Taylor’s slow move, galls autumn oak leaves and pool pump

Posted By on September 20, 2022


TaylorCondominium220918After helping Taylor move a few larger things over to his new condominium last weekend, he sent a photo of his still bare living room, but it is coming together. The TV is working so he could watch the 2022 losing Cincinnati Bengals (now 0-2) on Sunday afternoon. He has been slowing moving boxes of things from his 2015 move back to Cincinnati apartment a few minutes away, but is waiting on a couple of moving guys to haul his sectional couch, buffet, dressers and bed. It is a good call considering the two stories down from his apartment and 3 stories up a VERY narrow staircase into his condo. It was even a challenge getting a couple of items like the TV and headboard I made for him up to his new place. All in all though, I LadyBug220918think he will be pretty happy with his new place since it currently fits his urban lifestyle (we are definitely different people).


It also feels as if autumn is here. No more swimming, the grass is greening back up and the squirrels are working overtime gathering mouthfuls of acorns. The oak leaves have ladybugs which I hope are eating the wasp larva (?) that show up as orange galls on the oak leaves (read this).

As for chores around the house last weekend, I was irritated to have received the wrong gasket kit to rebuild our older Sta-Rite swimming pool pump (hopefully this will be the correct one?)


There are too many models and they are not well listed when trying to shop for them … but the good news is that the new bearing are into my rebuilt electric motor and it purrs smoothly … I now have a spare 1-1/2 HP pool pump motor when the new one starts chattering (and from experience, it will in about 5 years).
