Lu47Dan is still around

Post by Lu47Dan » Sat May 05, 2018 7:47 am

I am still alive and working on things, I had trouble with my phone line that carries the internet. A lightening strike took out the cable and the fused it to the conduit, the phone company will plow in a new cable but only on the most direct line. So I am working on my old hoe to cure the leaks and I will install new conduit and cable, once that is fixed.

Glad to hear! After owning a hoe for many years I'm convinced it has two modes of operation.

1) About to Leak
2) Leaking

I'm always changing hoses or rebuilding cylinders on that dumb thing.....
