Evening all.

I got the Moderna one. I’m still kicking.  Depends on who you ask as to whether or not that’s a good thing. ::)

Had quite the day at work . The valve on my 4” dump connector came open while on the drive back to the shop, and I didn’t realize that until I took off the leak cap and got a shower.  Good times.

Would take that also,, guess this stimulus bill is going to give us $250 a month for our "child."  Not saying it makes sense but will take it since Mom don't give us much to help and Dad nothing, working on that but wheels run slow  Children are not cheap. ::)  Don't get me wrong, glad we did it, guess they both are our rescues. ;D

Good Morning All!

35℉ and heading towards the mid-fifties.
Speaking of heading, leaving shortly for Indiana. (It's still there, isn't it?)

It must be, I've heard nothing to the contrary and I saw a picture of it on a Map just the other day  ;D
Hope you and Yuma have a great time, tell'm I said hey.

I'll put the coffee water on.... pour the corn flakes ( sorry no blue berries )

Speaking of the "stimulus"  I never saw the $600 one ( SHE did ) later the Gov. sent a letter saying they were sending her a Debit card for $600  :-\ never got that either ....

I'm not holding my breath this time either, I figure they'll tax it back out of us some way or another anyway  ::)

Breezy @ 21 MPH was suppose to be 50% rain but NADA so far, thought it looked that way this morning,
Temps are 88 now and 20-25 degrees cooler tomorrow .

Leftover Meatloaf is the the fare for the afternoon repast, that is about as exciting as it gets today.

Evening all.

Reached 51 today in Missoula. Did a bunch of work in weird places around the county. Currently I’m sitting in a customer’s yard in a broke down work truck. The darned parking brakes won’t let go, so I will be here for a while. At least until the bosses come pick me up.  :-\

I never got the $1200 taxable income check either. I got the $600, and this one. I used both to pay on student loans.

Got 100 93gr and 100 128gr .32 WCF loads for the Colt Police Positive Special. 2.5gr and 2.0gr of Trail Boss. Put 3 of each in it. I didn't feel any difference in recoil. But, the 128gr holes in the cardboard were more noticeable.

Haven't shot the New Service, yet. I loaded all my .45 Colt brass with BP. Ain't gonna shoot BP in it.
Done more research on it. It was made in 1909 and has the hammer safety. The same as the Police Positive. So, it is technically a commercial model Colt 1909.

I'm sure the 32-20 is like the 32 mag, loves heavy bullets they hit harder than most expect and the pernitrate deep, often deeper that most other pistol loads.

Morning all.

Got the truck out around 7pm. Turns out an abs sensor had come loose in the rear axle, and the computer thought the truck was continually slipping with the brakes applied (like they had to be for a hill start in a manual), and was trying to keep the truck from sliding sideways- by applying the brakes to whichever wheel started turning.  ::)  Got the sensor back in, and then had to pull the truck out because all the fiddling with the clutch had dug a hole in the ground. What fun.

On today’s docket, I have a tank to pump in Huson (about 15 miles west on I-90), some other odd jobs, and horse poop to shovel. Also have to swing by sportsman’s warehouse and grab a hunting license to please the ATF gods when I pick up my new Ruger on Monday.

Tiz SPRING  or its just few moments away , course we here in the Sunshine State don't get a Winter season as it were

WE get Spring  , SUMMER , and something akin to a cooler less humid few Months which I look forward to....  :)

I don't look forward to " the tropical storm season , daily thunder storms , humidity , hurricane warnings ...

Spring for us in the sunny typical State is welcome , 'cept for pollen, bugs,  Spring breakers and scamming gypsies.
 
anyway coffee is up ...

Happy Spring y’all
Weather is a bit cooler after the storms Thursday. Yet it is sunny and bright.

Not much here- locally our little ass police department was involved in a shoot out yesterday.  No officers were injured.

Suzanne with her oldest sons help, were able to till the garden space yesterday. The majority of it has been idol., since I am unable to do it.  She also is trying a tarping method. Covered for a few weeks, till then recover for a week or so. Then till again.

She is hoping to start planting soon.

We don’t see Sandhill Cranes here. Hummingbirds are back though.
Daffodils are bloomed along with forsythia. Along with the never ending battle of mowing. Yep it’s spring.

Y’all keep it between the ditches.

Evening all.

Today’s excitement was limited to a trip to the hardware store for horse equipment and a truck battery, and then changing said battery.  Also washed my work clothes.

I saw a heron last night, which is kind of like a sandhill. Also saw a lot of geese.

TK - I use to see Sandhill Cranes in the land of giant hay mounds. Spring time in the Big  Hole Country.  Near and around the National Battlefield.
