Idle hands and all that aside, I fish and hunt as much as possible. I can't stand wasting daylight! :mrgreen:

Correct, Pop. I work my tail off so momma can stay cool inside. But I can count on NO fingers the times I've watched that show! :mrgreen:

Thanks for looking, fellas.

Pop,

I do believe you and I will get along just fine!. I'd rather tinker outside with sweat running down my nose than be inside wasting the day away. I've put in some serious shop time after everyone else goes asleep also - I just try to keep it quiet for the neighbors. More later-

Me too, I will take a break occasionally and come inside to cool down and try to drink water constantly, When it is really hot I try to not do anything too strenuous and keep a slower pace, or do any major welding I guess :roll:

Going to out right now and do some push mowing before my grass becomes hay, supposed to start raining tonight or tomorrow so I can work in the shed on the Comet when it is raining. At least the rain is supposed to usher in a cooler weather.

See Ya,
Mike

but to a point you'll always be the same,,,but after the yrs start pileing up,you do start slowing down and will find it easier to NOT work as much...and yes,,we could get along just great !!...and the biggest reason being...you are a family man and POP is big on family!!……….

A little update -
Well, Pop and Sassy - I'm in my mid 40's so I still have a bit of GO left! :mrgreen:

Finished repairing the wall the MIL drove through yesterday morning. I deleted the old garage doors to make mommas gym/ den official; she loves it. I'll post pics if I get the chance.

Almost have that Cobra upgrade out of my way, but now he wants an h-pipe, cats deleted, etc. etc..

Still getting the 65's mileage up before winter and hopefully EFI; went to 2 cruise ins yesterday and had a blast.

Have all the parts on hand now to complete my mill rebuild; looks like I'll be about $700 in it complete and running; not bad for a 9x48 3hp Clausing knee (Bridgeport clone).

And to top it all off, deer season opens next Saturday. I was super sick last fall and didn't really get out, so I'm planning on making up for that.

That about wraps it up for now -

Thanks for looking -

Dan
