Now the specifics:
Mike and Julie inherited a 2009 Pontiac Vibe when Mike’s dad passed away. It has been sitting in their drive way many months just rotting away. I think Mike was trying to sell it but he wanted too much. Julie suggested they give it to me then I could fix it up, license and insure it and they could use it if and when they needed an extra car. And it wouldn’t be sitting in their driveway. That was all good with me. We finally got the title and registration finished up last week. Of course the car wouldn’t start. So, I took a battery charger up and a tank of air to make sure the tires where all inflated and we brought it to our house. New battery and battery terminals. Checked and topped off fluids and took it to get all the recalls worked on it. They did the air bag recalls which were the most important but they didn’t have the parts for the others. So, they will order them and I’ll take it back for that. Otherwise, we have another fully functional vehicle for people so use if they are in a bind.
Spent a lot of time out working in the Morton building. Doing the usual maintenance on the lawn equipment. Changing oil, spark plugs, fuel filters and cleaning air filters. Got most of that done. Still waiting on some parts for a couple items.
Also replace the water heater in the Morton building. The old one was leaking and was the original one and probably 10 or more years old. So it was time.
Kathy had a touch of something we suspect was viral. Wednesday afternoon she complained of acute abdominal pain and she felt like she was going to throw up. So, we got her to bed and gave her some medication to settle her stomach. By the next morning it had passed for the most part however her stomach hurt for a couple days till she was back to normal. All is well now.
Well that’s it for this week. Hope all is well and you have a great week coming up. Bue for now.
