Good morning Susan, Paul, and all. Cute picture of Finn. Guess I never did a search for a name on here.
I just use the drop down and click on Seniors thread. This pc is slow o get on the internet but once on it's
ok. Laptop at my ham radio station is faster and it's not hard wired like this one, it's on wifi. I eliminated
lots of applications I don't use trying to find what's running when I don't want it but I've only improved it
some. I have a 2 terabyte hard drive and I'm not even close to one terabyte yet. This pc is about 12 years
Worked on my bike windshield again with the 5 step process again but didn't turn out that clear. Think I
have to use the buffer and rubbing compound and start over. The little scratches are a pain in the sunshine,
which is most of the time I'm rolling.
We went to Agway and got the powder stuff for ground bees. I tapped on the ground there, with the pool
net handle, to find their entrance and put the powder on the ground about dark. They stung Brandy 6 days
before she died so I feel less for them than I do for most animals. Also Princess back when I walked her at
lunch times. My arm still burning and itching this morning on the 3rd day. Pretty sure we will find more here
and at our daughter's this Summer.
Supposed to go blueberry picking with our grandsons today. will text our granddaughter but she's been super
busy. Usually take take some down, with grandchildren, to the older lady that lives alone down the road. Her
husband helped us some, after the tornado, back in the early 80s.
Finn is so cute Susan.
Have a great day all.
Cocoa's parents, Princess and Buddy, many years ago. With granddaughter.
All the dog pictures are cute.
Insects are pests, but they are also pollinators so good to have in that sense.
Enjoy the day all.
We are headed to historic Lakeside Hotel and the Marblehead area. A beautiful day to travel in Jim’s 2015 Mustang convertible……top down, I guess.
Lots of land for the bees ~ just not In YOUR domain!!!
Good morning Paul, Susan, and all. Warm morning at 61 here on the mountain. I don't
know if ground bees pollinate, know most bees go from flower to flower but not all. My
arm still burning and itching today, think ground bees only sting that lasts so long.
We picked blueberries yesterday, 16 pounds think it was. Gave some to our granddaughter,
she didn't make it but showed up later. 18 year olds with busy lives. Gave a container
to the old lady down the road, her husband helped us some after the tornado back 83-84.
I put aside some to take with me to the farm this morning to my brother and his wife. My sister
is there part of today, will be the first time I see her this year. She isn't live in caretaker there
anymore and haven't happened to be there at the same time yet this year.
I couldn't get the bike windshield straightened out in time so I swapped with the other GS1100GK
Suzuki. Might get it right later or might have to look for a used one. Can't even come close to getting
a new one for 1982 bikes. Just got that installed last eve to ride today. Very expensive to drive the
Monte Carlo SS with it's 383 stroker engine. Had to inject 14% more fuel than the base program calls
for to keep it from spark knocking. Engine damage would be much more expensive than gas prices.
Takes premium and would like racing fuel. I ran racing fuel back in the 80s in late model stock car
racing. Stayed in first gear up to 100 mph on the circle track.
Glad you're getting out again Susan, I remember the convertible. We had a 67 Camaro convertible
back in the 70s.
Must be hot in the city Paul with all the concrete absorbing the heat. I got in the pool last eve after
installing the windshield after picking blueberries. Just have to make sure I keep a hat on so not get
too much sun on my head.
Take care everyone.
Good morning, all.
Enjoy your trip, Susan.
Yes, Ernie the concrete serves as a receptor for the heat. I go into the office on Thursdays, and it was stifling out yesterday. But it's summer so I can't complain.
Good morning hope all have a wonderful day....from smoke free for 15 years....Kitty
Congrats on 15 years Kitty! An accomplishment. The forum back then seems a world apart from now.
Nice Summer days. Only 2 minutes before the alarm I woke this morn.
Getting oil spots beneath my Baja in the driveway. Tightened the oil filter and drain plug, hope the plug.
