I walked 2 1/2 miles. Adjusted the new driver's door on my Sunbeam Alpine and disassembled the old drivers door to change out the innerds. Took my Toyota Highlander in for routine service. I don't work on my Toyota's.

Went for a bike ride for about an hour and 10. Picked up a power rake, ran it over the front grass, and got most of the moss out. Green binned the moss. Returned the power rake. (Will get some topsoil tomorrow then seed the lawn.) I then phoned around and searched the interweb to find out if the fuel lines from the frame rail up to the TBI on my '88 Chevy crew cab are available as one is leaking -they aren't.

It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it.

I watched our local college baseball team give one game to a lesser team though errors. It must have angered them though because they came back a run-ruled the other team in the second game. The local college is my alma mater. I graduated there before these young men's parents were born. I like to hang around practices and go to home games.

Went to "work" today -- Spent the better part of the day behind the wheel of the 357 Peterbilt. Will be back at it again Friday, only in the 359 smile

Put the log splitter to sleep for the summer and fired up the lawn mower today
Also fired up the wood furnace because of cold weather the next two nights.
Breakfast with some nuke retirees tomorrow and then lake side to unload that jag of hickory and white oak.

I replaced the floor in a old Wilderness Travel Trailer ,,and what I did was take out windows on both sides and run 4x 4's across thru them un- fastened the lower cuboards from the floor and raised them up with the whole sides and top ..pulled the trailer out from under the top part and replaced the whole floor and put it all back together .. it was a lot of work ,but I learned it from another guy and wanted to do it .. I also put in a few more joist in the floor that it had ..

This is in reply to Tuts 59

Huge day here -- Had a very nice chat with the lady in our county land use permits office about how to get started on my buiding permit for the 30x40 detached garage I want to build here at the new Stovebolt HQ. Found out that what I want to do is possible! This is big because the new Stovebolt HQ is within the Chesapeake Bay Critical Zone -- meaning building permits are vastly more complicated and convoluted and harder to obtain. But after walking her through my back of the envelope rough concept, she gave me a thumbs up -- meaning it would not be a waste of time to submit the request for the permit. And, get this, after she pulled up my property on her computer, and looked at what I had figured, she gave me an additional 1,000 sq ft of impermeable surface to work with! Barring any pop-ups, it is very likely my request will be approved. And as long as I can keep the total disturbed area under 5,000 sq ft, I do not have to submit an additional storm water management plan. smile Meaning that we might get the permit back in about 12 months and can get started then.

Woo Hoo!!! Charlie is getting a home of his own!!
