Been on a 24hr vacation to flea markets & such.  Got a few shop items I needed, plus a repro clock for the shop I didn't "need", but I like it.

Been mowing all morning and finally finished except a small spot in the garden area.  We had no garden again this year due to being so busy at work, plus a dismally wet spring.  Teresa did plant 3 tomato plants, and there are a few tomatoes left.  So soon as she gets what she wants, I'll mow the rest down.  Between last night and this morning I mowed everything here, barnyards, house yards, garden & 1/2 mile of road frontage.  Getting a bit dry, so finally the fast growing grass is gonna slow down.  Been mowing every 3 to 4 days all year long.

Had to pull the trans from my Uncles's rider to drill out a broken off front trans retainer bolt.  I hate how they've cheapened things.  Instead of drilling all the way through the trans bosses to use a real bolt & nut to mount, they drill pilot holes, then use a self tapping short bolt.  Cheesy cheap way that doesn't hold up.  I got the broken bolt out, then drilled through to use a 3" long 5/16" grade 5 bolt with nut.  Another day or 2 and I'll weld up the frame tabs & get it back to working order.

This new cell phone takes blurry pics, and it's supposed to be known for great pics.  Maybe I need to read up to see what I'm doing wrong.

Got the backup metal welded in Uncle Russell's rider and pto clutch removed.  All that's left is the arrival of the new belt, then things bolted back up.  She'll be back to mowing soon.

If I get about 5" from the screen, close my right eye, and look and look through the right bi-focal with my left eye the picture clears up just fine. 

See if that is part of your instructions.
