Afternoon folkz. 69/91 for the day and it was plenty hot and humid. I took Sharon on a ride and we stopped at a little joint for lunch on the way home. Got the Honda all dirty so we took it to the car wash and blew it off after getting home. We have been enjoying the AC all day in the car and the house. The humidity is just killing us so we are relaxing a bit. No plans for this evening and the weekend is looking rather gloomy with high humidity and hot temps to make it worse. No more garage sales for this guy as we only made a few hundred bucks and wasted two days doing it. :D :D :D

Evening. In the 90's and humid today, required several breaks to cool down. :oops: Got everything stained, and though it got stormy looking towards the end the sky didn't leak. It's dry enough now that rain shouldn't bother it Ann E. Moore. Stars are out and the radar looks clear. Tomorrow I have a 4'x8' sign to put on posts and another sign to take off a wall as the business is closing. Maybe pick up some PVC lattice for the deck tomorrow if all goes according to plan. Gettin' close to a done deal. My Dick Tracey step-o-meter says 31,500 steps today. No wonder I be pooped. :|

Got home from Jenni & J.D.'s (and Grandkids) & found a stack of road signs. Tomorrow won't be a day off I'm thinkin'. :|

Mornin. 67,8°f but humid, so it feels hot already. I'm cutting vinyl for a Mantis excavator that is setting outside, so I'm hoping to get it done before the sun gets too high in the sky.

Morning. Okay, I went out to the S 10 to see if I could remove the Tork bolts that hold the seat in. I got the passenger's side lose but the driver's side is a no budge situation. The passenger's side is okay but the driver's side feels like I am sitting in a five gallon bucket. The foam is disappearing from it's intended location so I want to remove the seat to fix it. I had a ratchet and a 1 1/8 open end wrench on it to break it lose and it would not budge. I don't have an adapter for my 1/2" drive air ratchet so I will have to improvise. Back to the drawing board. Sharon is off to a secret sister's meeting at the church and the dog is sitting in front of the back door whining her head off. :D :D :D

Nice looking project there Gary. :shock:

Thanks Jack.

I got everything done, but changing out the light switch in the gazebo and rebuilding the 3 gazebo doors that are sagging and have torn up screens. Oh, and I bought a 1/2pint of Por15 to repaint the hinges & latches. That won't happen until it cools off a little though. Mid 90's the last few days.

Went out for lunch after Church. Heading home in 90°f+, humid air. When we got to the bridge it was 87°f. Started raining, by the time we got over the 1/4 mile bridge in was 76°f and raining hard. The 5 mile trip south was slow going in very heavy rain and the temp had dropped to 68°f by the time we turned east for the 7 miles to home. About half way home the rain had stopped and the road was dry as a bone. With no rain, the temp raised back up the 87°f by the time we got home. The rain is just now catching up, so the temp. will probably drop again. :wink:

Hello from beautiful Walnut, Iowa. Denise and I got an hour out of Omaha heading East when we noticed someone burrning oil big time. Looked out the back window and it was US! Smoking like a BBQ. Called around and found a local guy well rated so we did a U turn and headed over there. Turns out a rubber hose broke in the oiling system. They ordered an afternarket one from a place about 20 miles away and we are stuck here overnight! Luckly, there was a Econolodge right next door to the shop and a truck stop across the street. That was where we cobbled together some dinner. I did the show with Audrey Worm from the hotel room and it worked out great. So, hoping that we will get good news in the monring... Lucky that we are on vacation and have a few extra days to work with. LIfe's an adventure! bp
