Well, not my oil. The Truckâ€™s oil. About time too. Danged info box thingie said I had only 46% oil life left. How they figure that, I donâ€™t know. But, the oil changes have been free (except for buying a really expensive truck) so I donâ€™t care how they figure that out. That may change when I have to start paying for oil changes though (and I have only 1 free oil change left). My last truck the oil got changed every year (or two) and it lasted 10 years. (Was still in pretty good shape when I traded it in too.)
Guy at the Service Department says my Cabin Air Filter is getting kind of dirty. (I live down a dirt road.) And the Engine Air Filter is getting kind of dirty. (I still live down a dirt road.) Give me another year and Iâ€™ll take care of that right away.
Not much else going on. Supposed to get up to around 80 degrees today so the Dog and I will probably take all our clothes off and wash the truck. Gotta get the smashed bugs from 5 States off the front and windshield!
Started moving the 2-meter antenna to the corner of the house. What fun! Tomorrow (or soon) Iâ€™ll make sure itâ€™s straight up and set it in cement. Then to buy another 11 foot pole so I can run this thing up higher. If that doesnâ€™t work then I donâ€™t know. Seems 40 feet up would be enough to hit the MCARC repeater in Shelton with a great signal. If not, I may need to buy/make a new antenna. Club President should keep in touch, you know.
Picked SWMBO up at the bus stop this evening. Sheâ€™s lookinâ€™ good! Not much else going on. Watching â€œKnowingâ€ and just messing around until bedtime. MCARC meeting tomorrow so I get to get up early on Saturday. (But Iâ€™d be awake by 0600 anyway.)
