I am so very sorry Gris.....

This is our hope and our promise, which in reality is the most important thing that we have as we travel through this life......

So sorry to read about your son, Gris. The unfortunate truth is there is only so much that modern medicine can do for any of us. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Morning guys...So sorry, Gris. You are correct, Life is harsh. He has fought a good fight, but we all know that none of us get out of here alive. Just that none of us expect to outlive our children. Prayers sent to you and your family.

Fairly nice right now, 65...but headed toward the low 100s today. If I'm going to get much done, I'd better get out there pretty quick.

ANOTHER STICKY MORNING IN THE NATIONS, SUMMER IS STILL WITH US.

THE DOCTORS HAVE DECLARED THERE IS NOTHING MORE THEY CAN DO FOR SON AND ARE ESSENTIALLY SENDING HIM HOME TO DIE. HE IS ONLY SEMI-CONSCIOUS NOW.

LIFE IS HARSH

Good evening gang.

Glad your feeling better Leti. Prayers for your family Uman.

Been MIA for a while. Work has been busy and so has home life.
A couple weeks ago I self inflicted a disaster in the camper.
I accidentally blew out the black tank on the RV when I was rinsing it out. I thought the water was shut off but it wasn't. What ended up happening was the tank filled up and busted at the seems. So we've been without a potty for the last week. You all can imagine the Mrs mood was not to good about the whole situation. I finished that up today. So as long as we have the underbelly of the RV open we're going to add some preventive measures in place for winter. Heater pads for the tanks, insulated the main water pipe. We'll be adding extra insulation to help keep things warm for winter and cool for summer.

I have a good friend that lives in Colorado. Next year just might be a good time for a visit.

Afternoon all -
thank you for the well wishes on the wasp/sweatbee/horsefly attacks. Doc had me on a methlyprednisone pack all week and it immediately helped with swelling. Itching not so much. Think of 10000 skeeters biting you all at once and it never lets up for 3 days straight. No sleep and have scratched myself but with the help of yet another med from him, all is well. Miracles in chemistry. Never had anything do me that way.
been a busy last few days, worked outside Thursday at local college football field helping with installs, astro turf was very hot. I got too hot, we both did. Worked inside and outside the house Friday, tried to take off Saturday and was bothered by everyone wanting work done they sat on their hineys and put off till the last minute. they think it's up to us to fix it. And cousin in nursing home was admitted to hospital late that afternoon, send back in the middle of the night. I have visited today some, she's like a dementia patient due to the UTI (does that to old women). There are some equipped to handle that, however it's not my strongpoint. Stressed. Have a few things to do here, doc appts for foot tomorrow and hopefully be to myself that afternoon. I'd like just one whole day or a whole weekend without being pestered by something.
Tommy so very sorry to hear of your loss of your friend and those gator babies are CUTE!
Hope everyone has had a good weekend.

Slept in some this morning.....I guess everyone else has too.

Not a lot on the agenda today, maybe I'll go out to the shop and do a little work....supposed to be near 100 today and over 100 tomorrow and up to 105 on Tuesday. Upper 90s the rest of the week. So work in the shop will be early in the day all week. Yes, I have AC out in the shop, but, the heat gives me a reason to cut back some.

I need to clean up the pickup too.

I hope all of you have had a good weekend and will have a great Sunday.

SLOW DAY IN TULSA, SAM BOUGHT TWO SWORDS, I PITCHED SOME LOW BALLS BUT ONLY ONE SWUNG AND HE MISSED. I WAS HAPPY WITH THAT BECAUSE I OFFERED HIM TOO MUCH TO BEGIN WITH. CROWD WAS SPARSE BUT THEY WERE BRINGING IN STUFF TO SELL. JUST NOT STUFF I WANTED, MOSTLY CLOSET-COMMANDO ITEMS.

TOMORROW MAY BE A VERRRY LONG DAY.

Hey guys...got up and around and out to the golf course. Was invited to play in the high school league tourney. Hadn't played in five years in it. Was a pretty nice day to start, but the heat started building and the breezes dropped to nearly 0, so by the time we were finished, it was hot (96). My team got third place. Made it to church, sweaty and a few minutes late, but that's done. Sleeping in tomorrow.

