Well I went to feed the critters and that rooster, who we inherited when he fell off a Tyson truck, was deader than a doornail. He was the type they feed supplements to so I know it was the heat - musta weighed close to 25 pounds. It wouldn't even fit in a big garbage bag, had to put him in a huge cardboard box. Got that done and decided to expand the little sheep's and her bud's (pgymy goat) quarters. I mean how hard is it too take off one pig panel and restaple it to another spot??!!! I will not even go there. I would have waited for Dennis but my problem is if I get something in my head I want it done now. Well while moving this and pounding that and wiping the sweat away so I can see, here comes my little kitten with a rat bigger than her head. My great pyr wanted to get involved but I figured it was the kitten's catch so I put him up. In fact even the other kitten didn't get involved. He played that baby to death. I was a proud mother. Got the fenced moved, finally had to wire one side, I couldn't pound hard enough to get those huge staples or whatever in. The other side is real good. All I have left is one more load of wash to dry and I am done. Gee I wonder what the city folks are doing.

Hate boring you all but I get to tickled by what happens that every so often I just have to share it.

Have a rainbow day.

My morning started a little earlier than normal. I awoke to my two cats "playing" with something. It was NOT a mouse. Much bigger and looked low to the ground. I just freaked. Got hubby out of bed to get the "creature". Well, I forgot my daughter had just brought home a new hampster! Needless to say, I felt pretty stupid, and now the varmit is somewhere in the depths of the kitchen cabinets.

Hope you find it before your daughter discovers its missing and/or it just stays in the walls. Been there on that one. Without going into detail hope he comes out alive. Ain't life fun!!

Right on, EO, don't mind shareing those things with you at all.....fact is, it is so different talking about rats, we don't have them in Alberta, I believe we are the only rat free province in Canada, so, I have never seen one....don't even have any notable snakes in this area, just those itty bitty little garter snakes, and dang few of them too! Tell ya what we do got...we got, bars-black and grizzly, cougers, wolves, stupid coyotes, linx, moose, white tail and mule deer, elk, sasquatch, and a partridge in a poplar tree.. well....maybe the last two are....well.....lacking? have a gooder, R.E.L.

Well grove r, around here we gots lots a snakes. We got rattlers, copperheads, cottonmouths, kings, gopher snakes and a lot of other kinds, too. This time of year, ya kinda have to watch where you're steppin' or a stickin' your hands. Last year we had a bad mouse problem and the ol' snakes was thick. Yup, reminded me of my days in the Legion in Indochina. Wouldn't mind havin' a few mooses and elks around. We got too many of them white tails. Only sasquatch around here was some 15 years kid in town who they caught peeking into the girls' locker room over at the high school. If you need some snakes up there let me know and I'll even pay the freight.

Uhhh, no thanks GF, don't think they could tolerate the winters, [big plus], ain't too much extra room in the house, and I kinda think these "Jack Daniels" terriers would have a field day on the "fetch" and "shake the snake" scene.....On that "Peeping Tom" issue......Seems that in Inuvik there was quite a stir about one of them type fellers last week......think his name was Tom Tookalook......or something........Have a gooder, R.E.L.

If you want I can send you the rest of mine. I just thought they played it to death. When I went back out to finish up my chores this darn kitten was eating it. Guess my Greenhorn is showing again. Yuck!! I put it in the box with the dead rooster. Dennis' haul to the cemetery is growing.
