Good morning Kitty.  Yesterday was 100% sunny here but I didn't

get down to the PA farm.  My daughter is making a stone necklace for

my sister in law and wasn't finished.  I will be going today regardless.

Supposed to get rainy and cold after today.  Even snow over in the Catskills.

I did get daughter's lawn tractor back together and the charging system

seems to work.  Didn't have a good multimeter with me to check it though.

I had forgotten to pack new LEDs on my bike for my parents graves.  I replace

them once a year.  Ones with dragonflies or butterflies that change colors every

few seconds.

Have a good day, nice to be outdoors more.

my two favorite insects....butterflies and dragonflies....will be lovely   we are enjoying another totally fogged in day with possible rain later...can't plant or work outside again...Brian did get lots done yesterday....I wanted to go out with him later for a ride around one of our pretty lakes and we may still do it but with the fog what will we see? I hope you can get whatever done that you want....I keep saying the two things that I want/think I should do to occupy my time better...Paint and Piano....

Good morning Kitty.  I did get down to the farm Wednesday.

We got a lot done, also put new LEDs on the graves, and got those

2 necklaces to my sister in law from my daughter.  She liked them

lots, not many people paying attention to her.

Another rainy cold day today but gets warmer after this.  Got the

oil changed in my bike yesterday and couple other things.  I will

probably need new tires before inspection in June.

Have a good day.  Painting and playing piano sound good.

Hope Finn is healing well.  Summer is on the way.

Hope your knee is healing if you got the surgery.

Good morning Kitty.  Was just listening to "A Pocket Full of Sunshine". 

Nice you're enjoying time with your daughter.  I think rebuilding the

farm house and building this horse farm will be what I trained for all

my life.

Supposed to get up to 50 today.  Enjoy the day.

the sun doth shine....at least at the moment....I love that you want to rebuild the farm....could we see a picture of the setting of the farm?  


From: Cocoa60


Good morning Kitty.  Think this is the last arial photograph of the farm,

probably in the 80s.  There's another building on the house side now.

Brandy and I got back to our walks yesterday, rained for 2 days prior.  She seems

a little stiff.

Took apart a little amplifier I have in my radios and sprayed the controls to clean

them, working steady now.  Painted the top of my mower deck the day before and

did the maintenance on the tractor for the season.  I still need to paint the bottom

outdoors when we have the next nice day.  Deck is starting to get holes in it, 25 years


Have a good day.

Farm in the late 50s.  Good morning Kitty.  I escaped the rain on my ride

down to the farm yesterday.  Got mower deck mounted on my brothers

large tractor and we got his smaller older mower running and mowed the

lawn with it.  Have a tire to fix on the new tractor.  I will take a tire plug with

me next trip so we can fix it on the tractor.

Took care of lots of garbage in PA yesterday, have to help daughter with

garbage today.

We have a birthday party for one daughter this week, Wednesday I think.

I'm cutting back on coffee some, it's helping with my glucose numbers.

Talked to sister in law that's dying yesterday.  She remembers our daughter

catching tadpoles in the swamp on the farm back in the 70s, now she's 46

years old.

Glad you're enjoying Spring.
