Post by: lovebigbluegills on May 03, 2016, 12:29:06 AM
Its about 12:15, so its morning. Sorry I didn't post much on hso since Friday, but I've been pulling a cultivator around for 16-17 hours a day since.

I'm awful proud of you guys for the way you expressed the camaraderie of the cooking forum guys and the bond we share. I look forward to drooling over the pictures of your meals, and sharing and learning with everybody here.

Where to start?  Since I'm new I should say hi and tell you a few things about me.  I'm very shy so sites like this appeal to me, I'm younger than most everyone else on here by a long way, I know both versions of Boaranese the normal one and the brandy induced one, and I'm super focused. 

Good morning!

MLR and coffee: Welcome! Happy to see you both. Stroll around the grounds until you feel at home.  :happy1:

Whew! Chores done, cutworm moths counted (3), rain gauges checked (nada) temp 39 at chore time. Got my column finished in between weed control conversations so now I can go look at some corn fields this afternoon. Think I'll head home and grab a 4 wheeler or the Gator at lunch time and peruse some of the earliest planted fields. So far things look good. My main reason for heading home though is to spy on any orioles that may have arrived.

Still wet in the fields so have been pinned down in my office this a.m. by farmers asking questions. That's what I get paid the big bucks for. Luckily no whining, yet. Also had the office pest to deal with as well as Vista's noted Swedish astronomer. I enjoy the latter because we talk old cars and new places we can drive our old cars to eat. However, after about so much of that, I need to pee! My eye teeth were floating! Again, good to see all the recent arrivals! The more the merrier!  :cheerleader:

Hey boys I am here.  So this is the new site huh?  Very nice.  I like it.  Been reading the posts but just got OK'd to join in.  Hi to the members who have been here all along too.  We think we are a pretty fun group of guys.  This Good Morning thread started on another site and was so much fun to check in during morning coffee and see what everyone was up to that day and what was to be smoked, bbq'd, cooked etc.  We also just talked about life in general so hope that is ok here.  We became a good group of friends.

Post by: leechlake on May 03, 2016, 03:14:18 PM
Hey Dotch- why you gots my gal as your avatar?  Hmmm....

My oats have taken a turn and they seem to have reverted a bit.  I think they need some water and I've got a 17 year old that's been bored lately, perfect combo.  Last weekend Belle seemed to meet her match retrieving wise from a Chessy.  He's a bit older and he seemed to know the game better but she had speed in her favor.  Hours and hours of retrieving games since we had 6 guys around and Lord knows they wouldn't quit pestering us.  It's fun standing on a chair painting and having a lab set a tennis ball near your feet when you don't notice it.  Being an athlete I never went down!

I just noticed I can type site and when I'm typing a post I can see the subject which may help me, slightly, stay on task.  We will see.

Ya I get tired of sandwichs too Boar.  This morning I just had to have a change from them.  Although I did have my salami for a few days which was sure good.  Today I am having Cloverdale cheese brats.  I just throw a package and some buns in my lunchbox.  Need to make my own.  I also started putting carrotts and celery chunks in the frig in cold water.  Rinsed a few times of course.  Then I put some in a zip loc for snacks.  I used to do that and worked out great.  I feel healthy..... :bow:  lol 

Need to mow the lawn for the first time yet.  Sort of putting it off since I am busy doing nothing after work and I don't want to get in the way of nothing of course......    Well a boat ride isn't exactly nothing but......   You know.  Maybe tonight.   Later all.

Good Morning.  Heading to the office to grab some stuff.  Then heading up towards St. Cloud to knock a shovel out from under Glenn.  Then off to a few meetings.  I have been teaching the boy to run the tractor this spring so I'm going to hook up the thatcher behind it and let him run around the yard with it this evening.  Then off to check the gopher traps.  I hope to get a chance to fire up Nagatha 2 this evening and make something.  Have a great day.  Secretly though I wish I was in the same place HD is at. :happy1:

Days like today lure me into thinking it's Summer already.  Next thing you know I forget I will have wet and frozen fingers two Saturday's from now but stubbornly holding my line with those fingers feeling for a walleye tap.  I've got some moderately major work things the next few days and I'm trying to bring my A game in handling them.  Rarely do I not start those days with some prayers that do me good in some capacity.

It seems one of the three hounds has escaped.  He's six and a wiley veteran that always comes back unless he gets captured by a well meaning individual.  Since he's a golden retriever he is very simple to catch.  Usually he heads to the golf course and the guys call me and sometimes they even bring him home in a golf cart which I think just celebrates his escape to him.  When he starts driving the cart then we'll know it's gone too far.  Go get 'em today fellas, be good to yourself.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! Lovely, sunny, day here. 49* Week of sun ahead, say the wedder morjits.  I see the Smurfs are up already, doing something over at Papa Smurf's. They sure grow some strange looking polka-dotted mushrooms. I was perusing, if the moon and planets have no atmosphere, smoming things should work really great. The smoke will just hang right there, and not drift out and away. I'm excited. I'm gonna start building a launch pad on my deck, after I finish staining it today. I've got some left over rocket parts somewhere, might be my summer project. Have a good day, guys.

Good morning all!!! Another late night in the tractor again last night, and back to work this morning. Doesn't sound like there will be any field work tonight, so I think I'll go find some morels after work.

Its only the 4th today Reb, so May the fourth be with you all!!!!!
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Dotch on May 04, 2016, 11:34:05 AM
Hey! Not sure what side of the timeline Reb might be on but celebrating any day is always in order.  :drinking:

Good morning valued customers! Always liked that line. We have so many new or not so new faces it's tough to keep track of everyone. Suffice to say, welcome one and all! Still licking my wounds from yesterday's field scouting. With some down time due to the wet weekend, farmers have been thinking up things to worry about. An old fart like me was not designed to ride 4 wheeler all afternoon. To make matters worse, I burned the top of my melon.  :scratch: Took several Gt's last night to settle me down and dull the pain.

Got chores done, checked the cutworm trap (2 moths), a trace of rain from some light sprinkles last night temp was 41. Neighbor came up with another round bale so had the ring ready so he could just plop it in the lot. Even paid him so we're square again. Had to hash over some farming issues and wifely issues too of course. Our conclusions: Our wives should be darn glad to have us!  :bow:

More of the same in the office sans the office pest. Vista's noted Swedish astronomer stopped by again today which is unusual. Talked old cars and astronomy stuff. That's usual. Should go out and see what kind of trouble I can get into today out in the fields again after lunch. Will need to put the feed bag on soon and a 10 minute after lunch snooze would be just special.

Post by: LPS on May 04, 2016, 02:57:57 PM
Thinking of you coffee and your eating issue with the new teeth.  Years ago i use to live for Jeeping.  Hills mud you name it.  Long before it became popular.  Well we were out in about a foot of snow and a log flipped up from my back tire and hit me in the jaw.  I didn't see it or feel it.  Knocked me out cold.  Well my driving got erratic more that usual and my buddy in the passenger seat saw my eyes were closed and turned the Jeep off.  When I came to it didn't hurt a bit.  I took a swig of schnapps and it drooled down my coat and realized something was wrong.  This was on a Saturday.  My family Dentist was still open so they brought me there.  My Dentist was a great guy but didn't drink or party at all.  Here I am smelling like a peppermint schnapps factory.   He took one look and said you need to go to the hospital your jaws broken.   lol   Well of course I had to have my jaw wired for more than a month.  Broken on one side dislocated on the other.  We lived in Luverne Mn at the time.  Had to go to Sioux Falls to have it set and was in the hospital for a couple of days.  I had malts every day with lots of eggs in them, chocolate, peanut butter you name it.   I love ice cream but it was getting pretty boring not having meat.  Well I had the great idea to put some canned Beefy Mac in the blender.    :happy1::happy1:  I had a wire cutter in case I had to vomit then I was to cut wires so I didn't drown in my own vomit.  lol    Well I did the blender thing and got out a straw and tired like hell to eat the stuff.  Tasted great for a few seconds and then my teeth got filled up like a filter and I couldn't make it work.  SAD deal.   Back to the malts.  I would have a buddy or two ride with me to my checkups and they would always stop at McDonalds for burgers.  Drove me nuts.  Finally I got my wires out and was going to hit McD's with the guys.  Guess what my jaw was still so stiff I still couldn't eat.  Had to have another malt.  I feel for you Coffee.  lol  This got a little long but just had to tell you that I feel for you and know how it sucks to not be able to eat good stuff.   I sure hope the real tender ribs work for you. 
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Reinhard on May 04, 2016, 03:05:42 PM
That had to hurt LPS!!! That had to be very tough, I know it would have been for me.  Hope Coffee get's better soon.  good luck.

LPS-
nice vomit beefaroni post buddy! I never pondered in life carrying wire cutters around so I didn't choke on puke and I'm sure you didn't either.   I'm working on my new eating plan and was getting a bit hungry but reading that solved any hunger pains, effective tool I will use in the future.  If I get to 170 I will owe you for sure.

Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Coffee118 on May 04, 2016, 03:16:45 PM
Thanks LPS and Reinhard, yes that had to hurt, atleast I was put to sleep before they took out 28 teeth. The only good thing I can say for now is in the month I've lost 18 pounds already. Now if I can loose 7 more and keep it off when I can eat I'll be even happier. Speaking of McDonalds of all the things I'm craving is a quarter pounder w/cheese or two or three.

Ya I had this buddy in high school and for some reason he just did not like this girl his age.  I mean he would even talk about how he just didn't like her.  Kind of like Rebs.   AND yup they ended up married.   :rotflmao: :rocker; AND played beautiful music together. 

I am a little queezy today.  I am thinking it may be due to eating lots of sauerkraut with homemade ring bologna and onions, along with Bush's beans.  Of course I had to eat it all.  Then to top it off I was unsupervised by the wife the other day in the grocery store so I bought some coffee flavored ice cream.  Never had it before.  Pretty darn good.  She laughed when she saw it too.  And yes she liked it too.

Well there is just starting to be a little haze in the sky from the fires in Canada.  It is supposed to be in the 80's here today.  That is going to be brutal.  The haze may make it a little cooler.  The "haze".  That used to be much more common in my younger days, and I mean long long ago.  Thankfully.....   :happy1:

See ya later guys, gotta go and make the world a better place.  Well maybe just the county.

Morning.  Dream last night again.  It's this one I've had numerous times about fishing on Leech Lake and it involved a secret spot I fish that in real life doesn't even exist on Leech.  I think I've "melded" a part of LOTW in Canada into Leech for my dream.  Kind of a dream about if two lakes could mate what their offspring lake would be like. 

Epic cell phone controversy around here.  My sons phone acted up two nights ago and you'd think the world was coming to an end.  Frankly I didn't think he was that dependent on it.  We have two upgrades available on our plan so we're good though.  Funny thing is I dropped my phone two months ago and have been using it with a cracked screen and with pride.  It's like looking down at some of the dings on a duck hunting gun and remembering all the good times you've had with it.  My wife said since we had two upgrades maybe she'd get a new phone?  While I have fun with my cracked screen it's also literally missing pieces of glass and the camera looks like it's ready to fall out.  Hopefully the wife likes her new phone!

I also had a dream I was in the military charging a mountain and I looked around and the ten guys with me had bailed out...well all but one.  One dream story a day though.  Help an old person out today.

Good morning everyone!  I didn't get to thatching the yard yesterday so that will have to be on the agenda.  Last night when the boy and I went to check the gopher traps we forgot where 2 of them were at so that needs to be taken care of tonight.  However with the temps how they are I might skip all that and hit the golf course. ;). Work is over rated.

Bobber unsupervised? Now there's a scary thought!  :tequila;

Bom dia! Good morning in Brazilian Portuguese. Am practicing for future reference. Morning chores done, cutworm trap checked (1 moth) and no precip, temp 41. Off to Mankato area again today to check on crusting (soil) to see if rotary hoeing is required. Hasn't been an issue so far but worrying gives farmers something to do in their spare time. Anyway, makes for a road trip and lots of loading and unloading. By the end of the work day, I'm shot. Then I come home and do chores for an hour and and mow lawn until after dark. That way I have all kinds of excuses when Mrs. Cheviot gives me that "come hither" look. I'm usually asleep behind the newspaper by then anyway.

today would be a great day to uninvent the cell phone and take a real/old school vacation day with zero bothers.  Frankly, I've thought Friday's should be a non work day and added as a weekend for years.  In 4 days of work you should be able to get everything accomplished including all the things most people already don't accomplish in 5 days!  Maybe M-F until you turn 40 would be a good plan. 

I was making a move on the wife early this morning and suddenly these small head of a tiny black lab was right there in the mix.  Ruined the whole thing and I'm pretty sure the wife's disappointment level was below zero.  Those small black labs are sneaky devils and at one year old seemingly always getting in trouble...that describes me also.

 Asked the wife what she wanted for dinner Sunday night, and she wants steaks.  Have to make a trip to Greg's Meats in Hampton for our quarterly 50 lb ground beef pickup, so I guess I'll have to peruse the steaks, too!  Love the smell walking into a true meat market!

I've led a wonderful last ten years plus.  Done business on the phone while literally setting the hook on walleyes and sitting in a deer stand.  Usually golfing I waited til the turn to be on the phone.  The run might have a little glitch in it so maybe that's why I'm lobbying for the adapted work week!    I was lucky and M-Th was usually like most peoples Fridays and F-Sunday was the weekend ta boot.  I knew it at the time it wouldn't last forever but ten plus years is a nice little run.

Got my tickets in the mail today for this years U.S open, only one more month. Oakmont golf course is only about 10 - 15 minutes from my house so I might walk to avoid traffic.

Man do I wish I was really stupid.  I'm stupid but not really stupid.

I was just down at Lake Minnetonka after meeting someone and I sat and read a book for about an hour sitting in a chair.  Sure it's a perfect day but all it made me think of is being a fishing guide.  If I could just blindly and stupidly up and do it I'd be so happy, and broke, and eventually irritated with people who broke my stuff, and broke, and maybe happy though.  But alas I have a plan.

I can get a government job of some sort, not show up for work and guide while I'm "working" for the government.  Worst thing that could happen is that if by chance they figure out I'm not working I'd get fired.  50/50 chance probably.  If that doesn't pan out I could be a union thug, 90/10 chance I'd get caught on that with the odds in my favor  ;)

Fun when a plan comes together.  Sorry Smurf and all govt fellers I've offended but if you could give me a recommendation I'd appreciate it.

So LL you still don't get it that us Union workers have a lot of pride in our jobs.   I had a big speel but deleted it.  I have worked both Union and non Union.  Pros and Cons to both.  AND don't even bring the auto union into this.  They were way over the top and make us all look bad.  Not the employees fault but the companies that are still raping us on car prices

sorry LPS, I was referring to goofing around with Glenn.  As I've said before I was raised in a union household and my dad was proudly in the bricklayers union for 50 years.  No offense meant and the way I see it it's self deprecating humor to my upbringing more than anything else. 

The above isn't even a Hillary Clinton like bs excuse.  I've got my dad's framed 50 year Bricklayers and Allied Crafts"people" (it doesn't say craftsman anymore) Award hanging in my house.  Heck, I'm a lumber salesman and people can goof around and tease me about it til the cows come home and do all the time.

Don't make fun of my failed farming though, that would hurt  :happy1:

forest fire smoke, although many times tragic, is an amazing thing.  I think I can see a slight haze here in the NW suburbs unless it's some other phenomenon.  What a great day yesterday and what made it greater is that it cooled down right away.  Summer should work that way, two days of hot and two days like this 71 day low humidity stuff.

Planning Mothers Day gets harder as the kids get older.  Wife needs to go see her mom and one kid works til 5pm.  We usually take Deb somewhere on one of those junkets she likes like a road trip to Stillwater or something similar and wander around have a picnic and be in the sun.  Wife loves the sun like it's 1970 and people "sun bathed" and thought it was healthy.  I'm guilty of it myself but she's a sun addict.  Ironically I've had skin cancer and she hasn't.  Clean living on her part.

Have fun today, throw a stick for your dog.

We had the smoke from Canada reaching down here to Andover over the night.  I thought it was fog of some kind at first.  I feel terrible for the folks up in Canada.  It's a huge fire and left a lot of destruction in it's path.  They say it's even getting stronger.  I was up on the Gunflint Trail for week when they had the Ham Lake fire there.  I remember fishing on Hungry Jack Lake in mid day and seen this huge mass of what I though was a line of clouds moving in.  It was a wall of smoke.  It turned day into night, blocking out the sun.  Went back into the cabin and Seen water coming down the windows.  Told my wife how strange it was that it was raining when none was expected.  Turned out to be the sprinkler system on top of each cabin being turned on. 

The next day the smoke went elsewhere with the wind change and I seen other cabin owners on top of their cabins installing these sprinkler systems.  Time to get the boat ready.  Have a great day.  good luck.

Good mornin'! Smoky here too. Thought it was fog at 1st but once I got outside, could tell right away it wasn't. 55 degrees though a big switch form the 87 we saw yesterday. A little precip, .01" but were some pretty good light shows from all the lightning in the cells a distance away. "Heat lightning" is the term Dad used to use. Anyway, chores are done and Mrs. Cheviot skipped out again as she had to go to work early. I have to get bagged feed again and make a trek to FF in the process for supplies. Gotta mow the windbreak for the first time so that will be a treat. Solid dandelions so it'll gum the deck up good on my old mower. Apples and flowering crabs are in full bloom and one of the pear trees had blossoms, the other did not so likely no pears. Rode around last night having a few brews with the guy who farms the land around my place. Saw the wood ducks on the pond and he was telling me there were 3 huge deer holed up in the slough area around it. Keep thinking one of these days the orioles will finally arrive but so far nothing. Should put out the hummingbird feeder too. No big plans for Mother's Day. Wife may be working, not sure and since we have no kids, the dogs may get her something. After all, she's already got me; what more does she really need? :laughroll:

Thanks Dotch for the reminder on the hummingbird feeders.  I will have to do that today also.  Along with mow the lawn for the first time and clean up the maple tree that I cut down last week.  It was making 2 others grow crooked so finally after thinking about it for 10 years decided it was time to make firewood out of it.  I might get out for a couple of hours of Sturgy fishing today before the kentucky Derby.  I would like to see an hour of coverage before the race too.  Have a toddy or two to celebrate with crowd.  lol  I have to boil spuds for my potatoe salad too.  Man I have a lot to do.  First it is time for breadfast with some of my homemade sausage patties.  The wife isn't too big on it so that means more for me.   ;)  I will try to post a pic of Buddy on the dock last night.  It was pretty smoky here.  Clear and sunny now.    lol  That Gillespie guy is on TV right now doing his fishing show.  HEY THERE IS ANOTHER NICE ONE  MAN LETS HAVE SOME JOHNSONVILLE BRATS...  He bugs my wife and I think it is funny as heck.   :bonk:  Well have a good one everyone.

Made it to the cabin around 4 yesterday,  the family had been here most of the day. Spuds were on the grill already and 8 thick pork chops hit the grill. After dinner went out looking for  pan fish,  as soon as 2 lines hit the water they went down, we're thinking cool this will be fun. Well I think we caught the only 9 fish in the bay in less than 2 minutes Cuz after that...nuttin.  The boat lift canopy has only been on for 12 hrs and the swallows are already trying to build a nest. Anybody know of a good solution to keep these guys away? We've put a plastic owl under it, ran a slinky around on the top rail, toothpaste,  even mothballs.  There's no quit in these guys.

Funny how we get attached to things like grill's Del.  I have two that I keep saying I'm going to dump, yet there they sit and never used.  I keep saying I'm going to take the small one camping one day, or on a one day fishing trip and cook on a island.  However it's beyond use so tomorrow one is going, then the other. 

Just not looking forward to going to the casino for the buffet.  Just never into going out to eat, but I swallow my selfishness and pretend that I'm liking it.  I love the old fashion BBQ with smoking ribs, butts, chicken, burgers ect.  That to me is great for any occasion.  When I grew up we never went out to eat.  All the meals were homecooked meals.  Maybe that's what it is.  The good thing is that even my wife doesn't like to go out to eat.  However her parents went out often and seldom cooked so maybe it has a reverse effect.  Have a great Mothers Day everyone.  I told my mom and wife often that every day is Mothers Day for me.  good luck.

Bobber- I think your only salvation from the swallows is moving up there and constantly harassing them that or stringing fishing line all over the place so getting into the boat on the lift is also impossible for a human.

I layed in bed for a bit and was welcomed to the day by the 49 pound black lab.  In the morning she likes to get face to face for a meeting it seems.  After a bit of licking and patting she layed on my neck, sighed, and seemed to fall asleep.  Her comfort level with our relationship is amazing.  It's like your old fishing or hunting buddy who may just grab part of your sandwich out of your hand, take a bite, hand it back to you and you take a bit as though that's normal.  Maybe that should be normal.

My mom isn't with us anymore but I said hi to her already and today have to venture out and visit the MIL and another adopted mom.  Mother's Day is more work now that I don't have one than when I did.  My mom asked for walleye for Mothers Day usually...and a few hand picked dandelions like I did when I was little.  Moms are awesome.

Good morning all.  We are having coffee and then heading up to Sportsmans for their Mothers day brunch.  It is always good.  So much food and I like it all.  It is hard to not overeat.  I try everything they have.  They have roast beef, chicken, walleye,eggs benedict, cheesy potatoes, and more.  Also have a ton of deserts.  I take more of the meat and potatoes and eggs than desserts though.  The wife is the dessert eater more than me.  They also have champagne and bloody marys.  I may have a bloody mary and the wife usually will have a mamosa.  Then we will come home and vegetate..... 

Got the maple tree cut up, straw off the drainfield and lawn mowed yesterday.  Today I am thinking of putting the 5th wheel camper out by the road with a for sale sign on it.  Maybe start the garden since you guys already have.  May go for a boat ride and check out the river.  Looks like it is going to be a nice day.  See ya all later, have a great Mothers Day. 

RH smile the buffet will be fun.....  :happy1:

Boar? Loopy? That I find hard to believe although I can read your posts better when I'm loopy!  ;) Good mornin' all! Fixin' to get ready to commence thinking about what I should do for the rest of the day. Dew's still on in the windbreak so probably should get the tiller out form between the spot where it's wedged between a couple wagons and tear into it. By the time I get that done it should be dried off and time to mow. I have a half chicken that finally thawed out so need to get that on the grill sometime today. Get some apple wood soaking so we can smoke it up good first. Need to get cleaned up a bit too sometime today. Getting past the Don Johnson look and if I ain't careful, pretty quick I'll start to look like Billy Gibbons or Dusty Hill! Maybe a spin in the Stude on tap although I may be flying solo if I do. Have to grab some Poligrip and Depends then go cruise the nursing homes! Works like a charm.  ;D

Back to the old grind....NOT! I'm still turkey hunting. ....
We've been having problems with fox. So I have put out a few live traps....I'll check them later this morning. I drew up some plans for a raised garden, and picked up the lumber yestetday. Drinking my coffee, I noticed we still have a haze from the Northern fires. Suppose to rain later...

Hope you all are doing well!

Morning.  Had a pretty good brunch yesterday, then smomed the ribs and had the potato salad yesterday evening.  The ribs turned out great.  I rubbed them a day ahead and did the Fast Eddy method.  275 for about 3 - 3 1/2 hours.  No foil.  I did swab on some orange juice with a little apple cider vinegar a few times.  Then they were looking a little dry so I did a little drizzle of olive oil.  Turned out nice and juicy and were not at all mushy.  The potato salad turned out great too.  I don't make it often so always wonder about it.  The wife loved it so that is a good test.. 

Well have a good one today, I have to get going.

Easy-  I hadn't even seen your post and I was going to title it "Three People Who Could Kick My Ass".  It's a great photo Boar.

Wife was in a "mood" this morning.  I could sense it when I seen her  ;) in the bathroom getting ready.  I went and layed in bed and googled "what to do when wife is upset" since I never seem to handle it right.  I gave the three tips a whirl and now the author of the tips is in the camp of not doing the right thing too, it's nice to have company.  I got a whirl wind of tasks to do thrown at me and then a solution to a "what if" issue that got so far down the road I had to put the stop sign up telling her to hold her powder until the "what if" actually comes true.  That did it...I was officially in trouble with her but she was just looking for something so whatever...  She then tried to buzz kill my upcoming fishing weekend as she walked out the door.  She looked pretty good when she left but I didn't give in to telling her, what a gal!!!

Made the wife her favorite dessert, key lime pie yesterday.   It's a complete layup recipe you pour in Graham Cracker crust:

2 egg yolks, add one can 14oz of Sweetened Condensed milk, 1/2 cup lime juice and some grated rind if you want.  Beat it for about 90 seconds.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes and then put in fridge for two hours.  Put whipping cream on top when you serve it.

Mr. Reb is never absent.  As far as  yer "neighbor lady" fantasy goes, she walked by while I was running the boat yday, dressed in a lime green shirt and white stretch pants. (they'd haveta be) Looked like a bloated key-lime popsicle. I mentioned I have an acquaintance she might like to meet...he likes traveling, eating in scenic restaurants, and as I under stand it, laying pipe for some secret union. Gave her yer address. She headed for home so fast she'll have to jake brake a block away to get down into slow mode.
As far as yer reference to "muscles and body parts that haven't been used", there's only one part I can figger you are talking about...yer head. One and the same. I wouldn't worry though, I'm sure you don't need to utilize it that much.  :rotflmao:
OH, good morning guys, and Smurfy! Busy weekend. Did a boat and trailer front to back final check and fired up...cranked over about four times and *VROOOOM*. Ready to hit the water. I mixed some of Del's "saucy racha"  (Sriracha sauce) with some hickory BBQ sauce and a bit of teriyaki glaze. Don't know what ya'd call it, but I think I've got a hit.  Had that on some apple wood smoked chicken on the grill, with some maple beans and bacon cheddar pasta, with the ever present green tops and fresh big radishes. Finished off with with a big bowl of maple nut ice cream. So, I guess it was a good weekend over all, and the weather was perfect. Have a good day, guy......

Good morning! Rain falling after a weekend where most guys should've finished up their soybean planting. Some were worrying that their corn was crusted over so this should help alleviate that. I like rain if it comes nice and easy like today especially when it's timely. Was a good weekend of grilling and getting garden ready for action. The rain should help soften it up for when it's fit again. I am stiff after running the tiller for about 6 hours yesterday. Was glad the wife decided to just stay home last night so I could play on the grill. House still smelled like a BBQ inside this a.m. so that'll be nice to come home to. I gave her a rain check on taking advantage of me in the Stude so I'll have to be on guard for that. Be sleeping with one eye open just in case...  ;)

Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!

HD hope the bug is short one.

Alas!  I had a dream last night that involved the outdoors.  I won't boar you with this one but my son and I were at an archery shop and a guy tried to sell me a bow that looked like a big wake board ski that was almost taller than me.  When you bent at the hips to shoot it like you would in a tree stand the bottom end hit the floor.  That's dreams for ya.

Seems this year for opener I've lost control of the troops a bit.  Ya know that rule you learned years ago where you don't invite others on a trip you were invited too?  It's taught in the 101 class I always thought but some missed that class.  Yesterday I had to check with an invitee on how many guys we were going to have, maybe a thing I myself would know since it's my place.  This morning I see another was invited and I was asked to delay my departure time to accommodate this person???  I have my limits. 

Pat your wife's butt today if you normally don't.  They always love that!

Morning gone and about time for afternoon caffeine already. Rainfall was over for the time being too with .92" in the gauge at home and .81" in Bugtussle and environs. Had to go out on a crop tour since after all, gas is free. Stuff looks pretty good all things considered. Corn emergence is a little spotty in some fields but they should fill in the gaps in most places except in high traffic areas. Looks like another ugly headland year. Early planted soybeans are just emerging and if you go slow and squint hard enough you can almost row them. Just not warm enough to make them pop yet. Gray weather makes me nappy so better find that caffeine and quick!

Hold on Dotch...what does "it looks like another ugly headland year" mean?  Beginner farmer here.

It's the ends of the fields where the equipment turns along with vehicles and implements going in and out of field driveways, frequently packing the living snot out of the ground. Ground here gets very hard as a result. Tough to break up and change it with tillage.

starting the morning with my dock guy saying dock is in but boat not til next week.  Great...luckily I have another boat I can lug over there but that will create other problems because I keep it on a different lake we like to fish also and I don't have my own trailer for it.  Making memories we call it, we will figure something out I'm sure.

Yesterday was day 180 on the sober train.  Pretty proud and happy about that decision for me.  Wife said nothing, disappointing to say the least.  The word spread fast with my buddies and I got more texts and phone calls and lunch invites than I do on my birthday.

Noticed yesterday that somewhere in the wood around our mailbox baby birds have been born.  Can't see the nest but it's kind of nice going to get junkmail and bills and hear the babies chirping.

For sure LL. It's not easy to do. Not that I've tried but so I've been told! I did quit the heaters once upon a time and after seeing some of the carnage resulting from those things, not sorry I did. Wasn't easy. One vice at a time though. I cut the wife off and that's been surprisingly easy. You'll do fine boar. If you could handle the fertilizer spreading operation, the spraying should come easy for you. All goes back to the basics:  tip, speed and pressure. The electronic gadgetry should make your life easier. Luckily most of the stuff going on these fields nowadays is a lot safer than some of the stuff we used to mess around with.

Another cloudy day with another system heading our way. Oops! Too late. Already drizzling. At least I got the windbreak mowed after chores last night. Hadn't been touched yet this spring so about a foot tall. A lot was solid dandelions. Finished about 10 p.m. Couldn't see what I was doing real well and killed the mower a couple times. Went out to see the aftermath this a.m. and looked like the stuff coming out from under the deck had been through a cow. Time to get my hands on some generic Stinger and spray the area then repeat it again in the fall. Shouldn't take long with the 4 wheeler. Would make life simpler.

Counting the hours at work today. Once I'm done, I'm hitting the door running, picking up my buddy and heading north.  Although I wish I could say I was more excited about the weather.  We'll be at my family's cabin on Fish Trap Lake about an hour north of St. Cloud. We usually fish Crappies and Sunnies on Friday and hit up the Walleye and Pike on Saturday.  Both days won't get outta the 40s, according to my phone.  In fact tomorrow will have 10-20MPH sustained winds with gusts up to 30MPH.  If that's the case, my 14 ft Lund wont see the water on Friday. I can take 20 deg and wind in a deer stand, but dressing in layers and getting tossed around and sprayed by the swell in a small boat does not sound appealing. Saturday's supposed to be a little calmer. Post-cold front fishing at its finest, fish will be tight-lipped  Might have to continue the un-ending quest for the best Bloody Mary in Morrison Co. So far, "The Landing" on Lake Alexander is the best we've found.  But there are many more places to try.

Good luck to all those going out and stay safe (and warm)!

Morning boys.  And when I says boys that means all men and women.  An enduring term for all.  Late getting to you today since as a hard working union employee I had to wait for my morning break of course.  You know what I mean Glen..  You are also a hard worker.   :happy1:  Yup colder every day right through the weekend.  Windier too.  Supposed to be about 20 mph from the NW and mid 40's as the high.  20's for the lows.  They are even talking snow or sleet in the morning...   PERFECT!!!  Shouldn't be too crowded on the river.    :rotflmao:  As a matter of fact I may not be adding to the crowd for long.  I know my best friend and wife who has fished the opener with me for about 10 years said she won't be participating.  Maybe I mentioned it here before but I am going to mention it again.  One year with real strong current we had to fish right next to shore with 1 oz jigs and caught a limit of 18" eyes and the wife got a 27".  Picture perfect trip.  I think we were done in 2 hours.  I will remind her of that and see if it motivates her to go out for awhile.  Ok break is over so back to work for me.  Always a pleasure.  Talk to ya all later.

about ten years ago I fell off of the dock on opener.  It was windy and 49 degrees and the water was 49 degrees.  Totally sober and I was dressed like a snowman.  The water felt warm when I fell in since I was coming in from fishing and freezing.  Awesome memory.  My son brought me a bath towel as I crawled out of the lake.  Yes...there was significant shrinkage when I peeled the ten layers off.

Cool in the overnight. Had 43 for an overnight low and actually saw the sun for a few hours this a.m. Not sure what we did to deserve that but won't argue. .2" of rain in the past 24 hrs. Did have a little excitement this morning if you can call it that. Winding down on the cutworm moth trap monitoring project so went out to check it this morning after chores. It's a sticky bottom trap pictured below and found a house wren entrapped in it. In all the years of monitoring these traps had never caught anything warm blooded. The poor little thing must've seen some small insects in the trap bottom and decided to check them out. It became mired in the goo so carefully removed the wren and took it inside. Cleaned it up with some Dawn and warm water then released it. Couldn't fly real well but hopefully it will evade any cats or other predators until it can.

Good to see you here jb! Welcome! I agree on the rainfall glenn. Given some of the loner range forecasts for the summer, we might be looking for some come July and August. Rain is edging closer here. Was a cool start to the day again, low was in the upper 30's someplace with a 36 being reported at the airport in Waseca. No rain yesterday but as cloudy and cold as it was it didn't dry much either so tough to see where it's wet and where it isn't. Supposed to be some some frost the next two nights in a row here so that ought to get people's dander up. Cover yer 'maters! No birds in the cutworm moth trap this a.m. No moths either. The larvae don't like eating frozen plant tissue anyway. Did spot my first hummingbird of the season from my seat in the oval office. The nectar level in the feeder appeared to be dropping some so figured they must've been tapping it when I wasn't looking.  ;D

Good morning all, it's the same here for our opener 48 and rain so I'll give it a go early tomorrow morning before going to the course,  if we don't get a light coating of snow tonight, it'll make putting a little tough. Congrats boar on ur new toy, I'll be doing some ribs tomorrow with my masterbuilt before my sister goes back home to Washington D.C.  All have a good day and hope the weather breaks soon

Snow? Utter that 4-letter word no more coffee!  ;) 31 for a low. Doesn't look like it hurt things much other than the dandelions and plantain on a north facing slope in the yard. We had .55" of rain yesterday just ahead of the cool down so that may have softened the blow. Still, it was cold enough after chores last night so I needed a little tincture! Couldn't do that this a.m. as I have feed to get and hay to haul. Not that I wouldn't like to... :rotflmao:

More birds rolling in. Finally saw some white-crowned sparrows and the catbird was just at the jelly feeder. Oops! Add a rose-breasted grosbeak to the list.

