    Good morning!!!!

    Up at 3 am with a faulty furnace. -3 outside is not a good time for issues! Hit the reset a few times. Called the furnace peeps and he came out at 5 am and replaced the fuel solenoid.(don't have one of those) Running fine so far! Glad we purchased furnace repair insurance. No charge for the call...

    Good morning!!!!

    Was another non issue here. We don't have any snow on the ground at all. Tomorrow's storm is only supposed to be 3 inches. Thanks for asking. Been trying to keep up with the post during morning coffee. Been busy lately with my cord hobby. Friend of ours liked them so much he ordered 100.

    Good Morning and Merry Christmas! Freezing rain and ice has put a damper on our celebrations. That's ok though as we did some last night knowing today was going to happen. We might do Christmas dinner tomorrow instead. Hope everyone gets to enjoy some family time and stays safe and healthy!

    Good morning!!!!

    Thomas and Roy. Glad you got snow. All we got was a light rain and enough of a dusting to cover the grass. Walk and driveway are bare. I was looking forward to a little tractor time. It's going to be to cold here now for the next 7 days with night time temps in the low teens. Day temps in the...

    Good morning!!!!

    Very big when not in use. Hard to store and front heavy. The only problem I've had with it was sucking up a rock or stick and blowing a chunk out of the plastic coupling the hose hooks to. Dinged up the blades a bit also.

    Good morning!!!!

    Morning all! 50 here going to the 60's. Big difference from yesterday! 718776 I've tried every attachment I could find to do leaves and this with a small blower is the best there is. It chops up the leaves into small enough pieces that I can pick up leaves for about 20 minutes without stopping...

    Morning everyone! 26 here going to the lower 40's with sun. Misread the clock this morning and got up at 3:15 not 5! LOL. Oh well, I'm used to getting up early anyway. Not much going on here. Picking up leaves and filling the pellet stove are the main activities. That's ok with me. Wife and I...

    Good morning!!!!

    Happy Halloween all! Raw and rainy 49 here with this the second day of rain! What a crazy wet year so far. Better than a drought but sure is depressing! Will be doing leaves again if it dries out. Almost all of them are down now except the oaks. Need to drain and pickup the outside hoses...

    Good morning!!!!

    It works great as long as you have the mower running also. If you try to vac without the blades it doesn't work so good. That makes it hard to remove them though as the mower tends to blow the leaves forward as you drive over them. Still better than doing it by hand!

    Regret a cab tractor?

    I have a cab on mine and my neighbor has an open station. I snow blow with the radio on in a tee shirt and he is so covered up he can't move.(been there.Done that!) In the summer he is dripping sweat and actually passed out from the heat one time. He already told me if I ever move he is taking...

    Morning all! 32 going to a sunny 47. Woke up at 3 am with a neck and back grumbling about the 5 hours of leaf clean up I did yesterday! Second cup of coffee going down while I contemplate today's list of things to do. Going to put most of them off till Monday I think. Two days of rain in the...

    Good morning!!!!

    Phil, you don't work in the snow? Porch looks nice, Phil. Gonna put a roof over it? Only work when it's nice now that I'm retired. LOL. Not my house. I doubt they will put a roof on it. Just a summer use deck.

    Morning all! Starting the day at 51 and going into the 60's. Overcast skies for the next few days it seems. Like Thomas I am starting with leaf removal being a daily chore. It was nice at the start: Now it is just making a mess all over the stones and wall in the landscaping! Wife and I are...

    Good morning!!!!

    Roy, sorry about your wife’s injuries, I hope she mends up quickly. I think I have the choke cherries removed as much as possible! Back pack blower is the only thing I've found that will get them out of the grass! Mower and rake don't help at all. Darn things are so thick they will actually kill...

    Morning all! 68 going to 69 with rain and thunder/lightning. Neighbor says the hole was over a foot deep and covered with vegetation so he couldn't see it. He has mowed this field before with no issues. He hit the hole at full mowing speed and it stopped him dead. The problem with the...

    Tis the season for appliances I guess! We went out today and purchased a new stove and clothes dryer! $1700 for both delivered. We're hoping the fridge last longer as it's only 6 years old.(been repaired 4 times already though) 78 here and humid. Not much going on as it's just not worth it in...

    Happy Sunday everyone! 51 with a high of 76 today. Great weather for walking this morning. Been a rough week for me as I picked up a sinus infection somehow and haven't been able to do much. Feeling better today finally so I think I'm on the mend. At least I no longer need boxes of tissues...

    Morning all! 63 here with another day of rain. It has been so wet here this July that I have visible water on the ground in areas that aren't even usually wet!

    Good morning!!!!

    Thanks! Briggs engine. The head gasket let go and blew all the oil out the intake and exhaust. This is a known issue and you can see why. No bolt in the part between the piston and valve area. Poor design by someone. I mowed the grass today and it ran great with no leaks!
