I've been out of touch with ehMac for a while and things have changed but I know that our appreciation for the man will always be. Cheers old fellow. I am sure the gale of wind outside is just a reminder that you're still having great conversations wherever you are. RtC

Hello, old friend.

It's been a helluva year. In February hell froze over, temps never left the deep freeze & we had a coupla feet of Globull Warming dumped on us. Ended up a late spring, so late planting & going to be a late harvest. Most just finishing seeding this week.

Lost two in March, wounds still pretty fresh. As always, going to take some time.

Settin' on the step with a breakfast beer this mornin', a pint of Guinness. I know, I know. Don't have any Scottish beer in the fridge right now, though. Not one I reach for often but had a beer tasting last week & this one was left over. It's good. To you, my friend!

Clear blue skies today, neighborhood quiet for the most part. S'pose to be a hot one, 29°. Going to have to hide out in the nice, cool basement with a couple more of these. A few birds singing. Lawn looks good backlit by the sun, despite the thin patches. Have a coupla trees that need a few dead branches cut down and we lost a plum tree over the winter that will need complete removal. May save the wood from that one, see how it smokes some ribs or a brisket.

Inherited a new cat, Fluffy, and guess what? Yep, he's fluffy, the big hairball. Kind of a lovable cuss, quite conversational, he walks around muttering & grumbling most of the time, all the while shedding like a sheepdog. The vacuuming schedule had to be doubled since he arrived! The other two get along with him for the most part now but it took a while.

Beer's about gone, time to take care of a few things around the house & yard on the honey-do list.

Take care, amigo. Until next year.

Hello, old friend.

Shaping up to be a beautiful day here, sun's bright, sky's blue, not a cloud anywhere. High of 21° predicted, should make for good watching of the littlun's slow pitch game this afternoon.

No beers this morning (meds) but I'll throw back a shot of brown moo with breakfast.

Hit the yard work hard this spring, finally got rid of those 3 eyesore stumps. Two came out relatively easy, a little digging & a chain/tow rope attached to the 'Burb, out they popped. The third one was a bugger, tho. That took some semi-major excavation, an axe to chop off some recalcitrant roots and some major hits with the 'Burb. At one point the tow rope slipped off the chain & slammed into the back of the 'Burb. The dent it left will be a little reminder...

Decided to get a little healthier, too. Lost some weight, eating better, out getting some exercise regularly. This driving a desk thing, I dunno. I miss the physicality of years past. Need some of that now.

At any rate, you take care, mi amigo. Talk to you in a year or so.
