92° F | 72° F I found a laborer that actually showed back up on the next day so work has been a little easier the past few days. Normally I work alone but once in awhile I have something a machine won’t do.



TOTD: “There is nothing new under the sun” Every question has been asked and everything has been done.
If you could retire tomorrow, what would you do to fill the time?

It was hot for us yesterday. I was working outside yesterday afternoon and I thought, "Geez, it's hot". This hardly ever happens to me and then I found out it was 92 F with 75% humidity. :eek: It will be much more normal today with showers on and off.

TOTD: I would work on several massive yard projects. I'd replace all the carpet in my living room and bedroom with wood (DIY). I'd sell off those Rangers and get into mules. I'd go fishing every day I felt like it. I'd work with the BFF on a business project we've been formulating. In the winter, I'd go skiing every day I felt like it. I would also read through the Great Books Program and try to see if there is a decent distance learning degree program in Classics somewhere.

I would also work in Mr. Snaps' business to free him up for the much more exciting scouting and auction end of things. :)

Fishing, hunting, mud bogging, lounging.

I would have NO trouble filling the time. Aside from my own projects, like the knitting I enjoy, I'd do some volunteer work, such as being a docent at a museum or some such place, depending on where we live in retirement. We're planning lots of travel.

I think I will still do heavy equipment work, just a little less of it.

Sunnier and hotter than yesterday. 106º F, no wind to speak of.

TOTD: I would shoot and reload full time. I would spend the winter desert shooting, and open ranges, and the summer at the indoor ranges.

I reload a little while every evening as it is, I need to order some more brass.

I'm a little different. I reload in very large, planned batches. I usually do a couple thousand of each caliber I reload for (9mm, .45 ACP, .40 S&W, .223 Rem) in one go, and then play with that while stocking up on components for another go.

My biggest problems have been getting a hold of primers in quantity. However, Dillon Precision is located in Scottsdale, AZ, and they carry reasonably priced components in bulk that don't need to be shipped, and I have a hookup at the Scottsdale Gun Club, that lets me collect the brass after gun rental shoots so I know it's all once fired. (I love it when they rent out the M249 SAW, I can get a LOT of .223 brass after they rent that to someone.)

What kind of brass are you looking for? PM me, and I'll see how much of it I have in the once fired category.

About 90 here in Middle Tennessee a little cloudy.

If I could retire today, I would go fishing all summer, Hunting all winter, but while not hunting or fishing I'd sit on the front porch in my underwear holding a beer yelling at the kids in the neighborhood. :D

Um....kinda sounds like what you're doing now. ;)

I'd put myself on ebay as a traveling companion.
Have bags will travel.
