Well, I got the Caddy cleaned and ceramic coating applied to all the horizontal surfaces (before I ran out, as it was what was left over from doing 007 last year.

I didn't get the pickup even started, ended up going over to the 'city' for groceries...and I picked up some 1" square aluminum tubing for a second set of "corn hole" game that #2 wants. I don't remember if I told you guys I built a det for #3 a couple weeks ago. I used 1/4" HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) for the top and the aluminum tubing as the frame and stainless screws to put it together. #3s' hubby 'likes' Jack Daniels, and wanted me to carve in the label in the surface.

This second set is going to be a Dallas Cowboy theme.

Morning guys.... We sure could use some of that rain you guys are getting. Today is our best chance for the week. It is warm and pretty humid (for us).

BD party went well, there were no ribs left over. We didn't make it to any of the graduation parties, but did make it out to the wedding dance. Father of the bride (long time friend) was glad to see us. Mother wasn't there, she has had some severe medical issues...well, really all her life (she was in the hospital several times in the last month..near death), and she was already home. Father confided in us, the fact he was really worried about her, said she was just living for this wedding, and is afraid she will just give up now that it is over. He says he has to keep smiling and laughing as it keeps him from crying.... I pray for them.

Nothing really on the agenda today...I might go out and clean up the Caddy and the pickup.

Next weekend, we are headed to KC, then on Monday, we will head south down to Branson to meet up with a Corvette friend (from another forum) and spend a few days there with them.

Hey guys.....Well, the new compressor is working out ok. It doesn't recover quite as fast as the old one, but it is quiet and it does produce air.

Finished spraying some finish this morning. Then hung a shelf.

We are hosting #2 GSs 19th birthday party this afternoon. He requested smoked ribs, so I threw those on the pellet grill and am getting some other things done.

Besides the BD party, HS graduation is this afternoon, there is a wedding of a daughter of a friend and Prom (#3 GS is going to that after the BD party. And I'm down to read at church, which by the way, I need to go shower ....

I hope all of you are having/had a great day.

Hey folks...Been a busy week for me. I finished up, everythung I could at the house, until other subs get stuff done.

It has been hotter than H3LL here. It didn't make it too 100 today...by the thermometer.....but pretty darn close by adding the humids.... we aren't used to those kind of humidity numbers. Been a good thing that most of our work has been inside, in a basement, in house where the AC is strong.

Oh, last week I walked into the shop first thing in the morning, and was met with a blast of hot air(hotter than it should have been, and the compressor running full tilt, and an air leak spewing like crazy. I thought, crap, it blew a hose again (not the first time). But no leak in the hose...so I reach down under the tank to where the spewing was coming from (after I got close enough to figure it out) and find a hole in the tank.

I grab a stainless steel screw and stick it in, then JB Weld over the screw. Allow the JB to set over the weekend and Tuesday crank up the compressor...just about the time it reaches the kick off pressure, it starts spewing again. So yesterday, I went over and purchased another one, with very similar specs and size... 20 gallon tank 2hp motor, twin cylinder. I also took the old one out to a former student who is a certified pipeline welder, and asked him if he could patch up the tank....he told me "No problem...as long as the rest of the tank is OK." I told him to do what needed to be done. He actually said, if need be, he had some 12" pipe he could make up another tank completely, and I would never have to worry about it rusting out.

This morning, I went up to the parts store and got a shut-off valve and two quick couplers and the hardware store for the brass fittings to make the manifold and then chabged the motor over to run on 240 volts as that is what I have for power where it sits. I'll have a reserve compressor once I get the other one back.

Have a great evening and weekend folks.

Morning guys...Been really busy the last couple of days. Lots of things to do at the lady's house as she wants to move in. Not complaining as it is all inside work, in the basement, and the AC is working good, and I don't have to work outside in the heat.

Speaking of heat, it has been HOT here. 100+ the last two days and the prediction is for more of the same in the foreseeable future.

I hope all of you are able to stay cool.

Hey guys, busy day today. Early start on the finishing out of the basement. Made pretty good progress.

It was warm today, 97, tomorrow about the same, then we have 8 days in a row where they are predicting 100+ days. Not looking forward to that.

Life is tough all over Tommy! Matt, any restrictions up there, in the Dells, at all? John, the good thing when people take an extra day is, you don't have to deal with them!

Morning guys...temps are nice, but humids are too high, so a bit uncomfortable, and once the temps start to rise, it’s going to be very uncomfortable. Ready to head west where humids are more reasonable.

Not much on the agenda for me today, either. Just a 2 1/2 hour drive home. I hope, all of you, have a great day.

