    Yeah, finally got some moisture up here! It is really good to see,...I bucket-watered my 'pasture evergreens' about a week ago because it was getting so dry.
    Lots of fall color this year, more than I remember. Leaves are hitting the ground, now, though. Looks like we're forecast to have some nice weather for about a week, and then it's to cool off a little.
    My garage has never been heated, but my body won't take working out there in the cold anymore, either. I've used a portable propane bottle and IR heater the last few years,...it will add about ten degrees to my two-car garage in about 1/2 hour. Takes off the chill, anyway,...Best of luck with making a choice for your garage, Jerry.
    Good to see that you guys are still alive! Hope you're all doing well, also. Howdy, nut!

    Fall colors were great this year! Helps not having a hard freeze as we ease into Fall. Looks like another warm/dry trend heading our way though.

    Not as pretty as TFFs' pics, but here's some from our pasture,...Keith will remember that currant I had asked him about, long ago: IMG_7245 (Large).jpeg
    and this is our maple:

    I'm not sure that I recall seeing THIS much color before,...! Nice, just before winter, huh?

    Stored, and under it's cover again, now.
    Just ordered rear fender skins for my '68 Mustang today,...and a fuel pump for my '72 Superbeetle! There's upholstery coming for my F-100 in January, and I'm waiting to hear about new seals for my RX-7s' brake master,...
    Always keeping busy here!

    You're killing me, man...
    SO want to drive mine.
    At least it's steerable now.

    Don't let the pedals fool you - there are no brakes and no clutch.

    (sorry, Jerry)
    Yeah, and I want to drive your car that much, too!
    Ah, but you've got things this far,...and beautifully, I might add. It's on its' own four wheels and ya got suspension and steering! Brakes and clutch will come,..."nothing in life comes easy" - or fast, huh?! Took me 21 years to finally be able to drive my Fiat Spider,...
    Keep up the great work!
    Air Force overflew the house today, probably flying Ft Collins to Greeley - I assume doing airshows for vets' day. Four fighters in loose formation,...haven't heard THAT sound since the Navy!
