Well I wasn't up at the crack of 3:30 like the farmers and Freddy but I figured it was time to check in while I wait for the paint to dry in between coats.
It has been a little hectic the past week. Started last weekend with the 1 grandson's baseball weekend. Their 8u team entered the local state championship series. Played 2 games last Saturday in all that heat. I caught a few players getting quite flushed during the second game and had to enter the dugout and get them wet towels and put on their little heads and necks to cool them off. Coaches weren't seeing what I was and thanked me for catching it. They finally won the championship game on Tuesday night so they are now entitled to move on to the semi-finals in Basking Ridge, NJ to be held in August.
While the grandson was playing ball, his 13 year old sister went to the doctor due to her sluggish behaviour and general lack of energy. Come to find out she was in serious diabetic condition. Her blood sugar was way over 400 and was immediately sent down to CHOP in Philly and admitted in the pediatric ICU. Her blood ph was also way low and they suspected there might be some intercranial issues. A CT scan showed nothing between her ears to be concerned about.
She finally came home on Wednesday and now has to learn how to count carbs and inject herself 4 times a day with insulin.
Got a new employee who started on Monday. Seems to know what he is doing so guess who went in the spraybooth this week ?? NOT THIS GUY !!!!
Thursday my mother-in-law's cat decided to do what cats do and caught the mother tree swallow that has 3 chicks in a nest right outside of our door in the front flower bed. So now I have become the "bird whisperer" and am feeding them mealworms from the end of tweezers. I dont know if that is what they need but the little guys are chomping them down and have made it so far. We'll see how long they survive. As far as the cat ???????
The old AA 260 idles along fine. Sometime this summer I want to shut it down and give it a much needed service call. I think the ash cone needs replacement and I know the water coil gasket is leaking. Just another thing on the to do list.
Freddy, make sure you have that trailer high enough for future access to everything underneath it before you finish the connections.
Chris my dad had a farmall like that with a snow plow and belly mower. He gave the thing away. They are a nice little tractor.
Hope everyone has a good weekend.