Hey guys , back home from the wedding. Very nice It was warm (muggy) in Wichita. Had to wear masks,as Wichita city council voted to follow the governor’s order. I resisted while in the church and at the reception.

Rosie and I led the “grand march”.....for those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s an old bohemian custom to start the party. We had to do a really ‘modified’ version, to keep the social distancing thing in order, but it was fun and successful anyway.

Came home and sat outside and watched fireworks. Time for bed..... night guys.

Morning guys... Slept pretty good, didn’t wake until 8. Low to mid 70s now and only headed to the upper 80s today. But we will be nearer to Gris, so we will be sharing that nice “low” humidity that he is experiencing.

We will be headed off to Wichita pretty soon.

Have a great 4th folks!

Well, we made it to Rosie’s dads place. Didn’t get away as early as we had thought.

While working in the shop the lady, with the new house, stopped by to tell me the carpet layers would be there late in the week, and did I want to hang the doors and trim before that? Well, ah, YES! So I told I’d start on Monday morning, but Tuesday, I was helping my neighbor run some concrete, so I’d come over Tuesday after I finished with that.... Looks to be a busy week.

We didn’t quite make it to the century mark today, only 98, darn! NOT!! It is a very comfortable 82 right now at FILs house.

Cool this morning, but a bit humid. Looking at highs near 100 today.

A little work in the shop is on tap. And an early stop so we can go to Rosie's dads' place. And the wedding tomorrow.

Stay cool, my friends!

Got a call from Rosie's dad a little bit ago, he says he thinks he had better not go to the wedding. We will still go there tomorrow night and leave from there to go to Wichita for the wedding. Not sure if we will go back to dads house Saturday night or just come on home.......1 1/2 hours to dads' or almost 4 home...

Got up to 97 today, and this afternoon, the air got real juicy....feels like a storm is in the making.

Morning guys.... awaiting my turn to see the Dentist. Rosie is in now. It is a sticky morning. Heavy clouds and mid 70s . Hoping that the sun will burn off the humidity...pretty sure “burning” Is going to happen, predicting almost 100 today.

I’ve got some things to do in the shop once we get home. Tomorrow we will head to hometown to spend the night with Rosie’s dad, then on Saturday we will take him to Rosie’s nieces’ wedding. Not staying very long as it is a two hour drive from his home and he doesn’t feel comfortable staying in a motel.

Have a great day folks.

We mixed about a yard of concrete today. I was the guy on the mixer, the guy I helped with the siding was the wheelbarrow guy and the owner was down in the hole filling the forms. That took me up to lunch time.

This afternoon GS #3 and I worked on facing some drawers for another client. And this evening I went out golfing, subbing for the same guy I subbed for last week, as he isn't done harvesting yet.

I'm thankful it wasn't any warmer than it was was. Tonight while golfing, we had a little shower roll through...not enough to measure, but we'll take whatever comes our way.

Morning guys... nice start, mid 60s early, upper 60s now. Headed to the low 90s, so we get a little break from the heat for a couple days.

Helping my 83 year old neighbor run some concrete today. He's putting in an escape window. HE, by himself, hand dug the 6' x 10' x 6' hole for the well. He's NOT your 'normal' 83 year old.

Got to go, have a great day.

Hey guys....After a week of getting up early to work , I awoke early again...I haven't gotten motivated to do anything though.

Our Governor, announced yesterday, she is mandating everyone must wear a mask when out in public. Each county can override that decision, and we've heard from one of our commissioners, the county att. and the sheriff, in response. The commissioner said he hopes that they will vote to Not follow the order....The county attorney says he won't prosecute and the sheriff says they won't enforce the order. Finally, standing up to the stupidity.

Have a great day.

She has wanted an early Mustang since she started driving....not sure where that came from, as I've never been a Mustang guy.

Hey guys, up early to beat the heat. We finished up installing the siding before noon and loaded most of the tools in the truck. Came back after lunch and broke down the scaffolding and took it back. Brought GS (who helped every day.. his forehead is healing right up) home with me to help unload and put tools away.

It only got up to 104 this afternoon. Headed out to the golf course for Mens' night. I trust you all had a great day.

Hey guys... Going to be hot again today...and the next three days. Over 100 predicted for the next 3 days and then cool off to 97-99 for two days then back into the 100s for a couple.

Not much on the agenda for today....I hope you have a great one!

Oh, when I got back from leaving him off at the docs office, the owner (a retired gas company guy), jokingly said, "You know Tom, you didn't follow the blood=borne pathogen protocol." I said, "Yea, I know, every time I watched those, it just reaffirmed my believe that those people have never been in a 'real' emergency situation. I just reacted and put my first aid training into effect."

