Mornin gentsCoffee
Overcast here with high humidity and chance of showers, and temps in the 80s. It fits for muckin Funday.

Scrummy, how long is your new certificate good for?

May have a new tractor with backhoe by the end of the week.

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.

Mornin' all, easy Sunday here.

Picking up my 9.3x62 and .44mag on Tuesday. Rest of them will be later in the week. The .404J is still having some work done but no rush for that so will collect later on.

I remember growing up on the farm in Susquehanna County (PA) summers were usually about 85....a heat wave was 95. But it was still hot if you were out there baling hay and throwing hay bales. 

Anyway.....back to weed talk.....

Evening gents.

Just got finished hosting a picknic for my brother's birthday, my grand nephew's graduation from Army ROTC cadet school at Ft. Knox, and my other nephew's graduation from high school.
What a day. I may not cool off until January. At least I won't have to eat for the rest of the weekend.

Scrummy, glad to hear you got your certificate. Do you have your guns back yet?

My grass looks like schit. It's full of Rhizoctonia (disease), and I really don't want to buy any decent (expensive) fungicide. Been down that rabbit hole enough.

Ric,
What kills creeping Charlie?
I hear claymore mines worked really good.

Agreed. Similar products also containing 2,4-D are available. There are several species of weeds commonly referred to as "creeping charlie". Some are easier to control than others. Also, in cool season grasses, it's best to not do the herbicide application in the hot summer months. I'd wait to fall.

I have tooooo much to walk around with a sprayer. How about something in pellet form like fertilizer.

There are some granular formulations... but you need to have area measurements down quite close and apply the correct amount per area. Most product labels have language such as... apply 1# per 1000 square feet or similar. You must read the application rate info on the product label. If not, you may torch the place!

185F is near to the temp of a dark car in the Oklahoma sun when temps are 113F or more. Shocked

A Lithium battery anywhere inside a car is unsmart.  Containment is paramount and external venting should be a requirement.  Once a Lithium cell exceeds 85C it will thermally run away into fire, flames and lots of sparks.....

Good day all.
     Wishing my luck would change. We Bought a new Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit last year. It now has has 4554 miles on it. Problem started driving on HWY 69 when the dash lit up with warning to pull off the road immediately the engine is about to shut down. It did leaving us stranded still in  the roadway. Was able to restart the car and pull off the highway after a 18 wheeler almost took us out,  Called roadside assistance and they  towed the Car to the nearest Jeep dealer. The car has been sitting at the Jeep  dealer in Pryor OK for the past 2 weeks.  the Lithium battery that is installed under the front passenger seat shorted out and burned some of the electrical components attached.  No word the past 3 days as to what all is damaged or what is going on.
   Maybe Budperm can give some in site on the safety of having a Lithium Battery in an automobile passenger compartment.

   If you want a wife with a Hot Ass sitting in your car next to you, then buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Not really sure it was the Hot wife you wanted.

Well it's mid-July and we haven't had a 100 degree day yet....( maybe today...they're saying 98...) 

I can't believe all these wild and woolly Texans complaining about the heat!!  It's in the nineties, for God's sake! I'm riding around with my windows down! 

Then they complain about the cold if it goes down to sixty!!
