...and I got daffodils popping out's 45º /8º outside,

my Fluke meter case is kinda dirty ,and I don't know how to clean it,

it rained for four days and one feedbin is full of water and rotting corn,

neighbors decided yesterday to get rid of a commercial stove and figured we wanted it, my sweetheart went over there to look at it and is now helping to wrap their presents with them,

last week the engine in my work truck...blew up....good bye to $3k

and I'm low on pipe tobacco.

On the plus side, I found my 1/2" poly rope
...way out in the back, cleverly concealed by the snag some female had dragged up there last Summer....
and I have plenty of ice cubes

C,mon Tuesday

It's 82 deg F outside, the sun is shining away, life is good, and I'm stuck doing a commercial take-off. Merry Christmas to all.

It's Christmas eve. Merry Christmas to all!!! I have family over. My daughter just got engaged to an awesome fella!! My wife is busy doing the hospitality thing. We are having a wonderful family time. We have family visiting from B.C.. First extended family gathering for us in 15 years. My heart is over-joyed.
Now think about our boys overseas. Give a prayer up for them. May they know we miss them, love them, admire and respect them and on this night our hearts are with them. God bless them all!!
A very Merry Christmas to all and may you all be richly blessed in the coming New Year.

It's probably about 40-something here. Everyone has been telling me to prepair for New England winters. With what I've seen so far, I'm calling 'em a bunch of sissies. [Linked Image]

Doing the holiday thing, family flew up here from the dirty south. Gonna go into a coma soon from eating Christmas cookies. Wrapping presents that I've procrastinated on and tending the fire. Family, friends, and cats are over-running the house.

Life is pretty good. Merry Christmas all.

My wife was Scrooge Friday. She called in an emergency service upgrade (125 to 200) on a new commercial pool they had promised for Christmas. A couple guys came out and did the whole thing in less than 4 hours. The inspector signed it off and the pool opened. She gave them both a crisp C note in a Christmas card for the extra effort.
It is always great when things have a happy ending.
Merry Christmas to all.

If we're ranting .... I always looked forward to a White Christmas, but that hasn't happened in a while.

Aside from that I hope everyone will have something to be thankfull about this season.

Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season to All!
