Happy wife because you ate the eclair like she told you :lol:. Yes, when it gets real dry in the summer and I have to go mow weeds I'll wear one.
hi chipper! ~ ... and I felt so guilty eating it, too! :rolleyes:

mask, mowing, dry - no doubt that makes sense!

G' afternoon all. Sunny & low 70s.

Below average temps for September; maybe it will snow by 3rd/4th week of Oct, like it did last year(Oct 31)
I liked that dog helper vid, SA! I could have used one of those when planting all that liropi.

Good morning. 49*/clear. Happy Double Cheeseburger day. Looks like a possible Hoodie day with temps struggling to get to 70. Off to the corn patch shortly. Have a great day guys.FS.
can you just imagine... a guy so hungry he had 2 of them! reminds me of the double mint ad: 'two mints, two mints, two mints in one!'

two meats, two meats... two meats in one! (cheeseburger)

for those with an extra active appetite today:

and don't forget a side of fries = to the same level of satisfaction!

Good morning everyone. It looks like fall is here. It's a cool 37 here this morning with a high of 67 in the forecast.

Good morning everyone :drinkingcoffee:. 48 here now and heading to 73 or 78 depending on who you trust :oops:.
Managed to get the yard mowed and a carb on the pressure washer(and it even ran great for a while), we had a bunch of company over early so I didn't get much else done so back to the list today. I had some problems getting the main jet out of the carb and by the time I was finished trying I had managed to break off an easy out in the carb, okay I'll try another carb. Well that one the needle wasn't in the hole for the seat which would cause the float bowl to overfill, and it did :(. Which in turn poured fuel into the cylinder and it hydro locked the engine, I pulled the plug and got all the fuel out of the cylinder and that's where it sits now. So the 20-30min carb cleaning is taking a few hrs :dizzy:. The carb cannot be removed without first removing the bolts that hold the engine to the cart as the carb is positioned facing the handle and you need about 3/8" more to get it past the studs, I'd trim the studs a little shorter, but there wouldn't be much left lol. I thought about turning the engine around on the cart(but it would make it hard to pull over) or using another cart I have. It's a new day full of new adventures :laugh:. Hope you all have a great day.
wow! :surprised3: sounds like a bit of a SNAFU day! yikes...

> I had some problems getting the main jet out of the carb and by the time I was finished trying I had managed to break off an easy out in the carb,

been close many times, or so it seemed! then double trouble!! was like that trying to get the bit of broken bolt threaded end out of frame nut for engine cover hold down bracket in van other day. I could see it just mite break! then I would have more problems than just drilling and tapping some reasonably mild stee! ~

I decided to clean the wood stove and chimney today,,, nothing went right!!!! Took about an hour to get a piece of soot out of my eye,,, tough to do when you need glasses to see it!!! Then I had to replace the stove pipes,,,another trip out... And the best part,,, one of the chimney brush rods came apart about ten feet up the chimney!!! Fortunately I was able to put a long thin bolt thru a plastic pipe and hooked it in a hole in the rod to pull it out,,, bet I couldn't do that again !
But,, it's done!!!!
