Quoting TomballTXPride:Love the Crimson Pygmy Barberry, RTLSNK! Is that a native grower or is that a transplant from a local nursery?I'd like to furnish the plantation with some of those along with a couple Cherrybark Oaks and a couple Siouxland Cottonless Cottonwoods.
Quoting goofyrider:Suns up, the 13 # 's of Boston Butt are on the weber, the apple wood is smokin. and the water bath is streaming.. Can't have too much pre op intel. Think they would have checklist RTL. Assume your on ice. One year ago SW had a series of catheters shoved up her right arm in a convenient path when the widow maker was repaired. Took about 6-8 weeks for the pain to be tolerable. Lots of ice and rest and elevation did the trick.
Quoting RobDaHood:I seem to recall that every time RTLSNK plants something that is supposed to be a dwarf or pygmy variety that it grows into a monster that he then has to spend 3 days attacking.I'm sure that won't be the case with the purple thingy...:o)
Quoting Skyepony:SNK~ If I don't get a freeze this year I'll have to attack the passionfruit or it will take the house. I've always been bad for planting things that get out of control.
Quoting RobDaHood:Have had the WV Loop up for the last 3 hours.If Pottery isn't getting wet today, there is no hope.Hey RTLHey Skye!Outside watching the wildlife.Hawk got chased out of trees by squirrels twice.Will has not put in his appearance yet.
Quoting pottery:WAH !!Was out since 3:00pm, and everywhere we went we saw lightening down this way.Just got home to find 3" in the gauge! Leaves and small branches everywhere and my workshop is wet, so it must have blown around a bit too.Going to check the main blog to see what's what, what ?
Quoting RTLSNK:I remember you saying that matter of fact.Perhaps you should trim the sails and batten down the hatches.Oh, and check the Rum supplies, that's important! :)Stay safe my friend, stay safe!
Quoting RTLSNK:I'm not sure I understand where these 12 sheets are.Are they on the floor of your work shop stacked on top of each other?If so, heavy weights of some kind would keep them from flying about.If not, in high winds they would become 18 ft long Ginzu blades.Strapping them all together would add to the weight of the bundle also.Anchored to a large tree might be an idea.Putting the front wheels of your truck on them might help.What are they doing in your workshop in the first place?Normally loose items are secured before the storm hits aren't they?More information is needed my good man! :)
Quoting RTLSNK:Whats so funny is when the nursery says the plant you are buying is called a "Giant", you just naturally figure its a really big grower.When they tell you its a "Pigmy" or a "Dwarf" plant you figure its a little plant.So she puts the Giants in the back of the garden and the little ones in the front. At the end of the summer some of the little ones turn out to be Giants and some of the Giants turn out to be little. Then I have to dig them both up and switch places. :)
Quoting theshepherd:"How much wind do you think it will take to lift 12 sheets of corrugated zinc, 18' long and 40" wide, that are just resting on some laths?"90 degrees plus a few break-aways on the Spanish Moss Scale?
Quoting RobDaHood:That's about as good an answer as any!(note to self:send screws to Trinidad before sending rain)
Quoting RobDaHood:Hey Pottery!Thanks for checking in.Yes, we should commission a study on the proper arrangement of the shed. This will be followed by a location study. Followed by an impact study. Then we must go back to the beginning and adjust for all possible ramifications and study everything again.This could possibly end up on Cap'n Alex's todo list!
Quoting pottery:Now there's a Grand Idea !Procrastination is one of my Most Accomplished Traits.Alex is coming for lunch tomorrow (along with 10 or so other people) as we are having a bit of a party to welcome the Visitors.The Visitors include Nancy, who I have to go to the airport in a while to meet.She will be here for a week, doing Legal stuff and whatnot.I am LONGING to see her and to seize her in a hug of long duration. Last laid my eyes on her at Christmas.
Quoting RTLSNK:HEY - WAKE UP YOU SLACKERS - GOOD MORNING POTTERYoops, forgot that it was Sunday, Rob likes to sleep in.snakeyman quietly sneaks back out. :)Rob will see Pottery's comment first. heh heh heh
Quoting RobDaHood:Did I say I was sleeping late?I think I said getting out of bed late.There is a difference you know.Goes a long way towards insuring domestic tranquility and whatnot. That's a concept that goes back all the way to the constitution, so I take the duty seriously!Remember, those guys didn't have electricity, 24 hour TV, or a whole lot of other things we have to occupy us today.What do you think they were doing on weekend mornings?Why do you think they were so upset with British soldiers knocking on their doors in the wee hours?Actually, I think if we all didn't go to work before 10 am, and really applied ourselves, the world would be a much happier place with a lot more smiling faces.Nuff said!
Quoting RobDaHood:Okay, I'll start off with the first laugh of the day.Woke up at 2 am. Shoulders were hurting a little, elbows, wrists, fingers, felt stiff and and had a bit of a headache.Got up and walked around the house a bit to loosen up. Got a big glass of water and went back to bed. Was sitting there drinking the water and thought to myself, "you know, I'm getting too old for this stuff".Then it occurred to me that "this stuff" was sleeping!Almost spewed water all over the room.Too old for sleeping is pretty bad!em>
Quoting RTLSNK:You're never too old for sleeping really,you do have to get some sleep every day,it just begins to occur to you one day,that you're using up what little time you have left,doing absolutely nothing worth while! :)heh heh heh
Quoting RobDaHood:Now that sounds like a very good idea!
