So you don't like the dually trucks now?
Oh goodness, we like our duallys.  Those won't go away.   The cam is for me.  Its way easier to navigate in big city then the dually.    :)

Of a Sunday. Skies are clearing from their clouds of rain.. still a mix of grey to white blocking blue, but none the less, they are clearing.   Squirrel on the feeder, hummers coming in and out .  Bout 6 geese were here cleaning up the dropped seed from the bird feeders. Typical morning.  Might take a bath in bug spray n go fetch some black raspberry. I don't know yet.  They are just starting to come in, next weekend might be better. 
I have to do more wine bottles up for Christmas in July.  I spray paint them then glue some decorations of the sparkly variety, then , hit em with clear coat.  Slap some flowers in the top and a centerpiece is born.  Now the beauty part is I discovered those cheap solar lights at Walmart,  well they fit perfectly into the top.  Hence an outdoor table light.   Just enough light to use but not enough to attract bugs. 
Call of the day, 50/50 rain, with a 100% chance of step n sweat.
Fun stuff lol.

I see your having a R/C/Weekend.  :lol: 

We just got over 2 days of 20 to 30 mph winds yesterday was only 81º but it is coming up.  Monday through Friday it calling for 100º then dropping off to the mid high 90º. 

We have dropped down form 30lbs of bird feed a month from this winter to just under 10lbs a month.   Seeing more yellow Wild Canaries and wild Bunny Rabbits this year.  There more Bunny Rabbits then Jack Rabbits coming around this year.  They do like the green grass.   :lol:

They say "if the corn growing in the fields is knee high by the 4th of July, the farmers are going to have a good year."   Most of the corn around me is now 5' tall and rising.  The second cutting of Alafia is being done for those that cut it 4 times a year.  Looks lake there well be a more two crop fields this year then last year.

Yes, it was a do nothing kind of weekend.  We are doing well with the feed ourselves.  I think the babies are all out of the nests now so it should be normal.  Hummers are hitting like crazy but the Orioles have slowed.  We do everything we can to keep the gold finches, they eat skeeters lol.
I ended up pitting 5 1/2 cups of tart cherries,  then went out and got the first round of black raspberries.  I will have to go out early next Saturday before the campers come.  It won't be a problem collecting mass quantity.
A/c will go off tomorrow. No more 90 degree step n sweat to deal with...
Well must go check the gardens , do some watering, run an errand, mow and get some work done...
Busy week, busy busy week.

Happy 4th!   I am sitting here, with my coffex. Pretty much just looking at it.
Had a nice weekend.  I can't say it was quiet lol.  Been listening to all varieties of fireworks for 2 days.  We hitched a ride with friends Saturday and watched the fireworks at skydive.  Started with divers in glowing gear Falling from the sky with plumes of white.  Ended with a royal show for a long while all to the music of Pink Floyd from the pontoon.  Afterwards, we all came here, made fire and hung out. Yesterday was usual day.  On the chilly side for sure.  Lira and I had to weave thru the many tents of camping canoers.   I was told there was 200 of them. 200 canoes, 2 people per canoe, that's about 400 people camping.  We don't leave with that many. Last night , well all day yesterday I experienced my first static issue.  Why, who knows, but it wasn't fun. I slow cooked ribs in the crock because Himself wanted to do as little as possible. No big deal, he needs a break. Seemed a good idea. Until I tried to pick the small crock up.
Never have I felt such you're going to throw up pain in my whole life.  Mid back down my right leg wth is this spastic nonrelenting grip of your going down pain.
Ugh, he helped me move. He helped me because I couldn't.  I must admit, I took a Norco.   Ice n,heat, it took a few hours.  The fireworks were going off, me n Lira stayed up here.  I fell asleep but woke up when he came in, bout I don't know.  But I could stand up . Without assistance. This morning I woke up with massive headache, stomach jacked big.  Then proceeded to heave my guts.  Guess who isn't eating another norco. Ever.
Think I'll get a move on.  Slowly but surely...
Have a nice 4th. 
So it goes another banner weekend. Lol

Heal fast, milady. I've crawled on hands and knees from lower back pain, myself. At the end, it's neither fun nor dignified, and as we both know, dignified is....ah....well, at any rate, heal soon!

Yea buddy I hear that.  We are home now.  Definetly not having a good day..but its gettin better.  I may look like a gorilla walking but I can do it. Throw in 4 of the common side effects of norco, dam I offically hate that stuff.  But I talked to my bud, a surgical nurse and she let me know for my size, that carp should be out of my system sometime in the night. 
Tomorrow will be better...  Thats my story n I'm stick in to it. :sleep:

Sooooo Melady, is mother nature tell you also to slow down some?   I did a BBQ for 300 people on June 24 and I was on my feet for 15 hours on a concrete floor.  Next time I will take some time to sit down.  LOL

I am mowing ever third day yet.  It takes about 2 hrs. on a John Deere lawn tractor with a 48 cut.  Watering the yard and flowers in all areas  for 1 hr. each everyday.  My water pressure is running at 60 psi when watering.  That's great for a 500' well.

I haven't had to water much... The rains have made mowing fun.  Got blasted last night starting about 3 am... Its gone for the moment but they say tonight thru Thursday night we are going to get more...  Good for the little gardens.... I should be weeding but, I have the wee one.  Made her a tent in the living room and she crawled right in and fell asleep...

All quiet here.  Fog has blanketed the area.  Birds are singing and doing their thing.  I hope to get out and see if there are any good pics to take while walking Lira.
It's also that weekend here at the river.  Christmas in July.  Last night we put up the 40 x 60' tent.  Got the tent on the flatbed we use for the band.  Umm, then it rained. Lol. No,rain today though.  After I walk my diva Princess, it will be time to seriously decorate for the party.  We are going to have a good crowd, the Temps will be perfect.  Won't be suprised if we go over 150.
Guess I better get to it... I need to run to town n see about a few additions to my Christmas costume. Oh n get some dog foods. Lol

Good to hear from you. It has been awhile. Nothing really new here as we continue to disarm liberals.
