4:30 AM on the east coast....just got rousted by a cool nose , an indication Jake needs to water the plants.
Funny how they know just the right spot to apply said nose to get an electric jump start to you day.

Jake having now sniffed every brown blade of grass we have left ( no rain don't you know ) I'm up (5:02 AM) might as well stay up 
would have stumbled in to do my own constitutionals by now anyway  Roll Eyes

Made it back from Atlanta in one piece!  The city was lush and green and already “HUMID” for this desert rat.  Traffic was OK even with one major freeway closed due the fire collapsed span.

Major:
Hit a local Outback in Atlanta for supper Friday.  Had the two rock lobster tails, plus plenty of bread for dessert.

The NRA Annual Meeting was great (close to 82,000 attendees).  Got to see Trump’s address live.  Security was pretty tight Friday with a bunch of Secret Service agents scurrying around, but they were very unobtrusive.  One local TV station reported it was strange the NRA wasn’t allowing concealed carry at their own convention.  Someone needed to tell them it was the Secret Service that stopped the onsite carry and it was only on Friday.  Saturday I didn’t see any metal detectors anywhere.

The lawn gnomes didn’t show up while I was gone, so I still have sprinkler heads to replace, and grass to be shortened.  I’ll get to that once my feet and legs catch up from all the walking over the weekend.

Morning all.

It's supposed to be sunny and a high near 90 today. Shocked  That's how it was yesterday.  I'm about ready for this "heat" thing to be done with.  I want 70 back!

I got a good cut of pork loin at the store yesterday.  $7 for 4lbs.  I cut that thing in half and cooked one last night with a rub.  There isn't any left.  Roll Eyes

As for today, I'm going to rake the chicken yard, walk the dog/throw her in a pond, and cook up those frog legs.  I've never had frog legs before, so I'm taking suggestions on how to cook them.  I was thinking just fry them in Crisco (don't have any lard  Undecided  ), but if anyone has a recipe, I'm all ears.

Rain is coming to the Reno area tonight and most all of tomorrow.  Made me decide to put off the sprinkler head replacing and lawn cropping until Monday.  That’ll give my knees another couple days to recover. Already got a reprieve yesterday when “she who must be obeyed” decided to paint the retaining wall in the back yard.

Coffee is hot.

Just finished fencing in another 300 yards of lane for the horses. At least it wasn't pouring rain this time. After some brunch, I'm gonna work on the shed floor.

Our rain was late getting here yesterday, then wasn’t much as they were saying it would be and then went away quicker that it was supposed to.  All in all it gave the lawn a nice wetting without causing any of the localized flooding the were worrying about.  Now we head into several days of 70’s before dropping into the 60’s.  Nothing but sun for the next 10 days, they say.  The sprinklers and mowing are creeping back into my to-do list.

Most riding mowing is done caught up for now. Fixed a flat before and after the mowing. Combination of junk tires on the mower, and mowing recently cleared thorn fields. Still have some rough spots requiring the push mower.
