  1. The Front Porch

    Halloween is on my mind! Check out the spider my husband welded together for me! Still needs fangs and eyes, then I can paint her. This is Everett, my friend/co-worker's son. He is going to help build a web to put Charlotte in for my yard display. We plan on using zip ties and white paracord, soaked in glow-in-the-dark paint to make the 15-20' diameter web. And since I named her Charlotte, another co-worker suggested I put a "word" in her web. I'm not sure what word it will be (Spooky? Boo?) but we can use orange paracord to spell it out.

    You aren't a 3rd wheel, I enjoy hearing from you!

    I need to vacuum our pool. Next week we are supposed to have 90s temps and then we'll probably shock/vacuum and close it up by the end of the month. I wish it were heated so I could swim year-round. I'm always more fit in the summer and then winter-body takes over.

    Whew! Sounds as if it will all work out.

    LOL, you guys! He's a Peruvian Horse, beautifully gaited and smooth.

    I'm sure I posted about getting Ever just before Easter... Here is a pic of him about 3wks after I got him. He was still a bit underweight in this pic. I need to take updated pics of him. He has put on a good amount of weight. I am still trying to fatten up his topline a little more so he is "rounded" like my others, but he looks great.

    There are a handful of people who still regularly visit and post. We tend to stick mainly to a couple threads, creating some new ones for specific topics, but most things are in the couple threads. There was a kerfuffle a couple years ago that resulted in a mass exodus, with many leaving for Facebook and a couple private FB groups were formed.

    Put out another water source so everyone has access to water. As for the buildings, you're stuck waiting for them to shake out their pecking order. I brought in a dominant gelding this spring and put him in with my submissive mare and other dominant gelding. The mare moves if anyone gives her an ugly face but the boys have been jockeying for position. There have been skirmishes and some bite marks but the boys tend to keep a distance from each other now. Original dominant gelding retains his position and 2nd dominant moves out of his way and/or waits until last to enter the shelter. I have them separated at night so new horse can eat his feed as I'm still fattening him up.

    The feral cat may not appreciate you, but I do: Bless you! =^..^=

    The Acro-Cats were near me last summer and I couldn't get off work to go to their show, I was so bummed!

    Oh, I'm so sorry for LJ. That's such a hard lesson for a kiddo and he's so conscientious. I hope it doesn't weigh too heavily on him for too long. I'm not much for game meat, though I was surprised how much I liked Elk.

    I love how funny our critters can be! Odie walking into a store like he belongs and Fiona enjoying her rinse with her eyes closed in appreciation. These stories make me smile so big!

    OMG, poor Ursa and YAY for LJ!!!! Hi, PD!

    Thanks for asking about the stings. My leg is only slightly sore and the markings are almost all gone. My hand and wrist are back to normal and the last one I got on my forearm only has a slight knot and a bit of redness. I killed about 4 more wasps last night in the barn. I'm hoping it ends soon and we finally get them all. I'm jumpy as heck, if anything touches me or pokes me, I'm flailing about. I stopped bandaging Ever's leg 2 nights ago and it is still looking good. I am still putting Corona ointment on all of the wounds every day.
