  Been a little rough sailing the last week or two. I think it's the Pollen but I seem to have sinuses and bronchitis. I hate to take meds for it because that always brings about a yeast infection. So far I've made slow progress taking a lot of Vit D. I also finally saw what Mark was talking about when he said the dentures could make a sore in the mouth. I take them out when I'm home and put them back in when I'm out. Also discovered the Polident thing, glue them babies in where I can sink my teeth into something and still keep them in my mouth. :)

  Between the down days I managed to break the lawn mower, fix it, then mow both yards and break the ground where the green beans and corn will go. Done that all in a day, then crashed a couple of days. Got a butt chewing from Megan last week when I took off on the bike. I felt good enough and just wanted to ride it up town. She thought I was hurt laying somewhere. All the vehicles were here but she never checked in the garage for the bike. Sometimes it's just night to cruise.

  Me and Denise went to Unicoi today and I bought what I call, Bigger Uglier. The guy wasn't totally honest on a few things but close enough. Tonight I placed Big Ugly on Craigslist, just as promised. I've worked on and off on that truck and it has never let me down yet, hate to see it go. This one though has a 16 ft bed, all steel and it dumps! That was my intentions for Big Ugly but this truck will carry more weight. It will take more work, money, and time to get this one though as good as Big Ugly. With a long driveway here and the farm I can't shovel the gravel and can't afford to pay to have them delivered. This will, or at least should, take care of that, plus pull the hay floats if we need to bring hay in. It's automatic too so we all should be able to drive it. It's just a little bit longer, ok, a lot longer. I thought about selling Blackie instead but the kids said no, too many memories.

  Man I hope this chest and bronchitis stuff clears before my next visit in April. Wouldn't that be a bummer. I finally get a dump truck and don't get to dump anything with it, lol. For the record, Mary hit one already. I'll be worrying what it will cost to fix a truck up and if I paid too much for it.
