    Colonel, I'm with you man. In cooler weather I get lost in time. I usually take 3-4 parts at a time out there. The small parts get too hot to hold pretty quick, so I'll put that part down and work on another a bit. I keep each guns parts in their own lil cardboard boxes, with anything to be polished or thats done in lil zip locks to protect them. My only issue is when it's one where there are no drawings or youtube vids. Too long after tear down I can forget whhat goes where, but things like that I make drawings and take a ton of pics during dissasembly.

    My wife is into crafts and she can work on multiple projects on top of each other with crap all over the place. I just can't do that. I put everything away and start with a clean bench. Sometimes foolishly. I put tools away only to have to retrieve them again minutes later but at least I know where they are I guess.
    I'm with you there Colonel. I've developed a long-time habit of putting my tools away where they belong. I knew way back when that it would pay off and now that I sometimes can't remember why I entered a room it surely has!

    John, yes sir, that is my goal. Lot of things need to happen first, including cleaning up and cleaning out that little room. Then purchase a used, heavy wood desk off Craigslist, then cut a hole in the side door for the unit as there are no windows in that room. So, I have to purchase a few of those "round tuits" before I can get started. My back is ok some days, but most days not so much. All of the stars have to align before the round tuits arrive on these kinds of projects. That and the work stuff/having time.😂😂😂

    I can sure relate to that eye thing. I cant see worth a crap anymore up close. Many times I just have to ditch the glasses all together and just get real close. Seems my bifocals or trifocals or whatever Im wearing just makes things more difficult. Im finding getting older sure requires a lot of patience.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    When I was seeing a dark spot when looking through peep sights, that was a sign of cataracts. My young eye doc with millions of dollars of equipment didnt catch them. The old experienced doc saw them with a flashlight and magnifying glass. Zap zap two implants and great vision.

    I think if I get the close one eye thing Ill get me a parrot and an eye patch and create my new image. Of course Id have to get me a sailboat then too and maybe some cannons. Might be fun.
