Good day my friends! Looks to be a beautiful day & even better tomorrow for Easter. Into the 70's? OK! Happy Easter to everyone. Come on in, the coffee is hot & scrambled eggs are piping hot. Home fries & bacon too. We treat you right. I'm sure on Monday we'll have ham & eggs.

A quick reminder, if you don't have your IRS papers in the mail....get a wiggle on! I think you've got another couple of days, but the calendar says it's panic time.

The Ice is out on Fields Pond. Nice to see the water again. The last of the snow will surley give up today, even the piles around the house will be gone. Ahhhh, nice!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter. Peace to all!
Freddy

Thanks for the breakfast, I brought some Houlton Farms butter for all. The Mrs and I have been living with her breast cancer for a couple years and now we are 3 weeks past her double mastectomy she is healing great and asking about gettin' back to work. We have family, friends, food, and coal! A Very Happy Easter to All!

Good morning. The boys and I survived the week without "momma". She got home last night at 2 AM, and is sharing a bunch of pictures with us this morning. Thankfully the weather for the lats few days was nice, and the boys and I got to do a lot of things outside. Even did a few automotive projects, and went on a secret mission to McDonald's for happy meals.

There is an Easter Egg hunt at the school playground at 0900, so that is where we are headed. After that...not much planned.

~1 week worth of coal left.

Good morning all, just a to go cup for me, I had horse feeding duty while the neighbor is away. He normally feeds around 5AM before work. I got them on a later schedule & they aren't thrilled but happy to see me. Good to here of your wife's progress MA, sure wish they would find a cure. Did a bit of trimming with the push mower myself yesterday so if the weather stays I'll be doing the first cut myself. Hope all have a safe & productive day & a Happy Easter if I forget tomorrow.

Good morning guys, I saw the surgeon yesterday and got some new x-rays. I guess I can ease back into work again. He doesn't want to see me for another 10 months. Look at the bread tie twisty on my femur. Dennis

Happy Easter to all. Just back in from opening parks ( I signed up to do that this weekend) and some errands in time to grab some more coffee. Picked up some Easter flowers for the adult women in my life and we have the granddaughters with us today. Went to a Men's Breakfast at church yesterday morning with the oldest son, the women put out a really nice breakfast for over 100 guys. Tomorrow will be an early day, I'll need to get in and check trash and open the parks up before any Sunrise service groups get in and then get home and get to early service myself. Tempus fugit.

Jumpin' Jesus,Dennis... Put some pants on Man ! Your Femurs are a'showin !!

Good Morning and Congrats on that Bionic Joint,Mister ! I'm back on a tough note,as it's time to take care of the Passing of one amazing Pup. Young Mister Ryker left Us at only 12 weeks old. He was a Rescue from Nashville,Tenn. and was adopted by my Youngest Daughter and Her Boyfriend. They gave him the best four weeks of His Young Life ! I'm tellin' 'Ya,I think He gave Us the best four weeks of Our Lives. I do believe this Little Guy had a Better Soul in Him that alot of supposed people I've met. Due to Trauma from his earlier times,most likely Litter Overcrowding and Big-Time lack of care and concern on Humans part,he had dual Hematoma's from being repeatedly bit on the ears. (Literal Pecking Order) . They had to be removed due to blood clot dangers. Poor Little Stinker never made it off of the Table. It wasn't the Vet or Her Team's Fault. This is why Vetrinary Medicine is also known as a "Practice".......

I had my Victory and spent my first ever Good Friday at The Bay,then a quick 110 miles back to help Liz & John get over Ryker's loss,and then back to The Bay for Easter ! Us Dad's are very capable of Spiritual,Magical,and,just plain Generally Whacked-Out Things ! Ryker wasn't "Just A Dog"..... I've never met a Pup like him,so time to help with the Loss and Grief.... He Helped Us !

I relate All of this due to the fact it does tie in with Easter. Something about sharing and taking care of The Family.... It's more of a feeling than something I can put down in words,but somehow some Little Brown Bear Pup as I liked to call him,gave Us some short but intense reinforcing on just how much Love can matter in Our Lives......

May You Be So Fortunate To Have Some Of That Love Sent To All Of You In Your Lives !! Happy Easter !!

Thanx,Ryker !

Glad to hear that Dennis, getting back. O it will help with your recovery just don't over do it :yes: , Sorry to hear about the the puppy HB, I'm sure you guys gave him 110%, that's the BS part of life as the time is so short and every living thing will pass :no1: .
Ok it's not raining at the moment so I'm going to try to finish, take care friends and have s Happy Easter :)

Good evening and a happy Easter to all tomorrow.

I was scheduled to work this weekend but had to take off to attend a funeral for an uncle. Getting older means more funerals but such is life, I took tomorrow to go with my wife to visit her family.

We were in Florida two weeks ago and it was beautiful but who needs Florida with weather like this? This weather also makes the Keystoker easy to tend.

All taxes were sent electronically Friday and all have been acknowledged received. I can’t help but procrastinate every year. I usually finish the on TurboTax in March but sit on them ‘till the last minute. You never know if you remember something plus you have the most updated version of TurboTax.

All the best to you and the Mrs. Michaelanthony.

Sorry about Ryker Hambden Bob, losing pets just sucks. I have a 14 and a half year old and it makes me ill to think about it.

Interesting picture pintoplumber, when I saw the word “erect” in the upper left I got scared and had to bail out. I really don’t want to know what was erect but I hope everything goes well and we will leave it at that.

Later folks.

Happy Easter indeed...I worked today and then came home and scrapped popcorn ceiling off with the wife......but it came off really great!
Embroiled in a fight with real estate agency as they sold me the home and didnt disclose the covenants and restrictions.......which negate why I bought this overpriced home to begin with.....the ability to build a shop on that back lot that is just a liability that I have to mow otherwise...... :x Gonna get interesting. Fla. is not looking so bad to us gaw.......my old business partner had a glorious winter down theaah.....
