61° here in Upstate NY this morning with the high temperature to get up to about 70°. We still have a 40% chance of rain today but it isn't bad enough to worry about. Yesterday was a decent day but chilly all day. Today will be a busy day for me.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

morning all. 40 and headed to the low to mid 80s. Calling for clear and sunny into next week. But the wind comes up every afternoon. Still dry here. But it's fall!
Worked around the shop all day yesterday, got both balers serviced and ready to go again. Amazing how fast we go thru a pallet of twine!
More hay cut yesterday and all the bales we made the day before are in a stack!
Probably make some more this morning, hope there is some dew to make good bales.
Better keep moving, prayers for those in the storms way. Glad we don't have that problem here!
GOD BLESS. Dean

Great morning,

Clear sky, light fog and 54° here near Halfway USA. Another nice day in store with a high near 77° & just a light breeze. Days like this make of for those numerous gray days...almost.

DD & I got our errand done in the morning & then after lunch went outside to get busy.

I took down a 15' Spruce tree in the front yard that was dying. Between me, the chainsaw & the Redneck Limo it went pretty easy...mostly. I cut limbs up about 6 feet then hooked up a chain & tow strap so I could pull it over with the truck. A couple tugs & the tree snapped off near the bottom. The inside was rotten. I reset the chain and in one of those "hold my beer watch this" moments, jerked on it with the truck. On the third jerk the stump popped up out of the hole into the air right toward the back of the truck :eek: It bounced about 8 feet behind and veered off to the right bouncing along side. :eek: Close call. At least it made easier work of the job. All in all it took about an hour to clean up everything.

IMMEDIATELY after the clean up Debra Dearest decided it was the proper time to move some Rose of Sharon saplings into the vacant spot. Oh well, I guess I will continue to mow a circle around that area.:rolleyes:

I have to change a brake caliper on the truck today. Perhaps we'll go for a bike ride later.

morning folks and HAPPY HUMP DAY. It's 67º here with even more rain on the way. Yesterday was mostly dry and cloudy, but it did shower in town about time I left the gun shop. Didn't rain at home. Not much going on around here except work and watching the grass grow. Might be next week before I get to mow it. Looks like Flo is turning south at landfall and going to stall before heading to Myrtle Beach and Charleston. Still not sure which way it's going to go, but it's so big. If it stalls, beaucoup troubles for millions in it's bath. Wind and flooding will be the worst and will extend way inland. Prayers on the way. Any of our board folks need to bug out, we have room up here for a few.

Tyler got kicked out of the sandbox early because of the storm. They're doing their best to get him back to Hampton VA so he doesn't miss it.:rolleyes: He's somewhere over the Atlantic now, headed to Charlotte then Norfolk. I'm proud of the kid...he sent a copy of a Letter his CO (some full bird colonel) wrote for his file. Really nice letter, praising his accomplishments and abilities. Hope he gets a stripe out of it. He also "got coined" by a 2 star general (apparently a very big deal). He's got a great future. He also sent a pic of him and some little exotic honey he's been "spending time" with over there.:cool: I'm not sure if he was sewing his wild oats or not, but I'm praying for crop failure.:p

Well, I guess I'll get busy. Have a good one.

HAPPY HUMP DAY, GoGo! It's a nice 62 in Louisville, going to 78 today. It's supposed to be cloudy, but should be a nice day. With what's coming for the Southeast coast, we've got no weather problems whatsoever.

If it stalls, beaucoup troubles for millions in it's bath.

He also sent a pic of him and some little exotic honey he's been "spending time" with over there.:cool: I'm not sure if he was sewing his wild oats or not, but I'm praying for crop failure.:p

You should be a writer, Charlie, after coming up with a hurricane phrase like "in it's bath." Probably a Freudian slip, but a very descriptive, accurate one. Oh, and drop the apostrophe, just make it "its path." Sorry, I'm a lifelong editor and I guess I'll be one until I die.

As for Tyler, the news appears all good to me. At his age and vigor, if he weren't sowing some oats, I'd be a little concerned. Would you rather he be dressing up like Rue Paul? Loved your reference to the "exotic honey"; reminded me of the old strip club signs promising "exotic dancers." Ha!

Y'all have a good'n, be safe out there, and don't try to drive through any standing water. Enough people will drown in the days ahead without any of this group adding to that number.

55 and sunny here. It must be getting to be that time of year.... I saw a flock of geese flying North this morning. They're starting to get their bearings, but it might be awhile.

Another cool morning in the hollow. About 62º at sunrise. Yesterday was much better at 54º and as we move toward the W/E the high will head back up to around 90º. But there isn't much of that left. Not sure what today will bring. I have grass to cut and need to pack up the tent we had in out front yard over the W/E. Pretty sure my wife would have left it for a very long time and would have had us sleeping out there, but it was killing the grass and the dogs were a PIA. We'll unpack it again in a month or so for a trip to one of the TN State Parks for a few days. UBR match in Newburgh IN on Saturday. We are hoping the low pressure doesn't get the wind up too much as Florence pulls it east, but everybody gets to shoot the same conditions, so it will be OK.

G'day Y'all,
Rick
