I only have the one medium sized short haired dog, and he is my constant companion and alarmist. He goes where I go and waits in the truck. So if it is extremely hot or cold I don't go. It is amazing how many people only know me as "the guy with the dog".
I have a few. Don't wanna put on here what they look like. They're odd breeds. Don't want a stalker to find us, hehe! I wouldn't hesitate to shoot someone who came up on my land to hurt my kids.. Don't think I'd hesitate to shoot anyone these days anyway, the looks of things.....

You have a good night. Hope to chat tomorrow!

I guess I should not have chatted about dogs and fishing. I dreamed I caught a scaly, green thing that looked like a dog. And you folks think that other posters are crazy. hehehe

When I was young, we did catch something in the rivers we called a "mud puppY" or sometimes a "water dog". It was a fishy thing with feet but I have not seen anything like that in many years. I might Google to see if I can find "mud puppy" or "water dog".

Interesting. Both mud puppy and water dog are there. It says they are a brownish colored salamanders that live in rivers and ponds and can crawl on the bottom with their feet, or hold the feet against the body for swimming.

Maybe I am not so crazy after all. hehehe

Oh yep, the good ol' water dog. Lol. Mean rascals with sharp teeth. My dad caught one of those things on a trot line. I was in the 7th grade in town school. The old one room school was in the country and had grades 1-6. I took that water dog to school for a Science project. The teachers had never seen anything like it. They put it in a 10 gal aquarium with some water rocks and things like that. It wasn't dead but in a couple of days that thing started stinking. LOL. It stunk up the entire class room. I don't know what they did with that thing, but it disappeared. It was worse than my poopie drawers. LOL.

Hi Blueminer, 3:30 am here and dog is out to the tree. We never got Castor Oil very often, but Cod Liver oil was quite regular. As for worms, we had an outhouse and Mom usually took a hoe and looked for herself. LOL Once I swallowed a dime and she retreived it and washed it off and I recycled it at the country store for a RC Cola and a Moon Pie. LOL
Oh, my!! I thought everyone was kidding with the worm stories. You guys really got worms??? Where from??? Never heard that stuff before. Where I grew up, there was only the occasional kid that got pin worms, and the moms knew because the kid itched in a certain place. Pin worms came out only at night, so moms would tape over a certain place and then examine the removed tape. But there were never worms in poop that you could see with the naked eye. OOOOOOhhhhh. I'm getting the creepy crawlies.

Kids now days have got it made. My second cousin, the one that that used to hide in the weeds with me and laugh as our dads would casterate the pigs, had to be circumcised when he was a teen. An old country doctor, no medication and a scapel, you get the picture. LOL. It took eight grown ups to hold him down for the procedure. He said he thought he was going to die and wished he could. LOL. I bet those pigs would liked to have been watching.
OUch, ouch, ouch! You lived through some barbaric times.

I can't spell it but we got something called assophitity bags that we wore around our neck to keep down colds. If we got one, we wore a plaster made from hot mustard and Vick's salve. Cloverine Salve was used a lot too. It was nothing more than petroleum jelly with a better smell, so was Rosebud salve. They even put some of either one of those on old Bossy's dried and cracking udders.
I was a Vick's salve kid. I remember the mustard plaster, but it was used for sore backs, as I recall

When I first moved into the house here, we had some strange looking lizards that came on the deck or sunned themselves right up on the wall of our brick house. They were pretty big, and ran fast, up on their legs when they ran. A neighbor called them "dragons" but did not know what the real name was. Haven't seen them here in the last 10 years, but I wonder if anybody knows what I am talking about.

Country folk quite often got intestinal parasites or worms mainly from untreated drinking water and were more prevalent in children. Pin worms are visible in bowel movements and generally only came out at night when the child is less active, but that is/was not always the case. The tape on the hiney was simply a removal, but not a cure.

For more info you may Google pin worms or tape worms. There was a little purple pill with an extremely bad taste similar to the "Walko" tablets they added to the chicken water. But those cost money and home remedies of turpentine, kerosene (coal oil), moonshine, and whiskey were used and added to sugar or sorghum molasses to make it more tasty. No kidding.

One must be able to absorb said knowledge as well as read it and realize that the life stages of an "Aunt" only begins when a neice is born. Thus far, Google is free and does not collect dust and offers immediate results without thumbing through volumes of material. Sorry, no sale.

Crown Royal and Raz-ma-taz (Cinnamon Schnapps) and blended ice. Usually served in a shot glass.

I bet we all have worms! LOL There are some who have new natural health remedies that are advertised. There is one woman...can't think of her name, she was on tv a lot talking about it. That was just a couple years ago when I saw her. Let me look it up...

Good morning everybody!:)

I learn something every day. It's no wonder that the children didn't get sick from the "cure." The tape on the hiney was only a diagnostic method used by moms before stool specimens were sent to the doctor for analysis. After the pin worms were discovered, there was a medicine that the children took (certainly not shine or white lightenin) as we called it back in the day.
