Hottest day of the year around here...High 80's.....Fourth of July is a big blast as we all congregate in a field and give thanks that we live in this GREAT country.....Lots of children....families....old young.....Tons of fireworks....A real cross cut of America....How lucky we all are....Everybody brings something.....It's like those old Church Suppers....Man!....The food is great....The beer ice cold.....Happy birthday America....TM

Didn't get out of the 60's yesterday and 70's for a while....Hottest part of summer seems to be pretty cool....Might have to think about oiling my leathers.....thinking is good.....But need to do lawn thingers and hope to get my Jeep back for hauling the 2 plus cords that are split and ready down in the field....Get the winch on the tractor and pull out some spring cuttings....Drag them out and hope Punk delivers 5-6 cords for Son in Law and me....Then get a couple of split and delivered cords and I will be for the first time ready for two winters....Thinking I need the Jeep to be in good shape for a drive out West....Will see!

Have had a couple of frosts and the leaves are turning....Within a week the Highlands are gonna be there in Red Orange Yellow and Green....Man up around here Hardwood color is beyond belief....Ron put up a photo of Teleking skiing in about half an inch amongst leaves on a misty knob up in the Kingdom.....That was in 2000 and we repeated it the next year on the same date....Should make that into a Poster....but alas that would be work!!!!! Carrying a heavy bulky camera is fun....doing electronic stuff is not....Probably have some of those pictures in some forgotten strand here....Looking for it would be like work......TM

Red maples are flaming here in ADKs. Plan is to put the woodstove in the new cabin this week....about time. Both new and old camps will be here this winter, so will have lots of beds. Hope to have a winter snow party in early March. Got wood!

Figure Telecamp on Little Mountain will be deconstructed this week....Twice I will have done that....BOOTS wants a camp up there.....Probably doesn't want us in his "Horse Barn"! Telekid wants to up grade...... a lot.....Will see....Will also get 20-30 tarp.....cause it's October and Nature doesn't wait.....Which reminds me....Out in Ron Land...(RavenTele).....40 plus inches in September??????? Still we had the best November in memory last year....Fingers crossed....TM
