Plain and simple;

 

The older you get the harder it is to come back from things that insult your body!

 

A month and a half from supposed same day surgery and it does not take much to sap energy.  At least the incision has mostly healed and the Visiting Nurse is happier.  Think Estella is happier as the requirements of care have been greatly reduced.

 

We have a German Short Hair Pointer as a member of the family.  At least she gives Estella something to holler at instead of me.

Gary, good to hear you're on the mend.  Hope you and Estella are doing well.  Give the dog a pat on the head.  :angel-praying-still:

Don't rush the recovery, slow and steady.  Rest is your friend.

Hey, Gary

How're you doing?  Getting better I hope.  Leslie and I keep you guys in our prayers and look forward to your occasional post here.  Give Estella a hug and the dog a pat on the head for us.

Got the boss, Estella's, permission to get busy at doing things again since the wound is healed and the Visiting Nurses said OK.  Saturday I worked 8 hrs building a vehicle lift to go on the back of Frankentruck.  Sunday we drove to Beecher City and picked up a 81 Dodge pickup.  Bought it for the automatic trans and slant 6 and got the whole truck for a few $$ more.  Actually in better body shape than our 85 short bed so maybe will do a valve job and just drive it.  Odometer shows 50k and all things like brake pedal rubber pad, accelerator pedal, seat condition suggests it might be actual miles.

 

Monday we used a drag to start leveling the pad where we lost old building in the fire.  Plan for parking vehicles there.  In the afternoon we blew out the flower beds and driveway clear of gumballs, mowed last years grass.  Tuesday chainsawed up a bunch of winter downed trees and limbs and then hooked the rock trailer behind Frankentruck.  That is a puzzle in running 6 winch line runs to dump trailer and then went and got a load of the stabilizer for fill.  Wednesday went to get another 5 tons of stabilizer (two loads) and had to repair the receiver hitch when a factory weld broke. 

 

Got the afternoon off if one calls spending 2 hours in the MD's office time off.

 

Sure feels good being able to be active again.

 

Here is the new to us pick up.  A rusted arch over left rear wheel and hole at the bottom behind each rear wheel.  Cab has no visible rust.  Someone in the past brushed brown primer on the top of the hood and cab.  Maybe it will come off with lacquer thinner. 

 

Life is better.  Plus the dog gives Estella something else to holler at.

Awesome, looks like you've got it beat.  Take it easy though, nothing worse than overdoing it and finding out to late.  You guys take care.
