I slept for 8 straight hours last night.
That's amazing lol
Today, nothing much really.
I considered calling Ty to see if I can please come to see the girls.
I'm not allowed until "all that sh!t" clears up at work.
That's understandable, but I sure do miss them.

I piddled all week-end. The rain started yesterday, all day, so I didn't do anything. It's still drizzling this morning so it looks as nothing will be achieved today either. I have to run in to town later on for some shopping but that'll be it for today. It's supposed to rain tomorrow as well.

Howdy folks,
not much to do today because of the rain. When I got up this morning my rain gauge was topped out at 5 inches. I emptied it and now it is showing 2 more inches and it is still coming down. Good old nothing day!!

Just for the visual, I put the cannon on the trailer.
There's just waaayyy too much suspension on this thing.
With the barrel on it, it's just wobbly as hell.
I'll probably have to remove the coils, or maybe cut them down some.

I've been looking around for some info or forums to discuss this thing, but of the few I've found, discussion of homemade cannons, or anything outside of actual to spec reproductions seems to be frowned on.

The gym this morning. Then going to a friend's house. He's a disabled Veteran. Going to buy him a few things he wants.

A fund raiser for a friend. She is running for state rep. And a NRA meeting after that.

Bill, hope you didn't have other damage. The trees are bad enough.

Nothing exciting today other than a whole lot of yard work. Drained cleaned with baking soda and water drained again and filled the golf cart batteries to freshen them for winter. Built a dropped hitch for the Jacobsen mower to be able to haul the lawn sweeper around to pick up dead grass and leaves before winter.

Hauled out the snowmobile trailer. Washed the boat. Removed the batteries then backed it in under the carport attached to the shop. I love having that. No worrying about tarping anything up and it's protected from the sun rain and snow. In the spring I only have to haul the boat out and reinstall the batteries.

Man, you have my sympathy.

Today? I piddled around some but basically it was a diesel hauling day. I store my diesel in drums down in the barn. The transfer tank in the bed of the truck only holds 55 gallons so I had to make two trips to get everything filled up again. What surprised me was that red diesel was only $1.70/ gallon, normal diesel was $2.00/gallon. I may have to get a couple more drums. It's not going to stay that low forever. Anyhow, right now I've got my diesel stocks built back up so I can last another 6 months or, more likely, a year. I got it all stabilized and treated so I'm ready for whatever Greg Abbott throws at us next.

Going to the lake camp tonite. All the kids are coming but, they cannot come until Saturday morning. So Grampa gets to set up the tents and chairs, chop firewood and prepare the camper, and the sailboat for sleeping.

It's supposed to be a beautiful day on Saturday which works out for the Walnut day Fair in Stockton. Lord only knows want useless trinkets, furniture's and lawn ornaments I will have to haul home. But I do have the One Ton Dodge.
And just so I can use PG's word, There is "nowt" I can do about it.



Sunday may bring rain again. Hope it holds off 'til I get home.
