Well, my neighbor Kyle put one hand on the rocks and lifted them up so I could roll them into place. Amazing.

So now I have only one more set of big rocks to set. I really need to get my hands on a case of Yuengling Beer for him. They don't sell it in Missouri

Busy packing up camp today. All the food and drinks for a family of 8 comes home. I have 2 golf carts loaded up. The outdoor furniture is put away. The kitchen is tarped. Propane tanks disconnected and loaded.

I went hunting with my oldest son for a couple hours while she who must be obeyed packed up the groceries. We all headed home an hour drive away and unloaded the first load. I drove back out to finish draining the systems and finish up a few things.

In the morning I finish winterizing and bring in the slides. Lots of great memories this season.

I talk to myself to get an expert opinion.

Feeling like I've been hit by a truck.

Back to back 12 hour shifts is proving to be killer.
Last night, several of my sweet little darlings were off the wall.
Patience is a virtue, right?? Lol

I'm off for a couple of days now.

I remember that feeling after a week of hell shifts when I worked with the mentally and physically challenged in care homes. We always dreaded working nights on a full moon. Lmao. Some crazy stuff happened there.

Up and at er at 6am (damn internal alarm clock). My last official night at camp. Everything outside is done and tarped. Water system is winterized. Food and essentials are packed. Camper is cleaned. Just need to pull in the slides and remove the battery. It's a sad time of year but we did have a great summer despite covid.

I talk to myself to get an expert opinion.

Oh yes, the full moon thing for sure!

Before I retired I was field service engineer. On average I drove 200 to 300 miles a day, so I can confirm from that perspective, a full brings out the "best" in drivers.

Not much today. With the cold damp weather, my back and legs were in full protest. I did make it to the garage for 5 minutes before the rain hit. Otherwise I've been working on my "groove" in my chair most of the day.

I did swap out guitars earlier (I have 8). I like to change out the one sitting beside the chair for fresh new sound every now and then. I did some neck and bridge adjustments to one to improve the string action and changed the batteries in the built-in pick-ups on two others that I need for this weekend as I'm starting back at the church for the winter. We have a new sound system at the church which requires me to be able to plug in my guitar for the livestream sound. We'll also all have ear pieces to be able to hear each other over the system as we play. Should be interesting.

I talk to myself to get an expert opinion.

Didn't do much today. I did some running around town and had lunch, Wings and a beer, at Cowburners on my own. My wife is having trouble with an infected tooth and can't eat solids. She's on drugs to get the infection under control. The dentist can't do much until that happens.

Oh, I did get my piggly wiggly problem taken care of. At 02:30 on Tuesday morning after 5 long nights and many hours of lost sleep, she and I were in the same place at the same time. Lots of strange things about it. It was a lone sow which you don't usually see. You sometimes see a lone boar but the sows usually stick together in bunches or small groups. She was huge and fat, in the 250# to 300# range. She had the feral hog coloring but not the usual feral hog body shape. She looked like a lop eared domesticated pig. All I had at that time was a 12 gauge shotgun and I didn't want to lose her while going for a rifle so I took the shot. I got her broadside at about 25 yards with "00" buck. I may have rocked her world but I didn't rock her much. She squeeled, did a 360 and took off never to be seen again. I don't know what effect buckshot will have on something that fat but I couldn't find her next morning. I doubt that I'll ever see her again but at least I can get back to sleeping nights.

Not much again. Leg spasms in both legs have left me immobile. I did get to the city to pick up some new filters for the well pump. And a trip to home depot to pick up wood for my next project; a 6ft tall shelving unit with a printer stand for the missus to sit beside her desk as she will be working from home for the foreseeable future.

I didn't do much either. The weather forecast was for a cold front to come through with rain and high winds at around 10 o'clock this morning. Then it was supposed to arrive at noon ... nope. It finally got here about 2:30 this afternoon. We didn't get a drop of rain but that wind sure blew. I hope that it blew hard enough to clear the leaves off the driveway otherwise that's a job for tomorrow.

Morning everyone! I'm headed to my buddy's place to make a run of sausages again this morning.

We're getting a mixture of rain and snow today. There! I said it! The dreaded "S" word. Lmao. I'm looking forward to it this winter as I plan on having some fun on the new to me snowmobile this winter.

I picked up a new motocross style helmet yesterday for the side by side to protect my face in the cold. I had just those half helmets before. Good for the summer time but not so much when the temperature drops.

Gym this morning and then into Council Bluffs to help a friend, who is a disabled Veteran, then to a gathering to protest in front of Planned Parenthood, then to a gun show and then to a fundraising nacho dinner the American Legion to raise money for the honorable group 22 Veterans Suicide Awareness Association. Maybe stop at The Driftwood, which is a friendly neighborhood bar to BS with people.

My Christmas tree arrived from Amazon yesterday, so I assembled it and put it in the corner to see how it would look there, then realized I need a small extension cord.
It has to be centered at the corner to keep my OCD from kicking in.


I've stored it standing up in the hall closet.
That's where it will stay until I pull it out again on Thanksgiving, and finish decorating it.

Today there isn't a thing in the world to do, but I'll think of something.

Not a bad day overall considering the weather. It wasn't too terrible this morning so I loaded up the side by side and headed to the bush to look for more birds. 2 hours later I had a limit and filled the back of the side with firewood. Every little bit helps to keep the garage woodstove going throughout the winter.

Since camping season is done, I started back at the church playing music. They've invested in new lights and a new sound system. That means I'm now plugged in wirelessly with a cordless jack in the guitar, a wireless headset for a microphone and a wireless ear piece to hear everyone playing.

I talk to myself to get an expert opinion.

I cut down my last fruit tree today, a peach. It's been in dire straights all year. I kept trimming off the branches as they died in the hope that it might recover but it wasn't to be and now it is gone. I kept some of the wood for the smoker. I don't know what the squirrels are going to do now that they have no fruit trees to pillage. I only have the pecan trees left and they didn't produce worth a flip this year which means, according to the folklore, that next year will be a bumper crop.

Tomorrow? I don't know. With super sow gone I may start to do more permanent repair to the yard that she tore up. Oh! I did find her with the help of three buzzards and two dogs. She ran about 30 yards from where I shot her her into a clump of scrubby trees and expired there. I tried to get in there and drag her out but it was impossible.
