Black Back Brace

Good Morning,
I have been up for a while; I wearing the back brace; I realized that standing up and bending over the hood of the lawn tractor was what was hurting my back. So I sit and wear the back brace. I think I am done with the hood; cosmetics is all that is left; which could be sanding what shows to the public.

Black Back Brace

Good Morning,
I have been up for a while; I am wearing mom's back brace; I realized that standing up and bending over the hood of the lawn tractor was what was hurting my back. So I sit and wear the back brace. I think I am done with the hood; cosmetics is all that is left; which could be sanding what shows to the public. Now I am making a water wick filter holder as the ones I buy keep changing as the humidifiers go out of business and I can't buy filters or as in our case they doubled in price as in $4.50 going to $9.50 which is someone bought a lot of filters at $3.00 and wants to make some money. I will make a filter and use gauze as my wick.

OK


Good Morning,

I feel good this morning. A little sore but OK. Working on the hood; I had to make wire clips to hold some of the plastic in place. At left is a blowup of the clip and below is the actual size of the clip; I have to drill holes in the plastic. I will bend the legs to hold the plastic in place. In some places the glue is not holding still; the clip will hold the plastic in place while I mend the plastic.
The hood will look like this when I am done. I just patching the cracks; it was cracked really bad.

The US Time Clock

Good Morning, 
The photo below is a composite of a photo I took of my GMC plus a top from the Internet. The part below he lights is my truck, the hood and top are off the Internet. On each side of the GMC logo it is the same photo for each side, just to make the photo equal on both sides.
The composite came out nice.
I feel better this morning as my back is healing nicely. Mentally I am fine. Spiritually  I am on the planet called earth which is part of the space surrounding me. To me that seams infinite but for some that may have an ending; I agree with time.

Board Meeting

Good Morning,
I was at a NARFE Board meeting in Louisville yesterday, I caught a ride with Joe who had asked if I had a way there to Louisville; mom told his wife that Laurel and I were driving Tuesday morning and he said that he had booked a room and he was going up Monday. So we called and said that it was OK; we could go with him Monday; Mom took me to Kohl's in Paducah, KY to meet Joe (he had a appointment near Kohl's) yesterday mom drove to Princeton, KY to pick me up near Pagliai's Pizza.

Out on the belt line From Louisville, Kentucky

Good Morning,
I feel good mentally and physically. my back was a wee bit sore, which was a change and I was mildly dizzy ( I take medication for that, so I am fine).
It is 45 degrees here this morning, clear and calm; I took my shower and just need to dress at daylight and I am ready to go.

The 2nd Amendment and 3rd Amendment

Good Morning,
It is a nice 50 degrees outside and a comfortable 71 degrees inside our small brick home. We have the right to bear arms against anything that wants to hurt us in our home and to defend ourselves against someone that wants to reign over me which includes folks like Donald Trump, Putin, Mitch McConnell or Matt Bevin or soldiers taking over my home.
I was thinking about smart guns and smart rifles; in our new cars we have a key that is in our purse; as long as the key is near our automobile the machine will start. It is the same with smart guns and rifles; if you have the key on you key-ring the gun or rifle will work otherwise it is just a useless piece of plastic or steel.

Bug Run

Good Morning,
The stiffness is about gone and I feel good mentally and physically. I spent the day yesterday morning downtown at the Coalition booth (BUG RUN) and then at home surfing the web and mending my lawn tractor hood out in the garage plus watching Alabama and Texas A&M play American football on Television. I will do the same today.
9:00 AM
I just mended the lawn tractor hood again; it was in a lot of pieces. it may not be strong enough to stay together.

