MeadowCat Well, I'm going to be working fewer hours for a few weeks (at least). My job has changed so tremendously that I simply don't have enough work to fill up my time right now. I let my boss know that I'm going to take some unpaid time off each week right now for a while until we see how things are going in a couple of weeks. The church is still not open - we're doing virtual services - and I don't know when we will be. We're looking ahead to fall and I think it's going to be different. Even if we open, I think things will have changed. So...who knows.

I do that too--except for the VW's I owned in SoCal--stealing VW's was a big business--they sold for more than either of them cost me new in Baja as Baja buggys.

My first Toyota Tacoma (1983 short bed, two wheel drive) with a $400 canopy ran until it blew an oil pump on a max traffic time on a freeway--could not get over--trashed the engine. But it had over 300,000 miles with only routine service. My second one is what I'm driving now--it's a 1999 also short bed and retired from delivery truck for an Arizona furniture and appliance store (i know that because you can read the faint shadow on the side of the front where the Arizona sun altered the paint color (white). It had about 190,000 miles on it then and I've added not very many more in the 10+ years I've had it--maybe 3 or 4K not showing many dogs in anything more than a few agility trials and being sort of retired.

Given my tendency to keep stuff until it falls apart--if it hadn't been stolen I'd probably still be driving that first (1963) VW--it was 38hp--which meant it could hardly get up the hill going north from Portland to Seattle right after the bridge. And you had to be doing 70mph at the start to hope to be doing 35mph at the top (and that was when that section of I-5 didn't exist--it was Hwy 99 E.)

Gotta' go murder some maples.

dobebug Here's the PNW via Portland (the left side one) weather report--since it's all hotter than the hubs of hell (I always wonder just how hot and where exactly are the hubs of hell) through the midwest and drowning from systems moving from the south on the east coast--I'm sure you'll all enjoy hearing about our partly cloudy dry days (the next three at least) the high today should only be 80 and even I can survive that.

Like Ken and his dog yard, I did get the back yard both mowed and weed whacked the entire perimeter. With Joey the loaners help--that dog be crazy--perfect for those of us are not quite right. And I've come to believe he's part cat hence at least part alien.

In you drag something across the floor he foot slaps it to stop it like kitties do. So his "help" consisted of jumping or slapping the electrical cord attached to the new over powered weed whacker.

His breeder who took him for a walk earlier said they did three miles (or at least she did--he probably did much more--and she found an all up and down trail to walk him on.

He probably put in another 2 or 3 miles running laps in the back yard and figure 8's while I was weed whacking. That did ultimately wear him out.

And when I was mowing the back I realized the big very old cherry was dropping thousands of withered dried out cherries. The little Riobi plowed through all the grass, tough weeds, cherry pits and maple seeds (in abundance this time of year. It chopped the cherries and maple seeds--sounded like popcorn. Since I taught Joey that squirrels were bad things I don't have nearly as many in the yard trying to pick up the cherries.

Good! maybe he'll also keep them from stealing tomatoes eventually.

And I guess it's time to go out and dismantle pieces of the fence to remove the young maples who are trying to grow there.

Later all--Denny, I hope you've mastered the bobbin winding by now--be sure to take pictures of the finished product.

86 here and going up. And Hairy has not been walked. I left the car at the shop last night to get its 180,000 mile checkup done today, and was waiting for the guy's call to tell me the damage.

I knew it needed tires, and oil, filters, etc, but he added...sigh...timing belt. It's been 110,000 miles since it was replaced last, so I guess it is due
I wish I knew someone that made custom masks. A Doberman mask would be cool. I already have Doberman decals on my SUV, and have Doberman t-shirts, so a mask would be the ticket.

180,000 miles...what do you have, a Toyota? My Escape is within a few road trips of 100,000 miles and although it's still running great (knock on wood) I'm starting to get nervous. Every now and then I think about selling it private and then getting another vehicle but then I tell myself, one more year, plus I really don't want car payments. I hate owing people money.

TNfisher Just got the email from my boss that I'll still be teleworking next week.


I replied, "I can do this until April 2022 when I plan on retiring"
He replied, "Ha Ha"

Early June, the plan was to bring 50% of us back for a few weeks, then all of us. I got to go back for 2 weeks, and didn't care for it after being at home for so long. But since then, the cases in TN have been going up and have been going through the roof the last week, so for now, our office is at around 50% and my boss has to schedule people to work/telework to allow plenty of spacing between the people that are at work.

As I said before, I was born for this. I have no real need or desire to socialize, or listen to grown men try to outdo each other with their BS stories day after day or listen to them talk about World of Warcraft LOL. Here at home I have my wife and Mocha, which is pretty much all this boy needs

I always thought quilting was an oxymoron.

Piecing is my favorite part of quilting.

You'll have to show us the finished products!

I'm envious of your quilting skills. I wish I had the time or inclination to do it. I've always been impressed by those who do...I love beautiful quilts. Some day I'm going to commission one that's exactly how I want it to be!

So why did you think you could get your Mercedes through that intersection?

Good luck...hopefully you can figure it out. Most machines aren't too complicated to wind the bobbins.

StrykersPerson So, my new attorney called me back and gave me all the statutes and sections. Then he told me I would have to compelling evidence to actually see the damage before he puts it before a judge.

Advised me not to shoot goats, which I have already shot at. He's going to send them a threatening letter at my expense, $75, And then we go from there.

Now I have to buy game cameras?

Stupid neighbors are going to pay for my game cameras too!

Can you all tell that I am fed up?

Well? Where there is thunder there is lightening. Water and electricity don't mix.

Of course, my sewing machine could get me, too.

Funny thing! I bought a new TV for my sewing room. I can get all these weird channels that my other TVs can't get, but it can't get my local stations that I love so much.



Guess I should start watching these new channels. Maybe I could figure out how to use a rotary dial telephone!

LMAO

I made myself laugh!

Nothing exciting going on around here yet.

Just a lot of rumbles.

Go to my sewing room and conquer the bobbin. Surely it will come back to me.
