I got home from work and started working (I've been taking it a little TOO easy, I fear). First I replaced the burned out bulb on the south side of the garage. It's my security light for that side of the house and is on 24/7. The screws that hold the glass in were a little rusty, so before replacing them, I put some grease on them. I put in another 60 watt fluorescent bulb. Now, I know on the pack, they all say they last five years, but this last one was only good for about three years! Where is the truth in advertising? We'll see how long the new one lasts...
Next I replaced the leaking back faucet. I added a few extra pieces of pipe to get it to a more user-friendly location. Then, I started raking the south side front lawn, from the road to the backyard fence. I got about 8 feet short of where I wanted to stop, when my back screamed, "Stop!" So, I did. I took some photos and went in to post them.
I made an fantastic dinner! I warmed up one of the pork steak and, as my sample had promised, it was excellent. My side dish was excellent, too. I had bought a bunch of beets with the tops on, so I cut off the greens and chopped them up. Then I boiled them in a little water and ate then with a little vinegar, just like my mother made when I was a lad.
I watched NCIS (a drama I like) from 8:00 to 9:00 PM, and then started reading my book. I went to sleep around 10:30 PM.
