Good morning Kitty.  Rained last eve here so didn't water pine tree.  The

food and insect killer I got for it, just spreads on the ground around it and

soaks in with water.  So I water it twice a day.  That whole section that is brown

is dying, would be partly brown in October but not in August.  We have another

one that isn't sharp green so I cut the brush and small trees that were under it

yesterday.  Moved most of the brush away from the tree, was hot working.

Will probably get some evergreen food for it.

Don't think I will be able to get the barn back because my brother sold it to the

neighbors heavily discounted, like they didn't run a septic line through there.

Hard to say what will happen in future generations after I'm gone, might get

it back somehow.  If we expand the land with the farm house, it will probably

be behind the house where they didn't put a septic line.

I have a picture of dad in front of the barn but don't think it's on this computer.

We would all love to see a picture of your house after it's finished.

My wife made fried squash last night.  I had enough to eat but had one slice.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  We got rain Friday but just cloudy Saturday.  I have that insect killer

and food under the pine tree but I have to leave the hose and sprinkler up there, 150 feet

of hose.  I have grass seed and potting soil a few spots in the lawn so hoping for rain there.

I think my wife uses raw egg and flour and puts the slices of squash into it, then fries them.

So it's as old as me and probably much older but can't ask her anything for hours.

I cut more brush and small trees away from our pine trees, dragged some up out of the lawn

by hand because the lawn isn't dry anymore, the tractor would mark it all up.

Cleared a path to my welding equipment to get out my welding helmet to take down to the

farm.  Didn't see my brothers helmet and don't want to wear his anyway.  I have to weld nuts

onto the the three sheered off bolts so I can reach into the little space and turn them out.  On

the diesel tractor on the farm where the pump attachment to the front of the engine has come

apart.

I got ready to change our water filters but waited until no more showers and didn't get back to it.

I run the bath after I change them but no guarantee we won't get that black water after.  I put a bucket

underneath and flush the pipe out while I'm changing it, down cellar. 

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Finally got the sediment water filter cartridge replaced yesterday.

Still have to do the charcoal cartridge to do and then the 5 stage filter countertop.

I scraped the lose paint off the railing on the front deck and painted it yesterday.  The

side deck needs done also, maybe after Ida has passed by.  We can see the front deck out

our bay window so considered it more important. 

Still trying to kill the bugs eating our pine tree.  The stuff that sinks into the ground isn't working fast enough.

I sprayed them with whatever bug killer I had left in the sprayer last night because I could hear them chewing

into the tree after dark.  I will try to find some insect spray for pine beetles today, seems hard to find now.

We didn't get much sun yesterday but happy we aren't in the fires or floods. 

I got to see my granddaughter night before last but had some work I had to get done part of the time she was here.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Cooler morning at 60.  I'm still younger and hope to do

lot of work for the future generations getting the horse farm ready.  Time catches

up with all of us, I'm not getting away with anything. 

I went out and got some insect killer at Agway, also got some more of the insect

preventative to spray the ground around all the other trees.  So I spent the day in

poison.  Changed my clothes and took another shower after but still spent the day

in poison.  I could still hear them eating wood in the tree after dark, hope it stops.

The deck railing looks much better than the peeling paint it was.  Won't have to spend

the winter looking at failing paint out our bay window at the birds eating at their feeders.

I changed one of our water filter cartridges, still have to go out and buy some charcoal ones

for under the sink so I can change that one.

We have no wine bottles.  I did like mixing cinnamon gin with cider in the Fall but it messes up

my glucose readings so need to let it go. 

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Rain from Ida reaches us in the next couple hours.  Supposed to be

little over an inch if it doesn't veer north more. 

Had to get my daughters mower started yesterday, we parked it away from the bees nest

and parked it so the nose of the tractor was pointed uphill.  Guess the gas drains back into

the tank especially if the tank isn't full.  So I mowed her lawn, was about a foot deep so it's

still a mess.  Parked the tractor down hill and made sure the tank was full. 

Moved a lot of brush out of out lawn that I cut away from the pine trees, then mowed our lawn.

Our tractor starts a lot easier since I got the carburetor fuel bowl gasket in place.

I'm getting stuff ready to go down to the farm Thursday.  Bought the fine thread nuts I need to

try to weld to the broken bolts on the deisel tractor engine so I can back them out.  Also bought

high grade bolts to install the new hub adapter when I get it.  A guy in Wisconsin sells them but

is out of stock until later in the week.

I ordered 8 security cameras to install around our property.  Someone dinged our two late model

cars with a screwdriver or something similar 8 or 10 times each.  I can't get them repaired until I assure

they won't do it again right after they're fixed.  They didn't damage the Monte Carlo SS probably because

it was already damaged from the blizzard.  It's already being fixed and need the cameras up when it's back here.

Have a good day.
