Good morning Paul. 16 here around midnight. Probably to cold for the dogs later this morn.
I grew up on a farm surrounded by farms. Think only one of them is still running. I feel at
home just about anywhere if I see a farm. Especially if there's Holstein cows, black and white.
Our road was named Crooked Creek but now changed to Charleston. We had a dairy farm
until they required bulk tanks to store milk. Guess investing in one was to much for our little
farm. After that my dad bought calves and raised them until they were ready to become milk
cows, then sell them. We still had to grow hey, oats, and corn. Still baled up hey in the Summer
and we had a hugh vegetable garden that took lots of work. Thawing out drinking cups for the
cows. We always had one milk cow for our families milk. I remember churning butter when I
was young. Our road was paved but was a 40 mph speed limit, now 50. Much more traffic.
Got my bike into the basement yesterday before the storm arrives. Got the new cover on the
Monte Carlo SS. Set two mouse traps in it.
I see the soccer reporter died of a burst Aortic Aneurysm. I came very close to the same end
6 years ago. Caught it just in time, was 5.1 cm last time measured. Had expanded a lot in 6
Walked the dogs around the lawn and field twice yesterday.
Have a good day all.
Farm in the 80s.
Was Dad's barn 2020, I think.
Love the farm Ernie....love the rural ....we live on a dirt road next to a horse farm......
Batten down the hatches…. It’s all coming your way!
Good morning Kitty and Susan. Warm 33 here this morn. Still snowing, not sure how
much we have. The graph on here says 6" so far and 2" more soon. My wife's family
is surrounded by the SUNY horse farm at Morrisville, They're beautiful. Not on a dirt
road though. I take it easy through there driving. Girls leading horses to their pastures
cross the road. There might be some guys there but think it's 99% girls.
We got more ready for the storm yesterday morning. Stuff I should've already done. We
had a bicycle locked on the front deck for show with an old sled. Sled is still there. Using
bike lock I got when I was a kid. Probably from the Western Auto. Got the new cover on the
Monte SS, old cover is on the backhoe. Covered the windshields on our vehicles with covers
our daughter got us. I texted daughter and reminded her where I saw her windshield cover.
Got the branch extenders off the loader in case I need it for snow removal.
Talked to my brother at the end of yesterday on the radio. The guy that takes him to the eye
doctor for shots every month is still planning on making the trip today. The hospital is closer
to us than them. Takes me 7 hours of driving to go get him and take him to the hospital from
there, plus the 2 hours for the appointment. Lucky a local guy to drive him. I only did it once.
Have a great day all. Looks like Paul got all rain down in the city. That's the rain front that's
holding the snow storm over us.
if it snowed overnight rain washed it away.....33 here this morning....hope everyone has a peaceful day
Yes, heavy rain today. Clears up tonight.
Enjoy the day all
we got a lot of rain till noonish and then it stopped....might get a little snow tonight.....
Good morning all. 32 here this morn. Snow has stopped, was still snowing on and off when
I went to bed. I used the loader bucket to clear the driveway. Probably could have used a
shovel but was wet heavy snow. Clung to the branches, wires, and such but not as bad as
the end of last Winter when it broke branches everywhere. Very wintery here, guess you
have warm ocean air there also Kitty. We have the opposite, when we don't have a snow
front moving in like this one, we get winds blowing across the lakes that brings us lake effect
I worked on my boom box yesterday but didn't get it fixed yet. Think it's a fractured solder
joint on the main circuit board but I can't get to the underside of the board easily.
Think there's a sale that will get me out to the stores on Saturday to get two gifts. Don't like
it now that we're retired but things are geared for the working people. Wife got the last ordered
gifts done yesterday, they should make it. Many people we don't see until after Christmas anyway.
My brother was in Sayre, PA yesterday for the shots in his eyes. Hope I never have that. Sometimes
I feel like I'm trying to hold back a tidal wave keeping diabetes in remission. Someday I won't be able
to exercise 3 hours every day. Then to the meds and maybe after that on to insulin. My brothers feet
are swelled discolored and he can't feel them. Just barely keeping his eyesight. Has fallen and hurt his
ribs several times so that they hurt all the time. But doing very well for the time being so hope for the
Enjoy the day all.
Hi Ernie and Kitty and Paul,
Just a few snowflakes here and there....nothing really. Sounds like you did a lot, Ernie to prepare for the storm.
I gave Finn a stuffed toy and he likes to tear them apart...take out the stuffing. Lo and behold, he vomited up a few pieces of it.....even though I sat and watched him destuff it. Now, diarrhea and some vomiting. We had plans to go out for dinner, but will stay here to keep an eye on him. I fixed him some hamburger and rice for later if he feels like eating. My bad. No more stuffed animals for him!
Cold here, may watch the Browns vs. the Ravens. Not much hope for the Browns.
Merry Christmas..... Eight days away I am so done, done and done. Susan
Good morning Susan and all. 26 here. Lots that I did in front of the storm was for the whole Winter
season. Some should have been before the first smaller snow but had work to do in the calmer weather.
Subaru and stuff. Got the Baja when I stopped smoking so it's going on 16 years and I got it in January
so it was out in the first Winter.
We usually take the stuffing out of toys after there's a rip that starts leaking the stuffing out. We let them
play with the outer part, isn't much left to some of them but doesn't take much to make them happy. They
are both 1 year old tomorrow, went by fast for everyone else I bet. So will get them toy to play with for their
birthday. Wife puts meat she cooks on the dogs dry food every day.
I went out today to get wife and grandson a gift, that's the end of shopping for me. Only shopping I didn't do
online. Traffic was very bad on the other side of the highway and river, where all the stores moved to. Some
that were over here at the mall just went out of business. JC Penny's owns their own little part of the mall so
they're still here, that's where got my wife's gift. Health clinics and restaurants are moving in place of stores
that left. Dick's sporting goods is building a big store here. I'm glad of that because I rarely go to restaurants,
they put lots of ingredients in food to sharpen the tastes to get people back but they aren't good for diabetics.
I didn't think they would get replacements when they wouldn't lower the rents for all those stores but they seem
to be getting them. Lot's left, big and small. Sear's, Macy's, Tops and Bottoms, Forever 21, Bon Ton, etc...
We are certainly wintery here, wish you had the snow if that's what you want. Guess it's pretty but everyone will
still have a good Christmas because it's about the seeing people you love and the spirit of the season. Still time
for snow before the day.
So grateful for granddaughter talking me into stopping smoking that last time and this forum for helping me to
keep the quit, also Chantix.
Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.
