What's that stink? OR When are you going to stop?


"Are you building ANOTHER plane, ALREADY?" came the question from upstairs.
SNIF! " What stink, dear? I love the aroma of 5min epoxy in the evening, smells like VICTORY!" say I, carefully aligning the wing panel joint on my latest project, SR Batteries Blues.
"Didn't you just finish one?" asked she, eyebrow raised. How did she get down here so fast?
"Yup, finished Big-T #2 Monday night and won Model Of the Month with him at the club meeting Tuesday night. But this is Wednesday night, I have some empty shelf space for more airplanes, a stack of kits and spare gear. And I have plenty of plans and a stack of Bluecor. And work's been, err, UNPLEASANT. So it's build time! Hand me the masking tape, please - on the shelf behind you. Thanks" say I, eyeballing the joint.
"When are you going to stop?" said she with a weary head shake.
"Oh, about 30 minutes past bed time." mumble I as I carefully apply a little tape to hold things.
"RIGHT! Don't wake me when you come up at 2 or 3, hear!" says she, sniffing and going upstairs.
How did she know? Oh well, Peace at last! Now lets see...

P.S. Building - therapy for the stressed out. I love therapy. It's so good for me!

Older but not wiser
I can tell you that after 43 years of experience it's best to get up there just before bedtime.

I know the feeling, when I have a project going, it's usually past midnight, although I try to keep the really late-nighters limited to Fridays and Saturdays, so I can sleep in .