Stiff

Good Morning,
I am sore this morning; My back problem is one that will stay with me forever; every time I heal it I carry something that is too heavy (for me that is over 30 lbs). time have lowered my ability to lift; I can lift, but it takes awhile to get over it. My back is not strong anymore. I am not in a position where I cannot do anything it is a hit or miss type of situation. Most days it is just soreness and stiffness; sometimes I get down and almost motionless and that is almost hospital time.
I am fine mentally and physically.
11:00 AM
I just got home from working at the Bug Run that was sponsored

by The Crittenden County Coalition for a Drug Free Community

Hand Dolly and Militia


Good Morning,
I feel good this morning, I was sore all day Thursday from manhandling groceries. I started working on my mower hood (it was broken in pieces and I am now stitching it back together with heat and wire mesh patches.
I have not done anything else but let my back heal, it has been sore for about 3 days now. I did use my hand dolly to move the 40 pound box of  kitty liter and a 15 pound bag of cat chow a couple of days ago but I did lift the bags from the van to the hand dolly.
***
I did watch the debate and the aftermath of the debate; For those of you that believe in the United States Constitution what we heard Donald Trump say at the debate loosens the glue that holds those words in the United States Constitution together.
He pushed anarchy into the way we elect the President by saying if he wins he will uphold the Constitution but if he loses then maybe he and a militia will revolt. Our revolution is through a ballot box. The best way to solve that problem is to vote a straight Democratic ticket which will remove the anarchy of Trump and his militia.

Post Debate

I saw on television at the post debate programs 20,000 ways to tell me how to understand Donald Trump’s last Statement.
My favorite line was, “You can’t polish a turd!”
How many ways can you say," Sore Loser."
I get the feeling that if he wins then he will be a Russian Puppet. And if he loses he wants the militias to follow him in revolt.

Tooth Splitting

Good Morning,
When I was living in Alhambra on 3rd Street; I went to Garfield School which I think is gone but the buildings are still there and is a church school. While living in Pasadena I chipped out a chunk of my tooth in front and someone had a silver cap placed over the tooth. (back to the photo below) In the playground below, looking back toward the building in the back is where when the school bell rang and I was running toward my classroom (behind the building at left (auditorium)) someone swung a bat to hit a ball toward the school and hit me with his follow through square in the mouth and it split my good tooth in two (like yanking the roots and pulling them apart like a wishbone) I bled and bled and my tooth just fell out in two long pieces and a gap was left exposed. They stuffed the hole with cotton to stop the bleeding. So I had a silver tooth next to a gap. My self-esteem went to the toilet.

Christmas In Marion Arts and Crafts Show


Good Morning,

My daughter arrived Friday to attend a Arts and Crafts Christmas Festival here in town. Her friend Megan came with her as they are sharing two booths at the Craft show. 
The Craft show was a huge success, you could not find a parking spot within one block of the school building where it was held.
My wife and daughter both participated, my daughter with a booth and my wife helping the homemakers club selling breads and cookies.I was not able to help much but I did take photos and did help my daughter bring her stuff here. Yesterday I did nothing but take the photos.
Here is some photos of there booth.

He write extremely well.

House Cleaning


Good Morning,
I feel good this morning; I am not stressed out because I am suffering from local problems. The only thing bothering us is making ends meet; I earned a retirement and mom earned social security. Congressmen earn a retirement if they only work 4 elected years in Congress, that is a nice perk for 4 years in Congress.
Any way I feel good. Today I clean up a little more than possible and for me that is not much.

Covered the Solar Panels


Good Afternoon,
I covered the solar panel with a tarp and bubble wrap to protect them from freezing weather. I was windy out there but it was blowing lightly from the south and it acted like me putting a bedspread on a bed. All I had to do was tie down the southern end and walk my tie down up one side and the then other. After I got it in place I used heavier tie downs to even it out a little. When I was done I put four straps on it to hold it for the winter (see example).

Destroyer Tender

I think I was Stationed on this Ship at this time  The Tender (Repair Ship (25)) I remember putting the RADAR up on the ship across the pier. The Ships tied off alongside the USS Frontier to be repaired.

We had welders, an optical shop, a foundry, machine shops, electrical and electronics, secret machines, wood working, pipe fitters, boilermakers and just about any type of service needed on ships.

Math Order of Operation

Here is a video that explains the order of Operation in math.



Bartolomeu Dias

Good Morning,
We have Holidays in the United States that have been promoted heavily or come by popular demand. I think of the queens in Spain that hired sailors to find gold and food in distance lands. Others have traveled the distances and found places unknown to us but who promoted those travels and made them famous. Why do we know the story of Christopher Columbus of Magellan or Captain Cook?
Through heavy research we have discovered more on the discovery of the Americas but who promoted the idea of the New World. Who got those travels into text books in the 1900’s.