Well, that was a pretty good day. We got to sis's house about 7:30 (she's on mountain time, MT is just 15 miles west of us). Before I called the power company to turn off the electricity, I did some of the preliminary stuff. Cut a big chunk od sheetrock out, above and below the existing panel. Had to cut part of a stud out as the old panel was 2" narrower than the new one. Luckily it was a 2 x 8 (old house and a cast iron drain vent precipitated the thicker wall) and I just cut back 3 1/2" (about 1/2 the stud width) was able to mount the new panel and start connecting the wires up. 3 hours and 50 minutes after getting to her house I made the call to turn the power back on. When they did, everything was good...."Thank you Lord". Stopped to eat a little something. Then patched the sheetrock back in and taped it. She had a couple other little jobs she wanted me to do....no problem. Then I started chasing the circuits that were not marked so we would have some idea which breakers controlled what....spent almost 3 hours on that.

Headed home and by the time I had the truck unloaded it was nearly 8pm (central time). I really feel good about the work I got done today.....I'm tired, but satisfied.

Maybe one of the reasons I don't have pets, I'm afraid I'd get way too attached to them. I do with the kids pets (now, we wouldn't let them have pets when they were living here)

Wasn't quite as hot today....good thing. Low 90s for highs, but light breezes made it bearable.

Neat story, Tommy. Marcus, the things we do for our kids. Looks like you're going to have to fight it again another day.

Good night folks.

GOT A SURPRISE E-MAIL FROM SAM THIS MORNING, WE HAVE A GUNSHOW THIS WEEKEND. I SCRAMBLED AROUND AND GOT UP THERE IN TIME TO GET SETUP. IT LOOKS LIKE A PRETTY ANEMIC SHOW, BUT WE SHALL SEE WHAT WE SHALL SEE.

THE TRUCK NO LONGER WANDERS ALL OVER THE ROAD; ON THE WAY TO TULSA THE WIND BLEW IT ALL OVER THE ROAD :-)

MED REPORTS ON SON SOUND OMINOUS.

Eric's wife Vanessa is a marine biologist that works in Biscayne National Park. She is a diver and monitors reef habitat and various species such as the invasive lionfish, effects of runoff, and so much more. I like all my neighbors. Good people.

Here is a post written by one of my neighbors about the other.

James Eric McDonough wrote:

"When America’s Crocodile Hunter, Mark Parry, ask you to go flying around Everglades National Park jumping out of helicopters and wrestling alligators with him, there is only one proper response, heck YEAH!!!

This is somewhat in jest, as we weren’t actually planning on wrestling any alligators (at least I wasn’t anyway). But even better we were going to open up alligator nest to monitor their egg development and check for losses due to flooding.

Come to think of it wrestling alligators may be safer than rooting around in momma gators nest. What did I sign myself up for?

Thankfully, it was late in the season and their protective instincts were greatly diminished. Of the roughly dozen nests we physically checked, only twice did the momma come to check us out. Even better news, for the baby gators, only a few were flooded, and many had hatched already. Yeah for conservation!

As a safety precaution, I always made sure to keep Mr. Parry between me and the gators. My strategy here is kind of like my swimming with sharks theory, you will be OK as long as one person in the group swims slower than you. In this case it was who could run faster, which was a question I was not sure of, so I decided it would be best would give myself an advantage through a head start. LOL

Now before anyone starts thinking it is time to call FWC to report me, I was volunteering with Mr. Parry who is a biologist for the Park. We were collecting data as part of a multi-year study on habitat suitability that has great promise to be useful in other monitoring and restoration projects both inside and outside of Everglades National Park.

The study as explained to me, during refueling and lunch stops, was fascinating and gives hope for our ability to manage sensitive habitat and critical and/or endangered species for future preservation.


In short, the hydrology and topography of the Everglades, after tampering with the flow by man, leaves some places with too much water and some places with too little. Years with either excess or shortages in rainfall negatively affect alligator nesting in different areas. In dry years only the deep sloughs have enough water, but in wet years they flood. The alligator is the most important keystone species in the Everglades and creates and maintains habitat necessary for the survival of other species.

