Good morning Kitty.  Snowing here at 3:30 AM but probably won't last long.  We have sorta

warm temps until Sunday and Monday.  That forecast could improve by Sunday. 

Our control circuit board came and I installed it.  Working good and all the food is back in the

freezer and frig.  Nice to have our food back in the kitchen.  I didn't notice my pears were in a

drawer outside so they froze and are ruined but a small thing.  Board cost about what the tax

would be on a new frig like ours.  Half of yesterday I was in the basement working on a radio

amplifier.   I did finish cleaning our bedding including the two bedspreads my mom made. 

Guess Brian and I are finding plenty to occupy our minds and hands and I always used to wonder

why I didn't get this or that project done during the Winter.  It's because I was busy every day.  We

can only do so much, we don't sit around all Winter waiting for warm weather.  I replaced all our windows

with Pella windows the Summer of 2019, also made all new trim boards and finished them.  Our old

windows and trim weren't much in a modular home but were fantastic for a family after we were wiped out

in the tornado of May, 3rd, 83.  The guy across the road wanted all our old windows and trim so I didn't have

pay to leave them at the land fill.  He's either using them for a greenhouse or selling them at the craft sales

they go to.  I think the windows were around $6000, the bay window was around $2800 but we love it.

I need to take care of everyone's garbage today but hope to get some time in analyzing the amplifier

sometime today. 

Have a good day

Ernie

Good morning Kitty.  Glad you got some sunshine, always makes the day go better.

Supposed to be part sunny today and in the 40s here.  We might go somewhere today,

not sure yet.  Either to visit wife's parents or to the farm.

We had pizza with daughter and the grands last eve.  Granddaughter's boyfriend hit the

curb at an ATM on the way.  Lucky I had some body clips to reattach the lower piece of the

car body that broke off.  Gave all our grands a Valentine card even though they are getting

pretty old.  Wife made them some no-bake oatmeal cookies.  We didn't get them ice cream

because of the trouble with the frig-freezer we were having.

Still working on the amplifier that would make it easier to talk to my brother on ham radio.

Made some progress but still not working.

Have a great day Kitty and Brian.

Good morning Kitty.  Some cold days but warmer days coming.  I will take care

of everyone's garbage today so I can go help on the farm tomorrow.  We have

appointments Wednesday and Thursday.  I need to be here Thursday for the

heavy rain along with the snow melt in case of the basement getting water.

Wife was looking for some shams for her new pillows and could only find them

on Amazon.  I have an account there so I ordered them for her.

Cold out so mostly working in the basement with my little heater.  Found a guy

that might be able to give me a little help on this other amplifier also.  Both amps

have serious problems.  Tracking them down isn't easy.  Put the one I just got on

hold until the guy in California can find some time. 

15 years is going by for lot's of things.  Cocoa born, got the Subaru Baja, we all stopped

smoking.

Wishing you and Brian a good week.

Ernie

Amp I'm working on these days.  Still to talk to brother on the farm.

Good morning Kitty.  We had the same weather, upper 40s today.  I have a dentist

appt Thursday, but a simple one also,  today we get my wife's car inspected. 

I woke in the middle of the night yesterday so I didn't get down to the farm, now it

will have to wait a couple days.  I took Melatonin for years to help me sleep and stopped

it a little while ago since I'm retired and have control of my days.  A little sleeplessness

once in a while but another med out of my life.  I did get some more sleep midmorning

so did get a little done later in the day.

Took a couple more steps in the troubleshooting of my amplifier.  Still not working but

always closer.  I'm so lucky to be able to live my life and have the family I have.

Talked to my brother on the radio briefly.  Will get down there to help them Friday or

Saturday probably.  I Will finish the hydraulic drive on that Allis Chalmers tractor pretty

soon, it's about done. 

You all have a great day.

Saying adios to all of my friends on the Sensational Senior Forum.  Heading out Saturday morning to Siesta Key.  Kitty ~ if I get to Sanibel, I will tell it that you said "hi".  Hoping for warm weather and sun.  Leaving the freezing rain, sleet and snow behind for now.  See you in two weeks.  Susan
