I set about 300 sq feet of porcelin tile this afternoon. In a basement for a retired St Paul cop.
Dunno why or how I got my hand so full of thinset mortar but it's how I came home today.
Caked on...
Got another 400 feet to set over the next couple of days. Plus grouting. And maybe shoot some base trim in afterwards. It's all by the hour plus materials.
He's fussy as all get out. And has a house that you'd think is well beyond his means.
But I don't ask those kind of questions.
I worked for him a few years ago.
Next year he wants a new fence. So I told him today I have a post hole digger behind my Ford tractor and could drill the holes pretty easily.
Just relating it to tractors here.
I'm real glad to be working again.
That's what i did today.
Anyone else?

Spent a good share of the morning drafting a fairly complicated Will for a woman I've known since we were kids. She's about 75, and used to relief milk for us before I was in school. She's on her 4th husband- one divorce many years ago, then she outlived 2. Complications arise from her being attached to various step-children she's acquired over the years, and not wanting to stiff anybody(no pun intended).

Then a very icy deed signing, by a disappointed heir- property has been up for sale for 5 years, started out priced way too high, then came the real estate crash. They finally found a buyer, but she's getting 10 grand, originally hoped for 50. Don't know why its my fault, but I just got it over with as soon as possible and let her go on her sour way.

Then started a probate of a Will I wrote about 15 years ago. In case you've ever wondered why many Wills have those heavy, usually blue covers, there are two reasons- Makes it look important, and much less likely to be thrown away by mistake when heirs are going through the decedent's papers, and its a place for the lawyer to put his name, address and phone number, so when heirs find it, guess who they call? Never stop selling, as they say in retail. . .

Got up. Built a fire. Took pain meds, washed them down with coffee. Stared at the computer until I felt like moving, ate breakfast. Hung around the house until my wife finished showering and dressing. Brought in enough wood to keep her going for the day. Mailed my fire insurance payment, checked on my sister.

Then worked on my snowplow truck until noon, went back and continued that until nearly dark. Picked up my sister at the auto repair where she was leaving off her car, went to the store. Went home, split kindling, started a fire in the living room stove, brought in more wood, ate supper, stared at the computer, gave up and went to bed early.

Today I am going to do much the same, no pain meds necessary this morning, must have done something right yesterday. Maybe I will stack some wood in the shed, work on the plow truck, take my sister to pick up her car.

Went to get Xrays as a walk-in. I was there just before their stated opening time but there were a couple people ahead of me already. Checked in, sat for about 5 minutes and they called me in.

When I got back to reception, I heard that gal tell people at her desk that there would be an hour wait because quite a few people had checked in after I did.

Went to Costco to shop and lunch; came back home and changed air filters and climbed in the attic to spray deodorizer in the air handler before turning on the heat pump.

Took my sons to the school bus before sunrise. Hooked up my cattle trailer and got it positioned for loading cows. Carpooled to work. Came home from work (in the dark) and then loaded cattle. Then spent about an hour pulling my pickup and trailer around the barn yard the with the MFWD tractor and log chain in the sloppy mess we now have now that the frost is back out. Once free of the slop, I hauled the cull cows to the sales barn, came home, then pressure-washed the trailer. Fed the animals and now I'm back to dreading getting up before sunrise to take my sons to the school bus again.

Only another month or so and days will stop getting shorter! Days don't seem nearly as long when the sun is shining most of the "day".

Went to the chiropractor for my monthly appointment.

Met with our local County Zoning Administrator about the building permit I need for a new shop building I"m planning. Found out I need a set of drawings of the planned building from the company I"m getting the building from.

Accompanied my wife to an eye appointment.

Went to Best Buy and picked up a new computer I had on order to replace one that was loaded with bugs. (It was on Best Buy"s 30 day replacement).

Proceeded to the company I"m buying the building from and told them what I needed. Salesman called our Zoning Administrator to confirm for sure. Then made the down payment on the building.

Came home, BS"d with a neighbor for an hour.

Started up my new computer. In contrast to the other one, this one works like it"s supposed to.

Went to a local tavern for dinner.

Started installing various programs on the new computer.

Went to my PT appointment(shoulder arthritis). Loaded a trailer with firewood and hauled it to the house, unloaded another trailer of logs with loader tractor and log tongs, met with the administrator of our county nursing home(I'm on the board of directors), discussed dishwasher problem with cook at the Elks(I'm a trustee), dropped off a chain saw for repair, washed my truck, recovered a bunch of files on computer for my wife. Other than that pretty much laid around and did nothing like any other retired guy.

Cut brush, been at it for about 3 weeks. Clearing fence lines of buck thorn, prickly ash, and vines, what a mess!! Should have never let it go this long! On the plus side will have another two years or so of fire wood. If we stay snow free till Christmas like last year will have the place clean. Then were going to pull a lot of fence so it will be easier to keep clean, it's all shot anyway. Having beautiful weather after that cold spell and a little snow.

Set 14 cabinets in a nutrition store. Got 3 more cabinets and a column to set, then I can start the crown molding. Fun part is the cabinets have not been built for the crown molding, so will have to add angled blocks before I can start the trim!

Loaded a round bale on a horse customer's pickup. Square baled another round bale (with pitchfork) and three s-curve squares out of the loft. Loaded 100 squares on a customer's trailer. Loaded the 37 squares on my pickup & stacked them in the mulch bale shed -actually 12 of them went into the to-sell loft. Loaded another 20 onto another horse customer's pickup. Put square baler away for the winter for the third time. Scraped up all the chaff and shoveled it on my pickup and spread it on a field. Carried firewood.

Removed the lift-all from the Farmall H ,repaired and replaced it. The drive coupling had stripped threads so removed it ground the shaft and coupling then welded back together. Wrapped the coupling with a wet rag so it wouldn't destroy the seal. Ran the engine for awhile and no leaks. Deadheaded the hydraulic at full throttle with out breaking the weld---yet.

Let's see....went to the bank this morning and cashed some checks. Then I called the tire guy to come out and mount a pair of 14.9 28 tires that I bought at a consignment sale on one of my loader tractors. While I was waiting for him,I pulled the motor out of the 1600 Oliver to see why the clutch wouldn't release. Found out that the fingers had worn right off the pressure plate and the clutch was totally trashed to boot. Looked back on the pallets in the corner of the toolshed,had a nice pressure plate and clutch out of another 1600 that's broken down in to it's basic components. Got the hydrapower unit and bell housing bolted back up. Fixed the rod to the tilt steering while the motor and gas tank were out.
So,not much,just you're average run of the mill day.
