Howdy folks,

Wow, I can't believe I forgot to check in. Okay, lets see, my name is Mike...it is Monday, my eyes are green, I live in Texas...okay, I am all right!

Worked on the bench today and had some fun.

It has turned December cold here and a freeze warning is in affect for tonight. Yikes! I hope my MG has enough antifreezze...

Have fun,
Mie

Sorry I have not been around except to read others comments. We lost our last 2 dogs within a 2 month period and life lost some of it's spark. We have had at least 1 dog in the house for the past 49 years and it sure was empty around here We were not going to get another but finally decided we need another. On Nov 3rd we picked up a 10 week old chihuahua we call Milly and the house sure has been happier.




As far as modeling goes I have not done anything for months and I don't even have the beach as an excuse.

Sorry for your losses. I just buried my dog of 15 years. I still hear her walking and nails tapping the hardwood floors. Kinda like you, mixed emotions about a new one. I still have my pet cat so I'm content for now. Congrats on the new Milly! Cute doggie!

Good morning everyone.

Reg and decaf coffee are ready, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Pepper too.

Cloudy and low 50's in Joisey today.

Seeing the dreaded s word a lot way too early.

Roland and Philip, sorry to read about the losses of your friends.
Roland, congrats on the new companion.
BTW, how do you keep your floor grout so clean?

Mike, we need a better profile picture to see those green eyes.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Hello again, sorry for the losses guys, hope ya'll get past it ok. Roland, we're moving up there to escape the unbearable heat. We've lived in Arlington, Tx for our entire lives (65) years, and with my heart condition (30% function) she says that we need to move to a more northern climate. Anyway, the cold doesn't bother us as much as the heat. We hated it when we were kids even. We are anxious for a change and are looking to move to a small town like Elizabethtown, there's 7 million people in the DFW metroplex now and it's growing by 100,000 per year. So we're getting off the ride so to speak. Besides the housing is much more affordable in the area we want to move to. So, here we come. We expect to move in about 12 to 18 mos. yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good evening folks,

Jerry, thanks, but I'll pass on the bourbon. It has to do with A&W root beer and bourbon a long long time ago...

We had a nasty 23F / -5 C today. This weather is not welcome in Texas!

Worked at the bench today. Getting ready to put the roof on a clerestory.

Work at lodge all day tomorrow, so no bench time.

Have fun and stay warm,
Mike

Good morning folks,

Philip, thanks for the hearty breakfast. Perfect for this 26F / -3C morning.

There is frost on everything this morning, and I hope it got a few mosquitoes in the process.

Heading to lodge.

Have fun,
Mike

25 and sunny in MI. Headed off monetarily to get my yearly eye exam. Itís more necessary as we become, unfortunately, diabetic an old. My glasses Rx right now isnít right, either. Should be fun to drive afterward.

Enjoy the day, buds.

Good morning everyone.

Philip, thanks for the coffee and breakfast.
That fire feels good on this chilly morning.

Some sun in the AM but then the clouds roll in and the temps will drop into the low 30's.

Jerry, don't forget the pork roll when you go shopping.

Mark, that's the same philosophy I'm going to have when I retire.

Karl, good luck with the eye exam.

Mike, that's a big change in your weather.

Got to tidy up a bit before the room mate comes home later today.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.
