Mornin' Gents.  45* and foggy in north Texas.  Heading to 61*.  I'll have a dozen 11 year-old girls at the house tonight for my daughter's birthday party.  At least only one or two are spending the night.  Me and Mrs. DCamm are making them stay outside the whole time. Big Grin

Well that might save you from a sexual harassment charge in 30 years from now.

I rarely go upstairs when my daughters have friends overnight.

Overcast and in the low 40s here. Most the leaves have left, and coats or jackets are required, so yeah, fall is here.

The back yard bunnies have disappeared, and the dogs have had REAL BAD gas, but not deer gas, so I have my suspicions.

I came in 5th in my clubs practical pistol match and 7th over all, so I had a good match. This was our 3rd match for the new season, and I have come in 5th in all 3 matches. Hope I can keep this up.

Mornin' Gents.  About 50* here.  Supposed to be 50s and 70s for the foreseeable future, with a couple of high 40s sprinkled in, and maybe an 80 or two.  Not too bad.

Proof that is all about the shooter and not the weapon.  Great job.

Mornin’ all, 38* now had snow flurries this morning all gone now.

Saw lots of deer Saturday & Sunday but nothing to pull the trigger on yet. Season is about half over so as it goes on the smaller bucks will be in trouble. It’s always been meat over racks for me. Saw 5 different bucks over the weekend with one being a shooter. He didn’t stay long enough for a shot.

Partly cloudy, and in the 40s.

Scrummy, I'm from Kentucky with some ties to Tennessee. The land of Daniel Boone, and Davie Crocket. However, a bunch of my family did wind up in Texas, but we try not to claim them.

Scrummy, you have pictures of the construction?

Yes indeed, was built in the 1930s and seems a lot of the original plumbing was left in place...

Green granite rather than marble sir, but 30mm thick

I had a house that was built around 1877. It still had piping for gas lighting in places, as well as some original wiring when electricity was installed. Not to mention the addition that was made to the back of the house, who knows when, and it was in a historic district. Getting work done on that house was a real pain in the wazoo.

I was glad to sell that place. I still have nightmares that I still live there.

Yeah amazing what you find...

Back when the place was built it had communal heating as did lots of blocks but apparently there was a communal cooling system as well that pumped freon pipes to ice boxes in people's individual flats... presumably this was before self contained fridges were available...?

Amazing the stuff you learn

Scrummy

Cloudy, damp, and in the 30s.

Mrs. BF found a deer leg in the front yard this AM. I said that explains Trina's panting all night. Deer farts to follow.
Mrs. BF said Punkin (our Pom) acted like she had just found the crown jewels and didn't want to give them up.
Mrs. BF put the leg in the garbage, but I told her the dogs would just go get another one.
The stench, I mean the story continues.

Be interesting to know who the communal heating worked. Who controlled the thermostat?

The lady in the first floor apartment of my old building controlled the thermostat for the first two floors. She was a big woman and liked it cool. Every fall, I'd have to tell her to turn the heat on.

I think in most schemes they just run it. Our Development is 86 flats for example
