Wuz gonna post ”Buy a replacement cask”... Unfortutanely I have no empties… Discovered the secret… progressively take a glass out of each one and they never empty… all you need is a large starting cache and a large cellar!

Oh, I would need a much bigger white board! I moved in May 31, so have a lot to do before mid Nov. If anyone nearby is bored… come on over!
The first 21 need doing in next 45 days before snow starts.
1. Scrape/ stain /paint exterior trim.
2. Put 2nd cordwood rack together.
3. Move 2nd of 2 cord of wood dumped on grass, then clean up grass from mess of wood chips & gravel.
4. Add bracket to house to pull fence gate post into position.
5. Finish install of inside railing to 2nd floor.

6. Clear more small trees from my wooded acre of land for more sun & less mosquitos next summer.
7. Install lamp post for solar lights near driveway.
8. Install storm door.
9. Figure out a method to get my SUV in garage that is 2” too short (+ length of trailer hitch).

12. Move 12 or so outdoor plants.

15. Mow 1 more time after leaves are down.
16. Add a rain diverter to my roof where addition meets house so siding doesn’t take brunt of water every time it rains.
17. Hire someone or put gutters along front N side of house.

Hey Momzi’, it’d be easier to keep a tiny board and write so small you can’t read it… and then blame it on Uncle Alzhi...
ALternatively, SWMBOs always claim to be multi-taskers… need I say more?

Tasks that stop a man from drinking are called CHORES!

PS. Priority #1… learn to post upright pictures.

Yah I’m not in any hurry to get it finished. I look at it like, “If its taken me these past three years to do what I’ve done so far correctly, I rather spend three more and get an instrument that’s playable!”

In short, everything. LOL. I have been so far behind this year it’s not funny. Hopefully I’ll catch up this winter.
