59° here in Upstate NY this morning, it is going to be another nice day they say. The high temperature will be about 70° today and that is just about right. They say for Friday thru Monday of next week we are going to see 90° to 100° temperatures.

Very busy day yesterday with most of it on the road starting in about 8:00AM. I got home about 5:00PM and then worked on a computer here for another hour or so. Today it will be a little easier.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Nearly great morning,

Overcast, thunderstorms around us and it's 64° here near Halfway USA. We may get a peek at the sun later this afternoon. We could use a little rain.

The news from the meeting with financial guy is I can stay retired until I'm about 102 years old. Then I may need a part time job to make ends meet. :D

I spent the afternoon washing and laying a coat of wax on the Redneck Limo. Then it was backed into the barn for paint & rust proofing on the bottom side. The paint that was needed got done but the rust proofing is only half done. I need more spray. So far so good.

The hitch for Deb's Ford Edge arrived. She has watch a youtube video & is ready to try installing it herself. I'll be helping & supervising. That will get done after the truck is finished.

A couple errands this morning while it's raining.

Read a good one yesterday: "You can shear a sheep often. You can only skin it once". It was part of a discussion about saving for retirement and saving for your future. KYF, your thoughts? :D

Good Morning from foggy Waseca, 67 now, high of 77 and mostly cloudy.
Need to keep working on the basement and building shelves, one to build and one to hang then I should be finished. Yet, there is 40 more boxes to unpack.
We were going camping with my daughter and her family this weekend, that is till she decided to have a baby. It's early by a couple of weeks so lots of doctors and hospital time is involved. Don't yet know when they will take the baby.

Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

morning all. 46 here with 89 for this afternoon with a 30mph breeze :eek:
Another forest fire south of us, smoke could be seen billowing up over a mountain. It's north of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Sprinkler work yesterday, then went to town for some banking business, after lunch. Really didn't get much done after that.
Time to move along. Have a Happy Hump Day. and be safe out there.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Happy Hump Day varmints! It's 67º here and looks like it might rain. But if it doesn't...:D



I got home last night to find a package from Amazon. My stern eyes (little SS U-bolts for the back end of the boat) were in. I broke one the other week and bought 2 just in case. Well...whoever designed those little packages of sealant needs shot. You know..the ones that are about the size of a medium toothpaste tube? You buy a tube because you need just a dab, screw the cap back on and 6 months later, you need it again? Only trouble is, the freakin' end is hard/cured and nothing comes out? :mad: I even had it vacuum sealed this time, because this crap I use is expensive! Nope. I ran a screw in and out and had it opened up but only got a dribble. Said F-it and grabbed the utility knife and a popsicle stick. THAT did it! Just wasted about $10 when I threw the remainder out. Why don't they make that crap in little tiny tubes, about the size of super glue tubes? Package them in 5 or 10's. That way when you need it...

But I digress. Did I mention, it's HUMP DAY? Have a good one gang.

Charlie they even make SuperGlue in single serving tubelets. ;) 4 or 5 per package at the Dollar Store. Open it, use what you need & toss the remainder in the trash. I keep packages of it in all the vehicles, trailers, RZR & first aid kits.

Good morning, GoGo. It's a humid but pleasant 69 in Louisville, raining, going to 83, and then the heat returns. The big news is that we had one whale of a storm front come through yesterday from 1:30 - 2:00 with steady winds rising to 40mph and many, many gusts hitting 60, maybe 70. Just south of here a friend of mine reported pine trees snapped off not at ground level, but about 30 feet up. Miss Cindy lost a few branches off her big sunflowers, but that was about the only damage at my place.

The hitch for Deb's Ford Edge arrived. She has watch a youtube video & is ready to try installing it herself. I'll be helping & supervising. That will get done after the truck is finished.

Scott, regarding Deb installing the trailer hitch, she might want to call and talk to Miss Cindy. We installed one on my old 2003 Ford Escape and Cindy wanted to help. So, since she's considerably thinner than the Carpman, I sent her under the car to attach a 12v wire from the front to the back. Where I messed up was connecting the wire to the battery a little early. I did have sense enough to cut the wire flat on the end she was pulling, so it was fully covered by insulation, except for the very tip, of course. So, Cindy did pretty good for a white, pulling the wire along and attaching it to the frame with cable ties. Then I heard a pop and a small yelp, followed by the smell of ozone. Yep, she managed to get the very tip of that wire close to a clean spot of metal on the frame. She came flying out from under that car like a dang angry yellowjacket coming out of the ground. My fault, I admit, I shouldn't have put power to the wire until it was in place. The rest of the installation went fine and the hitch worked fine for many years, as did the trailer wiring.

As for the retirement advice, I certainly wish I'd started "shearing my sheep" earlier than I did. I've heard that same analogy used when it comes to taxing the working class.

Y'all have a good'n and be safe out there. I'm taking a friend to donate blood with me this afternoon and I'm real excited. She's given before, but not for many years. It's one of my favorite charitable activities and if you've never donated, I'd be proud to talk you through the process and answer your questions.

Heard that one many years ago from a friend who runs a reloading supplies shop. I has asked him why he didn't charge more for his stuff and that was his reply. He is only a little higher than the online stores and could probably get more until folks like me discover that they can buy from Midway etc.

Woke up to thunder boomers a little after 5:00AM and when I decided to go ahead and get up, found that the power was gone. No big problem as the stove is gas, so coffee got made same as always. Power returned a little after 8:00. Going to be warm for the next week or so with the heat index over 100º. No worries. I'll cut the grass in the evening and spend most of the day indoors. My work van still has some AC, but it's fading and will need to be completely replaced. My mechanic says I can buy the complete kit online and he will install it. Will save me something over $500.

Stay cool, G'day Y'all,
Rick
