Mornin gents.

OK, Mrs.BF yelled at me. It's not Mel Tillis and Amy Grant's daughter, but Vince Gil and Amy Grant's daughter that asked my niece and nephew's son to the dance.
I think Mrs. BF just likes to yell at me. Guess that's better than her beating on me.

Morning all,

It's Tuesday, it's office move day. Joyous!

I hope everyone has a better day than the one I suspect I'm going to have!

Good luck Scrummy. Likely to be a PITA.

Mornin gents.

It's Tuesday, which is like a repeat of Monday. I don't want to be here at work, and I'm doing the same old s#it (SOS).

We supposedly have snow on the way for the weekend, but I'm skeptical. It's going to 63 today.

Morning gents,

Well, office move in full swing. IT works (Kudos to our guys for that) but the property management hasn’t got the walls in the open plan office sorted yet so will be a noisy day here.

Cold and clear but quite pleasant day here, currently 37F and going to 43.

In that case Skip I recommend getting home quick sharp, battening down the hatches, having plenty of logs in, putting on a pot of Chilli on the stove and enjoying watching something on TV or reading a good book in the company of your good lady and the hound pack - with the possible accompaniment of some whisky

That's probably his game plan for sure... thought I think he'll opt for a clear alcohol like Vodka...

I'm watching the weather wondering if I'm going to get slammed or bypassed.  Two fronts are merging out the Dakota's way heading east.  If they do merge then I should get hammered pretty good this weekend.  If they deflect off each other then it's probable that one will pass to south and other to the north bracketing me with nastiness....

Being on such excellent terms with Murphy....I'm making sure I've got gas for the snowblower.... Confused

Ah, Murphy's law, often leads into Sod's Law.

Murphy states that if it can go wrong, it will go wrong.
Sod builds on Murphy and states that given something will go wrong, it will be at the least opportune moment, and further, in the worst way possible

;)

Mornin gents.

Partly cloudy and 32 going to 36 with 20+ mph winds.

We're supposed to get a wet snow Friday and Saturday. Could make it an interesting weekend,..... or not.

I think Scrummy has a good idea, but I just have a tuff time sitting still long enough to read a book in the daylight.

Sod. So that's the name of Murphy's friend that's been mucking with me.
Not only does Murphy break stuff, but Sod's been making it impossible to fix within the time frame allowed and totally screwing up the next event on the schedule.

That is the advantage of short days, plenty of long evenings for reading

The most inconvenient way and least opportune time right there sir!

Good morning folks,

 

It’s Thursday so nearly Friday, no builders today so office quieter. Did the nasty weather hit anybody? Overcast and cool hear. It’ s about the time of year when the foxes come into heat so I was woken by a vixen on the lawn at 5am this morning…

Mornin’ all, arrived home at 2 am this morning after a 2 hour drive that normally takes an hour &15 minutes.

The dogs wouldn’t let me sleep!

Have to get ready to head to Niagara Falls on Sunday for my largest customers show. I’ll have 60’ there and three factory and three of our guys helping me.

Mornin gents.

I think the only thing I like about this compooter (work) is the size of the screen.

Started at 23 this AM. May get to low 30s.

Skip's a salesman, so he loves to talk, and he's good at it too. I enjoyed talking to him when I met him. Skip probably looks at it like I look at the KCR machine gun shoot. Twice a year I get to visit with a bunch of guys I've known for years. Each time I meet more people that I enjoy talking to and share the same interest with. Some of them I see more often than others, and I'm sure a bunch of them see each other at other shows and shoots. It's kinda like a family reunion, except you get to pick your family.

So Scrummy, does this mean some fox hunting? The coyotes have pushed most of the foxes out of my area:(
