    These two units were at the local dealer for tune up. And they have all the bells and well shade and a fan inside the shade. And mic so they can talk to dispatch. Wanta guess who has these decked out units?

    Yep city owned nothing but the best.

    They must be for the airport which is why they say aviation on the top. The guy who fixes my stuff is an AISD mechanic. I get same day service sometimes and nothing ever sits like at the dealerships.

    One day it got up to 90F and two days later the temp drops and instead of snow we got a big overnite hail storm. Pretty much done my roof in again for the 3rrd time in 10 years.


    Stuff is blooming away and temp keeps going up and down

    The last pictures was a 50 yd top soil job where the guy got it out
    onto a busy road. So we closed one lane for about an hour

    Do you have to notify police/fire/e911 when closing a road/lane in Texas? Out here you have to get approval.

    No they were nice about it since it was anticipated and the truck driver had
    already left. We had one guy up the street acting as flagger.

    We cut the undergrowth off this big area and now we are spreading top
    soil for hydro seeding the next week. the HOA wants to have water truck
    to keep it watered but we can't fine any available. We put bid for hose bib for hand watering with hoses:dizzy:

    Adding a helper wheel to our big gates into our shop area. Some day
    I will get a welder and fix this all up right Notice that thread stock I buy that in 6' pieces then cut it to size as needed. Took me a lot of years to figure out doing that instead of buying individual bolts. Got a dremel that cuts it off so the threads aren't damaged.


    Got our new stuff that we bought this year unpacked and tagged. And
    took all the little plugs out of the carb so I can adjust the. We didn't get
    much this year. opps some of that stuff to the right is our back up trimmers and a couple that I can't get going.

    shopmats work well in truck beds to eliminate tools from sliding around,
