Good morning Susan, Kitty, Paul, and all. 54 here this morn, pretty warm when still May.
Hope you enjoy your trip Susan. Wife also had shingles during her first pregnancy but we
were both much younger.
We have a moth flying around in front of a camera, looks like flash the super hero. I'm off
to the farm this morning after exercise. I managed to get the bow and fishing arrow secured
to the bike yesterday. So can get my brother's new wire antenna put up. He's so proud of it
but it's just a wire antenna with a bunch of tuning coils in the coax connector. It's ok, we all
have built something up in our minds that wasn't what we gave it credit for.
I still have to bend the fan blades out on the Allis Chalmers tractor. They still hit the shroud in
front of it sometimes. At least the old damaged hydraulic drive parts didn't hit the radiator when
they came lose last Summer. Finding parts for a 1976 tractor isn't easy, got most of the parts from
a guy in Wisconsin. A place in PA had some of them but wanted twice the price. I see there's another
shield I can install on the tractor they removed before I was working on it. Then I will probably take a
couple sweeps around the field.
I was also thinking of Peter, Paul, and Mary. I had the album in the 60s. Also had Puff the Magic Dragon.
Had forgotten about John Denver though.
Pretty much fixed the bullseye caused by the stone from the truck on the highway in my windshield. Still
looks like a water spot about 1/8 inch across but I can live with what's left. Also put resin in a bout 5 other
spots fragments hit and didn't cause bullseyes.
Enjoy the day all, great weather, 72 and partly sunny here.
You enjoy also, Ernie. Similar weather here.
Good morning Paul. 57 here, warm. Will take the pups out for their mile soon.
Made it to the farm yesterday and managed to get my bow down there on my bike.
I had other work to do so we didn't get the antenna installed yet but the bow will be
there until I drive my Monte Carlo SS down. I had forgotten about the bent fan blades
on the Allis Chalmers tractor. I did finally get them pulled away from the shroud. So
they don't clang every time the engine is shut off. Very rugged fan, used a wrecking
bar and pulled as hard as I could. Still only got about 1/4 inches but that's enough.
Got one shield put on the tractor, there's two more when I find some bolts. All of the
cat liter boxes were so bad I just took them over to the tree line and dumped them.
Did a couple other odds and ends and had to head home.
Probably get the lawn mowed today.
Enjoy the day all.
hello....hope all is well.....the trees here are all green....the cherry tree has some berries and it is 70 here today.....spring in Ct. never disappoints....Brian is out mowing the lawn....and I am watching him....some flowers have popped and some veggies are growing in the garden....
Good morning Kitty and all. 64 here this morn, no heat wave today but guess we're getting
ready for it. I mowed yesterday also, rider and push mower. I still have a small area on a bank
to do because the battery ran down on the push mower. Sharpened the blade on it so maybe
will last longer now.
We have some flowers, the Lilacs have come and gone already. Didn't see that baby Robin living
under them yesterday, maybe he has flown. I saw him fly about 8 feet one day.
They usually have sweat peas from a greenhouse at our farmers market the second weekend in
June. I put it on our calendar every year because I like to eat them uncooked. Sometimes I buy
extra and take some over to the grands. I can't find many later in the season when they ripen in
Have a great day all, some rain here today but not all day.
you should stop in when ours are producing....LOL......we are down to one baby goose....hope it survives....hope your day is wonderful
Good morning Kitty and all. Little rainy here, on and off. But warm. We are still seeing small
flocks of geese going over, very low. Our puppies are seeing them for the first time this season.
They sound somewhat like barking and the pups sometimes bark back. We have rain forecast
around 5 AM, then will be able to take them out for their one mile walk. I've tested my glucose
after these short walks and doesn't really count as exercise for Diabetes. I have to put in an hour
and half after we get back, on the elliptical. Seems hard to keep the pups under control out on
the road but comes under keeping busy. Many Diabetics think that's enough and usually is if you're
taking prescription meds.
We have moths flying around in front of the cameras that we use to watch the cars, they look like
pieces of white paper floating around. Still Spring but pretty much Summer weather.
I did odds and ends yesterday. I had a pipe driven in the bank behind the pool to pull a post in the
pool fence back straight but dug it up last year and straightened it. Couldn't get the pipe out with a
jack so took the backhoe back there and pulled it up out. Took the push mower out and finished the
trim mowing, battery seems to hold up better now that the blade's sharpened. I pull the weeds on
part of the bank by the road, just to steep for me to handle the push mower on it but can mow most
of it. Still have water and mud by the road and at the base of the pool bank also.
The parts for my audio amplifier are supposed to arrive today so can try them. Hope, at least, the short
is gone and would be great if it started working. Has been a couple years since I bought the mod kit and
started rebuilding it. Around $400 for the mod kit but those amps are selling around that price with the
old parts in them from the 80s. Four output amp at 440 watts so 110 watts for each speaker available.
Two sets of matched transistors coming today.
I'm glad to not be smoking and enjoying the Summer weather.
Have a great day.
Kenwood M2A audio amp.
Good morning all. We had the same rain yesterday. More today, but I think it clears up tomorrow.
Enjoy the day and weekend.
good morning.....we are foggy here this morning.....the sun came out for a minute or two and now it is gone....our excitement for the morning is a large snapping turtle barely moving as is their nature.....and we still have one baby goose left.....other then that a quiet start to the day enjoy
Good morning Paul, Kitty, and all. Cooler at 46 this morn. I envy you some Paul, being able to go
jogging but I had my time. My jogging was slow but still made you feel better much quicker than
walking does. The foot doctor was mad I wasn't happy with walking 5 to 10 miles because most
of his patients would love to be able to walk like that, maybe give up an arm for the privilege.
We had a lot of sun afternoon yesterday. Have another heat wave coming, hope it's not 100
degrees down south on the keys where Susan is. Grandkids might make it over to swim in the pool.
Our pool is only 10 or 15 feet from the back door and is fenced so don't get any geese. Did have that
stork one morning but he was gone in a flash.
I can get up later on weekends because the traffic is lighter to walk the pups. Nice not to have to rush.
I still have to be awake for a while before we head out so I'm more alert.
We used to see snapping turtles walking home from church when we were little when we walked past a
larger creek than there was on dad's farm. Like many people these days, I stop and guard them or carry
them across the road when I see them crossing. Brian is probably finding more projects now that the rock
walls are finished.
I did get the large amplifier transistors in the mail yesterday and soldered them into the little sub boards.
Slow and tedious task. The guy sent me a whole spare set. Was nice of him but I have spent over $400 for
parts with him. Still he didn't have to do it. If these burn out I will get a second chance to correct another
cause if there is one.
Was right after Memorial Day weekend I started the last job of my career and the same day wife and I retired.
They didn't want to pay me for a holiday one day after I started so they did when I retired.
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend, guess Paul is the only one still working so enjoy the time off.
