A battery a day....

Well we have had some battery issues lately. Yesterday the battery in the Durango went out as we were leaving to go to thanksgiving dinner. Thankfully Junebug call just as it happened, so he was able to give us a ride.
Tuen today the battery qent out on the Mule... So we had to charge the Durango battery to get to Bg. When we got there I was amazed at how many people were still shoping for Black Friday deals, but then again this was the first time I have ever been to town on Black Friday. Let me ask one question... Why, I REPEAT, why would anyone whant to shop in such chaos???? I know I wouldn't.

More work on the shop

I just finished working on the shop. I worked on the last work bench for the shop, I didn't finish it, but I got a got a good start on it.
Also I worked on the forge. I had to do some grinding on the forge so that my forge hood (that I haven' built yet) will fit in it.

That is what Dad said today when we finished putting siding on the front of the barn today, and I gues that is true. Then again we could have said that 3 months ago!!!!LOL

Creek View Blacksmith Shop

Well I have to admit that I am not the most "Loyal" blogger out there, but at time's I can force myself to sit down and have a small battle with this crazy computer. Not to mention how busy I am working on the barn and blacksmith shop!!!
Here are some photo's of how the blacksmith shop is coming. Right now I am building some work benches. I love having a shop to build stuff in, because with the lights I can work after it is dark. Dad and I stayed up there until 7:00 the other night, I wanted to keep working but Dad was getting so cold that his hands were going numb... I didn't think that is was THAT cold... I wasn't even wearing a sweat shirt.... It was only 38 out side.
The next project on the shop will be building a side draft hood for my forge.... I have NO idea how that is going to turn out.

So here are some photo's of the shop in it current state of disaster.... LOL

This was the hardest bench to build, because we had to build around that post.
I am starting to get some tools out!!!

Here is the bench that I was working on yesterday and last night.

Well that's all I have to show right now, when I get more done I will try (key word there "try.. LOL) to post some more photo's.
