SLIGHT CHANGE IN THE RULES OF THE SHATUPON PROJECT--- WE PUT OUT THE 3 HENS-- 2 IMMEDIATELY FLEW OFF LEAVING ONLY ONE TO PRODUCE TEH POO
THAT DID NOT SEEM TO BE HAPPENING.... HOWEVER.. AS SHE RAN BACK AND FORTH... SHE BEGAN TO PICK UP NUMBER STICKERS. SO A VERY QUICK DECISION WAS MADE THAT IT WAS GOLDIE'S WAY OF PICKING THE WINNERS.... SO WE DID THAT.
THE PROJECT TO WATCH ON THE INTERNET..PUPPY HILL CAMERA.... TODAY , WILL HOPEFULLY BE TEH NEW PUPPY PEN IN FRONT OF TEH T-TENT..-- the first few holes have to be hand dug, as we are awfully close to the electricity and water coming from the laundry building... i had dig safe come3 and identify the electrical-- but they did not id any water--- ordinarily wter would be down 4 or 5 feet here in new england.... except this line was burried in a hury so people woudl stop running over the hose which we needed to supply the "mister" in the t tent. . so it is down only about 6 inches and we just shut it off in the winter when we do not need teh mister.
i was shocked to have all teh visitors here yesterday be shocked to learn "evaporation is a cooling process"" ( good ole physics) -- when in the heat, and in a bind, a simple spray bottle and a fan will reduce your immediate surroundings by 20 - 30 degrees, any old spray bottle-( clean... ) filled with water will allow you to sit outside and be perfecty comfortable in 95 degrees. i was very shocked to hear tht a child here yesterday went to a school which did not have airconditioninig--- just a few fans.... wait til she shows up monday with a spray bottle...... so simple... so cheap.... so efficient..---- the cooling devices are marketed as "misters" which are basically a fan with a hose attachment.
or you can just buy the hose attachment for under $10 -- *******i do have one word of advice...********. if you are using well water-- or even town water, it would be worth the 39 cents to buy a washer for the hose that has a strainer because many sources of water have tiny particles which will clog th etiny spray noseles.. easily dealt with in the spray bottle del.ivery system. walt disney in florida uses "misters" to keep the people waiting in line cooler.
LYNN HAS THE WEEK OFF.........LET US PRAY... SHE GETS THINGS DONE WHILE I AM STILL WONDERING HOW TO..... LIKE HAVING THE PICTURE OF MARY OUTLINED IN THE NIGHT LIGHT OF THE T TENT.... MARY WAS A SUPER ANIMAL---CREATED BY THE FACT THAT SHE ROAMED FREELY AROUND HERE AND GOT INTO ANYONE'S PROJECT AND WELCOMED EVERY CAR THRU THE GATE.. SHE WAS UNIQUE IN MORE THAN 2 WAYS.. BUT SHE DEFINITELY COULD PLAN AHEAD AND ENJOYED MAKING US CHASE HER... YOU COULD NOT UNLOAD 2 BAGS OF GRAIN... BECAUSE HOWEVER CAREFULLY YOU PLANNED, YOU WOULD LAND ONE IN TH EBARN... AND SHE WOULD BE RUNNING AROUND THE YARD WITH . THE OTHER IN HER TEETH .. SHE WOULD RANDOMLY APPEAR AT THE. FRONT DOOR AND BRAY LOUDLY UNTIL YOU CAME OUT WITH ...PREFERABLY .. CARROTS. BUT ANYTHING WOULD DO.
MARY "CONVERSED???" WITH EACH DOG BY GRAISING RIGHT NEXT TO THE FENCE AND ENCOURAGING THE DOGS TO SWAP BREATHS THRU THE FENCE. THEY NEVER CHASED HER.. AND SHE NEVER OFFERED TO BITE THEM.. THE WHOLE PLACE WAS MORE CIVALIZED WHEN SHE RULED THE ROOST.
NOW BRUCE IS OUR ROVING TERRERIST WITH HIS OWN SET OF RULES. HE LIKES HALEY-- ALL ELSE CARRY A PROTECTIVE SHIELD ( AKA SNOW SHOVEL)
my only other improve,ment idea to pass on is. karen... the nurse karen... tied my matress to the box spring to solve teh roving matress problem... and it worked !! even sizzle behaved better as she no longer had to deal with sliding offr the edge.
time to make teh post holes...
