I had unexpected company last night. Mt sister from Medicine Hat Alberta showed up on my doorstep. It sure was nice to see her. Sitting and chatting I broke a record for my bedtime. I'm usually in bed by 9:00pm but last night I was up when the Queen arrived home near midnight. After a goodnight kiss I went to bed but the ladies stayed up and chatted till 2:oo am the Queen told me this morning.
I got the rotary tool box completed yesterday and looking at it I think I went into overkill mode. :) There's allot more places for bits and other accessories than I have but it made good use of an empty toolbox and will be handier than the cardboard box I had stored everything stored in before.
I also got out to the front step and snapped a photo of the girl's playhouse and got Abbey out for her daily walk on the gopher trails. I'd say I had a busy day.
BTW with all that I had going on I never did get a chance to chase young ladies on the street, maybe today!
The next project on my list is to make a combination toothbrush razor holder for my new washroom. I could go and buy one ready made but that would take the fun out of it and I couldn't say I did it.
One of these days I'll tackle an old clock movement I have just to see if I can get it running.
Never give up!

Wow, you live next door to a budding architect or engineer. That is really neat how the kids mind works.
Glad you had a good visit and the Queen got to stay up late and have fun too.

Good Morning Tony,

The next door youngster is very imaginative and that is wonderful.

Breaking ones routine every so often is a good thing. lol Especially with good company.

I certainly admire your stick to it with your projects.

It is cool and partially cloudy here today. Another visit to the chiropractor is in store for me today so best get moving.

Have a good day.

Good morning Tony. Like the picture of your neighbour's little one's idea for a house. She has good plans there and has each room set out. A budding designer...

Another nice day in store for us so will try to get up to the corner store to get a 649 ticket for tonite and a can of all purpose RAID. Have some unwanted bugs coming in, I hate spiders...LOL

Have fun with your new project. Clock works may be more difficult to work on as it takes more intricate work and good eyesight. Good luck anyway with it.

Have a great day dear one. Enjoy your company.
