Good evening all,

Sorry I missed Saturday's posting.  Got home late Saturday, sat on the couch and fell asleep.  Reffed a wild 7-6 soccer match Saturday, then wife and I went to see Lucas, his wife, and Rosalie Rae (Choo Choo).  All are doing well, RR is tiny.  I forgot how small they are.  Went to Mass over there.  Stopped in Bloomington on way home to see younger daughter.  Watched some soccer today and then pruned some honeysuckle.  Nice weather both days.  Supposed to be really nice for Mini.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Mike C. from Indiana

Banks - I need to get a Shutterfly account, to be sure.  

It's a little more complicated than Photobucket but I figured it out.

Sayyyy...is that show in Cumberland next Saturday?  I might be able to squeeze it in before the dirt drags if it opens early enough.

Evening all!

83 today and a very nice breeze. Spring is here and the dandelion crop is doing great!

Fife - One of my best friends dad was into speeders. He had 7 or 8 in various stages of repair and/ or running. His wife gave them all away to their old club friends to get them out of the yard!

BBQ'd some chicken tonight and sat out on the porch with some adult beverages. Son joined us. we had a nice chat! Great evening for it.

MikeC - sounds like you had some nice visits with your kids/grandkids! 

Regards, Roy

Good morning,

Once it hits 82 I am about at my high temp limit.

 

60 now, Two days in the 80s and sun then rain will start for the end of the week. . Decided I am going to go get Grand-son Jordan this afternoon to do some motorcycle riding tomorrow before the rains come.

Shutterfly is easy to use. Just open it in Shutterfly, right click, copy anywhere on the picture and then paste the pictures to the forum. Wink

Last Day of April........

Banks - Good news on the Bull......

Thanks for the Happy Birthdays!!

Cloudy and in the 40s now.  70s and 80s later this week.

This guy wanted my old Acura 3.5RL SOOOO bad he needed to see it Friday night and, of course it would not start.
Saturday I spent the afternoon charging the battery and trying to find out why it has a dead miss in it.  I replaced all 6 spark plugs and it runs great, still needs an alternator.  So he was a no show on Saturday but he called.
He wanted to come Sunday and initially I wasn't going to be home, but plans changed and I called him and again no show.   
If by the end of the week I get nothing, I'll get an alternator from Rock Auto for $125 and get someone to install it.  Then it'll be a great car not just a nice car.  Hell, the timing belt and water pump was already done.

Sunday I stayed home and cleaned house with the Princess.  

Saturday we went to see the Avengers and the kids bought the goodies, movie was great!!! and afterwards we met my sister and the tavern down town.  My sister in law's Mom passed away and she lives in Columbia.  So my sister is planning to go there to support my SIL.  My brother's plans are up in the air, since he was supposed to go back to Kabul today.  My SIL's cousin is Sophia Vergara and her character in Modern Family is based off of my SIL's Mom.  Met my SIL's Mom twice, and she is a character for certain.  I wish I spoke Spanish, I liked her....

Bought a FEC Bay Window Caboose and a NY Electric Trains T-Shirt for my Birthday.  


Softball tonight, not sure of tomorrows plans, Wednesday night is County Fire Memorial Service an I'm in the Color Guard.

Unleash the fury, free the beast.  You must heed the story told by the priests.
