Morning boys.  Light rain here now and like JB said we got 1/2" last night.  We have a 5,000 btu in our bedroom and it can freeze us out.  We have a 10,000 btu one in the other end of the house and together they keep us comfortable even when it is real hot and muggy out.  Both are 110 units.  I may be off by a BTU or two but that is close.  I don't know what I will do today.  I am actually hoping they call so I can go pick up my new boat.  Other than that I will just try to stay out of trouble.  Have a good one boys.

As I have mentioned we have another fox raising her pups here.  The other ones are grown and gone already.  With the leaves on the trees it is hard to see the new family but they are here.  SO I let the dogs out at 4 am for a pee break.  Sammy can't hardly get up steps anymore so he uses the ramp I made for that purpose.  Well he just got up the ramp and I opened the door and I hear the fox yap.  Off he goes like a 3 year old.  Buddy is ahead of him.  SO I just sit down and waited for them.  Took a couple of minutes and they came back in proud that they took care of the fox problem.  LOL  I am sure the fox is sitting in the woods watching us.  LOL  Good to see Sammy still has some pep left in his step.

Morning boys. 67 and raining here. Heading for upper 80s again today. We got a 1/2" of rain overnight. That will be good for the grass. I think there is a chance for off and on rain most of the day today. Boy it was sure a steamy one yesterday afternoon. I was wishing that we had AC in the house last night. Told the wife I would be willing to put in a mini split right in the bedroom and she said no. Central air only. Well, we have a slab on grade and no duct work. No AC I guess then. Well, just another day in the salt mines. Have a good one boys.
We have hot water heat and no ducts.  They were able to put it all in the attic with outlets in ceiling.  Our son has a two story older house and that house also has a unit in the attic, with a big pressure blower  and small, like 1 1/2 inch tubes to little outlets in the walls.

If you have a one story house, the attic air is easy to put in.

Mornin' gang! 71 at choretime heading for a high in the mid-80's. Cloudy with a light breeze so that helps. Put the AC on last nite for the 1st time this season. Made a run to Owatonna for a filter first. We probably could've made it another nite or two opening the windows but the humidity was starting to get oppressive. We don't keep it set real low, 76, just enough to dry the air out. Put central air in when we remodeled and haven't regretted it. Was an easy call with forced air already in place. Ruby sure likes it & that's the main thing.  :cool:

JB I have baseboard electric heat, means no furnace. I had an AC installed, kinda a wall mount but has a compressor. works pretty good, and has a heat pump and can heat the house until it gets 32 degrees outside is when they recommend no longer using it.

Round 1 was the 1st of April to the end of May. :scratch: Think they told me when I was there on 6/6  that they opened again on the Wednesday after Memorial Day which was ~ the 27th, I believe.

People weren't helping the cause by not social distancing. May just be hurrying up the inevitable.  HEY a buddy of mine was at his cancer Dr. earlier this week.  The talk there was how a new virus has been spreading and it also came from China.  Different than Covid I guess.  Sorry to even bring it up.  BUT I got my new boat today.  SO I am going out with a bang if all of this worldly stuff destroys us.

The bars seem to be the place not to be around Mankati. Sounds like St Cloud is about the same. Two joints in Mankato were the transmission areas for well over 100 cases.

funny you posted this..... :scratch: :scratch: yea I got mine took long enough!!!!!!! :doofus: :doofus: :doah: :rotflmao:

so he says I got a package of venny brats something or another, and and a pack of bulk brat seasoned bear meat. so, since my wife wont touch bear meat, except in pepper sticks, hot dogs or summer sausage, I figured heading up north by myself would be a good time to try this.

so, I text boar to ask his opinion on the best way to cook it. he said fry or grill. grilled that up....THE DOG WOULDNT EVEN EAT IT!!!! :shocked: :doah: :banghead: AND i had to pick our porqupine quills yet!!!!!!!!!!! :confused: :crazy: :wowza: :embarrassed: :embarrassed:

From what we gathered at HH today, them being closed was NOT because the state ordered it but 'cause they had an employee  :scratch: who came down with it. No new state ordered restrictions here for the businesses as far as anybody we talked to knew of..........................................yet. This place is newly remodeled with 2 dentists & at least 10-12 assistants with about the same # of chairs.

We had at least 3 people get it at work, all from the same bar. I thought they would test everybody but I guess not.

I just got word today that the plant in Hagar city had a confirmed case. They shut the plant down the rest of the day and 2nd shift and are supposedly going to thoroughly clean it tonight.

Thought maybe since I was in for my annual blood letting last week Mayo would've tested me with their vaunted serology test. Must've figured I wasn't worth it. :confused: Knew about the 1 bar in Mankato a couple weeks ago as my friend's son was exposed. Tested negative so that was a relief. Was a wedding locally where some people got infected. Rumor was it came from someone from AZ who attended the wedding. One lady I know was hospitalized & several people tested positive but were asymptomatic. See? Another reason to avoid weddings as if I needed one!  :tut:

Ya, not sure what the thought process was there roony. This gets back to animal science 101. Want to increase the odds of animals getting respiratory diseases? Crowd them together in an enclosed area. Having a large wedding reception, much of it inside a farm building? Worst of it was there were elderly relatives who if they were there & contracted it would've likely been dead meat given their underlying conditions.

This whole bar scene worries me. That concern is being borne out by who's getting it: younger adults who seem to think things are back to normal. We went to the bar & grill in Clarks Grove last week. The bar itself was crowded with younger people yelling, shouting and laughing it up. We were distanced from the bar but was glad to swallow my meal quickly & get out of there. Food was OK but the atmosphere sucked. Won't be going back anytime soon.
