Dennis, costly repair, but not over the top when compared to other prices I have heard of getting quoted by others.

Do you think you could tackle it yourself? Might be able to get a pump for a couple hundred $$$

If I was retired and had the time I could do it, but it’s in Ohio, and I don’t have the time to take off.

Good (Friday) morning. Overnight Low of 2.4C, calm and fairly clear sky. It's presently 14.1C.

Well, the 'horse mad' woman (from a few weeks ago) has gone ahead and bought a horse; it's arriving tomorrow. 😄 She popped over for a visit yesterday arvo for a cup of tea and a chat. There's a LOT that she'll need to learn when it comes to owning & caring for a horse... but she'll get there eventually. I've offered to set up a water trough on my neighbour's front paddock (she wasn't aware of just how much a horse drinks) and she was chuffed that she had 10 squares of hay to feed (I said that that might last a fortnight =o_O). Steep learning curve ahead for her.

That's about it, take care all.
Been through the horses 'thing' LOL Hook the trailer up every 2 -3 weeks and go pick up haybales. Luckily it was my wifes thing and not mine. I didn't envy her going out to feed every night rain hail or shine and worse if we got home late. She commented the other day that she doesn't know how she managed to do it for so long. Her love of horses stemmed from her father who was a well known horse trainer. All up we owned about 5 horses but max of 2 at a time. I think I miss a couple of them more than she does. They were very affectionate animals. One of them liked it when we lit a fire and would try and catch/eat the smoke. Very funny to watch the expressions.

69F and clear @ 21:30, heading down to a low of 56 overnight. High temp hit 83.5F here today, had some breeze so it was fairly pleasant.

Cut and made up a 2' tall chickenwire cage first thing, ran that around back to the garden area where The Woman was taking a break in the shade from weeding.

Then ran up and got a dump cart load of screened compost and got that placed along the edge of the flower bed, then gathered up the weeds and hauled those up to the compost:

(That black mulch I did yesterday)

Woman had been hard at it (out in the sun) so I managed to get Her redirected over to a project in the shade.

This is that area underneath the maple up by northeast corner where I mentioned we had planted some plain green hosta before we started on it today:

The evergreen shrub is just about dead, don't think it gets enough light and probably not enough water for that matter. Might try and move it later if it can hang on.

After some weeding and clean up:

Several trips to the compost pile with one stop at the burn pile.

Didn't get anything planted in there today but it's ready to go for tomorrow. Will need some more screened compost though.

Spotted a volunteer redbud tree, which I left:

Need to get a cage around it, probably go ahead and let it grow right there. Could end up being attractive.

Grabbed the partially empty Water Buffalo and hauled it over and watered the 4 Black Scallop Ajuga and watered and fed 2 rhododendrons and 4 azaleas which emptied the WB.

Woman headed over and started some more weeding on second circle where the grape hyacinth are planted.

I went out and took the 2' tall cage off the west peach tree and then took a break for dinner, Woman had fixed some spaghetti, was good, couldn't eat it all and saved for midnight snack (or lunch tomorrow)

After dinner I headed back and got 2 more bell pepper plants planted, watered in and fertilized and caged. Think that makes 5 total.

Picked another zucchini which was ready, gave it to neighbor lady who was down visiting while out walking her dogs. She likes them and so do her dogs (one little terrier and a couple of chihuahuas, all rescues)

New day lily bloom - "Catherine Woodbury" I believe:

Time for a bowl of ice cream maybe and then to bed for some of that "open window" sleeping weather.

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

Man lift cage functional. Have a couple improvements maybe for the future, but want to just get some use as is.


Got my pressure washer secured and started cleaning my PV


So dirty, hard to believe they were producing at all



Had to quit when I blew the turbo nozzle. Couldn’t have been much more than 10 years old.

I feel like i got a whole lotta nothing done today ... not true, just feels that way.
- washed several dozen eggs, and sold them ... need to wash more
- paid a lot of bills this morning (online), before heading into town
- insurance renewal for the car (wife has it out of town)
- counselling appt
- coffee with friend, birthday
- checked on my zero-turn, almost done with the fabrications
- tires / rims should be on my truck early next weekice cream
- continuing my research for the right Leatherman multi-tool
- critters all happy - dog, chickens, rabbits
- now time for some food, and a show
- i keep forgetting to fill a jerry can with gas, for equipment use around the yard
- need to mail out some packages to various people
Seems so quiet here - Sister In Law left for a few days, to attend a wedding

Tomorrow is another day ... Salv Army scraps run and assistance re some new shelving that they have, some errands / shopping, then an ice cream cruise night with the cars gang

Saturday i have plans to meet up with a friend from Highschool. He lives about 7 hrs away, but is camping nearby. Haven't connected in person since Grad in '82. Should be a fun lunch.
Perhaps an ATV, Side-By-Side adventure with other friends later that evening.

One of these days I will get around to that dump run (local dump is only open Friday - Tuesday, from 10-4), it takes some coordinating their hours, and my truck's use at any given point.

That's about it. Prayers & Safety everyone :)

Woke up to find the county repaving the road in front of our place. Whole bunch of cars everywhere. They don’t use hot mix asphalt because the nearest plant is too far away.

But the wife is coming up tomorrow with her new 4Rrunner. And I am very worried about that tarry crap getting all over her new paint job. 😫


By this afternoon, both sides were brown. I hope they put some more stuff on it, because there is a lot of tar there.

lutongdaisy is filling TBN with numerous SPAM posts - x13... injectors etc. joined yesterday.
OTHER than REPORTING it, there must be a way to filter that stuff out - kind of annoying
