Good Morning CGs!

Yesterday I got to work on my car most of the day. I tinkered on other things in the garage in between. I got the lower intake manifold installed. That's done and torqued down. I started to install the lower runners and fuel rail. When I was looking for my extra gasket set a realized I didn't have one. The gasket set is $50 and takes 3 days to ship. Great. There are 7 gaskets total in the set. I had the four bottom gaskets from other kits so I decided to make the top runner gaskets. That took me a good 45 minutes but I have them. I installed the one side and the fuel rail. When I pressurized the system I found one of the o-rings on the fuel rail crossover tube was leaking. So I had to take that off and disassemble everything. Of course I don't have the correct size o-ring in my kit so I have to go to the parts store today. So that was a bummer.

Hope everyone has a great day

IT'S MONDAY AGAIN---DIDN'T WE JUST HAVE ONE OF THESE LAST WEEK?

A BEAUTIFUL MORNING IN THE NATIONS, FALL HAS RETURNED AND THE CHEROKEES APPROVE OF THIS WEATHER. A SUNNY 50 DEGREES OUT THERE, HIGH IN THE 70'S PREDICTED.

AUTO ROTATION TODAY, THE BUMBLEBEE MOVES TO THE READY RACK AND HARVEY GOES IN THE BARN. TIME TO PUT THE GLASS TOP BACK ON HARVEY, I'M TIRED OF MY HEAD BRUSHING THE HEADLINER :-)
I PUT THE SOLID TOP ON SO THE AC CAN KEEP UP IN THE OKLAHOMA SUMMER AND SWITCH IT OUT WHEN IT GETS COOLER.

NEED TO FIGURE UP WHAT LUMBER I'LL NEED TO BUILD A NEW DOGHOUSE.

Trip was less than stellar. Airline delays, weather issues (Tropical Storm Melissa), a grumpy wife all made for a trip I will soon forget. The ports of Halifax, and St John in Canada were nice to see. Portland, Me. and Boston stops were cancelled due to the ports being closed because of the tropical storm. 20 ft. seas made for a lot of rockin and a rollin. Sue and I did not get sick but a number of passengers and crew were affected. Gambling sucked overall but did manage to stay ahead till the third night. Oh well. Life goes on. I'm sure December's escape is sure to be better ... and shorter. Only a 4 day New Years getaway planned for that one.

MADE IT DOWN TO TENKILLER, A NICE DRIVE THRU THE WOODS. DW DID FINE, OR AS WELL AS USUAL ;-), GETTING IN AND OUT. THE ONION RINGS WERE SUPERB AS USUAL, MY CHILI CHEESEBURGER WAS LESS THAN GREAT, AND DARLING WIFE'S SALAD WAS A SALAD.

I MAY HAVE A PRE-SUPPER NAP---

Morning guys... up early and went to church. It said it was 35 out when we went out the door. Didn’t feel that bad though, no wind, so my light jacket was more than enough..

GS #4 has a cross country meet today, so we will go watch that. GS#6 had his BDay Thursday, but he wasn’t around when we got here (they went to St. Louis with GS#5 and their mother) to GS#5 soccer tourney. They will be home later today and we will celebrate this evening.

Other than that, that’s about it. I hope Marcus is done licking his wounds from the licking Big Red took yesterday.

SUNNY, CALM, AND COLDISH IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING, 46 OUT THE KITCHEN WINDOW, 48 ON THE FRONT PORCH. THE FRONT THERMOMETER HAS A HISTORY OF SCHIZOPHRENIA, HOWEVER.

DIDN'T MAKE IT TO THE FLEA MARKET YESTERDAY; DID GET THE STRAW AND ALSO A FLU SHOT. NOTHING ON THE AGENDA TODAY, I'M THINKING MAYBE A DRIVE DOWN TO SODA STEVE'S FOR A BURGER THIS AFTERNOON, IF DARLING WIFE IS UP FOR A CORVETTE DRIVE. SHE HAS BEEN HAVING KNEE PROBLEMS AND GETTING IN AND OUT OF THE VETTES IS PAINFUL FOR HER.

