Good morning all, 42° and rain. Animals are fed and watered, bipeds fed and it's cookie and coffee time. I need my nourishment while I type. Today is eye Dr. visit for Wifey, haircut for me and D.i.c.k.'s sporting goods for muzzleloader sabots. I ran out while sighting in my scope that got knocked around last year. Last 4 shots were within the 9 ring at 75 yds. so we're good to go. I also finally used up all the old gunpowder pellets. Some of them just went "poof" not bang. Glad they're gone. Play safe out there.

It's actually a damned river. There's a gov run fish hatchery about 12 km further north downstream. Its quite low this year. We had almost no rain this summer. So far as I know, its the first time ever there's enough beach that you can drive a quad all around.

no doubt a nice setting! home on a hill... overlooking the big river, appears to be in flood-proof location... big splitting lot and don't appear to be too many close neighbors... think you got it made wcc! :)

good morning - off to get a flu shot. rake pine needles. yesterday cooked venison dinner with fresh picked lima beans. deer round steak! cilantro, sliced toms, green onion and radish slices also. what a treat! :cool:have a nice day!

got that Senior Dose flu shot. gotta be over 65 to get it. :rolleyes: took over an hour to find a pharmacy in America's 4th largest city... that had it! most still waiting on it. reportedly, helps stave off any pandemic onset issues... flue related! the package had two steaks in it. cooked up 2nd one last nite. dinner here the first cooking. I started with the limas... :)

Good afternoon guys.
Very nice out here today :havingarest:.
Woke to 41 and it's now 65 and they are saying a high of 67 still, I don't see that happening though as the temp seems to be dropping now.
Had some big raindrops fall when I was almost done cleaning up all the leaves, pictures at 5, oh wait it is 5 lol.
I had some help doing them today as the boy wanted to drive the John Deere I picked up, he was very excited to use the lawn sweeper which I listed yesterday. He made it around once and then thru the middle when I told him to bring it over for a guy to look at it, he was bummed when he took it with him, sold :lol:.

I did the back yard with it and it does a real nice job.

Blue spruce?

This tree is 40-50 + ft tall by my questimation.
My neighbor hired a guy to take it down for $300: He'll climb it, no machinery, remove the debris, no stump grinding.
It has a few cracks in the trunk starting at the base & going up about 7 feet

The guy must not like $
Looks to be a Norway spruce, but we'll need @SawTroll to confirm :).
I wouldn't do it for that unless it was a straight drop and I could squeeze it in whenever I wanted.
But if you have a couple hrs and the equipment/guys and it's in route on a short day...

G'mornin' folks. 1ºC this morning. Good day to unload the kiln and provide some much needed fuel for a customer.

Meanwhile, I am finding these on the ground. CAT257B2 2008 4700hrs. New tracks coming this week. Might have to inspect the wheels while I'm at it.

Do you usually replace them as a set?
Hope she doesn't spit anything out the side :crazy2:.
