      I spent the day stacking a bunch of fire wood....not to be confused with fire ants stacked in Florida

          The easiest way to stack fire ants is to put you foot into their mound. They will stack themselves and then all at once, BITE!

          Me and ants seem to find each other every time I do any yard work.

            • Hanger looks great! I plan to start replacing the lights in my shop with High Bay's once I run out of replacement ballasts for my T8 lights, LOL.

                Not sure when I am going to get around to installing it, next on my list is cleaning and organizing. The other shop is a mess! I also sent the scissor lift back to rental land today....I'm declaring the ceiling done.....hope that architect doesn't give me a punch list!

                I need to get the cleaing done, then pull the heads on the Jeep and get them to the machine shop.

                I have also promised an attractive lady a furniture project ......how do i get talked into these things??? And heading to Barret Jackson next week

                Guessing I will get rolling on Fuggly again in February

                  • You all saying how 60 is cold, it was -17 C (1F) here this morning, woke up to frost so thick I questioned weather I should work from home today

                    I'd kill to have 60...

                    Arch that shop looks amazing, I could never dream of such a big shop. All of my projects have been in driveways or best case if it is raining a tiny basement. Guess that is what hard work gets you

                      • Skater I am good with 60 for sure this time of year. It goes from that to 5 in 12 hours sometimes......we are in just the right spot. There is a reason the national weather service has a huge research center just south of my house! And oddly enough I would just have a 35 year old pole barn, not the hangar, if it wasn't for an EF5 tornado rearranging it! But the insurance paid off and I have been working on the hangar ever since. I do have to say if I go anywhere it will be further south, hate the cold!

                        No hangers Sam, I'm sure the old tenant took them or sold them. But they are fairly cheap when you consider the slatwall was free!

                                I have to agree with you on that one. You only THINK you are building large enough at that time, only to find out, it isn't. Don't allow an empty area show up. It gets stuffed with something real quick!
