Happy Friday all! We're supposed to get some warm weather here this weekend. I may try to do some leaf clean-up if it's not too windy. I'm also hoping to finish gluing up the rest of the barn door to assemble, then router out for the panels. Other than that, probably just playing with the mini lathe a bit and getting it setup.

Rained all day yesterday and I could see the gutters overflowing, so I need to drag out the ladder and try not to fall off o_O Normal shop clean up and maybe some turning. Sawdust and shavings are calling.

Nothing too exciting going on here this weekend. Tomorrow is Range Day for our shooting club, and it looks like the weather should be nice for that. If it's warm enough Sunday I'll get out to the shop and do some more cleaning and organizing.

Be careful on that ladder. I sprung for some leaf guards this fall and they worked great for keeping the leaves out. The downside is that there is a mesh behind the holes on these to keep smaller objects out too. The issue comes when you have a few inches of snow and it starts melting and re-freezing, those little holes clog up and the ice just drips on the front steps causing a 2" thick ice rink. ;)

It's February so that means is RPM Challenge. It's where you're challenged to put together an albums worth of music in one month. A couple of old college buddies and I have been doing it for a dozen years or so.

Also have to keep helping my guitar player build his steel shop building.

So, will be pretty busy I reckon.

I have the same problem with the 'GutterLoov" I had installed about ten years ago. Does a great job of keeping debris out of the gutters, though.

Bobbie and I started our day putting on our uptown clothes to drive to Valdosta to have lunch at Outback as part of our anniversary celebration. Took the opportunity to drop by Stan's Meats Market to pick up some beef plate ribs; also got some pork spares and a pork loin while there.

Saturday will be continued shop organization and some work on two cremation urns for SIL. I'll also work in a little time watching Daytona 500 practice.

Sunday will start with me preparing brunch. This week will be pancakes, bacon and eggs. The remainder of the day will be watching some NASCAR racing!

Did I mention it's finally NASCAR season again???

Well, We got 6 more arches up today, and are 2 short of getting that part done. The wind came up and it's blowing a heck of a dust storm out there. The wind was flexing the things and making it hard to get some of the bolts in, as well as making it dangerous to live any more arches.

I did have my drummer come over last night and we experimented with having him record some drums. My drum set didn't work very well for him, so we'll wait a couple weeks and then try again with his drum kit.

well It looks like I'll be shopping for a new water softener this weekend. our old one (13 years old) seems to have finished up it service life and it's time to replace it...:(:confused:. I was hoping to get started on the base for the CNC but we will see.
Well I got he water softener on order and it won't be in till this week and I picked up 800 pounds of ceramic floor tile and unloaded it in the garage (that's a whole nother story) and maybe, just maybe tomorrow, after church, I can start on the cabinet for the CNC..(fingers crossed).
