July 30th and 31st good news bad news

Parked in the back out of the way how long?????

The new temp tow car

Pretty decent shape for a 1988 tires over 80% worth more then I paid for the truck
Roger and Susie's Travels Yesterday 30th (good news) I gave Stuart the day off /Launched the boat for a month of fishing and cruising in the marina /got the little tow car towed in to the garage for hydraulic clutch assessment for repairs (bad news) the tow car assessment is over $2000.00 not happening towed back home on the 31st for me to deal with at a latter date. July 31st (good news) I went and did nine holes of golf to take my mind off the dilemma (good news) on the way home I came across a temp vehicle to take the place of our little tow car till I can fix it myself not as pretty and a few running gear noises but nothing I can't deal with. The price was right $400 cash 1988 Blazer S10 4x4 with tires worth more then the truck (good news) Stuart got picked up by Tracy,s friend Leah for a few days of fun with her family and friends They will be doing a lot of trail bike riding etc will be cool for Stuart

These are the cushion's out of the boat I am working on now I am getting them cleaned I am sure they haven't been cleaned from day one 1980's

The end of the day sitting up by the pond water fall enjoying the sound of the water fall etc

Roger and Susie's Travels Well today I got Susie up early and we went golfing at Mulligans I have to say she did considerably better then the first time ( she actually beat me at one hole) So I am planning about once a week so she can train for our tournament in Stone Island RV (at Estra Del Mar golf club) we had a good time sorry no pic,s of that the rest of the day was my usual working on the boat or other things

Monday 9th 012

This boat needs major cleaning in the cabin

Oh Oh some dry rot  (actually wet and cannot breath commanlly found in houses ) found in the cabin floor and  can be fixed caught in time but disapointment ( alot of extra work )

It will look better when I am finished

We have 2 of these old mike cans used as planters

All that is missing is the John deer decal

Roger and Susie's Travels Today not quite as exciting I did get up a 5:30 and I did go golfing but no surprises today came home had a nap in the man cave then went about business a usual got into the boat project only to find extra work ( a boat at this age early eighty's can be expected  ) also working on an old project that Susie finally convinced me to start these are things you normally do in the winter but what can I say we are in Mexico
