Work and play
It was cool out when I got it going today, but I decided to tough it out and started working on my motorcycle carrier for my van.
Renter’s leaky faucet
I took a short break then went over to check up on our renters as they have some kind of small leak in the washing machine faucets or something, but no one was home.
Back to work making levers
I needed another set of levers and didn’t seem to have what I had in mind in available metal so I finally decided to make what I needed by welding two pieces of metal together to form angles.
Here’s how the base goes
Need to check the hill roads
I needed to check the roads up in the hills for any erosion problems from the last rain as it was a hard one, the first this year.
I was trying to figure out what to ride up the hill. If I rode a motorcycle I wouldn’t be able to take a shovel to fix any problems I might fine, but I could take a shovel on a quad runner, so what I decided was to take the motorcycle and if I found some problems I’ll take the quad up tomorrow and fix them.
Motorcycle battery needs charging
My brother Mike wanted me to charge his bikes battery so I started off on it taking some tools to fix the faucet if they were home, but they weren’t.
I need to come back with a shovel
I saw a couple spots that can use some shovel work, so I’ll have to come back, maybe even in the rain as that can be fun.
Checking our water tanks
Not able to check out the leak
I continued on home stopping to pick up my tools but still no one home so I couldn’t check out the leak. Hope it’s a real small one.
Finished up the day grinding
There was still some daylight left as the days are getting longer. What to do. I decided to do some more grinding on all my metal parts for the cycle carrier so I spent the rest of the day grinding away. Not a lot of fun but taking sharp edges off things makes them much friendlier so as not to get cut or hurt later.
That was my day for a good one, got a few things done which is always good.
