At 88° outside, I thought it would be a good time to fix the small "star" crack in The Beast's windshield today. A rock or something hit it back in February during a trip to Albuquerque.
While I was in Gallup yesterday, I picked up a windshield repair kit at O'Reilly Auto Parts while friend Larry Lucier was having his physical therapy.
The task wasn't difficult, just time-consuming to complete each step. But the finished result came out quite satisfactory (and so recorded).

While I had The Beast out of the GOCO Beast Barn, I took it down to the Flying J to get a few gallons of gasoline. I got just enough so that I could start up the generator for some exercise. The price for unleaded regular was $4.759/gallon. With my Good Sam discount, it was lowered to $4.709/gallon. When I got back home, the generator started right up.

Also, while I was in Gallup yesterday, I picked up my ticket for next week's Lions Club Rodeo at the Red Rock Park Rodeo Arena. Rodeo season in New Mexico, particularly in the Gallup area, is when it is great to be living here. A week after the Lions Club Rodeo, the Bloomer Trailers Best of the Best Rodeo will be held at the same venue.
As per our usual routine, we had dinner at the El Rancho Hotel.
