Good morning Susan and Paul.  All chilly mornings now, hard to believe they're back already.  I don't

know why the people wouldn't have shovels.  My daughter has bought me several different types of

snow shovels and  still have a metal one I bought when the kids were young.  I can use it to shovel

water out of the basement entrance when we get rain coming in from the south.  Also have small

round pointed shovels for digging.  We are caught without salt sometimes, right now we have 2 bags

in the basement.  I see your city is getting heavy rain while we are getting light rain and clouds.  I thought

Ian would just creep through but we're getting rain from it this morning for 3-4 hours.  Can't believe it's

still here.  Think they said today will be the end of it.  I had looked forward to mon-wed being sunny days.

I did go to the farm Friday, best weather day back then, was still a little chilly ride in the morning even

with leathers.  We got the trailer loaded up with garbage after getting the trailer hooked up to the pick up

and the lights working.  Made it to the land fill and back, have a busted tail light and I don't think it's registered

or inspected so didn't dally around town with trailer.  I pulled up behind a cop at the stop light.

Got his rider mower fixed, one side of the mowing deck had come unhooked, took me about 1.5 hours to get it

lined up and get the u bolt into it.  Probably an easier way but I've never worked on that type mower before.

Got a few other things done before I headed back here.  Some things he could do.  When my sister is there he

gets a couple things done, either showing off or afraid to do things when alone, don't know which.  I know it would

do his body and mind wonders to get out and do a small task every day.

Yes, I'm glad we didn't get the full brunt of the hurricane Paul or even drowned in it's rain if this high pressure hadn't

moved in just before it got here.  Three days of heavy rain.

Susan, I don't think the time share spew will be much.  You've been through a lot and you have a strong mind.  Will be

like getting groceries for you, just routine.

Have great day all.

Hi Ernie and gang,

Just completed about three hours plus of Fall gardening chores.  It's not my favorite thing to do but necessary and certainly better than waiting until Spring to cut things back.  Has anyone ever grown Sweet Annie?   Mine is everywhere this year....a fragrant small yellow flower.

Just opened the computer to pay bills and here is my message from yesterday.  Yikes.  Computer not even shut down last night.

Enjoy the day.  Sunny here!

Loved the picture of your birthday cake, Ernie.  Lots of thought and love went into that!  Do you have a birthday coming up soon?

Enjoy the smoke free day everyone!

I never heard of Sweet Annie. Had to look it up. We had a small garden when I was growing up, I dabbled with vegetables.

Judge finally hit 62. I think the pitcher grooved it for him. I guess he deserves it. I don't think the media did him any favors my cutting to every at bat the last two weeks and asking him how much he's thinking about it.

Still raining here. Should end late tomorrow.

Good morning Susan and Paul.  I also don't know the flower.  We didn't dabble in vegetables, our family was large

and our garden was hugh.  A lot of work to take care of it and harvest.  I've had no urge to have one since, will just

get them at Wegmans.  A part of my younger years I have a tough time being sentimental about. 

I didn't understand the judge very good.  After reading it closely guessing it has something to do with baseball.  At

first thought the Pontiac GTO Judge was 62 years old.  My brother in law has a GTO he's waiting on the paper work

on in a divorce but it's spoken for.  With tuition, eye surgery, and the market crash I can't afford any luxuries anyway.

I still have the Mont Carlo SS to maintain, Mont Carlo Sport Coupe to build, and my Baja is over 15 years old.  I need

to coat the rear of the chassis with POR 15 paint next couple days while it's warm, with two coats.  The undercoating

brother in law put on it after welding the frame rails in is gone, lasted one Winter.  I'm not certain about coating the rest,

probably at least one coat.  The salt and their chemical spray are like acid to a car.  We are usually stocked pretty good

before a storm but eventually head out. 

Was in JC Penny's with wife and saw a jean jacket on sale, finally picked it up.  Also, got a credit card there so about 70%

off.  Went back and got two pair of Levi jeans for the Winter.  Jeans I have are thin, great for the Summer.  Ironic, only

reason I remember having a jean jacket when I was a teen is my dad making me take it off to eat every time we sat down

to eat dinner.  Often in those years my parents were separated so it was just him and me.  It's still a little hard for me to

understand why he cared.  Something to do with his past I'm guessing.  They aren't much different than a shirt.  Maybe it

needed washed and I, a stupid teen boy, didn't realize it.  I wouldn't even remember siting down to those meals if it weren't

for that.  Probably many days I got wrapped up in riding dirt bikes and stuff with friends I didn't make it back for dinner.

I was the youngest, perfect match for my wife, the oldest.  I read later in life.

Cocoa and I's birthdays are coming up in Winter.  Cocoa had such an influence on my life, will never forget her. 

Enjoy the day all, effects of Ian are supposed to move out to sea today.

Good morning, all.

Yes, Ernie, I meant Aaron Judge broke the American League single season HR record with 62. The major league record if the players who used steroids aren't counted.

Good morning Paul.  Saw the baseball record later on the news.  I don't follow sports much.  Used

to follow motorsports some.  Now I just watch a race here and there.  All the drivers and owners I

watched have retired.

With the cold weather closing in I finally got to painting the underside of the Subaru Baja, mostly

the back half where we replaced the rear subframe and welded in frame rails last Fall.  Just had

brother in law spray it with undercoating since the Baja was 70 miles from home and weather was

getting cool then also.  Had to clean it with grease / oil remover, then spray it with metal etch, then

put the POR15 on with a brush this time.  Doesn't work as well when I spray it.  Biggest problem is,

have to get it off your skin with solvent fast or stuck with it for about a month.  Skin doesn't like the

solvent.  Have that coat finished, not sure if I will apply a second coat today.  Second coat is easy.

We aren't getting our birthday parties in this year, wife is busy with her eye surgeries and decorating

the house for Fall. 

Hope all are doing well.  Ian finally moved out, saw NYC still getting rain late Wednesday but hope it's

moved away from there by now.  Looks like the next hurricane went directly west and won't bother us

in the north.

Good morning Paul and everyone.  Glad Ian moved out to give you a nice day in the city. 

The new low has moved in here already for Friday, temperature already dropping before

daybreak.  To bad Ian stuck around and made those 3 days cloudy and some rain.  At least

we weren't flooded. 

Coated the hood of the Monte Carlo SS with POR 15 urethane yesterday.  Try to keep it from

cracking any worse during the Winter.  Also coated a dog statue we have, was going to put it

up where all my friends are buried.  Coated an old bicycle we have, planned on putting it out

front with the sled I have out there.  Had some extra that I mixed so used it on the bucket and

shovel on the backhoe. 

Think I saw Kitty post on facebook with a picture of Sanibel Island damage.

Have a great day all.

Ernie
