New Hats For Linda and A Trip To Home Depot

DeBary, FL.

50 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy skies this morning will become overcast during the afternoon. High 69F. Winds WNW at 5 to 10 mph.

Not a real lot happening around here. Linda's doing fine but she has almost no energy. Jim did take her over to the American Cancer Society in Orange City the other day so she could look at some of the hats and head coverings that they have. She found 3 hats that she liked and brought them home.

Since they were just laying on the couch, I though I'd try them on to see what they looked like on me. :-)

I think Linda likes this one the best, but it sure didn't fit me!!! ;-) 

Yesterday, Jim got on the Internet and was researching some tools and a small storage cabinet/shed to put in the enclosed area out by the storage shed/workshop. Well, he found what he was interested in at Home Depot, so in the afternoon, he and Linda took CLT and headed over there. Linda waited in CLT while Jim went inside. After a little while he came out with a cart with a large box on it and a smaller box sitting on top of the large one.

The large box contained the storage shed he was looking for and the small one a 7 1/4 inch circular saw.

It was about 3:00 when they returned back here to the house, so Jim decided that he'd see if he could get the shed assembled before dinner. Well, he did it, even though they recommend 2 people for some of the steps. By the time Linda had dinner prepared, (about 5:30), it was finished and sitting in it's spot up against the storage shed/shop wall, next to the entry door.

He plans to use this storage cabinet to store things like a shovel, rake, sprayer, telescoping ladder, and other miscellaneous outdoor tools and supplies. You see, by putting those items in there, it will free up more space inside of the shop so that he can do some small projects in there this winter.

He's also planning on building or buying a cabinet/bench inside of the shop that will be able to hold some more power tools that he will need for those projects.

Did you know that on this date in 1892 - "Triangle" magazine in Springfield, MA, published the rules for a brand new game? The original rules involved attaching a peach baskets to a suspended board. It is now known as basketball.
