Just got back from the Chupps auction in Inola, OK. It was too hot and the auctioneers were spread too thin. It seemed to take forever for each to complete his row and start a new one.
I sold 16 birds and my check was, shall we way, too small to matter. I don't think I will be selling there again until next year. There were hardly any sellers, and the buyers ware paying pennies for some really good birds.
I missed bidding on a big tin-sided dog house for Vesta. She has eaten her last two houses, so it's time to move her into a house she can't chew. Maybe I should break down and build it myself. I could make the same doghouse as I made before, but cover the exterior walls with tin instead of painting the wood.
I found a neat knitting machine at the auction for our granddaughter. I hope all the pieces are in the box. The box had been rained on so it was very soggy and weak, so I didn't want to destroy it completely by trying to see all of the contents. I'll try it myself tomorrow to make sure it's functional. I wonder if I could make a knit chicken for N.E.O.C.S.?
I need to go make sure all the animals have water. Today was hot, and DH checked once but probably didn't study the level of the water in each waterer. I'll check back tonight, if I don't crash and burn early. Because it rained most of yesterday and all of last night, it was 4:00 a.m. before I could collect the birds I wanted to take to Chupps. I'm not good an no sleep, at least the on purpose no sleep. I guess I'm getting old. Talk to everyone later.
