Evening all.

Well, the carbs are still on the bike. Undecided By the time I got done running around town doing errands, it was too hot to touch the bike.  104 in the sun, it said.  Anyway, it's an '82 Suzuki GS550L.  My dad bought it in 84 or '85 when the Air Force moved him from North Dakota to Southern California.  He could get from his base to his mom's house in a weekend for $2. Roll Eyes
It's been sitting since my mom had her surgery in '95, but the engine's not seized, so I want to fix it up and ride it.

Rodeo went well enough.  Nobody made it through the short round.  And our only local boy in it didn't make 2 seconds.  But, it was a good time, and there were exhibition motorcyclists.  If YouTube will decide to work for me, I'll upload the video I took.  Undecided

I took the dog out this morning for a swim and she cut her foot pretty badly.  It bled for 30 minutes before I got her to calm down enough for it to clot a bit.  Now she just keeps licking it.  She's still licking it, but I think it's starting to scab a little.  She won't be going on any long walks for a while, though.

Morning all. The coffee is hot, but it ain't working. It's that Costa Rican stuff I got last week. It tastes good, but I think that those Costa Ricans have such a relaxed environment, they don't feel the need to "Have to wake up". Everybody knows, Folgers don't fool around Smiley

Been having trouble sleeping at nights. Everytime I start to doze off, them mutts of mine decide that there is some sort of invasion they need to deal with. And if it ain't them, it's the skeeters, or some other bug... usually ticks. So, after 2 hours of this, I give up and go to the leather shop till sun up. I'm getting too old for this stuff... On the other hand, it is cool and quiet in the shop, and I'm getting caught up. Throw a DVD in the laptop, grab a couple JavaMonsters, and tool away.

Beginning to feel like it is really the summer here on the coastal plain.  It was 79 F on the way to work, and expected heat index of 105F.
Probably do some reloading this evening if the garage is less than 95 F!

Afternoon all.

Standard California weather, still.  105 and sunny.

My dog is at the vet right now, getting her foot stitched.  It was still bleeding this morning when I got up, and she split it open more when I got back from work (side note.  She gets really excited when I get back from anywhere.  Even if it's just the bathroom.  ).  We took her in to the vet at 1240, and he said "Yes it needs stitches.  We're pretty full today, so we'll keep her until I can get it done.  It will be sometime between 1430 and 1800."  So much for my afternoon...

I was working on the bike this morning.  Successfully removed the gas tank, only to find I don't have the tool I need to remove the air box.  Seems to be the story of my vehicle-fixing life.  Undecided  I'm going to go talk to my neighbor here in the next couple of days, though.  He's built two choppers in his garage already, and he's working on the third.  He's doing it from the ground up, fabricating the frame and everything around a Harley engine he got for free.  He should have the tools.  Roll Eyes

638 sales on register and dropped $5487 cash in the safe in 11 hours.

For what it is worth I am becoming a legend around the stores.  I can work side by side with one of the kids and still righ up 50% or more sales.

Afternoon all.

Weather is supposed to cool down any day now...  Right now it's 100.  Which is better than 105, I guess.

My mother and brother are out picking up 4h rabbits right now.  Those darn things will likely make him $500 richer next month, which is honestly more than I would pay for a creature I could go out and shoot myself, but different stroke for different folks.

Roo, the place I've been working at the past few weeks boards goats, sh**p ( Roll Eyes ) and a couple cows.  None of them get along.  Though the pit bull gets along with all of them.

Glad to hear you're recouping Lil Rooster. When they opened up my chest for a biopsy, the idjits somehow deflated a lung, so I had to go through the chest tube route too.

Well, the weather is hot, and unfortunately, so is the coffee. But, that pot should be gone by the time the leather shed has cooled off enough to work. I have one iced coffee left, and it will be enjoyed while finishing off that rifle sling. The first padded thumbhole sling I've done, and it has been an experience. The next one will be smooth sailing Wink

I finally figured out why I wasn't sleeping too good at night. Aside from the bugs, and the dogs going off every time I started to doze, maybe drinking 3 or 4 espressos before bed was a bad idea? Perhaps I should just add more steamed milk...
