Mornin Jeff. I hate those nights. Some times it is best just to get up and get on with it.

I have the kids at the house today but am at work this morning. Had a ball yesterday. I am hoping to get out of here around noon today so the silliness can contiue for the afternoon.

Have a great day all.

Good mawnin’, Jeff, Rick, and all of TRT!

Jeff, what a treat to have you start off the thread today! You may not feel that way because you didn’t sleep all that well, but we’re glad you’re here.
Thanks for the coffee and breakfast burritos. I’ll add a fresh fruit cup that is bound to cool people off and tickle their sweet taste.
Enjoyed reading about the new toys for your birds.

Rick, hope you can get off work early so you can go back home and have fun with your kids! Anything special planned for today?

Our temps this week will surpass the temps in Vinnie’s area. Tuesday we will climb up to 99! Shees. I hope we get the rains that are predicted for Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

Enough complaining.


Lots of love and hugs and peace to everyone!

Hey Gang!
Top of the morning, and a whole big wide open HAPPY SUNDAY TO ONE n ALL!

I know I had to force myself to nod off n on till after 11 last night.....but then SOLID SLEEP won out....sorry Jeff, I'm just a highly trained and dedicated professional sleeper.

Coffee is going, and there'll be food, I'm sure through the day......just not yet.
I have my alarm set for you Rick.....if you'z ain't home giggling by noon, we'll send in the TRT SARs team to fetch Ya.(y) Don't you be missing no Family fun time now.....

You best be having your favorite book, or be watching Mr. Blanding in front of your AC today Cath, with some pop sickles well stocked......I prefer the red or purple ones if you please.

Just ain't getting what they say we are supposed to be getting round here.....sure looks like we should, and get drips from the sky.......but the thunderstorms just haven't showed up......YET. All yesterday looked for all the world we outa been getting dumped on, but little to no wet clothes to show for it.

Shopping early, then fire up the smoker.....PLAN-A mind Ya.

Let peace n grooviness get out of control.....Laugh your butts off,

I don't know if'n Y'All UP/DOWN/OVER and ROUND THERE can smell it yet, but the 'smoking process' is well under way. I often use Apple Wood, Hickory, or Mesquite for this process, but uhhhhh, today we'll be going a wee different route......see if'n this gives Ya a wee hint?


I will say the majority is oak, but Mulberry, and American Walnut as well as...... :unsure: 'American chair rung/legs' will be found in 10,000 years from now when they do their carbon dating and analysis of this primitive fire site.:ROFLMAO::cool:
The show must go on.....NOTHING STOPS the grill'n round here!(y);)

Almost afternoon here all,

Just put down about 25# of grass seed in the fenced in back yard area,,, have a few spots in need of filling in. Hard raked most of it in, the rest got hand spreader’d just cuz. Imagine I’ll get the area all nice and “grassy” just before fall shows up and have winter and dawg tinkle undo my hard work ,,, sigh.
Sprinkler on the job and will get moved until dark or so. Kinda want to give the seed all their help it can get before Ma Nature brings hard rains to wash some of it away before it sprouts.
“Fired” up the shop a/c when I got out there, so I’d have a comfy reboot zone ( as in now ) .

A bit after I sat down for a break, I had a “mebbe I’m done with today’s outside stuff now”,,,, hood thing I sat a lil longer,,, my brain is ok with going back out there for more…👍🏼.

Might fire up the grill for dinner,,, have a few choices for grub 🤔.

‘Zon delivering a solar water fountain setup( small solar panel and pump) so I can make the DIY solar fountain for the hummingbirds here. Plastic Wastepaper basket, plastic plate,the solar fountain and a 1 liter pop/soda bottle,,, If the hummers here enjoy it like the ones in the lady’s video,,, I’ll be happy.

Got a wonky security camera on the outside shop wall,,, looks like this OFR ‘lectric tech will navigate a ladder and swap a camera out,,, it never ends , haha..

Hope everyone is having a great day👍🏼

Pain in the butt putting them up......LOVE them.......pain in the butt taking them down, and sad......LOVE it again when THAT is done. Took down our demolished 10X30 PARTY CANOPY we lost in a storm last week. New, PERMANENT replacement coming soon. (y)

WOW, that worked up a sweat......hmmmmm:unsure:.....maybe the freshly opened pool could help with that?

The chair gave it's life with honor......THAT was a groovy meal we just got up from......'smoked' Pork loin 'open face sandwiches', mashed potatoes, with broccoli and cheese, swimming in brown gravy. Yeah, STUFFED!

Got a movie night ahead, so there'll be pop corn shortly.....well, maybe not too shortly.

It’s about time for my book discussion to start, but I’ve got to say that you guys really get some stuff done. It might be a tie between Hack and Jeff. Yes we count Vinnie doing the honors of Perry’s birthday today.

Not sure if the pain and location, but a tens machine help. We have one but not as nice as my old physical therapist. I loved it after treatment, it relax my muscles and then they do hit or cold packs.
