Sorry violet about your baby chick.
Isn't that the truth!
I have so much to do, I will never get it done. I am such a push over I help others too much. I need to learn to say "No". A young couple that live between Ivie and us as become friends with us. I guess they like smelly old people. I guess to some of you they would be an old couple as they are just shy of 40, to me they are young. I spent 2 days this week building a coop for him and panels for the run. I don't think he did much hands on work as a kid and wants to learn. It is fun working with them but it takes from my stuff that needs to get done.
Yesterday, I showed him how to change his rotors and brake pads, so that took time. Again, he just wants to learn how to do it. He was amazed how much money he saved doing it himself. I think he said the shop wanted $600 to do it.
I have my friends tractor/backhoe here and I need to repack the hydraulic cylinders, repair the steering, change oil and fix some of the wiring on it, I know he wants it soon, but I just have not had tome to get to it. I know that will take 4-5 days or more to do.
A good weekend on chick sales, I brought in a couple hundred bucks, so that means I only lost a few hundred! The WWD seems to not understand basic economics. I brought in money and she is still complaining. She found the receipt from Martie's for $225 of feed and got all "wifelike" about it. Saying things like " When are you going to quit buying things?".......Gee whiz the babies have to eat!
BC I think we all have that same insurance policy now. I am feel so bad for him, once a knee is hurt, it gives problems for ever it seems. I am also really feeling your pain over the wallet being hurt.
Another rainy day, so another day of work in the shop building more panels and brooders.
BTW I noticed no one has posted today, has their been a break out of small pox I did not know about ? Or leprosy and all your fingers feel off? (for you English majors that are mortified when I start a sentence with a conjunction, the major writers in history have started nearly 10% of their sentences with a conjunction, so there!
Now get posting! please my coffee is getting cold waiting to read something.
I really wish I knew how to say "no".
