Went ta Church,first time in a long time. Last time They had two preachers and tha first'un figgered He could preach long enough so's tha second would'nt have time ta preach.Ha! Never underestimate tha endurance of a Southern hardshell Baptist preacher ,That ole boy got right up there'n proved HE could preach longer'n tha first one.
Time We got out of there I told Folks I felt like I'd payed for sins I had'nt even commited yet.
Now They have a new preacher'n Folks have kept tellin Me I'd like Him,so figured We'd give it a whirl. Told'im We'd be back next Sunday. Never too soon ta get Your house in order.

Hi Joe,
I thought the armpit was Newark with a little bit of Camden NJ thrown in?

You might be right about Jersey.

Get the last of the garden in.

Get started on digging the trench to run water out to the garage.

If I'm lucky, watch the sun sink behind the Adirondack Mts from my boat.

All the while thinking about just how lucky I am... Thanks to all you veterans.

Morning: Performing my Chaplain duties at about 12 cemeteries with the Joseph Newton Smith Post #83 of Lincoln, NH.
Afternoon: Calling hours and funeral for my friend who was killed Friday (as I reported yesterday). He was a Viet Nam veteran...Purple Heart.
That ought to be enough for one day.

Hey Joe, what part of Jersey? Ron/Pa    Posted 05-26-2002 at 04:16:39       [Reply]  [No Email]
I go there daily with bottled water? The western part sure has some pretty farms.

Ron


Cowboy Joe    Posted 05-26-2002 at 08:11:03       [Reply]  [No Email]
Ron/Pa - You're right about that part of the state. However, I'll be visiting my sister in New Milford, NJ, about a 15 minute drive from Manhattan, the armpit of the East Coast.

Usually try to decorate the graves of the Vets for the local VFW this year my 82 year old dad did it himself, (he's a Vet)
So with that always done a week or two in advance, it's nothing but kick back and stay home. This year the xyl and I will plant garden, finish planting corn, lay down some hay (weather permitting) and then engage in a case or two of arson on some former residents of our farm.
(chickens, hogs, steers GRIN)
Have fun Joe,
and Thanx to all you vets out there, thanks to you we enjoy days like this!!!!!!!
Ron

I take a single Jack-In-The-Pulpit in a pot and set it next to my cousins Memorial at the local beach.
The beach is dedicated to him as he was the only one to die in Viet Nam from our town.
I leave it most of the summer and then replant it for next year.
No one has ever touched it...

Have Monday off. Friends arriving at 6:30 am to help me continue building my barn. Trusses are up, and so we are installing purlins. Peak is at about 21 ft (gambrel roof), so rented a scissors lift - seems pretty high up on this platform that tends to sway just a bit. Hope it's not windy on Monday! :)

Machines are wonderful. Couldn't imagine doing it from an extension ladder - especially raising those trusses. I know folks do it, but I am glad we've got the scissors to do it. Add to that bulldozers and backhoes for excavating, Bobcats with augers for those big deep post holes, nail guns, and it sure makes me appreciate what folks had to do a hundred years ago to build a barn.

Chuck; You will havew to post some pictures of the new barn your building. Don't let me be the only one boreing you guys with all the pictures of mine proceeding along. Mark H.

Mark...Had a friend out yesterday taking digital pics and will get those on a CD tonight, so hope to post one later this week. Mine's coming a lot slower than yours since friends are helping me do it ourselves. Started the weekend with just poles and girts up, ended with most of the roof framing done and windows installed. Mine is 24x36 with 12 ft eaves and with a 12x36 open shed along one side. It has a gambrel roof, so height to the peak is about 21 ft. We rented a scissors lift over the weekend to do the trusses and purlins, and other roof framing since it was a lot safer and faster than ladders.

Still, having it done by a builder sure goes much faster. Instead of counting construction in days, I count in weeks! Of course, with only working on it mostly Friday and Saturday, that slows it down.

I will be working all weekend and have Monday off--but I would rather work Monday since that is when I would be making "the big money!" Enjoy your day.

Staying home except for taking flowers to the cemetery.
