HUH..... 馃 .....Must have headed back down the hallway?
The cooler parts of the fall are trying to edge this way, but every once in a while a 'warm day' pops in......gonna have uppers 40 to 50, with a 69 degree day in the middle......nights are dipping to the low 30's, and next week we'll be seeing our first highs in the 40's.

How's Everyone doing remembering THANKSGIVING is just next week? Got our turkey yesterday, and spent the night in the van while we adjust our freezers to make room for a 20 pounder.....hope I remember to bring it in before I head off to work and actually get it in a freezer.
So far we're just expecting the Sams to be joining us.....but we remain 'flexible'.

Getting near THAT time to start thinking about getting ready for work,

Good nawnin鈥, Hack, and all of TRT!

Thanks for the coffee and Cap鈥檔 Crunch. I have Cream of Wheat with added blueberries, walnuts, cinnamon, and a tad of maple syrup. Hot chocolate for your commute, Hack.

Thought I鈥檇 pop in early today. Thanks for your compliments last night.

Jeff - I had no idea how large Macaws are, or how LOUD! Do you have ear protection?
Hope the vet can figure out what鈥檚 going on with your wire hair doxie so he feels better soon!

Lots of love and hugs and peace to everyone!

Morning all 41 here heading to 45 for a high. No fog but cold and damp, work will probably be miserable.
Order day so it will be crazy as usual.
Hope the day treats you all well, Vinny good look at LFS

I almost replied to the new thread today but realized it in fact does not read "What method do you check your sanity? I wouldn't be much help in either case.
Probably not

I forgot I also picked up the Kreisel tank. It鈥檚 custom made and done very well, 30x30 has area for biological filter and a protein skimmer which is how you get the water movement instead of a pump. It has lights. He went to macna and met the builder and had is made. I got it really cheap. In the past I made my own which I still have. But this is nice

Hot dogs for dinner folks......nothing Y'All need a table cloth for.....just feet up comfy food.

Was on the low side of the ole chill-o-meter at the creek with a fir breeze assisting it to stay down. Low of 30 tonight, high about 55 tomorrow, and Thursday 70! And another (!) reserved for Friday that will then be in the low 40's! Mother Nature is picking up some of our Vinnie's bad habits.....humor'ly speaking.... 馃榿

Doug you're starting to keep some strange hours prowling around here in the dark in the wee hours......really drug my feet this morning in case you wanted to 'play through', but you vanished.......hope this TRTI passes soon.

Time to go on the hunt for something sweet,
Peace and giggles,

Think of when you go to a public aquarium, the jellyfish tanks and how the jellyfish stay suspended in motion. Seahorses fry also need to stay in motion for the 1鈥檚t 14 days, if they snuck air by floating to top it will kill them. The motion keep them moving and suspended.
The guy that built this builds for public aquariums mostly.

Good evening, guys!

Vinnie - You got some real beauties today!
That contraption to use in your seahorse tank is impressive.

Hack - Your temps are much like ours鈥 up to 72 on Thursday, the a high of 58 on Friday. The
nights will be in the 30s. Not nearly enough rain, though. The trees are in glorious color right now. I鈥檒l try to get some photos.

Grooviness to all, and to all a good night.

PS: I never liked scrapple as a child. And now I鈥檓 off the hook because 1) I鈥檓 a veggie 2) not much down here anyway. 馃槀

Ha ha, Atlanta trip is back on, Kristine鈥檚 mom has step to many rules for us concerning covid and masks if we visit someone unvaccinated. Meaning we would have to wear a mask in her house. It鈥檚 her house and I respect that but we both don鈥檛 want to deal with it.

Good night Cath! This has been the best year in YEARS for fall colors......in recent years it's gone from 'summer' straight to 'winter' weather.....the change was fast, and perhaps 2-3 weeks of peak color. This year we had fall.....a gradual transition like the old days, and our colors have been breath taken....been colored up since late September, and still worth a Sunday drive to look at them. WAY TO GO MOTHER NATURE! Take THAT 'global warming'!
