Oh, happy day! Kubota got his Michigan's Chauffeur's license today.
That opens up a lot of jobs for him.
I can hear what some of you are thinking "He should have had that three years ago."
But I know that "over-planning" is one of my weaknesses. This is Kubota's journey. He has to own it.
I offered to buy him a Wendy's Frosty to celebrate but he wanted to get home. He had jobs to apply for.
HFA will run until at least October 2. In a perfect world, I will have enough creative juices seeping up to keep it going until election day.
I appreciate the fact that the readers are involved enough, and thinking enough to make comments.
2-Stroke out-board motors
I found a deal on a Johnson, 2-stroke 9.5hp motor. While I don't NEED an outboard motor, there are several family members who have boats that would benefit from one.
Most 9.5hp motors are 15hp motors that have been detuned or throttled to meet the "less than 10hp" requirement on many lakes. The only way to kill one is to run straight gas in them.
I am sleeping on the deal. Maybe sanity will strike and I won't spend the money.
I cannot state with 100% certainty that Zeus has mange.
The lesions seem self-limiting to where he was cut with some barbed wire six years ago. It shows up when it is humid and seems to respond to "mange" medicine.
The mites that cause mange are part of the natural microflora/fauna of a dog's coat. Mange occurs when something tips out-of-balance.
Dogs that are in-bred are more susceptible to mange so there is probably a genetic component. Even though Zeus has wandered in-and-out of the condition several times over the years, Herc (the senior partner) never had it.
My driveway is lined with pecan trees.
"What? Pecan trees don't grow in Michigan." you say
Pecan trees are not native to Michigan but they grow just fine. They are native along the Mississippi river as far north as southern Wisconsin.
Many years I am just a bit shy of heat-units to fill the nuts. Some years they do fill. At least, they fill enough to germinate and produce viable seedlings.
Tonight is a nice, calm evening. I am sitting in front of the garage waiting for the branches to start moving.
#8 shot is considered by many to be a bit light for squirrels but I think it is great for Red Squirrels.
