You can order wood on line; the problem is freight is almost $16.00 (ridicules) unless you buy a $100.00 worth of wood. I needed some birch rail mounts and finally found a 1/2" sheet at a art supplies store. A neighboring county just went on lock down yesterday.

Today, working on gas powered outdoor equipment. Three out of four decided not to run this year. Rebuilding a carburetor on one, replacing one on another, the push mower is next. At least the riding mower is running. This year using non ethanol gas; found some at a neighboring town about 15 minutes from here. My car and truck is running on it now.
Hopefully, today I get to work on my conversion from nitro to gas in an old Astro Hog.

PS: I'm also working on an old 5x8 trailer but that has been a slow process. Too many higher priorities.

I'm working from home......but that is hard to do with my job. I'm not complaining, because at least the paycheck is still coming and I don't have to take vacation days to not work and not be allowed to go anywhere.

So what else am I doing.
1. I finally got logged back into FG. I couldn't get the password reset thing to work for the longest time.
2. Cleaning my shop so I can finish 3 projects
a. 100cc PAU Viper. About 90% done
b. TopRC Cougar jet. I cut the nose off to make it removable, need to finish that
c. Not sure of the brand but I got a giant foam P-47. It needs some minor work due to hangar rash
3. Installing gutters on my shop. I got some used ones from my girlfriend mom's house as she got leafless versions. I hung one small section to make sure they will work, now to do the rest

4.....and the most important.......I'm watching Tiger King on Netflix. Make America Exotic Again

I purchased some balsa sheets and other materials from SIG for a project I'm working on and they had a flat $9.95 shipping rate.

I'm still working. Hospitals never close and I have to make sure our EMS fleet is running strong and reliable. My guys and myself have been working long hours to keep up with the increased transports.

Got my WARN papers from my employer last week. Governor issued 2 week stay at home order starting Friday. We make some medical & phone / pc parts so we are deemed as "essential" workers. Kinda hoping for some paid time off due to the WARN benefits. Seven more weeks of work and I will have loads of free time.

+ I believe it was free shipping on orders $150 or more- but the site gives you the shipping cost before you finish the order.
