    It’s pretty quiet in here today! I guess I’m the only one stuck inside with nothing to do on a Saturday ‍♀️
    I wonder if the weather planned out for Marks trip or if he got submerged in the swamp..... I’m passing time on the treadmill while my chicken tortilla soup simmers... a completely BLAH day!!

    Has you weather improved Heather or are you still being rained on?

    I ran the line trimmer until the battery and my back died. Now I'm parked in my recliner catching my second wind. Tortilla soup sounds pretty good right about now!

    It’s still raining... We are under a river flood warning. My property won’t actually flood but it washes horribly!! We got a break long enough for me to take a survey and I see some places that will need attention ... it’s supposed to continue the tirade until about dark tonight and then move out. I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow though!

    I did some weed eating and raking yesterday and am getting plenty of recliner time today! Better put some heat on that back of yours so you do t stiffen up even more. I wish I could send some of the soup.... I always make too much... we can only get satellite service out here so my tv and internet is down.. it’s recorded shows and lousy cell service only ... it would be a dream if I didn’t have kids here

    Scary part is anyone can go into the DMV and for a small fee ask for the license plate information. In Virginia it is a public record and as such it is available, the $10 fee just slows the average noisey nelley. For a good internet scare go to Zabasearch and have at it- it combs public records and for a small fee you can get just about everything on a person.

    Thanks. That actually is just about perfect temperatures for me. It's the drought and electricity problems that would be very hard to deal with. No air conditioning at 104 would kill me.

    I don't know anything about your species. I know a little bit about Florida gophers. I read a few things about Russians. One said that the vent of a male looks like a straight screwdriver and the female looks like an asterisk. I read other things too but I was told he was a she. So I looked and saw the straight screwdriver look. I should have let that prepare me...I'd listen to Tom and be prepared.

    Thanks for responding! I don't know if females have chin glands though.
    Those bumps are chin glands, right?

    A while ago I bought a little single person DVD player and I've started buying the whole series of Wagon Train, Soap, Gunsmoke, The Virginian and Carol Burnett and Friends. So next time the TV service goes out I'm prepared. (I buy only 1 DVD at a time for $$ reasons. So far I have the complete set of Soap, Carol Burnett, The Virginian and Wagon Train. Gunsmoke was on for over 20 years, so there's quite a few of them to buy, and so far not all of them are available.)

    It stopped
    Long enough for me to feed the horses and let the dogs out. I grabbed Toretto and brought him in for a soak. We skipped yesterday so he really needed to poop . Now, it rains more

    The Virginian was my grandmothers favorite.. gun smoke was next. :) we were very close and I watched many shows with her. I noticed recently that there is now a series remake of lonesome dove with Tommy Lee Jones In it.. May have to record that one:)

    I remember the Virginian from when I was a kid. Doug McClure, Trampas, was an early crush :)

    Good evening all. We are off to bed shortly. We had a an excellent day out with my uncle even if we did have to dodge sleet and hail showers. In between the sun shone, but it was bitterly cold. Tomorrow we are off to see my in-laws. I am hoping for best behaviour from them as we will have both children with us... however, nothing is guaranteed with them especially their behaviour.

    Must have been really cold down that way today. We have frost forecast for the morning here.
    My leg with the metal plate has really been aching today and I wondered if it was because of the cold - either that or I've overdone using it!
    I hope your knee is steadily improving
    Have a nice day with the outlaws, I'm sure if they do start to perform Joe's sis and bro will find it quite entertaining....oldies behaving badly is pretty funny.:)
