Anyway, just thought I would bring it up since we were talking about food today, and I love the razzing.
4:45 now and I still haven't started supper/dinner. If it were me I would fix a big ice cream float and forget it.
I wouldn't go out looking for one on purpose but if someone put one in front of me I'd try it...but then I'm the type who'll try anything once. Yes, anything. I even tried balut (Google it, if you dare ) once in the Philippines although I will admit I was extremely inebriated at the time on Red Horse beer and kamikazes

Sigh...I think our Shih Tzu, Coco, is close to crossing the bridge. He'll be 17 this November. He's had some health problems; he's deaf, he has a heart murmur for which he's been on enalapril for years, he has arthritis in his back legs to the point we have to carry him up and down stairs, and lately he's been having a hard time holding his bladder so we have to take him out like every 1 1/2 - 2 hours. But the last few days, he's started wheezing, and it's gotten progressively worse each day and he's moving a lot slower than he was before. Anytime we take him out and he takes a few steps, he starts wheezing really bad and coughing/hacking. I was doing some reading and it could be a collapsing trachea or it could be his heart. Either way, at his age, not sure what, if anything we can have done for him. I'm going to take him to the vet Monday if at all possible with these virus protocols, at the very least I'll send them a video of him wheezing and see if they can fit him in to take a look.

He's my wife's dog, for the most part, and every time I start hinting around she doesn't want to have that conversation. I understand, I really do but I hope that if the vets say it's time, she can make the right decision.

Coco has always been a really odd dog...he's always been more like a cat, very independent and not at all into snuggling, being petted, or being close to anyone. If we picked him up and put him on the couch or bed with us, he'd move down to the end and lay down LOL. The total opposite of Mocha. Speaking of Mocha, Coco was here when we brought Mocha home so she's known him her whole life and now she's super worried about him. Every time he wheezes, she starts whining and pacing...she knows something is wrong with her older brother.

One of Beau favorite design elements of sons Basement Reno...
- was moving closet and making one that works better / keeping TV wall, nice & wide
- the cedar board ceiling adds a nice aroma (like a Blanket box)
- and top right side will allow for future AC Freon line & new water Line to outside wall
- without dropping drywall ceiling, in the main room
- finally, the small cedar door @ the end...hides the ugly 100 Amp Electrical Panel
- and sons 2x4 ft. steel workbench, will fit in there...for few tools & paint cans & stuff
- 2 holes in drywall, was patched up on Friday / for access to mount Barn Door track,
on other side of wall

ALSbasement_closetCedar by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

Bottom 20" of Furnace Room doorway - was prepared with plywood, instead of drywall.
- because the original 2x4 studs warped on a bad angle...and drywall was too weak to hold screws, on little support
- now the wood ply, also held the metal corner bead very well
- and the carpenter had wood to air pin nail baseboard trim in position
^^ The inside Jam transition from plaster board to painted plywood...is seamless.

ALSbasement_doorJamRepair by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

Two hallways had lower drywall removed (after flood) - bottom 20 inches.
- all patched up and leveled perfectly...one would never know / repairs ever made

^^ Larry too good @ this stuff...but it was Fun, using some old hand skills & solving Reno problems.

ALSbasement_hallRepair by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

The Ugly basement bathroom, once had a white ceramic tile floor.
- but leaving it, would screw up the transition under the door jam
- and the crap tile portion would still be seen / once the bathroom door was closed
- so all floor time removed, with a sledge hammer & masonry chisel / glue removed via Oscillating Saw blade
- once gone, cement floor exposed a 3/4" drop in middle
- and corrected with self-leveling compound / now the PVC Floor sits flat & doesn't squeak

The bottom 4" of room drywall got wet damaged from flood & removed / but shimmed up, 4-3/4 high Popular, covers it perfectly.
- the only area, that didn't need much Drywall work

BabyBear picked out a new vanity to, looks real nice with new taps & 1 piece counter
Top & sink...a updated, clean look.

Good Evening Peeps!

We said we weren't going to do it, but we did.

Yep! Bought a few hundred dollars of fireworks.

I almost made it without buying them. Doesn't help that Impact Fireworks is a permanent fixture around here.

I tried not to, dammit!

