Finished knitting a hat and cowl scarf for my daily walk on cold winter days.
Used #15 circular needles and Thick & Quick yarn. Added two buttons on the hat to secure a mask.

I noticed yesterday that someone had scraped my wife's front bumper. When I told her she was really bummed. It's a newer car and now has a bad blemish.

Today I got out my buffer and multiple compounds. I was able to get the vast majority of the scrapes cleaned up. If you look really closely, you can still see small scratches, but at 3 feet you can't see anything. Once it's sunny out again, I'll finish it up and it'll look like new..

Drove by my new home and saw them install the first floor. Walls go up this week. On target for a March move in.

That looks like a great footprint for a house! Is that single level or multi level? Congrats again and enjoy!

Two stories, but the bulk of the home is on the first floor. 3,330 SF total.

My friend and I went to Busch Gardens Williamsburg and rode the Catapult Ride.

I doubt many 66-year-old ladies did that the day after Thanksgiving. Banana

Lost my favorite pair of sunglasses that must have slipped from atop my head while I was bent down photographing mushrooms. I went back in the rain and searched but they're gone for good.

I bought a new Tundra 1794. It's gorgeous. When will it snow again so I can go light it up?

The San Antonio build, correct? Congrats! Excellent choice! Not sure if your first 3UR-FE motor, but they are awesome (as is the rest of the chassis)....if you do your own oil service you are gonna be seriously WTF when you first dink w that filter cartridge.

Yes, San Antonio. I ended up taking it back yesterday. They let me take it home before actually signing for it. The saddle leather didn't 'grow' on me over the weekend. Looks great on a horse, but it's a little too much yeehaw in my truck. Felt like Hoss on the Ponderosa. So, now they are hoping to get me a regular Platinum by the 28th to get the end of year deal. I have changed plenty of oil, but you made me go look at that engine to see what was up. Lol, yeah it is a pita and requires a special spanner wrench. Looks like they at least designed an access panel in the TRD skid plate to get to it easier.

On the oil service, first time will be unusual, but you'll "get it" from there on out...no clue why the departure from a spin on.

I must have at least three different types of oil filter spanners, but took one look at my Tundra and said "Nope" not even going to try. I treat myself to oil changes now.

I used to be a VW/Audi driver. Have had several vehicles with cartridge filters in housings. The talk was that a strong Green Party and environmental concerns is reason for replaceable cartridge filter elements. Easier to crush and extract waste oil and the element is less waste.

Yup, that and to insure the by pass valve worked exactly as designed...all about oil flow..especially critical w the 0/20 weight oils (v 5/30 ) now being specked.

Audi's......lovely cars...but, man o man....I don't think an engineer could possibly design a more overly "complicated" vehicle..

Extracted 3 gallons of honey from a dead beehive. Obviously the honeybees didn't starve so I put it down as another COVID19 casualty.

Cool!

I had the pleasure to do this on "the road to nowhere" near Steinhatchee, FL. Did good with the 12 gauge, and getting a new one very soon. This is a friend at the ready.
