Good morning TRT. Sunny and a high of 78F today and 45% humidity. Got all the peaches canned yesterday. Liza did most of it, I was the designated peeler. I think she will be on the prowl for corn and tomatoes at the market today. She is off through Monday and wants to do corn relish and spaghetti sauce.

I will make a trip out to Vineland to check in on my folks then Home Depot to plumb up the RO/DI. The reef is all pinned together and ready for some mortar when it arrives so I best get the tank cleaned and scrubbed. I thinking maybe it would be a good idea to re-seal it while I have the chance. It has been 5 years since it was done. A close inspect will be in order.


Have a great day!

No Sir, sorry, I am not close enough or I would definitely be dropping in today. I have NO musical ability. My son plays drums, guitar, and bass. My best friend is trained in classical jazz guitar and plays anything that makes music. He no longer thinks in chords, he thinks in sounds and his hands make them. It sickens me. I can draw but would never hold a pencil again if I could make music. I don鈥檛 play guitar, I play with it but the result is rarely music.

........ahhhhhhh, 'experimenting'! WAY COOL!!!!!:cool:

I was told long, LONG ago by one of my older Brothers that I 'was tone deaf' and couldn't play a guitar. THAT actually hampered me.....about 5 seconds. Maybe not......BUT I was born with the gift of knowing 'How to have fun'. And kinda became my goal in life to help others have fun. .......Mate, You'd be a jam'n member of 'The Band' withing minutes!!!!!!馃:cool:

I futz around on a cheap bass I have but don't read music so I struggle.
When you locate THAT Doug, hope in and set the 'Way Back' machine for Hack's Place.....I'll have you reading music within 10 minutes, or yer money back.....Which is always FREE by the way.

I single handedly save my marriage today. Liza and I have been very happily married for 7 years鈥ait, nope 8.

So I am on a mission to Costco to pick up some things Liza needs for canning and a weekly supply drop for my folks. Minding my own business just being an adult for a change.

Well, doesn鈥檛 Lucifer himself lay a cruel and wicked trap!!! There at the side of the road is鈥 yard sale!! Not any old yard sale, this is the yard sale from Hades concocted by the devils own hand to stray my good intentions.

Of course he had left a perfect parking spot I easily pulled into. On the lawn was an early 70鈥檚 Challenger with the original 340 in it. There was a 1932 Ford coupe sitting in primer with a 350 Buick in it, and a 2001 Yamaha R1 that was mostly original. Some nice mags and car parts filled out this trap of a sale. Everything was priced well. I knew it was dangerous to stay. I spoke with this devil temptress for a while but got back in the truck and drove off.

I texted my wife and told her what a good husband I was being. Last time I asked her if she wanted me to bring home subs and turns out I bought a 528i from a dealership.

She texted back an XO

I texted back an XO.

Then I texted back that if she bought the Yamaha while I was running errands I wouldn鈥檛 be mad amd to let me know if she needed me to send her money鈥

Thank God she laughed.

Afternoon all,
Rick, that so sorta parallels my life with stuff trying ( and sometimes, does) to follow me home.
Most times it was at auctions , but then my wife was with so I either got the 鈥淭HATS a good buy鈥 or get a eye roll . Now I have to solo at auctions, but I think Blyth will be looking down upon me and I鈥檇 be getting the same vibes . She was real good with 鈥渋f you need it, get it鈥. I used to have to work up my spiel and ramp up into getting the green light on 鈥渟tuff鈥, that turned into 鈥渋f I needed it , I was cool to get it.

Cath emailed me saying she is having trouble getting on TRT.. fingers crossed she busts thru what is keeping her out. I鈥檓 no expert on the new platform of TRT, sigh.




Spent the mid morning at mom鈥檚 tended to some lawn maintenance. Some grass seed and some cleaning/trimming around the edges on the large corner lot. She has a mowing service show up to lower the green stuff, those guys get paid by the job so it鈥檚 a quick zero turn mower team zipping thru then on the next contract lawn.
Some aspects don鈥檛 get the care of 鈥渞egular鈥 mowing.

Been trying to rain all day, might happen in a few hours. I鈥檒l take what I can get.

Since Indiana is a 鈥渃an鈥檛 sell cars on Sunday鈥 state, I鈥檓 going to head east about a hour tomorrow and check out pickup trucks at a mega used car place( and not be bothered by salespersons. I like to look on my own first , then return to do the salesman stuff when they are open. Since new trucks are ungodly expensive, and now in short supply due to the chip shortage thing , my plan has been to scope out trucks a few years old. Yeah , prices seem to be at a premium level ( again due to the chip thing), but looks like a couple years old truck averages easily half of what the when new sticker price was.

No word from the zero turn mower place in Arkansas, they said they expect a shipment ( when I called them in August) in 鈥淪eptember 鈥. Ok, it鈥檚 4 days in , but,,,,, I know they will call when stuff arrives, but I will bug em in a week or so to keep em on their toes.

Dawgs were fed and now crashed out, Senior Doxie Buddy is snoring/wheezing in deep sleep land.
Max, the newest one to the pack here , HAD to get in my recliner mid post here. Had to put down my phone at attend to his needs. Scratch his neck, then belly and finish with a 鈥 my hand with moving fingers is gonna git you 鈥 play fight with him. He bailed and back to take a nap鈥

On the the afternoon,,

Hope everyone is having a

OOOooooooooo.....THAT would truly be a test of love.
Give Hack the Challenger and Daddy would play with the 32 coupe. Could you tell if'n the coupe was a 'fiberglass kit car', or metal bodied?

Funny how everyone in the house is asleep, been a long week and it鈥檚 catch up on needed rest. I was trying to watch a movie and couldn鈥檛 keep my eyes open.
It doesn鈥檛 seem as hot now that we have power and the main ac unit is on.
did get the skimmer hooked up to the tank.

It was an all steel original body. It had run and drove at one point with a straight six but much had been disassembled to drop this engine in. It had been put together quick with used parts and little forward thinking. Used parts were straight from the wreckers and not even cleaned up before install. He seemed to be a great project finder but not so much at seeing them through. I wondered if he just lacked the patience to finish it.
