Cool! KB

Yup. learning.
I just brought the pontoon in all by myself. Well, mother nature helped, with a perfectly angled breeze. And the neighbor came out to help anyway. They are so sweet. I think they waited until I got in to leave to go to a nearby town. Wow. And... when I came in earlier... he offered to clean my crappie for me (because I would have had to climb those *&^&^%& stairs to get to the fish surgery, and he was going up to clean his catch anyway).
Camper is off exploring and taking pics. He made sure I got onto the lake ok before he left. I assured him I could bring the boat back. He had the drone up this morning and has pics of me out fishing.

Hydrating now and getting feet up. Some pics soon...

OLDGUY  That is one angry volcano.  At least in the same area and not a new site.

TIG   Well at least you are catching something  LOL  The stillness and the watching of nature does it for me.  Good job on the pontoon.   Camper takes the best pics.  Will wait patiently  Super nice neighbors  :-*

LISA   Wayfair's first and only store in the USA.  It is HUUUGE.  Took us an hour and 30 to go through it.  Think upscale IKEA  It has it's own home design dept.  More on the trendy modern side.  Am not sure I would go back to shop there as I'm not at that stage in my life  LOL  But was fun and at a mall I've not been to before so may go back to explore further.

PHYL  We saw some good sales but a thick fluffy bath towel was $15.00   Small scented jar candle  $15.  I could see a wedding registry being done there.   Neanderthal/human study fascinating.

BAZI   Thanks for the backround info on your work history.  I like puzzles too  LOL    " Hit every traffic light"  ::)

KB   Don't you just love it when you can fix something yourself  ;D ;D

Nice pics, KB and Tig. Ollie looks very pleased! LOL. Nice pics of the trillium, rainbow, fog on the water, and the nice card Camper gave you, Tig.






Everyone have a good evening. Peace. SED.

The latest update from 1 hour ago...
Large Eruption Begins   -   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLoQPQ24Fmc

I have purchase some items from Wayfair on line over the past 10 years.  The first items were faux wood blinds - love them.  I usually only buy during sales, which have been as much as 50% off.  Bedding on sale was cheaper and better quality than anything I could find locally.  Homegoods was close, but not a good selection for King size.

Last Saturday, we only had enough players for 4 hand, so we decided to eat at a restaurant first ( https://www.monicasonthestrip.com/ )(menu - https://www.chomp.delivery/order/restaurant/monicas-menu/99953 ), so had a late start and only played 1 game - won it, but was a 'go out wins' as we both were close to 10k points.

Clynn - did your Mom have any storm damage on Sunday from the high winds and tornados the hit Indiana and Kentucky?

We are have some beautiful days this week with highs in the mid 70s...

Baz - my Ex retired from that field about 5 years ago - she worked maintaining health insurance software.  The sons of our friends, that are part of the card game nights, one works the communications/hardware area and the other writes software for farm equipment - current product/business is a secret.

Hi Beakers!

After 8am I was about halfway through writing my morning Beak post when Mike came to me and said he had been having severe pain in
his left shoulder and down his left arm.  We immediately went to ER. They did an EKG, blood tests, x-rays and everything checked out okay.
But they want him to make an appointment with his Phoenix doctor. They let him return home after 2pm and he's resting right now.
I'm tired, worried, but I know he'll be okay.... Sorry to have just dropped this in the room  :-[ .. I hope everyone has had a good day.
I'll be back later tonight to catch up and say good night.  :)

No worries.... Take care  :-*

TIG   Great photos.  Eye spy a trillium - good job. Love the rainbow and your "steamy" lake view.  Sweet card from your sweetheart.  ;)

OLDGUY  Wasn't able to access the restaurant link  :(  Gosh Maru 17, the General 18 and Phyl's Maggie 18.  WE know a lot of older cats.   I remember when Bellamy was just being introduce to guitar!

LANI   Glad you let us know.  You are not alone and we can now start some prayers for the best outcome after further testing.

Porch floor washed off and still wet!  Really needs to be painted or tiled!  Tomorrow I to the ortho office to discuss another shot in my back. Friday visit from Ace Hardware peeps to get

Tsk hitting sales---that's great. Sounds good and love the huge stores too.   

Tig love the snaps; I've insured plenty of pontoon boats but never been on one. Glad you're catching something---
--cool  you managed the pontoon all yourself--can just picture you   ;)  Going solo on the boat   ;) Camper
Lovely sentiment from your man and so nice that you can keep it out al the time if you want.

My all time favorite aircraft is the 707.

The 1st time I ever boarded a 707 my checked next to me backpack contained:
• Bear strength pepper spray extra large.
• Long and short guns with ammunition.
• Coleman white gas canisters & all applicable appliances.
• Blades.
