    Looks like we've made it to page 100 again.
    As tradition has it we'll lock up this version of the lounge and start Volume 30.
    Thanks to everyone that participated and looked.
    See you soon.

    Good morning from Wisconsin where unlike Karl’s Michigan, the weather changes every 5 minutes!

    I got to the bench after the grandkids went to sleep last night. Fixed it up and hopefully today I will weather a building from the Paper Mill complex. Terry said last night if really feel that strong about tearing the layout down, do it. Then start over. Still thinking!

    July 5, good choice for a date to retire Rick.

    Karl, love the picnic bench in the snowdrift picture!

    Everyone, be healthy and safe

    Morning everyone

    It's a cloudy/50 here in South Jersey.
    Not the kind of day they forecasted!

    Glad your house had a lot of activity Rick.
    Hopefully there will be a buyer sooner than later.

    Errands to run.
    Termite man here for our yearly inspection no critters found.

    Everyone have a great day!!

    Morning Larry, Rick and all. Should be an amazon delivery today. Electric trunk lock for Gena's car and some new weed eater line. My old roll is almost gone 1200 feet. Had it since 1998. Oh and the bathroom vent is locked up humming. Busy for a bit. Have new vent already.

    83 yesterday and the AC kicked on for a bit last night.

    View from my foxhole as I coffee up!

    Great Day!

    Good morning everyone.

    Coffee, hot water for tea and an assortment of cold sodas are ready for your enjoyment.

    Partly sunny, with a high near 65.

    Karl, nice pictures and good to see you in one of them.
    Glad you made it through the fog safely.

    Mike, taking those walks with the dog was excellent.

    Jerry, I agree, sad to see many in that thread that aren't here any more.
    But we still have quite an active forum going and I enjoy it every day.

    Tom, right now I'm thinking July 5 will be my last day.
    Still have 12 days to use up, not including my vacation days this week, and I'll study the calendar this week to see where I want to use them.

    Larry, hope you had a nice "walk about" with the Mrs.

    Home all week on vacation.
    Didn't get much sleep Saturday night and didn't get much more last night.
    So, I'll be taking it easy today.
    Maybe another walk with the dog and build a fire and enjoy a cigar and the book I started yesterday.

    Realtor was happy with the open house.
    No offers yesterday but felt that he would get three before the end of the week.

    Philip, Roland, Louis, Les, Mark, Kyle, Ron and everyone else hope you are all well.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Morning Gents,

    Coffee's on along with hot water for tea or cocoa. An assortment of cold bevys in the Fridge. Have some homemade biscuits topped with Country gravy and grits to go along with it. So enjoy.

    Karl that's some cold looking real estate; makes me shiver just looking at it. Not many people can sit at a picnic table with a pile of ice in front of them. The Michigan weather slogan sounds a lot like New York's......"If you don't like the weather then wait five minutes".

    Rick house sold yet?

    Jerry I answered your PM. Glad the pooch is happy now Diane's back home.

    Mike sounds like your on the "downhill side of unpacking~persist.

    Tom sometimes we just need a break from the bench. Loved the cartoon by the way.

    Philip, Ron, Kyle, and Louis hope you guys are doing well. Roland how's the PT going? Hope I didn't miss anyone.

    It hit 75 yesterday with the same today here in New York. Hope to get some trimming done outside this afternoon. Easter Decs are coming down today and being put away; maybe even some bench time later.

    Hope everyone has a great day and be well.

    Sort of cloudy with sun at times this morning on the shore of a much calmer lake.

    We had the full gamut of weather yesterday. It was cold and still windy when we got going yesterday, even thought of pulling the pin and heading South….becided, tho, to work,our way up to the North toward Gitchee-Goomy….The great Superior. As we did the weather cleared and warmed up, we traveled E on County H-58 past the area not cleared in the winter…

ID:	992765 in the middle of a snow drift….

    By the time we got back to the home area the temp had dropped to 44 degrees and we were in a pee soup fog with 1/10 mile vis if lucky. It was white cane time back home the final,15 miles, crossing the River at Manistique we could just barely see the water….then an hour after arriving home….the fog blew away and the sun came back out but the wind and chill remained….

    By then we were exhausted! A real day that backed up the old saying, It’s Michigan, if you don’t like the weather wait 10 minutes….

    Probably stay close to the compound today and do a chore or two…or not.

    Good day to all. KarlS in the swamp.

    Howdy folks,

    Rick, thanks for coffee. Good luck with the open house. The best part of your day was walking the the parks no less. What fun!

    Couldn't log in most of the day, Joe helped me so I'm on now.

    Karl, those are some breakers. I just don't think of the great lakes being choppy, but they are. Keeping busy up north?

    Larry, hope the bench was good to you, but mostly hoped you enjoyed the walkabout. Good stuff.

    Tom, love the cartoon. Still laughing.

    Jerry, sounds like a wonderful trip. Wow, over 100, nice.

    Who was that said Rick was buying? I'll take a triple MacAllan 30 year old, neat.

    Having a Muddy Waters kind of ears are happy, soul too. Hawks play tonight and hope they win. Unpacked last box of clothing. Think some of it will go to Goodwill.

    How are Philip, Lewis, Kyle, et al. today?

    Have fun,

    I'm late but it's still 5:00 somewhere!

    Bar is open Rick is buying so step right up.

    I'll have a nice Four Roses neat.
    It was a day to relax and straighten up my room.

    If your around stop by and join in.

    Rick look at this thread that was brought up.
    And look to see how many guys that posted are either gone to train heaven or don't post here anymore.
    A lot of memories in that thread!
