Below a sketch of my neighbor’s longhorns. I’d like to do a painting with dramatic lights and darks since they are in the woods. Hanging out close to the house today because it’s really windy. Blowing the chickens around.

Really nice drawing. If you do that in a painting, post a picture of it! Real windy here too. Winds 20-30 MPH with gusts up to 40 MPH. Your poor chickens!

Strong winds today up to 47 MPH gusts and 30 MPH sustained. A pine tree top twisted out and landed next to the driveway.

Trees are down all over the area, blocking roads and knocking down power lines. More than 25,000 out of power across east Texas. Wind stripped a metal roof off a commercial building in Kilgore, a nearby town.

I worked outside today, taking down cow panels and pulling up T-posts in the garden. Got a little more to do. For me at least, it’s been a nice day!

Seems like a lot of damage! We get winds like that many times a year.

Sure am glad you weren't blown away while working outside! :ep

Up at 4....thanks to a really loud truck passing by out there! Open windows let's a lot of noise in that you'd never have if closed. 🤫 fresh air and natural cooling can have a cost. Truly it's unusual out here but, happens. Usually it's a motorcycle or such that is "touring" around and not this time of day/night. Oh well....had to get up sometime. But a rooster wake up at daybreak is better.

I'm getting the rain they suggested. Hear it now. Supposedly half inch or so over several hours. Plus it's predicted to be windy with this front. May stay more coastal and I won't get a lot of any of it. Working today, so not an issue either way as I'll be in stores. Few hrs in each, won't even have much in and out to vehicle. Would be nice for it to stop while I feed this morning though 😁

Coffee is good but, I'm thinking food would be, too. Couple sausage patties and heat those leftover fried apples is sounding tasty. Guess I'll do that to start my day. Maybe add an English muffin. 🤔

Sounds like a good breakfast! I guess working yesterday got me tired. I woke up at 3 AM, but went back to sleep and got up at 7. I sure needed that sleep! Think I'll go back to the garden today and finish pulling up T-posts and take down the 3 remaining cow panels. Have to pull up the tomato vines, they are in the way.

Yawn.

We tend to sleep in until 8:30 on Friday... so of course got a call at 8 sharp... after a night of tossing and turning i was dead asleep at 8. :idunno

The call was that we are pre-approved for a refinance on our home mortgage.

:rolleyes:


We are on the home stretch on that thing... already have a pretty good interest. Anyway, not interested.

Well at least you have a mortgage that could be refinanced so there IS the possibility you MIGHT want what they are peddling.

I keep getting calls about my "about to expire or has already expired" home warranty :gig :lol: Right, like a house built minimally 170 years ago has a warranty. We also get the same thing on the two 15 year old cars.

At least they don't call early in the morning.

I’m sick of auto warranty calls. I don’t answer unknown calls, so they just leave messages. The truck is an 04, the car is an 08. I wish I knew the call was an auto warranty call. I’d answer and have some fun.
