Topped up the batteries on the solar system, and gave them their semi yearly bath.
Put a new battery in the Bully, and gave it a bath.
Figured might as well give the Vic a bath too!

I'm taking a road trip somewhere soon.
Screw this covid crap.

The most secure is dont turn it on. Second most is turn it on but dont connect to the internet.

Anything else could be a problem.

Well I can't log on Facebook from it because I don't remember my password as it's been years, plus the email I used is no longer active.
I'm afraid if I try to change it, I'll get locked out.
Phone to computer won't speak to the other.
Oh well!

Today, I'm not going anywhere or doing anything.
I'm making myself a steak dinner and listen to the illegal boom booms (again).
Someone was having a great time last night.

Heading down to the dock slip to take the cover off the boat so we can go tubing later when the temperatures are ridiculous.

Probably have a few beer later to cool down and stay hydrated. Followed by a few more this evening around the fire. I may top that off with a few more before stumbling my drunken ass to bed.

I got my mowing finished yesterday. I got a message from Onstar just as I was getting ready to leave for town saying that the battery in my car was dangerously low. They were right. I got in it and tried to start it and all hell broke loose, the doors locked, alarms went off and nothing electrical worked. I had to take the truck to town and one of the batteries in it is a bit dodgy too. 4th of July or not I'm going to have to put a new battery in the car today. Finding it is going to be a challenge.

Same here. Late last evening I stepped outside and there were so many gun shots ringing out that it had me diving for cover. It died down a bit after midnight but there were still some people shooting at 1 o'clock in the morning. I suppose it'll be the same tonight. I thought that there was an ammo shortage? Obviously not around here.

Went to look at a possible flip house.

This should be a quick one if we get it. Some repairs but mostly just paint, carpet, cabinets, appliances. No moving walls or other major work.

Relaxing this afternoon. Shrimp on the BBQ for dinner tonight. No plans.

But we do hope the guy down the road puts on his annual fireworks show. Didn't buy any this year for us. Hopefully he will provide the entertainment.

Default Re: What are you doing today?

I wandered out this afternoon to put a new battery in the Cadillac. That shouldn't take long, should it? wrong. Darn, there is no room to do anything in that engine compartment. It took about 10 minutes to maneuver the top off the battery box and lo and behold, what do we have here? There is what I can only describe as a bus bar attached to a plastic frame clipped on to the top of the battery. I've never seen a setup like that in my life and the booger doesn't want to come off. I don't want to get too rough with it and break it but I find that there is a trick to getting it off but it took me about 20 minutes to find it. Now I find that there is not enough room to get a hold of the battery and lift it out. Okay, I have a tool for that. Get it out and find that neither of the new batteries that I have are the exact same dimensions as the AC Delco that I just removed so the plastic frame and bus bar won't clip back on to the new battery. So far what should have been a 15 minute job has taken me an hour and a half and I'm going to have to wait until Monday to go to the GM dealer and get a new AC Delco battery. It's 95 and 80% humidity and sweat is dripping everywhere so I say screw it, I'll wait till I get a new battery on Monday.

I get cleaned up and go cook hamburgers and wieners and get ready to drink some beer. MY SIL is bringing over ribs tomorrow and the damned Caddy can sit there till Monday.

Beef short ribs are already in the smoker this morning.

I'll be adding 2 full slabs of pork back ribs to the smoker in about an hour and a half.

Sometime late this afternoon we will be eating a protein heavy meal.

Going to the gym this morning and to Council Bluffs this afternoon to pick up some "Trump 2020" signs to distribute here in the Avoca. I'm also going to a meeting about Veteran suicide prevention. They are really active and passionate about helping Veterans who are thinking about suicide.

Same here out in the country. Not much gunfire tonight but a LOT of fireworks. The dogs didn't like it much. We usually take the RV in to the Civic Center on July 4th, camp a couple of nights and watch the City sponsored fireworks display overseen and carried out by the Fire Department. Unfortunately, the City cancelled the fireworks display this year so we stayed home. It's illegal for individuals to set off fireworks in town but that doesn't apply outside the City limits and it seems that people out here weren't going to be without their fireworks. Because of all the trees we couldn't really see them but we sure as heck could hear them. It went on to almost midnight. I suppose that by that time everybody was drunk.

Doctor's appointment tomorrow morning at 8:30 for bloodwork and then battery shopping.
