Trish, that's awesome new's. I'm sure the training and such will go well for ya.
Weather here has been very bizarre. We've had 5 verfified tornadoes this year. N.Y. normally N.Y. has 1 in 15 - 20 years.
1 of them came within a 1/4 mi. of my place. Luckily no death's but alot of damage. The rain we've had has been something else too. Storm's dont last long, but dumps a ton of water in the process. Drains cant handle it all. by the job there was alot of apartments that had water damage. The basement of the church had 4 - 5 inches of water, twice., on 2 different occasion's in 1 month. What a time cleaning that up by myself. .. but it got done.
Well I've got good news as well on my end. Had 2 credit cards I've been trying to get caught up on. and it hasnt been easy at all. Been a very rough year. long story short, treasurer found a discrepancie in my pay, in my favor. Somehow I'm 2 week's off of cycle from everyone elses payroll. SO, I got cut a extra check to bring up to snuff. With that check I will be able to pay off the balance of 1 of the cards. Not living high on the hog yet, but it sure will b a little easier.
NOW the bad news. Bike is done for the year. Just had the motor rebuilt in April. Went on a run for Diabetes. hafway there the tranny started gringing between 2nd and 3 rd. By the time I got home it was doing it thru all the gears. Took it apart the next day, nothing but metal shaving's. Can't afford to get a new tranny and cant afford the parts to rebuild this one. So my riding is done for this year. Well on my bike anyway. A friend of mine always lets me ride one of his, so might get 1 or 2 more runs in before they get put away for the winter.
Other than that I'm hanging in there, just like everyone else.
Keep me posted on the new job. I'm really happy for you.

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones
are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
Then You Are Probably
The family dog.
(Bet you thought this was going to get all spiritual)
Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it,
pee on it and walk away.
Thought this was hysterical and had to share it with you.
Equinox thanksgiving went great. Served 500 meals that day and had alot of happy people.
Turkey Trot race was a snot. Alot of good competition. Got into the B-main and finished 6th. 1 spot out of getting into the A-main. No biggy, I'm in it for the fun annyway and met alot of cool people.

Hey Trish. Hope all's well with you. Nothing much happening here. Work is crazy with meeting's, group's, etc. Gives me something to do for 8 hours. lol Tree's are turning colors fast. Hope to get some pics this weekend. got hired to shoot the kid's play that the church puts on. Has nothing to do with my regular duties there. Pastors not happy about it, but she did admit my work looks good. lol Might have a painting job as well. an apartment. With a power sprayer, it wont take long at all. Weather here has been awesome. still in the 70's during the day. Nights are getting down there tho. I'm not closing the windows until I see frost .. inside.
You take care my Friend.

I stopped by the Chevrolet Dealership yesterday, for a look at the new Silverado 1500 pickup. Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive. I wanted to sense that new "feel" before they become extinct.
The salesman (a black man wearing an Obama "change" lapel pin) sat in the passenger seat describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options. The seats were of particular interest. He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat. Feeling like messing with him, I mentioned that this must be a Republican truck.
Looking a bit angry, he asked why I thought it was a Republican truck. I explained that if it were an Obama truck, the seats would blow smoke up your ass year-round.
I had to walk back to the dealership. Damn guy had no sense of humor

Hey Trish. Just stoppin by to say hey. Not a whole lot happening here. Hope all's well with you. Love this picture and had to share it with ya.

Glad you enjoyed. I really wanted to get the butterfly, it was awesome watching him. Just got mobbed by people the minute I started and that took care of that. lol (really did piss me off). Not a whole lot happening here. Job's driving me nut's, just not easy finding another without taking a cut. To be dealt with. Hope all is well on your end.

Hey Trish. Shot some macro work I did lately. Hope you enjoy.
Thanks Trish. Just some quick shots on the drive home. Looked better from the highway, but no place to stop and shoot from there. Soooo, had to settle for these shot's.

Looked better from the highway, but no place to stop there. Too cool not to shoot it anyway.
He might like this too. shot this the same afternoon.
Got some pics posted in the album 'Out n About". Not my best work but was better than the fishing. lmao
Posted by: coldheartgraphix 2013-08-03
Well, the Pond I was told about was a bust. oh, there's fish alright, about the size of bait. lmao
No, I'm Strictly catch and release. Only eat fish ocasionally. Plus when Encon adivses not to eat more than 3 fish a month (caught) Says alot about the trust in the water. lol I've had people pissed that I released large fish, too bad. If they want it, catch it. Just a way to have fun, relax and get away from everyday noise.
So being the fishing sucked, wandered around with the camera and camcorder. Made a good time of it.

Thanks for the links. I really appreciate it. I was looking at sites after doing a seach the other night. some seemed beyond me as to what you had to do with code to have em embedded and such.
Cant believe all this time and no response of any kind from fileden. a nice site when it works.
Thanks again, really appreciate it. going fishing, talk to ya soon

Yea, I saw the thing you have there pretty cool. Have no idea how you find this stuff.
The Adirondack's here are amazing. I've wandered off the beaten path as much as I can. I dont wanna see what the sheeples see, I want to see what theyre missing. lol
Posted by: coldheartgraphix 2013-07-29
Any of this bring back memories?
Hope all's well with you.
Still no feedback from fileden. Haven't a clue whats up with them.

Hey Trish. Hope all's going well for you. Weather here has been beautiful, 80's & 90's. I love it. Went fishing last Fri. 2 Bass, 12 & 14 in. and 4 Herring 8 - 12 in. nothing huge but fun just the same.
Job's still being a pain. They want me to do some restoration work but dont want to match the pay that should go with it. I'm standing firm on this 1. Pay already stink's for what they expect, not taking on anymore until they start to give a little as well.
Other than that, doing pretty good. Racing's going real well. Result's have been great with no major damage at this point. Went to the Harley rendzvous, omg, 90,000 bikes showed up this year. Sounded like thunder all week while they were arriving. lol. Had a good time there, always do. lol
Stay safe my friend. we'll be in touch soon.

I'm so lucky to be working with a team like this.
Posted by: coldheartgraphix 2013-05-31
Hey Trish, It's been a while. Hope all's going good for you. Weather here has finally warmed up. Still cool night's, but it's a start. Racing's going great. Working with 3 team's this year. Garage work only. occasional pit crew/chief but not spending all spring/summer at the track's.going to concentrate more on Fishing, photography, and more fishing. It's just not fun when it start's to feel like work. lol
Take care my Friend.
