A health update

     ok I am doing fair my legs  are fading Steps are killers and I  am back to the power buggy's at the box stores. Pain hasn't been terrible I can manage pretty good most days. I have to be careful with the morphine  I found I can only tolerate a 1/4 dose any more my hands shake so bad typing is impossible .

   I haven't been commenting on my online friends blogs like I should . I have been ripping through books since I got kindle unlimited. averaging a book and 1/2 a day or 300 pages. 

    Last nite I did get a wild hair . Our back yard was tall and thick so I aired up the tires and gassed  up the tractor. Our lawn mowers deck bit the dust my son is searching on Facebook for one. Some folks want a fortune for non-running  bolens Yard man . Now I don't mind a fair price but 250 for a hulk isn't happening. Two folks want 60$ and 100$ and them gone we texted both I will take both on a chance its just meeting up.
OKAY back to the wild hair I tried to get on the tractor but legs just couldn't make it till my wife gave my ass a shove. I was in the seat with the motor sounding good I dropped it into low gear #2 set the bush hog to medium and tooled thru the grass  smooth as silk. I didn't push it. My wife watched me said I had the time of my life I admit it was fun. once finished I parked it where getting on should be easier .

Going to Gatlinburg !!

      Over the last 2 weeks I have made it a point to do more. walking at home the grocery store and Wal mart . While I do have a bit of dizziness its slowly going away. I spent January and February doing very little except reading . It feels good to be able to go to 2 stores and not have to use the old folks benches or power buggy's. I have in the past so I mean no disrespect. 

     The wife has been wanting to go to the mountains  in the camper but that isn't happening . So today I jumped online punched in a Sunday - Thursday stay in a motel in Gatlinburg. I was shocked at the prices. I scrolled thru till I came to one I knew 1 block off the main drag 5 nights for 226$ tax included. I saw cheaper ones but none I would stay at . Well I booked us a week.  If I know my wife I will be dragged to every open shop at least once in the week. Most of our time will be spent driving in the park and seeing the animals. 

that all I got .

No I will never be able again.

          Our rental trailer had a tree fall it was healthy but the roots weren't deep enough .When It fell it crush an old Nissan truck and pinned our renters Jeep sport. I went up to help Jason cut it off his jeep. I took 3 large branches(1 1/2 ft around) off to reduce weight on his jeep. Once those were off we cut the 2 branches pinning the Jeep as they had no pressure now and backed the jeep out clear of danger. By then I was staggering Jason forced me to take a break and my son showed up and they finished without my help. I got to sit and point so they didn't have the trunk roll and pin them. Jason's jeep has 1 dent in the roof and I can press that out next weekend with a 2x4 and screw jack. The Nissan was going to be sold as a parts car so no loss in it.

     The work I did do showed me I need to take a slower approach to getting work done . Last night we had a pipe bust going through the wall to the shower. I went out with a crescent wrench to turn the water off at the meter. I couldn't budge it so my wife called her son the plumber. He came over and turned it off and  at lunch he spliced the break in 10 minutes and was off running to do 4 more jobs.  He is so hyper his boss has to tell him to slow down people get mad when they see him take 20 minutes to do a job (he does great work) and hand them a 380$ bill. I had a T cut  off in the toolbox that got stole on the truck ;( . I could have fixed the busted pipe but T J did it in a 10th the time.

Couped up and bored!!!!

      I have been couped  up for 2 months  its been raining or freezing . Now I have been getting dizzy when I stand and it all from lack of exercise .  Tomorrow I plan on going to Sam's  ,Wal mart and Aldi's . I don't need anything I can think of but I am sick of feeling trapped in the house. This trip to the stores is more about exercise and my sanity. 

       Smile !!!

Gun give away.

      We have all had relative's die and watched the free fall fighting over what was the deceased left behind. I could make a list and hope my wife got everything to who I want to get it. But I have choose to give my guns out before I pass away.  This way there is no hurt feeling ,confusion or mistakes made.

      The first gun I gave to my nephew was an H and R pardoner 20 ga.  for his son when he got older . I gave my brother my Belgium made Browning16ga he broke down in tears when he opened the case and saw it. I have a single shot 22 Glenfield 10  I am putting a red dot sight on for 2 of the grandkids to learn with. Plus a model 25 ,7 shot is getting the same sight for another grandson. I still have a good many more to give to the kids . What I m trying to do is have the gun in good shape and ammo for it when I give it to them. 

    The first of the week Harry at Self Sufficient Mountain Living. had a link for 8mm in striper clips from AIM. I ordered 5 boxes of them (they look like new) but are date 11/53 .  I doubt I could shoot my 8 mm Mauser in the shape I'm in  it would break my shoulder . Wal mart is 39.95 plus tax for a box of 20 I got 75 in stripers for 45.17 tax shipping and all. Just to give away!

     I have other things besides my guns I am finding homes for. The more I get done the less the wife will have to worry with.
