    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY A married man should forget his mistakes.There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

    Headed to my old patch yesterday before the storms stated in the after noon. The illegal gate that was locked before is now unlocked with the chain and lock hanging on the post. The fence builders got smart and put the top wire so tight it's impossible to open the gate. On one side of the top wire they put a staple in front of the barb then some how they pulled in the gate so very tight. Then on the other end of the top wire they put another staple in front of the barb on the other side of the post. No way to get any slack on the top wire when stappled that way. Spent my first 17 years on a farm so I went to the Toyota and opend my took box and got my wire pliers out. Here they are super heavy duty pliers. Went to the back side of the post and unwound the barb itself. Took about ten minutes but it worked. Then used the pliers and pull a little slack into the wire and bent it back over the staple to hold it in place. Finally got to my patch. Couldn't believe the weeds, taller than the cab on the Toyota. I figure their about 9 feet tall weeds. Come Sept. a lot of lightening will make some good fires there!
  3. Yes it will work good...... I use DD a lot......

    The sharing of marriage... The old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink. He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife. He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife. He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them . As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering. Obviously they were thinking, 'That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.' As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine - they were used to sharing everything People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink. Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said 'No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.' Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you are waiting for?' She answered -- 'THE TEETH.'

    On Aging ... Sixty is the worst age to be," said the 60-year-old man."You always feel like you have to pee and most of the time you stand there and nothing comes out." "Ah, that's nothin," said the 70-year-old. "When you're seventy, you don't have a bowel movement any more. You take laxatives, eat bran, sit on the toilet all day and nothin' comes out!" "Actually," said the 80-year -old, "Eighty is the worst age of all." "Do you have trouble peeing, too?" asked the 60-year old. "No, I pee every morning at 6:00. I pee like a racehorse on a flat rock; no problem at all." "So, do you have a problem with your bowel movement?" "No, I have one every morning at 6:30." Exasperated, the 60-year-old said, "You pee every morning at 6:00 and crap every morning at 6:30. So what's so bad about being 80?" "I don't wake up until 7:00."

    RD sounds like you had a good experment that went well. I'm told that the 50/50 mix with some baking soda added will really shine things up. Best put the soda in first because when you add the vinegar you'll get a small explosion of sorts.

    Here's a little story for the dog lovers here. Good Tale ... I am your dog, and I have a little something I'd like to whisper in your ear. I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life. Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the World? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of your time? That is all I ask. To slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen, of other of my kind, passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly, sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant land. I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just "One more day" with me. Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as "alpha" or as "trainer" or even "Mom or Dad," come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another's eyes, and talk. I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you something profound about myself, or even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet" -- I know what you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still. Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my ears Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self. We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short. -- Love, (on behalf of canines everywhere)

    Still fighting the weather. So instead of crying I decided to do some upkeep on the 4000. Took the battery out of the backpack, took loose the power cable and found green stuff on the threads. Been reading about the great stuff that vinegar is so decided to give it a try. Got an old tooth brush I use for cleaning things and a small cup of vinegar. Amazing how fast it gets the crud off the build up. Then decided to clean the zippers the same way. Couldn't believe how fast it frees up zippers that haven't been used or cleaned for months, now thier like new. Modem went tango uniform last Fri., five days without internet or cell service makes you do crazy things like cleaning battery terminals and zippers. Have to have goals in life so last week I had to renew my passport. Now it expires in 2028. Already making plans on getting it replaced one month early! Might take that long to clean that kilo of gold I'm going to find with vinegar.

    21-March 18 fired up the old 4000 and headed for my new prospect. Only a short distance from my house. It was a slow go because of the veggies caused by so much rain. About an hour into the hunt I heard the familiar sound of lightening starting up. Looked to the East and sure nuff bad news headed this way. Having survived one lightening strike I don't take any chances any more. Turned off the 4000, packed it back in to Toyota and headed for the house. Now today before 0600 the same action to the East. I'll have to do my crying in another cup of black coffee/no sugar.

    A REDNECK AND HIS DAWG One hot summer day, a redneck came to town with his dog, tied it under the shade of a tree, and headed into the bar for a cold one. Twenty minutes later, a policeman entered the bar and asked, "Who owns the dog tied under that tree outside?" The redneck said it was his. "Your dog seems to be in heat" the officer said. The redneck replied, "No way. She's cool 'cause she's tied up under that shade tree." The policeman said, "No! You don't understand. Your dog needs to be bred." "No way," said the redneck. "That dog don't need bread. She ain't hungry 'cause I fed her this mornin'." The exasperated policeman said, "NO! You don't understand; your dog wants to have sex"! (You gotta love this) The redneck looked at the cop and said, "Well, go ahead. I always wanted a police dog."
