    We had a storm come through last night with some pretty strong gusts of wind. It gave me something to do today as if I didn't already have enough on my plate. :(

    This is at the bar. The shelter was for covering the wood and the boiler when I used to heat with wood.

    I sat out in the shop with the door open, I love a good thunderstorm. Hail and high winds missed us.

    Kaepaernik taking a knee doesn't seem like such a bad protest, does it now?

    I was shooting my bow about half an hour ago and when I was at full draw and just about to squeeze my release, a damn deer strolled out from behind the bushes and stopped directly in front of my target. Perfect broadside at 28-29 yds and literally had its heart positioned 18 inches in front of the spot where I had just put an arrow not 20 seconds earlier.

    I had him/her dead to rights at full draw and it took every last bit of self restraint I had not to put a field point right through it’s vitals.

    This is a few seconds later after it realized it probably should get outta dodge.

    Eh it would have if he and his girlfriend didn't call everyone that offered him a job racist and then cry about not getting hired.

    What’s the deal with all the people posting these empty black screenshots on social media? Just restarted my modem, router, and phone because I thought the internet was messed up and photos wouldn’t load.

    Blm stuff. It's just the next big fb trend to show you care about whatever cause.

    According to the structural reference tables that 2x8 needs to be doubled up for that application and, depending on the jurisdiction, may require hurricane clips to meet allowable uplift criteria.

    Ahhh.... so I guess it’s safe to assume that posting a screenshot of a blank white screen would probably get me into FB trouble?

    I actually don’t have many of my real friends as social media friends. I mainly use it so I can keep track of people from college and high school. Helps avoid situations where I see somebody for the first time in a decade or so and notice they’re wearing a wedding ring so I tell them congratulations on getting engaged but then learn that the wedding was actually like 10 years ago, they’ve got 8 kids, and the only reason she is wearing the ring is because her divorce attorney said it’s better for her case if she keeps it on. (that actually happened to me, at Walmart of all places, and is what convinced me I ought to reactivate my social media accounts)
