With what is going on nothing except I tried to find my glasses but the Detector doesn't work on Titanium~! Where have you been?
I took a spell from social media and the media of all types. Was mostly going fishing and detecting. Never tried to see what mine does on titanium. Some metals though are wierd.
I detected a small sounding thing the other day and had trouble getting it in the dugout dirt. Signal get vanishing. Finally got it, about the size of half a pea, but even on the coil itself it was weak and a halfhearted response. For a comparison, a bit of gold the size of a pinhead would have sounded 10 times better. Im not sure what it was but just know it was metal after I hammered it with the pick head on a lump of quartz.
Has been great getting out though to places I hadn't been to in yrs.

*seems to fade in out of thin air, setting on a collapsible stool on the back porch ... enjoys some vaping, listens to night sounds and feels the air, takes a deep breath and keeps vaping a while ... *

Makes me want to get the hubbs to build a fire that we can sit beside after it gets dark tonight. He does that sometimes - I figured it was a guy thing, but suddenly....

Good morning, everybody. Steve, I hope Mom is getting better. It is so tough trying to live a life, with all that entails under normal circumstances, and take care of an aging parent at the same time. I think anyone who has done it can sympathize.

Nothing nicer than a fire at night sitting on the back patio.

First time on this thread. Just chillin and enjoying the clean fresh air (had a nasty summer here in CA... lots of smoke from the fires then crazy wind and dust storms) Finally got a hard rain and the air is clear, beautiful fluffy clouds and hangin on the back porch (we have a beautiful huge back yard) Drinking cheap beer and vaping DIY juices.

Hey guys. I’m a bit sick so I’m dropping below radar for a while. I think it’s my usual sinus infection. I’ll catch up with you when I get feeling better.

Feel Better buddy~! I supposedly was exposed to Covid-19 and just have a little sore throat like normal from Seasonal Allergies. Did get doused with dust and pollen 4 days ago. Still test NEGATIVE~!

Later on at night, I sit on the front porch (basically just some steps with outdoor carpet) and vape. I love watching people try to "parallel park" cars LOL. The people next door are really bad at it... one time it took 8 tries. It's like watching comedy channel.

Thanks. I’m feeling a little bit better. Temperature is near normal and I was able to sleep without coughing throughout the night. My sinuses are still very congested and I have a lot of drainage.

Fall has come in. FIL says we're 'spectin' some rain inbound too. Know I'm a human barometer at times as well. Had a bunch of morning gunk to honk out this morning. Got to love the weather changing up.

I easily get sinus infections and have always had issues (tendency to get sick) with big temperature fluctuations that always come during spring and fall.

Mark if you don't already use it try Quercetin you might try it, it works great for clearing up sinus problems. Mine were very bad till I started usin the quercetin, huge difference. Hope you are feelin better soon.

Did laundry as per usual on Saturday.

This morning I went up to feed Maow. Took him out a slice of dried beef as a treat as well. Got up to the barn. Seemed something/one had taken off the weighty items from the feed can lid. The feed can sat open with the scoop cup laying to one side.

Stepped over to her Pawpaw's "Big Red" pickup. In the bed of it laid my umbrella my wife bought for me. It was just tossed into the bed without any seeming care. Not the first thing I've noted in the pickup bed. Saw one of our bar stool chairs in it a few weeks ago, busted up.

Her BIL has pretty well taken over "Big Red". Reckon he just assumed permission to have it. Seems he assumes permission over way too much. He had no permission to bust up one of our bar stools. Granted they're not the greatest built. Still if you use care and act sensible there's no reason why one ought to get busted up.

Recalling the busted up chair I grabbed up my umbrella. Wife didn't pay too horribly much for it. She got two, one for me and her. They're the $15 to $20 ones, big old bomber-shoot style umbrellas. We kept using the little $3 to $5 ones and having them go to pieces in a light storm. So she got us some "nicer" ones.

It's one thing if something gets busted up if you got permission. It's another to just assume permission and then let stuff go to Hell. I'm getting damn tired of the assumption as well as the letting stuff go to Hell. Me and her get stuff for ourselves. They work the same as we do. They can go get the same as we do.

But no, that would be too much like well, like work. So I put my umbrella up. If it goes missing I'll know where to look and I'll raise Hell, bet I won't. I don't mind to a point to share. There is still a point though when you get fed up with being a door mat.

Sorry not really checking in much here lately. Been living and as evidenced not really much to share. Dislike expressing frustrations even with friends. Not really one to be a garbage truck despite appearances contrary. Rather focus on the good even despite the heavy thumb of the bad.

The good is I'm doing my job & doing the best I can. Does it make others look bad? I don't know, or care. I'm only focused on doing the work, going home, getting paid. Had someone try calling after 3 PM for a "today's work". She had a migraine. I can be sympathetic up to a point.

I had worked two weeks prior with gout flaring up. Didn't say a thing to anyone at work and little to my wife. The point of fact though is substitutes are only supposed to be called from 5 AM to 3 PM for that day's work. Her call come around 4:30 to 5 PM. Even if it was only a half shift, still not for me to be obligated to accept it. It was "against the rules" and I've been told "everybody follows the rules". So there's that.

And so I've been living and keeping on keeping on. What else does a child of the seventies do? Oh yeah, disco. Nah. Rather listen to Black Sabbath, Rush and the like. Might listen to some Bread. In short no news is good news.

Going out to clean up some leaves and cut the lawns. Blow them on the lawn and use the mower to pick them up~!

I hope to be able to get my mowing done today before dark. It rained nearly all day yesterday so everything is still very wet.

Same here but I pulled some Tomato Plants and String Beans before but it wasn't bad. Wet leaves tend to not blow around when you pick them up with the mower. Now time for coffee and a Vape on the Back Patio.

Likewise here, lovely dreary day.

From your earlier post it would seem we are of nearly the same era and have similarities in upbringing. I graduated High School in 1979. My parents instilled in me that you always ask permission to borrow or use something and when you do you always return it in better condition than when you got possession of it. If you break something you fix it or replace it. If you borrow a vehicle, mower, etc., you return it clean and with a full tank of fuel.

Class of 80 here and I was raised the same way~!
