    Man, I'm so used to cold that 68 feels HOT! And tomorrow's supposed to be 85!

    Presently working on the wrecked Baja Series truck. All I have to do is put fender flares on it to finish the cosmetic repairs.

    Think I'll procrastinate and have an ice tea...

    We're not getting all the nasty weather....going around me for the most part. Yes, Annie still hanging in there. She's going down hill, but thankfully she's still here and pain free (from what I can tell) thanks to pain meds. Thanks for asking. How're things in your neck of the woods

    Things are good here Susan. We Grand dog sat over the weekend and this is one time I wish I had a fenced in yard. All in all they were good pups. Other than that, all is good. The usual "everydays a Saturday" in retired life. Any trips to see the Grand kiddies coming up? You have a great night and be safe with all the bad weather around you.

    Good morning, everyone!!! Yesterday turned out to be gorgeous - rain held off until about 7PM. Then the skies opened up. Warm, even a little humid. Perfect.

    Enjoy the day and be safe!!

    Good Morning Folks.
    Two stops on the agenda today. Kermit goes in for his 1000 mile check and then it's to the body shop to get an estimate and make an appointment to get his bumper fixed. Should be interesting to see how close the Liberty Mutual (other party's insurance) estimate from pictures is compared to an actual visual inspection. More rain is on the way. Stay dry folks and be safe.

    HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO :rockband::taco::drunk:

    Good morning. A little rain today, maybe some TStorms. Not a lot going on today just a haircut and guitar practice. The rain held off till I took the pork chops off the smoker last night.

    Good morning all,

    A little skiff of the white stuff this morning, 30 degrees but going to warm up the next three days and be spring like. Travlr, I totally can relate to 50's & 60's feeling hot. Love that feeling as it means spring and summer are right around the corner. Humming Birds are returning, birds are singing in the mornings - AHHH

    Have a few maintenance around the house and garage from winter weather then going to CLEAN and re-organize the garage before starting the ongoing fire mitigation job. Hopefully will get to mitigation early next week.

    Have a great day everyone

    :pccoffee: Good Morning Porch Peoples! Beautiful day popping up here in Centex, looks like a good day to work in the yard, so I probably will do some of that. Have to adjust the garage lights I replaced yesterday, and re-aimed after moving the flags. Then some yard work.

    Oh first, it's play "Where's Waldo" with the truck.....:sadviolin:

    Happy Cinco de Mayo people!

    Avacados and tomatoes on sale so it looks like guacamole and salsa... and loaded nachos for breakfast.

    The message is updated this morning - "closed due to an illness". If I have to play Dick Tracy here, I'd speculate that my mechanic got Covid, as it went from emergency to illness... My desire to believe in the good (thanks, Mom) lets me wait a little more. Not happily, but I don't want to be that guy "why aren't you fixing my truck while you're in the hospital?!?!"

    A couple of weeks ago I had my newly repaired truck in for some last repairs and an inspection by a guy that I take stuff to because he has a rack and he is meticulous. As I rolled up to see how things were going, he opened the garage door to roll my truck out and said he couldn't finish... he was going to the hospital because he was bleeding from his butt. I offered to drive him, but he said his wife was all ready to go.
    Ended up that he had a foot of colon removed.
    Pretty weird, but he looks good now and has been out walking to get back into shape.

    Far as I know, just him and his wife. He might have an assistant, as there is a pic from a year ago with one, but they don't spend a lot of time on their FB presence or web; just enough to let you know about the bizniss. I'm hoping for a quick recovery, and then some news. I care more about news, than actual being done. We still have the RAV4, but it's not Little Big Red!

    Well, I said I was gonna do yard work, so I did some. Without spoiling everything, I took all the mulch out of the orchard, and then showered and went to Lowe's. But, since I only got the RAV4, projects are going to take more than one trip.