Mister enabled me. Yep. Blaming it on him!

So Beau...

"Good stuff 4x4 // those mechanical watches are very intriguing in your collection.
- Beau gonna have to goggle some of them, and expand my Timekeeping Brain Power"

I'll save you the time. Here are my 3 favorite wind-up mechanical watches that I own:

Late 70's Omega Ultra Thin - owned since new - Identical to this one:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Omega-watch...EAAOSwiHFdYU68

Revue Thommen Sport 30's (Issue # 1103/4999) purchased new 30+ years ago - Mine has the black dial face:
https://swissluxurywatches.ch/produc...0s-15000-3132/

Hamilton men's dress watch - Vintage - Very rare - Purchased used about 20 years ago. Beautiful watch. Identical to the one below:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/1017066...SABEgKbcfD_BwE

Here is my go-to dress quartz. A Georg Jensen Koppel 519 Dual Time It was given to me as a gift about 15 years ago:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Georg-Jense...-/191887756356

Great watches are like most things of quality. If well cared for and maintained, they will last a lifetime (or longer). Like my western boots. Oh, Don't get me started on those! LOL

STJ!

Good Morning Everyone! Happy day after the 4th.

Our night went better than expected. Mila did quite well. Thought it was going to be a long night. Here and my wife were outside around 5:30 and a loud bang went off next door. Mila ran up to the deck. Not sure if the neighbors were starting early. But it was only one.

We were watching tv Mila in her bed in front of us, when the first fireworks went off. She got up and pressed against my wife's legs. My wife got her kindle to read and turned on a music station from YouTube and got on the old leather sofa where she takes her naps at. I was sitting on the floor and Mila climbed up the foot rest and on to the the couch with my wife and trembled for a bit.

But after a while she settled down and was really good even though the fireworks were going off all over and over the house. They stopped about 10:30 we all went to bed.

The couch I think is her safe spot. When we leave she goes there.


I am sore from more yard work or outside work. Have been painting the crawl space foundation last 2 days. Crawling about on hands and knees, going under the deck, cutting grass etc.... More grass cutting today and final pine straw work as well.

As I was catching up on some of the pages - I noticed TNs brisket (which looked quite good). What I also noticed was the cutting board it was on - gingerbread man

We grilled up some chicken wings. Homemade beer cheese dip and pita bread for lunch yesterday. Very good

TN--- WHY did you DARE ME ?? And people say I'm "NOT " right ! Why did I look up something posted by somebody else that's " NOT " right ? I bet you swallowed gold fish whole at the fair to didn't you ?

Now the question -- How am I not going to think about your post the rest of the day ?

I advise that nobody else look it up !

Cressrb - why is that ? / we stopped buying Organic Eggs from a local farm.

^^ Anyone know why ? ....we always wondered

What is as gross as dog kibble Beyond Burger patties ??

CowBoy steaks - where cutoff pieces are glued together, with bad stuff.
- tried them once, on advice of neighbor
- I didn't know at first...about the glue, but tasted awful
- even former Amy, wouldn't get them either / this is all, Beau had to see

Morning Modm ! Glad to hear that Mila got along pretty good ! It sounded like a war zone here last night - in coming from all directions ! Had one good neighbor call before dark and tell me they were going to set off fireworks and just wanted me to know - He was worried about Kadin - he was fine , Nice of him to call , I thought .

Aunt Bonnie -- Question ! The last bunch of cookies you sent us -- well -- they tasted like cardboard - You didn't happen to send me a batch of veggie cookies did you ??? LOL

Aunt Bug - did you watch the finish of the NASCAR race yesterday ? What a last 8 laps ! I think that may have been the best finish I have ever seen on a road course ! What a finish ! And the Best thing ? A Indiana young man won it ! Chase Briscoe , He came up from Sprint cars and his dad and grandpa were both big shoes in the sprint cars

Hey Doc, the neighbor that called you about fireworks.
Was that the same neighbor that you challenged with your Ford F-150 recently?
No doubt they handle you and special events ....very carefully.....

