Good morning GTA! Up at 0455 CDST. Still in Memphis at our daughter's.  Yesterday I cut more hedge, replaced 7 boards on the deck. Fixed two more gate latches. Changed the ballast in a 4-bulb florescent light.
(The most fun was hauling 16 ft 5/4" x 6" deck boards from Home Depot without a trailer.)

Today more hedge.

Good morning all!

This Texas weather is NoT cooperating with my plans!

It has been rainy and cool. Haven't been able to get back in the roof to finish removing skin and sheathng.

I have been selling a few more of the hubs' knife collection on the Blade forum, and doing some garden maintenance. Today, I have a couple of packages to ship out, then planning yo make some meatball and veggie soup.

Great day to all!

Good morning everyone!  I just got back from the dentist and I’m contemplating taking the rest of the day off.  My tooth no longer hurts so the day is shaping up nicely but it looks like the next few weeks I’ll be spending my surplus income at the dentist office  :(

Good morning GTA! Up at 0400 CDST. I’ve got a Starbuck’s PM to do today. My boss found me some help, new guy starts in about 3 weeks. My wife starts a new job today, joining a cleaning crew. She’s pretty excited. My mom & my sister are coming over Saturday for Mahayla’s graduation. I’m hoping for clear sky’s, it’s scheduled to be outside on the football field. I’m also hoping for a light end of the week so I can finish the line trimming this afternoon or tomorrow after work, maybe even mow before the weekend. I know my wife would like us to help “inside” the house too, before my mom gets here. That never gets old when my mom comes.  ;D

Coffee, GTA, work! Should be a decent evening with low winds, hope to stock some starlings this evening when I get home and cast another thousand slugs with my new mold from MP.

Good morning GTA! Up at 0340 CDST... and it’s chaos today. Today is our middle daughters last day of high school, tomorrow is graduation. Both of our dispatchers are out of the office, both service managers have a combined 4 months experience. They sent out an apprentice with filters for 7 jobs and I only need help for the one we’re supposed to do today, but they can’t find the work order, they have us dispatched for somewhere else. I just want to do this job, get it done & go home. Once all figured out, I should be going home by lunch time.

Happy Friday!

Yesterday, I worked from 0530 until 1845, so was pretty wiped out last night.
Today is shaping up to be a very nice day. Finally some sun and mild breeze, so perhaps I can finally get more accomplished on the demo work.
I have been selling the hubs' knife collection on the blade forums, andhave to to ship one out today, so unfortunately, cannot just stay home all day, although I would LOVE to. I was initially up around 0400, but managed to go back to sleep until almo 0600, and dallied this morning, writing a few emails and checking on family and friends on FB.

Good morning GTA! Up at 0340 CDST. Today is graduation day for Mahayla! My mom and my sister are coming over from Hot Springs. They should be here about 1300. My wife is a mess, she made a cake last night after I went to bed. I’m going to get a couple hairs cut at 0600 or so and wash the car. I’ll help straighten up the house after everyone’s up and do whatever to keep my wife calm til after graduation, which isn’t until 1800. I’m going to get some pizzas before my mom gets here so my wife can stop messing in the kitchen. I’m sure there’ll be a little lull time somewhere that I can take out the Co2 rifles and shoot even for a little bit. Should be a crazy good day.  ;D

Congrats Mahayla!


My eyes popped open at 5:11...
Odd, on a weekday the alarm goes off at 5:30 and I curse, but on a weekend I can't WAIT to get the day rolling.

I don't think I have any plans today, I'll let you know once my "Activities Coordinator" wakes up.  ;)

Congratulations are definitely in order for Mahayla! I regret that Covid has prevented many of the events and activities that seniors usually get to experience.

Your families getting together to join in the celebration will make for hectic and chaotic moments but hopefully she'll only remember the love poured out for her on her special day.

Thank you, Brother Dan! I’m sure this day will be remembered, we are definitely blessed and more fortunate than many for these circumstances. Last year’s graduates were robbed of so much. I sure hope the best for these next generations to overcome all these experiences. My Baby-Girl, especially.

It’s starting to look like rain... sure hope not, but...

There’s some moving in on the radar, hopefully it won’t last long.

Mowing got done... all three jobs. Made a run to Troy for smoking supplies and oil change stuff for the Rancher. Got back and Betty Lou wanted to go to the grocery.
Tomorrow I have a list of 'me stuff' to do.

Yesterday was yard work. Spreading dirt and grass seed in some areas tha have been abused. Then planted more flowers, hopefully done with frost. I will put the tomatoes in and tarp the garden today.

I did get o shoot outside yesterday. I need a lot more practice as lack of shooting the last two weeks really shows. Impact on my plastic jug stuffed with grocery bags is way louder than my HW95 so I will experiment with some foam in front of it.

My taskmaster is making my list for today.

Good morning GTA! Graduation, yesterday, was a success! A wonderful time & ceremony. But we didn’t get to bed until after 2300 hrs. I was awakened at 0242 to pickup Mahayla at the school from Project Graduation, they went bowling until 0200! Went back to bed and woke at 0600. My mom and sister will be back over after they check out of the hotel and visit some before they leave for Hot Springs. I imagine we’ll not have much of a plan today other than recoup before the work week starts. I might mow and do the line trimming later and throw down some grass seed too, after our visiting ends.
