Hi All,, I went to the wine shop and bought a few things to finish the last 3 jugs of wine.. I did jug #5 today.. I am not sure it is going to turn out as I would like.. It was all done, but too sweet, so I cut it with about 1/4 water and tried to restart the fermentation.. not too promising looking so far..
when I got home from town, I was greeted by 4 dogs.. I was surprised, although I knew they were coming.. Annie did give the money back.. I left the puppies loose all day.. Not so much as a sideways glance at the birds.. I think maybe they found a dead chicken and had a tug O war with it.. they did that once here.. they do chase the chickens away from the feed dish,, (theirs and the chickens').. for some reason they like the laying granuals.. I wouldn't mind keeping them all.. but that would never do..
My new putor is faster and better, but I cannot watch you tube with it.. it runs in jerks.. and takes a long irritating time ..
I am in contact with the people from Northern Wisc who were featured on TV with their Maremma dogs.. I will be trying to work out a breeding deal with them..
I did not hear from my tractor mechanic again this weekend, so I called another guy who I talked with a few weeks ago.. he lives about 15 miles from me.. I said I could drive the tractor to him if that would speed up the repairs, rather than wait until he has time to pick it up.. then later on during the day, bro #2 from RI called me and said he had a mechanic lined up.. Only that one is in Wisc Rapids.. Too far away , in my way of thinking.. Annie said to stay with the local guy.. He does this full time and works exclusively on tractors.. Might cost a little more $$ but if I have trouble in the future he will be easier to get a hold of..
I called Wausau Hydraulics this AM.. he said my part would be ready on Tuesday.. Then he called me at about 1 PM and said the part was ready. $130.oo.. I sure hope it fits...
we have 3 baby cockatiels ready to go to new homes.. we got rid of 3 already.. Now there are 2 pairs of the adults starting to lay eggs.. How much can I sell the babies for on Craig's List ??
Nephew found a dead half eaten chicken behind the garage.. It happened before the puppies came back.. I am guessing skunk or coon..? that makes 3 in 3 days.. Of course this last one had to be one of the expensive black ones..
those young chickens are starting to be easily recognized as hens and roos.. It must make Annies mouth water, because she said that we should send a few roos to freezer camp..
