Gettin’ stuff done

Got an early start, finishing up yesterday’s work…

A little figgerin’ out still required on the ceiling fan, but when we were done…

…it works! It’s a little weird, but it works. Need to kind of reach through spinning blades to change speeds, but how often will that happen?

Then we got the hardware up for the sliding barn door. Figured it all out yesterday, so today it was really just a matter of assembly.

Little Bear does not think all this activity is right at all. Though he took to his Uncle Big Brother right away. This is the third time I’ve seen him do that with his first introduction to a relative of a regular. Has to be pheromones or something: If he likes you, he’ll like your mother or your sibling.

BB and I, on the other hand, were reminded late this morning how much we both dislike painting. Fortunately the actual painting phase of the trim project is now complete except for post-installation touch-up.

Tomorrow: Trim installation!

    Are you two making time for ‘fun’ with all this work getting done?

    Probably only once!

    It’s a funny thing I’ve noticed with every dog I’ve had that they instantly recognise family . It’s almost as though they can smell the related DNA or something.

    I suspect that :LB’s sadness might disappear quite rapidly if he were given a couple of jars with PB remnants inside. Don’t even have to be real PB jars, as long as they have a dollop of PB in their innermost region, and the jar is dog safe…

    “If there is no rooster the eggs will stay unfertilized and edible.” WTF?

    Did you get a special ceiling fan or just a regular one? I mean are you DC or AC? I need one as well but trying to keep the amps down.

    It’s 12VDC, with a 3-phase brushless motor that totally won’t work with the garden-variety 2-conductor circuit I wired for it. Hence the weird location of the controller.

    I haven’t been able to determine how much amperage it pulls, but at full speed it has an impressive effect on the indicated voltage on the living room readout.

To the stake with the heretic!
