    Probably a safe bet that if a county employee did not steal the loader they probably set up the theft.

    Hope not, we are dependent on US taxpayers for funds for our schools and roads since we have a small tax base, beings most of the county is public land.

    I hope not also but it has been my observation when it comes to big equipment theft it is usually an inside job and the person is caught. Hard to fool the PoPo.

    They may be able to get more images from other traffic cams along the way if they went to I-80.

    According to the radio, the loader that was stolen from our county was found along a road, did not catch where it was left. Good news. We should all feel sorry for the perps to fall in lock step with our new governor.

    Carpet is being installed now. Living room is painted, windows are cleaned and the TV wall mount bracket is on the wall. Up next is mounting TV to bracket and installing all cables behind the wall. My son and I cut the drywall for the electric and TV cables this morning before the carpet installers came. No need for dry wall dust on the new carpet.

    Afternoon all:
    Was picking up my normal mess of spring sticks in the yard, had to use the chainsaw to cut up part of a tree that came down in an opening just off the yard, first sweat of the year! Started the 66 and went to start the zero turn and it drained the battery, that's on charge now. Enough work for today, nap time! :rolleyes:

    The living room is finally at a place where the new surround sound system can be installed. I did install the TV wall mount bracket and prepped the drywall for the TV cable installation process.

    Good morning Susan, gang,
    Guess my miles driven each year post retirement was way less than calculated when I was figuring if I would save money getting down to one vehicle, saving maintenance and insurance/registration fees. Did my calculating based on I think 18,000 miles a year, but only went a little over 7,000 last 12 months, so saving even more. Happy about that, just too bad I had to sell my nice Civic. With hardly going anywhere last year, my average per month is under 1,000 miles/month now. Had the truck 37 months.

    Evening all:
    Ran the Tacoma through an automatic car wash, ran the Chevy truck through another automatic car wash, (getting lazy)! Got the zero turn started after charging the batt., picked up some more sticks, cleaned up the boat today, checked and aired the 1648 boat trailer tires and the spare, checked and aired the Chevy truck tires and the spare, checked and aired the Tacoma tires, and lots more spring THINGS to do! :facepalm:
    At least I got off to a good early start this year.

    Looking good Tom! :thumbsup:

    Carl: It was a week that brought a few extra pains to the body. Who knew that painting and cleaning windows and blinds used so many different muscles. All is well now. Going to fire up the system today and tune the speakers to the room.

    Worked in the yard Saturday getting up a massive amount of Live Oak leaves then went to the nursery and bought two Owari Satsuma trees.

    Need to get some bone meal ( fertilizer) and plant them today.

    Don't want to think about it but need to get my income tax records together and take them to the accountant.

    I'm sure this is political, our new Governor and controlling party are going to ignore the vote of the people and not allow the death penalty and working on going around rent control. All voted down by Kalifornia voters. Dictatorship? Maybe they should instead cut all the crazy ordinances that drive housing costs up!

    Just great to not have any rain for over 3 days now! Going outside into the sun... Alas, a new storm hits us Tuesday night here in SoCal.

    64 on my deck, snow is clear on the sides of it but not the lower end where I push snow that sheds off the roof and deck. Some rain expected up north here too, not much. Bulbs on the end of my mobilehome were up a little a few weeks ago before all this snow came, snow is melting off of them, they show a couple inches above ground now. Still almost two feet down towards the creek. Back is out so made an appointment with the bone cracker for Wednesday.
    Lost out on evilbay for a rare stove, it sold for $8400, I was going to raise my bid to $2300, but by then it was $3,000.

    Well, if I go up the hill behind my home, I can see snow on the nearby mountains (the ones over 7,000'). I am a bit closer to sea level and it is 76°F and wonderful outside (north county San Diego).
