Good Morning Kitty.  Flowers sound great.  I took the paint down to the

farm to paint the flower tractor tire down there but I left the paint in

unheated garage so it won't be ready to use when I go back.  Have to

work on a lawn mower or something.  Not going today because it won't

warm up until past noon, maybe tomorrow.

Walked about 12 miles yesterday but no elliptical later on.  Probably walk

in the afternoon today after it warms up a little.

Have a good day.

Good morning Susan.  Glad you are healing from surgery.  I have

a bad knee but hope the glucosamine keeps it away for a good many

years. 

Cold snowy morning here, probably wait until tomorrow to go help on the farm.

Enjoy the day.

Good morning Kitty.  We have one line of rain coming through here

today.  Farm doesn't have it in their forecast so hope to get on the other

side of it before it develops.  Got delayed by rain the other day so I'm

a little behind down south.

Brandy and I went on our short walk.  Then I went over to daughter's

house and worked on her greenhouse and lawn tractor.  Had my sawsall

so I could cut frame pieces and strengthen it.  Pieces from the frame of

my collapsed tent used to rebuild her greenhouse. 

Most of the maintenance is done on her lawn tractor for this year and

I already fixed the battery charger system on it month ago or so.  So they

won't have to put my electric charger on it this year.  It was aback here so

I think that wire was probably broken when I got it.  I only used it a couple

times a year so I probably put the charger on it anyway.

Stew and bread sounds good.  I hardly ever eat any kind of bread anymore.

Because it turns to sugar.  Ate wheat for a while but can't trust what they put

into it.  I eat wife's stew when she makes it.

Enjoy your day.

Good morning Kitty.   Didn't get much sleep for yesterday and didn't manage to

get a nap until towards end of day, so exercised but not much else.

Take care of garbage today.  To wet to mow the lawn, was going to do it yesterday

but started raining at the end of walking.

Looks like we have a gap in the rain to take our walk later this morn.  Glad you're

busy, Hope enjoying life.

Good morning Kitty.  Glad you're happy with your new property.  Sounds

like of things are fixed there.

Brandy and I got a short walk in.  Was very warm after the rain. 

Did a little more to daughter's greenhouse and garbage.  Mowed our lawn

here at home.

We will pick out flowers to go around the pool soon.  Older daughter started

that when she lived here.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  The yard sounds nice.  We haven't gotten to much yet.

Picked up lots of stones where we did the excavating last year and mowed the

grass. 

We had coyotes all over when they were putting the millennium pipe gasline through.

They bothered Cocoa and got to close sometimes.  They were everywhere for a

couple years after the pipe line was finished, then thinned out.  Now I rarely see

one that isn't a flash and gone.  Don't remember when I saw a bobcat, decades.

Think I saw one briefly at daughter's place about 10 to 15 years ago.

Brandy got a slight limp again so she only gets about 0.5 miles walk now.  I go ahead

and walk another 7-8 miles alone, not as much fun without Brandy.  Brandy is sad

not going.

Rained all day here yesterday.  I managed to clean out the carburetor ports on our

lawn tractor.  It wanted to stall last time I mowed, had to pull the choke out to keep

it running.

Should have our pizza night and Mother's Day gathering tonight.  Wife wants to go see

her mom on the weekend.  Happy Mother's Day Kitty, case I forget.
