We are blessed with living on a large lake and having many of our kids/grandkids nearby - we haven't been lacking in the "Fun" department :-) We also attended the "World Skim Bike Championship" held near our home - this video is from last year, but it's pretty hilarious!

Guess many of those entrants don't water ski
Tip of skis UP and lean back LOL


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Had the camper out 5 times. Helping my friend (behind the scenes) who sells at a Farmers Market. She gives me all the produce I can handle in exchange so I’ve froze & canned quite a bit.

I sew quilts for charity and just made & delivered 30 tote bags to Child Protection Services so they have something other than plastic grocery bags when they remove children from an unsafe place.

I'm just binge watching all day since I got nothing else to do. I think I'm gonna cook delicious dinner for my family using our Cook N Home cookware.

redoing master bath...bath tub to shower conversion
oh yea ...lots of fun LOL


9/29 UPDATE:

Project got postponed due to out of stock shower pan

Finally got it yesterday
Old tub/surround and tile OUT (Sawzall is my friend)

Had to redo/reroute hot/cold water lines. During build of house floor jockey plumber stubbed them up thru FLOOR 3" outside of wall (old tub fit over top of them)
Low profile shower pan would NOT....thanks to 'sharkbite' fittings they are now inside the wall and connected to single lever shower control valve.

Had to level subfloor ...it was off level 1/4 bubble AWAY from drain
Had to redo/reroute drain line to match up with pan drain hole
**every project REQUIRES at least 1x trip back to hardware store

Got pan set, control valve plumbed in and drain hooked up yesterday

Today I set the surround walls, installed 2 grab bars (1 at entry & 1 in center of back wall), installed the double sliding doors, installed trim around exterior of walls/control valve trim-control lever, shower arm-hand held shower and 2 matching towel rings

Cleaned up.....not near as messy as I had thought it would be
Demo and install went very well....HAD FUN doing it

Tomorrow......HOT Shower time YEAH!!

Recently completed a garden pond with waterfall in backyard, it certainly drew the frogs....had to train our Border collie to stay out of it.

Wife is planning youngest daughters wedding.

We have made up lost ground in the camping department. Just spent a week on a beautiful lake in southern VA " philpott " where I caught my biggest bass of the year.

First full year of retirement has been very nice to say the least.

I'm having fun with my farm since it has been a while since I had a harvest.

POORBOY: I remember being in Tioga as a kid. Is it still pretty there?


I lived there for ten years. Since it is by law to remain undisturbed it is every bit as beautiful. As is the North Boundary area. "Ferdinand" the East Gate NP parks employee let me through at least a 100 times free because I repaired broken down RVs on site with zero noise and disruption of ambiance. Tuolomne Meadowns campground. When LIMBO my Malamute gave Ferdinand a kiss on the cheek the deal was sealed.
