Had some nice days here, clear and sunny yesterday and today. near 60 yesterday, 50 today. Trend continues, supposed to be 40 tomorrow. Bought a log splitter from a widow lady at church yesterday, and split 2/3 of a truckload of wood in just a little while aftyer work. Been heating with wood for better than 30 years, never owned one before. MAybe less time splitting can make more range time.....

Pony i was liked you heated for more years with wokd than any other source. Never had a mechanical spliter. Had hsed them and always thought i could deal with that.  Now we call a guy and he brings a load to the house and stacks it. $100. No saws to maintain no axs mauls and wedges, no sore backs.  Of course we are still burning from last years load.

I just put a pair of ‘8’ balls on my 2 Dillon 550s. The bigger ball feels better than the original one but I have big hands. Stay warm.

Catfish hush puppies and onion rings from the little fryer. Our breading mix on the fish.  Slaw and homemade tarter sauce.  Yum 😋

Mmmmmmmmmmm! now you're talking  :D  fingerlings or boneless ?
throw in a bowl of cheese grits & an order of fried green tomatos and it's near heaven on a plate.

Course, there are folks that might not agree,  :-\  but they ain't never tried it !  ;)

Major2 they were boneless filets. Local market had them on sale. We bought enough for a couple meals. The onion rings were remainders from another time. Since the fryer was out. The slaw i made. The trick is to let it narinade awhile before eating. Will keep grits in mine for next batch.



Sunny and 41 i think rain is suppose to return tomorrow



Thanks for the coffee Slim.

Our high today was 28 degrees the low will be 17 degrees sometime early tomorrow morning, Sunday & Mondat the low is supposed to be 13 and that's not including the wind chill which makes it feel like 14 degrees right now.

Sn*w-mageddon predicted here. Or maybe just a couple of inches. First measurable sn*w of the year, so it's a for sure disaster. Unless it's not. Definitely not as nice as the sunny weather the last several days. Barely below freezing, so it's a wet sloppy sn*w.

Evening all.

Hit a balmy 35 degrees in good old Billings today. Currently freezing, with wind to 25. Clear night, so it'll probably be cold by morning.

The first week of class has gone bumpily enough to last me the rest of the year. Had to reschedule 3 classes, buy a new textbook, and pay an extra $100 of tuition that came out of nowhere.  I also have a job working on campus in the security department.  Unfortunately, I won't see any money from that because it's all for direct deposit to my tuition.

Been snowing since 6, not supposed to start till after midnight. ;D

Couple or 3 here at home, at least 4 across town at work.

Slicker than snot, locked in and took off in second and drove in 3rd and had no trouble.  Saw one ahead hit the curb on a down hill, one almost sidewaysed in my lane on the up hill and saw one slide through the light.

Glad I have good tires a 4wd and a stick.

People been trying to convince me for over years slush boxes are better, still ain't.  Hope I can find another when I have to.

Snowmaggeddon failed to happen here. An inch or 2 was all, and from my front door, the roads appear to have melted off, and grass is poking through. But all wet and sloppy outside, so probably a mostly indoors weekend. Hmm... Reloading? Casting?

You guys got me goin’ on a deep fried (artery hardening) menu for last night.  Moved the spaghetti to tonight.  Did batter dipped catfish fillets, batter dipped deep fried onion rings, and hush puppies with onion and Jalapeno peppers (something we used to get at Valley Fort Bayou Inn in Fallbrook Ca just outside of Oceanside.  Turned out fine.  Sorry Major, but no grits or green ‘matters.
