    D'awww!!!

    Taking a break from the poopy scooping of doom (there's a lot of me just walking back and forth looking for poops. Whee!

    Bright side...I found the tiniest little sprinkler thing at the hardware store for $5! Win!!! Which is absolutely perfect since it's just for my planter boxes anyway. Yay now I can turn on the tap, go feed the chicks, come back and boom. Watered. The testing will be tomorrow am :) sun was already high when I got back from errands.

    also went to the feed store and got my girls a big girl chicken feeder thing...since SOMEBODY (SOUP!) likes to hang out on top of the feeder and is getting too big so it gets knocked over a lot. And more food. Cause my chickens are pigs. The guy at the feed store laughed at me and said well around 6-8 weeks they eat. And eat. And eat. No argument here.

    And Yes. I have a chicken named soup. She was the last to be named lol.

    Sigh. My hubs is a slow learner. He wants to do a car show thing tomorrow am, wants to leave "before eight". Sets his alarm for 7:30.

    After me saying okay but you wanted to leave when? He tells me. (Before was just showing me his alarm) okay. I'll set mine for 7.

    7? You need that much time?

    Yes. Got to shower (oh curly hair how I love thee), pee and feed the dog, check on the chickens, make sure they're good on food and water and toss some water at the garden. He doesn't seem to remember the last cars and coffee we went to where it was "babe are you ready to go yet?" "Uh can you feed the dog and do this and that?!"

    Almost a year of living with me and the dog (the chickens are a much newer addition) he still doesn't quite realize that yep. Time must be spent.

    Welcome and good-sat-morning! Most everybody is sleeping in or busy doing the week-end thing so's just sit right down and they'll show up in due time.
    Just so you know, with most of these people 'brownies' is a lot better then free coffee.
    Have fun and enjoy
    Scott

    Welcome! Always room here!
    Prostar, after 30 years, DH still does not "get it" about most anything not directly circling in his own personal universe. I think that is just how some people are. See.... boys, MEN..., I did not say that, because I know of a lot of women that are that way as well.
