Progress report X 2

Hey, you ain't dead yet. 35 mile drive to work each day, one mistake and I'm road steak. Live for today, plan for tomorrow, enjoy what you have ever day.

First doc increased my blood pressure and anti cholesterol meds. Will re
cat scan in six months to watch growth. I go to my cardiologist of fifteen
years tomorrow in Vegas to get a second opinion. Got some hard facts that
weren't good, but don't need to go in to here.
To keep busy, we've gotten up almost 60% of a 32' x 13'6" x 10' high steel
canopy. Third full day with two men now. 6 and 8" C channels and Z
purlins. 3 X 3" posts on 12 x 12" x 1/2" plates with four red heads. Posts
.120" 7018'd onto plates. The rest .035" MIG. Some bolts, some angle
reinforcement in corners, will finish decking with self tap sealing screws.
This project has been laying on the ground for six months now. I swore I'd
get it up before I die, and think I might.
Will post pics when it's done.
After that, a few gates, some fence, and a lot of hand cut Indian designs to
mount on the stucco, walls, and posts.
Will post links to Flickr when that's done, too.
Tomorrow, to Vegas for doctors and lawyers for three days, then back to the
cool air of southern Utah.
Time to go fishing just as soon as it starts cooling off, too.

Time to go fishin', YEAH! I've heard that days spent fishin' aren't counted against one's allotment.

Southern Utah. Lakes and streams. Float tube, boat, shore, and stream. Fly and spin cast. Largemouth bass, crappie, and various species of trout. Nice area with numerous lakes and streams within 75 miles. About fifty, I'd say.
With fishing, does it matter? ;-)

I wouldn't care if it was a three for one trade off. It'd be worth it.

There's only two things I'd rather do than metalworking. One of them is fishing.

I prefer "catching" to fishing!

Steve's other favorite activity may offer you higher probability of catching something...

But (I've heard) there's a pitcher and a catcher, as in "Who's on top this time?"
I know. I was just teasing you, anyway. AFAIK, I'm hetero. I heard that I could double my chances of a date on Sattidy night if I swung both ways, though.
