Wednesday Musings .

Today is just about as good as a gets a bright sunny day and temps in the mid 70’s, lower humidity too.

The John Deere Tech was out right at 0800hrs yesterday, he had the neatest workshop trailer behind a pickup, about 20 feet long it had a work bench and tool boxes in the end, a lift to pick up the front of a tractor and electric power generator and air compressor, everything you would need to service a John Deere tractor. It sure beat trying to borrow a flat bed trailer and taking the tractor to the dealers. It only took him about 15 minutes to fix why the deck was jammed up. Silly me when I took the blades off to get the plastic string out that was jamming it I put one of them back on upside down, that jammed it up again. He saw that right away and buzzed it off and reinstalled in correctly and wham the deck was spinning like new, he recommended I go over to their shop and buy a new set of blades since one was bent, which I did after he left. I was lucky he only charged me 15 minutes labor($21) and a (50) service fee for coming out. So I was happy too. Will certainly be more careful now when I install the new blades, didn’t know it would only work if they were installed one way.

Donna was off all day and made a batch of cupcakes for a friends 4th of July party, in a patriotic theme, they were arranged in a US Flag design. She is so handy with cakes and the like.


Today she is working the night watch at Walgreens, Rigg’s and I have the homeland security detail here at the ranch.

When my Son Andy gets home I will ask him to give me a hand putting the blades on and then I will be ready for the rest of the summer.

Nothing much else going on here today. Hope everyone is well out there in blog land. Be safe. Sam & Donna……..
