Help stop the USDA Wildlife Services by contacting your senators and congressman. This government agency takes private industry jobs and competes against the private sector.

Lovely day in the neighborhood and now we are blessed with more rain. I got wet closing up the chickens, but it saved on filling the old wash tub for the Saturday Night bath. I was not looking forward to shampooing with lye soap anyways.

LOL, I remember the using the old washtub at my grandparents' home, when I was a kid. The youngest took the last bath. Yuck. I could have used some lye soap last night. I was working outside yesterday, and fell asleep on the couch before I took a shower. I woke up a couple of hours later, itching like heck. CHIGGERS!! Those are nasty critters that you can't even see...not to mention the ticks. We pay for the mild winters with an explosion in the insect population. I never knew what chiggers were until I got the nasty surprise when I moved down here.

Wow people are waking up. Let others know. This practice is not good for wildlife or people.
Most of us are "awake" on this thread, but the question is, what can we do about it? Writing to our representatives has been to no avail thus far. The big corporations such as Monsanto have way too much power, and PACs give lots of money to people running for office, We all know who wins out where money is an issue.

The "storm" is never really over. When one ends, storm clouds gather for another.

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.
If you hate oatmeal, try the cereal, "Just Bunches," which is a whole oat ingredient of the cereal "Honey Bunches of Oats." It is pretty good mixed with Yoplait light yogurt. If you must eat oatmeal, you might try adding just a little bit of brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook your own oatmeal, and don't buy the instant pouches. That way, you can control the amount of brown sugar that you add. The pouches have too much sugar, and probably contain preservatives that you don't need.

Stein's tastes are getting too expensive. He waits for the good stuff, like the occasional piece of steak. Nevertheless, we don't have that too often here. It's usually catch is as catch can.

I was just thnking about the old days with the washtub and Saturday night bath and lye soap. We had no electricity or running water back then and water had to be carried from the spring and heated on the old woodburning stove and that even in the summer. So Saturday was too often for me LOL Summer time, I just skipped the dirty bath water from the sisters and took a bar of soap to the creek.

I think I was 12 year old before I had my own bath water. LOL Since I only had sisters back then and I had to pack the water in and out and did not even get to use it first. POOH. I also had to pack their thunder mug out in the mornings and I never could understand why they could not just go to the tree like I did. LOL

I haven't had a steak in sooo long and now my mouth is watering for a good steak. That is what I'll have tomorrow for Sunday dinner! lately my diet has been mostly chicken, fish, and hamburger and now, like the Eagles sing, its time for a cool change....

Back in the old days...our hot water was heated in the teakettle and we took our "baths" from a pan in the kitchen sink. Ivory soap is what mom bought. It made me itch. I probably didnt get all the soap washed off. Lol
The outhouse was about 50 feet from the house. A two seater! But we were always uptown cos we had rolls of real toilet paper and at grandmas there was the old sears catalog. At one point grandmas outhouse had a resident pet crow that could say " Hello"!
Our inside bathroom was furnished with a white enameled bucket(?) and lid. We used this at night and during inclement weather. Grandma and Grandpa had a a small bathroom installed in the late fifties but our house didn't get one till around 1965. Times, how they have changed!

I don't necessarily hate oatmeal but I love all things pork and beef LOL. I am making the changes just fine, trying to eat to live instead of live to eat. I wonder what the good Lord has for me yet to do on his earth? I guess I'll hang around as long as I can.
I went out this morning and looked around, listened to the birds, looked at the fireball bushes and lilac trees, and had to pray my thanks right there on the spot, this is some fine country I walk on folks. Fine fine country. Man cannot come close to the masters works. I am glad to be here for a spell yet.

My great granny was Cherokee and Irish; I was expecting her outhouse to be rough because of her working outside all the time. Boy, was I surprised when at 5 years old I walked in her outhouse and found nice, burgundy carpet.Lol. I never saw another outfitted like hers.We had an old metal bucket and a rickety, wooden one.No carpeting.

I still have that white granite thunder mug with a lid with a red ring around the lid. It is just a conversation piece-collectable these days. I also have a similar colored water dipper that hangs on my wall. It was used to dip water from the metal water bucket and every one drank from it. There was also one hanging out by the spring where you could get a drink of cold spring water, but it rusted away years ago. They sold patches for those things in those days. It was just a small round beveled piece of metal with a fat screw that plugged any leak holes.

Old antique beds set higher off the floor so that the thunder mug could sit under the bed and not be tripped over when one got out of the bed wearing their Union Suit with a trap door in the back of the long johns.

A murder of crows have been harassing a falcon all morning. No wonder they call it a murder of crows. It looks like a regular old aerial battle will continue to be pitched until the young falcon leaves the territory. I dont think he done a thing to those crows. Maybe the crows are in cahoots with the rabbits?
