Morning all.

We have clouds out here today.  Supposed to get wet/icy stuff falling from them at some point.  I'm going to try an stay inside if that happens.  I'm really fighting some sort of bug right now, and being cold isn't likely to help.

Still floating just above freezing here, so the white stuff isn't going away very fast.  At least we haven't got anything new.

Got a new toy (a tablet computer), so I've been futzin' with it for last couple days.  Almost got it setup the way I want it.  Just a little more tweaking to do.

Stuff’s ready for the wakeup call!

Sunshine and temps in the low 40s for today.  Should make some headway on the white ground cover.

Morning all.

Forecast is mostly sunny after the fog burns off, high of 60. Shocked  I will say, I'm ready for some sun after three straight weeks of rain.

Heading off to the gun show today.   Hope to find a 257 Roberts AI, or maybe another Winchester '94.  Not that I have money...  Roll Eyes

In other news, I think I'm going to have to replace either my front fuel pump or my transmission...  The noise was coming from around there, But I don't have time to diagnose it today.  We'll see.

Up early this morning, so I thought I’d throw the pots on.

Might break 50 today.  That should make a dent in our ground cover.  Already seeing some green showing through.

Morning all.

Thanks for the wake-up juice Russ.  Roll Eyes

There is a definite reason I don't bring money to gun shows.  Reasons like an original Starr DA for $800, and original Sharps .54 for $1000.  Or a pre-war Winchester M70 in .257 Roberts AI for $950.  All I brought was  $1.50, so I entered a drawing for a Henry 22.  Roll Eyes

Whatever has been going around is finally catching up to me.  I woke up this morning unable to say anything.  Cup and a half of coffee later, and I can at least rasp now. 

Got the "Keys to the Kingdom" today.  Boss has to run to the city to pick up a car from the shop (the one car in the entire fleet that is reliable and has 4x4... Had the t-case do an impression of Hiroshima.  One of the gears literally exploded and dented the sides of the unit. Shocked ), So I've got the office to myself.  Then I get to walk a mile home. 
In the rain.
Uphill. 
Barefoot. 
In the snow. 
While running from dinosaurs.

Nevermind, that last part was my dad as a kid.  Tongue Shocked

Had something weird happen at work tonight, glad it didn't happen about midnite last night.  Was alone, no one in the store, no one in the lot, caught a movement outside as a car came up to the pump, looked and it was a very nice white Ford Pinto station wagon, paid with a card, and left, had Bi-Centennial plates on it (Antiques can use the year of plate)  Glad he paid outside, don't want no ghost in the store, had to be a ghost, I thought all the Pintos were dead and gone.    Grin

Morning all.

It's been a while, Tom.  Good to see you back. Smiley

It's official: I've been creamed by a virus.  I've been fighting it, but I finally lost.  Fever of 101, no voice, no balance, and no lack of mucous.  Also, no sick days. Embarrassed   I worked fifteen minutes extra yesterday, so I think I'm going to call it a day fifteen minutes early today.  That will have me leaving before anyone else gets into the office, so I don't spread it.

Though, today is payday.  Not that I made that much, but still. Roll Eyes
