I got it going late today as it was one of those cool days. I was expecting a fuel oil delivery sometime today so I went out and opened up the front gate and left it open so the guy could get his big truck in when he arrived.
Shut off solenoid
I then went back in the house and worked on ordering the fuel shut off solenoid we needed to fix the dozer. I found one for 41 dollars with free shipping which really beat the 220 dollars the local tractor guys wanted. It’ll be here in about a week.
Big truck arrives
After that I did some chair hopping and puttered around the yard until the big fuel truck arrived. He filled up my tank and then we shot the bull for a bit. Good time to buy fuel for my heating stove as the price is fairly low right now.
At 3 I got on my computer as our elementary school class reunion people were going to try out a Zoom meeting on the internet. We had a bit of trouble getting things going for some people but we all had a bunch of laughs.
Chickens do their thing
Around four I let the chickens into the blueberry patch where I piled in some pepperwood mulch and grass clipping yesterday.
I didn’t want them in there too long that’s why I let them in near the end of the day.
Tear it up
I thought it might rain so I needed to go back up to the bulldozer and put the bad solenoid back in to keep any rain water out.
Doing a good job
Keeping the rain out
I hopped on the quad runner and rode up to the dozer and installed the bad solenoid. I may or may rain but now I’m ready for it if it does.
On the way back home I saw my brother Tom working cutting down small trees for fire protection at our rental property so I stopped to check out what he was doing. He’s sitting up on the hillside there resting.
Renters not happy
Apparently our renters don’t like all the trees that need to be removed to make things safe but that’s just the way it goes if you don’t want your place burned down.
At 6 I let all the chickens out into the yard and then checked out the blueberry patch to see how they did.
As the evening approached it cooled down real quick so I was quick to go in the house for the day.
Nice day mostly just puttering around.
