    Today it was 79 degrees by 9 am, which wouldn't necessarily be bad, but the humidity had to have been 80%! Or higher... So sometimes AC is good. However, we are not having it installed in our new house. At least not now, maybe sometime, several years down the road.

    Your mother's works are amazing! She may still be able to do drawing or water colors. What people are the best at they do a lot, and there are more pathways to get to the same place- memory wise.
    I know this must be very difficult for you.They are lucky to have you.

    Two bears and another dead horse this evening! Big bear got shot with rubber buckshot and we were tracking it only to hear chickens being attacked at my neighbor's house again, so we bolted over there and chased the 200lber off. Didn't have a good kill shot. He got one chicken. The dead horse is out in the pasture. It died of seizures, probably from a brain tumor and they want to do a necropsy on it, but I bet the stupid bears come back. The bears came before dark and she didn't have her fence on yet, cause she had just gotten home and was taking her dogs for a walk.
    This is just right out not good!

    She might need a hotter fence and one that is always on. Get gates, they do work.
    I do wish you guys luck with the bear problem, why rubber shot? don't lead/steel work better?

    Bears are just to scary to contemplate even over the airwaves or whatever.
