    ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!!! 61

    7:30 AM breakfast in the park across the street. Legislators [to nice ladies, wife says one is my girlfriend [​IMG] and she's joking.
    Found three BIG fireant nests along sidewalk on park side. Checked the yard here and none so far. Maybe the grandulars I broadcast this spring is working. Lowes screwed up on that one last fall. $6 per bag and Walmart was selling it on sale for $20 per bag. I stocked up. It is some kind of preventive.
    Grass to mow for a change. We had 3 tenths of rain last night late. Squash and cucumbers are producing. Tomatoes growing. Train time too. Got to pack for EARLY flight to Phoenix tomorrow [glad I got BIG seats].

    A lot of good men died today in WWII.
    Later.

    You're in for a nice day tomorrow. Temps expected in the mid to upper 90's through the weekend. A big difference from yesterday which was 108. I'm looking forward to meeting with you tomorrow.

    Hey 0-4-0 Steamer,
    I can't believe it, the Ducks, wow. Where are you located? I only ask because I work and live in the City of Anaheim, and there was no mention in any of the "work propanganda" of the play offs this week.
    And I'm not really a hockey fan:eek:, but don't hold that against me. sign1

    Well, was fortunate enough to spend a bit of time with Chief Eagles yesterday. As he said, he was coming to Mesa for the grand opening of a Bass Pro Shop, and I'd never let the opportunity to meet a fellow Gauger get by me. We didn't spend much time since he was "on the job" and there were tons of people there. Boy, what a place, we were looking at shotguns, and saw one there with a $97,000 price tag hanging off it. I might have been interested in it except it was a 20 ga and I shoot 12 ga target. :rolleyes: :rolleyes::rolleyes: yeah, right..:mrgreen: Sheesh, would someone actually go shoot a gun worth almost $100 grand???? :eek:

    Anyway, thanks Chief for letting me know you were in town and it was great meeting with you. :thumb: :thumb:
