A normal start for today, up at 04:30am, coffee, Then Donna is off to the truck company, she has restaurant duty tonight, so it will be a long one for her, I haven’t heard from the bus company other than an overnight trip to Chicago for Friday was cancelled. Maybe I won’t get anything this week. Adam is off to school and it is another gorgeous day with a high in the 80’s predicted, I got my new Death Ray TV antenna yesterday so I will ask my son Andy to climb the ladder with it today the will be the big project for today. Good news, after dropping the deck, literally since it weighs quite a bit, I use a long pry bar to lift each side one at a time to get the rear pins loose. I took the pulley covers off and discovered the belt had jumped from one of the keepers that are supposed to keep them on the belts, how it got past that little space I don’t know but that was what was binding and making the noise. Luckily Andy shut the deck down before the belt was ruined. I had to pull the pulley and keeper off and put it all back together right, and then it ran like a champ, I cut the 2 acres of grass just to make sure it was right. Only cost me some muscle and an hours time no money this time.
Here is the BIG Project in pictures.
Studying the job at hand.

Anyone needs amplified batwing parts they will be free to a good home.
Got a nice E-Mail from Dee & Jim of the Tumbleweed’s blog, they are in Scott Air Base Fam Park, and will be going to Troy MO later in May, They want to meet up with us and we are going to try to reserve a Sunday which is the only day Donna is off completely. I hope I will be home one Sunday from bus trips, But we are going to try our best to meet these good folks, They are new to full timing so we will pick their brains, since we haven’t started yet.
Well that’s about it for today, be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
