Yes, but fixing to slow it down.  I got the north side & front porch cleaned.  I need to move my pressure washer to finish the bedroom front, then I'm done for today.  The 2nd level I had to reach/stretch & scrub with a long 8' brush, and it's got my shoulders aching.  I'll do the back side of the house tomorrow.

It's good news to hear you are aching from normal chores, instead of all those milk cows!

Yes, at least different reasons for the aches & pains.  I found out today my neck really hates looking up.  I guess this is the first job I've done where I had to look so straight up, and for a long time.  But the worst of the house cleaning is done.  The rest is down at first floor level.  I am plain old worn out though.  Teresa & I were walking up from the shop and she's usually behind me because I usually walk fast.  She was ahead of me tonight!

I hate looking up on a job! My neck is screwed for sure! But, several whiplash injuries will do that!

Neck won't let me get to sleep. Tried over an hour and a half ago, so got up so Teresa could sleep. Need to take it easy on my neck tomorrow. I can't sit around all day though, that's for sure.
Not had time for GT stuff the last few days, but wish I could. Just hard to tinker on them when there's things needing done. Winter will be upon us sooner than we'll be prepared.

Finally got so sleep about 2am, and in about an hour, Dad called & needed to go to the hospital as he was having chest pain.  Tests showed no signs of heart attack, but they are keeping him at least 24 hours for observation.  I came on home to get some sleep and rest my hurting neck. Dad was feeling pretty good by the time I left, and was enjoying his breakfast.  I'll check on him later today.

 I just woke up, so called Dad. He's feeling fine and the Dr that came in since I left still doesn't think there was any heart attack at all. He's on no room restrictions, so he can get up & go to bathroom & such by himself. If he's still fine tomorrow, he'll likely come home tomorrow morning.  :dancingbanana: 

 Dad wasn't sure what the dull pain was across his chest, but never felt anything like it, so he was afraid not to have it checked out.  He made the right call.  You never know.

Definitely!  Don't want to take any chances at his age and health history.

Brought Dad home today.  He's feeling pretty good.  He has a VA appointment Monday, then a stress test Friday.  I need to go with him to both if he doesn't object too bad.  He might do fine at the VA, as it's just to find the results of blood tests, but Friday will be a "nuclear" stress test, and not knowing how it will affect him, I must go with him.

  When I got home I installed all the new parts in the shop waste oil heater.  It's been gone through top to bottom and end to end, so it should be ready to go once I get a flue system in, more oil into the tank, and system primed.  I'll definitely be ready way before cold weather gets here.
