Got caught up with chores and therapy.  Added 6500 steps to my counter. Waterlines are wrapped. Which means i will have to jug water the next few days or so.  Suzanne picked up Straw bales for Pig and the Goats to get some insulation between them and ground.  The hen house is cold but not dangerously cold. Plenty of shavings and i could put a light in there but probably won’t.  Load firewood is on the way here.  Going to stack it then head to TSC.   (We still hAve a coule good burns from last years stockpile)

Evening all.

High was 40, low is supposed to be low 20s.  Possible white stuff up higher.

Went and burnt some powder today.  Finished zeroing my brother's 308, and double-checked my 280.  308 took 6 rounds, and the 280 was 1/4 MOA low and right.  Got it all straightened out, then stretched to 150yards.  I put a 1.5" group on a standard NRA 25y rifle target.  My brother was flinching, but managed to get both on paper, so we called our "long range" shooting a success. ::)

I've got some sugar cookies cooling on the wire rack right now, then they will be frosted and sprinkled and eaten for dessert.  Main course is going to be pizza.

+11 here tonight, why does every knot head thinks they have to tell you it's cold out when they come in the door?

And it's warm in the store, take yer damned gloves off before you get out your wallet and try to pay.  There is a damn line behind you that wants to get their shit and git out. ::)

Language Del language  ;D  ::) ::) ;D. You might make me blush... :o

+11 and they are wearing gloves, why?  Honestly i waited in line to pay, i am going to take my time doing it. I will thank the employee that assist me, if is cold, I will ask them if they are warm enough. I might have a extra coat or gloves i can offer. But i will not be rushed. It is my turn, i learned this from a past potus. 

I spoke with friend near Elk River, Mn. last evening, said he had his truck plugged in and really had no where important to go today.



Morning Coffee is up


Did not get trip to Tractor supply in yesterday maybe today.  Did get everything else on list done. Today different day...

We are spending the holidays with our son and daughter's families in Florida. It is 71 degrees and sunny today. Back home in Wisconsin it is 11 degrees. Two days ago the wind chill was minus 17.

The sunsets in Florida are spectacular.

Trip to BassPro and Tractor Supply today. Stopped at a new gunshop in between there. Lots fire arms.  Including some Cowboy type guns.  Looked at a AR style “pistol” 10 inch barrel flip up sights.  Little pricey though.
Tractor Supply was just stock up stop Tee post etc.

Got home about 4pm from work today. Used the daylight to re-fill the wood rack on the porch, since it's supposed to be 15 or so Saturday, 10 Sunday for highs.

Morning all. The coffee is hot, and the weather is-50. Not negative 50, just colder than 50... all the same to me.

I had my 3 month trip to the Cancer Treatment Center the day after Christmas. The tests all came back clean-ish. Still no cancer, but I have some bad sinus issues, and arthritis in my neck now.

But that is nothing, compared to what the wife gave me. Christmas eve, we were at the kid's home, and I noticed some Mistletoe in a tree in the front yard. So I dragged her out under the tree and give her a big kiss. She gave me a stomach bug in return. The bug didn't hit me until the second day out there, as I was waiting to see the Doc. It took probably an hour for her to see me, and by that time, that bug was really ramping up. I said "I know I only get to see you every 3 months, but you really need to wrap this up... NOW!" She wanted to put me in the Urgent Care, I just wanted to go back to bed. I had stuff just waiting to come out both ends, and it wasn't going to wait long. Still getting over that now, but doing much better.

We made it to MN.
I filled the windshield washer fluid reservoir half full before we left.  Light sn*w started 'bout an hour into the trip. Temp was 4. The salt on the roads were turning the snow into slush instead of melting it.  ::) The washer fluid was freezing on the windshield. Then, 'bout half way into the trip the washer fluid ran out. So, I went to the next exit and threw sn*w on the windshield to clear it and continued west on I-94. Stopped at the next exit where there was a c-store. Washer fluid was sold out. Cleaned the windshield and continued west on I-94. I repeated this a couple more times until I found washer fluid. I added a bottle of Heet to help it from freezing in the windshield. Fun!

Sounds fun Slim.  Y'all can keep that white stuff on that side of Continental divide, and I wouldn't even be mad. ::)

Evening all.

Current conditions are foggy and 30.  Supposed to get to 20-ish.  My grandma is wanting to go look for rocks along the river in the morning, but I'm thinking splitting and then burning some of that wood out back might be more enjoyable.  Or bear hunting.  I still have two more days to fill my tag.

Cap, my friend had the same thing on the 25/26/27.  Naturally he tells me this while he's in my truck on the 28. :o  Two oranges, an apple, and 1000mg of pill form vitamin C later, and I'm still okay.  For now.

Currently a warm 20 degrees and dropping. Bright sunshine. Cut about a half load of seasoned elm for the stove, now to go set out a round bale for the heifers. The last one isn't all gone, but with a forecast high of maybe 10 for the next few days, I'll do my tractoring(and wood cutting) now!

Had good time at the Melbourne (Fla) Gun Show.... My friends John (Capt. John ) Holmes & Mike (Coffin Maker) Rudolph, joined me .
John bought a unfired ( at least condition appears that way ) WALKER  Replica Arms - El Paso, Tx  what was later Allen Arms  and then Cimarron.
Date code is 1963 ... Nice

I found a little Sothern Derringer in 22 short , tight and right ...cool little vest pocket piece....

But my best score was an 32 Hammerless Iver Johnson minty in Box , with accessories, no indication it was ever fired.

I think the Darwin award winnerS for the year has been found..

2 electrocuted at substation

Police are investigating the apparent electrocution of two people early Friday at a Detroit Public Lighting Authority building, Fox 2 reported on Saturday.

A worker reportedly told Fox 2 he found the bodies just after 6:30 a.m. when he went to the substation to investigate a power outage. The pair are suspected of breaking in the front door of the substation, and, according to Fox 2, they were in the process of stealing copper wiring when they were electrocuted. 

Police confirmed to the news organization that two men pried open the front door of a Public Lighting substation, and once inside made contact with 24,000 volts of electricity.


According to the police, the electricity caused their bodies to be fused together, and they were pronounced dead at the scene. 

Police have not yet given the names of the men. 

The substation is located on the city's east side.

Takes a real rocket scientist to think stealing copper wire from a live circuit is a good plan.

Nice finds at the fun show, M-2!
