Missed by THAT much…



I’m still here.

Posted by redneckokie1 @ 21:37 on September 3, 2016  

A little earth movement or wind ain’t nothing to get concerns about. Those shallow roots ain’t no problem. Just cut up the firewood and hook a tractor up to the stump. No need for any serious noise.


about the grandkids thing; I haven’t introduced them to any of the real fun things in life yet. We are at the worm drowning thing now. When they get about 14 years old, we start noodling, rattlesnake gathering, hog hunting and the like. They are sitting in deer stands now but no confiirmed kills yet.

That was great. Another funny thing about first timers is they want to sit in front. They don’t realize they will get the brunt of the water when going down those rapids and it’s not warm water. Now their putting camera up along the river at turbulent places and you can see the expression on their faces when it hits them.

Maya and Treefrog…so glad you both escaped the fury of the storms!

Tree Frog

Posted by goldielocks @ 14:04 on September 3, 2016  

Glad non of those trees hit the house or made a widow out of someone. I had a tree frog it my back yard one.  I couldn’t sleep with that dang ribit ribit going on all the time. I asked my son to come over to find the darn thing and wondered when I saw it how such a little frog could be so loud. I decided to let him go. Kinda regretted it. Even one of the neighbors yelled stf up. I think the cats scared it off. It’s surprising there are any trees left in the south. Too bad they can’t put them back. Here during the drought those who don’t water the trees well enough and roots start to surface plus root them deep are prime targets of toppling over when a storm rolls in and aren’t even hurricane winds.

those trees down are at my kids’ places.  nothing down here at treefrog manor too big to pick up with one hand.  here’s a pic of my son dealing with his oak tree that fell out into the street.  (away from buildings and cars, thank god)

Lol I know what you mean. I had something similarly with my daughter in law but instead she went along to learn. She was subconsciously putting fear in my grandson for things she didn’t consider safe. She never told anyone she couldn’t swim but sensed it. The brave girl went white water rafting with my son and his friends with no life jackets and couldn’t swim. They got a bit wild and someone put a hole in the raft she said. Now she can swim. She learned when I taught the grandson. The rest was my youngest daughter who must of been a seal in her last life. Even  got him to go on those crazy water rides. I didn’t worry about him because if she can put a 70 pound dog under her neck by swimming under it and swim her in while calling it a pain in the neck in a cold river with strong currents she could handle a little guy.

As far as turning them into another RNO that may be taking it a little too far to the extremes lol

treefrog @ 12:43 Dont Know How Close Your Neighbors Live,

Posted by Farmboy @ 13:03 on September 3, 2016  

but Im pretty sure RNO could make quik work removing that root ball once you get the tree cut up into firewood. You might want to pick up a set of ear plugs first though. Be sure and video tape it !

Glad you are ok. Best, Farmboy

goldielocks @ 20:12 Sounds Like You Got The Grand-parenting Thing Down.

Posted by Farmboy @ 12:55 on September 3, 2016  

All I can say it is a good thing I took my two girls fishing, camping, scuba diving, hunting, mountain trail hiking, etc. So when I ‘borrow’ the grandkids and return them home a little wet, or muddy, or with a few scratches, they just roll their eyes and go, ” Oh dad….” Well, one daughter did freak out a bit when I returned my Grandson with some blood on his shirt and his arms and hands bleeding. But I figured that is just part of appreciating that Blackberry Cobbler and jam all the more when you have a little ‘skin’ in the game. Nothing a bandaid and some Neosporin cant fix.  🙂

