    That would be by downshifting once. ;)

    I already have my motorcycle license. I do know how to get it into first, second, etc. and how to get it into neutral. ;)

    Evening @Fort
    How are you? Congrats on the bike. Sorry about the rash.
    Not ignoring everyone. Calving problems I had to take care of.

    I am sorry about the calving problems.

    I should already be asleep but I wanted to catch up on the forum before I got even further behind. ;)

    It’s all good. That’s why we watch first time moms so close. So we can help before it’s too late.

    I am off to try to sleep. It was good to talk to you @Double R and hopefully I will "see" everyone else around in the next few days.

    Goodnight everyone. :)

    I've used the shot shells with 9mm and .45 without any ricochet problems. Used on gravel, dirt, rock, and water.

    The oil from poison oak, ivy, etc. is active for up to 7 years! My wife is highly allergic to it. I'm lucky in it's never bothered me.

    Good luck and hope all goes well for y'all!

    So far the repaint is fine and I've found other spots that flaked off when rubbed but none that tore off as sheets. No idea what was on the old paint that caused it but apparently removing as much of the paint as possible and washing it with acetone made it better. Still maintain a paint advertised as self priming and not requiring prep shouldn't peal like that on a bedroom wall. I could see it if it was a entry wall where people were leaving oily hand prints or lots of dirt but it wasn't. So I'll know better than to buy Bahr paints next time. The olympic paint is thin and needs multiple coats to cover but then it looks good, doesn't show rub and scuff marks the way the Bahr paint does and is half the price.

    Sounds like the new calf is in the good hands of "RR midwife". ;-) I'm hoping this will be an easy week where I can get away with just two days of work (Tuesday /Wednesday). If so I'll try to stay up late (past 8pm your time) Thursday or Friday to catch you online. :mugbump:

    Today is looking nice outside so far. Didn't see any Coyotes out this morning, or should I just say since I got my new 308 sited in I haven't seen ANY coyotes? I'll go clean up in a bit and then go work out at the gym. If the wind is reasonable I hope to chrono the 8 reloads I did so I can have two recipes for reloading 308 rounds.

    So before I go thought I'd share my fossil shelf I but up last night now that the painting is done. Horn Corals, Crinoidea and Fossil Fern leaves from 120 million years ago. This is how old geologist make themselves feel young. :LOL:;D:rolleyes::D
    Looks like I forgot this.... fossil shelf.jpg

    I've never seen so many Lady Bugs as we have had in past few years. Strange. They must really thrive on chem trails.

    I'm sitting here on pins and needles. My sister was admitted into the hospital last night with her stage 4 cancer coming to an end. At the same time my daughter is delivering a premie baby this morning via "c" section and may have complications. All I can go is say everything is in God's hands and wait for results.

    Glad to hear your daughter and Baby are happy and well Havasu. I hope the rest of the news is at least as good.

    I just need to say how loved I feel from y’all!
    I’ve had more people think of me and share cows to me in the last two months (since the birth of this great forum!) than I could have imagined! Y’all are the best! Thank you for thinking of me and thank you for sharing all the wonderful cows! I love them and I think others do too! :heart:
