Good morning Kitty.  Weekend again and we all have it off.

I'm working on that radio, not easy, everything is miniature

and surface mount parts not made to be repaired.

Rain today should wash some of the chemicals off the road.

Brandy and I anxious to get back out on our walks.

Have a good day.

Morning Kitty.  No rain to wash the roads here yet.  Supposed to rain

again tonight into Monday. 

Was working on that radio and my microscope quit.  It's digital with a

small screen, guess I should get one of the old manual ones with just

lenses.  For now I'm looking at fixing the one I have.  I don't remember

the quality names in microscopes even though I've been using them most

of my life.  Maybe I will when I start looking at them, probably same names in

eye glasses and contacts.

Hope you can find some fun things to do, Spring is almost here.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Didn't get much rain here, certainly not enough to clean the

salt and chemicals off the roads.  Maybe rain today. 

I disassembled my microscope and took out the circuit board.  I have a little heat

gun with a nozzle on it so it can be used to melt solder to make a joint or melt the

solder joints on a board in case the joint has come lose.  So I went over both sides

of the board and watched the solder melt in some cases.  Anyway it worked, my

microscope is back.  So now I need to get back to the radio I was using the microscope

on.  Glad I got the scope working, just bought it about a year ago. 

We still have almost complete snow cover on the ground here since December 17th

when we got the 42 inches but it's melting rapidly.  Any faster and there would be lots

of flooding.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Another coat of snow on everything here this morning.

At least all the ice is melted out of the driveway. 

Didn't get the power supply fixed, will need more repair besides those 2 transistors.

I have another power supply I can use for that transceiver until I get it's original

working.

Woke early this morn but will get a nap soon.

Have a good day.

we woke up to bright sunshine and 14 degrees...and strong winds all night...we were lucky and did not lose our power    again last night I went over all the pluses in my life for not smoking anymore....If I could visit the kids they would probably all send me outside....that was never enjoyable....cause you puffed fast to get back in the house and then you "stink"  I never realized that until after quitting when I could smell others...happy day

Good morning Kitty.  It was a sunny day here also.  Daughter and grandkids

came over to visit and play a board game.

I don't know many smokers anymore.  The guy that moved in next door with

the dog Brandy plays with sometimes.  His brother or a friend is a doctor and

told him there's no use quitting in his 60s, of course there is.  His mind is addicted

so it grabs onto that false information.  There's been 6 families move into that house

since we've been here.  That's the way with many of the homes around here.

Have a good day.

Ernie
