Good Morning Everyone,
  Lost the first post, hopefully this one gets through.
  63* and cloudy this am, chance of showers this afternoon, high of 71 today. We picked up another 1/2” of rain here also with yesterday’s and last evening’s rain. Some of the severe weather blowing through just missed our area again…no complaints here!

  H2…best of luck tomorrow fishing with Lindsay, hope the lucky fishing pole hasn’t lost its touch!   :thumbsup:
  Z…good luck with the double duties, the OT will help make up for the fishing with a nice fat paycheck!  :thumbsup:
  Jeff…safe travels to your wife, hope she enjoys the new car! Keeping my fingers crossed with tomorrow’s diagnostic test it’s just something minor with the electrical.   :thumbsup:  Saw on the news there were some pretty severe storms up around your and H2’s areas yesterday.
  Bud…nice looking house, great price…I hope everything works out for you!  :thumbsup:  Understand the smoke has reached the Baltimore area now from those fires.
  Dave…sorry to read that bear left his mark and you’re still having problems getting your strength back from that damn virus. I’m sure you know your limits, good things take time…don’t overdo it! That’s good news the bear hasn’t been around for awhile, hopefully it stays that way.   :thumbsup:
  Steve…finally looks like a few nicer days in a row of weather here starting today, keeping the fingers crossed that will bring some of the garden back to life,  it’s in pretty rough shape at the moment.  :thumbsup:  Thanks for sharing the history on the first moon landing….brought back memories of sitting in grade school and watching it on a tv our teacher had setup for the class. Believe Walter Cronkite was giving the play by play.  ;D
  Wally…CONGRATULATIONS to your club and all the riders on the benefit ride, hope the momentum carries on… fantastic!!  :bow: :clap: :thumbsup:  Also congrats to you and Mr.WW on your trip, glad you had a nice day out on the big lake and beat the skunk…thanks for sharing the picture!  :clap:
  Marv…congrats on landing another tree job, hopefully you see some comfortable weather soon in your neck of the woods! Must have been nice having the whole range to yourself….how were you hitting?   :clap: :thumbsup:

  Got my lawn work completed yesterday, still leaving tractor tracks in some areas, but it is what is, lol.
  We’ve been watching a doe and her fawn come out on neighbors property for about the last 2 weeks, they’re usually out about 7:30pm. Unfortunately, last evening around 9pm, we heard a pretty loud bang and the doe got whacked by a car. The neighbor called us after the sheriffs department to report the accident as the doe was out in the middle of the road still alive but in rough shape. The vehicle that hit it kept on going apparently.
  Before I made it out of the house, another similar bang, guy driving a truck didn’t see her in the road until the last minute and you know the rest of the story..what a mess. A fairly young sheriff shows up a few minutes later and he’s like totally not into having to deal with what is laying in the road. So I went and grabbed some rope from the house and we got her off to the side of the road. Sadly, while we’re doing this, we can hear the fawn calling for the momma. Have been looking to see if the little one has been out near the road, but haven’t seen it yet, I know it’s close by.
  Now to try and explain it to my 5 year old granddaughter who has been watching them with us each evening..just a simple pleasure taken away unfortunately.
Oh well, hopefully the little fawn makes it through with another doe.   Cawfee’s still on…
  Have a great day all, be safe, best of luck to those fishing!

I take the ratings and cut those in at least half.so a -60 boot would be -30 if your lucky.only boots i think are rated close to true are mickeys and bunny boots.muck arctic pros rated to -60 is a crock.mine cracked at 10f.

Mid 60's to start the day. Headed to the 90's again next week. At least the smoke from the wild fires in the west and Canada have lessened the suns intensity. That is all one of the head guessers has talked about for days. I need to ask him if he can find out what year it was when we had brown snow in western Michigan back in the 50's. It came from a big dust storm in Texas.

It took the wife to a bone density clinic yesterday. The doctor said she was laid off for two months last year. She remarked on my back brace when she saw it. I showed her how it worked and she was impressed.

IFF I thought of Capt. Jim and his many trips he made when he moved. I knew you would be having to do the same thing when you were planning on moving.

The house next  door to us has sold. They are downsizing from 3'000 SF to 1'000. The woman told the wife they are going to have a sale to get rid of stuff. She said that the wife could come over before they have the sale. No way will I go over as I have no use for her husband.

I played Marv the other day. I went to the neighbor on the other side with my pole saw so the gal did not have to worry about hitting the limbs on a white pine when she backed her motor home into the yard. Shortly after she and her husband moved in she came home to find her husband had passed away. She is a good neighbor so I have no problem helping her out. I still need to take the rest of the tree down but that can wait.

The wife's knee pain is way better. Now it is her back that is the problem. Between her  physical therapist and her working on her leg the swelling is going down.

Time to get on the move and see if I can get something done before it heats up

Every one have a good day.

Good morning everyone :bow:

61 degrees for the time being. It sounds like the smoke from the Canadian wildfires will help to keep things under 90 today. The bad news is there is an air alert if you have to go outdoors.

Dave....sorry to read you are still being plagued. Bet wishes you can finally get over the crap :thumbsup:

IW....hope you can get the lawn finished today :thumbsup: I have to go out and whack some bull thistles and nettles that are sprouting up on my little Mojave Desert I call a lawn.

WW....Excellent news on the benefit ride :clap: :clap:

h2l.....best of luck to you both on tomorrows fishing trip :thumbsup:

I am off to the range for a couple hours then have some errands to take care of.

Hope you all have a good day :thumbsup: Stay safe and keep healthy.

Those ratings are a crock, IMO. Who rates them, and how?  The company takes a wild guess at it, as no standardized rating system that I'm aware of.
I have a couple different pairs I wear with the same wool socks; one is rated at -20, and my feet are always toasty in 'em. Have a pair of Kamiks that are rated -40, and they're junk. My feet are freezin' in an hour of wearing 'em.
