    After a chilly start i ran for a battery for the 64 which led to emptying out the trailer to get to it.
    Then after taking care of that it was time to pay attention to the trailer as a wire broke for one of the side marker lights last year After that battle was over it was time to fix the rusty lip around the trailer door which needed all the rust and old weatherstrip scraped off ,then painted that . Will need to buy some weatherstrip for it yet but the worst part is done. Then we had a car accident out front of the house yet again , people are in so much of a hurry and just do not pay attention. Then painted the inside of the rear trailer door with some of the left over truck bed paint from the 210. The tires keep spinning try to get up that ramp even on the slightest incline or being a little wet. It covered well but time will tell if it helps. Then I broke down and finished with a frosty. So it was just nice to be outside in the sun with the radio on. Tomorrow it's time to pay attention to the yard.

    Sounds like a day. Had a soccer game this morning then did yard work. Cut some brush back, and had the yard roller out where the stupid garbage truck keeps driving in my yard.

    Spent my day just like the last three sitting in a hospital room with the wife. But she is doing much better now so tomorrow I will spend some time working on 200 parts.

    No she is still in, hoping for a Monday discharge but not sure. She has some friends going in to visit after church so she told me not to come in until this evening.

    Decided to clean up leaf debris and sticks and just Winters leftovers so I used the Black Sheep to hall around the cart it worked good for awhile. It shut off up the road while emptying the cart. After a few words of encouragment were expressed in its direction I walked back home for tools and then got it running. Finished up that chore and decided to roll the Yard and thought I'd again use the Black Sheep that did not last long luckily I was closer this time. Decided to leave it in the garage and started up the 64 and started rolling with that finished my yard then to the neighbors got half way done his when it shut down and would not start. Pushed her back home and finished with the GT 235 rarely does it leave me down. My other elderly neighbor wanted the garden tilled and last year his walk behind beet me up good. So on to the RF 112 with the tiller. WOW did I enjoy that. Needless to say it worked great not bad for half way worn tines. Atleast the day ended better than it started because the 64 then also started right back up. Will tinker with those two this week. Have a great week my friends

    Hey Don, how's momma doing?
    Sounds like quite the day Kyle. At least it ended on a good note!
    I had the oldest on the 216 on Saturday doing some yard rolling. She loved it.
    It was a beautiful weekend.

    Got to play on the round fender this morning. It appears I did to good of a job tilling my neighbors garden now he wanted more done because his wife (she loves me not sure why) wants to plant peas this year and our other neighbor wants to put tomato plants in there. Yeash , and I don't even like veggies!!! It was fun to use it but with parts NLA I get a little worried. Have to say after all those troubles with that Tecumseh engine it sure does run good now.
