78 degrees 24/7. Have ceiling fans in all rooms except bathrooms and, for real hot days, I have a series of floor fans that really keeps the air circulating.

We also keep the temp at 78 0r 79 all the time with the ceiling fans going.
Also have one in the master bath.

Toyota Tacoma is a good truck, everyone that I know that drives one can’t say enough good things about them. Most have owned the same truck for 20+ years

Will check them out also
Its all a matter of if it will fit in the garage after I  get my shed to move a lot of stuff into.

Well when he is sent to prison I doubt he will last very long in there.

got a length of 1x6 treated lumber but didn't like "the look" (1x compared to 2x on the opposite side), so.....with my chainsaw I shaved the side of one of the vertical posts and screwed in the "L" shaped hinges in on the other vertical  (to the point that I thought I might "torque em off", but didn't) - and finally got that 10' steel stock gate "hung"

that makes 7 of those steel stock gates that I've put in place - I'm gettin' good at "gate hanging"

the replaced and very heavy gate that I just took down.....I "might" have it sand blasted and powder coated then use it somewhere else around the property - I'm thinking they were expensive when new

had thought about Tractor mowing this afternoon.....but it suddenly got to the start of my "happy hour" - so I'm done for the day

Hey , hope everything works out good for you tomorrow  . :th_thicon_idea:

VA doctor for stress test manana, in dallas, not looking forward to the drive - but.....

well I did get out on the Spartan and mowed most everything that requires that mower (it really is a nice mower !)  just need, sometime, to get into the "corners" that can't be reached, with the weedeater (again....."sometime")

dumped the old water outta the water trough that's set up for the Boys in their new Pasture and filled with fresh, cool water - next I've gotta drain their Barn's water trough, scrub it and refill that one

pic below shows the Spartan zero turn mower doing poop detail with the little trailer at our previous place - the Wife just loves to mow with this mower.....there's a air or hydraulic dampened seat available that I think I'm gonna get - as a gift to the Wife

I got a trailer just like your red one only mine is gray and is about 20 years old and needs a paint job. LOL

Boneless pork ribs grilled with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob.

My favorite part of Independence Day. Grilled cheeseburger with a thick slice of onion and tomato, Chili cheese dog with mustard and a side of potato salad.
For dessert my wife's angel food cake topped with slices of bananas, strawberries and whipped cream.
My son was in charge of the grill and my wife and daughter in law everything else. I took command of the beer. :salute:

Wow seeing all that has made me hungry, looks great.

If you really need to be macho and shoot a gun BLANKS are cheap.

in the last six years I've bought two used vehicles by using Enter make, model, price range, mileage and distance your willing to travel and it provides a list with photos and the contact info for dealers and private parties willing to sell.

Thanks for the site , will check it out.

Wish everyone a safe and happy 4th. :salute: :th_texasflag:

Will keep you in my prayers and hope you get better soon.

I'am in the Tomball area and will travel maybe 150 miles to check out a vehicle.
As far as miles go 60,000 or less and a price range of around 14,000.

Been looking around for another truck since I got rid of my 1998 dodge.
I need a smaller one that I can fit in my garage along with the wifes car.
Dodge Dakota w/ extended cab
Ford Ranger    w/ same
Chevy S 10      w/same
GMC Sonoma   w/same
Nissan Frontier  w/same

If Y'All happen to come across one of these in good shape and fairly low mileage let me know.

Had a nice light rain last night about 7:00 that lasted about an hour .
Did some yard work today till about 2:00 and called it quits as it was getting a little to hot .
