Egads, Zug, the 'S' word!!!!!! Noooooooo!!!!!

negirl, I think I remember that storm, my stepsister in CT was powerless for a week, not a generator in the stores.

44F here, I have the propane wall heater going up in the shop. I got DH out and about twice last week and he loved it. Tractors were started and moved, we took apart a transaxle, relegated some stuff to the scrap pile. We are going up again today, going to move some more tractors into the garage, take photos for ebay. It's a great day on the Cub ranch!

Stay warm and be thankful my friends. <3

We were there for that October snowstorm. Snow and leaves on trees are a recipe for trouble and no power; we owned a generator and were grateful for it.

It's 68 here today with heavy breezes, going down to 48 tonight, a two day cold front and warming back up on Monday. I need to find my jeans for walking the dog tomorrow morning.

MIL flew down on Thursday and DH stopped at her place after work and got it opened up and the water turned on. He got groceries for breakfast and lunch and a few essentials. He picked her up at the airport and they got back to her place around midnight. He had taken a vacation day and stayed until late afternoon on Friday and did odd jobs for her before coming home. Women really should pay attention to how a man treats his mother, it speaks volumes.

Wow, what a high school move. Actually, that's an insult to high school girls; they've gained some maturity by that age. It's more like a middle school move. Of course, they'd be doing it by sending and then blocking tweets rather than DMs, but it's the same thing.

Sorry to disappoint you, it's not a move. I thought ER was already a "friend" when I dm'd him, did not realize he could not reply without being a "friend." So, onto something else to theorize about.

Just saw The Judge, wondering what others thought about it. Duvall is good, but imo it's another father-son thing. Slow moving.

I also went to see Gone Girl, after reading the book. Both interesting, though I like the action/thriller films better than slow psychological dramas.

In the Netflix queue: House of Cards. I hear it's good.

I still haven't seen Lincoln. I've got it on HOLD until hubby finishes the curry.

I turned the heat on in the house last night for the first time since last March.

Otherwise I've been enjoying the fall foliage and the brilliant blue autumn skies.

Ever notice how intensely blue the sky looks this time of year?

Any blue sky day is much appreciated. I never noticed more intensity, perhaps the angle of the sun?

Our heat has been on and off the last few weeks. It was only 32 F this morning, but somehow didn't seem as chilly as yesterday. We will barely crack 40 today but will be warming up into the mid fifties by Tuesday. The Oak King has not lost the battle yet.

Pondering Christmas gifting ideas.

My niece hates clothes so I'm going to wimp out and do the gift card. All she wants are games on her Ipod or whatever. She's no fun to shop for anymore.

My BFF and her DH are easy, anything with camo or gun related.

The bluest skies I've ever seen have been in the Colorado high country. The blue is incredibly saturated. Sad, broken Colorado: it was once paradise; now the majority of people there voted to trade their Second Amendment rights for street drugs.

Give her a gold coin. There's something about a gold coin. I received my first one for Christmas when I was 9 yo. It's still a treasured possession. It was also a big step in becoming an adult.

Do they like black powder guns? Here are a couple of cuties which you can buy direct. You can search gunbroker.com as well. They're great stocking stuffers.

North American Arms Cap & Ball

Guns for Sale - Online Gun Auction - Buy Guns at GunBroker.com

Do they cast their own bullets? If so, here's a nice item. There's a book from the manufacturer with an in depth explanation.

Here are a couple of neat stocking stuffers. It's hard to find fresh brains and tripe as well as canned, but here they are.

Thanks Happy!!!!!

I give her a Pandora charm every year. Maybe they will come out with a pistol one. She just got her carry permit last year.

We are lucky to have the world famous Oscar's Smokehouse less than an hour away. She loves the smoked kielbase.

I don't know if they have the stones to try sweetbreads, he won't even eat chicken livers; he uses it for fish bait. If you want something divine, sautee chicken livers in real butter and sherry or port, it's to die for.

They don't cast their own ammo, but they used to reload. I was going to sell my black powder pistol. I dunno if ebay allows it, though. ETA they do not. Only parts and non firing wall hangers.

I thought they voted for legal pot, I didn't know it was a trade off.....

Thanks for the kind thoughts!
