    I have half a day being at home wondering what to do next I made a batch of homemade beer early on this week and waiting to bottle it. Working in the garage painting my sons air plane and now wondering what to do? Been watching paint dry since noon and screw the idea of spring cleaning it snowed this morning.
    What are you all doing to pass the time?????

      Yard work, stump & limbs burned, 383 de-greased, threads chased, state taxes done, oil changed in the truck, etc., etc.

      If you run out of things to do, I can put you to work here.

          Put the cuda on the lift. New gas tank and sending unit 2 years ago and the gauge reads 1/8 tank when full. I saved the old one, gonna hook it up out of the tank and see if moving it moves the needle. Otherwise might be the gas gauge. Put the shades on the shop lights and rolled the lawn. Dang, gonna have to go back to work to relax!!

                got the kids (plus a loaner) so ive been pretending to be a teacher (not nearly as much fun as when i play that with the missus)

                after class weve been outside having bonfires, making smores and just generally playing outside
                did some fishing too

                im hoping for some nice weather, maybe ill play with the exhaust layout on the duster some

                  20200315_071051.jpg See that blue spot behind the plastic? that's my car hidden away from all the paint over spray from the plane. Yes I do have a car to restore and parts to get it done are trapped behind the curtain.
                  My kids plane is important to him to finish this summer and doing the best I can to get it done and yes my car is real important to finish up my long term dream is behind that plastic.

                          My buddy is building an airplane as well. Had the fuselage stretched and larger wings built.
                          Huge job. he found an efi engine for it,hes saving up to get it built. Will be a nice float plane when he’s done.

                            Doodled on my shop door. Never did anything like this before. Was fun! 4B198249-2EB0-4340-9550-D91A2CA6487A.jpeg

                              Just painting this one and up grading the instruments. The original owner had no idea how to paint but I give him credit for his trying the best he could.

                              Cleaned around the lawn, to the garage, several times per day - cleaned, rearranged etc. and to the cabin, and back, daily (12 miles, one way). While at the cabin, I cruise around the mountain trails, with this. Polaris Ranger - 8.JPG

                                That would take one hell of a projector.

                                  Our rural county got the stay at home order last night, but "had da ya know"??? Too far from Houston for their news, county newspaper comes out once a week we don't take it anyway. Word of mouth?? Yep someone told us. Sorta like the county's first pos. person from 3 days ago,..a guy told a guy that told a guy, that told his wife, that she read it on StupidBook!!! I mean FaceBook!!

                                      Washed two or was the three? cars. Went to town to find there in now a stay home order for our rural county. . Watched the classic "The Outlaw Josey Wales", burned some brush, feed the critters, rehung a gate that got knocked off its hinge. Memory must be getting bad, surely I did more than that!!???????????/ Leftover supper tonite, might be the highlight of the day!!!

                                        Still working. Even though the production side is a tough row to hoe right now my to-do list on equipment updates, building repairs, and general now is a good time to fix this and that is growing daily...

                                        I don't mind. Wouldn't know how to do anything else but work and since Printing is an essential business it will take a big slap of the Gavel to close us lol....
