Oh yeah, almost forgot Easter food drivel...

Eleven Bud long necks and a couple of gin & tonics later, Easter dinner.



Boston butt brined overnight and dry rubbed; split whole chicken (there was supposed to be a wing on that plate, but it fell apart when I tried to pick it up ). Beth's incomparably great pea salad; cole slaw; Grillin' Beans; and telero roll. Time to take a food coma snooze here shortly.

Happy Easter to all.

That looks great Mark

Here it is not even 4:00 AM and I'm wide awake

Woke up thinking about how to eradicate water hyacinths

My grandfather Daniel used to always spray them

But then they'd just sink to the bottom of the lake

He was dealing with a much bigger area than I have to though

BTDT and don't like it

I look at spraying as more of a maintenance than a repair

Thinking I still have some floating turbidity barrier

Wish I still had my JD650 dozer, I'd pull that chit right out

Then spray what's left

This pond was sprayed about 18 months ago and the hyacinths have come back already

I want to set up a camp here and start working on eradicating freakin' invasive plants. It's going to be a...it's going to suck

What's good is that I already have water and electric run down to the pond for a 220v aerator

So setting up a camp won't be too big a problem

Besides, it'll just give me one more place to hide

You must have been sick with it way longer than you first noticed it. I've had my chronic bronchitis sneak up on me slowly like that before.

It's always good when you start feeling better than you expect.

On a different topic, Courtney said she heard through Evan that there wasn't going to be anything over Memorial Day at the Scrub. ? Another schedule conflict?

We'll be there. Was discussion of heading to TN that WE for a rally. Going to spend a week in Helen, GA the 2nd week of June now instead.

See Ya Memorial Day At The Scrub?

Was also planning on going up this WE but it doesn't seem that many people are interested

Jon is on call for work.

Got a party planned for May 20th at The Swamp, bunch of folks I knew from high school are meeting there for paella before heading on down to The Bayport Inn

Cool. Going to try hard to get up there. Beth still wants to come up and meet some more of the folks. I'm hoping like Hell to have the Jeep back together by then and drive it up. Maybe go ride up and down a couple of FS roads in it. Its been one of those projects that starts small, but "while I'm in there" patch up more small stuff so I don't have to take it all apart again within a year. You know that goes.... take out the steering column to fix a loose tilt bracket. While half the gauges are out of the way take out the whole dash to weld in a patch behind a windshield hinge. While ordering new hinges, go ahead and order new body mounts to take out the body lift kit. While the dash is out, clean up all the rusty spots and repaint. While doing all this clean up stuff, try a different paint color on the body. All high labor/low budget stuff to get out of the way once and for all. It is fun to drive when I do have it together, though.

Before I forget, Paul Thorn is playing at the Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville Friday night. You and HoJo might want to check that out. And let Mallory know too, if she likes good music. He'll be selling copies of a new CD for $15, too. If I wasn't so broke right now, I'd be over there to catch the show. I saw him at the BMW MOA Rally in TN in 2009. And he is the first ever act to be invited back to the MOA Rally for a second consecutive year - he was at the 2010 MOA in Redmond OR.

PM me your email and I'll forward you the email newsletter with more info on the gig this Friday. I've switched email software and don't think I have a current address for you any more.

Hi Amber! And thanks.

This has been another one of those days. The PM storms made the lights blink once - just enough to trip the A/C unit outside and my computer CPU. It was on a surge protector, and my daughter's is not. Guess which one I'm typing this on. Yep, hers. Something else broken to deal with.

What's that old lament? Aarrrghhhh! Yeah, I think that's it.
