Poured first cup of coffee. 45° with cloudy skies this morning. Heading to 60° with cloudy skies. Pulled more weeds. Gave up on bending over and got the sprayer filled with weed killer out. That should cut back on bending over to pull weeds. New grass is growing real good. Went to a neighbors place to see why their Ford 5000 tractor front end loader would not work. Found that oil filter had a hole in it. Got a new filter on order. Going to help another neighbor do some siding repair today.
I was surprised to see Comcast/Xfinity cable inspector out early yesterday morning. Must be doing a good job. My service has been working very well lately.


Sad FastGlassMan has passed. RIP Bobby. Prayers for his family and friends.

Everyone stay safe and well.

Good Morning All.

Good morning

My apologies for smart mouthing the camground we stayed at this weekend. It dawned on me that the receit said XP. Meaning extra person. This should have been brought to my attention at check in. Off to pack for my next camping adventure at our local state park. By myself M to F. DH wants to stay home and get more of the garden planted. DD has computer classes M to Thursday. RIP to Fast Glass Man. Condolences to his family and friends. Take Care, Ann

Good morning!!!38, headed to 63.

Sprayed the creeping charlie again on Sunday with Weed B Gone. Getting a good kill. finally finished getting the toilet repaired also.

We played bridge with good friends Saturday night and won. Our first outing without our instructor.

Steering gear is out of the coach. Separating the drag link from the pitman arm was a real bear for my mechanic. Now, to get the rebuilt one installed.

Sorry to read about Fastglassman passing. Our condolences to his family and friends.

Keep the shiny side up.

Good Afternoon,

R.I.P Fastglassman, Hope you are at peace with those already there.

Went to look at a H in PA on Friday. 38 ft Monaco. Had a rust problem. Emailed Terry and asked him some questions and asked if we should walk away and he said yes. Nice couple and nice looking rig but rust is a problem.

Still cool here in MI. Enjoying the asparagus and it has been doing quite well.

Hope everyone is good. Take care, Lynne

Drinking first cup of coffee. 36° with mostly clear skies this morning. Heading to 70° with a few clouds. Got neighbors siding fixed yesterday. Did some clearing of woods to east of my house. Need to get chipper on tractor. Pile of limbs that need chipping is getting very high. Grocery shopping this morning. Then mow the grass when it dries.

Everyone stay well and safe.

Good Morning All.

Good morning!!! 41, headed to 67 with a possibility of rain this afternoon and all day Wednesday. Yeah!

The new steering gear is installed, but now the jack leveling system is kaput. Trouble shooting the system yesterday revealed that all of the components work, but will not communicate from the switches in the cabin. This thing is a money pit!

We will go camping even if the jacks don,t work. The site we have booked is level. If not, I have wood blocks I can use.

Lynne, take your time, you will find the one this is right for you.

Ronj, you take the best pictures. Perhaps you should publish a calendar.

Keep the shiny side up.

Drinking first cup of coffee. 49° with mostly clear skies this morning. Heading to 69° with rain most of the day. Grocery shopping went well. Grass mowing did not get done. Helped a neighbor put in a drain collection system for a low point in his yard. His wife was out walking their baby. When a dog attached her. She is going to be OK. But is very up set. By the time everyone got settled down it was to late to mow lawn. I will probably regret that. Because rain is forecast for the next 3 days. I will not be the first time I mowed in the rain. No other plans.

Everyone stay safe and well.

Good Morning All.

Just talked to Deb Blythe. Lloyd fell on his dirt bike on Monday and broke 6 ribs and punctured a lung. He is in Piedmont Medical Center in the ICU. He is in a lot of pain. Deb said it was OK to post here and on the Arizona 4 wheelers page.

Prayers are needed please. I will let you know,if I hear anything else.

Good morning!!! 53, headed to 63 with rain.

Lynne, thanks for the news about Lloyd. Deb, Linda and I sure hope you both recover quickly. I crashed a motorcycle once and it hurt like hell. He will get better.

Hi gang,
Hate to hear about Lloyd. Sending up some prayers for healing and wellness for him and Deb as well. Wondered why I wasn't seeing his daily posts here. I used to race motocross and some hare scrambles. I have fell, and Orrin, you are correct.
Did a lot of weed spraying in the past few days. Lots more to do.....raining today.
Gotta run, bye for now.
