I don’t have any pigs.
And I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t stick them with a chisel, or anything else for that matter, if I did have any.

Good Morning guys,

It is a chore to say something interesting this morning so I will just say good morning. Last night I had just got home from earning my daily bread and a little left over for the tax man, and I was sitting eating supper and trying to figure out what was next, move the stove or move another cabinet and the phone range. It was the guy in the band that does all the bookings. He asked me if I was free to play last night so I went and played a gig instead of working. I usually like to have a bit more warning for a gig, but with the show, it has been a long time since I played in front of anyone and it was refreshing. Isn’t it interesting how many good excuses I can find to avoid finishing the drywall.

Grab today squeeze it and make it hollar.

Good morning one and all.

Nothing much to report here except Sandra is on the mend and it’s the dreaded trash day.
It has turned chilly here, very early. The avatar pic was taken exactly 2 years ago and it was as hot as hell then, so amongst anything else, I am working on “winterizing” around here and preparing for what people say is a nasty winter. Later this afternoon I am going to one of my grandson’s football game and hopefully Sandra will be up to it.
Sorry I have not been online much this week, seems like I have been busy all the time, including all the crap involved with some credit card fraud where someone made 2 charges to my credit card, which has been a real pain to get resolved. Anyway, I hope y’a;; have a great day and I hope things will return to normal around here real soon.

This month is Moving Month! moving about 40 miles to the east of here. Going to be just downhill of the Highest Point in Ohio. campbell hill is maybe two miles up ( and I do mean up) the street from the new place. Place does have a SMALL basement/cellar. Still have to wire in a range. We have an electric range, but this place is set up for gas ranges. Not a big deal, just add a breaker, run the cable 25’, and add an outlet for the 220v range. Tried to replace a thermocoupler on the gas water heater, WOW, not with my big hands. Grandson got the old one out, except for that #$### clip.

Found an Antique store a few blocks away. Did you know that this..

MIGHT be made of Gold? The store wanted $40.00+ Tax for it! I could go to Menards, or Lowes, and buy a brand NEW Stanley/Bailey block plane, and have $10 left over for the gas tank. Don’t even ask about the handsaws sitting there….

Glad to hear everyone is doing a little better it seems. I myself get to work my first overtime shift within the first week of this new job tomorrow. I can’t complain, like most people, I could really use the money and the experience. I think it will be a while before I’m used to leaning on a rail on top of a boiler several hundred feet in the air though. The more I think about it, I guess I’ll have to go to the shop and cut some pocket sized basswood blanks for some small whittlings on my breaks if I plan to get some shop type work in.

Good morning all.
Bags, simple answer is nowhere this week. Sandra has been sick, took her to the doc and she is recovering and hopefully will be more of herself at the weekend. I have been tending to her and doing whatever chores I can around the house as she had been in bed for most of the week, or wrapped up on the couch.

I am really, really hoping I can get to the shop at the weekend and get something done, I’ll just have to play it “by ear”.

Hope all you guys have a great Friday, I’ll try to get back later.

Morning Nubbers!
Home with youngest, she had ear surgery on Wednesday. The first day of the pool being open this past summer she busted her eardrum diving to the bottom of the deep end (she has done this many times in the past, so I don’t know what made it different this time). She spent the WHOLE summer not allowed to swim in hopes it would heal. It didn’t so, she had surgery. She’s not allowed to be active (no running, jumping, playing, etc) for a month. Not even allowed to blow her nose. This is all very hard for my active 10 year old. Oh and she can’t join me in the shop either.
