Krusty,

Actually, I'm looking forward to 6 months of serene "toy car" peace, while that little car sleeps the winter away..........
But thanks for your B'Day wishes for , she'll be pleased to hear them.

When I told her today was a National Holiday, she called me horrible things!............LOL !!!!

29 at 8am, hi today 63, 0 rain at 70% humidity. Looks like more Indian Summer on the way. I just got up. Feel like I been in wreck, ache all over and head stuffed up. Wife stuffed up and nauseous.
We have not got the call we were told to standby for. I could care less what Dewine orders. Will use common sense and do what I want. I’m going Deer hunting even if I miss season by a week or two. Next season I won’t be physically able to do anything but sit.

It was a cold 18 on the coast this morning. Late to the show as I had to start work early to deploy an application.
A lot to read this morning.

@Drm50 - oh man, bad news. Sorry hear of it. Please accept my prayers that you and missus come out of this ok.

@Krusty - so that is where my magic smoke went. Electronics do not work when it escapes. Do you have the hypodermic needle to put it back in? Those are rare.

@Pig Ninja we need a little tractor porn on this thread.

I saw two cows eating a stop light in the squares. Does that mean I am Borg?

Slept in, it's 0820 hours. 49 above with sunshine and 44% humidity. High will be right around 60. The wind is still gusty. Another beautiful Fall day on the Plains. I'm out of coffee filters, forcing me to drive into town. Paper towels leave a weird taste, so I don't do that. Cowboy coffee on top of the woodburner will make your hair stand on end. There was a pound of IMR4227 sitting lonely yesterday on the shelf at Farm and Fleet. I think I'm going to run in and buy it just because. I'm glad to hear Mr and Mrs Drm50 are gonna live. Everybody I know had the Coof made it, including my Daughter.

Have a powerful Thor's Day.

This morning was a chilly 30 with a heavy fog that has morphed into a steady and slow drizzle for the afternoon and a high of 34. Feels more like late October goose hunting weather.
@Tomray - Happy Birthday to Mary Ellen
@Padraig - Our Springer's name is Pepper - black spotted paws
@Pig Ninja - I'd love a tractor - my wife's Subaru can sit outside so I can make room for it in the nice warm garage.
@Maineiac - We are Borg! - Are we not? - Seems like most Forum members think like a collective on some level.
@Drm50 - praying for your recovery and strength!

Thanks to the Governor of MN - our plans to spend Thanksgiving in St. Paul are now in stasis! @northmn - hope you folks can find a new Gov next election! But I understand that it's tough when the whole state is out-voted by the big cities!
Friday is on it's way!

Sat in the stand yesterday from sunup to sunset with a very short noon break. Saw nothing. Seems like to see anything during the warmer weather one needs a strong spot light. My SIL got a deer but it was the last 65 min of legal shooting time. I heard the shot while I was getting my stuff gathered and out of the stand. Nice doe. He wanted more deer this year as they are a family of 5, but got two so far. Thought about it and decided I was in no rush to go out today. Strange season, got my buck at 0715 opening day and that was it. Not to upset over not getting another deer as we had left over venison from last year. Wife cleaned the freezer an we found stashes of venison from a couple of years previous and used that up as well. Had a permit deer and a buck last year so we are going with just the one this year. As MN allows party hunting I thought maybe I would shoot one for the SIL.
Timrekah. Understand your frustration. I imagine Governor Walz is wondering what he got into as he has had to deal with both the COVID and the little uprising in Minneapolis. He handled the riots quite well. When the mayor requested aid he sent in the National guard, State Police, and even the Forestry. Now the COVID. My grandson is on quarantine with the rest of his family, and his school has put a coach on suspension because she knowingly let a positive COVID case play volley ball. Local hospital is filled now and we are up North. Worse towards the cities. It is a world crisis, as Trantor has had to deal with another shutdown. New vaccines are looking promising and hopefully this experience will be ending.

DEP

A warm 57* this morning.
NY firearms season opener tomorrow.
Not as excited as usual this year and I don't know why.
Kinda bothers me.
Expect that I'll get more excited when I get to the cabin this afternoon.
Good luck tomorrow NY hunters!

Good Morning All,
I slept in a bit this morning..........
It was 42 Degrees at 0645 in CT with Gray skies, but that was just the false dawn.........skies are bluing up now.......

Thanks for all the birthday wish's for Mary Ellen..........She/we had a very intimate dinner last evening at the Blackbird Tavern, with only 7 other diners in the room.............Great Steaks, and a really good Red Wine blend...........She was also served the biggest pc of Carrot cake I've ever seen, to celebrate her B'day.........
It was "Take an Older Woman to DinnerNnight", and I was having some fun with that ................She'll get a chance for retribution in 3 weeks, when she takes an older guy to dinner.........LOL!!

I decided I need a new chain saw.............My Homelite Super EZ is 41 or 42 years old, and still runs well, but I've been eyeing a new Husqvarna 435E for about 3 months................So I ordered one, and it should arrive today.......

@MrFixit,
Those Trebuchets are interesting..............I think I need another one, as Vooch still has control of my late wife's uncle's Treb..........
All peace talks re: that Treb have failed.........Trying to reason with Vooch over that Treb, is like talking to Khrushchev............He just keeps bangin' his boot on the table!!
So, I guess I'll cut some of the neighbors trees with my new chain saw, and build another one.

Covid numbers are still the focus of the news this morning............It's time to financially cut China loose, and stop buying any of the tacky junk they send here!..............

Thanksgiving will be just Mary Ellen an I...............we/she had invited another friend of hers, but with the Covid numbers spiking, I told her to "let sleeping dogs lie", if she gets no response from her friend.............

Well, its a bright brisk morning now..........Good day for a 3-4 mile walk...........

You all have a fine Friday.............

Tom
