It's just a phase

Wow, how long has it been since I've sat at this computer to share my thought with my people. One my closest friends and regular readers, has been trying to coerce me into writing again. I've been so busy with work and life that I haven't been able to find any inspiration to write about anything worth reading. This may even turn out to be a waste of time. I hover will try my best to give you something to think about or even a slight chuckle.

Buddy goes to Brooklyn

Normally I'm not the kind of person that will pack up the car and hit the road on the weekends. As a matter of fact, I'm not the kind of person to even take the weekends off. A while back I promised myself that if and when I had a Saturday or Sunday off, I would hit up yard sales and flea markets in the area. Considering I had both weekend days off I decided to do something a little different.

The finished product

I finally completed my first restoration projects. I did a Little Learner's cash register from the 50's that I found at a thrift store. When I got it the red paine was faded to pink. It was covered in old stickers. Some of the arms to the keys were bent. The drawer could not open. I took it apart, strainted up all the keys. I polished the buttons. It took 3 days, but I managed to strip all the paint and rust inside and out. I primed and painted it in the original red color. All I need to do now is replace the plastic window which was badly scratched. If interested, make me an offer.

What's new?

There is so much stuff going on right now that it's impeding my writing. I'm trying my hand at so many different things, but as usual, I can't settle on one. The summer is finally here so I'm trying to make the best of it. Grilling as much as I can. Spending a lot of time outside. I want to go in several different directions but would like to focus on one or on all, not sure.
