9° here in Upstate NY this morning, a little wind out there with the high temperature today to be about 20°. We have a 30% chance of snow this morning and then it will be cloudy the rest of the day.

It wasn't to bad a day yesterday, I got a call from a company that I do subcontract work for asking if I could take more work from them. I talked it over with them and told it would be okay. We will see but they are talking two days a week for one location that I haven't been to in awhile. If it works out it will be a nice fill in.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Morning

Good morning George and others to follow. 18 here in NC Ohio with a slim chance of snow. Yesterday was way to cold but nothing compared to what's in store for this week!! All I need to do is keep the fires burning, may need to get more kero in town. If I remember right Koger has the hip surgery Monday, and my Prayers are with him and the surgeons. Be safe and Prayers to those and country. Mike

Good morning folks. It's 21° here and looks to be a chilly but dry weekend ahead. Went out to eat last night at the distillery. Hard to find drinks and food without carbs at that place but managed to find shrimp and pork skewers to eat. Went to bed early and now I'm wide awake at 6 o'clock on a weekend. Guess maybe I'll sleep in tomorrow a bit. Need to bring more wood in today and get ready for the cold week ahead. Woking at the shop today and have another gun drawing tomorrow. Be nice to have a weekend off.:rolleyes:

Guess I'll get some coffee on and start the day. Have a good one.

Good morning. We’ve got 20 heading for 29 in Indy. Haven’t checked the forecast closely but I hear we have some seriously cold weather coming next week. Only a few weeks from spring. Got my fingers crossed. Hitting the road for the usual AM adventures. Have a good’n.

13* and snowing pretty good. 5-8 expected. Mush Mouse has me beat. Looks like we are headed for "I can't feel my face cold" pretty soon.
Putting a set of pristine Sterrett mics on fleabay today. I have not used them in years. That is the surest way to need them a week after they are sold. As the young lady says.

Morning Gents, 36 and cloudy here heading for the low 50's. We're forecast to have a cool down next week but not what you guys are probably going to get. Heading out in a little while to watch the Grandson race his Pinewood Derby car. You'all have a good one.

morning all. -3 so far this morning, might get to 28 later today. Much colder over in town at -19.
Worked in the shop some but mostly worked at a good cleaning of the wood stove and stove pipe. Seems to be back to normal for now, wish we had something besides pine to burn.
Chores for this morning then may work in the farm shop, just not real excited about it.
Better go, breakfast is waiting. Have a great weekend and stay warm.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Good morning, GoGo. It's 27 in Louisville, going to 41. Those numbers are almost the exact average for this date here. More arctic cold on the way, though, as others in the East have noted.

Nothing much on schedule for today except to watch a couple of basketball games. The better game will likely be tonight at 6, #8 University of Kentucky vs. #9 University of Kansas. I've reserved a seat on this year's PD Safari, so I need to pull inventory on my loaded .223 and .204. i'm pretty sure I have plenty as the number of targets has been down the past few trips. I can't tell that the decline in dogs has had much impact on the fun with this group, and that's the main thing.

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

Great morning everyone,

Clear with 52° this morning here in the trailerhood. 74° for later.

We rode around in the desert for 80 some mile south of Yuma yesterday. We were on the edges of the bombing range much of the day.



We were with sight of the boarder wall, about 4 miles away. The boarder patrol was very active so we figured it best to leave them too their work and not interfere.

As we toured northeast we spotted a couple A-10 making their incoming runs. Huge clouds of dust from the ordinance impacts could be seen for miles. We stopped at the foot of a mountain to take a short hike. We found the petroglyphs that indicated the presence of a water pool. Deb & Dorla walked in a wash while Mike & I climbed rocks.



Not sure what adventure is in store for today.

Back in the 80s when I was in the Army Reserve, my outfit took to the field at Fort Knox from time to time. In those days Knox was still the Home of Armor and there were some A-10s based there so the Army trainees could learn about coordinated infantry/armor/air operations. Much of the A-10's role has been handed off to choppers, but it remains one of my favorite planes.

Thanks for the photos, Scott. Post some of the petroglyphs if you took any. The early Indian culture in that area fascinates me, especially the Anasazi. I'd love to visit some of the cliff dwelling ruins down that way sometime.

Be safe, have fun, send us stories.

GOOD morning from the sticks of Kentucky where we have 28° and a half inch of fluffy white stuff on the dirt. Running late today as I fed some hay last evening after i returned from a visit to the worlds most famous dentist... Dr. D or Dr. Jean of the Volkitten patrol. She is the Queen Volkitten. I got to spend some time in the chair getting massaged by Hooters as she leaned over working on my teeth.

#2 son and feral Damgrandkid are here now but headed back to ft Knox soon. We did FaceTime with Captain Jesse and his 5 month old little girl yesterday, it's good to see them. They hopefully will be returning to the USA in about May or June. Homeless, Car less, and broke...such is the life in the U.. S. Army.. no assignment yet but he's recommended for promotion to Major.

A big controversy on the Kentucky Haunting Forums about posting Bloody photos of Coyotes hanging from barbed wire fences. I post some but i usually use an angle that is not so graphic. You know. Squeamish people get offended and may get Snares banned like they are in Colorado. It won't affect me as I am doing as I please.

Skruske has completed 4 miles of Border Wall so far and hopes to get more done when the Cattle Cars unload more "volunteer" help.
KFishman, you need to retire NOW and go see the things you want to see out there, or do you want to stroke out first and never get to go? Money? You can't take it with you.
Damcows and Otis the Cat are waiting on breakfast.

Dang, I knew Skruske was on some kind of secret mission for the President down there in Arizona. And now I know what it is. :D I bet all the Border Patrol had to do to get all that free labor was scatter a piece or two of fired brass every few hundred feet. Most of us have seen Scott in that T-shirt that says Will Work for Brass.

JR, I'm thinking if you'd go down there and fly your Confederate flag, it might confuse the Messicans and they'd quit trying to come across because they wouldn't know what country they were entering. Of course the way you cuddle up to Messican waitresses, I think you'd just better stay away from the border altogether.;) If Judy Brown ever learns about some of your peccadillos, there won't be a border problem any longer, cause she'll shut it down all by herself. Ha!

As for the stroke, I already had one of those back in 2014. No permanent damage except to my UBR scores. I've tried to get Danny Hensley to give me some handicap points, like in golf, but he just growls, "Get the hell out of here, Jones, it wouldn't be near enough to help you." :D

Well good afternoon now.....back at the shop after going to Nobelsville this morning to look at a job that will be here on Monday or Tuesday...new floor in a dump truck bed. Just so happens its just down the road from Cabela's so I stopped in and picked up a box of bullets and some 205m primers and a .700 rail riser for my AR. As I was headed toward the check out I detoured into the coyote section and walked out with a dozen premade snares.....all these strangled coyotes Jr been posting put a bug in me to give it a try.:D

Trail cams at the compost behind the hogbarns show they been running in there between 8pm and 6 am for the most part. Going to see if there is a trail there we can set a snare on.


Hope everyone has a good day!
