All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!



Due to the snow storm last week:

I managed to get 14.5 hrs of O.T.  Yea me.  Tomorrow is my first day off in 13 days.

I managed to get 7 of my trees wrecked by the heavy snow. 

The snow is now mostly melted and I can get around in the yard.

I still love Husqvarna chain saws.  This has proved to be one of my better tool purchases.

I've made a few trips to the composting facility that takes trees and chips them.  They are over whelmed with branches. 

All the downed branches are cut up, but the dead stuff hanging in the trees still requires my attention.

I've got several more trips to go before the yard is cleared up and lots more tree work after that.

One of my neighbors has a front end loader.  After the snow he decided to help everyone on the street by moving snow.  Unfortunately he isn't real good about using it and moved several wheel barrels full of my gravel driveway to places that didn't have gravel before, like mine and my neighbors yard.

I will get to the gravel after the trees are done, if it doesn't snow some more.

I've done darn little blogging, which is likely to continue being the case.

Don't worry the bad joke Wednesday queue is full of jokes. 

More importantly hunting season is in full swing and I'll be lucky to get out.


  1. I haven't blogged on it because of my long work week and the yard work, but I'm hearing horror stories out of Yellowstone.
