Mazda came first. The overflow was rebadged as Ford .

A fair representation of my trucking past...

That would explain it. I was still living in the UK at the time, so the whole concept of "pickup" was a bit foreign anyway.

It's a darn pity that nobody makes a light duty truck anymore.

My uncle had a Toyota mini pickup. It was a great rural ride. By the time he needed a new one they didn't exist anymore.

I had a 91 Ranger, likely similar to the B-2000, it was a good ride though I spent a fair amount keeping the suspension in tune along with the front axle system. It made 235,000 miles before it cracked a ring and I decided I needed a cheaper on gas commuter as my 7 mile drive turned into a 32 mile drive to work.

Toyota Tacoma is smaller than its big brother the Tundra but still rides rough.

Yesterday I stopped by my sister and brother in laws house. Dropped off some hourduvers and some of his favorite IPA. (not my favorite)

When I came back closer to dinner time I tried one of those beers. Easy beer to nurse for a hour. It is very hoppy.

After dinner he broke out a bottle of some beer he recieved for Christmas.

https://www.shortsbrewing.com/beers/juicy-tree/

Spruce tree is part of the ingredients. My brother in law uncapped a bottle, filled some shot glasses and had us guys try it. I think I could chug bowel prep faster than this stuff. Since I wanted to stay legal, I sipped on three shot glasses of this stuff until the time I left for home. I'm not sure who finished the bottle or how many bottles are left from the six pack.

If you remember a while back his son miscommunicated with his deer processor so there was 100# of venison breakfast sausage in the freezer. The good news is they consumed about 50#. The bad news is when they left to go downstate for a multi day vacation, the freezer door wasn't fully closed. Brisket, walleye, and 50# of remaining sausage was ruined.

My bil has an ozone generator in the basement in his attempt to kill the death smell this fiasco left.

Shorts Brewing, Bellaire, MI has quite a following. Don't know about their fruity beers though. Seems to be a thing with a lot of the micro breweries.

Have seen them represented at some water events. Part of a No Water, No Beer campaign.

Be careful with those higher alcohol content craft beers. One of our contractors from werk is werking the chain gang for a few months. Had two craft beers at one of the local breweries awhile back and got stopped. Was right on the limit and it cost him.

Speaking of which, did you guys read/hear about the women who carried a gun into church and threatened to blow the place up? Congregation tackled her. That's how it's supposed to work. Gun turned out to be unloaded but still....

My favourite niece graduates HS in June. I've been invited to attend, what with being the favourite auntie and all. She is in Canada. My passport has expired. Better get crackin' on getting it renewed.
You need a passport now!? I thought it was still possible to get across with the "enhanced" ID; guess I'm out of touch (hard to imagine, I know).


You could come to NY and we could try to sneak you across on the Akwesasne Reservation.




On a related segue, heading back up from the DC area on the interstates today, it seemed like half of Ontario and a quarter of Quebec were also heading home. I hope they had their passports up to date.

Voodoo Lillie. Leaves come out the top and some sort of flower. Stinks.

Home. More feeder lanes cut at deep woods. Cut out from feeder to stand. Then sprayed "agent orange" on it and another shooting lane at a newer stand. Did not touch that shooting lane last year. "Agent orange" seems to kill it and not much come back. "Agent orange" is Glyphosphate [Gly Star Plus 41%]. Just call it that. Spraying about 1 1/3 recommended strength. "Burnt ground"

Showered and resting. Got early out again to WakeMed North. Doppler of aorta. Yes, just had ultra sound on same. All OK. Oh well. Dr. ordered. No food or drink after midnight. Again!!!!.

Late 70's, 80's and 90's, use to cross into Canada and back with no problem and never asked for ID. Was always harder to come home than to go over. But still OK. Oh well.

Thirsty so Diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale.

Garbage up to the road for pickup in the morning, yard mowed, cat boxes dealt with. Ate up the last of the crackers with peanut butter; simplest of snacks is mighty good. Just wish there were more crackers. Back to neck PT tomorrow. Neck and head MRI scheduled on May 1st, still waiting for the lower back set up.

Turkeys have been gobbling good here... but the dang new "employment situation" has me toeing the line and no hunting in the future.But I'm sure I'll find a moment to sneak away anyway!


I lied to you all about the Steel Challenge Results... looked at the wrong results chart on PractiscoreÖ I was actually 3rd and 5th. Oops.


Meeting at LGC was at 6, so I went at 5 and did some prone and standing practice with the Anschutz MPR and H&R M12. Perhaps I can duplicate my results in the club match on Thursday. Perhaps not.

After the committee meeting, discovered I had tossed my coat (with car keys) into the car and locked it up. Fortunately a spare set was at home, so NBD.

Wife and I stayed home for Easter. We're not traveling with the aged little doggie these days. So we colored a couple dozen eggs and I hid them (errr, I mean the Easter Bunny hid them) for her to find. To date, we've eaten 1.5 dozen between us in the last two days. Boiled eggs, deviled Eggs, creamed eggs....
