I know I've said this before. I'll probably say it many more times. I have the best brother! He and his wife are just amazing. Yesterday, we had a wonderful surprise from them. I got a message from my SIL that my brother would be coming over with their old dog house, for us to … Continue reading A wonderful surprise!
A couple of days ago, I mentioned that our riding mower had stopped. It didn't stop running. It stopped moving. Of course, I looked around at anything I could see to try and figure out why it stopped. The only thing I couldn't do is look under it, because we can't see under there without … Continue reading The Culprit
My brother, being the wonderful person that he is, came over to remove the rusted out screws on the trailer frame with an angle grinder. I told him about the box for an angle grinder I'd found in the garage. The one with human teeth in it. He figures that is probably the strangest thing … Continue reading What a job!
It's been warming up for the past few days, which means I had plenty of company while doing my rounds this morning. Butterscotch, as usual, wanted to be carried, while three others followed along. Then Keith caught up to me. 😀 This is how he asks to be picked up. He is just the sweetest, … Continue reading My brother is awesome. Also, wtf?
The last couple of days have been very, very wet! 😀 First, we had a series of thunderstorms that lasted all day Friday and on through the night. On Saturday, we were no longer getting thunderstorm warnings, but we were still getting weather warnings for heavy rain. As usual, the weather systems were more to … Continue reading Fixing the garage door
My awesome brother did it again. After I left to pick up my daughter from work, he went at the gate again. By the time we came home, he had straightened the posts and was finishing the job! He didn't remove the posts completely. To straighten them, normally the post would be removed and washers … Continue reading Main gate: straight
I have the best brother. He's just so awesome. I had emailed him to keep him up to date with how things went yesterday, with the new baby snow blower. As we were emailing back and forth, he told me that he had found the carburetor needed for the old snow blower - which I … Continue reading So Awesome!
Still no working snow blower. I got the kill switch off - that took longer than expected, as the guy that installed it added a ring above the nut that kept it from unscrewing. Which is great, except that it was so thin, it took me a while to even see it through my frosted … Continue reading Well, crud
Yesterday, after picking my daughter up from work, the girls and I went straight to visit my awesome, amazing older brother and his wife for the evening. The storm warnings had returned, but the skies were clear at the time, if incredibly windy all day. The winds died down enough that we were able to … Continue reading Dramatic skies, and apple tree down
My older brother unexpectedly came by today, and while I was outside with him, my daughter popped out to warn me that we cannot close the kitchen window right now. We have a guest. It's been sitting there for several hours, now! It is so CUTE! I love my little green friend. 😀 A nice … Continue reading Window Frogs and awesome brothers
