Great look, @scooter.  after you posted your last shots you had the look of a man on the o/t train. Glad you got through the summer.
Good tune. I wait, I wait, I wait..
Thanks, Ed. Yes, the OT was rolling for 3 months. Thankfully, it's a thing of the past, now. I'm hoping to work 40s until January, and maybe get a few weeks off in the new year. Work will have to slow a tad for that to happen, though. Fingers crossed.

Quick update..... I haven't done much since Wednesday. Even though I'm back to a standard work week, I'm feeling a bit burned out from the long summer. I've been coming home and shutting down. Yesterday was chore day, and today I managed to get out and take care of some errands. A gloomy day it was. So, the Mad Red served as a bit of contrast.....


One of today's errands was to go to Walgreen's, and get a flu shot. The pharmacy was a bit busy, and I was told to have a seat, while they handled those ahead of me. While sitting there, only one song came to mind.....

About a dozen years ago, I decided I needed a career change. I pursued an apprenticeship in a skilled trade, and was given the opportunity. While, the future pay and benefits were going to be well worth it, as an apprentice they don't start out that way. Early on, money was very tight, and I needed to supplement my income. So, I took a part time job. Now, I realistically don't need the job, anymore. But, I'm only doing 1 short shift a week, on Tuesday nights, and when work at the day job gets slow, I pick up a few extra shifts to keep me busy. Moreover, the extra cash pays for my car's insurance and maintenance, and I figure I can spring for 3 extra IH pieces a year.

Before anyone gets the urge to ask the question, the answer is... Yes, I am freaky fast.....


Today's mood.....

Diggin’ the classic combo of white tee, denim, & boots with that poppin’ red leather  8)
Thanks, Rox. Although, to me, it's more "normal" than "classic". I've lived my entire life in the Milwaukee area. It's a blue collar town. It's also the home of Harley-Davidson. Jeans, tees, leather jackets, and black boots are thoroughly engrained in the culture. If I wear anything else with it, other than possibly a black tee, or waffle crew, it's likely forced.  :D

Sundays are always a mixed bag. When the daughter is here, we hang out until it's time to go back to her mamusia's. This time of year, football serves as ambient background noise, and laundry rules the day. Anything to keep my mind off of the work week to come is always welcome.

Today did wind up a tad different, though. Recently, I finally got around to picking up some supplies for a hobby I've been wanting to try my hand at.....


I've got a pair of 21 oz Busters I use for work. The beginning of a blowout was giving me cause for concern.....


Patched the inside, first.....


Then, worked on a cover.....


It's not the prettiest work ever, but it feels as though it'll be effective. All in all, I'm happy with my first go at it. I've got a couple more pairs to work on. Hopefully I'll get better with my control. I used my fingers as pin cushion a few times.

Today's mood.....

Lovely sentiment, @Chap . While, I had not planned on a trip, this year, I have been giving serious consideration to 2021. Whether there's a formal reason for it, or not, I'm going to do everything in my power to make it there.

Are people still staying away from eateries round your way? Despite mask laws etc?
There really are no laws. We get periodic orders from the Guvna, which are constantly being challenged, because of their constitutionality. There are local municipality orders, as well. Those are generally followed, because they can actually be enforced. My state is one of the current "hot spots". So, yes, more people are shying away now, more than ever.

Thanks for all of the kind words, gents. My biggest mistake was not buying it when I had the chance...

Well, look what I have here.....


About 3 years ago, I started a tradition with my daughter. Every other Friday, when she is here, we have daddy/daughter pizza date night.....


In the days of COVID, dining in can have it's perks. I think I'll sit here. No, here.....


Oh. Who am I kidding, she sits in the same spot, every time.....




A little mood music for the day. With the arrival of the MRMFer, this one seemed appropriate.....
