Great news Beakers!

Glen is on his way over with my generator fully operational!...For 130 bucks!...new spark plug, emptied gas tank but left a little fresh in he said, and something to do with the carburator.
He will show me how to operate it once he gets here and brings it downstairs...

Very cool!....hope I never have to use it but nice to know if I did, I have it for fridge, microwave and coffee maker!...maybe more, I shall know when he's here...

Later.

Will just modify/add....I know how to use it now, and it has 4 plug outlets to run inside the house!

BTW Glen said I am not the only one wanting a generator fixed....he suddenly got 4 other calls and wondered if many got the news that Minnesota is in a high potential area for not having power capacity?
I told him I thought he was now going to be in the generator business, not just mowers and other small engines....LOL

KB... Yay!  But... is it safe to run inside the house? I know nothing. Carbon monoxide????

Another load of mulch bags transferred to garden. Back inside and feet up. Too warm to work out there today. Will watch the Twins.
Pots placed for later planting (when it is cooler and Camper can help).

Absolutely NOT safe to run in the house. People have died running it inside their homes.

We parked it in Scott's shop downstairs....It has big wheels on it..so I can roll it out enough of the shop to reach the kitchen window and hook up 4 appliances. I do have at least 4 long extension cords.
It has circuit breakers on the generator too.

Glen did show me where the muffler is and push come to shove, I could aim the muffler in back of the generator outside the shop doors if I had too...and leave partially in the shop.
There is no entry to the house as the shop is behind the garage block and basement block and under the upstairs deck with two doors to exit the shop..

CLYNN    LOL  How techy kids eat lunch.  I used to read comic books or the back of the cereal box  LOL.  I was just glad I was not out on the hwy. somewhere and I was alone when that light went on.  What can't NR do???  those are so cute.    Cool names for the SF Bay osprey babies

PEEPS   The loons are bigger - when held - and you get better perspective on size.   Slow week - all averages out with the really busy ones.  ??? :-\

JASPURR   WOW  Some storm  :o :o            LOL  " Who's the guy on the left"  I'll stand in line for a selfie  ;D ;D

KB    Nothing gets past Ollie, that's for sure.  ;)   Great news on the generator.  If I didn't know better I'd say now that you have it the days will cool down significantly  LOL

TIG   So the Bearberry is going the area where the little white fence is?

TSK... yes, can you see the two black pots in the pic? Ready to plant later

KB... sweepers went thru in the Spring. Yes, you see junk along the curb. We get a lot of refuse from the trees west of us that blows across the street. I cleaned up along our driveway the other day, because it was dry. And I have done at least one full length clean in late Spring. The area you see tends to retain moisture. Sometimes we move it up onto the street to let it dry and then clean up later. Soon...  ;)
My Dad would never have left that go. He be out there with a toothbrush (almost). LOL.

Tig - oh that's funny about your Dad.....I am not pressing YOU to take care of it, I just wondered about your city.....when I walk Ollie I see inclines/low spots that also hold water against some properties....kind of too bad for them actually. I notice these things as I don't want Ollie walking in water or me in ice in the winter.

oldguy - yes I thought so too on the cost of repair...he's such a great guy and I use him for all of our small motor repairs/maintenance...We are lucky in this town to have him.....as am I.

Ugg...after NOT watering as rain was very much predicted, now down to only 2 percent chance...As Vi says, I'll believe it when I see it......

tig - adding our city is on a 4-5 times a year street sweep schedule. Usually by early June they have started their second run....but now I read they are late, but they are starting on the east side so will eventually get to my side probably by next week.....I know there are lots of tree seeds in the gutters right now......Maybe, just maybe your city is on a similar schedule and just delayed right now?....don't do it yourself until you know....we have a calendar up in our city gov't website...maybe you do too?

Pipeline, Haywire and Contreras fires in Arizona.  LANI I hope you get some rain soon.

Just watched the news about E1 eagle fledging KB.  Looked big and strong.
