    It is going to get real lonely here on the net with all you guys gone playing !

    Fear it not, we have lived through a few of these.

    They will soon return with fresh tales of dare doings and skulduggery.

    We will shake our heads in silent wonderment and very much enjoy the photographs, maybe even talking pictures, if we are lucky.

    After many many years of camping, Jeeping, even staying in a motel.. There is no way to get ready early and not have a lot to do the night before. I'm wore out.

    They are calling for rain tonight & a lot of heat through the weekend. It was 85 here yesterday & that is 10 above normal for here. Could be a hot summer with this starting so early in the year.

    Well, at the moment it is torrential rain with winds gusting to 50knots. Both charters for the weekend are cancelled.
    Tides are great for an early morning duck hunt so I think I may take advantage of the crappy weather and head out onto the harbour for some fun..............Wind and rain should make the birds low and slow.........
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Just had my 19th "last day of school" day. Got about 9 more to go before the final one. If I survive that long.

    Took the boy to see Deadpool 2 today. First comic book movie I liked. Not bad.

    I wondered how they were gonna do Stan Lee's camio with his medical problems. Very clever. Boy missed it though.

    I am taking the day off from work. I was not able to make the shoot this year so I decided to punish myself with 11 hours in the sun. I did get Casa de Pollo ready for habitation though. 



    Tomorrow if I have time after cleaning up some of my mess and doing some other chores I will wrap the sun deck in chicken wire.

    My boy and I had vanilla ice cream and carmel syrup. He put some syrup on his, than I grabbed it and smothered mine well asking him why so tight with the syrup? He looks at me with his jaw hanging open and says gimme that! and redoes his right.🍧

    Gotta learn these kids everything🐒

    You managed more than me & I was in the heat for 10 hours too. The last few hours I did take a lot of breaks in the shade. To help with the heat I did power wash my truck with cold water. Now that felt good.

    I didn’t build the entire thing yesterday. This has spanned most of three Saturdays, fabricobbling takes five times longer than fabrication. The bottom cage I built entirely from my scrap metal pile. The top cage was given to me by my Dad. The roof and siding tin used to be the roof on my back porch. The wood floors are leftover OSB from the new back porch. The only new materials have been screws, latches, hinges and handles. 

    It kind of kept growing, until I realized I have gone full potato.

    The siding and roof tin tin used to be my back porch roof. The wood floors and ramps are leftover OSB from the new back porch. 

    The upper cage Dad gave me, all I did was put a roof on it and a floor. 

    So far the only money I have spent is on screws, latches, hinges and handles. Even the chicken wire was given to me. 

    It it just kept growing, until I realized I had gone full potato. 

    I will say fabricobbling takes five times longer than fabricating. I I ever have to build another one of these I will bite the bullet and buy new material. 

    Huh. I thought the forum ate that previous post, so I typed it again and there the SOB is.

    In all that heat yesterday I did manage to clean up my box truck. Today same heat so will probably stay in as much as I can.

    Did you toss an open can of tuna in the enclosed setup to give it the stripey orange cat test before you put live birds in it?

     Nah. I have built enough fence to know that cats won’t be the problem. My wife’s kicking dog, skunks and opossums will be the real challenge.

    I was wondering about that movie. Have to get it when it comes out on DVD.

    Got brass from the shoot sorted.......44 Spl/Mag/.45 Colt in the tumbler running now, filled it up. Next will be .38 Spl and .223/5.56..........

    Gotta clean the guns next...........today or tomorrow. Took 10 and 8 were fired.........forgot to bring the 9mm LC9s to the firing line (left in car console) and the .22 mag was in my pocket.........too much other stuff to shoot and goings on kept me distracted.
