Morning guys, wind came up about 5am like a hurricane. Not blowing quite that hard now, but still blowing hard.

Work in the shop today. Rosie headed north to pick up GGD.

Morning guys... A beautiful morning here too. 60 now (9:30) headed to nearly 90 this afternoon. No wind now but they are saying it is going to howl this afternoon.

Rosie and I are headed north about an hour to install the 'barn doors' I built for a brother knight. Then on to a KofC meeting up there.

Sorry for all your troubles Tommy.

Matt, did you have to remove a section of the dash to install the Double Din radio? Seems I remember they said I would lose something...maybe the ash tray/lighter port part of the lower dash and move the HVAC control down into that position.....

The Polara is looking good Marc.

Have they found anything on your car yet, Gris?

Hey guys, been really busy.... again, or is it still?

Had a beautiful day here, but wasn't able to capitalize on it.

Matt, what did you have to remove to get the radio installed in the dash like that?

Happy BD Marc.

Morning guys... up and around this morning. Headed back over to the church to finish up the window trim on the north side. Can't do the south side yet as the glass guys haven't installed the thermo-panes on that side of the building. But trying to get as much done as possible for the Easter service. That should make the parishioners happy to see some progress.

Not too bad this morning, 34 now and headed to the mid 7-s. Thia afternoon we will go over to the 'city' to watch Leo run at his track meet. Being a college runner now we can't justify going to most of his meets as they are hours and hours away. This is the only one we'll be able to make and the only home meet they host.

Better get around and get going.

Hey guys, up early and off to the 'city' to see our new dentist. No work, just a recon mission to see what needs to be done... Luckily, just cleanings for now.

Back home and off to install the stained glass panels at church. and got a few pieces of trim, I'll go back tomorrow to finish up the trim on the north side windows.

It was downright cold when we headed over to the 'city' (19) but warmed into the upper 50s. Tomorrow upper 60s and then a string of 70 degree days ahead.

Morning guys, woke up to snow and blowing and 22 degrees. Yesterday, low 70s and there was a tornado a few miles east of us, today, near blizzard conditions. Welcome to Kansas.

I'm busy in the shop cleaning up. Still have some things to do at the church and may try to get started on those things. I've got cabinet materials coming this week for another job, so I've got plenty to do.

Morning guys, chilly, cloudy and windy here. Temperatures not too bad actually, but the wind makes it feel cool.

Been busy lately.

I wonder the same thing Gris, by that picture, it appears that that particular EV is offsetting all of its' zero emissions claims.

Morning guys... It was a busy day yesterday. Got up early and went to Wichita (4 hour drive) met #3/husband (from KC) and picked up granddaughter and brought her home for the day. Have to take her back and meet them today (another 4 hours each way). The other grandma (in KC) refused to watch her for the evening and she requested to come out and visit us.

Took the Caddy, but on the way home it developed a nasty noise in the drive system. Doing some research, it might be a common problem with the transfer case.... I believe it is covered under warranty. I'll take it over to the Cadillac dealer tomorrow for diagnosis. Not a happy camper right now. So that means we'll be taking the pickup to Wichita today.

Weather was at least nice yesterday, today is supposed to be a bit windy.

Hope you all have/had a good weekend.

Hey guys, thought I posted Tuesday, but apparently I didn't get it submitted.

Cooled off big time last night. mid 70s yesterday, today upper 40s to low 50s and the north wind blowing.

I needed to go visit my sister and build a gate for her back porch to keep her black pooch on it. See what I did there? so we got up early and headed north to do that today. Finished up by noonish Mountain time and headed back home. Quick stop at home and then on over to the 'city' to pick up my new glasses, I can see again.

Pretty tired, need to head to bed pretty soon.

Hey guys, not a great day for me. This DST is kicking my butt. Woke up and saw it was 7am...felt like 6, but couldn't go back to sleep.

Then went up to church for a mini retreat that was scheduled for Lent. Had a hard time staying awake. Now back home I'm thinking about a nap, but don't want to screw up tonight's sleep.

Yea, that's one of the pictures I took.

Hey guys, fairly nice day here today. Got up and dressed for the memorial service. Saw some former colleagues at the service. He was a good man.

Went over and installed a crucifix I built at the church in the next town over. Same church I've been working making new window frames for the rebuilt stain glass.

