68° here in Upstate NY this morning with a 70% chance of rain today. The high will be in the 80's. It was a hot humid one yesterday but it didn't bother me much on the river. Today I will be on the road all day.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Morning

Morning all green boarders, its 69 with 50% chance of rain. Last two days have been too hot and muggy for this old boy that's round and low to the ground. Should be better today for garden construction and just regular life. Prayers to those and country. Mike

Good morning from Indy. Radar says our grass is getting watered. Storm warnings around. Julie has the day off and so do I. 😳 Time to hit the breakfast blind and see what game shows up.

Have a good day

morning all. 57 after a night of wind! Mid 80s later with chance of showers.
Worked on sprinklers yesterday morning, then helped the neighbor bale a small field, my baler broke down again but have the parts to fix it this morning. Still one sprinkler that needs more work.:eek: Really looking forward to when we can shut them all off!
Time to move along, have a great day. Remember the prayer requests.
GOD BLESS. Dean

good morning folks from foggy southcentral PA. It's 69º here headed to upper 80's with high humidity. Yuck. Back to the office today and the work is piled up. Just what I figured. :( Vacations are great, coming back sucks. Oh well.

I did get Lillie fishing yesterday a bit. Report in Aquatic section. After that I started putting things away and was going to wash the boat, but got distracted by the neighbor. They are selling the place after my neighbor lady died about 2 months ago. He told me whatever's left over there I could have so I went looking. Scored 2 nice fiberglass stepladders, a stihl mini-tiller, a bucket of nuts/bolts, etc., pruners, a hoe, shovels, extra gas cans, a bunch of weed and feed and other assorted goodies. There's still some lumber over there to get, but I ran out of time.

Well, I better get digging into that pile on the desk. Have a good one.

Good morning, GoGo. It's 75 in Louisville, going to about 90 with a Heat Index of 99. Chance of thunderstorms today, increasing tonight and tomorrow. We need the water, but for the last 6 weeks or so it has mainly come along with damaging winds and even tornadoes. The heat's been bad, but at least we've had rain along with it.

Charlie, it sounds to me like you scored big-time from the neighbor's estate. Good on ya. As for returning to work, do you mean the company doesn't have someone doing your work while you're gone? Imagine that.

Monday's behind us, so let's dig in today and tomorrow, then we can ease up just a little on the back side of Hump Day.

Morning all,
The day started in the hollow around 70º and is already hot and going to the mid 90's. Looks like some thunder storms may roll in this PM so I need to get some grass cut early. Rode up to the new range to check on progress yesterday. Honestly, it looks pretty rough right now, but when you're moving dirt things tend to look that way. There is no need to slick thing up until it's mostly in place. Due to a low place near 200 meters, we are going to need to move quite a bit of dirt back before the 100 meter line to get clearance for the 200 meter berm. This will be done partly by lowering a hump near 100 and raising the firing line, which was something we had intended anyway. The overall effect will be to reduce the uphill slope from 100 to 300 meters. We didn't know what we would find under the ground until we started and we hit rock on one side that is being a problem. However, a hump on the other side which we expected to be rock turned out to be a lot of dirt that we need in other places, so it's working out OK. Just taking longer than we would prefer and costing more. But extra time and expense was expected from the beginning, so it's not a shock. We still hope to be using the range sometime this fall and it will be a very nice facility when it's done.

G'day Y'all,
Rick
