Good afternoon, all. Ivelis and I drove to Longwood Gardens this morning to see their tulips, which number in the tens of thousands. Tulips are my favorite flower, so this made me quietly happy.

Morning guys....Perfect day? Yea, it was a perfect day yesterday, 71 and no wind (< 10mph). Today it 51 already and headed towards the mid to upper 80s. Church today isn't until 8:30pm (have to wait until it's almost dark), so we have the whole day to get things done.

Rosie did get the final details stripped on the old rocker last night. About 8pm, I looked at my phone (I had put it on "do not disturb" for church at 3 and forgot to turn it back on), and found a message from Father, asking me to call another lady in the parish. So I call and she tells me he wants the Easter candle holder cut down. This one that 7 or 8 years ago the priest wanted me to make taller, so I was able to modify two smaller ones to make it taller....so we made a call to Father, he was on his way home from the other parish he serves (30 miles away) and found out what he wanted for sure. I refuse to cut up the existing pieces as they were made by the priest, almost 60 years ago, when the current church building was built. So what I told father was, I could separate the two pieces, and that would shorten it by 18". It wasn't what he was thinking, but agreed to that. So at 8:45 I took the candle holder home and took the two apart. When I got them apart, the lower section, which was the part we were using, didn't look too good and it wasn't as big as Father really wanted, so I added a top piece to finish off the top....and while I was at it I decided to make it bigger to satisfy him. So at 10pm I was turning that piece on the lathe. I finished it up and by 11:15 I took it back to the church. Hopefully it will surprise Father that it is done...and he will like it.

Have a wonderful day.

Thank you for the review. Like Yankovic on the accordian, Martin has some serious musical talent to go along with the humor. Annoyingly, he can also write:

Morning guys....Up at normal time, but because it is Good Friday, I'm fasting today. All I've had is a cup of coffee, and that is about all I'm planning until this evening.

The weather is nice this morning, 38 to start, but already up to 60 and a high of low to mid 70s is expected, and no wind right now.

I've been out in the shop working on the stripping of a rocker, that Rosie said, she would do for her other nurse...so notice WHO is doing the work. She did apply a coat of the stripper on parts of the chair.

Safe travels Gris, and prayers for your son.

Good Morning CGs!

Back from the vacation and still recovering. The weather here has been a roller coaster. On Sunday (while we were gone) some areas recorded up to 8" of snow. The 50ish and sunny weather on Monday melted everything. Tuesday was a little better. Wednesday saw sunny skies with 76*. Thursday was in the 50s with rain. It is supposed to slowly creep up and be warm on Easter. All I know it the rapid climate changes are murder on my sinuses and I'm having terrible headaches.

Seems like everyone has kept busy while I was away.

Marcus, happy belated birthday.

Tommy, the brick patio looks very nice. But only you could waste a perfectly good chair by putting a statue in it

John, congrats on the book process.

TB, congrats on the haircut

Sorry if I missed any other accomplishments.

Hope everyone has a great day!

CORVETTE RACING AT LONG BEACH: SPOILER ALERT

Press Release:
Garcia, Magnussen, Gavin, Milner all climb GT Le Mans podium 
CORVETTE RACING AT LONG BEACH: Second and Third in Another Thriller
Garcia, Magnussen, Gavin, Milner all climb GT Le Mans podium


LONG BEACH, Calif. (April 13, 2019) – Corvette Racing claimed two podium finishes Saturday at the Bubba Burger Sports Car Grand Prix of Long Beach, the first time since 2014 that the program scored a pair of top-three results on the streets of southern California.


Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen placed second in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) category of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with their No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R. They were followed closely by Tommy Milner and Oliver Gavin in the No. 4 Corvette in third place.


As was the case for the last handful of years at Long Beach, Saturday’s race was a topsy-turvy affair up to the finish. After finding misfortune while leading the last two years, Garcia and Magnussen finally had luck turn their way. After Garcia began fifth, the No. 3 Corvette gained a spot during its lone pit stop under caution 40 minutes into the race.


Rejoining fourth, Magnussen immediately began hounding the third-place Porsche. He made the move going into the first corner with 23 minutes left and set out to run down the second-place Ford.


Meanwhile, Gavin began third and set the fastest GTLM lap of the race before handing off to Milner. Looking for a third straight Long Beach class victory with his teammate, Milner went from sixth to fourth with seven minutes remaining. He continued his challenge as Magnussen caught the second-place car with two laps to go. The No. 3 Corvette moved into second when the Ford ran out of fuel on the final lap, and the two cars made contact. Magnussen was able to continue with Milner right behind to the finish.


