1/2 a year nearly gone , Schools out, Summer starts ( that was while back for us in the Tropics ) Hurricane Season starts today (Oh Joy ! ) Love Bugs ( another joy to behold )  Roll Eyes
HOT  Humid ,  Afternoon thunder storms , still hotter,  still more humid , Mosquitos....

what was it I liked about Florida again ? 

Course we have no State income tax (yet) no State mandated vehicle inspections (used to, did away with those 35 years ago ),  we have AC .... mild Winters,  and CCW.

but I digress .... Wink  Happy June ,

I take it, you mean rain has returned to the enchanted land of canadians and assorted blue haired ladies?   With the hurricanes and humidity t guess the tax thing is the draw there.  Ithe climate is not appealing to me, it hasn't got me interested.  Even as a young man spring breaky thing wasn't a must do. Note i tried living in Pennscola area for a short time. ...... I am thinking Indiana .

Happy June y'all- stay hydrated

Speaking as a former Flordidian, I can honestly say there are some things I miss... all the pretty gals on the beach in skimpy bikinis, and Cuban food and espresso.

I don't klnow Junebugs, but Ladybugs are a nuisance here. They swarm and get everywhere, including coffee. And they bite! Since when do Ladybugs BITE???

Probably not Ladybugs, but the imports that look like ladybugs, the Asian beetle. Body can range from orange yellow to a cream color, and they're very aggressive.

AHHH .maybe a wash for some.... personally, no income tax is big PLUS.... we can & do dodge the Big blows ... sometimes ..

Blue hairs are everywhere ...we have no monopoly there  Roll Eyes
Retired Yankees yes .... Ca-nooks yes ... humidity,  hell yes...

Lightning central you bet....  but we also have one or two 38- 40 degree cold snaps a year for a day or two....

Yes Sir,  Rain is back...but way short of what's needed.... I expect at lease one if not 2 major named storms this season
I predict Miami Ft. Laud. & the Keys will get one ....

Morning all.

Here in California, we've got almost all of the bad things you've mentioned, Major.  Income tax, liberal gun grabbers, hippies, humidity, no rain.  Instead of tropical storms and hurricanes, we get forest fires.  Last year we got off easy with only 1000 acres burned,  This year, they're expecting a bad year.  At least all the lookouts will get overtime, though. Roll Eyes

I made a city trip yesterday.  It turned out to be semi-useless, though.  The one thing I mainly went for I couldn't do.  But, I did get that rifle on order.  There were only two left at the main depot after I placed my order.  But $1000 later and I have a new deer rifle and scope bases on the way

Off to church in a few- dedication to our New Worship Center, followed by a meal under the big tent.
Been lots of rain the past couple if weeks, so a tent was brought in and set up.  I think it will be a full house again today.



A year ago we were headed into a 6 month drought.  It is greener than Ireland at the time around here. The new mower got a work out this week.  Used 6 gals of non ethanol (real gas) to mow the yard.  
My little flock (30) free ranging hens like fresh mowed yard lots of goodies get turned over.

Back from Rock Creek Station.  Had a minor glitch on the way home, looks like an easy fix.   Good to have a brother with cool toys and a nephew that likes to help.  45 mile tow bill, $20. Wink

Spend the weekend with several friends including an Okie friend that drove 350 miles to do dishes.   Shocked

 :-\Congrats Grampa  Smiley 

What malady waylaid the Commodore ? 
Those Fords are probably last of the duck tape & bailing wire technology.  Which was a very good thing  , their passing is Bane to our
shade tree mechanical skills  Sad


I found myself scratching my head, when my computer controlled everything vehicle , sputtered & shut off at a traffic light  Huh
as if out of gas. The tank was 3/4 full , so an attempt to restart worked but with little or throttle control.
The name for this condition, is actually in the owners manual  " LIMP HOME MODE " !
Here is were it gets all " Big Brother " Twilight zone ish...
On board computer , tells the OEM the GPS location of my vehicle, a tow is dispatched , and its taken to the nearest Dealer for
repair....

 Drive by wire Throttle body ( as in sensor only, no cable or mechanical linkage ) is the culprit .... a couple of hours later
a new Throttle body is installed (at no charge) and I'm on my way....
Great outcome  Cheesy ..... but somehow  I'm left feeling a bit no Bueno.

  Gone are the days , of Carburetors ,  distributers,  points, plugs & condensers ....
imagine that   Undecided  missing greasy hands & scraped knuckles , go figure  Roll Eyes   
Hell , I even have my oil changed.
