An oh, oh
I’d just sat down to my computer to see what the crazy rest of the world was doing when my phone rang. It was my brother Barry asking me to come out front and help him with something.
I went out front and found him sitting in his truck with his left leg propped up on the open drivers side window.
He asked if I’d take his chainsaw stuff out of the back of his truck.
The ouch story
Turns out he was falling a tree up in the hills and miscalculated and the tree butt hit him in his left knee on the side. He said his leg was all red by the knee but didn’t think any bones were broken but he didn’t think his knee was right so he’d called the VA advice nurse and was waiting for a call back of what to do to get it checked out. With this virus thing they are doing stuff different so he wasn’t sure where to go.
He drove on off and I went back in the house to finish getting it going for the day.
Dozer shutoff solenoid repair
I removed the shutoff solenoid as I suspected it was bad not letting the dozer start up.
Testing the solenoid
I took the solenoid home and put the meter on it to test to see if it was good or bad.
As usual I puttered around the yard watering my weeds and doing some chair hopping.
Getting some local info
Just before 5 I called John S. to see what’s going on around town and the river to see if I might go kayaking. He’d been around and said they are giving people tickets if they are parked along the road so that doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen.
He did say his wife Cheryl was making some face masks which are going to be required here soon so he said he’d put my name on one of them. It’s interesting that we are going to be required to wear face masks but the health workers have them all and there’s none to be had as far as I know.
Let the chickens out
Another nice sunny day.
