Thanks Susan, we miss Brandy very much.  She had to much pain to control.

I just spent couple days on the farm and walked through the woods where

Brandy and I walked.


I've caught 5 chipmunks in out bird feeder and moved them to the road below

us on the mountain.  One drowned in the pool and there's still at least one left.

They take lots of seeds and they're building nests in the gravel in our drainage

ditch.

Good luck with your cleaning and your family get together. 

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  My brother was in the hospital for 6 days so my sister and I

took care of the property, animals, and his wife.  I tried to finish mowing that field

but the tractor broke with about an hours mowing left.  We're thinking a smaller

tractor might be able to complete it.

Think we have the one automatic sump pump working correctly and another that

can be turned on manually.  Getting heavier rain than we have in many years.  At

least we didn't get 8 inches in 20 minutes like they did in Germany, killing many.

Hope you and Brian are doing well.

Morning Kitty.  Little rain here this morning.  One eye started hurting yesterday

and still hurting today.  Don't remember an injury. 

We have our daughter;s two boys for a couple days.  Have a small electronics kit

I'm teaching the youngest one to put together.  Identify parts mount them on a

circuit board and solder them in. 

Have at least one chipmunk left to transplant down the road.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Cool morn at 59. 

Got the lens replaced in the Monte Carlo SS.  Almost a perfect fit.

Grandkids went home after 3 nights here.  Loved having them here,

 miss my granddaughter but she's older now.  Lot of time has passed since

we stopped smoking.  My granddaughter helped talk me into that final

attempt when she was 3-4 years old.

Glad you enjoyed the day, enjoy the next one also.

Good morning Kitty.  Cool morning but cooler mornings coming.  Friday I might go

on the walk Brandy and I did most. 

I had the dermatologist look in my eye, didn't find anything.  Some of the field I was

mowing was 5 to 8 feet high, most likely some polon or something burst a cloud right

into my eye.  It improves every day.

The skin dr froze about 10 spots off me and she holds the gun there 5 to 10 seconds,

hurts and sometimes she hits same spot again.  I remember having one removed

years ago and only took couple seconds.  Then I was helping my daughter move some

piles of brush into the woods and uncovered a ground bee nest.  Didn't see them until

one got my leg.  Felt like what I thought a hot branding iron would feel.  I can still feel

it this morn.

Hope Brian didn't get to hot, I was sweating outside and was before noon.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  These bees that live in the ground carry a big bite but yellow jackets

are pretty bad if I remember right.  The spot only itches now.  They really want you to remember

not to disturb their nest.

Mowed the lawn and one bank on Wednesday.  I swapped the 4 carburators between the bikes

trying to find the miss I'm getting.  Have had trouble for years but when I bought the bike over in

New York City it wouldn't even start.  It misses when it gets hot.  Have swapped ignitions, ignition

coils, different spark plugs, relay to run the high current instead of the ignition switch, different air

filters, adjust valves, etc... goes on and on for years.  I was thinking of starting an engine swap

yesterday but mowed instead.

I might try walking one of Brandy and I walking routes this morn.  Rode it on my bike yesterday,

painful.

We might get another storm today, might go to our south, not sure.  We're getting a hazy sunshine

because of the smoke from the fires but you probably are also.

Have a good day.
