    I've never been to Popeyes. Just google mapped it and there's one 15 minutes away. There are a lot better options available around here for fried chicken, though.

    Latest purchase: New front and rear cassettes and a chain for my road bike.

    New Xbox. The old one was a launch edition. It hasn't read disks for awhile and was becoming super slow. The oldest boy turns 7 tomorrow so we replaced it so he can play plants vs zombies again. He's gonna shit bricks when he sees it. Been awhile since he played games!

    7... Man they grow up too quick.

    Do you build anything with all the tools or just spend all your time cleaning? :)

    Always have something on the go around the house. I made a rolling tray the last few nights and have been playing with a weed stash box. I will take some pics tonight

    Here is the unfinished tray I have been fooling around with.
    It is walnut with cedar inlays. still needs to be sanded and finished
    The handle groove holds the poker, the two larger rounds hold the food tins for the weed, the smaller round is for the grinder, paper slot and a scraper/scissors recess.
    the smaller center holes will have magnets so the tins, grinder and scissors are held down.
    The tray area is open so you can scape it into a paper.

    New soundbar. Went with the JBL. Old Sony one kicked the bucket, figured it was time for an upgrade too.

    Bought two Volvo's in completely two different transactions, lol.

    First was a 2006 Volvo XC70 2.5T AWD. Was owned by family previously but was just refreshed to like-new condition by Volvo mechanic. Almost everything has been replaced new in last 40k, it's in fantastic shape. Had the timing belt just done for good measure. Can't get over how well it works and looks for a 13 year old vehicle *knock on wood*. Using this for my dogs and towing my boat since the Jeep is going tomorrow.

    Second is a 2018 V60 Cross Country (CPO) with 6y/160k factory bumper to bumper warranty. Fully loaded with every package and 19" wheels. Had them do the Polestar Tuning as part of the deal. Pick that up tomorrow unless something drastic happens. Post pics when I pick it up.

    Now I just need to sell my Accent since I have no use for it anymore.

    I am happy with it, it drives much sportier and nimbler than the XC70 thats for sure.
