Today I worked at a friend's house on rebuilding his marine diesel engine. It felt good to get some grease under the nails and on my hands. He was my instructor for the marine engine maintenance class that I took last year. We replaced the thermostat, rebuilt the raw water pump, and did some compression testing on the engine. For the last few hours, I had to use hand signals because I couldn't talk. I did manage to croak out a "Thank you" for the great dinner they fixed.
After I got home, I helped put up some of the fall decorations. Every season, we enjoy changing decorations. Spooky spiders, fall foliage, rolling eyeballs, and lit pumpkins are some of the fun things that we use to decorate for fall. Here are just a few photos of what we do:
|Pumpkins are put outside and inside the house.|
|This eyeball lights up when you roll it around.|
|Pumpkin lights are fun in one of the garage windows.|
|And who wouldn't be scared of this!|
We hope to go on the boat for the weekend. The weather is supposed to turn cool on Saturday. The low may be around 49 F. I can't wait. Enough with the humidity and a very hot summer. I am ready for blue skies, crisp weather, and the smell of autumn.
Well, that's about it from here. I am going to say good night. Hopefully, I'll be a bit more coherent tomorrow.
