Default Ken's Sawdust Saturday

Ken was driving me absolutely bonkers; he can NOT sit idle, and the fact that he's been forced to for the past six plus weeks has been nothing short of a living nightmare so this morning we took all the 2x4's we recently pulled out of the attic (and placed beside the house), found two projects and mashed the plans together to come up with a bench for him to build. Unfortunately, we were two 2x4's short to complete it (the planter needs to be built up higher), and I had to rob the piggy bank to pay bills this week, so it will have to wait to get finished. ANYWAY... It did him good, and he gave his wrist a real workout. My job? I was babysitter and foreman, for the most part. I did the hauling of supplies, sanding of the 2x4's, and whatever else he wasn't able to do. Tomorrow I'll be sanding down the entire thing to get it smooth and a little more sitable. We plan on getting a cushion for it. No backing because it will be goin against the deck railing when we finally get to redo the deck.

Would post pictures, but the server is telling me that the png file isn't a valid picture file, so I'll post when the server will let me.

Better or worse, that's the deal. As to the picture, download Irfanview. It is a FREE and excellent picture editing program. When you install it, Irfanview will associate png files with it and you can open the file, then Save As, and select the jpg format from the list. Hit save and voila, a jpg picture the site likes. Not a penny out of pocket and a truly great program. Search Download Irfanview. or use this link to get on their site. Download IrfanView

As to nursing us guys along, it seems to happen a fair amount to the old guys on this site. My wife backed me up through cancer and then a heart attack. I had to agree to stop that kind of thing or she'd trade my table saw for a new painting kit.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

No doin, Tom. It's been a problem to everyone, according to a thread on here (Something Wrong?) I'm not gonna d/l a program to upload. Tried to upload from my phone with the app, and got the same problem, so its RF.

As for nursing, I'm good with it. I tease him and tell him he's cashed in all the nursing I owed him from my past illnesses/surgeries/injuries in one fell swoop with this one. he did it up big. He's healing exceptionally well. He & I both tell everyone he's got help coming from "Upstairs."

about the table saw... too funny!!!!

Glad Ken is getting around again, his foot must be coming along good? Nothing like a little woodwork to take your mind off of things.

Ken is doing AMAZING, Herb. He says there's no pain, and it feels so good, he feels like he could walk on it. I told him if he puts one ounce of body weight on that foot before the dr says so, I'll beat the living tar out of him, and I remind him of his promise to me the problem with Ken is he can't sit around. He wants so bad to get back to work, and in turn, driving me insane. I HAD to find something he could make or do, before I went crazy. Kept him busy till almost 8 o'clock

Hadn't noticed the thing about the pictures. But Irfanview is a neat photo editing program I use as my default picture viewer, and it allows cropping and many other kinds of handling. It's free and it's not Micro$oft. I'm a little like Ken in that I like to keep busy. Can't take a walk around the yard without doing a little weeding, for example, and there's plenty of that to do. Nothing like shop time though. Just finishing up my first serious picture frame for my honey and a little impatient for it to dry between coats.

You will have to post some pictures when they get the picture posting bug fixed.

Barb, first if Ken is driving you crazy in the way you describe that is a good sign; it means he has not given up. While I was recovering from my injuries I know I was driving my then-wife crazy wanting to push what she thought were limits on what I could do. I love it that you made a project for him.

According to web page for my computer .png is one of the acceptable file formats, along with .bmp, .doc, .gif, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg, .pdf, .psd, .skp, .txt and .zip
I do know Cricket has people looking into some issue with images.

Yeah, I know .png is acceptable. But no matter the file extension, you get the error that it's not. I'm just gonna wait till its fixed and post then.
