Knee surgery Thursday afternoon, arthroscopic (I have no idea if that's spelled correctly) and I swear to you it has not hurt as much as a mosquito bite since I woke up from the anesthesia.

But it will slow down the polishing a bit, as The Sarge says "Now you take it easy on that knee! What would the doctor say?!? Yadda, yadda, tadda..."


P.S. markdoane: Black POR-15 for your frame - bulletproof!

Unhappy Staying home this weekend

Getting hitched in May, '03 and went looking for a home. Not a lot of room for selection when you are a teacher and live in L.A. THe market for a home is extremely difficult to afford. Considering living out of a Pacer!
Just kidding!

took out the tambour enclosure that creates a "cabinet" over the fridge...what it really does is wastes alot of space. anyway, now there's room for a microwave, so we can easily zap food for Jr....gotta keep the wife happy, so she'll go camping with me to the last rally of the season next weekend. (how about you, Yukionna? going to Greenfield?)

got the idea fom RJ's photo archives...look at the pics for the 73 safari 23.....

Oh, yeah: gotta replace the gasket on the door, and then its off to the fair thisafternoon....

No, I wasn't planning on it because of the rally fee structure. The rally fee structure doesn't offer any pro-rating; it is one price for 3 nights / 4 days (i.e., Fri - Mon) but we can only go for one night (Sat).

Axle is now on the Argosy, and new tires. It is cleaned and ready to go next weekend.
Terry and crew are tired, but the deed is done.

When people lie to you, and refuse to honor their word, don't regret trying to follow a dream, new adventures and friends await you.

Getting Rid of Pesky Buckthorn

Repositioned the Airstream in the recently expanded parking area to get it out of the way of the snow plowing this winter--all 400 ft. of driveway! Got to finally test the running lights, brake lights, backup lights, and turn signals. Found a few bulbs out. At least I hope it is bulbs. Put in a new battery just in time to have to take it out for the winter. Needed to replace the old corroded connectors. Everything seemed OK and tested out.

What I really did mostly was take a chain saw to my woods and cut down dead trees and buckthorn. Some of the buckthorn was ancient with 6" trunks and over 30 ft. high. Most I can pull out by the roots. When I first bought the property 27 years ago I could not walk through it because of the over growth. In between I caught snatches of another Minnesota Gopher win, Vikings win, two losses by the Twins, and Ryan Newman's 8th NASCAR win.

Mother In -Law's birthday, but spent a week in Wis. last week. Then, I usually need a few weeks to repair the little bits that broke off the old girl. Maybe get one more weekend before the parks close.
