267/365 New Coffee Maker

The old one was leaking so my Wife picked up this one today at Walmart.  Same make and model as the old one, just a new design.  I don't drink coffee all day but only until 10am or so.

265/365 Fountain

My other Brother and his wife are in from Ohio and we ate here today.  It is a new place called "Cheddars".  It was OK.  100 more to go.  Congratulations to all that are this far or beyond.

264/365 Finalized Probate

As some may know my Father passed away in December of 2010.  I am the Executor of the Estate.  My Brother and I finalized everything a couple of days ago as far as the legal system is concerned.  Went downtown and filed the paperwork.  Should be no problems so I should get the paperwork back signed by the Judge in a week or so.  Glad I'm done, though I didn't have any type of major problems.  It really went smoothly.

260/365 Tune Up Time!

My Ride had a cold miss on cold mornings.  It only missed for about 30 seconds then would run just fine.  I figure it was needing a tune-up since it has over 135k miles and I'm sure it has never had one.  Cost me around $50 in parts; a new distributor cap, ignition rotor, 6 spark plugs and spark plug wires.  I bought them from NAPA.  Took me a couple of hours.  The hardest thing about it was the console cover.  Pain to remove and install because of the carpeting.

259/365 Brandi Snoozing

Caught Brandi snoozing and was actually able to get a shot before she woke up.  Have a great weekend everyone!

258/365 Old Silver Coins

Picked up these old silver coins today.  Got them at a decent price.  Now these are what's referred to as "junk" because they're only worth the silver content.  Some advice, never clean "any" old coin, even the junk ones as it detracts somewhat from the value.  Best coin in this lot is the Morgan dollar.  It's really nice but I think it too has been cleaned. :(

257/365 Nutty Frog

A frog figure created with nuts, washers and other things.  I didn't do the creating just the shot! :D

256/365 Super Mower!

Won this off of eBay at a great price.  It's an EverRide Wasp 36 inch mower.  Came with all kinds of extra equipment/accessories and a 5x8 trailer!  Used it on the empty lot across the street.  Grass was really high but this handled it.  A slight "learning curve" for the operator but I finally got it somewhat.  Did quite a few circles!  Got it mostly to do family/charity work but you never know!

255/365 New Shed

Need some more space in the house so bought a new 8'x10' shed.  Still needs the shingles installed.  Waiting on the skylight/vent.  They are returning in the am to finish up.  A couple of weeks wait and just slightly over $1300.  I'm happy.

Old rusty fence.  HFF.  Sorry I've not been as active as I would like to be.  Thanks everyone for your comments and encouragement!

251/365 Nine Months

My Father has been gone for 9 months as of today.  Hard to believe it has been that long.  Couldn't come up with anything so I found this when I was cutting my In laws grass today.  Caught a little critter I didn't see until I downloaded these.  My Friend and Co-Workers: Garry died today of a massive heart attack.  I'll miss him too! :(

250/365 Belated Birthday Cake

This is a triple or quadruple chocolate cake my Brother gave me for my birthday.  I got it today because he was out of town on my birthday.  I blurred my name because  "Joe" is my middle name but he usually calls me by my first name.  And yes the cake is delicious. :D

248/365 Cool Sunset

Only got into the mid to high 60 F's today.  After the hottest Friday and Saturday of the year, 100+F.  It was in the 80 F's yesterday.  Going to be cool tomorrow too.  The hurricane created a beautiful sunset.
