A lot more like February here today to. Cloudy and 30s. Snow by the weekend.

Yep SJ who ever came up with that saying "if it has teats or tires it will give you trouble" Should of made it if it has teats, tires or 2x4s it will give you trouble. Smile, Wink & Grin Looks like $1,500 will have us back and running. We have a big water pump, 2hp and 12 gallons a minute so it needs the big $$$$ pressure tank. Tongue Tied

Fife, I am ready for some NASCAR!

Evening folks!

Cloudy all day, temps dropping fast. Maybe some snowhizo/sleet tomorrow.

Had to go downtown (an experience in itself, and it was light rain) for county jury duty today. I had a high number so ended up being released just before lunch. There were seats for 600 in the jury room, my number was 2149. Room was not full. Lowest number was 1. They say only 20% show up. Looks to be the case. There must have been a big trial as the first group called numbered about 100 people to one courtroom.

Regards, Roy

Doug, for many years that was my theme song.  Told Wifey, you don't like, you stop shopping.  Now it is deer hunting.

Very warm day.  Morning helping Wifey outside.  Eye appointment and then took her shopping east of here.  Tomorrow afternoon, back injection.  That shuts things down for three days.  Rains coming anyway. 

Have a good one.

Sun @ 25 degees, snow tonight through tomorrow. I can't complain, winter has been kind to us this year. No real train news to talk about. I see this software can provide a popup but can't remember my password

Good morning all!

No snowhizo! Heavy cloud cover kept temps from dropping below freezing. It is ugly, drizzling, and gray out, 30's for today...damp, cold.

No real plans today. Taking it easy and will piddle around with some more train repairs - sorting through projects to see which ones are worth doing and those that go to the scrap bin.

Chief - Good luck with your procedure.

sirjames - Promise me you'll never change.

Mornin' boys.  Cloudy and 40 in the Potomac Highlands.  Wifey wants to go to the Short Gap mall (aka Dollar General).  Actually, I like their small bags of grass seed.  I spread the seed out last year, before each snow, and the lawn looked pretty good in '19.  

Spent more time in train room, planting foliage and floral.  May have stumbled on an easy product to create distant wooded "canopy".  Need to get back to Hobby Lobby.  I started piecing together my Green Spring area.

The back thingy went best ever and fast.  Got another ACE brand back brace [have one in pickup for farm and chores use].  Have a Copper Fit one in house.  Worthless.  

Later.

Good morning all,

Busy day at work Wednesday.  Watched the LEGO builder contest show last night.  Could do without the host, but the creations were good.  Weather bad, but made it home last night and work today.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Good Morning from a wet 37°F Southern Ohio 

Still working through the supervisor qualifications for the new job and reviewing documents for the supervisor position I was hired for.  It’s like I’m getting qualified for two areas at the same time. 

Chief – Glad the back injections worked 

Roy – I had a jury summons for this past Monday but when I called Sunday for the status and the court was canceled 

Doug – That music / cartoon was funny ! 

Banks – I agree.  My favorite football to watch is high school football. 

May God bless you and your families

Good evening, Lots of bad going on with the well thing. Hope to get it fixed by tomorrow. Looks like $1,500 or a bit less will do it. Asked both the son and SIL for help,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Laugh Fat chance!!!!  Tongue Tied

divebardave, I would rather eat dog dung than Grits but that is JMHO,, heck, I love Liver. Some things are love it or hate it.... to each his own!

Jumped on the marker rebound yesterday and pulled enough money out of the 401K to pay off the Gator XUV 590 next Monday. Yes

Hello there,

the winter without snow continues. High 30s and raining now  but supposedly getting a couple of inches tomorrow.

Grits aren't bad. Have them occasionally for breakfast

Jury duty here is hard to get out of. You can delay but eventually you will serve.. Mrs got seated on a jury a few years ago but got released because the arresting officer was a friend and the judge went to high school with me.

Got the tractor back in one piece again and working. Turned out that  an internal hydraulic line connection failed again. Tried to get a new one from the Massey Ferguson dealer. According to the serial number what we had shouldn't be in our tractor. What was supposed to be there wouldn't fit. Local hydraulic shop couldn't bend a line tight enough. Took some afro engineering but (knock on wood) the original line is in and holding. Going to test it on the log splitter 1st nice day.

   I bought grandson a drone for Christmas. He couldn't get it to fly stable so gave it to me and wanted me to return it. I studied the instructions and YouTube and decided it needed a drift adjustment. Did that and got it to fly around the yard a couple of times before it started gaining altitude and flying west refusing to respond to the control. I even tried emergency shut down but it is gone.

Best try to sleep.

 

Prayers for those in need

Rain has finally stopped.  Sun would come out, cloud up and rain and on and on.  Windy and turning cold fast.  Dropped from mid 60's to 43.  May hit 31 by morning.  Then back up again.

Puke Energy dropped power at 8:30.  Back on at 2:00.  All for a pole replacement.  Whole town out.  Service getting worse.  Duke too big now.

Gas went the other way.  Was $1.94 yesterday and $2.29 this AM. 

Have a good one.

Mornin' boys.  Cloudy and 30, with a light covering of snohizo, along the Alleghanie front range.  Youngest Princess home for the weekend.  I am conductor on tonight's dinner train.

Spent time in train room yesterday, hooking up lights, planting more foliage, and prepping tomorrow's SPF.
