This if my first full post from my phone.
I built a cabinet for my work locker. my father in law helped me out. Here are the pictures.
The outside frame.
Here it is with the drawer installed.
Then the bottom and back cover.
Then we used some paint from the smores project.
Kinda a girly color. But oh well.
Today Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, thus spring is on it’s way!
What does this mean for this Idahodian? It means camping season is getting closer! As some of you blog followers may know, I took a trip out to the Hideout a few weeks ago. There’s about 2-3 feet of snow, so if it does melt fairly quickly in the coming weeks, it’s gonna make for one sloppy mess!
I don’t have many plans for the hideout this year (not yet anyway). I really want to focus on cleaning the area up, leveling out some ground, and fixing everything winter has broken.
One thing I have been putting a lot of thought into, was trying to make some type of shelter, so I could keep my stuff up there during the weeks that I’m not there, oh and also sleep in it. That tends to be the biggest hassle when going up there for a few days, packing ALL of our camping gear, just to pack it all back a few days later. I’ve thought of everything from a simple shed, to a Pallet Cabin, to a school bus, to a van, even a camper (which I claim I’ll never buy, cuz, well, that’s not real camping). So stay tuned. I’ll have some new idea cooked up soon…I’m Sure…
This last Saturday I went with my Father-in-Law, Chuck, fishing on the Clearwater. Chuck’s Twin Brothers and one of their kids also came. Instead of going on the boat we fished off the bank. Which actually wasn’t too bad. I didn’t have any luck, but the Chuck and his Brother Jerry did. They each caught 1. I didn’t even have a bite!! So Frustrating, but I had a good time. It’s really relaxing for me. Listening to Chuck’s twin Brothers bicker really makes me laugh too.
On a good note, I was able to wear my new bib-overalls that B.Maree got me for Christmas, they worked really nice, kept me nice and warm!
Here are the pictures.
Beautiful Morning on the Clearwater
Me, catching….well, nothing…
Bait shrimp, Beer, and Cigars
What a turn of events!!!!!
The Eagles hired Chip Kelly today after he initially turned down the team (I think a week ago). I was wishy-washy about it the whole time, on one hand I wanted a Defensive mind, but at the same time I wanted someone who could take advantage of the current offensive talent (minus the QB position).
It was believed that the Eagles were turned down by 3 high profile college coaches (Chip Kelly, O’brien, and Brian Kelly). It was also said that the Eagles were being used to get raises by their current employers. However, it sounds like the eagles used Brian Kelly to lure back Chip. and it seems to of worked.
Was also reading that the big sticking point in the first meeting was that the Eagles didn’t want to give an unproven commodity in Chip Kelly, the keys to the franchise by giving him say over personnel, just like Andy Reid had.
It will be interesting to see who they hire at DC. Look for it to be like a second head coach. Kelly will handle the Offense, and the DC will basically be a second HC and will handle the Defense.
This is a classic High Risk High Reward move. The Eagles will look like geniuses if it works out, but will look like absolute fools if it doesn’t work out. It will be interesting to see where we are at a few years down the road.
Until next time.
