A peach of a Friday

Well I’m not the mechanic I once was. Struggled with the lawn tractor today and never got it running. Electrical or starter issue. So I switched tracks and did the trimming first and some landscaping. Going to plan B tomorrow. And B is for backup, which I have none so I’m heading out to get a small push mower.

Feeling peachy.

Wow, just realized it’s been a few decades since mowing the yard with a push mower. Not that this body doesn’t need the exercise. Not that I don’t need a push mower for some of the hills I have. I’m just glad its not mid summer heat time yet. It will also give me the week or two I need to get the tractor fixed.

Also felt great to have a day without rain. Maybe we can pull off two in a row. That would be sweet because I do have a ton of work to do tomorrow outside also.

Given the feeling of my back and neck I may have gotten a little too much sun today. But I can cope with that because if that is more noticeable than the back pain, that is a good thing.

Well its time to get some doctors appointments scheduled again. One of my least favorite things to do. The good thing is these guys look hard to find things wrong. The bad thing is they sometimes find some bad things wrong. So I’m a bit gun shy of doctors.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Feels good to spend a day working. Wish I had more to show for it. Maybe more progress tomorrow.

I see the Orioles are setting new standards for fielding in the American League. It was so bad they might make Shaqtin a Fool.

Tomorrow we test out the surgically repaired shoulder with the golf swing.

Its a good night when you can look forward to seeing the crack of dawn.
