseball game downtown Toronto with a few friends, we were given 4 tickets supposed to be good seats.

    Sunday i hope to get more shop time.

    Started the long weekend playing a private party tonight. It was on the back patio at a nice hacienda on a few acres in the valley of Albuquerque, couple of good Frisbee throws from the Rio Grande. We got a bit of rain, but nothing we couldn't work around. I've attached a couple of pics below that LOML took before dark.

    Saturday is going to be more music time...working on new cover songs for a new project.

    Sunday and Monday are still up in the air, but I hope to make more progress on my garage/shop setup.
