Sun and 50 after starting out ~45 in the night sometime. Forecast is for mostly sun all day.

The Doll and a cousin spent most of the day at the cemetery overseeing the renewal of their civil war vet multi greats grandfather's grave which had sunk 10-12 inches into the ground. It turns out the thing had been set in a base with about a yard or more of concrete so quite an effort was involved in it's renewal. The Doll then to her daughter's place in town and never showed up here until nearly 8. Good thing I went out for a Big Mac about 2 or I'd have faded into the sod like grampa's store. I spent the nice, bright but cool day tinkering with a couple projects, ending with tree trimming, one of a dozen that need it. Tired me a bit but that's ok. Another old movie topped off the evening. The Big Sky with Kirk Douglas from 1952. Crappy sound and my ears didn't get much out of it but she likes to one out watching movies....so. Was about a group of trappers traveling up the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers in a boat, against the current poling and roping it along. Indians and evil doers made for non stop adventure.

I have a rack of ribs I bought that may see some smoke and fire today. Too early in the day to commit...another tree or two may get the axe, Stihl actually, today. Again, too early to say.

Stay Safe and healthy all.

Good morning everyone.

Sunny, with a high near 75.

Jerry, thanks for the coffee and breakfast.
Still working nights.
Won't get to days until we go back to a regular schedule on weekdays and they reinstate all the jobs that were abolished when the lockdown started.

Fortunately last night was my last working till 2AM and I'll finish now at 11PM.

Nothing planned except go to work at 1 PM.

Have a great day everyone.

Looks like everyone took the day off yesterday.

Quick trip to the grocery, bike ride, walk the dog and mow the backyard planned.

Mike, that's what I keep hearing about retirement.

Jerry, weather here was perfect, so it could of been a beach day.

Karl, sorry about the ribs.

Tom, what's up?

Decided a day off from work should be a day off from chores.
Didn't mow the yard yesterday so it will get done today.
Then back to work for two days.

Have a great day everyone.

50 going to 80 with bright sun in MI today, nice.

Spent much of yesterday tree trimming again..taking today off, my hands need a rest. Weíre going to get the headlights replaced in the Dollís 4Runner today. I was going to try but my hands donít fit where they need to be. Nice day for a ride.

No big developments ion my model endeavors, trip to the UP coming up, so why start anything?

Everyone have a good day. Safe and healthy.

Good morning from severely clear So. Wisconsin. It was in the low 50ís this morning and only 59 now. A nice day coming today.

Rick, recovering from throat surgery on Monday morning as an out patient. Nothing serious, they go in and basically scrape the lymph
nodes. Unfortunately I am a veteran of this. Second time for this type of surgery and 3rd time they have opened up my throat. 1st time
that this is a out patient procedure. I am fine, thanks.

Just going to chill today. Be safe.

Mostly cloudy, with a high near 75.

Tom, hope the recovery goes well.

Karl, sounds like you've earned a day off.

Jerry, no pain, no gain.

Good morning Mike.

TGIF

Mowed the back yard yesterday and today is the fronts turn.
Eye doctor appointment in the PM.
Haven't had my eyes checked for a number of years and lately started to notice some floaters and seeing a white streak (only at night) in my left eye.

Hope everyone has a great day.
