I agree, can't stand them plastic hoods. Worthless!

If you're applying bug repellant anywhere near them the drifting spray will eat right into the plastic. Don't ask me how I know!

2-4D will do the same Lorna!  Ruined all the plastic on my Honda Foreman years back with the wind drifted spray.

Just mowed everything here at my place this morning.  Also replaced a piece of vinyl siding I already busted with something tossed from my John Deere 430's deck.  So I installed a used chute off a rotted out deck to stop this from happening again.   

  Cleaned up some hay out of the old calf barn, and dug a drainage cut for shed rain runoff with my Kubota tractor.

Just not worth the effort & time.  I am going to keep my eye out for any make hood I may be able to fit to it.  I have till spring at least.

Neck aching kept waking me up, then when about to drop off to sleep, thunder began, so I just got up for a little while.  Sounding quieter now, so trying sleep again soon.

Slept through the thunder but woke up when electricity went out. Packing everything up getting ready to go back home. Thanks again for seeing to JJs request he loved it, and also for trying to help me find out what's wrong w/my truck, so baffled by it.

Got back to sleep last night after 3am.  Physical therapy this morning, and neck still aching.  Finally got time to get my hair cut.  Every time I went to get it cut, they were backed up.  Tried a new place, and got right in.  Great trim for 1/2 the price I was paying!

  Not gonna attempt much today.  Damp cold day, and need to rest a bit.

First thing this morning was physical therapy.  Today was re-evaluation time, so I had to move everything as far as I could at all angles.   Left me hurting!  Made a couple other quick stops, then home.

  Been "trying" to install my winch on the Bubota RTV, but had visitors all afternoon.  I was bound and determined to make a showing of some sort, so I just did get the winch bracket built and the winch bolted in place.  Another day I'll install the wiring and switches.    This wasn't a Kubota winch package, so I had to make everything fit.  The wiring to the battery isn't long enough, but I have some large cable the same size that I can splice to make the run.  

  Now for some vegetable soup with cornbread!   :thumbs:

Just been the usual, working and going to physical therapy. At PT they tell me it is increasing my range of motion, but is most definitely increasing the pain. I get to see my surgeon on the 18th, so hopefully will get insurance to finally approve an MRI.
I took this entire week off, and we're at Pigeon Forge. Just 2 nights. We'll be back home tomorrow. Only a 4 1/2 hour drive, so easy to make a quick getaway.
Gotta put a new lower element in dad's water heater when home.

Why is it a second home seems to triple the amount of projects a guy has?

I'm glad you guys got away for a couple days! Doubt I'll ever make it there.

Not sure if the PT conclusion is a good sign. But I hope they approved the MRI.
