Actually, I was talking about precipitation.
Will listen carefully later. M'lady is watching TV 10 feet away and doesn't appreciate me cranking the volume.

LOL

Been a long day so not sure how long I'll last tonight.

Wanted to drop by and let you all know, before I forget.
Some re-cabling scheduled here in the AM. Not sure how long it's gonna take, but will be off-line for a while!

Shep, have you dried out up there yet?
Lake still splashing into the yard here.

Pottery, Had enough yet?</em>

Can NEVER get enough.
We ARE talking food, right ?

Dinner was very good.
Take the lamb chops, smother in Mint Sauce (not the jelly).
Wrap tight in foil.
Stick in oven for 1 hour.
Simple, but good.

Burp !

Oh darn. The early bird got the worm with that one.

:)))

Yep!
Early birds get worms.
Every time.
There's Meds for that too.
Apparently.
So I'm told, anyway.
I prefer Rum.

Cheers !

I don't have that sort of condition, that's why I had to look it up!

All my tie rods, balljoints, and whatnots are operating optimally, TYVM! :))


Oh !
I was under an erroneous assumption.
Sorry!
One never knows, does one?
I suppose that it all Depends.
On whatnot and stuff.
Naturally.

Shep, you're gonna need a bigger house!


I'll just put "his" TV out by the cattle gap.

He's a pretty agreeable young man.

Morning guys, 49.6*F in Macon this morning!

My usual routine is to start the coffee and then go
out in the garage and open all three doors and have
a smoke or two while the coffee is getting ready.
Don't usually turn on the laptop and check the weather
until I have my coffee. So, there I am, short sleeve
work shirt, swimming trunks, and flip flops.
Hit the
door opening buttons and step out into WINTER. :)

Loved it, wasn't out there long, but loved it.


Ya just can't take the Florida outta that boy.

Tell the country boys up there you are a retired General....you probably looked the part. Get a cigar and Ray Bans and that completes it.

I had to go look glucosamine up; I thought it may be for MED! :))


Yeah.
It's a MEDicine. For ball joints and stuff.
Have you tried Oysters for your condition ?
Very good. And tasty too.

37 this morning and a nice frost; had to break out the window scraper! A bit early for this stuff, usually get it 3-4 weeks later.

So I'm thinking about sleep last night when an arachnid the size of a half dollar trots across the wood floor and heads beneath the upright. Don't ever recall one that big, at least in these parts. Black figure eight body suspended off the floor <1/4 inch. Well do you ignore this and warm up the bunk or watch and wait. Some time l8r, a critter like the first emerges from the piano making tracks to the north. High altitude bomb drop interrupts the track and a low alt. run stops it. If the SW decides that these critters are the cause of the ankle bites, it might get ugly around here. Where there is one ...?

Thanks Goofy!

RTL, Pleasantly cool here this morning. I'll take what I've got. Way too early for 40s.

Okay...Gotta get some work done. Back later.

55F in the swamp this morning.
Sunny day ahead.

One of the ranch calves thinks he's a puppy.
He would come in the house and watch TV if I'd let him.

He's a handsome buckskin color.

Sister named him Cowboy.
Thinking about making him a steer and keeping him around.

Every once and a while a keeper hits the ground.

After midnight


Member Since: February 27, 2009 Posts: 0 Comments: 2940
Funny SG who played w/ the hot club in paris in the 30s w/ another great player DR is in a session and contributes to a nice cut with the band and it is great that this is around. Think this a great cut.

These tunes were inspired today by a Swede missing the love of his life. The EU has a requirement that the parties to a union where one is of foreign birth must return to the homeland some period before the (k)not is tied. Wonder how many marriages here would occur if that were enforced. Say Lily pad is told to return to the Catskills for the winter (well in this example he is on passport) while the bride-to-be is confined to the Everglades. Makes one wonder if you would buy a house for a lady you dislike.

but in the words of the Bishop ... " Wove tru Wove "

Looks like we might get through a whole day with no rain.
Good! Might actually be able to mow the lake front tomorrow.

Gonna sign off for a while and spend a little time w/M'lady.

Take good care!

Do do do do, da da da da...


Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33557
Oh...and thanks for the great tunes Goofy!
(what happens at midnight...was that a hint?)

