A couple weeks ago, Wayne cut the field, then the weather messed us up.

I tried to do a maintenance cut this weekend but the grass was as thick as I have seen it due to this spring's growing conditions, and I could not get it completed, due to problem I am having.

Stinger stepped up and cut the grass yesterday with his new lawn mower with a bagging attachment.  This took 3 hours due to the conditions, which is a long time for an area of that size.  This indicates the effort required due to the thick, long grass.

He said he will cut it one more time, likely Friday, this will leave the field in excellent shape.  Without this kind of effort, we could not hold a meet.


I have had to take a temporary break from cutting, I have a knee problem and the doc. has ordered up an X-ray and MRI.  I have had this before but it is not going away quickly.  He said it could be anything between a need for surgery to "just welcome to being 60+"  Shocked . I will be out to the meet for the day, for sure; though I might not be able to bend or kneel which will cut some of my participation short, but I am still looking forward to the day.

Thanks for all your hard work guys. Stinger if Friday becomes an issue I can come down a couple of hours early and bring my mower too and do it quick Saturday morning. I was planning to come down well before 9 anyway to set up the field.
Glen, don't worry about bending or kneeling I am more than willing to help you pick up your smoking wrecks off the field.  russian 

You just come there sit and relax and battle. I'm sure all of us will chip in to help you. Very Happy

Do we need any digging, shoveling or other hauling of dirt / material before Saturday? I can come early on as required and muscle stuff around Razz

As always looking forward to an excellent Saturday!

I'd settle for getting the issues with the Clark in the latest Panther sorted out. Sad

Do you need it programed?

I don't know enough about them to know if it is a programming thing.

Everything works fine except it will not reverse in a straight line.

I have switched motor leads and the opposite side is the problem, so it is not mechanical.  

Trim adjustments don't fix it and my other tanks work 100% off the same radio, so it isn't the radio.

An update;

They called me today from the doctor's office about the MRI on my right knee; they say I have a compound tear of the lateral meniscus and osteoarthritis.

I am not sure how it happened, I am pretty careful with home projects and leisure time activities.

I don't know what the treatment will be until I get my appointment with the specialist.

Just be glad you aren't a horse Glen or you would have been taken behind the barn and shot by now... Laughing 

Not much can be done with the osteoarthritis but the compound tear usually means under the knife buddy. But on the bright side the fix is usually very successful. Best of luck sir!
