All About Her

Last weekend I was able to spend most of my time out in the shop doing this or that. At one point I was done with everything and trying to find something to do.
That kind of thing usually does not happen because I have a list a mile long with detailed projects that need to be done. I guess I really didn't want to start on any of them and just wanted to tinker in the shop.

I finished the trophies for the at home chili cook off we are having next weekend and I think they turned out okay. I would have rather of had a better selection of stains but you use what you got.  
Tip of the day, when you are at Lowe's or Homodepot, stop by the paint section and look at their "Oops" section. They will have a shelve full of items mixed wrong and will sell for a fraction of the retail cost. A gallon of $32.00 paint mixed in the wrong color will sell for $5 and same with the stains.

This weekend will be all about the wife, she turns 41 on Saturday. I have a real nice evening planned for her and I hope everything turns out good. The reason I say that is because me and fancy places really don't mix.
The last time I took her somewhere fancy, a little Japanese Geisha girl brought me a beverage that was on fire. The are some things you just don't mix all at one time and that night it was a fancy place, a redneck, alcohol and fire.
I don't know if they still have my picture up at the front door with the words banned written across it in big bold letters or not, but damn that was fun.

  6. I love Lowe's ooops shelves for lots of things other than wrongly mixed paint. One day, I found spray paint with no cap for $1. They said it was not used, the cap just broke somehow. You could tele no paint had been sprayed from the nozzle.

    Those trophies are great. Craftsmanship and design are superb!

    1. PP you are right. I have picked up a bunch of good stuff other than paints and stains. No matter what I go for, I always make a stop by the paint department just to see.

      Thanks for the compliment.
