MAY 4 2014
IT IS SHATUPON SUNDAY---

NOT ONLY THAT ... BUT I HOPE OUR NORMAL CONTINGENT OF PUPPY MANAGERS WILL BE BACK ON DUTY AFTER VACATIONS ETC..  EARLENE HAS FINISHED TENDING TO HER SISTER'S CATS, MEGAN IS BACK FROM  THE WILDS OF THE CARIBBEAN- AND SHEILA'S TURTLE  ( HER HOME AWAY FROM HOME, ... AN RV) IS PARKED DOWN BY THE T TENT  AND MARIA GOT ONE CHILD COMMUNED YESTERDAY---  

ALL THE SUBS WORKED BEAUTIFULLY -- BUT  THE OPERATION NEEDS  TO BE BACK IN FULL SWING... ESPECIALLY WITH THE  CONSTRUCTION COMING   WHICH WILL UPSET THE ENTIRE APPLECART.

STEVE--- AS IN CHARLIE STEVE-- FINISHED  THE BABY CHICKS ACCOMODATION-- NOW IF I ORDER THEM ON THURSDAY OF THIS WEEK, WE SHOULD HAVE THEM BY WEDNESDAY OF THE FOLLOWING WEEK.  WE NEED A HEAT LAMP YET...( FOR THOSE OF YOU WANTING TO START YOUR OWN EGG FARM.... THE HEAT LAMP HAS TO BE OFF TO ONE SIDE OF THIER PEN SO THEY HAVE THE OPTION OF BEING UNDER IT  OR NOT...)  AND THEY ARE MESSY...  I START MINE ON "CHICK STARTER"  WHICH IS A MEDICATED FEED- FOR THE FIRST WEEK...   I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS WHAT THEY REFER TO WITH "RAISED ON ANTIBIOTICS"   -- I TRIED GOING STRAIGHT TO NON MEDICATED FOOD ONCE AND THEY ALL DIED..--I HAVE NO IDEA  WHAT THEY DIED OF-- SO  MINE GET STARTED ON  THE MEDICATED  BEFORE THEY GO TO NORMAL CHICKEN FOOD.(PLUS OF COURSE  KITCHEN SCRAPS)
CHICKENS WILL EAT ABOUT ANYYTHING--  I HAVE NO QUALMS ABOUT FEEDING THEM LEFT OVER BBQ CHICKEN----THEY WILL EAT EACH OTHER AT TIMES ANYWAY ....NASTY BUNCH...

STEVE-- AS IN MEAT CHOPPER STEVE-- RAN AROUND HERE WITH THE BLOWER AND CLEANED US UP  BEFORE ORGANIZING TEH  CRAZY ACRES DERBY WITH GRACE FOR MAIL CALL...

THE PUPS DID SPEND AN HOUR OR SO IN TEH V PEN BY THE T TENT... THEY ARE CUTE BIG TIME--

THEY NOW NEED TO LEARN TO COME WHEN CALLED-- WITH THE SPOON FEEDING...  OUR DERBY MIGHT HAVE GONE A LITTLE SMOOTHER IF THEY HAD PRACTICED RUNNING TO THE SPOON FEEDING NOISE.

GOALS OF THE DAY
ALONG WITH THE SH#TTING
IT WOULD BE NICE TODAY TO TRY AND GET THE HARNESS ON MRS ASHLEY-- THE WHITE MULE-  AND SEE IF SHE IS NICELY BROKE...
DO A SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WALK OF THE FLAT FIELD
AND GET ONE SMATTERING OF PURPLE PAINT ON THE FRONT OF THE BARN... 

CAMERA  MARK SAID HE WOULD COOK... AND I  DID GET THE INGREDIENTS OF THE  TRADITIONAL CHICKEN STEW...

SO I BETTER GET AT IT
