Moved some totes from the floor to the loft, freeing up some much needed floor space.

Installed cork tiles on the wall, put up my 1969 Budweiser Clock / Light, fished the surround sound speaker wires through the walls, put the coat rack and rod holders back up.

Ordered one hundred 5X7 and 8X10 picture frames so I can frame my favorite fishing pictures and hang them.

The sailfish mount for the center of the wall should be here in two weeks.

Spent a few hours scrubbing and oiling the Bport and a few other tools that suffered a few spots of flash rust due to the recent warm temps. Unfortunately due to necessary household work I havent had time to get a new insulated garage door installed to replace the fiberglass joke on there now, so heating and dehumidifying would be a wasted effort. I really cant wait for spring so I can get the garage renovated finally.

Saved a trip to the store for one of those spring clip fuel hose clamps. On my way out the door, my eyes fell on a box of junk nuts/bolts/screws/fittings and the Kingdom was saved!

Nothing today, or the day before, or the day before, or the day before, or the day before. Laid out with the flu.

Actually Saturday, went for a motorcycle ride.. first time I have ever ridden in January.. was out for a couple of hours.. bike ran great and I felt great too!

Came home, washed the truck, car and bike in the driveway.

January in South Western Ontario, Canada.. who would have thought it possible.

Only thing I didn't do was go mt biking!.. maybe next week-end.

Refueled the salamander heater, kerosene dropped $6 for 2.5 gallons from the last time I bought it during Christmas time. I still have three boxes of tools to sort and find a place in a toolbox. Still trying to decide on the 30 hp rotary phase converter plan.

Kept looking for my dang set of hole saws so I can get my shelt
F to hold my cordless drills. Alas, no luck after tearing through everything, so I cracked open a beer and tinkered around.

Finished up the key rack. Used some spare spokes as the hooks.

Worked on a customer's Jeep over the weekend, picked up a non-running snowblower on Friday night. Worked on it Saturday morning, got it running and cleaned up, changed oil and checked things over to make sure everything was in good working order. Threw it on the internet for sale yesterday morning before taking the wife to breakfast. Got home from breakfast and had three messages from people wanting it.

First guy that come and looked at it bought. My wife said I should have asked more but I made a few hundred dollars for an hours work and was able to sell a nice snowblower to someone and they got a good deal on one. I was content with that.

Mike.

Did all of the cutting and staining in the garage. Then installed these railings and iron balusters at someone's house.
