MORNING SHEP, YEAH WE CERTAINLY WOULD NOT WANT TO WAKE
ROB UP SO EARLY IN THE MORNING, HEH HEH HEH, ^_^

Oh, sorry, caps lock again, should I spray that button
with WD-40 or Graphite? Maybe 3 in 1 oil would work.


I think the button is fine..bet there is a loose nut between the back of your chair and the keyboard..

Quoting theshepherd:
So, halfway up the giant hickory tree I notice some honey bees coming out of a hollow that was hidden by a thick growth of water shoots.

Not being able to speak "honey bee" and assure them I meant them no harm, I rappelled back down to "ponder" the situation.

Do I exterminate the bees?
No.

Do I leave the limb in the way of my satellite signal path?
No.

I decided to cut the whole tree down and let the bees move their nest. Which they are working on doing.

Yeah, I know. Sheph murdered a gorgeous tree.

But, the fact of the matter is if you cut one old hickory near the end of it's life, 10 will take it's place. Kinda like killing big spiders, eh?

My brother-in-law, who is an x-CB from the Nam days asked me what kind of knot was that around my climbing rope that I had tied from my Swiss Seat that I had thrown together from a piece of boat dock line. I told him it was a Prussic knot. "Ya should have learned that in Basic", I told him. He said "no, and he wasn't in Boy Scouts either". :)

I'm "sure" Ranger Rick remembers, eh?




Indeed, the triple sliding hitch, great rope climbing tool also. You make one for each foot and one for your waist. Great for lugging a heavy pack up a mountain also.

I am off to try to figure out how to build this curved wall into the existing ceiling line.
Same as the floor/wall profile, but upside down.



Draw it out on the floor and transfer to ceiling with a plumb-bob, amigo.

HEH !

You guys are depriving Capt. Hood of his beauty-sleep, you know.
And everyone knows he desperately needs it.

Anyway, it's Monday.
I am off to try to figure out how to build this curved wall into the existing ceiling line.

I am not good at looking up for long periods. I trust Ashley is good at neck-massage in the evenings.

Went to a Fantastic concert last night.
Paquito D'Rivera (clarinet) and Berta Rojas (guitar) playing the music of Augustin Barrios.
What a Treat. Brilliant.

Later, then>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

*******************************************

Must be some apple fritter droppings on your left ring finger getting down into the works.

That tells me you are right handed and hold your coffee cup in your right hand and your fritter in your left while plinking out your post with your left ring finger...I reckon :)

edit:
Never try that with a cheese burger and milk shake.

Wouldn't want TO WAKE ROB UP FROM HIS NAP OR ANYTHING LIKE SOMEBODY DID TO ME THIS AFTERNOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh snap.
The only thing worse than a malfunctioning caps lock is a malfunctioning BOLD lock.

I'm sure the perpetrator of such misfeasance begs forgiveness...or not.

Snake slithers in quietly, looks around, grabs a beer and slips back out trying to be as quiet as possible. Wouldn't want TO WAKE ROB UP FROM HIS NAP OR ANYTHING LIKE SOMEBODY DID TO ME THIS AFTERNOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seems that the last 2 weeks, I have been sleeping well every other night. If the pattern holds, tonight should be a good sleep night.

Listening to the rain drip on the metal roof over the deck this afternoon has put me in the mood for a nap.

With any luck, I won't wake for 12 hours.

Rest well folks.

C-ya Monday!

Vet, Ski, Oss, & Shep,
Thanks for the videos and your comments. Both are appreciated.
Auburn, Good to see you and that you got the new TV working. Enjoy.

Pottery,
Sounds like you have your hands full, once again.

Sorry to have missed hanging out with you all last night, but glad you stopped by and kept each other company.

Hope you all are enjoying Sunday!

Wow! (as they say)

Y'all had a Party here last night !

Going to take a while to check all the tunes around here, but I'll do my Utmost.

I'll have to turn the volume right up, because I am a little busy with Pyrate Alex and Princess Amy today.
Amy needs to paint something, and Alex needs to make a bow and arrow.
Calls for constant supervision in both cases, as you can well imagine.

Laters, then >>>>>>>>>>

Daylight's a'waistin.
Time to strap on the tree spurs and cut that cotten pickin limb that's blocking my sat signal.
It's only 30 feet up a giant Hickory.

Switching to outside speakers.

Enjoy
:)

Ya think?

The bugs of the future could be different.

As long as they don't mess with the NFL Sunday ticket, I don't really care :-)

Live and learn, just about every week, no?.......


I watch wat I want online now. Haven't had cable for years more than 15. We use Redbox but only about 4 to 5 times a month. When it comes to movie downloads I like to by the disc at a pawn shop just to have a hard copy on hand.

Go PATS
