Hey all, I am back in action after 8 days inn the hospital with Covid. in addition to the virus, I had a severe case of diverticulitis, my BP shot sky high, had a urinary tract infection and my kidneys stopped working. Man, I guess I was in pretty bad shape according to my wife. Doctor confirmed when I was discharged. I was completely out of it during the week. Feeling better now, not 100% but better.

Also, low 50's here today and tomorrow!

50's today after a "big" snow event here is St. Louis. After living in Minneapolis for the last 20 years it is laughable how no one knows how to drive in the snow. The city literally shut down over 8 inches of snow.

Reminds me of when I was in tach school at Shepard Field in Wichita Falls, Tx. in 1969 and it snowed about that same depth. They closed the whole town, and the base for a week! We all got liberty for the week, which was great for me as I was waiting for my class to start and was supposed to be doing KP all week until it started!

We're balmy and hit 59 degrees yesterday. Supposed to be high 50's to low 60's the rest of the week here! And gorgeous summer clear days!

More 50's today and the snow is rapidly melting! Had to have an ultrasound this morning as I am having pain in my right side under my ribs. Doc is suspecting pancreatitis, but who the hell knows. My luck would be f'ing cancer. Getting tired of all this stuff.

Spring is here for the day today! We hit just shy of 60 degrees, and even a flannel shirt felt a little too warm outside today!
I had maintenance to do on my '69 Suburban today as it's had a couple clicking lifters. And since it sits so much with the alarm set I found the battery was nearly dead! Put the battery on the charger as I pulled valve covers, and readjusted the valves. By the time I got it all readjusted, and new gaskets on she was charged up, and started right up.
Guess I need to drive it more, even if gas is spendy now.

60 is nice. We had a tease yesterday of 50. Today was same with the sun out. Storage is tuff on a battery for sure. Hope you get the lifter or rocker clicking figured out.

They were almost all a little loose Mario. Only noticed it one day while cruising down the freeway around 75 mph, and heard it at 3000 rpm's. My wife even noticed it and asked if I needed oil or something? She's a pretty savvy car gal, so I stopped to check oil level, and it was OK. Had the valve cover gaskets for over a month now, but I rarely drive the truck since my wife got her new car, and I inherited her old Fusion.
But it sounds sweet now, so maybe I should drive it at least once every couple weeks to keep the battery charged.
