Default August Mornings

Good morning DR, some cooler today and tomorrow to be pleasant......hah, we shall see. About time a few cold fronts fought their way south.....66 in the morning is the rumor now. Here's to a better August, we could stand a break. I understand the half bro thing cougar, got one 40 miles away, haven't seen him in over 20 years.

53 and rain, not expected to get much warmer. Rain in the forecast for the next week.
Finished shoring up the green thing (FRP Conex). The walls were bowed out and the roof sagging. I'm thinking I will also need to get underneath it and put a support across the middle. Right now it is only held up by the ends. Last winter the snow load was so heavy you couldn't open the doors. Still needs work, but this should keep it from folding in on its self.

GOODMORNINGDIESELRAM...overcast, trimming the Maple tree today, got side tracked yesterday. Went and bought tires for the '12 as the rebate from cooper runs out today, and being Sunday the tire shop is closed. I will have them put on next weekend. Getting ready to go to buy tires my wife says " the license on the truck expired yesterday" , so after a fun filled trip to the DMV (only 45mins) we had license tab in hand. Hope today goes better.

Still raining. Couldn't do any outside work. So after an exhausting look for non existent jobs, I settled into my easy chair with my favorite cat and took a nap.

Rainy 80's yesterday & hauled more shot rock.
Ate supper, took a nap, woke up and watched Men in Black #1 & #2 then went to bed.

Slept late today, will report today's activities after while.

Sunny low 80's today.
After Church, I took Red for a ride to Central City, Kentucky...lotsa time in the no helmet rule state with plenty of miles. When I got back in Tennessee, HWY 431 got narrow and it was a coupla miles to a pullover spot to re-helmet. Looks like that's the route I'll take in the near future. Get lotsa looks on a 36 year old bike.
Herb's gear lube is keeping the transmission quiet and shifting good.

Good morning DR, brisk start to the day, 66* on the front porch.....picked up 10k service stuff for the Glide and a set of LED turn signal lamps then ordered a LED headlight from J&P. Rode a good bit, actually kinda cool on the bike I'd like to say that Sonny's was good.....just can't though. The time with family was good need a new place to eat.
