Good evening everyone.

Was sitting at the computer this morning eating my breakfast and heard a boom and the lights went out.
Transformer down the street blew.
Showering by candle light was a new experience.
Do you know how hard it is keeping a candle lit in the shower?

I'll see you all in the AM.

Good morning everyone.

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

Rain likely, mainly before noon. Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a high near 67.

Karl, thanks for those pics of some very beautiful scenery.

Hope all are well.

Have a great day everyone.

Sun appears to be nearing the horizon, the sky appears cloudless and ranges from orange chiffon to a light aqua in color, there is a faint layer of fog up to about 15í above the ground. The temp is in the mid 40s and the prognosticators guess that it may reach the 60s.

Mike, a ride here is merely a drive in the car, 4Runner, or my truck, Tacoma, which was the vehicle of choice for Sundayís exploit. No exotic vehicles in the stable these days although Iíve had my share of Mustangs and a magnificent Ď63 Ford Galaxie 427.

With today looking to be the nicest of the week, I can assume things will present themselves for attention outside.

Everyone have a good day.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Hope the transformer explosions aren't common.

Karl, thanks for the info. Thought maybe it was a motorcycle or 1965 Ford Mustang convertible.

Oil change cruise to Fort Worth was without incident, except an empty billfold!

Forecast is for 85F today. Sure wish we had some rain in the forecast.

Last physical therapy on my hand is this morning's activity. May go work at lodge this afternoon.

Have fun,
Mike

Morning Gents

Rick thanks for the java. A shower by candlelight; now that's a new one on me. Although 200 years ago that is all that they used, no wonder older people had bad eyesight.

Karl old cars are nice to have. I wish that I still had my '68 Mustang and my '65 Corvair, they would be worth a fortune by now.

Mike hope your last PT goes well and that it has helped the hand function.

Jerry, Tom, and Philip hope all is well with you.

A chilly 50 degs this morning with a high of 59 and rainy. Taking the Mrs. to Hobby Lobby today to do some Christmas shopping, yup you heard right, for a friend of hers. Other than that not much else going on.

Have a great day and stay safe.

Itís still morning in Wisconsin, so, good morning. The weather forecasters are confused and right now the 3 sources we get info from are all wrong as to what it is outside. I am on a new exercise program from the PT. Walking steps well actually climbing them? The foaling barn has 26 steps to the 2nd level. A circuit is up and then down. 20 done this morning, 10 additional tomorrow then adding 10 every day till I reach 100. After 100 we start timing. I am bushed from the 20 this morning, the 1st 8 were simple, not sure how I got to 20.

The slot track has 2 lanes of commercial digital track installed and operating. I made the LHS very happy the other day cleaning out his last set and extra track. The little guy was my helper and he was a good helper. Maybe he will enjoy this more as he really did help build it.

Another Attorney visit to finish off signing and funding the new trust this afternoon. Enjoy your day.

Hi all, some in and out sun this morning in lower MI. It may hit 60 today.....

I made a run across Lansing yesterday, taking some smoked fish to my son and picking up an Rx and a small amount of groceries. Road reroutes/detours seemed to be most everywhere I was trying to get, except in Lansing. The streets there are in terrible shape. Weird, too, passing thru the area of the Capital at noon and the place was strangely quiet. Usually full of folks and no where to park at lunch time with all the offices....no body, downtown was dead, no activity as everyone has been working from home for months. My first trip down there and it was unsettling.

TomO, wearing me out with that stair climbing. My only exercise since returning from the UP is jumping to conclusions. Qualifies me to be a political hack.

Everyone have a good day.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Breakfast of eggs benedict with fresh farm eggs, crispy Canadian bacon, hot buttered toasted English muffins and oh so good creamy Hollandaise sauce are on the counter.

Tom, that sounds like a lot of PT. Persist!

Karl, it is sad to here about downtown Lansing...

Larry, the hand is functioning well, thank you.

Alas, yesterday was not the last PT on the hand. I have a ridge of scar tissue along the bottom of my index finger that the therapist wants to work on. She said next week is the last...

It is 59F this morning, climbing to 95F this afternoon. No rain.

No agenda for the day, so many things to do.

Have fun,
mike

Good morning from a crappy day in Wisconsin, the winds are already into the 20ís heading to gusts of 40+. We may hit 70 and the weather folks claim this should be the last day in the 60ísfor the season. Bread baking day #2 since no one reported any side affects from last week. Doing just sourdough and a French loaf, but only 24Ē long, the ovens are not deep enough for the standard 30Ē loaf. Terry says I can have the ovens from 10 to 4, meaning I will run out of dough 1st. The dough is proofing as I did start just after 6 this morning.

The PT program is now tough. I definitely felt the pain in the muscles, well thatís what they are called, in my legs and thighs yesterday afternoon and evening. Around midnight I finally took some Ibrofeun messed that spelling up and hit the bed. Megan the therapist wants 10 done, a minute rest and 10 more, rest and on and on. She also told me the walking is not out she still wants 2 miles in 40 minutes or less. My beloved wants a treadmill and a couple other things as she doesnít think we will be getting back to the fitness center this season and the weather is changing so less outdoor walks. When I raised the eye brow last night when we were talking, she gave me that wifey stare, so I shut up.

Have a great day.
TomO

Good morning everyone.

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

Sunny, with a high near 76.

Philip, keep enjoying your time with the grandson.

Tom, would love a taste of that bread fresh out of the oven and I think you'll have less soreness and more progress on the PT as time goes on.

Mike, so many things to do sounds like an agenda.

Karl, nobody downtown is not the case in NYC.
Look a walk down 5'th Ave. last week to Trump Tower and back.
All the stores were open and a good amount of people walking around.
Tourists mostly and very few business types.
Also lots of stains from human feces all over the sidewalks.

Jerry, hope the DR. visit went well.

Bike ride, do a load of laundry and mow the front yard this morning.
Taking it easy this PM.

Have a great day everyone.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Will have a little something to go with the Coffee this morning.
Taylor Ham (Pork Roll) as Rick calls it with egg & cheese on hard rolls.

Weather in South Jersey is sunny/48. Later/75!

Work continues on the Mill.

Will have the results of the ultrasound early next week.

Tom the bread sounds delicious.

Philip your still playing housekeeper? Your a good man Charlie Brown!

I hope the rest of you are staying healthy, wealthy & wise!

Everyone have a wonderful day!!


Jerry
