Sunday, November 13, 2022 – Most of the Day at Glenn’s

Hiya Darlin’!
So yesterday, another explicable thing happened. Remember a few days ago, when the tractor lug was in my pocket and I couldn’t find it for hours, then suddenly it just reappeared? Well, the same thing happened yesterday with my credit card. A few weeks ago, I had used it at a gas station, and thought I had put it in the pocket of my jeans, but when I went to look for it, I couldn’t find it there, or anywhere else. I searched the truck, the trailer, everywhere I could think of, and didn’t find it. I already had a spare so I activated that, figuring eventually the other one would turn up, though I don’t know how. Then yesterday, while I was grooming Apollo, it suddenly appeared on the ground right in front of me. I have no clue. I wasn’t wearing the same jeans, of anything other of the same clothing, and unless it was tangled in Apollo’s mane, which is impossible, I have no clue how it appeared on the ground beneath me. I must be going crazy! Those dang gremlins! Well, that was yesterday. Today was a busy day. After chores and breakfast I headed into town, stopped at the IGA for four gallons of bleach, then headed to brother Glenn’s. First, I had to deal with his pool, a breaker on his pump had snapped, and I had to go through the process of cleaning and starting it up again, but it’s a real mess. I’m convinced his salt water chlorinator isn’t working right, but I’m no expert. I put in two gallons of bleach and some muriatic acid and got it started, then I tried to sharpen the blades on his mower with a hand sharpener, which helped a little, but not as much as I was hoping, mowed the lawn, stopping several times to check on the pool and had to clean out the filters on a couple of occasions. It hasn’t been getting the full flow for the last week, but I managed to get it again by cleaning his big filter and all the little filters, again. Everything was in slow motion today. Sharpened the mower blades again afterward, hoping next time it will cut better. Finally set the pool to run continuously for the next few days, hoping that will finally make some headway on clarifying the pool. Good news is, I drove the Buick all the way here and back! Still bucking quite a bit, hoping it’s just the premium fuel and fuel injection cleaner working it’s way through the system, and nothing anything else more serious, like the transmission or something. Anyway, I made it, and it seems to be improving, albeit marginally, and I’m hoping it will eventually clear itself out. Didn’t get back to camp until nearly 5:00, so not much rest today! Finally settled down for the evening, managed to finish one load of laundry. Had a few rain showers, so things have cooled down nicely. Looking forward to my shower and bed! Good night, babe! Love you!
