    Ever have one that starts out really well......then turns straight to schit.....quick,fast and in a hurry. Well.....I did,today.
    Working on the barn,starting from about 6:30 to about 2:30.......mashed a finger,stepped on a screw and fell off a ladder. Luckily.....I wasn't far off the ground,and nothing was broken.
    From about 3:00 to around 4.....decided it was time to move the fatty steer to his new home and get paid for him. Got all the cows in the pen,separated the steer from the heard,pushed him into the loading shoot.......where he then decided to see if he could jump the panels. Not good,he wound up hang his front leg up between the gate and panel,dangling from it like a cricket on a hook.
    Do you all have any idea how hard it is to get a big,heavy,stupid animal out of the pickle he put himself in......never mind the potential monetary loss if he'd have broken his leg? Well.....let me tell you.....it's pretty dang hard.
    I'm glad he's someone else's problem now......

    From about 4 on.....I pretty much just cleaned up the shop,burn the cut off and trash,left overs from past projects. Very uneventful.....till,I cast my gaze upon the boxes containing the 80% lowers and jig. Figured since I had them for a while I should finish up a few.
    Boy was that a stupid decision.

    Long story short......I cut into the damn trigger pocket guide by using the wrong replacement end mill. One of two I ordered to replace,simplify the process some.

    Only one thing kept me sane after that......finding out that 80% lowers sells individual pieces for their jigs. 25$ and I'm back in business.
    My rear end is staying in a recliner the rest of the day lol

    Didn't know you were a glutton for punishment Ellis. I would have quit and gone to the recliner after the steer incident.

    Some days you have to carefully sit in the recliner, and don't drink anything hot. :(
