  • Life Observations

    Now that I'm older, here's what I've discovered:

    * I started out with nothing, I still have most of it

    * My wild oats have turned to prunes and All Bran.

    * I finally got my head together, now my body is falling apart.

    * Funny, I don't remember being absent minded

    * All reports are in: Life is now officially unfair.

    * If all is not lost, where is it?

    * I wish the buck stopped here. I sure could use a few ...

    * Kids in the back seat cause accidents; accidents in the back seat cause kids.

    * It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere.

    * Only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.

    * If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    * When I'm finally holding all the cards, why does everyone decide to play chess?

    * It's not hard to meet expenses ... they're everywhere.

    * The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

    And two of my favorites:

    * It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.

    * Some days you're the dog, some days you're the hydrant.

    Have a nice day (you too are a day older today),

    I heard a bit of a twist to the one above.... A rut is a grave with the ends kicked out, pull yourself out.

      I disagree with the "rut" and "grave" analogy. I kinda like ruts. As Marcel says, "now that I am older" there are things that one is allowed to enjoy that only come with age. As Popeye was fond of saying, "I yam what I yam" and am no longer "looking for myself." I know who I am warts and all.
      If middle age is "when your dreams and memories are equal," then I must be "elderly," "senior," "aged," etc because I find I have fewer dreams (except for nightmares) than memories. It is nice to be able to look back and say "been there, done that." My son says I'm stubborn and I say as opposed to what-wishy washy? Being "older" has its benefits, but I agree with Marcel that I too have a 30 year old mind trapped in a 66 year old body. Methinks life is a cosmic joke. By the time you have enough experience and brains to do things right, you can't.
      By the way Bill, you aren't old enough to have too many "life observations." I have tools in my shop older than you.

          Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
          That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

          If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

          The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

          You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...

          Testing this blower motor
          by bradleyheathhays
          I have this blower motor that's out of a used pellet stove the previous owner says was going bad. I suspect it's because it was almost completely clogged at the intake, but I wanted to test it out electrically to make sure. The motor housing says 120v, so not know hardly anything about electricity...
