    Morning Pops. Morning Fellas and good morning to all who stop in and check out the thread.

    Hump Day today, had a good day yesterday with the Boys. Went to Wendy's, which I can live without to be honest, and bought lunch for the Boys. Reason being, they have Frosty's on sale so we got Frosty's all around! Lots of happy little faces around the table yesterday.

    Jobs, Leon, dbrp, Xelda, zrin, Trouty, ksk, RGV, Coach, RWB, Ranching, SW, John, Jan, Corso and Colo, hope you guys are all in good spirits today.

    Everybody, have a great Wednesday, tomorrow is Thursday and we head towards the weekend. Always good news to me! Have a great day everybody!

    Afternoon Pops and friends. Yard work is a terrible thing but still preferable to dealing with the public. I can't stick them to the side and fix a glass of tea, sit down and unwind. Even though the yard is outside, it's still nicer to me than some customers.

    Leon, I didn't mention your home improvement projects because I would go slap nuts on you. I have watched so much HGTV that I'm looking to improve every house/yard I see. I was watching an episode of Bonanza one day and was puzzled by window placement and lack of curtains. They were using it to shoot at Washington Redskins, so I couldn't hold that against them. Glad to hear you're feeling up to golfing again. We take that as a very good sign.

    Coach, I too suffer from BSODD. I'm regularly having an internal conversation telling myself not to go down certain aisles. Don't go down that aisle! But, I need to check for a certain product. Which one? The pet aisle. OK, but get that one item and leave! After permission is granted, I ignore myself completely. LEAVE! Nuh uh. Hey, if you go to those websites from your email, you can scroll down to the bottom of the page and click unsubscribe. I had to do that quite a bit.

    Glad you had a good time, ABQ. Have a good Wednesday everyone!

    Another cheap knife to help out in the garden: A regular old bread knife!!!! I use it to clean my mower deck, amongst many other uses. Works great for cutting sod when fitting around sprinklers and such. I get them at Walmart for 88 cents!!!!

    Reminds me of a story about my wonderful Father in law!!!

    They were building a road. Had it all mapped out. A couple huge oak trees in the way, they were fixing to cut 'em. Until Richard got ahold of 'em. Seems as if it's illegal to cut big old oak trees. Anywhere. So, he got involved and they had to move the whole doggone road!!!! Ain't that a hoot!!!!!!!

    I have no idea if it's just oaks, or just big ones, or whatever, but here in the state of Texas it is illegal to cut down big ol' oaks. Of that I am certain!!!!!

    Morning, Pops and pen pals. I played a full round of golf yesterday and didn't do too bad considering I hadn't played much lately. It was a lot of fun and felt good being back out on the course. Today I'm going to the optometrist to get fitted for a pair of glasses. Hopefully they can allow me to see normally or close to it. Y'all have a good day.

    Morning Pops and everyone else. Had to go to the city yesterday to get my ankle/foot orthotic and felt like the cat turned loose on Manhattan streets, I thought the old people here were funky drivers. I think I am officially no longer trained for city driving. You get used to it, kind of drive with an edge and your head on a swivel with all of the "nope, don't like this lane, let's try that one over there...…..I'm sure that driver won't mind" and "oh hey, here's my turn".

    Y'all make this a fine day and if you can't, reach for the top shelf, life's too short for cheap whiskey.

    Morning Pops. Morning Fellas and good morning to all who stop in to share a Thursday with the thread.

    It is my hope that all are well this morning. Looks like it's a little cloudy today. Might get more rain, we'll have to see.

    Youngest Boy is coming over today for supper. I guess we are having Chicken Salad. Not like Chicken Salad Sandwich, which I love, but Salad with oriental chicken on it. I, of course, wanted Tacos. Not so much.

    Jobs, Leon, dbrp, Xelda, zrin, Trouty, ksk, RGV, Coach, RWB, Ranching, SW, John, Jan, Corso and Colo, sunny side up y'all!

    Everybody, one more day and then the weekend is here! Maybe find something to do and spend a few hours having fun. That's never a bad thing. Have a good day everybody!

    Afternoon Pops and friends. Mother Nature is on a tear, so praying everyone is safe in the coming days.

    I did a lot of yard work yesterday and snuck into my neighbor's yard to help her with some brush. She eventually ran me out, but my OCD will not be denied! Her yard problems are easy and all in the shade. I've got a clipper on a long pole and she might see that thing leaning over the fence this evening. I hate yard work, but hate not finishing projects more. Thank you for the offer @kskboys. It's a shame I don't live closer, but the neighbor behind me takes the fence down and mows my yard for me. She's getting ready to buy a new zero turn mower and loves mowing more than just about anything. Clearing her brush seems like the decent thing to do.

    Good luck with the glasses, @LeonDixson.

    Ok @CouchCoach, what fancy name have you given your ankle/foot thing? Don't give it a female name or Hector will try to break a hip to meet her.

    Enjoy that young'un, @ABQCOWBOY and have some Chicken Salad for all of us.

    Have a good Thursday everyone!

    Gramma, as my weatherman keeps telling me "Turn around, don't drown". Find a fashionable life jacket for work and stay safe. o_O

    We're all good here. Waters have receded significantly and businesses are finally able to start assessing damage. I know though no matter how bad we get flooded at any given time, the further down that Mississippi River you go the worse it gets.

    Well, I have a big old oak that's coming down as soon I find someone who doesn't charge an arm and a leg for a limb and a trunk.

    Morning Pops and TGIF to everyone, regardless of whether you're working or not! I've been remiss in my duties here in this thread lately. I don't know why, but I just keep forgetting to come here.

    CC, is today your anniversary? If so, I hope you'll be smiling today, thinking about all the good times you had with her. You know we're here for you, if you need to talk....or if you just want to share some memories.
