Today we aired episode 8 of the Good Old Mike Podcast where we had an awesome talk Glenn from Duckman Cycles and VW Garage. Check out the video or audio below, or check it out on Spotify, Apple Music, or other podcast streaming platforms.

The Wormhole

So today, I was asked to make something that requires my woodworking tools. My wife said, “you do realize you have just opened the wormhole?” Which was a hilarious and totally appropriate term to use given an understanding of my psyche.

The bandsaw got a cleanup, alignment, and test today

My wife often refers to my obsessions as “stations.” Likening it to a kindergartener where I have this station for electronics, this station for music, this station for woodworking, coding, welding, automotive, etc. Most of my “stations” stay dark for long periods of time and I will focus on a single obsession or two at a time. Then something will happen, and “a wormhole is opened.”

Anyway, only time will tell if woodworking is reactivated. I have a project I need to use the tools for. We’ll see…but still, it was FUNNY.

Home Facelift Complete

Today, Melissa completed painting the front door/entry way and that will wrap up the project. I will complete the video this week and post it so we can MOVE ON. I know folks are not terribly interested in this project, but hey, it had to get done.


Next we need to clean our main living room rug. That will be done in the garage. Once that is done, I can get to work on some other fun GARAGE stuff!

Thank you, Glenn

Joey and I had a great time catching up with Glenn and interviewing him on the Good Old Mike Podcast. His episode will air this Saturday (11/22), so don’t miss it! With that said, I really want to thank Glenn for his friendship and support and for taking time out of his busy schedule to meet with us. Thanks so much, Glenn!

Focus This Week

So it is Thursday, and I haven’t posted any videos this week. Truth is, I haven’t played much guitar or worked on many projects this week.


Well, 3 reasons.

I have been doing a lot of walking. After successfully completing the cardiologist stress test on Friday, I have an increased sense of confidence that walking the big hill in my neighborhood is not going to kill me. So, even though I still have the cough, I’m walking the hill multiple times a day.

Work has been busy.

My wife thru her back out. Since Melissa thru her back out this week, i have been staying close to her making sure she doesn’t over do things. Had to take her to the doctor, and perform some other extra credit duties.

So, it has been a “life happens,” week. But the good news is I do have some content ready to be edited and Melissa is feeling a bit better. Things are moving in the right direction and my hope is I’ll be able to record somethings over the next couple of days.

I here is my promise – I will get back to working on content asap. Stay tuned. 🙂

Instagram Username Update

Ok ok, I’m terrible at back and forth. I admit it.

I changed my Instagram Username back to goodoldmike17. Why? Because goodoldmike17 is my username on Twitter and Facebook. So for consistency, goodoldmike17 it is. Decision done.
