No doctor here amigo , just a worn out old cement finisher
Hey, I've done flatwork my own self. Sidewalks, driveways, basements in a development.

Rocket City aka Rock Springs back in '77. 1st day riding into town the sheriff was on the side of the road with a white and red checkered cloth over a dead body... those were the days!

Cement trucks were brand-spankin-new in town... someone said the Mafia...

Lemme know when you go, if your game, and im not busy, ill meet you down there for a hike. I know what all the plants are..........lol

I hear tell its possible to camp at rourke ranch, noone goes in that far, no squirrel cops. Lots of kick ass night shows coming over from the pinion canyon grounds.

Just saying, never done that myself.

They ought to bloom hard last few weeks of May, if its warm, into early June. The wildflowers will start a week or so earlier. After a late snow then a warmup is always a good time.

2 years ago I went 5 times, it changes when it starts to warm up.

There is great fishing there too.

The bends in the river have some deep holes. There is big catfish in them.

If you have a co fishing license, its all legal like.

there is also some whopper panfish if yuo have a light tackle rig, or fly rod.

Noone fish's there, the fish are virgins.

Of course if you take em home, you have to carry em out of there. Some would scoff, they never walked out of that big bottom. Its 2 miles. I like it fresh in the morning, on the way out.

Since young'uns have to stay home and submit their work online to the teachers, this is a students Art assignment. The students are supposed to find things in nature and create Art. A photo had to be taken and submitted for grade. Probably learned more gathering the materials than ever would in the classroom.

BTW, those bright yellow flowers (Dandelions) can be cooked into a nice dish. Snip off the green, bread them, and fry them up with a little oil. Has a taste similar to mushrooms.

Are you pointing to me, Ugly? Because I saw you snagged it from The Bungaman Chronicles (or at least that's where I thought you got it) and just smiled to myself, I didn't really ignore it. Glad ya liked it.

Comes with a harness to wear that hooks on to this pistola so you don't drop it from the recoil. (inserts into the little triangle)
For a nominal fee you can purchase the Bell, full head enclosure helmet with HUD, for possible head trauma from said recoil.
Don't forget the wrist strap for bracing.

So, about 3 years ago, I taped some 98% zinc lincolns in the bottom of a toy boat as ballast.

Suffice to say, the boat spent plenty of time in the water.

The toy officially broke, and this is one of the pennies that was inside.

Oh my God!

I once saw a long chain of tiny functioning locks made (some-fargin-how) by a prisoner made as a gift to the Queen of England. She had him released in appreciation.

But this guy... GAWD!!

The very essence of incredible labor for 40 seconds of... orgasmic wreckage! And he ain't even in jail.

This might just be the kick in the butt I needed to get my deer fencing up. They were eating lefter parts of last years crops. One had a fine time with an old tomato stem.

A fox came by to check out the mouse nest. Mice are nesting in the log looking thing, it's actually a garden ornament of a woodpecker on a branch.
