The Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico 28 degrees and mostly cloudy, foggy to 54 degrees and partly sunny.
Bonnie went to church and after she had a low battery and Silver Sally would not operate the engine starter. There was someone there and jumped the battery and got her started but, there is now a problem with the power steering. This car has electric power steering, and is not working now. I checked the fuse and that is ok. It is now a work in progress as the car is drive able, just more effort for the operator.
We went to happy hour and latter played Mexican train.

Art helped me check the battery and electric and we decided as the battery is over six years old best thing is to replace it. We took the battery to Auto Zone they tested it and pronounced it bad and I purchased a new battery. Everything is working except the power steering. We got that done a quick lunch and then a two and a half hour BoD meeting. Then it is time for happy hour and after dinner we played Mexican train.

We are (The Ranch) is replacing the water hydrant on each lot for the rig (motorhome or fifth wheel) including the under ground shutoff valve. The hydrant to where we connect our rig hose also has another faucet for an additional house we use for a fire hose. While digging on our lot the fitting connecting the valve to the under ground plastic pipe broke and filled the hole with water the started flooding the lot before we could get down the street and close the water main valves. The new pipe and valves were installed and the hole was left open overnight to check for leaks at the connection in the morning. The new pipe above ground pipe also has electric heat tape, foam insulation and a four inch outer plastic pipe case and cap. These are being setup in the shop and pressure tested before being taken to each lot. The connection to the water main is the leak test being done.
Then it is time for happy hour and after dinner we played Mexican train.
