    Morning. Pretty but cool day. Off to run errands. BTW: while in Ft. Myers my National Rental had satellite radio. Track 4 is 1940's music and news. They announce a passenger train leaving on track 4 and then give the names of the cities it stops in. Pretty neat to hear the old passenger dispatches. Later

    We just bought a new vehicle that came with a six-month subscription to Sirus. I'll check it out, not that I plan on paying for it once it has to be renewed. Something about actually paying to listen to the likes of Howard Stern does absolutely nothing for us. :rolleyes:

    In the meantime, I get to enjoy a great fall week here with temps forecast to reach between the low to high 80's all week. It's been a nice fall so far, the A/C hasn't kicked on for almost a week now, and it's still nice enough not to turn the heat on either. :thumb: :thumb:

    Good news then, enjoy your car.

    I expect they have more than Howard. I heard he isnt working out as they had hoped.

    WE have a week of 70* weather forcast for west central W Va all week.

    Yeah, election day, the ads and those phone calls have got to go. I've hung up on so many prominent politicians the past few weeks, I'd be upset if I were them, except that they were all recordings. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Vote today? Not us, we mailed in our ballots weeks ago. Arizona has the longest ballot in the nation today. Four pages long, 17 referendums to decide on (it was difficult to choose between the no-smoking ban backed by the tobacco companies or the one backed by all the leading health organizations) :D as well as whether to keep some 50 judges on the bench that I know nothing about.

    Nice day forecast, it could get into the low 90's...:thumb:

    NO more adds now, the poles close here 90 minutes.

    I made a point not to watch TV all day but cheaned and test the 1/2 dozen ho engines I have bought over the last 3 months.

    I could not find and vasoline to lube with. Vicks works as well but the aroma mixed with the smell of paint, grime and nail polish remover is something else.

    It is damp and chilli but good enough weather to go vote.

    I wish there was some one worthy of a vote one our ballot.

    Morning. Still runny nose and now cough. Just took some strong cough meds. Will be high soon. Going to sit in recliner and snooze all day. Over 2 inches of rain and more coming. Elections on local level went great. All of my buddies got re-elected or elected. Have a great day.

    The boys [Peek 16+ and Lab 7] want to get up, it is 4:30 or 5 AM. announce1 :curse: Then they go back to sleep and don't get up until late morning. Hey, get up when your Mommy gets up to go to work and let me sleep. :cry:
    Sun is out and suppose to warm right up. Still got this bad cold so a hot bowl of grits and some coffee will be good. Have a good one.
