I'm probably being paranoid about the virus, but make sure it is just a "cold' it was the same temp here earlier but it is already up to 54 and very sunny... same old agenda as usual.....not much....Brian is out working on his new stone wall....it is looking pretty good....maybe half done....but then lots of oversized rocks to get rid of....not sure how that will happen....hope your day is productive....enjoy
Good morning Kitty. 48 here this morn, unbelievable, but only supposed to go up to
52 for the day. Mowed most of my daughter's lawn when over there taking care of garbage.
Then was under the Subaru the rest of the day. I need to buy some more metric nuts,
forgot about a couple of them with studs built into the differential. Got some parts of
the sub frame mounted. Has to have about 6 points lined into position when the differential
is bolted up to the sub frame. Use 2 hydraulic jacks and 3 pry bars to get everything into
position and lined up. Didn't crush a hand or a finger yet.
I see the stone fences out in the woods up north where the families moved in couple hundred
years ago and built farms only to find out the soil couldn't support livestock. So some got a
little money from government and some families just left. They are everywhere, goes on for
miles and miles. I think about all the work those families did building those stone fences for
miles and miles, with the crushed fingers they would've gotten. Then just to lose it all. The
fences are still there because crops won't grow there. Once in a while I see an old stone
foundation for a house or barn. I have pictures but not transferred over to this pc. My dad's
old farm house has a stone foundation.
Wish Brian well building his wall. He should have our backhoe loader, it's just sitting while
I work on the Suby.
My wife is trying to get surgery set up to remove cataracts removed from both eyes. Looks
like it will be next year.
Hope Finn and Susan are ok.
Have a good day.

Good morning Ernie.....46 here and maybe the sun will come out....no agenda as of yet...just finish my second cuppa....hope your day is wonderful....
Good morning Kitty. A little cooler this morn at 29 but still not bad.
This is our last good weather day before the cold front moves in tonight.
I think I will have the Subaru sub frame finished today. Yesterday I went
out and found the additional hardware I needed, had to go to three hardware
stores but got it. Then did some more on the car. Spent couple hours on a
broken bolt problem but then moved forward. Glad I have one last good weather
day to finish.
I realized we haven't gone on a picnic since this virus thing started but guess it will
have to wait until next year now. I was traveling down to the farm once a week to
help out, probably one reason. Also, my granddaughter working, high school, and
Hope Brian hasn't hurt himself building the rock wall, easy to do. I have this one cup
of caffeine coffee early in the morn, all decaf after that. Causes resistance to insulin
so not good for Diabetics and makes my stomach burn if I have a lot.
Have a good day.
Watched these Corning Glass coffee makers perk all while I was growing up on the farm
My sister found one on the farm and gave it to me. So happy to have it, used it twice, first time in my life.
My dad worked at a Corning Glass factory all his life but was retired for 32 years.
Good morning.....used to live near Corning in north country NY....we are having a very windy rainy day...lots of leaves will go today...... small agenda for today....working on Christmas stuff....hope your day is great
Good morning, Miss Kitty, Miss Diana and Master Ernie,
I realize now that I am the one who has been missing in action! Sorry about that. Sometimes "life gets in the way". We diligently worked for two days to complete the vinyl plank wood floor in the dining room. I have to say that the up and down and up and down on my knees and body have resulted in a lot of aches and pains. Probably, just too darn old for all of that! Anyway, it looks lovely and on we go.... I'll try and post a pic from my cell phone.
Fall here. Color on the leaves is peak or a little past. We took what was probably our last ride in Jim's convertible Mustang last week. I had the heater on with the top down!!!
Finn doing well. He was in to the Vet for suture removal on Monday. She said she was amazed and concerned that he had lost so much muscle mass. Of course, this was while we were waiting for HER to have an opening for surgery. He is doing well. We have walked around our entire block two mornings in a row. Ernie is laughing because he would walk far more than that! But, Finn is doing well. I would imagine maybe 1/2 mile or a bit less.
I'm having Thanksgiving here. My son-in-law tells me the condo is too small and there is a DOG here. I pitched a bit of a fit since I've not had a holiday in four years. So, I am in the midst of having all of my recipes out and already doing some preliminary shopping. A cleaning gal is coming the day before so that is a plus!!
Everyone (except me...knock on wood) has horrid coughs ~ including Jim. This is both of my daughters and son-in-laws. Something strange (other than COVID) is going around and it is NOT leaving...... Most of them are on steroids or z-packs......
((hugs)) to all across the miles. I will try to be more dutiful with coming on. Many mornings I sip on coffee and wake up (that takes about an hour) LOL
Love these glass percolators.....How fortunate for you. Susan
good morning so good to see you here again....this morning is strange....we are totally fogged in....can only see out about 50 ft....no hillside yet....supposed to be yucky all day....going to daughters for lunch whole family will be there....
Good morning Kitty. We were up north for a couple days at my in laws. Was great
to walk Brandy's sister, Dixie, and her friend Charlotte, at my wife's brother's home next door to
We play board games with Wife's parents, sequence.
The Monte Carlo SS ends up spending the Winter up north. It's still not finished and now
salt will be spread on the roads.
Wife's parents are naturally older than us and their house is kept up around 76 to 82 degrees
and humidity down close to 0% with wood heat. Hard for us to adjust and then we have to
adjust back to 68 with higher humidity up around 50%. The humidity here makes it easier to
heat but its harder on older joints.
We drove home before it snowed in daylight and dry roads. We have a little snow on the ground
We still have Thanksgiving stuff out and I need to get the last of it up, maybe today. Looks like
wife's parents are coming down for Thanksgiving diner. I did get the Halloween stuff down.
Have a good day.
Good morning Susan. Glad Finn is doing well. I walked Brandy's sister, Dixie, and her friend
last 3 days. Dixie has worse joint pains than Brandy did so she can only walk about a mile,
then I go back out for about 9 more miles with Charlotte.
I have only one of the Corning percolators, the smaller one. My sister is going to keep an eye
out for one of the standard ones at our parents house. I'm very happy to have the smaller one
but it's probably from after my parents were divorced. I remember my parents jumping up to
turn down the heat after the water was boiling so it didn't boil over and get coffee grounds in
the coffee. I've gotten a reminder trying to make coffee with the one I have. Takes a while to
get the water boiling to start the peculate. I think old ones are still available but want one my
My Monte Carlo SS got it's last ride in August before the repairs from the blizzard and before
We did most of our floors in Laminate around 2011. Look forward to leaving them as they are.
Have a good day.
Dixie and Charlotte on their walk 11/13/21.
Charlotte is young and all muscle.