THE CHEROKEES ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO A PRETTY DAY.

FIRST FROST IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING, SUNNY, CALM, AND COLD.

NOTHING ON THE AGENDA TODAY, THINK I'LL MAKE A PASS THRU THE FLEA MARKET AFTER IT WARMS UP A BIT. IT'S ALWAYS SUCH FUN LOOKING THROUGH OTHER PEOPLES CAST-OFFS :-) ALSO NEED TO PICK UP A BALE OF STRAW FOR THE DOGHOUSE.

TODAY WOULD HAVE BEEN SON'S 50TH BIRTHDAY. DARLING WIFE IS MAKING A FUSS ABOUT IT, NOT SURE IT'S A HEALTHY THING TO DO.
KINDA LIKE PICKING AT A SCAB---

MARCUS, I WAS THINKING ABOUT BRAD THE OTHER DAY, AND BILL ALSO; MISS THEIR COMMENTS.

ENJOY THE DAY, GURUS!

Clear and chilly start, it was 35 earlier, 40 now. Got my hair cut last night. Nothing on the agenda this morning.

Where is everyone else? I trust all of you will have a great day.

CORVETTE RACING AT PETIT LE MANS: Full Speed Ahead in Final C7.R Race

Press Release:
Corvette Racing will try to race its way through the field Saturday and close the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R era with a GT Le Mans (GTLM) victory 
 

CORVETTE RACING AT PETIT LE MANS: Full Speed Ahead in Final C7.R Race

BRASELTON, Ga. (Oct. 11, 2019) – Corvette Racing will try to race its way through the field Saturday and close the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R era with a GT Le Mans (GTLM) victory in the 10-hour Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.


Antonio Garcia qualified the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R second Friday in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s top production based class Friday. He set a time of 1:15.702 (120.789 mph) in the car that he shares with full-season teammate Jan Magnussen and Mike Rockenfeller. However, the No. 3 Corvette was found to be out of compliance in post-qualifying inspection and will be moved to the back of the GTLM field.


Teammate Oliver Gavin, in the No. 4 Corvette C7.R, set a time of 1:16.048 (120.239 mph) Friday and will start seventh in GTLM. In a display of the competitiveness of GTLM, Gavin was only 0.409 seconds from pole and less than two-tenths from the second row. He will drive with Tommy Milner and Marcel Fässler – the trio having placed second at Road Atlanta in GTLM a year ago.


Saturday’s race will be the 74th and final race for the C7.R under the Corvette Racing banner with the new Corvette C8.R set to make its racing debut in January at the Rolex 24 At Daytona. On Saturday morning, the C8.R will perform two demonstration laps ahead of the 2019 season finale.


Corvette Racing has competed at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta more than any other venue in its history; Saturday will be No. 23. There have been 10 victories in that span including eight in Petit Le Mans. So the long-game approach in the race is something that the program has used to its advantage time and again.


The 10-hour Motul Petit Le Mans is set for 12:05 p.m. ET on Saturday, Oct. 12. It will air live starting at noon ET on NBC, followed by coverage on the NBC Sports App from 3-5:30 p.m. and on NBCSN from 5:30-10:30 p.m. Live audio coverage will be available on IMSA Radio, Sirius 113, XM 202 and SiriusXM Online 972.

 
OLIVER GAVIN, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R – STARTING SEVENTH IN GTLM: "Qualifying was close, very close. Unfortunately we were at the back end of it. We definitely improved the car going into that session. It seemed like everybody else took a decent step forward. I had a pretty good lap going, probably my best lap, and I was probably a little too tentative going into (Turn) Seven and it cost us some time. It would have bumped us up a couple of spots and maybe got us in front of the Porsche. We know it's a long race and where you start here has very little to do with where you finish. So I feel we can improve the car and we will work with that overnight and get ourselves in the best possible spot for the start. It's going to be long, it’s going to be hard, it’s going to be close. I think we have finally gotten ourselves in a good spot with the car and it will be raceable in every condition with every tire. We will be ready to go."
 

ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R – STARTING NINTH IN GTLM: "It was a pretty good lap. We were still able to do a good one even after losing that amount of track time in Practice One. We've been going back and forth setup in Practice Two. At the end of the day that gave us a good indication of something to play with. We put in everything we could to show we have a fast car, and we showed it. We were very close to pole which I didn't expect for sure when we put together the lap. Everybody was super close. I’m happy with how the car behaved and the car we have for the race. Ending up at the back doesn't change our speed. We will have speed tomorrow and that should be a good thing."

Thanks, as always, cor123.

I've been watching qualifying, and—though I'm totally in favor of the C8 and (dear lord, have you heard that thing?) the C8.R—I can't help but feel a sense of sadness.

This race will mark the end of a magnificent era that started back in 1999. The engine roar (like a freight train, Ivelis says) won't be the same or that distinctive way the cars actually move through the turns.

Hey guys...started out chilly and cloudy this morning, now it’s just chilly. Some of the grands don’t have school today, so we are watching them. Watching a movie, Jumanji, not the Robin Williams one, but the “Rock” one, it’s pretty funny.

Not much going on today.

Ya..... 32 degrees here this AM.... colder tonight...then back up to regular temps. Not much more to report... got the new Edelbrock manifold and carb on the 56...looks nice! The cruise control unit is next. After that there will be the sound system to install and some different A arms on the front end and I think it will be ready for touring...

Have a splendid day Guru's......

I SHOULD GO GET A FLU SHOT TODAY, RESTOCK DOG FOOD. I KEEP PA'ING BUILDING A NEW DOGHOUSE, THE OLD ONE IS FALLING APART.
I'LL HAVE TO BUILD IT IN SECTIONS AND ASSEMBLE IT IN THE DOG PEN AS IT WILL BE TOO AWKWARD AND HEAVY TO MOVE IN ONE PIECE. WISH #3 GRANDSON WAS HERE, BUT HE WON'T BE HOME FROM BRAZIL UNTIL DECEMBER.

We made it to KC. I’m all signed up to start Medicare come January. Not going to start SS until I reach my full retirement age. Rosie might when she retires, and she will retire this next year (birthday in Feb.) but we are waiting to see most advantages time for state retirement system, before we know when that will be.

Been pretty chilly all day, but we didn’t really notice as we were in the pickup. I did pick up the Pit Boss grill. Will have to wait until we get home and I will put it together.

IT'S CLOUDY AND COOL THIS MORNING, THE CHEROKEES ARE AGAIN WAITING FOR THE RAIN :-(

GOT THE OBSTACLE COURSE MOWED YESTERDAY, JUST IN TIME FOR MORE RAIN. LOOKS LIKE A TWO NAP DAY COMING UP.

THIS IS AN INTERESTING AND WELL WRITTEN ARTICLE:

AND IT AIN'T JUST CALIFORNIA. THIS COUNTRY HAS FAR TOO MANY LAWYERS, TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT, TOO MANY NAGS AND SCOLDS, AND WAY TOO MUCH MEDIA.

Good morning y'all.
Hope everyone's week is going allright. Got back from our girl trip Monday around midnight, way too busy Tuesday, not too bad yesterday hoping for a slow day today. Feel horrible. Local docs say allergies for people this year mimick the flu. All the field burning doesn't help any.
Talked to cousin in nursing home, she seems in good spirits except wants a can of cashews. I have a friend keeping an eye out there till I get back over there.
Happy Thursday, just one more day -

Hey guys...been running since the git-go this morning. It warmed up to upper 80s today. Tomorrow a high of upper 40s and lows Friday morning into the upper 20s. Close to a 70 degree swing in 36 hours, last time this happened, we lost a lot of trees around town....doesn't look good....

Work on computers and building cabinets has been the rule of the day here.

Tomorrow is travel day. First to Dodge City and visit with the SS people about medicare and maybe about getting SS started for Rosie....not sure about that yet. Then headed on up to KC to see the kids up there.

Sounds like you may have gotten a good deal on that grill, Marcus. I talked to our local hardware guy today and he was talking the Louisiana Grill up pretty good, but he sells Traegers and Pit Boss as well. No decision yet.

Happy birthday Andy! Same as John Lennon...different years of course.

