    My mother used to use Lysol concentrate (diluted I assume) to take care of her female issues. [​IMG] Can't imagine what my father thought of that. LOL She claimed that she would "itch down there if she used anything else." And yet she managed to give birth to at least 1 dirty minded child.[​IMG]

    So back to my week from hell. Sunday I removed all the picket (white vinyl) panels from around the pool, and loosened the bolts holding the 4x4 sleaves off. Then gave up when temp got over 90.

    Monday went to farm and got the duex coop almost ready for all the slw to move over. Including building roost of closet poles/rods, putting together a 10 hole nest box and hanging it and moving all the stuff we had been storing in the house. Also did other general chores at the farm.

    Tuesday Gene ( in bobcat) came over and we tore out an old wooden fence on the property line of the more (plan on putting the old vinyl pool fence over there). Removed the 4 anchor bolts per 4x4 posts got the old post holders off then had to take a grinding wheel and cut the bolts sticking out of the cement anchors off. Also installed the wallmount sink in room 10 and fixed screen door and but in new 40 sony flat screen tv.

    Weds got a call from a county commissioner in reguards to the fence we are putting in at the farm. My "good" neighbor to the east (same one that helped himself to my hay this year and raised so much hell last year when we fenced a different part of my property) complained because some of the posts were to close to the road for his liking. I knew some were close to the road but no closer then my other neighbors' to the west. We had gone up and over some very large culiverts to try to avoid having the fence wash out in the annual flash floods I get down there. Ended up having to remove 3 railroad tie posts (cemented in) and 2 metal t-posts. The commissioner had no other problems with distance (followed old fence line) and commented that is was gonna be "1 hell of a fence when done" Keep in mind this fence is on a minimum maintance road that the county plows about twice a year and never in winter. Set new posts. Then finished the duex coop and went up with fishing nets to catch all of this years chicks to band and clip wing feathers and transfer all the slw. 20 pullets and 9 or 11 of last years girls. Some the this years chicks flew over the fence into gen pop will have to get them latter. I know that Beth had got 1 of the escapies earlier that day thinking it was the sizzor/crossed beak pullet. Hauled in the horse trailer with and evictiee's (from motel) crap he left in room and park in front of his new digs so they could unload. This is the same day Beth tried to remove one of her toes.

    napdognewfie,
    Multi is just to the left of the quote button.

    When I started on BYC, I just started pressing buttons to see what happened! I'm not much of a computer person, so I completely sympathize about trying to figure out all this stuff. BYC is only social media thing I do. Son's new cross country coach was asking for volunteers for an even this week. They do everything on computer sign ups now and I couldn't figure out how to do it. [​IMG] So I had to email him back to let him know. Makes me feel older and dumber than I actually am.


    Oh, you can edit your post after it is posted. Look for the little pencil on bottom left (next to red flag). Only shows up in your own post. I've changed this one 3 times! [​IMG]

    I think all of the "orginal" members of this thread came over from Cheyenns thread concerning her dinosaur chicken hatching eggs. Then granny decided to go and so it and created this thread. I know/rember that I was there at the beginning and suzierid , two crows and some others that we have lost along the way. They probably used bread crumbs to leave a trail and then their chickens ate the crumbs and they lost their way.

    Oh forgot also on Weds when I went to put on my dirty work pants for the farm I had laid them on the bathroom sink evidently the fawcett wasn't completely turned off whole "seat" of the jeans was soaked but in my not awake state didn't realize this until after I started pulling them up. My eyes got big quick.
