5° here in Upstate NY this morning, it feels like about -3° with the wind chill. The high temperature is to g et up about 31° today. It is to warm up over the weekend some.

Yesterday was another busy day but I managed to get through it. I not only had computer work to do but I had quite a bit of gun club paperwork to do. Today I am hoping things will be a little easier.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Morning Gents! Its 46º and cloudy here headed for the mid 60's. There is rain in the forecast for today and tomorrow with T"storms tomorrow.

I survived my first infusion treatment yesterday. No bad reactions or anything.Just a long day in the Dr's office but it was about as comfortable as they could have made it.

Yesterday was day 4 of the kitchen remodel. They started on the new floor and moved into the dining room. Hopefully they will finish the floor today.

You'all have a good one.

Good morning everyone it's 28° here at the shop this morning. Looks like the snow went south of us and just seen a few little flurries. Hopefully getting out of here early today so we can get a set in before dark. We are hunting out last tournament of the season this weekend. It would be nice if we got a few more dogs this time and if other teams got a few as well. Last 2 hunt we were the only ones to bring any in.

I got more done to my truck yesterday, I need to get the boxes all in and I hung all the doors and tack welded the hinge in place for test fit.


The Ups guy is going to dislike me as Monday I should be getting 4 new rear tires in. Then I need to get the front end aligned and new tires up there as well.

Well off to get something done hope everyone has a good day!

good morning folks. It's 15º here this morning. Hopefully the last of the arctic cold for the winter. Next week is supposed to be 40-50's with Sunday possibly hitting 60. My ass is dragging this morning. Had to drop off the wife's Explorer for a recall/safety thing and needed to get up an hour early to do it. Of course I knew that and went to bed a little early but just thinking about it was enough to not let me fall asleep. When I finally do, the phone rings about 11:30. Mom's furnace was out and she wanted to know if she should call the repair guy, now that it's almost midnight. Sure, if you want to pay triple the repair bill, go ahead!:rolleyes: She's got a fireplace with an insert and a half cord of wood left. I told her to build a fire and go to bed. Of course, then I couldn't get back to sleep.:(


Going to be a long day...TGIF. Better try to get after it. Have a good one.

Charlie

Nice looking truck Shane!

morning all. 30 for starters, mid 40s later same with the wind. Was a nasty one yesterday, dirt and tumble weeds moved around a lot. Possible moisture today but the wind will probably blow it out before it gets here.
Finished the blue loader and the one JD tractor up yesterday, other JD won't start, probably have to change batteries before I can get it out of the shed. Got the big blue New Holland tractor in the shop for todays work.
Not sure how many calves were born yesterday but a bunch, it's nice to go checking and find several new one each time.
Have a great day... it's FRIDAY! Stay warm and dry out there.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Good looking truck there Shane!

Good Morning to all you Gents from up here on the vast snow bound prairie and the season of “March Madness”. +16 degrees this morning, and a very rare morning with no wind. Late this afternoon It is supposed to start to snowing and continue on into all day Saturday, with an accumulation of 5-8 inches of snow. Temps are supposed to drop to zero and high winds along with the cold temps. It’s the typical March Madness storm that occurs at this time most years and will make travel difficult for tournament participants and fans. But to hockey fans here in the state of hockey it only normal for a blizzard during the hockey tournament. We just suck it up and get on with it.
March Madness is the month that all the High school state athletic tournaments for hockey and basketball are held in the Mpls/St. Paul area. This week the boys hockey tournament is being held. 2 of my good friends and I are driving down to St. Paul’s Xcel center for our annual pilgrimage to watch the semi and final games for the weekend. You see some damn good explosive, exciting demonstrations of hockey talent , as those young men reach way down deep to pull out all they can give, in a giant effort to win the title. It’s a display of skill and sportsmanship that you seldom see at other sporting events. There is only one winner, but all participants at this level are champions. My Buds and I just love it! The three of us played hockey in high school 65 years ago. That was back in the glory years when small schools from northern Minnesota would go to St. Paul for the hockey tournament and kick the crap out of the bigger city schools and determine one state champion for all schools in the state. The smaller out state schools didn’t win many basketball or football tournaments, but we made up for it in hockey. Today they are divided up in classes which is better for the kids and the schools spirit and reputation.
Also there is the Minnesota Deer Classic going on also in St. Paul.This is the display of all the big white tail bucks that were taken this last season. Boone &Crockett is there and the lucky hunters can get them measured up. We will see who, what, and where will have the bragging rights this year. Another passion of ours.
Well got to get going, we are ready to leave. Everyone stay safe and have fun.

Good morning from the sticks of Kentucky where we have a few flakes of snow....just a few.



Took a photo before they melted because its 33° now. We always miss the snow it seems.
Lightman, i like you way of kitchen remodel...let THEY do it.

Yesterday i put a barn door back on where the Damcows decided they needed to remodel the barn...took the 2 by 6 with it. I used lag bolts instead of nails to make it more of a challenge next time.

Dean, i have no new babies for the last few days but mine are strung out all year so i dont overwork my bull. Shane, i am still getting Coyote photos at night on my trailcam but haven't seen any for a month.
The satellite is off so there must be snow in the air up high.

Charlie, hang in there its maybe Friday.
The Damcows are waiting on breakfast so i better wade thru these snowdrifts and feed them.

Upper 30's with light rain in the hollow, should be like this all day. The Perfesser stayed here last night and is finishing up for the week at the range today. I have to go across time to pick up some freight and fill orders that I have held for a week or so. Might spend some time trimming brass for a rebarrel that's complete now. Rain is also forecast for tomorrow, so there won't be many outside activities. We'll see.

G'day Y'all,
Rick

Nice lookin' truck Shane!!

Good morning all. It's 31 in Indy heading for 41. Got a few little snow flakes kinda' floating around. Too and I are just hanging around for a the rest of the morning then I'm going out for lunch. Fish fry is on the schedule for tonight and that's usually followed by a stop at the gun shop. Julie's been thinking about a Glock 43X but I talked her into a HYVE Technologies +3 magazine extension instead. $32 vs 400-450 wasn't too hard to sell.

For those of us who save daylight, we change our clocks Saturday night/Sunday morning. :rolleyes:

The truck is coming along nicely, Shane.

Have a good day.

Good afternoon, GoGo. It's 44 in Louisville and we've had snow showers and drizzling rain off and on today. Not enough snow to bother anything and it was actually kind of pretty this morning. Real rain is due back tomorrow.

I've been AWOL for a day or so because I've been nursing Miss Cindy. I'd better reword that: I've been playing nurse for an ailing Miss Cindy. She wrenched her back on Sunday, but it didn't grab her and get bad until Wednesday afternoon. As her nurse, I went whole hog with the uniform and everything:


Y'know how we gripe to one another on here about various car and truck repairs? Usually it's an ugly story about having to dismantle half the engine in order to replace a $2.98 sensor. Well, about two days ago I started getting the fast-blink on my right turn signal. My daddy taught me as a pup what that meant, and I was hoping it was a rear lamp because I thought I had some spares in the glove box. So, I went out to my driveway just now, found the spare bulb and only had to remove two screws on the taillight assembly in order to replace the bulb. I had the whole thing done and tested in less than 5 minutes. Most repairs on any kind of vehicle aren't done that quickly, so I thought I'd report to the rest of you that sometimes it really is an easy job. This is on a 2011 Ford Escape, and I confess that I had replaced rear bulbs before, so I didn't have to waste time searching on YouTube. Now, if my washing machine repair will only go that easy.

Hope y'all had a good day and didn't cut anything you didn't intend to cut.
