    Good Morning from down here where it's 37, with a light rain, and headed for 50. I grilled some steaks and asparagus with black eyed peas last night that turned out campbells mmm mmm good.

    FU - I had the 69 1/2 ton in Orange. You could see that thing coming for a mile away. I put probably 300,000 miles on Ol' Orange. Originally it had a 360 and I rebuilt it once and later put in a 390 from a junkyard. It always run on the hotter side. Never would overheat, but the needle was far to the right.

    I use a setup with micro sprinklers. Kind of a combination between drip and using a normal sprinkler. Depends on how you set up the sprinkler heads, but basically mine are set up to do almost a mist just above soil level. Not quite as targeted as drip, but I went that route after discovering the root systems in my garden were going all over crazy down below. Guess it's from how loose the dirt is or something. So instead of running targeted drips, the micro sprinklers came into the equation.

    They work very, very well, and I have them set up on a timer so I don't have to worry about them.


    Of course the wife isn't super fond of how my current setup is routed. I take a water hose from the faucet and string it around on the back of the fence on the lowest rail. It's up out of the way, but she thinks it looks a little country. (Yeah, so???)

    So now this year I'm highly considering a more permanent solution. I'll take a flat blade and trench in PVC pipe from a riser right by the faucet, over to the garden. I may even extend it around the rest of the yard. Add a quick disconnect and a jumper hose at the faucet and it should be good to go. Of course it gets drained a bit for the winter. Doesn't have to be completely, just enough so when the water in the line freezes it has room to expand without busting the pipe.

    Haven't really planned any of that out yet, but it'll work and PVC is cheap. :D

    Howdy. 38* now, 57* later.

    Been busy already with cleaning, laundry, and bill paying. Now I'm about to start hookin'.

    Supper: still got some pork roast in the fridge. Just to bug Keith I think I will turn it into something Mexican.

    Sophie Mae says hello and it's time to go potty. Y'all make sure you hit the target.

    Laters.

    All of a sudden, Lake Norman is at full pond. I could tell they were letting water in by the debris floating while I was out yesterday.

    "Mr. Mac I would of kept one for a FRESH FISH SUPPER. IJS. "

    Bob, I have two Hybrid Striped Bass and one nice spotted bass in my holding cage available when I want some fresh fish.

    Amen to that! Fresh grilled, fried, pan seared with butter, or smoked Catfish will surely be a delight to your taste buds on a cold winters day. It gives you hope that Spring is coming and warmer days are ahead.

    Of course, nothing beats fresh catfish on a riverbank... It's something the youngsters should appreciate now because there will be a time when knees and backs will indicate otherwise... LOL

    Good morning:laugh:.
    Here in UP-YONDER it's NO TEETH TUESDAY - ALL DAY.

    Y'all got my taste buds tingling with the talk about fish so today while i'm out buying some more wood for the next set of flying bug homes I will have to go to the drive-thru at McDonalds and get several filet O fish sandwiches. Yum Yum and probably some fries.

    I got up at the crack of 10:30 so for now it's cigarettes and coffee.:coffee:

    Might even stop at Walgreens to replenish first aid supplies, BE PREPARED - some kid told me that.

    This is very similar to O'l Orange, except I had the regular side mirrors and a 102" whip antenna, gun rack and over the bed tool box. Everything else was the same. It even had factory A/C (rarely used it because it would freeze up).
