HAH!!  Mama, is in the local paper! I think last week was the last day of The Thursday Night Market.

I may have to scan it.

Nice, a-ron. Did she sell a lot of her stuff?

Re: the scanner, you could also try taking a picture of the picture with the camera in your phone or tablet.

That's how I've replaced my old scanner.

I've found that I can easily copy any photo or document in decent quality resolution, simply by laying it down with a good light source placed where the shadow of my hand doesn't block the light (from the top), and snap a digital pic.

Then I can use any simple photo editing app to crop the edges.

Piece of cake.

Just a suggestion, of course.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I think my phone has a tiny memory card, I filled it up quick and have not tried to format it.  The wife's iPhone can take great photos and even videos without having to rely on YouTube.

Once the Sprint bill gets here, Mama is already using Consumer Cellular, I will probably get a new (cheap) phone.

I went to the grocery this morning, I had this on my list.


DAMMIT!  I forgot to get some!  I had just replaced one bulb, there are 4 of them in the kitchen, it lasted less than 24 hours! Angry

I did get some breakfast sausage, I'm going to make some sausage gravy a little later on today.  Tongue

It's so freaking cold here, I wish I would have bought some wood pellets. I talked about this last year, they (Menards) was always sold out.  I have plastic covering the fireplace because the insulation isn't very good around the wood burner. The space heater is struggling to keep it 70 degrees in here.

I'm not taking down the plastic until I'm ready to clean the flue pipe, a REAL PITA!  I'm not starting a fire until the pipe is cleaned.  I can get a whole truck load of wood, one face cord, for about 60 bucks.  Enough to heat the house for about 3 weeks, depending HOW cold it is.  I usually don't have to start burning wood until about mid November.

FOOD!

We won a medium order of fries!  I won't even eat their french fries anymore but Mama will. Tongue

I have a new choice for breakfast!  Sausage gravy is pretty friggin easy even for an a ron like me. It's soooooo good! 

Some Johnsonville original breakfast sausage, I'm still working on the perfect measured ingredients for one serving. I think even a very picky member would be pleased and offer a positive review...

If his doctor let him eat good sh*t like this!  Tongue

I took the carb off of the leaf blower, I use compressed air to clean up the external parts.

I pulled off the fuel line, forced some air into the carburetor through the inlet, it runs like a champ!

I tightened up the tarp on the boat and backed that into place.  I didn't even hit the garage! Embarrassed

I'm charging up my iPod, the other camera.  I have to post it on facebook first.

Thye trees are looking pretty cool about now.

This little town has been a PITA, but we really do like it here.  I've watched these trees almost double in size in the past 12 years.  The emerald ash borer has been a big problem across the state, I feel pretty lucky that the Ash tree is doing so well.

I really want to go back to The Den sometime soon - we had some infestation up there, also. Think it was another tree eater but it did require removal of trees, which really bothers me. I'm a huge 'tree hugger', so I feel for ya there, aka - I hope you do not loose your ash, or hopefully can nip it in the bud early on.

Sounds like something that if you're not careful, could become a real pain in the ash.

Yeah, I know.

That was pretty weak.

I'm just kinda draggin' ash today.
