Tuesday had still above average temperatures, but it was mostly overcast and windy, so it wasn’t all that pleasant. I took the trash out to the road before leaving for work.

I went to lunch at the Newburgh Grill. On the way there, I passed what I thought was one of those little electric snow blowers, sitting out to the road.

I went wild when ordering lunch. I had a cup of the bean with ham soup (of course), a coney dog and onions rings! All were delicious!

On the way back, I spotted that snow blower again. On impulse, I swung in to look at it. It was small, but it was a gas-powered Toro Powerlite CCR-E. So, I put it in the truck.

I figured I’d drop it off Saturday at George’s Lawnmower Service just down the road from me on Plymouth. They are an old family business and I’ve had work done there before. I figured I’d get an estimate on getting it fixed and, depending on the cost, either get it done or put it out to the road on the next garbage day.

Sidebar: I survived the worst winter’s snow ever the first year I got the truck, just by using the four-wheel drive, so I'm not worried about me. But, now that I have folks coming over in cars, I guess I have to plan for that.

Back home, I unloaded the snow blower and then fetched the trash can and mail.

Inside, I treated the cat and changed clothes. I watched the news until the weather was over and then got to work. I gave all the cabinet doors I had painted the second coat of paint on their backs. Once again, I had drying doors everywhere!

I warmed up some pot roast, potatoes, onions and carrots for dinner. I topped them with the au jus and ate an excellent meal.

I watched NCIS and then started watching NCIS New Orleans. But, I fell asleep around 9:30 p.m. I woke up at midnight, went to the bathroom and turned everything off. Then I went to bed for real.


  1. Good luck with the snow blower find!

  2. Thanks! It was just a whim, but it might pay off. We'll see...
