46° here in Upstate NY this morning, it is to be sunny this morning and then this afternoon we have rain moving in. They say between now and tomorrow morning we could get up to 2 - 3" of rain.

I was on the road for about half the day yesterday and I hope to spend time here at home today. Nothing I would like better than taking Rusty hunting today but between the rain and the paperwork it doesn't look to be happening.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Morning

Is this really Hump Day!!! It's 51 now and not going anywhere for today. Light rain for now, that should help the trencher lay in the gas line for the greenhouse. The ground is really hard from dry weather. Looks like a good morning to flush out some breakfast. Be safe and Prayers to Dean, those in need and this country. Mike

An early Good Morning from up here on the flooded northern prairie. Got a good case of the no sleep- ums this morning. Woke up at 2:30 and my mind is just racing. To many negative things going on with this damn hor$e sh¥t fall up here. On the agenda today is move the cows back to the pastures. Moved them in so it wouldn’t interfere and slow down the harvest. As wet as it is on the winter home pasture, the hoof contact is tearing it up to much to have them home for the winter. It’ll be like having on a rock pile this winter. And there’s no harvest started yet.
We have a small problem here compared to what the cattlemen in No Dakota are facing. The cattle moved into coulees to get out of the storm and got stranded in them with the heavy wet snow. With the 2-3 feet of snow some areas have its extremely difficult to get around and get to them. Now that the weather has changed and it’s starting to melt the coulies are flooding. They calves are starting to drown where they can’t get to them. They are searching for them with aircraft and using bulldozers to get to them..
There was an alert by Cattlemens Assoc. about one rancher on the radio, who had less missing about a 100 head of young stock who drifted with the storm, busted the fence down and now he can’t find them. In addition there is lots of forage out there they won’t get harvested. Deans hay has just went up in price. Sometimes one guys loss is another’s gain
As long as I’m awake I better make coffee and some breakfast and get ready ready for an early to shag cows for a couple days.
You have a safe day, what ever your doing and God Bless.

Great morning to those sleeping in, :D

48° with a light wind & more rain coming in here near Halfway USA. Odd weather event going on too. An occluded front is pushing both a warm and cold front across the state. With a low pressure system dragging moisture in from the big lakes to the west & north. That is also pulling moisture from the Gulf of Mexico leaving much needed rain across the south.

Yesterday in the morning I gave the Redneck Limo a good power washing in the bed. Got all the debris from hauling wood cleaned out. The clearance lights on the Bigfoot camper needed to be resealed so those got some fresh silicone.

In the afternoon Deb & I went to a nearby town to take a long walk. We almost got done before the rain hit. :eek: A stop by that little town's McDonald's provides sundaes to recharge our calorie count.

If the rain is going to hold off, I may get enough time to smelt down the lead that has accumulated. Hopefully we'll have fresh 3lb muffin by mid morning.

Crankin' on the Rock Chucker is the plan for the rest of the day.

Good morning from Waseca, 39,cloudy, 46 high. No rain yesterday and not supposed to today.
The plan is work around the house this morning, then go to Mankato and get new tires on the truck, just in case the weather clears up and I can make a road trip up north.
Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

Good morning all. It’s 47 in Indy and we’re only gonna’ make the low 50s. No rain in the forecast. Gonna’ be another day of hovering around the tumbler and press decapping 9 mm brass. Julie’s danger-woman group meets tonight and she’ll probably be bringing home several hundred more.

Got the annual meeting to go over my prescription plan this morning. They’ll find me the best deal. Hope I don’t need to change again.

Have a good day.

Morning Gents! Its 53º and clear here headed for the mid 60's. We had a slow rain almost all day yesterday but I have not looked at the gauge to see how much we got.

I have a MS treatment after while and thats about it for today. I'll be hooked up to an IV for 6 to 8 hours. The first one of these that I had, 6 months ago, left me pretty tired afterwards. I felt great the day after, what with all the steroids they gave me! I'll take the lap top and hang out on here and another forum or two. Probably nap a little too!

Prayers offered for those in need.

You'all have a good one.

48 with heavy wind and rain.

