25° here in Upstate NY this morning with the high going up to about 33° today. We have a little dusting of snow on the ground. Tonight we are to get some snow, they say we may get about 3" by tomorrow morning.

Today will be church this morning and then take life easy the rest of the day. Yesterday afternoon I helped a friend move some furniture for a few hours, other than that it was a quiet day.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Sunday morning

29 here in NC Ohio with prediction of 1 - 3 of snow. Hope Dean got plenty in the mountains. I'm thankful the Lord spared me for another day and its time to see what He has in store for me today. Be safe and Prayers to those and country. Mike

Good morning from Bartonville Texas, it's 37 with light rain. It rained all day and all night. Supposed to clear off and get cold.
Church this morning, we're going to try a different church, wife says so.
I searched for a gunshow yesterday and took off, only to find out that Google was lying to me. Spent the rest of the day with wife and my cat.
Hope everyone has a blessed Lord's day,
Ken

Good morning, GoGo. It's 36 in Louisville and supposed to drop to around freezing during the day. We have rain south of us and snow just northwest of us. The highway guys have already put a little brine down, so I'm not concerned. Heck, I have enough MREs (aka Damcowfarmer Chow) to get me through to early summer if it should ever get that bad. :D

Went to a small gun show here in Louisville yesterday. Found a used Sig "arm brace" for an AR at a decent price, and a couple other small items. The highlight of the show was a knifesmith from Lily, which is in Eastern Kentucky. He made his own blades, scabbards and scales. His handles included some of the prettiest resin-stabilized wood that I've ever seen. Really beautiful work.

Right across from this Rembrandt of a knifemaker were about 8-10 tables filled with knives that must have come from Pakistan or some place with even cheaper labor. You could look at the mass-produced steel and tell what it was, but what threw me was the variety and quality of the wood scales. The appearance was pretty darned good, actually excellent since most of these knives had price tags in the $40 range. The only way they could conceivably be selling them for that is if their labor cost is almost nothing. The folks working the booth had an accent, but I couldn't tell what it was. I decided not to insult them by asking where the knives were made. I've started monkeying around with learning how to put nice scales on small fixed-blade skinners, so what this told me is that I need to plan on just giving my knives away as gifts.

Sorry for the rambling. Y'all have a great day and be safe out there.

morning all. 32 and snowing! Not sure if the mountains got much yesterday but I hope they are this morning.
Gunshow yesterday was good, didn't seem to be as many tables as usual but still nice. Didn't find anything calling my name but had a good day away from the farm.
Off to check cows and do chores, not sure if we'll make first service at church or not, lots to do before going to town.
Better get at it I guess. Have a blessed Lords' day and give Him praise and thanks for everything. Remember those in need of prayer too.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Well the snow didn't last long, almost got the ground white, sun shining now, with a few flakes in the air, guess there is still a chance of more.

Good Morning

33 and calling for a little rain and snow later today.
After I got back home yesterday morning I spent most of the day with either a chainsaw or splitting maul in my hand. Luckily, one of my sons showed up and I got a lot more done than I had expected. Getting ready to go out and split some more before the weather rolls in.
Mike, the last time I was at the big show in Louisville, I was with my older son who is somewhat of a knife enthusiast. There was a guy there selling Randall Knives. I had always heard of them but I don’t think I had actually seen one. We stopped and talked to him for awhile and I still haven’t recovered from the sticker shock. Definitely something I wouldn’t buy for myself but I’m thinking that would be a good gift for Tyler.
Make it a good day. Prayers offered for those in need and those traveling today.

Edit: I just saw the picture of your granddaughter JR. She’s a keeper for sure.

Morning Gents! Its 42º here and raining. It moved in during the night but is forecast to be gone about noon. 42º is probably the high for the day with a cool down coming. After breakfast I guess I'll start turning off electrical circuits in the kitchen and moving dishes. The contractor came by Friday afternoon to look and plans to start on the kitchen tomorrow. Oh Boy!!!!

J, thats a sweet looking little girl! Your post about farm life are interesting. I know they are far from easy.

You'all have a good one.

Good morning everyone....at the shop this morning for some damn reason. I got a few parts to weld and got some help coming to start cutting apart the stone box.

Discovered that I need to pull the vacuum pump/power steering assembly off my dodge and reseal it as I seen it dripping yesterday. The guy I got it from thought it was the front cover seal but it looks dry. You tube showed the fix and looks simple enough.

I found that I had snared a **** yesterday at the hog barns and that thing had got a hold of a branch and climbed up about 4 ft and hung himself and twisted my snared around said branch about 200 times it seemed. Finally got him cut down and tossed the snare as it was trashed. Good thing I bought 5 doz. for as cheap as they was I ain't messing with making them or trying to repair them.

Good looking Grandbaby there Jr!

Hope everyone has a good day!

38º with light rain in the hollow. Bout as warm as it's gonna get today we're told. Spent yesterday at Two Brothers Rifle Range for our last UBR match there. Barring something unforeseen, next moth will be at Dry Branch. It was cloudy and cool all day, but everyone wanted to be out of the house burning powder, so it went pretty well. But it was a long day and I still have a lot to unload, so I'm moving slow. First of the week looks to be somewhat cold, but by the W/E we should be back to seasonal.

Loved the pic JR, her eyes remind me of my newest grandson. But I don't have a current pic to share so I won't try and steal the spot light.

G'day Y'all,
Rick

Great morning folks,

About 60° & clear with about 80° & clear later out in the dirt & rocks east of Yuma.

There was a lot to look at yesterday at the car show. Lots of cars too. WWJRD ;). Lots of imagination and unique rides. I am looking forward to doing some restoration work on my old Ranchero this spring.

DD is much better and was able to walk for a couple hours before finding a.shady spot to sit. She is getting a massage this morning & that should get her back to 99%.

I may hit the flea market while she is occupied.

Good morning folks. It's 35° on the back porch this morning. I just got up. Had a long, busy night at the gun bingo. It started an hour later than I was told :rolleyes: so I was there an hour early and it didn't end until 10:30 PM. It was 12:30 AM when I pulled in the garage. Went pretty well, but gun winners couldn't decide what they wanted. One chick changed her mind twice. The first time was right before I gave the fire dept the bill. The second time was not 5 minutes later, after I did give them the bill. Tight titty, sorry too late. This crap always happens at the end when I'm just trying to get the hell home. Hope I didn't F up the bill in all the confusion.

We have snow on the way. I guess another 3-7" maybe. Need to get up and get moving. Have to take the granddaughter home before the snow. Have a good one.

Sunday

Well it sure isn't morning so good afternoon all. Did my usual Sunday morning chores. Yiayia's House of Pancakes and Rural King. Stocked up on necessary stuff. Mini Moon Pies, jerky, and some strawberry energy bars. Stopped by the Ford dealer out of curiosity because I heard the new Rangers were in stock. Sunday is the only day you can look without being attacked. Thought they might be bigger than the previous Ranger but I don't think so. There were two on the lot. Both were 4x4 crew cabs, 2.3 ecoboost 4 cylinder, and just over $46K. They had a bed about the size of two orange crates. Then I came home and took a nap. Trying to recover from the vacation.

Been snowing for a while. We might have an inch. Cold for the next few days.

Later amigos and amigas.
