34° here in Upstate NY this morning, it is to go up to about 48° for a high temperature and be a decent day. We of course had some rain again yesterday and this next week it looks as if some is predicted for each day.

I took life easy yesterday, I got some gun club business taken care of and I also worked on the family genealogy. Today it will be church this morning and then I don't know right now what I will do the rest of the day.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Great morning folks,

35° with rain on the way here near Halfway USA.

Did most of you fall off your clock this morning? From the looks of a few of them, I ignored time & went with "time to wake up & start another adventure".

The last of the electrical was done yesterday. I cleared away another wire that was cut off - not hot this time. Added another switch & two recesses lights at the fireplace. A couple outlet boxes had to be replaced & doubled up an outlet where Deb's electronics get charged. Just before dinner DD & I headed to Menards to rent a drywall lift. It is a pretty cool tool. It will certainly save a trip to the chiropractor. 3/4 of the ceiling got done by last night by 10pm. I should have the rest completed by 10am or so. Menards is really cheap for the rental. $12 for 4 hours, $1.50 there after & they don't charge for those hours when the store is closed. Couple that with time change & it will only cost about $20 for it's use.

Drywall on the walls will be next. Tape & mud slinging following. DD is looking forward to doing that as she learned that skill at the flood house. Sanding in a day or so.

Saving daylight

Good morning daylight savers or not. Every clock that wouldn't change automatically get reset when we went to bed last night at 10, or 11, or whatever time it was. My internal clock didn't reset so here I am feeling like it 6:30 when it's officially 5:30. Guess we're saving that daylight for some other time 'cause we sure don't have any now. It's 46 in Indy heading for 59 with rain this afternoon/evening. I'm not sure what's going on after the usual Sunday routine. I'll just stick around and see what happens. Maybe a trip to Cabelas will fix everything. I do need a couple shell holders and there's a Duluth Trading store right there, too. Don't need anything from Duluth Trading unless it's on sale but I like their stuff.

Grandson's high school band won the contest they went to in Cincy yesterday. His 8 yr old sister was auditioning for a solo dance part in the next recital. The dance school is about a mile from us so she brought her mom and dad here while she changed costumes and her mom redid her hair and makeup. Holy cow! She's good but I prefer her in a softball uniform! She did her 2nd audition then they all hit the road for Cincy to see the finals in the band contest.

Guess I'll get on with the day. Have a good'n.

Good morning, 36 and raining in the Gopher state. Not going to be a great day. Church this morning and see what happens after that.
I set the clock back in the afternoon, that way bedtime seems to be on time. Still awake earlier this morning but that's OK.
Hope everyone has a blessed day. Ken

morning all. 22 with mid 40s again today.
Woke up yesterday to a mini blizzard, was over before daylite.
Long day yesterday, elk hunting was kinda wild. Think the snow storm kept the elk down on the hay fields longer than usual. Don't know how many got killed total but we worked till nine last night skinning and hanging six bulls and two nice muley bucks. Have three more bull tags and one deer tag to fill. Hope to get done today, we'll see how it all plays out soon.
Time change sucks, always comes in elk season, just makes it hard to get adjusted.
Boss man and kid crew got the last of the damcows home from summer pasture yesterday, finally.
Better get around, think the sun might not have change it's clock so better be set up for elk before light.
Have a blessed Lords' day and pray for our country!
GOD BLESS. Dean

Good morning from the tree in MD. It's a beautiful 32° here with sunshine and no wind. Going to be a gorgeous day. Little late this morning getting to the tree. Was out until midnight at the gun bingo. Then 4:30 was hard to get up. On the way I had to stop and put down a deer hit by a car. Poor thing. Hate to see them suffer. Bungled around getting up my tree and sweated up. Little chilly as I dry out. I must stink because I spooked some deer in the dark. Saw a few feeding in the distance. No horns yet. Maybe a buck will come check things out? Gonna hunt until 9 or so then get on my way. Lots to do today.

Have a good pne.

Good morning, GoGo. It's 47 in Louisville, going to 64. Rain is called for sometime in the afternoon, but looking at the front on radar, I don't think it'll be here until after dinner. Moving pretty slow it seems to me.

Dean, your elk success has me both jealous and upset. Here in Kentucky, hunters bought lottery tickets and such from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for probably 20 years, with the profits going toward one day bringing elk back to our state. We finally started bringing elk in from 1997 to 2002 and they really thrived. We now have the largest herd east of the Mississippi and have been holding a lottery for permits for at least 15 years or so, run by our fish and game department of course. The biggest problem is there is plenty of politics involved and political corruption is well established in our state. I dutifully paid and entered the lottery for 10-12 years, but quit doing so a few years ago when I decided it just amounted to a donation. If you dig deep enough, you'll find certain families and certain counties who've been "drawn" in the lottery many, many times. In other areas you'll find entire conservation clubs whose members have bought tickets for years and no one was ever drawn. It's true that my chances of being drawn are zero if I don't pay and enter, but my heart's just not in it anymore.

Got my pop-up blind set yesterday and put out a little more corn. Looks like the deer worked over the corn that was put out last weekend, although it can be hard to tell. Lots of turkeys and squirrels in that area and they tear into the corn as well. As always, I succumbed to temptation and bought some attractor feed stuff, too. I think I got a bag of apple-scented and a bag of acorn this year. It seems to attract my money way more than it attracts deer, but I frequently play the game. Trees are at their peak color here around Louisville and I enjoyed them while out yesterday.

Y'all have a great Lord's Day and be safe out there.

Mornin boys...

Got up late this morning, I hate this time change thing.

You all have a gooden today and GOD Bless...

Sunday morning temp was 47º a bit after sunrise and looks to be around 60º on my front porch. It's currently sunny with a stiff breeze, but the weather guessers are calling for rain this afternoon. The tress are rapidly changing and the hills across the hollow and covered in yellow and reds. The color at Two Brothers Rifle Range yesterday was stunning. I do love this time of year. We finished up the UBR season in our area yesterday with the Two Brothers match. While we have appreciated the owner's generosity for the past two seasons, we are all looking forward to shooting on the new range near Dixon Springs TN. If we get some grass and gravel down in strategic places we may have a fun match before March, but that will depend on the weather and enthusiasm. For me, I'm tired. I've been shooting benchrest matches since 2002 and this is the first end of season when I'm ready to take a rest for a while. I've been directing two matches per month for the past two years and looking forward to cutting that to one. Much the same for deer season. Muzzle loader season opened yesterday and I doubt I'm make it to the woods for any of that and not all that sure about centerfire season. Did I mention I'm tired? But today looks like it's going to be a nice day, so life is good.

G'day Y'all,
Rick
