Ola!

Greetings!! How is everyone doing? Been seeing a lot of activity for Dresdan Files going on which is awesome. I think Salem as a setting has a lot of potential especially with all the locations. It’s like a wicked hub for activity. Things on my side have been pretty busy with school. I passed my shop exam. I got 100% on it. Had to take various measurements with different devices on different auto parts. We also then had to cut a metal block, then make appropriate holes, then tap them (making the lines for screwing) then inserting a bolt. Once the bolt was in, we broke it and then had to extract it. I was pretty happy about how it all went. Now were going into the characteristics of a car. In itself it’s not terribly interesting. It’s getting to know your car parts and how to search various methods to find trouble shooting information. For instance I had to identify all the parts in an Acura engine compartment. I have to give it to them for making it clean. I looked at an older Ford and it was so cramped it was ridiculous.

So with school going on it keeps me busy but I did manage to get the car in the garage. I basically yanked out the garage stairs which made the space needed. I would have been able to do it if I removed the front nose of the car but I didn’t feel the need to plus I wanted all the space I could get. I use a ladder to get down and I have room in front of the car and some space all around. It’s not the best setup but it’s making do with what we have.

I have gotten some tools for my b-day which was great. My parents got me a air tool kit a month ago due to a sale but they also got me some clothes, a wrench set and this cool magnetic LED light which is like a flashlight but you can pull the light end and it makes an LED light bar. Marie got me an impact socket set which is going to be very handy as well as a bolt extractor set with another wrench set. This wrench set has imperial wrenches which are larger then the mixed imperial / metric set my parents got me. I have a basic tiny set which came with my gun but it’s good to have a lot of variety in there. I got a canadian tire gift card from my bro which I will probably use tomorrow. They have a sale on wrenches for brake lines which is on sale. I also got a fairy statue. It is sitting on crystal like globe and is either standalone deco or fancy paperweight. It’s cool but I must say that artists think that all fairy chicks have gigantic boobs.

Aside from that I painted the lower bathroom so that is another thing off the list. Slowly bringing in the patio set into the basement. Got to get ready for winter. With how chilly it has gotten I don’t see snow far off. I do need to construct my crosses. I have a wooden pallette from rona’s that my patio stones came on. I am going to disassemble it and make wooden crosses out of it. I will then make a graveyard on my lawn.

Well off to bed I go, hope your all doing well
