Gerry was right about not healing as quickly once your hair turns grey, haha. Be careful about falling off of things too, I've noticed I don't bounce as well as I used to.

Used to be able to land on my ass after a 3 or 4 foot unexpected drop and hop right back up, now I just set there and moan a while first, lol.
when the money tree was blossoming real good I bought the mini Hoe and forklift. that made my life and back a lot easier.

I tired to re-purpose these green stairs but when they fell off the work table on to the ground they split. by the time I was done with the screw gun and more wood, the stairs will need a little paint splashed on them.

yes for safety and at my age plus the price beer at the end of the world I need the doors on the truck so I don't fall out.

plus I have all my vise grips being used as door handles and window cranks, lol

it was a relaxing day working on the Green Toy. I had to mount the air cleaner back on so I whipped a few quick mounts. it might be all summer before the work is completed for the fenders to go back on. oh well these projects take time. I also strapped the hood down in case I get the Green Toy in to 5th gear and fear and common sense is not holding me back in hitting top speed. since the park brake handle sticks up and as you try and slide off the seat it pokes you in the bum. I whipped up a granny step so the bum slide does not hurt when getting out of the seat.
