    Good morning!!!!

    Good morning, a little cool for a July morning at 49°F. Going to a high of 73 so they say. Wind SW 20 gusting to 40 mph. Increasing cloudiness. The grocery store opens at 8:30 and I need to resupply the truck, so I will wait until then to leave. Normally I drink my coffee black, but I have...

    Good morning!!!!

    Alien, you know what they look like and what they will do to you if given the chance. Their mouths are designed for chewing through bark on dead trees to get at the grubs underneath. If you listen to the Canadian Goobermint, they will tell you that there are no pine beetles in Ontario. That is a...

    Good morning!!!!

    Got my mowing done in 2 hours, what used to take me 3 hours and a fuel up. I sure like the z-turn. I will be out of here shortly after I post tomorrow morning.

    Good morning!!!!

    The haul is about a 16 hour rounder plus loading and unloading and the money is good. If the crew works with us, so far they are not, we can claim 24 hours in a day for wages. Yes we get paid to sleep. It is good to see that most everybody is here that was here before I went to work. Has Ron...

    Good morning!!!!

    daugen, a few years ago I watched 6 mosquitoes fly off with one of my cats. A couple of days later 4 black flies brought it back. Our worst bug nightmare is pine beetles. They will take a chunk out of you. They aren't very gracefull fliers and their landings are hard, so you can feel them land...

    Good morning, the low temp is 51 and going to a high of 72°F. Wind SW 2 mph. 40% chance of showers.

    Good morning!!!!

    The grass is cut, the dump run done and now for the you tube rabbit hole. On lactose intolerance, at first I thought it was just an allergy to coloured cheese. Now I know exactly what it is all about with me anyway. I can have frozen yogurt in small quantities, as well as almost any white...

    Good morning!!!!

    Way back when I was a youngun my Grandmother (she was a photographer) gave me a Kodak Brownie camera. That camera lasted me about 10 years, when she traded her Leica in on a Zeiss-Ikon she gave me an Argus twin lens reflex. I was forbidden to touch the Zeiss nor the Leica. After she died, Dad...

    A 'cat door' will probably fit in the bottom of your slider. That would solve both of your problems. Yours & the cat.

    Good morning, low temp 55 and going to a high of 68°F. Wind N 8 mph. Mostly cloudy. I got the mower back last evening, $389.oo. His labour rate including pickup and delivery is only $95.oo/hour. I am just waiting for daylight and will cut the grass. I would have preferred a little stiffer...

    Good morning, low temp 66 and going to a high of 77°F. Wind SSE 9 mph. 30% chance of showers. North Bay trip was thankfully uneventful. I called my dispatcherette and she assured me that my truck would be in the yard at 9 A.M. on Saturday so that I can transfer my stuff into it. Then over to...

    Good morning!!!!

    North Bay trip all done. Outside temperature 80+°F and the temp inside the house is 75. I can handle that. A/C quit on the '13 Dodge, yet the '01 Jeep Wrangler still blows cold air. 12 years newer and the A/C can't keep up. :mad:

    Good morning!!!!

    i have a tin 'garden shed' for my genny AND the 20 gallons of high test gas I keep with it. Where the exhaust comes out of the genny I cut a hole in the shed and put 1/2" hardware screen over it and held that down with pop rivets. A NO SMOKING sign resides on the door as a reminder. The shed...

    Good morning, low temp is 64 and going to a high of 84°F. Wind W 2 mph. Sunny. Going up to North Bay this morning. The month end shopping trip. The wood room didn't get done. I did think about it, so that counts a little bit. :ROFLMAO: Have a safe day all

    Good morning!!!!

    Good morning, low temp 49 and high to 75°F. Wind calm. A mix of sun and cloud. I took the roof off the Kioti yesterday and found that the fan and motor are too small to retrofit something else in its' place. $610.oo + tax for a new fan. I will check fawcett.ca, first. I think Monday we will...

    Good morning!!!!

