well I was reading today and someone was talking about earthquakes,brought back memryes of years gone by. when I was delivering piggyback trucks to Stockton CA. and lsangles I got there and when they opened up and let me in the gate they asked me how i got there. smarty me said drove here. they said no you do not understand what time did you come through the valley I said around Midnight.they said don't know how about that time was when we had a bad earthquake. the road is impassible. must have right when I cumming through there I thought this road has gotten afoul rough. and that happened to me two deferant times about a year apart when I was going to Stockton CA. and a took a four way to Las angle's CA. they asked me if I wanted to get a moatell I said no on airplane.for home they call the airport an they asked them to hold the plane a few min. the man took me through rush hour traffic at 60 and higher zigzagging through it. grabbed my soutchase and ran to plane and got on it. In those days we did not have all the foul we have now and no baggies check. we were still climbing up to the glide path, and the pilot came on the PA and said lady's and gentleman down there we just left they just had a bad earthquake.bridges and buildings down every where. when we landed in KC. AI. the man from the shop picked me up at airport he said I have bad news for you.and he told me about the earthquake, I said I know about it the pilot told us over the intercom. He said ok but the fellow that took you to the airport is under one of the bridges that fell along with lots others. took them several weeks to get the bridge broke up enough to get them out from under it. and when I was Married to Mary we visited her daughter at Sandfrisco CA.we left there and drove straight through home. we got in the house and turned on the TV. ant it was talking about the earthquake there. she got on the phone and after a couple busy signals got her daughter on the phone. she said there house it shook things off shelves but was still standing after it stopped shaking. but there were buildings down on all four sides f them. that just tells me that until god wants us with him there we cant rush it. Good night and sweet dreams,Past my bed time and I have gave my self my shot and took blood sugar test.so good night and sweat dreams.

good Mid day.the battery's in the tractor would not take a charge. so took them out, and that was a chore, I have them loaded in the van. but the battery store is no longer open on Saturday so out of business until Monday un less i go to Walmart or local parts store and they are both lot higher priced. i may  bite the bullet and pay the extra,as we are supposed to get more of that snow AMY is sending this way. and driveway is already a mess. i have a big tractor 130 horse power and a 12 ft wide blade circle and 12 ft long moldboard off of a # 12 cat road grader, now it will clean the road right down to the gravel.
we have plenty food and milk so may stay in and take a chance on missing it, and rest.

see you all later.

Thanks AMY.was good But could not to get the volume up where I need it. I have often thought I would like to make a video and put it on line but have no clue. the snow we got was very wet and heavy. our country roads were a mess and muddy under neath. aw have a short steep incline in it and even tho we have good full treed they would not pull through it up the hill. I baked up and got a run around the circle and could not get up  that way either. so i was backing up to try the first curve and got a little far to the side and got front wheels in a wash and could not go either way, the car is front wheel drive, so had to walk on to house and call for help. sure is good to be blessed with good grand children, that will help and wont take any $$$. well time I wish you all good Night and sweet dreams. I have took my shot and tested my blood sugar. iate a good size of good red grapes and took it too soon after and was a bit high reading. VA want me to take it several times a day so they know how to adjust my Insulin. I guess that will help me to live longer to tease you all?

AMY could not stand to keep the snow up there. don't know how much we have but we have well over 2" on the deck so far and still cumming down hard. so couch jockey again today, and leaving it to neighbor to get hay to the two cows we have left. I hope the roads get cleared enough to get them hauled to sale by next Tuesday. Have a great day the way you like it.

