Awake: 5:42am     Temp 68      sleep 5+44      sunny     overnight @ Nicktown.

After our KK meeting, Kathy, Debbie & I worked out for (1.5) hrs; Debbie did leave early as she had exercised yesterday & didn't need any more sore arms.

Early afternoon, I called Chuck & asked him when would be a good time to give that carburetor its necessary parts back. DSC09711.JPG
He told me that Jim was not available right now (the phone company was trouble shooting his phone & Internet system). "Do you think he'll be able to work with us later today" I asked. Chuck wasn't sure. Do you think you & I could start taking that equipment apart & maybe he would show up later & give us a hand? "It's worth a try" Chuck said.

Would you believe that Chuck & I took the same equipment apart as yesterday in a swift (1.5) hrs... but we had the advantage of déjà vu.... & Jim did show up... just in time to hear the 600-Grizzly's engine purring like a Grizzly? Of course, we were all delighted....especially Chuck who took the Quad for a ride down to the blueberry patch & roared back up the trail @ about (30) mph.

Kathy & Shirley joined Jim, Chuck & me having a celebration beer on their back porch. Lesson learned; be organized. Whew!

Dinner: Chicken stir fry, rice, mixed salad, bread, a plum, & a peach.

Lights out: 11:54pm.

Well, here it is now two days later!
I am wondering just how/why in all of H*** did those carb parts wind up in Monte Kirsch's pocket!! Who, in doing repair work of any sort, places small, delicate pieces into their pants pocket? Oh, these Senior-citizen types that cannot remember that for which they did!! BUT! But, one of the good things to come from this lesson-learned (besides the obvious getting the motor to function again and making everybody happy)is the fact that not only you but Kathy, too, got to enjoy a nice cold beer (or two) after the satisfaction of another job well done (or, at least, done).
How is that repair on the microwave going, my good man? I do not yet see any update so the sweat must still be running off the workbench!
