The excavator for the new building stopped in this morning and wants to get started on the driveway and pad next week, so this afternoon I cut down another tree that he wanted removed, limbed it out and loaded it all on my trailer. That will go to the brush collection site in the morning.
It sounds like they are determined to get my building up yet this fall... Man, that would be nice to get some of the stuff out of the current building so I had some room to move and park my truck in there.
That would be spectacular to git r did before cold sets in. I am kinda looking forward to getting the toy chainsaw out this weekend for that one limb in the yard.

Man, I would think Gary has a generator for when the power goes out, but maybe it isn't that often where you are. When I moved to the previous house in 2000, the power went out 4 times in one summer !!! One time it was for 5 days...man I was pissed and went and bought a generator that I still have. When you live on acreage, no power means no water, so no flushy the toilet or showers.
Does have generator but wife doesn't get along with it. They might be on city water.

I just watched a Grinch one so I am ramping it up on the Halloween specials. Thought just came to me that them tornadoes weren't nothin. Saw a show other day where about 200 very old skeletons of all ages were found when excavating an archaeologically (sp?) uncovered pit. Great big holes in all their skulls. Hail storm, grass roofs. Oh my, now theres something a guy don't think much about these days. Having nowhere to run to and no clue what it is. Wow. Can I get a hell yeah for plywood and radar? The other night I heard my vinyl siding "ruffle" like feathers. Ain't heard that before. Spooookyyyy.

Alright, I'll stop telling stories. Go to bed now, it won't hail tonight.

idrivejunk (trying to start the other spectators chanting...) We want shapely metal! We want shapely metal! Come on everybody!





Was there cool stuffs made, Pugsy? You're macan me wonder.

Um lets see, IDJ loose end report: Intense theraputic efforts Sunday resulted in a shoulder pain free week thus far. The tarnaders was actually two. Both of the 100-110 MPH variety, with one down for a half hour, nine miles long and mile and a half across. All I got was near to some stout straightline wind gusts, but boss man was on the tail end of the second, stronger tornado and I guarantee its a war zone out there. He said there were a pack of utility trucks out by the highway this morning and man yeah... I can tell this storm thing has him wore to a nub. Hope he got power back today. Coral actually grows in his fish tank.

As a typical frivolity injection... Am starting off gently on this season's horror / suspense genre exploration, with Scooby Doo first. Then a Winnie the Pooh halloween one. Salem, werewolf and Bigfoot documentaries, etc. Working my way toward an EEEEVILLL! crescendo.

here's a link to another site. You can't see any pics until joining and making an introduction post. I believe the fellow was having meets in the fall and spring. The paid seminars are not mandatory.

I found my camera, you guys are in trouble now...here's a few pics from yesterdays work. The heavy cable was behind the grey panels the PO had put up. I had to cut it and bring it out to tap in for the compressor outlet. Rather nerve wracking cutting thru a 240 volt cable. I had turned off the breaker and made certain the lights on that circuit didn't work, but I've been fooled with electric power before on 120 volt lines and didn't really desire to get fried on a 240 circuit...





Had to do a few modifications to the junction boxes.



Of course, once I cut the cable, it was too short to reconnect another drop, so used 2 boxes and some wire from my well pump motor replacement several years ago to connect it all back together.



Of the 4 tool boxes I had at the old place, I put 1 in the storage locker and of course, that is where my hole saw set was... I bought this hole set at Fleet Farm for $11... figured it should be good enough for wood and plastic and it did do the job.





Turns out the well wire is 12 gauge and I thought it was 10. It's OK for now, but I will get some 10 gauge and rewire this in the future, along with the drop line to the compressor outlet.





Had a little oops with the box covers overlapping, so a little creative cutting with the sawzall took care of that...

123pugsy Not done today, but finally feeling better from the meet on the weekend. It's back breaking labor, running around helping the guys out.
Good thing only a few showed up each day.







































Yesterday 09:18 PM
Too Many Projects I got my compressor wired up, and then remembered I drained the oil to lay it down on the trailer for transport. The male end I got was wrong, so I "borrowed" the end off the balancer for now and the new receptacle broke when I tried to push the wrong plug in it, so I will need to replace both of them now, but it works...
