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!

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.

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.

Good morning Kitty and all.  64 here this morn, no heat wave today but guess we're getting

ready for it.  I mowed yesterday also, rider and push mower.  I still have a small area on a bank

to do because the battery ran down on the push mower.  Sharpened the blade on it so maybe

will last longer now.

We have some flowers, the Lilacs have come and gone already.  Didn't see that baby Robin living

under them yesterday, maybe he has flown.  I saw him fly about 8 feet one day.

They usually have sweat peas from a greenhouse at our farmers market the second weekend in

June.  I put it on our calendar every year because I like to eat them uncooked.  Sometimes I buy

extra and take some over to the grands.  I can't find many later in the season when they ripen in

gardens. 

Have a great day all, some rain here today but not all day.
