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 09:56 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...

So spring is here, really??

Posted 03-25-2016 at 01:26 PM by onebuck

Hi,

Been home for three weeks today and spring is in the chilly air! Played some senior golf with other members on some warmer days. It's 40 F outside and a bit cold to be on the course.

I have been trying to get things ready for the season. I took my Cub into the shop for some warranty work. Turns out the shop said 'The trans-axle had to be replaced. To much work to just replace the seals and that the time spent would exceed the money earned from the Cub warranty.'...
