Good morning Susan.  My wife has taken down Fall / Thanksgiving stuff and started putting up

Christmas decorations.  I haven't gotten involved yet.  I used the warm day to go outside and

get a little work done on my car.  Weekend is here and we don't have to work the weekend.  smile

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Was 47 here yesterday, used the warm temps to work on my Baja outdoors.

Talked to my brother on the phone, said it got up to 54 down on the farm.  Nice day to be outside.

Power steering was leaking, had to fill it down in Pa Tuesday and hope leak is fixed now. 

Found a watch band to put on one of my dads old watches but now that band broke apart on one

side, haven't looked at it under a mag glass yet to see if I can fix it.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Right at 32 here this morning.  Not supposed to snow today.

My denim shirt I wore as an over shirt was badly ripped out but kept it going as was

a gift from my wife.  Finally let it go but took the snaps out of it.  I used one to repair

a shirt I ripped a snap out of it moving an AC unit.  My wife had a denim shirt from

her work she gave me.  She didn't like them because they wouldn't let her have a day

off using a vacation day last couple days she was there.  She couldn't even get one weekend

day off using a vacation day and they had to work one of their weekends off to make up for it.

So we glued a Harley Owners Group patch on the shirt over her company's logo.

Glad Brian is finishing up his stone wall, has gone on for a while.  Has to be quite large.  I've

moved many rocks out of plowed fields but don't think I ever built anything with them.  Just

reminds me of those walls families built up north of us trying to establish their farms just to

find out the soil wouldn't support a farm.  Now the walls are still there in the forest.  I feel so

bad for those families though they are all long gone.

I have some tests in the hospital Monday, then Tuesday we take the Subaru north to have the

frame rails fabricated and welded in.  As long as wife's brother's schedule doesn't change.  Our

stuff is discounted and his shop is his lively hood.    So I probably won't be on this forum next

Wednesday and Thursday.

Hope you and Brian have a good day.


Suby Baja.

Brother in law sent me a picture of the SS yesterday, almost finished, this is an old picture.

Good morning all......totally fogged in here....42 degrees I think I would rather have snow...hope everyone's  day is fabulous and of course smoke free....,.I noticed yesterday that wherever we go...we park and when I get out of the car there are cigarette butts all over the ground....could we please use the receptacles?  of course we are not the guilty party cause we don't smoke anymore...keep at it....

Good morning Kitty.  You left the forum for a couple days, now I am traveling and will disappear for a

couple days.  Don't know my password anymore, comes up automatically and I don't want to ruin it

trying to log on with my phone.  We're going north so my brother in law can fabricate frame rails for

the chassis of the Subaru Baja and weld them in.  It's tricky to weld them to the body because it's not

thick steel so easy to burn a hole through you work.

Hospital tests went smoothly yesterday, glad I got it done before everything shuts down again.  Funny

they ask you if you've been exposed to anyone with the virus in the last 10 days while you are in a building

where all the sickest people with the virus go. 

I will love seeing Brandy's sister up north and walking her and her friend, Charlotte.  People think Brandy

and her sister, Dixie, look alike but only similar to us that spent every day with Brandy.  In pictures, that is.

It's rare I see a bunch of cigarette butts on the ground.  Might be the same person doing it.  Glad we are

coming up on 15 years since the beginning of stopping the smoke.  Subaru didn't do as well as us because

of the salt.  We are taking some other hits with times passing though.  I've had a few places on my body

rebuilt or repaired.

Take care Kitty.  I should be back Thursday most likely.


Brandy's sister, Dixie.

Good morning Kitty.  A good week coming up for Brian to modify the garden for 2022.

Paul did finish the two frame rails Thursday afternoon so we left Subaru Baja indoors

for the new undercoating to cure until Friday.  Then we came back home.  We played a

lot of that board game, sequence, games this past week.  It's rare that someone else is

being paid to work on one of my vehicles but two of them this year.  The rails were harder

to do than her thought.  I thought they would be but he was optimistic.  The Baja is riding

much smoother now, still have to put the new rear struts on though.  Have some good

weather to sneak that job in before Winter.

My wife's parents are doing worse but still going and living life.  My parents have been

gone for a long time. 

Have to travel down to the farm Wednesday to take my brother to an eye appt.  His eyes

are damaged from letting his Diabetes go just like his legs.  The appt is an hour back towards

our home here so lots of traveling to do for me. 

Have lots of pictures of the new frame rails, pups I walked up north, and my wife's parents but

not on this PC yet.

Hope you get out some in the nice temps after this rain.
