Repaired my step=father's dryer and two truck door remotes, replaced his security light globe, batteries in TV/Cable remote and inspected his porch roof Friday besides the grand-daughter shuttle service. Finally finished the last 1+ acre of mowing Saturday...yesterday was church, errands and some piddly tasks in the garage.

 

Kids start back to school Wednesday:lol::D:):); Change oil/filter/service my truck; a short trip tentatively planned for end of week through next weekend. Yard needs mowed and weed-eaterized;

Tomorrow, I'm planning to take my step-father to this EVENT

 

 

Dave - right now - pics or it didn't happen! 

Hope you have a great time of it.  I am sure that SF will.

No shop time for a while! LOML is off work last week and this week, and we have been taking day trips to various research centers, libraries and cemeteries, looking for information on her ancestors. I have already traced her family back to Plymouth colony and beyond, but this is a search for documents to confirm her ..... dare I say it..... Loyalist connections! One of her great-great-great grandfathers was one of the 80,000 British Loyalists who left America in the late 1700's to settle in what was then Upper Canada. Hopefully, this doesn't mean that I will be tarred and feathered, and banned from this forum! :unsure:

John - no ill will from this end, hope you hang around for the long haul!

 

@Chips N Dust, glad you were able to get this stopped in time.  That was a close call!

Well, I guess we can overlook this since you're generally a "member in good standing" :rolleyes:.  It's gonna cost you a lot of donuts though!:lol: Happy hunting!

Thanks guys. BIG relief! Thought I'd have to start my own forum, "The Loyalist Woodworker"! :D

Aren't they incredible! Those kids that flew in them had courage we can only dream about. I have been lucky enough to walk thru a B-17 and B-29. I hope to live long enough to see one of "my" old planes at an airshow- The Intruder (A-6).

Lew, had a buddy who was a "plane captain" on an A6 during 'Nam'. Don't remember which carrier. He spoke highly of that machine and spoke with reverence of the pilots. Several didn't come home.

Back in 2001, I was lucky enough to take a flight in a B-17. Very, Very Cool! When we landed, I was able to sit in the bombardier's seat.

Cutting 18+ hours a day.  Got the big local Art Fair this coming week end.  Last event of the year (well, maybe one more, but depends how many custom orders I get).  Hunting season is getting closer (priorities prevail) and the holidays are homing in.  Don't want to stay too busy, just kind of busy.

I'm not sure if it was the same group or or not, but a few years ago, SF & I were able to tour a B-17 & B-24 at Purdue. The B-17 is just awesome. I would love to crawl through a B-29:P

Looking forward to tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be near perfect; sunny, low humidity & dew point with afternoon temps only around 76o

Dunkirk...what can I say?

Haven't seen it. My ultimate WWII "movie" is Band of Brothers (HBO). For Vietnam- "We Were Soldiers".

Band of Brothers is also my best. I also like the HBO series "The Pacific". I have watched that and read both books that the series was based around.

So far I've liked all of them (haven't seen Dunkirk) except maybe Apocalypse Now, which struck me as a little too screwy to be real. But I have to admit, Pacific was an extremely  well done series (as was B of B).

Cannot believe y'all left out Patton (fantastic movie), The Longest Day (good not great), The Great Escape (a great one), Think I have watched Band of Brothers five times. Left out The Sullivans, Iwo Jima , Pearl Harbor to name a few. Guess you figured I love war movies.

Oh was too tired to post yesterday that we got the pews out and I hauled home. Got the small stuff unloaded and left the 12 foot sections in the truck till my son got home. Well while I was cooking burgers it started to rain I rushed out to unload (adrenaline) . Got them in the shop and you would not believe the blum (lacquer finish).Started the air and whne I came back out was cleared . We got an inch in the first hour and total 3.5 in 5 hours.
