What's your summerfun

PostBy: Scottscoaled On: Fri Apr 18, 2008 11:31 pm

So now that coal burning season is winding down, what's a body to do? Me personally, try to get in as much fishing as work allows. And big holiday bonfires. :) Scott

I enjoy bike riding (the kind you peddle). Brings back memories of my youth & make me feel young again, its good exercise & with the price of gas its a win win. :D Lincoln Woods is a park in northern RI & it's a great place to ride.

Yes, I use to go blue crabbing (sweetest meat you'll ever taste) but they aren't as abundant in RI. I enjoyed claming, quahoging, lobstering, eeling you name it. We use to go lobstering off of the rocks in Point Judith using mackerel on a tar line as bait & a net, great fun.

Between my lawnmower repair business and cutting grass, Summer is pretty much playtime for me. I live on the side of the mountain with a 50 mile view in 3 directions, so I love cutting grass on the Deere in the late afternoon when the sun is a hazy ball of orange and you can cut the humidity with a knife.

I still have to make a small wood fire each day for domestic hot water.

Always some project I like to do around the house. Just put in cherry hardwood floors & I'll be widening our back deck by about 6' over the summer. (Bought myself a new pneumatic framing nail gun this winter so I'll get to play with it

Working on/around our old house, this summer will be the front porch, replacing the decking, railing, spindles, and stripping paint (yeh :( ), it's gotta be done.!

Finally got part of my workshop finished in the garage, I have a work table that's 2' x 24' along one side of the garage, got that one wall all wired, insulated, flakeboard and painted. It looks really good. I used some 1.25" thick laminated computer desk tops and framed it under with 2"x4", attached to the wall and the legs, angled to the first coarse of block, so theres no legs protruding down onto the floor (For easy cleaning!). The table tops are really heavy duty and the price was right (FREE!).

Will be going to a couple of cars shows with the mustangs...

This year it will be putting up a chimney and installing a new boiler. Hopefully I'll get a couple of days to go to the drag races to watch my cousin. Will definitely take one weekend to go with my son to the Super Chevy show at Maple Grove.