 Sour mash gin an scotch were my downfall years back!! Heres a poem

  The horse and cow live thirty years,
And nothing know of wines and beers,
The goat and sheep at twenty die,
And never taste of Scotch or Rye,
The sow drinks water by the ton,
And at eighteen is nearly done,
The dog at fifteen cashes in,
Without the aid of rum or gin,
The cat in milk and water soaks,
And then at twelve short years it croaks,
The modest, sober bone dry hen,
Lays eggs for years then dies at ten.
All animals are strictly dry;
They sinless live and quickly die.
But sinful, ginful, rum-soaked men
Survive for three score years and ten;
And some of us, the mighty few,
Stay pickled till we're ninety-two!

30 for a low here. Was freezing for a longer duration and no breeze. Not much evidence that it injured anything as it's warming up. Need to get to the off site pasture today to get the fence up and running also check the bluebird houses to see if they're occupied. Lots of orioles yesterday with some females of both the Baltimore and orchard type. Put out some cotton string for them. They generally haven't nested here but usually at the neighbors. Wonder how he feels about that stuff wrapped up in his mower?  ;) Hopefully finish mowing lawn and wean some of the ewes. Fresh brats tonite!

38 here, feels a lot better than yesterday.  The lawn looks like it grew 6" so that is what I need to take care of today.  The wife likes to mow too so that helps.  Then I can work on other stuff too.  Like weed whipping.  I think I need to do a little more spraying to eliminate the whipping.   ;)  Had a ribeye on the grill last night that might have been the best one I ever had.  Everything came together great.  Also had a great salad that the wife made.  Cooked up a corned beef so may cook up some cabbage and onions and carrotts tomorrow night after work.  Then ruebens the next day.   :happy1:  I also have to get the oriole feeder uptoday.  I have to find a good spot for it.  Have a good one....

Nice toy there General. Dew yes that is the Redhead that we have at our place. We have had a pair the last 3 years and they usually have 2-3 babies. I think last year they had 4. We have only seen the one so far this year, guessing it is the male. We have only seen the one oriole Friday morning and nothing since. just a matter of time I guess. All this talk about smokers, I think I will need to smoke something this weekend. Well another day in the big yellow building. Have a good day all!!

Best opener in years for us.  Water was 46 degrees and we kept 20 walleyes and caught another 10 or so that didn't qualify, biggest was 27 incher.  I was Top Rod...again.

I'm pondering moving up north for the Summer...seriously.  Things aren't too hot on homefront and the kids can spend a lot of time up there once schools out.  That stars would have to align a bit but having it as an outside option keeps me sane and hopeful.   :happy1:

Nice rig General.   You will have fun with that.  I didn't even wet a line this weekend.  Windy and cold.  I mowed yesterday and it sprinkled on me most of the time.  I got er done though.  Did some other projects too so it ended up a good weekend.

Good morning.  Man it is white on the ground here.  Didn't cover anything like we did a few days ago.  I didn't know it was going to freeze.  I went fishing for awhile last night finally.  Kept on walleye about 14".  Will try to add to it to make a meal.  Good excuse to get out there again.  The beaver kept swimming by us and that got Buddy all interersted in him.  He likes this river life.  Glad he didn't jump in.  Later.

Sunny, clear, and 44* here. No loons, but Smurfy isn't here yet. Deck is wet; looks like we received some rain late overnite. Entire week looks like we'll be warming up and getting back to normal, finally. Chicken drumsticks on the grill later, with some Italian pasta and tomato salad I made.

The lake our place is on is all about loons.  Its a loon staging lake in the late Summer/Fall and there will be 2-300 in a group for a few weeks.  The allure of the loon noises becomes an irritant when that many are together constantly cooing and calling all night long, still cool to see.

I've got fishing on my mind and it's funny how when you aren't fishing you feel like you'd be hammering them.  I did good this past weekend but fished 9 hours or so and caught 11 walleyes but that means I spent about 8-1/2 hours doing nothing but bobbing around waiting.  Then again bobbing around waiting sounds pretty good too!

I have an amateur theory on the loons when we are fishing.  The loons dive and chase minnows and the minnows get agitated and then the agitated minnows trigger the walleyes and next thing you know the fish that really aren't actively biting bite your leech or minnow.

I've seen it way too many times for it not to be true.  If the loon is just loafing around the fish don't bite as well.  If the loons are fishing I'm catching fish more often than not.

Ya I have a little bit of a sore back too.  My air ride seat doesn't hold air anymore and I am a little scrunched when fishing.  I set the hook on a few last night and on my way back up to the house I had one heck of a back ache.  Need to buy a new air ride thing.  Nice fish though.

I read about those jar salads awhile back.  They don't look too bad.  I will have to find them again and check it out.  I have been having carrotts and celery in a bowl of water in the frig and throwing a few in a bag to have with my lunch sandwich which is salami I made.  Pretty darn good too.  I've been having PB&J for my morning coffee break sandwich. 

Beautiful looking day today.  Enjoy it all...

Weekly car show kicks off tonite at the Eagles.  That'll be a blast, first one is always crazy. Was taking the '40 Dodge sedan with a buddy...until the brake pedal went to the floor yday...no brakes now.  :banghead: Looks like the '79 Cutlass is going to be the car of choice for tonite. Ribs waiting in the 'fridge to be smoked for today, I'll be at the show eating their grilled brats and burgers. Looks like ribs on the menu tomorrow....have a good day, guys.

We had a hummer at feeder Monday and last night one was perched on the tippy top of a branch on a tree.  He thought he was an eagle but he looked like a leaf.  That's how I am.

Hopped on the scale this morning and I've lost 12-13 pounds approximately on the drinking water and eating right program.   I bet my kids I could lose 8 pounds by June 1 so I've overachieved.  I wasn't crazily overweight but my torso was starting to look like Sponge Bob...actually starting is inaccurate, it looked like Sponge Bob.

I'm in minute man mode right now.  My bag is packed in the back of my closet and when the wife lets me leave for cabin I'm outta here tomorrow hopefully.  Kennels are already in back of truck and I'd need to grab one cooler and hit the road.  South wind for 4-5 days straight by this weekend should have our north shore fishing pretty good.

Surfacing for air. Been through several days of crisis management. The frost still has everybody in a tizzy and as happens too frequently, people start doing things they shouldn't before it's abundantly clear what should be done. The mentality becomes "I gotta do something". Unfortunately this doesn't work well with biological systems, especially when the weather stays cool and crops don't change very fast. Frequently knee jerk reactions result in costly wrong decisions. In the immortal words of Page and Plant, sometimes l I grow so tired...

Had a few beers and pulls off the Crown bottle last night with my sheep shearer/farmer friend after looking at my last disaster of the day. There were a couple other sheep shearers there getting their blades sharpened. Met a female sheep shearer I'd heard of but had never met. At 60, she was still in pretty good rig. All of us had some good laughs, something I sorely needed after another pain in the ass day.

Dotch, The corn does look tough to say the least. Are there some beans up in your area? I would be concerned about them.
One of my neighbors (about 4 miles to the east) says his grapes got hit real hard.
I was glad I hadn't planted any tomatoes or peppers yet, I probably would have done like glenn and put five gallon pails over them. My garden peas don't look phased.

The sun is rising over the water. So far the weekend forecast is looking decent, maybe I will get to wet a line. A guy can dream can't he.

Man Boar is already in hot water here this morning.  Oh well I think he likes it.

 A buddy of mine just showed me a pic he took up at one of the resorts of a appx. 30" walleye filleted out.  Are you up there Boar?  lol  Just kidding.  In defense of the guy who filleted it maybe it was badly gut hooked and was going to die anyways.  Better cut it up into little chunks and deep fry it. Actually sounds good.

Another beautiful day here.  Looks like the rest of the week is going to be nice too.  My Sat. to work too.  Darn.  Oh well.  Just have to get more done on Sunday.

Ok, I'll try to post this for the third time.  Seems to happen to me only on this thread.  I post and then it doesn't come up.  Well I went to Duluth yesterday to jump in my brothers boat.  Great day.  the water was dead calm.  Not a breeze in sight until later in the day.  Fished from 9 am to 6 pm.  Only 2 walleyes , no perch, but plenty of pike which were on the small side.  Lot of bite offs and lost jigs from the many snags there and the pike.  Two days earlier my brother and his friend caught there limits and more but only kept two a piece.  They hardly ever keep limits.  It's only a short drive for them.  Me,  I'm keeping my limit for that one day trip but if I lived there I would go with the two a day or catch and release.  Didn't have to worry about the limit thing yesterday LOL.  My brother gave me his 17 incher to take home along with mine.

We did everything.  Trolling crawlers and minnows, minows under a bobber, jigging, and casting stickbaits and plastics.  fishing did pick up when the wind kicked up some later in the day but it was geeting late and I had that drive back home.  Had a great day!!!!  The pics shows the islands on the lake and my brother with his eye.  Seen many deer as well which is good for that area.  good luck.

Morning all,
Been up to the cabin a few times now this summer myself and with my oldest(two years).  We usually pack light and make good time.  First trip with the whole crew, the Mrs. and my 2 month old.  Should get home about 4-4:30... I'm ballparking the time we actually get on the road at 8 this weekend...  Things definitely move slower with the whole crew.  However I also don't end up remembering what I forgot to pack mid day saturday with the wife comes up as she's a tad more organized. :bonk: :doah:

Dont know what you use for cooking on the ice but I am going to plum a line from out tank with a jack on the side of the frame so that I can just take a 4 foot hose and run straight to our main tanks for grilling.  Makes it easier to not have to remember the mini tanks for grilling.

Great pics RH.  That is great that you go fish with your brother.  My brother and i are great friends but he uses his time off to hunt so doesn't leave much time for fishing anymore.  I am the other way around.  I don't hunt quite as much as I used to but I fish more.  Both are just fine, personal preference. 

Hockey!!!   It is baseball season even though here in MN we don't want to talk about that much neither.  And football is right around the corner and I am really looking forward to the season.  Gonna be great!!!

General, those Lindell Rod Holders work pretty good as paper towel holders too.  But they are great Rod Holders. 

LL we love that Bemidji Classic Rock station.  BUT it usually fades away about 10 miles south of Baudette.  Never could figure that out.  What great advertising the are missing out on here..

I guess I deserved those bringing up the 1991 pens and stars but atleast I didn't bring up the 1975 steelers and vikes. Who knows if the twins weren't in the basement this year maybe the Pirates would beat them too and make it a clean sweep of Minnesota teams for another championship.  :happy1:

Good Morning.  Oh how I miss being up north.  I'll see if I can go again this week.  Grandkids this weekend so that will keep me hopping.  Grass needs to be cut and my boat needs to get ready to rumble [maybe squeeze those in].  Having breakfast with some home smoked Canadian bacon and eggs.  Have a great day.  good luck.

Yup here I am working again today and it is beautiful out.  Just go go go for us union guys.  lol   On my coffee break now.  RH that looks great.  I love weekend mornings when I don't have to work and can make a nice breakfast.  I love anything with eggs.  Lately I have been having the homemade bulk sausage that I made.  I want to try the canadian bacon like you have there.   Looks like it would make great sandwichs too. 

Went fishing last night.  After a limit the other night I have been smited in the fish count ever since.  Lots of little bites from the tiny saugers but nothing that will even steal my minnow off the hook.  Maybe it is the full moon phase affecting the fishing.  Might be better right after dark. 

Have a great day to all of you.  Ribeyes tonight on the grill.   I can't wait.  Maybe a cocktail or two also.

I'll be close to you LPS on the last week of June.  We will be staying at our friends resort Ash Riviera Resort and RV Park for a week.  Last time we went we had great fishing every day.  It was hard to get a keeper eye in the slot.  Most were over 17 inches but we did get a lot of very nice perch that fried up well along with some monster smallmouth.  From there we can go up  to Rainy or the other way to Kabtogoma and more.  I fished Sullivan Bay there almost the whole time in 8 feet of water with bobber and leeches.  I rent their Pontoon boat there because my boat doesn't hold the people that are going to be there with us.  Can't wait to get there.  good luck.

That sounds like a perfect vacation.  We are going to be at Bearhead State Park for a few days that week.  That is from hearing you talk about it.  Really looking forward to it.  I am going to get a trout stamp and maybe catch a few for the wife and I to have for a meal or two.  Any tips would be appreciated.  Can you sit in a lawn chair and throw a bobber out for them or is it a casting small cranks type of thing?  You know sitting in a pontoon boat with slip bobbers sounds like a perfect way to spend a day.  I like perch too.  They are as good as a walleye to me.  Have fun up there. 
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Reinhard on May 21, 2016, 10:41:54 AM
The only place that I have caught eye's off shore there is by the beach toward evening.  It drops off fast there so the eye's come there toward evening to feed.   I fish by the boundary's of the swimming area off to the side.  There are other areas there that could produce off shore there and great places just to sit overlooking the bay of the lake.  Lot of panfish there in that bay.  As you get closer to that date PM me and I'll give you my phone number and I can give you a guarenteed spot for all the walleyes you want while your their assuming your going to bring a boat.  The trout lakes have brook trout in them and you can get them by throwing small spoons and spinners or just worms under a bobber.  good luck.

Fixed breakfast for Mrs. Fawkinnae. Mowed the lawn. Cut out dead gray dogwood (some of my gray dogwood looks a bit stressed?). Cut and poisoned buckthorn and a few little unwanted boxelders. Time for another blast of coffee. Then off to yard waste. Whew.

And if I have some extra time (and I'm still motivated) maybe some minor work on my bathroom tile. Looking forward to a campfire tonight at the neighbors.

I have been enjoying this thread. Thanks you guys and gals.

I hear you Boar.  I actually like to paint.  Painted  two houses that I have owned.  Not a painter, just had to do it but I see a project coming up here also and I'm not excited at all.  Especially when there is stuff like fishing this time of the year I would rather do.  I put off this project for a couple of years but my wife gave me some soft hints about getting it done.  So my time is coming and she has been very patient with it so I'll do it soon.  Really hard though coming off my trip up north.  good luck.

The warden and I actually took the time to do some dock fishing after supper. We caught bluegills, walleye, bass, and perch. the highlight was when we both had nice sized tail walking bass on at the same time. Just bobber fishing and enjoying life in this great weather.

Boy, yer making me awful jealous, Roony! What a perfect nite! Can't beat a quiet nite of bobber fishing. That has to be the most relaxing thing ever. Sunny and 59* here, headed for another perfect day. All my yard/tree/house/deck/boat /truck work and projects was finished a week ago...started early and went like a maniac for month. Now I can goof off ll summer. Gonna sit on my already-done deck under the umbrella and watch the neighbor replace deck boards then stain his today. He wanted me to guide him thru it; told him I'll yell over the fence when he goofs up.  ;)

Morning boys, just got back from a 2 mile walk paper is read now it's time for some breakfast.  Great times for sure roony. The whipper snapper had softball yesterday so today it's a putz around the yard day. Speaking of that,  thanks a bunch rebel for all your advise on grass seed, it came in awesome. What it boils down to is no more fetch for remi in the yard, he can rip up city turf at the park from now on.

Mornin boys.  Got home from work last night and the wife had the lawn all mowed.  Looks great.  I need to weeed whip today and maybe shoot some roundup on some vegetation so I don't have to weed whip so much.  I need to paint at least one side of my house too since we are talking painting.  Come to think of it the back side of the garage needs it too.  And the north side of the barn could use a priming and painting.  I need to get motivated to do them this summer.  That's a lot of painting isn't it? 

Last night was a beautiful night.  So instead of the frustratioin of not catching any fish I just took my wonderful wife out for a nice boat ride upriver.  Took a cocktail with us and Sammy and Buddy.  Perfect night for it too.  Saw some friends of ours fishing.  We just waved and kept idling along.  Besides I don't want to discourage everyone in the Fishing Contest by getting a huge fish this early in the year.   :surrender:

Our ribeyes turned out great last night.  Have some leftovers that will be great with eggs this morning.  The wife usually doesn't eat 1/2 of hers so that leaves more for me.    :happy1:  So I better start with breakfast so I can get some projects done today.  Have a great day all of you. 

Thanks for the tips RH.  May contact you later as we get closer to the campout.

Good morning everyone.  My agenda for the day is laundry.  Between loads I'm going to fill the castle up with water and make sure everything is leak free and working for the maiden voyage next week.  Then I'm going to go on an asparagus run with my GPS to get the wife enough to start canning.  Oh and I have to finish up mowing the yard.  I tried to get that done yesterday but I kept running into visitors last evening.

Great weekend at cabin.  Saturday with no wind the fish weren't too cooperative but I picked up three walleyes.  Sunday was so windy and fishing in a pontoon makes it more interesting but years of experience in it works fine.  Fish bit awesome and I caught em until I used my last baby shiner minnow, packed up and headed home around 5pm.  Need the rain that hopefully will come because the pontoon struggles to get off of the lift right now.

Good morning.  Great day yesterday for my youngest grandchild who's birthday came up, age two.  We were at my daughters and made up a bunch of burgers.  Simple, just the burger and choice of cheddar or pepper jack cheese on a Hawaiian bun.  Mustard, ketchup, and jalapeno mustard for a topping.  Fruit and veggie platers for the pikings and potato salad.  Plenty of adult beverages and pops.  My favorite one for the day was It's Not Your Grandpa's Root Beer [I think that's what it's called].  Very good but a little spendy I was told.

Taking out some pork butts for 25 pounds of Swiss Cheese brats for our vacation up nort.  Still have to make pulled pork, and marinate some Kalbi short ribs [thin sliced] for the trip.  Going to marinade the short ribs and freeze them with the marinade so they are ready for the grill.  The two pork butts will be smoked and pulled and I will put on my Reinhard Caught A Buzz sauce in the mix and freeze that also.  Making extra sauce also for the trip.  Don't want to be Mr. last minute as I usually am.  good luck.

Good morning all. It was a good weekend, Saturday the lake was like a sheet of glass most of the day. Got the boat ready and put the track system in for the boat on Saturday. We did go out about 6 and pulled a couple of tail dancers for awhile. Wife caught 2, me nuttin. Yesterday worked in the yard. Another fine day at work. Tomorrow heading down to the cities for 3 days of training on our 3-D printer. Fun, Fun. Thinking I may take Friday off to get a head start on the weekend. Havea good one!

I took the day off and it is rainy on and off here.  Sort of nice, we needed some rain.  Windy now too.  Guess I will have to do some inside projects today.  I am getting some action on the camper that I have listed for sale.  Would be nice to get that sold.  No big deal though it will sell eventually.  One less thing to mow around.  I think I will have some more leftover ribeye and a couple of eggs for my brunch today.  I get hungry reading RH's posts.  lol  Have a great day everyone.

Finally! Pretty well done with the frost assessments for the time being anyway. What a mess it made for all parties concerned. Several early planted soybean fields got replanted and some corn hybrids are still struggling to unwrap. Luckily that becomes a seed company problem at that point.

Had a productive weekend though. People left me alone long enough Saturday so we got all but 3 ewes weaned from their lambs. Couple more weeks and they can go to pasture too. Hauled a group of 9 over to the kindly neighbors' pasture so we didn't have to listen to their bellering. The rest of them were plenty loud believe me. While I was getting the fence up and running at the neighbor's pasture I got to see the bluebird come out of the nesting box. Always makes me feel good to see them.

Yesterday I took the weedeater to the fence at home to buy a little time until I can get there with some herbicide. Saw another bluebird so hoping it's using the house mounted on the old plow in the pasture. Lots of tree swallows in the other houses too so that made me happy. I reworked the garden and got a large chunk of it planted. Direct seeded squash, pumpkins, gourds, cukes and melons. Counted a total of 63 hills. Luckily we cut back; used to have well over 100. Also got the Indian corn planted. Managed to get the grill fired up last night and did some lamburgers while having a beer. Sorry no action photos but a nice way to end what was a busy yet rewarding weekend.
 
The Silver Hawk goes in for some electrical work Friday. Generator needed some attention last fall when I put it away and there's a purchased spare generator I need them to check out. Have them look it over in general to be sure it's ship shape. Looking forward to doing some serious cruising as long as I can keep Mrs. Cheviot from convincing me to lay the front seat down in some secluded spot. Sometimes I weaken and allow it otherwise she gets so crabby!  :bonk:

Sunday we filled the tank on the new Fish house and checked all the plumbing and even though my karma here isn't that great it must be working out for me as we didn't have any leaks.  Then a few neighbors stopped over to give it a look and 3 or 4 cold ones later they decided it was okay.  Made some pork chops and asparagus on the grill but nothing fancy.

Well yesterday I sold the camper over the phone from a CL ad.  The guy wanted me to deliver it to Pine River and I said ok.  Upon further thinking, like in the middle of the night when I woke up, I decided I didn't want to drive that far to deliver it.  I just sent the guy an email about the change in plans that he has to come up and pick it up.  I hope he isn't too dissapointed.   :bonk:  Sometimes I am too nice....  lol  I feel a lot better with him coming up if he still wants it. 

Another great looking day here.  Some chance of rain most of the week though.  I like a rainy day as long as there are not too many of them.  My friends up here tell me not to ask for rain since sometimes it doesn't stop.  That is why they call this the Rainy River.  I moved up here a couple of years after the big flood that washed out most of the bridges in the county.  UNREAL!  I guess fields looked like lakes.  Hard to imagine.

I heard a bird chirping this morning at 4:26.  Then I didn't really get back to sleep very good.  I got up early and had my coffee and made lunch and visited with the wife before she went to work.  Felt good.   

See ya all later.

Barry-  I'm too nice too.  It sounds funny and cocky but learning to say "no" can be the most positive thing in your life.  The bonus is you get to be the guy everyone calls when they are in a pinch because "he'd give you the shirt off of his back".  I have a buddy who can seem like kind of a jerk but he's a good dude but he will say no or what he really wants so much it's crazy.  His life works out just fine for him.  Probably a balance between the two is reality.

The outdoors is really a test in handling adversity.  Having a new toy like that fish house will bring some new adversities to your life you never dreamed would happen.  The joy will outweigh the bad and the bad is just more making memories.

Yeah LPS smart decision.  I too am that guy that "will give you the shirt off my back".  I have never had a bad CL deal.  However I am up front that they need to pick it up and bring cash.  But the last CL add I had this clown calling me about every 3 days begging to sell my car for me and this list of people he had lined up to sell it too. 


 I was very happy to see the rain at our place as we needed it.   :happy1:

Lunchtime! Need to go manufacture me a sammich! Not much rainfall and the breezes are relatively light so farmers are scrambling to get some fields sprayed before getting potentially rained out tomorrow. Some of the giant ragweed sprayed over weekend really took it on the chin. Love seeing them get rolled!

Wish my dandelions would do that.  What did you spray with?   Roundup?

It's clopyralid, trade name Stinger at 4 oz./acre. They've lowered the price on it and the patent is off so there are generic sources available. Stinger goes for about $2/oz. Good dandelion chemical, has both post emerge activity and soil residual. Sprayed the lawn one time with it in the fall and was disappointed. Didn't appear to do much. It was cool however. In the spring it was still there and just annihilated the dandelions.

Too bad about the daughter thing Boar.  My friend has that same deal going.  The daughter always has some drama going and gets everyone involved.  I guess it is how some people get attention.  Sure hope it all works out for you and the wife.  AND have a fun grad day.  Say hi to Haillie.  We won't be able to make it as we will have the grandson so want to show him how much fun it still is at Grandma and Grandpa's house you know.  Boat rides, fishing, rides in Grandps's truck over and over and over again.  lolol  It is great.  Carla is just smiley about it.  He is 5 now so I may have to take vitamins to keep up with him.    :happy1:

The guy who says he is buying the camper is coming up on Sat morn.  He gets a plate put in his truck tomorrow.  I have had 3 other calls and told them if it doesn't go through I will call them.  Will be nice to finalize the deal.  I am so relieved that I told him to come up here to get it.  I saved myself a lot of work by just saying NO.    :bonk: :happy1:

Well have a great day you guys.  Looks like some rough weather for some of you.  We are at the north tip of it so maybe I can get some mowing done tonight.  Still have to do some weed whipping.   Looks terrible around the barn.

LPS-  my dad's grandkids loved visiting at the lake and also did the truck rides.  He had a F350 dump truck he kept after retiring from the concrete business and they loved dumping gravel...heck who doesn't?  Great times for sure.

Checked the weather for the weekend and who knows about the rain but the wind is going to be a different direction almost every day.  I don't like that but we can figure out the fish because we'll have to.  Some of the best fishing days are the ones that aren't supposed to be.

morning fellers!!!!!!! hard at it early cause me thinks it will be an early out!!!!!!!!!!! pretty quiet on the union front. the anticipation of heading north is getting the best of me. my wife thinks I act like a little kid in a candy store when we head to the cabin. I think shes over exaggerating. not sure why since I have been going there since we have been going there 50 plus years. not sure I like dealing with all the idiots that go there on these  holiday weekends but we will make due.
it appears we will deal with on and off showers. hope no thunder and lightning as that seems to put the fish in lock jaw mode. have a good day gentlemen!!!!!!

Glenn,  I feel the same way every time I get a chance to go up north.  Kind of like Grizzly Adams without the bear but I do have my dog Lucy.  I remember one time many years ago a moment that I  will never forget.  Probably in my 20's and it was during firearms deer season.

We were up there a couple of days early and in those days, cocktails were prefered over beer for me.  Just couln't sleep anticipating the opener.  They were talking snow but the sky's were clear and the stars were out in full glory.  It was 2 am or so.  I was with my brother and we were having manhattens sitting by the fire.  He got tired and I decided to stay out there.  Put that lawn chair in the reclyne position and just looked up at the stars and the satellites and shooting stars.  Heard wolves, owl's, and other awesome sounds of the north woods.  Ended up just staying there and never did go in the camper until coffee in the morning.

Doesn't sound like much but that was sure special.  We did get snow later in the day and the following days not one star was seen, but the wolves and owls were there and even saw a young bull moose walk by my stand.  We still hunt the same place.  Public land in the wilderness, but it feels like our own after all these years.  Hard to move anywhere else and I don't see that day coming anytime soon.  good luck.

Please!!!!! Make it stop!!!!!

Had a nightmarish ending to the workday yesterday complete with numerous after hours phone calls and my neighbor brothers in my yard when I was trying to finish mowing my lawn last night about 10 o'clock. Was out looking at their field this a.m. and found corn seedlings like the one in the photo below. Yes, goofing up and putting a grass killer such as generic Select (clethodim) in the starter fertilizer rather than the bifenthrin insecticide can yield disastrous results.

In the next photos we see the culprit and resulting damage of said culprit. Seems cover crops have become all the rage except for one minor detail: No one has done their homework when it comes to pests when making this sudden sweeping change in cropping practices. Enter slugs. They enjoy moist, cool, and generally low light environments such as those created by cover crops. However, kill the cover crop off and guess where they head to next? That's right, the soybeans you planted into the cover crop you just torched off!!!!! This ain't rocket surgery folks... :bonk:

 Looks like I get to cut grass today.Whats that saying ? Kneehigh by the 4th of july.Mine is approaching that length!! I only cut once this year.
 Got some young kid wanting to rent my side lot that will help cause I told him you have to cut the grass.2 lots 3/4 acre each lots a trees to go around.
 NOT looking forward to the holiday weekend!!! All the city slickers will be out opening cabins, a few have opened some already..Just to much noise and the narrow dirt shared drive 3-4 blks long gets looking like kids 4 wheeler raceway even 6-8 year olds all day long!! Maybe we should have thought of goin to Wadena and visit Sandys mom and relatives??
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!

Just came through Wadena about 4 hours ago Dew.  We picked up our almost 5 year old grandson and then turned around and came all of the way home with the little tyke.  He is such a talker and says the darndest things.  Like clever smart things for such a youngster.  So glad I was driving.  My wife loves playing the word games and I laugh at them but I can only stay involved for so long.   :bonk:  She is wonderful and has so much patience.  I try but can't keep up with him.   :bonk:  I am already shot.   :rotflmao:  Actually I am having a little libation in an insulated coffee type cup so the tyke thinks grandpa is having coffee....  :coffee: I just love him and it is really cool cuz he likes saying "Hey Grandpa" for everything.  That makes me feel good.  I told the wife I am grilling ribeyes "for him" tomorrow night and smoming some St Louis ribs on Sunday "for him".   ;)

LPS, you said it great.  I remember when my oldest daughter was born.  Could not wait for her to call me dad.  Never been a dad before.  That moment was so awesome.  Fast forward and I had my first grandson and it was Papa he called me.  Now I have one grandson and 4 grandaughters and they all call me Papa.  So special.  They talk about the empty nest syndrome when your kids leave the house.  Never happened. 

Makes me think about this weekend.  Memorial weekend.  What to be thankful for.  I'm a veteran and I think of all of them including first responders every day.  To me there is no "special" day for them, for each day they are special to me.  Those who served, and those who are serving now.  But I am also thankful for the family I have.  My very special wife and all who are my family.  But those grandkids,  those grandkids, to me are so special and I am very thankful for them.  Can't get enough of them.  good luck.

It is a rainy day here on the Rainy River.  Go figure.  Well grandpa is at the bottom of the pecking order here.  I started watching a fishing show and by the time I got up to get coffee and get back it is on Sponge Bob Square Pants.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:And you know what?  I don't even care, I even like Sponge Bob.  I am getting an education as to what all of the little sea creatures are that are on the show.  How clever.  AND I wonder what they were smoking when they came up with this show.  The wife (and I love her dearly) is so good with Tanner (the tyke).  She showed him how to play Go Fish and he caught on right away.  Now it's dominos.  Really a smart kid.  Probably the first time a grandparent ever said that.  lol  I never had kids with my ex.  Thank God.  So Tanner is from my wifes son.  SO this is the closest I have been to having grandkids.  I am the Godfather of my brothers son who is now in his 20's so I do have some clout.  Tanner has his own bedroom right across the hall from ours.  About 6 am he crawls in with us for some snuggling till coffee is ready.  Of course that is my job now too.  lol  Made homemade sausage patties and eggs for breakfast.  He really liked his toast and jam the best.  Oh well.  He is worried that Bucko the horse is standing in the rain.  So now it is Bucko is taking a shower.  :-)  And when is Bucko (the gelding) going to have a baby.  lol  Ok I will knock it off.  I may need to take Tuesday off to relax......

Well I guess that sums up the program here.  Dotch, very interesting on those slugs.  My neighbor who used to have a huge garden had slugs a couple of years ago.  Perplexes me as to how they get there.  Sure aren't fast movers. 

Ok have a great day.  Grandpa will be taking a nap today.........

Good Morning.  No grandkids this weekend [next] [and for a whole week on our vacation up nort].  Barring rain, I will cut the grass again.  Man that stuff grows fast.  Finish up my boat.  Change the oil and lower unit.  The electric motor is still not working so I will get the foot control checked and then if that's ok the control board.  I will take my wife fishing Monday.  Grindstone if the landing is ok, but there are some lakes nearby if not. 

Found a cell phone the other day.   I was driving into a shoping center when I noticed what looked like a cell phone but I thought maybe it was just the shell.  On the way out, had a red light and there it still was.  Got out of the truck and it sure was a new cell phone and one of those expensive ones.  Turned it on and it said that my fingerprint showed an error.  Well, now what do I do, take it to the phone company and let them find the owner.  Well right before I put the phone down a "Home Calling" deal came up, so I slid it over and it rang.  A guy answers and I said "I found your phone".  "Where did you find it" he says.  Told him where.  I asked him if he lived in Andover and he did.  So yesterday Him and his wife came by and picked it up.  The wife literly broke down and cried.  It was her phone.  They thanked me and I asked them if they wanted some brats for the weekend.  Sure!  Gave them a pack and they were on their way.  Those phones cost close to $900 bucks I guess.  Well have a great weekend.  good luck.

I've always maintained that RH is a class act and he demonstrates it frequently. I'm sure the nudist colony is glad to have him and his sausages in the neighborhood!  ;)

Not sure of the entire life cycle on those slugs LPS but here's a couple of the guides I was sent by my longtime friend the boy entomologist. They're more in tune with field crops but contain some interesting facts about their life cycle. Have had trouble here in the garden with them when we get wet fall conditions and I can't get my carrots and potatoes dug. They gnaw on them and cause all kinds of grief.

Otherwise, we're on the graduation circuit this weekend. Had two last night and one today. It's raining so figure I can probably take the time. Likely to be a lot of "sheep people" at this one so that's usually entertaining. Maybe they'll pass the bottle of Crown. Wife's driving so I really don't care if I get a little messed up!  :happy1: The Stude is primed and ready for an excursion tomorrow. I had 'er out the other night to limber it up before taking it into the shop the next day. A friend called while I was cruising and wouldn't you know it knew how to get to his place so I could have a couple Honeyweiss's! Laughed more over a couple beers than I have in a couple weeks. Viet Nam vet and he's definitely got the right perspective. Thank god for friends like that.  :toast:

Well in case you wondered, yes I did survive the Grandson Memorial Weekend deal.  Actually it was a blast.  We are both pretty tired after it though.  When we got back last night we kept laughing at how quiet it is without him.  He smiled a lot so I am thinking he had fun too.

