Good Morning;
Had a nice ride to the motorcycle club breakfast meeting.

Dug potatoes yesterday. Not as good a haul as previous years but they were all of a good size for grilling and there were enough for our needs and some to share. Digging was a chore as the moisture over the summer compacted the soil so each potato had to be separated individually. Then scrubbed each one. Still some garden to take off.

Today and tomorrow are going to be a climate change special. Today the high is predicted to be about 72. Tomorrow they are predicting 35.

Have a great day. Off to the dentist for the semi annual checkup.

May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow.

Ron,
Yesterday it was 99* here too, today 98*. Upper 60s for lows. Clear blue skies. Been loving it since we had a global warming summer in Alaska(in other words, below normal) and I had to wear pants and a jacket instead of shorts and a T-shirt.
Chuck,
Watch the snow in the passes, our rigs don't go so good in that ugly white stuff. Keep us posted on your arrival time.
Washed and waxed the towed over the weekend and Rita cleaned the inside and the trunk.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Need to pour first cup of coffee. 41 degrees with clear skies this morning. Heading to 68 with lots of sun. Hope to get some more things done outside. Mowing grass is on top of list. Hope the cooler temperatures stop lawn from growing. Had to cut it all summer every 4 to 5 days.

Those on the road be safe.

Good Morning All.

Good Morning;
Currently -2 C and there is a skiff of fluffy frozen water on the roof. Probably the same in the grass but it does not show that much.

Golfed yesterday and it was very pleasant. The cold front moved in just as we were finishing. Couple light sprinkles to warn us of the impending chill but still was great. Was able to go shirt sleeves for the majority of the round and then a light pullover when it started cooling.

Today is a continue to prepare for the south day. Coach is leveled and will move slides out to get access to a few drawers that the slides cover when in. Now have to start thinking about the few "want to haves" to sit out to take with us. Most of the essentials except for some food is already out. Fridge has been running and a lot of stuff is loaded in it already.

Have a great day.

May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow.

Hi gang,
We got half of the campground seeded today, plan on more tomorrow. Also got more metal on farm out buildings today as well.
Supposed to be good weather tomorrow, I hope to get it all wrapped up!
Popeye, if I do get sn@@ before you, it's plain ridiculous no?
Gordon, we're going to be prepping our rig as well soon, and head to TN about the time it freezes up around here.
Hope everyone is doing well, where's Lloyd? Take care all, t-minus 10 hours to coffee!

Good Morning Everyone! Coffee is good today!

We got a very heavy rain shower this morning! Man, when it rains over here, it really comes down! Now it is sunny, but do have some clouds around, and it will probably well up this afternoon!

The lady that bought the house and storefront across the street, has had a crew over there for a couple weeks now, and they have the storefront torn down, and are going to rebuild it, taller and much nicer! She is a very wealthy Honda dealer, and has a store up from our house on the main hwy. that comes from Bangkok! It is only 5 or so blocks from our house, and her new place across the street, so not sure what plans she has for the place across the street? It has been sitting empty for a couple years now, so it will be nice to have it occupied!

We have been getting ready for our trip to Japan, and it is getting short! We are going to Osaka, Japan! And have a apt. rented for a week, two bedrooms, fully equipped, even has a W/D! We are going to visit Disney, Universal Studios, Harry Potter, and go back to the Sumo Restaurant, where you can order really, really big bowls full of fried chicken! We went before, and it was so good, so going back!

WD, the farm is looking great! Yeah, get that grass seeded before the snow! It will come up in the spring!

Everyone be safe on your winter migration south! Take care! Rail!

Good Morning;
Another cool day here. -3 C going to +4 today. Warmer tomorrow.

Sno@ storm just south of us with freezing rain. Not a good time to be on the road. Should be good by the time we are leaving.

Good to hear you are getting the grass planted and upgrades done on you projects. Seems like there is always something to be done. Fix up one thing and it makes the stuff around it look bad! Vicious circle of fixing ensues.

Have a great day.

May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow.
