Good evening, my fine feathered friends. I see that Roaming is still awake, as am I. I've been a little under the weather, both literally and figuratively, but I DO plan to drop in more often.
My new horse arrived, and I still haven't ridden her yet. She was neglected prior to being donated to the adoption agency, where I found her. I need to put about 75 pounds on her before she will be at a desirable weight. But she has been well-mannered and very gentle so far. We'll see what happens when I try to ride her for the first time. She doesn't even mind my dogs. Two of my outside dogs, one of whom is over 100 pounds, panicked at the approaching storm yesterday, and when I opened the stall door, they both scurried in and refused to leave. The horse didn't even bat an eyelash at sharing her stall with these two strange-looking 'horses'.

I'm glad to see that my old friends have been keeping up with the thread. My garden is growing slowly but surely, and the recent rain helped. It also helped the weeds grow.
I still have tons of birds in my yard. They eat side by side with the dogs, who gladly share their kibble. Needless to say, we go through dog food very quickly.

Hope that those of you who are tucked snugly in your beds have a restful sleep. I will be up on and off through the night, as usual. I sympathize with Roaming for having the same issues that I do.

Will talk to you all tomorrow. Love and Prayers, Lala.

Got a call today from my dozer man telling me about some geodes free for the taking. I'm 70 geodes richer!! Small mishap: took a step to get closer to a certain geode and found myself almost ankle deep in mud. It was the second time I'd worn these new shoes:-(
It was a great day and I had a great visit with my company! Roaming you certainly worked late today! Hope you get some good rest tonight!
Geodes are very interesting rock formations. There are tons of them on my farm. Some are naturally open, and you can see the crystals inside. Others remain whole, just waiting to be split and polished.

@ Roaming; it sure was a "Drink Water" kind of day! Way too hot for me! Luv that ac!
@ AW: please be assured I am forever grateful to all the bird threaders that joined in the great chicken hunt while laying low waiting for the "storm " to pass . Lol. Have a good night!
Hi Anne, I see you posted about geo rocks. I have all kinds I need to get rid of lol! We go to the creek frequently & I started collecting them for a flower bed, but ended up just using other material after bringing home all kinds of rocks! Haha oh well, maybe ill find something to do with them or someone who can use them! Have a great night everyone! God bless!

In Mercer County near Shaker Village, there is an old abandoned country grocery where the entire building is made of geodes and mortar. Dog says "Hello" to Stein, but that is nothing special. He has said "hello" to nearly everything tonight. lol

You are up very early this morning. Must be dog/tree time. LOL That country store sounds like an interesting piece of architecture. There was a house in MA. made from hand-hewn logs, and all the windows were made from beer bottles. Somebody must have been very thirsty.

Dog had a restless night. He kept wanting to visit the tree but did not want to go out in the rain. LOL

....and a Good Morning to everyone!
It's been a great day so far! Found the missing hen under the shed and lured her out with a handful of scratch. My roadside finds from last night---9 white plastic chairs and a porch swing frame--turned out great! Just need to wash them off with some elbow grease!
It's nice to see the regulars on here again! And I'm jealous of the geodes that lala has! AW, that old grocery store would be something I'd love to see. How close to Shaker Village? It'd be a nice trip. Maybe an overnight trip.
When we visited Prince Edward Island there was a small chapel built entirely of bottles! Very impressive! Thousands of bottles!
Y'all have a great day! I'm off to breakfast.

"Shaker Village at PLeasant Hill" is at the intersection of U.S. 68 and Ky. Hwy 33 going toward the community of Burgin. That village has been restored and they have excellent dining, a visitor's center, gift shop, grounds touring, and overnight lodging in some of the old community quarters. The village sits atop the hills a few miles past the Kentucky River (with large limestone Palisades also worth viewing and a boat ride down the river to view those Palisades, wild life, and such) and is where the Shakers once took their goods down river to sell. The old Geode store is a couple of miles from the Shaker Village, but I can't remember if it is going back east on U.S. 68 toward Lexington or Southwest on Ky 33 toward Burgin.

You can read about the Shakers and Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill online. While in the area, you might also want to go on about 6 miles to the town of Harrodsburg to see Old Fort Harrod which was one of Kentucky's original forts. Traveling on Hwy 33 through the town of Burgin, you will come to Danville and can visit "Constitution Square" where the original constitution for the state was initiated. Also, that is the same area where Ephraim McDowell performed the first surgery in the state on Jame Todd Crawford. Much History in close proxximity including Perryville Battlefield State Park and Camp Nelson Heritage center where over 10,000 African Americans were inducted into the Union Army after the Emancipation Proclamation. That is also worth a visit.

Stein does the same thing. But if I go out with him, he will do his business pronto. He probably thinks that if he has to get wet, I have to get wet too.

Lol. Hoarder... Lol. Well the chairs will be placed in the crawl space under the house where we go during tornado warnings. So I have a very practical use for them. Swing frame? In a lovely spot in the woods. I may be a "dumb Yankee " but my geodes from Tuesday were free for the taking! Troll on.

Right now I'm residing in the state of my birth: Indiana.

We spent many years living in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Also Minnesota, Louisiana, Wyoming . Then my better half has lived in Rhode Island, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri and Pennsylvania. And yes, I know how to pack to move. Lol

I'm fairly familiar with Danville KY. Constitution square. Centre college is where my daughter attended a summer program years ago. Oh they have a Big Brass Band Concert there every year and I've attended that a couple of times. But I've never done anything with Pleasant Hill. I've been to South Union a couple of times to tour the shaker village there but I know pleasant hill has much more.
