Hello campfire folks. Do you remember me? I come here from time to time, just to let you know that I am still alive... at least for today. :)

Well, I am still alive. I'm not getting any younger, and I take a lot more pills than I used to. I don't do any camping lately, but, Planovet is still my dog's veterinarian. He keeps me updated on SCT activities.

I am still photographing cars for food. I am going to South Dakota next week to shoot 25 Pontiacs. You don't hear that everyday, do you? :lol:

I need to check in with you folks more often, and I want to. I just get bogged down in the day-to-day process of making money to pay my bills. I need to win the Lottery... but to do that, I'd have to buy lottery tickets, which I would do, except I know that winning the lottery is like getting struck by lightning -- well, except winning the lottery is way better than getting struck by lightning.

Keep me in your thoughts. Believe it or not, I think about you guys and gals from time-to-time. I need to get a photography job in Maine sometime soon, so I can say I have met a genuine alien sheepman. I'll have to take pictures... but, will he show up in the pictures. Will I remember meeting him? :thinking:

I have spent most of this week doing trail work. I have, here and there puttered on other things.. working on bikes... getting some lawn furniture out.. work on the barn. Trail work has also been a variety of projects. Spring clean up.. new construction.. and little mods /alterations / additions.

Dave left Tuesday for a couple of weeks.. [work] Angela came out for a walk Wednesday.. then out for our first beginner ride Last night. We are heading to their place shortly for a road ride then dinner.

I am really enjoying retirement.. but still pissed about how it came about etc. I will share more of that in a separate post.

Hey CD.. glad to hear you are still kicking. Winning the lottery sounds nice.. I would be happy with a relatively small one. They say the odds of winning most any lottery.. is WORSE than getting hit by lightning... I have never purchased one and probably will never... so I guess my odds of winning are really bad. :roll: 8)

If I want to be seen.. I can be photographed... I do sometime alter my form though.... and I am generally rememberable... :R

Good Morning. Rain all night ans still raining here now.

Sucky week at work with lots of rain and one very hot humid day this week. We did not get caught up, but got more done than we expected. Might go in to work today, but that is doubtful. Have not seen much of the wife this week. Her brother who cares for their mother had hernia surgery on Tuesday and my wife has been mostly staying at their house to care for my MIL while he is recuperating. And of course my lawn needs mowed! :roll:

Good morning Campers.. another day in Paradise!! We have had fairly decent weather.. although this coming week sounds pretty wet. I did a little work on the barn this morning.. before the metal roof got hotter than I wanted to be on. I then switched over to mowing.

Rainy here today, but should be sunny the rest of the week. Looks like it will be long days the rest of the week.

Went to Gander Outdoor (used to be Gander Mountain) today and now I want two new rifles!!! :roll: :roll: But, also found out about a club that I had not known about and probably will join now to go shooting at. :)

I am off a day somehow.. I keep thinking it's Thursday.. :thinking: :roll:

It did cloud up and we had a little rain last night.. but otherwise it's not been bad this week. I have continued doing trail work.. as well as working on the lawn. Over on that side of the house we have had some trees that are not doing all that well..{ mostly storm damage} I cut them down .. took the stumps out.. Yesterday I went over the area with the tractor rake. I also clipped the sticking out roots. I also went out on 2 of our new trails.. and clipped [and cut with the sawzall] roots over there.

I was going to work off the barn roof this morning... but the sun came out.. strong and hot early... so I swapped over to more trail work. I have a bit of mechanized stuff I could do [up over there] I was working on that and broke the pivot bolt on my rake.... soooo I went to pick up a replacement and pick up some fuel.. and other things while out.

We have a cemetery trustees meeting tonight.. oh and we did have dinner out last night. I had an uncle up from Florida... so another aunt an uncle.. and my mom all went out to dinner.

Well we have lost one of our beginner riders already... :( Judy.. she road rides [with us] and we used to trail ride together a LONG time ago.. and she is timid and really doesn't like it any more... actually she used to be timid [but rode fairly well].. weirdly she was our best "beginner" .

I have continued to work on the barn some.. still doing trail work.. some mowing.. and worked on the lawn at the side of the house. Off the edge I had some saplings to bush hog. I used the smaller bush hog on the Gravely for that.

We had our second beginners ride last night.. and no beginners showed up.. :roll: We had two that we knew were going to be away. Another told us she wasn't really interested in mountain biking anymore... the others?? We did have 5 of our regulars.. and had an AWESOME ride. For a good part of it we "let" John and Angela take turns leading. They really still don't know there way around, although Angela is better than John. "Forcing" them to lead, allows them to learn their way around better. It definitely made for an interesting ride.. we ended up doing some pretty nasty stuff.. it was an interesting tough.. fun ride.. that everyone loved.
