06:32:17 <Kat> Nice Lion
06:44:17 <Kat> Morning
06:50:13 <KorbenC(T-27)> Hey Kat
07:01:44 <Kat> :castle:
07:56:03 <Kat> OF
08:01:27 <Kat> Looks like Lion series is done
08:04:59 <Ryan> Morning
08:06:05 <Kat> Morning
08:08:05 <Ryan> The field by our house had a spectacular display of fireflies last night. There must have been a couple thousand of them.
08:08:20 <Ryan> I was out taking photos for an hour in a light rain. I got two really nice ones.
08:08:54 <Mike J> Fireflies are one of those things I have never seen. And definitely want to.
08:09:10 <Kat> Have seen the synchronous fireflies in The Smokeys - awesome

08:12:14 <Kat> :daisy:
08:12:24 <Mike J> Nice shots. Also a great picture of the eclipse
08:12:34 <Ryan> I had a hard time getting all of them. In the one photo you can see a green haze in the distance from the hundreds that were all flittering about. The field is about a mile long.
08:12:44 <Ryan> Thanks! The Eclipse photo was a surprise.
08:15:39 <Kat> Daisy 0811
08:18:10 <Kat> Nice Ryan
08:18:24 <Kat> Good Morning Craig!
08:18:31 <KorbenC(T-27)> Hi Ryan, aloha Craig!
08:19:18 <Ryan> Morning
08:20:55 <Ryan> I've regressed in the quality of my coffee from a dialed in pour over to a Mokapot.
08:21:20 <Ryan> I have no coffee ground for the pour over and haven't been able to get to the coffee shop to grind it. Oh the humanity.
08:21:48 <Mike J> Ryan, at least it's not cowboy coffee made from
08:21:52 <Mike J> Folgers
08:22:02 <CraigC> howdy
08:22:33 <Ryan> Well, I've done that, too. But this is my home office - Mokapots and cowboy coffee is for when I am out in the boonies :)
08:23:20 <Mike J> The world picks on cowboy coffee, but done right it isn't bad. (I've got a cousin who is a master at the art.)
08:23:53 <KorbenC(T-27)> CraigC, how are you doing? It has been a while if I remember right
08:23:59 <Ryan> I agree! They pick on Moka Pots too
08:24:28 <Ryan> After seven months as a barista, my standards for my personal brews have shifted a smidge.
08:24:44 <Ryan> Glad I got our before I went too far, haha.
08:24:56 <KorbenC(T-27)> Ryan, what is your opinion on French press?
08:25:31 <CraigC> I'm old, but fine. No bosses, no schedules
08:25:34 <Ryan> Love it for certain beans.
08:25:53 <KorbenC(T-27)> CraigC, thats good, still fishing?
08:26:03 <Ryan> Press gives a body that I like a lot but you sacrifice the fine flavors you get with paper filtered coffee.
08:26:34 <CraigC> not til I get my boat prepped, and there are obstacles in the garage from other people that live with me
08:26:44 <Mike J> Mind you, I'm reading all this while drinking Homewood Suites coffee. Not exactly the finest, but I'll drink anything to get me moving.
08:26:52 <KorbenC(T-27)> :thumbsup:
08:27:09 <Kat> I use a Jet Boil French press when out in the wilds! Love it
08:27:12 <Ryan> I am drinking Mokapot "espresso" from whatever is in my cabinet that I got a year ago :P
08:27:25 <CraigC> Mike J, I get walmart generic grounds, then make the coffee to my liking with flavored creamers
08:28:12 <CraigC> today it is zero calorie hazelnut
08:28:16 <Mike J> CraigC, I just drink it black. Easier to make when your eyes aren't open yet
08:28:40 <Kat> CraigC, me too - no flavored crap LOL
08:28:51 <Mike J> Took a while to wean myself from adding anything - but I got there.
08:29:02 <Mike J> Of course, there are some coffees so bad they need something.
08:29:24 <KorbenC(T-27)> Right now I have butterscotch coffee with whatever creamer I had left over, I think just French Vanilla
08:29:29 <CraigC> I'm the opposite.... used to like it black, can't stand black anymore, too bitter for me
08:29:49 <Ryan> I went straight black several years ago. I have a soft spot for bad gas station coffee. I only get it when its 23:30 and I have another three hours on the road.
