Sun and cold is the forecast, it's still mostly dark with some clearing to the east that we can see.

Took care of tax things yesterday. 3 week backup at the tax place. Left our packet of stuff and came home. After dinner, home made chili, we went to a concert at the grand daughter's school, was ok. Not hearing well lately.

Everyone have a nice day.

Good morning from cold So. Wisconsin where it is -2f degrees and a big wind chill I have not checked on those numbers. I am in the cave as I donít want to see GMA that my wife is glued to. She missed the debates last night.


Oh, my!

Brian said via text he was fine last night until he started reading the text messages offering condolences. Ruckus was Brianís rock for 13 years. Brian wanted to be independent even though he always knew we were there for him. He has succeeded but has claimed over the years Ruck kept him grounded. When Brian flayed his tendons in his guitar wrist and hand Ruckus was there for him. Rick, I never felt like you or what others have said to me about pets and how close you can get. But I know my son is going to have a hard time. Thanks to all.

Enjoy your day
TomO

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Have a good work week.

It rained all night and is still going. Cold at 42F. I think I'll stay in today, because there is so much to do.

Have fun,
Mike

Good afternoon!

Sorry to hear about Ruckus Tom. Fun story about the dog onstage! Certainly no stage fright.

Well I'm off for 4 days, not certain where to start.
Cold and clear out....Maybe more coffee!

Have a great day guys!
Philip

Thank you Philip. Ruckus loved the stages and crowds. Brian figures between playing on stage or being in venues over 13 years that Ruckus went to over 400 events. Brian was trying to explain that he was trying to tell the Vet that but the Vet said that wouldnít have caused Ruckusís hearing loss. We were told by the band manager that she probably had more pictures of Ruckus on stage then she had of some of the band members.

Enjoy your days off.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Sunny and temps in the upper 30's.

Philip, enjoy those days off.

Jerry, are you in the pink?

Mike, hope the rain has stopped and you got those indoor things done.

Tom, didn't realize you got that much s@#$ so far this year.

Karl, I still haven't got my W-2.
Must of got lost in the mail.
Called work and they are supposed to send a copy this week.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning from cold at 6f degrees but warming this afternoon to high 30ís. Wind chill. has us at -8 but the sun is very clear in the sky this morning. Plumbers are coming this morning to add a gas line in the kitchen for the stove. We are all electric and were off grid till we sold. After today the house will have natural gas and by the end of March it will be attached to the grid for electricity.

Rick thanks for opening. This snow season we got record amounts in October, 1 event but huge, November was a record high, December was a record low, January was normal but many events that accumulated. This is not bad, North Central where MarkB is and where we moved from may be double ours. I donít miss that much. I have to move some xmas bins to allow access for the plumbers. Have a great day.

Sunny and 15 this morning in the mitten. Had a text with pix yesterday from our lot in the UP where it was -13, but sunny. 4 feet of snow.



Our masonry contractor had the blocks delivered for the basement. It was to have them there while the roads are frozen as weight restrictions often last until late May or early June.



The roadway to our lot.

Exciting news for us as it's been months since there has been anything going on up there.

The Doll is off to the antique store today, it's their winter Cabin Fever sale. I'll have dinner ready when she gets home.

Good day all.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Yesterday was successful indoors, but still more today.

It's a bright 29F this morning, headed to 52F this afternoon. Love the sun.

Stay warm folks, those -F numbers make me shiver.

Have fun,
Mike

Hey guys, been a short spell. Work was flat out, week off became helping family.
Didnít read back and catch up yet.
Did see more going on and folks come back. Awesome.
Did see a bit about Ruckus, Sorry on that. I got a 26 pd bobtail here, I know heís 16 and going on a hundred, but he doesnít. Hard things to lose good pals.

Speaking about pals, got 2019 Who on, second big glass of wine, prepping models to paint.
Wrap up your day well,
Cheers,



That's fine, it'll make another trip kid.

Early evening

25 here in South Jersey.

So I threw a couple of logs on the fire. Nice in here now.

I'm having an Eagle Rare and sitting by the fire.

There's cold ones in the fridge with the soda.
Red wine on the back shelf nest to the Bourbons, Rye, Scotches.

If your around stop by.

Thanks Jerry for keeping the place warm. I will toss some more logs on when I leave. The Eagle Rare is a fitting drink for the end of a good day. Had a good fish fry as is the Friday Wisconsin tradition. Terry had walleye and I had perch. Have a wonderful evening.
