Nice tree -- but it looks kinda firewoodish for this time of year. (and I don't see a chimney... ;) )

It's quitting time, and I'm off tomorrow. 4 day weekend!

Have a good holiday, everyone.

In approx 5 mins time I go home.
And waiting in my home is Dana!

It could only be better if I had today/ tomorrow off (Grrrrrr) and if it didn't look like it was going to bucket down any second.
Oh and if I'd been a good host and got some cold brewskis in.

Never mind, I'm sure she's found a way to occupy herself since 15.30!

Much yardwork progress. Borrowed a truck over the holiday weekend and made a trip to the dump (couch, dryer carcass, bike). Second trip was all yardwaste/garbage but loaded in the Rover, so we got the flat rate for "automobiles". I had it fully loaded, seatbacks to tailgate, window to window, floor to ceiling.

Last night worked in the back yard, raking and mowing, shoveling dirt, sweeping, weeding... just plain labor, but a labor of love.

Today I'm sore.

eta: got a new electric mower, to replace our current electric mower. It was stationed on the parking strip with an "all free" sign on it. It's a Craftsman, and upgrade (mostly) from our antique Sunbeam. The Sunbeam ran fine, and I keep the blade sharp, but the side mount catcher bag has been missing forever, and so it sprays clippings with unbridled enthusiasm. The Craftsman has a rear bag setup, but it has a door, and an insert to redirect the air/clipping flow for mulching. Plus, it is much quieter, seems stronger and lighter, and the handle is much more rigid which allows me to maneuver it with one hand more easily. One downside is that it is much taller and the handle has a higher lowest setting, which means I can't lay the handle down flat/parallel to the grass to mow under stuff (like the swing, the picnic table, the hydrangeas, etc). A small price to pay, and overall a nice upgrade (for free) for us.

An unexplainable thing happened.

My Honda Transalp, which I haven't ridden in a while (the tags expired in 2003, so I probably haven't ridden it since 2004), wouldn't run. I suspected that the gas sitting in the carburetors for five years probably blocked up the small passages.

I took off a few panels, the seat, gas tank, air box and carburetor. Then I took apart the carburetor and cleaned the jets and floats and all that stuff. Then I put it all back together. When I hooked it up to my truck battery it started and ran. I never thought that would happen.

Now I just need to install the new battery (which has been charging over night), balance the carbs, clean and re-install the air filter, change the indicator flasher and it should be ready to go.
