Back from another great get away. Methinks someone who likes a winter escape to Puerta Vallarta may be watching the hurricane news in Mexico rather closely. Had the usual cruise ship fun with nice ports of call, eating robustly while on board and gaming in the casino till the wee hours of morning. Already got a few offers for future cruises in the Spring that have prices that are hard to ignore. Already booked for December 8th, about 47 days from now. Now all I have to do is build up an acceptable casino war chest.

A SUNNY 65 IN THE NATIONS, JUST LIKE OCTOBER OUGHT TO BE. THE CHEROKEES ARE SMILING.

MADE A WALLY-WORLD RUN TO TAHLEQUAH FOR DOG FOOD AND OF COURSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE WHAT I WANT IN THE SIZE I WANTED. NOW I'LL HAVE TO GO OVER TO MUSKOGEE. MOST INCONVENIENT.

Hidey-ho! Looks like we may get to play golf this afternoon after all - it'll be sunny and mid to high 40's with not much wind. So it should be tolerable. This may be the last hurrah.

Enjoy your day, Gurus!

Hey guys... been a busy day. Didn't sleep well last night at all....long story. Alarm went off and my plan was to go finish the job for the former student in the next town over, but, got a call from middle daughter (works at the county road and bridge dept) saying she could send a few guys over to help move the counter tops of the cabinets I moved Saturday, so plan change, go up to the new health office building to get those moved. That took us about 45 minutes. Then off to finish the cabinets. That job took us about an hour.and on the way home I had a call from a church lady to meet them att he church to look at a project...that ended up a non-project....then father had another issue that needed dealing with. Also in attendance was the guy I'm helping with his kitchen and we decided that we could assemble cabinets this afternoon, so I went over there at 1pm to assemble cabinets and worked on them until he had to stop to teach a martial arts class he does. We'll finish those up tomorrow morning. Came home to relax and had a friend stop be with some hinges I needed and we chatted for a while.....my arse is dragging and I'm pretty sure I'll sleep tonight.

Well, I didn't get the opener installed while he was gone. The dang thing fought me tooth and nail. A job that should have taken an hour and a half ends up being a three hour job.

I am still around... sorry for being such a slum lord... still aiming to upgrade this place... just been super hectic.

Work has been an issue due to some network hardware failures.

As for the Liz Warren and the Native American thing? I did the same DNA test... and what my Mom told me was barely in alignment... She said she was English, Scottish and Dutch, with some Jewish thrown in.

Well, Ancestry.com indicated 54% Eastern European, no real surprise there, because my Dad was Polish/Russian.

The next numbers were a bit shocking... 20% Nordic, 13% Irish, and a smattering of French, Spanish and Italian. The French part makes sense, because bastet44 traced my Mom's maiden name, Deck, all the way back to a French name of Deque (or something like that).

What does this mean? Oral histories are not always accurate.

Good Morning CGs!

Mike, good luck with the interview. To answer your question yes, I got the sprinklers blown out. No, I've never considered using RV coolant and I've never heard of anyone (around here) doing that. Standard is just using compressed air to blow out the system and I haven't had a problem in 10 years now.

We have a surprise treat for the kids today. We got tickets to a live play version of Willy Wonka. It's downtown so we'll have to go to my least favorite place but at least it's on Sunday.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hidey-ho! Nice and sunny out, and it is snowing maple leaves. So I know what I'll be doing as soon as the football game is over. I am starting to wish I had planted evergreens all those years ago.

Have a good day, all!

Morning guys... Up and doing design work and material ordering this morning. Looks like another nice day here...they are calling for mid 70s, but a bit breezy.

I have to install a new garage opener at the rectory while father is away in the next town doing services there. And then some work in the shop.

Have a great day.

Afternoon gang.

It's cooler and windy here today. Temps in the low 50's.

