No skiing for me 
 
Off to do battle with the forces Badger? Thanks for the cute laughs on the humor thread.
 
Enjoy your day off MB. I am craving the same.
 
C&C - thanks for the pics. Glad it was fun despite the rain.
 
Bernie - get to it and hope it is a much better week physically.
 
Go Cowboys!

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
  Mostly sunny in the forecast for today. Our beach high 86 degrees. Currently 78F at 7:02
 
  Yesterday I finally made it out to the beach. It was sunny with a warm breeze and not very crowded at all for a Sunday. The beach was surprisingly in good shape and the high water mark from the hurricane was apparent but not too much debris. I didn't want to push myself and stopped after 1/2 hour but it did feel so good to be outside in the hot sun and fresh ocean air. I stopped at Sharky's on the island for a cold beer and then went home for lunch : sardines with mustard on saltine crackers.
 
  About 3 weeks ago one of my neighbor's stopped at my house when driving home from work. I was out cutting my grass and they wanted to let me know that their 14 YO son is trying to earn some $$ by cutting lawns. So I called Sara yesterday morning and left her a message that I would like to hire Christian when he was available. Christian said he could do it after school today, so that's about the only thing I have for today.
 
  PJ, your wish was granted. I took my normal group of beach pictures yesterday. Will post soon. Once you reminded me who "Uffda" was, my memory kicked in. I met Joyce and Mike in 2009 sitting inside the Lol Ha with the ZZ's. I bought them a shot of tequila and sat with them a while to chat. I had forgotten about that memory until you put the words "Uffda and Joyce" together. Mike was a biker dude and there were some group LG meetings back then,  up there somewhere in New England. Hope Joyce is doing well.
 
 Gem, I spotted your 'letter flip' when you posted yesterday and got a chuckle about it. I know Badger would catch it. By the way, how did the lion taste ? hee,hee
 
  nipper, glad all OK with you guys after the hurricane.
 
  Cindy, glad you got to make the family reunion. It was funny to see the buckets of KFC mixed in with a the home cooked food. Had to chuckle. Thanks for the pictures.
 
 Beach pics to follow.
 
 Coffee time over.
See y'all,
Bernie

Folks, I want to wish each of you a hearty good morning. I've been away again, this time to the Northern Maine Woods, Chesuncook Lake, 3 nights and 4 days. When folks think of Maine, they probably envision a rugged rocky coast, but Maine is a large state, larger than the rest of New England combined. I have a good deal of pictures from this trip, and I've whittled them down, but this place is something else to behold. (If I say so myself). 
First up, this is the view we took in for 3 days from our campsite:

And from out on the water out front:

You can see how much the water level was down. While discouraging, we still enjoyed this immensely.

The night view wasn't bad either. We'd stay up and watch the stars. We could see planes flying overhead (by their flashing lights) and we even saw 4 satellites glide overhead. They look like stars but moved as fast as planes and were only white(reflections from the sun which had not set far enough yet), and they all went in the same direction. Kinda neat!

I just love the look of this morning fog!

 As the fog was burning off.

We saw lots of these fellers:

These birds were content to pose for me

This was the view from our last campsite:

Pictures from a bygone era. These rings could be found here and there. They used these to tie up dams to hold the logs from logging days.

A concrete structure in the water. Normally, this would be about 8-10 feet deeper, and you'd never see this.

It took me a while to realize there were two herons here:

Don't you just love this view?

As the water was so low, you could see how a beaver house is built with the underwater entrances completely exposed. We did not see a beaver this entire trip.

This trip was a relaxing one. Nothing especially new or any earth shattering discoveries. We did some fishing and camping. We shot a lot of bull around the campfire. It rained for a day, but that is what Goretex is made for. (Kinda glad one guy bailed on this trip, as he'd have been whining to go home 2 days early.) It was just so nice to get away and get out there. The air is so clean and the area so pristine.... Mac lit a fire up, and I could smell the sulfur from his match over 100 feet away, as I was standing near an outhouse I could not smell. (The rangers toss enzymes in them to aid in decomp and it works!). 

