blah, blah, blah

Good morning.
Yesterday turned out so much better than forecast. How unusual that the weather person would be wrong. :-)
Instead of a 60% chance of rain, it was sunny and warm. Got all the way up to 70. Sooo with the nice day, I was productive.
First, I replaced all the levers in all the bay doors on the mo-ho.
Here's a pic of the new one and the old one.
See where the old one is very thin at the arrow? That's where 3 of them broke so far. They obviously don't have very good quality control where ever these were made. So with 13 bay doors, that left me with 10 to replace. Not a hard job. as there was a plate with 4 screws to remove, and the lever is right there with 1 screw. After that, I worked in the yard. Cut back all the pickerel rush and dwarf cattails in the pond, and cut down more perennials. I also raked the paved paths of all the pine needles and put then on the mulched paths.
I also looked on-line for replacement chairs and mats for the Salon. Our mats are starting to ripple along the edges, and the coating is starting to peel. The chairs for the most part still look good, but one has a couple of cracks in the vinyl and of course, after 13 years, that style is no longer available. And we can't have one chair looking different from the rest. I printed out a few styles and will get the staff's input as to which one we should get.
Then, for dinner, it was home made pizza. It was very good!
And with not much on regular TV, we pulled out a DVD, Starship Troopers. A real good movie!
Today, was to be a work in the yard day, as the forecast was only a 30% chance of rain, but it rained all night, and is currently raining right now, so not sure what the day will bring. Odd that the weather person would be wrong 2 days in a row. :-)
And while Craig sleeps in a bit, I'll go to the Salon with some flowers that I had still blooming in the yard.

  1. Obviously your weather person was just a day off. ;)

    We've watched Starship Troopers several times, and I read the book a couple times back in the 60s and 70s.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
