Morning all. June is here and we are practically half way through the year. This month also marks me turning another year older (freakin hell).

The house is 35' up on the sunny side of a tree by the pond.
It is 15" wide and 7" deep with 3/4" chambers.

You may want to check the tank gasket, it seemed awfully dry last time I had it out and it may be leaking by. Unscrew a couple of the boards on the back and you should have very easy access.

The holly was originally on the 351M and my only real complain with it was that I didn't think the 4 barrel was opening properly (if at all).

A bat can eat half it's weight in insects every night. If a Little Brown Bat even only weighs 2oz. that's still a hell a lot of mosquitoes. X100 in a colony, well you do the math....

Good afternoon slackers. I'm still taking it easy from my knee surgery. You know, elevate the leg and watch TV or DVDs. Might take the engine off the rototiller today to replace the pulleys. Time will tell.
