How is the resistance of white oak posts to termites, which are problem in this area?

It's good Ruby Red has the extra leaf spring, which will be needed if you keep puttin' down those triple scoop Turtle Carmel Fudge cones!
BURN!

LOL!

He burned you Beau.

TNfisher Yes, I'm a plant nerd and have no life.

Our Crocosmia are finally about to bloom!

Honeysuckle

One of the superbells in my wife's container

Our Angel Trumpet is also blooming...earlier this year than in previous years

This is what it looked like when we transplanted it from a pot to the ground back in early June

This morning (that's a 6-foot fence). Those with sharp eyes may notice we extended the flower bed over to the left by adding more blocks, which is always something I enjoy doing in the middle of July

And a random bee...I REALLY have to watch Mocha now because she's always going over to the flower pots and sniffing the bees, and trying to catch them in mid-air.

I was wondering that, too.

I had a phone interview with a recruiter today and when she said it was downtown "in office" I declined any further movement forward.

Yikes!

Job hunting sucks!

LaDi, Sounds like a perfect two-of-a-kind to me!

Did you make smitten Scotty jealous with stories of you past rock star BF "entanglements" (latest PC word being used in media)

Maybe, you both missed your calling in the sales profession?

Also that it is "light in weight, short coupled and perfectly balanced" and that its steel frame is far superior to heavy cast iron. How heavy is a cast iron mower? I think my little Toro is about 80 pounds.

The stats show that the smaller "light-weight" mower tips the scales 206 pounds. That's one strong lady mowing in a dress with her heels on.

And "short coupled?" I know what a short-coupled horse is, but in a mower? Wiki says this: "Short-coupled aircraft, an aircraft with a relatively short distance between the wing and empennage. This can lead to pilot-induced oscillation" I would be oscillating too, though rather irregularly, if I had to push a 206 pound mower with a 20" cutting swath back and forth enough to mow a 4 acre lawn.

Mel, I believe the riding "lawn Sulky" attaches to the 27" mower (recommended model) and tows operator behind mower, (A poor man's John Deere) for cutting large acreage. What intrigued me was the "two-speed five-blade drop-out reel which is self-sharpening in reverse" I never owned a reel mower, so this feature sounded really neat! I think SP should get one of these vintage mower as a backup to her new JD tractor. It looks like perfect as an "OK Snake Charmer" for handling those pesky serpents on the farm!

(?) What happened you ask LDi - while Beau was surreptitiously absent.
- and I blame the Heavenly Ice cream & brown sugar Strawberries with milk Fix
- that caused the lack of time judgement

Me to AuntBug - this house has a 1/2 open kitchen & we love it.
- and Beau is the Sous Chief...so I'm simply a welcomed addition

SP - quit picking on Mr. entering the kitchen / as it will hurt his self confidence level.
- so clearly remember...
- Happy Husband / Happy Wife or SO
>> as Happy Wife / Happy Life...is all Hog Wash backwards
- and you heard it from Papa first, the relationship PhD

I rather like isolated kitchens too. At least, I don't want a kitchen that you see all spread out in its full glory the minute you walk in the door. I like my messes out of sight happily isolated from the parts of the house that have to be presentable for those unexpected drop-in guests.

And nobody wants to watch me cook—and then have to eat the meals I produce. They really don't need to see me put the onion and meat chunks that I splash out onto the stove while I'm stirring, back into the pot. I'm a messy cook, even though I can cook up a nice spread (if I must say so myself.)

And while dish-washing isn't my bete noire, I do like to sit for a little bit after a meal sometimes before I tackle the dishes—in another room, so I don't have the full sink staring me in the face.

Open-floor concept? It seems to me that just means that you have to have the whole house clean ALL of the time. It's not for me.

I've been lucky enough to rent places that had kitchens big enough that they were the central activity hub in the house. I love that--I love company if I'm cooking. (I'm obviously not at all possesive of my kitchens.

