Most of the stone walls were built to clear the rocks off the land so they could garden.....New England is mostly rocks anyway.....have a great smoke free day....

Good morning Kitty.  Still warm mornings here at 62, see the heat turns back on soon every day. 

I thought they were building the stone walls to try to help keep livestock from wondering off but

haven't looked into it.  I remember us picking up rocks after a field was plowed and racked but

we piled them at the outskirts of the field, didn't build a wall.

Mowed the lawn with rider yesterday after we got groceries. ,  Mowed the banks and ditches about

a week ago with hand mower.  I imagine Brian has a sizable lawn to mow, hope not much banks or

ditches. 

Hope Paul is having a good time in Knoxville. 

I should get a correct size rotor cable and try to get the beam antenna put back up away from the

tree that grew into it.  If the rotor doesn't work when put up, I have a ham radio garage sale I will

be going to at the end of September where I could get a used one.  Large rotors and expensive.

Last time I had it down for couple years because it's so heavy I couldn't get it stood up.  Makes a

mess of the lawn being so large.  Figured out how to stand it up with manual winches and now we

have the backhoe also. 

Hope everyone has a good day.

Ernie.

Hi Cindi,

Nice to hear from you.  Yes, I must get my OSU (OH IO) Buckeye gear in order.  We love to watch their games.

The Indians (Guardians) are doing well.  I will also wear my Chief Wahoo cap and shirt).  Just doesn't seem right....seeing a "Guards" shirt...

Take care.  Yes, I moved to Avon Lake in 2008 to be near two grown daughters.  I just love the Lake and the area.

Susan

Hi Susan,

Avon Lake is a very nice area.  I love the Lake too.  This weekend is the D-Day WWII Reenactment in Conneaut.  They transform our beach into Normandy and act out various D-Day battles.  People come from all over the US to be in it or watch it.  I think we'll have over 30,000 visitors in our little town from tomorrow until Sunday.  They even bring planes, tanks, amphibious vehicles, jeeps and all authentic uniforms.  It is really a cool event and they've been doing it every year since 1999.

My daughter just graduated from OSU last week but she lives in Mt. Vernon now.  I think she's going to go for her PhD there too.  I love watching videos of the band (TBDBITL!!!) on Facebook.  They are amazing!

I don't think I'll ever buy Guardians gear... I will hang on to all my Chief Wahoo stuff and wear it proudly.  I just don't know what I'm going to do with my Baker Mayfield jersey...lol.  The material wouldn't even be good for a dust rag.

Good evening, everyone. 

Arrived home from Knoxville today. A nice city, a little under 200k residents. Met a cousin who lives down in Florida. We went to a nature center that was less than 4 miles from downtown. If I go 4 or even 40 miles, I'm still in urban sprawl. Food, music, and whiskey were good. People were pleasant.

Flight a little late, so time to sleep.

Good morning all.  Warm here at 60.  Welcome back Paul, everything's the same up here.

Kitty, I would like our Summer all the time but not even hotter during the Summer, like the

south at 115 degrees.  Fall is my favorite season but it goes by fast when we've seen so many.

Reminds me my dad gave me a thin leather motorcycle jacket before he died, need to get it

out and take it for it's annual ride. 

Yesterday, I ordered the new exhaust for the Subaru Baja.  Got an online coupon so ended up 

being $362 + tax so not as bad.  I phoned POR15 people and they think their paint will help the

exhaust for a few years.  I already have some here and told them that.  Won't use that much so

shouldn't be just them trying to make a sale.  Don't like seeing the exhaust destroyed and rusted

through in less than 3 years.  Bought a better one and will put two coats of rust proof paint on it.

Also ordered 150 feet of rotor cable to move my 20 foot beam up away from the tree that grew into

it. 

My granddaughter has a huge bill for the ambulance because of her seizures.  So she was skipping

college for this Fall.  Trying to check into getting it paid late so she doesn't lose her courses.  I didn't

know she was doing it until after the due date had passed.

Susan, thought you had moved to your location for your previous husband's illness.  Guess that was

the move before this one.  Both locations were in Ohio, right?

Have a great day all.  Time to get the pups out before the morning traffic.

Hi Paul, I'm quite familiar with Knoxville as my Uncle was the Director of the United Way program for years. They lived very close to UT and we would vacation at Watts Bar Lake in the summer. A nice city ~ have not been there for years. I do remember going as a child....the others would say that I talked "funny". LOL Cool here and lovely. Humidity has left. School is beginning. Granddaughter off to Kent State for her sophomore year, grandson off to sophomore year at Bay High School and youngest granddaughter to pre-Kindergarten in Bay. My daughter has been a kindergarten teacher in Lakewood for 25 years. She's counting down....until she can retire. I was in education for sixteen plus years and I always feel a bit sad at the beginning of the school year to not returning.... And we all carry on as non-smokers! It's a good thing!

Dear Kitty,

Your note reminded me of my parent's white cabinets (1960 era).  The ciggie smoke from my Dad and the gas stove left them quite yellow and difficult to keep clean.  Ugh.

Wish my Father would have not smoked all of those years...I'm sure being in WW II did not help.

A cool and lovely day here,  We have had quite a project going on......purchasing a king size bed and cleaning!

((hugs))  Susan
