LOL, yeah lots of people swear it's very comfortable to run naked. Even in November.

Not me, though. I wore enough clothing to be totally boring. Nobody wants to see Grandma nekkid!

I've just seen the "S" word from the forecasters about tomorrows weather.

They are saying only a 20 to 30 percent chance but still as far as I am concerned it is much too early for that stuff to start.

A snow shower or two tomorrow is ok by me. Just as long as it's clear on Saturday. That's my half marathon, and I'm going to have a hard enough time just finishing the course--don't want anything slippery falling to the ground.

Yep, rain with possibility of snow later tonight with temps dropping.

Well, at least we got DH's fairly large Mac rollaround toolcart unloaded without serious injury. It's been sitting in his puckup since Friday. Kinda looks like this:






Cal are your firefighters paid or voluntary?

Mostly volunteers, although we have some salaried firefighters for the daytime hours (since so many volunteers have day jobs). We're a funny mix of people--a lot of teens and 20-somethings, a few people who are 30-40-50, and then a lot of people who are 55+.

If you're looking for a great retirement activity, I really recommend it. Among other things, when a lot of the other volunteers are ten years older than you, and they're still doing all sort of things despite aches and pains, suddenly you don't feel old any more.

Nice mix at the fire house.

The cart is for sale if you are planning a trip to the Lake George NY area.

He downsized from the huge condo a few years ago when the writing was on the wall about the dealership going downhill. He has a bottom box about 3x6 twelve drawer, now we have this one and in the old shop is my old three stage Craftsman box, black not red. These are close representations, not actual photos.

I like the gray one, above, the one you're selling, better. What are you asking for it (not that I can get to Lake George ).

negirl, not really sure, they are 1700 new but I'd bet we'd take less than half of that. Boston is only about five hours from here......
