The shop is Empty!!! :mecry::mecry::mecry: And I'm bored already! :wallbanging:

The snowblower is done, won't paint the 314 until after snow season. Not ready to start on my next tractor project (need to find a Snapper RER chassis).

Probably have to do some woodworking projects to hold me over for a while. I do need to make one Oak tree ornament (an annual thing). Then maybe some bird boxes; wren, bluebird & duck.

Oh well, I guess I'll find something to do! Chief needs some attention! ~~ grnspot

Got a RF 110 or 120 you can play with. If you feel really adventurous I have a 1968 Fury that needs a rear fender and trunk floor replaced...

I can't remember what my shop looks like when it's empty! Even when it gets that way, it doesn't seem to stay that way very long LOL!

I have both halves of a Snapper RER. I needed a front section for mine, so I bought a parts mower.

Got the ornament cut out this morning, doesn't take long. Biggest problem is coming up with a new design every year! I gave the wife a set of nine Oak ornaments before we were married, then a new one every year since. Trying to come up with one I haven't done before is in the last 30+ years is tough!

Put together a couple of duck boxes today too;

HPIM2254 (Small).JPG

They'll get painted on the outside since they're pine (availability). I've got an Oak tree picked out for one that I girdled this Fall, not sure yet where I'll put the other one, maybe in the pond, if there's enough ice this Winter!

As for the Snapper,we have a guy about 10 miles away that parts them out, just haven't talked to him yet. ~~ grnspot

Nice dog you have there. We had one like that. She had 10 puppies. Puppies are born white and get spots later. We had spots running everywhere. My wife wanted to keep all of them.

Thanks! 'Cept, he don't know nuthin' 'bout no dawg! :D He's just a big baby, laying beside me right now. He's our third Dal, I'd have trouble getting used to any other breed now! ~~ grnspot

Put up one of the duck boxes today, along with a Bluebird box;

HPIM0607 (Small).jpg

The tree with the box is about 30 yards from the pond. I'll wait until the pond is iced over & put the other box on a post in the pond. I cleared an area of brush to make the pile for the wildlife, some of it will be allowed to grow back to underbrush.

My wood pile for next year is just about finished;

Well, I picked up a couple of new Winter projects today:

HPIM2267 - Copy.JPG

I had posted a wanted ad on CL wanting a JD 60, 70 or 100 & within a couple of hours I had 4 possibilities! This one was the best deal & I already knew the seller, a pair of 70's, or , at least a 70 & 1/2! Engine is stuck on the complete one, but otherwise all there. I'll need to find a hood & gas tank for the other one as it's going to be my "Winter project" for this year. ~~ grnspot

I have a 12-1/2 HP Briggs for the incomplete one, will be starting a new thread on the JD "70I" when I get started on the project! Hopefully, within a week or two! ~~ Lowell
