Sorry to hear about your inflamed tonsils PE, thats a bummer:-(

Meanwhile here in KC I am out cutting up some firewood this evening about 7pm when the lightning starts up and a few raindrops begin to fall. I figured I better call it a night so I go home, I am only a block a way at best, put the saw and tools up and start to unload the truck when, Oh Crap, the sirens go off. I whip my trusty ol pick-up truck around to the front of the house and our youngest daughter is out front and says “Don’t worry it’s out by the Speedway”.

Well bascially it was much ado about nothing, thank goodness. As I am typing this all the Tornado Warnings have passed with out any excitement. Yippeee

Now if the T-storms that are suppose to pass through later tonight will fade out a bit it will be a good night.

Regards

I may get a pickup this time.

Get a Toyota or a Ford. Look at what that Chevy wneighbor's boyfriend has happened. Yikes.

By the way, it looks like spiderboy is doing all the work on that trailer.

My goodness. You still have your tonsils? Let me know if you figure out what they’re good for, besides swelling up and getting ice cream.

Good evening, PE...how’s the teardrop coming along?

I've been battling tonsillitis this week, but starting to move forward.

My old new car was declared a total loss due to the fire.

I bought another just like it, so Project Teardrop is moving again. Tonight the young delivery stiff (aka Spiderboy) took Compass Rose for her first outing, to buy building materials for the floor.

Tucked in again, ready for sawdust once more.

More Scout stuff this weekend?

None this weekend, but here's a catapult with ammo from last weekend.

Yes'm, I sure do. I never had the good luck to have any of the fun (and class missing) childhood maladies. I dread the thought of Bittygirl contracting any of them, because I'll probably follow shortly.

Spiderboy had most of them before I met he and Msdrby.

Yikes. I recall when one of us kids would get sick, mom would just throw us all together to get it all over with at once. Really, even the measles.

For the first time since I turned 18, I didn’t even go to the polls. No matter who wins, we lose. I just can’t believe that Sauron and Saruman were both in the Shire. I’ll probably vote for McCain in the fall, but it will be reluctantly.

Spiderboy, aka Working Stiff, has been busy building our teardrop. After the supply run last week, he built the floor.

The floor is flipped in order to insulate and waterproof.

Let's here it for the Black Goo :-)

No matter how caefull you are....

The trailer is looking good and so is "The Stiff"!!!

Here is a Close up of the front yard after Mrs alfa6 has finnished the landscaping.

Pic of part of the back yard. Since this picture was taken I have, gotten rid of the excess gravel, graded out the pile of dirt, tilled the back yard and planted grass seed. The picket fence is also gone and a temporary fence of chicken wire and caution tape is up.

I am suppose to be off next weekend and all next week so I hope to have the caps on the wall, the fence up and a mess of little things tidied up by Friday the 24th.

Y'all take care out there.

Regards
