Late shift reporting for duty.
Now that Ted has shown up, Bags have disappeared.
David is busy this weekend, Olga is visiting ans he’ll be busy doing inlay work.
William too has been pretty silent for a while (bliss), perhaps his wife has left the light on for him?
Sniper Dave has yet another haul of old stuff from Ebay, he must be a gold star customer there by now.
Ted, sorry to burst your bubble, but any Chinese made knife won’t cut anything, so they beat you to it.
Marty, glad to see you have recovered, and I can see too how you must feel looking at a bulldog’s ass all day.
Randy, you are just a complete mess and a meal scrounger, you belong here.
Stumpy, I feel your pain, when you main machine goes down it’s bad. I don’t get rid of older PCs, desktops or laptops, they all still work but are quite useless now. I have 7 laptops, 2 of which I use currently, and 6 desktops – one I use currently. I have some PCs with 486 processors a some with pentium processors from Win 98 to Win7-64bit. Laptops range from Windows 2000 to Win7-64bit. It’s the same thing with scanners and printers and external HDs, one old Pentium 2.8 has 5 external HDs on it. I never throw anything away, but have given systems to 2 of my kids a few times. Oh, forgot to mention, my last job was a senior systems analyst, hence all the equipment. I also have quite a few flash drives from 256k to 32Gig. Think of me like being another Dave.

I’ll be busy this weekend because next week is medical fun week with 7 appointments this time – Yikes, be warned, I will be back to this asylum before you can say fgaf;gegfgaVAYYEF

Good Morning Guys,

The stove is in its new place and one of the base cabinets is in place.

This is one of the before pictures, but after we moved the stove out. Hopefully this weekend that whole section will be gone.

Mornin’ all,
It seems that the coffee has started to circulate throughout and into my brain. Not that the caffiene has much to work with!!! These fall daze, with less daylight (cloudiness don’t help either) leave me tired, unmotivated and lethargic.

David,
Not getting terrestrial visitors isn’t that bad. Since you live in the desert, you may want to consider putting out a “Welcome Pad” to encourage extra-terrestrial visitors!!!

Gene,
I did a day trip to Sedona, several years ago, when I spent a week in Phoenix/Scottsdale. A beatiful and freaky kinda place. On another trip, I spent a week in Tuscon at the “Marlboro Ranch Party” and visited Tombstone. Philip Morris paid for everything, airfare, food & “adult” beverages, That was a very fun week. From what I can remember!!!

Me too, Rex.
Outside faucets and irrigation lines have already been emptied. Mowers and such have been winterized and stored. Farmer’s Almanac predicts heavier than normal snow fall for TX, NM and AZ. Not much that can be done here to prepare for that. Snow gets deep, we just stay home.
The wood storage needs some attention and the shop needs cleaned.
Guess I’d better get at it. See ya later.

I slept till 10:00 and I feel pretty good about it. Have to go put a 3rd coat on the traffic areas of the porches I painted, probably around 2 pm when it’s not so chilly, but that’s all I’m required to do today, or tomorrow, or next week, or… this ain’t good for the pocket book but may as well enjoy it.

Just for sake of keeping on topic, I’ll take a pic of the wooden hand rails I replaced.

Oh, and I replace the tires on my bicycle that’s been basementized for the past 3 years, and it’s supposed to be a beautiful 72 deg. tomorrow. I’ll probably go riding along the lakefront. I believe Chinook Salmon are running about now, but I don’t want to spend the $15 for a fishing permit so I guess I’ll leave the gear at home.

Okay, now I’m just typing for the sake of typing. Hmmm… 10:46 AM… shower time!

Stinky

Ted, I just wanted to say I admire you.
With your job situation, I respect the way you go about doing stuff to get you through this economy. You may not have all those “need to have tools”, but with an attitude like you have, you will eventually have them and work on things YOU want to do. Life can be tough, but the tough get going, and you are one of them.

Well, I have my thickness planer apart and the replacement cutterhead is in place. I must now reassemble the thing.

Have I mentioned that I HATE SNAP RINGS & SNAP RING PLIERS!!! I purchased a set of IRWIN VICE GRIP snap ring pliers and they SUCK. They work for tiny external rings, but are useless for larger internal ones. Go ahead now Jeff, you can laugh!

Everything about disassembly, except the large internal snap ring, was quite easy. BTW, thanks Jeff, for the Byrd Cutterhead Replacement PDF!!! I discovered that I’m missing one of the “tension springs”, so a trip to the hardware store is immenent. It is now time for a snack and then onto reassembly…...

I think I owned a snap ring pliers many years ago and never once used it, always managed with a needle nose and screwdriver. Then again, I never replaced the cutter head on a thickness planer.

I arrived at the porches to apply the final coat on the walk areas only to find tenants on the second floor stuck half way up the stairs with a giant sofa. Well, tomorrow is supposed see a high temp of 70 deg., so I’ll just do it in the morning. Ahhh… procrastination with a legitimate excuse… life is good.

Also been putting up things outside and prepping for the winter, and also bringing up firewood near to the house. I’ll do a lot of the same tomorrow as this next week I have 7 medical appointments, so the week will be taken.

Hey there Jeff.
Yes, there is lots to do, and more than I imagined, but at least I can make a huge dent in it. The good news is that I have also included the shop to get ready for winter too. About 3 years ago I got a wood stove in the shop, it’s only been lit twice, but I’m making it and the shop ready for winter because I intend being at the shop through the winter. The stove gives out loads of heat and will burn for over 8 hours on just one load. So if it gets really nasty here, I may get stranded in the shop for a few days and nights – YEAH.

Morning all.
Coffee is never gone.
I have an endless supply.
Don’t believe me?
Ask Dave or Lucas.
I’m usually making another pot as soon as one pot is emptied.

With what little shop time I’m getting at the moment, I’m working on what you and I discussed Jeff. I will post and be sending you a PM for approval and an address when done.

Also, I got the patterns in for something I’m going to make for Marty. So Marty, you can’t be disappearing anymore before I get that done. Keep your ass present.

I’m worried as hell about Eddie. I’ve sent him PMs and he usually answers. I wonder if we’d get him back if EVERYONE sent him PMs EVERYDAY.
Go ahead, click on that blue word, Eddie, and start pestering the crap out of him until he comes back.
We need him.

You guys take care.
