A bit cooler today, from weather, not numbers 😉 And maybe some more ‘moisture from the sky’. Got a bunch of rain in various parts of Houston yesterday as I drove around. Went from Hockley to Crosby and back home. Lot of driving.
But I did get a billable half day at my client’s place, and I’ll get another on Friday or next Monday to put it back together. And I got some good stuff for the households.
Today I need to do more. I need to do some grocery shopping (will take D1 as part of her daddy together time) since she has been whining about the snacks I don’t put in their lunches. I have a couple of pickups that I can do, if the timing works. And I’ve got to get stuff out of the foyer, because the GS cookies arrive at noon today.
The welding machine I picked up looks like it’s in decent shape for its age. The leads are cracked and too old but I’ve got NIB replacements somewhere… I don’t think I’ll have time to test it for a while. Too much to do.
And my brain is foggy right now, so short shrift today in the blogging column. Go read Peter’s post about supply chain issues in the spare and repair parts field, https://bayourenaissanceman.blogspot.com/ for more confirmation bias that we are rapidly slipping backwards. The problem will really be when we lose the ability to fix the machines we need to make the parts to fix the machines. That is going to hurt, and take a long time to recover from.
I’m adding oil filters for all three vehicles and at least a case of oil to the stack this week. Hopefully Costco will have it on sale, as they didn’t last month. If these were normal times, that means it would be on sale this month. Oil for the gennies wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
So many things to stack. So get busy stacking.
