|Having a good time at Rabbit Run|
Sometime today, Dave will be over and we will work on the brakes of his car. It seems that either Dave uses his brakes a lot and hard, or the General Motors brakes haven't gotten any better than they were on the Vega. Seems like I redid them on the Vega about every 20,000 miles. Much the same on Dave's cars. The good news is that the parts are cheap (relatively) and I do know how to do it. I have found that if the brakes are worn on just one side, it is probably a stuck caliper and we are just as well off changing it from the first. I changed the pads and rotor one time and a very short time later I had to redo it and change the caliper. Oh well, won't be the first time or the last.
Dave is getting well fairly fast and his blood tests are showing an improvement. Slow but steady. He had a hiatal hernia and it caused a bleed. When he started to feel bad he took a lot of aspirin and things progressed steadily until it took a trip to the hospital. He right now is on a lifting restriction of 25 lbs. and will be good company but not much help with the brake job. I know he knows how to do it as he has been there and done it with me several times. I like t get in there and turn wrenches from time to time. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want a full time job doing it. At this stage of my life, I don't want a full time job of doing anything. With about 21 acres of mowing, I can always fire up the tractor and find something to do.
Better get back to sharing the Rikku duties. You know how much I hate spending time with little children.
