Good morning Kitty.  Rain from Ida reaches us in the next couple hours.  Supposed to be

little over an inch if it doesn't veer north more. 

Had to get my daughters mower started yesterday, we parked it away from the bees nest

and parked it so the nose of the tractor was pointed uphill.  Guess the gas drains back into

the tank especially if the tank isn't full.  So I mowed her lawn, was about a foot deep so it's

still a mess.  Parked the tractor down hill and made sure the tank was full. 

Moved a lot of brush out of out lawn that I cut away from the pine trees, then mowed our lawn.

Our tractor starts a lot easier since I got the carburetor fuel bowl gasket in place.

I'm getting stuff ready to go down to the farm Thursday.  Bought the fine thread nuts I need to

try to weld to the broken bolts on the deisel tractor engine so I can back them out.  Also bought

high grade bolts to install the new hub adapter when I get it.  A guy in Wisconsin sells them but

is out of stock until later in the week.

I ordered 8 security cameras to install around our property.  Someone dinged our two late model

cars with a screwdriver or something similar 8 or 10 times each.  I can't get them repaired until I assure

they won't do it again right after they're fixed.  They didn't damage the Monte Carlo SS probably because

it was already damaged from the blizzard.  It's already being fixed and need the cameras up when it's back here.

Have a good day.

Hi Kitty!

my dad was born in Endicott....and we lived in Binghamton when i was around 6 or 7...before my dad reenlisted in the Navy...and we moved to California...He was working as a Frosty Root Beer delivery driver...

I know my dad grew up on a dairy farm..but most of his family relocated to Tampa, FL due to two of the kids having some sort of illness (cant remember what it was call, rheumatory fever?)

Good morning Kitty.  Rained all day here but think only around an inch.

Supposed to be partly cloudy and in the 60s here today, very cool compared.

We bought EJ shoes long ago, mostly my steel toed shoes for work. 

I decided to wait until Friday to travel to the farm, let the water drain away.

I used a puller, ratchet with a pipe on the handle, and a wrecking bar through

the puller to get the tractor parts apart yesterday, now ready for the new hub when

the guy gets new ones in.  Have to get the broken bolts out of the front of the

engine yet.  Bought new nuts here to weld to the broken bolts to take them out.

Fixed our old Kirby Heritage 84 yesterday, filled the basement with dust.  It's old

and on it's last legs.  It was retired to a basement vacuum many years ago.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Just woke early yesterday, lucky I changed my travel days.

I did get our security system partly installed yesterday, just 2 out of the 8 cameras

so far.  Took me a while to get the monitoring system set up in the house.  I decided

to use video cables rather than wifi, more reliable. 

My sister texted me to bring some clamps to fix broken table, so I got them out last eve.

Hope Brian's surgery is going well.  My wife says she needs the same cataract surgery.

Have a good day.

Assure your wife that the surgery turned out to be simple, not painful and quick recovery....Brian doesn't even have his glasses on...so far only needs them for reading  and it is only the 3rd day....

Good morning Kitty.  48 degrees, cool morning, almost Fall.  We got Lasic surgery on one of

my wifes eyes a few years back so she wouldn't need contacts anymore, then this cataract thing

started.

Traveled to the farm yesterday,  Only got the supplies to wire an outlet for the mig welder and the

air compressor after we figured out we would have to.  Didn't have time to get the outlet wired.  Had

to get the lawn mowed because it was all clumped up from being late at last mowing.  Then we went

down to the diner to eat.  I need to get a picture, forgot.  Won't be to long in the future that my sister,

brother, and I won't be able to be out together. 

So the repair on the Allis Chalmers tractor is going very slowly with us working on the electrical of the

building.  I looked back in and saw that we need to get the chain for the sprocket on the other end of the

shaft.  Most of the chain links are busted off where its supposed to wrap around the sprocket on our pump

shaft.  We will be lucky to have it going by the time snow flies.

I got two bird feeders mounted and filled for brothers wife to see from her bed.

They are busy rebuilding the barn that used to be our dads.  Put metal siding all around the outside, again I

should have taken a picture.  I'm still used to the old days.  If we were lucky enough to have a camera that

worked, still might not have film for it.  They put in new framework in much of the barn.

Have a good day.
