48° here in Upstate NY this morning under overcast skies, the high temperature for today will be up to about 70°. It will be turning off sunny with a 8 to 13mph wind. There is no rain forecast for today.

I got "Up Home" yesterday morning and fished for a few hours, I caught and released four bass, three about 9 or inchers and one nice 16". Today we will go to church this morning and then take life easy. Prayers for all that need them.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good morning, GoGo. At 1055 it's 66 in Louisville, sunny and only going to 76. Gorgeous day to do most anything outdoors.

The birds are fed and I have a cured pork loin on the smoker. It's been soaking up a mixture of Morton Tender Quick and brown sugar for 10-12 days in my garage fridge. It smokes for 5-6 hours, then I bump the temp up and bring the internal temp to 145. After cooling, I wrap the loin in Saran and let it rest back in the fridge for two days. This lets the moisture equalize and, more importantly, lets the smoke flavor penetrate deep into the meat. Then freeze it for 3-4 hours, slice it thin as paper and vacuum pack in 1# packs.

Down here, old-timers sometimes call 'em "that ol' brown fish," George. There's nothing like catching smallies in fast water on light tackle. Glad you had a good first trip this year.

We will be driving separate as she want to take her Bronco to sunny Florida & ride around with her top down...I'm pretty sure she meant the top on the Bronco.
I don't know, Scott. Debra has been exposed to Judy Brown a lot lately, which undoubtedly will stoke the fires of whatever wild streak DD already has. Can you see those two in a Florida beach town with that top down? Look out! Ha!

When you find yourself in Murdo, go to the Drive In. Best burger I’ve ever had. Prairie Pizza is good too but it’s not open this weekend.
Doug, I couldn't picture a drive-in in Murdo, so I fired up Google Earth. I've been to Murdo numerous times, but it always startles me just a little how that place is like a step back in time at least 40-50 years. For example, this drive-in is just called Drive-In. Is this the one that has great burgers?

I know breakfast is important to you, Doug, so I'm sure you're aware of the place shown below. Good breakfasts, but be careful eating there later in the day. I'm pretty sure this is the restaurant where VolDoc ordered a side order of whole kernel corn with his meal. When he got the bill, that corn cost him something like $4. We teased him about that for years.

Y'all have a good'n, be safe, and lift up prayers for our friends here. Special prayers for the Robertses and the Kruskes as they're gonna be spending a lot of hours on the highways in the next couple of weeks.