And I'm willing to wash stacks and bales of dishes (by hand) as long as I don't have to work all day and then come home and cook. My best deal of all time was when I was the only person in the house who had a 'real' job (one that had regular hours and times I had to be there. The house was rented to four of us--three guys and me (two of them could cook and one couldn't--we laboriously taught him to make an edible tuna casserole just knew we'd have that once a week when Bob was cooking. Weekends (I worked weekends) were just part of the cook/wash dishes deal. There was a posted rotation for cooking--if, on my days off, I decided to cook the assigned person had to help with whatever I was making--usually that meant they made a salad.

But on the days that either of the two guys who knew how to cook were on the schedule we got some outstanding food but one who had actually been employed by a pretty big deal restaurant when he was in college always managed to use every pot and pan when he was cooking. The other guy, whose sister taught him to cook also taught him to clean up after himself so the dish washing was minimal with him.

I loved it--I'd come home to the smell of good food cooked by someone else.

I hate kitchens that isolate the cook.

SD / KEN / TN - you guys are the best'est & caring Roosters...in chicken Hawk land.
- and Doc & TN that Milk Carton idea is priceless...gonna send that image, to Twin67 funny chit there, peeing myself here

To BE HONEST.
I thought, if Beau went into a few days of Hibernation...that the Chicken Hawk Chicks, would: startup a Missing Larry GOFUNDME.
- and once close to $100,000 American Dollars is collect, for my safe return...No questions Asked
- Papa would just reappear, and Collect the Loot

SD - HaHaHa on the extra Leaf spring, and I'll be back this Saturday morning.

Don't know about Termites...not really a thing, in Canada. Bugs get wiped out in Winter freeze.
- but I will Tar the bottom 3-4 ft, post need to go in hole...below frost line
- and the Tar or a House Wrap Barrier on the bottom, will not allow the concrete in the post hole to make wood contact & prevent post rot it in the ground

Twin67 has a very long Fence, on a deep double lot / and over the years, all the PT posts snapped off, in a big storm.
- he took my advice an orders 4x4" White Oak...and they last forever now
- Century Homes always had a White Oak threshold board on the Front door entrance
- many will take the outdoor weather, and still exist after 100 years
- so Beau idea of White Oak posts is a game changer, using a 4x4 W-Oak with the strength of a 6x6" PTreat

IceCream_RubyRed. by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

The ice cream went down - much too fast.
- so on the way home, we stopped at a road side Strawberry farm store
- and bough 2 fresh quarts, so Papa could have them with Milk & Brown Sugar.
Num-Nums Again - Saturday night / Sunday night / & Monday night.

Beaumont67 Looks like Beau has some Mower reviews & pics...to catch on.

Saturday out Truck'en with brother Twin67 - @ the Mennonites sawmill.
- Larry picked up, 1,800# of White Oak fence posts...customs 4.5x4.5" x 10 & 11 Ft. long
- they will outlast 6x6" Pressure treat, and 3x stronger than 4x4" Pressure treat posts

Luckily RubyRed is built like a 1500HD, with extra Leaf spring over a z71 half ton.
- plus I have a factory Tow package, with Transmission cooler, 4,10 twelve bolt, and new BridgeStone 10 ply truck tires
- got to go back, this weekend...for a load of 2x4" cedar Fence support
(bracing between posts)
- little rear truck spring squat going on, with the weight overload rear down 2.5" - front end up 1.5", on the 100 mile trip home

And 1.5 miles from the Wood pickup - is a quaint little rural variety store.
- with the best premium ice cream, on the planet
- Beau holding his triple scoop, in his left hand...Caramel Turtle Fudge, trust me

No Spocksdad - not yet - I took her out before bed time - then I got her up around 12 last night , then I got her up around 4:30 or so - she pottied every time , but that 4:30 trip - WOW - She was ready to rock and roll ! I wish I could bottle up some of that puppy energy for me

SD - Was watching the weather- boy of boy it looks like your in for some major heat ! be careful out in that stuff . Spock may need a hose down

ECIN In a Doberman's mind, going out on potty break in sprinkles is abuse...
Having lotion rubbed on their pads, after nail grooming, is abuse....
Not being touched and petted every 10 minutes is abuse...


Somebody - is thinking right now , that being put in her crate is
