Late morning all!

Front has roared in, temps plummeting!

Wedding was flawless. Could not have been happier with all the entities that made it happen (event/venue coordinator, wedding coordinator, photogs/video, makeup, hair, food prep/service, the venue itself, DJ, security/off duty policeman, wedding party participants, and all the guests). And the weather was perfect, 74!

Regards, Roy

Mornin' boys.  Grey & 37 along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  My "light brigade" got the outside of the train decorated in 6 hours! (6 cars, both sides, 2160 C9 LED bulbs, 600 zip-strips, 7 1/2 football fields in length)  

Roy - Glad your event went so well.  You probably slept like a baby Sunday night.

Good Morning.......

A late thank you to all our Vets from yesterday.....

Raining now, in the 50s dropping like the proverbial rock and heading to 30 by 2 then $now.....a coating to an inch.  Which will not last as the ground is still warm....

No progress on Dad. He was improving in the hospital but, this isn't great news. 

I'll be back at the house tonight, quick meeting then home.  Local meeting so it won't take too long, I hope.

Did a quick securing of the temporary garage, shouldn't move too much, expecting winds later.  Need to get moving on garage #2 so Jenni's Charger can stay safe.  The Charger is still being worked on.

Prayers for all in need, check back later...... 

I am the monster in your head...And I thought you'd learn by now, It seems you haven't yet.

Good afternoon,

 Roy I am glad the wedding and visits went well for you and yours. I will be glad to take your 22 degrees if you will take our 8 we had when I got up. Wink

Went first thing this morning and got my blood draw for next weeks Dr. apt.

Sometimes it feels like I can't catch a break.
Worked yesterday on the whole house filters and the peroxided flow pump switch. All seemed just fine, then last night I heard it running when there was no water running so I got to do all that over again today. Bang Head Then as long as I was down there I thought I would check the whole house humidifier operation. When I turned it on it made all kinds of noise. Shut it off and looked inside. Darn motor support made of plastic was in 50 pieces. WTH? Angry So it needs a new motor and a support and they cost more than half of what a whole new one cost so looking for a plan B. UGH!!!  Tongue Tied

Oh well?

Good evening all,

Sometimes a day goes way better than expected.  Was NOT selected for jury duty so that was a weight of worry off my mind, not so much for doing the judgment as in getting behind at work toward the end of the year.  Did Christmas shopping with wife and that went better than expected.  Worked on layouts and accomplished way more than I thought I would.  Best of all, stayed home from work and missed a potentially messy traffic situation.  As AJ would say, "All in all, it was a good day."  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Mike C. from Indiana

Hello There,

word of the day is cold. Upper teens tonight .

Spent yesterday in shirt sleeves. Mrs and I did some outdoor winterizing and I offered moral support as son drug out a wagon that hasn't moved in a couple of years. 2 of the 4 tires were shredded due to broken steel belts. Replaced them with tires saved in the barn. He spent the rest of the day filling it with ear corn for grinding feed this winter.

The rest will be shelled and sold. So so crop so far. He's sold some and kept enough to feed with about 33% left to pick.

Today was rain then $now flurries while we went shopping mainly for needed stuff and a couple for Christmas .

Bed calls,  Prayers for those in need

Good morning from a beautiful clear COLD 15°F Southern Ohio,

 

I’m on nightshift this month and I’ve been reading the posts but not much to say and too tired / busy to post.  Doing yard work, washed all 27 windows on the house, and keeping up with the kid’s activities.

 

Grandson has a nice 8 pt that we’ll get mounted and I picked up the meat from the butcher yesterday.  I saw a really nice buck this evening but it was getting too late for a shot and still be able to get to work on time.  Later this morning I’m going to give blood at the blood drive before going to bed.  I’ve been working with the youngest granddaughter setting up a 10 gallon aquarium in her room.  That has been fun.  And now that the house is now all washed down and sealed, I’m going to dive back into finding the vacuum leak on the ranger truck, and of course more hunting to fill the freezer with venison.   

 

Mike C - Those days when all seems to fall into place are a real blessing

 

Kev - Yea, those days are just the opposite of what Mike C had

 

Chief - it seems like fewer young people are getting into hunting these days.  I guess they would rather play on a screen than experience what is real

 

Roy - sounds like the wedding was a big success.

 

Rich - prayers for peace for your dad

 

Fife - the lights on the train sounds neat.  Could you try to post a picture?

 

Banks - congrats on 44 years!

 

I need to go and check on the guys in another building

 

Good night and may God bless you and your families

 

Jim

Morning folks!

High 20's this am headed to 50 today. We will be back to 70 next week - as it should be!

Well, many of the wedding party got sick. We had a bridesmaid not feeling well at the Sat rehersal brunch and somewhat off during the wedding/reception. So the wife, my son, sister, BIL, new SIL, and several others have been down for the count since Mon night...ugh...still trying to shake it off. All us "oldies" had flu shots.

Glad I am retired....

Regards, Roy

Good morning from a 14 degree North Bluff above Marseilles.

Roy, I have my Flu shot! Yep, lots of people in a small space can be bad.

