Yessir I do. And I fit right in.  ;D

27, wind chill 7 today in Billings. But sun is shining, and most of the ice is gone.

I'm finding more places I hurt myself in my little fall yesterday. So far I'm up to 4 bruised ribs (plus one that's still healing from last month), bruised tailbone, sacrum and hip, pulled muscle in my lower back, stomach and right leg. My left wrist is also painful, though I didn't got it, so I'm not sure why. Sympathy pain, I guess.

Update on the friend of mine that was in the car wreck. It turns out that is was a different friend of mine in the same department.  He's in stable condition, still in ICU. He has multiple broken ribs, a punctured lung, and a concussion, but is expected to make a full recovery. Which is good to hear. He has a wife and 2 children (7 and 1).

We're running onto 3 plus weeks of dry weather, with nothing in the foreseeable future.  We are running overnight lows just around freezing and highs in the mid to high 60's.

At least the cooler temps and low winds are giving the firefighters in California a chance to knock down the worst of the wildfires.  The fact that SPG&E has not kept up the maintenance on it's power line (that led to the destruction of almost the entire town of Paradise.  Their response is to shut off power to users to keep from being blamed again as being the probable cause of a fire.  (I feel for those that have lost property and the ability to get information in critical times due to lack of power).

Found out that this last outbreak caused shutdowns of power to pumping stations that bring gas and diesel fuel to Reno.  Nice to know that the California bureaucracy can influence a lot of people outside of their jurisdiction.  And I thought leaving would rid myself of California Government.

Oh well, I'll get off my soapbox (high horse), and just enjoy the sunny skies and nice temps we're having!

Actually slept most the night, got up and cleaned a disaster kitchen, supper was good, friend left 15 pounds of ribs with me back in September and then I got sick, didn't feel like doing them and didn't want to get him sick in case it was catching. 

Actually he came over the see and play with Little Brown Dog.😉

Little Brown Dog was naughty Thursday, snuck in and snuck back outside with a half slab of ribs.😖  it's ok, we had plenty, DJ laughed and said he's too cute to be mad at for long.

Smoked em with oak for a couple hours, put on a rub and slow cooked them in the roaster, house smelled awsome, Little Brown Dog  kept trying to tell me they were done.😂

I am so glad we didn't wait a while to get another dog and so glad I was on FB that night and so glad I didn't say no when the one we thought was black was brown, were sure though we got the same one that looked black and was a male.  Norton said he got the darkest one.  Couldn't turn back at that point, Rita had already named him.

Because I was sick and getting certain people together we are not doing Rowdy's ashes till spring.  Moved the can to the closet yesterday, Little Brown Dog  licked the dust out of my etes.

Evening all.

Still laid up. I've had bruised ribs before, but not seven of them at once. Makes sneezing an adventure. Also, I didn't know the tailbone was involved in the breathing process. But it definitely let's me know that it is.

Russ, those Californians just mess with everyone.   ::). On a different note, there's a chance I'll end up in your neighborhood in the next couple years. The ANG unit there is going to have an opening for a pilot right about the time I'll be looking for a pilot position. So I plan on putting in an application.

Del, you gotta keep an eye on those little food-converters with tails. Mine got on the counter once and ate an entire stick of butter out of the dish.

Afternoon Y'all, Had a low of 18 last night and a high today of 48 and overcast. Have to take the covers off the gazebo and Grill canopy in case we get snow on Tuesday. Also have to cover the outdoor furniture and pack all the cushions away for the year. The later go to my sons place and help him do the same.

Hey Kid, hope to get a chance to see ya sometime in the future.
When I first moved here the 152nd was a photo reconnaissance unit flying  RF-4C aircraft.  Now it is an airlift wing flying C-130H's.  It never seems like I'm truly home until the plane taxis passed the High Rollers Herc's on it's way to the terminal.

Took care of those chores yesterday.  I brought all the stuff into the garage from the patio, and the wife was in charge of stuffing everything onto the shelves.  She has a system of some sort as to where everything goes, so if I put it away I'd probably fit more in there, but then we'd never find it again next spring.

Seemed a little strange to be packing this stuff away when the temp was about 70.  But better that than waiting till the snow was blowing, winds gusting and the temp near zero.

Slim, I made my bullet trap out of an old steel barrel with one end open. Filled it full of the landscape mulch made out of shredded tires that I purchased at Lowe's. Put a self sealing rubber membrane over the open end after placing the mulch inside. My membrane was some material lining a box that some delicate materials came in. When all of it is gone I am going to try rubber mat for the floor that you can get at Harbor Freight. Built a stand for the barrel out of two by fours so it would lie on it's side about chest high. Placed target stand in front of the open end with paper target attached. Gave  $15.00 for the barrel and about $100.00 for enough mulch to fill barrel. Shot it with lots of different cowboy calibers using lead bullets. Haven't had one to penetrate completely through yet! Have also tried handguns in 9mm, 45 acp, 38 & 357 with jacketed with no problems. Barrel is pretty heavy when full of the mulch. I use the front end loader on the tractor for setting it on and off the stand. Shoot it till the membrane has a big enough hole where the mulch starts to fall out. Take it down, sift through mulch to retrieve lead bullets so they can be melted down for recasting, fill it back up, place new membrane and ready to go again. Been using for three years with no problems.  Keep a tarp over it when not in use. Have to be careful when removing tarp in summer time, wasps like to build under it!

Thanks, Back Roads.
I was thinking more of a metal box similar to the rimfire bullet traps.

Slim,  Built something similar to that many years ago. May be great for small caliber but I was using far larger than .22 and got a lot of splatter.  Tried putting sand in the bottom to catch the projectile but still didn't stop the splatter from the lead bullet contacting the back deflector. I guess it depends a lot on what you are firing into the trap.
On the trap that I use the bullets have very little deformation. I wash them and then they go back into the pot to be recast into new bullets. The last time I cleaned it out I recovered over 12 pounds of lead.
Hope you find one that works well for you.

Rowdy won't mind  ;D

last Sunday, we lost  Cody (Bufallo Bill Cody) to sudden Kidney failure. He had diabetes and CKD ( chronic Kidney Disease) for about 3 years.
both were under control with insulin shots twice daily and other meds. He was active and comfortable right up until friday night (day of the the dead).
He Started acting very poorly late Saturday night, we didn;t get much sleep, and ran him into the Emergency Vet Sunday morning.
Turns out his kidneys failed completly, blood numbers were off the chart. Nothing we could have done. I truly think he decided his work was done,
and so his kidneys just quit.

There was nothing left to be done but to grant him "grace" and assist him to pass comfortably. 

I built him a nice little box, but could not bury him until today.
We Just now finished burying him, with his favorite toys, tobacco and sage, and an honor song.

Buried him right between his best buddy Zorro, and their mentor Groucho.

it never gets any easier.
