Don't think Glen drinks pop. He's a tea or beer man.

Morning all.

I am off to the final meeting about the car show next week. Last year the Porsche club invited the Mercedes club to be partners in our charity car show. The PCA club is laid back and a bunch of guys that do very little pre planning or meetings. The Mercedes club is organized like a German government bureau. We have had 6 or 8 meetings, committees and even an agenda. I have to admit it is a better system, just more work up front.

Slapout, Oklahoma is a intersection with a gas station and 4 way stop.

It started as a road side grocery store made from a converted chicken coup when they put the highway thru in 1905. It is in the sparsely populated area in the panhandle of Oklahom, and was originally called Nye, OK. A tornado knocked the Nye sign down and wasn't replaced. People including the owner's daughter called it slapout because the store was always "slapout" of what they wanted. Slapout stuck as the official name.

Think I may give all the extra stuff from my Mom an Bro I have to the Salvation Army instead of trying to sell anything. Don't know if it would be worth the effort to try to sell it.

Yea, old clothes and personal items have little real value unless they were owned by someone famous. Your mom was a great lady, but not real famous.

My wife went with me to the meeting about next week's car show. I was expecting it to take about an hour and then we would go to eat in Bricktown entertainment district. The meeting was done in 30 minutes so it was just 10:30 and she did not want to walk around or ride the boat on the canal. So off to the house we went. On the way she siad we could drive up to Guthrie and eat at there. We came up on a massive traffic jam that we could see was over two miles long so I got off the interstate and we tried to go to a local BBQ place that just opened a new store. The lights were off and it was after opening time. I guess the employees did not come in. She did not want a hot dog at Sam's so we tried a burger joint and finally managed to hunt and gather lunch.

Dang we lead exciting lives.

Didn't know a BBQ place had a new place anywhere. Then again I don't get out much.

The clothes stuff my sisters tossed (didn't even give them Salvation Army or anything and most of her stuff was only a couple of years old).

I gots books and knick knacks type stuff. Queen size solid walnut bedroom suit, was new in the early 60's not sure what it's worth. Got one carved wooden plate worth $75.

A couple of sewing machine cabinets with a singer sewing machine probably only worth $25 each. Have one cabinet and singer machine I want to keep because I do know how to use it. But know could get a newer one that does a whole lot more with all the embroidery type stuff which I would actually more apt to use.

Fun morning for me. I got the yard mowed and trimmed and weeds killed with Roundup.

I keep the cracks in the cul de sac turn in front of the house roundupped. Makes the neighborhood look a little nicer not to have grass and weeds growing in the cracks in the asphalt. Neighborhood association petitioned to have the street re-asphalted this summer, but haven't heard if anything resulted from it.

Shhh, don't tell anyone, especially that vacation man Jim, that Monday starts in 2 hours!

It is kinda difficult for me to boycott the NFL since don't watch, attend, or even keep uo with the games in the first place.
So are boycotters just not watching, or turning off their cable subscriptions?

Yea, I have been boycotting all major league "sports" or games. Can't care any less about watching other people play a game.

Good Monday morning all. We had a project to fly this weekend. Saturday was perfect weather and we had some weird laptop issue and it did not want to talk to the camera. So 1.2 hours of wasted airplane rental time. Sunday was mostly overcast. It was do it or lose it time. The pilot flew it once and it was cloud shadows on the ground in spots. Then the clouds parted and he flew it a second time and the clouds were just outside the project. Like in Gumball rally "what is behind me does not matter" and what is outside the project does not matter. Whew, we got it and it looks great. My computer processed the data last night and the new CPU cooler kept everything nice on cool baby cool, just like me.

morning all. Well we got dad moved only a few oops. Found a broken statue and the shower rod ends got knocked off.

The weekend capper was last night went out to walk the dog and 5 houses down I found the little old neighbor lady sitting on her front step holding a rag to her head. She had fallen and banged her head on the concrete pretty good. Lucky that my wife works with her son so we called him. Still waiting on the outcome.

That's great having Pops closer. Hope he settles in well.

At least the neighbor lady was able to get up!

I need MORE POWER!

Working with 4 GB data sets needs a SSD hard drive. I guess that will be the next upgrade.

While waiting for the files to copy from one computer to the other I went outside to hunt a mole. The little bastage is making a tunnel along the sidewalk of of the west garden and I guess he burrowed under the wide driveway and now is going along the curb. We bough some of the poison gummy worms that are supposed to kill em off. At least I will not have to bury the critter.

If he went to the back yard the 4 legged mole hunters would really love to dig him up and dispose of the body with joy. They would for sure need a bath afterwards. A dachshund would love the fun of mole hunting.
