Morning all!

74* here,,,, 5 MORE WORK DAYS TO GO!

Charles, your building looks great. You will enjoy having that for years to come.

Tim, can't tell what that substance is in the pictures? Possibly Marine Tex? Is it really , really hard,,,, like rock hard?

Frank, glad the Kayaking went well. Next time you pass by here the 4 of us can go. Debbie and I have 2, The Catawba river near here has about a 7 mile section that is a nice Kayak ride, no civilization, no rapids, ( a few riffles) just a lazy float.

Work day today, then this evening get ready for the mud bog tomorrow. Just gotta get the trailer out, and load our little Kawasaki Mule we use around here. Our friends suggested we bring it to have transportation around the event location. It is many acres, and there are many mud holes. I'll take a few pics.

Have a great day all!

L.

Tim,
I would grind away the paint in the depression of the crack, then start layering in the mesh or cloth to strengthen the area. I would remove the taillight assembly and rebuild that area if it was me, that way you know it is fixed correctly, and not just cobbled together, and that no water can get in behind the assembly.

morning
currently 66
I think I have posted more this morning than ever.
Bad news on the toe, Did you know that your big toe is called the "Great Toe" in medical terms. Learned that just now from my MRI report. Bone infection also called "Osteomyelitis"
So the treating doc is contacting the Surgeon to see what options are. No loping off of said toe. yet
Have a Great weekend,
Tim

I agree with Lloyd , it looks like Marine Tex , that's a putty like Bondo but made for wet repairs , You can sand it but will lose the shine . AND Frank too , I'd get it all out and do fiberglass as in Terry's video. The PO did a real Mickey Mouse looking job. No knowing how well he prepped the area and if it might just fall off some day..
Take your time and it will all look great (you don't have to do everything the same day), and you can brag you did it yourself !
Tell the Doc's that if they cut off that toe , you know just where you'll put it !
Just kiddin' do whatever is best for your health!

Rail
Wow you didn't tell us Jira was a princess ! That statue in the museum looks just like her......

Nothing is going to compare to fiber internet , you probably have better service than most of us do here.

Lloyd
Just a week to go ! Yessssssssssssss.
Then you graduate to "old fart" like me !
The weekend sounds like I want to be there ....lots of pic plezzzzzzzz..

bap
Maybe you can get a tat of a zipper to cover the scar???????
Either way hope they can get you back to "normal" (the quote's are because I never was !)
Hammer down ! We'll let ya know if we see any smokies !

Frank
Maybe next trip , strap an extra life jacket on just in case ?
Seriously , inflate it and keep it on land for a day or go wading with it and look for the little bubbles to test for leaks

cwk
Looks like you have a busy week ahead.

Did I miss anybody ? I forget when reading so many posts.

Uh OOOOHHHHH the site want's me to do a capcha before I can post.
Of course there is NO capcha there !!!!!

Morning all;
Had a great day with the Grand Daughter yesterday. Planted a bunch of spruce trees and a few pine trees. Keeping up with her is making me tired!

Today is lawn mowing. Lots of stuff to keep me busy. Am thinking about getting a job so I get paid for all of this work.

BAP and Tim. Take care of yourselves Do what is necessary to stay healthy and happy.

Popeye - good to see you posting again.

Frank - your kayak story gave me some memories about an engineer I worked with. He was assigned an R&D project to see what could be done about beavers building dams on road culverts. He decided he needed to understand the mindset of a beaver and to do so he was going to visit a beaver house.

Told him he should go rent a aluminum boat or a good heavy duty zodiac. No he said they were too expensive so he went to the local department store an purchased a two cell kiddie blow up raft. I said to him the raft is only rated for 110 lbs and you are 115 lbs. He said that the engineer who designed it would have built it with a 10% (min) safety factor so it was fine. He had tried it and there was a couple inches of freeboard.

Anyway he went out to the beaver dam, launched the raft and proceeded to paddle out to the beaver house to commune with the beavers. Unfortunately there were some dead snags just below the surface in the pond which promptly punched a hole in one of the two cells. No mind melding that day. One bedraggled engineer.

Have a grand day.

Evening all!

Well, now it is 4 work days to retirement. Next Thursday June 30th is my last day.

Tim, bone infection don't sound good. Praying for you. You need that big piggy.

Gordon, good story. My brother in-law and I went canoeing in a wood canvas canoe. Short story, hit a rock and ripped the canvas, and it sunk pretty quickly.

Good Evening Gang,
Gordon,
Great Story, Love it.
Popeye,
Don't know what happened with the Kayak, it wasn't down that much air, so the bubble test probably wouldn't work. There are multiple one way air valves and I might not have gotten one of them tightened all the way.
Tim and Bap,
Good Luck with your health problems, we hope that everything works out for the best.
Lloyd,
Have a great time at the Mud Bog, Only 4 days, that is wonderful news. We will take you up on the Kayak trip next time we are through that way.
Rail,
Those are sure great places that you have the pleasure of visiting, you are one lucky man.
Have a great evening all,
Frank

Thanks Popeye. No the deal is we pay her. Playing like real life. She negotiates her pay increases and we make her justify what she asks for.

Back is not too bad. The spruce trees are all sizes from 1 - 5" tall. The pine on the other hand are older and all are over 4' tall. I run the tree 'spade' all around the perimeter and then when the wedge is loose, lift it into the wheel barrow by hand. Gave them all a good drink with rooting fertilizer so hope they take. Was sunny this morning but showers in the afternoon and now raining.

Gordon, "Aleve", is your friend!
Thanks Frank, looking forward to the kayaking! SP?
Lloyd, man, you are getting close! Woo Hoo!!

Good Morning!

76* here. Partly cloudy.

So, if I retire this coming Thursday, and after that everyday is a non-work day....... would this be my last weekend? Cause going forward I don't care what day it is?

Everything is loaded for the Mud Bog, will take some pics.
