right you are friend last year had a bunch of insulation replaced some dry wall and kiltz painted on that corner. Now its even worse damage cause it was a big lot of water. I am in hopes that damage wasnt too bad since it was one soaking fast not like last year where it leaked for months fore we found it. That gave the mold time to spread. contractor coming in a few days and a minor inconvenience our stove was back ordered and the order to a different lowes. causing over a week delay it is supposed to be delivered today but you have heard me say that before. no stove for a country boy is no biggie, but kinda hot and humid to cook out side.

I need to go finish cutting the yard, go to the store, etc etc but here I sit waiting on the stove delivery. Wife feels sick so I need to be here and not wringing wet with sweat when they get here

That stuff will wait, wife comes first. I noticed when we went to purchase a new dish washer, Lowe's doesn't keep appliances at their store. You have to have it delivered. What a world.

Slept a couple of hours this morning, and then hauled off 2 loads of brushIMG_20220819_113644874_MP.jpg glad that's done. The catalytic converter got delivered for Christine, but I'm to tired to fool with it today.

About 4 this morning, while I was at work, I thought I would take the canoe with me when I hauled off the brush. I thought I would stop at the river for a little paddling, eh well that didn't happen. Always make big plans when I'm wound up at work. Then I'm just to wiped out when I get home.

I too over plan I forget I aint young and energetic no mo. I sit dreaming of what I will be doing tomorrow wake up the next day and pray that I have strength to get up after several cups of coffee and once the dew dries I try to do, work hard as I can get drenched with sweat come in to take a break and have some water only to see I was at it for 20 minutes only. oh well I just keep plodding along barely getting a fraction of my plans done. Thats a typical day go for a paddle on the way home would be beyond me. God bless you for thinking of it. So I waited till 3pm for the stove called lowes after 3 tries holds and disconnects I finally heard from a robo-gal that the order was not ready yet expected date next Friday o_O:( oh well I have plenty gas for my camp stove and well know how to use it. It's hot and humid for cooking outside but that makes a cold beer taste better

It's got to be really hot and muggy where your at Cappy. When I'm off from work, like today, I get up and do what I need to, or want to, but when it hits noon I'm shot. I'm ready to call it quits for the day. The hotter and humid it is, the more I'm done early.

Replaced the catalytic converter on the car this morning IMG_20220820_071232612.jpgIMG_20220820_080437772.jpg I'm hoping this resolved the problems with Christine. My wife didn't like me calling the car that. Humph I hate that car.

Oh Wow! All I had was a salad. Whaa. I think I smell it Cappy. Killing me, and I got to get ready for work. A Burger King burger just wouldn't do.

Still picking at my canoe paddles. My wife's paddle is ready for glassing the bladeIMG_20220706_171806741~2.jpg While sanding the shaft on mine, I found a few voids. My laminating job didn't turn out so well, so I thickened some epoxy and filled the void. I taped around the area to help with cleaning up the epoxy around the repair area.IMG_20220830_141223248~2.jpgIMG_20220828_134747857~2.jpg Maybe tomorrow. Oh I also started making a couple of seat backs for the canoe. IMG_20220828_134925183~2.jpg It's a work in progress. Hoping to have paddles and seat backs done in time for camping trip, in a couple of weeks.

Hello everyone. Not cooling off here much, but there is fall in the air. I glassed my paddle blades IMG_20220904_153927970~2.jpg I used 4oz fiberglass, but I should've used a 2oz or so. But sometimes ya use what ya got. IMG_20220906_192456990~2.jpg here they are after the 2nd fill coat. They are ready to sand, always lots of sanding ugh. Then I am ready for a good couple of coats of polyurethane. Next ones I make will be lighter, I've learned a few things .

My sister picked me up on her way to visit our Mom, and said she was going to stop and give blood. Ok I'm good with that, it's been awhile since I opened a vien. They gave us these cool and nifty dry bags IMG_20220905_110514_01.jpg Great deal!

Till next time, y'all take care.

I never did finish my seat back rests. I've got one almost weavedIMG_20220914_180712707~2.jpgIMG_20220914_181555247~2.jpg it helps to have a little belly to hold them when weaving. I'll take them with me, and maybe finish one of them while sitting around a campfire.

In a time of little to be happy about yesterday was a good day. We finally got a new stove in the hose its good to look at the hole in the kitchen and see shiny sitting there. took 2 trips to the hard ware store. stove in the suv needed a neighbors help and a dolly to get it into the kitchen when unboxed it barely fit in the door .......NO cord. :mad: back across the river through the woods to the hardware got there as they were locking up got the right cord at least and drove home easy install with a 1/4" nut driver got it wired in and covered back slid it in place and it worked!! 3 weeks no stove tried to get one from lowes delivered and got the run around big time, Got POed went to the big hardware picked out the stove and said we will take this one. DONE the ole country boy way brought home un boxed wiggled through the door with nary a scratch wired it up and slid it in and 5 minutes later pork chops were a frying! Very happy day. the mitigation people tore the house apart and got the magic phone call and email to get the ball rolling on the rebuild. sorry but I hadda tell some one I am struggling to loose weight and still slowly improving being able to do that yesterday was truly miraculous.
