Very early in relation to the USA. My body clock is so screwed up I don't know nuttin, just it's daylight right now and it was Dark a while ago. There is no baby wailing so all is good. Dean I hope you had a good Bday yesterday, and yes they do speed up every one comes quicker. Carl P thanks for the Air express MRE, but it was Damspagetti when it got here. You have beautiful Gdaughters and you should post those photos on here.... you are a better man than I. LDS, the 2 Orange Tomkats are being cared for by James, my 4 yr old Pseudodamgrandkid.....hopefully. No telling where my Damcows are by now but they had plenty of grass when I left.
Capt Jesse is still gone somewhere but hope to see him tonight.
It is very warm here but I see the temps at home are cold. Maybe Charlie will get his deer this weekend. Doug have an extra pancake for old JR.
Bernie Weenies planed for lunch today, so I'm good to go. No idea what to do but I spotted a Bar on a long walk I took yesterday.
I sure miss my Orange Tomkats and my AR 15 back in Kentucky.
Everyone be safe and 'have a great day.

30° here in Upstate NY this morning, it will be warmer today with the high temperature going up to about 55°. Of course tomorrow and Sunday we are to get some rain and possibly snow. Yesterday was a sunny but cold day and I worked inside as much as I could. Today I will be back on the road but it is Friday.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Friday Morning

36 degrees and going up to 61 just like Dean today.
Sure will be glad when the election is over. Living up in the northern Bluegrass, our local TV stations are out of Cincinnati so we get bombarded by commercials for candidates from Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. The local city council candidates were out knocking on doors yesterday. I know two of them and we had a pretty good visit.

Sorry for the spaghetti mixup JR. I forgot that we had a fancy dinner party last Saturday night and used up the last of our chicken Parmesan MRE’s. You’re right next door to Austria. Might wanna cross the border and get you some genuine Vienna sausages fresh off the production line. They’re mighty good but I bet they’re even better before they stuff ‘em in that little can.

Sure sounds like everybody’s busy. Charlie’s probably up in a tree by now with a muzzleloader. They Greyfox is bivouac on a mountainside somewhere. I’m afraid to speculate what the Fisherman is up to in East Tennessee.

Hope Scott and Debra’s family are doing alright.

Time for another cup of coffee before I head out this morning. Make it a good day.

Good morning domestic and world travelers. It’s 37 in Indy heading for uppah fiddies. Nature’s alarm beat the clock this morning else I’d still be pressing the sheets. Can’t seem to shake this cold. I suggest buying stock in Kleenex and CVS. Time to make something of the day. I’ve got a strange urge for pancakes.

Have a good day.

morning all. 30 and very foggy here, might get into the 60s today.
Got about 300 head of damcattle sorted and calves taken away for weaning. About the same number to do today, but these are fifteen miles from here so we will be hauling the calves home after sorting. Lots of trailer loads!
Had a good day yesterday, no injuries to man or beast :D. Just really a lot of work but enjoyable.
Charlie, I've seen the plastic wheel/tires for sprinklers. Real expensive, the neighbors have some that are all steel except for a bolt on rubber tread, heavy and expensive. No flat tires though!
Better try to get moving along, hope the fog clears soon.
Have a blessed day, prayers for those who need extra.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Good morning, GoGo. Well, fall has finally reached the Smokies. All week down here it has started out around 50 or so. But right now it's 42 and the weather guessers on TV last night were talking about frost in some spots. It's supposed to shoot up to 72, though, so it should be a sunny, nice day. For anyone heading down here, a few of the trees are just starting to turn, mostly the yellow ones. Only decent red I've seen is just certain spots on certain sweet gum trees, just what you'd expect. But we can almost see the change from day to day, so I'd say in another week they'll be showing quite a bit more color.

Well, I escaped the Smoky Mountains Knife Works with only about a $130 dent in my credit card. That 10% sales tax down here adds up, but then I asked about a military discount and I think I got 15% off due to that. I've been learning how to put scales on knife blanks, so parts for that is mostly what I bought.

