Good morning GTA! Up at 0430 CDST. Having coffee, of course, and contemplating what I might do after Ch**ch today. I got quite a bit done yesterday outside before the FedEx guy dropped off my pellets. But I didn’t get the line trimming done. It’s not bad in most places, but I have several areas that need it done. I could let it go until a day I get home from work at a decent time. And it may rain today around noon. Perhaps I’ll just wait & see what the weather’s like after lunch and a nap and shoot some after that.

We are actually going to church today, it's been over a year but we finally don't have to wear masks anymore, we can shake hands and they're even gonna have coffee in the foyer again. I really missed the fellowship at church!

That’s great, Jim! Coffee, touching people and fellowship is vital!!!

Yayyyyy Jim.......that is wonderful!

I worked on the demo project yesterday....progress is slow but steady. I read that we may have a few days of warm and clear, so hopefully bigger gains will be made.
I will be working on it again today. I was up initially around 0200 and had some coffee and did a few things around here. (Goodness!- I am becoming my mom! 😆)

Did I ever mention that my mom is a lovely woman?!

😄

You guys have a great Sunday....Jim, I am so happy for you that you can once again go to church!

We too are getting ready to go to church this morning, my first time in quite a while. I have limited my 'voluntary' time wearing a mask and only do so when compulsed' to wear one and have limited my travels because of this.  Heading to the recycling in town after to see if we can exchange more plastic bottles. We had WAY too much fun with those caps yesterday!!  ;D

Good morning GTA! Up at 0230 CDST. Yesterday my son and I had to go take down the deer stands on our deer hunting acres.  We are having the 90 acres clearcut and the stands were on trees they are going to cut. I hated to have to miss church but my son is working six days a week and it was the only time we could.  We had to go out first thing yesterday as it was forecast to rain starting at 1130 CSDT. The forecast was spot on but the thunderstorms never arrived. 

My wife and I share ownership of the 90 acres with my wife's sister in law so we'll only profit from half of the timber sales.

We had seven stands to move,  two were okay to leave as well as the two shooting houses.  Most of what we moved were from 16 to 25 feet high. Four ladder stands and three basket stands.  The move took nearly 5 hours from start to finish and yes the last hour was in the rain.

Good morning GTA! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Up at Oh-4-something CDST. A little slow this morning, having coffee. Pretty sure my dispatcher made a mistake on Friday, has me going to Benton, down by Little Rock, to do a Starbuck’s PM. They did this to the Ft Smith guy a couple weeks ago and said she didn’t mean to send him there. It’s a 3 hour ride for me, I’ll leave about 0630. So if it was a mistake, she’ll turn me around wherever I’m at when I call in at 0745.

Same here Jim. It's been over a year since we've been to church but we are able to stream the worship services and ZOOM the Bible Fellowship class, but we really missed the face to face fellowship at church.  We are eager to return as we've both been vaccinated now, for what that's worth. We will more than likely return next week.

Got a busy day today. At 8.00 am I have to help my former boss's guys unload a Corian top and help them bring it into the house then back to the shop to finish up some back splashes and then go and install the laminate top. In between that breakfast with my youngest son and grandson. Then back to the shop and start another top and hope fully maybe squeeze in some garden planting.

Good morning GTA! Up at 0440 CDST. It’s raining this morning, looks like it’s been raining all night, thunderstorms when I went to bed last night. I hope everyone is well & safe. I’ve got a service call at a Hollister store for a water leak. Hopefully the rain will stop for me to determine if the leak is from an AC unit or the roof. I’ve got rain gear, of course, it’s just a lot easier if the roof is dry & I find water in the units. Also have a Zoom meeting with the boss and crew.

Up at 7, coffee, GTA, feed the wood boiler again this week due to freezing temps at night. Off to work where we are relaxing the covid protocols although I still need to get tested every week due to contact with others. Pretty high winds today so Ill focus on yardwork and an online meeting tonight instead of shooting.

Do Good!

Good morning! Up at 0400 and checked in here to see what needed doing! Made coffee, put my face on and my eyes in. 😆

I was supposed to work yesterday, but got sent home due to a scheduling gaffe, so I took advantage of that by going for my every-other-week visit with my mom, which would ordinarily happen on Tuesdays. We have done this since my dad died 10 years ago, but these days, she is having failing health herself, and doesn't go with me for shopping and lunch anymore.....i go visit, and we have wonderful conversations and good coffee.....

At work, we are down to monthly covid testing, and that happens this afternoon.

I will continue my room demolition work, and try to get the electric mains removed today, time permitting. I really need to get the roof skin and sheathing down and get ON with wall demo, but spring rainy weather is making that diffucult!

About that, there is no doubt! :D

Of course, there is one caveat here....I am not really demo'ing the house....I am essentiall deconstructing a room, piece by piece, saving everything I can to re-use. Does that make me any less redneck? LOL

Good morning GTA! Up at 0400 CDST. We got plenty of rain yesterday and the temperatures have dropped a bit. Looks like it’s going to be cool and potentially wet the next 10 days. We haven’t had a spring last late into May like this In awhile. This morning I have my 0600 meeting with the guys from Ch**ch. Then I have to go back to a job I was at yesterday to check on a couple units. They have a roof leak and need a roofer, but I have to check on the units now that it’s not raining. This afternoon I have a dental appointment, so I should get home at a decent time.  ;)

Lizzie, that doesn’t make you any less redneck... from what I’ve seen, what would make you even more redneck would be to salvage all of that and then leave it in your yard for the next 20 years!  ;D
