Automotive joint replacement surgery

After 330,000 miles the Rolling Steel Tent’s front suspension was getting a little wonky. When I took it in for an alignment a few months ago they came back and said it would be pointless because my ball joints and hub bearings were too worn. I was not surprised. I had more important things to deal with, so I put off the repairs until yesterday. Now my home tracks straight and even steers a little easier. Onward!

Post-storm treat

 A rain storm blew in this evening. Not only did it make me happy because it washed pollen from the air, it bid farewell with a double rainbow.

Sufferin' a bit

Monsoon season greened up everything, including the grassland covering most of Lou’s ten acres. Now the pollen is making me miserable. Eyes itchy and swollen. Runny nose rubbed raw by dollar store tissues. Hope we get a little more rain to knock the pollen out of the air.
