It most likely will seem warm to you but your native friends may not want to play outside.

We also scored a record yesterday.

As we worked around the peony bed we saw 2 wooly worms and if you believe in that sort of weather prediction we may not be able to get out of the house this winter. There was very little orange to be seen, they were mostly black.

There may be some truth to the wooly worms. Nature has it's ways. We only have Wiarton Willy - the groundhog that predicts early or a long winter. But that doesn't happen until Early February, when I'll hopefully be warmed by the southern US sun.

There's nothing around here that I know of that can give any hints to the coming winter - extra cold, warm breaks, extra snowy - except the so called meteorologists, that got the spring warm up wrong 4 times this year.

I do know it will be cold. I also know there will be snow - how much? Who knows. I do know the winter will be long. Not as long as Calagary's winter. Parts around there are digging out from a couple feet of snow that fell this week.

My woolly worm is not the official one. That one is at the woolly worm festival and not until the end of the month. https://www.heartofthekentuckyriver....mfestival.html

We love just about any excuse to party.

Yes, that was "chuckle-worth".

Colder today, more seasonal the rest of the week, and markets tumble again. Frack!

The last two days were rough market days. Perhaps there is some hope for today.

For the markets, it doesn't look good when everyone is fearmongering. Sure, some of it's real, and some (for sure) is imagined. It just starts gaining negative momentum after a while. They're saying it's a dismal report on manufacturing, but there's also Brexit and, oh yes, global trade issues. Maybe one day I'll try to keep abreast of things, but for now, I don't have the attention span to divert in 8-10 different directions:

Oh, I see, it's "this" - but to understand "this" I have to go there. Oh, while there, to understand parts of that, I have to go further away from where I started from.

By the time I'm 6 or 7 layers deep, I've forgotten what I was looking for in the first place.

If you ever understand why the lemmings act as they do be sure to let me know. I gave up a long time ago. What the market does in the next 6-12 months matters not to me because history is on the side of of what it will do in the next 5 years.

I'm sure the lemmings don't know why they act the way they do. Everything's becoming automated (software-application-based), which the Universities are conveying as the reason behind wilder fluctuations creating the greater peaks and valleys.

I'm having a real hard time time understanding the commission free trades game. I felt a little guilty as an ETrade customer trading as little as I do as I know they are in it to make money and 6.95 a trade seem like is was pretty low cost.

Now starting Monday it is commission free. Where are they making their money?

I didn't read all the squinty print, but I see the web page "Learn more" link shows a page with the following title:

"#1 Digital Broker E*TRADE Announces $0 Base Rate Commissions for Online Stock, ETF, and Options Trades"

So, it looks like you are right. Maybe it's limited options on what can be traded and volumes. Maybe the limitations lead to other plans or levels of buying-selling with fees - I really can't say.

Come Monday I will let you know. I may not complete the trade but I will enter an order to what happens.

Looks like a minor recovery today and yesterday wasn't bad either. I feel like I'm on a see-saw.

Yep, hopefully today is another rebound day.

Have got my next week planned out for closing up the backyard and garden areas. So much to do - so little time!

It even felt a little like Fall here this morning and the day is very pleasant. Then hot tomorrow before the cooler weather settles in hopefully with that promised rain.

In the hopes of that I spent the better part of my day reconnecting the the PVC gutter drain that fills the pond. Been on my to do list for about 5 years and we really need some water in the pond both before and after the cleaning. There isn't enough left in it to fill the storage tank where the fish and frogs will live while I clean the pond.

PigPen like bays are coming for me. Oh the joy of it.

I see you are having the time of your life. My tasks and "things to do" are dwarfed by what you are in the middle of managing.

We thought about a pond or running water in the back of the yard, but, I can't even keep a backyard spigot from splitting.

I will, however, be looking into an irrigation system for next season - something I wouldn't be installing, but would manage the programming of.

Pretty sore today. Hangs and knees crawling on deck and gravel not good for old knees.

On to better things for today. And if I'm real lucky rain tomorrow.

Crawling on hands and knees was how I got myself into physio again.

Dr says it's arthritis, and just don't be doing anything similar that caused the issue in the first place. Looks like no painting baseboards, no floor work - too bad.

That's nice for the Doc to say; but in the real world unless you are rich you sometimes have to do those things.

You can lay on your side to paint baseboards. I've done it for years. Tell the General to call me and I will explain to her her how you can do your chores with a lot less pain than you are going to have if you don't do them.