The Bud's Gun Shop across the street was pretty nice, too. I asked if they were directly connected to Bud's in Lexington and was told yes and no. Best I could tell the one in Lexington is the original and apparently where the owner lives. Then he started buying up gun shops as they went up for sale all across the country. They said most of the time if the shop was well established and the name was worth anything, they left the name the same. The shop here apparently was a new build and kind of a franchise deal, with Bud and a part owner. At least that's how I understood it. My hunting/traveling buddy looked at a 9mm Ruger ECS that the Knife Works had for $209 and it was $219 over at Buds. Buds did have just about any semiauto pistol you could want, so I got to handle/fondle several that I'd only seen pictures of, including the little 9mm Glock 43. Also saw several S&W 7-shot .357 Mag revolvers at both places that were sweet, sweet handguns. Ruger makes a 7-shot .357 Redhawk that I've been lusting after for awhile and the Knife Works had one of those for something like $550, I think. If I ever retire, that might just be my gift to myself. For whatever reason, I gravitate toward revolvers, and if I can't get out of a jam with seven rounds of .357, then I doubt the other 10-12 rounds a 9mm high-cap holds would have helped.

JR, if I'd known about your Italy trip a little farther ahead, I have several cases of MREs we could have shipped there ahead of you. One thing they have over there that's pretty good is this fancy rolled-up bacon they call pancetta. I've only bought it to make one or two fancy dishes and remembered it being pricey. Just checked Walmart online and they offer some that's $5.74 for 3 ounces. Yep, you heard right. If it's cheaper over there, you ought to bring back a suitcase full and recoup some of your expenses. Probably drive the drug-sniffing dogs crazy. Ha!

Greyfox, are y'all camping in the big Harbor Freight garage? Put the front on that thing and I have some kerosene heaters that would work beautifully and be totally safe to heat that thing. Hope you're having a big time and seeing some birds. I learned at the Sugarlands Visitor Center the other day that a kingfisher doesn't build a nest, it burrows into the bank like a dang muskrat and lays its eggs in there. Never knew that.

Dean, I didn't get signed on yesterday, so I'll wish you a belated birthday. Hope it was a good one.

That's all for today from the Smokies. We have to check out of our "cabin" by 10 in the morning, so I imagine I'll be busy and won't get to read the good morning post until we get home. The Tennessee Vols have a home game at 3 against Alabama, so I sure hope we don't get hung up in traffic as we go around Knoxville. I imagine tailgating is pretty big down here, so Lord knows when folks head to the stadium.

Y'all have a good day and be safe out there.

45 on the way to 82 today in the shadow of beautiful Mt. Shasta.

The dogs got me up early this morning. The local bear has been raiding garbage cans in the area. The dogs catch scent of him and go on full alert. Even my oldest dog is all fired up. Don’t know what they would do with a face to face encounter!

Have a great day and be careful out there.

Good morning gang! 37 heading to 60 here in S Central KY, going to be a busy day today, got to put up a deer blind, check the feeders, getting ML's ready for ML weekend long season here tomorrow. We can kill does for the first time in years, wife and I will hopefully get a couple, will be our only chance to hunt this year more on that later. Hope Charlie is doing well, he probably has a buck down by now!! JR good to hear from you everyday, don't drink to much wine over there. Remember those in need of prayers, buff out!

Shoot Sam...I wish. Ain't even up a tree yet. Had a decent evening last night...until I had to get out. Deer were all around me in the woods and corn and I spooked every damn one of them walking out. The whole 1000 yards to the truck. So pissed I didn't even hunt. I saw a spike and 5 pt early and some does. Got a new fluorescentornge hat and the m'fer must GLOW in the dark to a deer. Had a doe come out right before dark, look up at me and blow and the go back into the woods. Wind blowing from her to me and I was still and in a stand with just July head peeking over the top. Not gonna wear that one until I roll it around in the mud a bit

It's 9:30 here and 49° now. Not sure te temp earlier but we had heavy frost. Took 10 min to defrost the windshield. Just went to town for breakfast, coffee and fuel. Picked up some ham and rolls for lunch and I'll head out about noon to try again.

Have a good one.

Charlie

A fine October good morning to you from Standing Stone State Park, TN, in the upper Cumberlands. I think it was 38º when the dogs decided it was time to get up, just after daylight. Probably around 50º now, sunny and going to near 70º before some rain this evening. We wandered around the park yesterday with no particular plan and enjoyed the day. Much of the same is planned for today. Birding is pretty much a zero as the fall migration has already passed through, but there are still a few that aren't common around home.

Mikey, we didn't use the big yellow garage. I've picked up something a little smaller and somewhat easier to put up for one person. Also, we can zip it up and confine the dogs, as they are reluctant to be confined. I'll attempt to attach a couple of pics. A place like this is good to be for a couple of days with nothing to do but just be.


G'day Y'all,

Rick
