46° here in Upstate NY this morning, we are to have showers today with a high temperature of around 50°. Tomorrow will be about the same and then it will cool down for a couple of days.

Yesterday was a beautiful day and I was busy all day, it will be the same for today and tomorrow.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Morning

51 this morning in NC Ohio with light rain and temps too cool by Sunday. I won't be working in the garden today, looks like a good day to stalk some breakfast and get lost in a gun store. Whatever happens be safe and Prayers to those and country. Mike

Good morning from Bartonville Texas, 64 and partly cloudy, 75 later.
Got the pin box and one set of shocks installed yesterday. The second set was for the wrong size axle so we have to make a return trip in a week or so.
The pin box has an air bag and shock, it does change the ride somewhat. I need to experiment with the air pressure to see if it will get smoother.
Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

Great morning all,

Seems a little overcast with 39°, nearly no breeze, highs reaching 51° later here near Halfway USA. There is a distinct trough extending from north east New Mexico all the way out the St. Lawrence Sea Way that is walled off weather to either side. Warmer & wet on the south side and cold and wet on the north side.

Yesterday was surprisingly nice. In the afternoon I noticed it was really nice & I was working in just a t-shirt. We had all the windows open for a couple hours to air out the house. That won't be the case today or through the weekend as we might see some mixed snow & rain.

Chores & tasks were handled outside. I started fabricating a bracket for the long antenna that is our marker flag on the RZR. The short one is fine for out west but Michigan requires a taller one to ride on the dunes. Other things got put away in the barn & back in the big trailer.

I noted the frost is still in the ground at about 6" inches deep. Lots of migrating birds are making their way back to this latitude. I could hear some Sandhill cranes near by.

All the filters I need arrived with the Thursday deliveries so I can start draining engine oil & trans fluid out of the ******* Limo. The next trip is approaching & grandma needs her truck ready to roll.

morning all. 38 to start, mid fifties later. Was high 60s yesterday but windy.
Still lots of Sandhill cranes still here along with geese. Noisy birds!!!
Worked on tractors yesterday morning then spent the afternoon trying to fix the running lights on one of the stock trailers, never did figure them out. These newer pickups and the wireing, matched with older trailers just don't play well together sometimes. But did find some other problems with the pickup, so it will have to make a trip to town to be fixed.
Have to make a trip to town today, new glasses are in and still need to get to the bank, can't put it off any longer.:rolleyes:
Have a great FRIDAY, be safe .
GOD BLESS. Dean

Morning Gents! Its 60º here and cloudy headed to the 70's with a chance of rain. The rain chance increases for tonight and tomorrow. The farmers are starting to work. Several have already planted corn.

We're finally making some headway on our water pumping. Still can't reach the culvert but we can feel it with a long pole. Found a really nice arrowhead on one of the pond banks yesterday! About 4" long and as perfect as when it was made.
We'll go check on the tractor after breakfast this morning and see about the water level.

You'all have a good one.

Good morning, GoGo. It's 59 in Louisville, heavy overcast, and going to 74. Fifty percent chance of rain today, 80% tonight and 100% tomorrow.

Got a prayer request this morning for Miss Cindy's father, John Sallee, who lives in Evansville, IN. He's an Air Force retiree, including some time in Vietnam, where he was around tankers that carried Agent Orange. He's 82 or 83, and it's hard to say the chemicals contributed to his health issues, but possibly. At any rate, John apparently is in the hospital and apparently in his last days. Cindy and her family would appreciate you asking God to give her dad an easy passing. We'll be driving to Evansville in a few hours.

Y'all have a good'n and be safe.

good morning gents. It's overcast with 53º here today. Supposed to get into the 60's. May try to fish a bit after work, because the weekend is going to be busy. Have to work the shop tomorrow then do another damn gun ticket tomorrow night. I hope to split wood on Sunday. Worked at the shop last night and got absolutely nothing done last night when I got home. Cooked some good steaks on the grill for dinner with a nice salad. No carbs, but really it's been 3 months and I don't miss them. Cheat a bit here and there, but it seems after I cheat a few times, I actually lose more weight. The big thing is portion size. I don't eat 2 plates worth for dinner anymore and don't really feel hungry. Feel better overall too. Down 13lbs this morning. :)

Gotta run. Prayers sent for Miss Cindy. Also if you don't mind, say one for my uncle Bob. He's got similar problems that Koger had, maybe worse! Terrible infection in his knee replacement. He's on his SIXTH operation and still has a bad infection. At 80-ish, it ain't easy to fight.

Have a good one

Charlie

Friday

Good morning all. It's a cloudy 55 in Indy and won't get much better. Had a good day at the range yesterday. The old Salvages did pretty danged good considering who was driving. Julie's brother took a new "Cabelas exclusive" model 12FV and had trouble with it. I think, among other things, he had the TN cant going on. That's different than the IN cant which is actually spelled can't......as in can't hit anything. Loaned him a Weaver Level Level Level and told him to center the adjustments and start over. Of course that means another range trip. :D I think the .224 Valkyrie is going to be OK soon as a figure out a way to get it to ride a rest. I may have to resort to a bipod for the M Lok forearm. It just isn't happy on the rests/bags we have.

Gotta' clean guns and pay some bills. Have a good day.

55º with clouds and some light rain from time to time just north of Music City.
Trees & wild flowers are in bloom and all the birds are singing spring songs. I do love this time of year. Spent a good part of yesterday making new backers for the new target frames. I have some ideas I haven't seen or tried before and we'll soon find out how well they work or not. Today will be a mixed bag with some business related stuff and more backers to make. Prayers for Miss Cindy's father. The older I get the more I pay attention to the ills of the elderly, although even at 71, I reject the idea that I'm elderly. Just well aged & seasoned.

G'day Y'all,
Rick

Noontime greeting from the sticks of Kentucky, just got the cows and cats fed.
MPC. I just saw your Groundhogs butt as he ran under the barn. No shot but i will get him in a few days. I have been trying to catch one in a live trap with no luck yet.

Kinda odd with all the rain we had all winter, but we are extremely dry right now, hope it rains soon and get some green grass for the Damcows to eat.

Trying to hide here at Otis's house. Judy Brown is trying to paint something. Done that already. Done. Call Skruske.

Here's all he needs, Doug. :D