Well, I better get to doing some packing for the weekend.

Press Release:Team seeking landmark IMSA victory in 2019 finale at Michelin Raceway Road
Atlanta


CORVETTE RACING AT PETIT LE MANS: Hoping to Close on a High Note
Team seeking landmark IMSA victory in 2019 finale at Michelin Raceway Road
Atlanta

• Corvette Racing with 10 victories at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta
• Continued quest for IMSA victory No. 100
• Final race for Corvette C7.R with Corvette Racing
• 2020 Corvette Stingray, Corvette Tour on location in Michelin Raceway Fan
Midway


DETROIT  (Oct. 8, 2019) – Corvette Racing will close the 2019 season – and
the era of the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R – this weekend at a familiar
location. Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta plays host to Corvette Racing and
the rest of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship for the annual
10-hour Petit Le Mans on Saturday.

This will be the 23rd event at Road Atlanta for Corvette Racing – the most
of any track in the team’s 21-year history. The program claims 10 victories
at the circuit including eight at Petit Le Mans. If recent years are any
indication, there is a strong chance that Corvette Racing will contend once
again; it has recorded podium finishes in each of the last four years
including runner-up finishes the last two.

Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Marcel Fässler will look to finish one spot
better than 2018 driving the No. 4 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R.
That came a year after Antonio Garcia, Jan Magnussen and Mike Rockenfeller
did the same in the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Corvette. Both trios are back for
this year’s Petit Le Mans as Corvette Racing seeks its first victory at Road
Atlanta since 2010.

Garcia and Magnussen, two-time and defending GT Le Mans (GTLM) champions,
stand third in this year’s points chase with an outside chance a third
straight title. It would be Corvette Racing’s fourth consecutive GTLM
championship dating back to Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner’s 2016 crown.

Even without title hopes, Corvette Racing still has plenty at stake,
including its 100th triumph in IMSA competition.

Final Race for Corvette C7.R
A victory Saturday also would send out the Corvette C7.R on a high note. As
revealed last week, the team will field [the mid-engine Corvette C8.R in
2020starting with the Rolex 24 At Daytona.

Since its debut in 2014, the C7.R has won 17 races in 73 events across IMSA
and the FIA World Endurance Championship. Its 16 wins in IMSA is the
second-most of any car in the WeatherTech Championship to date. The C7.R
also helped Chevrolet and Corvette Racing claim consecutive GTLM
Manufacturer Championships (2016-17), and Driver and Team Championships
(2016-18). With the C7.R, Corvette Racing scored victories at Le Mans,
Daytona (twice) and Sebring (three times).

The C7.R is based on the road-going Corvette C7 Z06. It made several
advances in technology from the sixth-generation Corvette. For the first
time, the aluminum frame for both road car and racecar were both produced
in-house at the Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The
addition of direct fuel injection to the Corvette Z06 enabled the technology
to return to a Corvette race car for the first time since the end of the GT1
era in 2009. The Z06 and C7.R also shared aggressive aero strategies with
greater levels of component cooling and downforce.

2020 Corvette Stingray Tour
 – the manufacturer’s first mid-engine production Corvette in its history –
will be the main attraction at the Chevrolet Motorsports Display in Michelin
Raceway Road Atlanta’s Fan Midway. Chevrolet will showcase the fastest, most
powerful entry-level Corvette from Thursday through Friday along with a
state-of-the-art informational display dedicated to the Corvette,

The 2020 Stingray is rated at 490hp with an eight-speed, dual-clutch
transmission. It is powered by the 6.2L Chevrolet small-block V8 LT2 engine
that produces 465 ft-lbs of torque. At Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, the
2020 Stingray Coupe and 2020 Stingray Convertible will be on display.

“It’s incredibly exciting to take the 2020 Corvette Stingray to Michelin
Raceway Road Atlanta,” said Ed Piatek, Corvette chief engineer. “Petit Le
Mans features one of the largest fan followings in all of North American
racing. That includes a huge number of Corvette owners at the Corvette
Corral. We’re excited to show them the next-generation Corvette, as we
support Corvette Racing in its final race of the year.”