Hey guys, had grandiose plans for today, but very little of my plans actually came to fruition. Phone calls from one after another all day had me chasing everything but what was planned. That's ok.

Was quite chilly (downright cold) and windy.

Tomorrow, I have a memorial service for the other shop teacher I taught with for 35 years. He was only 6 months older than I, but was never very healthy... overweight, just sat around and didn't really do much, but never smoked or drank, had a stroke back in late December and never recovered. RIP Dan.

Foggy and cool this morning. We have the GGD for a few days. She was up pretty early, 6AM.

I'm headed out to the shop.

Hey guys, cool and windy today. Kept talking how it was going to be really windy over the weekend, but all weekend it was pretty nice, last night the wind started howling.

Got our taxes Friday, not good news.. Have to pay in pretty big again, even though I showed a loss in the business. Found out it was because we don't take anything out from our SS, that's going to change.

Then we headed to the courthouse for tag renewal and pay the personal property taxes, another freaking hit. The lady screwed something up and now have to apply for a new title on the Caddy and get another new tag for it. Expensive week already.

Lots of pics, Marc.

Hey guys, up and around. Made breakfast and then went out and changed oil in the Sierra. Not sure why the dealership didn't, but it doesn't matter, now I know for sure it was done and when. Oil monitor showed 20% and tag on windshield showed almost 6k, so I'm guessing those were for real. Took the oil up to school to get rid of it. Went out to the golf course, and checked model number of the cart, so I can get oil filter for it and change that in the near future.

Got church after while then watch to see if our boys can beat the other team to qualify for a state berth. After that, our nieghbor friends are taking us over to the 'city' to eat.

They said warm and windy today...warm, but not so windy... YET.

Well, got to the dealership 3 1/2 hours early. Sat in the waiting area for about 45 minutes, when I noticed the pickup was gone from where I parked it. Rosie and decided to walk across the highway to waste some time (a WalMart), so I went back to the service area to make sure they had my phone number. The guy back there was just pulling the pickup in (from test drive to verify the problem) and he said, he was going to try and figure out the problem so we wouldn't have to wait around that long. Verified my phone number and we went off. We walked around for a while and then walked down to a fast food place to grab a quick sandwich. Then walked back to the dealership and as we walked in the service manager said, I just left you a message, we got you all fixed up and you're ready to head home. Somehow, the camera was out of calibration...he recalibrated it and that fixed it. We were on the road 20 minutes before my scheduled appointment time. Small town dealership!

Hey guys, up early and off to north west Kansas. Taking the GGD back to see the other side of the family. Dropped her off and headed west to the town where I bought the pickup… a couple little problems they are going to fix, adaptive cruise and lane departure systems not working. Both are related, both systems rely on a forward facing camera which obviously isn’t working properly, maybe not something I will use, but if paying as much as I did for the truck, everything NEEDS to work as it should. Biggest problem is we have to wait. We were here at 9:30 MT (10:30) now and the appointment is not until 1 pm.

Why here so early? We had to meet the family to pass off GGD at 10CT, and this was earliest they could me in today. Remember we are 2 hours from home (120 miles). I guess that is a drawback to buying the truck from this dealership. Might check to see if they will give us a loaner to go grab a bit to eat here after while.

Hey guys, up early and off to the church to prepare for serving breakfast after Mass. Served around 70.

Chilly start, but warming right up, 64 at noon and looking to add another 10* to that for a high.

Hey guys, Not a whole lot going on. I did clay the new pickup and coat it with a ceramic coating. Yesterday, I added Vent Shades to the windows and added bed hooks in the bed. Going to sell the tonneau cover that came on the truck. It's a really nice roll up hard cover, a Retrax, $2200 new, but they take up a foot of the 5'9" bed, space I can't afford to lose. Someone is going to get a great deal on a bed cover. I hope to get $1k for it...half the price of a new one, and I be able to buy the one I want and hopefully have some $$$ left over.

Morning guys... Sunny, partly cloudy and low 40s now. Headed to the low 60s.

I'm headed out to the shop to spray some finish.

Tommy, it just amazes me how people let a $40-50k vehicle sit outside while they have $10 worth of junk filling the garage, protected from... whatever. That's quite a turbo on that pickup.....

