Gateway Crossfire Car club is terrorizing southern Illinois today with a wine tour. Too cool for the roadster so we will be running with the wife's SRT6 Supercharged coupe.

Hi all, today I want to fix an oi leak on the new motor its small and I think its coming from the inside edge of the passenger side valve cover as there is oil on the intake manifold and then running down the back making some drip spots when you park it. Then back on the cabin security door that should be done and installed not for the old Dodge motor. Marty

I'm going to Indianola (south of Des Monies, Iowa) this afternoon for the 14th anual Iowa Minuteman get-together. It will be fun visiting with people across that state that I only see once a year....lucky we have phones so at least we can chat all year .

Maybe go to the gym this morning.

Temps are supposed to be in the mid-upper 60(F)s today on the south shore of Lake Michigan. Skies are bright blue and the sun is shining. Roads are dry.

Looks like we may take a motorcycle ride to the northeast and head up to the International Friendship Gardens on the Indiana/Michigan border. Trees are not yet in full fall color but the weather is so nice it will be hard to pass up a nice ride and some of the trees are looking beautiful. The Gardens have several short hiking trials, roughly 1/2 to 2 miles so we'll probably walk around a bit.

Grab a meal somewhere on the way to or from the gardens. If not to the gardens then somewhere else. But too nice to let the day go to waste.

I still have to grout the fireplace but that is a good job to do on a rainy day!

About 20 years ago, I built a barn for my BIL down in Indianola.
Say hi to the Klings and the Bailey families if they are there.

I have yet to hear back from this woman with the mirror.
I even offered her more than she is selling it for.
She did read my message on Marketplace.
Hmmph!

Made flounder for dinner.

The walk was nice.
Eagles overhead!

Hi all, I put a new gasket on the leaking valve cover, thick pressed paper, the others were cork and not very wide you can see where it was missing the valve cover flange. Instead of working on the security door I inspected the tracks on my new old Tucker snow cat, I found some rollers with the flange worn off ( the track doesn't stay on the rails very good like that) and used up most all of my spares. I didn't find any bad bearings or frozen rollers so I just have to grease them all now and load it on the hauler to take to the mountain in November. ( another project that got held up by the truck motor) Looks like I will be on the snow cat forum soon begging for used rollers. Marty

Nobody by those names that I talked with. Glenn Freeman spoke, as well as a state rep and a few others.

Today was a good day. I took my oldest son out bird hunting in the morning. Came home and unloaded the side by side. Then went to town to pick up a used refrigerator to keep in the basement. I went to the church to play the 5pm service. Back home afterwards to play a board game with my wife and daughter. Two of the kids are gone for the weekend.

The leaves started turning a few weeks ago. Most have fallen already with it going to below freezing at night. I've been working on tarping everything up for the winter. Camp is closed for the season. Still lots of hunting this fall though.

That woman sold the mirror.
She finally sent me a text last night.
Her loss, she could have gotten more.
Oh well, they have ones very similar to that style at Kohl's in Defiance.

I'm going to the late morning mass, then puttering around until I go into work this evening.

The leaves are really starting to turn here too.

Back to church this morning with the family. This afternoon is a great time to kick the feet up and watch a nascar race. My legs need a rest. I may play some guitar. I've been playing a bit of old bonjovi lately. What I play depends on the mood.

I had to chuckle yesterday. We're all set to start playing the service at church. Usually the band takes 5 before we start with our first two songs at the beginning of the service. I'm almost always sitting there plucking away quietly as background music. Our pastor walks by and tells me that what I was playing sounded great. Little did she know that I was doing an acoustic version of a Metallica song. In church. While people were arriving. Lmao.

Working on the green house today. I have to remove all of the bubble wrap plastic from the inside as it is old and brittle. Behind it is three years of dead bugs and other critter debris in the four inch gap to the outside plastic wrap.

The Bubble wrap creates an insulating air chamber. But unlike the transparent Greenhouse wrap, it magnifies the sunbeams so that the light is evenly distributed all day.



But before I can replace it I have to clean up the mess and remove all of the old staples in order to get a good seal to the 4X4 framing. This also closes the storm windows airtight.

I used cheap $12 storm windows to glaze the building. Years ago I bought 20 of them (36"X66" side sliders) at a store closing. Works great as they have screen and sliding glass. But, with a thermal rating of less than R3, they are useless for keeping things warm.

As it is the Greenhouse, being 12 feet high, 6 feet deep and 18 feet wide, we get free heat any winter day the sun shines. But with all the cracks and rips in the inner bubble skin, there's been some really cold nights this fall.

Argued wit Verizon earlier today. They jerked me around like they work for the government. I'm probably going over to US Cellular.

Now I'm going to the local bar and visit with friends. I quit drinking alcohol two years ago, so don't worry about me driving home. :)
