I will be sure and report on the seat when I get some ride time on it. Amazon had one bad review and three good ones. I bought it on amazon. $89.50, shipping included. Shipped fast from Nexride.

Bad review said a spring broke. Nexride will stand behind them. Once out of warranty they sell parts kits, and they have a short video on service on the site. Really simple. Only tool requred is slip ring pliers.

I am proud of myself today. I pruned out the ground cover evergreen from front flower bed that froze. Was 5 plants grown together. 2 died competely and I pulled them up. The other 3 are much smaller now. I plan to let the wife pick out something pretty to put in their place.

Sam's clubs has Blueberry bushes right now. Thinking of buying one.

Yeah I had to pull all of our front shrubs, they were toast. We had quite a few things die around the house. I am replacing them with stuff that doesnt need trimmed as often hopefully.

We had a couple of blueberry bushes at our old house, they were awesome! We really got alot of berries off of them in the summer. Had to keep netting over them to keep the birds out tho. We planted a couple recently and they both died.

I didn't think about the birds. My wife said out front people would steal our berries, I said if they do I will just start peeing on them every morning.

I could borrow Matt's BB gun for the birds. Neighbors too come to think of it.

I forgot to mention my other big task. I took everything out of the garage, swept it, blew it out with leaf blower, wet it down and swept out the water, let it dry, put it all back. Nice and clean with a hint of simple green aroma.

I just did this about a month ago. It's useless. Every time I open the garage, crap always blows in. I have to sweep about once a week to keep it at bay.

I don't think I would be able to handle that. It drives me nuts that Paula hasn't figured out to park the Jeep in there yet. 6' from the wall.

T.R. rocks even iff he has to use a shotgun cause he can't see. Having bad eye sight makes being a flat tracker a whole lot less scarey cause you don't see the scarey things....

I am impressed you only look & act about 42, I was wondering how you ........ well, you know......

Bawahahaha

Happy BD & all that rot.....
