Does RED look good on me?

If it is cloudy and threatening to storm........YES, you still can get a sun burn! IN the morning I could see a storm that was forming and I didn't really think I would be out on the beach that long. The storm passed to our east and we came in for lunch. James then wanted to go to the pool, So I sprayed down with the 30 sun screen. That evening when this picture was taken I realized that I got a whole bunch of sun.

I am paying for my lack of attention last night and today. I suppose I will be paying for the next couple of days. We stopped off at the pharmacy and I asked where was the sunburn sprays. She asked how bad is it and I lifted up my sleeve to a "OMG!". I have one she recommended and one that said ICE and then I have the natural approach. James took some Alvera and smashed it up. He applied that to my forehead while we are testing the other two on the rest of the burn. So, if you go outdoors with out long sleeves, apply sun screen 30 at once.

Boy's Trip

We are shutting down the shop for a while and hitting the road. This is a Boy's Trip so the wifey and "Jill" gets to stay home (I am sure they will enjoy the piece and quite). You have seen the previous posts written by James and I am sure he will write about his trip adventures. Time to hit the road, Bye!

My dog Jill

My dog Jill is a great dog a bit wild but good. We give her food, water, shelter, and love.

This is James from Camp Guy Farm Fresh eggs. The eggs come from chickens who live happily and healthfully in our farm coop.

Bales of maize

Jimmy was in the fields last week baling left-over maize stalks. I didn't know they did that.

Apollo 11

On this anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission, we must take a pause and ask ourselves what is next? Mars? A Moon Base? The Space Station Hotel? Whatever is decided we must move forward in space. As a youngster I loved space and the missions of NASA. I remember looking at the moon and stars with my telescope, dreaming of going to space.
I guess I have passed that down to my Son. He enjoys space and it's mysteries. Maybe one day he will go, maybe one day, it will be a routine flight to the Moon and beyond. We need to look forward and move forward in exploring the final frontier.

Pizza and Guy on the Map

How surprised I was, to sit down in a Houston shopping mall food court, and see my town on the map. I look around and all the tables are different with different parts of Texas. What are the chances that GUY was featured on the map. I very rarely venture to the mall but, I stopped there because it was late and fast. Now the big question is, what are the chances a guy from GUY would sit at that table? I guess I should have bought a lotto ticket that night.

My Star Wars Collection

I have a Star Wars The Clone Wars Collection. James

An afternoon at CampGuy

Jimmy was in the fields today. But our Head Of Security, Officer Jill was let out of her pin for patrol duty. She didn't let the trespasser go unnoticed with out heavy barking. She almost got run over by the combine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But she turned back about 20 yards away!


I drove home from the big city and I saw all the farmers hard at work. July 4th a holiday and they were all out in the fields harvesting. As dusk turned into night, I looked over the fields and I saw them, the tractors running and all the flood lights on, Harvesting.
I looked over into the distance and fireworks were going off, both public displays and the little johnny displays. I look over into the fields and there were the tractors and the trucks HARVESTING.
I salute you, the Farmer and Rancher, The backbone of America!

The Pipe Fix

I hope everyone had a great July 4th. I spent mine with my Dad and Aunt. I was helping my Dad clean out my late uncle's work shop. My aunt then asked if I could see what was leaking in the attic, so she could call the right repair person.

I crawl up there expecting to see a clogged A/C drain or something. It was a small hole in a pipe, and it had been leaking for sometime. She had a bucket in her bedroom, where it was dripping. So, I run to Home Depot (my crack store) to get some rubber and clamps, and then I see this pipe repair kit, I have watched "Tool Time", So I purchased the kit also.

I decide that the kit would be the way to go, It will be fixed and no plumber would be needed. I do the patch job and pulled three bags of insulation out the attic, that were soaked with water. My patch job held and no more leak. The ceiling will have to be patched because the drywall is not DRY anymore.

Oh, for my Northern Neighbors, We were under a HEAT warning, with a 103 index. So I had NO idea how HOT it was in the attic.

Have a Happy, Safe and Cool, July 4th!

Mustang Sally

I came across this picture and the song "Mustang Sally" just popped in my head. I guess it is the open road and the wind in the face. It is one of my favorite songs I have in my motorcycle folder
for the IPOD.
