Headed South down the middle finger of the state. Moderate traffic, 15 mph crosswind. She’s driving. I was feeling tired, still she got going. I’m wide eyed and hanging on tight now. We’re heade home for a long weekend for early start on July the month of over a dozen birthdays will head back mid week. Left trailer set up as if we’re just gone for a bit so “they” think we’re liable to be right back.

The basement guy dropped off a trailer full of equipment early then split. Texted”back later, maybe”. I toldtheDoll once he’s done and bills us I’m going to take 6 weeks to pay him. Positive note the power company is hard at work running our extension.

Hopefully everyone has a good day and weekend.

Good Afternoon.
Rick thanks for the soda.
Nice day today high only in the low 80's for a change. Had a good amount of rain last night; finally so maybe the grass will come back.
Made a trip to the hobby store late this morning and loaded up on scale lumber for the diorama. Should have enough to finish and then some.
Helped the Mrs. with some stuff after lunch.
Dinner on the grill tonight with the first of the homegrown veggies.Yum yum.
Have a great the rest of your day everyone and stay safe.

Arrived home safely only to find another case of false promises, the older son’s pos Jeep Cherokee’s still in the barn. Since early May, “just for a couple of days”. Gave him “H” a couple weeks ago but the other one he bought needed more work than he first thought so... Monday texted it’ll be out of the in a couple days, shouldn’t have let him know we were going North. It does appear he’d been here and prepped it to go.

8:30 and raining. Delayed mowing until tomorrow.

Everyone have a good evening.

Good morning everyone.

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

Chances of rain and t-storms all day with a high around 90.

Karl, good luck with your situation.

Larry, sounds like a busy day.

Mike, I see you're up early to probably get started on all those chores.

Tom, enjoy watching the little one use those skates.

Jerry, don't think it will be a beach day.

It's Monday again.

Have a great day everyone.

Rain continued all night and it's quit here at 7:45 but still grey and dark skies. Sun and 80 forecast later.

How about some pancakes, sausage, bacon and hot coffee and TomO's diet pop this morning?

Everyone have a good day.

I'm posting these pictures for Karl that he took on his recent trip.
I'll let him explain them when he gets a chance.

Love the picture of the bar. Not made like that anymore. Good morning from Geneva, Illinois. I am on the deck overlooking the Fox River where my sister is house sitting for her sister-in-law. Had to get away from our place in Wisconsin and Illinois is open into phase 4 which basically seems to be everything. Enjoy your day.

Morning All,

Rick thanks for the coffee.

Karl breakfast was great, thanks.

Rained all night and so far today. We really needed it. High today in the upper 70's.

Our local High School is actually having their graduation today in 3 sessions to keep the number of students at 50 with only 2 guests being able to attend per student. At least they get to walk across the stage and get their diplomas. What a strange new world that we live in.

Going to be a modeling day today with continuing the work on the barn and silo.

Everyone have a great day today!!

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

The Sahara sand is here. It is so thick it looks like fog. I went to the grocery store and hardware store this morning and was shocked how bad it was. I've been sneezing like crazy.

94F today, 5% chance for rain. Muggy.

I have a stainless steel grill I bought in 2004. It has been great, except the non-stainless steel screws rusted out and the thing collapsed. Today I bought stainless bolts to fix it.

Have fun,
mike

Rick, thank for posting the pics. They are from Calumet, Michigan in the Keweenaw Peninsula. It was the hub of the Copper industry.

Phot #1 is Shute’s 1890 Saloon. Built in 1890 it’s features the 30’ solid single plank mahogany bar and all Tiffany glass back bar. The last time I was there Mr Shute was the fire chief and closed the bar to give our crew of ne’er do wells from the South, trolls from beneath the bridge, a tour of the Department. It was Feb or early March 1979 I believe. There were over 325 inches of snow that had fallen, snow was like tunnels, amazing.

Second shot is the 1898 firehouse, now a museum. Many beautiful buildings in Calumet made of the dark stonework. It’s a National Park now I believe the designation is. The cooper mining was gone by the 1950s. It’s an interesting area with many old abandoned buildings, mine sites, etc., houses and many buildings in town are in poor shape.

Just a quick update. The Dr's and I decided on infusion therapy. Once every 8 weeks I will get an IV with medicine, the whole process takes about 4 hours. This will be for the rest of my life. Unfortunately there is no plan B.

On the bright side I feel very good now and hope to return to modeling tomorrow.

Good morning everyone.

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

Sunny most of the day highs in the low 90's and maybe some rain later in the PM.

Roland, glad you're feeling better and hope this therapy keeps it that way.

Karl, thanks for the pics.
That's a great looking bar.

Mike, good luck with the sand and grill.

Larry, definitely a strange new world.

Tom, hoping for another relaxing day on the deck.

Jerry, should be a beach day today.

Nothing special happening here.

Have a great day everyone.
