    The Bench Rest outside season starts 03/04. I'm ready for that. Have a lot of ammo thats shooting real good, upgraded my wind flags with 3 more wind meters.

    Doing cleanup around the place, have cut 3 trees that were dead and have most all split for camping season.

    Just got back a part for one of the chain saws from repair.

    Have the front end off and radiator out of my tractor. The radiator is totally shot. Only 56 years old and already have to have a new one .... :eek: things just dont last any more. I choked when I ordered it at the local store .... $250. Had to cut one of the bolts off as it had broke its weld and the nut wouldnt come off. Thats ok, and also had to cut the top hose to get it off. Dont think I needed the clamp as it wasnt comming lose.

    Oh and it got to 79 today ......... :D but i spent the biggest part cleaning out the barn end of a couple old riding mowers (going to the recycle place), cleaning out all the leaves that had blown in since fall. So far have 2 large contractor bags full of trash, ect. Probably at least one more to fill. And I havnt event moved into the shop and reloading room yet .. :p

    Back to seasonal temps tomorrow for a few days.

    Radiator for the tractor is in. Will pick it up this morning and put it back together. While the sheet metal is off will put on a new valve cover gasket, been leaking for a while.

    Have a little more wood chunked up and will finish splitting it. Have the trailer piled high but need the tractor to haul it to the wood pile.
