All four pigs got out. Ted was gone for work, and when I went to feed them, they weren't there. I kept looking for them, thinking they were sound asleep in a pig pile, and then I was looking at the yard, thinking, "What did those dogs do NOW???" Then I realized the pigs pushed … Continue reading Es-cop-ay! (said in Dory’s voice)
Chewy is Gramma Izzie's little nine year old Shih-Tzu. Dad bought him years ago, before he retired from teaching, and Gramma became the doggie daycare for him for about fifteen hours a day. They loved each other so much (and Chewey slid around on Mom's hardwood floors and good rugs one time too many) that … Continue reading Hello, Chewey
On the way home from our staff meeting, I stopped at Rural King. Guess what cute feathery little fluffballs I found? Yep! Chicks!!! There were just a few bins of them, but they were all pullets. Farming tip: Let your local store know your name and number in case they can't sell the chicks they … Continue reading Rural King has chicks!
If you have bread... ...they will come... ...and they will bring their feathered friends! Sahara ran out of bread. She was sure they were going to attack her. LOL Jake didn't want to leave even though he was out of bread, too. This funny one ate right from their hands. He brought a friend, too! … Continue reading If you have bread…
Tucker owns Ted... ...and she knows it!
I filled up last night. Here's the mileage! 300.4 miles 8.143 gallons 300.4 miles/8.143 gallons = 36.89 mpg! That was almost all in town driving, too! It will be interesting to compare that to this next week which will have a lot of highway miles.
I topped off the tank on January 4th again. This shows the mileage on that date. I drove 224.1 miles and put in 6.22 gallons of gas. That equals out to 36.0289/mpg! This included a LOT of highway driving in those miles. I'm curious to see what the mileage will be when I fill up … Continue reading Smart car gas mileage
Ted and I made a four hour round trip today to pick up 28 new hens. They are young five month old pullets, and they are just gorgeous and SO DOCILE AND SWEET! They should all start to lay eggs by late May. My goal is to have farm fresh eggs from pasture raised hens … Continue reading New girls!
I posted on Kroger's Facebook page last night, and in less than 24 hours, there have been over 1,500 likes on it! The comments have all been so positive, too. It got me to thinking: we're all so quick to post the negative, but I'm betting far more positives happen to all of us. Let's … Continue reading A little act of kindness goes a long way
...because we're still working on adapting something that's super old to something that's brand new, and that threw a kink in the whole thing today (January 1st) ! Tomorrow, though, there will be after pics because Ted and Isaiah figured out what to do and just have to get the piece needed.