Corvette Racing’s next event is the Acura Sports Car Challenge at Mid-Ohio on May 3-5.

ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R – SECOND IN GTLM: “Things happened for us but not against us like in previous years. So that’s a plus! We aren’t used to having trouble-free last laps here. I told Jan with my luck, I don’t know if I would have made it to the end! It was a tough position to switch our strategy here. Jan is a great qualifier here, so it was tough for me to discover qualifying after all these years of him doing it. So I did my best. I think I had a car to qualify on the first row, but we know GTLM is super-competitive. In the race, I got stuck behind the 66 so all I could do was save fuel. It helped us jumped the 4 Corvette in the pits and we almost got the Porsches. After that, Jan did a magnificent job with managing the tires and fuel. I’m happy keeping it this way! I know I’ll qualify better next year, so maybe we can do that and win the race.”
 

JAN MAGNUSSEN, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R – SECOND IN GTLM: “The end was pretty crazy with the 66 running out of fuel ahead of me. I thought I was going to get stuck behind him, so I had to get on the throttle full to push him out of the way to get that last half-lap back to the checkered flag. Corvette Racing did a fantastic job setting the car up and thinking about what we needed at the end of the race. I don’t know if we had the best car, but it was close. I’m super happy today. For sure we’d like to get a win soon. We’ve caught up in the championship so it’s a good day.”
 

OLIVER GAVIN, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R – THRID IN GTLM: “You can’t take your eyes off things at this race… not for one second. It’s a crazy, action-packed event. My stint was relatively straight-forward. I had a few bits and pieces I had to be careful of at the start. We had an early caution, and I was mainly shadowing the two Porsches. I kept thinking about where we were going to be when it came to that pit stop, if it was going to go green all the way. It didn’t so we all came in together. It looked like we were going to be good but got caught out slightly with everyone else on fuel, and everyone went a little shorter than we did. We were out running around in fifth, and Tommy did a fantastic job to get by one of the Porsches. Then it was just rolling those laps off. That last lap again was crazy with how everything unfolded. At the end of the day, we’re happy with good points and a podium but we really would have loved a win.”
 

TOMMY MILNER, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R – THIRD IN GTLM: ”This race and this race track lead to racing like this. There’s a lot happening at every stage of the race with our race, prototypes racing their race… you combine that for 100 minutes with everyone going from the word ‘go’, you’re going to have fireworks here and there. In the end, it’s a pretty good result for Corvette Racing. We can’t be too unhappy with second and third. We had a good Corvette today. Track position is really big. The Ford being out front there holding us up a little bit didn't help for sure, and we lost a spot or two on pit lane as well.  It's one of those things. This racing is about tenths of seconds and every little thing counts. You have to have a really, really good race to get wins. That's why when you win it feels so good.  Even so, a second and a third felt like a good result for us today. Tt felt like there was a little bit more for us today. Certainly getting a win for us would have been a great challenge. We had a great car and it was a good drive for Olly at the start there. We’re pumped to be on the podium again at Long Beach. It's not a win, but we will take it!"

Well, I spent the entire day cleaning the shop. I threw away scraps of lumber and plywood, enough the fill the dumpster and an old pickup tool box that a friend leaves here for me to throw lumber pieces in. I called him and told him it was full (he just came by a couple weeks ago and emptied it), "Already?" "Yea, well, I'm doing my spring cleaning today."

It has been a pretty breezy day, but at one point this afternoon, it started blowing pretty hard and the dust in the air was so bad, I could barely see the house across the alley. That lasted about 15 minutes, then went back to just 15-20mph breezes.

I'm in now to get ready for Holy Thursday services.

Letty, watch out for the summer. All this rain now means your probably in for a hotter than average summer drought. You'll have to go to Hot Springs just to cool off.

Intelligence. Something lots of folks are lacking nowadays. Especially the younger group it seems.
I got all y'alls rain by the way. And the noise to go along with it. Everyone in our entire region was promptly awakened around 4 this morning by the loudest clap of thunder and the brightest lighting the likes we'd not seen in a long time. And I think we're up to about 3" of rain now. As if our mud isn't muddy enough. Looks to be shaping up to be a nice weekend though once it moves on out.

