    Would wearing rain gear and a hardhat help?

    Too hot for a raincoat inside it and no chance of wearing a hard hat, there isn't enough room where we have to work it would fall off all the time, it would be impossible to do this repair if a hard hat was required...

    I work 5 days a week, rarely do I work on a weekend but in this case we had to work a Saturday to help minimize production losses...

    Monday turned into a 18 hours day, no lunch or dinner, I was deep inside that machine for most of the time replacing the rest of the hydraulic seals, but the work is done now...I got home about 30 minutes ago, not going in to work tomorrow until about noon or so, eating some dinner now at 11:40 pm...Kobi waiting patiently at home, he is also eating his dinner now...

    Wish me well today. I am going in for surgery to remove an implant that hasn’t been working for me since they placed it last July 2019. This implant was supposed to reduce my spine pain. Instead I got an infection that has never cleared up.

    I hate operations (and I have had quite a few). When you are in your late 60s everyone of these is a crap shoot. The surgeon seems to think that this will go smoothly. I hate when they tell you that! Hopefully I will be home in a few days when they are sure the incision is healing properly.

    what started as a discussion about how much money my oldest boy is spending on magic cards. ended with him giving me one of his decks and him teaching me how to play the game. the twins know the game so this could turn into a competitive family fun event.
    I even gave Ian money to enter a magic tournament..
    I am getting soft.. lol

    I have this star's name running around in my head for some reason. It's one of the stars on Orion's belt.

    I finally had to download Firefox browser because YouTube was just a blank screen. They had a warning message up for over a month stating they would no longer support IE. I really like it because it's modern, quick and easy to use. You have to agree to them using cookies in order to use it.

    The operation went successfully (so far.) I need to stay in the hospital a few more days to make sure the infections were found and cleared up. Needless to say, the hospital is the last place I wish to stay. I got zero sleep last night. I won’t even discuss the food. There is a round the clock group of people checking up on you. Getting home looks awfully inviting.

    Season 4 Episode 1.

    Been busy over the winter. Repaired a laundry list of things and stuff. Just took it for a spin to get the flat spots out of the tires and this thing's running smoooooth. Right now I'm reeking of gas and oil and loving it (to quote Agent 86). Couldn't find any anti-coronavirus sanitizer at the store? Try 93 octane.

    Just have to adjust the parking brake. Very importantly, I set the clock so the season is officially started

    Just wanted to take my dog out to conduct her business this morning. Big raccoon up in a tree giving us the finger driving her nuts. Interrupted her concentration necessitating a second trip once it gets a bit lighter.

    And then the coyotes vocalizing. Always heard them but this morning they were numerous and very close. Not worried about being attacked really - no history of any of that around here as long as I can remember. Concerned at the unusual proximity. I do wonder what they were ON about this morning. Short list; fighting, f*****g, food.
