More hospital visits and another day gone. Did manage to place an order for 500 retaining wall blocks, part of keeping SWMBO happy. When I finally got home I thought I could at least get one car thing done: bending the steering arms… nope. The regulator on my acetylene tank appears to be dried up/stuck/not working right, allowing the pressure to drop to 2 psi, then, bang, back up to 15 psi, then back down to 2 psi, over and over… not safe. Tried disassembling the regulator and found nothing wrong… sigh.

It’s like a Greek tragedy, watching parents age – not easy looking into the crystal ball and learn I’m destined to slowly lose my mind. Balance that with the very selfish thought of, “It is so inconvenient that they have to get sick on my vacation.” Pretty pathetic son, huh… Maybe the second Jack and Coke was a bad idea…
