    Today was a little do things kind of day! Built a wooden hanger for a hose on the west side of the barn (extra hose in case we need it) and replaced the axle on the little utility trailer that we have used the heck out of for the last 3 1/2 years. The axle I got was too long so had to cut off 3 1/2 inches. I knew 3/4" hard steel would be tough to cut with a hacksaw (I'm a woodworker, not a steel man). My wife said why don't you use a metal blade in the saber saw so I did -- the saw is a Bosch wife bought me over 25 years ago and it still works great. That made short work of shortening the axle. Thank goodness I have a drill press to drill the holes for the cotter pins.

    Garden looks pretty bad as the grasshoppers (or locust, your choice) are really attackin the tomatoes.. Peppers are bearing with a vengeance, but squash have about had it. Thinking about tilling and replanting squash for fall garden. We are drier than the proverbial popcorn toot, but guess most of the country is in the same situation! We have too much to be thankful for to be complaining about a dry spell. My dad always said, "Be patient son, it'll rain on the unjust too!"

    Tomorrow, I start working on the stock of the 336. Gonna use some of EliChaps ideas -- thanks Erik! All my work on the gun so far has been from stuff on Marlin Owners. Thanks to Travis for a good tutorial on field stripping the 30-30! Y'all stay well. John

    John, Sorry to hear about the bugs. I had same issue years ago and bought this black plastic netting (small holes) to keep birds and bugs off. Worked ok. Good luck! Jeff

    Hey, as far as the hoppers go, we got off lucky! Some of the folks around here tell me the hoppers have completely stripped the leaves from all their trees! UGH

    We've been busy as little bees in spite of the oppressive heat (been triple digits for last two weeks). We work early in the morning (up til about 10:30 or so) and then don't go out again until nearly sundown. One of the things we've been doing is hauling some gravel left behind in the ditch when they resurfaced the highway in front of the place. Talked to the state guys, and they basically said have at it! So we have hauled probably about 60 little utility trailer loads since the first of July. Our older dau, SIL, and granddaughter helped get the project started and younger dau was in one day to help as well. We're putting it down on the drive down to the cabin in hopes of cutting down water erosion (when it rains -- I hope). It also looks pretty good and it keeps the dirt from tracking in so bad. Here's how it looked this afternoon.

    Of course, can't stay out of the wood shop for too long, so made shooting stool to go with the shooting bench my SIL built for me a couple of years ago. It's a cube that is 16"X18"X20" so you can flip it to the height best suited for the shooter -- hey it's cheaper than an adjustable stool. Built obivously from mostly scrap and leftover pieces from other projects! Also included a shot of the 50 yard range.

    My wife loves doing wood projects as well, and her sense of humor contributes to great additions to our place. We have friends who love being around water, so she made this sign which hangs on back side of the well house and points toward the tank (which at least still has some water in it this summer). CAUTION -- there are NO lifeguards on duty! Y'all take care, 'cause we care! John

    As always, good stuff! It has rained again in South Mississippi. We're looking forward to October, and, so far, thank the Lord, no hurricanes!
