Cleaned the rental place next door, pays good, pays for my hobby, saws.
Replaced leaky hyd filter on my splitter and diagnosed its dirty air filter, changed its oil, then split a few rounds with my 2 yr old grandaugter as lead helper.
She bought me a cold Miller when we were done stacking the split wood.
Had a great day.

Spent the past 3 1/2 days working on a bathroom reno for a colleague. This is far from my day job.
I take on these projects once a year or so for folks when I am off my regular work and not working on my own places. Helps with the brain and saw $'s. Plus, I get to work with my hands for a change. Get to be a framer, plumber, electrician, tile setter and drywaller. Enjoyable. Lotsa white, but that is what they wanted. Kinda felt like being trapped in an Ikea.

Mowed up to the two trees I plan on dropping in the am. Then lost a knife on the sickle. Two stinkin' hot to fix.
So I did this:

Figure out just where I want to weld that receiver under the bed and voila!
