Wife showed me footprints she found in some of her flower beds. We are dealing with something much larger than a coon….. Hmmmmm. Plus a duck “disappeared“ today.

I had finally decided I needed a hydraulic top link. ordered it early last week, installed it today. Should have done this a long time ago.

RNG, glad you are taking your time finding a van....I know you only want to buy once. I've found that I prefer most options....until they break. Most will last.

Prayers for Elon, our team, our country, Ukraine, and for putin to get over short man syndrome.

Rich, nice top link. I've been enjoying the mile flat track races. Just wish the corners weren't 1 line.

Hope to take son fishing this Saturday down in Port O'connor Texas. Salt water. We usually stay in the shallow bay system.

63F and clear @ 23:30, heading down to around 55F in the overnight.

Was warm this afternoon but there was a nice breeze and it was comfortable again ... probably due to the dry air/day's low DP's (38F ---> 58F)

LWS claims today's high hit 89.6F, supposed to be a tad warmer tomorrow (90F) and then even warmer on Friday (92F)

Got potted plants around back all watered first thing, wasn't long before the squash and 'cukes looked like they really appreciated the drink.

USPS delivered Airtag and keychain for The Airhead, still have to set that up.

Was able to muscle radial arm saw head free, eventually cut enough 2x's for decking almost 4 six-foot shelves (have 6 shelves total) and got those all put on the metal horizontals then transferred the plants that were on a (essentially new) piece of 3/4 plywood over to the 2x decking.

Water Buffalo refilled and moved over to the northeast planting bed. Also watered asparagus.

Five or six more gallon cans of paint moved from around back to up front for disposal.

Hopper feeder refilled.

Newly repainted bluebird house put up at the Nest Box No. 1 location.

Moved some equipment around to back.

Did some more string-trimming and raked up leaves and debris up in front of shop. Just took that up a little bit ago before I got my shower and dumped it at compost pile.

Phone and apps all updated.

Schedule some bills for payment, then probably see about getting more seeds planted in pots, and unpack that plant order.

Weed kill in garden area looking very good ... (y)

Hope everyone had a great Wednesday ... ;)

52 high of 80 today I think ground still very soft. Not sure what I’m doing today but will try to enjoy it.

Prayers for all silent or spoken our Country Ukrainian people

Have fun fishing Kyle

53° with clear skies this morning. Heading to 89° with lots of sun. Got most of the house work done yesterday. Grocery shopping early. Then Dr appointment. Then finish cleaning house.
Did not take long for Peonies to bloom. Brought this plant from our previous home. Over 50 years ago.

Everyone stay well and safe.

Good Morning All.

good morning all
you first have to get peony ants, then come the flowers...
not sure of my eyes but I think there's a tiny black ant on that one flower

long, fun but tiring board meeting last night, send off for current head of board, nice pot luck dinner, my store bought desserts went over well.
Our one Greek board member made home made octopus salad, my was that good, and not chewy at all.

next couple of days going to be very warm. Haircut this afternoon, not much else planned, maybe mow this afternoon. Been a while since I've mowed
since it stopped raining. And finally the fiberglass repair kit came in so likely going to get a coat of that on. Now have three coats of underlayment. Have no idea how many top coats needed. slowly grasshopper....

coffee going down but slow to wake up

struck out going to American Legion building yesterday with my old flag. No outdoor containers, just a lot of places to park for 20 bucks.
I'll call them today and find out what their procedure is. Reminds me I need to work on new flag.
my order of 100 little four inch flags came in, I'm ready for July 4th.
