Friday, we seemed to have turned the corner back to Summer again here in Southeast Michigan. It was just about perfect and the weekend is supposed to be even better!

I went to Harbor Freight at lunchtime and bought a motorcycle lift and some mechanic’s gloves they had on sale. I also bought a caliper. I had one before when I worked in the factory, but “somebody” threw them away when we moved from St. Clair.

The lift was really heavy, BTW, and it was all I could do to get it in the basket and then into my car!

Since I was down that way and had the time, I stopped at Ten Yen and had my usual for lunch. I love their jasmine tea!

Vicky, her mother Evy and Yanessa stopped by work in the afternoon. It was the first time I met Evy and she looked exactly how I had pictured her!

I got home after work and got the motorcycle lift out of the trunk (Thank God). I opened it up and found there was some assembly required. Why was I not surprised? And, why does everything you buy there have that weird “rubber” smell to it?

I did a load of laundry and a lot of computer stuff (it was payday, so I had money to move about, bills to pay online and my check register to balance). I also filled out the ToDo list for the weekend (looks like a busy one).

I didn’t have anything planned for dinner, so I made a Marie Callender’s entrĂ©e (Chicken and broccoli over noodles) in the microwave.

By then it was late, so I just watched a taped TV show after reading the lift assembly instructions. Then I went to bed.
