Not a thing. My daughter is moving to Sweden tomorrow, so i've been spending time with her. I definitely have a list though.

Actually, it went in through the passenger door. The dash is out for repaint, so I didnt have to worry about scratching it.

I got the steel to make a mobile base for my bandsaw. Took a few measurements and drilled into the end of a bolt.

Finished re-assembling the carb off of my Polaris Sportsman 500 and installed it.
Started it up, took it for a ride, came back and hooked up the Warn snow blade.
Then sat around the wood stove and drank a beer ("Snow Day" by New Belgium Brewing out of Fort Collins, Colo.)

Default Worked on Christmas decorations

Today I worked on Christmas decorations in my back garage. My wife always wanted an arch over the driveway entrance with garland and icicle lights. I tried once using PVC pipe but it was too flimsy. I am using half inch conduit which is better but not rigid enough but with enough guy wires may make it. I don't have access to a set of rolls to run a larger pipe through, any suggestions. I told her it would be great is I used the half inch conduit and built a 3 pipe truss but she didn't like that idea. I only suggest!

Better hope she isn't reading over your shoulder!
I worked on running the trunk line ductwork of my shop heat pump system in the attic.

Just did some basketball drills with my 10 year old daughter, as she has her first tournament of the year this weekend, and I will miss it as I'm traveling for work.

Of course, I first lined two of the drawers on my "new to me" RemLine top chest, and laid out my new set of Williams stubbies that I bought off the guy here on GJ (but from eBay).

Isn't life grand?
