I had an Armada 7360DMT that I used for years, it only recently kicked the bucket. Refuses to power on.
I thought about fixing it, people who have parts think they're worth their weight in gold, so that isn't happening. Now the plan is to gut it, install a Raspberry Pi, and turn it into a homebrew Chromebook.

Had to work today, but at least the view was nice.

This is what the recalled shifter cable end bushing looks like on the 2013-ish Fusion when it fails/new.

Saw this nice 96 Aerostar in the foreman's bay.

I'm not sure what this is, but I made it.

"Whatcha doing, he asked?"

Where do I begin?

My Ranger needs a new set of rear brakes... I step on the brakes, and I feel a thump-thump-thump with a pulsating pedal as it stops... parking brake goes to the floor... and the rear shocks need replacing, as well. (The new shocks have been in the truck's bed for a couple of years now... :rolleyes:

My Mercury... see "What did you do to your Panther today."

The drain pipe for the kitchen sink has a clog and a couple of leaks in the basement; if the dishwasher is run (or the kitchen sink is used) the drain water shoots all over the basement floor. Thus far, it's wrecked the cedar closet and a number of cardboard boxed I use to store rarely used tools... and saturated the basement playroom carpeting.

Thursday afternoon, my wife has an appointment to have a root canal tooth capped. $$$

Friday afternoon, I have an appointment with my Cardiologist for the periodic re-check of my CABG; I have a hunch that she is going to schedule a stress test, as well as the usual EKG where they attach about a dozen electrodes to my chest (along with a complimentary chest shave), both legs, and my shoulders. I wish they'd simply attach about 480 volts of three-phase current and watch me spin in synchronous motion... and I'd be done. I'm just tired of living... :palm:

Dougie and I both bowled bad today. We were on lanes 7 and 8 - i. e. Splitsville, U.K. I've been watching these lanes all year and they're horrible, especially lane 8. If I'd been getting the splits I was leaving anywhere else I would have thrown the ball in the river.

We lost the first game by 2 pins, a game in which I threw four splits and couldn't pick up a single pin on any of them. We won the last game by 4 pins. Leo and Tony didn't bowl very well either.

More old stuff on display in boxes.

The fully assembled 470 on the right still works.

Moved some other stuff around, the $2 painting is now displayed in a proper way.
