A Test and an Introduction

This is the first blog I am doing with my tablet and my new Bluetooth keyboard. We are heading to Chicago, and that means…..road trip and road trip videos. I have to be able to upload photos and videos, and so far so good.

These are Carrie’s dogs. I took a few photos this morning, to use as practice.

Stella Blue

Just look at those eyes!!  Xena and Stella are in love. When they are together, they kiss constantly. When Xena’s back was better, she use to hump Stella all the time!

 

This is Yona (pronounced yo na), which is Cherokee or bear.  His mama was a Blue Heeler and the dad is an Australian shepherd.  He is seven weeks old, and I believe he is reading on a third grade level already.  He is mushy as can be. Just a really sweet puppy.

Odds and Ends

Xena, my worrier princess…not a typo. She has been a frightened dog most of her life, so this video is really a big deal.

This is my friend Melisse’s puppy, Levon. What a sweet boy he is.

It is bigger than the chickens! They are a bit afraid it, actually.

My Meals on Wheels route is beautiful

My route is very rural, but it is beautiful.



This view is repeated over and over during the fifty mile route.

I have no clue what was growing here, but I thought it was pretty. The name of the road I was on is Rabbit Ham. Odd huh?

Same but different.

Chickens free ranging along side the road.

I think I posted a photo of this barn once before, but I like it so much. I like the color of the soil in this one.

I posted a photo of the camel once before too. But look at them all!  They keep them for the milk. Ugh.

Chickie updates and lots of photos

These chickens are so use to getting dried meal worms, that they come running when I go out there. If I put something else in, they just look up at me like, “Where are the worms?”

I read about an idea of putting excelsior pads in the nesting boxes. They make it easier to clean. So I took everything out of the inside coop and cleaned. Then I put diatomaceous earth and food grade lime in the coop and the nesting boxes. They prevent bugs and such, I think. Then I put the pads in, and I waited.

I had kept them out while I did the work, and that drove them nuts. When I opened the door, they immediately ran in.

That night, when I went to close them up and do my nightly count, guess what I found. The stupids were all sitting on the floor of the coop; no one would get in the box, except Pea. It took them a day to adjust. Tonight they were all in the boxes.

Fall or dead three? I do not know.

I am going to do a blog of photos I took while doing my meal route last week. I will schedule it to go up automatically tomorrow night. Don’t expect this always. lol
