    I know I want to be in the garage but have been tied up doing other things.
    Painting exterior things around the house, pressure washing deck, recoating wood on deck area, cutting grass, trimming the hedges and vacation have kept me from playing for extended time in the cave.
    So I was wondering what has kept all of you my friends busy and away from our hobby.

    I'd say you barely have time for anything.

    I can definitely relate to this post. It just seems the extended daylight makes more things to do to keep me busy from the tractors. I haven't touched the 110 hood since the first coat of primer. This has been the first time I've been on here in weeks. The time in the day just flies by. Hoping to set a day or at least a few hours aside soon to get the hood finished up.
