Yes, there is sadness here but also a calm acceptance I think. Also thankful for a life well lived.

So far Charles done ok in initial public engagements

Mornin’ all.
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

Hello folks, how goes?

All calm here.

Some reflection on 9/11 as combined with sadness about the Queen.

Evening gents

I was quite busy yesterday, and had to work this AM. I just got a chance to sit down. It's been an odd and tense weekend for me. I'm hoping the week gets better.

Scrimmy, I'm glad things are going well over there.
I still kinda have trouble with 9-11, and don't like talking about it. It made a big impact on my life.
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.

Good day gents

Down in the 50's this AM, sunny too.

Walking the dogs this AM, and came up on a doe on the trail about 20 yds in front of me. We stared at each other for a minute or two and the dogs never saw her. Then another doe came out of the bushes next to the trail and the doe, pulling her pants up. The dogs saw her, and everybody took off running.

Hello folks, mixed day here, rain and sun.

Still, hopefully be OK to be able to get out and about for a stroll this evening.

BF, sounds like a fun encounter. All so still and calm. Then bedlam. All in the blink of an eye. ;)

Good day gents

Nice day here; a little warmer than yesterday though.

Got my last filter in. Now I have to figure out how I'm going to catch, store, and dispose of 10 gallons of transmission fluid. Can't just pour it on the ground like the good old days.

I also saw 2 turtles on that walk yesterday. Mrs BF loves to see turtles, but rarely walks where the best places to find them is. One of them was about the diameter of a hickory nut. Good thing I didn't step on it.

Morning all,

Turned out sunny here this morning. Got out on the marsh and got a Mallard and Canada this morning (Dad's Mossberg 535 did the business with 3.5" steel shells).

Scrummy


(Usually try and do nicer photos but both birds landed in a particularly nasty patch of mud so that is the best angle).

Oh it's good to get out and shoot some birds you can eat.

Well the HVAC saga is finally over, I hope

Lynn, is it true you've got a good result?

Dogger, those birds are already in the freezer ;)

In a couple of weeks Mike we will be looking for some birds as well. Ducks are good but I am really craving some ruffed grouse - excellent eating!

HVAC is good. Work finally done to reasonable satisfaction, and the check was written.
I hope I don't have to go through that again.