Just thought I'd pop in for a minute, since it's been a while... so much has happened, and not all of it good, but maybe in time it will be. I spent a lot of time putting up new curtains and doing a deep clean on the house, which I have neglected for too long. A couple weeks ago, I lost Willie, my big fluffy cat (the one who went on a hunger strike and almost starved, remember?). He didn't come in one day and I thought it was because it was soooo hot, but the next morning, I found him flattened out on the road. I can't even describe... I have to stop there.

The very next day we had a super-cell thunderstorm with golf ball sized hail that took out two of our living room windows, completely wrecked the roof patching Rich had managed to finally accomplish (so it's raining inside again when it rains outside), ripped off one of the storm doors and bent the other one, and broke off about a dozen fully mature trees, including one of the pines. It's hard to break a pine tree in two. So now we're trying to find someone to come fix all the damage. I don't know what we're going to do about all the trees and limbs and branches everywhere. And pine cones. They're all over the place. And dead baby birds that got blown out of their nests. Most of the parents are gone now, too.

The very next night after the big storm we had another big storm, but the hail was smaller, and no microbursts, so minimal tree damage on that one. Basically, it just finished ripping the broken branches out of the trees. Since then we've had several smaller storms that normally wouldn't bother me, but I'm so punchy now, when I see black clouds on the horizon I just start shaking and crying. Even the CATS are freaking out now when they hear thunder. They run back and forth through the house, howling at the top of their lungs.

If the microburst that took out all those trees was 50 feet farther east, it would have taken out our house. I thank God we still have a house, even thought it has holes in it and no paint on one side (the big hail stripped all the paint off).

No doubt they handle you and special events ....very carefully.....
Matter of fact it was - LOL - But they always call if they are going to light some up - they knew Kasia very well and knew it up-set her .

BTW - He did inform me they got rid of that dog yesterday - gave it to somebody - I guess he got very protective of his wife and started growling at kids and anybody that got out of there car at there house , plus he started not getting along with there 2 other dogs - one a senior and was picking fights with it - btw - I warned him when they got that dog he may have big problems with them as both were males = he just laughed and said , oh , they will be OK , I guess they weren't .

I can admire some of the spendy watches and their not so spendy counterparts but after all the years of breaking watch springs on "nice" watches I'm perfectly happy with the Timex, cassio and other el cheapo watches (I used to shop for the under $10 types--what with inflation and all now I shop for under $20. My only requirement are that they have numbers instead of slash marks on the dial for times, a sweep second hand and be water resistant to 10 meters. A lighted dial is a bonus.

Beau--Canadian style BLT sound really good to me...

LOL, I know, Ken, just had to say my bit about it. I get my hackles up a bit about it because I see so much of the anti-farmer propaganda (not that I would expect that from Bonnie, of course!). There's so much misinformation about there about what's good for the environment, it really bugs me. Farming and ranching, done right, is actually GOOD for our environment. So many vegans think that it's better for the environment, but it's not! Rotational farming, with animals is actually what we need to improve soil conditions and feed more people..anyway, I digress!

Most of you know I feed raw to my animals. I have no philosophy about it and I love just good good food and good good coffee. I hate veggie burgers. They taste like cardboard.

Anyway, just thought I would bring it up since we were talking about food today, and I love the razzing.
4:45 now and I still haven't started supper/dinner. If it were me I would fix a big ice cream float and forget it.
LOL, 100%. I absolutely didn't think you would be the pushy type at all - have never gotten that vibe. I am in FULL support of people eating how they want, and what works for them. I was actually vegetarian for quite a few years. I loved it, but I actually couldn't stay healthy, no matter what foods I ate. Eventually I realized my body was clearly communicating that it wasn't right for me...went back to eating meat, and was much healthier. Still love a lot of vegetarian dishes, though!

I feel the same way about those who raw feed - totally cool with it, as long as they don't tell me I'm killing my dog by feeding kibble

But the last few days, he's started wheezing, and it's gotten progressively worse each day and he's moving a lot slower than he was before. Anytime we take him out and he takes a few steps, he starts wheezing really bad and coughing/hacking. I was doing some reading and it could be a collapsing trachea or it could be his heart. Either way, at his age, not sure what, if anything we can have done for him. I'm going to take him to the vet Monday if at all possible with these virus protocols, at the very least I'll send them a video of him wheezing and see if they can fit him in to take a look.

