Morning folks!

Cloudy and a light breeze from north. A weak cool front is approaching. Rain to the west but not expected to make it here.

SJ - the Clown will be out!

Prep in process here for a wedding shower hosted by my daughters friends, but at our house. Pool party. Expecting 40+. We have been scouting/borrowing chairs, pop-ups, etc., from friends. Wife said they said my wife and I will not have to do anything. Everything will be just as it was prior. My comment is my wife missed an opportunity - I think it should be better/cleaner, and maybe paint the living room before they check out!

Regards, Roy

Mornin' boys.  Rain and 68 along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  The bear visited again last night; trail cam snapped some good pics of "George."  Now wifey wants to get a nice frame and put it with the children's senior portraits...

The youngest princess's bf visited her yesterday, at her dorm.  On the way home, a bambi reconfigured the front end of his Jeep.  He's fine.  Jeep, not so much.

Making homemade trees, out of dried sedum and foam.  Look good from above.  Also trying to rough in a river, using gloss medium over latex paint.  Needs work.

And to our triscadecaphobians on the Coffee Pot, hang in there.  Only 13 hours left.  Oooo, sorry.

Mornin' Shake-and-Baker!  So glad you made it home safe.  What a trip.  I envy what you just did.

We brought youngest princess home for the weekend.  I wanted to see her before my schedule gets to hectic.  She likes IHOP, so that's where we dined.

Morning.  Been working outside. Very humid.

Must be running billing or accounting.  This forum is slow as snail ---- this AM [compared to the other forums I have visited].

More spraying and etc to do.  Cleaned Wifey's pond filter [that is always a mess].

Later.

Good evening from beautiful clear 62°F Southern Ohio.

I’ve not read or posted for a week or so.  Work has been crazy busy and I’ve spent my days off cleaning the cedar siding on our house in preparation for staining it.  It is looking really nice. I am pleased and surprised at how much lighter in color the house is. All I have left to clean is the porch railing and porch eaves.  One of the parishes I serve held its 150th annaversary today. Both priests all thee deacons and the Bishop was at the Mass. There was an antique tractor show a car show games lots of food fun and of course beer.

Restored the headlights on the Red Ranger.  The ranger is doing good. I’m going to replace some of the instrument cluster lights tomorow before going into work.  It will make for an easy morning because I’m picking up a week of nights to cover another supervisor who needs to be off next week.  

Don - I’m glad you made it home safe.  Sounds like you had a great time. How many miles was the trip?

Roy - You could suggest you daughter to elope

Buckey - Glad you took care of Don

Good night and may God bless you and your families

Good evening all,

Washed the Escape today.  The aluminum wheels are nice but if you miss a spot cleaning them, it shows up like a sore thumb.  I hope everyone has a good day.

 Could not log on all day?????

Our neighbor Brain came over and helped me take the grill off the new deck. So I scrubbed then pressured washed it and now it is ready for stain. Got to get it done before any more leaves start to fall! Hope it will be dry enough tomorrow to get it done. Poor Brain and his mom had their well pump burn up yesterday so they are out of water. He is getting water from us for the toilets and other stuff but he has to have a new deep well drilled to replace the shallow shared well he had that is now considered illegal because you can't use a single well to feed two different peoples houses or have the old pit well. So there goes 13K.

Well I am done till next year with the new replacement deck. Happy with the way it turned out. Not happy with the help I was promised from the kids,,,,,,,,,GO FIGURE!!!! At least it is in stain and will be good this winter.

Best get!

Seems like you're out in the country. Why not replace the pump and tell no one? ?

Hello there,      
Glad to see Don made it home safely. Looking forward to a full report.  

  Roy glad the shower was a success.


Lot's going on A bit of farming, appointments, and projects. The proposed trip to SE PA to race on Saturday was canceled due to rain. Ended up taking Mrs to have an abscess opened. Then house stuff the rest of the day.

Oak Ridge Boys tickets for March 9th went on sale Saturday. All tickets same price, snagged some really good seats.  

Cornboil at church yesterday 

Today yard work and back to have abscess checked.

Tomorrow we're working on the local farm show. First we've done that in years. 

Bed calling   


Prayers for those in need.
