64° here in Upstate NY this morning, it is raining as it did all day yesterday. Not a hard rain just a steady light rain. The high today will be in the 70's. We have quite a bit of flash flooding around now, none here as of yet but if it keeps up we could have.

Be a busy day today, I have my annual eye exam this morning and this afternoon it will be on the road again.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Morning

60 this morning in NC Ohio with a small chance of rain. Need to get an oil change for the truck and then a Dr.appointment, back home for more work. Need to do some varmint control like JR but I think the coon I have is smarter than I. He manages to get out usually trashing the trap. Prayers to those and country. Mike

68* to start at the north shore of Lake Erie. We are upgrading and expanding the pistol range. I am ordering supplies today. I can't wait to start wrestling with the post hole digger. I think I know who wins when it finds a rock or root.

Good morning all. It’s 67 heading for 87 in Indy with “sun mixing with clouds”. Whatever that means. Guess they got tired of saying scattered clouds. Gonna’ try some 9mm loads with Shooters World powder today. Julie’s got a Well Armed Woman meeting tonight and she can test ‘em. Might even get her to go through the motions on the Dillon. Supervised set up of course.

Heading for the pancake blind. Have a good’n.

morning all. 47 with low to mid 80s later, still that slight chance of rain hanging out there.
Finished another field of alfalfa baling. Then tried some oat hay, but my baler wouldn't make a good bale so the boss man took his over and it worked ok. :rolleyes: Not sure what the problem is there but he was still baling at 10 last night while I was sleeping. :)
Had a break down on one of the swathers yesterday but got it fixed and ready to go for today.
I even whacked a coyote pup yesterday morning, usually wait till later in the fall but just couldn't keep my self from it. :D Three of the were running along the edge of one of our fields and I led the middle one with the 17hmr and rolled him up in a ball. Some times that little round just surprises me!
Better get around, have a great day.
GOD BLESS. Dean

good morning folks. It's 67º here with sun and some clouds. No mixing observed here yet. :rolleyes: Supposed to rain later. We are in a weird weather pattern. Storms seem to pop up out of thin air and just sit. We had 2 small storms and one big one just north of us last evening for over 3 hours. They never moved, just sat there and rumbled. I assume they dumped quite a bit of rain, but not at my place. Maybe we'll get some today?

Had a nice dinner with SRM's wife Lynne and her mom last night. Tonight I have a dinner with the folks from the gun shop. Sending off one of our girls to college. Gonna miss that one. She had a really good work ethic, and was really smart. Has a bright future.

Well, I guess I should get busy. Have a good one!

Charlie

Good morning, GoGo. It's 65 in Louisville, which is nice, but rising again to 89, so the heat continues. As someone else mentioned, those pop-up thunderstorms can be really strange this time of year. After today, I think we have a pretty good chance of thunderstorms all the way through the weekend.

I got another Monday checked off, Charlie. My money man is supposed to schedule us a meeting soon where we get to the bottom of whether I can afford to retire or not. He and the firm he works for are legal fiduciaries, which means they have to act and make recommendations in the best interest of the client, not theirs. Still, if my pay is tied to how much my clients invest, then I know which way I'd be tempted to tilt my advice. I'm really just looking to him to help me avoid having to say, "Oops, guess I didn't think of that." What's gonna save us, I think, is that Miss Cindy and I are both pretty frugal, we don't mind leftovers, and she's not as addicted to shopping as some women seem to be.

I enjoyed a nice phone chat with the Greyfox yesterday. E-mails and instant messages are convenient, but they don't take the place of a real conversation, at least for me. I need to remember that and make more of those calls myself.

Y'all have a good'n and be safe out there. Prayers up for all in need, especially Tom as he gets that hip mended and gets his strength back up to speed.

65°now with 85° later. The chance of a desert downpour passed by with three to four drops landing on the roof of the big doublewide.

Yesterday's adventures included a trip to Green River's splash park and play ground. Agility and ability testing was completed with the near fearless grandsons. Mom wrangled the 15 month old while was I kept easy watch over the energized four year old.

I put the finishing touches on the generator transfer switch. Now just waiting on a 20-30 amp adapter to give it a run test with Doug's generator.

Going shooting this morning. A friend here has a new 480 Rooger that needs to test a couple old guys. Chores to catch up to. Laundry + doublewide cleaning. DD returns this evening from 9 days in Grandkidville FL. We will be here a few more days before we make the wheels roll toward more adventure.

KF one of the unknowns in retirement are the medical expenses. Statistically the numbers are it will cost you out of pocket 200-250 K for medical.
My surprise came with the addition of a medication that now costs $1500 / month. It is not in my formulary so it is totally out of pocket. My prescriptions to that point were about $80 / month and all generic. The co-pays are killer. if you have a good pension that provided medical coverage you are in the minority. My company just dropped the life insurance and cut the pension. And there is nothing we can do about it. I made my own retirement with IRA;s and 401k"s so I am ok. A lot of my co workers re really in a bind. Just something to look out for.

Next plan is to threaten to move in with the kids. I think they will pay a ransom to keep us away.
