Default What other projects are you working on? 2022 Edition

What else are you guys working on lately? Lots of us have trucks that are running and doing fine enough that we don't have work on them every day. What's taking up your spare time?

For me, I've been buying a house. Believe it or not the Powder Puff is going to COLLEGE soon and we're looking to get a place close to where she's going to help her live on the cheap. We looked for about 8 months before we found a nice 3 bedroom 2 bath in a very comfy little neighborhood that was built in the 20-teens. Sidewalks everywhere, dog park, and lots of families like ours.

It should be perfect for the four years we'll be living there while she goes to school. We've almost got it nailed down. Once the keys are in hand I've got all summer to be doing repairs and planting some dadgum trees so it looks more like home.

Some people are like slinkys. Not worth much but funny as heck when pushed down stairs.

Would your new house happen to be in Manhattan, Fetch?

A little further away, but nice catch Ed. It's in Baldwin City. We're hardcore Christians so we wanted her to go to a college that wouldn't try to make her a flaming liberal and undo 18 years of hard work.

So what did you fill your Saturday with now that it's over?

I'm hip deep into a 75-year-old antique ship model restoration for a client, which takes drive time away

I am still plugging away on my 1968 Dodge Charger build. I am so glad I bought 99% of the parts I need prior to COVID, logistics issues, inflation, etc. Parts prices have shot up to crazy high numbers.

Looks like you're a lot closer to KU in Lawrence than to K-State (my alma mater) in Manhattan then. Our granddaughter who's about Powder Puff's age has one more year of high school left. Her Dad took her to look at colleges during her spring break.

When you're retired, you just do the same boring stuff every day. So my Saturday was the usual -- working around the house, yard, and garage. Plus going for a long walk.

You may think it's boring stuff but 99% of 25 year old guys today wouldn't know how to do most of it. I tell you some of the next generation is in for a world of hurt when they start owning houses and cars that aren't brand new.

Today I pulled seven eggs from my six chickens. Someone's been doubling up lately. Powder Puff and I went for a drive too. Just cruising around the town and thinking about how we won't be doing it for a while.
