Well. got one more day! Paul thought he had plenty of White grout, but the second bag was not White! After cleaning out all that and getting a new bag of grout, I just barely got the grout done today! I have outlets and one switch to change out for new ones. We have a kick board to install and fill back to the floor tile. A couple handles on the sink doors and general cleanup! Here's some pics.

First one was this morning.

Thanks guys! I'm just getting burned out on driving to Tulsa every day! They are working on widening 169 Hwy just South of Owasso and it takes 45 minutes  minimum to get through there! That should have been done 15 years ago!

Looks good! I thought about attempting a tile back splash in my kitchen. Never laid tile on a wall before.

Those cars are neat. Polaris slingshot. They had a demo day at the Polaris shop last year. I got to drive one.

Wall tile is a bit harder as you need to let some lower ones dry to support the upper ones. Paul uses a stair step pattern to get them going. Plus putting grout on under cabinets is a bit harder to do. But not much different otherwise.

Just got back in from moving furniture today! Left at 8AM. I'm wore out! Also had to change out 5 fluorescent light ballasts! But I got $30 worth of gas and $100 bucks!

Saw a PK, but they wanted $500 for it. Looked like 4 flat tires and setting a long while! I'd go maybe $100 on it!

That's more money than I made today Kenny.  Most of my days lately just cost money for repairs & such.

Got another shot of $ coming in. Got 4 sheets of barn metal to put on the end of the lean-to we built a while back. Then, bring home his Ford 8N to change out the crank shaft pulley and see what's up with the bolts holding it together there.

Got the metal hung. tried to start the tractor. Seems it doesn't like damp weather very much! Winched it up on the trailer and brought it home. Got here just before lunch. Tore it down and started putting it back together about 4:30PM. I'll get it all back together tomorrow.

Did you find the problem?

We cleaned the plugs. Pulled the plug wires out of the cap and one was corroded pretty bad. Cleaned the rotor tip and inside the cap. Checked the points, they look good. Before we put gas back in, I'm going to go get a couple gallons of non-ethanol to try starting it on. I will recommend he get new plug wires and cap for it.
