That's a whole lotta woman right there! :lol: I couldn't cover that in one night!! :D Women like that are extremely dangerous to a guy my size. Crack kills! :o

Not a whole hell of a lot goin' on over here. Like Dcrane said, the yard still has all of 6" of snowcover from end to end - only the swamp is showing grass. :mad: I'll tell ya - I'm REAL sick of this winter crap!!!

After my rape incident (I was raped yesterday ...), I decided to install a switch to cut power to the burner for winter, while still having an aquastat & circulators for zones & DHW. I bled all over the place as my drill bit broke through & caught the sides of the aquastat cover, spinning the whole cover while the sharp edges sliced into my fingers at warp speed. Always something taking skin & blood around here ...

Ficus is still running. That Genuine FoMoCo tensioner did the trick. Over 7k since the engine overhaul last September & still running like a champ. Just got a cable for the Blazer's 4x4 actuator. Hopefully it's that simple .... but I don't count on that. I'll try it and see what happens. Hoping for the best. More than likely I'll probably be yanking the front diff .... again.

A late afternoon arrival for me. It was about 20* overnight, and I still have snow in spots around the place, the ponds are still frozen.
Spring is late hre as well. This should be good maple syrup sap weather, below freezing at night, and above during the days.. I'm hoping
my buddy who's making syrup this year has a good batch, so he might share a quart or two. :D

Just got back from running errands and putting gasoline in the van.. man o man, a $100 bill doesn't go far at a gas pump these days.

I'm still heating with coal and waste oil in the shop. gonna be a month or more before the AA gets it's summer rest..

Have a safe weekend everyone.. Hey Smitty: you ever hear of leather work gloves to protect those fingers? :lol:

Bought a ton ($270) of bulk pea coal this morning from the closest dealer, Hanover, PA. Needed it to get through the season, since I'm out of my UAE stock. While we haven't had any winter to speak of here the cold temperatures are still hanging on. I didn't have to plow snow, not even once!

I don't know how the math works out Freddy, I wasnt clicking on that image! Yeah, Dcrane, I am occupying it. I understand what you are saying about the gov. I am planning to make it home for awhile and move on with a profit to get something more inline with my desires. That is tough here, I cannot afford the home I have in Maine....yet! There is a lot going on and I am starting to get noticed in the right circles as my work is seen. Patience.