The entry-level 2020 Stingray continues that tradition as a no-compromise
value proposition, as it will start under $60,000. It will go into
production at GM’s Bowling Green Assembly later this year.

Chevrolet, Motorsports on Display
In addition to the 2020 Stingray, a number of additional Chevrolet vehicles
will be on-site at the Chevrolet Motorsports Display and Corvette Display
for visitors to view and learn from a team of product specialists. Vehicles
and attractions include:

• Production vehicles such as the 2019 Blazer RS, 2020 Colorado Crewcab Z71,
2020 Silverado 1500 and Silverado 2500 HD LT, and 2020 Camaro 2SS 1LE.
• A Corvette C7.R show car
• Samples of Chevrolet engines, performance parts and accessories available
to fans for purchase from their local Chevrolet dealer
• A variety of Chevrolet and racing related activities for adults and kids
• 2020 Corvette T-shirts for fans who sign up with Chevrolet Motorsports

The Chevrolet Motorsports and Corvette Displays will be open at 8 a.m. on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The 10-hour Motul Petit Le Mans is set for 12:05 p.m. ET on Saturday, Oct.
12. It will air live starting at noon ET on NBC, followed by coverage on the
NBC Sports App from 3-5:30 p.m. and on NBCSN from 5:30-10:30 p.m. Live audio
coverage will be available on IMSA Radio, Sirius 113, XM 202 and SiriusXM
Online 972.


ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R:  “I really want to win Petit
Le Mans. Corvette Racing has always been strong at Michelin Raceway Road
Atlanta in past years but we have just missed out on wins there. It’s been
very, very close. The championship is very unlikely so we can go all-out for
a win. This event is one I like very much because of the track and the
distance. It’s a very fast track and creates a good race. So let’s see how
we can do. If we can’t get the championship, the next best thing is to win
the race.”

JAN MAGNUSSEN, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R : “I’ve made
every start at Petit Le Mans since 1999, so this race has a special meaning
to me. The event is great, the fans are great and the track is great. In
many ways it’s the most demanding race we do. The layout of the track and
the mix of cars makes it really tough to pass and overtake. You have to be
decisive and have a clear understanding of how the car and the tires are
working together during all 10 hours. That’s what makes this race such a
challenge. There’s a lot of risk but also a lot of reward.”

MIKE ROCKENFELLER, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R:  “It was
tough not being at Petit Le Mans last year because I really like the event.
Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta is an awesome track that presents a very big
challenge in any type of car – prototype or GT. It has a big-event feel to
it with a lot of cars and drivers. I’m really looking forward to getting
back in the Corvette again for this race. We were so close at Le Mans and I
feel like a win here would take away some of that sting.”

OLIVER GAVIN, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R:  “It’s been a
trying season in a lot of ways for Tommy and I, but a strong finish at Petit
Le Mans would leave us with a little bit of satisfaction. Michelin Raceway
Road Atlanta presents a unique challenge when you consider the length of the
race, nature of the track and the amount of cars. It’s definitely one of the
biggest races on the IMSA calendar – nearly on the same level as Daytona and
Sebring. This will be my 20th start at Petit Le Mans, and the fan turnout
and support we get from the Corvette community is always fantastic. Closing
out with a solid result would set us on the right course into 2020.”

TOMMY MILNER, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R: “Petit Le Mans
is an incredible event. Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta provides such great
racing and passing opportunities… some places where the prototype guys try
to sneak in at places make it exciting for us and them. In our GT cars, it’s
so fast. There’s so much grip and such a huge challenge. The track is fun by
yourself, but when you add in the full field and 10 hours, it makes for a
great race. It’s one where everyone holds their breath to the checkered
flag. I’m excited. Our Corvettes have always been fast there. Hopefully we
can end the season on a high note.”

MARCEL FÄSSLER, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R:  “I’m happy
to be back with Corvette Racing for Petit Le Mans. This is an incredible
race and another of my favorites in the U.S. The fans at Michelin Raceway
Road Atlanta make it feel like a big event that keeps growing every year.
For us on the No. 4 Corvette, we want to end the season on a high note. The
team has been through a lot this year with some bad misfortune at Le Mans
and in IMSA. But the team is strong and the Corvette is always very good. I’m
looking forward to a great weekend.”