I have a job interview on Monday in St Charles Mo.
Did you get your sprinklers blown out Matt? Have you thought about using RV antifreeze? It doesn't hurt the lawn and it is good well below freezing.

Tee let's hope the third time is a charm.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Good Morning CGs!

Not quite as chilly today but of course that can change in a minute.

Rugrat #2 somehow lost his tablet somewhere in the house. We've been looking all morning tearing each room apart. Still no luck. I told him he doesn't get a replacement so it's in his best interest to find it. Tough love, right? Maybe just personal responsibility.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Howdy! Cold and windy today, but it was tolerable and windy yesterday, so we did manage to play golf. A bit challenging, since often herds of leaves would march across the green mid-putt. One of our guys brought a leaf blower. Gonna try to play again on Tuesday, weather permitting. Meanwhile, one week until vacation.

Enjoy your day, all!

Morning guys....I'm up and ready for another fun-filled day of work. Working for Rosie, but actually will be getting paid for this, as this is for her move from one office to another. Today is more a removing stuff from one location, and moving it to another...not installing it, yet. Just getting it removed from it's current location. The most difficult part will be the counter top. I built and installed these cabinets a little over 6 years ago, but now the space is going to be converted to space for the Health dept and some office space for some program that currently is at the county hospital.

A little cooler today, but still nice for late October. 69 for a high. Church later. Have a great day guys.

Hey guys...I started early today. A former student called me on my way home yesterday asking about how to hang cabinets. Said he was trying, but, it's not as easy and straightforward as he thought it would be. "No SH!T". Well in the end he asked me if I would be able to come "help" him. I told him, it just so happened that I had some time tomorrow (today). We stopped there to look at the situation on the way home. I told him we'd be over in the morning to get going. I thought it should take most of the day. He said he had to work, but if I could/would come over he'd pay me. He said he talked to someone who quoted him $1k to hang them....."Naw, I'm thinking less than half that."

So today my help (Rosie) and I loaded the tools up and headed over to hang cabinets. Old house, crappy remodel job/add on from years ago didn't help much, but by noon we had all but one of the uppers in. Walls not plumb or square, so that presented a few issues....but nothing I hadn't seen before,just took a little longer than normal. After lunch, went back and got the base cabinets installed. He came home about the time we were finishing up and I made him decide how to fix the one problem we ran across with the upper cabinets and I helped him with the pattern for the top.

To fix the problem with the upper cabinet we encountered, I'll have to make a spacer block, stain and finish it before I can finish up that one installation.

Tomorrow, I work for Rosie. The county is having her move her office over to a different building and she needs some cabinetry moved/rearranged, so will start on that. Can't complete that job, as electricians need to come in and move some outlets/switches....looks to be another busy day.

IT'S RAINING AGAIN. THAT'S WHY THEY CALL THIS "GREEN COUNTRY": MILDEW. THE CHEROKEES ARE DISGUSTED.

MATT, I'D ALSO BE SAD TO SEE OCTOBER GO, IF WE HAD HAD ONE.

GOT A NICE LITTLE CHECK FROM MY TEXAS BANK; NICE OF THEM TO TIME IT BEFORE THE TULSA GUNSHOW :-) THIS IS A DNBFS DAY, GOING OVER TO OKMULGEE FOR SUPPER WITH #1 DAUGHTER AND FAMILY.

Success is when you look back at your
life and the memories make you smile.

Greetings! I was out picking up leaves with my riding mower yesterday afternoon, and the engine started burning oil badly- lovely. This is only the 3rd season on this engine - ridiculous. Hopefully I can limp through the rest of fall with it.

Matt, it gets worse ;-)

Have a good day, yawlz!

Good Morning CGs!

October is almost over. Which means the year is almost over. Amazing. Hard to believe.

My chore today is to blow out the sprinkler system. Don't want any water in the lines over winter or that's an expensive and time consuming repair in the spring.

Hope everyone has a great day!

