Happy Weekend Folks - What are your plans?

We have a good morning thread running, so why not a weekend plans thread.

It is chilly here this morning in Central Virginia, 34, with a high of 53 expected.

I'm heading to Blacksburg this afternoon the the Florida State football game. Should be good and cold up on the mountain by kick-off. The rest of the weekend will consist of doing all the things I should do today instead of going to the game.

Those of you that get to camp, enjoy!!!

I'm just going to relax - and ponder on what penalty I'm going to have pay for avoiding all the things on the honey-do list. Gee, Kim, I might even spend a few minutes rooting for the "Other Virginia Team".

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

I'm stuck at work I've heard working in Florida is a "Tropical depression". If I can get out of here at noon, I've still got to go home and work on a boat so I can return it to it's rightfull owner. Sunday I get to go to the In laws for dinner.

Several years ago my wife worked as a trainer for a company that had customers all over the world. One place she had to go to work for two weeks was Hawaii. Talk about depressing. She had to go to work everyday while all the tourists were playing.

No worries Stan..I'm at work right now. I get paid to sit and wait for something to happen.

That means, while many people are enjoying the 3 day weekend that the Veteran's have provided them...this Veteran will be at work again.

Remember to pay your respects to all Veteran's this holiday...but let's not forget to pay respect to those which gave the ultimate sacrifice for their beloved country.

God bless them!

Mesquite crosses? What are they?

Working with son on a school project - Animals of NB. We picked the Eastern Cougar - which is supposed to extinct here but there have been sightings. Same beast as the Florida Panther I guess. We're making a diarama of one stalking a deer... son wants blood but I think we'll pass on that detail.

Other than that Remembrance Day service at church.

simply a cross made from Mesquite wood

Mesquite is a native tree to Texas and is I believe the 3rd or 4th hardest wood in the world. I sand it progressively with finer and finer paper until it is super smooth then finish with tung oil which gives it a beutiful burgandy color. 3-4 coats of tung oil with 800 grit sandings between and a final buff using a terrycloth towel on an random orbital sander.

after I get some finished I'll post some pics
