A beautiful sunny day already in Caldogna Italy heading to the mid 70s today.
And.
This is Blast Off day and I say my farewells to Italy. I walked down to the ice cream parlor yesterday afternoon and had my last Gellato of my lifetime.
This is indeed a beautiful Country and we have seen a lot of it, but I am not planning on ever being back here. Judy Brown? Who knows bout her, she's got another trip to somewhere at Christmas.
The train system here is remarkable and when you get it figured out, it is easy to navigate. The country is full of buildings 500 years old....1000 years old if you look a bit....Roman ruins are scattered all over the country.

I hope My family here escapes sometime next year and returns to the USA. 3 1/2 years is a long sentence to be in a foreign country.

I'm ready to head home to the USA and see some FatAss Wimmen at Wal-Mart, Ready to see my Damcows, my 2 Orange Tomcats, and my AR 15.
Outta here and George Foster will resume his duties. JR in Italy

I have thoroughly enjoyed JR starting the morning thread, his posts are a lot more interesting than mine.

39° here in Upstate NY this morning, the high today is to get up to about 49° they say. Of course we are to get rain again today and probably tomorrow also.

Yesterday morning I had a chance so I went up and checked for any problems at the gun club and that was a mistake. We have pipe frames that we hang steel gongs on and someone had completely broke the elbow and top cross pipe on one. Luckily we had a spare frame that I was able to setup and put the gong on. Why people can't be more careful or at least tell someone if something gets broke is beyond me.

Today I will be back on the road for the majority of the day.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Tuesday Morning

42 here this morning. Yesterday was beautiful and got up to 64 the little granddaughter came over for a visit and I got a picture of her sleeping. I swear she is the happiest little baby I have ever seen.

Thanks to JR for taking us along on his Italian adventure. Glad you’re finally coming back home where we need you.

Running late this morning so I’m grabbing a cup of coffee and hitting the road.

Good morning, Jr glad you are doing well and coming home to the cats and cows.
35, clear with a bright moon this morning. A little warmer today and less wind.
Need to run over to Mankato this morning for the printer and drivers test.
Working on cleaning up the basement, I found my powder horns finally and I found the keys to the gun safe. Here I thought they had gotten tossed in the trash.
Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

morning all. 30 here with some moisture coming... I hope. High 50s for today.
Safe travels for JR. Probably already in the air.
Off to town this afternoon for a blood draw, can't think of anything else I need there.
Didn't get to the balers yesterday, boss man wanted me to hang some new gates, the old ones' were to light and got all bent up and knocked off the hinges. Turned into a all day deal. Had to sort calves to move into the pens where the new gates were hung. Then the damcows got in with the neighbors and had to get them all in and sort them. Finally got done with all that by 4:30 so we called it a day.
Time to move along again. Have a great day.
GOD BLESS. Dean

good morning folks. It's 43º here with a sunny day on the way, I think. It's been a weird October. Half was July like, the other have more like November. At least I'm not swatting skeeters in the tree stand anymore, but the wind we've had has been brutal. I don't know how Dean stands it? Looking like the weekend is going to be the same...cold and windy, with big rain coming for Saturday. Trying to decide if I should drag the boat 4 hours to maybe get to fish one day??? Probably not going to happen. Of course, if I don't take it, the weather will be beautiful.

It's HUMP day for me already. Have off Thurs and Fri. Have a good one!

Great morning folks,

Despite a rain advisory, we have a clear sky with 41° here near Halfway USA. Winds will increase through the day and the high is only expected to reach 48°.

I installed a couple batteries in the 5th wheel. Those hold at a solid 13.2 volts & the old ones were only at 12.1. I still have an extra battery to figure out what it needs to do.

I power washed the Redneck Limo & that took a long time to get all that Wyoming mud/concrete out from under it. Then it took a while to wash the driveway. :rolleyes: Since everything was out, I took care of DD's car too. It shined up nicely.