Well it is raining and windy here again.  Except for a hot nice day yesterday it was wet most of the weekend.  Now we are supposed to have rain all week except for some sun on Thur.  Having leftovers of spare ribs tonight and the last of the spud salad that turned out great.  I am thinking about spaghetti tomorrow night.  Seems like fall weather so inside cooking may be the preferred method this week. 

Keep your powder dry pilgrims.....

Back from a wonderful weekend camping.  Worked some bugs out of the new castle.  I smoked a couple ham steaks all day Sunday and made pulled pork.  I'll post the recipe when I can find it.  I know it had a sauce that included enchilad sauce with a bunch of things mixed in.  We caught a bunch of crappies 11 to 13 inches for a fish fry.  We also did cheesy garlic potatoes on the pellet grill.  They were good but needed something.  Glad to hear everyone had a great weekend.

Good Morning.  When it rains it pours.  I'm not a mechanic by a long shot.  Brakes usually squeak some and then you check them out and probably needs new pads ect.  Well I'm driving my truck and I notice a slight grinding noise all of the sudden so getting them fixed.  worked real fine the day before and no noises or any other indication.  That squeak usually was my sign for a a brake check but not this time.  Then my wife calls me when she was on her way to work that her brake light came on.  Plans change.  Not the end of the world but haven't had both vehicles have brake issues at the same time.  Guess I'll put off fishing till next week.  Grandkids this weekend plus some more sausage making.  good luck.

Had a great Memorial day. Stayed at a friends place and did lots of eating, fishing and wheeling.  Yesterday was catch up day at home.  Lots of running around, getting cabin supplies and visiting.  Today I have to tackle the lawn or should I say hay field.  Once that's done, I can plan and load up for a two day stint at the cabin fixing porch and mud room.  Maybe get time to add to the mineral stations.  You have to keep the deer happy.

Good Morning.  Got the brakes fixed on my truck.  Tony, who we cared for when his dad went to prison and he needed a time out from his mom [about 20 years ago],[calls me Dad]  came over and fixed them for me.  New ceramic pads, one caliper was shot also so I got two new ones and $186 later it was fixed.  Tony was never trained as a mechanic , just learned it by himself fixing his own cars.  Really appriciated it.  My wife's van was low on brake fluid so that I could handle by myself LOL.

Work and then it's off to the course for league tonight.  LPS every time the break light goes on the wife's mail vehicle I know it's time to change breaks.  She usually has about a week or 2 after the light goes on or both rotors are shot and its metal on metal.  I have changed a ton of brake pads.  My wife goes through a set every 3 months.

General I suppose that's a lot of stop and go.  My truck had no lights go on, just a all of the sudden grinding noise.  Had my foot control on my Min Kota electric motor checked and sure enough it was shot.  Got a new one for $70 bucks and it works great again.  I thought it was the control board but I guess not.  Glad it works again, a very important tool for sure.  good luck.

Yeah RH my truck is the same way no light comes on.   I just get lucky with the wife's vehicle that I get a warning because lord knows she would drive it past the pads,  rotors, and everything else.   She does see the light though.

Ya that was a good slam on Glen General.  So romeo boots is what we all need when we go visit the nudist camp by RH's place.  Can't wait to hitch up the Rockwood for that adventure.  So Dew those look like those really cool all vinyl shoes is that right?   :Clap:  I love the classy feel of all vinyl shoes.    :rotflmao:  And they are great in the winter on ice and snow.  They will know we are cool when we come walking in proudly with our Romeo boots on.   lol

Well went out fishing on a launch yesterday.  Tired lots of spots and used lots of different colored jigs and even did some spinner drifting.  Had a great time but just barely got our limits of keepers.  Let 3 big ones go.  The biggest was 26".  Left the dock at 7 and got back a little after 6.  LONG day.  I am as red as a lobster.  I could feel my heartbeat in my sunburned face as I went to bed last night.  Read until I could fall asleep.   Never had a beer or cocktail all day so may have to have a few tonight since I don't work tomorrow. 

Well good to catch back up with all of you.  SO Dew if you get a group deal going on those cool shoes let us know, OK?   lol  And RH how great you have the "kid" help you with brakes and stuff.  How special that is!

the wife got most of the lawn mowed, now we are waiting for it to dry out so I can do my share of lawn work.  :-)  Having coffee now and can actually watch the hunting and fishing shows now since the grandson is not in control any longer.  Might even get to watch that hot blonde Junie do her hunting thing. 

So I have 3 3lb pork bellies left.  I am going to put them in Pop's brine as Boar mentioned earlier.  I have Tender quick but no cure#1.  Tenderquick says I tbls per lb of meat.  That is 9 tablespoons.   That's a lot of cure.  I wonder if I should go to town and find some cure #1 so I don't have to use as much.  RH I hope you are out there to give me some advise.  I guess the Tender quick thing would work too. 

Well have a great day all.

Get the #1 cure (Pink salt) Tender quick has a small percentage of nitrate and lots of salt 9TBSP to 1 almost equal amount in cure 1.Salty. If you keep making cured meats get a 1 lb bag off ebay cheaper that way.BUT I heard Fleet farm carries pinksalt?? if there is one near you?? I order it caause I cant find it around here.

oh good morning, Got to my honey hole last night, standing on a rocky shoreline for 4 hours realy wakes u up to ur mortality, I hit the showen bass in the I fish picture contest. small pike that flipped outa my hands. about 945 I felt the classic TAP of a walley, I set the hook and it litteraly didn't move, I just held tension then felt a head shake, then it got pissed and made a for a run and rolled at the surface seen a white belly and snap. Gone was possibly the game winner. could been a pike, but was not characteristic of pike attitude. never know but if it was a pike it woulda been a high 30 incher for sure. nUTHING BETTER THAN FISH STORIES SATURDAY MORN.

Wow. I just seem to fall off the grid lately. Congrats to the Roony's! If I can keep the cucumber beetles at bay there may be some cantaloupe in your future come August - September.

Just a yucky past week. Whiny farmers, dumb rec's from the co-op and a crabby wife. One employee comes in Tuesday appearing to be ready for work, gets a call from his dad, then announces that he has to go home to spray ahead of the rain. Swell. No warning just drop a bomb and leave. That piles extra on me and the other guy who's more concerned half the time about his social schedule than his work schedule. These millennials are driving me nuts. They don't get it. We get through this spraying season and there needs to be a long talk about where their priorities lie. I've had it.

Lots of graduations this weekend and I'm getting sick of them too. I need to head to Canada and go on one of my patented 4 or 5 day benders methinks. Take some lamb, the Smokey Joe and go to where the cell phone doesn't work. Eff it.

Mornin.  I slept late today and it felt great.  Usually I plan on sleeping late on the weekend and at about 10 to 6 I wake up like usual and then think of how fun it is to have a day off and I get up and make coffee.  Go figure.  We had coffee on the deck and now I am making sausage patties and eggs for breakfast and then we are going to hit the local garden vendor for some tomatoes, peppers, cukes, zucchini etc.  That will be fun.  I made 2 3' x 7' garden boxes last year.  We use them and put the cukes and zuchini out on their own and let them spread.   I think I will make another box too.  They are kind of nice.  Keeps things contained for us. 

It is getting hot out already.  I am not used to that yet.  It has been pretty cloudy and rainy for so long this spring.  I even have the shorts on already.  Try to get a tan on my alabastor legs.  Remember that was Diane on Cheers natural color....  lol

Well have a great day, I have to flip my patties.

Good Morning.  Spent a week plus at the cabin due to some issues up there and to fish.  Wow...Memorial Weekend we had three guys and Saturday we only caught 9 walleyes but on Sunday 35.  A ton of 17 inchers and up to 27 inches.  All week it was good fishing but catch and release fishing frankly gets old after a while which is a good problem to have.  I felt like I was retired and I could see why fishing wouldn't have the allure it does to us Weekend Warriors after a while.  Friday a buddy arrived and we caught 20 Fri night and 31 on Saturday all to be released back into the water except the fish he brought home.  Leeches were the ticket.

With 5 days left I dropped my phone and only the right side of the screen didn't work.  Took me a few days of trial and error but after a while I could almost do everything on it by tipping in different directions to get icons on the correct side of the screen.  Problem was that when I used the tv remote I'd start thinking the right side of it didn't work.

They had a fabulous dinner for us after we golfed. Chicken and Ribs with smashed taters and green beans.  Back at work today, mama and I  made some more of them jar salads, so that's what I'm having on my lunch break.

2 more days of school for the kids and we will then have a Senior and Junior living here.  I always get excited for the kids for the end of the school year.  You can have prom, homecoming all the other events of the year I'm all about school ending and Summer beginning.  I'm also looking forward to my daughters books and papers to not be spread out in every room surrounding the kitchen.  My son is stellar at keeping his stuff in whatever spot he does, I rarely see it.

We're heading to Walleye World Friday morning...my son and a buddy.  Hoping the fish are still in the vicinities they were last week which I believe they should be.  Have a great day and LPS I finally saw the dog laying in the background of your photo...great shot!

the nice weather has us at work getting balls to the wall. gona be busy for a bit hope it don't take long to catch up, the bean farmers are knocking hard for their beans to be sprayed, but we got a lot of wheat to finish first. I know Ill be working till next Friday straight, unless we get rain out.  didn't get a garden in this year but I'm letting the weeds come up and killing them off. till then weeds then kill. Always have weeds, but I made the mistake of adding farmers manure 15 years ago, with all the maure seed that kept going to sed, it got ugly. have a good day guys, Go Campapalooza!

Morning.  Beautiful day here.  HD, I used to golf a lot but since I moved up here I just haven't found the time.  I even bought my wife a set of clubs last year thinking maybe we could get out on some weekend mornings.  My Dad still golfs almost daily.  Once a year my brother, Dad, and I get together and do 9 holes.  I love doing par 3 courses.  I have always liked irons better than woods.  As a matter of fact I don't even use woods when we do a regular course.  I lose too many balls with my slice using woods.  lol 

Have fun today RH.  I hope you catch some fish.  We did get our garden in on Sunday.  In the 3' x 7" garden box we put 6 tomatoes, in the other one we put 6 peppers.  We also did some english cukes and some pickle cukes.  We don't go big time but enjoy what we do.  Seem to expand a little each year.  We just started a couple of years ago.  Used to do the pails on the deck thing.  Got to be a pain.  This is much more fun. 

Later all.

I've played 80-100 plus rounds a golf a year for ten years plus.  Haven't golfed once this year...didn't work with my new lifestyle and I don't miss it at all.  I go to the cabin instead of staying at home golfing, don't get in trouble playing an emergency 9 or 18, only thing I miss is golfing with my son like I used to.  I stay in touch with my golf buddies still fishing.  It's a great game for hanging out with friends.

In my prime my ringer percentage was 34%. Use to pitch in state sanctioned tournaments and league. They are clay courts so no cheap slide in for ringers. Haven't picked up a shoe since my heart bypass but once. Rib cage felt like it was a little loose yet so I quit. Thinking I might get them out again this summer. Got sand courts in my back yard.

horseshoe stats...who knew they kept those.  Then again I'm keeping fishing stats this year.  14 of 15 days I've caught the limit of walleyes on our lake of 4 or more and yes I let most of them go. I will keep keeping track until my success rate goes down which is bound to happen.  Ironically I get shut down by the wife about 14 of 15 times too. :surrender:

I bet back in the 30's they probably used real horse shoes.  There are no bad sports that one can drink beer and play at the same time.

I finally did it.  I killed a deer in a dream last night.  It was a cluster for sure but my nephew and I spotted a deer in a corn field (we don't hunt in farm country) and we were sitting at a table by the field and I couldn't find my gun at first.  I finally found my gun which in the dream was my over under 16 gauge and I walked up to the deer and he ran and I whacked him with the bottom barrel of the 16 gauge with a slug right behind the shoulder. 

I don't know why but he was a medium racked 8 pointer or so, nothing special.  36 years of dreaming about deer hunting and I finally bagged a buck and my gun didn't misfire.  Sweet.

good morning to all. I little about my morning. I have a little mowing to do for the  township, a little cleaning in the cabins that are unrented for the weekend? I might even wet a line. The guy in the smaller cabin canceled as he said it is going to be to hot Saturday? I'm showing 82 and pleasant for Saturday, chance of strong thunderstorms friday?  Might get the sweety to go fishing with me, I have not been out but talked to a few golfers from baudett that have been down Monday and Tuesday and did real well? So that answers some of my questions of where all these boats come from for the day. Lake of the woods are a few of them. When I was mowing the ball fields Tuesday I counted 50 trailers at the access, plus another 10 or so at the other access.

Another great day here.  Going to get warm today and tomorrow.  Will feel good after the cool rainy days.  LL my dad had an old JC Higgins 16 gauge.  He never had the desire to upgrade his whole life.  My brother and I both learned to shoot with that old gun.  It was nothing fancy but we all loved that gun.  It was a bolt action but had a magazine like a pump for the extra shells.  I think those 16 gauges are underestimated guns.  Congrats on the dream kill.  lol

Horseshoes.  I have been thinking of that for some time.  Like a few years.  Should have made pits when I started thinking about it.  Still in thinking mode.  Talked to the wife about if she would enjoy it last night.  We may go for it.  Used to be the big thing to do while drinking beer on weekends.  Now it seems everyone does that bean bag toss thing into the wooden deal.  It is fun too but just not horseshoes.  The bean bag thing is more portable though. 

Thinking about what to do for the weekend.  May go up to the NW Angle to have a burger at Jerry's Bar.  The wife has never been to the Angle and I go all of the time for work.  She has been curious to go. 

May also do some ribs on the smoker.  We will see what transpires.  See ya later.

I have to agree on the horse shoes. Must be that clang. the bean bags is all right but I'm old school with the horse shoe. I better see if I can find my set and set them up down at the lake for the summer. Saw a brass and chrome set years ago and should of pulled the trigger they were sharp looking. I have never played that botchy ball and that looks fun. Used to play a lot of bad mitten  also had a net down in the water .Was a hoot diving for shots but the rackets  took a beating in the water. The greek and I had some outstanding matches over the years.

I've got a horse shoe pit all set up at cabin that an old neighbor, God rest his soul, put in one time without asking my dad.  He was a good friend but he'd come over on weekend and want to play horse shoes during fishing season all the time.

It's all yours to anyone who wants it.  Just come and dig it up and you don't even need to smooth the dirt.  He did do a heck of a job putting it in 25 or so years ago, it's still in perfect condition if you like throwing a metal object at a post and getting excited about it.

Spent yesterday working at the cabin.  It's finally getting to where I would like it to be.  I also had time to finish replenishing the last four mineral stations.  All 11 stations have been supplied with mineral blocks, loose minerals and salt.  Trails weren't too bad, only had to use the chain saw one time.  Just saw the first few deer flies so it won't be long before you have to stay our of the woods.

Cabin after adding new 2x12 beams.

I did an old school thing last night.  I'm leaving for the cabin this morning and I went to the gas station to specifically fill up for the trip.  My dad always used to do that as though there was no gas station between home and the cabin.  I was just bored and frankly I'm sure there was enough gas to get me there.

Seems that same trip to the same place we do with a little less angst than the old days.  Dad used to take a short nap before we left for home on Sunday too as though he was getting ready for the Daytona 500 or something.  The small playmate cooler always had two Pepsis in it for dad and a bottle of water that used to contain orange juice and one of those blue freezer/cooler things to keep things cold.  We were commanded to go to the bathroom twice before we left, once wasn't enough.

It wasn't like we were in a rush, 60 miles into the trip we'd usually stop for lunch in St Cloud at kind of a fancy place and it took a full hour to eat.  It was moms reward for cooking all week at home I think.  She always complained about the food...how embarrassing as a teenager but we always went back the next week.  Those were the days for sure!

I posted this earlier but it didn't show up for some reason.  I didn't have anything that important to say anyways.  Nice deer spot you have there Deadeye.  Yup I would sit right there having coffee and wait for the one in the pasture.   lol   LL if you were closer I would come and get the horseshoe thing. 

I had pineapple for breakfast this morning.  Got one the other day and cut it up last night so it would be nice and cold today.  Really hit the spot.  Gonna have to buy them more often.  I always say that I guess.  Did chicken breasts on the Daniel Boone last night.  Sounded kind of blah but they were great.  Had a nice brown on them too.  I have to get better at doing pics on here.  Also picked another batch of asparagus along the driveway too so they were the side.  Not sure if they will keep on producing or not.  Hope so. 

Later

 That place is sure purddy deadeye!!! I had a place south of Duluth years back, On a lake and in the woods shot a few deer out the kitchen window. My stands were 60 yards out the backdoor beyound the entry driveway.
 Place I am now I could shoot em off the porch but but,I told the ole girl this is a refuge for critters cept for squirrels which I thin out every 2-3 years.

 LPS love pineapple here too!! the ole girl likes it and watermelon more and I have to hide my taste or she says arent you going to eat this!! An its only been cut for 20 minutes!!!

 Hiding out in the airconditioning again today it ran most the night and its 82 right now with a 72 dewpoint! I moved to Mn for the cool northern weather??Where did I go wrong??? to far south I guess?

Happy Friday All! Not much exciting here. Going to grill some top sirloins for din din tonight. Then the plan tomorrow is to run down to the hunting land in Skime to put the trailcams out and freshen up the mineral licks. We will probably mow around the cabin too. Should be a good Saturday project. Sunday we plan to work on projects around the house. Maybe someday we will fish.  have a good one all.

We had golf league last night which went well.  Today the neighbor invited us over for supper and to hang out at the pool.  The grass is shin high in my yard in places (no exaggeration) but mow grass or drink beer by/in the pool?  Not a difficult choice.  Oh well it's not like I have a John Deere mower and need to cut it before it gets 5 inches tall.  Then I'm in a golf tournament tomorrow and when that is over it's right back to the pool.

Morning.  We had a great night last night.  It was hot out but on the deck we had a nice breeze.  Went for a boat ride and there were actually some pretty good waves that splashed us a little and felt good.  Shot a house sparrow off the martin house.  Just put it up last fall and have had no martins.  As we were sitting on the deck having cocktails here 3 martins stopped and landed on the house.  UNREAL!!  I think I should drop the house and clean it out today.  I shot 2 starlings last week that had a nest in it and now the sparrows.  I want those martins to come back.  I have a martin CD that my brother gave me.  He has lots of martins.  I need to figure out a way to put that speaker up by the house.  I have a cheap CD player that I won at a company Xmas party a few years ago.  Maybe if I cut the wires and get some speaker wire I could rig something up.  I hear it works pretty good to attract them.  Any tips would be appreciated.

So today it is cold outside and not supposed to get above 72 today and 69 tomorrow.  Seems cold after yesterday in the 80's.  i think we are going to mow and get a bunch of things done here today while it is good working weather.  Then tomorrow we can go for a drive in the new car or something else.  ????  I actually can't wait for Viking season.  Isn't that what Sunday is all about?

Wow Coffee that is one heck of an agenda.  That would be fun to go to the Open.  We keep talking about going to a Twins game but don't seem to ever make it there.  Too much fun doing other stuff on weekends.  Real dark here this morning. Pretty good chance of rain.  I sprayed dock yesterday.  Spent all afternoon at it.  I think I got it all.   lol  It is easier to spray it than pick it out of the horses tails and mane.  That gets old fast.  The wife got the lawn mowed and it looks great.  I also picked over a 5 gallon pail of asparagus yesterday at a guys place that grows it.  Now today we have to freeze it in vac bags.  We also had a nice fire last night.  Have a lot to burn with the straw off the septic tank piled up by our fire spot and branches we have trimmed off trees.  Fun to get it burned up.  Listened to Highwaymen radio and had a few cocktails while doing it.  Thinking about doing some bb ribs today.  Matter of fact I will get them out of the freezer right after I am done talking to you.  I just put them in the sink with hot water and they thaw out in minutes.  I do that with all of my frozen meat.  Works lot better than the microwave.

Got some good advice on what to put in a food plot on here too.   I have never done it before and hope to get it done next weekend.  Sunflowers sounds like a fun thing to grow.  I have deer in my spruce grove now and then and want to lure them in even more with some crops....     ;)  Funny how you can't throw out a pail of corn during hunting season but you can grow anything to lure them in.  That is government at it's finest making those rules.  :bonk:

Later, have a great day.

Windy and rainy on and off here.  Can't do much outside.  Packed the asparagus today.  Made 22  serving sized packs.  Put the 3  3lb pork bellies in the Pop's Brine now that I got the Cure #1.   Have ribs ready to put on the Daniel Boone in awhile.  Think I will do them the 3 hours at 275 and no foil method.  Will baste with something or rub with butter the last hour or so.  Kind of a food type of day.  Made cole slaw too.  Still have to do RH's Kimchi thing though.  Keep putting it off.  The first time is always the hardest with things.  Once you do it it is easy....

Got our trial cams put out at the hunting land and the mineral licks freshened up. Also mowed around the cabin. Need to start thinking about food plots. Rain a bunch yesterday, but we ended up with 5/8" of rain when all was said and done. Have a good day!

Ya we got less than an inch too.  Sure came down hard at times and the wind really blew.  Didn't knock down any trees though.  Gonna be nice for a couple of days and then rain again.  Maybe an inch on Tue night.  Wow General, that is a lot of rain.  I remember it rained that much here a few years ago.  I will never forget that.  Monsoons.... 

Our ribs turned out great.  With an hour left I diluted some bbq sauce with some red wine and rubbed it on them.  Worked great.

Morning.  Del, glad you had a great time up in the north country.  Always nice to just be there.  Woke up very early this morning around 1:30 am or so with what sounded like an explosion right next to our house.  Lightning/thunder, but I have never heard something this loud.  I'm sure all the neighbors were awaken as well.  Never really got back to sleep with the thunder rolling through the night.  Hope it's quiet tonight.  good luck.

I've noticed the few time I've been way too close to a lightning strike that it doesn't sound like normal thunder - it's like you described - an explosion.  You're too close for the sound to echo and rumble, it's just KABOOM!  Kind of like deer hunting, when a guy a little ways away shoots, you hear it echo and rumble through the trees or valley--you can hear the sound move.  But when you're the shooter, it's just BOOM! We had a thunder call like that one too, last night.  Definitely shook me out of bed.

Right after I moved here a neighbor asked me to jump in his boat and fish with him for awhile.  Sounded great to me.  After awhile it started lightening in the distance and was getting a little closer.  Fishing was good.  We were getting some walleyes and saugers.  Great time.  Soon his phone rang.  It was his wife.  She wanted him to come in.  I am thinking darn.  He said I have gotten struck or nearly struck by lightning twice and the wife is a little gun shy about this weather.  Then I thought, ya let's go in.   lol

One time my son and I were fishing north of Bemidji and their were storms to the south, but quite a ways away. You could hear the distant rumbling. Apparently there was a lot of juice in the air though. When we cast out our lines went up in the air instead of down on the water. We went back in. The end.

morning.  Got back from cabin yesterday and storms skirted us but pretty close.  Walleye fishing is crazy good still and we finally found the slabs on a different lake.  Had my son and buddy with me and we had a blast.

I picked up my dad's grave marker and am going to install it on Father's Day, he'd have wanted me to go to cabin and fish that weekend anyway right?  Love small towns, they let you put the thing in yourself and save $200 for a guy to dig a 6 inch rectangular patch and put the marker in.  Hopefully I put it in the right spot!

Looks like golf may be cancelled for tonight as the rain looks like it's coming.  We did only get 2 3/4 inches not the 3 1/2 I was thinking.  It's the daughters birthday today so I'm picking her up a new bike today.  Have a good one he fellas :happy1:

Finally able to get a chance to post on the Good Morning thread again! We've got most of the soybeans scouted and many fields are getting sprayed ahead pf the rain. Have a couple "executive jobs" to finish up today so that will work until the new rams we bought show up. We got the penning accommodations ready for them this a.m. Lots of bedding. If the stable flies weren't so nasty it looks like it would be a good place to take a nap! Adios!

Yep, coming in before the storm is a good idea.  My story is that I was fishing on Vermilion back in 99.   Got to looking awful dark over in the NW, and I saw some lightning so I cranked up and headed in.  Went past a bunch of folks obliviously fishing. 

As I pulled in, a Neighbor lady yelled from her deck that they had bad wind in Grand Rapids.  I hadn't been back in the cabin for more than a few minutes when it hit.   That was the blowdown in 99.  Lost 7 trees in my yard, no power for close to a week since the transformer formerly on top of a pole was laying on the ground.   Boat was ok.

I wonder what it was like for those caught on the lake....
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!

Del, I wonder if that was the year my wife and I were camping on a island on Boulder Lake near Duluth.  I think it was around the 4 th of July maybe.  We were getting ready to pack up and head back and I went down to the boat to clean the walleyes.  As I was filleting them up I noticed the far sky's were getting very dark, I mean black and this was mid day.  It was coming up fast.  I turned on the radio and the guy said that there was a tornado sighted near Cotton.  Well that's not that far from this lake.  The winds picked up and our tent was near the top of the hill.  Rain came and my wife, our two dogs, and myself went in the tent.

It got very dark, and I mean like night time.  Lightning, some hail, and rain.  I poked my head out the door of the tent and seen this wall of wind coming..  I seen it hit the islands in front of me as this wall went over them with the trees just bending big time.  I seen lightning hit one island with smoke coming out from a tree.  I looked at my wife and she was in good spirits and praying.  She told me everything will be fine.

That wall of wind hit us and our tent supports popped out of the soil and we went rolling over twice i think.  Us and the dogs.  Just as fast as that wall hit us it became almost calm with blue sky's soon after.  We crawled out of the tent and not one of those big white pine's craked or fell.  I  looked at our screen tent thinking that was history and there it stood.  Just a bunch of pine needles on it.  The boat was fine.  Well secured and in a protected spot, but did have to turn the bilge pump on.  we both thanked God big time.  I went down to finish the fish, packed up, and went back to the resort where we left from.  That place had some trailers tipped over.  We were soaked.  good luck.

In scenic wakemup village the storm lasted quite a while.  We were busy mopping and wiping rain water that blew through all the cracks and around the panels in the door.

There were pines maybe 18 inches in diameter down across the road.  Wife said it would be days before we got out.  Then the sound of chainsaws was heard.  Couple hours and the roads were open

atta boy Smurf!   Us lowely lumber salesman have been hard at it too.  I fed the dogs even and spent some time looking at fishing line on Cabelas.  Since I've bought the same mono for about 20 years it was a complete waste of time but fun anyway. 

I bought two new reels yesterday.  Seemed a couple in the boat were a little rough in my opinion.  I'd say they've graduated to being bobber reels for the rest of their life and they should appreciate the new sedentary activity.

On last weeks anchoring/bobber topic I had one on Sunday afternoon.  The wind died but we were fishing in the wind in the morning and the fish were liking the wind then.  From what I could see we were the only boat on a 2500 acre lake and out came some guys and we were drifting a 200 yard stretch from a flag on shore to the west.  Most of the fish were by the flag pole.  Once we got past the flag the fellers pulled up and double anchored in our "public" lake spot.  If I would have known it was their spot we wouldn't have fished it at all.  Very rude of me and I feel bad I didn't drive over casting some 10 inch bucktails and apologize.  One of the dogs barked at them for a while...well trained hound I'd say.

The wind at that point was blowing at a perfect drift speed right down the shoreline, anchoring was dumb.  We went to another spot and found fish there, I'd like to take credit but the fish are still biting good.  Water is 64 about.

Steady rain here.  We have 3/4" and adding more to it.  I hope my roundup does it's job.  Sprayed 2 days ago so I should be ok.  I heard that alfalfa is about $35 an acre for seed.  I am only doing 1 1/2 - 2 acres so that is not that big of deal. 

Sounds like you are a good walleye fisherman LL.  Gives me the urge to go fishing.  But being a Union guy like Smurfy the job is #1.   :rotflmao:  I will be taking some time off next week to goof off so looking forward to that.

Moning fellers, LL ya make me wann come down and jump in your boat, hide under the anchor rope and wen ya set sail, I jump out and surprise ya. Smurf has to get up this early to dust off his boots, its an all day affair. I started my second pork loin last night, first one didn't have the right amount of cure, then about a week into the brining, I was able to get the right cure and add it, my fridge is right abouve freezing if I turn it down anymore liquid will freeze, plue theres salt in the recipe of the brine and a lot of sodium in the packing solution and with the very cold temps Id say it fine. but to lean on the side of caustion, if I end up in the hospital over the weekend ya know why. so I started one with the appropriate cure. Hope to heading to cookies this weekend for Fathersday. All you guys have a great fathers day weekend, you deserve it, treat yourself good, and honor your father living and passed. Good day gents!

Morning all. Yep, raining good this morning. Last I looked a the rain gauge was 5 after 6 this morning and we had 1.2" then. That was just before I put my well worn, used everyday work boots on. ;). Being used everyday it doesn't take me all day to dust them off.  :rotflmao: I can't say I am to disappointed in the rain. Would be nice to see the lake come up some, it is pretty low right now. A person needs to be careful what they wish for though after 2 years ago when the lake got really high. Have a good day gents.

Hi all. Not much new here, just another day at the salt mines. And shocker, the wind is out of the east again today. Seems like this year the wind is constantly coming out of the east. Been like that since the ice started coming off of the lake. Got 1.5" of rain yesterday and looking like rain for the weekend again. Have a good day!

I'm off to the new cabin to replace the back door (destroyed due to bad footings on the mud room).  Also, if I have time I will replace the front and rear stairs (These were made 13 years ago and they did not use proper materials).  Good news is it's almost to the point where I will be able to go there and just hang out.

man has Summer really kicked in hasn't it?  Schools out, Fathers Day this weekend, and 4th of July right around the corner.  Gardens are growing, grass is being mowed, and we'll be eating corn on the cob like pigs pretty soon.  Just a month ago out fishing it was 29 degrees and barely a leaf was budding on a tree up north.  Thank God it's not Summer all year or my shrubs around my house would engulf everything.  Last night I had to trim some bushes down the steps in my backyard that had been trimmed in April already. 

There's so much to do I haven't even smoked anything since fishing Opener when I plopped ribs on the Masterbuilt.  It will run it's course and by mid August I will be begging for October days.  Minnesota is awesome right now...February can wait!  Have a great day guys.  Swimming pool at RH's nudist joint will be packed this weekend.  Stop on by...I'm going fishing.

Mornin all.  Well TGIF.  Although it looks like I have to work tomorrow too.  Last Sunday I sprayed where I am going to have my food plot with roundup.  I have read many different thoughts on when you can mow down the tall grasses and I did some last night.  That gave it a 4 day soak.  I have heard 2 days is enough for it to get to the roots.  I hope that is correct.  It looks like rain today so won't be able to mow the rest of it for a few more days.  I have a Plotmaster 400 that I borrowed to disc up the plot once I get it all mowed.  What a cool looking tool.  It take a good sized wheeler to pull it.  I should be ok.  Now what to plant.  I have heard alfalfa so you don't have to do it every year but hard to find small amounts.  And like you all said some brassicas too.  I am going to put my fishhouse out there between some popples and hunt out of that I think.  It will be less than 100 yards from my house.  A gentlemens hunt.   :happy1:  May even get the wife to sit with me for awhile.  Would be nice to get a buck with my crossbow.  Never shot a deer with it yet.  We will see how it turns out.  Any ideas or advice is welcome.  I hope Dotch reads this as he seems to be an expert on farming things.  Well gotta go to the union job again so see ya all later.

I've noticed the few time I've been way too close to a lightning strike that it doesn't sound like normal thunder - it's like you described - an explosion.  You're too close for the sound to echo and rumble, it's just KABOOM!  Kind of like deer hunting, when a guy a little ways away shoots, you hear it echo and rumble through the trees or valley--you can hear the sound move.  But when you're the shooter, it's just BOOM! We had a thunder call like that one too, last night.  Definitely shook me out of bed.
When this was posted I was going to repy with. I  believe 2008 a tornado went through Spicer,Mn. That storm hit a ash tree with lighting bout 20-25 ft.right out our bedroom window! Split the tree right down the middle. It was a flash of blue light with instant ROAR of a 250lb bomb 20 ft away! We wound up under a mattress in the hallway really spooked! cause the storms rotation was obviously bad watchin it circle fast just to our north!

  Heres the kicker it just happened again at 3:02 PM in the neighbors yard 100-120 ft away.I was mowing saw the storm commin put the car in the garage,Mowers in the shed,Came in to no TV the dish and storms dont work well.I was sittin lookin out a bay window admiring my mow job and the blue flash an instant BOOM made me jump Jeeze spookie.Been watchin for smoke from the kids trailor,Dont really know what it hit but it was a close one!!! OOFTA!!!

That is a close one Dew.  I have heard that if lightning strikes a place that there may be a reason for it and it could happen again.????  Back in the late 70's a bunch of us were in a friends Ford Econoline Van.  One of those green ones that were so popular back then.  I loved that van.  Well we were at a Black Oak Arkansas concert that was in the country by Spencer IA I think.  One of those towns not too far south of the MN border anyhow.  Well it was a hot day and other bands played too.  We didn't bring enough beer.....  Well at the end of the day the sky started getting scary looking and people were starting to leave since the party ( I mean concert) was about done.  We had to drive back to Luverne, MN.  It started raining torrents on the way home and was black as night.  All of the sudden there was a loud explosion (just like mentioned) and it scared the heck out of us and made our ears ring.  We were all looking out different windows and we all said it was right out my window. That was close. 

It rained 1 3/4" again here yesterday.  The creeks are full and flowing like crazy.  When I went down to pump my boat out after work the Rainy has come up at least a foot.  Lots of current and the water is dark brown.  Probably don't need any rain here or east of here for awhile. 

Was just out on the deck with coffee and there were four deer in the pasture milling about eating stuff.   :happy1:  1 was a big doe with last years fawns still with her.  One of them was a buck and his antlers are getting pretty tall.  Again:  :happy1:  The other yearling is a doe.  Then my horse was looking at something and there was another doe by herself.  I bet she is the one with the little fawn that was in our yard the other day.  I hope she found her fawn.  Well now I have something to feed in my food plot when I get it done.....     

