Finishing up the furnace job
My brother Barry was bringing over a 4 wire thermostat that he would pick up on his way over this morning.
Right away the lady says I can smell it burning. It was all new so it was just burning off whatever was on the electric burners and would soon stop. All fixed, finally.
Ok, time to play. My brother brought over his dirt bike so I went home and got my other brother Mike’s dirt bike and joined him.
Barry is a retired surveyor so he’s always checking things out with maps and stuff.
Too steep for me
We rode some more and Barry wanted to go up this one steep hill I didn’t really want to go but I did. I was going up one hill and got going too slow and lost it and tipped over near the top. But it was too steep to get started or push it to the top so I slowly backed it down the steep hill using the front brake to stop it. I could hardly walk on the hill and by the time I got to the bottom my body was complaining a bit.
Enough of that
When I caught up to Barry I said that’s the last time on that hill for me, I’m just not as young as I used to be. :O) At least I’m still doing it.
Puttering in the yard
After resting up I went outside and chair hopped and puttered around the yard doing little things here and there and not working too hard.
In the evening I rounded up some wire that I think I can use to put around my rhubarb to keep the chickens out. It looks like it will work. Now I just need to find a fence post and pound it in, maybe tomorrow as it was getting dark, but nice out.
That was it for me today.
Nice dirt bike ride giving me much exercise.
