Was up at 04:30AM and had coffee with my bride, and then she was off to the truck company. Rigg’s was already waiting for me on my bed for his after Mom leaves nap.
The rain stopped and the sun came out so I decided to go out and finish what I started on the fiver yesterday, the lines are all blown out and pink stuff added, the slide in in tight.I disconnected the the ac power, to the converter and connected the Maintainer directly to the two batteries. So now it will not boil them over the winter. This system worked great from Nov until march when I got the trailer started for our trip to Florida. last year.
Now all I have left is getting the cover on and I may wait until Kevin and Ruth get here since Kevin is skinny and my son is too. I won’t have to worry about to much weight up there and they can roll it out and I will tie it off at the bottom. If you remember I won this cover in a drawing from Kevin & Ruth Last year so this will be the first it goes on, it is still in the box brand new.
I will be batching it for supper tonight. Donna has been invited on a girls night out with one of the women that used to work with her. She looks forward to these nights, and God knows she can use the fun and relaxation. I will have my buddy Miller, ( High Life) here to keep me company so it won’t be bad.
I have already decided besides having to get John Deere out for some plowing, I am going to make sure we have enough rations in the pantry, so if we get snow, the truck will stay in the garage until the roads are clear. If my Son Andy is off work he can take John and go clear driveways in the subdivisions across and behind us, even at $15 dollars a driveway he can make some pretty good change and get a bunch of return customers from the older people. I equipped John with an orange flashing strobe light on a pipe behind the seat and it already had halogen headlights so he will be visible to anyone else out there in the snow.
Today the kid’s won’t shovel a drive for less than $20 or $30 and he can do a better job faster with the plow and a blower to clean up with.
That’s about it for today. I hope everyone is having a great week. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna….
