Good Morning
32 with a high of 35/and partly cloudy skies, possible snow showers this am.

That’s as far as I got this morning before I had to rush out the door. It was actually snowing with the sun shining.


I had to race out the door and head to the airport, ended up in Palm Beach by lunch time. 160kt winds with a 100kt headwind component made it a long trip. Of course we didn’t get an equal push going home.

Tomorrow I’m going to ferry a plane for maintenance, but it’s not far, should be finished by lunch time.

Then I can get to real work, like changing the hydraulic oil in the tractor, and rearranging the equipment in the shop, storing mowers and getting the snow plow ready, installing and testing the new controls in the smoker.
29° outside now, not getting any warmer overnight.

I've done absolutely nothing all day today EXCEPT for listening to 50s music on Sirius-XM and watch youtube.

Tomorrow is the month end (sorta) shopping trip to North Bay and a free lunch (ribs with sweet potato fries and cole slaw).
Only 8 stops including lunch. Leave here at about 8:15 A.M. and get back around 1 or 2 P.M.

Luckily the tractor takes the same 12" wiper blades that the Jeep took. I have a couple of spares for the tractor now that the Jeep is gone. Need to change the front one sooner or later this winter. New to the tractor on the front and the front one to the back. Go ahead, call me cheap.

Good evening! 43˚F now after sunset and staying in the 40s all night.
Late PT today, worked on balance. The final clean-up activities at the estate house and this week a meeting with the accountant rearranged my weekly PT schedule but still getting 3 days in. Hopefully this will be the last of the clean-up and my activities at the house will be finished and my cousins can move in and take over. However there goes my Home for the Holidays, sad but relieved. Emotions all over the place.

On my quick connects (Pioneer Ag type) I can usually just place the male connector against a piece of steel and shove the teat in to release a bit of oil and then get the connector to work. It does dribble just a bit of oil.
That was first thing I have tried
Couldn't. Should eat more meat, less chocolate 😁


Nice morning, -5 C / 23 F
Forecast has promised additional snow for tonight

Head is a little dizzy and the nose is running. It's my "standard" as I get cold. Sometimes even have a little blood from noose. This time too.
My FIL passed from cancer, like 3 years back. He was heavy smoker and for him first symptom was blood running from nose. My poor wife when she sees that my napkin is red ... After a while she realizes that it nothing, just cold, but that first horror in her eyes ...
Really sorry for her


And I still would like to throw some drops of oil in y-day's discussion about language.
I like communicating with different people, sharing knowledge, diversity is great. As far we are +/- on the same page. :) OK, I have nothing to talk about with some future boy from big city

I am always fighting with my kids about correct use of our language, I like to use it in a neat, clear way, straightforward. Formulate your thoughts and express them clearly, that's is what I teach to kids and try to do myself as good as I can. Crippling language is great sin in my eyes.
And then comes tough part.
I know for myself, how easy is to make mistakes to translate to foreign language.
For instance "house" and "home" for us is the same word. And our people very often mix them. The same is with "weather" and "time"
I dont have great imagination, I am talking only about things I see. :) For instance word "plow" we use only in agricultural meaning. We "push" or "clean" snow. :) Which is kinda funny, because we should say that we are cleaning streets from snow, but we are "cleaning snow" :)

You gentlemen are by far most polite, inclusive, supporting internet gang I have seen in my life. Probably you are thinking that grammar nazi is a kind of abuse. Make no mistake - it is. But not in my case ;)

Have a nice and productive day !

Coffee is done brewing. 15° with clear skies this morning. Heading to 35° with partly cloudy skies. Yesterdays sun melt some of the snow. Even though it never got above freezing. Did a little puttering in shop. Never have been able to do a full conserve energy day without doing something. Take Sassy for grooming today. Will do some Christmas shopping while out. Dirt road I live on will to turn into a mud bath when it get above freezing. Hope to get home before that happens.
Blue Jay colors come out with snow on the ground.

Everyone stay safe and well.

Good Morning All.
