Morning guys... Happy Anniversary to us. 47 years.

For our anniversary, Rosie is going to the 'city' shopping for a few things and Leo and I are going golfing. Later I'll BBQ a couple steaks. Simple.....

THUNDER, LIGHTNING, RAIN, 70 DEGREES AT 0835 AM GRISHEIM.
LIGHTS WENT OUT EARLY, CAME BACK ON QUICK.
LOOKS LIKE A TWO NAP DAY FO' SHO', GOOD THING I RAN MY ERRANDS YESTERDAY.

RE-READING AN INTERESTING BOOK ABOUT RUSSIA'S WAR WITH NAPOLEON 1812-14. HE PISSED THEM OFF BAD, THEY PURSUED HIM ALL THE WAY BACK TO PARIS.

AND IN THE NEWS:
THE NATIONAL SOCIALISTS SENT THEIR BUREAU OF INTIMIDATION TO RAID TRUMP’S HOME. THE GOAL, LIKE THE HOUSE WITCH HUNT COMMITTEE, IS TO PREVENT HIM FROM RUNNING AGAIN. THE ENTIRE PERMANENT POLITICAL CLASS IT TERRIFIED OF TRUMP.

THE BUSH REPUBLICANS GAVE US AN AMERICAN KGB, THE OBAMA-BIDEN GAVE US THE AMERICAN GESTAPO.

Happy anniversary Tee!
Marcus, thanks for the fists of fury offer, hope I don't need it. I hate people like these folks, always thought they were the sh*t. no manners, and teaching their kids/grands the same disrespect. Talked to the police captain yesterday, not much I can do about it, we all agree it's kinda funny in a way and a good one, but in this day and time , it's really not. It compromises people's property and safety the way things are nowadays. used to it would've been a good prank, but not now. He put in for extra patrol. I do have cameras but they're horrible and the batteries die quickly, it's janky and we have planned for an update anyway. I ordered two cameras over the weekend should be here tomorrow plus will be ordering a different sort of system with door and window sensors, keypad and such that will call the law for you if it's triggered.
All we want is to live in harmony with others and have peace, shouldn't be too much to ask. But if me calling the cops 3 weeks ago for people that were breaking the law and such causes them to allow me to take up rent in their mind that long to get back at me, am I not winning at that point? Arron says he's gonna buy a paintball gun and hit em when they come by lol.
The rain we were supposed to get today came yesterday - twice. two huuuuuge downpours, after I already watered probably more than I should have. Wasn't expecting rain for a couple days so I soaked stuff good. now it's really soaked but the yard is green again.

he F of F are primed and ready when you need them VB....

I remember back when my kids were younger and just starting to drive, there was a pack of yahoo's that would go out to the end of the blacktop on our road and drag race back towards us.... now nobody loves a good drag race more than I do but they would come by our driveway at 80 to 90 mph as they were slowing down.....

I called the cops but they were like yeah yeah that's where all the kids go to race... No kidding but they have lots of room to shut down and go by my place at a decent speed limit. So they showed up on patrol on Friday and Saturday nights for a week or two and that seemed to help.... then it started up again and even worse as there would be a dozen cars or so roaring past... it was mostly pickups and import stuff.... nothing cool....

so finally one night I had had enough so I took my lawn chair and some rocks and a very bright Mag Lite flashlight and I sat out there waiting for them to come by at speed.... as they were coming down the blacktop road I would start by putting the Mag Lite beam on them and some of them slowed down and as the one's that did not I would chuck a fairly small to medium rock at the side of the car when they roared by.... this got their attention with brake lights coming on and slamming into reverse to come get me at which time I would get my kids small aluminum bat and start to chase them.... I am not making this up.

my intent was to beat on the vehicles not the kids.... but they didn't know that..... they would see me coming and take off...
some of the confrontations got heated but I was mad as hell and wasn't going to take it anymore....

word got out that there was a crazy man out at the drag strip and activity fell off dramatically.... my daughter in high school said it was the talk of the lunch room. My younger kids were of course traumatized wondering what had happened to their nice Daddy...

Finally my bride put her foot down and said no more rocks or confrontations and I was to call the cops when that happened again.... it made the kids cry when I was out there trying to beat kids cars wid my bat....

So the next time they gathered I called the Sherriff Dept. and we had it set up that they would hide over the crest of a hill and clock them going by... this worked great and kids lost their licenses and parents were notified and that was it... have not had a drag race by my place in many years.... except for when I am wanting to see how one of my vehicles is running and punch it at the start of the blacktop... but I always am going slow and turn in the drive.... that is my story and I'm sticking to it..... have a safe day Guru's....

Good Afternoon CGs!

Seems to have cooled off slightly from the high temps and high humidity. Quite pleasant out there today.

Been working a lot the past week. I have a long weekend coming up and we're taking the kids to Wisconsin for a few days for a little break. Much needed r&r.

Happy anniversary to you and the wife, TB.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Box truck wouldn't start so it took the morning trying to start it. Ended waiting for a tow. Not feeling great. Not too bad but not great either.

It's been an odd summer. The rain is not visiting daily as it has in years past. Dry Florida summers are far from the norm. Saharan dust and the jet stream off of Africa has been staying south. Hope we don't get any hurricanes .... but I say that every year.


Sue was always wanting me to kick some neighborhood people's ass. What she didn't realize that I'd be the one going to jail for assault. Planning legal recourse is hard. I know. LOL

Thanks for the good wishes. Busy day... but not a lot done in the shop..

Leo and I went golfing this morning. Got out there and as Leo put his shoes on, I went over to get the cart that we borrow. The guy that works out there pulls up and is talking to me as I start toward the cart storage. They are private units with 2 carts/unit. I told Leo... "We won't be playing today, as I left the key in my bag and I left my bag on the cart last night", knowing we were playing today. The guy says "I can use the master key to open it for you." So he goes up to the clubhouse and gets the master and opens the door. Along side the cart we use, is a cart that has about 1/2" of dust all over it, and he says "I wonder whos' cart that is?" I tell him who it belongs to... a teacher who just moved to Dodge City with a new job, and he says "I wonder what he is going to do with it?" and I tell him "I've been wondering that all summer." With that in mind, I sent the guy a message asking him. He sent back "Good question, I'll let you know." About 10 minutes later he calls and says he really doesn't have anyplace for it where he moved to and says, I should just sell it. So I ask him how much he was thinking and he told me he had a trailer to haul it around and the rent for the unit is paid up for the year as well. I ask about the price minus the trailer. And he shoots me a price. It was a very reasonable price, so I told him I'd talk to Rosie and let him know.

So Leo and I finished up our round and came home and I tell Rosie about it, not knowing what she would think. But she said right off, "I think you ought to buy it". So I call and make him an offer for the whole deal at the price he offered the cart only and he countered with a price in between, so I told him I'd take it. He tells me the keys, trailer and everything was at his folks place and to just take the check down to his dad and he'd get everything for me. So, I'm the proud owner of a "new to me" gas powered golf cart. We went out to clean it up and run it around some. Leo says "Well, grandpa, I guess this makes you 'really' retired now."

If golf carts made you retired then I'd be "retired" already.



Enjoy the new addition tee.
