This week I have been doing some Honey Do's that have been waiting for me a while.  #1 on the list was to change the wipers on 'K's car.  Since we weren't using it much at all since the AC had quit I didn't have to worry about it.  Now 'K' has been cleared to drive and the AC is working I went and got her 3 new blades.  Sheesh, 60$ for 3 wipers!  I actually got them installed without cracking the windshield this time or the shedding of any blood.  I also worked on her headlights, the cars, not hers.  You know those silly plastic covers that get cloudy over time?  They were not good.  Watched a few videos on U toob university and decided on one that seemed like it would be best.  Baking Soda and water paste rubbed on and off.  After 3-4 tries it's better but not as good as I want it.  So I found another video from a mechanic and bought the kit her recommended.  I will be here a a couple days and I will hit those headlights again and get them looking like I want them. 

We have extremely hard water.  This requires regular maintenance of faucet aerators, shower head and toilet flaps.  Those were all taken care of, new flaps and sanding the top of the pipe the flaps close on.  Those things caused the toilet leak just enough that it would refill itself when it got low.  It invariably happened while I was in the shower.  It doesn't always work the first time but I think I got it. 

Not much else is happening at the moment and the weather is a bit uncertain.  Rained Thursday evening with more expected through Saturday.  that will delay working on the headlights as they can't be exposed to water for 24 hours.  I will most likely just goof off and watch a little college football and especially tonight when my team plays one of those teams from just over the Red River.  This team has had their number the last few years.  I think pay back will happen tonight.  

Happy Trails