Either condition, too wet or too dry, is detrimental for the baby alligators in some parts of the Park. What is found is that spatial distribution is highly important to their continued survival. When all the alligators were concentrated only in the slough the eggs kept flooding. Now that their distribution is wider once again many of the babies survive in other places when the slough floods. Yet, by maintaining nesting in the slough some babies survive even in the dry years when those outside of the slough don’t make it.

As a lab scientist with a biology background it is always exciting to participate in field work. And I must say it was an adventure of a lifetime. My only problem is figuring out what was more adrenaline provoking flying in the chopper or getting so close to gators.

Mr. Parry is tagged in this post, and hopefully will explain the work in greater depth for our interested reads and/or provide information in the comments.

Here in Homestead we are surrounded on two sides by national Parks, Biscayne to the east and Everglades to the west. It is highly recommended that you visit these treasures, and if given the opportunity to volunteer make sure you take it.

National Parks, America’s best idea."

Sorry for your loss Tommy.....

More rain here also yesterday...... I don't know what is going on but our yard looks amazing for the middle of August.....

In other news..... I worked most of the evening getting the doors off my daughters Wrangler. They had never been off and were getting hard to open and shut. So I got the handy dandy fixit kit that replaces the brass bushings with Nylar bushings and could not get the damn doors loose. I had a floor jack with 4 x 4's stacked on it to press up on the bottom of the door and a special tool to bang on the stuck pins in the hinges. I had a 3 or 4 lb sledge hammer and started banging away on the hinges trying to get the doors to come loose...... finally called my buddy John to come over and help me. after much work and sweat we finally got them off but damnation what a job. We got 2 doors done and will tackle the other two later on. I feel like somebody beat me today...... the ones we fixed do work prefect now though...... easy not so peasy.......

we'll catch you on the flip flop Guru's

What a person won't do for the love of their animals. Their care can be a real pain in the ass sometimes, just like with people. But oh, how we miss them when they're gone. The funny thing is the attachment people put on other beings. When they have passed on the creature doesn't give a shit but we load ourselves up with the lost love and grief. We do it to ourselves. WTF is that all about? Of course celebrations of life have helped remove some of the pain and substituted joy for having known someone or the other and having had them in your life. We are going to a celebration of life Sunday for a family friend, Marvin. He was 90 and his family has been coming to parties at our home through the years. I'm not loaded with grief but happy to have known the man. I was told he didn't really talk with a lot of people but he always talked with me. We had many good conversations through the years. Glad to have had him in my life.

Good Morning CGs!

Happy early morning to you, Tommy. Just got home from work so I'm sitting down for some dinner. You mentioned yesterday about the kids growing up fast. That's true. #1 is in 6th grade and #2 is in 4th. They both like their teachers so far. And yes, I agree it's early to start. But they also get out before June 1st. If it were up to me, they'd go to school year round. No kid needs 75 days off in the summer. Their brains turn to mush.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Our elementary - high school kids don't start until a week from today. Most of the schools, in the area, are already in session though. The local Community college, had new student orientation today (GS #2), and they start next week as well.

I'm waiting for a storm cell to get past us......raining here now and more coming it looks like..... so dark out it makes me think I want to go back to bed....... at least a nap in the big chair.......

Our acreage is so lush this year....usually I don't have to mow the areas I mow in the pasture because by now they are usually dry and the grass stops growing...... not this year..... rain is amazing.....

maybe I will sit in the big chair for a bit....... just till the storm is over..... zzzzz

Morning guys...It was a full day yesterday. Got quite a bit done on the closet expansion/remodel.The bathroom cabinets moved forward too. More work on both of those projects today.

Tommy, you are correct, I find myself slowing down, not as much energy. Your post, a few weeks back, about seeing your cardiologist, prompted me to talk to my GP the other day. And we have a stress test setup for mid-September. Nothing really showing up in any tests, but due to my family history....Dad, little brother, first cousin (moms side), uncles all passing from heart attacks and my, more or less recent, easy tiring, he thought it was a good idea.

