LnrB:


I hope the scuttle drop goes well. It is that upside down and backwards
working position that gets one. OHH, I am sure you are far more supple than I!!!


I ran my car up on ramps to do some of it. One turned out not so well. Others, on the big trolley and jack stands.


The two skinny "top" screws are those durn slotted things. Now, Allen heads in my car. Alignment with the captive nut? Stab and hope, over and over!!!

Thank you, Carl,
I got the underskuttle down yesterday but that isn't going to be enough. I need to remove the crash roll and maybe the speedo for light and access. Bummer!!

I got to drive the jag to work yesterday!!! i passed it off as wanting to be part of the drive british car week, but in reality it was old age and failing memory!! and i ain't that old!!!!
spent 45 minutes looking for my van keys never found them!!! Last night they were in an envelope taped to my back door! Yard guy found them in back yard while mowing!!! I had left them sitting out in the grass by the pool equipment when i replaced the pump on Saturday!!! i had been in and out of van getting tools, etc, must have set the keys down and not payed attention to them when i picked up all the tools!!
Dont get old!!! first my eyesight starts to go, now my memory...... wait, what was i saying?? lol

Shoot, I've seen four score and six. But, I do various things to compensate:


1. Eye glasses. Mostly to read.


2. Hearing aids. Only worn when I want to hear clearly.


3. Behaviour patterns. Set places for keys, as an example. Left pants pocket, only... all of them. But, a spare set of all in a specified place...


Fun, huh....


Carl.

LOL! Carl, you're Such a hoot!
Glasses, but only if you want to see,
Hearing aid, but only if you want to hear!

No Kiddin'!

Elinor:


Yup, rather basic, huh?


1. I've no hearing at all in my right ear. About 50% in the left. OK, sans help at times, like now and when weed whacking!!!


I've some neat aids. One goes in my right ear and sends sounds to the right device and onto my brain. Almost natural stereo, but not
quite. Good for out and about and for TV.


Need to quite down folks and stuff, just take 'em out!!


2. I navigate most of the time, sans glasses. Not using them now.
Read, oh yes. Even if they are bifocal.


Drive in bright sunshine, wear prescription shades. Definite help.


Eye doc says cataract repair in future!!! Not now, I see what I need to see...


Never did get along with eye charts and the lens machines. Still am a durned good shot!!

DON'T FEEL TOO BAD: 66 and counting.
I normally put my car keys in my right rear pocket and my wallet in my front left pocket. One day, I inadvertently put my car keys in the wrong pocket and spent hours looking for them.
Placed my reading glasses on the top of my head and went looking for them.
While working on my cars, sometimes the tools disappear, only to appear where I did not put them, or did I?
Cleaned my pool and forgot to add Chlorine
Funny thing though; I never forget where the beer is.
What was this post about?
