Happy New Year!!!!

Posted 01-01-2017 at 09:45 AM by onebuck

Hi,

A new beginning for us to have more happy days throughout the new year. My wife informs me we are done for now with work on the winter home here in Florida. Amen!!

I have a few small things to get done that are necessary. So my task stack is FIFO for now. Playing Gardner and landscaper to improve the looks on the outside. Our HOA just covers the maintenance not improvements so we need to get things looking better. We need to rearrange since some of the floral has...

It's not snowing here in Florida but in Illinois it's a mess.

Hi,

I am wintering in Florida and remodeling our new winter home. Hiring as much as possible since I bought here to vacation not do daily work on a house. Labor not as cheap as I was told. Finding reputable contractors is tough.

My wife has gone mad purchasing new furniture. I spend on the necessary things like a new 65" Smart 4K Ultra-HD HDTV for the living room. I just bought a 50" Smart 4K Ultra-Hd HDTV for the Florida room for guests and when the wife doesn't...

Hi,

Cold front coming through has cooled down the area for a deserved relief from the 3 digit heat. Nice out! I think that I will wait a few hours to let the dew dry off then play a round of golf today. I can not mow until the lawn dries out since I bag my clippings.

I miss being on the farm but I do like the luxury of my work load being a lot less these days. Sure, I would be baling hay for the horse and storing for the winter feed. Keeps you fit but does wear on you...

Hi,

Summer days of July/Aug in Central Illinois are miserable at times with heat index in triple figures. I play in the senior summer league and we tee off at noon. Shows how smart we are in old age. Sure it's nice in early spring or late fall but when the heat index gets high then things can get dangerous. I drink at least 4-6 bottles of water per round and everyone teases me for drinking so much water. Still I can have some problems, at times I sweat so bad that I cannot stand...

Spring has sprung!!!

Posted 05-23-2016 at 10:56 AM by onebuck

Hi,

Finally getting some beautiful weather here in Central Illinois. I told my wife, that we will be leaving for Florida in late Oct/16 and not returning until May/17. See said, 'We've got a lot of work for the new home in Florida. I said, 'I am not going to Florida to work all the time'. I will do what can be done and hire what I can no longer do physically. I am not going to put that new hardwood down that she wants in the rest of the house. I've done the last three homes with hardwood...
