Morning friendlies

Today is D-day. The day I find out the test results of my ringneck.
I have mixed feelings about it. Will give 'em a call a bit later to hear what the outcome is

Don't have any news yet. I phoned them earlier today but the results weren't in yet. They said they'd phone me when it gets there. So now it's a waiting game... *BIG sigh*

Thanks, I'll keep digging.
Dug out my Foxfire #5 and found the recipe for Black Powder, It consists of(by weight):

75% Saltpeter(finely ground)

15% charcoal(finely ground)

10% sulpher(powdered flowers of sulpher)

mix ingredients in a plastic/ceramic bowl. After they are well mixed,add just enough water to until you have a biscuit dough-like consistencey.(Urine can be substituted for water. Some claim it adds to the power's "oomph" during ignition.) take the powder dough and roll out on wood plank until 3/8" thick. Let dry completely,usually a couple days. After it is dried it can then be "corned" or broken into the desired grain size. 1f/2ff or 3fff size.

There ya go. Have fun,be safe and play well with others.....

Watched this show on Sci channel. About UFO's and aliens and stuff.
There was something about how they're living among us(mostly in DC) I always knew I was different somehow. But I only joked about being a Klingon..
I guess it's attitude.

Good morning friendlies and HAPPY FRIDAY!

Had a hard time falling asleep last night, was worrying about the results for my ringneck's beak-and-feather disease test.

And I was informed by a friend that her daughter's boyfriend saw a brown horse with a badly wounded front foot (just above the hoof). Of course my first thought was that it's MY horse who managed to injure himself again. But my mind was put at ease this morning when I saw the reply that it's two new horses who have injuries. I'm glad that the bad luck missed me this time, but I feel sorry for those horses and their owners. I know what it feels like...

I hope they make a speedy recovery.

Have a great Friday everybody, and a fantastic weekend

Hi, Ruby, Rotor, Okie, Princess, FC and that guy I haven't seen in a while.
The sun's out, it's warm again. Jupiter rises just after sunset. Had to toss that in. Brightest thing in the sky.
XO's got the week-end off so probably go somewhere.
everybody behave while I'm gone.

From the VAC. Had a commercial shot yesterday for a cancer center in Atl. IF, it happens to be the big one all over the U.S. we may get to see it.

Check out P-51 D called E Pluribus Unum. Really nice paint on that bird.

Well it got stormy last night. Picked up some more rain and naturally the temp dropped too.
I really miss dry season with the balmy temps and breezes ...
Must be that global warming thing screwing up the jet stream.
Hey, do you think there might be any fish in that stream? Just kidding.

Hi friendlies

Just dropped by to say hello. I was off sick today. Yesterday afternoon I threw up after lunch, and everytime I tried to drink something, it would come right back out again. Didn't feel much better this morning. But I'm happy to report that I'm now again able to eat and drink things without it coming right back out. I don't know what's wrong with me, this was the second time something like this happened. But I didn't see the need to go to the doctor. Will just monitor the situation carefully and hope for the best

Still no news from the vets about my ringneck's blood tests. Phoned them earlier, and they said they'd call me back, but I haven't heard anything back from them so I don't know what's going on. I was supposed to get the results on Thursday or Friday already! Just gives me even more reason for concern...

Anyway, hope you all had a good day so far and will have a nice peaceful evening. Ciao for now

Ringneck? As in Pheasant? Our neighbor who leases part of our farm has guided hunts for them and chukkar sometimes on weekends. What the hunters don't successfully harvest we see roaming around until the red tailed hawks get them. We can always tell when he has a big hunt. There will be 5 hawks in a single large oak tree.

Hi Rotor!
Ed, Princess, Oki, Ruby, Shove and all good peeps around here ... been awhile ... All those "to do" things for the 1st of the year, yeah those ... well, been working on them ... Got 3 piles down and working on the next ... Finally released for the right knee surgery after 5 months of rehab and started back up at the gym first week of Jan ... well, this is only the 2nd week, huh? Well, actually it's the 3rd week but it feels like forever ... I didn't realize how much I missed my cronies at the gym and they actually missed me, too! It's like I have a life again, LOL ... Gaby is trying to talk me in joining her YMCA and I toured it today ... WOW! Their inside pool is State of the Art ,, absolutely beautiful ... I'm not a swimmer ... I mean I can swim but I have a low ear canal, water gets in there but doesn't come out so here come the ear infections ... There's also an awesome outdoor pool ... there's time out the little kids have to come out so the adults can have their time ...The Y is in Cedar Park, the fastest growing town in Texas and a LOT closer to where I live ... 12 miles ... my gym is a lot further but I've been going there since 2006 and I guess you might say I don't like change but I've developed my friendships there and I really like it there ... so I'm rambling. Happy 2014 SALUD! FC <3

Ahh we know where your mind is now don't we?
Ring neck parakeet she has.
But about them delicious birds wandering about. Whenst I was just a wee lad, I used to snipe them from my bedroom window. Sent the dog out after them too.Funny thing, Dad never asked why the picnic table was against the back of the house. Guess he just understood.

Yes, an Indian Ringneck parakeet. The wild ones come mostly in green, but mine's supposedly a blue pallid (colour). Looks like this one:(Well, when he HAD feathers!) http://www.indianringneck.net/sitebuilder/ima...

Phoning the vet again today to enquire about the blood test. It's been much too long now. They said they'd phone me back yesterday, but never did. I don't know if they just forgot or what but I hope they get their shit sorted now and tell me what the results are!!! I paid a lot of money for those damn tests!

7878 - Bet they'll have a million excuses and stories again!

Well, I phoned the vet again about 3 hours ago, and as suspected, they had a million-and-one excuses again, and I'm STILL waiting for them to "phone me back". Yet again! This is getting absolutely ridiculous and when I phone them now, I'm not going to be friendly. I demand an answer from them NOW! My patience is wearing very thin

I've decided, if they say they'd phone me back, I'm going to say no, I'll hold. Doesn't matter how long I have to wait, I'm not hanging up before I get my answer! So they had better be prepared. I am NOT a very happy camper at the moment

8885 - Bet they'd get me my f**king results next time I phone

*#%^@!

I phoned them again now, and apparently they're waiting for the fax to come through. Couldn't they tell me that on Thursday already???

They said they'd phone me back. Yet again. But I'm not counting on it. This is really getting ridiculous now, and the longer the wait, the more I stress about the outcome...

So here we go again, round 3 of this waiting game. Great.

6754 - Cool. Let's hope that's a good sign
