OK, a bit of a funny here, the neighborhood I work in is supposed to be a rough one (not really compared to a real big city hood).
Anyway a customer locked his keys in his car with it running last night, not much I could do to help, was the only one there and had to run the registrar and such.

Well everyone coming in seemed to try and help, after an 1 1/2 hours they got it un-locked, tough neighborhood indeed. And the guy who got it open finally was the local semi-crazy guy that stands out there and has conversations with my trash can. Car owner bought him a beer and everyone was happy.

Dang, nice to belong to a closed group where I can tell stories once in a while with out it getting back to people, you guys won't tell will you?

Guess it was a successful day, cut some wood, didn't cut me. Rode the Harley, didn't freeze. Shot the LCP some more, no malfunctions at all, shot my M-39 S&W, same results.

I'm home eating my Christmas dinner finally, were about the only place open Worked 4-12 on the registrar, was the only one there from 5-12, did around $2700 in safe drops of cash, around $3500 total at the registrar (don't count credit cards at the pump) waited on 457 customers.  (Some were more than once though but that many cycles of it.)

been out and back, temp is playing with 60 at the moment. Raining though. had to reshuffle the chairs in the clubhouse, people just seem to not be able to put them back the way they were. Spent some time with a hose trying to wash down the new concrete around the newest home here, was really covered with mud and sawdust. Was able to get about two thirds of it done before we were pulled off to do something else( as usual!) Roll Eyes

Nice outside here, sunshine and I'm guessing upper 50's, low 60's.Rain went through last night, gone this morning. Did some tractor repairing, now setting some gate and corner posts for a fence rebuilding project. Got the Allis Chalmers going, but the John Deere's gonna have to go to the shop, leaking hydraulic pump. Allis seems to generate water in it's hydraulic system, had to drain and fill, then do it again, the fluid is still kind of milky looking, but I don't have any more fluid to change it again.

Afternoon all.  I've been busy, but I'm back. Roll Eyes

So, overview of my week.

My grandmother has been up, so we've been doing things.  Traveling to the city for chow, cruising the highways through the county, and looking for rocks (Grandma is a rock hound.  So am I, if you count gold as a rock.  Roll Eyes  ).  

Temperature has been down around 15 degrees at night, so there has been some ice and sn*w most days of the week, but it melts off by noon.
  We had some of the white stuff on Friday.  I had the day off from work, but nobody told me, so I showed up at work at 6:30 to find an empty office.  So I went out and played in the sn*w.  Helped a traveler chain up going over one of the summits.  Why he decide to hook a 1/2 ton 2wd truck to a 30 foot trailer and then drive over an icy mountain at 6:45 am is beyond me, but he made it.  Barely.  
A while later I went out to work on a video for YouTube in a place I go to frequently in my truck.  But, I was in my mom's 2010 Explorer, just to see how it would do.  The video was a fail (got lucky with that one, though.  A 60 foot tall pine tree fell on the 'stage' I was using while I was off gathering more supplies from the forest.), so I headed back.  
   As I was driving back down the road, I came across a patch of ice.  I was in second gear, going about 10 mph but the car broke traction.  I tapped the brakes like I would in my truck, but with the ABS system, I didn't get much more than a light on the dash.  By then, I was off of the ice and back in 1 inch of sn*w over good gravel.  So I tried to lock the brakes and get traction from the gravel, like I would do in my truck.  But, the ABS and traction control said no.  The driver side of the car slowed down, while the passenger side hit the go juice and tossed me into a spin...and off the side of the road.  Shocked
    No major damage to the car: just a cracked plastic bumper and little dent in the hood that I fixed.  Had to use my truck to pull the car out, but that worked and everyone is happy.  I don't think I'll ever live it down, though my dad did almost the same thing on the way back home.   Roll Eyes

Good progress on the boiler. Had to go to Fleet Farm for pipe and fittings. Just shy of $100.  Shocked Hope to finish tomorrow.

Good morning all,

Thanks for the coffee.  It's not a new experience for me, but it never gets any more pleasant.  I spent most of the night with my head shoved under the pillow, trying to ignore the chorus of chickens.  They would not shut up!  All because they got on the roost wrong...  I mentioned that to my grandma and she said, "wait until you have grandchildren."  I'm not sure how to take that.

Anyway, I'm up at 0500, getting ready for "the grindstone."  Roll Eyes  After I'm done with that, I have tax paperwork, college paperwork, and in the evening FEMA training.  I've already taken this course twice, but it doesn't count for some reason. Huh

Morning y'all.
Coffee is hot.

The gas pipes and water pipes are done. Next is fill the system with water and check for leaks. If no leaks, connect exhaust and intake air, then connect electric and see if it works.

'Tis 18 and cloudy. High of 33.
