One more band of rain on its way

Rode down the road to look at my Uncle Joe Nick's pond

That fooker was dry a few weeks ago

Not now

One poor fooker, an attorney from Tampa built a log cabin in it

That's right, "in it"

Couple of years ago he had his house jacked up an entire floor

The bottom, now concrete block is under water

The house litterally looks to be on an island

Only thing above water is his newly built-up driveway

A few weeks ago this would not have made sense to me, now it's perfectly true.

Well, for some things Vaseline or Crisco hold up in the wet pretty good. But for hardware stuff I love beeswax. I buy it in sticks in metal tubes kind of like giant Chapstick. Ace or most hardware stores carry it. Most common brand name I've seen is "Door Ease".

Well...

All this rain has got scallop season on the fritz

Tain't no scallops around here

They apparently have run into a negative salinity curve that they don't much like

I bet they're stacked on top of each other someplace north of here with clear enough water to grow grass beds in deeper water

Glad I didn't waste my time scalloping after all this rain

HoJo and I canoed while Hailey kayaked the Weeki Wachee today instead

A friend emailed this to me - some bike art for the discriminating viewer:

With A little spare time see what you can do...


add a little spare time and a few old watches, you too can be an artist. talk about imagination and skill ..........

This gentleman has talent............lots of talent and apparently lot of old watches.......these are beautiful.............C



<>_<>re use -old watches<>_<>
Finally, those living in the USA can buy Ukrainian-made motorcycles! Production of Ukrainian Harleys was launched by Ukrainian immigrant Dmitry Khristenko who now lives in the States. Dmitry makes his motorcycles using old watches.