I have to go to work for awhile so see ya later.

One time the wife and I got home about midnight or so and it was storming big time when we pulled in the garage. Lightning hit one of our walnut trees close to the house. KABOOM! We had a battery operated clock hanging in a central room of our home and that thing started going around backwards after that. Must have been a lot of crazy voltage running through the old farm house.
Unfortunately, time has still been going forward since then.
One other time I was milking cows in a parlor and the barn got hit. I went right down to my knees. The cows must have felt it cuz they all broke through the parlor gates, raising all kinds of hell. The electricity was gone and it turned out to be a crazy long day at work.

That will mark my first whole deer I've processed myself and I'm NEVER going back!

Happy Fathers and Grandfathers Day to all of you.  Coffee we just turned on the Open.  Maybe I will see ya on TV.  lol  I already posted this but it didn't take for some reason.  Will try again.  I have 3 -3lb slabs of pork belly on the smoker.  I had it in Pop's Brine for 8 days.  Fun to make bacon.  Your Canadian bacon looked great Boar.  May have to attempt that next.

We had some large hail and a couple of tornadoes spotted in the area this morning.   A guy south of us had windshields broken on some equipment.  The radio said some baseball sized hail was reported.  Glad all we got was 1/2" of rain.  That is 4" we have gotten this week.  Supposed to get in the mid 80's here so it will be a muggy one here. 
Well have a great day to all of you.

A little slice of time available so will type a little this a.m. Long weekend with the Back to the Fifties car show and Father's Day. Think we have the weeds in the soybeans beaten into submission for the 1st time anyway. 1st day of summer officially today with .11" of precip to celebrate overnight. After the car show Saturday had a birthday party to go to and seems I must've eaten something that sped my innards up pretty good. Got a lot done though. Office pest just showed up. He's like a bad smell. Can't get rid of him so think I'll implement evasive maneuvers and clean my truck out. He likes being sedentary.

The spot I suggested for sunnies and eyes?? That spot needs heavy boat control and slow searchin!! Yer timing for the lake was way to late or much to early 5-8:30.Best for me was sunup till 9AM then back out 6-7PM and used the lights and a spot to run on in.
yep............and your correct on all accounts. its what I told him but he wanted to go to diamond!!!!!! he did catch that eye on that side the lake though!!!!!

Morning all.  I have the rest of the week off.  Yes even us hard working Union Guys need some time to play.  I wanted to sleep late today.  Yesterday I had to work and could have slept later but couldn't.  Today I had the oppurtunity to sleep late and heard a bird chirpping at 4:36.  I finally got up at 5:30.  The wife just laughed at me.  I was thinking of clover and turnips and where to put my fishhouse/blind for the gentlemans deer hunt this year.  I just gave up and got up to have coffee with her before she blasts off to work.  I will do some more mowing and hopefully get to the discing stage today.  Curious to see how good that works.  It is a big unit for a 4 wheeler.  It is a Plotmaster 400.  Pretty cool.  I sure hope this plan comes together and the deer like it. 

Tonight is the meeting for the Take a Kid Fishing.  We fish tomorrow.  Always a good time.  Hope it is not too windy.  We went out on the big lake one year and it was rougher than we thought it would be and a kid got sea sick.  I still get kidded about that.  I won't take that chance again.  We just stay in the river if it is too rough. 

Well time to get moving.  Later.

LPS,
Let us know how that plotmaster works out. I went to a demonstration a number of years ago and it was a disaster.  First of all it was light, sandy soil with little vegetation.  Then the first ATV bunt up and the second blew a belt.  Fortunately a guy had a wheeler he wanted to show off.  After many, many passes, the plot didn't look like a field and I wasn't impressed at all.
Good luck with your plots.

Getting ready for vacation up north to the Ash River Trail.  Got a big list of stuff to buy.  Always take too much, every time.  Rented a cabin [well actually 3].  Family coming with.  So instead of my boat, I rented a pontoon boat also just like last time.  It will be mostly bobbers and leeches.  Last time we went there the fishing was great.  Lot's of walleye's, big bass, and some nice sized  perch up to 14 inches.  Got a meal plan all set up along with fish fry's in-between.  There will be lot's of fried potatoes for sure.  My daughters husband Erik will be doing his mustard chicken one night and I will do the rest.  My Philadelphia swiss cheese brats, Korean Kalbi beef ribs, burgers will be some other meals.  good luck.

Good luck LPS. I hope you don't get the rain they are predicting for tomorrow. I think we have had enough. It was an interesting weather weekend this past weekend. Monsoon rains Friday. Then crappy Saturday. Then big storms Sunday morning and again in the evening. We were missed by the ones Sunday morning, but the one in the evening got us. Biggest hail I have ever seen, it was between the size of a tennis ball to baseball. Thank goodness it was short lived for us, maybe lasted ten minutes. The wifes car has a few new dings in it now. Yippy. The roofs of the building do't look to bad, couple of dents in the ridge cap here and there. It is a metal roof. We did manage to go fish on Father's day before the storm rolled in and we caught some nice fish too. Have a good one all!

Was at the Waseca Experiment Station for their annual summer crops day. Think this makes the 30th one I've attended. Always good info, some of it better than others. Always run into people I haven't seen in a while. Spent the forenoon there and now I feel like taking a nap. Supposed to rain tonight here too so will want to get some lawn mowed perhaps and get geared up to chop some thistle patches in the pasture after the rain. At least get the mower hooked up. Have a good one!

Post by: LPS on June 21, 2016, 08:21:47 PM
For some reason on both of my computers the last day or two I have to log in each time.  Wonder why?  I got the Plotmaster out today Deadeye.  I sprayed a roundup type product 10 days ago.  It takes a couple of weeks for things to actually die and dry up so there is still lots of green grass that I mowed 4 days ago.  Ran the Plotmaster over it today.  Still wet so it did get mud packed on the disc blades but I spent 3 hours on a 35' x 225' piece of ground.  It finally at the end was cutting it up.  A friend told me it works much better after it dries out a bit.  Won't gum  up so much.  It is the 400 model so it is fairly heavy.  It cut better when I was turning so I swerved around a lot.  I will let you know more when I use it again next Sat. 

The river is ripping up here from all of the rain.  It is dark brown too.  No fishing here.  The whole south side of the lake is going to suck too for the Take a Kid gig tomorrow.  Will just have to make it a fun boat ride.  Who knows maybe we will anchor right on top of them or have luck doing a drift. 

I was wondering how you fared with that weather Jerkbait.  We had a few little pea sized hails but no big deal at all.  I heard the Faunce tower was hit pretty hard with that big hail.   Sorry to hear you got hit too.  We are going out of Zipple Bay park tomorrow.  Will sort of be in your neighborhood.  I hope it is nice out and the rain holds off till later afternoon.

Three hours on less than 1/5 acre.  That would take 15 hours of work per acre.  Good luck and keep us informed. I'm not trying to bad mouth the Plotmaster, just trying to see how it works for you.  Thanks for the update.  What are you using to tow it with?
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Dotch on June 22, 2016, 10:26:12 AM
Wow! It's still morning and I got a few minutes. A dab of rain this a.m., an even tenth at the ranch and .13" in town. Certainly not the rainfall event the NWS was advertising but more on tap for Saturday night. Still should be enough so I have an excuse to clean some stuff up in my office. Got a hankering for some New York strips again. Still drooling thinking about the ones I got from Fareway (cut 1 1/2" thick) back in February, some of the best steak I have ever eaten. Have some carnivorous company coming in a couple weeks so will attempt to duplicate that feat. In the meantime I have a couple legs of lamb slated for the rotisserie and a 4th of July party. Sliced up, then simmered in some BBQ sauce in the crock pot. Dayim! Making myself hungry here!  ;)

  Just wrapped up nine straight days at Alex Shooting Park with the Minnesota Clay Target League Championship. Ran about 6,930 kids through there in eight days. 1,080 yesterday alone. Between work, helping out loading targets (approx. 75,000 a day) at the end of the day and spending some time on the MDHA booth I'm a bit tuckered out. Had a great time and it was fun for the kids and that's all that counts. Can't wait for next year.

Deadeye, sorry I missed you on Friday. Couldn't leave work early enough to stop by the booth and say hello.

I am pulling the Plotmaster with a Grizzly 660 and I have it in 4WD too.  Another guy told me that if the ground is too wet it won't work as well.  It keeps raining here too.  Will try it when it dries out... 

That is a lot of kids Markn.  Good for you.  I just got home from the Take a Kid Fishing day.  We decided to go to Red.  Had a great time.  Caught 7 nice walleyes that we kept, 3 perch, and 4 sheepies that my fishing buddy is going to get the rocks out of their heads and then give to the kids.  We had 3 girls all under 12 in the boat with us and we all had a great time.  One kept doing cheerleading for the fish.  It worked lol and we caught fish when she did it.  Hilarious.   She also named the minnows when we put them on the hook.   Like Dale, Scott, Carl etc.  We then cooked hot dogs at the park on the lake while it rained.  We had a shelter to stand under.  Another great year.

Mornin'! Been bachin' it since Sunday so actually able to get something done rather than attending all these social obligations. Just me and the dogs so we're managing just fine. Car show on Saturday so finally got the Stude cleaned up after the Back to the Fifties. Got the rear mounted rotary mower on the tractor last night after putting up a makeshift bunny fence to keep them from eating the green beans off. That lathered me up so decided to cool off and mow some lawn. Border Collies like that. Riding mowers are fun to herd. Fudgie the older dog has it figured out. When it's hot like last night she goes and lays in the shade on the porch. Ruby on the other hand can't turn it off. If it has a small engine in it, the tires must be bitten first and if it moves it must be herded!  ;D

I hear ya Glenn. It's been too long for this hombre. I have a lake less than 2 miles from my house and never get there anymore. Got after the thistles last night and in the process knocked over one of the bluebird houses that had baby tree swallows in it. Little tykes appeared to be intact so one hunk of 2"x 6", a cordless drill and a few 2" deck screws later they were back in business. Later I knocked off a red-winged blackbird nest. No fix to that one. While they may not be everyone's favorite, they've never done anything to rile me so felt kinda bad about that. Did raise hell with the thistle patches though until about 10 p.m. so at least we're making progress. Maybe sneak out this afternoon and try to finish them off. Car show tomorrow and plan is to relax on Sunday.

Morning everyone.  Well, heading north to the Ash River Trail this morning.  Looks like it's raining there now.  Seems like we are going to get some of that here later in the day.  Looking forward to a week of vacation.  We will eat well up there.  Starting out with some homemade Swiss cheese brats today.  Something simple after un-packing.  Sunday will be my son-in-laws mustard chicken.  Monday Korean Kalbi short ribs cut thin., Tues, fish fry.  Wendsday my pulled pork, Thursday, at a bar down the road for something, Friday burgers, and Sat am some walleye with fried potatoes.  But we could have walleye or perch for breakfast every morning for that matter.  Rented a pontoon and we will be fishing mornings and afternoons and our meals will be around 2 pm or so.  I'll see you guy's next weekend when we will be back.  i do not think I can post from there, I know last time I couln't.  But I will post pics and stuff when I get back.  good luck.

Good afternoon all.  Just got back from Bear Head State Park.  Stayed Thur, Fri and checked out today.  They didn't have any Sat openings and that was way back in March that we made the reservations.  We had a great spot  Had lots of huge pines and other trees to give us some privacy.  It is also nice to see some people walking by and of course I always have to say hi to them.  I especially like saying hi to all of the kids.  I remember how special it was on vacation when we were kids.  We didn't have time to fish.  Just had fun with a fire and being in the new to us Rockwood.  It is so much roomier than our old camper.  I broke out the old CD's and kept turning it up and having the wife walk around to see if we were disturbing others around us..   lol  She can hear better than  me so she is the checker.  Then I turn it up a little more after another "coffee"  since you can't have cocktails in a State Park. ;)  Some of the "coffees" got pretty strong since they were of course in a coffee cup and I couldn't see what I was adding.   :bonk:   We had a great time.  Buddy and Sammy were just great there too.  Well it rained and hailed on us there this morning.  Now we have been home for an hour and the sky is green here and it is raining like a mother.  We came home to an inch in the rain gauge from last night.  There was a head for shelter warning on the answering machine from 3 this morning.  Said heavy rain hail and 60 mph winds.  Everything looks ok here..   Ok time to go see ya tomorrow

Hey all, The wife and I just got back from a five day trip visiting my buddy who has a place on Eagles Nest Lake #3 Southwest of Ely. It's a long story but we had no boat, really didn't matter much as our main purpose wasn't fishing, it was mainly relaxing and playing water sports with our dogs. I did  manage to catch four smallmouth off his dock that were between 17 and 19 inches long so that was fun. The weather was super, mayflies seemed to be pretty thick. We had excellent weather for the trip and just a great time, it was just what the doctor ordered.

Beautiful morning here.  Looks like rain about 10 this morning.  Man it is killing me.  I can't get anything done it is so wet here.  Well I checked and I did not get drawn for a bear permit.  I didn't think I would get one since I got drawn last year.  I was real busy cleaning out a good friends place who died and that was top priority so just put out one bait just to be doing it.  It finally got hit at the very end.  Never saw the bear.  Never even put out a trail cam.  Well now I can concentrate on my first food plot and try to stick a deer with my crossbow.  Now that I am over 60 I don't even need a permit or anything to use it.  Great new deal for us older guys.  I am not going to pull a bow back and hurt a shoulder.  I have had 2 ops on each shoulder and don't want anymore. 

Well I have the coffee made and am going to have a cup or three.  When the wife gets up I will make her some of my homemade bacon with some eggs.  The bacon is great!  Have a great day all of you.

We got about 15 drops of rain last night so just finished watering the small garden and about 20 some odd pots and planters Mrs. Cheviot has strewn about the property. Don't know how I can keep this pace up! (without gin...lol) Also sprayed some Round Up on a few small spots I'm getting tired of trimming around. Did some chicken breasts on the grill so need to clean that mess up. Just nice to sit still for a minute.

Had a fun day at the car show at Ellendale Days yesterday. Our club sponsors it so we don't compete. Lots of nice classic automobiles. I was on parking detail so was an opportunity to visit with folks about their cars. Luckily I had remembered to stock my cooler so could enjoy some refreshments in the shade between parking cars. My buddy Roger's day was made as when we'd finished, some guy whose daughter's minivan had died on the street wondered if any of us had jumper cables or a starter pack. She was  maybe 17 or 18, tanned with legs up to her armpits and wearing an airy low-cut dress. Even at 75 years old, Roger couldn't help her fast enough!

Hello?  this is the first day I've touched a computer since two Thursdays ago.  Went to the cabin and did some fishing and some chores unrelated to sheep.  Stained some decks, replace some screens, fixed and tinkered on some stuff.  I ate walleye 7 of ten nights, ice cream and diet coke.  Lost two pounds.  Would have lost 5 but the ice cream consumption was pretty high.  Good to be back, can't wait to leave again.

Good job with the kids General.  Good to hear you had a good time LL.  It does sound like fun.  The wife surprised me with some Edy's Ice Cream last night.  She keeps an eye on my cholesterol.  She got Butterfinger ice cream.  It was awesome.  I pack as much as I can in a coffee cup.  (large one)  That is my portion control.  You can pack a lot of ice cream in a coffee cup.  I did it right before bed.  Made it a little hard to fall asleep.  Oh well, it was worth it.....   I will have it a little earlier tonight.
 
Resprayed part of the food plot project last night.  We have had so much rain it has been hard to work on it.  I will try to get to some more discing on the other part if it doesn't rain tonight.  I will let you know Deadeye.  One thing is the seeder on it.  This seed is so small that using a hand broadcaster is the way to go.  That seeder isn't made for such small seed.  I suppose it is more for oats or wheat beans or other larger seed.

Will see ya all later.

Good morning. Glenn's weekend plans sounds similar to ours. Cold beer and a fire, doesn't get any better then that. Planning to haul some gravel on Saturday. Getting ready to pour a concrete patio. Was hoping to have it done by now, But like LPS said. With all this rain it makes it hard to get anything done. Also need to start working on the same honey do list as Boar. So many things and so little time. Have a good day.

After softball last night I finally was able to round up the garden with no wind around.  Tonight I'll be pulling the framper out to the lake for the weekend.  Glad to hear everyone is doing well and they will be in relaxation mode this weekend.  I think I'm going to whip up a batch of Glenn's Bloody Mary mix and tequila rose.  The wife did hint towards me last night about doing the grocery shopping for the weekend.  I pretended not to hear and switched the subject hoping she got the point and does it herself.

That Butterfinger ice cream sounds mighty good right about now LPS. Been doing the prep for the butt cam since yesterday and while I can crap through a screen door, I am hungry as a horse. Can't wait to get through this so I can eat something, anything!  :popcorn: Didn't help matters that yesterday Mrs. Cheviot had baked a pie and took it with her to Michigan right before she left. When I got home last night, the house smelled like fresh baked rhubarb pie sans the pie! Gotta get chores done, get cleaned up and a friend is supposed pick me up about 8. Wish me luck!

I need to get another mineral block today and need to maybe seed part of the seed plot tonight.  Have to get that done if the weather lets me.  Getting to be a drawn out afair.  Had a doe by the garbage can along the driveway last night.  The wife said she is waiting for me to plant her food plot.  lol

That's what I've been told too and I'd believe it. That stuff you drink tasted like, well, I can't print exactly what I told the one guy but after some of the Sweaty Betty's I'd run across occasionally, I think it explains one of the flavors. The aroma from the inside of my 5 buckle chitkickers that also lends itself to the bouquet. And they think they're going to cover that up with a little packet of lemon flavoring? Guess again...lol. Luckily I was once on the US Olympic napping team. Now I've retired from that, I still keep in shape by working out on the recliner while watching Bonanza reruns. Matter of fact, I feel a bomb session coming on this afternoon. And as far as your last line, WE KNOW!!!!!!!!! :rotflmao:

Good morning. When it rains it pours.
I have a nice busy day today. It started last Friday I decided to head to work early and get in a quick nines holes of golf. 3 miles from baudett and a deer come across the road full blast .Going 70 I had little chance and took out my radiator, headlight assembly and bent the hood. the hood still open and closes but I have a new radiator on order. hoping it will come by tomorrow as a my friend wayne is coming up .he's a old friend from my car painting days and is a body man so it should go fairly well. Got a ride to work after I smack the deer and brought my clubs figuring I would get in 9 holes after work. nope  we had a big group come in and used up the last 10 carts and I do not walk, I get plenty of exercise getting in and out of the golf cart. Go in the club house for lunch and that big group are also having lunch so no lunch. The honey bunny came up and picked me up and we towed the car home. Went to mow and the john deer will not engage the blades Switch?  pretty rough day. was awakened at 4 am Saturday morning with a sever thunderstorm just missing us. A second one came through around 6 and we had a few hail stone the size of a large marble. I was a little nervous about taking a family fishing Saturday morning after all the bad luck friday. I picked them up at rodgers harbor and we went to my go to morning spot where we drifted. Lost my favorite jig it was blue with rattles on it. We did have good action though and either caught a fish or lost one  the first 15 drifts or so. I told them I wanted to be off the lake by noon as they were predicting severe afternoon storms. I fire up the Honda 225 to head in and it fires up great, runs great, sounds good, no alarms and it had no power? 7 miles a hour at full throttle. I'm hoping its the fuel filter and will be replacing that today. Its looks like a two hour job. have some mowing to do for the township and the honey bunny is going to mow the resort with our back up mower and I will weed whip. I also have to mow the park  for the township. Boar is going to come up this weekend and camp down at the lake. We have some fireworks and I hope boar does not mind if we shoot them off down by the lake saturday night. have a great day and take it easy

Good luck Dotch. Did my first osconley(spelling) at 53. I waited too long and should have done the camera job at 50. I paid a price for it. My thoughts are with you.
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Dotch on June 30, 2016, 03:39:41 PM
Markn: Thank you. That's not the first time I've heard that from folks. One of my friends had the same situation. If he had waited any longer he probably wouldn't be with us. I hope you're around a long time yet too.

For everyone else: I am 58 and had blown it off too as it seemed I was always on the run with little time to sit still long enough to get checked out. No history of colorectal problems in our family so that probably didn't help the urgency. Not pleasant to think about and just one of those things that's easy to put on the back burner. The key thing for me though was when I passed some blood back in May, it was a red flag that it was time to stop procrastinating and act. The prep was not pleasant although the scientist part of me kicked in and and made an experiment out of it. If you're a "hold my beer and watch this" kind of guy that approach might work too. I also was fortunate to have a loosely knit group of support people who've been through it which helped make it easier and somewhat more palatable. A good friend hauled me to the hospital and brought me home so that was a relief. I came through the anesthesia fine but just the same, they will not allow you to leave on your own. And if driving within 24 hours it's on your dime if you have an accident coming off the anesthesia. As some pointed out, the procedure itself was a piece of cake. I was out of it and never heard or saw a thing until they wheeled the bed back from the operating room.

I was very fortunate. I have some diverticulosis, something that is very manageable with diet. Otherwise I got a clean bill of health for today. And I got to eat at DQ afterwards. Their $5 lunch deal was just what I needed. Getting time for a nap now though. Can only run on adrenaline so long.

After going through this though I would urge anyone who was putting it off and making excuses to get a colonoscopy like I was to get it done. The peace of mind of knowing where you're at is worth it if nothing else.

So Boar I suppose you are a rectal virgin yet.  LOL  Ya it is a piece of cake except the last few hours of drinking the stuff.  I left an inch or two of it in the container but didn't tell them that.  A friend of mine told them he didn't quite drink it all and they made him go home and do it again a month later.  They told me how good and cleaned out I was so it worked for me.  The first few hours of drinking it I thought this is no big deal.  Then after a while it gets slower and harder to keep drinking.  My wife handed me the stuff right on schedule so there was no getting away from it. 

Well looking forward to a fun weekend.  Of course some grilling and sipping will be involved.  Have a good one all of you.  Fill those colons with meat.  It's what's for dinner.

Hmmm...  :moon::scratch:

Ya LPS those last couple glasses of that stuff were the hardest to swallow. I asked the pharmacist if I could mix it with gin and laughed his tail off. 1st time he'd ever had anyone ask that he claimed. Luckily all my practice doing shots must've paid off. I finished the whole 4 liters. And as you said, the doc was impressed with my cleanout. Didn't even find those marbles and pennies I swallowed as a kid!  :happy1:

Just got off the phone with the nurse who was calling to check up on me and make sure I was doing OK. I seriously did not expect that. Totally back to normal today eating-wise and otherwise. Best of all I shouldn't have to do this again for 10 years. I feel very fortunate. I'm sure they feel fortunate to be rid of me. ;D

Need to saw up the crabapple this weekend that blew down yesterday. Poor thing had a rough 25 year existence. 1st a 50 year old ash tree landed on it about 7 years ago in a windstorm, breaking off about a third of it. Another third of it broke off in the wind a couple years ago and yesterday's wind finally finished it off. If anyone wants a few hunks of apple wood here's your big chance. Need to get a couple legs of lamb out to grill for Sunday's bash but other than that, probably have enough cooked ahead to survive. Anyway, think I'll pull the pin and sneak out of here before some clown dreams up some silly arsed problem they think demands my attention. Besides, I bet there is part of a liter of Boodles in the cabinet at home that might be going out of code pretty quick. ;) Have a good weekend everyone! :USA:

Just got back from a great family get together at my brothers at Ottertail.  So I check in here and WHAT???  No Good mornings?  lol   Here is to getting back on track.  We had a great time.  My nephew brought about $400 worth of fireworks.  To me that is a lot.  He bought fuses and researched how to do 9 in each sequence and it was awesome.  We of course had the Rockwood to relax in and one night we all sat outside it for the gathering.  I played a bunch of Clapton, Stones, Dire Straits, Van Morrison, Santana, etc etc.  Some great old CD's that have been ignored for far too long.  Will keep them dusted off now.  Dotch inspired me when he posted music things at HSO.  We went to Zorbaz for lunch on Sunday and yup all of the hot chicks still are there in their bikinis.  My brother and I were laughing and nodding at this and that so the wives didn't know what we meant.  OR we think we were being sneaky....   lol   He put some pork butts on the Daniel Boone at 235 for a 6-8 hour smoke.  After a couple of hours we see it is smoking like a mother and checked it out.  It was at 500 degrees and had been for 2 hours.  His wife had brought the remote in the house and had hit the button that turned it up all of the way.....   DUH!!!   We we took it off pronto and wrapped it.  It was still soft and already at 195 after 2 hours.  Let it sit till later and put in a crock pot after cutting off the outer crust of black.  After reheating it it was great!   Of course there was some loss due to the burnt stuff.  I would have put more of it in the pulled pork myself...  So if you are in a hurry just cook the hell out of it at high heat.  Worked great.

Ok this is getting too long, sorry.  Just missed you guys....    :happy1:  I had to stop at Blackduck and picked up some spare ribs and we have them on my Daniel Boone now.  All unpacked and having cocktails and loving the day.   Wonder what trouble LL is getting in today???   Or Boar.....   lol

Just got home myself from a 4 day weekend, the 3rd was moms bday and today is my sisters bday. I smoked a 10 pound pork butt yesterday for 12 hours that finished at 2:00 this morning, wrapped in towels and let sit for a few hours to catch a little nap before pulling. This afternoon was two chickens on the grill and taco salad. I had my brother do the pie baking because baking sweets is not my thing, I don't have the patience for exact measurements, my A.D.D. kicks in. Hope y'all had a good holiday, now it's time for a vacation to relax and unwind after having a few days off of work and going nonstop. I did manage to get in 36 holes of golf in.

When I lived at Ottertail we went to Zorbaz lots by boat.  The food was great.  Pregnant Burritoz are awesome, and great pizza too.  We we had the macho nachos.  It is a big pile of food.  It wasn't great.  It was ok.  Hardly any meat on it and not much cheese neither.  I didn't say anything but later when we all talked about it everyone else who had them (We had 3 orders of them) thought the same thing.  They were busy as heck too.  AND yes the scenery was great.  My brother and I can almost talk to each other just using eye movement and facial expressions.  LOLOL  There is the "look that way", or "check this one out" looks.  And then the "oh ya I see"  and "oh ya you are right" looks.  It shouldn't matter but maybe since they were so busy they hurry up the production of the food and it is not as good.  But ya it wasn't as good as I remember it was. 

Here is something my brother has been doing to get some good pics.  He has put a water tank by a tree and the bucks have been drinking out of it even thought there are lakes and ponds everywhere around the area.  I will try to post it.  I took the day off and hope to get my food plot done.  I may do what I can and just put the darm seed down at let it be.  We are supposed to have rain tomorrow so hopefull what ever state I have it in the seed will grow.  I am just going to go over the browned up vegetation a few times with the Plotmaster and spread seed.  It won't look like a dirt field like I had imagined but there will be cuts in the ground from the disc for the seed to get trapped in.?.?

Odd. It is like a morgue around here today. Spraying is largely done with the exception of a few isolated waterhemp and giant ragweed issues. Soybean aphids while present are nowhere near treatable levels. Had a couple calls but only one of those had anything to do with business. Kinda like it for a change after a brutal spring and early summer.  :happy1: Wife came back from her trip to Michigan. She's tired but at least she's cranky. She did however marvel at my prowess in the garden over the weekend so threatened to take me right then and there. I asked her what would the neighbor's think?  :whistling: On another front, seem to be having an issue with something monkeying with my bird feeding operation. Noticed not long ago that there would be ear corn left on the feeder when I'd go to bed and by morning it would magically disappear. This morning in addition to the corn missing, the oriole nectar feeder was knocked down. Thinking it's deer although they haven't chewed on anything in the small garden where it's handy. Another possibility is raccoons and yet another thought is flying squirrels. Tempting to get a game camera with my Cabela's points although I've got my eyes on another Glock. That would probably solve a lot more problems.  ;)

When that happens in my yard, a live trap hotel california usually shows it to be racoons, but sometimes possums. 

Golden Malrin and coke up in the tree away from dogs is another possible solution.

Good morning to all. A quick question? On the right you have recent. How can you backtrack from there?
Well getting back to the morning. had some boat issue this past week. The big Honda 225 idled great, fired right up but when you hit the throttle no power. Talked to Honda dealer last week and they said I could not talk to mechanic as he could not determine the problem and I would have to
bring it in? Did new fuel filter and no better. Talked to my good friend Jake and he said plugs . He had the same issue with a evenrude? Called Honda 17.50 a plug. Stopped at O'rylies in Bemidji and the gentlemen was great. He had to cross refrence a bit, but in the end found the same plug NGK. 10 dollars a piece. Put the new plugs in dropped her in the water and she runs like a new boat Imagine That. The boats name is Imagine That. Wow what a relief. Honda shop rate is 90 a hour. I make 10 a hour so you do the math lol.
back to the grind today after a nice 4 day weekend with good friends. Boar and his family camped down at the lake this past weekend. I missed out on the badminton but maybe next time. They swam , they went for a nature walk, barbequed, fished off the dock on the tamarac river enjoyed a couple killer red lake sunsets and had a couple nice camp fires.  Me and a buddy made a video Monday picking berries and I thought it was hilarious. Makes me laugh every time I watch it. 5 tries and we gave up. The bloopers and conversation . maybe you had to be  there but man was it funny while we were doing it. I'll try and sneak in 9 holes of golf after work as one of the perks working at a golf course is free golf.  Both cabins are wide open the rest of the summer so I have to come up with away of getting a few fishermen up here? Half price? two free rounds of golf with cart if you stay two nights. Anybody? anybody?

Morning all.  Well I finally got the food plot done yesterday.  i didn't burn it so there is dead grass residue there but I disced for a couple of hours and then seeded.  i then dragged it with the drag teeth up so it just was like pulling the 4 pipes across the dead stuff to knock the seed to the ground.  At least I hope that is what happened.  It then clouded up and sprinkle, heavy at times for maybe an hour.  We will see!!!

Back to the grind today.  Sure had a nice long weekend.  Need to mow tonight.  Too bad for the folks south of us in the state.  Lots of cleanup going on there today.. Looked like a hurricane on the news this morning.  2" hail in Kandiohi County.  Noone needs that.  Seems like I have heard some of our brethern are from around there.

We are having such a good time with our new camper that the wife is making a reservation for us to go to the Lasalle rec. Area in a few weeks.  I think it is kind of a newer campgrounds.  It is on the deepest inland lake in MN.  We won't be bringing a boat anyway.  Just camping and relaxing.  And cooking...

Well see ya all later.

And Deadeye you asked for an update on the Plotmaster.  The one I borrowed is the 400 which is 4' wide.  I guess it did work pretty well.  I have heavy clay type of soil here.  It is hard to work up.  It still seemed a little gummy even after drying for days.  It took a few passes and then I could finally see I was cutting in and making something happen.  I had to go in circles to get it to rip the sod up better.  This ground hasnt been plowed and worked up for 20 years I bet.  It is a heavy machine and that is good I needed that weight.  I don't think just a light disc would have done much...  It was real hot here yesterday and just as I was getting done discing the lot light came on on my 2005 Grizzly 660.  It cooled down quickly though.  I used a hand seeder and not the one on the PM.  The one on the PM is for oats or wheat kind of seeds.  This tiny seed I used would have run right out of it.  So all in all it was a prettty good machine.

Morning all. Just another day in paradise, work that is. Not much new here. Got some gravel hauled over the weekend. Getting ready to pour a concrete patio. Did manage to fish for a few hours on the 4th in the afternoon. Apparently luck was not on our side that day.
Have a good one.

Good morning.   The power came on at about 2am.  It seemed like every light in the house was on.   No hail here just some strong winds and maybe an inch of rain.   When I get home I'll clean up the garden a bit and fix the shed.

Mornin'! .63" of rain last night and relatively little damage from the strong winds. Guy who has a windmill east of town said it shut down twice last night. It shuts down when winds exceed 55 mph. With the garden all weeded to within an inch of its life and the tomato cages on was pleased to see how nice it looked. Indian corn that had been leaned at a 45 degree angle Thursday was standing straight as a soldier this a.m. Sounds like more on tap for tonight.

Morning.  Well I am a little bummed today.  On our local shop and swap yesterday I saw a 2013 Polaris 500 HD Camo with 134 miles on it.  Obviously it is cherry.  It had been on for 12 hours.  I asked if she still had it and she said yes.  I thought about it for an hour wondering what her low price would be.  Then I asked if I could come and look at it last night and she said someone else just got in line first. Darn.  I should have just said right away I'll take it.  Well this guy is checking with his bank today.  I am next if his financing does not go well.  I don't wish bad for him but I wish for good for me.    :happy1:  He who hesitates loses.  Something like that. 

Well more rain is coming and supposed to stay around for overnight and into tomorrow morning.  Will be good on my food plot. 

The squitos are unreal right now.  I had to wear a long sleeve shirt due to them.  Well see ya all later.  Wish me luck on this 4 wheeler.

Mornin'! Good luck in your quest LPS. I have 3 used Polaris 4 wheelers in varying operational status. Think there's an '01, an '02 and an '04. May want to unload some of them as we've gone more to Rangers and Gators for work. 1.21" of rain in the overnight so we're up to about 3" for the week. Mosquitoes are friendly but not as numerous (yet) as they have been in recent years.