Had an oil drop on it. I put a new ring gasket on it every time I change the oil so shouldn't leak but hope
that was it.
Went to Wegmans yesterday to get the ingredients to make a blueberry pie from some of the berries we
picked. Stopped in to Penny's salon, wife wanted her hair trimmed. I wandered around the mall. Saw
a Chevy pick up with a snow plow at $54,995. Price increase I guess. Think lots of things will have to come
back down some if they want to get the sales volume they look for. We haven't used any of our savings since
retirement and won't be taking any out until the market recovers. Can make do with what we have.
We got the two tractors down to the lower place at my dad's farm and I used the brush hog to clear the area.
Brother got confused about the markers to bury his cats so he gave up and we didn't get that done. The basement
was flooded in about 4 inches of water so good bet the water pump is running constantly. I pulled the main
fuses out on the pole and tried to find stuff to step on to get across the basement to the beaker box. Shut off
the 3 double 220 volt breakers and one single that went off the pump room. Also went around and pulled the
plugs on freezers and frig, except the one they have the cats stored in. Checked the light on that freezer after
putting the fuses back in on the pole. So the cost and the danger should be taken care of. I doubt the cats will
be taken care of as long as brother and his wife are alive. Never thought I would be involved in a mess like that.
Gotta go walk the pups. Have a great day all and congrats again Kitty, so glad you made it to 15!
Good luck with the flood and your brother's mess, Ernie. I guess it gets challenging over the years.
Have a great day everyone.
Good morning Paul and all. No rain this morn so should be able to walk the pups. Saw a
morning with a chance of rain, Monday or Tuesday. We're supposed to get an inch or two
of rain tomorrow.
Paul, you might not have been here when I started helping brother and his wife. They
destroyed their residence having about 90 cats living with them. They got most of them
rehomed after that but still have 16 or so. So now have damaged dad and mom's old farm
house and the trailer beside it with these cats. Brother didn't take care of his Diabetes for years
so he has a hard time walking and his sight isn't great. His wife is almost unable to get out of bed.
When trying to get the power off saw someone has broken in and dumped his totes and knocked
over a shelf unit, rest of the place is so bad don't think they even ventured into it. Don't think there
was anything left worth taking but they might have found something.
Brother sold the barn side of the road, 83 acres. I didn't find out until 3 days before the contract and
he wouldn't sell it to me because he had promised it to them couple years earlier without telling anyone.
So better part of my parents farm is gone.
About 17 acres left from the farm. Had hoped to change it into a small horse farm and maybe purchase
30 acres or so behind the farm where they haven't run a septic system through. They ran a septic
system through parent's farm before he sold it so it's worth about twice what brother sold it for and the
neighbor that bought it isn't dumb, not selling it for what they bought it for. Daughter was going to move
and build a house there and I was going to rebuild the two upper residences but probably would be to far
into the future. I will be to old to do all of that. Would have to build a horse barn also. The lower residence
brother and his wife ruined is to far gone to rebuild. I hate to do anything there.
I have a transducer that I could have measured the AC current at their old place but would have taken all
day. Would have to be in the flooded basement with the power on, just impossible and dangerous. Brother
isn't capable of making decisions and thinking logically.
I can't imagine living in NY City. I've only been a brief visitor there though. A coworker many years ago was
Christmas shopping there and someone broke his car trunk open and took all the gifts. Also, a different
time someone on the street wanted his camera at knife point. He gave it to them and they stabbed him
anyway. Don't remember what part of the city, was decades ago he told me about that stuff. Think he had
a relative there. I know from tv shows that some parts of the city are worse than others.
Oh, almost forgot. Today would've been my parent's anniversary from 1946. My dad met my mom in 1945
the day he got home from ww2. He was searching for his brother that also just got back from the war. I hadn't
known what tough lives they had. Pieced it all together later on.
Have a great day all, great weather.
Double wedding, mom and dad on right, his brother and wife on left. 1946.
