The year is going fast, we'll be getting falling leaves and temps before you know it.

Will repost this here.

Long story,  wife's heart melted all over the easy chair tonight and I  made a phone call.

Not sure yet but pretty sure one of these blacks is a Male.  If so looks like I'm getting an Okie dog.

Yeah wasn't going to do another pup, wife says we have to now. ;D

In Woodward Oklahoma, if it works I will pick him up in Kansas in two weeks, delivered via a Chuckwagon. ::)

Up date it appears the black one in front is a Male.  My friend in Woodward is going to find out and he's friends with the guy who runs the shelter.

We want him because he's black and smiles.  Labs always seem to smile.

Robin came over yesterday and looked around and said dog.  Her mom had to tell her he was gone like Bailie, her yellow one they lost in May, niece came over and used her key to drop something  off, said it was strange not getting a short wood when she did it.

Lexie has been crying, we have done a few things like he was still here so now this popped up out of the blue so we are going to try.

I am about hungry right now- my morning toast with strawberry preserves has worn off.  Not sure what I want to prepare. Maybe some homegrown tomatoes and a dollop of ricotta. Salt n Pepper of course.  I?d like a big chunk of steak. None here and I am too whipped to go to town.

Have had too many fires around the homestead the past week and honestly since April. Trees falling 3 goats  a few ducks and a couple of hens, animals dying. My dog disappeared not that we are lacking in dogs and cats here. I was attached to the missing one.
Flooding from storms. Now the drains backed up. I have spent most of the day tackking then. I think that is the win Column  now. Still need to haul brush off to burn pile.
I am worn out.

The in laws lost one (Tex a Jack Russel)in the spring and another at Auburn University, who is not doing well. A big black lab(Sheila) . She started home last week but had a set back.  Like us they take in animals. Besides milking 60 cows 2x a day.

How much animals can steal our hearts. Even the ones who are stinkers will always remain in our hearts. Eased back with a cup of coffee and relaxing with the Missus tonight. See y'all tomorrow.

Well today's report on the Life of Riley, he is going to Colorado tomorrow to pick up dutch ovens and is on his way right now to the Dairy Queen to get ice cream.

Not only is he gonna help heal our broken hearts, he is doing that right now to a guy who used to have an elderly mom who he took care of.

His mom passed away just before Christmas.

Evening all.

Night time in Billings, s usual there's a thunderstorm.

Lot has happened in the past couple days. In order:
1: I managed to get a motorcycle. 1982 Yamaha XJ750.
2: I moved into a new place with my girlfriend, with 48 hours notice. That was exciting. But, we're in now. I have a full stove and oven now.
3: I was advised to get start looking for a new job by a co-worker. The place we're at now is getting run into the ground. I'm going to guess it's got about six months before they close the doors. I have an application in at Cabela's and a couple other places.
4: I worked 85 hours in 12 days at a corner Mart. I've done longer, but it was more interesting work.
5: I got a collectible Susan B Anthony silver dollar at the store today. Worth about $6.

Del, I'm sorry to hear about the dog. But it looks like you've got a good one with Riley.  Here's to friends, new and old, two and four legged.

Who?d ever think a a Susan B Anthony, would ever be worth more than a buck. Most people mistake them for a quarter  ;)


Morning coffee is up- Del glad you and Rita are dusting off and getting back into being owned by a nother k-9.

We now have an owl decoy sitting on our back porch. Hopefully "Yahooty" will keep the local birds from building nests back there again.

Went to my parents' grave today, this week they put a new marker out for my Dad, for his military service. It is really nice but unfortunately his records were lost back in the 70s in a fire so they couldn't list his Bronze Star on the marker.

Major score today....

Went to the Toy store , Some fellow had brought in his NIB Springfield Armory Mil-spec with upgrade sights and a SS Comp Grade Barrel.
He bought about a Month ago, Decided he d rather have a Glock G17 Gen 4  ???
So he was motivated and offered it about $200 under list he paid $749.99 a Cabelas + shipping.
I was just about to pay his asking $550.00 when he say's he'd take $500 remember NIB !!!
So I pipe up, I have a G17 Gen.4 ( the one I won in a door prize drawing at the range)
He wants to trade  ;D  ...Im   ah OK !
So the trade is even Steven

Glock 17 is to big for comfortable CCW,  anyway....

 ...now I figure to get a G26 , but instead brought home a NIB Sig 365 at dealer price

Found a picture of Norton to show my wife, she said he's wearing the curtains to a house she used to live in. 

Note my profile picture. ;D
