Good Afternoon Miss E. I was enjoying being able to mow grass again for the past 3 hours even though the local weather report calls for more isolated thunderstorms this evening. Now time to enjoy kicking back and watching westerns on TV land with all the commercials pointed toward older folks.
If you did not already know, Alex Trebeck has been supporting Colonial Penn life insurance for over TEN YEARS. I can't wait to see Pat Boone advertise the safe-step walk in tub or the Fonz advertise One Reverse Mortgage. And some folks think this thread is boring. LOL
Hi, AW. Those commercials are a hoot, aren't they. They are also full of hooey. Reverse mortgage, fooey. Sign on the line, and drop dead the next day, and good-bye to leaving anything to the kids. Well, maybe that isn't such a bad idea.
Hope your hens are doing well. This morning, I awoke to a terrible ruckus on my side deck. The porch swing was hitting the side of the house, dogs growling and howling, and the most terrible screeching. I ran outside to find a young ground hog cornered with my 3 outside dogs trying to attack it. I woke hubby with my hollers for help, and out he ran, in his boxers. Hubby grabbed the cat carrier from the garage, and in ran the frightened groundhog. My, oh my, they have big teeth and long, heavy claws. I distracted the dogs while he ferried the critter to the back of the farm, near woods, hayfield, and river. Hubby's adventure wasn't done. The groundhog wouldn't get out of the cat carrier, so hubby gently dumped him out. He dove under the truck and hubby had to chase him around to get him to go off to the woods. With our luck, he'll be back to raid our garden. Hope he takes a few cucumbers. They're growing fast and we have so many, we don't know what to do with them. Neighbors have their own bountiful crop and don't want them either. Feast or famine here. Just another day on the farm. LOL

Good evening folks, It was a beautiful, but very hot day today. My bathroom floor is getting retiled and a couple of kitchen tiles are being replaced. This has been going on for over a week. I have a handyman that is very good, but only does this as a part-time side job, so I have been putting up with the mess for awhile. Dust everywhere.

The new horse that I adopted has put on sufficient weight for me to ride her, and now I only have to wait for the farrier to trim her hooves. She was a neglected animal that was rescued, and I volunteered to get her well. It's been an expensive proposition, but she has responded beautifully. I've got to quit spoiling her. She constantly looks toward the house when I go out, expecting me to come to give her a pat on the neck or some treats. Horses are gorgeous animals, but a lot of work. At least it keeps me busy. I'm not ready for the rocking chair yet, and I'm too old for a rocking horse.

That is one crazy groundhog story! Talk about waking up with a bang! I can just see that groundhog heading for the safety of the cat carrier.(Our cats are more than willing to get out of the carriers though.) Ahh, the quiet, peaceful country life!! Don't 'cha just love it!
Hope your tiling project gets finished soon. I don't have any tile floors at this house but I do like them. Our tile guy for the bath surround and the shower brought his tent and literally camped out so he could work the tile as soon as it was set up. He was pushing to get the job done as soon as he could. Interesting dude . From Canada. With a green card.

It's a tricky day, because you're facing a clash between what you want to doo doo and what you have to doo doo. Unfortunately, it looks as though there isn't much leeway in all this, unless you're prepared to put your doodies to one side and then face the music when you're caught out. It's not a good day to ask for time off work, either, because other people may not be very sympathetic to your request and may even refuse to grant it.

One needs duct tape to go with the hammer. It also works well to cover a pink crack. But it won't stick in the rain, so better watch for that forecast. Chicken poop makes tomatoes grow high and watermelons juicy. LOL

@a believer: that ziplock Baggie/water/pennies trick- I'm gonna definitely try that one!!

Too hot for me today! So. Siesta time around here if hitting the couch and watching a movie in the air conditioned living room counts!

As far as these chickens in my newly painted shed go, yes they require a lot of upkeep. But my grandson enjoys them..even if some of them are too old to lay.. They are fun to sit and watch. He does pretty good checking on them and I will turn over the feeding to him soon-- summer is busy for him as he's at his dads house most of the time. The broilers we used to raise were shipped out at 3-4 pounds(6weeks?) so this long term relationship with the ladies is different in that respect! Lol

“Oh, my god, they’re amazing,” said Coston, who frequently cuddles her chickens.“We have some of the sweetest ones here. They just sit beside you and they let you pet them. And they’re big and dumpy.”

Really, dumpy. I've heard of chickens being referred to as red, white. Laying or not. Pets. I like to eat Rhode Island red chicken eggs as well as a plump chicken. I just can't figure how a red combed, clucking, pooping consistently bird like a chicken could be considered both sweet and dumpy in that context. As for me they're good eats as well as a decent alarm clock that you never have to turn off. Lol.

Ya know, I've lived in about 20 different places. Many times its been in a subdivision/city. Not bad . Enjoyed it, in fact. I've lived in the country on and off for many years. So I can honestly tell you what I prefer.
The place I live now was a clear and conscious choice. I truly enjoy the woods with paths, the field that holds the"Easter flower" patch of the home from long ago and the pond with the old rowboat and the more than ample dock. It makes me glow with contentment watching the grandchildren rush their friends to see the few chickens and perhaps collect an egg or two, then playing a game of tug of war with the dog.. It's great watching them dash across the dock leaping high in the air giving a war whoop to see how much of a splash they can make. And the gazebo tucked down below the steep wooded bank where one can sit with a glass of lemon aid and watch a game of corn hole. Sometimes we watch the neighbors cows with their gentle swishing tails. Frogs, crickets, birds and the occasional train whistle in the far distance. Yep. If this makes me a hillbilly, then that's what I want to be. Oh yeah!

@Anne.. I totally agree with your post. I am honored to be called a Hill-Billy. I have lived in the country and commuted to the city for over 40 years to work.

Many people have asked why I drove so far to work and my reply was "I don't drive this far to work, I drive this far to get away from the city".

Now I am permanently here and only go into town when it is absolutely necessary and I have never had a sip of "Starbucks" in my life nor have I ever driven a BMW. But I have driven a tractor and followed a gas-passing mule. LOL

The simple life is a luxurious one I wholeheartedly agree. Simple because I don't have to worry about a car jacking- not yet anyway- and if partner wants to use a tree like a dog then whiz at it. Gardens, ponds, animals great and small. Squirrels scrambling from branch to branch. Loving this country life;) Sure am Blessed by life's little fortunes.

Great day to All the good Folks! May you have joy throughout the day;)Nature itself is a humbling experience. To enjoy the running brooks and hear all the creatures. Nothing better except the sounds of children's laughter as they partake of the great bounty offered by Mother Earth and truly appreciate what is front of them. I agree, Anne, you and AW have your paradise as far as I can tell. I love your true stories.

Simple life, good life, extravagant life....any life not filled with pain is a good life if you ask me. Life is good, I almost bought the farm recently.
Man oh man I'm glad the good lord decided to let me live a while longer. I had a whole lot of things to do that I didn't even know I needed to do! Weeks and weeks in the hospitable hospital has made old imposter see how good this old shack really is.
I almost checked out for good folks, I am so glad to be alive! I'm going to court me a widow if my ticker will let me LOL, have a nice day. Life is good.

I agree Imposter. I almost bought the farm twice myself a few years ago and I am still here thanks to the Good Lord and the skills of the surgeons and every day is a bonus and nothing else really matters. I will skip courting of the widows though. I am self sufficient and don't need any more responsibilities. But I will enjoy a few widow's company without any courting. LOL Life is very good. We just don't realize how good until it is almost gone.
