Thanks, I indeed like flashlights! I am currently “stuck” in the UK due to COVID-19. no further travel possible.

I have a Convoy S2+ in grey and I am planning on getting more lights soon.

I got to the supermarket at the door unlocking and picked up bread,milk,eggs,chopped meat for a meatloaf and a six pack of Texas Craft Beer.

In the garage I reloaded about a 1000 .357 target loads and another thousand .44mag target loads in the afternoon.Yeap I'm a pre lock S&W revolver guy.Carried a Model 10 for 20 years.

After a late lunch spent some time playing a few FPS on the desktop that I haven't played in years.They worked OK on W10 Pro;Crysis and the Metro games.

I'm not much of a TV guy but do like a few dramas on the computer like Amazon's Bosch which BTW will have it's new season 6 released on April 17th.

There's no MLB to watch to help me fall asleep so it's Amazon Prime Video.

Tomorrow I'll trim my wife and sons hair and the wife will do mine.My son(22 tomorrow)and at home from university is not completely on board yet!

I ordered a new commuting bike just before we were sent home, so Friday I went out for a “commute”

My normal commute is 18 mi each way, so this one was a little short at just 16 mi out-n-back.

So…we binged “Tiger King” on Netflix

Welcome to BLF 90210 Smile .
Im considered having a essential job, so I went to work today as usually.
I dont know if that’s good or bad but reading some of these post and wonderful pics, makes me jealous.
I love to fish, just dont have much time for it anymore.

Those nice fishing pics kind of remind me of Florida.

Two weeks ago, I did a referb on my wife’s aunts Singer sewing machine made in 1950.
Then have spent time trying and modifying different mask designs.
I go to the office on Sundays and check the phone machine to see how much business I’m missing.

I took the cover off our inground pool and found most of the water is gone . The deep end has water but for the most part it’s not good news.

I should have stayed in the house.

Looking for a lost flashlight became Olde Tyme spring cleaning - move & clean in & under couches, chairs, tables.  Vacuum & scrub upholstery.  Put found dog bones back into their toy box.  Put found spectacles into pocket.  Move things back where they came from.   Looks great!

Still haven't found that light... frown

Some morning shagging after wake up. Than a breakfast. Than shagging again. Than some sleep. And shagged her again. Dinner time, siesta and shagging again. Coffee, cake, rest and more shagging. Supper, nice movie, shagging and bed time. Rinse and repeat.

1. watched the movie: “Tightrope” with Clint Eastwood. although it’s supposed to be a crime drama, it was a comedy to me since his character keeps getting in bed with his pet dogs.
2. reviewed wildlife images from my 6 trail cameras: coyotes, crows, deer, foxes, hawks, opossums, raccoons, skunks, and one wasp that tried to build a nest on the lens.
3. made two cobblers: peach and cherry. the peach disappeared first.

Spent over 2 hours hoovering my bedroom. The floor hasn’t been this clean since I first moved in.

Refinishing kitchen cabinets, started yesterday. Only did top cabinets for now as 2 doors on bottom will need wood putty and basically some body work before they can be redone.

Doesn’t go near as fast as on TV for some reason Smile

Took the Street legal dirt bike for a 20 mile ride as the weather was awesome for PA this time of year (67 degrees, Sunshine)
People were everywhere outside, some sitting on porches, lots walking dogs and kids, saw one volleyball game, saw an older couple burning a fire in a old truck rim.
Came home from that and did a second coat on the backs of the cabinet doors and then took the Antique Mazda pickup out for a short ride with wifepoo.

Police were making presence shown but feel that there is an unwritten agreement, you can go for a ride, just don’t be a dick and give us a reason to pull you over because we don’t want to risk our own health and we realize everyone for the most part are obeying the new rules.
People have to be able to still live their lives during this crisis. Think it is a nice balance with Johnny Law.

Back home, rehang doors and enjoy 3 beers and here I am.
Hope everyone is good.
Later

Not so much a quarantine as a stay home order that is still in effect and I am a little bored. There are things to do around here. The wind blew last night.

So I cut them up. Future firewood, though we probably have enough for next winter already. Or close to it.

No chance of making a few planks with the next one?

There is a certain satisfaction from making timbers and lumber milled from one’s own trees. I have cut timbers using a chain saw mill attachment. That is slow going.

Green logs and timbers are heavy. Even if one has a portable bandsaw mill the log has to be picked up and placed on the sawmill carriage. And those guys have a minimum charge which I completely understand.

I do have a friend with a stationary sawmill; 48” circular blade. He also has a boom truck so can pickup and transport felled tree sections up to 24 feet long. But a few smallish trees is not worth the effort, the diesel and use of the truck and saw.

Then you have to stack, sticker, and protect from weather before being ready to be used in about a year.

Our part of NM was all logged thoroughly decades ago. We have lots of trees, too many in most areas, but not enough that are large enough for efficient use. The larger of the two that fell was about 10” of usable diameter at the base cut and tapered down from that. It was about 55 feet long. It was probably about 80 years old. Not much rainfall here so the pines don’t grow fast.

I have marked a dozen or two trees to cull this summer. None are larger in diameter than these that blew down so even if all we collected at one time the sawmill option is not too attractive to me. There are a few people around here who will receive much appreciated free firewood from us.
