Late coming on -- guess I missed the warm cinn rolls, probably all cold ones too. :( BUT -- just made a fresh pot of coffee. Felt the need! Late lunch, too.

Beyond regular chores, been doing some touch up mowing, weed eating from yesterdays mow and a little bush hog patch for a neighbor. Loaded and hauled a couple big pallets to DD to stack wood upon. heading bac out in a few. Lots more out there waiting for me. :hu Made a batch of soft cheese to take to chickens.

:caf this is over for now..... see ya later :old

Eh... I have seen -20F but that is rare... we tend to stay in the tens in the winter.... unless we lose the cloud cover....

Without clouds it gets way cold (for us), so below zero, but usually not colder than -10F.

But then in the summer we are usually mid 50s with highs of mid 60. No joke.

Alaskan's call this area the Banana Belt since we are so mild, and still get some sun.

Kodiak and SE Alaska are more mild... as in their winter lows are usually in the 30s, but they are also rainforest...no joke, just a cold one, so SO MUCH rain! The school kids there think the sky is supposed to be gray.
Ha ha! Some parts of Hawaii are the same way, always cloudy and raining.
Summers in the 50's? That would be something else! :lol:

I was JOKING with you!! Maybe I should have put in a :lol: or a :gigbut one shouldn't laugh at their own (attempt at) humor .... unless you are/were Red Skelton.
Oh...oops! :gig Usually I get jokes but I guess I missed that one!
It's hard not to laugh at your own humor sometimes, isn't it? Especially when you're making jokes and no one gets it or they have no sense of humor!
Guess i'll have to look up Red Skelton now...i'm curious ;)

Thanks - need it this morning! Heading out of town this afternoon and still have lots of last minute stuff to do to get the critters ready to be home alone. I have to give them the talk about not having wild parties and such! No need to remind Cowboy that he's in charge because he always is, lol.

Rain late yesterday was annoying sprinkles...evolved into some light showers off & on until daybreak. Only 1/2" total. Needed more but, thankful for any. Of course, I had hoped to butcher roos today/tomorrow and "all wet" won't cut it. Plus, warmed up. Now they have a reprieve until Friday when our coming rain front has passed (Wed) and the following cool front arrives.:idunno Warm & flies is not my idea of a good butcher date. :old

Little happening outside this AM until it dries off. Guess inside will get some attention. My coffee pot will be emptied...keeps me moving. :caf Have about an hour of online course work to do before the housework. At least "they" pay me for doing...plus, it's required update work. :D

Google him and look at videos. This clip has early Rolling Stones.
It doesn't have any of Red's characters though, you'll have to watch other videos for them and of course they are why you watch Red Skelton.

Check the ceiling for pizza when you get home :)

We had showers/t-storms during much of the night, for a total of about an inch. Much needed, but what we didn't need was the power outages. I'm not sure what that was all about (the few times I woke up, conditions didn't seem that all that severe to me), but the power went off several times. Whatever was going on, it seems to have messed up our internet connection; I am using my phone as a hot spot this morning (gotta get our in-house tech support on this one:rolleyes:).

The quality of the video is poor, but here's a sample of Red Skelton, as one of his more familiar personae, "Clem Kadiddlehopper:"
