Now the particulars:
I am very encouraged about the blog. I had hits everyday this week. Thank you one and all.
I think we got the pool up and running in record time this year. A week or less. Even got the kids in this week.
Did a lot of motorcycle riding this week. I’ve been keeping it in the garage at the house so it’s more convenient to take. Out 4 times this week for a total of 208.7 miles. Weather looks less cooperative this week but we’ll see.
Spent a good amount of time in the Morton building this week. Got a lot of work done on the garden tractor. Did the 250 hour maintenance as well as putting the new mower blades on. I think we’ve found all the stones in the yard by now.
Went out for dinner this Wednesday as they were having chicken at church and Gary doesn’t eat chicken. So we went to the Cattleman’s Roadhouse. July and August they are not going to have meals at the church. Haven’t decided what we are going to do. Stay tuned.
Also stay tuned for a special entry this week. Won’t tell you what it’s about so it will be a surprise.
OK, that’s it for this week. Blog again soon.
