Thank you. I'll have two fingers of that 25 year old Macallan on the shelf there...

Wow! Since I showed up late for the pour, Jerry, can I sniff your shot glass? I never tried it before...

Good morning everyone.

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

Partly sunny, with a high near 83.

Mike, hope you had a very happy birthday. [:party]
Sorry I missed the party.
Came home from work and went straight to bed.

Larry, have fun building those critters and I have an endless supply of virtual retirement dollars to keep the bar well stocked here.

Rich, nice to see you here.

Grocery shopping today.
Mowed the front yesterday maybe the back today or maybe a bike ride instead.
Trip to Mom's and I'm sure there's a cigar and some bourbon later today.
Bid a day job in and I'll find if I got it later this afternoon.

Garbage truck exploded under one of our bridges yesterday.
Tried to bring the bridge down?
Delayed my first train about a half hour.

Have a great day everyone.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for the coffee.

Sorry you missed the party. Hell of a good time.


That sounds like a strange story about the garbage truck!!
Rich you should have had a some we were all here until the wee hours!

Weather in South Jersey sunny/73. Later 79.

Well I did spend time at the bench yesterday graining wood. Almost have enough done for the frame of the building.

Everyone have a great day!!

Rick thanks for the coffee. Hopefully no one was hurt in that explosion; must have been a sight.

Jerry keep going on the wood graining; your getting there. Should make for a impressive build.

Mike Happy belated Birthday. Hope you enjoyed your day.

Starting to warm back up. Upper 80's today and back up into the 90's this weekend. Rain storms around dinner time. Haircut, what's left of it, this morning and who knows what the rest of the day.

Have a great day everyone.

Rain and fog today in Michigan. My b’day went well girls, grandkids and a cake.

Today the Doll is off to the UP I’ll follow in a couple days. First time apart in our 19 years. She stopping off first for a hair fix.

Everyone have a good day.

Karl, didn't realize it was your birthday too.
A very Happy Birthday to you!

Here's an article about the exploding garbage truck.
Apparently it's CNG powered and the low bridge knocked the tank off and it went boom.

Good afternoon folks,

Rick, thanks for the Dr. Pepper. Happy that truck didn't explode with a train on top. Good luck with the bid.

Karl, a belated Happy Birthday to you! It is nice when they come around these days.

Jerry, have fun getting grainy!

It is another warm day here, not like yesterday's 106F, but still warm at 103F. It is supposed to cool off into the upper 90's later in the week. LOL.

I performed a Masonic funeral this morning. The Mason was a sheriff and had many friends. The Sheriff's department had 10 cars lights flashing and full off deputies in the lineup. The Sheriff's department presented full honors and placed a flag on the casket. The deputies looked pretty cool in their navy uniforms and white Resistol hats.



Have fun and stay safe.
mike

Good evening everyone.

Since we had Mike's party last night we should have one for Karl tonight.

The bar is set up with a fresh bottle of Henry McKenna 10 yo bottled in bond, bottles of red and white's, an assortment of cold beers and sodas.

Had a busy day today and I'll spend time in a bit in front of the stereo.

Good night and I'll see you in the AM.

I’ll have a Dos Equis XX por favor, chilled to near slush as you pop the top.

The Doll just called, sent photo of first construction on the place. Really excited to also have electrify to charge her “communicator” after running the new 100’ 12/3 cable thru the pucker brush from the service to the bed in a box (camper)

11 pm time to retire.

Interesting photo of ENGINE 18. All the creative ways to wear their masks. A hazmat instructor I had many yrs ago would describe that scene as “Standing in front of the B-R-T posing for holy pictures”. BRT=Big Red Truck.

I’d imagine the refuse company has an opening for a CDL holder, with good depth perception. And probably clean shorts.

Morning everyone

Coffee is on and water for the tea drinkers. Cold sodas in the fridge!

Off to have my XRAY done.

Looks to be a cloudy day in South Jersey 72. Later on 84. With some storms in the area.

Not a beach day but maybe a bench day!!

Everyone have a great day!!
