Morning Kitty.  Sad you need surgery but good they believe they can fix it.

Fixed a solder sucker I bought about a year ago today.  Fixed my old one and then this new one quit.  It was only a vacuum hose in the handle, good thing, they are expensive.  They are for electronic repairs.

I might go south and move a ham radio antenna for my brother today.  I looked at it on my last visit and should be able to do it easily.

Was nice to see daughter and grands for pizza, granddaughter couldn't make it.

Have a good day.

Hi Kitty ~

Not sure if I responded.  Bronwen is here for two days.....Finn up several times during the night.  Dropped her off crying (middle of a temper tantrum)oh my!

Did you see your house looks like a barn?   Dutch Colonial....Gambrel roof?   Oh my, sounds beautiful.  Our home 1977 was out of a colonial magazine and was a gambrel roof design with long front windows in the front.  All brick ~   I so miss our home.

Well, you will have lots of fun redecorating, etc.  Five acres?  Surely, you will need a big dog... Lol

Hi Ernie,

Just think of all the $$$ thousands you have saved by being a hands-on person!.  Kitchen is complete with last shelf hung.  Now, a break and begin to tear up carpet in main living room.  We did buy all of the planked floor, transition pieces and end caps.  Just waiting for a bit to begin again.

Cool and breezy here.  Had the 2-1/2 year old granddaughter for two nights...it's a lot to keep up with them. Susan

Morning Kitty.  Hope your testing went well. 

We got my brothers ham radio antenna moved and installed where they live now.  Works well.

I need to take some calk and seal the hole next time we go down.  My dad had a coax fed antenna there once so the hole was already there.

I ate a regular fatty hamburger with white bread bun and french fries so my glucose and weight will both be up today, take several days to drop back down.

Drove my Monte Carlo SS and it worked well.

Have a good day.

Morning Susan.  We put in Laminate flooring about 9 years ago.

Our grands are all much older than that.  Sad but had to happen.

Our refrigerator freezer stopped cooling enough.  I noticed I didn't always hear the relay on the control board click when I plugged it in.  The relay controls the compressor and the fans.  So I replaced it and looks like we are good.  That's dollars I didn't want to spend right now.  Our last frig was 25 years old and still worked when I gave it to a friend for a garage beer frig.  The shelves were starting to rust.  One we have now is much younger.

Have a good day.

sometimes eating restrictions are too hard to follow....sometimes I just want a hamburger and fries too....and I don't have restrictions but shouldn't eat too much beef anymore.....no results on the testing....and still haven't picked colors to replace the purple and orange  would love to do it all...but we can't  paint or do anything inside until after the closing and we haven't a clue when that will be...

And what kind of appliance lasts 25 year?   I had an Amana once....side by side in Green that lasted forever.  I got tired of the color!

On hold now for 25 plus minutes waiting for the IRS Tax agent.  Seems I mailed my Federal Return in a timely manner....they CASHED my check within two weeks ~ and YESTERDAY, I received a letter complete with penalties and interest that I had not paid it.  NEVER in my entire life have I been remiss in checks.  So, now here I am on hold trying to figure out why they say I never paid.  As a sidenote....if the government can't properly credit you with the money you sent...how in the heck is this mail in balloting going to work????

Sunny here.  Cleaning lady was called in.  Can't do all of this.  Had granddaughter for three days and Jim's family this week-end.  Way too much.   ((hugs))  Susan

Morning Kitty.  We bought our original place before the tornado and it wouldn't have passed the tests.  Hope yours passes.

My weight and glucose weren't up so working on the antenna all day must have cancelled out the effects of the relaxed diet.

Painting will give you something to do in the future I guess.

We bought some new concrete blocks for the Winter pool cover since I used old ones for a barrier to keep mud out of the lower drainage ditch.

Have a good day.

Morning Susan.  It was a GE frig but the new one is also a GE and didn't last nearly as long before we had to fix it.

They are two different government agencies so hope the votes count and also that you get your tax payment straightened out.

We're going to a memorial for a friend that died today, second one in last 30 days.  Before that ten years since last one.

I need to go to the Farmers Market first and our 8 mile walk before that.

Have a good day.

Ernie
