    Yesterday was GREAT!

    I got some SEAT TIME!!!! (see the seat time thread). I moved around the "base layer" bales from where I was storing hay for the horses in order to make more room for my tractor attachments. I dropped the stump grinder on a pallett, and the bucket, tooth bar, and ratchet rake, picked up the bushhog and grapple. I need to make a place for the PHD. But it was awesome driving the tractor around and doing dirty stuff.

    Then I took the big girls bowling. we were terrible but it was sure fun.

    I also moved one Harley to my new residence, and the other to the shop for a new front tire and safety inspection. I got the truck inspected, which included a $250 adjustment to the E-Brake which has NEVER worked perfectly since they replaced the nerf bars due to getting sideswiped.

    I think maybe it is really time to think about changing my truck out...

    Today after church I will get my youngest, and again all day tomorrow. WOO HOO!

    side note - Yesterday while at the ranch tractoring. I was very respectful, but never sked permission to be there. I did not go in the house, I did not bug her. I did play with my youngest on the swing, and hug and chat with her. I worked in the barn and away from the house, with a buddy (who did all the interfacing with my wife. But man-oh-man did she seem irritated I was there...

    Be well & God Bless all!

    On the AC capacitor issue.

    If you can work on your own tractor. If you can replace an electrical wall socket or light switch. If you have the sense to turn off the electric to the unit before working on it.

    Then it is as easy as pie and you should stock a handful of caps.

    If not, then not.

    Be safe,

Now when the clutch cable broke changing gear, up or down, without the clutch was ok but getting it moving in the first place was an art. You had to unload the passengers, put it in 1st and crank the starter. The old 6 volt system wasn't up to much so you only got one shot at it. The passengers had to jump back in as you idled down the road. I had a lot of experience with both of these practices.
    Very impressive. You tell this to a kid today and they have no idea of the struggle some of this was and the creativity required to survive and simply get from point A to point B when we were flat broke.

    When I was a kid, a friend had a Kaiser that you had to remove the air cleaner to prime the carb with gas before it would start. Made a nice impression on a first date.

    66 right now, high of 77 predicted.
    Got some rain yesterday...more today.

    Downloaded a few old movies yesterday...the original British version of "The Woman in Black" from 1989, "Rocketship X-M" and a few others. If you like ghost stories, you'll like "The Woman in Black".
    Also, some Dave Brubek jazz ("Take 5" is a great one!) and Alanis Morissette.

    But was it really a struggle? It would seem so to go back and do that today, but back then, it was just what we did.

    Poured second cup of coffee. 67 with clouds this morning. Heading to 83 with afternoon showers. Sister showed up yesterday. Stayed up way to late visiting. Hasn't seen her in 3 years. Going to do family visits today.
    Drew, flat was because I had low pressure in tire. Lifted a heavy load. This pinched tube and cause a leak. Note self. Check tire pressure more often.
    Good Morning All.

    There's an old Maine joke about the Mainer that goes to Texas to visit his prosperous brother-in-law.
    The Texan can't stop boasting about how big his spread is and he finally remarks "Why it takes me two days just to drive around the outside edges".
    The Mainer thinks for a moment and says "Well, I've got a cah (car) like that myself".



    People in the rest of the world won't get it but in Maine it was hilarious.
    What do I know? I came for the O ring advice and stayed for the pizza and comic relief.

    That's funny! I'm also glad that you like "pizza and comic relief"!

    We have a saying in Texas, and yes it is true. "We have ranches bigger than the state of Rhode Island!"
