So many little things got done.
So this morning at the crack of early Jared and I were up
We left to go to the custody clinic. I left in plenty of time to make the 25 minute drive. That is if there had not been some idiotic woman driving at 5 mph most of the way there. At one point she got up to the blazing speed of 15. I swear I thought the wheels were going to fall off the BlueOx at that high rate of speed. When we got to where there was a turn lane she proceeded to get in it and drive on. When we passed her she was just gabbing away to the passenger. She drove up to a traffic signal that was green and just sat there. Fortunately it was on the 4 lane so people could get around her.
We got to the clinic and had to figure out what was going on since the lawyer was halfway through her presentation. Once she was done I explained to her what was going on and she gave me some forms to fill out. When I gave them back she said someone would be in touch with me today ( they never called).
We were going to go over to the SS office and get Jared's card, but I left his birth certificate in Steph's truck.
We headed home.
When we got her Steph was getting ready to leave to get her truck inspected. I told her to take Heath with he5r so Jared and I could get some work done. About 10 minutes after she left there was a massive downpour. It stopped just shortly before she got home.
She put Heath down for a nap and then three of us left awake went outside. She found some bolts and put Gradys hood back on. I put the belt back on the Falcon – although I did it wrong and the clutch works backwards it will go if you have the clutch in and stop when you let it out.
Once Grady's tractor was re-hooded Steph broke out the trimmer and ran it till it ran dry.
Jared and I took a look at the neighbors Troybilt tractor, and found that she had messed up the cable for the PTO engagement and dinged the blades up. It took a little thinking to figure out what needed to be done to fix the PTO I also sharpened the blades. I started it up and drove it across the yard and engaged the blades -and it immediately died. So it went back up on the jack.
When she hit whatever she hit, she managed to jam the blade brakes inside the pulleys and disconnect one of the return springs. I had to come in to look up some diagrams to figure out how the spring went back on.
Once that was fixed and it passed the mowing test, Jared and I broke out the pressure washer and gave it a good cleaning. The neighbor bought it new two years ago and I don't think it has been cleaned since.
After Steph ran out of gas with the trimmer she came inside to fix dinner – baked chicken, mixed veggies, and cheese biscuits.
When Jared and I came in we spent some quality time harassing the cat with the laser pointer.
