After a weekend with a 2 and 4 year old guest giving Mom a much needed break I thought I might get to relax today. Unfortunately we got a call that my wife's 93 year old Aunt in a nursing home had taken a turn for the worse so we ran up there to see her. She's going into hospice care and unfortunately didn't recognize us. Really tough on my wife as she's the last living member on her mother's side of the family. Unfortunately this is the time of our life.
I got in about 350 miles today. I took the tintop out to zeeland, mi and stopped in at trailbuddy.com. they sell parts to restore honda minitralis and they also offer restoration services plus sell a few different chineese made bikes. I was there for the mini show
The gold one reminds me of my very first bike. A gleeming blue honda trail 70! Grandpa had no idea what a monster he created when he rolled that thing out of the garage!
Went to the Honda Dealer in Watkins Glen to have my front tire fixed. Turns out TPMS is supposedly the problem. They took the wheels apart (loved the car tire) and reset the system. See how it is before the next ride.
went over to JW's yesterday and started wiring up the XL 70, going to see if it will fire up by the weekend. if it does i'm going to trim the excess wires and replace the blade connectors with waterproof ones
Me and our Geezer Lawn care threesome, found a couple of more neighbors in need, so whipped out the equipment, and tided up their lawns: one recovering from surgery and the other one old & suffering with arthritis. Then went home and cut my own yard!
Note: the lots in our neighborhood are tiny, so not a big deal to do. Glad we can help!
Got my apartment ready for the annual inspection and most likely passed.
Worked on my table project and the picture which is the center piece wanted to roll back up and off the double sided tape. I put a few books on it in hopes that it will stay down and not roll back up.
Got an order from walmart.com and tomorrow the other items show up.
Was without internet for 3 days and it gave me a chance to really go through the apartment and make it super clean.
