    Good morning!!!!

    35°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 54° today. Near 60° for tomorrow, but possibly some rain. Not sure what I'll get into today either. It's definitely a target-rich environment. New building looks great, Doug. I like the colors (colours). Congrats.

    Good morning!!!!

    39°F and clear-ish skies this morning, going up to 72° today. Wife has finished her dog training schedule for the year. She doesn't bother scheduling anything from late November through December, as most people have so much going on this time of year that they start cancelling and wanting to...

    Good morning!!!!

    45°F and partly cloudy this morning, going up to 68° today. Father-in-law's funeral went off very well yesterday. Started the morning running to the bakery in New Baden to pick up four dozen doughnuts. The funeral director had called Tuesday night to tell my Wife that they usually have cookies...

    Good morning!!!!

    I've found that a 40 grain .22LR stops the possums we have over here just fine.

    Good morning!!!!

    There are a lot of things that people say will get rid of skunk smell. The only thing we've found that works decently well, through entirely too much trial and error, is the peroxide/baking soda/dish soap mixture. Wife had an old Sheltie years ago that was getting sprayed once or twice a year...

    Good morning!!!!

    39°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 56° today. Going to get up in the mid-60s tomorrow, and low 70s Thursday and Friday. I'm OK with that. Not a bad way to start December. We finally heard from the cemetery yesterday afternoon. FIL's funeral and interment will be tomorrow morning...

    Good morning!!!!

    Condolences on the loss of your kitty, BEF. Kyle, when I read your idea, the first thing that came to mind was, "What could possibly go wrong?"

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    "Tactical," "operator," blah blah blah ... hey, at least that stuff is based on something that's actually real. I'm just glad we seem to have finally gotten past that phase of painting everything green and labeling it "zombie" stuff.

    Good morning!!!!

    29°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 57° today. Parked the car in the garage yesterday for a brief period. When I went back out there, I could still smell skunk. So, I'm back outside again for a few more days. Fortunately, no severe winter weather in store for us this week. Starting...

    Good morning!!!!

    34°F and clear skies this morning, getting up to 49° today, and back down to 36° now. There was a brisk wind blowing all day, and it felt much cooler even in the sunlight. I did get some of the leaves wrangled yesterday afternoon, but it was too windy to follow up today. I did some errand...

    Good morning!!!!

    35°F and partly cloudy this morning, getting up to 56° today, and back at 55° now. Cooler tomorrow, then a slow climb into the mid-60s by the end of next week. Thanks for all the thoughts for my FIL, gentlemen. It is very much appreciated. We got all of the holiday decorations out and started...

    Good morning!!!!

    We had 20°F and clear skies this morning, and got up to a whopping 40° for all of about five minutes. 34° now, and will stay in that vicinity all night, then head up to 57° tomorrow. Thanksgiving was subdued for us this year. Wife got the call early in the morning Thursday that her father had...

    Good morning!!!!

    Happy Birthday, David.

    Good morning!!!!

    When I still lived in Granite City, they started a then-new recycling program. They gave every household a small recycling container for plastics and glass. The first two weeks I put stuff out, it seemed like they were only taking one or two things out of it and leaving the rest. I talked with...

    Good morning!!!!

    40°F and partly cloudy this morning, going up to 62° today. Nice. Expecting some rain overnight. Temps will be warm in the morning, then falling through the day tomorrow, only to warm again for the weekend. Wife is starting to cook today; cranberries and pies are on the list. We'd noticed a...

    Good morning!!!!

    25°F and partly cloudy this morning, going up to 52° today. Watched a very colorful sunrise in my rearview mirror on the way to work this morning. Speaking of which, on my way to work yesterday morning, I hit a skunk about five miles from the house. The pickup truck in front of me hit it first...

    Good morning!!!!

    30°F and cloudy this morning, going up to 44° today. Didn't feel like I got a lot done this weekend. Spent much of Saturday running errands for The Wife. She had started cleaning out the spare bedroom downstairs, planning to move her sewing room down there, across the hall from my studio. She...

    Good morning!!!!

    24°F and clear-ish skies this morning, going up to 49° today. Looks like we'll be back up in the upper 50s for the weekend. I am usually pretty good at keeping my violent temper in check, Ken. However, someone being disrespectful to my Wife is the surest way to get to see my ugly side. Glad...

    Good morning!!!!

    38°F and partly cloudy this morning, going up to 48° today. We got a few of those patchy showers yesterday evening, but nothing substantial. One came down pretty heavy, but only for a couple of minutes before it stopped. Got a lot done around the inside of the house yesterday evening...

    Good morning!!!!

    Yeah, one doesn't have to look to deep to figure out why US test scores are quickly on their way to the septic tank. Too preoccupied with social engineering instead of teaching them the stuff they'll need to succeed in life.

    Good morning!!!!

    Temperature here in north STL city just dropped by 20° in about 15 minutes. We went from 72°F to 52° now, and some scattered rain showers are starting to pop up around the area. There goes our warm November.

    Good morning!!!!

    60°F and cloudy this morning, going up to 69° today, then falling through the afternoon and evening into the 30s overnight. Supposed to be some rain coming with that cooler air sometime after noon. The only thing I saw on the radar this morning was some snow making it's way across Ontario. Looks...

    Good morning!!!!