Brought my Suburban in for a recall on the steering assist. Got there at 07:15. Out by 08:15. Made an appointment yesterday afternoon. To my surprise they had an opening for 07:30 this morning. I've been dragging on bringing it in. I've known for about 6 months. Waiting on a Fed Ex shipment to come to the house. A filter system for the nursery fish pond. Boosting up the grade at the bottom of the home fence to try and keep two of my dogs from finding escapes. Going to cut the home grass. Took care of some nagging stuff I've been putting off yesterday. Good. I can take them off my memory list of things I need to do.

Morning guys...Cool on the high plains this morning. The moisture missed us too. Not as warm today, only mid 60s. Not a lot planned for the day.

I'm thinking a spring cleaning is in order out in the shop. I know, at some point, I am going to do a cleaning and painting the walls and ceiling at the storage shed. Shop cleaning today.

Have a great Thursday, guys!

Good morning, all.

A busy day at work for me today, but quieting down across the University as this week proceeds due to both Easter and Passover closing rapidly upon us.

May is also closing rapidly on us. In gorgeous/retro Indy Car news:

Freaking crazy day. Not much accomplished this morning, with the funeral. This afternoon, didn't get anything done either, but run from one place to another chasing my tail. Tonight I led the Stations of the Cross for the last time for this year. Lots of church the next few days.

CLOUDY AND COOL IN THE NATIONS, STORMS PREDICTED FOR THIS EVENING, STRONG WIND, HAIL. THE CHEROKEES COULD DO WITHOUT THIS CRAP.

THE QUESTION FOR THE DAY: WILL I TRIM BUSHES OR WILL JUST LAZE AROUND?

STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT EXCITING EPISODE---

Morning guys.... Another nice day on tap...a bit more breezy, and not quite as warm (upper 70s predicted). 54 now and breezy.

I have another funeral to go to this morning, the father of my friend (my plumber ) I worked with these two guys on several different jobs over the years. Dad was 93, so he lived a long and fruitful life.

The lady I did the kitchen for a year and and a half back, and the bathroom earlier this year, let us know her son (a former student) passed away yesterday as well. He has been fighting brain cancer for some time. He lives in California, but they are bringing him back here for the funeral and burial. That funeral is going to be next week on Friday.

I think you can see, we've been inundated with death here...I know it's part of life, but let's spread it out a bit.

I trust all of you will have a great day.

Long day.....the funeral wasn't too large, but I had had three of his grandsons in school, so after the funeral, they came and talked to me. Then I had a haircut. The lady that cuts my hair had another projects for me, so I did that one this afternoon. And I made a plaque for the KofC group north of us. Their "Knight of the year" plaque was full, so I made one to match the one they had. They now are good for 30 years.

It was an absolute perfect day, made up to 80 and very light breezes. I had the 70s on 7 blaring away and the overhead door open.

NICE DAY, ALL DAY LONG. GOT IT ALL DONE EXCEPT THE TRIMMING. MAYBE TOMORROW---

PUT THE TOP DOWN ON THE TOMATO TO GO OVER TO TAHLEQUAH, FIRST TIME THIS YEAR. NICE

YESTERDAY I LET SWEETHEART OUT TO RUN, FIRST TIME SINCE SHE WAS SPAYED. SHE SKIED OFF, WHICH IS NOT UNUSUAL, AND DIDN'T COME BACK, WHICH IS. DIRECTLY I GOT A CALL FROM A NEIGHBOR UP THE RIDGE; HE HAD A BLUE TICK HE'D CAUGHT AND TIED UP, WAS IT MINE?

WHEN I DROVE UP SHE HAD HER NOSE POINTED TOWARD HOME, BARKING HER HEAD OFF. SHE IS USUALLY A PIA TO GET IN THE TRUCK, AS IT USUALLY MEANS A TRIP TO THE VET, BUT NOT THIS TIME. SHE WAS READY TO COME HOME :-)

THIS GUY WAS THE OWNER OF A BEAGLE THAT USED TO COME VISITING. HE WOULD DIG INTO THE PEN TO PLAY WITH MY DOGS.
NEVER SEEN A DOG DIG INTO A PEN---

THE BEAGLE FOUND A PLACE WITH AN UNALTERED FEMALE AND A LITTLE BOY. THE LITTLE BOY KEPT TAKING THE COLLAR OFF AND TELLING HIS MOM HE WAS A STRAY AND CAN I KEEP HIM. WHEN HE 'FESSED UP SHE FOUND THREE COLLARS THE BOY HAD HIDDEN. THE NEIGHBOR JUST GAVE THE DOG TO HIM AND I GUESS THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER. EVERY BEAGLE SHOULD HAVE HIS OWN LITTLE BOY :-)

Morning guys...Got a cal from Father yesterday. While we were gone a parishioner passed away. Not a close friend, but we were acquaintances. Anyway he needs help at the funeral today. So I will go help him this morning.

