It seems to me that the oak trees are showing a lot more color this fall than I have remembered them doing. Do you suppose it has something to do with the drought and the rains we had in the last half of November? In years past, it seemed to me that each oak tree changed color on their own schedule and not all at the same time. Not that way this year. Although they don’t get brightly colored, there is color tones to the brown they are turning; mostly a red tone to the brown. Let’s see, that would be a rust color, right? Here are a few pictures I took around the house:
Got to go get the newest addition motor-home ready to take down and get the oil and filters changed in the engine and the generator. Since I don’t know how many miles have been on the engine or hours on the generator since the last oil change, want its life with me to start off with fresh oil and filters. I know nothing at all about diesels, and I thought the gal told me on the phone when I made the appointment that it would take 12 gallons of oil. Wow, now that is a lot unless she meant to say quarts. I guess with that big of an oil reservoir, you could go quite a few miles before changing it. I didn’t get any information on the engine, but I did get info on the generator. Going to use Rotella oil. Everyone says that is one of the best. Anyone out there now what is recommended for a Cat engine? Too late to change oil types now, appointment is in two hours. That reminds me, I got to get going and get things ready.
BTW, I had to go to Houston yesterday to meet with my customer and agree on what was needed to finish up this job. We both seem to be satisfied with the answer. Have a great Friday, you hear?
