63° here in Upstate NY this morning, the high today will be around 74° with showers expected this afternoon. Tonight into tomorrow we will probably get rain from Florence.

Yesterday I basically didn't do to much, I got both cars washed, loaded some ammo and took life easy. Today I will be busy and probably the rest of the week for that matter.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good morning, 68 in Iowa, high in the high 80's again.
Church was great yesterday, a wonderful break from Gary's place and work. But, soon as I got home people began coming, looking for more items they seen Saturday. Then another guy showed up to help and we cleaned most of the rental shed while my wife manned the shop. 6pm last night we crawled back to the RV. 7am and it begins again.

Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

Good Morning

70 here in NC Ohio with Flo knocking on the back door. What Ken is experiencing is the reason why I'm reducing the inventory around my home, I don't have any kids to get even with, so I don't put anyone thru that burden. This is the first Saturday of the week so enjoy!! Be safe and Prayers to those and country. Mike

morning all. 45 and on the way to the mid 80s again. No moisture in sight.
Some how we got a good dew yesterday morning, made some really heavy bales, just not enough. But got another field baled, on to the next one today.
More hay getting cut every day, hope some day all will be done. It's been a long dry summer but the hay stacks keep growing!
Breakfast is waiting, best get to it. Have a great day and be safe and dry.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Oh, I even got time to go to the range yesterday and shoot some. Was nice to just relax and enjoy!!!!

Good Monday morning folks. It's 71º and cloudy. Looks like Flo is coming to see us shortly and some possibly heavy rains are on the way. Heavy rain bands are stretching along the eastern edge of the mountains the whole way to NC. Those folks down there need a break. I busted my hump yesterday getting the lawn ready for one more try at getting grass seed to grow before fall. I roto-tilled up the bare spots this time, planted grass seed and put straw down. I also found time to get the yard mowed. Still need to get the old widow neighbor's mowed, but that will have to wait until it dries out later in the week.

Back at work today. Better see what I missed on Friday. Have a good one.

Great morning folks,

61°, a little patchy fog and a clear sky here near Halfway USA. May get to a record high today in the upper 80's.

The ride north to St. Ignace was easy enough since much of the traffic was headed south. We crossed the big bridge & rode the Starline ferry across to Mackinac Island. I have not seen northern Lake Huron that calm in the Straits in a long time. Usually it's windy & cool. The "short ride" from the north side is about 10-15 minutes. If we'd left from Mackinaw City, that passage is usually about 1/2 hour. We entered the harbor after passing Round Island.



We stretched our legs by walking the southwest shore boardwalk then crossed up hill through Woodfill Park to the main avenue at the foot of The Grand Hotel.



Debra Dearest & Miss Judy visit with one of the hotel hostesses.



Last time I toured the island was 35 years ago & it was mostly college kids from this state who provided guest services. Many of the people who work the island these days are foreign. Asians & Caribbean made up much of them. If you are wanting T-shirts & traditional fudge, Mackinac Island is where you go.

All in all we walked about 3 miles, people watching & browsing several tourist shops. If you ever make a trip there, I suggest you take a bicycle or rent one on the island. There is more to see on north east part including the fort & governor's summer home. Bring your wallet, though it isn't as expensive as the big resorts in Florida, you can plan on the ferry ride costing about $25 per person. Later September it is far less crowded with July & August being the busiest months. In about 3 weeks, the island and both supporting towns will become very quiet until Spring.

Good morning, GoGo. It's 71 in Louisville, only going to 82 because of Florence clouds and drizzle. Don't know how much rain we got overnight, but I don't think it was heavy.

Scott, I'm glad the Carters got to visit Mackinac. It's one of my favorite parts of your state, there and over on the western edge, where all the "lumber baron" Victorian mansions are located. Some of those towns over that way are absolutely beautiful with all the old homes of that era.

Y'all have a good'n and be safe. Charlie, I'm checking off another Monday. Got a meeting with my money man and a second guy, a certified financial planner, tomorrow. If the news isn't good, I'm OK with that, I just don't want to retire and then wish I'd worked another 6 months or a year.
