Well Freddy must have finally slept in this morning, I know he's been having trouble getting back on a normal sleep schedule.
I guess if I can be the guy starting 'Coffee' then Freetown Fred slept in as well !

Have a great day everyone. I'm off to a local car show that benefits a Church's building fund.. Lots of fun last year.

Good Morning,

Thanks for stepping in Greg - I thought of you the other day when I was passed on the road by a truck hauling a couple of antique cars. I was surprised that they were being pulled uncovered but what do I know about antique cars.

Getting an early start in the beeyard this morning with a trip to the hive the boys and I put in the next town over. The boys will be putting on their first honey super this morning. With any luck they will have 3 or 4 of boxes of empty honey comb by the fall for the girls to fill with surplus honey next spring. Of course the girls don't think of it as surplus honey but they are wrong. ;) Then it's back to my hives and hopefully I'll get to harvest 3 or 4 combs of honey. That should equate to 20 lbs of honey/comb. I'll put that up for future gifts.

Then I feel a nap coming on. DK and I are going to the PNats (single A ball club) this evening where it's bobble head night. I'll pick up a bearded bobble head of Jayson Werth for my collection. That gives me a batter, a couple of pitchers, a catcher, an infielder and one out fielder. I also have a manager. Just a few more and I'll have a whole team for my display.

I suppose I should mow the grass sometime but maybe not...

I hope everyone has a great weekend, take care, Lisa

*yawwwn* Huh? Wha? It's Saturday! Yup, for the first time in 2 weeks I fell into my "normal" sleep. As is was Eloise called at 6:15 & woke me, but I didn't realize it was Saturday! That may be her last morning call. She's bringing me lunch today....haven't seen her in 3 or 5 days.... but I know starting Monday she'll be turning her phone off at night. I've not called in the middle of the night, but I know she said she'd leave it on all night for 2 weeks. Time does march forward. She's getting back to her "new normal" and I'm still a mess. But, I did work half a day yesterday & have decided that come Monday I will force myself to work each day. It's what I normally, instinctively, do when I'm "in crisis", but I just haven't been able to.

Thanks for getting the coffee going Greg!

Hug your loved ones & have a smooth day.

Ohh... Lowfog... locally, three white box bee hives for sale, with bees, $150. Good deal?

Hello Everyone,
Another busy week in the books. I'm off to work for some Sat morning OT.

I need to trace down a nitrous oxide leak somewhere between the cylinder manifold room and one of the OR's. This kind of work obviously cannot be done on a typical weekday. A private contractor sold the hospital a new N2O2 manifold & regulator box 1 month ago claiming the old ( and very well built ) unit had a unrepairable leak. I inspected it a week before the change ( 5 min test ) was made and reported the leak was downstream. No one listened to me as I was am new there and the plan was already in the works. Well....a few weeks and many thousands of $$$ later, it's still leaking....downstream as I reported. Sales guys will be sales guys! (Crooks)

Freddy, hang in there. You are doing well my friend. Greg, post some pictures later. Bees.....I'd rather play with snakes! But where would we be without honey?

Take care everyone.

Speaking of tomorrow.... I'm going to go watch my buddy Joe race his Redneck Vette mud truck. I've never been it go. Last year he went 5 or 6 times and never once completed the course. Every time he either broke something or got mired. This winter he put on rice paddy wheels & tires & dumped about 11 grand into the motor. A few weeks back was the first race of the year.... he came home with a first place trophy!

And, no, I'm not driving. My cousin Chrissy is taking me. Watching mud racing is just what she loves. NOT. LOL

Hmmmm.... Joe owes me. Maybe I'll "convince" him into letting me drive it one run. Heh heh heh.

Morning all, it's Father's Day and I wanted to wish all you guys a happy one.

My wife had a huge plan for me this Father's day. She said that since I never get to sleep in she was going to get up early and let me sleep. But at 5 am I get awoken by the sounds of a freight train in the bedroom. She's snoring away. LOL

Just as well. The damn toilet is running anyway. I to and flush it to see if it'll stop. It does, but of course won't fill now. Pisses me off. I just replaced this fill valve two days ago. Today I'll be pulling it apart to clean and running to Home Depot for a sediment filter. We get so much damned sediment it's not even funny.

Yesterday at the car show my dog LOKI stole the show. While the 1915 Chandler did get a lot of attention, LOKI had to be right there to get some attention.

The turnout for the show was at least as good as last year, the weather perfect. Hopefully the church made some money for their building fund.
