Too Many Projects Busy day, I got the wife's winter wheels washed and dried in the sun. Then I dropped the air pressure to 20 psi and drug them up the ladder to the storage rack.



I had soapy water left so I backed the Impala out and washed that too. It had black mold dried on it. Must have been stored outside with a tarp over it at some point in the past.







Then I mowed the yard for the first time. It is just a clean up cut, left a little high. We are way behind on rain too so I didn't want to cut it too short.



Then my neighbor brought his tandem axle dump truck over. He bought aluminum wheels for the rear but the studs are too short. He needed me to remove one to get longer studs. That entails removing both wheels and the brake drum. In the process of that, I discovered that his slack adjuster is seized and no longer working and the grease seal in the hub had failed. The brake shoes are saturated with gear oil. He'll be buying more than just 40 new studs. THEN he says it pulls really hard to the right when he applies the brakes. I said that sounds like an issue in the front brake, so I go up there and discover the bracket that holds the slack adjuster on the left front brake is broken right off !!! At that point, I told him to take it home, which is across the street, and don't even THINK about driving it until we get all this repaired. If he had an accident with his brakes that messed up, he would be in jail and lose everything he owned.

After that detour, I mixed up root drench and treated 4 trees in the front yard. Now I'm gonna sit on my butt for a few hours...

Today I will be busy with yard work. SPRING has sprung here. I need to root drench a bunch of trees against Japanese beetles and Ash Borer. Then I need to do the first clean up cut with the lawn tractor.

Last evening when we got home, I moved the Impala out of the shop and swapped out the wife's snow tires for the summer ones. I need to wash the wheels I took off, deflate the tires to 20# and get them back up on the storage rack.

I already called Summit about returning some parts and I will be boxing them up today too.
96! Happy birthday to her!

matts37chev I spent all day working at a disc golf course we built a few years back.
We are getting it race ready for our annual tournament on the 9th.
I think I over did it running the weedwacker, I can barely lift my right arm.
