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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I used to have a friend, I say "used to" because he died last year, who had both hips replaced with artificial ones.
 
So, are they for sale---maybe at a lower, used pre-owned cost?

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.

Yes, but you have to use a very coarse 40 grit belt.

I started sanding the deck, it was the gnats that were bothering me out there. The belt sander does a good job of removing any loose paint.  The biggest problem is...I do like to get an early start. These clear and cool mornings make for a heavy dew on everything. I can't do much of anything with it until it's dry.  I'll finish the prep work on the right half tomorrow, Mama said she would do the painting.
