    Yeah, I'll make it. If it weren't for my daughter we'd be there right now. But she's making straight "A's" and is lead on the dance team. She has made really good friends so there is no way that I could take her away from that. But once she graduates she's going to College (somewhere) so we'll move then.

    It was 102 with 80% humidity today and I had to mow the grass. I'm so looking forward to not having to take care of anything once we move.

    I'm about ready to hire out my lawn care ... maybe next year. :notsure:

    :eek: 102 at 80% you'd need a couple 55 gal drums to haul my melted down moose man ass. :laugh:

    I have a lawn company take care of the fertilizing and pre emergent but I "usually" mow it myself. I say usually because a few years ago I started to let someone mow the yard on my birthday as a birthday present for myself. But now I've got a buddy of mine that has a lawn service on his days off from the FD so I've been hiring him to mow the yard for the last couple of months. But now it needs mowed about every week and at $45 per mow I figured it's time I get off my lazy ass and mow the yard lol. I'll still get it mowed on my birthday though ;)

    :thumbsup:

    102°F & 80% humidity ... the only f’n way Chief Pal Guy would mow is watchin’ somebody else thru a window, in the AC, with a tall glass of iced sweet tea in my hand. I’m just sayin’ ;)

    Well shit, I’m out camping in central AZ and wish I could upload some pics but...service sucks balls.

    I miss this part of the country more than anything. Such unparalleled beauty.

    Spent the day out on a lake puttin around with a little fishing and cliff diving at the old hang out.

    Right now I’m watching a good lightning storm over the west end of the lake as it heads towards PHX.

    Boy and I caught some mud bugs but let them go and we are going to make s’mores here in a few.

    I needed this vacation