He's my wife's dog, for the most part, and every time I start hinting around she doesn't want to have that conversation. I understand, I really do but I hope that if the vets say it's time, she can make the right decision.

Coco has always been a really odd dog...he's always been more like a cat, very independent and not at all into snuggling, being petted, or being close to anyone. If we picked him up and put him on the couch or bed with us, he'd move down to the end and lay down LOL. The total opposite of Mocha. Speaking of Mocha, Coco was here when we brought Mocha home so she's known him her whole life and now she's super worried about him. Every time he wheezes, she starts whining and pacing...she knows something is wrong with her older brother.
I'm really sorry, TN. It's so hard when dogs reach the end of their life. It must be extra hard to see Mocha's confusion and worry, too.

A couple weeks ago, I lost Willie, my big fluffy cat (the one who went on a hunger strike and almost starved, remember?). He didn't come in one day and I thought it was because it was soooo hot, but the next morning, I found him flattened out on the road. I can't even describe... I have to stop there.

The very next day we had a super-cell thunderstorm with golf ball sized hail that took out two of our living room windows, completely wrecked the roof patching Rich had managed to finally accomplish (so it's raining inside again when it rains outside), ripped off one of the storm doors and bent the other one, and broke off about a dozen fully mature trees, including one of the pines. It's hard to break a pine tree in two. So now we're trying to find someone to come fix all the damage. I don't know what we're going to do about all the trees and limbs and branches everywhere. And pine cones. They're all over the place. And dead baby birds that got blown out of their nests. Most of the parents are gone now, too.

The very next night after the big storm we had another big storm, but the hail was smaller, and no microbursts, so minimal tree damage on that one. Basically, it just finished ripping the broken branches out of the trees. Since then we've had several smaller storms that normally wouldn't bother me, but I'm so punchy now, when I see black clouds on the horizon I just start shaking and crying. Even the CATS are freaking out now when they hear thunder. They run back and forth through the house, howling at the top of their lungs.

If the microburst that took out all those trees was 50 feet farther east, it would have taken out our house. I thank God we still have a house, even thought it has holes in it and no paint on one side (the big hail stripped all the paint off).

I'm still licking my wounds...
It's good to see you back, Lannie, but I'm so sorry for everything you've been through. So deeply sorry about your cat.

Huh ! I have never noticed that before

So Sorry TN ! That is one of the toughest deals I have ever had to deal with - You and the Mrs. out in our thoughts

WOW Lannie - What a storm ! I seen that on the WX Channel when it was going threw your area and wondered about you out in the Wild West . We had a Micro burst here about 10 years ago - South on our house a mile and a half - Corn was flat of the ground - Hail - Oh yeah - stripped all the paint off of barns - tore off gutter - we had to have a new roof - amazing the damage it can do - Sorry About Kitty ! Hope things get better for you Lannie .

Lannie, so good to hear from you! And so sorry to hear what you were going through. That is rough! You are made of tougher stock than most, certainly than me.

MC, Yep! to all you say. I agree.

Doc, I am so sorry you didn't like my cookies! You should have told me. My feelings are hurt a little bit.

Beau, the older the egg the easier to peel. As the egg sets the inside starts to contract or shrink away from the shell due to air. A fresh egg won't have that air pocket at the bottom . Another way to tell how fresh an egg is to float it in water. A fresh egg will sink to the bottom. It really is a pain to peel those fresh ones. I have tried boiling in salt and once adding vinegar to the water per instructions or immediately adding cold water. Nothing helped. Just use older eggs.

Bug, in an older post you mentioned your chrysanthemums were trying to bloom this month? Mine always try that and the 'professionals' say you must cut those blooms off and then they will give you full bloom in the fall.

We had a full show of fireworks until midnight last night. It sounded like a war out there. And then we watched 'The Outpost' last night and I just didn't sleep well considering everything else.

Rich is in full swing with the motorhome that got such a jolt last week. Had to replace faucet. Now the leak in water line somewhere and then we are off to try the trip again. Two of my sons are flying in the end of this month to give us a boost and see if we can get things done in a big way.

BTW, I checked John Lennon's signature and it is not like that. Just so you don't get your hopes up...
