I really don't need a riding mower but figured I may as well grab it as we are looking for a bigger place with at least a couple acres of yard.
I use mine as much as a garden tractor then as a mower. I have one of those small Gorilla Carts I tow behind and load up with weeds or whatever. The tractor gets used a lot and is one of the last really old school Cubbies and very dependable. The mower deck should be OK for a long while too as it got fixed right is now better then that bubble gum welding job the factory did on it. They must count everybody's welding rods at the end of the day to make sure they did not use too much.

I went to a specialist. Ear, nose & throat. he took a biopsy of a sore in my mouth.
It's kind of like a canker sore but it just won't heal.
After that I came home and had a grand mal seizure. After that I didn't feel that well so didn't want anything to eat.

Not a whole lot today. No appointments till 5pm. Spent the day trying to digest a stack of medical reports 3" thick from my recent testing in Toronto and wrap my head around the results. Apparently I have a neurocognitive disorder due to a traumatic brain injury as a result of my accident which prevents me from ever working again.

Had dinner at Olive Garden with old friend I had not seen in decades. She's in town to visit her brother and we set up a dinner date. The four of us had a great time, lots of laughs and reminiscing. My face hurts from smiling so much.

Then I come home and find this awesome rainbow. It took 2 pics to show the whole thiing.

Until a plumber arrived. Then paid $383 for something that seemed fairly minor.
If my great nephew wants to go to college I think I will try to talk him into training to be a plumber instead.

Well my dad does it again. I get to meet all kinds of people because of my dad and today I got to meet an astronaut. Robert L. Stewart. I get to call him Bob now...lol
This completes one of my bucket list items.
I got to ask him why they didn't back haul space debris every trip in the space shuttle. Not enough fuel to change orbit per mission. It is something they would like to do with the next generation shuttle if we ever have one. He thinks we will have something but it will have to come from the private sector. Very interesting guy. First Army man ever to be an Astronaut.
Like talking to your neighbor. Great guy.

Any news on that Brian?
By the way, you're a good man.

Didn't do anything today but work on C- west from 2-10p.
Cat's been fed and he's content.

Thanks. All bloodwork came back clear. They suspect a form of colitis causing her colon to become inflamed seeing as she's diabetic.

That's what they decided I had. If you're diabetic, food get retained in your stomach and doesn't get digested and cleared out. It leads to all kinds of problems.

Up at 6:00 this morning to get the brisket out of the fridge and let it warm up to room temperature. Started the new pellet grill and got ready for round 2 with the thing. Hopefully nothing catches fire or melts this time.

If everything goes to plan, this should be the easiest 12 hour smoke of my life. I've got the cooking profile entered on my phone so all I have to do is turn it over, spritz and keep the hopper filled. I'm following their cooking instructions and not our usual routine. We'll see how it goes.

Got to go get a haircut and beard trim this afternoon in prep for our Scotland trip. May do some bush hogging too. Then again ... maybe not.

Off to take the trash out.