08:30:16 <Ryan> I can't consume dairy, and I have bad interactions when combining caffeine and sugar. I did not have much of a choice. :(
08:31:05 <CraigC> it might also be that the creamer is a buffer for me, cuz I started getting stomach pains from how much coffee I usually drink
08:31:08 <Mike J> Ryan, I agree on bad gas station coffee. Especially on the 14 hour drive to Yellowstone.
08:31:28 <Ryan> Lately that progressed to a total gluten intolerance, too. I am two weeks into a diet of protein, veggies, and fruit - and I haven't felt this good in years.
08:31:41 <KorbenC(T-27)> Yea, I need caffeine and sugar to get through the day; gas station coffee is so nice on early mornings. Recently I have grown a liking towards Chick Fil A coffee with a bunch of half and half, IDK why
08:31:45 <Mike J> CraigC I had a friend who had to go to decafeinated (sp?) because of that. I'm not sure I could exist in that world
08:32:10 <CraigC> Mike J, I mix half decaf in mine, or my heart would explode
08:32:23 <Ryan> Mike J - it sucks. I went decaf once about three years ago.
08:32:46 <Mike J> two-thirds a pot each morning. Doing okay so far.
08:33:00 <Mike J> But I'm still waiting for that other shoe to drop.
08:33:06 <KorbenC(T-27)> adios yall, time for my last day of school, lol
08:33:12 <CraigC> I usually can't finish a 20oz diet coke in the afternoon or I feel like I am having a panic attack
08:34:14 <Mike J> I will say that it is generally nothing but water after about noon. (Except in the evening when it can be tequila time.)
08:34:31 <CraigC> lol
08:34:51 <CraigC> my stomach can't take that anymore either.... basically just a beer or 2
08:34:54 <Kat> Mike J, hahaha
08:35:11 <Ryan> That shoe dropped for me about a month ago. I had an interaction between caffeine and a prescribed medication and went to the ER thinking I was having a heart attck.
08:35:19 <Kat> KorbenC(T-27), bye Korben
08:35:30 <Ryan> I've had to reshuffle both substances.
08:35:58 <CraigC> acid reflux in the middle of the night is about the scariest stuff I have gone thru.... choking
08:36:05 <Mike J> Ran, Yeah, fascinating/scary things happen in some of those interactions.
08:36:36 <Ryan> At first they didn't take me seriously: a trim and fit looking 27 year old male having a heart attack?
08:36:55 <Ryan> When I told them I had an ADHD script they took it a bit more seriously.
08:37:25 <CraigC> my guess is that in not many years people will be having heart issues way younger because of Red Bull craze
08:37:30 <Mike J> Funny, I walk in an old, overweight guy, and they assume bad things are happening. Even if I'm just visiting someone else.
08:37:55 <Ryan> I agree Craig.
08:38:03 <Kat> Ryan, it does happen
08:38:35 <Ryan> Thankfully I did not have a heart attack - but I had every symptom minus the heavy sweating.
08:38:50 <CraigC> I tried Adderol for my ADHD a couple of years ago, and it is like having too much caffeine at times. I only took it occasionally for a couple of months and then stopped
08:38:54 <Ryan> When pain began going from my back down to my left elbow I got pretty scared.
08:38:57 <Kat> CraigC, I had that too - can't get a breath!
08:39:28 <Ryan> Yeah that is what I have. I have it in an extremely low dose and only take it on days I really, really, need it - my ADHD can be genuinely debilitating.
08:39:48 <CraigC> I worry that if I kept taking it, it would lead to me having heart problems
08:40:15 <Ryan> Same. I keep my coffee level low enough that if I need to take the adderall I just dont have coffee that day
08:40:26 <Ryan> because I simply can not do both.
08:40:38 <Kat> Micah is hanging with Anemone this morning
08:41:24 <Mike J> "Hanging with Anemone" sounds like a weird gardening show.
