Those loose leg spindle chairs. Tackled the problem again. Used the finish nail in the side of the joint method this time.
If only those fattys would stop breaking my chairs.

Dealt with the first half of 50 mulch bags in the plant beds. Will finish it off tomorrow. Good workout. Things turn green outside and I drop 8 pounds. Love it.

The fence is up around the garden! Now I just need to build a gate for it, get a bunch of garden soil/fertilizer, and a bunch of potting soil so I can get herbs and such in pots... yeah, Iím going to be playing in the dirt most of this weekend.

Saw 3/4 if an inch of muck water in the bottom of the dishwasher, so I took it apart and cleaned what I could. Then ran a rinse cycle.
All good.
It's the well water. Kinda red.

F-yeah! I fixed the a/c in my sister's car. The clutch pressure plate had become worn. I changed the clutch. Blows 36 degrees in an ambient of 83.

The throttle plate on the carb on my riding mower decided to take leave with the screws that held it in. The screws met a destructive end in the combustion chamber and the throttle plate lodged in the intake tube/manifold.

I replaced the carb and got the wild-looking front yard mowed by 8pm!

All totaled to about six hours.

Man, it feels good to figure something out and fix it again!

Nice Work twocubs!


I did about 4 loads of wash, usual Monday food shopping, mowed the lawn, watched my daughter's softball team get beat and watched my son's volleyball team get beat much worse.

More time in the garden yesterday so I could soak up some of the nice weather. Moved stuff from seed planters in to the garden proper, and then got all the containers in the container garden and added fresh soil to them and have the herbs transplanted there. I still have more seedlings to transfer to the garden, but it doesnít look like the weather is going to cooperate with me today.

Started leasing a a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon last weekend so I spent yesterday taking off the factory rock rail and installing side steps. Also went for a run and mowed the lawn. Loved spending all day outside doing stuff.

Enjoy the Jeep 757! I love driving the one we got for my son. Did you get a 2018 with the new cool LED marker lights? I know they also started putting back up cameras on some models this year as required by law as well. Start waving to your fellow Jeepsters!