Morning, General, I love your avatar.  Anyone ever get worn out from having a vacation?  Supposed to relax right?  Well I did some and had a good time.  Don't get me wrong, I did have a great time and I would do it again today if I could.  Just seems I'm on the go all the time.  Still tired.  Probably a good tired.  Nothing like getting a lot of fish and spending time with the family.  I'm the go to guy on the pontoon as well.  Get me this or that, hook my leech, I got a tangle ect.  I did only make one request and that was to get me a brew.  I was surprised as to how well the grandkids behaved on the pontoon.  Hardly ever got bored.  Had them reel in a few perch too and they loved that.  But You never really get a chance to sit back and relax.   I think that's why I got all pooped out.  I'm also the kind of guy after I come home and un-pack and felt glad to be back, the very next day I'm ready to do it all over again.  good luck.

Welcome back RH.  You are the Man.  That would tire me out too.  I love the kids for a couple of days and then I need some quiet time.  Man I can't believe the menu you have on vacation.  That is gourmet stuff for at the cabin.  We had a great time at Bear Head.  Thanks for the idea.  Did not even fish.  Toured the park went for walks and sat back and relaxed in between walks with the dogs.  AND it felt to get home too.  About 3 nights out is our comfort zone.  Going to the Black Hills this fall for 4 nights.  That will be a marathon for us.  :-)

Morning.  The other guy got the 4 wheeler.  So to look at the bright side I saved $5 grand.  I did get a buddy for Bucko yesterday though.  An older gray horse.  His name is Jiggs.  Very friendly.  He will think he died and is in heaven living here.  The grass is 2' tall and bug spray and even some sweet feed now and then.  He looks happy this morning.  So does Bucko.  Makes my day. 

We got 1 1/2" of rain last night.  Still spitting some.  Will have to pump out the boat tonight.  May even go for a boat ride.  Been so long I will have to retrain on how to run the boat.   :bonk:   :scratch:

TGIF..  Even though it was a short week I am glad it is the weekend looking at us.  Hope to get some things done around home.  There is a lot of vegetation issues to tend to with all of the rain we have been getting.  Weed whipping, garden tending, mow pasture, trim suckers off maple trees etc.  No end to it.  I am out of Roundup and need to spray around things better so I don't have to weed whip. 

I just made myself tired with that list so see ya all later.....

Sounds ok, but we are getting ready for a funeral.
Heard yesterday, my grandmother passed.
She was 93, so she had a long life and very active till the last year.

Anaway, sorry to be a downer boys. I hope you all have a great weekend. ...cause you never know, it might be your last.

I'm done with weekends for the season, Yippie. still will have some longs days from time to time but at least Ill have some summer, which I hate so we might as well go right into October.  today is sunny and warm.  gota do some shopping and going out to a movie with my son. wife is busting her tail at her partime job, sometime we wonder if its worth it, but that dang RN wage is hard to put down. had some tough glitches at work, the gps on the sprayer had been way of on calibration, and some farmer have come in complaining of skips in the field. glad I haven't been in the sprayer yet. I like the air spreadrs better. got no clue when I can get out fishing. trying o figure out what to smoke next , looking at a bear roast. Have a great day gents!!

Yup good morning.  That sounds like a fun day Boar.  Have fun with Nick.  Say hi from me too.  I have lots of stuff to do too.  I got a new horse to be a pasture mate with Bucko.  He is an older gray horse named Jiggs.  He will think he died and went to heaven here.  Bug spray, sweet feed,etc.  Sort of a retirement home for him.  lol  Jiggs and Bucko seem pretty content in the pasture.  We don't ride much but do brush and fiddle with the horses a lot so he should like that.  He is really a nice and calm horse so maybe I can get the wife to ride him. 

I too haven't been fishing for awhile.  I pumped the water out of the boat after work yesterday so thought what the heck and took Sammy and Buddy for a boat ride.  Felt great just to be on the water.  Today I may mow the pasture.  With all of the rain it is starting to look like a jungle out there.  Then we want to trim the suckers off the bottom of the maple trees.  Anyone know how to prevent them from coming out of the trunk right at the ground level?  They are a pain. 

We might have a fire too.  The wife likes that and so do I.  Well see ya all later.  Have a great day.  Here is a pic of the wife and Jiggs with Bucko looking on..

Good morning.  I just clicked the pic and it was fine and larger.  Kind of wish the pics t hat folks post here were a tad larger.  Maybe it's our end?  Got a lot of catch up to do around the house.  Nothing new though.  Seems like I'm always behind.  My garage is a mess.  Most of the stuff is from the kids for "temporary" storage.  Some of the stuff has been in there temporarily for years.  Hopefully we can do a garage sale this fall.  Man I sure miss being up north.  I have always missed it since I moved from Duluth in the early 70's because of lack of jobs at the time.  Just came back from 3 years in the Army and it was hard to find a job.  Steel Plant closed and that was a major employer along with other places.  Maybe next week I'll head up for a days fishing.  I have to have birch and pine trees around me to feel comfortable.  good luck.

Post by: Boar on July 09, 2016, 09:55:44 AM
This come from LL, he showed me how to do pic from the fone so they are not upside down or sideways.

1. take picture
2. its automatically save to ur phone. go to your gallerie.
3. click on the pic you want to up load.
4. when enlarges on your fonedown on the bottom you will have some options.
         adjust       share        edit       delete.

at the top of the picture you have a back arrow a star and the word More. if you click on more it will tell you what size your picture is it gives you indepth detail of the picture. and I will explain more on "more" later.
5. hit the edit button.
       then on the bottom of the picture will appear these words
      adjust     tone    effect    drawing    add image........ then select "adjust"
 up pops a grid around the picture, this grid allows you to take your finger and basically crop it down in size, I usually crop where I have the most back ground in the picture I don't care about. " a little in from the left, a little in front the right, maybe a little down from the top
6. then at the top of the pic youl  have "Cancel      "Apply"  hit apply this start the save mode.
7. up will pop.    undo.....redo.....save. .......select save. now this picture is saved to my gallerie to post. I then hit my back button and erase original pic so not to get confused on which one to post cause their the same but slightly different.
8 then when on the forum hit attachments and options a then browse. then documents, which will take you to you gallerie icon, clikc that and selct your pic, then hit post. it will take longer than on a PC so I put it down and go do something for a minuet. some pics take longer than others, and I generally don't do more than 1 pic at a time to much data for the phone to process.
9. the more button has more windows, rotate left.... rotate right. ive tried these but it dosent work.  hit details and it gives you infor on the pic, it tells me date taken, and properties, the size of the pic and what format its in. if it says jpeg, our forum wont accept jpeg, so ya go thru the process I just laid out. same when you get a picture message, its in jpeg format and will need to be adjusted. hope this helps.

Sounds like a good way to spend a Sunday Boar.  Yesterday I mowed the pasture with the 1951 WD.  I keep thinking of getting something newer but it works great so kind of like the ol girl.  Pasture looks great too.  Going to finish up some mowing today and start mowing the yard.  Never ends.  Looks like a nice day with a nice breeze.  That will feel good.  Pretty still here yesterday and it got pretty hot.  Well off on a little wheeler ride first.  See ya later.  May do some ribs again today.  Sundays have turned into ribs day I guess......

Talked her into getting stuff to make Ruben samiches fur Wednesday and ribs fur Thursday. Friday is usually burger night. So I guess we have the week planned. Prolly do some zucchini on the grill, cause we got a few ready.
While Mama is in the house cleaning, I'll be out in the barn working on the boat getting it ready for the Canada trip...that's about it for today.

In recovery mode from Farm and City Days. Had the Stude out at the car show and then took Mrs. Cheviot on a short drive to a restaurant afterwards since the car was dirty. Got .93" of rain this a.m. which was a surprise. Well, not really because we have hay down. The forecast on Friday looked like a "go" so I gave the word to the guy cutting it. Oh well, not my first rodeo when it comes to putting up hay and unfortunately probably not my last. I do like having access to a source of top shelf lamb that I can control and baling hay is one of the prices to pay. Speaking of that, best get out some to thaw for supper and continue chores inside the house. Looks like one more shot of rain approaching from the MN River valley then maybe can do something outside after that. Where to begin though... :scratch:

Morning from here too.  We had lots of thunder this morning and some rain but not a lot.  The mosquitoes are as bad as I have ever seen.  Just thick, even hard to inhale  without taking one in.  They are the worst part of summer.  Lots of deer in the fields this morning.  I suppose the bugs chased them out of the woods.  Man I can't wait for fall and Viking season and hunting season.  With no mosquitos.....

State Singles Champ. in Alex. Should've stayed home looking at my scores. Had fun with the guys I shot with and that's what counts.

Morning all, no golfing, fishing or grilling over the weekend, I put a new roof on the house and shed. I have about 30 muscles hurting right now that I didn't even knew I had so it was real tough being at the shop this morning at 4:00 to let the milk man in. Today is cutting the grass and weed whacking that I put off doing the roof and to make it even worse its going to be 90 degrees humid and not a cloud in the sky. I just keep telling myself 2 more months and I'll be up to vermilion fishing for the week. Well enough whining from me, y'all have a good day

Dodged another bullet this morning. Had looked at my hay that was cut Friday last night after it received almost an inch of rain in the a.m. It hadn't dried a lick underneath. When I flipped the windrow over it looked like it had just been cut, barely even wilted yet. Neighbor who cut it called and was wondering if we could work a trade. He's going to rake and chop his (also cut Friday) then blow it in the silo this afternoon. Since there's no way mine will get dry enough to bale today and with potential heavy rain being forecast tonight, he was wondering if we should chop mine and work a trade back on some small squares off his other piece that's still standing. Would be a good deal to get the windrows off the fields one way or the other as the third crop underneath is already marching along. Also be nice to harvest the hay so someone can utilize it while it still has some nutritional value. Sounds like a win-win deal to me. Gets me out of baling hay for a while anyway. I love it when a plan comes together.  :happy1:

Aw Yes good morning to all. Just plugging away here on the shores of upper red lake. The wife and I headed down to clear lake north of milacs Saturday morning. Spent the day swimming and doing some ribs on the grill. They were good but still have to per fect them as I over cooked them a bit on the grill. We had no fishermen for the weekend soo it was a good time to get out of town. From what I here the fishing is still real good. I hope to get out some time in the next few days for a first hand report.  Got the new radiator in the beater after plowing that deer so the sweetie is happy I'm not driving her car to work. Got in 9 holes of golf after work yesterday which was sweet. Plenty of projects to do around here .Got some new boards for the dock on the river, plenty of mowing and weed whipping, change the oil on the small boat motor and put in new plugs. Mow the ball fields if its not to wet. Also have a neighbors cabin that needs mowing and weed whipping. Still no fishermen staying in the cabins the rest of the summer ? No takers on my play and stay package deal . Looks like white caps on the lake today so the access will be quiet. Have a great day and take it easy

Man Cookie that is a great deal.  Surprised noone has taken you up on it yet.  We only had 1/4" of rain here so got lucky.  Looked at the food plot Sunday and I can see the little plants just peking through.  Wondering if I put it on thick enough. Will wait and see.  I have some seed left so can always seed some more I guess.  Have had a doe and twin fawns running around in the pasture since I mowed it.  Maybe less bugs since the forest has been cut down out there.  It was pretty long. 

Just saw something interesting on Wcco a few minutes ago.  A food guy was the guest today that makes hot dogs in Chicago.  He doesn't use nitrates anymore when making and smoking hot dogs.  He uses celery juice instead.  ???  Do you know anything about that RH?  All natural. 

Well off to work.  Update the wife just called and the doe jumped in front of her in the driveway and ran into our spruce grove.  Lots of activity.  I hope the buck I have seen hangs aroung till crossbow season.....

Celery juice contains nitrates, or is it nitrites?  So they get the same result, but get to put "all natural, no nitrates" on the label, like using cane juice or concentrated gape juice instead of sugar.

Well hopefully everyone made it through yesterday and doesn't have any damage or got hurt.  It was pretty calm by me even though the next town east had the tornado.  We had about 7/10ths.  Today is supposed to be nice and I'm hoping to hit the course after work. 
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Reinhard on July 12, 2016, 09:05:45 AM
Ya we really didn't get much rain here.  Distant thunder from other cells however.  As far as the celery juice or powder, the USDA currently does not recognize naturally occurring nitrates as effective curing agents in meats, so if using celery juice or powder the products need to be cooked and marked uncured.  Plus the use of natural products, such as celery juice powder,  which contains nitrates are NOT recommended for making bacon for example.  This is because bacon is cold smoked for long hours for the most part.  I cold smoke my sausage also so this would not work for me.  I think I'll just stick to the proven ways of safe set guidelines for my smoked bacon or sausage.  I think you could use this for "hot" smoking however.  good luck.

A lot of racket about midnight but only .13". Not complaining. We have plenty of moisture for a while. Hay got chopped and blown in the neighbor's silo ahead of it so have to be happy about that. I really didn't miss baling it. Think I'd trust RH more than 'CCO. They don't ever have any info about RH's nudist neighbors.

So much the better to sell to the "naturals", getting to mark it as "uncured" but it still looks good and tastes the same.

Morning.  That sucks with the internet doesn't it.  Man has that become a big part of our lives.  Too bad about the surgery options Dew.  Have had a few myself and each one was a complete success.  I am thankful for that.  We barely got any rain here the last few days.  It has been real windy though.  At least that keeps the squitos somewhat at bay if you are outside.  Well can't wait for the weekend. 
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Dotch on July 13, 2016, 11:09:08 AM
Bummer dew. Not to be nosy but what are you doctoring for? Best wishes for a successful surgery.  :happy1:
Raining again here this a.m. Not a lot but enough to keep us inside and wondering how long it will last. Looks to be about out of here. St. James got pounded earlier so am wondering if that wasn't what interrupted the internet here. Century Link has their main internet stuff there. Checked the "official" rain gauge and it shows .06". The fancy electronic gauge showed nothing even though it's supposed to be calibrated down to hundredths. And they want to make farm management decisions based off of the readings from those things? Oh well, at least the air isn't so heavy now and the temperature is a comfy 70 degrees.   
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!

0.06 inches of rain would affect farm decisions?

Post by: Dotch on July 13, 2016, 12:54:28 PM
0.06 inches of rain would affect farm decisions?

It does when it's off every time it's measured as this one has been del. A few tenths or more here and there per rainfall event can amount to several inches over the course of a growing season. I've recorded 35 rainfall events thus far since April in town and more than that at home since the gauge wasn't operational until April 7th here. That can make a major difference when it comes to recommendations for mobile nutrients such as nitrogen or in estimating crop condition. That's why after being asked, we decided to take on maintaining and reading another gauge here in town for Waseca county and the State Climatology Dept. I've been recording data for one at my farmstead since 2008 and have that data for our use at my fingertips. Great for settling arguments. He who has the most quality data wins!  ;) Electronic gadgetry is fine but when it's consistently inconsistent as some of the gauges and techniques in the commercial systems have been, they have to go back to old school to correct their data. Climate Corp for instance is trying to estimate rainfall from satellite imagery and if you want to talk about erroneous data to base management decisions upon, there you have it. I have that service on my phone as well just to check it against my official gauge that's mounted in the middle of the area they're reporting. They've been off over 2" off not just once but several times! Can you imagine how much additional nitrogen might be recommended by using data like that? Their disclaimer at the bottom in the fine print is that they refine their numbers after a number of days and that if you think their numbers are off, you should notify them. Right. I sign up for a service and you want me to notify and correct your data for you? I don't think so.  :rotflmao:

Lots of fascinating weather info and data on this site. I'm proud to be one of over 1500 volunteers in MN providing this data. It's used to determine flooding potential by the NWS when we have heavy rains, predict runoff in the spring from the snowfall measurements as well as for drought/water deficits. It's also used by commercial services to correct their data as you can see!  :happy1:

 http://www.climate.umn.edu/HIDENsityEdit/HIDENweb.htm  (http://www.climate.umn.edu/HIDENsityEdit/HIDENweb.htm)

Since I am a bit of a weather freak, I also maintain a Skywarn ID to call in significant weather events such as, rainfall amounts, hail, tornadoes, etc. to the NWS in Chanhassen. Sometimes they even call me.
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: delcecchi on July 13, 2016, 02:09:03 PM
So, the gauge in question is consistently low?  Interesting problem of how to measure small rain events.
Thanks for interesting post.
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Dotch on July 13, 2016, 03:34:21 PM
No del, it's just sorta all over the place and seems to be getting more erratic as the season wears on. Think the particular model in question uses the tipping bucket mechanism for measurement. Always possible some wiseacre may have stuck something in it over Farm and City Days. I purposely tucked the most recent plastic gauge well off the street to help avoid vandalism or tampering.  What I am guessing is the electronic gauges may need re calibration and probably some periodic maintenance just like the old school gauges. It may be full of dust or beeswings from the elevator next door, bird poop, or other assorted crud. The plastic model we use has a 4" diameter collection funnel with roughly a 1/4" hole in it which drops the precip into a center cylinder for measurements of up to one inch. For precip over an inch, the overflow is collected in the outer cylinder then measured back using the center cylinder. I need to clean the robin poop out of the funnel religiously to keep the hole from being plugged. Also clean the algae out when it starts to build up in the center cylinder. We always strive to maintain the quality of the data at a high level.

Morning.  I ordered a rifled slug barrell and a Nikon scope for my 870 20 gauge.  Where I grew up in Luverne all we could use was slugs.  After years of shooting our bird guns a buddy and I got Ithaca Deer Slayers and man did they change everything.  We had to start aiming at vitals instead of volleying 2 or 3 shots at the body of a deer and hoping one of them hit somewhere.  I have always wanted to do the 20 gauge thing. 

The weekend is getting closer.  I have to work on Sat but am looing forward to Sunday to get some things done here.  I am also going to look at a 2002 Alumacraft 175 with a Honda 130 hp 4 stroke.  Does anyone have one of these.  Would like to know how you like it. I will post this elsewhere too, like in the boating forum.

SGood luck Barry, hope it works out. Morning all. Wet here, lots of rain not sure how much but give ya an idea of how dry it was, my sump pump hasn't budge, I even checked to make sure its running and the want even any wather in the bottom, so this rain is much needed in this area. heading towards the weekend. working on a few things, hope to get out anc check some cams this weekend. I bought a new towy for the castle. alled    ICNUTZ, its a two and three nut system that allows the nuts to slip over the slow gear of the winch system the had a 1" socket and drill adaptor to raise the castle, with a 18v olt drill, haven't tried them out yet, but will this weekend. kinda spendy tho. Have a great day.

Good luck on the boat. Morning all. It is amazing how dry west central MN is/was and up here we are just drenched. The ground is saturated. When we get a 1/4 to 1/2 inch of rain there are puddles in the fields. It also makes it hard to get anything done outside after work. Glad you got some rain down your way Boar. I know it was needed. Still hoping to go pick some blue berries this weekend. If it don't rain. Have a good day all.

Barry, I  believe that member "Wyofish" has a Honda on his boat. I personally have not had to work on one,  so I don't know of any issues. He drives his boat up in Canada with us every year, so maybe he'll chime in, or you can pm him for insight.

 That cylinder rain gauge is what I got for free from the local water district, seki disk and measuring tape  and steral testing jars came with it when I went through a class to be a water tester for the lake we live on.
 Its accureate and I dont have the bird poop just alga problems in the inside tube.
 Today is a bummer for me and my sister,Bro and families.My Dad died yesterday he would have been 100 yrs old Aug 25th.We knew it was near and he was in Hospis care.
 Fri I get CT results and Dotch I had many surgeries but this one was in 2011 they removed 2 disks in my neck.That healed an fused great then to finish the procedure 3 more disks removed in 2014.I got a pic Xray of my neck when I first saw it I thought WOW!! even a xray tech said she saw people with hardware but never this much in a neck.I had to have it done I was told it had to happen back in 2000 or I would be a quadraplegic.
Looking from back to front a plate in front of my spine and then 2 bars in the rear 16 screws

Ya Dew how cool that your Dad worked on those projects.  Sort of a monument to him.  If I ever go there I will think of him. 
I have to work tomorrow so maybe I will bolt out of there a little early today.  Maybe get some mowing done so I have more time to work on the new deer blind that will be by the new food plot....   ;)  :happy1:  I think the wife will enjoy sitting with me sometimes so I call all of this stuff "hers"   ;) everytime I spend more money on the project.  She smiles and knows I am just buttering her up. 

Also I put the Ol' Crestliner up for sale in the local Swap and Shop just in case I like this boat we are going to look at.  I haven't used it in a couple of years so why keep it around.  Good boat for someone else to play with.  I will then sell the Lund also and be down to one boat.  Of course still have the 14' so technically 2 boats..

Looks like a great day today so enjoy it all.  Hope the high water isn't hurting any of you...

After that I will head home and get the wifey to go in search of blueberries. Hopefully on Sunday we can work on getting our patio formed up so we can pour concrete soon. Cookie I have not personally been out yet, but people I talk to at work here in Warroad say it is pretty good all over. Blueberry hill is hopping and from what I hear where the big fire went thru last spring is crazy good. I am going to start looking south of Williams myself. I discovered a monster patch a couple years back where I had put 1 of my bear baits. That will be the first stop. I call that bait site blueberry bait. have a good day all.

Ya morning from here too.  It is a rainy Sunday here.  SO I can't mow.  :happy1: We are going to I Falls to look at a boat and then Menards to get me some plywood for my new deer stand.  I did go fishing for awhile last night.  Only out for about 1 1/2 hours but felt great.  Man there is so much current from all  of the rain that has been flowing in that I used a 1 oz jig to get to the bottom.  I did have a couple of bites that may have been little saugers and then caught a 3 lb northern.  That was fun.  He even jumped.  lol   While I was out a big sturgeon jumped in front of the boat.  Sounded like one of the dogs fell in the river.  Buddy was all curious about what the heck was that.  Sammy just looks at me and keeps on napping..   

Well talk to ya all later.

Hope you didn't get too sunburned around the speedo yesterday by the pool General.   :rotflmao:  Well boys it is my 62nd Birthday today.  SO I could actually start drawing out my Social Security....   lol  I won't though.  Think I will wait till 65.  Tempted to retire at 64 but will decide that in the future.  At that time working 1 more year may not seem to bad.  What will I do with all that spare time?????    :rotflmao: :rocker;

Well I bought plywood to build my deer stand to put by my first attempt at a food plot.  Still only 1 doe at the mineral block that I put in my spruce grove by the food plot.  I have been buying one of those that has corn and stuff in it.  $17 and it only lasts about 2 weeks.  Now crows, squirrels, and a big coon are also eating it.  I may have to get one of those mineral rocks so it will last longer.  Hope it still draws critters to it.  The previous regular old mineral block did work pretty good.

Well trying to decide if I should take the day off and putz with the deer blind on the birthday today.  Sounds like a good plan to me.  See ya all later.

Well happy B-Day LPS :happy1: you deserve the day off to get into trouble.  No worries about the sunburne......I don't shave the bikini area ;)

Off to work here in a few.  I had a new sprayer custom built and the guy said it was ready to be picked up so I told him I'd be there tonight.  So I'll probably hit the yard with it to see how it works.

Barry. I use the brown mineral block from a feed store, I smash it in half cause the weigh 50 lbs and make 2 sites, I also take the small chunks and about 3 gallons of water and let those chunks soak and desolve for a day or 2, then I prep a site where the deer travel and take up and large area say 4 ft across, andput the bigger block in the center the after I create a small depression, the dump in the remain mixture, I also use the powederd deer cocain brand, and a small block of that. Ive had great success with that combo.

I put two more pork loins in the brine last night. got aneighbor that will pay anything for the c bacon. gonna prep for the weekend, supoose to be warm all week, then were heading to cookies again!

Your mineral stations sound just like mine.  I normally use block salt but got a number of
bags free this year.  Not corn or food at my stations as this can be considered baiting. 
I'm going to start this years food plots today.  I know it's late but that's the way it goes.

Happy Birthday LPS and many more! Long weekend of car shows, cruising, eating fair food and drinking an occasional libation. Capped off the weekend bopping around Lake Francis with some friends on their pontoon. Had some grilled shrimp on the barbi back at their condo along with some awesome sides and dessert. Looks like hay baling will probably happen this week during the heat so if anyone isn't busy and is looking for something to do, I'll provide the beer.  :happy1:

Busy weekend with the grandkids.  Yesterday I cut the grass before the heat wave they say is coming.  I have a lot of grass to cut and there are days that I wish I had a rider, but still have my self propelled pusher mower.  I've been stung by bees a few times doing this and yesterday I had a real painfull one.  Right behind my ear on my head.  Finished mowing and took a shower.  Noticed that my eye area was a little puffy and I had a huge rash under both arms and in my crotch area.  What the heck I said.  Took some antihistamine's and by 8 pm the rash was all but gone.  I'm thinking it was a reaction from the bee sting.  My wife said it could be a heat rash also, but I told her that I have never had a rash like this ever.  Who knows.  My and wasps don't get along.  good luck.

LOL ya it was a great day.  And the temp stayed in the low 70's which is a big plus.  I lose my energy when it gets too hot and sunny.  Perfect day to putz around yesterday.  Then after I put the tools away it was time for a Manny or three and even a Martini.   Then the ribeye which was great too.  The wife made onions and mushrooms to cover it all.  Darn I should have taken a picture of it.  But then someone may have hurt their neck trying to look at it.  :-)    Back to the grind today.  That's ok I like my job it is just always nice to stay home.  Man the river is still high here and lots of current.  The fishing has been better at this side of the lake and I always wonder if more current from the river attracts more bait fish where it enters the lake.  ???  Well having raisin brand for breakfast and my shot of honey in my first cup of coffee.  I do that every day.  Have a good day all.      Oh ya when the wife went to work yesterday the last thing she said to me was "stay out of trouble".   lol   What a compliment that she still thinks I can get in trouble....

bee sting suck,  I used  to drive for a living, hang my ar on the window, bee fly up my sleeve and down my back and sting while driving 70, not good, you nailed LPS,  reason we haven had a good shiner run last 3 years is no flow, no flow no shiners, no walleyes to follow, no walleyes to follow in the fal, no walleyes to dispers on the south shore bason for winter fishing. if a good flow continues into fall, I believe we'l have great winter fishing again this year.

I spent yesterday at the land with my brother in law and my grandson.  We mowed some plots and sprayed others.  Then just as it got hot, we cleared a some trails.  One in particular was a beast as it had not been cleared or cut for 4 years.  I made the trail years ago but it was on the land I purchase this spring and being it just went through this land to mine, they never cleared it.  It was hot and buggy and for a while I though we wouldn't make it through but somehow we did.  I was beat.

Here is picture it took yesterday of my future help.  I'm hoping my grandson will help with the land work when I get too old to do it.

I stopped at the local shop to get some welding done and my grandson expressed interest in getting a tractor.  This one was cheap but needed some work.

Thought I'd make the morning deadline but alas. Sorry to hear about your bee sting RH. Been stung lots of times and can't say I enjoy it any more than the first time. I am envious of LPS haveing a martini on his birthday. Don't think I have any vermouth so may have to remedy that. Come to think of it, my gin supply is starting to concern me. Several bottle with only and inch or two in the bottom. That does not bode well for the future! Steamy weather on its way. Ish!

Aha the Kelloggs chick arises again.  Well LL probably rises anyhow.  lol  Well we got the AC's in the windows last night.  One in the bedroom and one in the front porch.  Works pretty good.  The wife closed the bedroom door when she got up this morning.  Then she comes back in and wakes me a little later.  It was so cold in there with the door closed I told her we may have to start the pellet stove.  ha ha.   Also last night I put new spark plugs in the 40 hp Honda four stroke.  It has had a little hesitation especially at idle.  That can't be.  I put Seafoam in the gas last week and it still had the hiccup so put the plugs in and alas we are back to smooooth.  Went for a few mile ride last night with the dogs and the wife.  Felt great.  Going to grill pork chops tonight.  Not sure what else we will have with them.

Luckily an angler of my caliber has no problem keeping walleye available.  I was at cabin so much I was going out and catching and keeping one fish per night and eating it.  Counting being at home I had fish for dinner 17 of 20 nights at one point.  The landfill just made me stronger.

Man it's hot outside.  I'm the one that always tells folks that complain about the heat that soon we will be complaining about the cold and the other way around but this is too much for this Northern at the heart boy.  Give me 70's and low 80's and I don't have a problem.  Plus the air conditioner seems to not be working right as well.  Not blowing the cold air just cool air.  Got a guy coming over Sunday to work on it.  Nice to have that fixit plan.  So steaks tonight again and some salad I'm working on that has grape tomatoes, corn, cilantro, Juice from limes, vegie oil,honey,garlic salt and pepper.  Grill will be busy for a few days for sure.  good luck.

Great plan General.  I bet it is cool with the speedo on.   Ya RH I don't like the hear anymore neither.   Low 70's is my comfort zone.  We didn't do anything last night.  Just stayed in the house and took it easy.  Wait!  I clipped the dogs toenails, so I did do something.  lol
I am having my raisin brand too Dotch.  Started on the cereal thing when we had the grandson stay with us.  I ate his leftover Apple Jacks so the wife got me raisin brand now.  Makes for a pretty good breakfast.  I am surprised there are still raisins in every bite....  Construction has come to a grinding halt with the current heat wave.  Hopefully get something done on it this weekend.

I don't know, I guesse hot to me 95 plus was only 92 here. heat index wasn't that bad. I'm having yogurt and breakfast bar, I have to change things up  a bit, sometimes rasin brand crunch, some time eggsand cheese. sometimes a breackfast pizza at the store.

Raisin in every bite just like the commercial.
good morning. Good old mother nature ruined my fishing plans. Its a little choppy out there its fishable but not what I want to deal with. Just came back from the lake shore. Did a little weed whipping around the fire pit so its presentable for Boar this weekend. Decided to spank a few golf balls . just crushed them? last night after work could not hit a drive to save my ass? Goofy game. Hate to say it so lets keep it a secret but the fishing has been horrible for me the last two trips out so now I'm on a mission to find them . Crank baits next time out. Gotta love my salmo hornet, so will see. My go to spot in the summer has been horrible two times in a row? I'm thinking the fish have plenty to eat right now. I have some mowing too do for the township and plan on knocking that out in a bit before the heat hits. Might even mow here all though I mow for the township. I mow at the golf course so the sweety usually mows here HE HE . Plenty to keep me busy here. Doing some trimming over on the river lot to make it a little more open for camping. Nice little spot. The rest of the to do list is to long to mention.  Plan on taking Boar out fishing while he's here. Maybe he will bring me luck? The storm last night dropped a tree top in the yard .I plan on putting boar to work so bring your chain saw buddy.

our cabin got clobbered by a storm last night west of Walker.  Boat lift is shredded and 6 trees down on driveway with other leaners by neighbor told me.  I'm Mr Chainsaw so should be fun.  May up the life insurance and switch the beneficiary to my girl friend before I head up there  :happy1:

Kind of funny but when my dad died in September his neighbor, who actually owns the road into my dads place, became Mr Hard Rear to me about that road which is close to the place I own myself.  I've known the guy 48 years and he's a wing nut and decided to start lecturing me on all things road related.  Veiled threats on hunting etc.  I finally told him to shut up which worked great  :bonk:

I hope he gets up and clears "his" road which we have plowed, put 100's of loads of gravel on over the years, and maintained like we had more than deeded access too.  Pitter patter lets get at 'er!

our cabin got clobbered by a storm last night west of Walker.  Boat lift is shredded and 6 trees down on driveway with other leaners by neighbor told me.  I'm Mr Chainsaw so should be fun.  May up the life insurance and switch the beneficiary to my girl friend before I head up there  :happy1:

Kind of funny but when my dad died in September his neighbor, who actually owns the road into my dads place, became Mr Hard Rear to me about that road which is close to the place I own myself.  I've known the guy 48 years and he's a wing nut and decided to start lecturing me on all things road related.  Veiled threats on hunting etc.  I finally told him to shut up which worked great  :bonk:

I hope he gets up and clears "his" road which we have plowed, put 100's of loads of gravel on over the years, and maintained like we had more than deeded access too.  Pitter patter lets get at 'er!
more campfire wood!!!!!!!!!!!! hope all is well LL!!!!!!! IT MUST BE YOUR CHAEMING PERSONALITY that you get along with the neighbor up there!!!

that smart ass thing of mine has it's plusses and minuses for sure Blueberry Boy.  Had him over for a fish fry a few weeks ago and while eating he bitched at me for keeping 6 crappies we ate for dinner.  Anything anyone else kills is to be ridiculed and judged like he's Aldo Leopold.  You'll appreciate this Smurfomatic, my nephew shot two bucks last year and the neighbor ripped him a new one instead of congratulating him.  "you killed all the bucks".  We don't deer hunt his land even but I guess they could have walked on it at one point which makes them his. 

Oh well I could handle it better but this is more interesting.

Ya know it wasn't bad mowing the windbreak last night with the breeze and no mosquitoes. Not as much breeze today so the air is really heavy. Got done tissue sampling in some corn fields and think we'll just lay low the rest of the day. Hoping that someone doesn't get a bug up their rear about baling hay. Cut late Monday afternoon, can't imagine it's dried much, laying on top of wet ground with high humidity. Couldn't smell it last night so that's usually a clue.

leechlake,
Sorry to hear of the damage.  Did your neighbor just become a wingnut the past few years?  You indicated you knew him for 48 years, has there been some change recently?  A neighbor across the street from me went bat sh!t on his neighbor a year ago.  I still converse with him but there has been a radical change.  I think PTSD as he is a Vietnam Vet.  I try to calm him down when he gets going by he get very agitated and starts shaking.  I ask him if he had any guns and he said no. 

Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: leechlake on July 21, 2016, 05:59:29 PM
he's been like this for forever but he's getting older and has some changes in his life and illness.  It's going to be fine, he's like family and this is just a squabble.  Squabbles are nothing to me.

