Sat with my 85 year old Dad in the hospital for 13 grueling hours, and he's still there. The man is peeing blood like I have never seen before, so much I was in shock when I seen it( and keep in mind I started my career as a butcher!). I could sure use a Snowblower Forum Hug and Prayer for the old Gent.....I think he's in big trouble.:crying:
His Kidneys are failing.

Why Bother it will more than likely die off again. better do some Investigating on what is causing the problem.. :eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k::eek:k:

Thank you so much. I can fix a snowblower, lawnmower, vehicles, some electronics....but I can't fix this. Helpless.:sad2:

They actually checked this, and said it is not the issue.Right now, they don't know what is. So much of this stuff ends up being cancer.:sad2:

Today is an inside day. Trying to do some much needed sorting, throwing, arranging and relocating of things that managed to pile up over the winter. Since it's raining pretty good outside, inside is a good palace to be.
Yesterday I grabbed a well used metal cabinet free off craigslist for out in the shed so I have shelves to put stuff on and know where they're at. Trying to get it in the door and up on the Bench was a real pain in the back. That and having the door I had open so I had a grip slam on my hand a couple times. It's hard working alone. Still trying to find 8 small engine fuel filters from a 10pk I ordered. I know they're here someplace but not sure where that place is. :sad2: Looking forward to getting all my small engine parts and tools in there.
Came across the head gasket for the Troy tiller so time to prep the head and torque that gasket in place and get it up and running.
Finished planting all my free yellow iris yesterday. It was an out of the blue offer from my GFs friend. She was redoing her raised beds and they were badly overdue for being divided. Got a call on Sunday asking if I wanted them and she had two big buckets of them if I did. I ended up tilling up a strip at the edge of the food garden just to get them in the ground. Like it wasn't bad enough breaking them up into individual rhizomes then there was the bending over on hands and knees of planting them. They are way too close together as I was trying to get them all in the ground and had no plan for them. Will likely dig most up this fall and add to an area landscaped with flowers and shrubs. Right now there in this plot about 35' X 36". The two buckets were full, one is in the photo.
Well, back to cleaning. :wink2:

Changed the steering shaft on my Husky lawn tractor and the crescent ring gear with a replacement kit. Everything went back together impressively well. Result is great and I highly recommend this kit.

Left over parts...

Picked up a new-to-us refurbished laptop computer for my wife at the local computer shop/store. I did ask for a couple of upgrades including 16GB RAM because occasionally I run Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom on it when we travel and those programs like lots of memory. A bit over $500 for a computer that would be well over two grand if we ordered it new.

First day this year (for me) working outside in a t-shirt because it was warm enough, trimming some bushes that needed it already. I don't come out of long sleeves until it hits 80°. The Stihl hedge trimmer fired right up and made easy going of it. Oh, and moved the Ariens Deluxe 24 on the wheels in the basement to try preventing flat spots on the tires. I do that about once a month, one of these days I'll get around to putting together something to lift it off the wheels. In the meantime that's my workaround.