08:41:31 <CraigC> if only we knew some visitor to send over there to tell Micah that there are better geysers to look at
08:41:40 <Kat> Mike J, LOL
08:41:53 <Kat> CraigC, agree
08:42:01 <Mike J> Yeah, CraigC, just try and pry him away.
08:42:06 <CraigC> LOL
08:42:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> At least it erupts.
08:42:23 <CraigC> have the visitor with hidden video camera and mic to get the reaction
08:42:43 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, morning
08:43:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Morning
08:43:50 <Ryan> This protein-fruit-veggie only diet is pretty great. Physically and mentally. It's hard to regulate thoughts and emotions when your insides are constantly revolting.
08:46:59 <CraigC> oh good, Scott is in the park
08:47:48 <Kat> Saw that earlier
08:49:01 <Kat> Not much happening this morning
09:01:20 <Kat> Morning Greg
09:02:01 <Greg (working)> Gmorning Kat, Hope you have a great day and keep smiling
09:02:40 <Kat> Same to you! Family arriving from Denver today
09:03:54 <Kat> Oh Boy!
09:04:34 <Greg (working)> Kool beans, have a blast with them
09:04:42 <Kat> Plate ie
09:05:35 <CraigC> I don't know if I have ever seen that
09:06:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My brother was here last weekend. I took him to the museum and he got to drive the switcher engine for an hour. It was pretty fun.
09:06:15 <Ryan> There used to be a geyser just right of Plate called "Slot"
09:06:53 <Ryan> In 2014 the two would shift water and energy back and forth like Grand and Turban. Slot would erupt on every shift it got until eventually Plate erupted and both geysers quit.
09:07:45 <Ryan> Slot was impressive. Some of its eruptions were 15+ft. The crater and eruption plume resembled Fantail, the behavior was like Plume.
09:09:19 <Ryan> I think there was disagreement on if Slot had one vent with a sinter bridge over it or if it had two vents, or if it was two features. After seeing 20+ eruptions, I am solidly in the sinter bridge camp.
09:09:28 <Greg (working)> Off to work I go, enjoy, see you all at 1600 hours.
09:09:43 <Kat> Greg (working), have a great day!
09:09:53 <Ryan> https://www.flickr.com/photos/131878030@N04/40348404125/in/photolist-24ts7Q6
09:10:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice Slot picture.
09:11:26 <Kat> Just caught the end of Tardy
09:11:39 <Ryan> Thanks. Despite seeing so many, I never got a photo of Plate
09:14:15 <Mike J> Everyone have fun.
09:25:12 <Anemone> Kat.... Careful please. Lol
09:25:49 <Kat> Did I make an error?
09:26:41 <Anemone> Thanks for correcting the 2nd entry!
09:26:48 <Anemone> Did you see my note on the first.
09:27:19 <Kat> Some one else flagged it and I now don't know what I did wrong!
09:27:36 <Anemone> No worries!
09:27:55 <Anemone> Big
09:28:22 <Kat> I had already changed it
09:28:36 <Anemone> Thx!
09:28:45 <Anemone> No harm no foul.
09:28:53 <Anemone> I was just very confused haha.
09:29:04 <Kat> :)
09:29:11 <Anemone> "I knew I was chatting with visitors but I didn't think i was THAT distracted."
09:30:07 <Kat> I made the mistake because I was looking from a wide distance -saw it as Little when I zoomed in.
09:31:10 <Anemone> Littke is being wierd today anyways.
09:31:52 <Anemone> Just blow up my phone if giantess erupts behind me.
09:31:56 <CraigC> those were the most difficult ones for me to distinguish without being fully zoomed in
09:32:00 <Anemone> Toodles. Back to the grind.
09:32:06 <Kat> Hahaha! Will do
09:32:24 <Kat> Anemone, have a good one!
09:32:56 <Kat> CraigC, I know that so not sure why I entered it
09:33:37 <CraigC> Betty is good at telling them apart from anywhere
09:34:59 <Kat> :thumbsup:
09:35:32 <Kat> Guess it's a skill I need to work on!:lol:
09:36:12 <CraigC> or it might just be she has better eyes
09:36:45 <Kat> Now that could be true - it is time to get these old eyes checked !
