Then I set off to a not-so-local Deere dealer with a gift certificate in my pocket to pick up a new rubber edge. I got the certificate for this "Deere in the Snow" picture that won a contest on their site:
The snow pic came out great! Very nice. Can't wait to see some grapple pictures, that is such a cool implement.

She will

She will be 17 this Sunday .
Sounds like a good kid Bebop. You should be proud to have raised her to be strong.

I got some seat time in today. I built a scarifier today and hooked it to the sleeve hitch on my Case 446. I spent about 3 hours going back and forth on my driveway. I added 25lbs of weight and it seems to work okay. I cut the teeth at about 30⁰ and they're worn down about an inch. While in the seat I thought about cutting a circular saw blade and bolting it to the teeth. I'll try that tomorrow. I'm planning on buying 26 yards of gravel and I wanted to get rid of the potholes 1st. I get 9 yards free from the county this year also. Box blade work with the 446 tomorrow also.

Got an old lawnmower blade lying around? Might make your teeth a little more durable.

Gave up on the one piece overhead door design today. It will end up being a two piece bifold. Just need to cut it into and add some hinges. Off to the spine specialist in the morning.
What you got going on in your back or neck?

@Jere39 and @Bebop Great day for you guys.

@Steve Urquell at least you knew it was beer day. I didn't know until I just read your post. Will have to make up for it this weekend...

Warm but slightly cloudy, perfect for working outside, so I have been doing. The garden is now completely tilled (round 1) so it's time to get some manure delivered for round 2.
Also lined the bottom of the aluminum box that rides in the back of Suzi to keep stuff from sliding around in it. Some rubber mat I found that I think is made to go under exercise machines and the like. Thick enough, 3/8 maybe, but easy enough to cut, and it was cheap (easily replaceable).

Didn't realize it was 1345 hours already... time's fun when you're having flies...

All the trees are blossoming real nice too, I might remember to take a picture later.

Brutal day today. CPR hands-on check off, Covid unit, staff meeting, and a 13 patient list which is impossible on any day without the rest added in. @MARK (LI) let me know it was Nat'l beer day so I HAD to begrudgingly participate.

Wife asked me to stop at the sto' and pick up a bag of ice. My local convenience store are the only ones I've ever seen carry Negra Modelo in the 22oz can so I wasn't upset about it. Sadly no Negra to be had so I grabbed this monster. 32oz High Life. We call this an "oil can" down South. Wife had tacos and homemade guacamole ready when I got home. Just settling in and the bottomless oil can is still going...

What keeps a 32 oz. beer can from getting warm and flat? I used to see guys buy 40 oz. beer bottles and wonder the same thing. Back in the day, I used to buy beer in 16 oz. cans (pounders) but that was back when I was pounding down beer pretty hard, they never got warm. I have never seen a 32 oz. can before, only the 40 oz. bottles.

Made more progress on my trailer build. Decided to bolt the bottom sheet down instead of welding/brazing it, as it doesn't seem worthwhile take the time to do it, with the only benefit possibly being a bit more stiffness for the frame, if I don't warp it welding it in place. Brazed on some square tubing to the top edges of the sides, and to all the sides of the tailgate. This went so-so, parts of it went well (maybe 1/8" bend over 38"), parts medium (bow in the tubing of just over 1/4"), and one length poor (the tube both bowed and twisted). Ran out of acetylene, so I finished up one of the side panels via welding, and that section went well (didn't bend much, also didn't blow through the metal, 16 gauge sheet metal, .065 wall tubing).

Mrs. Ronin shot down for the second night in a row... crashed at the shop last night after a long one and now more of the same.

Chicken, rice and salad for the Peanut and I.

Steady on.

Update... rupture plugged, dinner for three tonight.

Late beats never every time. (y) 🍻

It warmed slightly while it was being drank. I poured it in a 20oz mug so it didn't go flat as the can wasn't being tipped repeatedly. I could have put the can in the fridge while I was drinking the mug full but a slight temp change don't bother me after 14 years of beer brewing. I've drank plenty of samples straight out of the fermenter warm and flat with yeast hunks floating it it. :D