Marcus, Central Kansas has been getting hit night after night. Us...we need rain pretty bad. We did get .20 last night and about 6" of thunder and lightening.

Letty, I hope you get the wasp issue under control.

Tomorrow, Rosie and I are headed up to my sis's place to replace the electrical panel. Her insurance company is on her case to get that done. It's a Federal Pacific and they are known to have problems. She called me about whether or not it "really needed to be done". I told her, I switched both of mine.

Well, I better get to it. have a great day

Good morning. Matt,the RR's are growing fast. They tend to do that. Delivery today and another one coming up for the middle Keys. I am noticeably slowing down physically. Can't do what I used to do. I could but takes much more effort. I'm keeping up with what needs to be done. Just need to finish some stuff I started. Weather has not helped. "Rain, rain go away."

Good Morning CGs!

Tommy, sorry to hear about the pup.

VB, hope you're feeling better after your nature experience.

Gris, don't worry about those rabbits, they breed like...well, rabbits.

Kids started school yesterday if you can believe it. RR#1 said she had a great day. RR#2 said his favorite part was early dismissal.

Looks like the battery on the Corvette might have a bad cell which was contributing to my starting issues.

And on the car topic the alarm on the Honda went off a few times in the middle of the night. Looks like it might be related to the trunk switch. I need to troubleshoot that.

Hope everyone has a great day!

...and a lot of it right now is somehow being bent around to blame the Trumpster and all who voted for him...... it's happening because of the conservative capitalistic ideals that we hold on to.

In a socialistic America they are implying that such things would not happen. Even though the left wingers have been in charge of a lot of major cities for years and years, and they will shoot more in Chicago alone this coming weekend and along with all the other big cities in the Nation the death count will be high. .......but nobody pays attention to that..... right?

Ban cell phones because of the accidents they create and the lives lost due to inattention. Ban cars because the impaired can drive them and we all know how bad that can be. Close the beaches because someone might get attacked by a shark.

Just heard about the guy that killed the cop in California with a long gun. It appears it was against the law for him to possess a weapon. How many killed on the streets of Chicago are killed with legal weapons? You can pass laws but how do you enforce them when someone is hellbent on creating chaos.

I'm 30 minutes from a police response. Does anybody think I'm going to rely on police protection? When our nurseries are burglarized and I get there in under 7 minutes and have to wait 15 to 20 minutes for police back up to arrive. I tell them I'm armed and going in to get them there a little faster. They don't like armed civilians engaging criminals. But I would, have, and will. Dangerous? Sure it is. But on our properties I'm the King, police, fire marshal, maintenance man, landscaper, maid, cook, dog walker and anything else I need to be. Even a plumber and I hate fuckin plumbing.

As some of you already know I live in the area of Dayton Ohio. Sadly a couple of weeks ago there was a mass shooting here in Dayton. These things have become so common that I’ve kind of wondered when it would happen in Dayton and now, sadly, I have that answer.
It happened in the downtown area called the, “Oregon District.” In the early ‘70’s a local effort began to rehab the area for historic reasons. Soon it became a popular area along a block of East Fifth street, with a number of watering holes for a number of tastes, from live music, dance, or just being seen.
There’s also the surrounding residential area that was given some rehab, some didn’t. As you might expect, there’s always been an element of residents there as well. The idiot that attacked people that night was not from there, but a better suburb of Dayton.
In 1989-90, I stopped going there because of not only the fight prone University of Dayton crowd, but more because of the murder of a work acquaintance. He was killed by a thief he caught who’d broken into his truck.
The Oregon District is still a very popular evening destination. Personally, I think the media blacks out crime in the District for monetary reasons. But I also think it’s probably somewhat safe. But there’s a reason there was a police presence that could respond so quickly. They’re there for a reason.
Ultimately, I still strongly support the second amendment. While I don’t prefer to own a gun, I believe in the rights given us in the Constitution.
I also believe that if the ENTIRE media, tv, print, etc., were to black out ALL glorification of the perpetrators of these crimes, they would be curtailed greatly.
These are just some thoughts I’ve had on this event and others. Thanks for taking the time to read them.

