So true and so true
I'm covered in stabilized wood dust again. Ain't complainin'.
It’s always fun to wander around looking at it all...wish I could remember all their names.
Better to have a not need....
Good ol' Laphroaig is kicking in, haha. Love that stuff.
Especially in the morning, it's the dust of ... Victory.
It's gonna be scraping 90F here today... a bit hot to ride (anything)... a bit hot to be in the shop doing anything... might have to tackle life-things in the "office". Meh.
Same here. Been trying to make myself go out and get yard work done this weekend, but the a/c is feeling a little too good, haha.
Gonna break 100*, afternoon will see me doing a bit of roof repair. Yea.
Snarking on a tropical island
Working in a foundry sucks too, especially in this abnormally hot summer we're having right now.
I am glad that task is over. I looked like a boiled lobster just as I hit the shower.
I can see foundry work bein' all that it's cracked up to be in summer!
On an arboreal note; I completely wussed out and put on work gloves to get back to pruning the Sequoia tree. Much improved production!
Side note; G. Sequoia's have been naturalized in a SoCal grove on the slopes of Mt. San Jacinto.
Take two of these, and call me in the morning.
Bad storm gonna hit central Illy before too long: https://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=ilx&product=N0R&loop=yes
des Moines got hit with a good one this afternoon.
1" of rain in 40 minures and dropped the temp 20 degrees.
on the flip side, the heat index was 111 f (44c) at 3 and 114 (46) at 4 here - in the shade on the North side of the house.
(yes, I bailed out of work early today to let the dogs in)
Beware of witches on bicycles.
naah - wife's bicycle stays here in Ks, where it's safe.
OTOH, because it apparently wasn't hot enough out today, the neighbor called and asked if I could fire up the forge and help his kid out with making a couple of "hitching post" straps -- apparently the boy is rebuilding the historic 19th C jail in the town closest to us and needed a couple of straps to hold the top rail on the hitching post.
I fired up the forge and mostly told him where to hit - he cut the piece of steel we used in half, hammered it flat, and punched the holes.
then I bent them over the anvil horn and showed him how to blacken steel with beeswax as a finish.
took about 1/2 hour total, and was down to 106 out when we finished.
It was down right chilly today, only 98*. Great day for ironwork.
dang, stuck here doing computerwork today.... want to do hand-sanding. so badly. sorta. not. but also a little.
