Jeff, Dave, all.
I was doing some testing this morning on finishes for the lamp when my wife walked in.
I showed her what I was doing and she disapproved.
She mentioned a finish I done on a chest about three years ago.
I’ve only done this finish once because I didn’t like it.
It’s what she says she wants though.

The finish I’m talking about was two coats of Watco Danish oil, with a topcoat of wipe on poly, polished with coffee filters in between.
The reason I didn’t like the finish is that you have to wait so long after the oil before you can do the topcoat. The can says 72 hours. On the chest I done though, it was more like a week.
With the polishing though, it creates a nice finish.
So that means it will be at least another week before ya’ll see the finished lamp.
What mama wants, mama gets.

William – I’m with you on the slow finishes…..I just don’t have the patience, plus I don’t have a space that isn’t dusty all the time….....although the kids aren’t here much like the old days, so I do some finishing in their bedrooms some times…..just don’t tell them that…...

Evening fellow Stumpy Axeholes. I started my new job today, I spent it filling out paperwork and waiting. I got a hard hat with the company logo, and I went and bought a pair of steel toe boots. I swore I wouldn’t do any IT work, but I got called over by a manager who wanted to know where his Word icon went. SO much for splitting away from the computer work. At least I got to enjoy the nice weather today.

Randy, I didn’t find the icon, I walked the user through re-installing the icon himself. My supervisor was getting haggled by the other two supervisors today about, “his new guy that won’t be in maintenance long”......

I was also informed that out of all the applicants from outside the company, I was the only one that passed all the tests, background checks and drug test…...

I have often wondered why Oscar Mayer Weiners are not kosher?, you can’t obviously schlepp some onions and mustard on them at a Bar Mitzvah, could you.

Well another day down the pan. Had to change my shot appointment time so that I could take Sandra in to see the doc, as she was still running a temperature and came over all blotchy and the moaning kept the dogs awake last night. So off we both went to the doc’s, I came out after my shot and accompanied her to her appointment. Her temperature had come down some and the doc said she definitely had something but hadn’t a clue what it was. So now she’s got a barrage of “try this” drugs and treatments to see which one works. We got home about 5pm and I think she is getting to be more like her old self …...... she bitched at me all the way home.
