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.
Here I was tooting how I love my country living and then I read your post and I realize that good health and being alive is sooooo much more. I do hope your health is good now. It's my guess it is if you are interested in courting... Lol. And I'm glad you haven't " bought the farm" . May God bless and keep you!

It is very windy here and just finished up with the torrents of rain. Guess my hens have cooled off enough as we just gathered a "pink" egg. No eggs at all during this heat...
About living simple. It's lots if work. Now I gotta drain out the rowboat....on and on. I know all of you know exactly what I mean! Lol

Hi, folks. It's been wet and wild here. Hope no one blew away. Lightning knocked out my computer for a short while. I had a flooded "pond" near the end of the driveway, where the water overflowed the culvert. There were about 50 blackbirds using it for a cool-off 'bird bath.' The air is much cooler now, and Anne's and AW's hens are surely happier.@Imposter: I'm so glad that you are better now. I know exactly how you feel. I almost "bought the farm" a year ago, and health and life is so much more important to me right now. I will keep you in my prayers for you to continue to be well.

Not to make light of anyone's health..please don't take this as such...but there seems to be a lot of farms for sale ...lol

Thankfully my health is still good but there has been several times accidents could've/should've happened and we were spared. After doing a 360 on ice-which included hitting a ditch bank that prevented us from flipping over--we sat in silence until my grandson spoke in a soft voice, "Grandma, are we dead?"

A positive attitude that sure will keep you going;) I wish you better health and luck in love. Your heart sure is big; may you find someone to help build up the fires:) You can never be too old to court a good thing. Hehe.

storm passed through here about 5 pm but no damage except power loss for a few minutes. I don't have a/c so that did not matter and besides there was nothing but junk on the tv anyways. I did get my chickens back up before it got real bad except for 2 little guys. They kept running around and around the building in the rain but would not go through the door. LOL

My smaller chickens are funny. They gather up right under my feet and if I am wearing sandals, they peck my toes and if I have regular shoes on they untie my shoe laces. Sometimes I step on their feet and they squawk but keep coming back for more.

looks like the judge is Johnny-on-the-spot hitting my post that has only been up for 7 minutes. Sure glad I did not make them wait too long LOL

Maybe they are like my little chickens and squawk but keep coming back for more. LOL

Two years within to study these 52000 year old cypresses. Quite an interesting story if the area is studied. I really hope the researchers get their grant before it's too late. The trunks' girth are around two meters around. Interesting find.
Raining intermittently in eastern Ky., temp. lower tonight. Steamy last night. Nice day as well as night.
Hopefully, the weather gets calm and stays that way for a while. The birds have been depleting the feeder faster than I can supply the seeds. They sure were creating a ruckus under the tree yesterdaynupon realizing there was no more food. Lol. Guess, they like easy pickings;)

Thanks for the well wishes folks. Like wolf said some never know how good they have it till its about over.
I can do without pork chops for breakfast and force down plain oatmeal...eat more grass (salad) I guess.
I had some fine neighbors welcome me home, they said the holler just wouldn't be the same without me causing trouble up in here....
Abeliever if you were one mile closer- my old international harvester might would make it there.
I intend to live life to the fullest while I can, hope you all do the same.
Stay away from that bacon! It'll kill you! But dang if it aint good.
Get out and do something fun today, I am going to sleep a little while longer and do just that.

It sounds like you have had the same issues as I did with having to stay off bacon and eating more grass. I traded the bacon for exercise including acquiring and reworking the old homestead and raising chickens and parking somewhere besides the front door at Walmart. But I have been at it now for 4+ years and life ain't all that bad. In fact LIFE IS GOOD. May GOD bless you just as HE has blessed me.

Goodness knows I've passed over this thread many times and tonite I'm so glad I didn't. I found out a good long time back it has more than "birds" in it and a while ago I got a ray of sunshine from it after reading all the blue-sad-and-bad news in all the other forums around here. Just wanted to thankx to all of you.

@Mississippi Man. I am a recent newcomer to this thread and much like you I past over this thread many times. It has its trolling problems, yes, but then that's part of life in general! Who among us hasn't had "foxes in the hen house" so to speak. Aggravating, but not boring! Lol
The bird threaders are a congenial group and seem to welcome all good posters. Be sure to stop by and let us get acquainted!
Btw, there's a few on here that love a great debate and love to bring spice to the table! Soooo, feel free to disagree!!! Lol

Big fat question from my corner::
While I have never lived in the hills and hollers of Kentucky I have been there several times. Now your neighbors said the holler wouldn't be the same without you.( is that a backhanded compliment?). So apparently you live in a holler. This IH you have, you actually have enough level space to do more than just turn it in circles? Maybe you have an empty house seat and have planted a garden? Lol

Okay, I'm being rude. My most sincere apologies.:-)

Good Morning to Everyone! It's a beautiful morning!!

Nothing wrong with being a Loner,STFU. Sometimes it's better talking to yourself than sparring with so called "friends." Unless you have a truly good friend that you trust and beyond all else accept you for whom and what you are.
Just read an article about the abuse of Tennessee Walker horses by an owner in Tennessee. A very sick individual chaining and burning the ankles of his horses as well as hitting them with prods. At least, he's out of business for certain.
Lovely day! Bless you All.