Good Morning everyone. AMY good morning you seam to be the first one in today again. that is OK with me but I still enjoy seeing you when i get in any time. I take too many Naps during the day and Have a hard time getting to sleep in bed at night. last night I took two melatonin pills and still took a while to get to sleep but when I did it was a good sleep I feel pretty good this Morning. temp. 13º currently and calling for a high of 18º here today. I would bet that you and you and your husband sleep with good warm P J"S on and still sleep close together to stay warm. Back in the days when my friend and i were hauling horses to ginville CA. I slept with all my clothes on + lot of covers on and still chilly in the truck sleeper. temp. was 50º below when we stopped to eat we left the truck running with the throttle puled out to run at a high rpm, so it would keep running and with a curton over the radiator restricting the air flow through it, glad you all are as tough as you are if we make up there to see you all will be in summer when temp. is warmer. I bet when you all dance it is a close dance. Have a good day'

 JaneS you are Normal. It is alright if you ask your self a question but just do not ask it and then answer it your self, you need a second opinion
get your self a room mate. male or female,dose not have to be bed partner. you surely Have more than one bed and or bed room. and one that would help with utility's and chores. one that has a adult attitude. you will be in  your second childhood soon enough if not already. Have a great day. others can join in also you can have a bed partner of opicet sex just cuddle with on cold nights, and not try to make more children.

Good afternoon.we had freezing rain Has stopped now. But before it did give us a short 1/2" we are at 33º But dropping and down to single digits by daylight the weather guesser says. I road my four wheeler down to Mailbox and the rain before the ice has softened the ground enough that the tread traction bars on the tires leave tracks through the Ice. and that 15 Min. to mail box and back was enough cold for me. I am going to go make me a cup of Hot chocklet.

 Shirley in case you do not already Know, I will give you and the rest f the girls a Tip on keeping your cut flowers pretty much longer,

Here is what you do

Get a quart of warm wetter to the point you would do baby formal (test on your arm same as formal) put 2 or 3 drops of bleach and two teaspoons of sugar in it. then cut 1/4" t0 1/2" off at a 45º off of the steams.put in the water and ever 4-5 days change the water and repeat same.that will make them Last up to 5 or 6 weeks. try it i think you will be pleased with it and the effort.

Nick Names? I was in high school and in a AG class. we went a field trip, Learning how to lay out tares's. was in the fall and in a corn field that had been picked. that year lot of dropped ears of corn. we got to throwing them at each other,the teacher called us down. It started up again and the prof pointed his finger at and said that would be all or out of his class we would be. So I got out of the crowd and started walking down by the pond where there were some duck's. the other children yelled that is right Hammond go down there by your web footed friends.someone yelled webfoot. and that stuck and spread through the whole school. for the longest time but finely the foot part got dropped and still today some people address me as webb. My mother was fit to be tied she said i thought I named all my children something that could not be nick named. that is ok I do not care what you call me as long do not use swear words and call me in time to eat.
is 21º and 15 MPH wend out of the north.the house is nice and warm,the furnace is coming on often. we Have a farm tap on natural gas. was level pay of $87.? now they raised it got the new bill today $150.and some change. seams every thing goes up except our income. sad we produced so many children to have to take on the burden. I am off of the block now and going to bed soon. as soon as I take my insulin shot. good thin it has so tine needle do not feel it. so no pain. good night. sweet dreams.

well I steeped out on the deck, right now it is 16º and clear, sky is full of shining stars, weather guesser is saying going to get cloudy after while. and snow tomorrow. Nancy fusses about me being a couch jockey so much,but I do not fuss about the naps she takes during the day. I just cant take the cold any more Like i used to. back when I would put on a coat with a hood on it get on the bulldozer. with the fan blowing to the rear put a piece of barn tin on both sides to funnel the heat back on my feet and legs work ten or more hours. no more those days are long gone. so do like i do stay in and stay warm. we have nice warm brick sided house with plenty insulation in it, we have a farm tap on one of the four pipe lines that cross our land. so natural gas furnace to keep us warm.Nancy keeps the t stat set on 74º. I tell her I have paid my dues. when spring temperature's get here and warm out is time enough to go to shop. Have a great day.

Good Morning everyone.well see no activity yet, so I will check back again after while. I took a relaxer pill and went to bed about 10:30 slept through until 4:00 AM. think those Naps through the day while watching a movie is the problem with a good night's sleep.
