    I agree. It does not look like there is a short bed AC. The ad was, I believe, an error.

    Nice day today after lunch, mid 60's, even thought to put some shorts on for a few hours.
    Checked the wood splitter out, runs after some choke action to clear the carb out. Can start splitting firewood now for a real early start filling the woodshed. Need to put the snow thrower away and get the rototiller out, gas the lawn mower up to suck up the debris off the lawn.

    Odds are not in your favor, but best of luck to you. When you see the lights in Reno ... I paid for a lot of those in my younger days.

    They want more, good luck! :D

    Yesterday was the first day of trout and we made the annual hike up along the Lehigh River. After the heavy rain we had, the river was up and way off color. We only managed 7 trout between us and fishing was super tough! I had 2 trout get off after hooking them, and only maybe 3 other bumps, could have had my limit of 5 but only caught 4. It's very rare that we can't get limits out of there, but we're lucky we got what we got under the circumstances.

    Stream fishing opens last weekend in April here.
    Caught my first gopher of the year yesterday. It kept tearing up this one area, so finally got tired of it and found a hole large enough that I could poke a trap down. The day before, I had looked at one open hole, so thought I would bait it, so in the time it took me to go pick a bit of onion top, the gopher had come back.

    We had some big trees taken down to make room for the garage. Spent a few hours each day yesterday and today cutting up the logs for firewood. Dang I feel OLD right now. Sore everywhere.

    Chicagoland is notorious for high gas prices. I think it's a tax thing.
    A hangover? :confused::p Seriously, good luck! But still stick a twenty in each shoe so you can be sure to get back to airport. ;)

    Either they missed us, or I slept through them! The garbage can is blown over, but he yard isn't full of branches, so they may have missed us for the most part.

    We were supposed to have storms and actually had an 8 hour tornado watch in the DC area. No storms but it is dark and gloomy out there this morning.

    Good morning Carl. Best of luck fishing with you fishing buddies this week.

    I took a drive yesterday to W. Kerr Scott Lake to check out the campgrounds. Bandits Roost and Warrior Creek. The first is 'OK' if tenting, the restroom is centrally located, so a ways away. Great for RV campers. Nice no-cost showers.
    Warrior Creek opened the next day so I could not check it out.

    On the way back I was caught in serious rain on I-40. I saw cars spun out, and I hit a patch of deep water and thought I was next. I got control back but dang I do not like huge shots of adrenaline. I was in the Subaru with same tires as truck. Good choice. Michelin Defender LTX M/S.
    Got home and had HARD HARD rain and thunderstorms again. Good to be home.

    Happened to check my online banking, tax refund already in just a week, filed electronically by my tax people. Only a fraction of what it was a year ago, no state income tax paid again. Dont know how I avoid paying Kalifornia income tax, must be under a threshold.