Rain everyday. Not a lot of appreciable sunshine lately. This is not the South Florida norm. Usually you have half a day of sunshine. Some nasty afternoon thunderstorms. Then the skies clear for a pleasant but warm, humid evening. I'm gonna have to write Al Gore and see what he thinks this might be. On a positive note, the current weather pattern is not beneficial to the development of hurricanes. Think I'm going to spray the house for those little Vulcan piss ants then wash the cars in the carport. They are covered in a protective layer of dirt and dust. Been thinking more of selling off lately. No action but the thought is there none the less. Need to go through the house, garage and sheds and do a major purge of unnecessary stuff. Sell some, give some away, donate some, and of course, fill the trash containers. If I start now I could be done by New Year's Eve 2021.

The hurting stopped, swellling started to go down, redness is going away but this danged itching is what kept me up all night. Tee I've never seen a reaction on me like that either. Got stung also on schin and it's just a tiny spot, bout size of a quarter, hurt a little, nothing else. Couple weeks ago I got stung though and had a large local reaction but nothing like this. Fingertips were getting cold so I called the doc. I'm due in at 6:45 tonight.
When you get done with that remodel I have some work lined up lol ;)
Have a great day


THAT SOUNDS THE WOODPILE WASPS THAT GAVE ME SUCH A FIT A WHILE BACK. ONE STUNG ME ON A FINGER AND IT SWOLL UP, HURT ALL THE WAY UP MY ARM, ITCHED ALL DAY.

THOSE LITTLE BASTARDS HAVE SOME REALLY POTENT VENOM, PROBABLY SOME KIND OF NEUROTOXIN, AS A STING ON THE ARM DIDN'T HAVE THE SAME ILL EFFECTS AS THE HAND.
HOPE YOU KILLED EVER LAST ONE OF THEM :-|

F'n wasps...... my ass is dragging today.....got some kind of head cold thing going on.......geez..... we had a bunny caught in one of our basement window wells and I had to go down and try to capture him and get him out....... damn those little guys are fast..... finally got him in a corner and got him in the bucket and handed him up to the other part of operation bunny rescue team and there he went into the tall grass....... we now find Easter eggs at our back door occasionally.... just trying to thank us I guess........

We have a lot of rain this summer in Nebraska but every time I look at the weather radar there is a huge cell going through Kansas it seems.... they have to be getting a lot of rain down there......

Gotta go now.......keep the shiny side up Guru's.....

Bumpy night here...Thunderboomers from about the time we went to bed throughout the night and into the morning. But not a lot of rain.

Today I'm working on the bathroom cabinets, then back over to #2s house to work on a closet expansion. The closet expansion was something that came up, somewhat unexpectedly.

The house is something that has been added on to, multiple times over the years. The room in question was originally a front porch (unlike a Porsche ). It was closed in at some point, then turned into a bedroom, moving the front door to another location. Then recently, like three weeks ago, the corner of the original porch was enclosed to the corner of the house, to square things up and they had the house stuccoed, but that little, new, enclosed area was inaccessible. The thought was, at some point in the future, that the closet adjacent to it, would be enlarged.

Well, a little problem in that bedroom the other day, prompted me to say, "I think, now is the time to open up that area." #2 wasn't really ready, but agreed it was the logical time to do the modifications. GS#3 and #2s Step son helped me tear into the wall. Framed, concrete blocks, siding and all. I need to go over and true-up the blocks a bit before I frame up around that. Then SIL (electrician by trade) will need to do the electrical stuff before I hang rock, tape and finish.

He has been out of town working 6 days a week, 12 hour days on a school remodel. They have to be done with that job, obviously, real soon, as school starts there next week. So he hasn't seen the changes in person. This place means a lot to him as it was originally his grandparents home (dating back to the late 40s), Then after his grandparents passed, his mom got the house, she passed about 10 years ago and now he owns it. Lots of memories from him.

I got to get going guys....have a great day.

A NICE SUNNY MORNING, THE HUMIDITY IS DOWN AND THE CHEROKEES ARE MORE COMFORTABLE.

WILL TRY TO DO SOME TRIMMING BEFORE IT GETS HOT.
