Feel better soon, Bob.

Well, I must say I'm feeling chipper.
I just spent a while talking with Bobcat.

Well this certainly is proving to be the active weather state so far this month.
First tornadoes, now a 4.0 quake this morning in Cleveland.
Eastlake to be exact.

Round 3 of taking the truck to the dealership. They replaced the battery and reprogrammed the computer two days ago. Yesterday, I pulled into a parking lot and went to shut off the truck. I took the key out and the starter kept turning over. I started it back up and drove straight to the dealership. On the way, the starter was grinding and squealing until I hit a bump and it stopped. Later on, I turn it over and click click rrrrr. Nothing. Turn it over again and it fired up like nothing was wrong. So it's back in to get the starter looked at.

Canadian eh!!!

Recovering from a virus???

It's not the flu.

I'm clearly feeling somewhat better but I'm also still sick. More energy and more appetite this morning. My head is still leaking and I'm going through Kleenex like a fat kid goes through the wrappers on candy bars. But overall I'd say that I'm starting the recovery process.

None too soon. Private lesson night at the fencing club. 5 or 6 students are coming in this evening.

The lovely Mrs_Bob wants to go for a motorcycle ride, perhaps after lunch. Her bike was "lowered" front and rear by the shop while she was out of town. We had a beautiful Sunday & Monday for riding but I was in bed. Rain supposed to start up again tomorrow so she wants to go for a ride with me today to try out the new suspension set up. The bike was dropped about 1" at the triple tree on the front end. Rear end now has an adjustable link that dropped the rear about an inch. Replaced the kickstand with an adjustable kickstand too so we can keep everything balanced properly.

Happy to hear you're feeling better, Bob.

I'm about to get some much needed sleep.

Welp, maybe a bit too much too soon?

Had some coffee.

Felt hungry so I got up to go to the kitchen to make a couple eggs. Wave of nausea made me think otherwise. Decided that sitting down and sipping some sparkling water is a better option than making greasy eggs.

I did get some sleep, thank goodness.
Little as it was, then made dinner and Facebooked for a while.
My tow boy son is in Cleveland for the next level of wreckmaster training.
The grandies are fine.
I was showing Maddie a holy card with Jesus on it.
She said, Nana, why he got no shoes on?
I said, he didn't have shoes. He had sandals.
Then she wanted to know if He had boots, drove a car...
That child, I'm tellin ya..

Ty completed his course with Miller Industries in wreckmaster heavy duty equipment towing.
He's giving up 106 and gets a huge wrecker like "Noah".

God I'm so proud of him!

It's been a great day.

Heading out to cut up some downed trees for firewood, then trimming some landscape bushes around the house. Hope to get it done before the 'R' (rain) gets here.

Pics of Ty's new truck please. Sounds awesome.

Doc, it's going to be similar to Daren's 103, but with a longer wheel base.
Then of course, he has to get his name painted on it.
It's coming from down south.
As soon as it arrives and he's in it, I'll sure share some photos.

Been doing as little as possible. We've been running like crazy for 2 months. I decided that today is a relaxing day. No running here and there. No unpacking. Only thing I have to do is make a trip to town later to pick up the truck from the dealership.

Canadian eh!!!

So I peeled the strip off of ford again today. They got the starter in this morning but don't have time to install it. They arranged for a rental SUV two days ago. I got to the rental place and all they had was a small ford eco SUV about the size of my golf cart. Two squirrels running on a treadmill to power the thing. Step on the gas from a stop and you have enough time to brew a pot of coffee before it gets up to speed. Biggest piece of crap i've ever seen. Someone farts a mile away and it nearly blows you into the ditch. The absolute worst vehicle I've ever driven. So when the dealership said I wouldn't have my truck back today, I insisted on a bigger rental. I was given a brand new 2019 f150 with 200km on it to use.

Canadian eh!!!
