    Does your live oak tree shed huge volumes of tiny acorns, as mine does every year and is doing righ now?

    Good morning!!!!

    So that was yesterday, and this morning as I was driving past them, I noticed 3 other popular gas stations in the area that had prices posted of $3.099 a gallon, so I guess my Buc-ee's is still cheapest, but all are more than I EVER have paid in the past.

    Good morning!!!!

    This morning, I just filled up my 2017 Ford Escape with the most expensive gasoline to ever be put in it. Yep, same old regular as always, but today was $2.999 at Buc-ee's. I haven't checked prices elsewhere, but Buc-ee's has always been the cheapest in the area. I'm guessing that they just...

    HAPPY FALL Y'ALL!!

    National Weather Service says Denton, TX, is 49 degrees this morning, and I, too, am glad to see the cooler weather.

    Good morning!!!!

    Yesterday was another day of dire predictions from the National Weather Service. We were under a tornado watch most of the day, 2 to 3 inches of rain predicted, high winds, etc. When I was outside, we had a very pleasant breeze, even had some light sprinkles a couple of times, and this morning...

    Boiled peanuts

    I have been a peanut addict most of my life; keep some peanuts on hand here in the house at all times; very seldom a day goes by that I don't eat peanuts; used to buy raw shelled peanuts by the hundred pound bag and roast them ourselves at home. I've also had a reputation most of my life for...

    Good morning!!!!

    80 degrees this morning, going for a high of 85. How's that for a temperature spread? 🤣 And once again the weather prognosticators are saying it's gonna rain; sure hope they're right this time for a change. We're even under a flood watch until 7 p.m. today, supposedly.

    Ice makers-anyone know them?

    I think Oaktree is right.🤣 The ice maker in our refrigerator was replaced - again - yesterday, as is done at least once a year. And this time it took the technician a couple of months to get the right part from Sears. So for a couple of months I've been using the old fashioned ice trays and...

    Good morning!!!!

    Glad to hear that you're OK, David. I did read a little about there being an earthquake this morning.

    Texas Fall/Winter thread!

    Yep, it got kind of breezy here yesterday evening, the severe weather warnings repeatedly interrupted the baseball game we were watching on TV, then the evening news cast was almost nothing but about the severe weather warnings, high winds, hail, threats of tornadoes, etc. I finally saw some...

I didn't do it myself, but had the Mohawk laminate installed by professionals in our living and dining area in...

    Good morning!!!!

    If you don't have a garage you can put a car in, I certainly understand that. I grew up in homes with no garage, then lived in a small mobile home, then an apartment, so I never had a garage until I bought my first house when I was 28 years old and that house had a one car garage in which a...

    Good morning!!!!

    RoyJackson said, "With the exception of a Porsche 911 I owned in the 1980's-mid 1990's, none of my vehicles have lived inside." Looking around my neighborhood, both here and other places we've lived, that seems to be the normal situation, but I'm just the opposite. I REALLY LIKE to be able to...

    Good morning!!!!

    Aren't cars and technology fun? And I guess they get more complicated all the time. I'm currently driving a 2017 Ford Escape Titanium 4-dr SUV; bought it new with only ONE option and that is the Navigation System. Of course the Titanium comes standard with all the power equipment and bells...
