Willie, nice stand. Impressive.
If you mount a boat winch on the front, it would make running the derelicts up easier.

 

That was my suggestion.  I have a strap wench from HF mounted to a "T" bracket that I clamp to my table to bring the non-runners up and my table doesn't have near the incline yours does.

Another beautiful day.

 

 

Last night we were all in bed early. This morning we got hopping and got outside.

dinner0.jpg

I got into full blown tractor dis-assembly mode. Steph had a few things to do and Heath was soon nekkid and in the docks pool. He is a bit sunburned from yesterday but it didn't seem to slow him down.

 

 

At 3 his speech therapist got here. She was a bit freaked out at my carrying a pistol. Then I explained that we have a mountain lion prowling around, and a few weeks ago a mystery van was prowling as well - and police response to my house is about 45 minutes. She calmed down.

 

.Heath didn't say one word to her. I swear he does it on purpose. I find it hilarious because he talks all day long.

 

 

When the went inside I got a tractor up on the lift. I videoed it but my phone messed it up. I took a break and took a walk around the yard.

 

 

When the therapist left we picked up the tools. Then we all got cleaned up, hooked the small trailer to the OX and headed off.

 

 

First we had to go to Harbor Freight to exchange an impact wrench that decided it wanted to run non stop.

 

Then we went up into the hills to get some dinner....

13 rabbit and 2 cages.

 

 

 

Soon they will be dinner. There is a breeding pair so we will have lots of dinner and Zeke might get lucky!

 

 

We got home at 935. Heath was hungry so he got a peanut butter sandwich and Steph turned on a train video.

 

I am sitting on my massaging cushion, my back is not happy. Steph had to run to the store to get something. Heath has not moved.

Yep They be fruit and nut rabbits. Mixed with something else. I don't care what they are as long as they taste good.

 

 

 

No sleep last night. Back is killing me. Going to the doctor tomorrow.

Good job on the video. What kind if camera were you using. The work stand turned out well. I would leave it up if it's not in your way. Our second daughter now 32 had to have speech therapy...took two years. She would talk not stop but when we took her to therapy she just sit there & answered questions. It took awhile but she done very well.

I used my phone for that video (Droid Mini). Not my favorite phone but it has a great camera.

 

 

Heath talks his head off until the therapist gets here. Then he won't say a word. Kid has my stubborn streak.

I have a Galaxy S5 that takes very good pics but I've never took videos to post.

Kids are so unique maybe you should tell Heath she's not a stranger & it's ok to talk to her.

Got a little sleep last night. When the alarm went off I realllllly didn't want to get up. Neither did Heath.

 

 

 

Had top go see HotDoc today.

We all went to my doc appointment because there was a chance she might shoot me with something I couldn't drive after taking.

 

When the doc heard where I was hurting she hooked me up to an EKG. IT was fine. She gave me a prescription for pain and a referral to a specialist for my elbow (not related to my back but nerve damage).

 

We came home and ate. Heath had his speech therapist visit. At 145 he and Steph went back to the doc for his appointment. We couldn't get two closer together. No problem it  isn't that far.

 

Now he is in my lap watching train videos. Steph went to get my prescription.

If you've whacked that "ulnar" nerve in your elbow a bunch, then that would sure damage that nerve.  But then I just thought....was it hurt in your wreck?  It's that same nerve my Doc figures is pinched, but in my neck.  I feel your pain buddy!

It is cubit tunnel. Like carpel tunnel but in my elbow.  Had it operated on several years back. It is messed up again.

Videotape Heath talking, the therapist can watch that when she has nothing else to do.

Steph had videoed him talking several times. Don't know if she has played it for the therapist or not. I honestly think the kid just enjoys messing with her.

 

 

 

Not much going on due to the pain meds.

coffee-syringe.jpg

My friend called night before last and said that his truck wouldn't start. (91 GMC 1500 with about 400k miles). Said he was in Lowe's Parking lot. I tried to talk him through getting it to start but he said the key would not turn far enough. HotDoc put me on pain meds for my back so no driving. He got his wife to come get him and then get me. I figured it was the ignition switch (Electrical not key). I pulled one off of an old steering column because it was past time for parts houses to be open.

We got to Lowes and he was right in front of the lumber door.

Electrical switch was good. Pulled the steering wheel and the Key switch was broken. Fortunately I had one in my tool box. Stuck it in and got him going. But since I was drugged his turn signals don't work and his horn is sometimes in business for itself. He is going to bring it back later for me to fix right. LOL
