Brush-hogging time is here again. Flat tire on the tractor already after 2-3 hours. It's a BACK tire, of course... Angry  18.4X34 is a pretty heavy item...

Sure! I'll be right over! Let's see.....14MPH in high gear.....Might take a couple of weeks.....


Delivered the tire to the local farm tire outfit, after hours. They'll find it in their way Monday morning. Maybe even recognize it from fixing it last year, about this time.

Got home from town to find steak on the grill, and sweet corn from the garden, and pan of brownies about to come out of the oven. Almost was to full to do any more work, BUT, her Trailblazer had only 3 speeds left on the A/C blower.(The lowest 3,of course. Speed 1 &2 NEVER go out.) Had to replace both the resistor and the plug and wires, the old plug was fried onto the resistor. Now has all 5 speeds. For now at least. It's the 3rd time I've replaced it in 7 years, but it's about the only thing that ever goes wrong on it..

Top of the Mornin Y'all. Seems like everybody is staying busy, and it looks like I am too. I took on a pair of holsters for a Son, and one for his Dad for Christmas. Just finishing them off now... well, after I get the laundry done. Had a friend at the pawnshop ask for a holster, so I cranked out a quicky for her Ruger 38 while I waited for the first two to dry. Now I have one more to do after them, and two more requests after that. At this rate, I'm going to need an A/C unit in the shed, so I can work during the day! This "Hobby" is becoming a full time job...

Evening y'all.
Got home from verk 'bout 20 min ago.
Just the dog and I. The family is at a 4H pool party.

Del, cooking up some is the jalapeño sausage from the muster.

Evening all.  I've got some water on the coals for those wanting a late night cup of coffee.

Long day today at work.  We had a lot of smoke from Six Rivers and Modoc forests blow in overnight.  Normally I've got about 40 miles of view from up there, but today it was maxing out at about 15 miles.  One lookout farther south had to go out of service at 3 o'clock because he couldn't see the base of his own mountain.  And I had to sit up there for none hours.  Not only that, but the other guy up there with me was too hungover to do much more than sit in the bed and moan until noon.   Undecided

But, Tuesday I get my own tower on the other side of the valley, so I'm kind of excited for that.

"James shook his head and twirled his Colt into it's holster with a smile.  There was some coffee left in the pot, so he poured it in his cup and leaned against the wall by the door.  The sun was setting in the distance, creating a beautiful sunset. 
   “Texas has better sunsets.”  He heard Terri say next to him.  He turned to face her.
   “Of course it does.  But we gotta get what we can in the mean time.” He said with a lopsided grin.  She smiled back and pulled her Colt, stuffing the barrel into his belly.
   “Yer' getting slow.  Better work on that.”  She said and walked back into the house with the empty coffee pot. 
   “We saw that, y' know.”  Clint Rounds said laughing.   James turned red and tried to hide his embarrassment."   Excerpt fromTHE FLOPPY HAT FROM TEXAS," being written by yours truly.

They got a bed in those smoke towers? While I never been up in one, the ones they have here in Missouri don't have more than enough room for a couple of chairs I think. But they rarely, if ever use them anymore.

Morning y'all.
Coffee and iced tea are ready.

'Tis 64, sunny and humid. "Partly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Patchy fog in the morning. Highs in the middle 80s. Light and variable wind becoming southwest around 5 mph in the afternoon. Chance of rain 40 percent."

I had never been to the one on St Marys between Corvallis and Stevensville, from Hwy 93 it looks big enough to house the Missoula smoke jumper squad. The ones i have been two lower Bitterroot East and West Fork were small like you say. Usually a camp set up near tower. The one old one, the smoke/lightning watcher could sack out in and had a coleman stove. This has been over 20 years ago since i hVe been to them. Closer to 25 years ago.

I have had my most active day since late May. See how tomorrow goes. I can only praise the almighty, for his hand and of course cooler temps and low humidity he had provided.

Then pretending to being on a tv cooking competion this eveningi burnt my hand. Hot open face turkey sands and mashed taters.     Yum!



See ya'll next month