Morning guys... AWOL yesterday. Got up early and made a 2 hour drive north to trade pickups. Nothing really wrong with the Silverado, but it was just time to upgrade. With pulling a trailer more often now, and the promise to move GD from KC back to Fayetteville, AR this summer, I just felt that I needed the upgrade. Looked around at stuff in KC when we were there last week, and found some promising leads, but then searched our local area and found more here. One feature that was imperative was, the 6.2 engine, other than that, I was pretty open. Found a GMC Denali over in the 'city', but they all have 22" wheels and rubber band tires, couldn't have that. This 22 GMC Sierra SLT Limited was much more palatable with 20s (like my current Silverado). Got there just as the dealership opened at 8, looked at and drove the truck, made the deal and was headed home before 10:30. The 6.2 is a freaking monster... way more powerful than the 5.3, and I reset the trip odometer and it showed that I got 23.8 MPG on the way home.

Today a lumber truck should here any minute, then my monthly massage and tonight we lead Stations of the Cross. Supposed to be nearly 70 today.

I hear the truck, got to go. Later guys.

Got sidetracked, sunny and cold this morning, 16 right now headed toward the low egos today.

Quality time with family. #1 has all the kids home to watch GD and GS in play. It was a good play, and most are going back tonight to watch the last night. I don’t feel the need to go again, so I’ll stay home with the dogs.

They are all going out this morning, Rosie and #3 are going shopping, #1 and her girls are going out for brunch, #1s hubby going to work out, so I’m here by myself.

I trust all of you will have a great day.

Morning guys… made it to KC late yesterday afternoon. Stopped in Lawrence to visit GS#2 at his job. Graduated in December, had this job waiting for him, assistant golf course superintendent at a private and exclusive course in Lawrence. He had just gotten off work when we got there but he took us around and showed us the course. Beautiful golf course.

The weather was sunny but a little breeze made it chilly as we made our way around the course. This morning it’s snowing.

Not a lot planned until this evening when we will go to the high school play GD and GS are in.

Morning guys... Cold, cloudy and dampish. Headed east to KC in a bit.

I hope your Dr. appointment come out OK, Gris. I hope everyone here has a great day.

Morning guys... Looks like a nice day on tap here.

Ash Wednesday Mass at noon. Need to get at least one door glued up this morning.

Dr. looked at the finger yesterday was super pleased with the way it looked way better than he was anticipating, not pretty yet though.

Good Morning ... Sunny and chilly here upper 20s, headed to mid 50s.

Going into Colorado to see our holistic dr today to refill our supplements. Then back to hopefully glue up at least one of the doors.

Hey guys, busy busy busy. No the casino was a bust. State owned, and they have them squeezed down so tight, I sat down at the first one and the second 50 cent run I won "10 free spins" (Interactive game). I thought, this is going to be a good start, as usually, every spin is a winner..... I came out with $3.20 ... WTF! About 10 spins later, again 10 free spins ... $4.15 after those two "BIG" wins I was only down about $8. Well this is shit. Checked out and went to another machine, spent another $10 and never hit anything bigger than $1.20. At that point I could see the writing on the wall. Rosie didn't do any better on her machines. Might be the last time we go to a Kansas, state owned casino. Next time we'll drive down to Oklahoma (about 90 miles) and visit the Indians, they like their money, but they aren't a tight at the state.

Worked in the shop today staining parts of the barn doors I'm building. Tomorrow I hope to get them glued up. But first we have to run to Colorado (about 50 miles) to get our holistic supplements. Then in the evening, our next to last home basketball game. So, not sure if I'll get them glued up or not.

Pretty nice day here, by afternoon short sleeves and doors to the shop open.

Morning guys... About 2" of snow on the ground and mid 20s. I don't think James is coming off the lift for the trip to Dodge City for our annual casino run. We won't be leaving until 2 or 3, but I doubt the roads will dry up by then.

Rosie has been out and shoveled the drive already. Says it's a wet snow. We'll take it, we always need the moisture.

My #1 GS has already texted me about the Chiefs. Unlike me, he's a die-hard fan. I guess I have to say "Go Chiefs". I'm sure the game will be on at the casino, so I'll be able to check on the progress.

Hey guys, cold day here. They were saying rain changing to snow by midnight....When I got out of the shower before going to church, I looked outside and, guess what? ... It was snowing! Not accumulating yet, but snowing still as I write this.

