Newell life.....

7:40 am - Saturday - March 30th - Fontana, CA - 53° F, 54% humidity, wind 11 mph out of the north.....clear blue skies with a forecast high of 81° F.

After many successive days of long work days I decided to take it easy Friday.  I was awaiting the arrival of several packages containing the necessary ingredients for various projects still on my list.  TLE had a hair appointment in Claremont, so she volunteered to drop by my son's office on the way home to pick up the three packages which were scheduled to arrive Friday.

I stayed home to rest, and to watch the latest PGA event starring Tiger Woods.....a match play event held in Austin, TX called the World Championship of Golf - Dell Technologies match play tournament.  Tiger entered Friday having won one match play event, and lost one.  He needed to win his match on Friday to advance to the round of 16 on Saturday, and he did so handily winning 4 & 2......up four with 2 holes to play.

I received a message from the eBay seller from whom I purchased the non-functioning Seaflo water pump advising me to ship it back to them, and they would in turn send me a new one under warranty, so I boxed it up in preparation for delivery to the USPS.  Additionally, I boxed up the worn out TRICO pneumatic wiper motor for shipment back to Rome Truck Parts in Rome, Georgia in order to have my $75 core charge refunded to my credit card upon receipt by them.

TLE returned from her hair appointment bearing gifts.....well, really just the three packages I was expecting.  One of the packages contained the much anticipated new Drive Tips for my speedometer signal generator, so you already know one of the projects I'll be working on Saturday.  I bought some extras this time in case it breaks again.


We finished the day watching the NCAA March Madness Sweet Sixteen games, and saw some pretty good college basketball.  The final two games of the night featuring Duke v. Virginia Tech and then Kentucky v. Houston were both decided by 2 points with the losing team in both cases having a chance to win at the buzzer.  Duke and Kentucky did prevail, however, and advanced to the 'Elite Eight' round.

So, that was how the 29th day of March went for us.....nothing dramatic, just life in a Newell....thanks for stopping by!
