The wife just ask.......why in the world do you keep going out front. Lol.. I had to get the 7.3. Started and moved so I could get the trailer out. So I started the coals while I was charging the batteries. Some dumb dumb forgot to plug it in. She thinks I am nuts for even testing the basket tonight..

One minute till the next check.

Nope........I was peeling layers. This event started while I was working on the pickup. Once the truck was fixed I moved myself indoors.

How are you only wearing a sweatshirt in -2° temps? It was -1° wind chill here this morning and I felt like my face was going to fall off just bringing the dogs out and checking on my chickens.

You have chickens? Are they extra crispy or original recipe?

SORRY, I couldn resist!

Saw that in the movie " Son-in-Law "

Btw S1.... That was a keen eye you had there. I had to go back 3 times to see what you were referencing


Make no mistake, there ain't no powder in this Puff ! And... I'm not really a crazy person but I play one in real life

It's been in the single digits most of this week with wind chill below zero. So for a normal day I wear along sleeve t shirt and along sleeve button up shirt. Unless I'm out for more then 5 or 10 minutes that's all I wear. Besides my jeans.

When I was out working on this I was swearing a double weight hoodie and bibs.

The other thing that helps is the fact that I am not exactly skinny.
