Tuesday, April 4
Work day begins: 6:30 AM Checking e-mail and getting the daily stuff started. It’s chilly this morning, may have to build a fire to knock the chill out of the shop. We also have some special activities today that will interrupt the normal flow of the day today. I’ll have to run into Newport for a short time this morning, then go back again this evening for a couple of longer meetings. That will mean a shorter than normal day in the workshop. Lunch Time Spent most of the morning on errands and odd jobs that popped up. Seems odd jobs breed odd jobs. Workshop closes:400 PMI got all the screw hole plugs trimmed off, and the twelve laminated parts band sawed to rough shape and surface planed to 2 ½” thick. Now it’s time to sponge out the truck cab (Zadie lost her breakfast in there this morning), get cleaned up, and head back into Newport. It will be a long evening, and tomorrow I’m in Treasures again as shopkeeper. Thursday I should be able to put in a regular day. Man Hours Billed: 2.5 Materials Billed: None.