Rode out with a neighbor friend to the local gun dealer. Spent an hour just browsing through the shop. Might end up with a new gun. Who knows?

Back home worked in the shop for a couple hours before going to church.

Tomorrow is our annual trip to the casino. Kind of celebration of Rosies' birthday, kind of just a "Supper Bowl" (yes I spelled it that way on purpose) routine ... I don't really give a crap one way or the other. Even with the Kansas City team playing.

Hey guys, Started out a pretty day, but deteriorated as the afternoon rolled on.

My thumb has not been an issue other than if I bump it, it's really sore and it's wrapped up bigger than snot. Pain has not been an issue. I took some Tylenol when I first got home from having the stitches, in anticipation of pain when the deadener wore off, but that's the only thing I've had. It has throbbed a few times, but I believe that's part of the healing process. No dressing change until Monday.

Yesterday I did go over and install the last of the window jambs, that took a few hours to do. Now it's up to the painter and glass guy to do their thing before I go back and finish out the trimming.

Today, I loaded up the small pantry and cabinet for above the refrig for our retired priest, who lives over in the 'city'. Met my GS over there and he and Rosie helped me to get those installed. He was happy and so were we. Glad to get those out of the shop.

Still plenty to do.

Tommy, I know exactly what you mean. But going to the wholistic Dr. and having a very intensive blood work done and figuring out what I was missing and changing my vitamins/supplements has helped a lot with my energy level and have dropped a few pounds. You might look into that.

Morning guys... busy couple of days here. Weather is up and down, today is supposed to be low 60s.

It's Rosies' birthday today. I think she is going to help me install the last of the window jambs for the church in the next town over...I'll need a little extra help for the next few days.

Yesterday afternoon while ripping a board on the table saw, I flinched as I pushed it through and caught the end of my right thumb on the blade. Felt like I hit it with a hammer. Looked at it immediately and saw the ragged damage. I put pressure on it and went into the house and had Rosie take me up to the ER. They ended up sending me over my Dr. office, where he stitched me up... 4 stitches. Doesn't really hurt, even though/ they told me it would. Nearly 50 years without a screwup like that..it was bound to happen sometime. They have it wrapped pretty good, and I go back Monday to have it checked

Hey guys, nice day here, mid 50s and no wind.

My damn watch thinks I fall all the time. Mostly when I'm using my hand/fist to 'persuade' something into place. If I don't catch it it has called 911.

Headed over to the 'city' to take GS his Caddy back... had to put a new battery in it for him.

Morning guys... damp. cloudy and dreary here. Looks like we actually had some rain last night....we'll take it. Highs today should be near normal, mid 40s.

Not a lot on the agenda. KofC council hosting district freethrow contest this afternoon. Then #2 is having us over for supper to celebrate Rosies' birthday (actually Thursday).

Next Sunday will be our annual trip to Dodge City to the casino. Our celebration of Rosies' birthday. If it is nice, we'll take James. Hasn't been off the lift since October.

Planning a trip to Wisconsin Dells this summer. Meeting a Corvette friend from that 'other' forum. He's retiring May 1, so, sort of, a celebration of that event.

Healing mojo for the DW Gris. It sucks those things happen.

Hey guys, day started out cool, damp and cloudy. As it wore on, the clouds and dampness faded. Ended up in the mid 50s, not bad for February.

Worked in the shop until time to get ready for church.

Hey guys, day started out nice and sunny, then around noon the clouds built up and started raining. Drizzled all afternoon. We'll take the moisture whenever and as much as we can get.

Worked in the shop all day, got a lot done.

Good morning guys... pretty day here. Going to be in the upper 60s today.

We have a funeral to attend today. Friend from the church. I taught their kids and my daughters hubbys' uncle.

I'll come home and work on some projects this afternoon.

Morning guys... yesterday was a good day. Beautiful weather, low 60s and light breezes. Today is supposed to be the same.

I made it over and installed some window jambs at the church in the town over east of us (7 miles) so they can move forward on having some other work done. and then worked in the shop on some other things. More of the same today.

I'm like Tommy, of sorts, I would like to see someone else running strong on the Republican ticket, but if Trumps the choice, I'll take him over any of the demoncraps.