For those wondering about such trips. There are all kinds of outfitters who will set you up for a "reasonable" cost. They will provide a guide, first and last day lodging as well as the trip itself. They will also rent and sell anything you need, of course. But.... if you live within a day's journey of this area (5 hours from my home), and own a kayak or canoe, and have all the camping gear, this is a surprisingly affordable trip. For comparison, a no utilities campsite in Acadia goes for about $35.00 a day. A good fair price. To camp here, the costs are: $22.00 gate fee, which gains you access in and out (beginning and end of trip), and $6.00 a day to camp, all per person. So, for one person, this 4 day trip cost me $46.00.  Yes, you read that right! $46.00 for 4 days of real Maine woods camping. Fishing every day. Fresh air. No noise. No litter. Well maintained campsites with privy and picnic table and tent sites. (EDIT: I believe the day rate for anyone out of state is $12.00 per person per day).

I want to be kind of careful how I say this, but if anyone wants to join me on such a trip, I'd be glad to share such a trip. I do own four kayaks with paddles and PFD's. You never know who really wants to do such a trip. Your costs would be, beyond your gear, of course, travel to the location. We could rendezvous at the gate, or some restaurant, or where ever. You need to be comfortable sleeping on the ground (it's soft and we use bed pads). It will be after July 4th, because of the Maine state insects. We'd have to compare gear to make sure you have what you would need (head to toe gore tex, head to toe fleece, swim wear, cooking gear, water filter, other stuff, but most important that you own a fishing pole! LOL!!!) You need to be reasonably proficient in a canoe or kayak, etc... I'd expect no payment. Having friends along for such a trip is bonus enough for me. I'm just offering, everyone, myself included, thinks these trips are arduous and hard to arrange, or hugely expensive. They are not, but you have to get here. 

Anyways, I gotta hang my tent up to dry for storage and the usual after adventure stuff. 

Have a great day all!

PS, Bernie, my steps stayed put! I even have a beach picture, but I like your beach better!

Good morning BCers!
Beautiful here.  No rain for us.  A high temp of 95F this afternoon.
Finished most of my weekly chores.  Back to cleaning up the junk room.  
Hall closet needs to be cleaned out as well.  Looks like a bomb went off in there.
 
 
Gem,  I laughed and laughed at how Uffda/Joyce has been getting all of us LGs to unknowingly say xit for years.
Love your car tags!  Pork loin looked delicious.  
 
Cindy,  food for family reunion looked delicious!  That blueberry breakfast casserole is the bomb.  Yum!
Glad you enjoyed your time with family.
 
Nipper,  so glad the hurricane didn't cause much damage in your neighborhood.
Wow! On the pic of the crane collapse. 
 
Bernie,  thanks for beach pics.  Looks lovely there.  
 
MB,  speaking of packing.  Was missing some of the new summer clothes I purchased on clearance late winter.
Yesterday I finally remembered putting them in that big suitcase.  The one we haven't used since Mexico trip in May.
Outta sight out of mind.  Then I remembered that you laughed at me when I did it.  LOL
 
Wishing everyone a great day!

Morning all
 
Cindy, scrumptious food porn.  Thank you.
 
Uffda!  Gem, I knew I'd get it wrong...I debated Scandanivan or Norweigen.  And I apparently spell both of them wrong or this old PC isn't familiar with those countries.
 
The KC game was GREAT!  They were on fire and ready to kick some rear ends!  Now that Tyreek Hill is back on board, he was injured early.  The Jags were flagrantly gunning for Mahomes.  Once he limped off the field but got his foot and ankle taped up and returned.   Lots of missed calls by the refs.  Several semi fights broke out.  Finally the refs started penalizing them.  In the 4th qtr, the game was pretty lopsided so the station announced that they were switching to "a more competitive game"!  WHAT???  They must have been flooded with complaints because a few minutes later they announced "Network difficulties" with the KC game.  We were switched to the Browns game and then to the Jets.  I went to the pool where I spent most of the afternoon exercising or reading.  I was so into my book, I never did check on the rest of the games and outcomes.  I did see that the Patriots were kicking the Steelers rear ends. 
 
I know some of you are experiencing this heat!  Even I admit it's too hot lately.  I passed on a couple of invites to get out because it's just too hot.  The temps aren't too horrible but the humidity is.  I've had to turn the A/C lower just to keep the humidity to a tolerable level.  We are supposed to get a bit of a cool down this weekend and a bit of rain is possible.  Mid to upper 80's looks good compared to mid to upper 90's with this humidity.  This is not what the farmer's Almanac said!
 
I got distracted and forgot anything else I might have commented on.  However I do remember cheap airfare in May.  Not from here on AeroMexico unless I want to spend all day changing planes.  Delta isn't wavering in prices.  AA thru Dallas is always delayed and even though I have miles on AA, I won't use them unless forced to.  
 
