Good morning Kitty and all.  Glad you slept well Kitty.  We had hail and thunder storm, so I'm

awake very early.  Maybe get back to sleep in a while.  Have rain for the next 6 hours so can't

walk the pups.  6 am would be late for me but I go to bed early to get up before traffic.

Our kitchen faucet sprung a leak.  I had just installed a new counter filter cartridge so that might

have caused it.  Sent the cartridge back and ordered a new one.  Lucky Moen sent me all the parts

for the faucet and it's fixed now, an expensive faucet.  Even sent me parts I didn't need.

Tried to find the bracket I would need for passing shift down in my Monte Carlo SS.  Not having a lot

of success but might be able to build something from whats available for the newer fuel injection

systems.  Guess it never worked right and should've fixed it long before now.

Got the lawn mowed on Friday with the riding mower.  Trim needs done but put it off, use the push

mower for banks and ditches and hard work in 90 degrees. 

We will probably go visit wife's parents sometime in the next couple days.  Lot of traffic on this holiday

weekend but we might brave it.  I will probably find out why father in law is jump starting his riding mower

and attempt to fix it, maybe just a battery. 

Pups are doing great, still very rowdy. 

Have a great day.


Almost a year since we lost our Brandy.

Good morning, everyone. Enjoy the Fourth weekend.

76 degrees at 6:00 here.

Good morning Paul and everyone.  76 is a warm morning, think the highest we've had this year in AM was 69

and drops some by 6 am.  Warm in the city from the day before I guess.

We didn't travel yet, don't know when we will visit now.  Sanded the bucket on our backhoe loader, cleaned it

up and painted it with John Deere green, on the inside.  Inside needs another coat, then will do the outside. 

Brother's backhoe loader has holes rusted in the loader bucket. think it's 20 years old but mine will get there.

Still trying to figure out the kickdown cable on my Monte SS.  Looks like the travel is about right from idle to

wide open throttle but it's not working.  So still thinking and looking.  Only got to talk to one guy at Lokar but

the kit they make for my fuel injection raises the injector body up and inch and my air cleaner is already hitting

the hood.  It's a skinny air cleaner and I just had lots of work done on the hood.  Couldn't get through to tech at

Edelbrock and they don't support my old injection system so might not say much anyway.  Waited about an hour

on the phone Friday and got close to 5 PM so let it go. 

No rush to get the pups out on their walk, not much traffic on Sunday morning. 

Hot nights in the city, huh Paul.  Stay cool and enjoy the holiday weekend also.  Doesn't seem the same after being

retired for a while.  We probably won't go to fireworks.  One of the neighbors does quite a bit of fireworks and the

pups could have a hard time alone.  Cocoa used to go and hide and shake the whole time.

Enjoy the weekend all.


This is Belle, other one was Chloe.

Yes, Ernie the nights have been hot here. I don't think I'll attend the fireworks this year. They are not enjoyable to dogs at all

All good with me.  South Street Seaport last night.

Good morning Kitty, Paul, and all.  Warm morning at 68, probably should change into shorts for our walk.

We were up in Morrisville for the 4th, closest fireworks was a private one at a campground half mile away.

Don't think the pups noticed.  One got sick for a night and Carol stayed up most of the night.

I got the garden tractor going, several problems to track down and fix, besides a new battery.  We played

sequence for some hours, hot in there for us younger people.  Don't look forward to being cold when we

get older.  I was sweating and my father in law went and got a flannel shirt to wear.  They're lucky they burn

wood for heat, any other source would cost a fortune.

The pups were tied to a run outdoors a lot.  They wanted to get to the chickens, ducks, and turkeys but the

birds learned quickly to stay back.  They live next to the SUNY college horse farm, horses are very pretty.

Seaport is pretty Paul. 

Cheese cake sounds great.  I resisted eating blueberry pie up north but had a few chocolate chip cookies.

Took Brandy's sister and their other dog for walks besides ours.  We unloaded a hay wagon into the loft of

their barn the keep all the birds in for bedding.  Been many decades since I handled that many hay bales. 

Took some Fix a Flat to repair daughter's tractor tire when we got back.  Only light rain so mowed for a while

so the tire would seal up.  Grandson and I couldn't find the leak in the tire with a water hose last week.

Have a great day all.

a beautiful sunny day here in CT;..hope everyone has a wonderful day

Good morning to Kitty and everyone.  Humidity starts rising today before tomorrow mornings storms.

Just hot and humid today.  Did some of the lawn trim with the push mower yesterday morning, try to

finish it this morning before the days heat arrives.  Some ground bees found me at our electric pole.

Think they only got me once on the arm but my finger is swelled slightly, maybe got me through my

glove.  Maybe they leave the stinger in and thats why their stings hurt worse than other bees, and


I should get some other stuff done after the lawn today but haven't made plans. 

Hope you all are doing well and have a great day today.


Still finding bolts to finish installing shields on the Allis Chalmers I replaced the hydraulic drive on last

Summer and this Spring.  Someone cut and baled up the field this year to use for mulch so our tractor gets a break.