    Good morning, low 59 and high to 66°F. Wind SW 5 mph. 60% chance of showers. The plan today is to remove the roof from my comfort cab and see why the high speed doesn't work on my heater fan. Kioti wants $610.oo + tax for a replacement. There is no warranty so I might as well use some redneck...

    Good morning!!!!

    Dump and town run done. Wow! The mosquitoes are out in full force and brutal today. Of course it rained this afternoon and the power was out for 3 hours. The generator ran for about 2.5 of the 3 hours. I called the outage into Hydro-One (the power company) and they came out and wiped the rain...

    Good morning, low temp 51 and high to 64°F. Wind ESE 13 mph. Showers. Got the new sweeps installed on the trailer yesterday and painted again.

    Good morning, low temp 54 and high to 70°F. Sunny! Wind SW 4 mph. My leaving date has been pushed back a week. June 5th, load at midnight and deliver in Timmins, ON at noon on the 6th. The dispatcherette wanted me to load at midnight and be in Timmins for 7 A.M. Totally impossible. Takes...

    Good morning!!!!

    Well, I finally got the sweeps wire wheeled and painted with black enamel, just waiting for the paint to 'kick'.:sleep: It is an awesome day outside and if some dummy hadn't busted his brand new z-turn he would probably be cutting the grass. :mad:

    Good morning, low temp 49 and only going up to 54°F. Wind N 9 mph. Periods of rain or drizzle. The mower got picked up yesterday, buddy will fix it. Probably at my expense seeing as it was operator error. He took the coulter with him as well. He'd never seen a double pan coulter. That was all...

    Good morning!!!!

    It is raining right now, I'm glad I cut the grass yesterday. At the tail end of the grass cutting I hit something with the mower and got stuck at the same time. Got the mower pulled out with the Kioti and lifted the deck. Yup, bent a blade and possibly a spindle, too. The guy that sold it to me...

    Good morning, low temp is 36 and the high to 64°F. Wind ESE 3 mph. Sunny. I will cut the grass later after the fog burns off a bit.It isn't a heavy fog, just enough to let you know that the air is warmer than the ground. I saw this dime sized black thing on the floor last evening that had 8...

    Temp tonight is going down to 32°F. Frost warnings are up. Didn't do a blessed thing outside other than move the Dodge so the oil guy could fill the tank.

    Good morning!!!!

    Good morning, low temp 46 and the high to 55°F. Wind NW 17 gusting to 23 mph. 40% chance of rain and it is raining now so I would assume there is a 100% chance of rain. No grass cutting today, too wet. :mad: If the rain slows down later I will go rock picking instead. I got the rails for the...

    Good morning, low 59 and high to 84°F. Wind WSW 3 mph. 40% chance of T-storms, again. I guess I am not going to cut the grass like I wanted to today. I'll work on the floor for the tractor instead. That is a raging river running across the road. Outside now to enjoy the early morning tunes...

    Good morning!!!!

    Didn't get the platform done, didn't even get started other than taking measurements. The bugs know it is going to rain, they are thicker than fleas on a dogs back and quite hungry. I did get the boat/flatbed trailer moved to its' new home for the summer. I don't do well in the high heat. I'm...

    Good morning!!!!

    30 years ago when I first came north (Toronto, ON) if I got bit by a blackfly I would swell up around the wound site (usually on the backs of my hands) and get real dopey/sleepy for about a day. Now, 30 years later they land on me and are a general nuisance but don't bother biting me.

    Got the neighbours 2 stumps out. The first one was 2' in diameter and cut off 3' up as per my instructions. The second was 18" high and 18" in diameter. Took 2 hours from door to door. She is happy and that is all that counts. She is also my goodie maker in winter. Black flies are out with...

    Good morning, low temp is 62 and high to 86°F. Wind E 3 mph. Sunny! I will uncover the trailer and put all the tools back where they belong, seeing as I now have to wait until fall to finish that project. Off to the neighbours to remove a stump today. Going to have to do it the hard way...
