Well we got some rain yesterday.  Not even much a drizzle most of the morning, then started to come down heavy about midafternoon.  It did quit just in time to put brats on the grill, but the beer, brats and tater salad had to be consumed inside.

Getting’ close to a hard frost overnight, so the wife has started bringing in some of the patio plants.  Now I’ve got to find places around the house to put hangers to put them (It was easier when she just had annuals outside).  At least these are all in hanging pots and don’t require any digging.

Major, H&R used to make a Handy Gun set in 20 ga, 30-30 and 22 Hornet, all in a take down case, always thought that was the coolest, would make just a wonderful truck gun.

About 30 years ago, helped a friend get a good deal on one of those H&R in 22 LR that sorta kinda resembled a SA.  Unique gun, should have had documentation done on it and kept it for myself.  Gun belonged to Jesus, bought it from his wife, (not sure it was quite leagal Grin)  ex worked with Jesus's wife, see Jesus was in the hospital and she needed the money, and she really didn't want Jesus to have it when he got out and got rid of the long sleeved coat.  (No Jesus was not Mexican and didn't pronounce it Hey-zus  Roll Eyes)

Wife is moving plants in as we speak(type). Had frost already, but she still had some on the porch, likely to get too cold for them to stay there soon.

We’ve had the frost on roofs and cars exposed to our clear night skies a couple of times, so the potted stuff is all huddling on the patio under the large pine tree in the backyard.  However next Monday overnight ambient temps are going to be below freezing, so this weekend will be time to decide what we want to save and what gets replaced next year.  Luckily most of what’s left outside are annuals, so they get sacrificed to the lack of places to put them.

White puffy cumulus clouds in a deep blue sky today, with a high of 54 and a warming trend through Saturday, and then we start cooling off.

Got a by on cooking tonight.  Planning on grilled pork steaks with a side of stuffing tomorrow.

Cooking for left overs, did a ham yesterday, cooked pintos in the ham bone from the last one, this one will go into something.  Pintos are re-fritoing in skillet now for burritos, got a whole hog worth of ribs in the smoker ( a gift from someone who don't like ribs but bought a hot)  will smoke them good a couple hours and tomorrow will go in the lectick roaster with some homemade sauce, don't have time to baby the 10 hours as is proper, and will still be good.

As far as I know that set ain't made, good inexpensive rifles, I know some who own just them for deer rifles.

See when the beefed up the frames they dropped the hornet and 30-30, both those calibers make sense in a truck gun.

I fell in my backyard last Friday in the rain. I have been on a cane since then. I felt well enough to go out for Supper last night. I had CFS, mashed garlic potatoes, green beans, and a salad. I had Peach cobbler for dessert.

Take her easy out there.  I slipped on the two step stairway from the garage to the house a little while ago.  Screwed up my left wrist and hand (nothing broken).  Took forever to get back to normal, just don’t recover as quick as I used to.

I guess once we break 60, we have to be careful not to break anything else.

Dinner has been prepped waiting on "She Who Still Works" to get home before I start the coals in the grill.

Coffee's on...   Happy Halloween 

Was gonna prep the boiling oil, Rita hid it.    Roll Eyes

She's off to go buy candy and other errands, not allowed to hand out candy either, after the one year she went with the kids and left me in charge, I thought it was funny, the kids and parents thought it was funny, Rita got home and didn't. Roll Eyes


Had on the nightshirt and cap, dog on a leash, when they came to the door and hollored Trick or Treat, I looked at them and said, "you woke me for this?"

No Trick or Treat here... too rural ... to far between and back to folks doors  Undecided
We used to take Kelly to Melbourne to make the rounds with her cousins...

Now she inters Pet costume contests sponsored Pets Mart  , has wins or places most every year.... She puts a lot into it.
Last year, She won a years supply of dog food from Purina, and Photo session for a road side Billboard.
She donated the food back to an animal shelter, and she & her dog were on a Bill Board for 6 Months.

She entered one at Disney's Celebrations last week , she won dog food , pet toys and I think some $$

We don'thave many kids live in our neighborhood, but we get 150-200, young ones, minority kids what ever that means, nice kids, figure they come over because they live in bad neighborhoods to the east of us.   So we pass it out, most the neighbors do and are home, mostly an over 40 area we live in.

Over the past twenty or more years from when I came back to this house to live, at the most there have only be twelve kids on one night time that have shown up for trick or treat. Almost doesn't make buying treats to hand out worth while. The past two years there have been None!
It seems most Parents these days take the kids to the Mall's
I have Microwave Pop Corn bags for tonight should any show up.
I'll just have to wait and see.
My best,
 Blair

We get very few trick or treaters where I live.  I expect even fewer today as the weather isn't cooperating.  Miss Red was clever and bought Skiddles...which I don't like, but the kids seem to like them.

Very few Trick or Treaters around here either.  Very few kids in the neighborhood.  We’ve got candy just in case, and I do crave a pumpkin every year just for the fun of it.
