I have zero motivation today but I should be trying to accomplish my list of things to do - my day tomorrow is spoken for with practice for a televised community event I'm going to be doing live music for, among other things.

I was up and doing early. Laundry, finished spading the garden, cut the grass, went to the post office, replaced a rear axle bearing in my 96 F150, a quick trip to a tire shop to get one broken down, cut up 4 scrap bias tires so they'll fit in the trash and answered a few e-mails. My daughter is here and want's to go to Mickey D's so we're off and running.

I finally got some motivation rolling and got the laundry going and cut the grass. I will say I was out and about to the local junkyard early this AM looking for a couple things for the Explorer - ended up going with a buddy of mine who was trying to get a rear for his chebby, so I figured I'd ask about a couple things.

Clay - what's your secret for cutting down tires...my neighbor's got about 8 scrap tires sitting in my back yard (the houses are close here) and I'm sure he could use your advice...lol.

It's all good, Chris...I should loan him mine. I think these tires are about 25 years old and must have been laying there all winter...the smell from the water was just bad.

Bill, if they're steel belted radials I loose them 1 or 2 at a time in various dumpsters. I keep a mental list of dumpsters that meet 2 criteria. They are located in area without security cameras and they lifted by a front loading trash truck. I don't throw them in rolloff boxes because most drivers are taught to throw out any tires they find. Front loader drivers don't bother to look. For bias ply tires I cut the beads in a couple of places with a slicer blade on a grinder then I cut the rest up with a utility knife.

I learned how to cut them up when I was a kid. My dad had a coal furnace in the garage. He would burn just about anything that would fit thru the door and ignite. Chunks of tire, hoses, upholstery, oil cans, floor mats, rugs, just about anything. To dispose of leftover paint we would wait until the furnace was cold for a day or two. We would set open cans inside then build a fire on top.

Well today is not looking as nice as yesterday so I guess I'll have to find some inside work to do around the house and trust me the wife as a nice long list. So off to LOWE'S I go.

Today is indeed a good day to be indoors. Just got home from a practice for a locally televised community event on Thursday - I'll be playing trumpet with 1 other trumpet player, 2 trombones, and a tuba for this. The tuba player was out of town for work, so we have to reconvene on Wednesday evening for a final run-thru. I'm torn between taking a nap and finishing the house cleaning now...we'll see what wins.

The nap only sort of won - I ended up doing a little more housework first, but that nap hit the spot. Hopefully won't be up all night now though, lol.
