Well,nothing new about trucking anyway except i'm already sad that I have to work tomorrow-Memorial Day :(

I've finally finished a smoker/grill that Kevin started at the shop and never finished.I offered to buy it from him and he said I could have it,and it's been in the backyard for weeks. It's made out of a 55 gallon drum,on a stand. Didn't have any grill grates for it,but I cut off some old oven racks and put them in it. They should work fine for chicken or smoking a boston butt,but smaller things will fall through pretty easy. Good thing I have 3 more grills for smaller stuff,and I still got the smoker oven too.

Been like Elmer Fudd trying to keep a rabbit out of the garden. The beans came up,even the ones I replanted and they were looking pretty good. When I got home Thursday I looked at the garden and they looked like stems coming out of the ground-all the leaves had been eaten by a creature. Looked out the window and saw a rabbit and a squirrel in it. Last year rabbits ate the cantalopes,but didn't bother anything else. This year I didn't plant any cantolopes for them,so they ate my beans-i've been spraying the whole garden with a little hot sauce and a little dawn mixed up in a spray bottle. People tell me it works,but I don't know. I don't want to try that new grill for the first time with a roasted rabbit,but I didn't plant enough beans for me and the rabbit too. ( :D just kidding,PETA people :rolleyes: )

I've got to leave in the morning and go to Petersburg and load for Neville Island,Pa. That's just north of Pittsburgh. Last week I went to Fremont,Oh. and then over to Butler,In. and loaded steel back to Roanoke-6 coils. Then I went to Orchard Park,N.Y. and loaded at Brookfield,Oh. for Roanoke. Pennsylvania DOT nabbed me at Bald Eagle,Pa. on the way to Orchard Park. Gave me a warning ticket for my log book not being current :angry: I should have had it caught up-I had just gotten up on an exit ramp near Roaring Spring and was gonna go to the Snappy store at Bald Eagle and get a cup of coffee and get my book right. Unfortunately,the DOT was camped in the median just before you get to Snappy's. :pat:

Rabbit is pretty tasty if you parboil it before you cook it-otherwise they're kinda tough :lol:

might as well illustrate this entry too-the truck in the driveway, new (to me!) grill,what's left of some of the the green beans after the creature gnawed them off.

And on a more serious note,it is Memorial Day weekend-let's not forget what Memorial Day is and remember the veterans,and those who sacrificed all so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. May God bless this nation,and keep us all safe. This I pray in the name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. Amen

where can I get some dynamite? I saw the rabbit out there last night just before dark,under the peach tree. I think it was eating peaches that had fallen on the ground. He can have all of them he wants,but I chased him off anyway. The beans aren't dead,they'll come back if I can keep him from eating them completely up. An old 275 gallon heating oil barrell make good smokers to make on a trailer. I've seen a couple of them,one had gas burners,Roger Eagle's was charcoal with 2 5" chrome stacks on it.

That's about the whole place,I have about 3/4 of an acre,the little garden and grill is in the back yard. Note 2 CB antennas with reflector tape on them marking the driveway :D

just gave the garden a final pepper spray,now I must be off. They say pepper spray works on bears,I hope it keeps the rabbit away. I have not seen a single bear in the garden.

Have a good week.

And thanks for feeding the rabbits!

you're welcome-I want them all to be fat and healthy so they'll survive the trip to Fishers packed in a crate.
