I was talking on the phone today and the voice was getting garbled on and off, so I called and made an appointment with the phone company for Thursday to see about getting it fixed.
My brother Tom said he had some extra red seed potatoes and I should plant some. I went over and got some and planted these. I think I should get some more and plant them too.
I was taking a nap when there was a knock at the door. It was the phone guy, two days early. I explained the problem and also the internet problem I’ve been having with drop outs for over a year now that they couldn’t get fixed for all that time. He checked everything out and it all looked good. The problem has been intermittent all along which makes these kinds of problems hard to fix. It’s still not fixed. He thinks it is likely back at the office in some equipment, so passed the information along to them. I thought he did a good job, just the same.
See, too high, and all I got was the beak of a raven. I’ll have to go back up there and adjust it. With the water there making a lot of noise, I think I’ll eventually get some good pictures of the wild life around here.
Bit of a problem
When I went to leave, I tried to start the dirt bike but nothing happened. It was all downhill to home from there so I was able to start it on compression as this bike doesn’t have a kick starter.
The same wire had broken off again. But this time it was too close to the socket so I didn’t have any wire to solder the broken wire back on to. I had to run a jumper wire around the socket and solder it on to fix it.
I’ll need a new ignition switch with the socket to fix it better. I looked online, and a new switch was over a hundred bucks so maybe I’ll live with my fix.
