An average sized Bull Shark in Sydney Harbour. They are more dangerous than White Pointers as they are very inquisitive, swim up rivers etc and eat more people than White Pointers.

That's a sexy dock!
My old lab used to think he was so smart swimming out into the lake thinking he was going to swim and catch a duck or a goose. They would tease and string him along... Then they would just fly away when they got bored... I could see his little gears just a grinding that he would get them next time. Then again he would try and retrieve a rock if someone threw it or skipped it on the water... I he would just circle and whine.

Best dog ever just dumb as a post.

Droughts are hard, I know my cousins went through a really bad couple of years out on the prairies. They diversified into bison.

Will the gypsum still work over the year to pull the salt out? Or does it need to be repeated in spring.

Everything looking great! I hear you on the drought, here in the OK panhandle its completely smoked dry. No fireworks or open grilling period within 60-80 miles of my place this year until further notice by authorities. Dead vegetation everywhere just waiting to go up like flash paper. Hope all you patriots have a great 4th of July celebration.

Punxsutawney Joe came out of his basement today and did his Tuesday morning quarterback routine. Hindsight is always 20/20 Just wonder if he's telling the same truth as he did when asked about the Flynn case. Boy I hope he is able to stay out of his hole long enough to have a reasonable debate with DJT

good luck, Senior! maybe ya should have Chuck come down, do a rain dance! lol

ya mentioned needin a fish cleaning station last week, I remembered today, we have ol' boys buy the old metal ironing boards at Habitat, which I found strange, so I asked couple fellers if it was a joke for their wife or if they just had a death wish, lol
turns out, they use em to clean/fillet fish on, they dont take up much room, easy set up, easy clean, easy storage...
just an idea for ya

Morning ya´ll. Nice warm day here, some clouds and no wind. Just stopped working on my 77 LTD. Changed carb´s and now i kinda struggle with adjusting it *lol* Seem like there is a vacuum leak in one of the hoses. For once, it could´ve been easy, but nope. *lol* Changed PCV, EGR, some hoses too, seems i gotta go on. Sucks balls, cause i´d rather drive around then sticking my head under the hood. (Thats what ya do in the winter, right?)*haha* Those 2150´s carbs arent to heavy on the user, but still can suck balls from time to time.

This environment change means increasing dry weather. We created it, so we've got to live with it. Still, it's good to see that the crops are making a move and Don's hard work has not been in vain. Hopefully, a decent downpour will help our guy out.
