Lead follow or get out of my way
While one is taking down a carport... I got the roof trusses put together for mine. Today I get two thirds of the roofing put on so tomorrow I get some help over here to lift it up and get the legs under it.

The prep isn't as bad as it could be but isn't a fun time. Take advantage of the approved liquids you can still drink while purging the system. They help with the hunger. As far as the procedure, they put you under anesthetic. So, you don't have to experience any of that.

I opened the pool at the new house.

I had my right big toe nail removed and my left ankle got a platlet rich plasma injection done.

The doc said the prp procedure is way more painful and would hurt for two weeks. Nope, the toenail removal hurts still worse, the day after both were done.


And my truck is a manual so no driving it for a few days

I’m very comfortable with that level of detail. I don’t need to know any more…

Lincoln took me outside with his purple rabbit (w/yellow belly) to see how much of the yard has been mowed. Was very clear that I had to cut it all back to his fence. But no cutting yet today, memorial weekend fever.

This is pretty much it so far for today.

Got out with the intent of getting stuff done but started with trying to take care of some of the cherry thieves but the wind makes it hard to line up the crosshairs at the right time... got a few though... Then off to the Ranger, screwed around and got some paint and powder coat removed from the parts I'll need to weld and some rust that was in the way, nearing having things lined up to get at least the drivers side radius arm figured out tonight, have a general plan for the transmission crossmember...

We're going out for a fancy dinner here shortly, was going to go to some prom type thing but apparently the friends wives went sideways and twisted around and now I get out of the prom part? Whatever :)

Excruciating, torturous detail coming to your inbox. I'll see if I can find some video for you as well! You are welcome!

I know it’s no fun, and I shouldn’t make fun of it. Sincerely, I hope everything “comes out” OK after all this….

I didn't end up getting out of the prom thing, but it was at a Two Towns Cider distillery, not a bad time, expensive evening though, don't think I've paid $140 for dinner for two before...

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Don't you dare think you can stop him by apologizing. You’re doomed.

My nephew graduated from high school yesterday so they had a graduation party today.

My wife made this presentation for it. It is really nice and tastes good, ha ha ha.
