Next step would be to install a higher gain HDTV antenna on roof such as RCA one previously linked.

If that doesn't work, an amplified high gain HDTV antenna such as this one could be used (has VHF dipole to pickup SD analog channels in addition to HD UHF channel dipole elements)

https://amazon.com/AirDiff-Outodor-A...dp/B07N7YHDC7/

Keep in mind, amplified antennas can't be used with the other active splitter/boosters, as linked above.
Maybe next time you're at coffee shop or TS, ask around what setup others in Guthrie are using for HDTV antennas, or is everyone using satellite?

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

Yagi Antenna Wind Tip- Back in my early seafaring career, along the US Gulf-East coast tanker trade, we used to mount large high gain VHF/UHF antennas on flying bridge so officers and crew could watch TV up and down coast in lounges. Each antenna was mounted on a heavy duty Ham antenna rotator. To keep the elements from getting torn apart from the constant wind and occasional storms, we would string the elements together with 200lb. test fishing line, knot off, then epoxy the knots. This would strengthen antenna into homogeneous unit without affecting signal reception. This is less important with the UHF yagi style antennas with short elements, more resistant to wind damage. Something to consider in tornado alley?
No! One TV hooked to the antenna on the roof!

Whatever that means.

On a side note, my truck has two eyeballs now!

On another side note, Franks's chicken still keeps getting lost in the forbidden zone.

And, EMSA pulled into my driveway this evening.

Had to tell them, "Over there!"

Who says Guthrie is boring?

Just so happened there was a table full of cops next to us at the restaurant that morning. The trucker we were following was telling me now was the time to talk to someone about my black eye. Trucker boyfriend didn't find that funny at all!

LMAO

He was pissed. Who was going to believe that a Doberman gave me a black eye?

It hasn't rained one drop in about a month now and we still have temps in the mid 90s with no rain in the forecast

Charcoal or pencil? Just use a softer lead. (4B or 8B)

I don't normally draw with such heavy dark lines myself. In fact, I try not to have lines at all, but just let the dark or lighter area behind something define the shape.

I just tried to find a pic to show you what I mean and couldn't--but I did find this long-forgotten scribble of the dogs "helping" me exercise that I thought someone here might identify with



I like the grin on Kip's face--I know it is him because Capri was the face licker.

Well, dadgumit--I managed to avoid caves, abandoned mines and mothballed missile silo's when Nixon was President although I did get my passport renewed kept my boat equipped for long distance travel on short notice.

But I was thinking of looking into missile silo's again when I got to thinking about the possibility of Trump actually getting elected for a second term.

One of my hotshot computer guru's started looking into cheap fast internet service--I'll let you know how that pans out. He may actually find something since I'm taking care of his elderly bitch who has an advanced heart condition when he is working out of town--and I'm doing it free in exchange for him updating and upgrading my archaic computer gear to something that isn't 10 years or more old. I let ya'll know how that works out.

Weather--speaking of weather--I said yesterday that we are having very fall like weather here in the left hand Portland. Yesterday was dry but sticky feeling--high humidity for us and it had rained the day before.

So the forecast last night was for low temperatures and predicted possibility of rain for every day for a week out. I got up this morning at 6:30am (having overslept by a 1/2 hour) to rain--and from then to when I left the clinic to come home at 1:30pm it rained harder and harder-finally stopped abut five minutes ago (3:30pm--RATS--I forgot to take my 2:00pm handful of pills--that's all folks--now I'm going to take the pills and a nap...)

ABTLH

PS The high today is suppose to be 62 degrees--normal average high's in September are usually mid 70's occasionally rising in a few days of 80 degrees.

https://petpartners.org/act/pet-part...nference-2019/

Since Spock has never been to "the city" I wanted to make a practice run downtown to the Marriott RiverCenter hotel where Pet Partners conference is being held. Spock did great on the practice run and we experienced a plethora of new things to him including:

1. First big city visit & crossing at crosswalk intersections
2. First time in a parking garage
3. First time in an elevator
4. First time seeing electric scooters go past
5. First time interacting with lots of families and tourists walking by on sidewalk.
6. First time seeing Fire Truck & Ambulance up close with sirens wailing.
7. First time seeing vagrants walk by (just a couple and he remained calm, which was my biggest concern prior to trip)

Spocksdad & Spock at Marriott RiverCenter Hotel




He did great with the tourists, many admiring him while we sat in shade on sidewalk. He was more interested in a colony of tiny ants working to gather up food particles on sidewalk!




"Let Me Look At Those Neat Ants, Dad!"




Wouldn't you know, as were finishing up our visit, a large fire truck and ambulance, sirens wailing, came down street and pulled into Marriott's drive thru, while my daughter was taking our picture! I'm surprised Spock remained calm and didn't start howling, like he does with pack at home.

Next week for the event, the therapy teams will have free valet parking so things will be easier. Surprisingly, this Marriott hotel has a No Pets policy, whereas the Grand Hyatt across the street at convention center, where my daughter works, is pet friendly... So, the No Pets hotel is hosting Pet Partners convention....go figure?

Spock rode up the elevator with myself and my daughter and he did okay. I think Eva in same situation would be slightly different.
Way to go, team Spock!

Great job Spock and SD!

When we lived in Arkansas - My wife and I travelled down to SA for a week. Visited: Alamo (of course), a very nice art district - la villita, canal, Sea World and many other places....food was very good as well!

We thought the city then was pretty nice for a city

JOKE

A State Trooper pulled over a Man for Speeding one afternoon. After the car pulled over the officer took the Gentleman out of the car and told him to put his hands on the hood of his car.
The Trooper told the man, "Sir, the reason i stopped your vehicle is you were going 80 miles over the posted speed limit and it took me miles to catch up to you." The man looked at the Officer and said "I'm sorry Officer but theres a good reason why I was Speeding"

The Officer looked at the Man and said "if you can give me one good reason why you were Speeding, I will let you off with a warning."

The man began to explain.... "A few years ago my Wife ran off with a State Trooper and when I saw you in my rearview mirror I panicked. I thought You Were Bringing Her Back."

The officer LAUGHING told the man, "Have a Nice Day......"

I did read her Wolf's Brother book first...totally not worth it, in my mind. Or at least, not up the standards I'm used to from her. I didn't know it was the second book in a twofer--Reindeer People is the first. Maybe if I had read that one initially, I would have like this one better.

Her books as Robin Hobb aren't written in the same style, but remain a favorite with me still.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book; finished it in 2 days. I was going to read more of her stuff but did a segue into the Jesse Stone series (Robert B. Parker) after finding out there were more books in the series than I had initially read years ago...so I started from the beginning again. After I finish them all, it's back to Robin Hobb.
