Didn't get to do as much as I wanted today. Only thing accomplished was running another zone on the irrigation system out to the 2 new raised planters. I was hoping to get them filled, but ran out of steam.... the weed massacre over the last 2 days had me too sore to do much today.

The list for tomorrow is getting full ....

Drew, thanks for posting that trimmer string comparison. Definitely surprised at the winners.... I got lucky--- purchased the "weed warrior" string yesterday after returning the Shakespeare brand... which wasn't too good at all.

David, hope you and Sophie have a great time with your son/family.

No rain today. Plenty of dark clouds, but they never came together or form a storm. Chances everyday this coming week, Wed. and Thurs. have the highest likelihood of rain/storms. We are still almost 2" below 'normal' precipitation.

Everyone have a great evening!

Spent the night at my daughters last night as I had promised I would after she got her new home. Had a good night with some of her friends arriving for a session. Had to come home about 7.30 a.m. as my wife and I had appointments for 4th alligatoritis shots. Needed sleep after I got back from Doctors and when I woke it was raining so will be doing very little today. Truck booked in tomorrow for 15,000 klm service and nothing else planned except maybe undercoat the wall in the laundry. Need to do that so we can install some new cupboards before long. New sideboard arrived while I was asleep and the guys installed it in the loungeroom. That is for the 75" TV to sit on. Originally planned to wall mount it but it is just too heavy. Hope you are all well.

m_g: Randy(wag) nice rain what is dhobi day?

dhobi = Indian (Hindu) word for washing. It's a common Navy (well, Royal Navy + the RCN/RAN/RNZN who've also borrowed it) slang word for doing laundry or having a shower or cleaning something. (laundry soap = dhobi dust)

The RN used to employ cheap civilian labour onboard their warships to do menial jobs, such as Dhobi Wallahs from India. You needed to speak pidgeon-English to communicate with them. Anyway, the term stuck... even if the ship's laundry is marked "Laundry", it's still referred to as the Dhobi.

Another 'fun' Navy word is 'punkah-louver' which refers to the ship's ventilation and the round, moveable, ventilation 'exits' throughout the ship. A small example of a punkah-louver would be those little air-jets above an airline seat. :)

Darn pup loves water and when it saw it raining he just had to make some mud. Does he look guilty?

good morning all
nice to wake up to sound of gentle rain; been raining all night, soft rain, .79 on gauge which will give me a break
from watering for a few days.
It was really dry here so that rain I'm sure is entirely absorbed.
Should get to high 80's today and then three days of sun and high heat. So very glad we got this rain before it.
Then later next week a lot of stormy weather predicted, including next weekend. (fingers crossed for Ken's party)

have a long list for this morning, priority being getting through to either primary doc or endocrinologist to get them to order blood
work for me. Need to find out if sugar or cortisone/steroid level is off.
Did notice I've lost five pounds, didn't feel like eating much during that really hot weather I guess.

woke up this morning with zero symptoms of cold so think I dodged the alligators.
am thinking maybe tomorrow to go mow the graveyard again, this rain will have softened the ground just a little bit.
I promised pain doc I'd be good for two weeks and I really have.

Happy August everyone.
