My day didn't get off to a very good start.  The mosquitoes are terrible!  I mopped the dew off of the deck, plugged in my sander and...NOTHING!  WTF?  I switched long extension cords, it still doesn't work.

While I was fiddling with it, it came on and took off a couple layers of skin on my (you're number 1) finger. Ouch!  I took the damned thing apart! There was a lot of paint chips and other crud all around the motor.

The second time I took it apart, I used compressed air to clean it out.  What a mess! It works again but I doubt I'm going back out there.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

My ass is dragging. I have the right side of the deck ready for paint. After another morning of scraping and sanding...and skeeters the size of sparrows, I washed it off with the garden hose.

This is me riding my old tractor out to the deck, I've been pushing my bad hip to the limit!  I may HAVE to see the doctor, I have a very high pain threshold. If I can't walk, it's time to see if they can help or fix it.

I used to have a friend, I say "used to" because he died last year, who had both hips replaced with artificial ones.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

So, are they for sale---maybe at a lower, used pre-owned cost?

I suppose, but you'd have to dig them up yourself though.

LOL

I tried to find 'Used Replacement Hip Parts'.

The results were mostly Class Action Lawsuits concerning metal on metal joints and failures. And, if you can cremate a body with metal parts.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

My friend had one of his old, original metal-on-metal ones that had to be replaced with a newer one that had some kind of plastic material lining the socket part. It was on his desk, so I picked it up and asked him what it was. "Oh, that's my old hip" he says.

Weird.

Damn, PaW!

What kind of neighborhood is the 'Swamp Estate' located?

This feels like a swamp around here, high water levels and prime mosquito breeding ground.

She was kinda cute in a hood-kinda-way with no visible chancres, much less any noticeable stank. YES, Yes, yes...of course she was black.

It was raining earlier today, I am kind of obsessed with getting the work on the deck and the dock done.

I thought it was good to give my cut up right hand a chance to heal, the belt sander is kinda tough on my upper body muscles too. My hip is killing me.  I actually took a nap in the recliner today.  That never happens.

The Mobil station has a small hardware store, I have one board on the deck that has some rot.  I have filled this small hole before the last time I painted it.  They didn't have any wood putty.  I may have to send my wife to the big 'O'. Wink

You should try to figure out a way to attach that belt sander to a pole of some kind.

Get something like this...



...or maybe rent a deck sander?

More rain overnight, much cooler today and windy as a MoFo!.  The predicted low temp. for tonight is 37 degrees.



I finished scraping and sanding the left half of the deck.  I can only scrape when the surface is wet, that caused quite a delay.  I also painted the part that I prepped the other day.  The dock will go faster, less surface area and the surface will need less prep work.  We have a privacy fence next to the house that needs some touching up too. Same color.

I'm gonna have to think about taking the boat out of the water next week too.
