The other car survived our daughter driving it to prom. The guy she was hoping would ask her out was busy with a ‘college campus visit and talk to the football coach’ trip, so she went to prom alone. She still had a good time.
Today was a busy day. It started with breakfast–aebleskiver/ebelskiver–daughter asked for it and then smiled…how could I say no. Then car body work, replacing a fuel pump on the 1950 CJ3A Jeep (that’s how the cj3a name for the page’s address came about), then yard work and then I went over to my mom’s house. After doing her yard work, I noticed a leaking window that damaged some plaster. The window is now fixed and I’ve redone the plaster. Next week, I’ll put what they call a knockdown finish on the wall (it’s easy…spray a thinned down plaster on the wall with a $30 tool, wait a few minutes and then lightly slide a wide wallboard tool one time across the sprayed on finish). and then the following week, paint it and move the furniture back into position. If I could devote full days to it, it would be done in 1-1/2 days (plaster and paint takes time to dry), but I work full time elsewhere, so it has to fall in line with everything else.
Tomorrow morning I’m driving the school bus, so I’ll be up at 4:30am. After the bus, it’s off to the engineering job.
