Good Morning
62° with peeks of sun and a good breeze blowing.
Not supposed to get to 70, but no rain and some sun.

Yesterday was a mixed bag, started with a meeting at the airport about modifying the doors on the maintenance hangar. A previous tenant had “improved” them with structural steel and OSB. This added so much weight that the trolleys that they hung from were overwhelmed and wear out too quickly. Looks like the plan will be to restore them to their original configuration.

After that I ran the wire for the new diesel pump, and puttered around in the shop. My Fusion time was to finalize the bucket ear project, I cut a sample out of 20ga and took it to the excavator to confirm it was a perfect fit.

Put the grapple on the tractor and started clearing the shrubbery and trees in the way of my new old folks home.

Today I’m having a pre-construction meeting with the GC and concrete contractor. After that I’m going to trade the plumbing and HVAC drawings for a building permit. It looks like this project is off to the races.

I have a central vacuum my house since I built it 40 years ago. I can’t say enough good about having your vacuum exhaust to the outdoors. Careful placement of the inlets makes it pretty easy to manage the long hose. I hadn’t thought about putting one in the old folks home, but now the wheels are turning.

Great looking log splitter Frits.
I’m putting a fireplace in the old folks home, something I left out of the house for fear of wasting energy up the chimney.
So now firewood tools are catching my eye.

Beautiful piece of machinery.
C'mon - some specs.
What's the biggest log it's rated for?
it will lift 600 pound logs or more and use 4 way, or 6 way, or 12 way splitter heads. 8 second cycle time with auto retract. Hydraulic lift for the splitter heads to position it for best position.

Morning all, 63 going to 69 and cloudy.
I got the deck on and mowed the areas I missed the other day.
Then took the trimmer out and went through three batteries the grass was so tall and wet.
Still have more to do, but at least it's neater by the the shared road now.
Grilled some salmon for dinner.

Lou - hope they can get your heart to work better.

More discussions about my dad, seems there is not much we can do. Brother will go out again and try to get Uncle set up with autopay then I will go out August to see what I can do. We figured out Dad's GF has bad heart condition, makes sense with the drinking and smoking and wacky diet.

Got to get the batteries charged up for another trimmer run tonight, this day job takes up too much time :cool:

L4N seems like you are still in good spirits, hope they can get you out and about soon.

M7040 - nice splitter, love mine, but it is not anywhere near as nice. Using the 8lb maul was not helping my shoulders any either.

Popgadget - sounds like the new space is moving along nicely

Don, nice grilling area, looks like a great setup.

Be well,
Lunch service for the babies

Always fun to see thousands of tulip type flowers on 90 foot tall poplar trees.

Ken, full grown tulip poplars are beautiful.
That was the memorial tree my family got to be planted along the graveyard in Wrightstown.

spent half an hour on phone making doc appts. Went back to first place, whined a little more, and turns out the day my nuclear stress test
is given, the cardiologist I want to see has hospital duty and will be reading the test. Perfect, if there's anything wrong, I will be hauled in immediately.
Next appointment was in November...but nurse could see me week after test. Resolved happily.

going out to pick some lettuce

We had tulips at last house leaves did not last much longer than the blooms and they do come back.
