One of our favorite places to go. They've been saying they are closing in January for the last 4 years LOL! Probably one of these years?
My first time there, I have no idea lol
The marina looked like a mini LB shoreline village to me.

My parents used to weekend overnight their express cruiser in a slip there when I was a kid. Is the restaurant and little marina store still there?

Yep, still there. Restaurant is pretty good. Expect "Water Front" pricing tho!

Time to say goodbye to the Kirby I think. I think I kicked the bucket on the shampooing today. 20 years of reliable service and time to put it down. Lol

Kirby is definitely a reliable vacuum...honestly I got one of those shark/roomba deals, and besides 2 times of an occasional poop. I have that thing on schedule to vacuum the house twice a day. Legit keeps the floors really clean. I get the shampooing is different, but might save you some time.

She picked up a bissel shampoo machine. It’s cleaning awesome now. We will see on the longevity of it though.

When I shampoo I rent one of those Rug Doctor deals from the grocery store, I swear my carpet is like brand new after that.

She went looking for a belt for the Kirby.
Couldn’t find it. Is one of those people I want it and I want it done now. So well as you can see. We got a new cleaner.
I will say she is much nicer to look at then a cleaning agency person. Lol

Haha I get it, I would do the same thing with my wife. However when it comes to deep cleaning like that I usually handle it myself, because I'm peticular about how it's done.

I use Goodvac.com for Kirby parts. They basically sell every part. Bought a used G5 for $250 w/accessories at a Kirby store in 2006. I replaced the motor in 2010(?) for $150 and the Kirby still works perfect. We bought a Roomba for tile but kept the Kirby for carpet. Kirby’s literally can go forever with a few bucks in repairs here and there.

Yes always there. tongs.com ............. not to be confused with thongs.com :)

I've thought about getting those, not so much for any relocation intent, but often they're not in a place that makes dispatching them in place, challenging.
Historically I've used two methods when dealing with rattlers, shovel or my .22 with snake shot. Occasionally they end up where using either method is undesirable, until I coax them to a better location.
How long are yours ? Thanks for the site info !!
If it best to buy a large rubber snake to practice 😂 First time must be entertaining, at least for somebody watching. 😳 😁 Preferably I could start small and work up :eek:

Thanks. Will definitely look into some parts. It’s motor is still running fine. Needs a power cord and belt is all I think. Like I said she wanted something done and done now. Lol.

I live less than 15min from my yard so we decided to head to the lake when I got off yesterday. I got home and my wife had the boat hooked up and ready to go, all I had to do was change clothes and we were off. We were on the water by 3:45. Water was up 2 feet from last week.

This was about 10 minutes before the lake closed.

Yesterday these little guys ages probably 10 - 12 were learning to sail. We could see the instructor keeping a eye on them. This was is the main channel about 3 to 4 miles from the Port Of Stockton. Pretty cool to see.

Got a board for my youngest, 100 bucks. I fixed some dings yesterday, and he wanted to strip the old wax, wash it and put on some fresh wax. He likes the way it rides, going almost every evening! Winning!

That was my plan for Saturday also. But the daughter hit us up to dog sit and that dog is to big for my boat. Plan to get out there this Saturday.
It was a great day, we’re going out again Saturday also.

Yes
They are doing a big search warrant on the guy down below for raising fight roosters (LASD)
Saw that last night and was checking out the ranch on satellite images and noticed the LA 88 right up the road and recognized the building in your pic. LOL
