I'm going shopping while you guys and gals are all sleeping. Wife wants to look at kitchens and all sorts of things that interest ladies. I need a car wheel wash brush, seat covers and some batteries and after watching daugens movie I might get another 5000 mAh battery for my Ryobi gear.
Washed and chamoi dried two cars this morning in the cold air then hopped in the Mustang to try out the heated seats. Very nice on my sore back after all that cleaning.
Plumbing for the house is now organized. Got some quotes for the shed I want. Kit price starts at $26500 without erection or windows but includes roller doors. I'll need remotes on those. (2) and will be fitting a Ranch Slider where the 3rd roller door would normally go.
Shed is American style barn 15 meters x 15 meters but that could change depending who gets the job in the end. Bit big for me to do by myself. So much to do, so little time. As Ned Kelly said on the way to his hanging, "Such is Life"

That’s 50 x 50 ft. Would narrower and longer cut price due to shorter roof trusses?

Mostly, was pouring when I got to dad’s waited for it to slow down before dashing inside. Was starting to rain as I was packing, so got a little wet. For the downpour at home, I just got in house before it started to pour.

I had song leading at worship.
Ate at the New Mexican restaurant after service, first time eating in, been doing takeout. Great food.
Cooler today, but still humid. AC in RV is working, but very loud.

Drew, sorry about family drama. Not fun.

I tried to stay out of wife’s sister drama with her kids that won’t have anything to do with her, but she sucked me into it last spring. We get along great with her kids. Used to get along with her, until she unloaded on us in a drunken rage one day. I avoid her now if I can, but sometimes I can’t. Her opinion is everyone has wronged her, she plays the victim card continuously, but she causes it all.

66F and clear @ 23:45, headed down to an overnight low of 61F. High temp today was 82F.

Got curl cylinder piston put back on rod and nut Loctited and tightened up. Waiting on Loctite to cure (takes 24 hours) before I stick the rod back in the tube and tighten up the gland nut. Should be able to do that tomorrow afternoon and get it reinstalled on the tractor.

Still need to clean the sealing surface on the tube but that shouldn't take but a few minutes.

Oil and filter change done on Cub.

Mowed all down around house and got that done, plus 1/2 of the lower front. Finish that tomorrow afternoon.

Filled hopper feeder.

Harvested one zucchini and four yellow squash today (on right), stuff on the left is from a couple days ago:

I believe she picked the pepper too early (the little tag shows them as red) but we'll see. Tomato plants decimated by the deer ... :cry:

More clean up and raking done on southwest corner, debris hauled up and added to compost pile. At the point now where the lower part of that area needs to dry before I can finish it up.

Glued up the tees with the risers and sprinkler heads in them for the next watering rig.

Menards order is ready for pick up.

Hope everyone had a great day ... (y)

Coffee is done brewing. 65° with a few clouds this morning. Heading to 86° with lots of sunshine. Enjoyed neighbors birthday party. Took time off from party and put flail mower on tractor. Checked it out with a run down one side of field. Still too wet to cut. Later this week it will get done as fields dry out. Not sure what I will get into today.

Roy, hope you weeks goes well.

Mostly, I need to try one of them neck coolers when I am out cutting fields later this week.

Scardy, not sure it is longest running post. But it may be the most post.

David, if your water in gas is from where you live. Have you tried Ricks StaBil Marine 360?

Everyone stay safe and healthy.

Good Morning All.

I found a fellow that is giving me a quote tomorrow. Start to finish. Narrower would cut price but I don't want that. Longer doesn't make a great deal of difference. This new fella can start pretty soon apparently so I will see how good his quote is.

all of us with cordless tools will find this interesting.
4ah battery minimum but don't go too big with certain cutting tools.
I have one 2ah and four or five 5ah. I use the smaller battery when using my 1/2 drill drilling into normal wood.
Saves a nice bit of weight.
I went and bought 2 x more 5000 mAh batteries today. (and a couple of new things to fit them to.:) That gives me 2 x 2000mAh and 3 5000 mAh so I'm pretty set. I bought a Ryobi sander for the wife as she has to earn her keep and a new brushless Drill. They are supposed to run 40% longer than a brushed drill.
