Thanks for the coffee!
More rain today.
The access to the SASS range is currently impassable, so practice day on Saturday is tentative.
On the way to work, I saw pairs of animals being hearded toward a large boat.


Was there a man with a long white beard?

Made it out to mow the hay-field yesterday.  Edged the lawn, and trimmed the hedge in front of the den window.  Think I overdid it a little after having been flat on my back with whatever I had the last week, but itís done and Iím still alive.

Supposed to get rain tomorrow, so Iím putting off restarting the sprinkler system.  There is a chance of snow and slightly below freezing Monday and Monday night.  Hope that doesnít screw up the chance of cherries this year.

Had homemade Nachos last night, and planning on oven baked cod for supper tomorrow night.  Still thinking about Saturday, but it will probably be on the grill, whatever it turns out to be.

Sunny day in Houston.  Me and mine are fortunate, and didn't get any flooding...though I know some that did.

Up early - for me - this morning, thanks for the coffee.

Got some wind yesterday in the afternoon, but it didn't temper the warm, got to over 90 at the peak in spots around the valley.  Looks like today will be a similar event.

Later.

Coffee and tea water are hot.

The rain we were supposed to get yesterday was more like a dribble.  Will be looking at mid-week before turning on the sprinkler system.  Could get below freezing at night until then.

Morning y'all.
Thanks fer the coffee.

My left hip is complaining from yesterday's yard work.

Johnsonville brats for lunch.

My Lee Auto-Prime broke last night. I've used it for at least 15 years. I got it used. Ordered a replacement from MidwayUSA.

'Tis 41 and sunny. High of 63. Could get rain tomorrow.

I bought one of the new auto primes a few years ago, hated it. Bought another one of the old style round ones online and use it instead.

I could use some lumber from those trees-got a barn that needs some more rough sawn boards for siding. Got a lot of trees I could use, but no sawmill.

This is supposed to be new and improved for 2016.  Roll Eyes I'll see if it is worth it.
There is a guy with a portable sawmill about 2 miles from here. I had him saw up a bunch a couple years ago.

Mine broke last year. I also got 15 years use out of it.

Bought an RCBS this time.

I haven't broke an auto prime (yet). The first one I got was used, and it turned out the tray for small primers was not in the box. Bought another online, now I got one for small and one for large. The "new, improved" square tray one I got would constantly either drop primers on the floor, or else try to seat them sideways.

Feeling pretty whooped this evening-tore out 300' of falling apart fence and installed new- all while the remaining Houdini cow laid 100 yards away under a shade tree watching me. Not finished yet, but the posts are drove and the woven wire stretched and clipped on the top wire. Messed up by re-using the 6' posts, though. Better soil there than some parts of the farm, drove some posts too deep, no room to put on a top barbed wire. Before I finish I'll have to get some longer posts.
