Happy Hump Day
« on: May 20, 2020, 09:41:28 am »
Good morning everyone, it has been raining here about 24 hrs.  wfwf
Our neighborhood ponds are almost overflowing, rivers way up, ditches full, etc.  And this is not from Arthur, this is some other system.  Willie, you have rain up there yet?  My goldfish are enjoying all this rainwater in their pond and the frogs too.  And the flowers, so I won't complain.

Good morning Barb and everyone. Another windy day here but no rain as of yet. Yesterday's wind did me no favors as it forced loose a piece of siding about 30 feet high on the side of my house.

Since it's so high up it is not something I can fix myself and the damage is excluded from the useless limited lifetime warranty.

It's an easy fix that I won't hurt my wallet too much but my problem now s getting someone to fix it. One contracter told me 2 to 3 weeks before he can get to it.  huh I am waiting for a couple of other folks to call me back.

The bad part is that we will be getting some of that rain Barb is getting tomorrow but not nearly as much. huh 

Too Many Fish. Not Enough Tanks.

...hello all....

...we got up and went to Canyon Lake today...they have a nice "paddle boat"ride for an hour and a is well narrated by the captain and it was the best time yet that we've been to see Mountain Sheep...there were more than usual and closer to the shore...It amazes me how they can walk along a 2" ledge without any trouble at all and can jump from rock to rock up to 20' apart...!

... received to relatively rare Echinodorus cultivars in the mail when we got home...arrived in good shape...also got the first bunch of stuff for redoing my RO system...the rest should be coming between now and Sunday...

...have a fellow coming tomorrow to get 20+ Bloody Mary shrimp...I'm moving them out to let the little ones grow out...keeping all the berried females...think I'll get some blue ones of some sort for another small tank I have set up with nothing in it...

...time to either plant my new Echinodorus or fix dinner if Lucy's ready to eat...!

PS...Willie...sorry about your siding...
PSS...Barb...remember to keep your head above the waterline...! :D
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!
