Dave57210 Wife has a tooth bothering her. Dentist told her that she has to go get a COVID check/test before he will let her into the office, so today we took her for the test. We will know in a day or two if she has been exposed, and if not, then she can get to dentist before the week is out.

Meanwhile, I had volunteered for a testing regime where they check for COVID antibodies. (If you have been exposed or if you were asymptomatic)

That will happen this week, too.

Too Many Projects DAMN, you people losing friends and colleagues to this crap is sad and scary. My thoughts are with you and please stay careful.
We only know of 1 family that got it. It is a co-worker of my wife's but they were on home stay and got it from their other family members.

My wife has been working from home for almost 4 months now and is dreading EVER having to go back to commuting for work.

We removed our bent up, groaning garage door on the house today and put up the new one. WHAT a world of difference, not just in how nice and quiet it runs, but the appearance. The old door was Green Bay Packer Green and the new one is Ivory, to match all the soffits and fascia on the house. No pic because we discovered the glass in the new door is single pane with a cheap plastic outline of "prairie" windows. I am in the process of transferring the double paned glass, with the pattern etched into the outer pane, from the old door over into the new. Looks kind of weird right now, so pic when done...

we only go to limited places no Walmar ,,Kroger or any big stores only our small local store and they are only usually 4or 5 people there and ALL Isles are one way only and social distancing is enforced,,

Sorry for the long post.
"Long post"? pfft!

I honor the arrows at the store. Its really the only place I go. Pumping gas, no mask. Driving around, no. At work, no. At my folks' house, no. Any time I get out of the car to go in a place, yes. I have been fortunate. Couple weeks back, Dad lost his doctor to covid one day then his Sunday school teacher the next, by other causes.

I can't say I didn't take a moment to think, and to think what people in other jobs must be thinking way more than me... before diving in to waller around in somebody else's (with kids) vehicle interior last week. And every time a feller gets a bit dehydrated and feels weak during a hot day, he may wonder whats going on. Is it just the humidity making me pant like a dog?

So just yeah. What you said. Hate to hear that about your Grandmother, David. Dad frequently reminds us that he is aware he has "had a good run". You and Annie take good care of one another, y'hear?

Meanwhile, I'll stack yet another sunset pursuit on Grape's big tall tally now. Talk about good runs, wow we have had 'em. Don't matter if we ever catch it.

Long as we don't catch that. I am very very thankful to have that Nova quarter patch waiting for me and last week's check just waiting until going by the bank is convenient. Very!

Yep, sure did. I got one of those tee shirts when the pass side window quit working. Had the door torn down before I realized that the child lock was engaged. Driver side window worked fine. Got another one yesterday with the door panel/dome light switch fiasco in the truck...

Just a blurb there, not so much a conversation post. Because "it" is having a field day here now. It sucks you can't cast a smile at a looker but is a more-needed relief to see almost everyone using face coverings. Over their noses, too. Because frankly I had seen about half at best, up to this point.

Unfortunately, I exist in a current hotspot. I just want to wish that your communities keep it down and leave it at that.

Grape sure does fire right up cold, in this warm weather. Humidity in the 30s today, ah!

I did some tough negotiating. They finally agreed to give me $150 to take it. 🙂

123pugsy Computer and PCM tuning is driving me bonkers today so I gave up and tacked my little wire bead in place.

I'm planning on finding it, pulling it and checking for voltage at the terminals fed by the lighting and power lock systems.



From what I can tell, the brain(dead) box gets its power from several sources - the 10A Dome light fuse, the 10A gauge fuse, and the 20A Door fuse. All of these fuses are good and have power. I have not put my mitts on this box yet, but I know I'm close to it. It is supposed to reside behind the interior fuse panel, which I have removed the panels to expose. There is a single wire on the battery terminal that feeds into the fuse panel for the entire vehicle. If that goes, the whole thing goes.

You are exactly correct. I am on a hill and there is a break in the trees that lets me see Signal Mountain in the distance. What are the odds that the sun would set in that exact location from early June through the early September. That was a totally unexpected perk when we bought this house.

We added the screened porch on the back of the house around '07 when the economy was so slow. I had a contractor friend tell me he would do it at cost in order to keep his crew who were about to leave and start looking for work. I'm out here now....82 degrees with nice breeze.

We have really enjoyed it too.
