Morning Susan. I remember our cities burning in the late 60s along with Martin Luther King being shot and then the National Guard shooting Vietnam War protesters in two states. All that only a short time after President Kennedy had been shot. Seemed worse back then but I was young. I lived on a farm in rural PA so it seemed like it was a world away from me. Not much different now, I haven't seen anyone get the virus or die.
We have a Rav4 with an area for Brandy and easy to clean. I still have my Subaru I got back in 07 when we stopped smoking, was crowded in there with grands and a dog.
We will have to head out on our walk soon, strong storms today at about 11AM on. I bought a John Deere garden tractor couple years ago when our next door neighbor moved, did the maintenance on it, washed it and waxed it, last couple days. I took it over to my daughters and gave it to her. I'm having a hard time keeping her old Craftsman running and her lawn was a foot high in many places, had to go over it twice. She has a much larger lawn than we do.
Opening the pool. Chloranator cell says no flow. Think I have a broke wire. If the flow sensor is bad I saved the old cell so maybe the sensor from that will fit. I changed it over to salt water about 10 years ago. Other than that all is going well.
Hope your day goes well.
You sound like a handy guy to have around...My husband is like that...not with mechanicals but house building , electric, plumbing etc....we are cooler today the high is only supposed to be 84 instead of 90's cloudy and rain again today stay well
Morning Kitty. Wasn't a broken wire, the flow sensor is actually gone bad. Ordered a new one but won't be here until Tuesday. I bypassed the flow sensor circuit in the main circuit board so it will start measuring salt in the pool water and start chlorinating. I bought 7 bags of salt and put 2 in so far.
Supposed to be 84 here today so Brandy and I have to head out soon. Going up from 74 instead of down from 90.
Wife is a very good and kind person, to kind for this world in many situations. She should have gotten a better person than me but I try.
Have a great day and stay cool.
we just accepted an offer on our house....if it all works closing will be Aug 1 good time to go north and look for a house.....mixed feelings....get it over with but love this place...and the paradise it is here....
Morning Kitty. Glad it's working out for you two. A lot of stress looking for a new home but fun and exciting at the same time.
It's 64 here before daylight so Brandy and I need to get our walk in very early. Think we have a cool down after today.
The Dept of Motor Vehicles is still shut down here so had to register my Monte Carlo by UPS. Cost me $24, lot of running around,
and copying stuff. My insurance company is a pain, always way over estimate my rate from the agents pc, then get a refund later.
I would have left the SS on the road this last Winter if I knew this was coming up.
Hope all goes well in the transition, have a great day.
thanks Ernie....hope the registration goes well....we will starting packing small amounts of stuff that we won't be using and so it begins....we have thunderstorms right now with some sprinkling likely to become rain....
Morning Kitty. I saw rain by Tampa, think part of a tropical storm. Another one, hope it disappears before it gets here, don't need another.
I remember you packing some stuff up early, Spring and Fall. This should be the last time.
Only 52 here this morning but the sun is coming out early and will warm up. Some animal was crying outside this morning so Brandy started whining.
Good luck with packing, sad leaving your southern home.
we are having rainy and cloudy and thunderstorms from Christobel....high surf....checked out the beach yesterday....looked like we were on the Atlantic side instead of the gulf
Morning Kitty. Forecast was right for our morning, 46 degrees. Supposed to be 52 and sunny at 8, so that's when Brandy and I will head out.
I stayed up late so we would get up later.
Gave my John Deere mower to my daughter like I said and got her lawn mowed. Had to go over most of it twice, where I didn't mow when working
on the old one. Gave my other daughter some money. She keeps on renting so I don't know of anything she needs.
I put a little stand out here by the snack bar for my parents old 1957 phone, was kind of hidden on the snack bar with other stuff.
A little 3 legged wooden stand I got at a garage sale or someone put out by the road, don't remember.
Have a great day Kitty, hope the storm moves out unless you want the break from the sun. We don't want the rain here.
Off to Menards to pick up our stainless subway tile backsplash. They have the system down pat with a drive through the back into a huge area ~ walk in with your bar code ~ load your car.
We've struggled with painting an old IKEA cupboard. There was a lacquer red finish and Jim used a deglosser that did not work. We painted it a terra cotta color. Long story short, all of the paint bubbled and would not adhere. Then, a scraper to take all off. Consult with Sherwin & Williams. Sanding it with a 1994 sander that is a huge job. Then, we must paint with a primer, then our colored top coat. I store many many dishes in there or trust me...it would be OUT THE DOOR. Have spent countless hours on this thing....
Storms predicted this afternoon. We need the rain.