09:38:36 <Kat> OF zzzzzzzzz
09:42:46 <Kat> OF
09:49:36 <CraigC> my daughter is going with her boyfriend's family to YNP in July, and was asking which places to show them other than OF. One of the spots was Biscuit and watching Jewel. :)
09:50:00 <Kat> :thumbsup:
09:50:11 <Kat> I think Norris too
09:51:21 <CraigC> I also suggested walking to Ojo Caliente, then Firehole Spring, and Red Spouter
09:51:59 <CraigC> Red Spouter could be dry in July, though
09:52:59 <Kat> I think you should go and be their guide! :)
09:53:22 <CraigC> lol.... then they would be sitting at Grotto the entire time
09:53:34 <Kat> LOL
09:54:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lone Star would be good.
09:54:19 <Kat> Then they could just leave you there and come back later
09:54:29 <CraigC> are all 40 species of biting insects gone by July?
09:54:33 <Kat> Lone Star is a good suggestion
09:54:52 <Kat> Never been in July - don't know
09:55:31 <CraigC> Wm and I went a couple of times in the warmer period and got chewed up pretty good
09:55:52 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, I'm leaving you Grand Daisy and maybe Bee
09:56:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No Aurum?
09:56:10 <Kat> I would imagine they are not good CraigC,
09:56:27 <Kat> Looks like Grotto
09:56:46 <CraigC> deer flies, horse flies, mosquitoes and some tiny little biters
09:57:36 <Kat> Sorry Kevin - thats your job! LOL
09:59:43 <Greg (working)> Did I hear Aurum?
10:00:01 <Greg (working)> Thanks for driving Kat.
10:00:18 <Greg (working)> Good luck Kevin, hope you get bee
10:00:20 <Kat> hahahaha - Kevin is going to conjure Aurum up today
10:00:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well Perry Mason is playing.
10:00:53 <Kat> Greg (working), yw - Have a good drive Kevin
10:31:23 <CraigC> tardy
10:35:50 <Kat> Wow Kevin brought some snow!
10:38:11 <Greg (working)> Kool beans
10:44:25 <Mario> That's a stalwart group there waiting on Grand... I'm sure they are really hoping it erupts soon!
10:45:25 <Kat> sunny at west
10:50:14 <Greg (working)> Kat, sunny and lots of vehicles at west
10:57:06 <Kat> Greg (working), :thumbsup:
11:11:12 <canyon> trip of a lifetime and it snows, and no coat
11:42:00 <CraigC> :grand:
12:16:34 <CraigC> :daisy:
12:22:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thought you would enjoy this Craig: https://www.scaletrains.com/rivet-counter-ho-scale-emd-gp30-union-pacific-nevada-state-railroad-museum-844.html
12:24:24 <CraigC> Kevin L™ 🌵, good looking
12:27:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They came and measured our engine and are doing it in present version including the wrong gray paint color. Check out the product details tab. Pretty stunning.
12:41:34 <KorbenC(T-27)> Hey Kat, are you still here?
12:42:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hey Korben, we changed our train to the 2:40 run on Pike's Peak. Same day and seats though.
12:44:50 <KorbenC(T-27)> Tell me the day again? I will add it to my calendar this time and not onto a sticky note, lol
12:45:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is August 20th.
12:45:59 <KorbenC(T-27)> I will be waiting for you on top
12:48:18 <Betty> hi all
12:48:31 <KorbenC(T-27)> Betty, hi
12:48:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
12:49:02 <Betty> hey Korben, how goes your recovering?
12:49:09 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵
12:49:27 <KorbenC(T-27)> Betty, great. Climbing tommorow and YNP late June
12:49:49 <Betty> wow, you can go climbing?
12:50:10 <KorbenC(T-27)> Betty, as long as I dont do too much
12:50:11 <Betty> well, young bones...
12:51:03 <KorbenC(T-27)> Very true, only been 8 weeks and I am pretty much back to normal
12:51:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Make sure the weather is clear
12:51:44 <KorbenC(T-27)> Kevin L™ 🌵, good weather is optional
12:54:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> of
13:04:13 <CraigC> Betty, howdy
13:14:46 <Betty> hey CraigC
13:15:46 <CraigC> been out playing in the sprinkler with the dog.... we have the only labrador in the world that is skittish around sprinklers
13:16:09 <Betty> hahaha, cool
13:16:53 <CraigC> Betty, been meaning to ask, did you ever follow German F1 driver M Schumacher?
