Thanks doc! There is one sub form that isn't, but that was set from last spring and we'll just pour over it and leave it.

Kids doing their school work. They've been that close every since. They're not twins (14 months apart), but you wouldn't know it.

They've been doing home schooling since October of 20 when their school teacher (they are in the same grade, as the boy skipped a grade) was having them help teach their classmates instead of challenging them with advanced work.

Here's some of the lumber for the barn build. Had to go to Louisiana. 6.5 hour drive one way. Saved about 5.2k.

Spent 2k rebuilding the orange trailer. Had 3.5k axles that were junk and no brakes. Put 2, 7.5k axles and 14 ply tires under it. Added 3" c-channel cross members. Put 4" c-channels under the original 4" c-channel hitch frame. Then added a 1/4" x 12" x 10' plate to strengthen the angle frame from the hitch 4" c-channel back. 

Hope to dig footings this week.

Here's the wife's bill from the hospital for her 36 hour stay. It doesn't include the doctors bill and some other costs. Now she's wearing a heart monitor 24/7 for a month. It records any heart rhythms that aren't normal. After that they will decide if an ablation surgery is needed

Here where we went last night for mothers day after we planted some garden. We got there at 8:45, so was getting empty. It's now my favorite local place for the ambience. 1st time there. My bride also liked it. The food for me, not so much, but I'll give it another try since we were so late. The rest of them loved their food. The bar was awesome.

Got some taters in. Trying indeterminate taters that's why the raised sides. Also with good early and late blight resistance.

Got the starlink dish installed finally. Speeds are amazing except for our vizio TV and our Samsung blu-ray player. Laptops and my phone in same room run fast. TV can't play a movie without continuously stopping to buffer...... customer support. Not so much

 

It was cool though to see the dish move around looking for the satellite

I did make my own pipe connection. They wanted like $100 bucks for one

Maybe it's the satellite part but that speed is very quick, faster than I usually get on cable (that is supposed to run at 100mbsp) but we have no buffering issues on anything. When the kids are around we often stream something to each of their phones or tablets and the big tv in the living room with essentially zero buffering...

 customer service sent a message about checking what band the TV was on. They want it on the 2g one. i'll see what that is and if it can be done tonight perhaps. got ballgames though, so we'll see

Always in 3's for those helicopters... I don't know why. There was a while when they were flying those all over Dayton for several days. Pretty cool but I also assume they are looking for something. Maybe not...

military has lots of mandatory flight hours and training and stuff. i didnt know any pilots being in a repair squadron but its pretty well understood when you live on a base.  they fly them just to fly them.  touch and go's all day long.. just land, take off, circle, land, take off.  that sorta thing.