When we lived in Stillwater we had an old guy living next to us.  86 years old and had always lived in the same house.  Grew up there with his parents.  He was a great neighbor at times and at other times he would slip a little, well maybe a lot.  Sometimes he would be out in his back yard which was adjacent to ours and he would have a stick and a tin garbage can lid and he would walk around and bang the heck out of it.  Talk about loud..  He would also be yelling something but I never could understand what he was saying.  We didn't do anything and the next day he would be talking to us and we would be great friends again.  That may be something we all can look forward to huh??? :bow:  :surrender:

Well I thought the hot weather was over but we still have an 86 looking at us today.  AC time again.  Hope it cools down for the weekend.  TGIF  So sorry for all of the mess you have at your place LL.  Good thing you are chain saw man.  May get in the way of your walleye harvesting program though.  You may want to stock up on spam and tuna...  lol  Number #1 is be careful.

Three days so far without air conditioning and Sunday is the day someone will come to fix it.  I got every fan I have going during the day.  I get up around midnight and open all the windows when it cools down.  Close them up in the am and repeat.   Eating light.  Salad tonight.  Cold beer helps.  Too hot to go fishing.  I've done that in the past.  Sweating all day long and that's not fun.  Wanted to make chili dogs this week but without air it's not happening.  Crabby people, well I deal with them with a smile.  hard to do at times.  But if it's a situation where they get out of hand or in your face, then it's time to confront them and set things straight.  Generally if your always polite, have a good sense of humor, and treat folks like you want to be treated, you run into less problems.  I'm the same way all the time.  good luck.

Now your talking.  A week in Canada is awesome.  I went to Canada for 15 years straight, and to the same place.  White Otter Lake.  Down an old rough road that you needed more than a 4 wheel drive at times but we made it with help of a few beers.  Now I guess it's easy going there.  Went to White Otter through Browns Clearwater Resort as well.   The owner had a tractor at the portage to haul your boat over to White Otter.  Great memories.  Got a hell of a story about an event that happened at the rough road portage but it's a long one.  Involved fist fights with drunken Canadians.  My rougher days.  good luck.

I bet that nudist colony swimming pool is looking better all the time RH! Seriously, I hope all you guys suffering w/o AC or electricity and as a result AC get it back real soon. After we put central air in here, I don't know how we did it before. Sweat a lot I guess. Speaking of sweating, looks like the hay may finally be dry enough to attempt baling this afternoon. Oh goody. This weather takes a lot of the fun out of it. Not that there was a lot of fun in it to begin with.

Lucky in the neighbor department. Older guy down the road has slipped a cog or two but we still get along fine. Messing with water gets the neighbors fired up though. A couple of them have a dispute going right now and I just try to stay out of it. When we deepened the wetland a few years back, it wasn't 10 minutes after we started before I received the 1st phone call. Then a couple minutes later another neighbor was bouncing across his tilled bean ground in a little red car to get a look at what we were up to.

  Had an interesting morning. Started out with my springer and a raccoon having a wrestling match in the back yard at 5:05am. Tripp the wonder dog is headed to vet this afternoon for a shot and his wrestling companion with be riding with in a plastic bag. Didn't think a 12ga. 3" BBB would be that loud at ten minutes after five in the morning when it's dead calm. Hope the neighbors understand. Have a great day.

Good morning guys.  NO AC!  That would not be fun.  Ya I don't eat much when it is so hot neither.  Well last night we were having cocktails and the Dish TV kept going to the no signal page.  Erks the heck out of me.  It has been getting worse and only does it on the cooking and hunting channels.  Well we have a maple tree that is getting real big and I suspected that is the problem.  SO in my boxer shorts I started up the big Husky since LL wasn't here to do it for me.  I went out and cut down the whole tree.  The wife couldn't believe I was doing it.  It was a nice tree too.  Well thank god when I came back in all of the channels work great now.  A shame to lose that tree but hey Vikings season is coming up and good reception of that has priority over that maple tree.  Sure looks bare out in the yard without it but we have a few hundred other trees so we will be ok.

Out at the campground wroth the family.   Not even here for fifteen minutes and the daughter crashes her bike and we are waiting for her to get up now this morning to see if she is ok.   But I'm guessing she'll be going into the local hospital.  It looks like rain here this morning.

Looks like the muggly weather has broke here. Round 1 of thunderstorms has rolled through and looks like the next one is here already. Temp is down 70 so that's better. Hay would not get dry yesterday so that's ruined. They tried it but it banged pretty hard and would barely go through the baler. Gotta go to Ostrander to practice some music for our 40th class reunion this afternoon then entertain some guests tonight. Might be some alcohol involved. Need to check the lamb inventory in the freezer for tomorrow. Suspect there could be grilling in my future. Hope your daughter is OK general.

Good morning.  Going to do more work on the blind today.  Starting to take shape.  Since I am not a real carpenter it takes a little more brain power to engineer the project but all is going well.  I am going to put the plywood on it today.  So yesterday at cocktail time after a shower and relaxing I look out into the pasture and it looks like a bear cub eating horse turds.  I got the binocs and here it is a big dark brown eagle hunched over.  Two crows were just badgering the heck out of it and it was just ignoring them.  It was there for half an hour.  It must have been an immature one from the neighbors nest.  Wish we had an eagle nest on our land.  Pretty cool.  It's beak was dark brown from all of the munching on horse goodies.  Well time for another cup of coffee and then will make bacon and eggs for the missus.  (homemade bacon that is)

Hopefully your daughter is ok from that bike crash General.  Man I wish I was up at my deer stands.  I could be there every day if I could.  With all that wind up in the Duluth area and that section of Minnesota that took a wallop from the recent storm, I bet a chain saw will be needed on our next trip up there.  Maybe even have a chance for one of our stands to be blown away.  I'm waiting for the repair guy to fix our central air.  They said anytime between 8 am to 4 pm.  I went shopping anyway.  Not going to be hostage to having to stay in.  I've been waiting since last Tuesday.  Chicken wings today with rice and fresh kimchi.  Love kimchi.  good luck.

Hey General, while I agree with the HRC avatar it's gross when I'm trying to eat  ;)

On that note two of my dogs have started pooping on the driveway.  Bugged me at first but it's right there to pick up and throw away so I will take it as a positive step towards them going in the toilet soon.  Good dogs.

Our cabin is a complete mess with the trees I guess.  It's south of Bemidji and the whole area just got demolished.  The power company came in and cleared half the road to the utility easement and while that's awesome now the dead trees and all is just harder to get at in the woods just off of the road.  Looks like heck and we're trying to sell the place since we now have my dads place just down the road.  Oh well, just something that has to be handled.

Have a nice day fellas.

I feel for you guys with the storm damage.  When I lived at Ottertail we had a bad storm that wrecked my house both vehicles had damage and my boat did too.  Cost me over $5,000 to hire a backhoe and a crew to help clean up.  So I know what you are going through.  One tree at a time.  Be careful..
I got the walls on the deer blind yesterday.  Now just the roof to go.  I have some old steel siding that I may put on just not sure yet.  I wonder how long the treated plywood will last if I do nothing to it and just let it season.  20 years???  That would be the easiest of course.   ;)
Off to Grand Rapids today.  I am moving the molds for my products to a company in Bemidji.  That will be closer to me and seem to be good guys to work with.  It is a father and son team of injection molders.  We are going to meet at L& M and try to move everything from his pickup to mine with a pallet jack.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.  Then I will bring it to Bemidji.  Nice day for a drive.

Forget the tin.  My uncle used that for a roof and when the sun hit it there was creaking and popping all day long.  You could use regular plywood and put rolled roofing on it.

Morning all, well another week of 90 degree plus weather coming for us but we might cool off to 80 on Friday. Yesterday was the first rain we had in almost two weeks. Rivers and lakes are really low and warm so the fishing hasn't been great. LPS, carefull not to damage those molds they are kind of pricey, I worked in the engineering department of an injection company for 15 years before leaving and buying the coffee shop. We made parts for the automotive, aerospace and military. Make sure they spray the molds with rust preventative before they go outside, the humidity will rust them real quick and have the new company open them up as soon as they get inside or they will sweat and rust also. Try to keep cool and all have a good day.
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: LPS on July 25, 2016, 08:28:20 AM
Will do that Coffee.  They will only be outside for a couple of hours and then the new place wants to open them up when I get there.  I have never actually seen them so I am curious too.  I wish I knew of a fork lift in Grand Rapids that would do the move for us.  I don't know anyone down there though.

Good idea Deadeye.  That sounds easier too.  Maybe I can get some kind of edging to put on the plywood too so the edges don't get wet.

I have battled plenty of stumps.  Caught some rocks that I thought were fish.  Well, the air is on at our house.  It was the part that starts the compressor.  Forgot what it was called.  Part was $40 and labor was $140 but I was covered so my cost was $0.  I think the part was called a cappacitor .  Maybe now I can get those chili dogs made.  Got to buy some tires today and tomorrow I go to my carry class.  I thought it was a conceal carry but Minnesota is a open carry state.

Dont plan on any open carry for me.  Dont' want to advertise it.  Really more when I travel.  Crazy stuff happening out there at times.  good luck.

Morning's over. Going to have to grease the chair if the office pest keeps coming in regularly. Were a lot of farmers in this a.m.. They need to leave me alone so I can go goof off like they do.  ;) More bug scouting on the agenda for the afternoon. Not much out there yet so it makes it go quicker. The frequent rains and warm temps seem to be keeping them off balance. Cukes are starting to produce regularly but are a ways off from producing enough to pickle. Fresh and cold are good too.  :happy1:

Sure glad to have air on in the house.  Finished my carry permit class today.  Really interesting and learned a lot.  Got a good pattern on the range also.  Haven't shot the 380 since deer camp.  Nice little handgun for  carry.  Don't think I could conceal my 357 mag.    Had some women there as well.  Almost half of the 30 or so who came today were women.  Good for them.  Few had problems with their guns, but the instructers  were right there and helped them out. 

Man I have problems with them damn hornets lately.  Around my fire pit I nailed one nest.  Then as I walked around to the other side, there was another one.  So I got some more spray and got that nest.  Then I noticed there was one right in the middle.  Well It's time to burn stuff on that pit.  Those things have the worst stings.  good luck.

Sounds like people are ready for some cool weather to improve our attitudes.  I am.  Have fun in Canada you guys.  About 20 years ago two friends of mine whe really didn't do much fishing decided to go to Canada fishing.  They went on the opening weekend of duck hunting and were a little mad I wouldn't go with them.  They went just north of Winnipeg.  The guide they were with was a good guy and they had fun.  They called me one day and one of them caught a walleye that was just shy of 10 lbs.  That was a monster to us.  Then the other buddy caught one a hair over 10 lbs.  They loved rubbing it in to me too. lol  Well they left the walleyes with this guide and paid him for having them mounted.  He was going to mail them when they were done.  They never heard from the guy again.  He kept their money, wasn't such a good guy after all. 

Going to be about 75 here today so that is a plus.  I heard on the radio that Big Stone Co. has flood warnings due to all of the rain and it is getting rain now.  I have always liked that area.  I told the wife that if we ever move south to get closer to our families that I would want a few acres on Lake Traverse. 

Well time to go and RH don't let those wasps get you, they can hurt.  We haven't had any for awhile.  Seems like they come later here.

Yup boar, mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. Odd however when the shoe's on the other foot, it's supposed to be no big deal. For example, the wife proudly proclaimed when she got home that last night she'd got some sweetcorn at work. Sweet I thought as I hadn't sampled any yet this season. I had about a 2 hour bomb session with the tiller in the garden after chores so I got in the house about 8:30. I was wringing wet from my slaving away. Asked her if she'd eaten and she said she'd snacked but there was the sweetcorn...hint..hint. In the meantime, she'd been sitting on her butt, watching some Hallmark BS, doing sodaQ puzzles or whatever that nonsense is and yapping and texting on her cell phone. Don't husk the sweetcorn and pull yourself away from your cell phone and a precious repeat of some dumb chick flick for 5 minutes, noooooo! When I asked where the sweetcorn was and she said in the garage, the absolute hottest place it could've been kept. I was pi$$ed so grabbed the sweetcorn and went outside to husk it. When I opened the bag it smelled like silage. The top 5 or 6 ears were OK but on what was underneath, the husks were dried up and when husked it was already denting. It looked like it had been kept in a hot car all day and if I had to guess, probably had been. The ears I did manage to salvage were absolutely tasteless. Not sure the sheep will even eat it. Grrrrrrrrr!

You guys who are going to Canada, best of luck on the fishing. Wish I was going there now. My trips to Atikokan are slated for the fall. Likely one mid-September before I do unspeakable things to some of my customers and employees. The last trip's in late October to early November to help my buddy winterize his cabin and play with some of the natives.

Yup boar, mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. Odd however when the shoe's on the other foot, it's supposed to be no big deal. For example, the wife proudly proclaimed when she got home that last night she'd got some sweetcorn at work. Sweet I thought as I hadn't sampled any yet this season. I had about a 2 hour bomb session with the tiller in the garden after chores so I got in the house about 8:30. I was wringing wet from my slaving away. Asked her if she'd eaten and she said she'd snacked but there was the sweetcorn...hint..hint.

Not sure what you are making HD but those are two of my favorite ingredients.  I took some pork sausage awhile back and just added my own breakfast seasonings.  I love the stuff.  Almost gone.  Will have to make another batch.  Put it in 1/2 lb pkgs.  All of this Canada talk is getting to me.  Sounds like fun.

While the cats are away the mice will play! Wait, we're all mice. Never mind. Have fun on your fishing extravaganza fellers! More rain yesterday out of nowhere. Only .15" in town but about 2 miles east it dumped and inch. Over an inch at the offsite pasture and .85" at the ranch. Thought I'd be mowing lawn last night but after picking a few cukes wound up calming my anxiety with a few GT's instead. Distinct possibility it may rain some more this afternoon. In which case I may have to get out the muddler and some Hendricks tonight! Wheeeee!  :happy1:

When we first moved up here about 11 years ago we decided to go for a drive into Canada.  When we went by customs they had a small mountain of potatoes piled up.  We thought they were selling spuds to vacationers.  lolol  Well they were confiscating them.    Beautiful morning here.  Tonight we are going to cut up some more branches off the big maple tree I cut down so our Dish works.  AND thank you know what that it did make a heck of a difference or the wife would be mad.  So we will have a nice fire and probably have some Highwaymen I heart radio going too.  May be a cocktail involved I imagine too.  TGIF.

I rarely get a cold or a flu.  Maybe once a year.  Well I got it three days ago and finally got over it.  That first day really sucked with the coughing.  Make's a chest sore.  Lot's of meds out there but I went with my old standby.  A very good brandy and honey.  That's it.  Got me a coffee cup and filled it up about 2/3 with that good brandy.  Then put some honey in the cup and nuked it till hot.  stirred it up good.  You can tell if it's good brandy when you put that cup up to your nose and take a good sniff.  That one sniff clears your nose right now.  Go to bed and sip till empty.  Very nice sleep, believe me.  ;Works every time.  Waiting till tomorrow to cut that grass that looks pretty high.  I will burn my fire pit real good also so none of those hornets come back.  I think I got them all.  Think.  good luck.

Gotta love good tincture! Hope you're feeling better RH. Gotta get cleaned up and off to FF. Then a relaxing afternoon of listening to tunes while lawn mowing. The Agco-Allis really barks so gotta wear my hearing protection. Keep the music ranked loud enough so you can't hear it! Should drop the oil afterwards so while it takes a licking, it will keep on ticking. Got a cardinal that keeps flying at the windows. Apparently sees his reflection and must be defending his territory. I thought the windows should be dirty enough, they wouldn't bother.

Had a great weekend of doing projects.  Even went for a boat ride but  didn't fish.  We were the only ones on the river.  My deer stand is coming right along and the turnips and radishs are about 3" tall.  i checked the trail cam and instead of the one doe there are now a couple of does and 3 different fawns too.  The young buck that I have been hoping to draw in for a crossbow kill got run over by my neighbors house the other day.  Darn....  Well I hope these does draw in some other bucks.  It is getting hot out already and may have some rough weather later in the afternoon.  Have a good one all.

I almost forgot here is the deer stand in progress.  I was given some aluminum siding so am putting that on the stand now.  I hate to paint it now.  I hope the deer like a gray bldg in the trees.  I will see how if works and paint it next year if I have to.  I would think they will get used to it.

I believe the paint would be for you not the deer.  They will notice it.  You can hang a small camo camera in an out of the way place and they still walk up and check it out so I'm quite sure they will see your stand.

Very true about the color.  I agree they know it is there whatever color it is.  I have seen deer walk right past my truck while I was sitting in my camo portable blind and wished I would have just sat in my truck..   The windows are just right so I can use my crossbow or a gun.  Now I have to put up some shelves and get some carpet for inside.  I have paths mowed from my house to where the blind will be sitting already.  It will be about 150 yards from my house.  Can't see the house though through all of the trees.

Post by: Reinhard on August 02, 2016, 03:02:43 PM
Ya Dotch,  I try not to complain about the heat and the dewpoint because winter is up ahead.  Funny thing is that I don't complain much about the cold as I do the heat.  One reason is that ice fishing is something I favor over open water by a little bit.  I like open water early and in the fall.  I used to get these stares when I told folks that I will we have a couple of weeks of below zero nights to get safe ice early.  Still wish that.  Once the pre-season Viking games start I feel fall coming quickly.  I've been cutting dead branches of my Oak trees today.  Damn chainsaw won't work, so I'll have to cut the large branches in pieces when I get it running.  I used a long pole saw to get up there to cut them down.  Always something to do around the house.  good luck.

Ya I am looking forward to fall too.  The air smells nice then and I seem to have more energy when it cools down.  Hard to get motivated after work when it is so hot.  Also more fun to cook when the house is not so hot too.  Saw a coyote on my way home from work.  Running as fast as he could when he crossed the road. Also now we have two immature eagles eating horse apples in out pasture.  Then they just sit in a dead tree along the edge.  Pretty sight.

Post by: deadeye on August 03, 2016, 09:25:02 AM
I hear you there LPS.  July and August are just not made for working in the woods.  Along with the heat you have to contend with the bugs and by bugs I mean, deer Flies.  They are a killer in the woods.  I will take a break from the hunting land and wait until late August to start the fall prep of the hunting land.  Clearing deadfalls and mowing trails will come first followed by checking and repairing stands.

Morning all. I agree with the lack of ambition when it is hot out. I am like RH, I prefer to ice fish over boat fishing. But I like all fishing. Probably won't be any bear hunting for me this year unless I can score 1 of the 17 surplus tags for area 12. Not holding my breath. It has been a busy start to the week this week at work. Seems like everyone wants everything yesterday. Have a good day everybody!

It is tough to get motivated on days like today. AC spoils a guy and makes it easier not to get 'er done. Picked cukes, did garden weeding and spraying last night until I decided I'd had enough of the mosquitoes. Was drenched so the AC was definitely welcome. Saw these guys  in the yard as I was driving up. We've had ducks, geese,pheasants and Huns but this makes the first sandhill cranes we've seen. Apparently Jr. who could not fly yet somehow managed to get there so Mom and Dad kept him/her under their supervision. They sure can get up quickly as I'd hoped I could get a quick photo face to face. Oh well, it was still cool to see and their call remains one of the most unique I've ever heard. Eventually Jr. walked down the neighbor's driveway and across the road to the hay field where the others were calling.

Looks like Glenn survived the storm! So far we've missed out on the first wave this a.m. but looks like the second shot should get here some time around noon-ish or shortly thereafter. Cranes were back in the neighbor's hay field this a.m., making racket and scaring the sheep in the pasture. They moved across the road into a bigger hay field. Not sure what they're finding to eat but it could be frogs, night crawlers or insects. Fun to watch them.  :coffee:

It is tough to get motivated on days like today. AC spoils a guy and makes it easier not to get 'er done. Picked cukes, did garden weeding and spraying last night until I decided I'd had enough of the mosquitoes. Was drenched so the AC was definitely welcome. Saw these guys  in the yard as I was driving up. We've had ducks, geese,pheasants and Huns but this makes the first sandhill cranes we've seen. Apparently Jr. who could not fly yet somehow managed to get there so Mom and Dad kept him/her under their supervision. They sure can get up quickly as I'd hoped I could get a quick photo face to face. Oh well, it was still cool to see and their call remains one of the most unique I've ever heard. Eventually Jr. walked down the neighbor's driveway and across the road to the hay field where the others were calling.
Kool Pics EH! I got a few from 100 yards away wit long lenses.From 10-14 years ago!!! Had to drive north 100 miles to get em, around Wadena area.I believe I know yer area from the post goin out on a pontoon with friends.Makes me smile that they are that far south now!

The sandhill's are way cool. There were 7 of them bopping around that hay field a couple hours ago. Appears to be a good place for the young ones to get their wings figured out. They started showing up about maybe 10 years ago. Apparently they have taken a shine to some of the smaller restored wetlands such as ours. Still makes me laugh to visualize them walking around the yard like they were.

Now we have to watch ourselves again.  The General is back.  So that must be the designated driver with you.

That is my dad and my son.  No need for a designated driver as the Canadians won't let you have a beer on the boat.  It's like they don't want me there.  Glad to see everyone is still doing well and Boar that is Private Sir to you.

Hey fellas!  Long time. 

Had my first real guiding gig the past three days.  Four guys from KC MO.  Worked my butt off.  They caught some beautiful walleyes and had a blast.  All four caught 26-28 inchers and it's fun to see how excited they got.  Its just something I wanted to try, it was really fun.  Of course the old guide here caught the biggest a great fighting 29.5 incher.  I can't post the photo from my phone says "you can not upload that type of file only allowed extension are ..."

I've caught quite a few 28-30 inchers and this one I caught crappie fishing on 3 pound test.  I couldn't get him off of the bottom, great fighting fish.  Great experience.

Post by: LPS on August 07, 2016, 04:23:18 PM
Man LL that's some good fishing.  Congrats.  We just got back from camping at Lasalle Rec Area south of Bemidji.  Had a good time.  Only two hours from home too.  Well look at the trail cam pics I posted.  Looks like a mountain lion to me?????   Still not done with the deer stand.  Have to get back on that project.  As of last night the local doe is still around so no critters got her anyhow.  Saw a couple of fawns nibbling at the crops a few days ago.

Post by: Reinhard on August 08, 2016, 08:12:35 AM
You guy's catching fish and drinking adult beverages make me jealous.  I was busy at our church picnic.  No fish and no adult beverages.  Hot day with very little wind.  it was out at Lake Rebecca Park.  Ton's of people there and all the parking spots were full, including the grassy area.  Good food out there.  Mexican and Russian food stands.  I got me some kabobs and fried rice from t he Russian stand.  Very good.  Grandkids had a great time out there.  Animal petting area, pony riding, and plenty of those inflatables to jump and slide on.  LPS, there are mountain lions in Minnesota.  Someone hit one with a car not too long ago in the Ely area. 

I was up by the Isabella/Finland area a few years ago camping by myself.  Slept in back of the truck the whole time, since I was moving from lake to lake.  One night it was dead calm.  Woke up around 3 am, when mother nature called [had a few beers in the daytime].  Got back in the back of the truck where I had a mattress and sleeping bag.  I laid there for awhile looking at the stars through the windows and I heard this very loud roar.  Cat type roar.  Maybe a mountain lion, who knows.  Could have been a Lynx or bobcat also but it sounded like it came from a large cat.  good luck.

They are pretty cool animals.  There have been a few spotted up here every now and then too.  In Warroad they closed a walking trail last year due to so many sightings of a female and cubs.

They are nice to have around.  Here are a couple strolling by a camera.  This pair has been around all spring and summer.  They did have a young one but something must have killed it because it's not around anymore.  Tough life in the wild.

Tough life for sure.  We have several broods of mallards that patrol our beach.  One mom is very territorial and there was a duckling in her area without a mother. 

The territorial duck attacked and killed the duckling (as our grand daughters watched).

Killer duck and her single offspring are still patrolling the beach.

Wow Del I didn't know ducks got so mean.  My brothers neighbor saw a northern take a baby loon last summer.  Happened right in front of him.  What easy targets they are.  We had 1/2" of rain last night.  Lot's of farmers have their rye grass cut and are combining so I don't think they want rain now.  Looks like we have more chances of rain for a few days too.  Hope we don't get too much.  Well have a great day all.

I hear you RH.  This is going to be my son's first dog kind of.  We got our current GSP when my daughter was born 11 years ago and son born 9 years ago.  So he doesn't remember much about the dog being a pup.  Don't get me wrong the boy loves that dog but this one is going to be special.  He is watching training videos and has a plan put together.  I'm looking forward to the time we will be spending together both training and in the field.

That's cool to hear G, bet Mason is chomping at the bit with anticipation.

Raining cats and dogs here, hopefully drops the humidity down a bit. I can handle hot working in a foundry, just not the humidity. Been pet sitting for my daugher & son in law, who are out in Colorado hiking. Their dog and cat must only like it at their house, cause they are terrorising mine. Running on little sleep with the howling. But, it is what it is......

Hope you all have a great day!

I see my pike did not make the cut. Had to try. I now have a new tape measure in the boat. I did loose one screwdriver out of the boat but have another. phone is charged,  so maybe I can get another big fish. Only time will tell. Doing ribs on the grill tomorrow and sister doing home made spaghetti tonight. Should be a fun weekend. Every one be safe and enjoy the weekend

Good morning gents. A nice morning today. I really, really hope it stays nice today. Planning to pour cement after work today. Doing our patio on the front of our house. As for the weekend not sure what the plan is. May run down to the hunting land and check things out there. Maybe spray round up on the food plots so we can get them planted in a couple of weeks. Also see if it has dried up any down there. I might even do a little scouting for bear since it is no quota down there. Then I can go raid Boar's freezer where he is storing all my little debbies. ;) :happy1: Have a good day all!!!

Ya, it still sounds funny to me to say head down to the hunting shack. But when we already live on the Canadian border, that is the direction we head. Our hunting land is down by Skime, about 30 miles SE of Roseau. I hear ya Boar, Even if I would have gotten a surplus tag I wasn't going to even start baiting until labor day weekend. Summer goes to fast the way it is and it seems like this one has been really short for some reason.

Ya as I said earlier I didn't get drawn for bear and some times it is almost a relief.  We really like doing it but it does take a lot of time.  Time seems to be the thing I have less of as I get older.  Must just take longer to get things done.

Well at least I didn't build a boat that I couldn't get out of the shed.  However, I did build a nook that we couldn't get down the steps and around a corner.  We took the heavy thing out and cut it in two and then hauled it back down.  I probably should have made it in two parts to begin with.  I cut it where it's simple to join again.  No loss of structural integrity.

Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: LPS on August 16, 2016, 07:16:04 AM
We wanted to go see the Tall Ships.  I checked on motel rooms about 4 months ago.  Unreal how the prices of the rooms goes up for this event.  I think they were over $300 per night and you had to take at least 2 nights.  Then $100 per person to board a ship and check it out.  Even rooms in Two Harbors were that much and then having to drive to Duluth and find a parking spot just sounded like too much of a challenge for me.  Sure would have been fun to see them though.

Morning all, on our yearly September trip to vermilion we usually stay in superior for the night and we never had a problem getting a room but this year I had to call four hotels before I found a room and it's the super 8 for $170a night after taxes. The only good thing is it's right behind gronks so after a burger and some drinks we can roll right into our room. It's another 90 degree plus day here. After work will be heading down the river to help find two fishermen that went missing on Sunday, family said they usually wear hip waiters in the river so it doesn't look good for them. Yinz all have a good day and keep cool

Better get out of town tomorrow or you could be trapped for the duration.... Or maybe you could do something about the pilots union that chased off that Viking Ship....  9k per day?  Holy Carp. 

Then they had the cojones to put out a letter saying 400k for the trip was inflated it would only have been 250k....    Bite me, pilot's union.   And the coast guard and congress too.  Nice non tariff barier, but you can't keep the freaking invasives out.  Took 20 years or more to get the salties to flush their bilge at sea....

Beautiful day here.  Going to be a great weekend too.  60's for the highs.  I can take that.  Seems like early fall and I like it.  I got 2 big T-Bones for the grill either tonight or tomorrow night.  We will see how hard the wife makes me work at home tonight.   ;)  We are going to actually going to catch  up on some projects that I have been procrastinating for too long.  Then hopefully we can go sit in the new deer blind and watch some deer in the food plot.  May even have a cocktail or two out there since we aren't really hunting, just watching.  Will let you know how it all plays out.

I threw a little fertilizer on the grass this evening so I'm guessing the rain will stop.  I too am looking forward to the cool weekend.  I tried to get out to check my trail cam tonight but there was to much water to get to it.  No real plans this weekend.

Yup had some outside projects to do and woke up to rain here to.  Coming down hard now.  A beautiful rain if it was wanted.  lol    Supposed to rain until 1:00.  I brought home a hunk of carpet to put in the deer blind today. I wanted to bring it out in the woods today.  yup I just ran out and got the rained on carpet out of the truck and put it in the garage.  Darn it was heavy. (wet)  Well I guess I will be making Ice Rigs today.

Rain again down here is soggy bottoms. Picked up another 1" yday. We're swamped down here; it just won't quit. Lotsa flooded basements and running sump pumps. Sure glad I put a pump and tiling in. Mines' been belching water out too. Did get out on Thursday, which was killer hume and heat. Headed south for the day in the Lanesboro /Preston area. it the back roads and antique shops. Stopped along the way in Whalen at the locally famous Aroma Pie Shop for a bite. Did some scenery pics and then ended up at the Branding Iron in Preston for a great dinner. Left there and ten minutes later north of there we ran smack into that huge storm that creamed Preston that nite. Had to pull off the road it was so bad. Looks like a cool down finally, maybe clearing tomorrow. I can handle that. Enjoy the weeknd, guys.

Yes some nice pics Reb.  I guess I was wrong we got I nice little rain to work the fertilizer in.  I'm going to work on cleaning up the mower, sharpening blades, and greasing it up.  Then I'm going to bring in the ranger and clean it up and give it a shot of grease.  If plans don't come up for this evening I'm going to fire Nagatha 2 up for some steak on the grill.

I finally got the new deer blind out in the woods on Sat.  We sat in it for awhile on Sun. but didn't see anything.  Will have to let it sit for awhile and let the deer get used to it.  It is real comfy.  Also finally got the big maple tree that was blocking my Dish reception cleaned up.  Got out the wood splitter that I made out of my snow blower and split and piled everything up for winter firewood in the garage/shop.  Feel good about it.  Well back to work for a few days.

Speaking of fish, be a good morning to go looking for some. Slight breeze, just getting light out, half-moon up high in the sky, and 61* degrees....looking like a nice one! Think I'll rustle up some bacon and eggs after coffee. Enjoy the day, guys!
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!

Man bacon and eggs sounds great.  I am having Capn Crunch.  First time in maybe 20 years.  Tastes great...  Nice morning here too.  I looked yesterday and we are losing 20 minutes at evening and 12 minutes in the morning by Sept 1.  Unreal.  I feel fall fishing getting closer.  One last hot day today and then cooler weather too.

AND one more thing I wanted to bring up this morning.  I picked a wild parsnip plant at my place on Sunday.  I put a garbage bag over it and then pull it with gloves on.  I can then throw it away without touching it.  BAD STUFF...  I picked two of them about 4 years ago in close to the same area.  Unlike poison ivy which is an allergic reaction which some people are more prone to get it than others, wild parsnip effects everyone!!!!   Look it up and keep an eye out for it.  Looks a lot like dill with different leaves.

Can I have it? I'd like to rub it in my neighbors face....the one who sprayed weed killer on the side of his house, killing my tomato plants that were six feet away, yet has weeds in back that look like trees, actually taller than his deck. Says "they're not weeds, and the wife likes them".  :banghead:

I had little problem doing both last weekend.  Although the crappies were not as easy to catch or as plentiful as in spring, they still could be caught in decent numbers.

Yeah I'm guessing that would take about 10 union employees.  One to hold the fish, one to hold the camera, one to hold the ruler, one to hold the screwdriver, and 6 to supervise (hold up shovels).  Plus if one person is not there the operation is shut down until a fill in arrives. ;)

One humid, still,  soggy morning here. Some good T-storms last nite brought another inch of rain to us down here in swampland. Looks like highs in the low 70's for a week or so...in other words, for me, just right.  The 'mater's sure are liking it. I've been giving away bags of sweet 100's, picking a small basket full every day off the one plant I have. Think when this cawfee pot is empty, I just might whip up a ham, cheddar, and green pepper omelet.  Picked up some purple clover honey the other day, some toast with that might fill out the bill....have a good day, guys.

Man Rebs I wish I was close enough to stop over for breakfast.  It is apple jacks for me today.  Humid as heck here.  Still gonna get to 77 here.  Not quite cool enough for me.  Sure darker in the mornings now. 

Not to be a morning downer but what the hell is it with these guys sexually assaulting little kids and killing them.  I don't see how they can even think sex in those situations.  Absolutely sick.  What a terrible thing those families are going through.  That is two of them in the last few days.  Think good thoughts for them.

RH, put in one of the curved shower curtain bars...much nicer than the straight ones. Still use any shower curtain ya want, but gives you more room to move about. I did that when I remodeled my bathroom.

(my wife has had two knees done)

Hand held shower head with hose
Chair for in shower
Grab handles, We used the suction cup type.
Nonslip mat for bottom od tub or stall

Toilet riser if not comfort height already
Grab handle by toilet

And we found a rocking  chair good for helping get range of motion back.

Suns up in a slightly overcast sky. Looks like it's gonna be a nice one, so said the cardinal that woke me up at 5:20 am. I notice on cloudy and foggy days, the crows are CAWCAWCAWCAW in the morning, but when it's clear and getting light out, the songbirds are at it.  Interesting. After cawfee's done, I think some scrambled eggs with smoked ham mixed in and some maple sausages are in order. Then I'm going to finally get to making the fixin's for those tacos and burro toes I bypassed last nite.  Enjoy the day, guys..... ;)

Ya good morning guys.  it was 52 at our house this morning.  66 for a high today.  Cool and windy.  Feels great.  Inside cooking weather.  May have to make a hotdish after work.  Our tomatoes are just starting to get color to them.  Cukes aren't counting up too fast neither.  Eating them all in salads.  There will be no pickle making this year.  I think we have about a dozen jars yet so I will make it through the year I think.  Have to do some store bought ones in between.  Just had a braunsweiger sandwich.  I haven't had one in a while.  I like mayo and sliced homemade dill pickles on them.  Awesome combo. 

