Rainy.....

We've received over 1/2" of rain this week, most of it in nice, gentle showers. Makes me glad I was able to fertilize (good old "Weed-N-Feed" like Dad always used) the yard a few days before it started, and even got some grass seed properly sown in a couple of the Big Bare Spots alongside the garage. Still have about half the backyard to reseed after I went bonkers with the chemicals  the first year here -AND- didn't water enough.

Whacked the grass damn good, I did.....Reminds me of the "lawns" back in SoCal.

I wasn't used to being allowed to use so much water without risking bankruptcy and the Water Police (Lost Angeleez is NUTZ!), so I was being conservative with the water.

Didn't work and I burned out half the yard.....Le Sigh....

And swapped out my Sweet Little Wife's studded snows today for the wheels and tires that came on the car. It's a 2013 Hyundai Elantra, and the tires are just now down to the tread wear bars, and a couple of them are "chunking" in a very minor way, so looks like a trip down to Discount Tire is in the immediate future. The OEM tires are "Hankook", but I think we'll go with something better this time.

This lockdown BS is getting on my nerves. Not so much here, but in seeing what's happening in other states.

Kommiefornia is staying locked down for another THREE months! That's going to cause some permanent damage to the state's economy and make it even more a third-world shit hole than it already is.

It wouldn't surprise me if some of the blue states stay locked down until after the election, allowing "mail in" ballots and an astounding level of blatant voter fraud to occur.

And like some of the Interent memes are saying, why haven't we heard of massive die-offs in the homeless camps around the country?

Why are the politicians who forced this shutdown still drawing full pay and benefits?

And they took an extra vacation?

It's starting to look like time to water the Tree of Liberty again.....

  1. I am MORE than willing to water the tree of liberty.
    Primarily with the blood of tyrants.
    Who will lead the call to arms?

    1. I don't know, Ed, but I think once it gets called and starts happening it'll go full-hot real quick.

  2. Why are the politicians still drawing a paycheck and why are so many police and LEOs supporting unconstitutional actions, all against their solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic?

    Because they haven't started dieing in job-lots.

    And this is from me, Mr. "Just wait a while, things will be better."

    Seriously, like what Ed B said above.

    And that meme about politicians not being tarred and feathered in a while, and now it's time.

    Voting them out? As corrupt and getting more corrupt as the days grow longer voting system? Mail-in Votes, Picking up Votes, Illegal Voters.

    When is it time to start flinging lead?

    I'm not saying I'm ready, because that would trigger some filter out there from some monitoring agency. But....

    1. We can't use the "Soap Box" because the MSM controls it, and we can't use the "Ballot Box" because evil people will make sure it's stuffed full of fraudulent ballots....

      That leaves the "Cartridge Box", which is precisely why evil people have been working very hard to deny us our Second Amendment right.

      If the Demoncrats try and keep things shut down during the summer, I predict it will be a long, HOT summer.....

    1. Just going by the "Mother's Day Rule".

      Don't plant anything before Mother's Day, and take your snows off right after.

      If it snows too bad for her little Elantra to go out, we still have my Jeep with the Blizzaks on it.

  4. A lot of us have watering cans... long, black. Can't hold much water, but the delivery system takes care of that.

  5. "This lockdown BS is getting on my nerves." Right there with you, and while it's not so bad here, as with you, it is elsewhere. Enough BS. It'll be at an end soon enough, imo, because people just aren't dying. Thank God.

    Efficient bioweapon, eh?

    1. If they want to keep the major metros locked down, I can see it. But out here in Flyover Country...."Let My People GO!"....

  6. Don't disagree at all, and I'd look at Michelin. I've had good luck with them for tire life!

    1. Not sure what we'll put on it. Probably tires in the "$100 class".....

Keep it civil, please....
