I replaced the ceiling light fixtures with recessed LED ones and added an RF dimmer. https://www.crossroadsowners.com/for...res-15194.html

Then I added another RF on/off switch to control the entry light, and changed that to a recessed LED.

I built a cedar spa floor for the shower. https://www.crossroadsowners.com/for...oor-15204.html

Swapped out the bathroom light for the last of 5 LED recessed units I bought.

Added an RF remote to the 'Hengs' replacement 3 speed fan in the bathroom as dearly beloved on tippy toes can't quite reach the std control knob.

Got four new 10 pr tires for Harvey, can't find anyone to fit them.

Built a couple of small retaining walls with blocks in the garden and re-planted some schrubs. (Not a fan of gardening...but it made her indoors happy)

Honey Do list is now wiped.....anyone got suggestions for what else I can do?

Just a quick update.... Yesterday at some point in the afternoon, all squirrels vacated my shed. Probably just a daily foraging mission. I then closed up the shed doors, and sprayed some animal deterrent that my mother had lying around in her garage around the shed,
and the base of the tree they had been using to gain access. The stuff probably doesnt work. I'm guessing it contains some sort of predator urine.
Either way, a check this morning shows no signs of them in the shed overnight, everything is still on the shelves. Fingers crossed they found another place to call home by now.

Good Morning Rrizz,


My bet is they've gone to round up the rest of the family having found somewhere warm, cozy and protected with a benevolent landlord no less...


You might as well buy squirrel food and be done with it....Hee hee.


Stay safe my friend.

Mowed lawns for first time, fertilized, and Put in new sprinkler system. Yesterday I cleaned and repacked two wheel bearings on RV. It got too windy to do the other two. I’ll get to them in a few days. Made a bird house for my daughters contractor who is remodeling her kitchen. I made a built in nook bench for my daughter. Wife and I (& dogs) walk every morning. Shop for groceries every 7-10 days. Preparing to minister a wedding for first time (anxious about this). etc, etc

Do not use a carnauba based wax. Use a polymer


I use Rejex and know others that have good success with Meguiar's M2116 Mirror Glaze Synthetic Sealant 2.0

Being retired, not too much has changed for us. However, my wife got out the “wild edibles” book just in case – yikes! We’ve eaten dandelions and cattail roots already and something I couldn’t even pronounce. Fortunately, the wild morels have done well this year and she made a big batch of squirrel fried rice lately so we’re back to normal foods. She is making a trial batch of dandelion wine now so we’ll see how that goes.

The camper was about 200% ready for our Alaska trip last year so after we got back and I packed the wheel bearings it’s 100% ready for this year. We did order a receiver hitch rack for it to carry the bicycles, etc. and Amazon lost the first one so a second one should be on the way today.

I just put a new trolling motor on the fishing boat and a new network to connect it to the sonar. Also put new seals in the hydraulic steering and packed the wheel bearings so it’s ready to go. The weatherman says I need to go fishing Sunday, so that’s the plan.

Turkey season opened Wednesday in Kansas and it closed yesterday for me after a 3-hour conversation with a very vocal tom. Eventually the hormones just got the best of him… Some of us know how that goes…

I’ve always been primarily a walleye fisherman but we stumbled on to a bunch of 15” crappie last year so with all this spare time I’ve been researching crappie fishing and stocking up on crappie jigs. Looks like I got two used crappie fishing books from Ebay in the mail today!

State parks are still open in Kansas and our stay at home order encourages outdoor activities with social distancing. So, we’ll be off to our favorite state park/fishing lake soon until the Memorial Day crowd starts to move in.

Stay safe and enjoy the great outdoors!

I mostly have gotten the Inverter/charger/solar installed. Still waiting on the Cerbo gx control panel to arrive (may-Jun) but rest is installed and programmed.

That's a nice neat looking lay out. Where did you find the room to donate for a setup like that?

Good to see another turkey hunter on here. Thought I would share a couple pictures of my gobbler I got on Saturday. After hunting all my life; at the age of 55 I called in my first and probably last white turkey. Hunting deep in the mountains of Alleghany NC. 18.6 Lbs, 1 1/4 spurs, and a 12” beard. If you notice on the breast you’ll see one little black feather. It’s tail looked to be a little shorter than a regular gobbler. I was shocked when he came in.

LOL, I tore apart everything and pretty much changed the layout 3 times to keep as much space as I could.
I actually think I only lost space where I kept the old propane lantern. I had 2 batteries before so the other side is lost. But when I can actually cross the border and get battleborn. I will stack them and gain the lantern space back.
I could have installed everything behind the wall in the basement. But I want it transferable fairly easy.
I've lost a couple rigs due to mice/hail etc.etc. Insurance never pays enough for mods and improvements.
I'll post a quick panoramic video once I'm done.

Congrats Ted!
We have them around here, (FLOCKS OF THEM) but I've never gotten into hunting them.

Transplanted over 100 Iris and spider lilies from the back side of the house to the entrance of our driveway. For my wife.
