'twas my day off, went out with the gals for breakfast, then to shop for groceries, came home and puttered around, decorated the new abode bathroom-wise, things from Hobby Lobby-mostly nautical - wood and cast iron stuff!

Napped with the cat on the sofa while watching Goodfellas, then the news.
Made baked flounder for dinner with lemon butter,tarragon and scallions, wild rice and peas.

It's been a GREAT day if I do say so.

Well I'm not quite as ambitious of a drinker, but I'll admit there is a small glass of 115 proof Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Bourbon sitting next to me as I type.

I've been staining wood for the ukulele kit. I think its probably done with the staining? Maybe.
The top is stained walnut, the body sides & back, as well as the neck, have been stained with a couple coats of walnut plus a couple coats of red mahogany. Its what I had. Since this kit was only $39 it didn't make much sense to go buy new stain. But I wanted 2 tone and the back and sides look sort of like rosewood, not quite dark enough, might have to do a couple more coats? Back & sides contrast nicely with the warm medium brown color of the top.
Also sprayed a bunch of poison ivy with weed killer, mixed extra strong. Hope that kills it. 4 gallons worth of spraying.

Built a 'rabbit cage' to surround a rabbit nest that is in the dog's yard.
Mommy bunny made a tactical error building her nest in an area where 4 dogs frequent. I know 3 of the baby bunnies, maybe 4 are dead. There is at least 1, and maybe 2, that are still snuggled in the nest ... which is now surrounded by a cage to keep the dogs out of the nest. Can't help any bunny that wanders out of that cage, hopefully they make it to the woods (50' away) at a time when the dogs are NOT outside.
Bought a couple of Target gift cards for some of my fencing students that have graduation parties coming up.

This evening is going to be a family relaxation time watching a movie (yet to be determined) on Netflix.

Just happy to be home sweet home.
Got a call at work today from my sister in law telling me my brother fell off a ladder and broke his leg, so I'll try to make it to the hospital in the morning to see him.
He thinks he's still Superman.

Other than that, I had a good day.
It's so nice coming home and being by myself again with Mr. Lightning waiting here.
Never mentioned being alone when Gretch was still with me, because she was special and I sure never felt alone.
Never thought I'd get a cat again either (Steve and I had Bianca), but I love him and he keeps me entertained.

Here is a picture of my dining room table with a floral arrangement.
Making it my own pretty place little by little.

Made my morning run in to town for my lottery ticket and more Band Aids. Damn but those chiggers got me again and I needed to cover up the bite sites. It's OK, I got them yesterday. I sprayed 250 gallons of insecticide on the yard. I swear that I could hear the little buggers "croak".

I piddled around putting out some more rocks and put my new mini water pump together, thanks Bob. The hose barb on the discharge hose was cracked. Rather than mess with Generac, I may run in to Tractor Supply or Ace tomorrow and get a new one.

My wife had to go in to town early evening so I took the opportunity to get out the ladder and replace an outside security light around the house that had burned out. She's banned me from climbing ladders unless they are the platform variety or she asks me to do it????. I thought that she wouldn't notice but I was wrong. Ah well, she'll forgive me tomorrow ... or the day after ... or perhaps never. Women and elephants have a lot in common.

It's so hot and humid here that working outside right now isn't a whole lot of fun.

Got up early and walked to Jack - In the Box (fast food chain in the west) got a terrible breakfast. Couldn't get ice and I thought it was just me (I can't figure out their new pop machine). I asked and was told it didn't have ice.
So the guy got me ice that normally goes to drive through customers.
Then they got my order wrong.
Then when I did get it I got a half warm croissant.
I did take the survey I the website.
And these are people that want 15 bucks an hour.
Then I came home and did a load of laundry.
Checked my email and saw an alert message from the bank. I called them and was told it was nothing. Which makes me wonder that if it was nothing why did they send me an alert?
Then I noticed that one of my towel cupboards was falling off so I had to take it off and fix it.
I noticed that my cats had barfed all over.
That's what cats do -Barf, it doesn't mean they are sick.
Barf, track litter & one pees all over. Not good pets.
I don't even have snow here and probably should have bought a snow cat instead.

I suppose that I better go get ready for church. After that it's lunch and a visit to the M-I-L in the nursing home.

This afternoon I need to sting trim along the driveway and around the garden. I don't know how much of that I'll get done. It's been so hot and humid here lately, it's been miserable. This summer is shaping up to be a real booger.

I don't know. We haven't seen it for a couple of days.

Woke up this morning to thunder and pouring rain. That'll put the kybosh on my plans for today. I was going to do the string trimming that I didn't do yesterday. I still have to dig out the trailer, put the bush hog on the little tractor and load everything up so my wife can mow her beloved library annex on Tuesday.

Returned an unassembled 5 drawer dresser to IKEA. Bought it for Mel's new apartment a couple weeks ago. Found a much nicer dresser, already assembled, with a very minor defect, for less money than the IKEA kit.

Then went to Chinatown in Chicago. Spent about 3 hours there. Great lunch. Then we went junk shopping, stopped off at a BBQ place and bought a duck to bring home. Also stopped at a Vietnamese Pho restaurant and bought 3 different Pho soups. So its going to be oriental dinner tonight too.

Walked the dogs when we got home. The puppy can't walk as far as we think he can, started to get tired and wanted to nap on the side of the road. He's passed out now.

Physio then a whole lot of nothing. Had a couple naps. Rough day today. Legs nearly gave out on me going down 2 steps. Had to sit for 15 minutes on the steps to regain my strength.

Had to take the mower deck to be repaired today. One of the front support brackets broke due to a chain reaction of failures due to a piss poor design by Cub Cadet.

One of my good friends at the Spring & Chassis Shop took care of me. I got it back home and remounted back on the Cubbie just before the sky opened up and started raining.

Three days ago my neighbor decided to buy a Cub Cadet and get rid of his Deere John because he says mine always works and never fails. He jinked me.

Funny thing you mention riding mowers. Looks like I'll be getting one this weekend. My grampa had one he barely used. My brother ended up with it after he passed. Now that my brother moved to a smaller place he has no use for it. And somewhere along the way my dad picked up a new snowblower attachment that I'll be mounting. I really don't need a riding mower but figured I may as well grab it as we are looking for a bigger place with at least a couple acres of yard.
