Sounds like it's time to move underground! Put a big barn over the house, with lots of junk electronics to attract the lightning!

You do realize that its a two way street!  We all enrich each others lives by our comments and helping one another weather it with our equipment or in our personal lives.

Best day yet so far!  Woke up 2 hours past pain med time & no problems, but I did go ahead & take them.  Found Teresa's smallest 2lb weights & did 50 to 75 reps just to help rebuild strength.  After a few days I'll move up to the 3 pounders.  Then did a walkabout & ended up in the old shop where Dad's been working on the Massey 175.  He had split it in prep to change rear ends, but we decided not to do the swap & instead just checked out the 2 stage clutch, which is in fine shape.  I discovered Dad had attempted putting the 2 halves back together but quit before getting shafts aligned & all pulled up.  I cautioned dad over & over to put a jackstand under the RR axle as the tire goes down overnight, but he never remembers.   Things were a bit precarious after the tire went down, and dangerous really.   So I pumped up the tire and got the stand under the axle.  Feeling rather good, I tried aligning the shafts but it's likely gonna require 2 people & bumping the starter, plus more exertion than I'm prepared to put out.  So I quit & came up to the house.  Teresa was mowing the yard and looked quite tired.  It being self propelled, I took over the last little bit & it was nice being quite able to do it.  I'd never take on a whole section of yard yet though.  I also would NEVER attempt using a non self propelled mower at this point though.  I am slowly joining the living, and it's such a good feeling.  NOTE....I am still being VERY cautious with whatever I do, so don't be worrying.  I may be dumb, but me not "plum dumb" LOL
