We arrived home safely. So glad we were headed South. At one point traffic N bound was backed up for several miles to pass thru a construction zone. Two knucklehead semi drivers, same company by their colors, were adding to it by rolling along side by side blocking anyone from passing. Saw zero traffic enforcement anywhere along the 350 miles home. Some times it's like every few miles. Sure can tell the allergy situation is much worse here at the home compound. Temp was nearly 80 when we arrived home, 40s when we started the day.

Saturday is off to an early start, nice to sleep in the real bed, but the air is full of something kicking the allergies in full. It is forecast to be nice today, time to uncorral the green goat(s) and graze on the lawn later. Book keeping and mail catchup, mostly toss out political crap. The Doll will only have the 11 year old today, it seems the 17yr old has been allowed to have a job and will be so engaged today.

Everyone have a good day, be well, be safe.

Good morning from Wisconsin. Another nice day but without the wonderful sun we had yesterday.Grandkids are coming at 3:30. We drove East and north yesterday and had a 53 mile detour which actually was the best part of the trip.

I have to straighten up I was just told the walkway between the house and the stables. The kids have been rolling blading there and some of the planter construction has left a mess. So I will head out to do that.

Enjoy your day

Rick thanks for the coffee. I did enjoy some down time yesterday. Have an uneventful day at work.

Karl allergies must very annoying around this time of year. I usually take a whole plastic bag full of "junk mail" to be recycled every week. Unless it's something important, it goes in the bag.

Tom hopefully the gkids didn't make too big a mess for you to clean up. Next week we're taking some time and drive around and enjoy the fall colors.

Jerry, Mike, and Philip hope your doing well.

Going to be in the upper 70's today but thunderstorms latter on. Not a big fan of those especially when it gets really windy. Going to help the Mrs. with a project today while it's cloudy out.

Have a great day and be safe.

Greetings folks,

Rick, thanks for the iced tea. Glad you finally got a ride in.

Sounds lie everyone is doing well on travels and arriving safely. Allergies are kicking up here, too. Weather has been nice at 92F and no wind. Looks like we will get no rain from the Delta. Sad so many are without power.

My sister is arriving today from Colorado. She is staying for a couple of weeks to visit Mom.

Hand continues to improve.

Have fun,
mike

Good morning everyone.

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

A chance of rain, mainly after 2pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 67.

Mike, hope your allergies aren't too bad and enjoy your sisters visit.

Jerry, the English never give me a problem, it's the American's.

Larry, hope the t-storms weren't so bad.

Tom, sounds like you had a nice little trip.

Karl, welcome home and sorry bout the allergies.

Good morning Philip.

I've got 12 days off I need to use before years end.
Used the first one today and I'll use the rest every Sunday for the rest of the year.

Have a great day everyone.

SUNday morning bright greetings from the palm of the mit. Much nicer looking than yesterday's cloudy dampness. I managed to get all the lawn mowed as my accomplishment for the day.

I tinkered with photos yesterday and here's one I took from the front window on the place in the UP out toward Lake Michigan.



Here is another from a couple miles down the road I took Thursday



And finally this, a bit South of our place as well:



The leaves have peaked and will surely be starting to let go and fall off. I was amazed here yesterday how many of the pines on my property have shed their "leaves" as well.

No big plans yet for today. It's been nice waking up in the real bed the last couple of mornings.

Good plan on the time off, Rick. My last 6 months at the Sheriff Dept I was able to take a day here and a day there and with the schedule as it was give myself 10 days off by only taking 3. Eased into retirement nicely.

Well, off to figure out a plan, or not, for the day.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. I hope you enjoy your day off. I like your days off plan.

Tom, a man's work is never done.

Larry, hope you project went well.

Jerry, I am really enjoying your mill build chronical; such nice work.

Karl, glad you arrived safely and thanks for the terrific photos. It is beautiful up there.

Forecast for today is 98F. I think the weather breaks back to normal fall weather tomorrow.

Sister arrived safely with her two dogs. We now have four dogs chasing each other around the house. I'll be glad when they get accustomed to the doggy door and play outside.

Think I'll make a pot roast in the slow cooker today.

Have fun,
mike

Good morning. We are back from the Farmers disappointing Market. Just seems to be nothing there and very expensive. The food carts and the bakeries were IMO the ones doing a good business.
Terry purchased squash for making soup. I got some egg rolls.

It will be a train room day as Terry is baking and creating soups today. Now that the weather is really changing to more seasonal we will have soups just about every other day. I plan on being in the
train room. This is usually the week we start our trek to Austin to visit the son. It would take us 3 to 7 days to get there depending on how many interesting stops we find. But not going because of the
Pandemic. Have a great day

Morning everyone

Not sure were Rick is this am.

Coffee is ready with water for the tea lovers. Cold sodas in the fridge.
Will start off the day with scrambled eggs with sides of bacon, sausage and home fries. English muffins with butter and assorted jams & jellies!

Weather in South Jersey rainy 42.

I got one side of the building done pictures later.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Have a wonderful day!!

Monday morning, a big turn to plain and dull outside today with rain forecast. It was another gorgeous day yesterday, we took a nice long ride and enjoyed it. We stopped by the Subway the Doll's grand daughter is working at and had a couple of sandwiches, and a hug.

Back at the ranch we did little as it was too nice, and lazy. I took my camera on the ride but was too lazy to take any more pictures.

Today, hmmm...haven't thought of it yet.

Everyone have a good day.

Howdy folks,

Jerry, thanks for coffee and the terrific breakfast...tasted good. Now I need a long nap. Lovin' the mill. Persist!

Tom, hope you enjoy the kids!

Karl, what are you riding?

Forecast for today is 82F and sunny.

Sister has headed out to the park to pickup pecans, Mom is taking a nap, and Sharon is playing games on her computer. I just got home from a very early morning trip to Fort Worth for a car oil service and just got back. So...I think I'll take a nap, too.

Have fun,
mike
