45° here in Upstate NY this morning, the high temperature is going up to about 64°. Supposed to be a nice day along with the next couple.

Yesterday saw me fixing two computers and not doing to much else. Today we will be going to church this morning and then possibly I will go to the gun club this afternoon for a time. Chances are I won't do any shooting but I like to check on things once a week to make sure everything is all right.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good morning, 47 now in Iowa. Clear and mid 60's today.
We are nearly finished with the estate cleanup. House is empty and ready for the realtor. All the tools are sold, just two vehicles are not. The last two days have been brutal work wise but we have had some great volunteers without whom we could not be where we are now.
Church this morning then back to work this afternoon.
Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

Great morning folks,

43°, clear sky and low humidity here near Halfway USA. Sunshine all day with a high of 70° expected. Yesterday turned out really nice too.

The pumpkin harvest was fun. About 15 of us slogged through the mud caused by the heavy rain two days ago. Tossing pumpkins like a bucket brigade to load the wagons. We filled 5 wagons, 3 trucks and a trailer. It wasn't just jack-o-lanterns, we also gathered up several varieties of gourds and decorative squash as well. The Redneck Limo was filled as was the little trailer. All that stuff got hauled to Deb's dad's place then unloaded just before sunset. He lives on the highway & sells $1000 of that stuff in 3-4 weeks.





Today's adventure is more wood splitting. We are hauling the equipment up to the flood house to help out. All this physical activity is whipping Debra Dearest & I into shape.

morning all. 39 to start, headed into the mid 70s again.
Hope the hay gets dry today, will probably need raked and left to dry then baled later today or tomorrow.
Worked around home yesterday, got a new stove pipe installed, now we can warm the house up :). About all that got done, checked the hay several times, tried to fix my MILs' garage door opener, but I think a power bump has fried it, just can't get it programed to raise of lower.
Off to church and wally world then not sure what will happen this afternoon, would like to shoot but probably end up working.
Have a blessed Lords' day and remember those in need of prayer and our country.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Good morning folks. It's 57° here with light rain and showers possible all day. We all gathered at the local distillery last evening for dinner. First we've all been together since Christmas. Had a nice time and great food and spirits. Slept in a bit today. Need to gather my range stuff and bore sight Tyler's rifle. I guess we'll run up to the range on the mountain to stretch the new rifle out to 800 maybe. Might have to see if I have anything loaded and take one of my rifles along. He also wants to shoot his HK VP9 he got for Christmas. Guess I'll bring a bucket of 9mm too.

Better get some coffee in me and get moving. Have a good one.

Charlie

Good Sunday Morning

Looks like folks are having fun and staying busy. Thanks to all for sharing their pictures.

Had a great evening yesterday. My older son and his wife went out to celebrate their first anniversary so we got to keep the little one a few hours. She is two months old today and I have never seen a baby laugh so much.

Found myself in the reloading office loading up 223’s yesterday afternoon. I have a partial jug of H322 that is at least 15 years old. Gonna try some of it out today and make sure it’s OK.

Getting together a little later with my parents and my sisters to celebrate Mom’s birthday which is tomorrow.

Overcast with a high of only 69 today. Looks like my favorite time of year may finally be here.

Good Rainy morning from the sticks of Kentucky.
I am ON VACATION for yesterday and today, but I still got a load of 3 year old wood out of the barn and stacked it on the porch to be first in line for the wood stove. At the Temperatures y'all talking bout it won't be long before there's smoke going up the chimney here.

Skruske has rode in on a load of Punkins, I bet he drove the truck and DD did all the work. Maybe i need to plant an acre of them, but everyone would expect me to GIVE them one. I like home made punkin pie but only if its does NOT come out of a can.

I still have a lot of wood cutting to go, and I guess a little rain won't stand in the way.

Sunday

Good morning all. It's 58 in Indy heading for 76. Might get a little rain over night because I'm supposed to play golf tomorrow morning. Went by the Rural King after breakfast this morning. Picked up some household cleaners and their last jar of Peach Jalapeno jam. It's pretty darned good and I think the shelf-life beats an MRE. Spent a little time shooting the breeze at the gun counter and watched a guy drool all over a Springfield M1A. He wanted to know if they had 40 round magazines and how much the ammo cost. I appreciated the fact that he checked the chamber even after the employee had visually checked and stuck his finger in it. Not what you usually see from a gun store window shopper. No interesting events in the grocery aisle!

Sad, sad event in Zionsville, a small town NW of Indy. Man killed his two teenage kids and then killed himself. Hard to understand suicide but, killing your kids is off the charts crazy.

Still wrestling with the idea of buying a .224 Valkyrie upper but the NO side is gaining ground.

Have a good day.

Upper 60's and drizzling rain in the hollow. From the forecast it looks like the 90's may be gone for this year and I'm good with that. Spent yesterday at a UBR match, but even though it was my birthday they didn't let me win. Not a good day for such. I have a Cooper that I've spent a ton on and it will not shoot at all. Then, my Modified Remington 7ss chambered in 6 Beggs has shown me it's time for a new barrel. It's been a great one, but all that blue after two relays says it's done.

Might see some family later today, hopefully my new grandson. I hope I live ling enough to corrupt him, but my son can probably handle that as well.

G'day Y'all,
Rick

Beautiful pix! Really puts the feeling of fall to the season, huh?:)
