Morning , good coffee, I bought a corning pot that brews on the stove, Wow so much better. I bought it at a flea market (we go every Saturday) like brand new for 8 bucks.
Celebrated my brothers 62 birthday last night with a pulled pork dinner out on the lake on his Pontoon boat 7 of us. Great time and a beauty of a sun set.
Parts came yesterday for my weed whip, I wore out the lower half again,
part of my work camping here at his Hobby farm.
Beautiful morning, lake is clam like a sheet of glass.
Had 3 hooping crains fly in one of his riding rings yesterday morning boy are those things huge, never seen one in the wild. There is also a pair of loons out on the lake this year we got too see the babies riding on mommies back pretty neat.
The path for us to get out is pretty dry now. I told my brother I would like to get at least a day of fishing in before we leave and he said we are more than welcome to stay as long as we want. so what the heck we've been here for almost 2 months now and have no regreats. He tells me that his property hasn't looked this nice for years.
I know now that I could go full time and not miss the S & B in the least.
Have a Great day I know I will. Just might be the day I get to drop in a line...
Take care, Tim

Hi Tim, good to hear from you, glad your summer has been going so well . To see any of those wild birds in their natural habitat is special.

Terry,
Glad that I could help, it is always nice to have another set of eyes to look at something for fresh ideas.
Tim,
Glad that you are having a wonderful time at your brothers. Full timing with no S&B's is not for everyone, but it sure is great for me. I do miss my shop, but not the upkeep of the S&B.
Frank

Frank, that's what makes this site so nice, and you guys have been extremely helpful, like you said another set of eyes . I'll have to buy the plastic tub first, so I'll know how to build it, but it'll be good up front because that's where the slinky is anyway. Jeez, I just thought, any one of you guys will be able to set up the TH because you'll know where everything is .

Good Evening, Been working on the front compartments, framed in and installed the doors today. Next I have room for another compartment above the ones you see now, in the middle.

Good Morning, Bap, Thanks so much, nope no big movie screen, we will put some graphics on eventually. Frank, the insides are basically done, yup the tub and enclosure, some more trim and finish up the pull out pantry. I do have the garage to finish, need to put in E Track ect for the bikes, there will be more cabinets in there as well, plus some holders for straps, oil and cleaners ect. I should be able to finish the outside front area today, then I will need to finish the insides of those compartments later.

Terry,
Ok, sounds like not much left and compared to where you started, it isn't. In reality it sounds like you still have a pretty good amount of work left.

Good Afternoon, Frank, yup there is a fair amount to do, some of which I can do in between trips, I didn't mention that I need to finish the solar setup too. You'll like the storage compartments I put in above the battery area, I looked around and found another door so I made two compartments, I lined them with a thin vinyl sheet so they could be easily cleaned, still need to button up the two outside front spots and install the battery vent.
