7:39 am - Tuesday - November 3rd - Seal Rock, OR - 45° F, 100% humidity, wind - CALM.....it began raining at 7 am, and is forecast to rain the rest of the day with a forecast high of 56° F....just got a text from Terry advising I will not be toiling in the fields of SRRVC today. On this date in 2011 TLE and I were sitting in our anti gravity chairs next to the Pacific Ocean at Rincon Parkway (just north of Ventura, CA) enjoying the wonderful Fall weather of the SoCal Coast, whilst sipping some vino.......↴
We awoke to fog Monday morning, and it remained foggy all the day long. I worked with Terry for just shy of two hours before retiring to the confines of site A-3 to watch the fog roll in and out for the balance of the day. We did receive somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 minutes of direct sunlight between 12 pm and 1 pm, during which time I dumped a week's worth of effluent from our black tank.
Some of you may recall that I carry a bench grinder with us as we traverse to and fro across our great country. I only set it up when we are going to be somewhere for more than a month. I haven't had it out since our days at RORVR. I bought this bench grinder in USED condition at the South Lake Tahoe Flea Market for $20 back in 2015, or 16, and it has worked well for those intervening years. For some reason it would not turn on when I flipped the switch this time. I opened up the switch, wiggled some wires, put it back together and it began working again. Okay, fine.....well, the next day I flipped the switch to the 'ON' position again, and nothing happened. This time wiggling wires around did not solve the problem. At any rate, I decided to buy a brand new one off Amazon, and it arrived Monday afternoon......
......it is certainly not commercial grade, but for my needs and purposes it will last me years. As you can see I mounted it on the Black and Decker Workmate bench just as I did with the old one. I spent some time out in the 'garage' setting it up, and installing all of the accessories. Receiving and installing the new bench grinder was the highlight of my Monday. I spent the balance of the afternoon doing a little exercise, and then reading.Thanks for stopping by!
