Saturday - Spent the morning on yard
work. Painting the bits of the old tomato cover. Painting the
bits of the yard tool holder that I've be building. Picking up dead
birds in the side yard.
Lunch at Miso Sushi. Yum.
Neighbors were incredibly noisy, Mariachi and HipHop until after
midnight. I want to move so badly....
Friday - Hot. AC working
S mentioned that she had to buy a new (to her) washer, because the latch
failed on the old one. For four or five hundred dollars she
could have repaired the ten year old unit... Gotta love modern
Worked on the app until about 7pm. The great June Git Disaster cleanup
Thursday 15 June May
Hot. Glad the A/C is working.
Worked a bit at the various programming tasks.
Talked to Tim a bit in the evening about some of the Saticoy laterals stuff.
Wednesday 14 June
Wednesday - Warm.
I bought a new motor and installed it. It was $70, which I think is about
half what I paid four or five years ago. The clips holding it to the bracket
were rusted out, so I made another trip to Home Depot for those.
It works MUCH better than the old one. It is noisy, but probably puts
out as much air on LOW as the old motor put out on HI. In fact it blew
little bits of rust all over the dining room, it was so much more powerful!
I actually had to use a gear puller to get the drive pulley off. I
think I've used my puller set twice in the ten or fifteen years I've had
So, new pads, new pump, new motor. I really need to change out the
belt as well, before I leave for vacation.
In the evening the phone alerted me to a space station overpass. I
went out, and since I had the phone on me, actually took a video of it
passing near Jupiter, almost at the zenith. You can clearly see both,
and hear the chirping of crickets in the background.
Tuesday - Warm.
The swamp cooler motor packed it in. Fortunately it wasn't too hot, but it's
supposed to get hot towards the end of the week, so I'll have to get on
Monday - Warm.
Sunday - Another warm day.
I just cleaned up a bit, and relaxed.
The anniversary of D-Day in Normandy was last week.
Which reminds me: my brother B sent me the picture below that he'd found of
the USS Bayfield, APA-33. My Dad's ship. He was aboard at Iwo Jima,
though not at Normandy. He may actually be in the picture somewhere.
