Thank you, Lord, for uneventful days! Sometimes we just need a little break from hustling and bustling about!
Mark and Michelle worked once again on the Explorer.. .this time, on replacing the rear brakes. The front brakes are done! They were doing well until a stripped bolt on one of the calipers stopped them dead in their tracks. Drat! Mark came in the house and got online to discover there is a specific tool made for extracting bolts, so he and Ben ran to Canandaigua this evening to buy it. Yay! I think…
This morning, we were discussing some work that needs to be done on the Explorer. Mark said that it is pretty complicated and involves removing a lot of parts as well as needing special tools. We got online to see if there were any auto shops nearby that might be able to do the repairs. As we were looking, we came across a place not too far away. As I thought about it, I told Mark the fellow is the son of one of my customers!
Mark gave the garage a call and we were both pleasantly surprised to find this guy not only knows his stuff, but is fair about his pricing as well. He told us he even goes to Ford School to learn the latest on Ford products. Mark is hoping to finish the rear brakes tomorrow so we can get the Explorer to this mechanic! What a find!
I took very few photos today, but I discovered a Dragonfly I don’t think I have seen here before!
Man, what a challenge it was trying to get this guy’s photo! The wind was blowing all day…leaves were falling from the trees and if they weren’t so green, it would have been a perfect October day! I love brisk days like this and I fully enjoyed it!
Remember the tiny butterfly I saw in the grass yesterday? Well if this isn’t the same butterfly, maybe it is a sibling!
While that dragonfly was hard to photograph, this little fellow was really tricky! The little fellow is so tiny and the leaves were bouncing up and down…up and down! The wee little guy looked like he was surfing on the ocean! Add to that the fact that I had mounted my telephoto lens that weighs about three pounds to capture these macro shots and I was having some fun out there!
One more…remember I mentioned all the honeybees working on the daisies at WalMart the other day?
This afternoon, I saw so many honeybees working away on the daisies that grow wild here in the Bristolwood.
Time to call it a day…uneventful or not, I am tired!
