At least, you have rain headed your way...


Related Heat Fact:
San Antonio's Milam building (1928) was first high rise building in with air conditioning. Carrier built chillers in basement remained in service for 60 years until 1989. At least the US has one innovation the Canadians don't claim, as depicted on every episode of Murdoch Mysteries...

LadyDi Hoss will tolerate being around other dogs but does not like it if I pet or play with the other dogs during the visit.
If I just hang out and have no physical contact with others dogs he is fine and laying back on his hip relaxed.
But if I attempt to interact with other dog Hoss is up and over to me proclaiming his ownership.
Males have fought for my attention for years so I have gotten used to this game. so exhausting yet necessary.
So glad Kadin is settling in with Evie.
In time maybe he will share his dad more but this behavior is OK for now.

Boy we are getting dry here ! Maybe some rain moving in tonight , early morning on Thursday . Corn and beans need a good drink !

Time for some Crony Info . This time of year - Corn will use a 1/4 inch of water a day ! It takes 27,154 gallon's of water to equal a inch on 1 acre , So a 1/4 = 6,788 of use a day on 1 acre !

Evie had a good night and Kadin did better - He just don't like dad holding her - Wife can - but not me ! I gave him lots and lots of lovin last night - and plenty of play time with me -- it sure seemed to help .

Thanks LDi ! I from a day some place and forgot it was Friday ! Party time !
Ya know Doc here is Florida at tomato farms etc when it gets real dry I see those farmers using sprinkler systems .
Do you not not use sprinkler systems?
Or a water truck ? Along our interstates they use water trucks during dry times.

Morning, LaDi?

LaDi, please inform Sybil that her calendar is two days ahead of reality....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sybil_(1976_film)

----------------------------------------------------

101F predicted for today, last of triple digits. You can really feel difference in intensity of heat, when over 100F. It's more like walking out into a toaster oven on 425F vs. a bread warmer. Hand watering plants after dog walks this morning. SATX started Phase I drought restrictions last week, which is keyed to Edwards aquifer level. Only one day/week sprinkler watering allowed, depending on last digit of street address, our day is Friday.

TN - If you're out of shampoo or just need a more cost-effective and efficient cleaner, Murphy's oil soap can also be used to clean your entire car. Clean your interior dashboard, steering wheel and add a pea-sized amount to your vacuum foam to clean your car seats.

25 Surprising Ways To Use Murphy’s Oil Soap
- When diluted properly, Murphy® Oil Soap Original Formula does not leave a residue. Despite the fact that it is called "oil soap," there is no "free oil" left behind. If you see a residue after applying Murphy® Oil Soap for the first time, it's likely that another cleaner was previously used.
- put soap in the water, not the other way around

Supplies Run-Down...
a) Murphy's to clean dash plastic / no silicons left behind
b) AMAZING spray @ dollar store...clean carpet, chrome & brake dust off alloys
c) Novus3 &/or 3M bottle...to paint correct
d) followed up with Novus2 Fine
e) AutoGLYN - like a sealer / but b) seals to

^^ I don't wax vehicles ever / just some paint correction products, to remove swirl marks and water spots and paint oxidation...for a good slippery finish.
- setup for future light hand mitt wash or brush wash...with Murphy's Oil diluted solution

Agree Mel, that's why it must be hitched to the 27" self propelled model (1/2-6 mph), with the more powerful 2-HP Briggs & Stratton power plant!

Maybe Denny could get a sulky and hitch it up to her new JD tractor! That way, The Mister could ride shotgun on the sulky and give her instruction on how to drive the tractor, since she's having some difficulties now...

------------------------------------------------------

Morbidly Weird: DT spell checker apparently doesn't have "Stratton" in database, but suggested "castration" as an alternative. Yikes...don't want ever to see those two words used in the same news story sentence...

I'm not sure if the above was one of the choices but it's the one I like best.

melbrod I guess I'm late to the party, but pillow #1 here too. Maybe one of pillow #3, if you MUST have a little variety.

I'd throw some brighter color in there too. You could even have pillows with seasonal colors so you could switch them from time to time to freshen up your look. Grey goes with anything.

Original Paint Yes TN...thks for asking...a Rare find / Half ton 4x4 built like an 1500HD.
- I could talk about this 4 wheel steer truck, all day

It was the 1st truck year in 2003, that GM used the Corvette Victory Red, on the Silverado.
- but I am an experienced (self trained)...at finding cream puff used vehicles
- as I did 15 weekend years doing Rust Repair, Auto Body & Paint...on family farm
- a skill set suited to avoiding buying junk
- and the replacement vehicle find, I treat like a Hobby...the Hunt & Purchase is the True RUSH of adrenaline to me
- RubyRed is a 2003, so almost 18 years old
- found red truck photo, on FB / it wasn't even posted for $ale...so I manufactured the deal (out of thin air)
- co-worker friends always ask Larry, "how do you always find nice & clean car"?
- my reply..."I'm patience, and have my head into the game...constantly looking randomly"

RubyRed was from the a North-Mid West State...Beau Imported in January 2019.
- but the 2nd owner, was smart mechanically & kept maintenance up / his dad even had a hoist in farm garage
- at USA owners home, his 2 car garage was also heated in the winter...so truck was saved from the rust elements

^ My old 83 y/o neighbor was a Professional Car Salesman & detailer, back in the 1960's.
- he thought my truck was 5 years old...because the paint holds an extra nice shine
- the mild oil washing finish, still allows water to bead off
- most car purists geeks would cringe @ my wash methods...but results, do speak for themselves

Question- Are full picture pillows reversible, with a plain back side?

The photo pillows are a solid color on the backside.

- 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
