So, I've been in maintenance mode...

...all day long -- first, we had to play silly buggars (as in, retard the timing) with Mrs Neo's car to kludge it through Drive Clean... then it was off to the Doc to set up an appointment to surgically scope my failing left knee.

The backhoe is also getting some new hoses... and I'm contemplating the pros & cons of welding up the leaky loader arms (which also function as a reservoir for hydraulic fluid)... versus fabbing up an external tank, which could also double up as a step into the cab.

Decisions, decisions.

Sometimes it feels as though I'm simply running in place... it'd be nice to actually make a little forward progress.
