Glad it was easy to find and hopefully the new flywheel will fix it!

Did not work on the rag top today but went to the cruise in Cleveland, Tn.

This little gem was there. The patina is not fake. This little jewel is a real piece of history. I know I had to make it rust more because I just slobbered all over it.

trains trains and more trains. My daughter has expressed a liking to trains and Thomas the Train books/cartoons. So today we went to Old Sac and took the old touristy train along the river and afterwards went to the train museum. Then ended the day with a good sub sandwich place I knew of in the area. My daughter had a blast! Raising kids is awesome cause things you wouldn't normally care for are all of a sudden exciting and fun because you're doing it for your daughter/ son and you can see their face light up and it's the best feeling ever. Tomorrow it's back to the river cause she loves sand and water and being on the beach. It will hit 100 too. Oh, and as we were leaving Old Sac I crossed paths with Jason Thompson, a star player for The Sac Kings. That was pretty cool. He saw that I noticed him and quickly turned into a store cause I think he thought I was gonna ask for an autograph but I was just trying to tell my wife he played for The Kings.

Sounds like a great day Henry! Isn't that museum awesome? I love the super detailed train with pin striping all over and the lights on it like it's in a car show.

What did I work on "today", well it was yesterday now.

Soooooooooo, the door bell hasn't been working for a while, yesterday I jumped into getting this very simple contraption ding dongging again. I went up in the attic with my volt tester and found exactly what I thought I was going to, that the transformer wasn't putting out any power. Being both front and rear bells stopped ding dongging at the same time, this was a no brainer. I pulled back the tape off the wire going to the transformer and sure thing, 116 volts, but nothing coming out of the transformer. Off to Dale for a new one.

New transformer installed. Still nothing! WTH? Upon a little more checking, I found that it had the 116 volt at the old connection but not at the new connection to the transformer, there it had ZIP! You see, I cut the old leads from the old transformer to splice in the new one, so this meant the whole time there was nothing wrong with the transformer, it was the lead to the house wiring that was bad! GRRRRRR

I figure I will leave the new transformer being it's installed. I repair the lead, ok, 116 volt at the connection, STILL NO POWER coming from the transformer! WTH? I mean, come on now, WTH?

Could it be bad? I hook up the old one, STILL NOTHING! WTH?

Back to Dale with both new and old transformers. The guy goes back into the bowels of the ship to test it, comes back to me to tell me the new transformer was bad! But the old one is fine! WTH?

He brought me back in there to show me and yep, the old transformer is showing 24 volts.........seems I was testing that on DC thinking like it was a battery being it's such low volts, I don't know, I am a moron.

I came back, installed the OLD transformer and WHAM, DING DONG, DING DONG. The problem all the while was the broken lead going to the original transformer that I could have done in minutes. But check out the luck, the new transformer was bad! If I had been testing it on AC I would have figured that out when I tested the old transformer after fixing the wire, but I didn't think to hook it back to the door bell, I mean come on, I am head tech in THREE STOOGES HOME REPAIR, I have the volt meter to tell me if it's good.........the DING DONG I heard at the end was the door bell calling me names.

I don't know about the rest of these guys but the last thing I expected when I logged in this afternoon was to read about your ding dong.

with a newborn baby (3 weeks) I knew I had to stop working in the garage and dedicate lots of time to my daughter who got all the attention and nurture from her mother stripped away cause she had to tend to the newborn. I knew this would affect my princess so I made an effort to fill the gaps so to speak. I can get back to metal shaping later. So today we went to the waterpark down the street. Perfect 100 degree weather. It's been a month since I last took her there and since then she has grown tall enough to go down the kiddie water slides. Man, that girl was in heaven. It was like she totally forgot I was there or had so much fun she didn't care to look over her shoulders for daddy's approval. She was totally into it. What a fun day. When I walked thru the front door she was in my arms sound asleep and bushed. Another awesome weekend with the princess.

The past 2 weeks have been all about organizing a fun open house for our son.




Good grief.....18 years gone by in the blink of a flash...



His Mom is already having separation moods about him going off to college in 2 months.