I had quite a pile of tree branches that had accumulated so I cut them up into firewood lengths and loaded them on the trailer. They ranged mostly from 3-6 inches so no splitting was required. Started the first fire of the year yesterday evening to take off the chill.
Looks like another busy day here at work and I just got news that we might have a project scheduled for Saturday. I’m hoping to spend some time at the reloading bench this evening and maybe try out the old rockchucker that I rescued from the scrapyard.
Make it a good day.

morning all. 22 with just 50s for a high. Weather on 'puter says light snow over in town. Haven't looked out here yet.
Lots of things got done yesterday, checked on a oil leak for the gal that works for us, her pickup went to town to get fixed. Finished up servicing the old swather. Boss man wanted the old land plane hooked up so he can spread piles of cow poop out. He's been cleaning corrals with the dump truck. Had to pull the starter off the old IH truck with the spreader on it, aka turd hearst.
Not sure what I'll get to do today but breakfast is on the table so better get.
Have a great Happy Hump Day.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Mornin boys...
Phone says its 57 here high on RUGER Mt this morning and rain.
I didn't get to sleep til after 4 this morning, dry cough that felt like I
way tring to cough up my butthole...lol
Me and Tucker got to go hunting yesterday evening. I shot a 7 pt. at about
25 yards looking at me with a crossbow. Thought he was about 30 and had the
scopes back focus set to shoot without my glasses...yep, had my glasses on when
he came in and I couldn't see the rings too well. Between all that, I hit him below
his right eye. He fell on the spot. First one with a crossbow and was a easy drag to
the truck. I'll send My Fish or Charlie a pic when I get out where I got enough signal.
You all have a gooden today and GOD Bless...

happy HUMP day folks. We're half way there.



It's 61º here, believe it or not, on the warm side of the front, for now. Rain looks to be a bout 2 hours out, and will last all day. No sitting in a tree stand tonight.:( Getting tired of the gun shop gig. Last night was gorgeous, no wind, cool temps, deer were moving. I had to work. Today I don't have to work and it's going to rain. :rolleyes: Ah well, I'm not into it that much yet this year. Moon phase is off and the rut is about 3 weeks out anyway. Plenty of time left to let the air out of a big ole buck.

Well, I better get busy. Still not quite caught up from being off last week. Prayers sent. Have a good one!

Charlie

Morning all, 54 headed to 58, short trip. Been up most of the night, neuropathy pain shooting down my right leg, feels like it is on fire, and being electrocuted at the same time, loads of fun. Kermit I shot a doe 2 years ago, in the head, on purpose with a crossbow, and one this year in the neck. Both dropped at the shot. Both were under 10 yds from me. These new breeds of crossbows, are fast and quiet, I don't believe a deer can jump the string at 15 yds or closer. Got to go ship some stuff this morning, and do odds and ends with the wife today. You all have a good one, remember those in need of prayers.

HAPPY HUMP DAY, GoGo! It's 48 in Louisville and only going to 56. We were supposed to get rain overnight and that's what the radar shows, but I haven't even looked out.

Found this Hump Day meme and thought y'all might like it:



If I can make it until noon on Friday, I'm on vacation for a week. Gonna spend most of it in the Smokies relaxing and doing a whole lot of nothing.

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

Good morning old man Blog from the sticks of Kentucky where we have 46-° and cloudy. We had a wind blow thru with a splash of rain about 5am. We sure need some more but its about too late for grass to grow.
T2feathers is having Damcow problems it seems. That is a never ending cycle when you have cows.
I have our Damcows on the summer pasture again but its onlt enough for 2 weeks at most.



Judy Brown helped me run a new wire across the gap where 3 fences meet. She said she needed MPC up on the tractor to help reach the wire.
Today she is gone with a friend to a fabric store in Maysville. Why?

I have to go to the Doctor to get fussed at at 1315. He will say....Lose Weight. No Salt, No Grease, Walk 2 miles a day, Eat Skruskes gravel and nuts, if something tastes good then Spit it Out ASAP .

There Judy Brown is again, bare foot, up some where high on some precarious perch, doing some chore for JR. On top of that she looks as good or better than Bird dogs range girl he hired.
You better watch out what kind of photos of that good looking woman you put on the board. Bird dog may try to hire her and give her shoes as a bonus. You will have more problems besides the damn cows. LMAO
