    Let's Have a work Day!!!!!!!!!!!

    Okay Folks, What do you think of this GREAT idea?? In the thread "How long can we put it off?" we are discussing stuff/ mostly around the house that we just flat out don't do/ let go/ pass on/ .
    What say we have a work day , sometime when we each pick a certain top of the list pain in the butt task we don't wanna do and plan on posting that job ahead of time in the same thread and then go about doing it at the same time, same day, same time frame, as the other " FWW WORK DAY PARTICIPANTS" with updates and family participation as occurs and almost cuss words of progress as the day goes on? It may get me off my duff and be a creative incentive...It could be "THE FIRST ANNUAL 'FAMILY WOODWORKING' WORK DAY!"
    Can you DIG THAT!!!!!!!!

    As for working at Ken's place, I am sure it would be more fun working on someone elses place, but i gotta stay here for a while..

    Ha...try to bait the workers away from MY PLACE with beer and pizza eh? No way pal, if there is a work bee its going to be at my house and I will provide the beer and LOBSTER!!

    In all seriousness Shaz, that is a great idea but I think the timing is a little off. That would be a great Spring thing to do. As I type this I have frost on the ground and in another month or so that ground outside is going to be very hard (frozen). The things I need to do right now, are outside things, things that need to be done before the ground freezes. Its not something I have been putting off, its just things I have been doing all along to get done before the ground freezes. Like putting in a gas line under ground, shingling the rest of my house, moving a flowerbed, and re-landscaping the yard around the new addition....

    About the only thing I have been putting off is getting my snowmobile ready for winter. Spending time with Mommy and the baby. Spending time in my shop....

    Oh by the way, for anyone that doesn't like lobster, please don't be diswayed...I have plenty of bait on hand you can eat. (If you eat McDonald's fishburgers, you are eating it anyway. We use Redfish for bait, they use it for Filletfish) True story!!

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
