Our Roadmaster tells a funny story.  He was plowing a new development that had only about three occupied houses, and he was cruising pretty good with no traffic around.  He was turning a corner, and sent the port-a-john flying.  He did stop to check that it was empty before he went back to the Township building. 

Save a farm today or starve tomorrow.

We are well into the 70s now so the Grits would cook if you put them on the road.  :o

   You can even use dry grits to mix with tiny seeds like turnips and such so you can see where you have planted. Dad went to our local store one time and told Miz Elsie, the owner, he needed 5 lbs of grits and they could be old buggy ones as he was going to plant them, not eat them. Miz Elsie said she had never heard of anyone planting grits and dad told her "Oh yeah, it works great. The grits sprout first and shade the baby turnips keeping them from getting sunburned and stunted." Miz Elsie did not appreciate the humor in his reply.

We hit it in Tennessee, then Virginia, then out of it in Pennsylvania, then back in it crossing the hutson  in NY, then all the way to Mass. The car and SUV got quite salty!

I remember back ion the 70's when a guy in Texas got back from working on the pipeline in Alaska and he was interviewed by a news reporter.
They talked quite a bit about the conditions he worked in, at the end of it he was asked if that was the coldest he had ever been. He told them, heavens no, the coldest I heve ever been was sitting in a deer stand in Llano Texas. lol

My neighbor,Butch, was a pipe line welder in Wyoming in the early '80's.

He was workin' with a fella from Texas one gnarly November day and the geese were heading south.The fella started packing up his gear.Butch says,"What are you doing?"Fella says,"I'm going south,them geese aren't smarter than me."

Guys, we are being inundated with Ice.  The temperature is down to a bone chilling 42 and we now have a serious accumulation of sleet.

The last septic system install of the year should get inspected tomorrow,,hopefully covered Monday,and dirt work will be done for this year.If we can hold off snow until after Christmas,maybe I can have time to work on a toy a little.I vote no snow also.
