Saturday Night and Sunday Day

By , May 11, 2008 11:49 pm

No real biggie just long and tiring.
With the storms and rain Saturday night leaks developed or redeveloped as it were. Had one in the Q-hut roof/side that only leaks when the rain is blowing in certain random directions and it was pouring in all the right directions so we had nearly an inch of standing water in the front corner by the time I noticed it. Got the towels out and started soaking it up/damming it up to hold till the morrow. Rain slowed down so we went to bed around 1:00 am. By 1:30 got worse and then much worse so I got back up to go and check the front leak. Down the stairs and into water. The wet weather spring that has been dry for the past two years decided to become active again. So I pulled the carpet up and removed to boards and such to get to the hole in the ground where I could bail and started to do so. And bailed, and bailed. Cat got up and went in front and started wringing out towels and adding more. Rain started tapering off around 3 and she got to bed. I finally got done with bailing around 4 and back to bed and around daylight to sleep.

Up and out of here about 10:30 am and headed to Calcis, by way of Logan Martin dam where we ate lunch while watching the birds eat theirs. After eating we drove on into Calcis and to Cat’s mother’s house and after they visited a while we headed back here. Picked up my mothers stuff and went to visit there for a bit. Back here a bit after 6 pm and after changing out the towels drying the carpet again ate supper. Read a bit, and wrote a post which I then managed to kill the browser and wipe it out and hit the sack about 9 pm.

Still beat today. Just got back in from a visit with a friend who came by to get some old equipment that was wasting away in the barn. Which took quite a bit of water the other night too as the floor is still soaking wet. Am gonna eat lunch and then take a siesta and hope it help the bod catch up a bit on the missed sleep. Till later… πŸ˜‰

Saturday round and about

Started out to go to Collinsville but instead headed to Gadsden and Poor Man’s Trade Day first. Bought some books and a couple of copper cannisters along with a pile of string and thread. Headed on to Goodwill and got a few more books, then to Apple A Day for something to drink and ate lunch at the gazabo by the water at the front of the parking lot. Rather pleasant place even with all the roads around. Left there and went toward Centre. Stopped at a yard sale and got ignored so left and stopped again at a Antique/junk place on 411. Cat found a few things and then we walked to a place next door that we had looked at before but had never been open. I saw a Delta jigsaw that the owner was asking $25 for and knew if it worked I wanted it. He came out and got a power cord and hooked it up. Worked quite well. Went in and looked at some other stuff he had and ended up with the jigsaw, a Makita 7 1/2 inch skill saw, a Craftsman router, a Craftsman biscuit joiner, a huge (minus one tap) tap and die set and some vases Cat wanted. Set me back a bit but less than just the tap and die set was worth. One of those right place, right time situations. From there went on into Centre and another junk store and got another load of books. Twas getting on to mid afternoon so headed back to Jacksonville and stopped at Smith and Hardwick and picked up some things for our Mom’s for Mothers Day. A couple of stops at grocery stores and a quick trip to the Dollar store at Lenlock and then home and supper finished off the remainder of the daylight hours. Been reading and decided to do the daily post and call it an early night, as we need to hit Flamingo to check on some books Lloyd said he was gonna bring in for us and then head to Calcis and then back to Weaver to do both Mothers Days tomorrow. So, till I type again… πŸ˜‰