Well, we got the siding torn off in an hour, then moved the scaffolging so we could begin reapplying. We were getting ready to put the housewrap on when our other young helper (freshman in high school and neighbor of the owner) was kind of screwing around and knocked a trim board over. I had my head down prepping for the wrap, and I heard the owner ask my grandson "...are you alright?" And saw the trim board hit the ground, I looked up and blood is gushing from my GSs' head. I jumped up to look at his head and see a BIG gash in his forehead. I grab his head and start squeezing and applying pressure. Talking to him, asking if his head hurt....telling him it was OK but it was going to require a stitch or two. About that time his face turned white as a sheet and I knew he was going down. With my other hand, and the help of the owner, we eased him to the ground. Within a few seconds, he was back with us and the owner had run to the house and grabbed some paper towels. We got him set up and hewas pretty good so I helped him to the pickup and we got him up to the Dr. office. Rosie and daighter were there about the same time we got there and they took him in to get his head stitched up. 3 stitches and doc said it was pretty deep as he could see the skull.

The funny part is 58 minutes later, daughter dropped him back off at the jobsite and he worked with us until noon, then came back in the afternoon with me and finished up the day. I believe most kids...and many young adults would have taken advantage of the situation and gone home calling it a day. He is a trooper.

BTW, we'll finish up the siding job on Monday

Up and around. It's reasonably cool, 70 now, but headed toward the century mark. The wind isn't supposed to blow quite as hard today. The last three nights we have been getting a little rain. About 1 1/2" to 2" total, but a little hail came along with the rain. Another round possible tonight. We like it, but I'm sure the farmers aren't thrilled, as it puts a damper on harvest.

Tearing off the south side this morning, then start applying the new siding. I doubt we will finish today, but we'll see how it goes.

I hope all of you folks can stay cool and dry today.

Well, we didn't get as far as I had hoped. The owner (70 year old, but a very young 70) decided he had enough for the day, after we got the scaffolding moved. Freaking hot and the wind made a big return, We had also run short on the stainless screws we are using to put the siding on, so he was headed to the 'city' to pick more up. And he has a class ( teaches martial arts of some sort), he thought taking the rest of the afternoon off would allow him to recoup before his students arrive.

I took advantage and went out to the shop to work on an antique piece a lady brought in for me to repair.

Hey guys... home for lunch. Started out pretty nice but has warmed up, and our 'friend', the wind, has made a reappearance. Makes it a bit tough to work with the larger pieces of siding we had to use this morning. We did finish up the west side this morning. This afternoon, we will break the scaffolding down and move it to the south side.

Owner is thinking that is where we will stop for the day...me, I would like to get the first row put on, but I'm not the boss.... we'll see how it goes.

Hey folks, up and out early again. Tore off siding on the west side and got almost half put back on today.

Got a call to sub on a golf league tonight as the guys' partner started harvesting. Played really well, but lost the match on the 2nd extra hole...we weren't even expected to be in the match, so staying with this team was a victory.

Got to head to bed, my butt is dragging.

Hey guys...Up early again and we finished the north side by noon. After lunch we moved the scaffolding to the west side and decided we were hot, tired and ready to call it a day. Came home intending to take a shower and relaxing. Before I hardly walked in the door, the contractor doing the lady's house I've been doing things off and on called me, asking for me to come look at a couple things. So I went down there and walked out with more work... hanging the doors and trimming out the basement for them.

Love the pictures! I still have not seen a C8 in person.
I, kind of, like the color combo......but I'm a sucker for non-all black interiors.

Snakes don't really bother me too much, as long as I know where they are or are expecting them. But one like that one pictured, is a nuisance.

Hey guys...was up early and out the door by 7:30 this morning. It was cool, low 60s at that time. Gathered up tools and headed down to my buddys' place to remove siding on his dojo. Got the north side removed and half of the siding put back up on that side. This is the tough side, it has windows, the AC, and gas lines to work around. We got up passed the AC and gas lines, so tomorrow should go a bit faster.

Well, I gave the pickup and bath and a good cleaning inside. Let 007 down and treated the leather in him too.

It's too freaking hot....well, the temps are only low 90s, but the cool front brought a lot of moisture so it pretty humid.... feels like eastern Kansas. I just wish if it was going to be humid, it would drop some of that moisture as rain.

It will probably rain like crazy this week. Why, you ask? Because the farmers here are going to start cutting wheat this week. What little there is, because of lack of rain.

Morning guys...Cool start, but headed to the mid 90s. Nothing really planned for today.

I trust all of you are having a great fathers day.

Sounds like you're describing ME.

I've got some work in the shop today, but basically not getting too carried away.