It is overcast this morning and mid 40s. Headed to mid 70s.

I have an appointment to get my hair cut this afternoon. The lady doing it called me, Sunday, and needed a board cut down to size and edges routed for a project she is doing. So I called her when we got home and had her bring in the board and I did the job for her. When she tried paying me, I asked her if she would be willing to trade out. She said "Straight across?" I said "No, I'll pay you the difference" She said, "You'll pay me? No, I think I'll owe you." So we agreed to do a straight swap.

About time for me to head over to the church. have a great day, and I'll check back later.

TOMMY THAT IS MOST IMPRESSIVE, A VERY GOOD JOB I'D SAY.

'OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING," SUNNY, COOL, BREEZY. THINGS HAVE DRIED OUT ENOUGH TO DO SOME STUFF TODAY, GET CAR TAGS, BIRDSEED, CAT FOOD, TRIM SOME BUSHES, AND I'M A DAY BEHIND ON AUTO ROTATION.

HERE'S THE LATEST GUN CONTROL SCAM:

Many older adults keep guns loaded, unlocked at home, survey says
These unsafe practices make suicide easier and endanger kids and visitors, researchers said. Survey respondents who had guns in their home were more likely to be white, male and married. Men in rural areas and military veterans were more likely to keep their weapons unlocked and loaded. (AN OBVIOUSLY EVIL GROUP) Many older adults, including those who are mentally impaired, don't lock up their guns and ammo, University of Washington researchers report. "Findings of this study highlight the importance of addressing access to firearms among older adults, especially those who display signs of dementia or suicide risk factors," said senior researcher Dr. Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, an associate professor of epidemiology. GOTTA DISARM THESE OLD FARTS---

BROUGHT TO YOU COURTESY OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF BURGLARS---

I READ THEY ARE CATCHING CONGOLESE AT THE BORDER, CHECKING THEM FOR EBOLA. ANOTHER GOOD REASON TO CONTROL THE BORDER.

Looks good, Tom.

I'll have to post some pictures of our green, green grass, which is where most of our exterior effort has been spent this spring.

The words didn't come easily yesterday evening: we sit at 18,800 words/59 pages

Not perfect but what is? I did not cut a single brick. 5 long equaled 14 sideways so I spaced accordingly. I have to paint and Sue is going to plant. The home, a never ending project. I put 2 before pics on the end.

Made it home....unloaded the car, put things away, then I changed oil in the Caddy and filled it up with gas. While I did that Rosie mowed the lawn here. Then we went down to the storage shed and we mowed there too. Then back home and dug up the broken sprinkler head and fixed that...first time a plumbing project worked out reasonably right for me. I hate f@#king plumbing.

I'm tired and headed to bed.

SO HERE'S THE GRIS SOLUTION TO TAX POLICY:

15% ACROSS THE BOARD FLAT TAX ON ALL INCOME FROM ANY SOURCE NO MATTER THE AMOUNT

NO DEDUCTIONS OF ANY SORT

NO "NON PROFITS"---ANY PERSON OR ENTITY THAT OWNS PROPERTY OR MEETS A PAYROLL PAYS TAX

WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THE UNEMPLOYED TAX LAWYERS, ACCOUNTANTS, AND BUREAUCRATS? WELL, SOMEBODY HAS TO SWEEP THE STREETS AND PICK UP GARBAGE ;-)

INCIDENTALLY, I INVERTED THE QUOTATION IN MY MORNING POST; IT SHOULD BE:

"WHAT WE GAVE WE HAVE,
WHAT WE KEPT WE LOST."

Afternoon guys, up pretty early to see off the kids to school and number one off to work. After that we headed west stopped in the capital city to look at some lumber for table top I need to make. Then on down the road West to Salina stopped for gas. Now we are at father-in-law‘s house and Rosie is going to see her sister, whose birthday is today. Once we are done with that we will head on West and hopefully, be home by the middle of the afternoon.

The weather has been pretty nice upper 60s and low 70s so far. A little bit of a self breeze has been pushing against us. I’ll check in later when we get home. Have a great day.

Farmers have gone off the deep end.....had to work saturday and sunday..... and now today again...... I guess I better start thinking about my taxes due........ I'm sure its a Freudian thing..... my avoidance of paying my hard earned money down a long black hole...... but someone has to do it right?
