Hi all, I got the replacement motor for my 4X4 home the other day so this morning early I pulled the pan and found a very thick sludge at the bottom, when you rub it between your fingers it feels like valve lapping compound, I pulled a rod cap and you could see the backing material under the babet plus there is 10 degrees pf slack in the timing chain. Called and they will pick it up and drop another for inspection. Im only going to do this a couple times then refund. It was suppose to be a 60k motor, the only way there was 60k on it would be if it never had the oil changed and was all city driving. Marty

As it turns out, I went to Applebee's with the grandies and Ty's girlfriend.
The younger one had a mini meltdown because I took the crayons away that the waitress brought them so she would eat.

I had a won ton shrimp stir fry.
Could have had ribs lol

Hi all, we are headed back to the mountain today to visit the work cabin once again. This trip will be focused on getting the plumbing done.
1- add whole house filter
2- from filter to hot water tank to all outlets with drains
3- from filter to all cold water outlets with drains
4- drain pipes to existing gray water pipe
5- insulate and plywood the bathroom interior
6-start shower installation
Im using PEX with shark bites for the hot cold supply and PVC for the drains so it will go pretty fast. The shower will require some time for good installation, everything is thin and flimsy requiring very good support backing. Its more Than I can do in one trip but thats the way I roll. Report with pictures upon my return. Marty

I hired an old friend, who does grass cutting for a living, to do my industrial property. Suffering a bad divorce he needed cash so I paid him for the season.

After a good summer of fine work, he disappeared mid August. I have about an acre of foot high grass to cut before the city gives a citation.

My lawn tractor is at my son's place in Connecticut
All I have is a walk behind Husky.
I'm on my third tank of gasoline.
It's in the 90's today.

No beer in the icebox.

When this is over, I'm very likely going to be mad at somebody.

I woke up with the idea that I was going to head out and buck up a couple fallen trees for firewood from the back wooded area on the property. I found a few downed trees already dry and cut them up and out to the trail to haul out when I get the atv back from the dealership. When the chainsaw ran out of gas, I headed to get the gas can to refill it. I walked by the brush saw that was looking lonely from not being used. So I picked it up and hit the trails behind the garage to start clearing them. 2 hours later I had about 400 feet of trail cleared 12 ft wide. I don't plan on clearing the back 3 acres but we now have a nice trail system for the kids to ride on with the small atv. I can also bring the side by side back there now and collect firewood.

Rode the lovely Mrs_Bob's motorcycle to the shop to get new tires. While it was there, and since the rear wheel was off, we adjusted the adjustable lowering link to lower her bike's height. Its now down as low as it can go. She lost a bit of ground clearance and the suspension might bottom off if she were to try to take the bike off-road (not likely) but it can be raise if its too low. New tires are good too.

Puttered a bit around the house doing chores this afternoon.

Getting ready to head off to the fencing club to give lessons. I volunteered to lead the advanced beginner class. I've done it before, its a lot of fun. This class is voluntary and open to members only so we only get motivated students in the class who already have some of the basics. I am not fond of teaching total beginners, nor am I fond of teaching young kids. I won't have either in the class tonight.

Good luck with the move.

Today is another rain day. It's supposed to clear up this afternoon. Busy weekend ahead. Camp tonight. Come back in for the races tomorrow. Back out to camp tonight. Hunting season starts Sunday. So I'll be out hunting first thing Sunday then back to town for the second day of the races.

We have a little dirt track out in the boonies that closed in 2003 to full time racing but a few years ago some of the racers got together and began organizing a 2 day invitational weekend every September after the other tracks are done with their regular season. An estimated 100 cars are expected in 4 different divisions with a 12000 purse for the modifieds. My brother is racing there but in a different class.

Thanks Brian.
Ty is going to help me as he can throughout the day if I need him, probably moreso toward evening.
I've got the furniture guys coming they said between 3-4:30 which means I'll be waiting around for that.
Monday is going to be a day for my history book.
When I want something done, I don't like to piss around.

I can relate Lollie. I hate moving day.
Moved five times in the first year of marriage. Then sevben years later I moved ONCE.

I ain't moving again. Hate it.

That said, My son is still moving. First from CT and now from an apartment to a town house. I hope it is his last.

Hate it.

But you get YOUR place now. It will be worth the aggravations and effort.

Bon Chaunce!

Good luck with the move PG. Hope all goes well.

Feeling great to be home and even got back out on the water today. The yard needs mowed but it can wait. Plan to boat the next couple days. Might be last chance for this season, so enjoy it while we can.

Memorial mass for my cousin today. She was several years younger than me. F cancer.

She died almost 2 weeks ago. Funeral was in Wisconsin where she lived with her husband.

Family is having a second memorial service today for the friends & family that lives in N.W. Indiana, where she grew up and lived for many years. I spent almost every Christmas Eve celebrating the holiday with her and her family. Not going to be the same this year.
