    Morning All,

    Wrapped up a small repair project y'day. Amazing I survived. The thermometer at the marina said 102F. WTF did I get transported to flippin' Mississippi? Sweat was rolling off of me. Couldn't keep it out of my work. By 4:30 I was as wet as if someone had hosed me down. I'm not used to this chit. All done, though, and it looks good. And temps are supposed to drop 10 - 15 degrees today. Jeebus... I'd HOPE so. This is Oregon... not the Mekong delta. Gripe, grumble, whine, whimper.

    Today I get to go play in the shop. Might go get my little fg pulling boat, and start nibbling away at the restoration, too. Tomorrow an open house at some friends house down on Arnold Creek. My kids grew up playing on their property, and they're about to double the size of their little cabin.

    Hope everyone is well, and good.

    More rain, thunder, lightning, hail, high winds, downed trees and power outages.
    All that and road construction too.
    I can't wait until it snows.

    A creaky good morning to all.

    I'll make up some coffee. I'm having mine iced, after another danged 'toohot' day yesterday. Was mildly productive, though. And the big score was the exact oscillating spindle sander I was looking for - used only a few times - for a real bargain price. And a very nice Milwaukee router (sans baseplate... which I have spares of) with a very expensive panel-raising bit still in the collet... for $50. Score!!

    Hope everyone has a good day. Office work for me in the morning, then that open house in the afternoon.

    could you be more specific?

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Indeed. Here you go. A Good Rigid Tool is always worth posting fotos of. This one is compact. The table folds. It's cheap. It oscillates. As an edge sander... it's minimalist. Essentially a 4 X 24 belt sander on its side. But the belt sander guts can be yanked, and various diameters of spindle plugged in. I bought one years ago... thinking it would be a 'starter' tool as I scoped out larger spindle sanders. Turns out the only drawback is that it's a tad under-powered. It'll bog down if you lean on it at all. But that's actually no big deal. Leaning on the work will likely burn it anyway... so it's just a bit of feedback when you're getting too aggressive. But in the move, the old one got dropped, and bent the drive shaft. Totaled. It makes a perfect adjunct to our larger, Ritter, edge sander (see lower foto).

    I figured you had a larger model as well. I recently turned down an 8 x 48 oscillating belt sander in good repair from Rockwell for fifty bucks at auction. Sadly it ended up going for scrap, crazy. I just don't have the room for it. It even came with two cases of belts worth hundreds in their own right. . .

    The temperature was only in the high eighties in Clarksdale Friday, but humidity was about the same. Heather's hair looked almost like she had been swimming by the end of her set.

    The gospel part of the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival will be this afternoon in the Clarksdale Civic Auditorium. This is the 29th annual festival. It is a free festival paid for by donations. The spectators are about 50/50 black and white, everyone gets along and treats each other with respect. I have never seen any kind of trouble at these festivals. There was a pretty large group of photographers from Italy and people from Australia and Japan that I know of.

    Kenny Brown followed Jimmy Holmes. I got a chance to talk to Kenny and his wife Sara. Also bought two more of Kenny's CDs from him.

    Fun party I went to. Saw some folks I hadn't seen in years. Good light food. I'm really tickled that I built the cabinets for that tiny house (620 square feet) when it was built back in the early 80's... and now that want me to build the cabinets, bookshelves, etc. (he has over 10k CD's) for the new version (about 1300 s.f.).

    10k CDs,mmm. I picked up three more Saturday, but will never get close to that. I got one from Jimmy Holmes, and two more from Kenny Brown. Jimmy Holmes threw in a bonus t-shirt, a deal.

    He's been a dj for many years. I think one serious chunk of his collection comes from when stations clear out CD's. He snags 'em.

    I might stand a chance of besting him on Mississippi blues musicians. But I'm still lacking a bunch of them.

    I just found out about this show in April. Some people, BB King was one of them, believe that the blues started on Dockery Farms.

    I know his collection a bit, and you most certainly would. Even though his biggest area of concentration is folk. Followed by rock, then blues.

    Time to make the coffee.

    Brought home a few leftover brownies from the party y'day. Help yourself.

    Yes... but all that indulgence in 'grass'... did YOU get high? Or was that the petroleum effect? <G>

    At least you have grass to cut Jimmy.
    Even after all the rain we've had the last few days, the grass is brown and lifeless.
