Why thank you sir.

Got out and did some dirt work. Broke down my burn pile. It started when I was clearing the land and there was a lot of dirt in it along with everything else. Took a few hours with the backhoe and tractor.

The wife is a happy camper again. 8) Heck, she was talking of planting all kinds of flowers. Not going to happen. Still have to dig and install the rest of the sewage line right thru the middle.  :D

Of course I had to start a new pile. Did that when I dug up willow trees. ;D

Noon time, heat index at 103F and called it a day.

Just a little update. Really haven't did anything the last couple weeks. Due to heat and back under the weather. Got up out of the lounge chair and blacked out. Well, that screwed up my lower back again. >:( Still no relief from the pain, so I guess I will have to go in for a shot. >:(

Now if only we would get some rain. Very dry here. :o

Looks like the rain is coming this weekend. I just canceled an offshore trip. 90% chance in Port Fourchon for Saturday

Why thanks guys. A lot of resting going on here.


Going to be a grandpaw again in about 50 days. Was drinking my morning coffee on the patio this morning and saw this.



   She was just finishing up laying her eggs. :D

It looks like a coon found the nest and ate all the eggs. >:(

Spent the day yesterday at doctors. >:( My little fall is not good. After a week, the pain got worse. :o X-rays showed no problems, but was told the area they looking at doesn't show good with X-rays. Got a cat scan set for Monday. Have to wait due to the insurance game. >:( If there is a fracture, I will have to have surgery. :o Mean time, was told to stay off my feet and use crutches to get around. >:( They did give me some good pain pills that has helped some. ;D

Lynn, DanG coon got her nest. >:(

Still just chilling. DanG pain is not lifting off which is not good at all. :o I will know what is what tomorrow afternoon and will go from there.

Also, my transplant team told me I have to get my battery changed out soon. Less then 6 months left. That will be 5 weeks of doing nothing after surgery for that. >:( Looks like no hunting unless I use a hand gun. Haven't did that in 15 years. :D

A bit of good news and some not so good news. I do have a very small hair line crack in my hip. :( Good new, I don't have to have surgery. ;D  Bad part of that, got to keep using crutches, take it easy and go in as need for a shot into the hip. That hurt, but has helped some with the pain.

So, I will try to get out and try to fix the track on my saw mill maybe in a day or two. I have to unbolt a section and then take the rail to a friends shop. He told me he should be able to bend it back. ;D This has been putting me off sawing some more syp lumber to cover the front porch.

Also, I have to start plane out a bunch of oak boards for trim and base boards. The wife will help me there. ;D

After almost two weeks of just laying around, I got to get myself back in the game of life. Sucks being the living dead. :D

Will do Lynn. ;D Good doctor did give me this option. He did tell me it will be a problem a long time without the surgery, then again that too was going to take a long time to heal up. So, I picked the less of two evils. ;D

Got out this morning and when and pulled a track off the mill bed. Had to get the wife to carry it up to the house. Then I was able to put it in the truck. I didn't get a picture, but with the rail laying flat, one end was a good 3" bend in it. :o

Took it over to my buddies shop. Said he will get it fixed in a day or two. He has a 150 ton press and said it will be no problem to fix it. ;D

Now the my mill is under cover, I think it is about time I clean it and do some touch up paint. Starting to get some rust spots. :(

On a side note. We been getting some rain. 8) Not much, but will take all I can get. ;D
