My schedule has been changing a little over the last 2 months, but it should be back to normal by the time this rolls around, and I should be off, maybe.  If I'm off, I plan to make it at least for saturday, like I did the last 2 years.  It could be longer and it might even include MrsY, if the weather is to her liking.  Time will tell.

There are 134 days between now, May 4th, and September 15th.

The smell of those slow cooking ribs is getting stronger!

:thumbs-up:  :jumping-for-joy-smiley-emoticon  :agreed-with-sign: 

129 to go.  The cooks are looking for temperature control helpers.

John has something up his sleeve?  Hey I think I know how he is going to surprise everyone.  He is going to work all summer on his Potato bike and show up with it running even if it is only on 2 cylinders. :roflmao:

 

Wonder if the HD couple we hijacked last summer and got into the photo will be riding thru the park again?

 

Also wonder if Dusty Boots will have over 400,000 miles on his bike by then.  Have seen on the weather where he has had some good days to ride up his way.

 

Estella got her Mothers Day gift yesterday.  Fifty bags of cypress mulch.  Sold another treasured special tool that I will never again use to get her mulch. We are laying down green house roof plastic before spreading mulch.  Managed to pull a muscle in my back wrestling those bags off Frankentruck.  Spent the evening and so far this morning with a heating pad on it.  Have to get it feeling good so we can ride this weekend pulling the camper somewhere to escape the constant "WE GOTTA DO" things such as mowing grass which is high on today's list.  Now we just have to figure out where to go camping.  Been looking at some free sites but have found in comments by those who have been there the reports are bad.

Hey Thanks Lemon.Dang,I didn't EVEN know about this and my camp is 5 miles north of Vienna AND i was THERE at the time.

Heading out for Vienna in about 10 minutes. 

I am SO sorry i didn't get back on here in time to see this posted Randy.Doggone IT!!! I have a place y'all can camp,with electric and water FREE.3 separate campsites,a pavillion,a clean porta potty,and fire ring with firewood. Even have access to the shower house 300 yards away at our property. Monkey Trucker,next time you decide to camp somewhere,give me a call to see where i am at.I just got home (Mansfield) from being at my southern property for over a month.

 

 

ANYONE of you,if you are traveling near Paducah,or Southern tip of ILLinoy (Vienna) get a hold of one of these fellers that has my # and give me a call or Text.Hopefully i will be at Redneck Paradise and you will love your free campsite.Might even drink a couple beers and fire-up one of my grills or smoker for supper.

 

I need to hide a key to one of the entrances,and give the code to the shower house so y'all could help yourself.

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone again.Got my on a couple nice lookin'pigs.

Just might take you up on that.   Things here are over whelming us so a break for a couple nights would help.  

 

The home health group has instituted a crazy rule.  If you are gone and your home health  person cannot make their time with you they can put you too the back of the line and you lose your person.  Ours has been with us for one and a half years and we would hate to lose her.  She can read us like a book and that is great and she laughs at my jokes even when they have a little color to them.

 

We are having to sell my prized 1941 slant dash John Deere A and my 1950 Allis-Chalmers CA with a belly mower.  Also our Chevy Astro Van.  For those of you who have heard an old 2 cylinder JD under a load know what the other motor heads are missing.  JD fired both cylinders on the same revolution and then coasted on the fly wheel on the next revolution.  Under a load that made the front end jerk up and down. Hand clutch and turning brakes.  Turning the front wheels while it is not moving is a study of true muscle power.  You usually had to stand up to do that and even when driving standing was more comfortable than sitting.

Hey Buck, I forgot to mention that on Monday August 21st your southern property is going to be in the path of the total eclipse of the sun.  Don't miss it.  You need to have your video camera pointed at the sun with a couple of arc welding filters on it.  It is supposed to be very special at the moment of total eclipse.

We are preparing! What is wild is,the longest duration of total eclipse is DIRECTLY OVER THE TOP OF MY PROPERTY (2 mins and 40 seconds) 

I ordered 50 pair of eclipse glasses to hand out to friends and guests August 21st.Also,if you are interested.... :roflmao: OZZIE Osborne will be at Walker Bluffs Winery a few miles away,Moonstock. Gonna be a h e l l u v a 2 min and 40 sec excuse to throw 12 hour party at my place,i'm sure.