Enjoy the day!

AH Yes, that Crane incident.  I did see that collapse on our local news.  Scary for sure.
 
Bob, I must have crossed posts with you and PJ earlier.  Great pictures.  How nice of you to invite people to go with!  Looks like fun IF i was in better shape.
 
I just took a few minutes to see what is going on with ALL the LG forums...NOTHING!  Only 3 threads on the main RM forum!  And some of those inactive for weeks.  NO trip reports in 30 days.  Nothing within 90 days on the parties forum.  It sure has gone downhill.  Nothing like the old days.  The BC thread is the only active thing left.  Things change...

AFternoon all.
 
I'm still here...doing the florida retiree thing in God's waiting room. Our August and September = January and February up north. Worthless months, imo.
 
Thanks for your concern about Dorian. Fortunately, It was never an issue for us, but I was a little worried about you Bernie. 
And Nipper..a cat 2 in the north atlantic? Ai carumba!
 
MB..tick tock! Sargasso has be nil lately. Hope it continues. Crunch, you too. November should be nice.
 
Jamie...I am glad to hear you are getting the room service you deserve. 
 
Gem...nice ride. My neighbor has a X5 that I start for him every two weeks. I am tempted to take it on a long ride to Vancouver to see SoSo.
 
Badger...you are due for a trip.
 
C&C..it's nice to see Joey so happy. 
 
Beachbilly...today the monday after Sunday night football, and you don't have to work today!
 
Twirls..I thought of you the other day when I was in the grocery store.  


A world of my own
I'll make it my home sweet home...

Good evening.  63 and cloudy.  Off and on rain the better half of the day.  Davey tree stopped out unplanned, which worked out great.  Was upstairs cleaning and Maya, my watch kitty, came up to bathroom to let me know an "intruder" was here.  Patrick and I walked the long walk back and discussed project. Glad he arrived before the rain hit.  If any issues come spring, they will definitely address them.  They are very reputable and probably why you pay the bigger $$$.
 
New PC is ready to be picked up at Best Buy and need to get the Toyota to dealership in the morning.  Got lots done today taking down small kitchen wall items.  Sorting through to save, donate or dispose of.  Made good progress.
 
Cindy, your dishes looked so good.  What kind of smoked ham did you use?  Glad you had a good time in spite of the rainy weather.
 
Twirls, thanks for the phone visit this evening.  Enjoy that H y H.  Sometime soon you shall be missing it chica.  
 
Bernie, good job on the shorter beach walk.  Keep it going while the heat is on and you're inspired to do so.  Too easy to become complacent with no activity.
 
Hey Bob.  Thanks for the invite to a whole different world I am not familiar with. I've done fishing, kayaking and tent camping in MN and WI. I've never been to the east coast so surely enjoy your adventures and beauty of that part of our country, Thanks for the extended invite.  
 
Gem....dang that pork lion looked fabulous.  Hope it tasted as good as it looked.
 
Badger, you are a funny one for sure.  Thanks for the chuckles.  My best to Babs.
 
Crunchie, how were those spinach balls yesterday?  Would like the recipe please for upcoming Gopher game tailgate party.  Will they hold up and what sauce, if any, is needed?
 
Time to eat.  Manana, MB.

Good Morning
Rain coming down and temps going up. Fall-like weather no more, will be back to H&H the rest of the week. Guess I won't be mowing today...
 
Gem, that looks like some very tasty lion!
 
Bosco, nice of you to check in, finally. And that Hatch Chile wine?  That is about the worst and cheapest-looking labeling I have ever seen. Took my mind immediately to names like Boone's Farm, Bali, and all those cheap wines of misspent youth. Plus, it just sounds...yuck. Or maybe, upchuck.
 
LOL on someone spotting the KFC. My brother's and I were chuckling about that, too. Called it the ghost of Aunt Betty. She always used to bring it to the picnic. There was a woman who truly didn't know how to boil an egg.
 
Hola to all I've missed, time to get going. Have a wonderful day!
Cindy

MB - that recipe is posted on the evil FB by Tomas. They are yummy and hold up fine. No sauce as that would be desecration LOL! 
 
Yum Gem. We baked this tiny little store bought pork loin to go with more spinach balls for dinner. It looked nothing like the one you posted. Not even in the same league!
 
Hi Bosco - nice to see you poke your head out. Still crazy hot here too.
 
I laughed about the bucket of KFC too.

Exactly Bosco. Dorian was a very powerful storm and it didn't hit land on its way here, after the Bahamas. There are still over 100,000 customers without power but thanks to all the power crews from New Brunswick and Maine for their help. Schools throughout the province were closed yesterday and still today.
We were glad of the generator.

AASB 2018 created good memories. Getting ready for 2019!!

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
  Mostly sunny skies due today with a high of 87 degrees at Ocean Isle Beach. Current temp is 77F at 7:34
 
  Yesterday I was able to increase my walking a little to 40 minutes on the beach. Afterwards a BLT at Fibber's.
 
 Christian showed up to cut the grass at 3:30. I had to snicker as he arrived on a skateboard. Gassed up my mower for him and gave quick operation instructions. Part way through cutting the front yard, he stopped cutting and had the mower in the street, looking at the left rear tire. The adjustment for the tire height was not working. I could see that the bolt to hold it securely to the mower was missing. Christian said he would go home and get his Dad's mower to finish. He returned shortly and did a great job. 
 
  I was fiddling in the garage, trying to find a nut and bolt replacement to repair the mower when Chet strolled over to see what was up. He helped me make the repair and I was glad he came over, as it was easier with two people : one to hold the adjustment lever in place over a hole on the mower frame and the other person to push the bolt through that frame hole and into the adjustment lever. Chet added the nut onto the bolt while I kept everything aligned. Tightened the nut and tested the lever. Done. Time for Chet and I to have a cold beer. 
 
  Today I want to get back on the beach for a walk and then maybe some breakfast at Nell's afterwards.
 
  Bob, thanks for all the pictures. Nice hiking and camping area. Did you guys catch fish and have them for dinner at the camp fire ?
 
  Bosco, sounds like you and Connie need a trip to PoMo to get away from all that excitement in Florida ? So did you buy a couple of bottles of that Chile Wine ? ha,ha. That stuff sounds horrible.
 
 Gem, did you shop in the same store as Bosco for that bourbon ? hee,hee. Pork loin looks good. How did it taste ?
 
  Hi MB, Crunch, Cindy, nipper.
 
Time to get moving along.
See y'all later,
Bernie

Morning all
 
Got up at 6:45 to get Tigger cat to the vet for shots and shaving.  He has too many matts of fur in his long hair.  I've tried getting them out but he won't stay still and they are close to his skin.  Chris wrangled Tigger into the carrier cage with LOUD protests from Tigger.  He continued to howl the short way to the vet.  When arrived inside with 2 more cats in for the same.  It was a kitty chorus of howling and yowling back and forth between the 3 cats.  Almost comical.  Our turn to check in and...his appointment is tomorrow!  UUFDA!
 
It's cool and moist this AM.  Moisture content is up so maybe a pop up shower or storm.  Expected high of at least 90.  
 
There is a US Treasury auction of unclaimed safe deposit box contents in town today.  I want to go but I'm afraid I'll buy something!  LOL!  A lot of it is jewelry but there is some baseball cards and comic books.  Lots of Misc.  I want to venture there since I'm up and dressed but I'm fighting it because I know I am an auctionaholic.  Probably every jeweler and collectibles dealer in the country will be there.  Maybe I'll just go to breakfast.  That's safer. 
 
It's doggie breakfast snack time.  Margarita is nudging me.  Later.

Good morning BCers!
Another blue sky and 90 degrees plus day here. 
Still working on clearing out junk.  Found some lost items.    
How SJ's jewelry box of cufflinks got into a box in the hall closet is a pure mystery.  
Been lost for years.  
 
Yesterday around 10 a.m. while outside with the pets...heard lots of sirens coming from both sides of the river.
Then LifeFlighter helicopter came over the house and landed down below at the truck stop. 
Turns out a man on a motorcycle coming over the bridge hit the concrete guard rail. 
Launched himself over the bridge rail.  Fell 60 ft into the TVA wetlands down below.
He is hurt bad.  But amazingly still alive.  Pray he recovers.   
 
UpHill, what an awesome place to camp.  Just beautiful!
 
Bosco,  good to see your post.

Good evening.  Summer weather returned today.  77 and sunny now.  Another busy day.  Up to Toyota and they did an inspection and diagnostic which led to replacement of EGR valve.  An hour later, a tech and I talked and I told him not to order the part, as I wanted to check my service records.  Can you believe that same valve went out in October, 2003 at 30,000 miles.  Some sort of emissions thingy that sets of the check engine light.  I've got the part ordered and will get the vehicle fixed sometime soon.  Then did a return at Bed, Bath y Beyond and stopped at local dentist office.  Periodontist has not sent either or us new proposed plan which necessitated another call with no answer or call back from them.  Made a much need cut/color appointment with my years' long salon specialist for late September. 
 
Cindy, forgot to say that I can't do naps either.  Tried one years ago.  Got up cranky and wrecked my sleep later in the evening.  I prefer to run myself ragged so I can pretty much crash.  
 
Bernie, keep those walks up.  Good on you.
 
Crunchie, I have to check out the recipe on FB.  Just haven't had the time yet.  Thanks.
 
Bosco, thanks for checking in.
 
PJ, hope SJ gets the answers soon.  Bummer appointment was pushed out.  I'm sure it is frustrating.
 
Bob, thought of you today while waiting for my car at dealership, I was reading an article in Country Living about the Shaker's. It was an interesting read about their furniture building and culture about equality and celibacy.
 
Badger, the heat and humidity was on here today.  Lots of rain expected the next couple of days here.  Hope you get the roof done soon.
 
Twirls, get your travel plans figured out chica.  Hope you can find more affordable flights. Such a game with the airlines.
 
Time to fire up the charcoal grill.  Have a beautiful eve all.  MB

Bernie, glad to see you are back to taking your beach walks, always enjoy the pics.
 
PJ, isn't SJ's hand appointment due soon? Hope he gets some answers and better yet, relief.
 
MB. hope the man will be OK, sounds serious.
 
Gem, beautiful looking roast pork.
 
Bob, beautiful countryside, nice invite. Only tried camping once, when I went white water rafting with another girlfriend. Not for me, thanks anyway. Glad you enjoy it so much though along with your hiking and kayaking.
 
Insurance will be sending someone to give me some physiotherapy, 5-6 sessions over the next 2-3 weeks, hopefully it will help me get some leg strength and tone back. For those who asked, my Meals on Wheels will start next week sometime, maybe Monday. Will give a report. Weather continues nice, enjoying it a lot.
 
Thanks for checking in Bosco, glad you and Connie are OK although roasting.
 
Cindy I do have vague memories of drinking Boone's Farm Apple Wine at a party or two when I was young. Also some punch people made in a trash can called "Purple Jesus" which seemed to consist of whatever someone brought and poured into the plastic trash can. Vodka, wine, rum, etc.
 
Just noticed Mapes has not posted recently, hope he and Sweetie are OK and just spending a lot of time with their grands and their re-enactments.

Good Morning Spinach Balls, it's Hump Day.
 
Light rain here with heavier rain on the way, not good for my big roofing project, but I'm going to try to get some more of it done. If not I have lots of inside jobs I can tackle. 
 
I'll try to catch up here tomorrow.

Wag more....bark less.

MB, many years ago, I took the opportunity to take a tour of Shaker village in Canterbury (http://www.shakers.org/). What an eye opener. They actually embrace technology and even have this website going. I could live the shaker lifestyle (well not that celibacy thing). 

Jamie, this trip to the North Maine woods was a little different, in that the trip organizer, Dan, bailed this time, but Mac wanted to go no matter what. So did I. We stayed the whole 4 days. It rained the third day, we just wore our goretex, no problems. We are pretty certain, had Dan been there, he would have bailed when the first drops started. Looks like I have a new partner in crime, as it were! Only caught a dozen fish, catch and release, but what fun and so nice up there!

Today, my brother and I are headed back to Overset mountain, just to see how we are doing hiking wise. This was the first hike of the season, so we want a comparison. So weak and short winded early in the season. We are going to try to find a way to keep it going thru the winter. I ski Monday thru Friday, so I'll do something on the weekends to keep my cardio up. Snowshoe, cross country, etc...
 
PJ, it is supposed to be hot up here today, 80 degrees. It's been in the 60's and 70's of late. Comfy. I'm clearing out some junk today, myself. I spied some boxes from old TV's and DVR's and routers. The youngest of which is over 5 years old. You know, the boxes you keep just in case you need to return something.... All broken down and ready to recycle. Seems every week, I find something I have not touched in 5 or 10 years, cluttering up the place. And I have added to those piles. After painting the living room, I simply did not want to put some stuff out, so down in the basement on a shelf. I suppose, a few years from now, I'll finally toss that stuff....
 
Bernie, how are the beach crowds now that school is back in session?

Have a great day all!

Lovin life,
Bob
