Good morning Paul.  Saw the baseball record later on the news.  I don't follow sports much.  Used

to follow motorsports some.  Now I just watch a race here and there.  All the drivers and owners I

watched have retired.

With the cold weather closing in I finally got to painting the underside of the Subaru Baja, mostly

the back half where we replaced the rear subframe and welded in frame rails last Fall.  Just had

brother in law spray it with undercoating since the Baja was 70 miles from home and weather was

getting cool then also.  Had to clean it with grease / oil remover, then spray it with metal etch, then

put the POR15 on with a brush this time.  Doesn't work as well when I spray it.  Biggest problem is,

have to get it off your skin with solvent fast or stuck with it for about a month.  Skin doesn't like the

solvent.  Have that coat finished, not sure if I will apply a second coat today.  Second coat is easy.

We aren't getting our birthday parties in this year, wife is busy with her eye surgeries and decorating

the house for Fall. 

Hope all are doing well.  Ian finally moved out, saw NYC still getting rain late Wednesday but hope it's

moved away from there by now.  Looks like the next hurricane went directly west and won't bother us

in the north.

Good morning Paul and everyone.  Glad Ian moved out to give you a nice day in the city. 

The new low has moved in here already for Friday, temperature already dropping before

daybreak.  To bad Ian stuck around and made those 3 days cloudy and some rain.  At least

we weren't flooded. 

Coated the hood of the Monte Carlo SS with POR 15 urethane yesterday.  Try to keep it from

cracking any worse during the Winter.  Also coated a dog statue we have, was going to put it

up where all my friends are buried.  Coated an old bicycle we have, planned on putting it out

front with the sled I have out there.  Had some extra that I mixed so used it on the bucket and

shovel on the backhoe. 

Think I saw Kitty post on facebook with a picture of Sanibel Island damage.

Have a great day all.

Good morning Kitty and all.  42 here this morn, warmer.  Seems to me plants start dying

if we get night after night in the 30s even if it doesn't freeze.  Ours aren't dying but they

don't look as good as they did.  Morning Glories are poisonous to dogs and our pups chew

on everything so we had to pull them earlier. 

Did the 2nd coat underneath the Baja of POR15 paint yesterday in this sorta warm weather

so it should have dried and should cure better today.  Put another coat of clear POR15 on the

Monte Carlo hood.  Used the left over for the door jams of the Baja and the bucket of the backhoe.

Wife's parents are supposed to stop by foe few hours today.  Wife is afraid of them being around

the pups very long.  They are to old to put up with them very long.  Pups get very excited around

people or other animals they aren't used to, for a while, then they calm down. 

Paid for wife's eye surgeries yesterday, first eye is next Tuesday.  I will be happy when she can see

again.  We've been working on this for a year.  She got cataracts early and one ear is going deaf also.

Sad she has to go through this and so early.

Have a great day.

Good morning, all.

Had some Australian friends visiting and showing them around the city the past 5 days.  Real nice weather for it.  Enjoy the day.

Good morning Paul.  We had Australians on this forum couple times.  Was strange to hear them talk

about being warm in the north and cold in the south, being on the other side of the equator.  They

have bad wild fires down there same as our west. 

We had the short visit with wife's parents, pups went ballistic.  I took them up on the hill for a walk.

Finished up the Baja and took it down off the jack stands.  Reminds me of younger days back on the

farm.  We put our cars up on milk cans in the barn to work on them, a lifetime ago.  Had a clamp

disappear off a cv boot but a hose clamp was hitting the exhaust when it spun around so had to get

cv boot clamps that have a lower profile and crimped it with wire cutters. 

Our 2 nice weather days gone, rain and cold here now.  Fall sure came down fast and hard.  I was lucky

to get a couple days almost good for paint curing.  I mixed way to much paint but it was just a little scoop

I used, just didn't take much paint for the jobs, except for the underside of the rear of the Baja, that took

quite a bit and I just worked my way forward with left over. 

Enjoy the day, stay dry.
