Good morning Susan.  Very cold this morn at 26 here.  Next few mornings a little warmer. 

We get heavy rain Friday into Saturday from another hurricane, coming into Florida's east

coast this time.  Predicting flash flooding for us, so we will probably get it on the side of

this mountain.  At least we aren't down in the valley where they get flooded up to their

ceilings.  We built lots of drainage, couple burms to keep water away from the basement

area, and we have two large sump pumps in one window well.  One pump quit but I got it

going again.  One is automatic with an electronic control and the other is switchable with

a wall switch in the house. 

I will probably take the dogs out soon.  If it seems to cold for them I will turn around.  Belle

is still limping from raring with Chloe last Saturday night, but getting better each day.  It

usually takes a week to get completely better from past experience.

Was fixing a 12 vdc cigarette lighter socket in the Baja but a insulating washer in it cracked

and broke so had to go to the salvage yard and get a replacement.  I was using a portable air

compressor in it and they put a fusible link in the back of the sockets besides the main fuse

for the circuit in the fuse box.  I usually use both of them for a ham radio and GPS.  Found the

socket I needed and will probably get it replaced today.

Glad Finn is getting some sunny days to lay out in. 

Hope all are enjoying the week.

Hi Ernie,

Thanks for sharing your Dad’s picture. A nice looking man. Where did he serve?

My Dad was drafted in 1941. Served in the Army Corp of Engineers~ I believe clearing forests for airplane landings in New Guinea and the Philippine Islands. Came home after the War with malaria. He rarely spoke of it ~ many black & white photographs.  Can’t imagine young men of today going off for four years!!

 Sunny here. Expecting rain and snow by the weekend. We may golf tomorrow.

Good morning Susan.  A little warmer here this morn at 33.  I think that's the only photo of my dad in the

Army.  Sister tells me he enlisted before he would've gotten drafted.  Photo is probably after finishing training,

that's the only photo of me in the Army, during training.  Dad was in D-Day, Ardennes Forest, Battle of the Bulge,

all of the battles in Europe and Germany.  I was only on alert several times, never went to war. I was in at the tail 

end of Vietnam.  After seeing the battles my dad was in, so grateful not to have been in one.  Saw them on

"Band of Brothers" on TV.  Sorry your dad got so sick.

We get the rain from the hurricane, 3 or 4 inches, before snow.  Predicted, hope less rain Friday.

My dad was looking for his brother and met my mom the day he came home from war in 1945.  Married July 17,

1946. 

Gotta get ready to go walk the pups.

Hi Ernie,

Very handsome!  You were blessed not to have seen more war time.  I know of several young men, drafted after we graduated and who lost their life in Viet Nam.  It was a difficult war!One last sunny day before the bottom drops out.  Sounds like the storm will come up your way.  Batten down the hatches!  
 

We may try and take Finn to a new self wash facility today. His real appt is near Christmas.

Good morning Susan.  Enjoyed the last warm sunny day here.  Walked Brandy's sister, Dixie, and her friend Charlotte,

up in Morrisville, NY.  My last drive with the Monte Carlo SS before I turn in the plates for the Winter today.  No ticket.

The dogs enjoyed their time out.  Got to see cows, horses, and other dogs.  Walked our dogs before traffic here but Belle

has to come back early until her bruised leg heals completely. 

Finn and his friend look happy.

Looks like our rain will start around 9 AM but not heavy until this afternoon.  Hurricane was weak at landfall,   Surprised

it's making it this far. 

Enjoy the day.

Ernie

Dixie and Charlotte.

Dear Kitty,

Age is just a number ~ most days, I TRY to think that way.   Happy Birthday to your Son… I am not sure what age you are now eligible to collect Social Security?  62?  65 or 66?  They have changed it several times……

Will you and Brian be in the bands of rain from Storm Nicole?

Hi Ernie,

Nice looking pups!  What is the closest city you are located by ?    I was exploring my weather map and it looks very green (rain) in eastern PA and western NY!!!   Light gentle rain here.  

Finn did very well in the store self wash.  We used the full body harness and he readily walked up the step.  Very high tech ~ choice of four shampoos that are automatically dispensed with the warm water.  He tolerated it!!  Best experience… only $13.00 out the door  I will be using it more often between his cuts.  Full Salon cuts ~  two or three a year, but they are $90.00 plus 20% tip!!!   
 

Carry on my friends  Hi to Paul… haven’t seen him post lately.

Good morning, everyone,

Illness aside, staying active physically and mentally helps keep you young. Young people get sick also. Unfortunately, often during wars. But God bless all those who served.

Headed to the ophthalmologist. I've used store bought reading glasses the last 10 years, but I don't think they suffice anymore.
