I have been up and out since before daylight, stopping by this thread long enough to have fun with the other posters and judges. I live in a rather secluded area and don't communicate with other humans except when I go to the store or to church.

So as long as Topix provides this thread or a similar one and I am able, I will be on here posting my nonsense for my OWN entertainment reagardless of what others may do. And a Good Morning to you.

Sometimes I do get up early but you've got me beat. You seem to be pretty far out in the country and no neighbors. not a bad thing! Topix can be very entertaining..so keep up the "nonsense" AW!
This week I'm keeping the grandchildren and they have entered the "sleeping till noon" phase of their life. I'm thinking I can pull the old Tom Sawyer trick of getting them to paint on the fence, well chicken coop in my case.

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

The chicken coop did get painted and it looks dog gone good! Kids painted all the outside except for the trim. Good job, kids !
Like AW I got the yard mowed today. It'd been two weeks and my mower is still in the shop.$100 and a guy with a zero turn got it done.
Capped off the outside day with a row around the pond with my granddaughter sitting on the back bench with her. BB gun....shooting at the fence posts we past. 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

Hello birdthreaders, hope you all are enjoying our last couple days of no rain. I am. I thought I would drop in to see if everyone was doing okay.

I see the trolls have been busy. hahaha

Here are a couple DIY...handy ones

For tomatoes:

To prevent beetles and other insects from destroying your tomatoes, create a mixture of one gallon of water, six drops of liquid soap, and two tablespoons of crushed hot red pepper powder. Spray this solution on your plants weekly.

May have posted this one before, but some may not have seen it.

Ttick/flea repellent recipe

Repellent for your pets:

For pets, add 1 cup of water to a spray bottle, followed by 2 cups of distilled white vinegar. Ticks hate the smell and taste of vinegar, and will be easily be repelled by this ingredient alone. Then, add two spoonfuls of vegetable or almond oil, which both contain sulfur (another natural tick repellent).

To make a repellent that will also deter fleas, mix in a few spoonfuls of lemon juice, citrus oil, or peppermint oil, any of which will repel ticks and fleas while also creating a nicely scented repellent. Spray onto the pet's dry coat, staying away from sensitive areas including eyes, nose, mouth, and genitals. When outdoors for an extended period, spray this solution on two to three times per day.

For you and your family:

In a spray bottle, mix 2 cups of distilled white vinegar and 1 cup of water. To make a scented solution so you do not smell like bitter vinegar all day, add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil.

Eucalyptus oil is a calm, soothing scent that also works as a tick repellent, while peppermint and citrus oils give off a strong crisp scent that also repel ticks.

After mixing the solution, spray onto clothing, skin, and hair before going outdoors. Reapply every four hours to keep ticks at bay, and examine your skin and hair when back inside to make sure no ticks are on the body.
