Workshop Wednesday-Just a lot of whining

 Workshop Wednesday, well this last week has been a bit of a bummer. Last week I reported I would be building a new fert spreader/spray rig. After discussing our needs and goals with the boss it was decided that we would just buy a new one. Sure, new equipment is cool but so is building one from scratch.
 In other workshop related news I have been fixing a lot of fork lifts lately. Fork lifts are a pain in the ass to work on. There's a lot of crap stuffed in a small space and they are low to the ground dirt magnets.

 I had to dig a couple of graves last week. Its easy enough work but it always gets me thinking about how many years I may or may not have left.

 Then two days ago I got some kind of bug that completely liquefied the contents of my intestines. I made it just over halfway to work before it was decided going to work was a bad idea. I continued on only because that bathroom was closer than turning around and heading home. I arrived at the shop, took care of business and headed back home where I spent the day in bed and the bathroom. I can't remember the last time I took a sick day from work.
 It was a one day thing. Yesterday I picked up a bucket of chicken and all the fixins. No problems.
 On top of all that, the day I was sick was my wifes birthday. She didn't get the special treatment that she deserves. I'll have to come up with something special to make it up to her.
 I'm done whining.


  1. glad your illness was only one day ! You have so much talent and ingenuity and are fortunate enough to have means to exercise your talent. Perhaps your boss weighed out time to build against billable hours on necessities at this time.You will always have kick butt projects because thats the way your made. So stop whinning and go for the next pleasure.Enjoying your posts

  2. Your exactly right about the time and billable hours. Spring always seems to sneak up on us.
