Funny how the snow muffles sounds. Same thing with gun shots. Heavy snow you can't hear squat over 50 yards, besides everybody else is inside with their ears covered!

Looks like she won't be shoveling much snow for a while. Hope everything knits well. run away… Cool

Don't want to take this thread off track but.....

Thanks for the well wishes. Update on Lynn is as follows. Surgery last Friday. Couple hrs and 4 sheetrock screws. Well that's what it looks like in the xray. Very little pain so shes off the Narcotics and only on Tylenol. Looks Great in the xrays. They will have to take out the 2 screws that are holding everything in place by holding the tibia and fibia together. Other 2 that are holding the tip on the tibia that holds the ankle together. They will stay. Stitches out Monday and then a cast I believe. Thanks again for the well wishes.

Steve got to keep working so cant run away no matter how much I'd like to.

No way on Seattle, no sunshine there. Temperate climate indeed but not enough sun. I will do an Alaska run some day, maybe see you on the way.

Dana, glad to hear the mechanics got a good patch job going on Lynn's bad wheel. Hope things continue well. Heck, she's young she should heal in time to finish that driveway before the spring thaw. ROTFLMAO

I don't want you to think I'm having too much fun. On the way down here, the front seal started leaking, the right rear disc is grinding, and the microwave died.

Replaced the Sharp microwave/convection oven. (Separate thread here)

Today I did one of the other projects that I already knew about. The left rear HWH leveler broke last summer. I replaced it with one of the front ones I removed long ago. Now both the rears work again.

Tomorrow my brake parts will arrive, I will post both projects when done. mechanic

Steve,

Probably ultimately from St. Jerome's saying: fac et aliquid operis, ut semper te diabolus inveniat occupatum.

Idle hands are the devil's workshop. Mischief