Now my son and his wife is a different story. My son had the same benefits as my daughters with all the adventures, but his wife, not so much. She has never been fishing, white water rafting, hiking, or played a game of touch football. She is a little more strict when I take her son out for a few hours. You wont believe the instruction manual she hands me, which pretty much insures we wont have any real fun, even down to the meals. I may take them to McDonald’s, but they have to eat apple slices instead of french fries. Whaaaatttt?? That is so UnAmerican, soooo Wrong ! They can only drink water or juice, no cokes, no coffee ! And there is this ceremony when I return em. There is a clothing check for mud, ketchup, rips, tears, and to see if they still have both socks on and shoes on the right feet. Then there is this physical inspection for bruises, scrapes, scratches, grass stains, dirt, missing teeth, she even looks in their ears.Now the way I figure it, they were breathing when I got em, and they are still breathing and we made no trips to the ER while out and about. Figure that is good enough. I did get the motherly evil eye once when a button was missing off a shirt. She did not seem satisfied in the least with my explanation that   missing button probably saved his life when it got caught in one of the finger holds on the rock climbing wall. And my poor son who understands these things, he just hides in the corner while the inspection goes on. So no help there. And he thinks it a bad idea if I ask his wife if the kids have accidental death insurance. So I have not mentioned it to her. I did tell her, trying to comfort and ease her mind, that I had full liability insurance on my truck so if I ever took them ‘mudding’ and something happened, like say, I rolled the truck, any subsequent injuries they suffer would be covered, up to a million dollars.

Well, I have a few things to get done before game time so better get with it. Hope you have a great day ! Oh, one more thing about Grandkids and their parents I have learned. Probably not a good idea to be encouraging the grand kids on future employment opportunities such as becoming ‘Storm Chasers’. That one didnt go over very well. Some folks just dont have no sense of fun or adventure. I mean, look at RNO, he turned out ok. sorta. kinda. 🙂

Hurricane Watch Cancelled

LESTER is weakening and wind shear is toppling it.  We may get some crappy weather from the southerly inflows yet, maybe even thundershowers this evening as LESTER exits… stage left.  Storm Surf’s UP!  East and North shores.  Pretty ragged… not good surfing.

What’s Shakin’, RNO?  Three more 3-magnitude aftershocks in the last hour.  You taking lessons from the Mauna Loa Hula?

TIP: Folks in Hilo put elastic bungee straps around their cupboard knobs to keep stuff from falling out when the mountain ‘dances’.

Farmboy made me hungry.  Now I want Pizza for breakfast.

Checklist For Saturday College Football

Posted by Farmboy @ 12:16 on September 3, 2016  

First things first:

  • Treefrog and family doing ok. Check
  • Maya still ok. Check
  • RNO still shaken, but not stirred. Seriously RNO, you need to cut back on the amount of ‘bait’ you are using. Even the goats seem bewildered.
  • Newtogold and other folks up on the east coast getting soaked a little ?
  • Called in my Man Lover’s Meat Extra Cheese Extra Olives,  Pizza order. ( Dont look Goldi ! I did eat some Blackberry Yogurt this morning. )
  • FBI says Hillary clicked on ‘porn site’ that was cause of breech of her server. I swear, you cant write this into a Hollywood movie script, they would reject it as not plausible.
  • Buygold, that better be a bug flying in front and within inches of the camera lense , OR…???
  • Hope everyone can relax, and enjoy this saturday it has been a long week.
  • Still looking at Friday’s Silver chart and going “Wow !” Good week for the bugs.

Glad you made it through successfully and with little damage. Hope we don’t have anymore for another 11 years !

post storm report

Posted by treefrog @ 11:06 on September 3, 2016  

all is well. it wasn’t really bad. pretty mild until about 23:30 thursday when i lost power (and subsequently, phone line). there was a period of about a half hour just after midnight when we got winds maybe 40-50 mph. a spiral band with embedded thunderstorms/mini tornadoes? no significant damage to anything at treefrog manor. a few small branches down, nothing that would take two hands to pick up. i got off easy. my son lost a BIG oak at his place in tallahassee, but he got lucky – it fell away from his buildings and into the street. my daughter has leaves and twigs strewn all over. all in all, we got through it well.
the general area? took some hits, but it wasn’t a killer storm. lots of trees and branches down. power lines down with the trees – some streets blocked. i drove around yesterday and didn’t see much building damage. east and central tallahassee hit harder than the west side. that spiral band?
east of here? perry? cross city? cedar key? they got harder hit.
got power back on friday evening. the milk in the fridge wasn’t spoiled. the phone line didn’t come back on ’till this morning.

Several of my friends on the Big Island have goats.  If one has ‘wild land’ out there, goats are the best way to keep the jungle at bay.