13:17:26 <Betty> Michael or Mick?
13:17:35 <CraigC> Michael
13:17:47 <linda> grettings all
13:17:52 <CraigC> hey Linda
13:17:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Linda
13:17:59 <Betty> hi Linda
13:18:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Is Monte Carlo this weekend?
13:18:48 <CraigC> Kevin L™ 🌵, yes, my least favorite LOL
13:18:52 <Betty> It was hard not to get notice of him when he was an active driver
13:19:15 <linda> CraigC, hi
13:19:18 <linda> Betty, hi
13:19:21 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
13:19:22 <CraigC> Betty, the family put out a really nice documentary on him this last year, did you see it?
13:19:45 <Betty> no, not yet. But I want to see it
13:19:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is the only F1 I watch. Did you see there is going to be one on the Strip next year?
13:20:05 <Betty> really?
13:20:28 <CraigC> Kevin L™ 🌵, I didn't see that, maybe I will try to get there for it. My friend has been trying to talk me into going to the one in Montreal, as he can get tickets
13:20:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think they have a 2 year deal inked with possibilities for more.
13:21:09 <Betty> my nephew was at Barcelona race last weekend
13:21:12 <CraigC> Monte Carlo doesn't have good passing sections, it is really claustrophobic, IMO
13:21:58 <CraigC> Betty, I am watching Barcelona right now. I have the cheap F1 pass where I have to wait 24+ hours to watch it
13:22:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I really don't like road courses but I have been watching Monte Carlo since I was a kid.
13:22:15 <Betty> :thumbsup:
13:22:31 <CraigC> this is a really good track
13:23:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I would like to see them on the Bristol dirt track. :)
13:24:08 <CraigC> I wonder if they could run on Laguna Seca. That is my favorite Superbike track
13:24:50 <CraigC> the Corkscrew might be too much, but I don't even know
13:26:42 <CraigC> Betty, Mick is decent, but nowhere near the same ballpark of how his dad was when he started out
13:27:08 <CraigC> Michael was great right at the beginning in F1
13:27:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.las-vegas-grand-prix-everything-you-need-to-know-about-f1s-newest-race.7HD0mpbF6pjSFsNatKZTwH.html
13:30:29 <CraigC> Kevin L™ 🌵, wow.... I wonder if rooms are already selling out that have views over the track
13:35:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I bet you won't find any for $49.95 a night.
13:36:14 <CraigC> lol
13:36:44 <CraigC> maybe today they are..... then like during the eclipse, they cancel the reservations right before
13:37:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I bet they already know and are selling them bow
13:37:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> now
13:38:17 <CraigC> I agree... just joking about the BS that happened for people that got screwed
13:39:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I know what you mean. Luckily that I put in early reservations on the eclipse and it wasn't cancelled. Of course it was my Daughter's apartment...
13:40:12 <Betty> hahaha
13:41:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Made the tuition well worth while the previous years.
13:46:32 <Betty> fun, Micah posted lots of Anemones
15:03:31 <Betty> people off BW
15:03:45 <Betty> they followed the bison
15:04:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bison will put them back.
15:04:31 <Betty> lol
15:06:07 <Betty> wow, they were really close
15:07:23 <Betty> pfffffff
15:07:40 <CraigC> wowowow
15:07:51 <Betty> that is a really kind one. They were so close to touch it
15:11:11 <Betty> I cannot believe how close they were
15:11:46 <CraigC> I can't believe the bison tolerated it
15:12:37 <Betty> yeah
15:20:29 <Betty> bull fight
15:20:34 <CraigC> are those two playing or battling
15:21:04 <Betty> playing
15:21:49 <CraigC> Betty, did you hear about the 3-year-old Obsidian griz that got killed by the boar the other day?
15:22:21 <Betty> no, I did not
15:23:06 <CraigC> did you see the video last year that Darcie shot of the griz charging the tourist at Roaring Mountain, with the 2 cubs?
