Urk . . got to stop polishing. Finished my bike, did the front wheel on Janet's bike and now it is raining with small hail. I am now in the house with my hands firmly on the keyboard and nowhere near the polish or polishing rags. Thank goodness I did not attempt the power polisher!

Saw on the news last night they had the road crews out with snow plows to plow the accumulated hail from the highways near Calgary.

Tim, best of luck with your foot. Gordon, my wheels on the Harley have custom twisted spokes and they are a royal pain in the you know what to polish, but when done they sparkle as the wheel turns, I'm not saying what those wheels cost . Steve good that things are normalizing, would imagine it'll take a while.

OMG. Looking forward to seeing them sparkle. I guess I will cheer you on while you are working on them. Janet's V-Star has spokes and I polished them once. That was enough.

Evening/morning
Coffee is good might be the last of the day.
We have hotspot so your stuck with me. Had a wonderful drive up northern Minnesota. Our normal 5 hour drive took 7 1/2 hours. We stopped either for the girls or us almost every rest area stopped, and got some wonderful cinnamon rolls and Carmel rolls,
(tobies). Veery relaxing. We left Mpls 80 degrees up north arrival 59 degrees. We had to turn on the furnace
A few pics looking out the windshield, coming into Nashwok (sp) City Rv park has a public dump station for donation can't remember the last time I was asked for a donation so I donated.

Thanks every one for the well wishes very very much appreciated, and thanks again for the B-Day wishes

Surgery is next Thursday @ 10 AM . First open Surgical suite. Stay overnight (I asked if that is written in stone) her reply was well see how your doing. Joe asked me tonight where are we going to do re-coup, I said My brothers... on the Pontoon Fishing. "NO NURSING HOME"
That went over like a lead balloon.
Joes dad said fishing tomorrow, he found a hot cropee spot.
He might even take us to his hidden fishing hole. Can only get in with a canoe but guarantee a bass, never caught one of those but have had for dinner. Yum
Joes Dad made Pickled Northern, better than pickled herring which is pretty tasty.
Thanks again everyone ,
Those on the road be safe,
Tim

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee is good this morning, weather about the same, hot and humid with the popup thunderstorms to roll in later this morning. Normal summer weather here. Well, Rita and I have most of the grass mowed in the park for the 4th, today have a couple of spots to hit and a couple of spots to weed eat and we are ready , YEAH!!.
Steve,
Glad that you are starting to return to normal, can't wait to here more about your journey.
Tim,
Prayers go out for your speedy recovery. Enjoy your trip up north, those are fantastic pics.
Lloyd,
Safe travels, enjoy your trip.
Gordon,
The wheels on my TV and 5er need polished, since you like to do that, I will be happy to help you out, LOL.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Good morning all;
Great day here. Canada's birthday - so Happy Birthday Canada!

Tim - great news on the surgery. Prayers for a good surgeon with steady hands and a super surgical team. Great pictures by the way. Hope you have a good time, catch lots of fish and get the first bass (think they are called lunkers??).

Frank - no worries. You know I like to wash the vehicle prior to polishing so if you have a hose nearby I could do that too. And if you leave the windows down I might as well do the inside while I am at it!!! LOL

Anyway hoping for a great day for all of you. Catch a big one Tim.

Now I know what a "lunker" is. Thanks. Another question: What size line do you use to haul in a lunker? Can you use a fishing rod or do you need a boat winch?

OK you guys it is time to stop with the hospital visits!! Hope your finger heals quickly Jeff.

Sorry I missed your question...What size line to catch a Lunker ?
That's a tough one ,,,,I think it would have to be at least as long as the fish is from you !

Good one.

Just wondering. Because if bap is lunker size a 10 lb line would likely be on the skimpy side..
