Yes, but the wings were tucked away where I couldn't see them.

I'm enjoying some Balderson's 2 year old cheddar. One of the best cheeses around. I had to take lactaid, and will probably get a headache or migraine, but it is sure worth it!

I'm waiting for Stirling to finish his coffee and wake up enough to do stuff. I am going to drive him to a walk-in clinic.

Last night he coughed. He heard a popping noise. He felt a horrible, stabbing pain in his side. It's worse if he coughs. It's still there this morning.

I had him talk to a nurse at Info-Santé (provincial health info service). She said it could be a number of things. He should get to a clinic or the hospital soon, but it's not an emergency. She told him signs to look for that would mean it was an emergency. If those happen, call 911 or if he's at the hospital tell a doctor right away.

So, when coffee is finished, we'll see if Stirling needs help getting dressed and then it's off to the clinic, the one across the street from the hospital. It's not the closest clinic, but the one I like.

I'm just sitting here

Earlier today I took a drive to pick up a small blast booth for the compressor I bought a couple nights ago.
Note to self: If I go to the Tractor Supply that is 30 minutes south of me and not the one by the mall, wear cammo.
Additional note to self: I haven't worn cammo in at least 15 years. Buy larger sized cammo

So now my pistol is all ready for me to start finishing it with a rust blue treatment like my other one I showed. This one I am starting with a matte finish, which is why I needed a bead blaster. It hides imperfections, cleans all the old finish off and doesn't require near the work in polishing. Surprisingly, there isn't one gunsmith shop around that bead blasts. And I felt more comfortable doing it myself anyway. I've come too far to let someone screw it up.

Here it is after initial polishing and fitting. Making sure everything fits before I give it a final finish.




And my new toys... I mean tools in my shed. You know I've had that sweeper since before 1976. Talk about hoarding, but it was perfect for sucking the dust out of the blast booth using the provided hole. And what do I care if the fine glass bead dust ruins it.

Pac, that is looking super! What a difference the blasting makes. Your work on softening the sharp edges makes a big difference. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Thanks, Andy.
I need to bead blast something else now. I was surprised how nice it came out and want to do it again, lol.

Finally got back from the clinic. Stirling hurt just getting into and out of the car. The doctor sent him for X-rays and sure 'nuff, he has a broken rib! From coughing! There's nothing to do about it except be careful. They don't even recommend wrapping the rib cage anymore. Too many people don't cough when they are wrapped and get pneumonia. Poor dear.
