Yeah, I would have expected a bit of corrosion after 18 years.

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!

I dug this out of the side yard today. I always sorta had a plan for it, but with the new Behemoth garage instead of building an underwater in-line dual prop scooter that'll come back to the boat by remote control, it's gonna be attached to one of my Kennedy boxes so I have a remote control tool box.


I paid $5 for it and it had a good battery in it. It steers right left, has a speed adjust and will go about 60 yards on it's own if you're dumb enough to turn it loose. The remote control works out to about 100 yards.

I had a cart-tug from Walmart, but gave it away. now THAT was going to be one hell of a underwater scooter.

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.
