I thought I was busy just cutting firewood and keeping or trying to keep up my houses. I have a garden every year and have a small green house. I have been trying to figure out how to grow wild huckleberries. I have not raced my dirt bikes in a while will have to race in the 70 year class. My grand daughter is already out of med school and she is quite busy too. ThanksNothing new.
I like to watch sumo.
Play with my kids.
Ultimate Frisbee with my older boys and a bunch of other kids from our homeschool group.
A bit of gardening.
A bit of ‘farming.’ I have a half-empty lot in town. I planted some wheat there, threshed and winnowed it. Haven’t quite finished it to eat, though. I also planted 24 Christmas trees there.
Bird feeders and hummingbird feeders.
And, of course, making more kids.
Many years ago my father began rebuilding player pianos. He and I worked on one together. Had to replace the fabric on the pneumatics for the keys(88) as well as the vacuum motors. I then set up the action and learned to tune it. You see the motor on the left that drives the rolls. Those two valves have to be perfectly timed 180 deg apart so it turns smoothly. That was 1984 and it still plays nicely today. There are a couple repair dates on the harp - around 1927.