HIPPO BIRDIE TWO ANDY!

HAVE NOT HEARD MUCH FROM HIM LATELY, SHOULD WE PAY THE RANSOM OR HAS HE ESCAPED?

COOL AND JUST BARELY SUNNY IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING. MORE RAIN PREDICTED AND LOWER TEMPERATURES. WE SEEM TO BE GOING STRAIGHT INTO WINTER WITHOUT MUCH FALL.
BUMMER!

GOT THE BUMBLEBEE IN FOR FLUSH & REFILL OF THE COOLING SYSTEM. I LET THAT LAPSE ON ALL THE VEHICLES EXCEPT DARLING WIFE'S HYUNDAI, WHICH IS STILL RELATIVELY NEW. NOW THEY WILL ALL COME DUE AGAIN AT THE SAME TIME. THERE IS AN ANCIENT MILITARY AXIOM:
PROPER PRIOR PLANNING PREVENTS PISS POOR PERFORMANCE :-0

MAY MOW THE OBSTACLE COURSE TODAY IF THE RAIN HOLDS OFF, COULD IT BE THE FINAL TIME THIS YEAR? THAT WOULD BE SO SAD :-)

Ya.....warm and breezy here in the cornbelt....harvest is in full swing... they are saying the S word coming up maybe on Thursday or Friday....glad its an away game....

Tee I was down at Ace Hardware yesterday looking for some stuff and they had their Traeger 20" Pro models on clearance sale. I checked on line for the model number and its last years model. They had them online for around 650 to 700 hundred bucks depending where you looked. They had these at $525 which I did not think was bad for a Traeger so I bought one......still pricey.... going to give it a break in burn later on.... might have to do some smoking of the meats this weekend.....

Have an illuminating day Guru's

TEE, I HOPE THAT COLD WEATHER STAYS UP THERE WITH YOU ALL.

IT'S NICE HERE, ABOUT 52 WHEN I GOT UP, THE SUN IS SHINING BRIGHT, ANOTHER GOOD DAY TO BE OUTSIDE.

I NEED TO ADD YESTERDAY'S CUT DOWN BUSHES AND TRIMMINGS TO THE WEST SIDE BRUSH PILE, NO FUN THERE, TOO MUCH BENDING OVER. THERE'S STILL WEED EATING TO DO IN THE DOG PEN; SOME HOW THAT JUST NEVER GETS DONE :-)

ALWAYS FORWARD, GURUS!

Morning guys... another cool one, lower 40s now but headed to low 80s today. But by Thursday, the highs will be in the upper 30s. And a hard freeze is eminent Friday and Saturday nights

Good Morning CGs!

Haven't checked in lately, I apologize for that.

Not much going on here. I got the valves set on the car and the block and intake prepped. Found one manifold bolt was somehow bent so I picked up a new one tonight. Maybe I'll get the lower intake installed this week. We'll see.

Still can't believe it's October. As a testament to time marching on, RR#2 turned 9 the other day. Many of you remember me posting baby pictures from when he was born. Time flies.

TB, happy birthday to your grandson.

Tommy, enjoy the trip.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Pit boss at Menards...slightly different model I can order from Walmart for $100 cheaper and the one the lady, from Topeka, has on FB marketplace is new in box, like the one I could order from Walmart and she wants $100 less than Walmart. If that deal falls through, I'll probably order the one from Walmart.

Got a call from neighbor across the street, needing me to do a small project for him, so I worked on that today, and got it done.

Celebrating #3 GS birthday this evening. 15 years old and Saturday will be the 15th year since my dad passed away.

Nice here also..... I hear the dull roar of 10,000 combines firing up to get into the harvest.... do not get in their way......

Where did you see the Pit Boss at Tee? Those Treager folks are real proud of their stuff.

I better get some snacks together and ride in some half million dollar Combines that will steer themselves around the field while we sit and chat and sip coffee....... very nice.....

Up and at em Guru's....
