Trying To Get Stuff Fixed and Puttering Around the Yard

Sunday November 13, 2022 Guerneville CA.

Putter day

That’s the kind of day it turned out to be.

I broke my mirror off my car the other day when my kayak fell off while I was loading it up. I didn’t know I’d broken it off until I heard this thing rattling around on the way home, which turned out to be the broken mirror hitting the side of the car from the wind.

So, today I was going to take it apart and see what I needed to do to fix it as finding a new one wasn’t working out very well.mirror


I got it all apart and cleaned it all up. Epoxy it or get it welded up? It’s aluminum and I don’t have a welder for that, but my friend Joe does, so maybe I’ll see if he’ll weld it up for me as I don’t think the epoxy will hold it as well.

I put the mirror aside for now and will think about it, but right now I needed a break so I did some chair hopping as the sun warmed up the yard as it came over the hills to my East.


Something has been eating my avocados. I thought it might be the rats and it was a bushy tailed one. A small red squirrel seems to be the one as I caught it coming down the tree with a game cam.squirrel


I might have to put something around the trunk of the tree to stop that if it keeps it up.

Van’s windshield wipers

I’ve tried twice to buy new wipers for the van and both times the mounting part wasn’t right. Seems the van is getting old and they don’t seem to be making some of the older stuff or at least it’s not so easy to find the right thing.

I spent a good deal of time looking for some adapters for it and  maybe I’ve found some and need to get them ordered up.

Other than that, I just puttered around the yard with the chickens, going from chair to chair, just like I always do.

Fresh rock fish

I had crab for dinner and shortly after that, my brother Tom brought  me by some cleaned and bagged fresh rock fish. Seems he likes to fish in the ocean a lot which is also good for me. :O) He’d been out all day and just got back.

Nice day.

    There you go, having a brother show up with something good again. Meanwhile, you’ve got eggs and avocados. Or at least when the varmints aren’t after them. Not a bad deal. I am envious. Hope your back kink has been better today.
