Tossed another few miles on the car. It'* well over 180,3xx now. It'* sloppy like an old *****, and yet snaps to it when I give it some throttle.

Put a Cuisinart single brew coffee maker on the counter.

I had to stay home from work, everyone in the house is sick * a dog other then my son. That kid never gets sick. I might have to go hide in the shop for a while.

Cleaned up the interior a bit. It was too nice yesterday to not be outside after work, even if it was going to rain anyway.
Cleaned/dressed up the leather on all the seats except the drivers seat. Treated/cleaned the door panels, dash, and most of the trim inside. Cleaned a lot of junk out, and reorganized the trunk a little.
Got out my new 18V cordless drill and polished out the headlights and tail lights. (Works awesome. The drill was a good investment). Got out my Mothers powerball and some Meguiars Ultimate compound, and took care of a few minor scratches and scuffs she picked up over the winter.
Also de-badged the emblem off the rear tail light. Took quite a bit of time to get all the gunk off, even using PB blaster to help. They put a ton of adhesive on those things. But it was worth it. Much easier to polish, and looks a lot cleaner now.

Yesterday, I worked on my hood for my truck some more and took out the glovebox on the truck. Also cut out some diamond plate for my door on the truck.

Checked under the hood of the 1999 Bonne and saw that it looks like another UIM job if I want it to see another winter. Then I checked out the shiny new Porter Cable and wished the weather would cooperate for me to fire it up.

I caught the day of summer. Unfortunately now that the snow is finally gone again, I see that the grass is starting to grow, so I'll get to put the snowblower away and get the lawn mower out.