15:23:36 <Betty> no
15:24:15 <CraigC> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vJJKPT4ESk
15:25:21 <Betty> thx
15:25:43 <CraigC> my mom and I observed them in 2019 when there were 3 brand new Cubs, one went missing that week, now 2 are gone
15:28:14 <Betty> those 2 still "playing"
15:29:02 <Betty> I´d never be that cloe to 2 raging bison
15:29:12 <Betty> *close
15:48:21 <Betty> I call it a day, night all
15:48:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> night
15:57:45 <Greg 🤠> Kevin, let me know when you have released the controls, please and thank you.
15:58:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Released
15:58:33 <Greg 🤠> ok, thanks for driving.

16:04:33 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, I'll leave it for you tomorrow
16:10:38 <linda> Greg 🤠, love your funny comments on email >(
16:12:30 <Greg 🤠> Thanks Linda, we all need a little humor. But then a military grade ...
16:13:36 <linda> we should have asked for a heater to melt the icicles >(
16:16:08 <Greg 🤠> Good point, update your email
16:16:23 <linda> :)
16:16:28 <Greg 🤠> lol

17:23:05 <Greg 🤠> OK, I thought it was the first week of June.
17:23:17 <Greg 🤠> John is covering 2 of my shifts, 2 more still open.

17:29:11 <linda> KorbenC(T-27), no, not until Aug 29th
17:29:17 <KorbenC(T-27)> :thumbsup:
17:29:28 <linda> KorbenC(T-27), I saw you were going, that's great
17:29:52 <KorbenC(T-27)> hopefully Beehive figures itself out
17:30:02 <Greg 🤠> Original, this trip was my retirement trip. So now I am prob looking at the end of the year. Could go sooner, but work part time for a year or two. Stock market/401 will tell me that haha
17:30:08 <linda> KorbenC(T-27), that would be nice, 2-3 day intervals stink
17:30:53 <Greg 🤠> I hope Aurum figures it self out
17:31:10 <CraigC> I'm glad I spent a lot of my 401k before this last crash. It may still get worse
17:31:18 <linda> Greg 🤠, I hope it works out as soon as possible
17:31:24 <Greg 🤠> That is what I am afraid of
17:32:02 <linda> yeah I hate to watch the numbers
17:43:48 <Greg 🤠> :daisy:
17:44:03 <Greg 🤠> :daisy:
18:02:32 <Greg 🤠> Is that snow or huge rain drops
18:02:41 <Greg 🤠> Or bugs?
18:05:30 <KorbenC(T-27)> Greg 🤠, Yes :P
18:06:20 <Greg 🤠> OF time

18:47:38 <Greg 🤠> Nope, but I guess it is my turn. haha
18:48:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hope it treats you better in a couple of weeks.
18:48:39 <Greg 🤠> I would love to see Bee and Aurum
18:51:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good shot at Bee but not so much Aurum.
19:14:34 <KorbenC(T-27)> That is one longggg Ob
19:14:48 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
19:42:27 <linda> Greg 🤠, Bee was great in person, had to wait 5 hrs for it but it was worth it
19:46:44 <Greg 🤠> Linda, kool.
19:46:49 <KorbenC(T-27)> Greg 🤠, Beehive is probable if you spend a few days in basin and within walking range of it. Aurum not so much :P
19:47:54 <linda> Greg 🤠, next day I saw it again, but from castle area, ran out of patience to wait
19:48:32 <Greg 🤠> ANd this trip that is not in the cards. two of our party has never been to YNP and they want to see as much as the can of the entire park.
19:48:55 <linda> Greg 🤠, can't blame them I would too
19:49:41 <linda> Grand was cool, I saw that twice also
19:49:50 <Greg 🤠> US too. We have added two each new 150-600 lenses and inexpensive spotting scopes.
19:49:55 <linda> My niece got to see it too, so that was cool
19:50:21 <linda> Greg 🤠, nice
20:00:30 <linda> arty maybe
20:12:44 <Greg 🤠> Jake thought grand was going to be early
20:48:34 <Greg 🤠> Grand is taking it's sweet old time
20:57:30 <Greg 🤠> Have a great night and keep smiling. 12 more sleeps for us.
