Don't feel bad Jim. I didn't catch on either.

Home dump......

50 pages behind Tracy? That's not so bad. You have a lot to look forward to.

I wouldn't mind using the mill at this time of year, except that in order to cut lumber you need to have some logs. I don't have anything suitable at the moment. So for the small amount I needed, it was much easier to buy it. Besides, it comes kiln dried already.

Well, we just had some visitors for the last 4 hours or so! Our association president came over and was here for a couple of hours...then a friend all the way from Toronto (who has a tiny cabin here) came by for another couple of hours. He's a musician and writes his own music. Plays bass guitar, just like yours truly. The only difference is that he's good!

Now, if there are no further interruptions, I had better get on with that cleanup. Have almost enough rough wood for the walls etc., should be enough by the time everything is straightened out there. Looks as though I may be up late tonight getting the machine work done.

It would be nice if I can get on with some of the painting tomorrow!
I see your point, it would be a little hard to cut lumber without logs.

I know it was good to have some company today, it gave you a chance to rest for a little while. You play the Bass also? Good gravy is there anything you don't know how to do?

Talking about a pile of wood, that looks like a lot of good wood, the pile I have out in the shop is mostly junk that I hate to throw away.

I ran out of steam to finish the last of the big pile, but I'm down to the last 1 1/2 feet now. There is way more wood than I need to finish up in the "good" pile, and lots of the boards are machined and ready for undercoat.

That I can do now, so I'll get as much done as I can until I run out of space to put the boards.

I know it's a crime, but I had to cut up quite a bit of cedar for firewood. Just no place to keep it...sorry about that.

The good news is that I can very nearly see all of the kitchen counter now, so as soon as the walls are done, I can start on the countertops. That I am definitely looking forward to after all this boring stuff.

What a way to finish a day, knowing tomorrow you won't have to scrap to see if you have enough.

Buddy, that hurts, having to burn a piece of that pretty cedar. It does burn good and fast though and the popping I just love except on an open fire. Is it cool enough for a fire up your way tonight? It is 11:35 PM and 83ฐF here and the AC is blasting to keep us cool. (you did notice the little ฐ sign didn't you)

Will this be your last wall to do? That has been a loooooot of wood working to cover that much area.

The last wall with this sort of wood. There is one wall and part of another up in the guest bedroom to do, but it is the very thin strips which bend around the curves.

It was officially down to 7บ C last night. Around 13 today. The house was much warmer because of the solar design - even though we didn't exactly get a whole lot of sun.

I didn't need a fire, but I had to get rid of at least some of the garbage wood. I will have to take a few wheelbarrow loads down to the old woodshed tomorrow - the big one up by the house is full. บบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบ บบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบ

Things are progressing OK...I did get a table full of boards undercoated last night, and just finished another coat of paint on them a few minutes ago.

We are in the middle of a lovely deluge right now, so I won't even try to move any wood to the shed yet.

Perseverance will be the order of the day as I try to get to the bottom of the woodpile inside. I also want to get the door jambs made up and installed as well.

I can almost feel being there, it cool and raining outside, Fall in the air, at least up your way. What a wonderful day to stay inside. 7ฐC is pretty cool, at least for me it is. We hope you have a great day buddy.

Did you play in a band Keith? That is one sharp instrument. I can't even play the radio.

When I was a kid Jim, a bunch of us got together and had a go at rock 'n roll.

Somewhere, I think I might have an old photo (taken maybe 50 years ago?) which mum kept on her shelf since I was a kid. If I can dig it up to show you, you'll get a good laugh out of it.

About fifty years ago I was a Boy Scout attending the International Scouting Jamboree in Colorado Springs Colorado. Roy Rogers and Dwight Eisenhower was also there. We cooked our own meals and tried to do our own laundry. I don't ever remember in my whole life ever being that hungry and that dirty again.

Don't for the life of me know why I thought of that chapter in my life - nor do I know why I felt it was necessary to share it here. I guess I was trying to remember what I was doing fifty years ago.

Fifty years ago - OH MY GOD!!!
