Thread drift! Hah! Thread drift is what this thread is all about!

Had a good "workout" after work. Playing RotoRooter. Had to dig up a section of sewer pipe, cut a "cleanout" hole, and drag out a bunch of roots. Will have to dig some more later and replace a section, it's partially collapsed where it goes under the foundation. It's the black fiber kind of pipe they used to use 50-75 years ago before they invented PVC.

Yeah but there is cheaper and better coffee and why have to wait in line or park in the lot with the Priuses as well as having to deal with Yuppies all over the place. Wink

Ale? What about Kaluah?  A delightful blend of rum and coffee, I drink it by the mugful. Make it myself with fresh roasted Kenyan AAA bean, Kona if I can get it, and 120% Rum.

Don't envy you - have hand dug several that way. Never easy.

Over the past week i have lost 4 hens and my last duck. Who i used to gather the flock in.  I suspected stray dogs. Yesterday Suzanne was in her office and yelled and ran to closet and grabbed her shotgun. About that time one of our german shepards was on the deck and got wind. Went ton the chase. I followed our the the door. She seen a coyote trailing up hill from the pasture. She shot but he was able to get in the woods away with his meal. I went gathered up the hens and placed them back in to hen house.  Will have to keep them in for a while. Flock number 2 seems un affected by this.  I'd set a trap but don't want to catch our own dogs.

Some Lustrum ago, learned to hate Coyotes.  Made a good bit of change shooting them in Montana.  Made a good bit of change selling the pelts as well.  Never new what the hide buyers wanted Coyote hides for.  While in Europe, saw some real fine and real expensive fur coats.  Yep.  You guessed it ..... Coyote.

Even starting to become infested with the critters here in Pennsytuckey.  Too close to neighborhoods and homes to shoot.

G'mornin' Gents, and Ladies, if there be any about.  Got my first cuppajoe in, more better, now.

Drifting threads??  This is called "Tall Tales", yanno; need to broaden your view.

Coffee - Ale - Kahlua; now, that's drifting, even if in a moderately straight line.  Did'ja ever make your own Kahlua?  We did it once; involved vodka, instant coffee, and sugar, and maybe somethin' else, but I can't remember, it was a long time ago.  We made about three or four "fifths" of the stuff, and set it in to age, and after we opened the first one a few months later, we forgot about the rest of it.  When we sold out and moved some fifteen or so years later, we dug the bottles out from the back of the pantry.  Opened one up to see what had happened to it, and found a very nice, mellow liqueur, pretty good stuff, didn't give us any bad reactions or such, so we gave one to each of the kids, and took the other one with us to the mountains, and used it up making "toddies" for winter warming. All in all, not a bad experience, over a period of about 25 years.

Speaking of 25 years, we're going to SoCal this weekend to help celebrate our oldest son and daughter-in-laws 25 year anniversary.  Looking back, I sometimes wonder how we survived that day so well, but having kids with that kind of stick-to-it makes me believe it was worth the strain; they are successful, stable, good neighbor kind of folks, and have given us some grands that make our heads swell up with pride quite often.  Can't ask for more than that.

Later.

@El Peludo- I always make my own Kahlua, but only using fresh brewed coffee and brown sugar. You need to be sure you use a high proof alcohol, otherwise it ferments and goes bad... found that out the hard way. I use rum, because that is what Kahlua uses, and I figger that's good enough for me.

I've been known to lift a window a few inches and shoot coyotes from there. Scoped .308 does them in pretty good. At one time the ex worked at a hatchery, and was always bringing home "extras" to the point we had a couple hundred assorted chickens roaming around. I suspect the farms for miles around were without coyotes, because they were all here!

I can get away with a pistol shot on most if the place a shotgun is still the safest way here. Using a rifle is too risky with the Highway kn front boundry and the interstate on the rear boundry and a neighbor a short distance  thru the woods. They also have chickens and are on the watch now.  


I guess i can start the brew...

That's not a problem on my farm, nearest neighbor is a little over 1/4 mile, but a large hill (That's MY hill) between us. No highways within less than artillery distance.

Afternoon ladies and germs.  Roll Eyes  And I will take some of that coffee, and tea too. 

Today is my weekend.  Worked a 65 hour week, so I'm enjoying lazing around with the dog so far.  Back at it Sunday and Monday, then off until Friday.  My schedule changed again so I'm working Friday to Monday, starting next pay period, which is tomorrow. 

County Fair is this week, so I'll be hanging around there on my days off.  They have a lookout tower exhibit there that is identical to one of my towers, so I'll probably spend time there explaining things.  Might even convince my boss to pay me for it.  Roll Eyes  My brother has some rabbits that he's auctioning, so we'll see how that goes.

And to answer PE's question from last month's thread, yes my towers have beds.  I will be making use of them.  They also have refrigerators, and cooking ranges with ovens.  Also, one does actually have Wi-Fi, and both have Verizon 4G.  I'm planning on making a video about it, so when I get that done up I'll post a link so you can see.

A quick google search didn't turn up any inside pictures of the ones used in MO, but the most common ones appear to be 7'X7' dimensions, on top of a 100' tower. Not a lot of room in there. Back when they actually were using them, they often had a small house or cabin below for the lookout to live in.

I have the tallest in the county, and it's only 55 at the top of the roof.  The other is only 15.  Roll Eyes  And both are 20'x20'.  Comfortable enough for 2 people to hang out in.

Well, we don't have as high mountains as you have to put them on top of. First 50 or so feet just gets them above the tree tops. Most who talk of climbing them talk about the wind "up there". Probably about like being on top of a mast of a sailing ship!
