35° here in Upstate NY this morning with the high temperature only getting up to about 37°. Supposed to be fairly decent all week so far with the temperatures warming up toward the end of the week.

Yesterday was a nice relaxing day, we went to church in the morning and then just took life easy the rest of the day. Today I will be on the road first thing this morning to start the week off.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good morning from Bartonville Texas, 57,clear and 72 for the day. We did some landscaping yesterday which means digging up rocks. There's no top soil, just rocks and a little dirt covering them.
No plan today.
Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

Good morning all. It’s 44 in Indy heading for almost 50 and maybe drying up a little. Looking forward to the week. Plans are to burn some gunpowder a couple of times. Weather and Julie’s schedule look to be cooperating and we may get to the rifle range. Today will be pistols indoors.

Gotta’ get going. Have a good day.

Great morning everyone,

Just 27° with a cold north wind but the thin clouds will give way to 43° later here near Halfway USA. It did get nice for several hours yesterday with the temperature rising to 59° for about an hour. Then the wind switched direction and with it a 10° drop in about an hour. At least any threat of rain stayed to the south.

There is a low pressure system planted over the Ohio River Valley that will keep Doug, Shane & KYFisherman wet today.

The task list for yesterday got handled. The lights on the big double wide are all working. Too bad, in order to cut costs, the manufacturers designed the wiring harness with a single point of failure. :mad: One break & you lose the rest in the string like Christmas lights.

The power washer got a workout. The RZR got a much needed bath and the Arizona desert we brought home is now washed into the yard. While all that was out I hosed off the 4wheeler too. Got the rest of the U.P. mud cleaned off from last deer season.


Today is errand day. Drop off tax info, meet with the finance guy, replenish the cupboards, buy lots of oil to change most everything with an engine around here.

morning all. 22 to start, mid 50s later today, could get into the mid 60s the rest of the week. Time for the spring "breezes" to start around here, with warmer temps the dirt will start moving, and not just with tractors and plows!
Thanks for all the anniversary congrats. We really didn't do anything special, went to church, wally world, out for a nice lunch and home again.
Really need to get a lot of work done this week around the shop. Cows have slowed down on the new baby calves being born, still between two and three hundred to go though.
Better go eat breakfast, have a great day.
GOD BLESS. Dean

good morning folks. It's 51º here on the dry side of the front. Supposed to get wet later tonight. Sure was a pretty day yesterday. I spent most of it outdoors. Not sure the temp but I was sweating while cutting wood. I got all I gathered Saturday split and stacked before noon but still had a little room in the shed. I decided to finally cut up one huge ash tree the electric Co dropped for me last spring. It was too big to drag the log up to the shed so I had to cut it in manageable pieces and bring up on the trailer. Still need to split and stack that big mother. Should be enough to fill the shed and more. Now to find time to split it. :rolleyes:

Guess I better get to work. Still LOTS to do. Prayers offered. Have a good one.

Charlie

Morning Gents! Its 54º and cloudy here headed for the mid 60's. Its forecast to be about the same all week until the rain returns over the weekend.

Not much going on this week. I'll go check on the tractor after breakfast. We left it running overnight pumping water out of the ditch. Hoping to see the water level has fallen. Probably have to take a fuel tank over there and fill it back up with diesel.

You'all have a good one.

Good morning, GoGo. It's 57 in Louisville, only going to 60. Yesterday was a little overcast, but the high of 60 made it pretty nice. No more rain expected here until the weekend.

Speaking of weather, strong thunderboomers came in last night about midnight, just as my head hit the pillow. I was worried they'd keep me awake, but I beat 'em. Looks like MPC is gonna get a heavy dose of rain from that same front, and it might even reach Charlie. This morning, we have more rain rotating our way from Doug's area, Indy, which is fairly unusual.

Charlie, check off another Monday, but this one's nicer cause I'm working from home. I'm running a little slow because I stayed up late last night trying to finish up our taxes. Right now it appears we'll get a fairly nice federal refund and maybe $100 back from the state. It's hard to tell whether the federal refund is due to the changes in the tax code or because I discovered a deduction for Miss Cindy's business (hair styling) that I've been missing. She has to pay both employer and employee parts of the old FICA tax, but you're allowed to turn around and deduct some of the employer part from your gross. I think I've missed that adjustment in the past.

One big change became evident last night. The standard federal standard deduction for couples went up to $24,000, which meant I didn't have to itemize deductions on my federal. The problem, though, is that state tax law didn't change, so I definitely needed to itemize our charitable contributions on the state form. But with the program I use (H&R Block Tax Cut), you fill out the federal info first, then that gets pulled across to the state form. So, if you didn't itemize on the federal side, then that info isn't available to get pulled over to the state side. The solution: Go back and make all the itemized deduction entries on your federal form even though you aren't going to use them there. At that point, the state form will pull the itemizations over. I haven't heard this discussed much and I suspect a lot of folks will end up paying state taxes that they don't really owe.

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

Good morning everyone.....in the shop a little later today....got here about 7:45 this morning. The trip to Wilmore was pretty smooth with a trip to Sonny's BBQ in Nicholsville before dropping off the daughter.

Customer picked up one refurbed stone box and dropped off another busted up turd. Haven't looked at it yet to see how bad it is for sure. Waiting on a cooling fan for one of my welders so I can get it back up and running to weld more spools...should be here today since it just came from Ky. Have to take the back end apart to get to it.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Morning gang, 47 here headed to low 50's, overcast and a few drops of rain. Yesterday after church, I had 2 buddies I got started in reloading 2 years ago come down, and tutor them on bullet casting. They each ended up casting about 200 .45 swc's, and lube and size them. They left with a list of items needed to get started casting. Need to make a doc appointment to look at a rash, then probably watch it rain the rest of the day, you all have a good one, remember those in need of prayer, Buff out!

going to be cold for a few days on the south shore of Lake Erie. Mushmouse is still digging out next door in NY. Lightman, you are a brave soul to leave machinery running unattended. If I would baby sit all night there never was a problem. leave for a cup of coffee and there was a crash and burn.
KF, there is not much salvation in the new tax bill save the increased Standard Deduction. Many of the old deductions are gone. I ended getting kicked up a tax bracket even with my very modest income. I usually overpay from the retirement account to cover my business taxes. Stroking out 4 figures on April 14, not a day sooner. The real tax breaks come in for the Million plus crowd.

It's a relief to wake up, look out the window and all I see are small patches of snow left. It was 36 which makes me smile thinking back to colder mornings. Our road is transitioning already. We have two seasons here. Dust & mud with a short change over time. The Graydiggers have been coming out regularly now. Once the boys haul their heifers to Spring/Summer pasture I'll go see if I can thin them out some.
