Donna & I were up early ,about 06:00AM, had out coffee then Donna started on a baking project, she also committed the recipe to the first installment of the Sunday Blog.
I made a trip to the grocery store, I know we are having chicken breast, and Donna is going to bake me a sugar free apple pie, to go along with the sugar-free vanilla ice cream, and the sugar free whipped cream. I almost can’t wait for supper to get here. Is this a great country or what?
The weather is a little better with the temp showing 88 degrees at noon, supposed to get close to 95 later, but a chance of thunderstorms might cool it down some later.
The rest of the week it shows the lower 90’s so I will try to get a hold of Adam and maybe plan a trip to the Lake with him. It’s Nicole’s week with her dad so she will have to wait, Her Mom said it had been too hot all week to camp and swim.
Don’t know if I finished the story of my 18 year old Red Max Weed eater, I finally got all the parts and rebuilt the carburetor , plus the new gas lines I had already told you about, my Son Andy took it out on a job and came back and said, Dad this thing is amazing it runs like a new one, but you need to put a new gas cap gasket on it as it drips fuel while your cutting. I went to the place where I bought it and they looked it up and said they couldn’t even order a new cap or gasket since they went to a new style several years ago. I then had to go home and fabricate, I trimmed the old gasket where it was ripped and then found an O ring that fit inside the cap and put it all together and no leaks. So maybe in a couple years I will have a 20 year old weed whacker. The guy at the Lawn service store said it is unusual for them to last that long that about 10 years is the average life before there all carboned up and useless. I just make sure I don’t bog it down and replace the plug every spring, 2 cycles are hard on spark plugs.
Anyway I hope everyone had a great weekend, we are looking forward to some cooler weather. be safe out there, Sam & Donna.
