And the latest bulletin from downstairs is that the beam going into the kitchen is not even sitting on the post visible from outside (and now inside :() and is attached to it by one (1) horizontal nail. Hey, it's held up for years!

Wow!

How long have you been in the place?

I figured it was attributable to his being a good southern Christian, but I was trying to be considerate. ;)

Yes. The older I get the more I dislike riding around cars. I like going where they can't go.

I've gotten upset at my share of people over the years. I've never had the urge to pull down their pants in that moment (at least not any males).

We are getting nuisance snow tonight, then a deep freeze on Saturday followed by a big rain on Sunday.

I see more fake miles in my future.

Velo Vol 01-06-22 09:48 AM

Oh boy.

:(

We'll have to do some roof work this year - I'm afraid about what we might see when we peel back the layers.

Mojo31 01-06-22 10:22 AM

We had to rip up part of our roof a few years ago because water was getting under the shingles and rotted the decking. Couldn't see if from the outside. A plumber servicing the water heaters saw the rotted wood while in the attic. Luckily found it before water came through the roof deck.

You never know what might be lurking under things.

I noticed that you have conveniently left out, not pulling down your pants in anger, from this statement of denial. Just pointing it out for the record.

The Philly school district has already decided to go virtual tomorrow because of the snow. *smh* During the 3 years I spent in public school (6th-8th grade) we would have to show up when there was 6" on the ground and more falling. Kids there days are soft. :50:

The Eagles 8:15 game Saturday night should be interesting.

Same. We're dealing with wind and temps at the moment. The one warm day over the next 7 is supposed to be a rain day. Lots of indoor. I'm just happy that trainers and tech have come so far over the last decade.

Ugly is such an ugly word.

Fugly is not so ugly. Or, maybe it's more so.

Moose stew, anyone?

Anyone following the Djokovic story?

Poor fella is being treated like a prisoner in a dirty hotel. Even had his phone taken away from him for 3 hours when he entered Australia. The horrors. Novak Djokovic being 'treated like a prisoner' by Australian authorities, according to his mother (msn.com)

We've had venison stew and elk stew, but not moose stew.

Did some research. Moose is very expensive, if you can even get it.

Loin of venison in huckleberry sauce remains one of the best meals I have ever had eating out.

An old friend recently nagged a 10 point deer with a crossbow in Missouri. She says she'll have some for me. I once made venison lasagna.

I remember lying in bed before getting up, listening to the radio Dad always turned on when he got up, waiting to hear whether Upper Adams School District would have a Snow Day. 6" would definitely do it, if it fell overnight. I remember one time when I was about 10, there was a big snow storm that put down about 8-12", so school was cancelled. Then that night, there was a windstorm that piled up drifts across a lot of roads. School was cancelled. Then there was a ice storm. School was cancelled. It was like Christmas!

I remember the snow drifted high enough that it covered the 4' snow fences they used to put along the leeward side of the playground, and then the crust of ice on top of it was sturdy enough that a skinny 10 year old kid like me could actually walk on it, walking right over the snow fence.

I spent five minutes on an art supply store's website this morning and have been seeing nothing but adds for the place since then.

The moose I've had was free, but the guy who gave it to us had to pay the expensive Non-Resident tag fees on top of a Non-Resident license.

OTOH, once you shoot one, there's a hell of a lot of it.

Understandable in the sticks. Until 5th grade I went to school in the Philly 'burbs. Bus ride involved some hilly backroads, and snow would stick more easily out there. We were closed many days when city schools were open, which presented problems because mom taught public school in the city. Grandma usually came to watch us.

Went to high school at a boarding school in western MA. One day it snowed so hard and so fast that they closed school that afternoon so staff/faculty members who did not live in town could get home. The only thing that stayed open was the cafeteria. And we are talking about people who were used to driving in snow. At one point snow was falling at a rate of at least 3"/hour.

In 2003 I did a guided backpack trip in Glacier N.P. My guide (I was the only one who signed up for that week.) led moose hunting trips in Alaska. He talked about eating moose ribs. I kept imagining something out of "The Flintstones."

I know I have had elk jerky, and I think I had an elk burger in MT. Bison burgers for sure. Several times. Bison steaks as well.
