Friday Night Steam

Wow! All I need is a bigger house with a basement, lotsa money and I'd be all set!

My brother had a lot of the 'action cars' when he was a young boy. Wonder what ever  happened to them...


Today's funny :o)

Ahhhh, Spring!

Went to....

Went to Tractor Supply yesterday to pick up 50 pounds of feed for the gang. 
They were having a sale and I spotted this:

Kinda reminds me of this fella:

Hubby getting wood ready to burn for 2019:

My favorite tree in Coopville - Old Gnarly:

Hubby also cut the lawn:

Now we just need flowers - lots and lots of flowers!

Took the plastic off three sides of the pen, It will still get wet in there if it rains, but at least enough air can get in there to dry it out. Still have the tarp on the roof, though. The gang had feast eating all the bugs that were under the plastic!

Be still, my beating heart .... sigh....

Today's funny :o)

A BIG H/T to Wild River!

Nineteen Californians go to the movies. The ticket lady asks "Why so many of you?"
Buddy replies, "The film said 18 or over."

My daughter asked me for a pet spider for her birthday, so I went to our local pet shop and they were $70.
Forget it, I thought, I can get one 
cheaper off the web.

I was at an A.T.M. yesterday. A little old lady asked if I could check her balance, so I pushed her over.

Statistically, six out of seven dwarfs are not Happy.

My neighbor knocked on my door at 2:30 am. Can you believe that! 2:30 amLuckily for him, I was still up playing my bagpipes.

The wife was counting all the nickels and dimes out on the kitchen table when she suddenly got very angry and started shouting and crying for no reason.
I thought to myself, "She's going through the change."

My girlfriend thinks that I'm a stalker.
Well, she's not exactly my 
girlfriend yet.

An East Indian fellow has moved in next door. He has traveled the world, has swum with sharks, has wrestled bears and climbed the highest mountain.
came as no surprise to learn his name was Bindair Dundat.

Just some pics:

We've had a bear walk up our driveway every morning this week. I am NOT going to go outside and try to get a pic of it. It had knocked down the neighbor's bird seed feeder last week. He took it down and will put it up again next Winter. Lots of critters abound here in Coopville - bears,  damn deer, bunnies and groundhogs. Pretty soon the flat possums will decorate the road. Ahhh, Spring!

More vultures are roosting:

Have no idea what these are - just growing in one small patch. If they get flowers, I'll take
 a photo of 'em!

Lots and lots of these - they have no scent, but are pretty:

Two more tulips popped up:

We are going to have a lot of lilies!


Mr. Froggy - he lives by the deck. The gang always knock him over....

Hubby hung up the rooster wind chime yesterday - I love the sound it makes!


A peek of India munching on some hay:

Not just an ordinary cinder block...

You can make a flower planter with them:

Some "yard art":

Fence posts:

Grow some veggies ( I use them to plant my potatoes):

A cool looking bench:

 A neat firewood holder:

A bookcase

And even stairs!

What have you ever used them for?