Glad to be of help Pottery.

Speaking of $$$, do you have any idea what the surcharge is for Sunday delivery? Well I didn't. Then one of the pilots tried to cut corners by refilling in a local lake.

Huge drama trying to get a water bomber extracted from the tar.

As for me, it's been really pleasant weather so I've spent some time battling air potato plants that threaten to smother my hedge line.

Quoting RobDaHood:
Didn't even look at the temp this am, but was content that the sun was shining through the window. Mix of blue sky and white fluffy clouds and the air felt cool. Of course that will change as all the rain that fell yesterday turns to steam, but for now pleasant enough.

Too much gray makes me blue!

No big plan for the day.
I kind of like it that way.

Pottery, you may receive another shipment today.

Fabulous !!
Came down in truck-loads, with lightening and loud noises.
Looks to be another hour or so.

Thanks, Capt.
We the Crew have always depended on you for Whatnot and Stuff.
Now, about that million $$$ we spoke about......

Forecast of 59 tomorrow night.

Good evening folks!

Just checking in real quick.
Stomach has been kinda yucky tonight. Not sick...just yucky.

Will probably go to bed early.

Still drippy outside. Of course, the one good thing about such a cloudy, gray, rainy day is that I can keep the whole house fairly cool with just the window unit in the office and a fan or two running. Nice to hear it cycling off for a change.

Have a great evening!

Yep, it's raining.
Someone who resides here just went into town for her grocery shopping, post office, etc. I recall saying around 1000 that it would be a good idea to do all that stuff early because it's gonna rain.

Of course, I am smart enough never to say "I told you so"!

Someone is gonna get soaked!



Vindication is sweet enough all by itself.

YCD,
Yes, it is indeed a sad state of affairs!
You just wake up one morning and realize, you aren't in charge anymore. Seen it happen to many a good man!

:o)

Pottery,
Be careful practicing those poses. Sometimes you get into one and can't get back up!
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33557
Thanks for the tune Goofy!

Cloudy again here today w/70% chance of boomers.
Rain already firing up to the south and spreading this way.

But, at least it's autumn, so looking forward to cooler, sunny days to come.
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33557
I agree Shep!
If I ate a breakfast like that I wouldn't be able to move for 4 hours!
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33557
Eggs, bacon, sausage, cheese grits, homemade bisquits
with real butter and honey, sausage gravy over home
fries, strawberry preserves, sliced bananas in cherry sauce, OK, thats it, I'm out of here!


Oh good.
You're skipping the 20 oz soda.

:)))

If I ate like that I'd need a bigger boat and it would take 20 lbs of lead to sink me down to the reef.

Note that I posted that as I sipped on my second cup of coffee while sucking on a Marlboro.

Morning Arkers!

Wow, 63.5*F in Macon this morning.

SugarBear and I are taking off on the Harley this morning.

Headed north for a little bit to a nice country breakfast place.

Wow public service announcements on plumbing and other stuff. What a great resource. Skies were clear a few minutes ago and now about 40-60 % clouds. Now is it too late to warm up the bunk or time to start up the coffee maker. What would lily pad do? Right he would check out the instructional vid again. As the keeper of the sheep says l8r.


PS: Any one notice that KOG was turning on the fans this morning. This without a reminder from Halo.

Here is one you don't hear often:

And a Pleasant Good Evening, to you all.
Did any of you realise that it's Friday night? Well, yes it is !
And that, my dear friends is pertinent because it means that the work-week is over.

Yes indeed. Done. Kaput. Fini.
Unless of course, you have not completed the list of stuff that you should have completed. Like items 637, 951 and 987 through 1064.

It's going to be another busy w/e, I fear....

I think I'll go and watch a Plumbing Movie. I am sure it was posted here because there are poses that one needs to adopt due to cramped places where pipes are put (WHY are pipes put in these places anyway ??) and we need to know the best pose for each and every one of those places.

Or something like that, anyhow.

Wow, I took the day off from the blog and I get here and find out that I can take lessons on plumbing. Thats really cool. I may have to watch the lesson a few times to make sure I have all the right tools. :)

heh heh heh

I've watched the video on how to field strip a Glock a few times just to make sure if I ever buy a Glock that I will know how to do it. :)
