    I remember this question from an old forum I use to belong to, so I thought I would post it here!

    As for me today, I'll be washing & hanging some clothes, then later, I'll be heading over to the market (ShopRite) to do a little shopping. I try & go on Mondays, in that they give a Military discount every Monday for active duty & retired vets.

    Later on I'll come back, cook at some point & do whatever until it's time to watch Monday Night Football and have a few cold ones!:D

    Sounds like a balanced day to me!

    Got up early today, gassed up the tractor/riding mower & now I'm just waiting for the morning dew to evaporate.

    I could cut it now but the wet grass just sticks to everything!

    Later on I'll move some firewood from the woodpiles in the rear of the property to my wood rings closer to the house.

    Before ya know it'll be time to light the fireplace up.

    Once that's done, it'll be time to kick back, have a few & enjoy my retirement!:D

    I have another long day today but then I have to come home a pack. The wife and I are flying to Grand Junction, CO for four days of judging tomorrow. I might even get to see my first snowfall this weekend.

    Took my truck in for repairs this morning. My rear axle is rusting & starting to leak.

    I was hoping to finish the yard work but after last nights storm the ground is saturated & too soft to work with.

    Oh well, maybe tomorrow!

    Hey Dancer, have a safe trip & enjoy.:D

    Today I'm gonna finish up the yard work, then do some running around!

    Post office, Home Depot/hardware store, auto parts store & whatever else.

    At some point later on I'll head to the Police range & do some shooting.

    Then it will be time to kick back & watch Thursday Night Football.

    Got up late today. Didn't get done at the Police range till around 8:00 pm. Then after that we did a little drinking, watched the game & talked trash!

    Got a few errands to do today, then I'm gonna come home & clean my guns.

    Cleaned up all the dead leaves and branches around the homestead...and bagged them for pick-up on Tuesday.

    Cleaned all the windows in the house...sure glad we have those tilt in windows instead of having to break out the ladder.

    Got up this morning and did my running around. Came home & cleaned my firearms that I did not get to do yesterday.

    Now it's time to kick back & chill for the remainder of the day. I'll probably stay inside for the rest of the day because it's raining & crappy out!

    Hey Shooter, those moderned windows really do make a big difference when it comes time to cleaning them!:D
