    Looking like another nice day so off to shop 4 I will go ! :)
    I need to do a service call on the way but then it's grass cutting time ...... pay the cement guy ....... move treasures around & maybe order some rock to help clean up the mess . May go crazy & open up a bundle of lumber & put a few sticks up . :rolleyes:
    I bet there is some real crap boards hidden in those bundles . :eek:
    Could be a productive day as long as my back holds out ! :p Cutting the grass will be tough on my back with all the ruts the trucks made this summer . All in all it hasn't been a bad year for the shop project . I am happy with what has been done so far . Loads of small things need doing too all over the place . No idea when a done stamp will get put on the place . :rolleyes:

    To tell you the truth Ron, I don’t have a “done stamp” I have a “till we meet again” sign for all my projects. There’s always something that comes up after a project is supposedly “done.” LOL

    The best done stamp is when you have cash in hand & the project goes down the road . :)
    Maintenance projects are the never ending story . Just when you get really good at fixing the toilet ....... they change the parts from brass to plastic & they don't fit . :eek:
    The fun starts when the wife decides after you spend a day fixing the toilet that it would be a good time to update the bathroom ! :rolleyes:
    The white toilet you just fixed no longer looks good in a pink bathroom !
    Then out your work goes & then the counter top & sink & floor . I have saved a lot not having one of those critters ! :p
    I keep things long enough to see them go in & out of style & then become retro .:)

    Looks like a good day in the 70s here . :)
    Yesterday was interesting .
    The quick service call early ....... 4 hours & still not done !
    Cut a lot of grass ...... back hurts to prove it .
    Paid the cement guy ..... really poor now .
    Got 8 more truck loads of rock ...... love rock dust .
    Drug my buns home late & brother called & said sounds like you didn't get much done ! :rolleyes: ...... I want his DNA checked ! :p
    Today will be another mixed bag of things to do .
    Top of the list is to fix that machine .
    Then do what ever my back will let me do .:)
    Putting around the shop waiting for the sun to come up is a pain . The days are getting short & the list seems to be getting bigger for outside things .
    At shop 4 the lights will be on & me nailing & sawing away will be common soon . :eek:
    At least out there there are no close neighbors to gripe about the noise ! :)
    One guy doing the work of 4 guys is always fun ! :confused:
    Lumber situation is getting worse around here so building may not last long ...... not all bad news because then I can get back to treasure projects ! :) By then there will be more room to work in shop 1 . I should get another hobby for all my spare time . o_O