Of note for this vicinity. The Maple trees still have most of their leaves and have only just begun changing color. Last year at this time DD & I had raked 3 times already.

It is getting around to that time of year. I have a news letter to put together leading into November.

Safe travels to Miss Judy & JR. Hope he don't get diverted into some other foreign country where they may not be so understanding. :D

Good morning all. 41 in Indy heading for 59. Got around to cleaning the Valkyrie yesterday. Not too bad. Got new rubber on the F150 yesterday. Only $765! 😳

Little breakfast, little golf, Dr visit on the calendar today. Looking forward to most of that.

Have a good day.

Good morning, GoGo. It's 41 in Louisville, going to 65. Should be a pretty fall day.

I'm ready to head home to the USA and see some FatAss Wimmen at Wal-Mart, Ready to see my Damcows, my 2 Orange Tomcats, and my AR 15.
Now that right there is funny, JR, but you forgot to list your pseudodamgrandkid. You probably haven't been following the news while there in Italy, but you're arriving home just in time to help President Trump figure out how to handle the 10,000 wannabe invaders headed north in Mexico toward the United States. The radio man this morning said there are few families in this group, it's mostly working-age men. That age group also happens to describe fighting-age men, and the news says there are at least a few Middle Eastern folks mixed in with the Hondurans.

From my point of view it's hard to see this as anything other than an intentional planned invasion. What else would you call it? My solution is to activate enough Air National Guard units to fly the whole Caravan to Chicago. Why Chicago? Well, I bet you can figure that out.

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

42 on the way to 68 here in the far reaches of Northern California.

The dogs had a quiet night, no lion scent last night. I appreciate the input from Doug and Charlie reguarding the lion. Charlie, I never thought about the lion having a tracking collar on it! If it did, once it was removed it could be attached under one of the state vehicles in Sacramento. I can see the headlines now “Cat runs wild in downtown Sacramento”.

Range day for me. Need to be sure the .257Wby is still shooting straight. I will be heading to Wyoming next month for a Whitetail Hunt. I also have some test loads for the .222 I need to shoot.

Have a great day and be careful out there.

Jr, I'm sure glad you and my girlfriend got back in tha country.
I'll bet the Bouncer cat will be glad to see ya.

The border issue would become a nonproblem if handled
by placing a few MINI-GUNS at the crossings. The invaders
would get the idea pretty quickly. LDS

Vette the boarder crossers and put the good ones in the military. Hispanic infantry unit. 2 years minimum.
If that was a requirement to work, might make them think twice. Although, that would probably be better conditions than they came from.

Better conditions?? You bet, hands down and slam dunk.
That reminds me of Sonny Liston when he was in prison ... in Mississippi? The prisoners rioted bc of conditions and food quality.
He thought it was pretty good....!
Everything is relative.

A quick hello to my green board friends, we arrived back at JFK in NYC yesterday afternoon as you factor in the time change it makes a quick trip.
It took 2 hours to clear the very long Customs lines and we almost missed our connecting flight to Cincy. Some folks did miss their planes due to gross inefficiencies in the U S Customs dept..

I got the wood stove fired up about midnight and it really feels good in here but I gotta run. No telling what Dean and My Damcow have done. Electric fences will of course be shorted out.

LDS, next time you see Judy Brown, ask her about getting detained by Itialian Authorities for trying to smuggle 3 Daggers on the Airplane.
Bouncer the Tomcat is fine and glad to see us, hope to see Otis the Damcat after lunch. Y'all scaring me talking bout those tires and batteries. Tires for the Geo need new fronts and I expect them to cost me about $100 total....batteries are cheap at Rural King folks..
Charlie I saw a bunch of fishing boats over Italy have you been fishing there last week?

And I did indeed keep up with the US news and saw the Nicagraguans walking up the highway.
Right before they board the Trucks and Busses paid for by George Soros....anyone think they can walk 1000 miles to the USA border.?

Off to check cows.
