I went to take my medicine from miss Cratchet the hatchet, she caught up to us in the common room and I was scolded a little but that's about it. I started to come back with a choice word or two of my own but I held my tongue. It was kind of funny, a 5 foot 6 or so woman all scowling and wagging her finger at me, looking up at me the whole time LOL I'm six five 240lbs so if you can get that picture you can see how ridicules that must have looked. Sam laughed the whole time! LOL.
I am not to leave the facility grounds with him without expressed permission ever again! Or there will be "severe" consequences......So we waited about a half an hour then slipped out and went to eat at Arby's. LMAO We got away with it too. At least we came back stone cold sober this time.
I feel like a schoolboy that played hooky and got away with it.
I wish I could take every ambulatory patient in the whole place and load them up on a big bus and take them all fishing or something. Eh, we can only do what we can do I guess.
Good day.
I sort of knew that Sam would find it funny. If they have an outside area (as most do), maybe take a small cooler of Miller's and hide it in the bushes and then you won't be leaving their "grounds". LOL You have a good night, plus the rest of the good folks. I need to finish up for my dinner and a movie night. Fixing pulled pork bbq and will watch "Glory". BTW, you have me beat. I am only 6'1" and 210 lbs.

@Anne.. my hens are back to being productive

6'5". And 6'1". Wow. I'm 5'1". But hey, my legs reach the ground, so that works!!

@imposter. Glad things worked out. Heeheehee!
You have a good heart. You and AW have been an example to me with the nursing home visits that I just may follow one of these days. Uh, dont think I'll try the beer run though.. Lol
And AW, that BBQ pork sounds so good right now. I had breakfast early on but I am certainly hungry now!! Have you ever had the Moonlite BBQ ? Or the Old Hickory BBQ ? Both in owensboro. When we are there that's where we like to eat.
My hens have managed 2 eggs this week. Both pinkish. The one that lays bluish/green hasn't started back laying. The three that are about 5 months old...shouldn't they start laying soon?

My red maple grew too large and the roots above ground were being hit by the mower with the leaves getting into the gutter.
So, it got cut down. Now looking for a small, good shade pretty tree to do a replacement. Thought about a Japanese Maple , or, a blooming ornamental Pear, as well as a blooming weeping cherry.
Any ideas out there??
I love flowering ornamental trees!! But the Japanese red maple we had in our yard was so beautiful!! Guess I'm not much help... Lol! My vote goes for the flowering ornamental !! Weeping cherry, alas , wouldn't supply much shade

I popped back in while waiting on my date since everything is ready. I have not been to Owensboro in many years. When the wife was still living, we met friends for stage shows at the Executive Inn but we never went anywhere except to the hotel. The showroom was built out into the river.I don't even know if that is still there or if they still have the quality of country music entertainers that they had 10-15 years ago.

Most hens will lay anywhere from 4 to 6 months in age, except in winter. Then they are likely to just wait until spring. Your bluish/green hen is probably an Aracauna that originates out of South America. Does it like to climb on things more than the others? If so, that is probably the breed. I have 18 adult hens that did drop off to about 3 per day, but are now coming back up to 10 or 12 per day. I also have 12 more that are about 5 months old that are not laying yet, but should be by the end of September.

*bluish-green egg layer, not the hen LOL The shell color is defined by breed, the eggs are the same but varies based on their diet. If they continue to not lay, feed them bits of pork fats chopped into small threads.

Might try a pear or cherry tree. My Dad had one of each when I was a child. They're a medium sized tree. Hope that helps;)

Executive inn was imploded a few years back. There's a strikingly beautiful convention center that's almost completed in its place and a big ole motel that's also almost completed. Gonna be very nice!!
My hens are the Aracaunas(?). Grey legs and feather beards. The hens are a variety of colors and the eggs they are SUPPOSED to be laying will be shades of pink ( light brown) bluish and greenish. The eggs are not uniform in size at all

Those weeping cherry trees look good in the spring, real good, and they look pretty all summer too, but in the winter they look all creepy to me for some reason.
Apple trees are nice and they bear fruit to so that's a plus, but they are kinda hard to keep alive when young.
Now a regular old rut of the mill mimosa...that's a hardy tree. They are real nice if you don't have allergies. I have several out in back of the shack.

What are those trees that bloom out in late spring, they can have all kinds of different colored blossoms from one tree to the next, the ones with the shiny purple looking leaves? I cant for the life of me remember the name...but they sure are pretty even when the blooms are gone.

Plant you a stand of ponderosa pine! You may come out some evening and catch little Joe under there with a pretty young girl.

Do you like mimosa trees? They are pretty hardy and do real good around here. The flowers are bright and hang on for about half of the warm season every year. In the fall they get little bean pods on them. I like the shape of the leaves to. Just an idea, they aren't fancy or nothing but I think they look right nice.
Of course my favorite scent is the scent of those old wild thorn roses. I let a good patch of them grow relatively close to the shack. The rabbits appreciate them as much or more than I do.
My brother has been trying to talk me into bush hogging them for a long time but I think I'll just let a good patch of em keep growing ...not spread mind you.

You had some flies over? Get a fly swatter and kill those pesky things.

Is your caps lock stuck or are you yelling in type?

The mimosa trees are really pretty and it would be nice to have a couple in the yard. We had them in in Louisiana and I really liked them.

And be careful on those rails if you get up on them Blue. They'll be slick with juice, its been pretty hot.
Have a good night skywatching if that is what you're doing, it sure is a good night for it. I reckon mars is pretty bright this time of year.
I know what you mean about stuff gettin in my eyes! It seems if I'm doing anything other than spiking there's always something gettin in my eyes.



Sometimes even spiking flips dirt, water or something

They are good looking trees, bloomed out or not.
That made me think of the scenery in middle Georgia. Those and that old man's beard moss or whatever it is that hangs from the trees down there. I got a handful of that moss on the way back from Florida one year and threw it up in an old hoary creek-willow that dad planted on my little plot of rock farm here in Ky. It grew the rest of the summer but froze out that winter.
You know I have a nice rock farm going here, quite a few have already sprouted. I just cant get the darn things to grow.

They do real good here in eastern Ky. The older folks call them silk trees. I like the way the flowers look all warm and fuzzy.
I always liked warm and fuzzy things. Bwaaaahahaha

I slipped one in on you that time girly.

I was raised on an island, I've had my share of tropical landscape. I did buy a hibiscus this year. The moss is gorgeous. I think the prettiest cemeteries I ever saw were in New Orleans. Lots of old trees with moss and the above ground crypts
