One More Try Breakroom 4/28 to 5/3

Gorgeous Sunday morning - - get up and enjoy it. Let's give this thing one more try. Maybe someone will lock the
old breakrooms so we all post in the same place -- that would really help. Been missing Lary - - he took care of us.

Got a note from Scotty - he is still waiting for the "amazing" Socialist health system of Canada to do something
for him. Has all the OK's from Mayo, just needs Canada system to give the OK. Disgusting. As lousy as ours
is right now, shows what would happen if dummies listen to the hoard of Socialists lining up to convince us
what a wonderful president they would make.. (Better shut up and put this under another heading)

Got fresh coffee and ph00 abr00ing. Brought some of wife's amazing BAKED banana/nut French toast
and have maple syrup to top it off. That should get your day up and going. Fed the dragon - - just pet
him a bit -- very lonely .

Off and running - - - well, hobbling - - fell into a corner at my front door and stretched my right knee way
out of the norm - -all swollen up. Do not wear Sketchers in the house on carpet - - they do not
forgive - - they refuse to move without lifting first. Wow, scared me when I looked down at it all
cramped out sideways. Doing a bit better today. Still very painful.

Me gone...……………..……………….Bobby

It's my pot and I'll stir it if I want to. If you're not careful, I'll stir your's as well!

Good morning from that other Paradise. Still gorgeous days down here, but anxiously waiting for the rainy season to start.

Good job HobblingBob for starting a new breakroom. C'mon peoples, join in and make the breakroom a fun place to stop by and visit.

Feel bad for Scotty with what he is being forced to endure with all that stooopid government bureaucracy and typical government inefficiency. Let's hope and pray that he gets a big break very soon and can quickly go down to the Mayo where they will find the root cause of his problem and fix him up permanently.

Installed new injectors in my truck last week. What a pain that is, particularly cylinders # 5 and 6 due to being so hard to reach. Still have a tender breast bone and lower ribs from laying on all that hard, pointy metal in my efforts to reach so far back. Was very happy that after the job was completed that it fired right up on the first try and idled nice and smooth. The only problem is that for the first few miles it smoked like crazy, even with the slightest acceleration. That made me worried, but as I drive it more the smoke is starting to go away. I know that a bunch of oil dropped down into the combustion chamber when I pulled each injector, but did not expect it cause so much smoke for so long. The engine now runs smoother and quieter with lots of power from the 50 hp over injectors.

Of to enjoy a relaxing Sunday.

Ciao.

Well, well,
for the break room, you should include the inebriated Europeans..

I snatched some of those things with a hint of banana flavor.... now I'm burping somewhat fierce.. If I had added taco bell I could match the breakroom dragon for fiery breath..
Nevertheless, got some parts installed, small bits like the exhaust, lighting, trans cooling etc this weekend.
Will eat something hot to maybe weld the small parts while burping in my dreams..

Hey buddy, you are always welcome. How is your brother doing? Think of him often. A labor of love taking care of someone
in his condition. Bless you for watching over him and being his friend.

Long day today - - just can't do much - - hurts horrible trying to get out of a chair after sitting a bit. Cannot stay on that leg
long at all. Sure hope nothing is broken - - think it just pulled tendons/muscles when it distended so far to the side at the knee - - was sure weird looking down at my lower leg sticking out to the side so far. Swelling is down some today.

Too late for more ph00, so grab a bite or two on that banana nut French toast - - baking it gives it a whole different
taste - love it.

Me gone - - - hopalongBob

No way, Jose. We need more than that from you. What is the latest? Keep us UTD.

Another gorgeous day dawning here. Busy week - - hopefully get past shuffling or I will not get it all done. Put fresh coffee and almond ph00 on.
Have not been out to get any goodies and the blonde is not out of bed yet, so can't steal anything from her. So, have some coffee or ph00 and
smile.

Slowly starting to warm back up again. Lets see if it holds this time. Got a lot to do. Trying to get the house livable so we can be out of the rental by the end of June. Things just keep pushing us back. Not sure about the job anymore, people are bailing right and left. Any aircraft mechanics out there want to move to Alaska?

Well, put on some coffee on low simmer, should be good when you slackers get up.

Fed test batch to the dragon, resulting flame inspired Roskosmos to the idea to get up to ISS in three hours instead of six.
https://investforesight.com/the-fast...ks-to-the-iss/

Tried with more coffee and less water this time. Use at own risk.

For the tea drinking folks, found my old Samowar from Chernobyl, it still boils a little dark viscous goop since April 86, added a little water around the 25th, seems ready for consumption now.
Again, use with care at your own risk, Known side effects .. none known, nobody ever tried this batch.

Hey, what's this stuff glowing and bubbling in the coffee pot.
Finally got my IP put back together. I'm tired. Good night.

WOW - - I have no idea what that is in the coffee pot. Smells weird, looks weird - - - uhhhh, nope, not for me. Made
fresh pot of ph00 for the sane people. Gorgeous day again - - temps in the low 80's and clear blue skies. Still
hobbling but sleeping is tough - - cannot get in a position to relieve the pain in that knee. Best position is in my
electric recliner in my office. Then the blonde doesn't have to listen to me groan like a big baby. Sure hurts.

Hey, brought some apple fritters - - snuck them in so dragon didn't see them - - I hope!!!! Hurry and get yours.

Me gone...………...

Greetings and salutations from down here in the land of beauuuutiful weather. Still very nice, but out in the sun you will get cooked quite quickly, but the shade is wonderful. No rain yet, but expect it soon.

Going to forgo the coffee but will try some of the left over fruit. Can't find any of the 'fitters. Yes Oliver, they are bad, just ask Bob, but they sure are delicious and almost addictive. Right Bob?

A few days ago mentioned that I had installed new injectors in my truck. Forgot to mention a trick I discovered. Supposedly the crossover tubes can sometimes be hard to remove and a special tool is required. Mine were not that tight, but I got them all out extremely easily with the use of a 1/2" open end wrench and a medium sized flat screwdriver. The 1/2" wrench is a good fit over the unthreaded part of the crossover tube. Slip it over and use the screwdriver to pry them out. This little trick works really slick, is easy and fast with zero damage to the tubes and should work even with tight tubes. Hope this helps someone.

Just finished a large fresh veggie salad for lunch, so time now for a short siesta while I digest this meal.

Ciao ZZZZzzzzzzz
