Morning y'all.
Coffee is hot.

Got the boiler connected and running. Need to purge air out of some of the lines.
Back to verk today.

'Tis 23 and cloudy. "Blustery. Partly sunny with a chance of snow showers in the morning...Then cloudy with snow showers likely in the afternoon. Little or no snow accumulation. Highs in the lower 30s. West wind 15 to 25 mph with gusts to around 35 mph. Chance of snow 60 percent."

Morning all.

Weather is a foggy 25, with 15mph winds.  Definitely driving my sorry butt to work.  Roll Eyes

As Buck would say, I have the "keys to the kingdom" today.  I don't get anything special for going in alone, unless you count having to do twice the work in the same amount of time.  But that's why they pay me the big bucks. Tongue

It spit a few flakes this morning and that was it. Sun's out now, but no warmer than this morning. easy day so far, my associate is burning his personal days this week, so I've got the keys to the kingdom through the weekend.

On another front,SIL's back in the hospital. Did it to herself, wouldn't eat or drink much and played pick and choose with her meds. Result, dehydrated, potassium level bottomed out, and a u-tract infection. Also drove the wife to a high BP episode,had her to the ER yesterday and follow up at the Dr.'s today. On BP meds now, and coming down slowly. She's to check it several times a week for the next month, and to call if it stays above 160 consecutively Roll Eyes

Who knew it's so hard to hang four flags on a pole? Huh

Anyway, today was sort of interesting.  Part of the reason is, I got a new rifle. Grin  Traded my mom's Ruger 270 for an original M77 in .243.  She's wanted one (243)  for years, but hasn't bought one.  Well, now she has one.  Next is a Vortex Crossfire scope to replace the Wally world Tasco that I tossed on it.

I always liked those Ruger M77s, but never owned one. Maybe because they look like a civilianized M1917.

My 19 y/o daughter went in the ditch after the first snow storm of this winter. It was a learning experience for her.

The M77s don't have a dogleg bolt.  Wink

The boiler auto purged by the time I got home from verk last night. But, I woke at 01:30ish to a cool house. messed with it for 3 hours before plugging in space heaters and went back to sleep. At 07:45, I called the heating company where I bought the boiler. The tech walked me thru to get it heating again. It was setting that needed to be changed for the way I have to zones wired. So, we have heat again from the boiler. The owner of the heating company, wife's cousin, was surprised I got it hooked up already.

Leaving this afternoon for MN for the weekend.

'Tis 20 and cloudy. High 23.

Went to an Uncle's funeral in Tecumseh Nebraska today, lived a long and good life, seen some relatives I haven't seen in a while and did some locker plant shopping and bought $40 worth of brats, ring bologna and wieners, beef sticks and the lot.  New place in Tecumseh, spotted it going in and went back, good beef sticks and got some cheese brats, you have to love it though.   Grin

Almost as good as "Joe's Meat Market, Grocery, Pharmacy and Liquor Store" in Loup City Nebraska I often hit to stock up coming back from the GAF Muster.

Morning all.

Yesterday was kind of weird.  My grandma didn't put the coffee pot back together right, and it shorted. Shocked  It's toast.  So I went out to the shed and got the percolator and started t make some coffee, but apparently she doesn't like percolated coffee.  Personally, I kind of prefer it, but don't the time in the morning.  ANyway, my mother was able to find a small electric pot and use that, but I'm still a little confused about how adamant my grandma was about that coffee. Huh

In other news, I hope to go shoot that new rifle later in the afternoon.  We'll see how it does.

An afternoon cuppajoe might hit the spot, thanks.  I've sort'a been layin' low for a spell, in the doldrums; Baby Girl's mom moved to Calif. and took my Baby with her.  Actually, Bella was pretty excited to be going, but she has lived a good part of her thirteen years with us, and going off like that has left a big hole in our lives - we miss her a lot.  Cold here, relatively speaking, forties to low fifties most days, and El Nino has us getting a lot of cloudy days and some rain.

Anyhow, just thought I'd drop by and wish all of you a most happy new year.  017 has gotta be better than the past eight.

See y'all next year.
