Tuesday, March 21, 2023 – Half Tax Half Pressure Washer Repair Day

Hey Darlin’,
My hip was a bit sore last night for some unknown reason, so I took a couple of ibuprofen and ended up having a good night sleep. Spent the morning working on my taxes but got delayed with a problem question I had about my IRA, so I stopped for awhile, waiting for answers. I received the new motor for the pressure washer yesterday, and spent the afternoon putting it in, but as I was doing it, I realized the problem was more likely the pump than the motor. Usually they come as a unit, but all I got was the motor, so I greased up the pump really well, because the gears seemed to be all but frozen. It helped, but when I finally got it back together and went to check it out, it was a pretty weak stream and didn’t behave like it was going to last very long. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find a pump for it, so I don’t know what I’m going to do just yet. Did some pool cleaning, Jeff found his wire brush so I did the walls, then finally settled down for the evening to an old classic, The Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara. Can’t believe I’ve never seen that movie! Of course, today people would go nuts over the “domestic abuse,” but it was a great movie, certainly by the standards of the time! Some of the Duke’s best work. Anyway, ready for shower and bed, hoping for another good night sleep. Love you, sweetie! Good night!
