Good morning all. Can't sleep this morning because the neighbor left his dog out all night and it would bark at everything that moved. We have coyotes , rabbits and other nocturnal critters moving around all night so just about the time I'd calm down and drift off she gets to barking again. Looks like me and this dog are gonna have a come to Jesus meeting. This dog is useless she can't do anything but bark.

Good Morning Gang,
Lynne,
Glad that you got the majority of your coach done and that it looks good. A lot of work, but the end result is worth it.
Curtis,
Sorry to hear that the neighbors dog kept you up, I know how frustrating that is.

Well, Finished the roof yesterday morning and it came out pretty good. The rubber still looks good and didn't find any tears or bad spots. Hopefully it will last a few more years.
Coffee good this morning, another beautiful morning, sun is shining, a little cool but not uncomfortable. Rita's son had a stress test for his heart yesterday and we got good news, heart shows good. Still a couple of other tests and throat surgery next Monday, so we are still praying.

Have a great day All,
Frank

evening,
Boy what a day, got up and first thing was to take the 64 home, it stalled on me on Tuesday and I had it towed home and we replaced the fuel filter. Ran fine all the way back to the MH. Had trouble yesterday with it so next project is to replace the fuel pump when ever we get back to the S&B.
The path to get out is dry today but there is a storm coming in tonight or early morning. So will I be able to get out?, we will find out in the the AM hoping not.
Fed the horses tonight with grass cut and done all by hand, also gave them some apples boy they really liked them.
Well its time to hit the sack, more to follow,
Tim

Goodmorning everyone! Coffee was very good today!
Frank, glad your roof came out good, and I passed on the Beaver. The bathroom was too small for a big guy like me! Super nice, well taken care of, vintage (1984), Beaver MH! It is on rvtrader and craigslist, just n. of Effingham, IL. On the gillig chassis, air ride, air brakes, fresh motor(Cat 3208)and Allison trans.!
Curtis, I too did not get any sleep the night before last because of dogs! One of the neighborhood female dog was in heat, so, it was very noisey, with all the scuffels between the suiters!!
Good to hear that BAP is OK, just a little wet!!
Jay, the swelling will go down, use a bag of frozen peas!
Tim, horses love apples, it is their favorite! Glad you are having a great time! Enjoy!!
Everyone have a great day!! Rail!

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee good this morning, weather again a little cool this morning but will warm up to the mid 80's by this afternoon, and no rain.
Rail,
Sorry that the Beaver didn't work out, but we know that you will find something.
Tim,
Sorry that the 64 is giving you problems, hope that the rain holds off till after you get the MH out of the field.
Bap,
What a wonderful view, glad to see that you got your internet back, we all missed you.
Frank

Wish we had some deer out here but it's too noise with the small airport in my back yard. Several of the pilots are at Oshkosh this week so looking forward to hearing the stories when they get back.

Last night right at sundown one of the TV 6 Texas went up and gave the neighborhood an airshow. Was so engrossed in watching I didn't even think to get a video of him
So much fun to was him dive and buzz the field.

Neighbors dog and I had a training session last night and she stopped barking about 11 pm. So I got almost a full night sleep.

Well gotta get up and go make a fresh pot of coffee. Going to use the beans my daughter in law gave me from Puerto Rico. Definitely a different tasting beans.

Good Moring All,


Love the deer pictures as we see those both S and N or us almost daily. N field is where he Momma's usually raise their young. Course the turkeys are making it home also. Sometimes more out there than we can count.


Coffee good this am. Going to go out and try the second coat of deoxidizing on the back of the rig. With still w--king I have to work on it when I get the time so it will take most of the summer. Not going to do more than that because I have other things to do.


You all have a good day. For those barking dogs, earplugs. Lynne

Bap,


You and Debbie would be welcome. You can sit on my front porch and shoot them. Leave the MH at home and stay with us.

I was into powered parachutes about 20 years ago.
Loved them, but where I live now there are not enough low wind days a year to justify owning one out here.

Been trying to talk myself into getting into Gyro's, but being retired means that big disposable income went away too.


I really need to pick one hobby and stick with it!

The ride to breakfast was good today. I took the Kawasaki and rode some dirt roads through a shortcut and kicked up a lot of dust! My short cut takes about 5 miles off my route to the Airport Cafe where we meet.
