Good morning Kitty and Paul. About the same as yesterday morn, 49 here. I went on one of the runs once,
found out I was going much slower than the people that run them. I jogged about 4.5 miles every morning
before work. From 07 to 16, when I had to switch to walking, I had dogs with me. Made it a much better thing.
But a lot of pain goes along with it when your close friends die.
The wire antenna diagram is just an example. One of my antennas is hooked to our chimney like that, but I have
three wire antennas up. So 6 ends to tie off. The lower the frequency, the longer the antenna elements, so at 1.8
Megahertz the whole antenna is around 230 feet long. From 14 MHz to 440 MHz I use aluminum beam antennas
that have to be turned towards the receiving station or repeater in that area. One end of the very long antenna goes
off my property but haven't gotten in trouble yet. It does look like I can secure my compound bow to my motorcycle,
just makes it a little harder to get on and off the bike. I'm reluctant to leave anything valuable at the farm since my
brother doesn't have a will and his wife has lots of adult kids ready to swoop in. They've had trouble with some of
them already. I bought my bow just for launching antennas, I don't bow hunt.
Glad we are smoke free. I tend to take it for granted these days but it's still not automatic. Might get reminded of
that if I have to live through worse mental trauma than I have these last 15 years. One daughter at 14 years today, I
give her a congrats card every year. Kitty, Brian must be in an outdoor project by now, wish him luck. I have our
pool open but only at around 71 degrees last I looked, not warm enough for me yet. Mower maintenance and mowing
in full season.
Have a good day all.
Not my antenna but same one I use from 14 MHz to 30 MHz.
Thank you, Miss Kitty, for your posting ~
I probably need to add that to my list. I had a former PCP tell me that I should not get the injection....but apparently that is when they were using a live vaccine? I'm not sure. I had shingles when I was pregnant with my first child (age 28) It was short lived but a little scary since I was pregnant.
I guess I shall look into it. Have a lovely day. I'm off on a jet plane very soon.
Dear Sensational Senior friends and all of those who may lurk about,
I will soon be leaving on a jet plane (I'm sure that was a song once upon a lifetime ago) and head to the Florida Keys (Islamorada, if the spelling is correct). Compliments of my youngest daughter and her husband. I've always wanted to visit the Keys and here I go. Snorkeling, sandbar, KeyWest, with its roosters and six toed cats and staying at a posh resort. Just what I need.
I will see you all on the "flip side" of a week's vacay. ((hugs)) Susan
As always, keep the faith and stay smoke free!
A Northern Flicker graced our oriole feeder this morning!
enjoy your stay in the Keys and love the picture....don't forget to look down at the sand ....might see a seashell....
I still have all of yours from beautiful Sanibel. I hope you saved your collection!!!!
Have a great vacation, Susan.
Yes, a John Denver song. Though I think made popular by Peter, Paul, & Mary.
Good morning Susan, Kitty, Paul, and all. 54 here this morn, pretty warm when still May.
Hope you enjoy your trip Susan. Wife also had shingles during her first pregnancy but we
were both much younger.
We have a moth flying around in front of a camera, looks like flash the super hero. I'm off
to the farm this morning after exercise. I managed to get the bow and fishing arrow secured
to the bike yesterday. So can get my brother's new wire antenna put up. He's so proud of it
but it's just a wire antenna with a bunch of tuning coils in the coax connector. It's ok, we all
have built something up in our minds that wasn't what we gave it credit for.
I still have to bend the fan blades out on the Allis Chalmers tractor. They still hit the shroud in
front of it sometimes. At least the old damaged hydraulic drive parts didn't hit the radiator when
they came lose last Summer. Finding parts for a 1976 tractor isn't easy, got most of the parts from
a guy in Wisconsin. A place in PA had some of them but wanted twice the price. I see there's another
shield I can install on the tractor they removed before I was working on it. Then I will probably take a
couple sweeps around the field.
I was also thinking of Peter, Paul, and Mary. I had the album in the 60s. Also had Puff the Magic Dragon.
Had forgotten about John Denver though.
Pretty much fixed the bullseye caused by the stone from the truck on the highway in my windshield. Still
looks like a water spot about 1/8 inch across but I can live with what's left. Also put resin in a bout 5 other
spots fragments hit and didn't cause bullseyes.
Enjoy the day all, great weather, 72 and partly sunny here.
You enjoy also, Ernie. Similar weather here.
Good morning Paul. 57 here, warm. Will take the pups out for their mile soon.
Made it to the farm yesterday and managed to get my bow down there on my bike.
I had other work to do so we didn't get the antenna installed yet but the bow will be
there until I drive my Monte Carlo SS down. I had forgotten about the bent fan blades
on the Allis Chalmers tractor. I did finally get them pulled away from the shroud. So
they don't clang every time the engine is shut off. Very rugged fan, used a wrecking
bar and pulled as hard as I could. Still only got about 1/4 inches but that's enough.
Got one shield put on the tractor, there's two more when I find some bolts. All of the
cat liter boxes were so bad I just took them over to the tree line and dumped them.
Did a couple other odds and ends and had to head home.
Probably get the lawn mowed today.
Enjoy the day all.
