    Pattie, that sounds great. Do you use block or poured concrete for foundation walls in Maine?
    I assume you are using a pre manufactured home?

    Becky, I just looked at the radar and see you are getting wet, hope the pond house ain't in the pond.
    Looks like the pigeons are safe for today. It has stopped raining up here in the city, me and Reese are
    going to run some blinds in Alpharetta.
    Ya'll have fun.

    We are waiting out the monsoon here in Auburn. Just looked at the radar... apparently its supposed to get worse before it gets better. We went out on the bike this morning before work, when it was just lightly raining. I'm hoping there will be a break in the afternoon where we can go train. Tomorrow we are back to work as usual before the weekend. Maybe we can train on Saturday, but I am on a limited radius this weekend due to work obligations.

    Still raining here in Northwest Alabama. Luckily the smoker is on the back porch. Warming up now. Smoked bologna for lunch and snacks, then ribs, whole loin and smoked corn on the cob. Oh yeah, a little smoked sausage for an appetizer. Maybe the day won't be a total washout. Also some fresh peaches cut up with a little sugar and watermelon for dessert.

    David, I just got back from running blinds with Reese.
    It is starting to rain again, I am working tomorrow but will be there on Saturday.
    Hopefully, we can get in a good day.

    Hot and humid so training starts early and ends early. Got a little in this morning, but have to work tomorrow. Hoping to get out Sat morning early for 3-4 hrs and same for Sun. Unusually long hot spell for Southern New England. Hope this breaks soon.

    got up early to go train with dillard and kaiser. it was raining so i turned over. the rain slacked off so i went out and hacked up some blinds close by.

    then went to lunch at mom and dad's. nothing like momma's cooking, especially this time of year when the garden is happnin'. going to sherry's folks at 2 for dinner and such.

    btw i made squash and zuchinni casseroles for both cookouts. yesterday i went to day train with my good friend carter hughes at windrush. when i got in the truck to come home celeste had me a LARGE bag of just picked, yellow squash and zukes in the truck. i added a little cheese, bread crumbs, butter, heavy cream and a bunch of vidalia onion........thanks carter and celeste, erbody loved it!
