Good Evening.
74° now, high was 93. We had a brief shower as the edge of a cell passed us, but it looks like that’s all we are gonna see. Everything is parched out there. It’s been great for getting concrete and lumber trucks in and out, but not for keeping things green.


We are the blue spot south of Allentown.

Today I left early to spend some quality time with the FAA. There is no simulator for our turboprops, so I get to do check rides with them in the airplane.

I came home to a lot of progress, I could stand in our new living room and get a feel for the size. It’s actually, living, dining and kitchen. There is an island where the pvc is coming out of the floor, the back wall has two glass patio doors with transoms over them. In between them will be a fireplace.


It’s moving right along without me being here (which is probably a good thing for the guys doing the work).

PT went ok, the therapist has narrowed it down to nothing that I didn't know already.... nerve issues, inflammatory response, and resultant swelling. "Not much we can do" Duh! That's why the surgeon sent me to you.... he doesn't know what's going on either!

I guess it's time to call the original surgeon again. The therapist recommended being evaluated by a nerve specialist. Need to get a referral. Can't wait to deal with the insurance company again.....

Well, good (Thursday) arvo. Overnight Low of 2.4C and it's presently 13.3C, partly cloudy with a breeze. There was 1.5mm in the gauge @ 0730.

Early to rise today and performed 'gate preps' in anticipation of the lime spreading happening. And a good thing too as he showed up @ 0805. Short story is that all four properties (me + 3 others) were all done by 1130. A second spreader showed up during the 'operation', so he loaded up and got one the adjacent properties... then they both carried on to a further job at Scamander. The wind stayed very low during the spreading so practically all of it stayed on the ground.

Invoice will come later.

The weatherguessers are predicting a decent rain early Saturday morning. Yay!

That's about it, take care all.

RNG, nope not that simple, I wish. Fuel guage been misreading since I purged tank. Jim disconnected when troubleshooting. He jumped the connector, sometimes will read full, then go to empty when stalling sequence happens. Sometimes it just stays on empty.