I am curious to see picks of Rebs and the neighbor lady in action but then again it could really ruin what so far is a great day........   It brings back memories of when I used to work at a mink ranch when I was a kid.  Boy do they go at it.....  :rotflmao: :Clap:

Good morning all, well we had some storms roll through last night around midnight and no power at the shop.  Been here since 4 am  sitting in the dark having to tell customers sorry but no coffee this morning. No coffee makes homer angry  :doah:. They don't expect to have it restored until 9:00 this morning  :bs:. I guess those Union guys need their beauty rest before a hard day of standing around all day, just kidding Glenn  :happy1:.

My cuz said to heck with it last year, sold his house in the classy section of St. Paul, and bought a little place with 40 acres outside of Pine City. Built a chicken coop, bought a little tractor, planted a huge garden, and then a bear smashed the coop, ate the chickens, and dug up his garden. He's baiting right now, and has his artillery ready for the season. (He has a LOT of kick-azz guns, big deer hunter) Maybe you could swing by and help him shoot da bear.  ;)

I'm here to Rebs.  Went to Bemidji and got the wifes new tires mounted yesterday.  Went awesome.  Did the Wally World thing for the first time.  Ordered the tires on Wally site and had them delivered to the store.  Got an oil change and the tires put on.  Goodyear Eagles.  They ranged from 158-185 everywhere else.  Got them for $104 and free shipping to store.  Cost $12 ea to mount and balance.  Get lifetime rotation with that.  As long as they are on the same car.  Now we are going to get an oil change there ($25) when shopping and get free rotation.  Heck of a deal and they did a great job too. 

Also went to the new meat market (beef and pork not women) and checked it out.  Great place.  Got some of their sausages and some steaks and bulk breakfast sausage.  Will try that with eggs after another cup or two of mud.  The place is called Stittsworth Meats.  The also have Louisiana Pellet grills and sauces and rubs too.  The place smells great.  I was probably drooling while I was there. Will go back for sure.  Thought of RH and you guys when I was there. 

Going to work on the lawn mower today.  I put new steering gears on it but didn't do the bushings.  Need to do that too I guess.  Then VIKES at noon today.   :happy1: :happy1:  Can't wait for that but it does take a chunk out of the day.  I am putting a pork loin roast wrapped in bacon on the Daniel Boone while that is on.  Hope it turns out to be good sandwich material for the week..

A friend of mine's son is bear baiting for the first time.  The dad has shot a bear or two but not for years.  I have a barrel of Boar's Private Reserve Bear Bouya in a barrel that I gave him to use and told him to get a Super Shooter to shoot the oil into the trees.  He has a huge bear coming in on one of his baits.  He cleans it up every day.  I will try to post the pics for you.  Thanks Boar.

We got just shy of 2" of rain last night.  Man it thundered loud too.  Kind of nice but we don't need any more rain for quite awhile.

I love those gyros Reb.  I hope you had one for me.  No idea what the other Greek stuff you mentioned was. 

Well another Monday.  They sure are going fast.  Already going to be Sept this week.  Unreal.  Thanks for posting those bear pics Boar.  I found 4 bags of donuts in my deep freeze.  My buddy is going to pick them up today along with some candy I have.  Sure hope he gets a shot at that bear.

Took them tubing and swimming. We sure missed them when they went home on Sunday. Looking forward seeing some bear pictures from the fellow bear hunters. I don't get to hunt this year. Probably for the better. May actually get something done around the house yet this fall. Have a good day.

New all time record for me. We saw 11 cop cars between Rochester and St Paul on highway 52.  Most of them had someone pulled over.   Been driving that road for darn near 50 years, and this is most by far.
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Reinhard on September 01, 2016, 07:01:25 AM
I see that once in awhile also on 35 going north.  Not many times but it happens Del.  The thing about driving the same places for 50 years or many years is seeing the changes over time.  Up north where I hunt for example, they planted small pines after logging.  Now they are full grown mature pines.  Catch myself telling those who drive with me, Ya I remember when they were just a foot tall.  Talk about repeating yourself. 

Well my wife went in for knee replacement on Tuesday.  Had the operation that day.  Still there.  Supposed to come home today but she was throwing up this morning.  Was supposed to go there to watch a therapy session but she told me to hold off until she knows what's next.  Went there yesterday to visit.  Had flowers delivered.  They were from our church.  Very nice of them.  Then two pastors came.  We all prayed and also talked hunting and cooking.  Those pastors do great work on their own time.  Today I'm going to put the elevated toilet seat on the bathroom.  Took the doors off of the bath area and replaced them with a shower curtain.  Easier for my wife to get in and out.  Have a great day.  good l uck.

I think I'm back to fully recovered however I have not had a beer since last Saturday.   I cleaned out the shed yesterday and I'm going to deliver the bar to the person who won it this evening.  Tomorrow we will be getting the camper ready to head out for one last weekend.  Nagatha 2 has been neglected as of late so I'll have to figure out something for her to do this weekend.
it was that much fun huh!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!

You have no idea  :happy1:

I ALMOST decided to quit drinking.  But the neighbor came over and we loaded up the crapper and bar to bring them back to their owners and drank a few beers when we got back to my place and boy did they taste great.  So I'm back off the wagon.

Yes RH I hope everything goes well for you and the young lady.

Ya I have almost quit drinking a few times after over indulging too General.  I failed to quit each time.  I did succeed in quitting smoking cigs back in 1997.  THAT was a good thing to quit. 

Well bad news you guys...  I may not be on here for long.  Seems I may be charged by a judge if I don't make a phone call to the IRS in the next day or two.  Ya I got this phone call threatening me and I am pretty scared.  It may already be too late.  I probably should have made the phone call immediately but it was kind of hard to understand what the guy was saying to me.   :bonk:  Wish me luck.

Well Kaper"prick" sat out again.  I sure hope he gets blackballed from the league.  His is such a dumbass.

TGIF...  Man the week went fast till yesterday.  Now I can't wait to get today done.  Well I will be driving semi today and will be able to listen to KFAN and hear all of the football news.  And unfortunately the baseball news.  Not a big Twins fan but love the Vikes and Gophs.  We just became Goph fans a couple of years ago.  My brorthers and a good friend of mine are Twins fans and have been trying for years to get me interested.  Man it is hard to get interested in them...  I will keep on thinking about it..    :bow: 

So see ya all later and have a great weekend....

Today, we'll be taking the little boat out with hopes to catch a shore lunch. This afternoon, I will finally have time to pull the big boat out of the barn to check the 90hp out. Tonight we'll be putting out decoys for tomorrow's hunt.

Bummer boar. I'm in hay baling mode. Small squares today. The fastest way to get a teen-aged male to suddenly disappear around here is to say the words "bale hay". Getting too old for this crap.
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!

I hear ya about the bailing hay Dotch. Between mama and me, we get our hay bailed cause as soon as I  fire up the tractor, the homestead becomes a ghost town....
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Dotch on September 03, 2016, 12:45:37 PM
 :happy1: Ain't that the truth HD?

I'm working with the neighbors on this project. They've still got a couple of those New Holland doo hickey's that pick up the bales after the baler lays them on the ground on their side. Their Dad is in his late 70's and has been in some poor health lately or he'd be out there grinding away, running the haybine, raking, and running the baler. Trading some labor for baling, etc., by standing in for him. Bad news is the sidewalls in my barn aren't high enough so they can just back those stack wagons in, flip them up and leave the  hay pre-stacked like they were intended to do. So we wind up dumping them in a pile outside the door, tossing 7 in my skidloader bucket, running them inside and stacking them. No conveyor so we end up handling them several times. Already have enough round bales to make it through the winter and beyond. Too bad I still need small squares for the lambing pens and smaller groups of animals. Sounds like the boys will help me toss 'em in the barn today. Guessing there will be 3 or 4 wagons worth. They hold about 67 bales apiece.   
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: HD on September 03, 2016, 01:37:15 PM
Yup, I  don’t have a thrower on my square bailer, so it all has to be picked and stacked by hand. This year, a guy bought the hay before it was even cut. He left his wagons here, so we just stacked it on his. That way we didn't have to handle it twice. (Which was kinda nice for a change)
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: delcecchi on September 03, 2016, 04:50:38 PM
I haven't baled hay since I was in high school...  Uncle had a farm by Hawkins wisconsin and ma made us all go help with baling.   Did loose hay when I was a little kid, wagon pulled by horses with a hay loader behind the wagon.   

Then got modern with bales but put them in the hayloft with the old fork deal from the loose hay days.  Finally moved up to a bale elevator.   

Ancestors didn't do a very good job of picking land back in the day.  Some con man ripped them off. 
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Dotch on September 04, 2016, 11:10:13 AM
Gee del! You really ARE old!...lol. How a machine pulled behind the rack managed to walk the hay up to the top then dump it on the rack was an engineering marvel. Was a lot of work for the the guy stacking it but it sure had to beat the hell out of tossing haycocks from the ground onto the rack with a pitchfork. Never had the pleasure of putting up loose hay for real although we used to put up some loose grass hay for the top of the baled hay stacks we'd make in the field sometimes. Actually worked pretty well especially if it didn't rain a lot afterwards. I did get to shock corn one fall when we had an early frost though. Running the old IH binder with the bundle carrier was kinda fun. Shocking the corn itself? Not so much.

Got about 40% of the way through the haying project yesterday. The hay on the field we baled late afternoon was only marginally dry so we wound up using some inoculant on it. Checked the stack in the barn this a.m. and so far so good. Not heating or anything. Smells absolutely fantastic. Think I'll just have them roll up a few more round bales on the last field this afternoon and call it good. That field was wetter but it's windy and warm today so it should be nice and dry by late afternoon. It's Sunday though and they really don't want to work any more than they have to. Can't blame them. They chopped the hay off mine for second cutting as rain was imminent so they owe me some bales. They still have about 30 acres of their own to cut yet so I can get a few more small squares off of that hopefully. We'll work something out.

Morning gents,  after cutting up two trees and yanking off the top of another with the truck cut and stacked among lots of other chores we decided to head home a day early from the cabin.lots to do before the wife and I head for the west coast soon , twenty years of marriage goes by pretty quick.  It's looking like I might have a weekend or 2 open in the next few weeks dotch if you need a hand stacking hay or whatever needs to be done. Most of the meat is froze so looks like it's Swedish meatballs over noodles with perhaps some sort of rosemary bread she says....think I'll sit this cooking of dinner out...
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: delcecchi on September 04, 2016, 04:02:47 PM
I was young enough in those days to ride on top of the stack, but not to have to do anything constructive.   That came later, after my uncle bought a baler, not one of the sissy ones with pto, but one that just got pulled by the tractor and had a Wisconsin engine on it to run it.   So haying was a multi pass deal.   Cut it with the sickle bar.  Rake it.   Rake it again to turn it over.  bale it.   Go pick up the bales with a wagon and put in barn.

Of course in that part of the country, being not so prosperous, all the equipment was a ways behind.   
I seem to remember the tractor being a cockshutt, before they moved up to a Fordson.

Post by: Dotch on September 04, 2016, 11:18:05 PM
Ah, same sort of baling routine I grew up with Del. Mowed with a drawbar mounted IH sickle mower, crimped with a Brady crimper, raked with a 4 bar John Deere side delivery rake on steel one day, raked again the next morning and baled with an International 46 baler that same afternoon. Those Wisconsin engines were tough but fickle. You didn't want to kill it though as they were about impossible to start again when they were hot. May as well find something else to do for a while until they cooled down.
 
Wow HD! I had no idea you were a Cockshutt guy. I learned to drive tractor on our Co-Op E3, the same thing as a Cockshutt 30. And I spent many hours cultivating on an E-4, (Cockshutt 40). In fact it was the first tractor my Dad bought new back in 1950. True live power take off, not the slip clutch, kinda-sorta live PTO that Allis-Chalmers claimed they had. The E4 is down in my shed. Hasn't been run in about 20 years so need to get that project up and going. My brother has a 20, 30 and a 50.

Have fun bobber and thanks for the offer. We finished the hay on mine this afternoon. Matt broke a belt and couldn't wrap the last bale so it wound up in my yard under a tarp. There was a hunk of windrow he didn't get so I wound up going back to the field and pitching it on a trailer. Still some small squares to do but who knows when that will be with all the rain in the forecast. Just thankful we got what we did over the weekend.

Morning boys.  We have gotten some work done this weekend so far.  We trimmed the trees along the driveway.  Looks great.  The snowplow won't hit them now.  It took 4 wagon loads of branches to get it done.  Lot's of burning to do now.  Also I have a big pile of firewood that I starting stacking under the eaves of the garage/shop.  Will be nice to get that all organized.  Had so much that we just brought it home and made a big pile behind the garage last year.  I wish the wealth of a man really was determined by the size of his wood pile.  lol  It rained 3/4" here last night so after it dries up I will stack more of it today.  If it doesn't rain anymore that is.

Well we got Sam Bradford.  Man is that great!  I have been watching videos of him and am excited.  Maybe if Teddy comes back he will be Bradfords backup.  I guess Bradford played with Hill for a few years so they know each other already.  That is great.  I hope he comes in and plays some against the Titans so he gets some playing time before we play Green Bay.  Going to be a great season.

Interesting reading that many of you had the same experience growing up around farms and farm equipment as I did.  I spent the first 18 years on a farm.  Yes we also had a Cockshutt 30.  I do remember putting up loose hay.  We would pull the "hay loader" behind the wagon, and then spread the loose hay over several layers of rope which we would then attach to the cable and pull it up into the barn.  It was a big improvement going to a square baler but the work was actually harder.  My dad would drive the John Deere 2010 pulling the John Deere 14-T baler while my brother and I piled the bails on the wagon.  He really enjoyed putting his foot up in the fender, puffing on a Crooks cigar, and pound down the throttle and just grin as we fought furiously to keep up.  Good times for sure.

Had a great time at the cabin the past few days.  My son, his wife and their son joined us on Saturday.  While having lunch in the porch, my grandson says, look her comes a deer.  A very respectable buck came running over a hill and towards the cabin.  He turned and went in the woods about 100 yards away.  Quite a sight at high noon.  Never did see anything chasing it.

Sure glad I did that tiling and sump pump three years ago. Looks like a soggy, stormy week to start the back-to-school kiddies off. Makes me flash back right  to the yellow rain coats, and those floppy boots with the flip-over buckle thingies....sitting in the bright classroom, looking out at lightning flashing in the black sky.

I also use to ride the hay wagon and put up bails in the barn, tough work, hated it. I can also vividly remeber dad and grandpa hoisting loose hay thru the barn door in the hayloft.  the one thing that stands out the most is my brother convincing to grab on to the hay rope,"I wont pull you up to high, I promise" long way down...ouch. got a good bear on the pile to I post it in the big game thread. Have a good day guys.

WHY OUR HEALTH CARE COSTS ARE SO HIGH!

Those of us who spend much time in a doctor's office should appreciate this! Doesn't it seem more and more that physicians are running their practices like an assembly line?
Here's what happened to Kevin:

Kevin walked into a doctor's office and the receptionist asked him what he had. Kevin said: "Shingles."
So she wrote down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.

Fifteen minutes later a nurse's aide came out and asked Kevin what he had...
Kevin said, "Shingles."
So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told Kevin to wait in the examining room.

A half hour later a nurse came in and asked Kevin what he had. Kevin said, "Shingles.."
So the nurse gave Kevin a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, and told Kevin to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.


An hour later the doctor came in and found Kevin sitting patiently in the nude and asked Kevin what he had.


Kevin said, "Shingles."
The doctor asked, "Where?"
Kevin said, "Outside on the truck. Where do you want me to unload 'em?"

                                   ;D

That must be a sign that you were missed Glen.  That is a good thing.  Good one about the shingles Reb.  By the way after watching Terry Bradshaw's commercials on shingles I went in a got the shot about a year ago.  A friend of mine had shingles a few years ago and he was pretty uncomfortable and nothing you can really do about it I don't think.  I told the nurse Terry Bradshaw sent me.  She smiled but I don't know if she knew what I meant.  Rebs you better go buy your boat back.  You have more rain coming I see.  I told the wife I love that part of the state but it sure seems like lots of rain every few years makes for lots of flooding and erosion problems.  Maybe I will just stay put up here away from those Zika squitos.

I got my shingles shot last year, LPS. Don't need those along with the other issues. Ya, I miss my boat, but not being able to take it out because of physical limitations was almost harder...there it sat, and I couldn't do much about it. A nice family bought it and loves it, so I'm happy. Not to mention I actually sold it for exactly what I bought it new for years back! I'd say I got my money out of it!  ;) Waiting to see how bad we get flooded here in Swampville right now, I can't see the rain gauge from here, and I'm not moving until my coffee's done...kinda like Glenn.  ;D
Supposed to be a solid week of T-storms here. I snuck out yday afternoon on the rider and got the yard done before the rain hit. Figgered in a week, with the rain, my yard will be a foot tall and I'll have to have Dotch bring his baler down. Or maybe drop a few sheep off.
Good to see yer OK and all in one piece, Glenn. Thought maybe BOar had taken ya out on a bear hunt and left ya in the woods. Well, I need another cuppa joe, so I think I'll amble out to the ran gauge to see how far along we are. Have a good day, guys!

Morning all. Drying out after all the rain on Sunday. We had 2.65" of rain. At our hunting land I hear it was 4" of rain. We our supposed to go there this weekend and get some work done. I think we may get some wet feet. I am glad the Vikings went and got Bradford. At least they are being aggressive. Have a good day.

My dad owned an implement dealership for 40 years.   We lived in town but my dad would loan me out to every farmer on the planet in the summer.   I bailed hay, milked cows,  walked beans, picked rock.  Come to think of it I'm not sure I was loaned out as I never saw any money.   From about the age of 5 or 6 I  was driving tractor, combines,  and fork lifts.   If it can be driven I can drive it.

On the shingles thing: Had them 3 years ago. Started as a rash on my right side. After treating it unsuccessfully for a week with anti-insect bite and anti-fungals it spread so went to the doctor. She prescribed some acyclovir horse pills and it calmed down after about 10 days. In the meantime it was painful to the touch. Tight fitting clothes made it hurt and sleeping was difficult. The worst was showering. Even cool water felt like it was scalding hot when it hit the affected area, enough to make me grit my teeth and cuss. After about 10 days the pain subsided although the scars were evident for months.

We were spared the brunt of the rain with only 1.39" and 1.08" in town and at the ranch respectively since Monday. The soil moisture profile in the top 5' is full though and the mosquitoes are unreal from prior rainfall events. For the months July and August we had almost 17" of rain total at the ranch, only about .8" less than we'd typically expect for May - August.  Crop won't be using much more now it's approaching maturity. Needs to dry out to avoid making a real mess come harvest time.

The Bradford signing looks like a good move at this point. Finally someone who can get the ball down the field when necessary and is still mobile enough so he doesn't need a cane or a walker.  :happy1:

Another 3/4" of rain snuck in on us last night.  Our cukes have just kicked in in the last few weeks.  No green peppers yet, just little flowers.  I think so much rain here just slowed everything down.  Maters are doing good now.  Eating them in salads every night.  Good time of year.  I am haveing a small zucchinni cut up in chunks as part of my lunch today.  I like to do that with cukes too.   Well the weekend is getting close.  Have a good one all.

Well, the massive storms and have rain didn't materialize. Flood watch/warning cancelled. I had a whopping 1/2" rain in my gauge from it all. The wedder morjits blew it again...and for once, I'm glad. It's like a tropical steambath down here in Swampville today. We've had consistent dewpoints above 70* all summer, which is in the gag me range. Only thing benefiting that I can see are the skeeters and my 'mato's. Picked some last nite, and the skeeters attacked in swarms. Suns struggling to come out right now, funky orange sky out there.
No more of those big omelets with toast and jam...I've gained four lbs. Think it's all the mac salads I've had for side dishes, and the occasional bowl of ice cream, which I never eat, but picked some up a few weeks ago. Back to the lettuce salads and a small piece of meat for supper....dang. Have a good day, guys.

Another day in paradise. We ended up getting just over 3/8" of rain last night. Still more than we needed. I hear ya Reb about the good food and gaining weight.

The wedding bug has bit around these parts. Got one coming up on Saturday. Ish. I hate weddings. Fortunately it is relatively local so it doesn't involve long distance travel like sometimes. 32nd wedding anniversary today so probably better make a token effort. Did oil the hinges on the fold down front seats in the Stude should Mrs. Cheviot get me in a compromising position. Getting oil changed and new nerf bars put on truck so I'm afoot and not on horseback.  I told them they could keep the wire as a tip at the shop. They can probably use it for future repairs. Has been no dating fat chicks in the meantime.  :doah:

Really getting it again down here in Swampville. 'Fraid we might slowly slide off the map sometime soon. They might have to bump things up a notch from this being the 7th wettest Summer on record. I don't ever recall so much rain in one Summer. My crab apple is so loaded again, the top branches have drooped over in a big "U" and are hanging halfway down the tree. Kinda like Glenn when he's loaded.  ;D
Gonna be a bumper crop for the tree rats and birdies to snack on over the winter. Only problem is the dropped ones rot and turn into a stinky, huge, mushy mess on top of the snow/ground. Can't rake up applesauce. I tried. Cedar waxwings invaded the tree 2 years ago and gorged on the apples. Musta been 50 of 'em. Never seen anything like it. Well gents, time for cuppa joe #2, stay dry and have a good day.

Hope you have fun coffee. Sad to hear on all counts Glenn and Reb. I sometimes wonder in the zeal to increase pollinators if we won't see more issues with bee stings as a result. Unless you've been stung you really don't know how you'll react and then it might be too late. I have a bumblebee nest in the ground in the backyard and the dogs have both been stung. I won't mow over it until almost dark to avoid getting nailed myself.

Raining again here Reb so brace yourself!  :bonk:

Most of the bee stings I have gotten over the years have 6wasps or hornets, not pollinators like honeybees or bumblebees.

Sorry to hear about the deaths of friends.  I got wacked by some hornets [the under ground type] this year.  First time I ever broke out in a rash after the bee stings though.  Under my arm pits and groin area.  This was while I was mowing the grass.  My wife thought it was heat rash, but I told her I never got a heat rash in my life, so I blamed it on the bee sting.  Lasted one day and the rash was gone.  good luck.

RH that was at 4 am!!!  What are you doing up so early.  Probably making sausage...  Oops, maybe helping the wife...  Hope all is well in your house.  Sorry to hear about your losses you guys.  It is a tough thing.  The older we get the more it happens to the people we know.  We just have to hang in there. 

Well it is my Saturday to work.  Darn.  Actually I will be the only one there so it is kind of peaceful.  I sort of like it.  Will be leaving for the BlacK Hills in a few days so that I am looking forward to.  I have never been there before.  lol  The wife has been so she knows the spots to see I guess.  She really liked the Wind Caves.  We of course will see Mt. Rushmore and my brother said we should all go zip lining at a place near there.  I am all in on that so I hope it happens.  I have rib eyes that I had cut 1 1/4" thick that I am bringing so am looking forward to them.  It is a family get together so will be a great time.  Manhattans will be the cocktail of choice at 4 in the afternoon. We are renting a very nice cabin from an old high school buddy of mine.  His wife and him have 2 of these beautiful cabins 15 minutes from Deadwood and are out in the hills with beautiful views.  Check this out:  www.blackhillsluxurycabins.com.  We are renting the Big Sky cabin.  SO we will eat somewhere in Deadwood one night too.  Lot's of places we have to pick from so let me know if you have any favorites.  I see Kevin Costner owns one of them.  Maybe we will go there. 

Ok gotta go so will check in later for more from you guys.  Later,,,,,

Just figured Glenn was on vaca....so, someone had to pick up the union slack....  :rotflmao:

Just got back from town, had to go to the credit union cause one of my accounts got hacked, only lost a few bucks, but it's the principal...
Went to Maynerds to check out the cost of another freezer and a wine cooler, gonna wait till tomorrow to pull the trigger cause the 11% sale starts then.

Then it was off to Napa to get a temp scensor for the go cart (commuter car) I put that in as soon as I got home.

Called on my Cub Cadet that's in the shop for warranty work....not ready, so I'll have to mow the country lot with the Craftsman (slow mow'in)

Burgers and brats for the grill this afternoon...nuth'in special.....but, good eating.

Today I was gonna cut grass.Last time it was cut was 6-8?? Weeks ago
 Then a TV show the ole girl said stay up an watch it  a few nights ago was on. It was a 6 hour show and started at I think 8PM, No way could I watch the whole show from 8PM till 2AM!!! It was on from 8AM till 2PM today and it's called Harley and the Davidson's. If anyone is a scooter enthusiast its a great must watch of how Harley Davidson got started puttin engines on bicycles.I loved it just fell short of modern day Harley's! It ended right after the suicide shift was added on the Knucklehead.
 So if yer a scooter,biker type try to catch it. starts slow but comes around quickly with WWl and competition wit Indian plus all the other motorcycle start ups  in the late 1800's early 1900's

I had a 250 Harley dirt bike.  Bought it new.  Beautiful bike.  It was black with red pin striping.  Everything was steel and tin.  No plastic that I remember.  Not as good on trails as Enduros but looked better....   Man I wish I still had that one too.  I think it may have been about a 1978????  Well today I need to improve the trail to the new deer stand.  A few small trees are blocking the best trail to it.  It is a couple  hundred yards from the house so need to sneak in to it quietly.  Then it is Vikings time.  Just like RH, I am a huge fan and yes I drink the Kool-aid.  I think we will do good this year again.  In our family pool I picked 12 wins.  lol  As you can see I am an optimist too....   I think Hill will start but Sam will get in the game at half or so.  Not sure what will be on the grill but I just took out a pkg. of homemade bacon for breakfast.  Rebs has a great breakfast every day and I only have cereal or a banana during the week so it is time to catch up a little.  I got some honey from the local bee keeper the other day.  I put a shot in my first cup of java every morning.  He told me the stuff in the stores is pasteurized so most of the health benefits are not in it as in fresh honey.  So I always try to get it from him.  They have a big operation.  They take the bees to sunny Cal in the winter.  Well I am off to the kitchen.  Later boys.

Ya, LPS, it's Viking time!!!! I'm going to make some tater tot deal with a mix of sour cream and ranch dressing on top.  Then put sliced green onions and jalapenos over 3/4 of the dish and leave 1/4 with just the green onions but will top off the whole deal with a bunch of shredded cheese and bake in the oven until the cheese gets mellted good.  I put the tator tots in the oven and bake them first before I put the other stuff on.  Then after the stuff is put on I put it back in the oven until the cheese melds in there good.  oh ya, I will also fry up some bacon until crispy, drain the fat and then chop up the bacon and sprinkle that over as well.  Should be good.  I will also pick up a couple of boneless pork loins from Cub since they have them at 1.69 lb.  I'll be picking some up every day.  Never have enough Canadian bacon plus some for pork roasts.  Go Vikings and Skol  :toast: :toast: :toast:good luck.

Mornin ' guys!! Sunny and 60* here in Swampville.  I DID sleep in late for ya!! 7:30!!  ;D Sure is nice not getting up at 4:30 am anymore for those 12 hr days and weekends...I'm lovin' it. Did get all the painting done "downstair" yday. What a pain!!!! Don't paint the walls in a long stairway unless you have to. The ceiling in the stairway is sprayed texture, and it got little dings in it over the years from carrying stuff downstairs and hitting it. After touching it up, the spots stuck out like a sore thumb....so I ended up rolling the entire ceiling, too. About 1/4 cup paint left over. Just barely made it. Go over it more than once, or too much paint, and your texturing will come off. Only get one chance at that.  Hate doing that. Carpet goes in next week, and hopefully my new 'fridge will be here tomorrow and put in.  Sold the "old" one in 30 mns on that  C-list...didn't know so many folks wanted a good used 'fridge. Money,money, money. Thinkin' some thick sliced bacon, eggs and toast sounds purty good right now....have a good day, guys! You too, Glenn!  ; ;D

After touching it up, the spots stuck out like a sore thumb....so I ended up rolling the entire ceiling, too. About 1/4 cup paint left over. Just barely made it. Go over it more than once, or too much paint, and your texturing will come off. Only get one chance at that.  Hate doing that. Carpet goes in next week, and hopefully my new 'fridge will be here tomorrow and put in.  Sold the "old" one in 30 mns on that  C-list...didn't know so many folks wanted a good used 'fridge. Money,money, money. Thinkin' some thick sliced bacon, eggs and toast sounds purty good right now....have a good day, guys! You too, Glenn!  ; ;D
Reb..........I ALWAYS have a good day when I can impose pain and agony on employers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bobber, you must have missed my directions on how to get to Black's beach.....   Or maybe that was on another forum.   

Girls don't wear bikinis there.....
    It was high on my list but apparently not the wife's. Got pretty close though, was by Scripps pier.  Next time!!

Not sleeping just busy at work. Good morning!! Another lovely day at work. We got our food plots all planted this past weekend. Only buried the tractor once and a skid steer once. of course that happened right away and I thought it is going to be a long day. Everything went good after that. I would say now all we need is some rain, but I am not going there. Already a ton of moisture in the ground. Now we just need some nice days to make it grow some. Sorry Boar, I know the cooler weather would help you out. I can't believe bowhunting opens on Saturday. Maybe I will be ready to hunt in a week or two. Need to get my stands up and ready to hunt though. Hope to get to that this week sometime after work. Have a good day all!

A few days ago we were being nostalgic and reminiscing about making hay in the old days.  A bale fork was mentioned a few times.  Just in case someone out there hasn't seen one or doesn't know what they are, here is a picture of mine.  I still have it hanging in the shed.  One thing for sure, you don't want it to come down on your head.

Actually we used the fork that was for loose hay for bales when they came along.  Stood on a plank mounted on the wall of the barn so we could see to pull the trip rope.  There was sort of a drive through area where the wagons came in.

Are you going to get that one mounted coffee?  ;) No question about it deadeye, wicked looking contraption. Wouldn't want that bad boy to land on me. It'd leave a mark.  :oops1:

Very sad news this a.m. The local police chief committed suicide yesterday sometime after he dropped his kids off at school. Apparently had battled depression. Was a super nice guy, very upbeat and positive, good family man, involved in the community a lot more than just law enforcement. I talked to him many times when I went to the post office. He always smiled and waved when I'd meet him on the road.  Everyone is in total disbelief.

Condolences Dotch, to you and your friends & their families.

This has been a bad year for deaths, and deaths by suicide.
2 out of the 5 funerals that I have been to, have been suicide.
The latest, was my nephew of 34 years old.
Sept. 10th was national suicide prevention day, and my kids will be walking in a suicide prevention walk this coming weekend in his name.

So, I know where your at....and it's hard to get a grip around...
Hang in there buddy!

Man it is really tough to hear about all of these good people taking their life.  I have seen this while in the Army and personally here at home.  My X wife took her own life, 6 years after we divorced.  She had a good husband and plenty of money from that marriage, but for some reason she ended her life.  For me I can't think of a reason to do this and it would be unfair of me to speculate why.  A person would have to be at the point of no return to do this.  Much pain involved for those still living who loved that person.  Why.  I'll leave that to others who are more qualified than me.  Overseas I seen the pain of someone who recieved a " Dear John" letter and seen a once open person suddenly become silent.  In my X wives case, I have no idea.  Two daughters and grandchildren to love for years was not worth living for.  I will not blame her.  Tough subject.  Was going to talk about going up north tomorrow fishing around Duluth for a day but this affected me.  Dotch, sorry for the bad news there.  Sounded like a real nice man.  I'm sure he was, Prayers for all who loved him.  Reinhard

I haven't had any suicide issues recently but two of my friends from high school killed themselves within a couple years of graduation.   One was a good friend from a swimming team, and I called him up one day and his dad said he had killed himself.   

Quite a shock in both cases.   Hard to understand.

So sorry to hear about your friend Dotch.  The other day on TV they said there were about 750 suicide deaths in MN last year.  I had to play it back cuz I couldn't believe it.  I bet it was on the 10th.  They said this year is a little higher than last.  Way too bad.  I too have lost friends and family from suicide.  I remember a book I read about a war prisioner in high school  reading class.  They guy had a terrible day every day.  He hung in there and finally got out.  The moral of the story was that no matter how bleak life looks there is always the chance that it will get better.  I always think about that when I hear someone has given up.  Too bad they couldn't hang on. I am sure we don't know where they are inside. 

Well our dogs and cat are acting a little different.  They know something is up with us prepping for our vacation in the Hills.   So them we love them up a  little more and you know that just makes them a little more suspicious.  lol A neighbor will be taking care of the place so everything will be alright.  It is down to 35 outside right now.  I picked most of the maters last night just in case.  Sure wish the growing season would last a little longer.  Love going out and picking things out of the garden for a salad.  Well I have potato salad to make so see ya all later.

So sorry to here that. I can share a little bit about depression as I have struggled with it my self. I be leave I have basically struggled with it most of my life but it really hit home a few years ago. I was able to reach out to friends and family and work through it. Its so hard to explain as it just overtakes you mentaly and physically. Things you enjoy are so  hard to do and it just snowballs from there.. Being around other people is terrifying which snowballs also. Your mind just dwells on everything  over and over and over to the point you cant stand it anymore.  Scary stuff that's for sure.
 Anyway  fall is in the air,36 here . My golf course job will be winding down. The plan  is to play after work everyday I'm there . I went from hitting it the best I ever had to hitting every shot fat. Wow talk about frustrating. Dusted off the recurve and started shooting a couple arrows a day. Going to try and take a deer with it this year, have a area all scouted out just waiting to pick up a portable stand. Plan on doing some fall fishing so bring on the nice weather. all you guys and gals have a great day

Real clinical depression is mean stuff, and caused by a chemical imbalance in your body.  Serotonin, dopamine, that kind of stuff. 

