So today....

 

 

Last night the co-flex the doc wrapped my knee in was driving me bonkers and I could not get to sleep. At 3am I finally took it off.

 

 

This morning I gave my new toy a test run.

It holds a full pot and them some. Makes the old one look small.

 

 

Steph went to the store and got me an ace bandage. It is a lot less itchy. The co-flex was like sandpaper.

 

At 11 she had to take the neighbor to the doc for a shot of cortisone in her ruptured discs. They had to wait till almost 3 to get in even though they had an appointment.

 

At 2 Heath went down for a nap. I took a shower.

 

When she got home she had to leave for class.

 

Shortly after she left a neighbor came over and perused the tractor selection in the yard. I didn't have anything he had to have.

 

After that another neighbor came over to get the last workbench.

 

In between my dad and I had a nice chat online. He had a tooth pulled and can't talk and was bored.

Nice to see you graduated to the big boy coffee thermos. Is Heath ready for the old one yet? It might stunt his growth........

I watched this and (after wiping the tears off) was thinking Uncle Willie may want to try a new method of dis-assembly. Not sure what he threw in there, and the Top hat was a good laugh also. https://www.facebook...829460953743594

I have wanted to do that for a long time. Only problem is finding a working washing machine especially a front load.

I hear that! Used washers are Russian roulette any more.

As for this one, He bypassed all the controls and direct wired the motor. You can see it in the video.
As long as its a 110v motor, it will wind up to max speed and not quit until it blows itself apart.

It reminded me at one point of the small robot Wall-e and how he would have acted after eating some "Bad trash". I just thought it was a Hoot video, better than most of the blown engines on purpose videos I have seen.

Yep it didn't work at all until I got off the phone with them. Guy is coming out tomorrow morning.

 

 

 

 

 

So today.

 

 

I am bored.

 

cc.jpg

Got up bright and early this morning. I was having an odd dream that I was a private investigator (I actually was in real life at one time) and I was sent back to my old elementary school to investigate something. I woke up before I could figure anything out.

 

 

While I was at the computer I heard a car alarm going off. I looked out the window and the Kia I got Saturday was going off. Turns out that Heath found the key fob. LOL.

 

It was nice today so Steph and Heath went outside to get some sun.

 

I wandered out a while later and found Steph about to herniate herself picking up the dogs pool. I asked if she knew how to siphon using the garden hose. She didn't. I now know why the back yard is flooded every time she does the pools. Now she can get all teh water to go down the hill.

 

She helped me get all the Serial numbers off the tractors I need to fix.

 

 

Then Heath and I checked out the Kia.

Carmel helped.

Ewwwww.

I came in when my knee started to bother me to draw up super detailed plans for a tractor work stand

and to look up part numbers.

 

Build tractor work stand.

Shortly after Steph left for class the neighbor called and said that the big wind gust caused a loud noise on her roof. I walked over to see if there was a tree or something sticking out of the shingles. The wind had pulled the cap off the chimney.

 

Doc called and said my test results came back that I had an infection in my knee. I get to take antibiotics. Yippee.

 

 

 

Then I got to spend an hour on the phone with AT&T.

Yikes. No fires. He replaced the modem and scratched his head. He said he has gone through the service call history and it makes no sense that it behaves as it does. It is obvious something is wrong, buy they don't know what.

More bored.

 

 

SO I wandered around waiting for AT&T to get here.

He showed up and replaced the modem. Any one want to take bets on when it happens again?

 

 

At around 1 I was going stir crazy and I had to get outside. So I managed to get a pair of pants and shirt on and then grabbed my field jacket, hat, and slip on shoes and headed outside. (Yes I was dressed when the repairman got here. I was wearing my batman pajama pants and and OCC t shirt.)

 

The super winds we had yesterday had blown stuff all over the place. A guy had given us a trash can full of aluminum cans. They were all over the yard. My tarp was blown down. The cover on the Buzzard was flapping around. I found my trash pickup stick - an old broom handle with a drywall screw in one end of it - and grabbed the small shopping cart since it was light enough to move and I could lean on it. I got a cigar out of the truck and went to town. I kept wondering why everyone was staring at me when they drove past till I realized I looked like a homeless guy. All I needed was a bottle in a bag.

 

With all the cans and trash picked up I lit the burn barrel and then harassed Steph as she was picking up all the tools that had been under the tarp. I will be needing a new tarp. This one will cover things just find, but no more hanging it up the ends are shredded.

 

At around 3 I was hurting and I staggered back in. Steph had some shopping to do. Heath is supposed to be taking a nap although I can hear him bouncing around his room.
