Where are we today ?
Clic on the pic to enlarge itWe had some big rain overnight just over 1/2 an inch, not much but better than none but will help the farmers. This morning overcast and not so warm. Comfortable and maybe got to 90 F but had a nice breeze and overcast skies. Not really warm enough for us to get in the pool, guess the pool will be lonely today.
The plan "A" first thing was to take the car top Pettigrew's Garage in town and I was there. The lot was full of cars that needed immediate attention. Ours not so, I told Dale I can come back another day, not a big deal we here until next Wednesday. Him and Mike will be very busy for the next day or two.
So because of the cooler weather and I had the car, plan "B" came into play. I have had a project that I wanted to do. Make a folding foot rest that our friend "Pat" at Galvin Bay has had for a few years. We always liked it. So last time we were there I took a few pics, made some measurements and drew up a plan. I said hey, I can make that.
Thats what I set out to do. Picked up the dowels at Home Hardware I figured I needed and after an early lunch headed over to Suzie's brother's where her Dad has his workshop set up , I have used it before and has most of the wood working tools I need.

What the heck lets give it a whirl. Just taking my time a few hours later I had everything cut and pieced together. Think I have it, looks pretty close.

Enough puttering for today, time to relax for a while with a cold beer, read for a bit, then whip up supper. On the menu tonight is Pan Fried Basa fillets in our favorite Roasted Garlic and Butter Fish Crisp.
