I wasn't sure if this fit better here under Lines and Knots or should go into the Ohana section.  Sunday is Chore day around the homestead, and in my household SWMBO makes the list (and for those of you who do not know me, SWMBO is shorthand for "She Who Must Be Obeyed"  Wink  Anyhow, had some of my working around the house shorts that were fine other than suffering from too much button stress.  For those of you out there that would say "Brewcrafter, you need to ease up on the beer and vittles and drop a few inches off the waist" you would most likely be correct.  But what to do when one loses a button on their otherwise good shorts?  Hmmm, I've got some Izorline Green Spot in the garage...

Now, should I ever have the honor of actually meeting or fishing with anyone on this site, I know how guys can geek out on fishing knots with "120% knot strength"  Cheesy and I wouldn't want anybody stressing on "What the heck is holding up Brewcrafter's pants?  RP Knot?  Palomar?  Double Uni?  or OMG a Bimini Twist?"  Truth of the matter is a surgeons knot with a few half hitches for good measure.  I hope everyone had a great weekend and thanks for all the great posts!

Picked about 8 lbs of jalapeńo peppers and 4 pounds of Serrano peppers.  Went to the store and picked up carrots and onions and garlic.  Way to tiring so took a nap.  Woke up and notified one of my granddaughters who is indebted to me for canning duty that tomorrow afternoon we will be putting up a couple dozen or so 1/2 pint jars of pickled peppers Mexican style. 
  Then I went out to my mess of a garage and packed my cleaned and dried trolling bags in there storage bag ready for my next Halibut trip.
Rough day I need another nap.

Sue and I drove an hour to Fresno, picked up a church member who cannot drive, Sue attended church, I taught Sunday School to my High School class, had brunch at Plaza Ventana, dropped Mary back at her apartment, picked up a 6 Ton bearing press at Harbor Freight, got a haircut/trim, went to Trader Joe’s, Starbuck’s, got gas, came back home, assembled the press.

Press is a benchtop, weighs 52 pounds.  $58 + tax with a 25% off coupon.  Will adapt a chuck tomorrow to hold a pin punch.

Easy day, probably watch a movie on Amazon or Netflix tonight.

Starting to install a dust collection system to each stationary power tool in the outer shops tomorrow — table saw, jointer, band saw, 3 belt and disc sanders, miter saw, shaper, router table, dovetail jigs, lathe, drill press, mini belt sander.  Already have a Powermatic dust collector in place and remotely wired upstairs — just need to figure out the most efficient ducting and airblock doors.

Then will install air hose bibs in 4 locations for air tools throughout the downstairs shops, along with a condensation trap.  This compressor is also located upstairs, wired remotely, and ready to connect the lines up.

This will likely take a couple of weeks in between mostly working on reels.

It is actually relaxing work for me.

I am sure we all had different types of Sunday’s today.

Best,

Fred

Before first light — with nothing less than wonder, and humility — I scan the cool, dark waters for the coming horizon — and the hope of what that deep unknowing might hold for me today...

——————————————————

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...
