Been almost nine years...

...since Bill and Porter visited TFL.  It was really nice to see them again.  Bill is sporting his vintage #001 hand made TFL shirt from the numbered limited edition I did 8 years ago (he must have been keeping it in a vault).  I still have the stencils I used for the edition.  Ben was more than happy to do a selfie.  69,80,47,0,C

non lethal force...

Javier and family (4 javelina in total) have become a bit of a problem coming in at all times during the day and constantly running the bunnies and Ben off their feed.  Of course it is entirely my own fault for feeding them in the first place - but I am extending efforts to dissuade them from visiting.  I am keeping the feed locked up tight now and Javier can no longer get into Ben's pen and I'm no longer leaving water out overnight.  I am changing up the feeding schedule for the rabbits and fending off the piggies with an air soft gun when they do come in.  It might be a losing battle but perhaps they will decide to look for food and water elsewhere if I make it more of a problem for them here with nothing to partake of other than little plastic pellets at 300 fps.  78,87,50,0,W

Pepino test...

Started getting a little warm inside today so I figured that was a sign to fire up Pepino for a shake down test.  Had a high of 85° outside today.  I need to change out the pad and clean it up a bit but it still does the job chilling down the outside ambient air.  76,85,55,0,B,

a little welding...

Welded up a solar panel rack for the new owner of my old water tank.

Is there PTSD in Heaven?

Can heaven be a traumatic experience?  Will we remember all the pain of earthly life?  Will we mourn the fact that some friends and loved ones did not make the grade?
Isaiah 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

monkey addiction

Somehow, I came across ventriloquist Nina Conti on YouTube.  Next thing you know I find 5 similar monkey puppets on ebay (vintage 1994 Hosung plush stuffed chimpanzee monkey hand puppets) and buy them cheap.  Apparently there isn't much demand for them...other than me.  Not sure what I was thinking other than I seem to strongly identify with the demeanor of her puppet...speaking his mind much like the way I do when I come across utter nonsense on Facebook.  I often time find myself saying the things that one would ordinarily keep to themselves in polite conversation - especially when people are being so utterly stupid (oops...did I just type that out loud?).  Until I can come up with a proper use for them, you will find my monkeys trying to fend off the javelina during my nightly live streams of the bunnies having dinner.   50,60,46,0,B

stuck buckets

Part of the clean"o"thon out here is separating planters that have been stacked and stuck together for years.  Find out how I unstuck them in the next friday night film.  69,79,44,0,B

know when to fold 'em...

I had a conversation today with a friend who got roped into helping someone who has a certain reputation and has found themselves in a vulnerable circumstance because of a recent injury.  I warned the friend that nothing good will come out of helping this particular individual who has, let's just say, a history for being dangerously unstable, unpredictable, and particularly and irrationally vengeful.  This brings to mind the dilemma of ...aren't we commanded by God to "love thy neighbor"?  But does God not also command us to avoid evil and those who have become deeply entrenched in Satan's grasp? 
1 Corintians 5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

Proverbs 4:14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.  15 Avoid it, pass not by it, 
turn from it, and pass away.  16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, 
unless they cause some to fall.  17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

cracks in the windshield...

Staging has begun...looks like the county is prepping to resurface Hwy 118 again this summer.  They have been doing this every 4 years since I have been here.  58,78,40,0,B
