after a long absence, I am here. Not sure where I left off so, Banker is no longer with me. He was almost blind, losing weight, and Jade was threatening to push him over the cliff. I made the hard choice and had him put to sleep.

Well, tearing down the Blazer for its S10 chassis. Found out the left-side draglink is bad. Will have to replace that. Keep finding things wrong. Oh, like the free vice-grips sealing off the front right-side brake line. Yeah... there really was a reason ...

Only a quarter inch but it is a start!

Yesterday was the last day of heat also.

need rain.
It is so dry.
I can't keep all the shrubs watered.
We will lose some rosemary and salvias.
Salvias can be easily replaced and I am not a fan of rosemary.
The large shrubs, figs and trees are the priority.
