Calling Charlie Tuna! Mr. Tuna!

Levi is going full-monty in Playgirl.

Here he is going half-monty changing a diaper.

A week of yard work

I have been working in the year all week, except for yesterday when it rained alllllllllllllllllllllllll daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

I am trying to sell my snow blower -- it has 6 forward speeds and two reverse -- but I need to have it serviced first.

My riding mower has two blades. They clank together when I start the mower so I have to have that fixed.

My power mower is self propelled but it just ain't propelling! That also needs to be fixed.

I paid a plumber to fix three plumbing problems. He charged me $485. Two of the problems he didn't actually fix.

I've had my car for 2 years. I just discovered that it has a voice-activated radio. That seems to me to the the most useless idea of all time. On the other hand, they should put trash compactors in cars -- little tiny trash compactors.

Mechanically yours,

The city has added a sidewalk to one of the streets near where I live. We have rural-type mailboxes so they left space between the curb and the new sidewalk for the mailbox poles. Oops, they didn't leave enough room for the, you know, mailboxes. The have had to turn them all sideways on the side of the street with the sidewalk. I don't know if the mailman in his little post office truck has to pull into each driveway. A closeup of one of the mailboxes is below. The street is still technically closed--I guess they don't want people to laugh at the funny row of mailboxes. Oops!

Here comes the cold!

We have had bunches of rain! It streamed up from Texas and Oklahoma following I-44. The remnants of this SW system can be seen in the lower right of the radar image above.

A cold front with rain is pressing in from the northwest. That is the batch of green in the middle left of the image. The blue in front of the cold front is the windshift line--the gusty winds that hit before the cold front gets here.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling. Nope, it was just a walnut.

Scary bulletin from Weather Bureau above.
Picture that I just took (4:35 PM CDT) from my back deck below.
