Installing base boards on one wall in the living room.
It was paneled but Mrs Hov thought that made the room too dark so I took it down.
Now it needs a new base board for a finished look.

Just mowed 10 acres of hay. It's good to be back on the farm for a few days!

I just scheduled some flight time at the local grass strip so I'm finally working on my sport pilot rating.

My patience and charity to my fellow man after another horrible Minneapolis commute.

I finished fitting the last piece of baseboard. Today I'll repair the gate to the side yard, which was damaged by the wind yesterday.

Back at the pipe bench and having a blast making dust. Although the Beetle was a blast, I'm glad to have the boxes of VW parts replaced with the pile of tools that forms as a pipe nears completion!Image

A Cessna 150 with a nose wheel that won't turn left.
It's a bad steering rod. A mere $430 part. This is why I hesitate to own an airplane...

I built a thing tonight.
