Status Update: Good Progress


I received another good report from the eye doc. Things are progressing as expected, plus in the last two days it appears the bubble is smaller.

A couple days ago I spent a little time in the garage and feel like I’ve found a solution to my clutch issue. Some adjustments plus a new spring bracket appear to have overcome the lack of clutch response.

I hope to resume some updates on Monday morning, as I can now see over the bubble in my eye while typing.

Eye Update


The good news is that the doc confirmed that my retina has fully reattached (yeah!). The bad news is that I still have some bubbles in my eyes, or more accurately, one bubble divided into several parts. It can make looking down very disorienting. I am still sleeping on the couch and can’t lay on my back. The bubbles are supposed to go away in the next couple of days ….

So, updates should return soon …

To Top



Post appt Update: Well, that was fun…. Doc informed me I had 2 tears and 2 pinholes in my left retina. It was good that I addressed it so quickly. Doc felt he could fix the issues with three outpatient procedures.

  1. Laser: he repaired the two tears with a laser and blocked off the fluid from spreading. more weird than painful.
  2. Freeze: to fix the pinholes he used a special freezing tool to adhere the retina to the back wall, which should solve that issue. A little more pain. I think he had to go behind the eye.
  3. Gas: lastly, he injected gas into my eye to pressurize the eye, which will help push the residue fluid out. Can’t recommend this procedure. Apart from the pain, the worst and most unexpected part is that I have to keep my head angled at about a 10:30 angled for the next SEVEN days. This will keep the gas bubble in the right location. Moreover, no 1000ft elevation gain, which means we will head home via the gorge (aka the long way home).

So, it will be a long week. Also, Probably no updates until after labor day weekend. Have a great week all!


Quick updates ….Good news: race Jeep is ready to test, but ….

Bad news: need to replace the NEW clutch master cylinder. Ugh.

More bad news: found out yesterday evening that I need to go to Tacoma for emergency work on my eye at 8 am Friday. I have fluid behind a small portion of the retina which is causing a shadow. So, no updates for a couple days at least.

Happy 11th Anniversary to us!


Friday was our 11th anniversary. We had planned to spend the morning at Art-in-the-Park, an annual event held in Richland, Washington, then, maybe, we’d take a drive over to Walla Walla to have lunch.

But no, instead we spent a romantic day setting up our portable corral panels and moving our squeeze (and fighting several wasp nests), so we could treat a calf that has pink eye. Naturally, it was a hot day, so we both got plenty of sun (and I sweated plenty). With the help of a neighbor, we got the calf into the chute and fixed her up as best as we could. We’ll see how it goes.

Readying the squeeze to be moved:


Our neighbor Rich helping us out:


Of course, we needed a few things, so we made a romantic trek to Tractor Supply (woo hoo!):


While in Sunnyside, we tried a hole-in-the-wall Mexican place (El Fogon); the yelpers were right. Food was great!


Thankfully, I have an awesome wife who appreciates an anniversary gone awry!

Next Updates Saturday


I’ve been busy this last week cleaning up, repairing wiring, and modest remodeling of our “lean-to” area (a series of lean-tos built off an old small one room building with a garage) to accommodate hay storage. With our current perfect weather (highs around 90) over the next two days, I want to get was much done as I can.

Our goal has been to have all the hay we need for the winter stored and ready for winter. Our next door neighbor grows enough hay for our winter needs (and gives us a great price, as we let him borrow our tractor), but last year we began buying it too late, so we found ourselves having to buy hay in the middle of winter from a half hour away. Moreover, we weren’t organized enough to store 400 plus bales. This year, we have the room to do that, but it has taken a couple dump runs and some reorganization to do it.

The next updates will be Saturday.

UPDATE: Anyone near Allentown


UPDATE: A big thanks to Bill who located Frank near the seller. Frank was happy to pick up the items for me and put them in the mail. So many great folks out there!

There is a seller who has a collection of Willys booklets (some manuals and a Willys Equipment binder) that he is willing to sell me for $125, but he’d prefer to have someone local pick them up.

So, is there anyone who could drop by his place in/near Topton, PA, pay him, pick them up, then mail them to me? I can PayPal or send you a check for the gas, time and postage.