That fiddysix is sounding nice. Beautiful weather here, the sun is out again! we're astounded. We've almost forgotten what it looks like. More plants to drag in tonight and tomorrow night and/or Saturday. Will be in the 30s Saturday night then back up for mid 40-s to 50s for lows after. wish I could just leave them all out.
Can't believe the week is almost over already. Hope everyone has a good day/evening

Geez Tee....that's to bad....how sorry is he? Like a new Z06 sorry? hmmm....probably not that sorry.... I think the problem is you are swinging the golf club to hard....still trying for that 300 yard drive..... puts tremendous pressure on the core..... I slowed my drives down to about 150 yards.....no problems here......

I am sorry you have to go under the knife again..... keep us posted....

Well, the dr appointment is over, but now I’m sitting in another waiting room awaiting a CT scan. Another surgery is on tap. Doc was pretty upset that his previous “fix” didn’t hold.....said he only has a 1.5 to 2% failure rate.....but I’m pretty sure he’ll be charging the insurance company for the repeat surgery. Says he’s going to have to put in a bigger mesh to cover most of the abdominal area. The surgery will be about 3 hours. The CT scan is to help guide him in his planning of the surgery. He was extremely sorry that we had to do this again and kept saying he was going to review where he failed on the last one. Trying to schedule it for after Thanksgiving, so I should be almost ‘normal’ by Christmas and be ready to get back to normal routine sometime after the first of the year.

You need to have a double shot of Wellers Special Reserve and the world will come back in focus......in the meantime do what you must to fix the cup....any measures are appropriate.......good luck to ya.....

Perfect weather here.....warm sunny....almost like real fall......not putting any of the cars away until November....... got the stock 15 x 7" wheels ordered and the wide white wall radial tires......along with the stock 56 Bel Air hubcaps to put on the fiddysix..... the wheels will work with the disc brakes...... all brand new stuff..... amazing what is available for the mid 5 cars......you could build a brand new one with all aftermarket parts including the body......it would be pricey though.....

Pics when I get them all on......the wheels have to be painted the Tropical Turquoise so the edge or the wheel above the hubcap matches the car color....... very cool.......

have a safe day Guru's....

HI Y'ALL---
SEMI-SUNNY AND COOL HERE 55 DEGREES, THAT'S ABOUT RIGHT FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. THE CHEROKEES APPROVE.

WENT OVER TO THE WHEELHOUSE FOR BREAKFAST; THEY WERE CLOSED. I'M ABOUT FED UP WITH THEIR IRREGULAR HOURS. I LIKE THE OWNERS, LIKE THE FOOD, BUT THE SPORADIC HOURS HAVE ABOUT PUT ME OFF THEM.

Hidey-ho! It's gonna be a beautiful fall day here, 68 and sunny. Perfect for golf. Sadly there is no golf on the agenda. But maybe tomorrow.

Matt, thanks for the reminder - I forgot to cancel the insurance on my Vette, will call them pronto!

Have a great day, Gurus!

Up early and now sitting awaiting my dr appointment. Been on the road for two hours, the sun was BRIGHT when it came up this morning. Good thing I had made it to the 4 lane road by then. Cool but no wind so it’s a nice fall morning.

Hope you, all, have a great Thursday.

Good Morning CGs!

Cold here this morning. The dew on the grass has become a crunchy little frost blanket. Not ready for winter yet, we didn't even have a fall. The leaves are still on all of the trees.

Speaking of frost, I need to blow out the sprinkler system and get it ready for winter. Probably tomorrow.

I mentioned yesterday that the car is tucked away at my mom's house. I have to call the insurance company today and pull the full coverage off.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I could buy several very cool cars for the price of that thing......including a real ZR1 at 120K.....then the Bentley....for 200 large......hell I can still get a Ferrari 458 and have enough left over to treat everyone to Disneyworld......thats what I would do with a spare 750K or I might buy a bunch of muscle cars..... so many choices and so little real money....
