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.
Picture of Brandy's sister, Dixie, few weeks ago.
we are fogged in and it is in the high 30's supposed to be cloudy all day and might be in the path of the wind storm....hope not...I am not a fan of wind....Brian is out digging the garden bigger and enlarging the fence so the deer can't eat everything we plant...hope your day is good....
Good morning Kitty. Supposed to be a nice day here today, storm has passed. Sad for all
the people hurt and killed in the tornados in that storm. Our home was destroyed in a tornado
back in May of 1983. Brian has good weather to finish his work. Me also, plan on changing the
rear struts on the Baja.
Didn't do much in the rain here yesterday. Tried to solder an old watch band of my dad's but
solder wouldn't stick. Wife is changing the decorations from Fall to Christmas.
Took the dogs, Dixie and Charlotte, for walks while we were up in Morrisville, NY. Dixie has had
bad hip joints since she was young so she can only walk a mile or so. We take her back home,
then Charlotte goes another 9 miles or do. Dixie is Brandy's sister so a little over 9 years old now.
You and Brian have a great day.
we had clouds and some rain all day...but last night before midnight we had high wind gusts and downpours...Brian slept thru it...the wind gusts were really loud and worried me a bit....trying to think of trees that might come down...nothing wrong tho thanks goodness...so clear and sunny now and just hit 40 .....Brian is out working on digging and changing the fence....good day for him....hope your day is wonderful
Good morning Kitty. We had that wind storm earlier in the evening. No damage here
either. Much damage down south. Was nice weather here yesterday also, our weather
almost a copy of yours. Even nicer weather today. I will be trying to get those struts
replaced on the Subaru. Have to compress the coil springs that are mounted on top of
the struts, that's usually the tricky part. One year I had to replace the larger coil springs
on my wife's Camaro and one spring compressor slipped off. It crushed my hand against
the car frame. Had to have my hand sewed up. But these coils are much smaller, can be
a real pain to get them into place though.
Wife will probably get groceries today. I don't usually go anymore because I am to trmpted
to get myself food that hurts my campaign against my diabetes.
Got under the rear of my Baja and looked at the welding done. Interesting how he did some
of it. Not how I would've but I'm not experienced at it anymore. Back in the 80s when I raced
a stock car for a while I got sorta good at it but faded out over the years. Now days I might weld
every five years or so on a lawn mower deck or something like that.
Glad that Brian and I have this little window to get outdoor work done in some comfort. Warm
enough if you're working. Still have to be dressed pretty well if doing something that is more tedious
than hard work.
The huge Newfoundland dog next door greets me sometimes when I park in the driveway. She is 100
pounds last I knew and used to play with Brandy.
Have a great day Kitty.
Good morning Ernie.....the most incredible sunrise this morning....so bright with many colorful clouds and in the west the clouds were pink....supposed to be cloudy for the rest of the day.....now how will you be able to work on the car with an injured hand? glad you have a lot of "things" to do to fill you energy level....hope your day is great.
Good morning all!1! Just dropped in to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I had 10 years without smoking on June 27th!! So g;lad I quit and this forum was so instrumental in keeping me SMOBER!
Merry Christmas so good to see you and hear your 10 successful years...
Hi all you healthy Seniors
Stopped in to wish everybody Happy Holidays. Hope everyone is healthy and happy.
Weather has been wonderful around here.
Good morning Kitty. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets for us. Didn't crush my hand this year,
was in 2001 changing the coil springs on my wife's Camaro. The end was broken off one,
should have left it but didn't know that when I started. I'm more than half done changing
the struts on the Subaru. One side is finished and the other side is out with the coil spring
mounted on the new strut. Have to get the rebuilt assembly up aligned and bolted in. The
Subaru takes the worst salt because I use it after a storm rather than risk our newer car.
Some of the people you helped showed up to wish you a happy time for the holidays. You did
so much work to help others.
Today I need to finish the Baja and take care of daughter's garbage and ours. Then tomorrow
go down to the farm and take my brother to an eye appt an hour from their home. His eyes
are messed up from not taking care of his diabetes. Now they might have to use a laser to remove
blood from behind his retinas. I will probably get down to the farm soon enough to clean things up
from the last 10 days or so. My sister is still sick with her bronchitis and living back at her home
recovering. She will most likely go to Florida and spend the Winter with one of her sons down there.
She does every Winter.
I'm certain Brian is getting lots of work done during this good weather. He must be building the
rock wall all by hand. I'm grateful to be finishing the Subaru before Winter completely closes in
on us. Cars are so expensive right now. They have few late model used cars so charging the new
price for them. They know someone will buy them. It will correct itself before long because the
car companies and dealerships need volume to make the kind of money they want. Not us, we
did the work and have years to go now.
Enjoy the day Kitty.
