    I've been to Sherwin Williams twice today thinking I picked out the new exterior paint for the house. I'm officially 0 for 2. Hopefully the third time will be the charm. I'm just glad I didn't drop $800 on paint the first color we went with. Picking out a color harder than I thought it was going to be. All the hard work prepping and priming the house and now I can't find the right color.

    I always start with the maximum 3 hardware trip planning for any heavy-duty household project.  If I am still hosing it up after 3 then time to declare victory and get someone who knows what they are doing.  FWIW-
    Good luck-what could go wrong   =)

    They were sliced on the cutting board.  Nothing fancy. Managers special at Harris Teeter. Seared for about 1.5 mins per side.

    Dinner. Not a lot of variety  😂 
  • lousubcaplousubcap Posts: 20,703
    Great cross-section right there @pgprescott .  I would take that lack of variety any time, any day.  Friggin nailed it.  Congrats.

    Thanks!  My wife really deserves most of the credit as far as effort goes.  She did everything else on that plate.  :-) 

    How did flounder fishing to @Sea2Ski ?

    Everything is a team effort

    Lots of throwbacks but we caught a few larger keepers. This one was the winner 25” and 4.47 lbs. 
    picture does not do it justice, but the scale does not lie. 


    That is awesome!  Never fished for them before.  I am not sure I have ever seen one before!  How do you catch them.  Trolling?  Drifting?  Bottom?  Looks like they have some power to them.  I bet they can put up a good fight. . .

    There's a big steam rally at Lincoln every August, so me and Dom went down to have a look at all of the old stuff. These are just a few of the steam engines - one stationary, one road roller and one traction engine - selected because they were made by a company called Marshall that was based in our town of Gainsborough.



    Aw man, that really brings back memories!  There was a town in South Dakota that held a "Threshing Bee" every fall, and had all kinds of these old machines, running, and demo-ing all the old processes.  My Dad brought me and his Dad to it one year, and I've never seen Grandpa looking like a little kid like that, he really enjoyed it.  They had blacksmithing, sawyering and horse-shoeing demonstrations, too.  
    By the end of the day we were hot, sweaty, smelled of coal fumes and had wheat chaff stuck in our clothing, great fun.  
    @Botch not sure how many years this type of event has got left now. The steam engines are VERY exppensive now and the old boys who do these shows are mostly guys who bought when nobody else was interested and put hundreds or thousands of hours into restoration and upkeep. Unless you live nearby, you need a full size truck and flatbed for the weekend just to attend the show. When they pass on, a lot of this stuff will end up static in museums with the occasional firing.

    I feel your pain.  We have been onver 100 all last week.  Yesterday we broke a record with 106.  Today is 103.  But hey Wednesday is only supposed to be 98.  So we have that to look forward too.  #wheniswinteragain

    @kl8ton. They are fluke flounder. Like all flounder, they are on the bottom. They eat just about everything. Many use squid strips and small minnows. I like using larger baitfish around 4” or so or jigs. They fight a bit but are fun to catch.  The bite is the best part because the bite in a specific way. Delicious delicate white meat, but if you overcook, it dries out really fast.

    Was out fishing and we saw something forming on the horizon.  Packed up and headed to dock.  We get back and tied up just in time.