    37°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 72° today. This is going to be one of those nice days I wish I would have taken off work to enjoy. Wife and I stayed up way too late last night. She had a late training in St. Charles MO (60 miles one way), and I was working in the studio until she...
  25. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    34°F and cloudy this morning, going up to 60° today. We'll be in the lower 70s tomorrow and upper 60s on Wednesday, then mid-40s for the rest of the week. Some rain possible today and Wednesday. Was windy and upper-30s to low-40s here all weekend. Didn't get much done outside at all. I did get...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    I like shooting my H4895 .30-06 loads much more than the H4350 loads. It makes my '03 Springfield a much more enjoyable rifle to shoot, for me anyway.
  27. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    33°F and cloudy this morning, going up to 43° today. Too windy here to burn anything today, so I'll have to find something else to occupy my day. Shouldn't be too difficult, as it's a target-rich environment. Wife is going to be in Granite City most of the day. The hospital called in hospice...
  28. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    39°F and partly cloudy this morning, going up to 49° today. Possibility of some snow flurries later today. Cool for the weekend, but back in the upper 60s by Tuesday. No idea what that tube is they're bending in that video, Drew. We're making heat exchanger tubes for a furnace manufacturer on...
  29. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    55°F and light rain this morning, going all the way up to 59° today ... which is where it is now. Heard one of the voices on the radio this morning use the "s" word for the first time this season with regards to Friday's forecast, but only for areas north of STL. Not interested in any of that...

    The day the music died.

    Graeme Edge, drummer and founding member of The Moody Blues, has died at the age of 80.
  31. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    42°F and cloudy again today, going up to 68° today. Rain moving in overnight will also bring cooler temps for the remainder of the week. Highs in the mid-40s forecast for the weekend. We've been busy at work here, too, Kyle. We just got a new all-electric tube bender installed, and it's up and...
  32. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    I feel for you, Randy. My Wife has been enduring that from her brother lately, too. It's not bad enough that she has real stress from their father's situation, now he feels the need to try to make it all about him and how terrible his life is. Some people just want to be the center of all...
  33. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    41°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 73° today. Nice weather here all weekend. Got the chicken coop floor repaired on Saturday. Got most of the fallen sticks and branches picked up, and burned some of them on an existing pile from earlier in the summer. Slept until after 9am Sunday...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    That was a fun report, Don. Interesting data as well. Also curious what one has to do to get a time out around here. 😮
  35. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    30°F and clear skies with some light fog this morning, going up to 55° today. Nice weather forecast for this weekend will help a lot with all the outside stuff I need to do. Lots of tree debris from recent storms that needs to be collected and burned. Will probably mow one last time on Sunday...
  36. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    Yes. It looks similar to this one (internet pic). It's on the wall in the sunroom, just inside the door. There is no access to the house from the garage, so the sunroom door is our main door. The green LED indicator is under the center of the big white button.
  37. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    28°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 54°. One of the voices on the radio suggested we may hit 70° or better by Sunday and Monday. I'll be OK with that. Speaking of sewing, RNG, my Wife bought a new machine yesterday. It's a Brother NQ3500D sewing and embroidery combo. It's a bit more...

    The day the music died.

    Yeah, not a widely known guy, or instrument. I've always wanted one, a 12-string Grand Stick. Just always end up spending my instrument money on something else.

    The day the music died.

    Just learned that Emmett Chapman, inventor and builder of the Chapman Stick, died of cancer on Monday.

    Good morning!!!!

    30°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 52° today. Definitely chilly here. Mostly_, my Wife heard me using language inappropriate to repeat here, and stuck her head out the door to ask what was going on. When I showed her the broken part sticking out of the hose, she said, "Oh," and went...
  41. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    Tried draining and wrapping up the hoses this evening, and broke the hose reel by the garage door. It's a plastic connector on the reel, and the metal hose connector was stuck. My attempt to free it with pliers ended up freeing half of the plastic tube from the other half. It's still stuck in...

    Good morning!!!!

    Wow, Doug, that is quite the colorful sunset.
  43. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    37°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 50° today. Looks like we'll be dipping down just below freezing every night for the rest of this week. Sunny and 50s every day, though, and back up into the 60s for the weekend. The haircut thing is definitely an ongoing struggle, even for someone...
  44. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    37°F and clear skies this morning, going up to 50° today. There was no rain in the forecast for the next week or so, but now I see they've slipped in a slight chance for mid-afternoon today. The boy slept right through both my attempts to drum him out of bed and his mother and girlfriend...
  45. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    45°F and cloudy and windy this morning, going up to 57° today. It is supposed to be sunny today, but that only lasted about maybe 15 minutes while we were eating breakfast out in the sunroom. Some dark clouds rolled in and it got very windy. I really need to get some outdoor stuff done today, as...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    Wife has one of those, too (the .22 magnum version). She never carries it, though ... not the least of reasons being it's a rimfire, but she inherited it from her late uncle, so it's kind of a keepsake to her. It is interesting trying to shoot one of those things.
  47. PJSprog

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    My Wife has one of the original version. It had a lot of failures-to-feed when she first got it. Seemed the magazine was too loose in the well, and would move with only moderate pressure from squeezing the grip. Eventually sent it in to Ruger, and they fixed it no charge. No idea what they did...
  48. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    We did that when I was young, too, Randy. We'd wear goggles and the thickest clothes we could find. Most of us went to a local surplus store and bought used BDUs. We had a "one pump rule," and no head shots. It was probably stupid and unnecessarily risky, but man did we have fun. Fortunately, no...

    Good morning!!!!

    52°F and rain this morning, going all the way up to 55° today with rain expected pretty much all day. We're on the back end of the swirl now, which seems to have stalled from it's previous northbound direction. Kyle, it seems like it never took much to get The Eagles arguing amongst themselves...
  50. PJSprog

    Good morning!!!!

    48°F and rain this morning, going up to 57°. Looks like rain off and on through tomorrow as this mess coming out of the gulf continues to spin around near us. Wife was at the hospital much of the day yesterday. Her father seems to be improving. Thanks for the well wishes. I don't get around...
