      Had only 1 cup this morning to get going then started some projects, oil changes for both of my boy's, my youngest rotated his brothers tires while I did his rear brakes. Patched in some missing shingles from the wind storm a couple weeks ago on the in-laws shed. Pulled the side cover off the youngest boy's dirt bike, finally grilled some burgers for dinner. Hope you guy's enjoy your long weekend.

          Still trying to train my boy to leave the pot full or ready to start, he complains that I do it to him, but that is just payback for doing it to me.

              Just thought of it now, start hiding his tools, parts, whatever, until he gets conditioned to keeping the pot full. I hope you don't have to resort to this, now that he seems to have learned.

                    No coffee before work tonight! Got in the Polara, click. FueF pump work? Check. Electric fan work? Check. Click. (Sigh) Good thing I have multiple vehicles! But it set me back enough to not have time to get some high amp fufu to help me through the day. Then I get to work and the change machine is out of order.

                      Had some coffee yesterday, dollar fufu, and some swill from a gas station, nah, it was okay. I got to test drive a 2018 GMC pickup and car trailer. Not bad, only used 22 gallons to go 354 miles, trailer in tow. Used another 36 gallons to drag a project home. Used the tow/haul mode on the way back, and the truck sounded mean when accelerating! Never sounded that mean when empty without the towing mode engaged. Didn't have the biggest balls, but I wasn't trying to go fast. It's a wierd pedal feel, but it only bothered me a few times. Short car trailers suck handling wise, I had to slow down a lot around heavy traffic and Semis, that wind didn't help out! Once I got the death sway under control it was fine. 80 was had a time or two, but 70-75 was my normal return speed. A little over $500 with equipment rental and fuel, twelve hours of driving with a quick inspection/loading and a quick unloading, and the day was over.

                      One feature I liked was a little light in the overhead console, it was just a little light that illuminated the front of the console on the seat. It lit up the cup holders on the front of the console. At first I was trying to figure out where it was coming from. After a couple hundred miles, I definitely appreciated it. Just enough light to see what you need, and not enough light to be a bother. I think it helped me stay awake even.

                      That's my mini review for the week, now it's time for beer!