Taking wife to a pre op Dr. apt then PT today, So when she is in PT I am going to menards to pick up a few things with my Menards rebate money. Wink

Well, Plan B,,, So the Humidifier needs a motor because it is stuck as well and a support and they cost more than half of what a whole new one cost, $250 to $300 depending on where you get it. So I found a new one on E-bay less the controller for $144 with the shipping and ordered that. Those two parts I needed would have been $156 + shipping and this gives me everything else. This one should just slip right on the old mount and be good to go. Yes I hope,,,,Surprise

Mornin' boys.  Sunny & 27 along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  Snohizo last night, causing slick roads in area.  Lots of vehicles on the parking lot of my local tire place this morning.  I got myself 4 new "feel-goods" and a state inspection sticker.

Phish - As soon as our media guy does a video, I'll link same.

Roy...The esteemed law firm of Dewey, Cheetum & Howe from Ding Dong, TX will be handling my food poisoning case against you.
 
Fife…Looking forward to the video.
 
 
After ten plus years of hard use, my electric leaf blower died. It is a Toro. Has anyone ever fixed on of these?
 
Chief… Glad you are enjoying the warm weather today. Did everything in Roseyville shut down due to the cold?
 
 
Phish… We have an 8 pt buck that strolls through the back yard about once ever other day. Sometimes a 6 pt walks though, too.
 
 
Everyone have a good day.

We had an eight pointer wander into the yard and I just couldn't miss. He didn't move at all.

Hello there, 18 here this AM. Went to Mass, a 9AM appointment then stopped for breakfast on the home, turned out to be brunch as it was after 11 when we left the restaurant. A little house stuff and watching a movie were the rest of the day.

Troubleshoot like an engine. Open it up and check continuity in the cord. Then through the motor. Could be a worn out brush. Anything more than that and it's probably not worth fixing.

Bed is calling.

Good Evening,

Been working on Chris' old room, started painting today.  Got the 1st coat on the closet, doesn't look too bad.

Speaking of Chris, he had a 3 day meeting at Lake Tahoe, (work related, all attendees were state employees).  Everyone was required to make a presentation, about 50, topic was of THEIR choice.  Chris did one on a couple of his projects at the mine.  Went well.  He coordinated the trip with a trip to Vegas, Pharump, visiting Round Mountain Mine, active gold mine, then Tahoe.  When he was finished was deciding which way to come home, and remembered his travel mileage with Southwest Airlines.  So took a flight to Hawaii from Oakland, then back this past Sunday.  Drove down here on Veterans Day.  Had dinner with him last night, he had a lot of great pictures.

Buckeye, I had the same problem with my leaf blower.  Then remembered it also has a vacuum feature, the door to the vacuum adapter was slightly ajar.  Closed the "door" and it started up right away.  Might want to check that.

Dougdg, That is one terrific trophy you have!  Love it!!!

Take care all!

Morning.  46 and thats up from 25.  Cloudy and breezy so it feels colder.  Rain moving in this evening for a few days.

Had early meeting with Charter School Principal and its Board Chair [my developer GF].  Wifey now excited on gardening projects and teaching gardening to the kids.

Got dermatologist appointment this afternoon.  Followed by political event this evening.  County Commissioner friend has her campaign kick off.

Buckeye, tell your two bucks to come to deep woods lane and feeder in Edgecombe County, NC.  Plenty of good corn and no snow.  Green food plots too. Whistling

All stay warm [except Shake and Bake, who has perfect weather].

Good afternoon

Well Plan B kind of worked,,,

I replaced Humidifier cover and motor with the one I got off E-bay that had everything but the controller. Should of took right off but did nothing. So I had to install the old transformer board into it to make the fan work. Seems okay now and I still have all the other parts for spares. What a PITA!!!  Bang Head

It may make it to freezing today.

Buckeye, If you can't get that leaf blower working, get a Stihl BG86 gas, best hand held leaf blower you can get, hands down! 

Thanks Roy, things are falling into place. Dr said yesterday the operation only takes an hour and twenty minutes and will leave a 5" cut. WOW! She will spend the night in the hospital and come home the next afternoon.

Good evening all,

Busy two days at work.  Went to see Midway Wed. night.  Good flick.  Did not get good reviews, but I thought it did a good job of portraying what really happened.   Showed some events I was not aware of.   So you still learn stuff.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Rainy and 46 degrees.

Retirement party this afternoon/evening.

Something wrong with my new handheld Stihl leaf blower.  Took three pulls to get it to crank.  Usually Stihl only takes one.  Guess it was because hadn't been crank in a couple of weeks.

Later.

Chief, My BG86 usually takes 3 to 4 depending on how cold it is. 1 when it is warm.  I have had it for close to 10 years now. Never let me down.

Thing is just plain good.

It is all the way up to 40 degrees today. They said today that so far this is the coldest November in history here. Tongue Tied

Wife had her pre-op blood draw and EKG today. I have been leaving old CTT and Lionel catalogs at the waiting rooms just to see if they are still there the next time we go back. Smile, Wink & Grin One way to get rid of them.

Mornin' boys.  Cold out.  Working two trains today, and long hours at the yard during the week.  Keeping my good shoulder down, and doing what I can to get us over the hump.  No time for anything else, as I'm usually passed out by 7.

Youngest Princess came home for the weekend, so that picked me up.  Wifey headed back for the grandsons' birthday today.

Yes Banks, the stupid stone was measured at 18mm. The doctor will make a small hole in my right side, insert something into the kidney, break the stone and then suck out all the pieces. I will be in the hospital Friday and Saturday nights. I'm so looking forward to this. NOT!!!
