sizzle has a big belly... not huge.. but big.. and she is very casual... flipped arounf a few fluffies, but nothing alarming as they usually do.
meanwhile may has decided motherhood is not all it is cracked up to be... and would rather sleep on the couch in th eliving room.. in spite of the all the food, chicken and cheeze we are feeding her-- she is not fat... maybe start some goats milk today to help out.
the chicken shed had a nasty detour yesterdqay when there was not quite enough ink to make th astrtisk more visable thqt said one of the pieces was shipped separately...
today being siz's first due date.. i may have at it again trying to put the 6-nest together.... they saved a Lot of ink by not making the directions very detAILED
APPARENTLY I AM NOT GIVING ENOUGH EMPHASIS ON INK... BECAUSE THRERE IS ONE BANKING OUTFIT THQT DOES NOT INCLUDE TEH DONOR'S NAME IN AN EFFORT TO SAVE INK.... ON THE PAGE THEY ARE ALREADY SENDING US???
HP..MADE OUR PRINTER.. VERY INEXPENSIVE PRINTER AND A GOOD ONE.... NOW DO YOU WANT TO CONSIDER THE COST OF TH LITTLE INK CARTERIDGES...
THIS CAN'T BE CALLED POLITICAL, I DON'T KNOW THE PARTY OF THE PERSPN INVOLVED, BECAUSE THIER PARTY DOES NOT MATTER.. SHE IS A WOMAN.. APPARENTLY ? NOT 30 YEARS OLD? AND GIVE A SPEACH IN THE HOUSE REGrding teh congressman who ... on camerq ..
apparently called her a F#$%^&* B#$%^&. HER SPEACH HIT HOME WITH ME....YOU HAVE HEARD ME TELL OF THE MANY TIMES I HAVE BEEN WRITEN OFF AS "ONLY A WOMAN"... JANINE SAID THE STORY OF HOW SHE ROSE TO BE IN THE HOUSE IS WORTH KNOWING... SO I ORDERED HER AUDIO BOOK... WHICH HAS NOT BEEN PUBLISHED YET.
MY HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED.. MEN WITH EITHR A WIFE OR DAUGHTERS SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS ALSO.
AS A TEEN AGER I WAS LABORIOUSLY TAUGHT HOW TO IRON A MAN'S WHITE SHIRT ... AMONG OTHER THINGS. IN HIGH SCHOOL I WAS ADVISED BY MY GUIDENCE DIRECTOR NOT TO PURSUE ONE CAREER, BECAUSE THAT WAS A MANS JOB AND I SHOULDN'T KEEP IT FROM A MAN WHO HAD TO SUPPORT HIS FAMILY .... IT DIDN'T TAKE ME LONG TO DECIDE IRONING SIRTS WAS A MAN.'S JOB AND FOR 35 CENTS EACH , HE COULD HAVE IT !
THAT WOMAN'S SPEECH WAS EQUALED ONLY BY A BLACK WOMAN I MET ON A PHOTO JOB YEARS AGO.... WHO HAD STRUGGLED TO BECOME ONE OF THE FIRST WOMEN "FIREMEN" IN BOSTON... BEING BLACK WAS A DOUBLE WHAMMY-- HER IDEAS WERE WELL CONCIEVED ALSO.
FYI...THE THINGS I WAS TAUGHT GOT ME PREPARED FOR LIFE ON THE PRAIRIE....
IF YOU ARE MAKING JAM OR JELLY, YOU NEED A HUGE PAN SO THAT THE STUFF IS NOT MORE THAN 2 INCHES THICK AND CAN "BOIL OFF" THR MOISTURE..
THAT WAS LONG BEFORE COSTCO- AND CASES OF JAM.
AND BEFORE TEH WORDS "LABOR INTENSIVE" PERTAINED TO WOMEN..
LABOR INTENSIVE -----ALSO PERTAINS TO OWNING A HORSE.... FOR EVERY HOUR YOU RIDE THE BEAST REQUIRES 40 HOURS OF PHYSICAL EFFORT AND CONSIDERABLE EXPENSE. DRaft horses that are not used for "WORK" are even worse.. the harness weighs a ton and theri feet are in need of a blacksmith ever 6 to 8 weeks... and since there are not mqny blcksmiths who shoe drafties, they are expensive... last i knew 15 years ago... $250 per horse every
dogs are a lot better...
we had a gradution yesterday with RIGEL... i know we shou ld make a ceremony of teh pairing of dogs, but somehow we are stretched to get everything 4else done.... which leaves out all the people who have contributed $10 chicken bricks to make this happen--- maybe when lynn comes on board she can take over "styff" and i can go back to worrying about parties --- which is a lot more FUN.
SIZZZ IS SNORING BEHIND ME.. DOES NOT SEEM IN ANY HURRY TO BE A MOM....
