Having a bad week

First thing, Monday I was out on my tractor trying to keep ahead of the weeds and bushes growing up everywhere and I had a flat on a front tire. I had put tubes in them because they won't hold tubeless anymore. Broke the tire down and took the tube to be patched, was 1/2 way to town when I realized it was a holiday, nothing open. Early Tuesday I took it and got it patched, didn't like the way the kid did it but I took it home and put it back in the tire, put it on the tractor and went back to work. This morning it's flat again. Sure the patch didn't hold I broke the tire down again and took the tube out, the stem was broken. OK, enough of that. My little Suzuki DR200 wasn't running right so I started working on the carb. Doesn't make sense, it floods over when running but not running the float level holds steady. Have it apart and I notice I have lost the needle valve, can't find it anywhere. I think I'll just hole up for a while.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

our grass is getting too tall also, and it rained heavy again today, and it takes two days of sunlight before it is dry enough to mow.....

did a last ditch effort last week before the deluge hit us, was throwing up water spray when I went through the low spots... but got it all down.....
had to power wash the deck about every 15 minutes, it was bogging up so bad.

Now, we are running out of DATA on our Verizon Data Plan....
My LTE modem's simcard was destroyed by an idiot at AT&T...
in fact, that jerk destroyed 10,000+ Simcards in one fell swoop, and I am waiting for a new Simcard so we can get back on the internet.

how did the Internet become so valuable to our life?

didn't even know what it was in 1988.

Dave, the older I get it seems I have more days like you had. Sometimes it's best to just stop and go take a nap.

John, without an e-mail address and internet access it's getting hard to apply for a job, a lot of large corps want your resume done on line first.

Judge me by my size do you...size matters not
