    Shoot me now

    After 5 straight years of surgeries, broken or defective bones/joints I went out today to clean up a bit around my house. I moved all my snowblowers (I sell them in the winter) around the back of my property. I only needed to move 5. I cut all my residential lawn. Changed the oil on my 13hp tractor. (I left the gas valve open in error, I guess 2-3 pints leaked into the crankcase so no way I could run it without killing it.) I made sure the blower gas were all shut off after gassing them with 93 oct. ethanol free. I took my Vue for a short spin. (I can't go too far as the alt. is not working and modern cars drain batteries like crazy)

    I vacuumed out my Vue and Puma and 2017. I did a mini clean and org of my 2017. It was a total mess. I got lazy.

    After all that I feel like I spent 12 hours at a coal face with a pick and shovel. (Having done that for real as a very young man I know how it feels) I suspect I'm going to take an involuntary nap soon.
