The City of Waco cable channel came out a while back and did an almost three hour interview about my hobby. I received the DVD today. 6-1/2 minuets. Really professional and in HD. I used a combination of Movie Maker and VLC media player to convert the DVD to something I can U/L to YouTube, hopefully it will make it past their music copyrights. I have it uploading now, stay tuned.

Recently I had to use Old Girl to mow a large part of the property. She did well, and is all cleaned up again. I noticed some looseness "wobble" with the blades, so I tightened the bearings up. If I spin by hand each will do 2-3 revolutions freely. Then using a drill it spins them with little effort. No slop at all now, just want to make sure I didn't over tighten. This is a task as the scissor lift and deck cover has to be removed. All greased and stored again.
