That's the thing. Dealers here are swamped. All of them. Ford dodge GMC. Toyota. Nissan. They're all swamped being basically the only dealers with service departments 8 hours in either direction. They all have the same problem. I dropped the truck off two days ago. They finally found time yesterday to look at it. They ordered the starter as none of the dealers keep inventory in stock anymore. It arrived this morning but when you have 2 mechanics at the dealership who are "qualified" to change the starter (apparently they need special training) things take longer.

Canadian eh!!!

Drove my truck to get a haircut, first time that I have driven since December, it sure was tough getting myself up into my F250 4x4 , had to step up and get both feet on my step bar, much easier getting out. Then the guy that cuts my hair has. Set of stairs 3.5 steps, I made it but was real tired . Got to talk to a real person, not a doctor, or a nurse (now my wife is real person who I get to talk to every day) . Found out that my hair cutter has cancer (one doctor gives him 6 months, another a year) he is also a kidney failure person, got a transplant about 6 or 8 years ago so the anti rejection drugs make treating the cancer harder, he has been cutting my hair for around 30 years, sure hope that he overcomes this hurtle.

Backing my pickup into the driveway turnaround yesterday I hear a slight clunk coming from the right front wheel as I turn. I thought I heard it a few days ago but the radio was on and wasn't sure. This time, yep, gotta be the lower ball joint. This will be the second go around with those little bastards. Just so happens I am on my way to get the truck inspected so I wussed out, dug deep and just paid the mechanic to do it. He had it done in an hour and charged me 50 bucks labor plus the part. I bought a Moog ball joint so a little extra on the part but worth it. Truck passed and a new sticker on the windshield.

Building the plywood road from the site where the wood carver cut the three owls into the old dead Oak tree. It is currently on a pallet jack . About 32 feet up a slight grade to it's final resting place.
Father's day is a beer party with the neighbors who promised to help with the move.

Did as little as possible today. I lit this at 730 am and kept it going all day. Helped a friend launch his pontoon boat. Drove the side by side around a bit. Had a few beer. Might have a few more this evening. It's a rough life. Someone has to do it.

I hear ya. Sunday I have two burly guys coming over to help with the Owl tree move. Two cases of beer in the fridge. Sam Adams and Modelo Negra.
The Tree owls weigh about 700 lbs of standing oak 10 feet high.

I'm thinking it'll be tough. After all that's a whooping eight beers each. We can do this!!!!

It's been a day of rain and more rain.
Talked to my brother for a while remembering Dad. We laughed and cried both, but mostly laughed.
Son Jeff informed me that a former sister in law passed away, his Father's oldest sister.
I'll have to make time to get to the funeral home for visitation next week.
Back to work again tonight.
I've a bag of Hershey's kisses to slip to some of my wandering gentlemen for Father's day.
They might even get a kiss on the forehead from me too.

Grabbed a load of crap, yes crap that we don't need but keep hanging onto from the garage at the old place. Seriously, like while do I still need to hang on to my old school baseball cap from grade school? Just one of many items I've moved from place to place and never once looked at again.

You may want it one day for sentimental reasons, Brian.

Who can sleep around here?
Those little LOUD Global street sweepers?
Don't know why they're even bothering.
It's going to rain anyway.

That's what I keep telling myself every time I move and rediscover things I hadn't seen in years. Lmao.

Got a trailer load over and emptied into a nice pile in the garage where I may or may not get to in 6 months. Then I loaded it with garbage for a dump run tomorrow.

When the missus and I discussed our plans for today it looked like a lazy day for a change. I was wrong. Right from the start it was crazy. Up at 7. Drove all 6 kids in to 3 different schools and hit the gym for 9. At 10 I headed to home depot for lumber to build a workbench in the garage. While there, I picked up a new toilet for our ensuite. I made a couple of stops and headed home by 1 where I got to work building the work bench. My parents have been here for a week now doing work to help out. We finished that by 5. After a quick supper I headed to town to pick up a treadmill we bought for our home gym. An hour later I was back home where friends stopped by for a visit.

Canadian eh!!!

I've got the funeral visitation this evening for Sharon.
I'm dreading going, but it's the right thing to do.
Oh and it's raining again.
