After that I gotta help the wife fill out some paperwork for medicaid, medicare and social security. The case worker that sent it said it would pay for all $140,000.oo of her appendectomy bill... That'll be quite a load off for sure! Ya'll have a blessed day. Tonight maybe I'll get to plastering the canyon on the ol' Blackrock Canyon RR. Kyle

Good still morning here in Wisconsin. I feel pretty good Mike, thank you. Hand and fingers, I hope your meds are strong enough. Arlington, Granbery plus a couple guys I know in Denton and Fort Worth, maybe if Covid goes away on our next drive to Texas I can stop in?!

The wife is out with her Crew looking at bushes, fruit trees and other things at a nursery. I thoughtI was going but turns out I was not invited. She fired the landscaper yesterday and we will do the landscaping ourselves, which is fine to me. She said maybe I can get my pool this year, yeah right. One thing I noticed here is we have mosquitoes and I have walked around to find any pooling dead water and I canít. My deck so far only is getting them and I have the bites to prove it. I have some small electrical devices that are in a bin somewhere. Have a great day.

Mike, do you live near the landing strip at Pecan Plantation?

Afternoon,

Mike the leg is doing well and healing nicely. Go back for a recheck in a week and a half.

Don't blame you for being a little nervous about getting the stitches out; I'm sure that the area is very tender. Depending on what type of stitches that they used; they often times have a "tool" that either bends and pulls them out at the same time or clips and pulls at the same time. Either way it actually isn't that painful; that's experience talking.

Tom is there any standing water or severe dampness under your deck? Maybe that's why the critters are only on the deck.

Have a safe day.

Appt went well, sent her home with some passive exercises.

Don't sweat the stitches Mike, new medicine and materials allow easy removal.

Employing all to heal!

A bear was hit near us recently. Rare for KY

What did you do with your leg Larry?

Kyle, best of luck with the settlement.

Laundry today, wife has that hawk eye going!
She said I need supervision...99.9 percent correct.


Boogie boarding yeah!

Tom : sometimes not being invited is a blessing.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Mostly cloudy, with a high near 78.

Larry, enjoy the warmer weather while it lasts.

Jerry, congrats on the tint and the table.

Karl, good luck with your re-cert.

Philip, your hawk eye and supervision comments made me chuckle.

Tom, Larry might be right about the water under the deck.

Mike, good that the hand is healing and hope the stitches removal is painless.

Kyle, doing that paperwork will be worth it if it pays that bill.

Passed the first test.
Second one at 4pm.
Bike ride and grocery shopping before hand.

Have a great day everyone.

Tom, sure, just holler.

Have fun,

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Good luck on the exam.

Good to hear folks are feeling better.

86F with no rain is the forecast.

This typing with one hand is killing me

Have fun,
mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.
Congrats on passing the test.

Weather in South Jersey cloudy/61. Later 77.
No beach again I think its coming to an end at least for sitting in the sun.
Will take our walks.

Everyone have a great day!!

Morning All,

Rick thanks for the coffee. Congrats on passing the first test and I'm sure you'll do well on the second.

Philip usually when the "Boss" speaks we better listen or else. A couple of weeks ago I had a ladder up against the front of the garage and went to adjust the height and it got away from me and the bottom step slammed down against my right shin-bone which turned it into "raw hamburger". Stupid move on my part.

Mike hope the hand is healing well and like others have said the stitches shouldn't be a big deal. Don't feel too bad about typing with one hand, I sometimes have trouble typing with two.

Karl have a safe trip home. Uh-oh the Mrs. is shouting orders...Yikes.

Jerry I'm sure that the beach can be quite chilly especially if there is a wind. Sounds like you had a "good run" of beach time this summer.

Low 60's today and we won't get out of the 60's until mid week next week. Tis the season. Have a few errands to run this morning with not much else going on today.

Stay safe, be healthy, heal up, and enjoy your day.

Morning guy! Thanks for the coffee Rick!

Yesterday was a 9 hour laundry day plus all the other worldly duties. BEAT!

Today doing the books.

Larry.. Those saw-tooth cleats!!!!
Those ladder tend to do what they want. Still trying to figure out how, when 15 feet up and facing shingles, on a gambrel the ladder does a 180 from the surface? Hanging there and then the sudden trip down as my fingertips loose grip, falling and no injury. Luck!

Have a great day!

Philip

Made it home around 4:30. Fairly steady traffic both directions. Orange barrels fewer than Monday. Colors spectacular in places but not close to prime yet.

Things green and 3 inches longer than we left them. Have to wait until Saturday. I shoot at 1 then a nice drive and dinner out with the Doll. Our 19th

TomO watch out for those skeeters, you and the horses. EEE Eastern Equine Encephalitis has killed some horses and sickened a human or two here in lower MI. Not all that Far East of you. It has a 33% rate of fatal results in humans. A dozen or so case in Mi a couple years ago was closer to 60%. Hard to social distance from mosquitoes, even with Gretchen or her half wit brother over there in charge.

Have good evenings all. Amber adult beverages of your collective pleasures for all.

That's when you get up, dust yourself off, and can't believe nobody saw you pull of this amazing feat!
