I’m down at the county superior court trying to get an injunction in the 97 red ranger. I’ll let you know what happens, but I have to keep at least one ranger until this is over, none of the Lincolns and the F250 fit in the parking garage, and I’m too beat up to park far away!!!

Fixed several EDC’s, but that didn’t fix the stuttering/shuttering and lack of power.

Cleaned an astonishing amount of filth out from under the toolbox. When stuff starts to sprout in it..... maybe should have cleaned it a bit sooner!

Pulled the hi lift off the mount in the bed to jack up the tongue of my disk. Got fiberglass in my hand from the topper.

Good times.

Bought clear door edge guards. My garage and the retaining walls in my driveway are kinda tight. All of our vehicles get them, along with Bugflectors. No scratches and paint chips allowed on my rides. I just got it last Saturday and already waxed it twice, one coat of Mother's and one coat of RivStar Show Car Glaze. :)

Ordered brake shoes, cylinders, and the return spring thingy that holds the adjustment pawl for the parking brake.

One wheel cylinder leaking, shoes nearly worn out, and the return spring thingy that I just replaced a few months ago.... evidently got a little too hot when my son drove it with the parking brake on, and now no longer has any tension..... Grrrrr.........

Oh well.

They say the pollen count is dangerous when it goes over 125 - 150. In Atlanta today, and we’re just at the beginning of the season, it was 2,045. I’ve been distracted by the legal stuff, no time for the Rick-storation, but now I’m curious to see how many days it will take for the black and the red and the yellow stripe to completely blend under the pollen. This is two days worth:
