I managed to schedule an appointment for an oil change today. Car uses synthetic so that is fairly spendy. I used to do them myself, but speedy lube places do it so quick and efficiently and inexpensive enough, and I don't have to try to find a place to dispose of the oil... Anyways, some years ago, the dealer asked why I don't have them do my oil changes. I pointed out that they charge $100 and some thing, while down the road, I can drive in any time and get it done for $41.00. They dropped the price to match. Now I get a 41 point inspection, and a car wash with the oil change!

I also need to change the differential fluid. They charge $167.00 to do this. I bought the fluid from them, $19.95 and drain it and pump in the new stuff myself. It's an hour job and I save almost $150.00. It wasn't an hour job today... Some years ago, I had to change some spark plugs and I needed all kinds of extensions to reach every spark plug, so I stupidly bought the cheaper extensions, intending to only use them for spark plugs. I forgot, and used one of them on the differential plug. The extension broke off in the plug. I spent the next hour or so on my back under the car jacked up as high as I could get it, drilling the broken extension out. Finally, got it done and all cleaned up. 

I'm gonna head out to the garage in a bit and pull out every extension that does not say snap on, husky, SK, or craftsmen on it and replace it extensions that do have that recognizable brand name on it. Phooey. Not the first time this has happened, I never enjoy fixing something like this, but I seem to have gotten a good deal of practice in the past, and more recently.

While driving to the garage, I saw a backpacker hitch hiking. It's common in this are, as the Appalachian trail goes nearby and they need to resupply groceries. Turns out, he thought he had headed to Gorham NH, but he ended up in Bethel. I told I was headed to Gorham. Made his day and we chatted all things hiking on the ride!

Tried my hand at zucchini lasagna. Just as much work as a regular lasagna, more because you have to slice the zucchini. Tastes good, but it is a liquid lasagna, from the zucchini. I need to cook it more and steam out some liquid. Cooking 101 commencing!

Tomorrow means fishing!!! 

Have a great evening!

Lovin life,
Bob

Good evening.  Another busy day.  Up and about mid-morning to Kohl's to check out bed skirts and then off the BByB where I found the perfect color, I think.   Had some breakfast and then electrician called and came over around noon.  He measured up for new larger mirror and light fixture.  Had to put in a box which resulted in sheet rock removal and replacement  Some minor clean-up afterwards.  Installed a couple of light switches in kitchen and DR for dimmers/and or light combos.  Went to install new kitchen light fixture over sink...bad potty mouth comments once again that no box was installed there either.  Rat bastardos and he had no extras in his truck, so have another light fixture temporarily hanging over the sink.  Seriously, I think I am getting use to all this chaos and not even getting upset any longer.  Called Jerry, the painter, to give him progress report and he will get back to me to tape and mud sheet rock in bathroom. Then he will finish the ceiling repair, wood trim stained and sealed around vanity, cleaning exhaust fan from my hairspray, painting ceiling and walls, hanging new mirror and help with new wall art.  Enuf....already and thanks for listening.
 
Bernardo, have a fantastic time with family and glad you are feeling better.  Don't forget the camera this time.
 
SoSo, your new lighting is cool and love the little bit of wall decor you displayed.  Where did you purchase that wall clock?  I liked it.  Did you guys switch over to LED?  Zoey enjoyed her freedom.  So sweet.
 
Hi Crunchie.  How are you healing?  Good prognosis?
 
Twirls, wonder why those strange phenomenon are occurring.  Maybe in advance of  Jay's anniversary passing.  I apologize that I don't quite remember, but thought it was in August.  Huge gentle hugs sent your way.  I second that you should spearhead the next PoMo get together chica.  
 
Badger, stormy here most of the day but not in south metro.  Got a nice rain shower which was needed.
Cindy, where has the summer gone?  You amaze me with your power through get it done attitude.  That invisible fence is a great thing for sure.  
 
Bosco, I miss your posts.  Thanks for checking in.
 
Edit: Cindy, thanks for chiming in on bed skirt.  Hoping this works out.  Thinking I want the more laid back and elegant look at different time kinda like the look in updated bathroom.  You and Holly are great design advocates. 
 
Bob, have a fun fishing day.  Had to chuckle about the trail guy.  I'm sure he appreciated your advice.  Yeah, cooking/baking is a learning process.
 
I know I am missing lots of folks so Hola to all.  Happiness and good health to all.  MB

Good Morning Clubbers, it's Twosday.
 
PJ, one of the reasons I look forward to vacations in Mexico is that I can finally get some naps.
 
Twirls, glad the visit with your friends went well.
 
Bosco, great to "see" you, wish you would stop by more often.
 
Bernie, how are you feeling?
 
MB, we had a nice little tormenta come thru mid day yesterday, garden really needed the water. We should have some ripe tomatoes soon, I bought some from a produce truck a couple of days ago and have been gorging on tomato sandwiches.
 
Work, work, work.

Wag more....bark less.

Good Morning
Went for BOGO burgers last night and ran into some people from church, so shared a table and had some fun conversation. They stopped by the house afterward to meet the canine crew. After the barking settled down Joey was appropriately adorable, while Sophie chewed on Joey's tail.
 
Pretty sweaty day diggin' in the dirt yesterday, had to pause and put my bandanna around my forehead to stop the sweat from running in my eyes. Made some decent progress. Rain and thunderstorms we were supposed to get broke up, so prolly will have to do some watering today.
 
Days are getting shorter and shorter. I'm used to the sky starting to lighten when I let the dogs out in the morning; this morning it was still pitch black. Sigh. Still so much to do!
 
Glad you found your bed skirt, MB.
PJ, waiting for news on SJ!
Bernie, enjoy those grandchildren!
 
Have a wonderful day!
Cindy

Summer is just taking hold here in Texas. Overnight low's about 80 and highs in the high 90's and low 100's. No rain to speak of. Funny how different it is regionally.
 
Got to run.
 
Have a "gooder" all!

Howdy and good morning all.
 
  Few clouds hanging around but today should be mostly sunny with a chance of afternoon rain showers. We had t-storms last night while Freddie and I were watching TV between 9-10. I knew the time as Chicago PD was on. Current temp is 73F at 6:51 with a beach high of 86 degrees.
 
  Yesterday the dentist visit was only a cleaning. I always get a little anxious that a cavity or worse will be discovered. After the good news I went to Fibber's at 2 o'clock and celebrated with chicken fingers.
 
  Talked to Meredith last night. She is planning for the beach tomorrow 'cuse Jack has been asking about what day are they all going to Grandpa's beach. Ha ! Highs starting tomorrow 88-92 degrees for the next 3 days. Whew.
 
  Only a few small things on my list today : change hummer food, pay some bills, blow up and put sheets on the air mattress. 
 
  Thank you, Holly. It should be a good family visit but maybe a little hectic. Those boys at age 3 and 5 are full of energy. I'll have to slip them some kitty downers when Meredith isn't looking. Ha,ha,ha. Only kidding.
 
  Bosco !!  About time you made an appearance. Please do no speak the "H" word. How's Connie been ? And is your little mutt dog behaving ?  I haven't thought very much about next year's trip but I'm leaning towards a totally different place; destination unknown at this point.
 
  You are correct, Crunch, airfares are not cheap. It used to be that booking your flight a year out saved some good bucks. No longer true. I believe it was Badger that said it's better to wait until closer to your departure date. Russian roulette with flights !
 
  SoSo, thank your for your house pictures. It looks so nicely decorated and CLEAN......wait a minute, was that a speck of dust I spotted ?  Probably on the camera lens. Hee,hee.
 
  Bob, I can't believe you would own any 'cheap' tools. That's just not like you !
 
  Thanks MB, Badger, Cindy. IT should be a fun time with the Colorado gang.
 
MB, I plan to take a ton of pictures. Badger, there is some residual pain coming from the nerve endings; skin is mostly clear. Cindy, you have mentioned BOGO burgers in the past. New place and regional chain ?
 
Coffee long gone. Time to knock out my list.
See y'all,
Bernie

Weekend at Bernie's

Have to correct myself. It was so dark when I let the beasts out this morning, I thought the deck looked dry. Turns out there is a nice 1/2 inch in the rain gauge.
 
Bernie, not a chain. It is the Hitching Post, in our 'hood. The BOGO burgers (a half lb of yummy) is the Monday night special. Tuesday is Mexican night, when Alejandro, one of the cooks, gets to shine with has family recipes. Wednesday they have AYCE wings, with lots of sauce options, including ghost pepper sometimes, if you have a death wish... Thursday he offers BOGO prime rib. Weekends, Jason the owner will trot out lobster or crab legs or some such. It is our "Cheers", and the place has an interesting history. It has been a tavern/restaurant/dance hall since the late 1800s. East coasters may scoff, but that is an OLD building for Wisconsin. Lots of old photos blown up and displayed, along with antique manual farm equipment. And one big "staged" photo. After Jason got his big new sign put up on the building, he rounded up everyone in the area that had a horse ride over and tie the horses up on the hitching rail. Then had a professional photographer take a black and white photo and gave it that sepia look. Very nice, and has fooled some folks.
 
Hi Ho, Hi Ho!

Long, rough weekend at the McColloch home.  Air conditioner decided not to work Thursday night.  First thing Friday morning I called my go to repair guy and he was here in 30 minutes.  Helps that he lives less than 10 minutes away.  Last few years we have just been adding a shot of freon and that did the trick for the summer.  This was instead of buying a new coil for a 25 year old unit.  Dollar wise it didn't make sense to buy a new coil. Well he shot some more freon in.  With everyone going in and out the cats got out.  They are indoor cats so know telling if they would come back or not.   About 4:00 apparently the leak had enlarged and the freon was gone.  Repair man came back about 5 with the bad news.  New coil needed.  Decided to go with a new 4 ton unit which naturally he could not get until yesterday.  Him and his sidekick showed up Monday morning and were finished by 2:30.  Thankfully we have an attic fan plus my good son Kevin brought over 5 fans. Turns out the cats were afraid of the fans and just went and hid somewhere in the house. Craig slept in the basement and I slept on the couch in the first floor family room.  Another big plus were the outside temperature never got above 90.  We survived, it just puts you in a bad mood.
 
To add to my bad mood, the a/c in my truck went out. Took it in Thursday and the mechanic was kind of dumbfounded.  Got it cooling cold but was not happy with the readings he was getting.  Decided to drive it over the weekend to see if it was cooling ok.  Naturally come Sunday the air wasn't as cool as it should be.  Going back in the shop Thursday, the first opening he had.  Hopefully not the condenser but probably is. Not looking forward to another $1000+ bill.  Guess that is why the financial guys always say have an emergency fund.  Going to have to replenish it!  What we do to stay comfortable.
 
 
Grandbaby Kensley at 2 weeks.  She sure has a lot of hair coming in!

Morning everyone
 
Soso, I noticed a picture on your wall of a barn with mountains in the back ground.  Curious about it as Jay had a old print that is extremely similar.  Its still on the wall in his room.  He loved it and hung it where he could see it from his bed.
 
Bernie, good luck with the young'uns.
Apparently we had dental appointments on the same day.  Unfortunately, when I fell recently, I chipped a tiny sliver off the back side of one of my front teeth.  It doesn't show but could get a cavity so it must be fixed.  And it's time for a cleaning. 
 
Not much going on.
I don't know what is expected to 'spearhead" another POMO trip except to tell you all when I'm going.  December and February for sure.  Probably sometime in April.  Just depends on weather I want/need to escape here.   I'd love for anyone and everyone to join me that wants to.  Unfortunately, I am limited to 14 to 17 days at most unless I stay somewhere with a refrigerator, due to my Humira needing refrigeration or it goes bad.  I have to take it every 2 weeks or close.  I have to time it right so I can be gone 2 weeks without taking it along.  I'm planning for Dec 3 - 17, at this time.  It might vary by a day or 2. Hacienda Morelos does get busy in winter so...  Now I'm just waiting for decent flight fares.

Good morning BCers!
Partly cloudy with a high temp in 90s this afternoon.  
Did not sleep well last night.  Woke up late.    
SJ went to the doctor about his hand.  Then on to the hospital for X-rays and to see a hand specialist.
Does not have carpal tunnel.  Pinched nerve somewhere.  The specialist put SJ on Methylprednisolone dose pack.  
Might help. Might not. Appointment with a Neuro Surgeon is the next step.

Yikes Frank. Super rough. What did the new unit cost if I may be so rude as to ask? The baby looks adorable.
 
Work. Grrr. Back to it!

Crunch--Thanks for the comment on Kensley.  The whole family think she is adorable also :-)
 
Did one of those "age projection" things I found on the internet and Kensley should look like this when she is 21!
 

 
4 Ton A/C installed was $2,850.  Thing is huge.  Coil is about twice the size of the one that was in there. Probably could have gotten away with a 3.5 ton, which was there originally, but repair guy said if it were his he would go with a 4 ton since we have a finished basement. He has never steered me wrong before, and I have used him a lot on my home and 3 rental properties, so I took his recommendation.  Probably should have stuck with a 3.5 ton.  Since there is just the 2 of use living here now we hardly ever use the basement except for when the air conditioner goes out or there are tornados in the area
 
Badger---Do you think I did alright on the a/c?  Don't know if you know much about a/c pricing since you practically live in the artic

Holly, that's the Moulton Barn on Mormon Row in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.  I've never seen a black, white and red print of it like Soso has ~ I like it!  The Moulton's are verrrry distant cousins ~ lots of family in Wyoming!!!

Good afternoon.  84 and partly cloudy.  Headed out for a couple of errands mid-morning then back home waiting on flooring company appointment to replace glossy white silicone caulk across shower/tub area with a biscuit colored caulk. Looks so much better.  Then headed back up to Home Depot to return two tubes of other caulk colors that weren't needed.  Other than that a pretty quiet day.
 
Cindy, your grounds and flowers look stunningly beautiful.  You've got a knack for design, texture and color.  I only got less than 1/4" rain.  Been having to run the irrigation system lately.  Ugh with 10 zones.  Edit:  Joey look so happy and trouble maker puppy Zoey.
 
Frank, good to hear from you.  Kensley is a beauty. So many babes have light colored peach fuzz or no hair so I am always entranced by a full head of dark hair.  Sorry to hear about your A/C woes.  Always seems to hit at once....not sure why that is. I'm pretty sure you made the right decision.  We are always second guessing ourselves which translates to more stress.
 
Holly, I think you just put your fall/spring dates out there for PoMo at Hacienda Puerto Morelos Hotel and folks can work around those dates like we all did in April/May 2019.  Maybe start a special thread on trip reports so you can keep track of attendees and arrival/departure dates.  Just a suggestion similar to what Paul did earlier.  
 
Susy, quick grab on SoSo's wall art.  Cool connection and it was a pretty print.
 
Badger, I'm enjoying every day here after that long awful winter of '19.  Glad you didn't get the storms and hail that pummeled areas of the northern counties here.  I think you need a guy's weekend at the cabin with some fishing.  Everyone needs a break from long days working.
 
Speaking of which Kim.  Would be interested in knowing more about your research project if you are able to disclose.  Cool article about your boss you posted earlier.  God bless research and those that dedicate their lives to making other lives richer in so many ways.  Your pool pic of Tuco was precious.  They are the luckiest doggies to have you both.
 
Bernie, hopefully you are enjoying a fun reunion with Meredith and family.  Look forward to beach pics tomorrow with the kiddos.  They are probably exhausted from the travel and hyper about tomorrow.  It's all good.  Enjoy y have fun.
 
PJ, wondering too what is going on with PJ. Perhaps related to repetitive motion with occupation other than carpel tunnel?  Hope it is diagnosed and treated promptly.  Sending prayers your way sweet chica.
 
SoSo, would love to see the rest of your light fixtures.  Your home looks air, bright and uncluttered.  I am getting rid of all my clutter with the renos I am moving forward with.  Time for a major shift in my life.  Liberating.
 
Thinking I am missing some folks.....if so, hola.  Have a beautiful evening all.  MB

PJ---Thankfully it is not carpel tunnel.  I had a version of it in my elbow, can't recall what they actually called it, but it numbed my pinkie and the next finger over.  Had it operated on last Sept.  Pinkie finger still numb.  Doctor said it could take up to a year for the feeling to come back.  Another 5 weeks will be a year.  Hope your husband's condition is curable.

Good Morning Clubbers, it's Hump Day.
 
LOVE the doggie pix, Sophie looks so sweet, hard to believe she is La Diabla and Joey looks so happy and handsome.
 
Geez, Frank, when it rains, it pours for you. Not an HVAC expert, but I think you did real well on that AC unit.
 
Sure hope SJ is going to be okay!
 
Crunch, we have 4 seasons up here...summer, fall, winter and more winter.
 
Hi Susy!!
 
MB, it's raining here right now, messing up my schedule again, but I can always find something to do.
 
Twirls, I frequently check flight prices just for kicks and noticed that Delta had dropped prices yesterday for some fall flights to Cancun. You might want to check that out.
 
Later.

Wag more....bark less.

Good morning everyone.
 
  Just a quick 'hi' before the wild Indians wake up. Today is our beach day. Debby is coming up to join us around 9 or so. It will be a bright sunny day with a high of 89 degrees.
 
  Thanks for the info, Cindy. Hitching Post I know; BOGO burgers I didn't know. Now I do. hee,hee.
 
  Badger & MB, I already took some pictures yesterday when everyone arrived. They were all tired. I grilled some chicken and Mer fixed the corn. Nothing fancy.
 
  I hear someone stirring. See ya'll.
Bernie

Good Morning
Rough night for me, I guess Chris was cold and kept on creeping over to my side. His big old arm under my pillow was not comfy, especially when I was right at the edge of the bed and in danger of falling off. But I guess it's a good thing that after 46 years he still likes me. If only for warmth.
 
Thanks for feedback on the dogs and flowers. Do you see that little black mark under Sophie's eye? That is a small puncture wound from them wrestling. Sophie is always the one who initiates it; she leaps onto Joey, grabbing his ears or whatever she can get a hold of. When he gets tired of it, he can put nearly her entire head in his mouth. Bit down a little hard that time, but she still keeps after him. I believe that since she arrived first by 5 whole days that she thinks she is the boss.
 
Susy, that is so cool that you not only recognized the print, but know the place AND have a family connection. Small world, indeed.
 
PJ, hope the Docs can get SJ fixed up quickly. It is no fun to not have use of one's hand. If he does need surgery, look for the best surgeon you can find!
 
Frank, I think you made the right decision on the new air conditioner. And so does Badger, so we must be right!
 
A few errands today, then back to the weeds. Have a beautiful day! 
Cindy

Good morning BCers!
We had quite the lightning and boomer show last night.  T-storm rolled in about 9:30.
Lightning was so intense it kept one ring a dinging the cordless house phones.  Turning on the TV.
Wanted to unplug them but scared to touch the plugs.  Loss of electricity put a stop to that nonsense.  
I was so tired, took the shaking lil doggie and went to bed in the guest room downstairs.
Knew Cudi would not stay upstairs.  Slept like a log until SJ woke me up to help him get ready for work.       
Just did yard patrol with pets.  Looks like all the porch pots and veggie boxes received plenty of rain.
There is a huge tree limb laying in the back driveway.  Will need to drag that to the brush pile.  If I can.  Looks heavy. 
Didn't see any other wind damage.  Deck furniture wasn't even rearranged. 
SJ said he does think his hand is getting better.  Steroids must be working.  Sure hope so!
Otherwise, life is nice an quiet around here.  Started working on plans for Biloxi, MS trip.  Made the reservations
for SJ's 65th Bday dinner at Mary Mahoney's Old French House.  Recommended by one of his friends as the place
to go for special occasions.  Yummy seafood dishes.  Walkable from the Beau Rivage Resort.  
 
Bernie,  so happy your daughter and family arrived safely.  Enjoy the beach day!  Boys are going to love it!
 
Frank,  what a little cutie your new granddaughter is!  Love that head of dark hair.  
Kensley will be wearing ponytails and pigtails by 6 months old.  
Sorry about the crimp to the checkbook when replacing A/C unit.  Back in the spring, my HVAC repairman
told me 4 grand to replace our a/c compressor.  Said the day is coming.  Ours is almost 19 yrs old.
 
C&C,  beautiful flowers in your yard.  Doggies are adorable!  Sophie is lucky Joey is so good-natured.
 
MB, sounds like most of your home projects are nearing completion stage.  Wonderful!
 
SoSo,  your new home beautiful!  
 
Uphill,  you are so organized.  I use to be.  Lost control when we built this house.
Haven't gotten a grip on it since.  Had to buy a pair of wire nippers this summer.  We had some....but where??  LOL
 
Wishing everyone a great day!  Hugs

Today, we hiked the Eyebrow trail in Grafton Notch. We ran across a couple of work crews reworking some of the stepping rocks and water runoffs. It was a sticky overcast day, so no spectacular views that this trail is known for.
We did find the trail challenging, getting our blood flowing, and from there, as we finished a little early, we headed over to the cataracts Waterfalls about 20 minutes away. It was a little over a quarter of a mile, and was a nice way to round out the morning.
Enjoy the pictures!
As we were returning on the Appalachian trail, we came across this nice waterfall.

Willow doesn't understand what all these iron rungs are for.

This steep area had a handrail cable in place. I did not need it going up, but going down, I can see a definite benefit!

Cataracts waterfall, perhaps 40-50 feet of drop

Wet Dog!

Willow wants to see what my brother is looking at

And here is what they saw:



We came home, had some burgers and now I gotta think about loading my kayak up for tomorrow's trip to the Moose River in Jackman Maine. We'll be back after 4-5 days of camping and fishing. 

Be well everyone!

Lovin life,
Bob

Your pups look marvelous C&C
 
Frank your dear Kensley is adorable!  
Sounds like that night was uncomfortable, top of the line AC unit for you now, wow. What is your square footage?
 
MB we felt spoilt yesterday, spent time in the pool with GF.  She kindly reminded me we have known each other for 40 yrs.  Thinking back through the paper telephone book era, into the tech era rolling my eyes.  We laugh always at our short comings and smile that 'she did it'.  My friend is a breast cancer survivor, who had a full flap, we connect and reflect our past years while floating in the pool.  So awesome to see the worry of the past drift bye us.  ~Life is precious~  
 
PJ that is not what we wanted to hear about SJ  soso DANG'd IT.
 
Crunch we love BC in the summer ;)  Sending you two virtual HUGS as I can
 
Laugh at you looking at the temporary wall art... and you never commented on the MOOSE (shhhh am a secret lover of moosees)  So this print I have is of Wyoming Suzy/Twirls?... cause it sure looks like our back yard.
 
Wall clock was locally purchased (gears move it's an interesting piece) - turns the grey matter inquisitive in the Grand. The Cuckoo clock is another our little guy loves.
 
Maker a Gooder!  And BTW that shack has a Defibulator on it... shocking eh
 

Arrived and enjoying the Roo!

Soleil Soul---Not counting the basement we are about at 2,400.  Additional 800 in basement.  Too much for just the 2 of us.