Working your way through it is sometimes possible, but sometimes professional help and anti-depressant drugs are necessary.   A neighbor of mine had it hit sort of out of the blue.   The drugs helped him get better.   

Glenn, consider yourself fortunate that you haven't had to deal with something like that.

Post by: Dotch on September 14, 2016, 11:59:46 AM
Hey thanks guys. Depression is some mean stuff and situations are influencing factors/triggering mechanisms if you will in addition to the chemical imbalances. As fast paced as this old world has become and as ruthless as some people are, it's amazing there aren't more issues.  This is why I want to slow down and move more at my own pace. I'm getting to the age where I'm tired of my schedule being dictated by someone else and their silly ass problems, whether it be employees, customers, corporate a-holes, etc. While money is always a concern it's not the primary issue. My state of mental health is. With each revolution around the sun, it becomes more and more evident to me. When my number is up I'm done so may as well do my best to enjoy it until then.  :dancinred:

I sure don't miss the micro managing and having to account for every minute of where I was, what I was doing, why I was there, etc. We even had to scan hundreds of barcodes in a day for a complete tour, then it was downloaded into the computer...."why did it take you 11 minutes to get from point A to point B?" No wonder we all drank so much. It's nice now to get up and do what I want, when I want, without having to have a specific reason. Enjoy the hell out of it!!! I do!!!!   ;D

I spent the evening getting the framper ready for the winter.  I put Rv antifreeze in all the lines and cleaned out the fridge.  I'm looking forward to getting some fish slime on the floor.  Blaze, my 10 yr old GSP, claimed his spot on the couch until the CP walked in.  Now to look for an Ion auger and an underwater camera.  I'm going to have to check out my cabela dollars I have saved up.  I'm not sure if I told you guys but at the end of the month we are picking up our new GSP puppy.

Got some tops sirloins for the grill tonight. Got me hungry already. I may have 20 years to go, but it sure felt like I retired when I moved up here to the north land. I went from working 50-80 hours a week to a straight 40. Have not had to work a Saturday in 10 years. Must be because we are not union, don't have to work as hard as those union guys  ;) :happy1: :bonk: :bonk: :bonk:. Have a good day all!!

Morning, all. Pretty soggy and drippy down here in Swampville. Just saw 2 squirrels backstroke by. Last nites storm dumped another one and 3/4'' inches on us, according to my just-about-worn-out rain gauge. Thanks for the warning Dotch, it hit about 5 mns after yer message. Got black real fast. (pic)  Buddy is coming over after lunch so we can move out all the furniture and thousand pieces of fishing/camping gear in the rec room to make room for the carpet layers on Monday. How did I accumulate so many coolers and insulated cooler bags, anyway?! Anyone need a Minnow Magic aerated minnow cooler!? I found four finished ones in the stuff...    :doah:   My other electrician buddy (he bought all my ice fishing gear) will be here checking some outlets and wiring for me. I can see not getting too much done today when we all get yakking fishing....have a good day guys, and stay dry.

Last night after bemoaning the fact the last of my Tanqueray was suddenly history, it dawned on me I'd purchased a new 1.75 liter bottle for our anniversary. Promptly pressed that bad boy into service! 1.21" of rain at the ranch and 1.37" in Bugtussle proper in the overnight. Heading to a car show in Waseca tomorrow. Offers an excellent opportunity to relax, sit around, talk smart and have a couple beers for a few hours. Gotta get rid of the leftovers Mrs. Cheviot brought back from the MN State Fair. My buddy's wife is also gone for the weekend. Should probably get something done too but while the cat's away, the mice will play!  :whistling:

I'm alive!!!!

Good morning fellas.  Life is great!  I haven't been at peace like this for ten plus years.  Don't know if I posted but I am getting divorced and it's been a couple of months since I told the wife.  The days have their ups and downs with her working things out but #1 best thing is my kids are doing great.  Son who is a senior is taking it very well and daughter who's a junior has had some troubles but I think the main thing was her bf moved and she was bummed about that.  Anyway life is moving on.

I met a gal who's pretty cool.  Wife thought it was great and didn't care at all until she saw her!  Guess #2 is supposed to not be better looking than #1!  Good for me I say.  We are heading to Annandale with a friend and his wife for some big Flea market swap meet.  New gal loves that stuff and she brought me musky fishing for my birthday a few weeks ago.  We each caught one, hers a 38 incher mine a 40 incher.  It's hard outfishing others but I'm pretty nice about it since I have so much experience.

I wish I could post photos on here easier.  I've got 8 or so 28-30 inch walleyes to post from this year.  What a fishing year for the Walters.  Probably close to 600 or so were brought into the boat.  Also figured out the bluegills on my dad's lake.  Beautiful and fun fish and I never keep a one, just photos. 

FYI, I'm a happy man, hope you can tell.  I'm back.  Sober, happy, and being a dad.  Life is good my friends.

 :cry:

                          The mornin after the day before.

Taws' a said day in Lee's world yesterday. I spent the day working on tearing down most of the remainders of my 1997 love of my life (Lund Boat). I'm trying to remove all the nifty after market upgrade items I installed over the last 20 yrs. My boat has been classified as not repairable. Therefore It will be salvaged. As much as I've always considered myself a pretty tuff guy I caught myself with a tear :cry: on my cheek once during the process. Now I'm waiting to hear from my outboard motor guy to see if he can locate parts for my 2001 motor that are no longer stocked. If not that will have to go to the graveyard also. :banghead:

I still have to do more work on my wreck before the flatbed truck comes to take her to the burial grounds. After that I can sit and admire my empty boat trailer.

Details &  :Photography: Here:

Atta boy LL, sounds like your having a blast!! Not sure wether to say congrats or that sucks, splitting up families is hard to do. Well anyhow glad your back and happy, we need to find up some other missing forum friends, lbbg, Bobby bass sorry if I'm missing any others. Morning all just got back from our 2 mile walk, the pooch won't let us sleep in on weekends.  We walk around a softball park and he finds up all the home run balls in woods and weeds...pretty funny.

 Sun Wow its been drizzle here all morning. Hate to say it but I wet a line yesterday and it was kinda slow? Only spent two hours out there. The lake was like glass  at 7am but time I got out there it was a little choppy.
Golf game coming back around after hitting the ball fat for a month I was very frustrated to say the least. Still shooting two arrows a day with the recurve and will start hunting in oct.. If I'm sitting in my stand and a grouse comes by I always have a arrow just for that and will always give up the silence to take one with the bow. My buddies that were going to come duck hunt cancelled ,maybe next year. Any way have a great day and good luck to all you early season hunters

Bummer Lee. Hope you somehow get something you like to replace her. And speaking of replacements, geez LL, that was quick. You're not  suddenly eating a lot of Kelloggs cereal are you?  :scratch: I know it sounded like things were not all peaches and cream but had no idea you'd changed gears or chicks recently. If you're happy and your ex isn't that's the main thing...lol. Personally, if it ever came to that here, after 32 years of marriage there is NO WAY I could ever get married again. I enjoy my freedom too much now when Mrs.Cheviot is gone on her travels. I really need my space. 

My buddy, Vista's noted Swedish astronomer and I spent the morning and part of the afternoon at the car show in Waseca. Both of us were in the top 20 again and I won a $20 door prize to Club 57/Starfire grill so nothing wrong with that. We had a good time and best of all we got to drive around making people gawk. Apparently not every day you see a couple of old farts tearing around in '57 T-Birds and '59 Silver Hawks. Before we know it the snow will be flying so we'd better enjoy it while we can.  :snow2:

Always tough to loose a great boat.  I've been through storms up there but thankfully it was in a protected spot at the time.  Not always possible but I got lucky.  So at the time I was lucky to save my boat from storms,  I lost it to my getting divorced years ago.  Had to pay for a lawyer and I didn't have the money back then, so there it went.  The boat, my depth finder [first Vexilar flasher], and a new gas auger used one season.  Talk about being devastated.  But I got my kids and a new life and now I have two boats and a canoe and a awesome wife.  Hopefully LL, that a new life begins with you.    good luck.

Taking care of my wife but I did go fishing for a day up to Duluth.  Boulder Lake.  Jumped in my brothers boat.  It was one of those retired police buddy contests they have.  Everyone chips in $20 bucks and the most weight by one guy taken wins it all.  I came in second which netted me $0  LOL.  Fun day.  Some walleyes, nice crappies, and a few good perch.  Yesterday while driving my truck my heat gauge went up.  Stopped and antifreeze sprayed everywhere.  Had it towed home [only 3 miles away].  Hose or maybe a water pump.  Will check it out today.  Getting ready for the game.  Now to plan the meal.  I'm thinking sausage also.  Polish next.  good luck.

I am being a lazy bum today so far. I need to get my mojo back after playing hard yesterday. Went to FF when I finished chores last night and got a 3 pt. bale spear on sale. Now I can maneuver the bales around as needed rather than calling my neighbor once every few weeks. Also got a couple thick cut pork chops for the grill this noon and need to fish some lamb chops out of the freezer to thaw for supper. Since it's breezy, I should also get my 'maters picked and mow lawn. However, just thinking about all this work tuckered me out so much I had to take a nap after morning chores! Had a little coffee sans tincture after I woke up so now I should be ready to tear into 'er.  :coffee:

Well talk to ya all later.  PS  I wonder about what your living arrangements are now LL?  Do you and #2 stay in the guest bedroom and walk around in your robes in the morning talking to #1 while having coffee????   lolol  :laughroll:  Maybe have some....   or nothing.....   lol   Hey good luck to you.   And Lee Man I feel for ya.  Good luck to you too.  Back to MN soon boys.

Very nice LL. The girl isn't bad either...lol. Seriously, just happy that you're happy. Think I'm feeling a little of the Budweiser I was drinking yesterday. My head kinda hurts. Haven't been in the habit of drinking that stuff but since it was warm out,  it suddenly became one of my 3 favorite kinds of beer. It was in the fridge, it belonged to someone else and it was cold.  ;) Wow, looks like there are buys to be had in the meat dept. there dew. Speaking of that, peeked at whole pork loin prices the other day. Cheap. Should load up. About the time I do that though someone will butcher a hog and wonder if I want half of it. Well best get back at it. Still some yield estimates to finish up.

Hi ya fellas, speaking of fish I need to pull some out. Just got done snapping 4 big boxes of sticks for kindling for the up coming fireplace season, that gives me 8 boxes in the shed so hopefully it'll make it. I've been meaning to put in a wood insert downstairs but I keep putting it off, they make it look easy on the videos but we all know how that goes. Any how trapping season has come up fast so get them mousing traps ready, nuttin like a good meal of ol Beaty eyes...

Got home today from the Black Hills.  Had a great time.  Saw all of the attractions.  Stayed in a great cabin on top of Deer Mountain south of Lead.  BUT it is great to be back home.  Got the dogs out of the kennel and Bob the cat was so glad to see us back at home too. 

Good to hear that LL is back on track.  I just wonder how much he paid the model to stand on his pontoon boat for that pic.  lol  Good for you LL.  Life is wonderful and we all need to remember that especially in trying times. 

I have lots of pics on the cam of the two fawns and the doe hanging around but no bucks for awhile.  Had a fork horn awhile back.  I may take him with my crossbow if I get a good shot but he must know that hence his no show lately.  Have never stuck a deer with an arrow so looking forward to it.  Ok time for me to relax now.  Drove almost 2000 miles in the last few days and that is a lot for me.  Like I said GREAT to be back home.

Morning all. It has been a crazy busy week this week. Nothing is going right at work so far. Have one of the 3D printers broke down and they sent us the wrong parts yesterday. Now waiting for the correct ones to get here today. Last Saturday we went to the hunting land and blazed in a new trial through the woods to put up a stand for my step son. Boy did that kick our butts. The wife and I could barely move when we got home. Beer didn't hardly even help, but I kept trying to see if it would. Well hope things go better today.

Got a little sprinkle going on here this morning.  I am hoping to mow the lawn this afternoon after I get all of my other work done.

Looks like the rain is up north right now but they are saying we are going to get it also into the evening.  Just put 3  boneless pork loins in the brine.  9 days and they get smoked.  These are for my brother.  Then I have to make more for us and deer camp give away's.  My brother went to our deer area to check for down'd trees.  With the heavy straight line wins they had north of Duluth it was a concern.  He say's he didn't see much of that there.  But 15 miles south of there it was a different story.  I seen the damage when I went fishing last week to Boulder Lake.  Many big white pines were down.  He said he did find some edible mushrooms there for the first time.  Lot's of them.  Probably because we normally go there in late October.  Have a good one.  good luck.

Just waiting to see what the weather is going to do to us tonight. We were lucky as only about 10 miles up the road they got 2.5" or more. Due to the wet weather, it's shaping up like I'm probably going to make my annual drink, er, I mean fishing trip to Canada after all next week. Need to get one small detail handled first: My Dotch pickup. Noticed last night when I dropped some papers off at a customer's place that it was sluggish about starting. Left it running when I did chores at the neighbors then went home. Opened the hood and there was a bunch of corrosion around the battery connection on the positive cable. Took the cables off, cleaned the posts and clamps, reconnected them and everything seemed normal.

Started OK when I went to work this a.m. but when I was ready to leave and check fields, it acted bucky again. Left the truck running while afield and decided I'd better make a stop at the local repair shop on my way back through town. Pulled up, shut it off, made an appt. for tomorrow a.m. then got back in to start it. One crank and that was it. Tried it again. Same result. One more time ditto. Starter smelled hot. Tried it while Ike listened, smelled hot and no doubt in his mind it was probably the starter. Could have one tomorrow he said. Mrs. Cheviot came and got me so now I'm driving the Buick for a day. I could've drove the Stude I suppose but I didn't want her to become aroused. After all, I had work to do.

lol  Good one about sizes...   Back to the ol grind today.  Oh well 2 days this week makes for a great week.   Did get things shipped yesterday and got the lawn mowed.  Then went fishing after supper and got one sauger right up to the boat and lost it.  Nice one too.  Had another one nibbling but didn't get it.  Felt good to be out though.  The dogs loved it too.  Buddy has sure settled down in the boat.  He used to run all over looking in every direction.  Now he sits calmly and smells the air for critters along the shoreline.  Good boy. 

First day of fall today.  Feels great.  Haven't sat in the blind yet.  Only the fawns and doe on the trail cam.  I am thinking when people start shooting that is when the bucks may show up.  Who knows??

I finally know what Dotch has been talking about when he claims he has to avoid the Mrs amorous moves.  I mean I just turned 49 I can't keep up at this pace of the new gal.  My face hurts from kissing too and my back actually hurts from it getting rubbed too much.  Also my skin is smooth from getting loofad or whatever its called in the shower.  Ok...family site.

Heading to cabin today.  I have days of tree removal to do.  Hope to have it cleaned up by end of October with various trips up there.  Kind of funny I could move up there now at least temporarily but I want to stay around my kids. 

Hey Dotch she does have the same first name as the Kelloggs chick!  Funny.

Morning, all! 3" rain is what we lucked out with down here in Swampville. Looked real nasty for a bit; sky turned that sickly orangish yellow in the NW; bathing everything in that light, making the green trees look neon. That quickly turned to hard black when the lightning started cracking and the thunder rumbling....and I knew we were in for it again.  :cry:

Those are some cool pics Reb. Morning all. Staying plenty busy here at work. Actually I am behind the eight ball. Have been for the last 2 weeks. You need to man up LL, it is a tuff life when them women get into their frisky 40s and the frisky 50s.  :happy1: I have been abused for the last 11 years, it is a ruff life. ;) :happy1: I think we are going to stop tonight at the gun dealer, I want to get a deer rifle that my wife can shoot. Thinking of a 7mm-08. Think that should be a good one. Then maybe my grandson can shoot it too in a couple of years. Also maybe if she has a new toy to play with I can get a little rest. ;)   Have a good one all!

Good morning all.  Going to Fleet Farm today to get a holster for my hand gun I use for my carry permit.  Inside the pants carry doesn't work for me.  Things are getting crazy out there.  I have not carried much at all.  Mainly when I travel.  I do not want it visible at all.  have to get a extra clip also.  the handgun I have was my brothers second gun he wore while on duty.  he have it to me some time ago.  I practice a lot though at a indoor range near my home.  Have to get me some more pellets for smoking as well.  I'm looking forward to going up north again to check the deer area.  We hunt north of Duluth way back in the woods and it's always great to check the stands, deer signs, and just being there even though we have hunted the  same place since the late 60's.  Pink salmon or "humpies" are running thick in the Gooseberry River and some other streams right now for those who want to get a few of them.  good luck.

Careful there LL and jerkbiat. I think people here are starting to suspect I might be full of $hit!  :rotflmao:

We're OK. A little soggy perhaps but we've been down this road before. Waseca sounds like ground zero this time around. They just got done setting precip records for the two month period of July and August, got pounded yesterday and now again in the overnight. Anecdotal reports of over 13" in the 24 hour period. At the SROC, they measured 7.64" in the overnight; the old record was 5.63 in 2010. Their two day total was 10.16" beating the old record of 7.65". Their September total so far is 14.57"; the old record was 12.66". Over 40" for the May - September growing season. Tom Hoverstad informs me that they are closing in on their wettest calendar year ever. They had 50.46" in 1991. They are at 48.68" presently and counting. We only got a measly 5.22" at the ranch and 7.7" in Bugtussle proper. Water was running over the road by the golf course though so I'll need to take an alternate route home. The good news: Yer squeeze's new flower planter is still safe Del. I even pumped the tires up!  ;)

Dotch, new squeeze?  You must have me mixed up with Reb and his neighbor ladies. 

I still have my regular squeeze, same one for many years. 

But I hear the junkyard a few blocks away is still buying scrap steel, so bring it on.   It'll probably bring enough for a couple of Rapalas and some charcoal.

I think yer dyslexic Del. Can ya help me with the spelling on that one boar? :scratch:

Flooding issues continue to mount. Sounds like the sandbagging effort on Hwy 13 to keep the care center from flooding was for naught. They are evacuating the residents. Also looks like the local meat market is getting nailed. They're putting stuff into a reefer so it will keep but the water looks like it's made its way inside. That really bites because I so appreciate dealing with them and how they've packaged our lamb. Plus they're a really hard working super family. The kids actually know how to work.

You have to be really careful where you drive around here. A lot of roads closed with water not only on them but running to beat hell across them with some places washed out entirely. My pickup didn't get the starter put in it today since the area around the shop is in the water. Think the shop itself is OK but that could change. Water is still rising so driving a '99 Buick Regal through very much of it isn't an option.

Wow!!!  I can't imagine how much of a burden that must be..   About 13 years ago I had straight line winds wipe out over a hundred big trees and wrecked my house but I was able to live in it for awhile.  Every vehicle had damage too.  BUT it was over in a half an hour and I was able to start cleanup.  The water thing is a whole different character.  What a terrible disaster...   Good luck to all.

I've been thru that so many times. My Dad lost his entire store and everything in it the '78 flood here. My heart goes out to those people.

'mornin'! Got rid of the office pest so continuing my role as a go between for flood control issues. Have to chuckle telling well-meaning coffee shop meteorologists how much rain we measured only to hear them say that can't be right, we had to have had more than that. Water is starting to recede although we're still driving around water hazards to get to town. Fortunately we had less rain in the eastern portion of the watershed than we had in 2010 when the last major flooding occurred. Unfortunately soils were wetter to start with so it's still not leaving like someone pulling the plug on a bathtub. So far sounds like the bowling alley survived, the meat market ditto, and the care center maybe. They did put the new starter in the pickup this a.m. so we should be positioned to pull off the Canadian trip.

It stinks in the office this a.m. The guy who rents a corner cubicle decided to defrost his fridge and in the process must've had some packages of fish that leaked goo into the drip pan that in turn overflowed. He just left the mess and when I called him to clean it up, he did a half fast job, put a fan on it so the rest of us could really enjoy it even more and took off. This guy isn't house broken as he has demonstrated several times. Not positive how long ago he started the process but it's pretty nasty in here.

Post by: Dotch on September 23, 2016, 03:25:52 PM
lol...amazingly enough the fridge itself wasn't the main issue. By design all the stuff in the fridge is channeled into a sump and pretty well drains out of it when defrosted. His office is a pig sty so the water + goo that ran on and under the table it was setting on, under various boxes, papers, etc. that soaked some of it up. The rest apparently ran down and under the baseboard judging by the watermarks on the pegboard walls. We got pissed, went down there with a mop, a rag and a bucket of bleach and cleaned up what we could. We opened his window and the front door to let some of the stench out but you can still catch a hint of it wafting through the office. I threw one of those large cushioned envelopes that got soaked up with the putrid cocktail in the dumpster. If he comes back to the office when I'm here, that bad boy is going under the front seat in his car! Jerk!  ;D

Taking a cruise comes to mind after a nap perhaps. As long as Mrs. Cheviot keeps her hands to herself I'll be golden. 😘

Well it rained on and off here all day.  The family and I went shopping for the items we needed for the new pup coming next Friday.  We then went out for dinner at the Olive Garden for some pasta.  This evening we went to the local drive in movie theatre to watch Storks and Sully.  Tomorrow morning we will go to church and hopefully the south wind stops and I can get in the deer stand in the evening.

Found two leaks on the furnace conections in the ice castle. I work in propane with my company besides fertilizer, and we have whats called a sniffer, that detect the slightest leak, even if the nose cant. so had to take apart part of the cabinet housing and goop a few connection. safty first. Had a blast with my son, took him out to do some clay target shooting. He gets easily frustrated due to his aspergers, but on the 3rd shot he ' got it dialed in and was dusting them almost as good as dad, for his second time shooting clays, he it  70-75 percent. That was fun!! got a few more things to do be fore the wife comes back shes been visiting  a girlfreind in st cloud since wensday night. so tis been peacefull around here to say the least, nice break in the routine of life and marRAGE. have a great sunday, Go Vikes!!

Morning gents.  You too Reb...  lol Had to raz you a little since I heard you were getting something rubbed over at the neighbor ladies house.   Please do not send pics.   :-)   Well we had the stroganoff last night and it turned out great.  Along with the cocktails.  Well the wife said I was inhaling it.  I started choking and I am not kidding I thought it may be all over.   I couldn't get my breath and was getting weak.  Finally I got some air and was able to get it back in order.  Like I told the wife I actually felt like I had gone to some spiritual place.  That was to close.  I kept telling the wife lick me,  lick me.   lol  Didn't work.    Well now I am heating up some honey.  I buy it raw from Wilmers Honey in Warroad.  Once it has been pasteurized like in the stores most of the beneficial things are gone.  I buy a gallon at a time.  That is about 12 lbs.  It is usually hard so I put a jag of it in the honey bottle and then on a plate that is in a pan of water on the stove as low of heat as I can.  The plate keeps the plastic bottle from melting, sort of like a double boiler.      It is rainy here too.  Got just shy of an inch last night.  Spose to clear up some but then rain again tonight.  We are pretty soggy here to but not anything like you guys down by the flooding areas.      Speaking of Vikes Boar it is going to be a tough game today.  I still pick the Vikes to win due to my eternal optimism.    ;)  I just can't forget the girl who was in her college dorm room and Cam Newton and his minions walked right into her room looked her in the eye picked up her laptop and walked out the door with it.  I don't think he even got into much trouble for it.  Who knows.   SO I especially like to see the Panthers lose due to that.  Well I am going to get another cup of Java and raw honey...   Then I will go pump the boat out and check the trail camera.  If I have anything cool on it I will post it.

First we went to church this morning and then I watched the first quarter of the game.  Then decided I couldn't watch that any more.  So I turned the game on the radio and proceeded to change the oil on the car and the truck.  In between rains I fertilized the lawn.  With the vehicles pulled out of the garage I decided to clean it out.  Glad the Vicks pulled it out.  We cooked up some stir fry for supper.  The rain kept me out of the deer stand this evening.

Two great days in the woods working on deer stands.  Saturday we checked out about 20 of them and then did another 15 today.  Also made a new trail across a swamp with the new toy.  Argo 8 wheeler with tracks.  So far it looks like the real deal.  I traded my camper for it.

Whew! Finally get a chance to sit down. Did chores and separated a couple little buck lambs from the ewe lamb group. After the rain stopped this a.m. the sun came out so it was time for a cruise in the Stude. Went to Madison Lake to the little watering hole in time for brunch, 3 eggs, hash browns, bacon and toast with a Bloody Mary and beer chaser for $9 including tax. Got home, took a short nap then on to the car club picnic at 4 p.m. One dandy steak and as much other stuff as I could put on my plate later and I was full. Does everybody who's retired eat supper at 5 p.m.?  ;) Almost hit a deer coming out of Beaver Lake park but discovered the brakes do work. Got home to do chores again and Mrs. Cheviot was ahead of me by a few minutes getting out there. She suddenly came back to the house with the dogs. She was all worked up about a skunk sleeping under the trailer in the barn. No problem. Grab my trusty blunderbuss and dispatch said skunk. If you're a skunk, raccoon or a possum, odds of your long term survival are not real good at the ranch. :Hunter:

Morning gang. Slept in until 7:30 today. Lotsa aches and pains from my remodeling stuff. I swear, now I am done...really!  Little chilly in the house, but it felt good. 49* outside. I don't turn the furnace on until I have to pee a hole thru the ice in the toilet bowl. Keep the heat at 64* in winter, it's set there, and that's where it stays. That's just right for me. I gag in these houses that are set at 72* and higher. Reminds me of going to Granny's house. Might as well set out the bowl of peppermints, too. Guess that's why I love ice fishing so much. Cold doesn't bother me, the heat does. Dotch, I thought it was a given every retired person eats at 5:00 PM or sooner...surely you've heard of the early bird special. Besides, that's when Andy Griffith and Barn are on.... ;) A skunk after Mrs. C? I'm surprised Glenn made it down yer way! Have a good day, guys!

64 degrees!!!  That is cold Rebs.  I can see why she would keep her coat on.  Man what a Vikes game.  Boar was hunting and recorded it so I kept giving him teasers as text messages.  Then I started giving him crying faces so he would think they lost.  I don't know if it worked or not.  lol  Ya great to see such a great 2d half.  Zim sure knows how to adjust things at half time.  Fraser was a nice guy but wouldn't change a thing at half even when we were getting our butts kicked.  We sure are losing lots of guys to injuries.  That worries me.  Well we had 1 3/4" of rain over the weekend.  Still drizzly here and will be for a couple more days.  Supposed to have a high of 58 here.  I made a pot of chili yesterday to heat up tonight.  Great weather for chili.  Still only the two fawns and a doe on the trail cam.  Were 2 raccoons before, now there are 4 and they are big and healthy.  Not sure what to do about them.  Well see ya all later.

That's snuggle temp, LPS! Seriously, I can't stand it any higher than that. Winter is pair of jeans and a flannel shirt, (With the sleeves rolled up, hate long sleeves) and I'm good to go. 45* here right now and sunny...and the howling winds from yday have disappeared. Since all my remodeling and other work is done, I have no plans for the day. Lotsa pain pills and let the body heal up a bit. May jump on the red rocket later and mow the lawn. Gonna dig around in the Fall recipe  bin and start earmarking some Fall dishes to make soon. Got some ham bones and lotsa trim chunks in the freezer, and picked up my bags of navy beans and split peas the other day for a few of my soups.  Sure feels good having the house all done and ready for winter. Can't wait to cozy up in the "new" downstairs.  Put in a new furnace 2 years ago, so that's A OK, new 'fridge last Friday, so I'll be warm and have plenty of food storage. Two of the three main things in my world. ;D   Time for cup of cawfee #2..then some eggs and bacon, I think. Have a good one, guys....

Man windy as a son of a gun here.  Looks like winter but is supposed to get warm again in a few days.  Fishing is still not hot on the river by my place yet.  The chili turned out great.  Used some ground pork and some venny/beef burger in it so lots of meat.  Then the wife had bought some hard root beer and we had a root beer float with it.  Was great.  When she bought it she started drinking it and it was just too sweet, just like pop so used it for the floats.  Good excuse to get some ice cream in the house.

great to read the morning musings again...makes me feel normal. 

Question and problem I keep having.  I take photos on my phone and go to post them and get an error message that that type of file isn't accepted.  Some photos taken on my phone will post some won't.  They are all the same sized photos and taken with same phone camera.  Let me know, thanks.

Not a big fan of keeping it too warm meself although it does feel good to come in after chores to a warm house. Warm being a relative term. We run about 64 - 66 inside. We have floor heat in the new part of the house so that helps keep your tootsies from getting cold. If you run the floor heat at 68 or above as we sometimes do when we have family gatherings with babies and little kids around, after they leave we have to turn it back down. It gets just stifling to us anyway.

Harvest on hold for the time being. Still water running out of the sidehill in the pasture below the house and at the kindly neighbor's pasture, two spots where water was running across the bottom yet. Looking out in the field where he had combined before the big rain, lots of water standing so it'll be a few days. Some are already getting their panties in a bundle though. You'd swear it was Thanksgiving already the way some of these guys act.

Unreal Rebs.  It is 3 months till Christmas.  That is 1/4 of a year.  Not even Halloween or Thanksgiving yet.  Sales must be slow to be marketing Christmas already.  Now it is raining here.  Boar I found the formula for comparing propane to electric heat.  1 gallon of propane = 27 Kilowatts of elec.  So last night I looked and I paid 11.9 cents a Killowatt on my last bill.  So propane would have to be $3.21 a gallon to be equal to the price of elec.  Of course that is lights, hot water, stove etc, not much heat.  I have been using propane instead of elec on my dual heat system in the winter and am saving a bundle each month.  What is propane now?  $1.19 a gallon, I haven't checked lately.

LPS, you are getting ripped.   Lake Country Power is 6 cents per kwHr for dual fuel.   11

Did you tell the power company you are dual fuel?  Regular rate is much for for LCP.  13 cents in winter.

Morning guy's.  Cool mornings like this make me want to hang out the orange to get ready for deer camp.  Had more truck problems yesterday.  Fixed my coolant leak which was not the hose but the clamp on the hose which rusted off.  Then the next day I saw some tranny fluid on the cement, coming right from the area I replaced the new hose and clamp.  The line running through the radiator to the tranny radiator was leaking.  So had to replace the whole radiator to fix it since the line runs through it.  Glad I have a great place to bring my truck when needed.  $350 for the whole deal including a oil change.  I've been going there for 10 years.  Honest and very reasonable.  Rare find these days.  They owner doesn't even advertise and now he has two shops.  Word of mouth is the best advertisement.  good luck.
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: LPS on September 28, 2016, 07:37:45 AM
Aha I see that 11.9 was for on peak.  Off peak is 6.4 cents a kilowat which comes to $1.72 for comparable gallon of propane.  Sounds a little more like it.  Still better to use propane at this point.  I think last year in the peak season we were paying around 8 cents for elec.  I did turn on the base board heating in the front room last night.  They were pretty smelly burning off the summer dust.  We have a pellet stove in there that we will fire up when it gets colder out.  Not sure if it save much money but feels good to have it burning.

Morning fellers! Vehicles can be such a pain sometimes, but we are so dependent on them. Yes, hard to find good shops like that. It is a good sign when the advertising is word of mouth. You know they do a good job then, usually. Not much new here, just another day in paradise. Have a good one gents!
Title: Re: Good Morning!!!!!!
Post by: Jerkbiat on September 28, 2016, 07:42:18 AM
LPS, at least with the propane you control when it is on or off. Unlike when the power company cycles the off peak electric.

Mornin'! Getting mentally prepared for a trip to Atikokan tomorrow. My liver is ready after much practice over the summer months! Harvest was "on" again yesterday afternoon in spots. This morning it's "off" following some sprinkles and overcast today. Last night I cut up the tree that fell in the field north of my house so they can combine straight through without worry now. Trying to make myself feel less guilty before heading out but as they say, if you wait until absolutely everything's perfect you'll never go. Be back on Monday night so screw it. Taking along some lamb to grill and my Smokey Joe. There's a half fast gas grill up there but the charcoal unit is a POS like those you find in a city park type with no cover. Their setup is fine for burgers, brats, chops, etc., just simply doesn't cut it when doing a leg.

Heading to the land today.  Plans are to complete all stand work and hunting prep. By Friday we should be done with all the work. Man it takes a lot of time and effort to make the property a special place. Due to the land and cabin addition this year, it obviously took additional time getting things ready.  After the next couple days, its just hunting and relaxing.

Morning, trip to the dentist for a routine checkup.  Woke up this morning and our cat has a bald spot on the back of her neck the size of a silver dollar.  It is wet looking but the skin looks fine.  She seems alright a happy.  Wonder what it is.  The guys were here putting up the new gutters, that look great by the way, I wonder if that stressed her out? I read that things like that can happen to cats.  Ringworm is supposed to be a dry area.  We do the flea thing on the neck every 30 days and she is an inside cat.  Man I hate to have to bring her to the vet.  Other than that the wife is gone for the weekend after today for her annual sisters weekend.  They get together and have a great time.  SO I am thinking big ribeye on the grill and maybe a few libations.   Will keep you posted.

Well the wind was finally out of the correct direction and it wasn't raining so I hit the deer stand.  At 6:30 the nice 8 I posted in the trail cam pics walked by at 15 yards.  My son had to go to church school last tonight so he made me promise I wouldn't shoot anything but the monster we have pictures of so it lived to see another day.  Hopefully not shooting that one will bring good things when the boy is actually in the stand.  Now I heard on the radio the wind is
