Afternoon gents.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Congrats! Should be some fine eating for sure!

Here in PA bucks need to have at least 3 points on one side. Been that way for a decade or so now IIRC.

Well I didn't mention it because I didn't think we would be without heat this long.
Our heat pump crapped out a week ago Monday. We didn't now until the next day when I went to check the thermostat because it felt so nice in the house. We were getting a lot of sun, and it's an earth sheltered house. The thermostat was dead. Called the installer, and they checked it Thursday and told me the compressor was shot; said they'd have an estimate on Friday. By Monday afternoon I hadn't heard anything, so I went shopping for estimates. I got one yesterday and waiting for one more to show up today, and sent an email to the original installer to get it to me. I hope to make a decision by tomorrow or Friday AM.
I do have a wood stove, but it's not very efficient, and I'm running out of seasoned wood. I over estimated my supply and failed to get any good wood in last spring. We also have couple of space heaters, and as long as we can get decent sunlight during the day, the house stays fairly comfortable. Its just that my feet stay cold from the ankles down.

Good day gents.

It's sunny, and cold here.

Mornin gents

I always wondered how Adam West could land such a role as Fatman, er, I mean Batman. Guess he had help from Ed.

I do need Batman to save me from that arch villain, Mr. Freeze.

It's no wonder jobless claims are so low.

When the government keeps printing free money for people to sit on their asses, that's exactly what they'll do.

There will be a reckoning soon enough.