Earlier this week I had a couple call about having me cut a church pew down. They brought it to me yesterday and we hammered out the details...basically, how much they wanted cut off. It was 8' long and they decided to have me cut it down to 5'. I spent about 3 hours last evening and completed the cut down. This morning, they text me and ask me to figure out a way to take the 3' section I cut off and turn it into another bench. I told them I could do that. So after returning from the 'city' I started in on that and I got the leg system pretty much completed. I'll build the arms (required to help support the back) tomorrow. Then I'll stain and finish it.

Hey guys...Cool here too, mid 70s, cloudy, calm winds and a little bit of rain...and I mean a little.... .05" We'd take more. Still a wonderful break from the mid 90s to low 100s and 30-50mph winds we've been seeing for the last 2 1/2 weeks.

Made the trek over to the 'city' and picked up some materials for the lady's house project and groceries. I guess I'll go out and spray a little paint on some trim.

Well, the wind came back up by mid morning, but on the other hand, the temps only got into the mid 80s.By late afternoon, the wind changed from the south to the north and not quite as brisk.

4 hours working on the computers this morning (and into the afternoon). I'm confident that we got them cleaned up. Made some changes to some of their security features as well.

Morning guys... a bit cooler this morning and the wind has finally let up some. Not as hot today, low 90s. Tomorrow they are saying low 80s...that will be a very welcome change.

Got a call from a lady here in town whose husband got hacked and he gave them access to his computer so they could "help them clean up the viruses". While they were on they asked him to access his bank accounts so he could check to see if they had been 'compromised'. She figures out it's scam and gets him shut down. They start making calls to freeze their bank accounts and CCs. Anyway, I go over and grab two of their four computers and clean them up last night and I'm headed over this morning to clean the over two. Good thing I'm at a stand still in the shop for a couple days.

Have a great day.

Morning guys... Windier than crap again today...I've just about had enough of the wind. We live in a place where wind is 'normal', but, we get a break from it off and on. This crap has been constant for 2 weeks, night and day. 20 to 30 with gusts to 50- 60mph. On top of that the temps are supposed to be 100+ today.

Matt, it's a great deal that you can pursue your dream of acquiring the cars you want. Gris, was it windy? DJ, you have to do that too? That's what my 'slush fund' is for. Hang in there Bob.

OK, enough of no motivation, got to get to work... I got a table top to build.....

Morning guys... Welcome back DJ. Yea, we have banter.

More hot and windy today...no relief in site... well they say we have a chance for a cool down next week, but 90-92 isn't much relief.

Some things to do in the shop again today.

Freaking Win 10 updates can f#@k up things for sure. I've been running around fixing lots of things from the latest updates....no printer issue like you experienced, but lots of other issue.

Glad you got it fixed without much problem.

Morning guys... Low 70s now headed toward the century mark they say. Didn't quite make it yesterday, 99. Nice part is we get the wind with the heat, so it feels like a blast furnace.

A few things to do in the shop today. Like Tommy, though, I didn't get up 'til after 8, and am not really motivated now that I am up.

Tommy, sometimes it's just as well to dump the printer and get a new one. Been there, done that.

Morning guys...nice here too, for now. Low 70s but headed towards that century mark.

Not a lot planned. A friend gave me one of those 'stretchy bra" for 007. I've ordered the replacement snaps, so I'm thinking I might install that today. And the pickup needs a bit of cleanup......

I hope everyone here has a great Sunday.

Rosie and I drove over to the 'city' for a "kruise in". Nothing special, just some car guys getting together to shoot the sh!t for a while. It was good to get 007 out for a while and drive him a bit. 007 was probably the newest vehicle there.....there was one of those 'slingshot' three wheeled car/cycle hybrids, but several 60s musclecars, some hotrods (35 Ford convertible and a 31 coupe) and several late 60s through 80s pickups.

It was pretty hot when we first got there and had to park in the sun as the shaded spots were gone. But, the sun went behind some trees and the building, and when it did it made things livable.

Morning...Cool here this morning. 60 when we got up, 66 now and headed to low 100s ... with a 'slight' breeze of 30mph.

Got some stuff done yesterday in the shop. The guy from the bank called me and said he needed two more guards...so I'll be working those today. I'll need to work on a wedding plaque as well. Daughter of friend, a former student (both father and daughter) is getting married this fall. She, and her fiance, came by with a chunk of walnut and want a plaque for guests to sign at the wedding. Beautiful piece of lumber, should be a pretty plaque.

Our local (over in the 'city') car group is having a kruise-in tonight, planning on going over after church. Not sure if I will enter 007 or just go over to see who/what is there. Benefits local homeless shelter so the cause is a good one.

I trust , all of you, will have a great Saturday/weekend.
