Coffee 10-12-13

PostBy: Freddy On: Sat Oct 12, 2013 5:32 am

Good day! Come in, spend a few minutes with us. Have a coffee...have two! There's even tea & juice for the non coffee people. I'm thinking a scrambled egg sandwich on toast sounds good. Let's heat up the fry pan & get thing rolling.

South & west of here might be getting rain, but gosh, we are having the most beautiful Indian summer ever! Simply the most warm & beautiful October ever, and, it looks like the whole next week will be the same. Bring it on!

Maybe with some luck the government will stop acting like children & we can get things back on track? I'm embarrassed to think.... visitors from outside the USA come to our great country to spend time and money to get a glimpse of the great USA. They get off their tour bus at a National park & are greeted by armed guards telling them they are not allowed in the park and are forbidden to take photos. Really?

OK... I didn't get to it last weekend, so maybe this weekend I'll get things prepped to "light the match" for the year. That day is coming. When the time comes we'll probably go from this nice weather to ice and snow overnight. Maybe prepare tomorrow... today I have to go do furnace maintenance at my cousins place.

Enjoy the weekend!
Freddy

Mornin all, good simple breakfast choice Freddy:) NICE-- Soon as dew gets done, YEP, back to the corn fields--only bogged down once yesterday. 40* here on the hill. I guess I got a bad line on power steering pump on the plow truck I'd best get resolved while the getting is good. Not much time left to get things wrapped up before old man winter blows in me thinks. Have a good week-end everyone.

Good morning. By some miracle, I went to bed early and slept until 6:30. I can't even remember the last time I slept that long! Hopefully the fog blows out of town and it turns out to be a nice day. I am starting an EFM install after lunch, so I better start rounding up my tools and leftover fittings.

Freddy,
Don't mind me I'm just searching for the six pack of soda you have stored somewhere. Today is a busy day, I'm off to meet with a customer and then a supplier this a.m. It should be a good day since the wife decided to go along. As soon as we return it is back in the shop for a full afternoon of work. Tomorrow will be a full work day as well so I'm going to enjoy my short trip with the wife. I'm ready for snow and winter. I just purchased a new to me Woods 6 foot snow blower. I have already cleaned it up and threw a quick coat of paint on it. Funny, after I painted it I noticed a bearing on the auger needs to be replaced. I'm going to pick up the bearing this a.m. and change both ends. Its a cool 30F here this morning. I like it, the coal stoves are idling with no complaints. I would love to stay, however, I really need to get rolling. I hope everyone has a safe and productive weekend. Remember, we are now one more day closer to getting pounded with snow. Oh look I finally found the hiding place Freddy keeps the soda. Freddy, I'm taking the entire six pack, the money is next to the coffee pot.

Morning all. Egads, I am late but almost no one has posted? Every one must be sleeping in. Thanks for the coffee Freddy, gotta run also like the rest of you, to much to do and so little time. Not from snow or cold mind you. My son lite the Harman last weekend and everything seems to be fine. He picked up on things pretty quick. Tomorrow I have a train ride up into the lower Smokeys to enjoy the views and hopefully the leaves have turned up there. Even so the route through the gorges are fantastic. Never been on a train so looking forward to it.
Have great weekend everyone and don't work to hard,

Kevin

Freddy,you do smash it out so well in the House O'Java ! Our forecast seems to be changin' to some rainage moving in tonight,instead of the no precip weekend the Radar Boys had been talkin' about. It's a beauty right now,so I'm going to take that gift and run with it as long as I can! Enjoy it all,Gang ! Enjoy it ! :D

Good morning all,
thanks for the grub and the joe Freddie. Have not posted in some months, been healing the sick and stamping out disease or at least trying. Finally drank the cool aid and bought a Glock. Had problems and sent it back. They swapped guns and had no problem with customer service. Out to pick up the new one this am. :)

Hi all,

I've been up a while but it wasn't until I read Kevin's post that I see the sun has come up. My how time flies when you"re having fun. I was working on my Family Emergency Plan for getting back in contact with each other if we had to evacuate the area due to a national or weather emergency. We've had so many changes to our family in the last few years and looking at the tumultuous times in which we live I felt the need to get updated. I was reading in the Jerusalem Times the other day - yeah, really - and saw an article about a Holocaust survivor now living in Israel who saw a man that strongly reminded her of her father in his 50s. That man turned out to be the brother she thought had died in the Holocaust. That isn't an uncommon occurrence in Israel even after all these years. I hope I never have to use my plan but better save than sorry, especially with my son living in the far Northwest. I encourage everyone to give it some thought; particularly how'd you do it without electronics or the phone.

They tell us that the rain is finally going to clear out, wahoo!. It's still too wet to do anything outside so I'm going to get my Mark II ready for "the match." That won't take too long but will require a trip for new gaskets and a can of Stove Bright. I'm getting excited now that my November lite day is creeping closer.

DK and I are going into DC tomorrow for the "Million Vet March". I have to decide what hat to wear - NRA, my last unit hat or just the Army Vet one. I suppose if that's the hardest of my decisions today, I'm blessed. Have a great weekend and be safe, Lisa

What gives Freddy? No alcoholic breakfast beverages? I woke up to the sun shining after a week of rain and planned to have a good day. Then I went outside to prep my truck for the day's errands and my good mood was ruined. Some little bastard delinquent piece of useless *censored* kid squirted my brand new truck down with toothpaste. I have an idea of who did it and I'd love nothing more than to beat him, his brother and his clueless mother to within inches of their miserable lives. I need to get out of this lake.

I had one of those days Thursday, when my electronic POS boiler aquastat temp sensor left half itself deep within the sensing well - just got our hot water back late yesterday!


Man, talk about not enough hours in the day! I'll have mine to go too Freddy! Got sooo much on my plate - thank God for the warm weather!!

The Blazer needs the front diff looked at before the snow flies - still have that to do. The warranty replacement Walboro fuel pump is working great - turns out I was chasing a failing fuel pump. I just didn't believe it being so new, and with it's solid reputation ... but the engineers there confirmed it DOA. Anyway - at least that's done!

Still have a buddy's truck here that needs extensive exterior engine work. It's a '96, so loaded with lovely electronic wiz-bang-break gizmos. It's been here since APRIL ... really need to get on that damn thing!!

In between all this, I'm still logging the yard for extra space ... and a little firewood, just in case.

Also have a million things I need to do, and to order, before I begin the boiler install. The majority of the plumbing supplies are all set, and some will be here Monday! Great place that Pexsupply is.

Alright folks - have a goood one! Off I go! :out:
