AWESOME Rocket! Sounds like you had a blast! ( pun intended )

If I typed in 'setback' 28 times in a row it still wouldn't be enough. Still working on the same guitar build. I have to re scale all the templets. The good news is it's all on paper. So I'm not wasting wood. Well not wasting any more wood is a better way of putting it. Chalk it up to beginner mistakes. I've only made two other guitars. The first was a complete disaster. The second had some major mistakes.  Learned wile I fixed and worked around them. It's now my got to and favorite sounding guitar. Honestly I wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't fun.

Doing laundry, and binge watching disenchantment on Netflix.

I work full-time now, but I still get to enjoy some of the night.

Getting ready to go scrounging for accoutrements and random items at a local gun/knife show tomorrow.

Tweaking out a police uniform costume for my orange Fox partial suit in preparation for an upcoming parade. The theme is Disney this year, so we anticipate a boat load of princesses. A grandkid of one of the staff will roleplay Judy Hopps.

And the ultimate of all setbacks. The file that I had all my full sized guitar bodies on a 3x3 grid pattern got deleted..... For a short time. All I had to do was go to the program and reopen it. It did a file recovery and I have 100% of all those hours of work back.

But I did get tired of all the setbacks so I made a square box guitar body. I have the body complete and the neck attached. Lined up the bridge. Now I'll need to do a lot of fret and neck work. I bought the cheapest guitar neck i could find. Knowing I would have to do this. This will let me practice the skills I'll need when setting up mine and other's guitars. I'll start with a complete guitar nut filing. Then a complete fret leveling, recrowning and end filing. Truss rod adjustment and match the bridge to the fretboard radios. Already know how to play with the truss rod and bridge. Fretwork is what I need practice on. Once everything is done I 'll take the bridge and neck back off. Then paint up the body in the style of a 1960's transistor radio.

Continuing Kimba's training for the "touch" command.
She's doing very well with it.

Changed my license plate bulbs this morning.  Easy to do. The hard part was paying $7+ for two little plug in bulbs.

Got pulled over last night. Because my license plat wasn't lit. Cop took my drivers license and did a check. Came back and said these exact words. "WOW. Your squeaky clean." I thought, but didn't say out loud. 'wow, you sound disappointed.'  :D The entire experience was fun. There is a real good chance I'll run into him the next time I need gas after work. All the cops in town hang at the same gas station.

Re-arranged my computers and finally I can vacuum underneath the computer table for the first time in 10 years...
Yeah, it is true there are parts of the carpet that haven't been touched since I set the desk there.  Not proud of that.
but now its okay.

Got the framework and legs up for my new 72 x 38 work bench. Now all I need to do is get the supports and shelving done. The last will be a bench clamp and dogs. Be spending a lot of time in the garage getting things moved around.

Just been racing around the garden with the dog. She's full of energy today and had a good zoom about, bouncing into all the raised beds, racing up and down, while I chased her.

Our garden is on a slope and I have bad knees, so I'm already ready to call it a day. She'll want to play again in about ten minutes so I'm sat on the garden bench with a coffee, my laptop, and a copy of 'Salem's Lot to wait until she wants me to throw a ball for her.

Just did part of my Xmas shopping. Normally, I'd head out to brick and mortar stores as I'd rather give them the business instead of buying online. But since my mom mostly wanted books and movies for Xmas, I had to shop online at Amazon instead of Barnes & Noble since I haven't renewed my B&N membership in quite a while. B&N prices are quite expensive if you don't have a membership.

Waiting, still waiting, for the pharmacy to fill some meds for my dog.  Its like an eternity when it takes 5 days to get anything done.  Why is it so hard to fill 30 Amoxicillin ?
In the mean time, my dog is just getting worse.

Still decorating for Christmas.  The main tree is finally done. Most of the collections are displayed. Still have the village to put up.  And my fake feather tree.  Because I broke a toe I wasn't able to go and down a latter. So all the window and crown molding ( I don't have crown molding. It's just the best way to describe where the garland would go ) evergreen garland will have to wait till next year.

Trying to decide if I want to go to a holiday dinner with my tail or do I wear a furry pride shirt that they would have NO CLUE on what it meant!

Bought a tactical flashlight from Harbor Freight as a gift for myself and a few collapsible LED lanterns as gifts. Swapped the batteries out on the lanterns before gifting. Though a bit pricey, the flashlight is quite bright and has several functions.
