Jimbo, did your cat turn out ok? I know it's late, but I've been there. Had one of my favorite cats die on one of my favorite boots. Buried it with her. I wish you and your cat the best.


Hey.

Just now saw your post. Unfortunately, she passed away a week ago yesterday (Saturday) morning.

Did an RIP thread.

Thanks for your thoughts, though.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I've been a good boy again today, f*ck the pain! I have things to do!

I cleaned out a couple hundred pounds of crud, stuff left behind from firewood, from the back of my truck.  I let it get wet! I put the snowblower in the shed. Added some StaBil and ran the carb out of gas.

We still have to sew a repair on the bigger part of the boat cover! Ouch

I raked the leaves away from the front of the house, cleaned the remaining hosta plants.

Put that stuff in one of my big trash cans.  I need to contact our local landfill.  I have about 5 bags of water softener salt.  I have no idea how to dispose of this.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Spread it evenly all over your front lawn like fertilizer.

The grass will love it and turn thick, lush and green!!!



Seriously!!!!

Save it for winter & salt your driveway when it snows.  Or make the world's largest margarita...  Big smile

I've been slowly getting some of my work done around here. I mowed the front yard yesterday. Before I did that I checked the tires on the tractor and tried to get one of the blades off so I could sharpen it. I put a block of wood against the blade to try to stop it from turning while I try to loosen the bolt.

I have a piece of pipe that I use to add leverage to my 1/2 drive breaker bar, I couldn't find it.  The damn blade was just bending anyway!

I've never seen so many dandelions, Mama was kind enough to pickup some weedkiller today when she was out.  I filled one trash can with leaves from the old dog run, I'll let them dry out a little more and get the rest tomorrow.

My yard fills up with Spider Wort. Hard stuff to kill. Best way to get rid of it is to just dig each plant up by the roots. Lotta work, though.

I also get a lot of Biden's Alba. Not hard to kill, but because so many bees and butterflies land on it, I don't like spraying poison on it.

I like spider wort.  Was it the kind with the lime green leaves and purple flowers?

Purple flowers but I think the leaves are darker green.

I like it too and so do the bees.

My back yard is full of it and I just let it grow.

The Bibens Alba attracts a lot of butterflies do I let that grow in back too.

In the front I have to keep it all under control.

The general at an AFB in Indiana my dad was stationed at absolutely hated dandelions & would send out hundreds of men to pull them up.  Not one small yard, but the whole frikkin' base...  LOL

Dandelions are supposed to have several health benefits.

Making tea from the roots is supposed to be good for high blood pressure and the leaves can be eaten, too.

Do you remember that you're supposed to blow on a dandelion and make a wish.  I know they're technically weeds, but I like dandelions and think they're pretty!

It's a freaking beautiful day in the neighborhood here today, how things can change in less than a month.





Our latest 'toy'... It's a freaking ghost!

Today's the 55th anniversary of my First Holy Communion.  Same for my cousins Barry and Joey.  Joey's dead now.  He died of alcohol in his 30s.  Maybe too much Communion wine (or Communion vodka) for him.
 
Here's me, May 18th 1963:

That kid is looking up at Jesus's sombrero falling off...  LOL

Went up on the neighbor's roof today to patch nail holes under the shingles.  They've got a leak & the son-in-law has tried 3-4 times to find it.  But wouldn't you know it, first time in a week it hasn't rained, so have to wait to see if it worked...  LOL
