Animal Friday


And what a long week this has been!

The folks got off early Monday AM. We sure loved having them here. Due to the hot and dry conditions in OK this last summer it looks like we'll be seeing more of them since they plan on driving up here to buy all their hay for the winter. LOVE IT!

The piggies have completely recovered from their ailment and are getting big. So big that they stand on their hind legs to look out the stone wall. Not the best picture of that, but you get the idea.

Thought I'd throw in a picture of the cows. Millie sure is getting big.

Lily and Marble, who have been running with the neighbors bull down the road, will be getting preg checked next week and returning home if pregnant or taking a trip to the butcher if not...

Chyann taking a spin on Gypsy the other day. Sure wish I'd been home earlier every day this week to have ridden with her since the weather has been absolutely beautiful - Indian summer with temps in the low 80's. She's been having a blast.

Chyann has been hired by the neighbors to bring Casper up to their house and give pony rides for their daughters Birthday party tonight. She is planning on painting Casper all up with pink paint and glitter. I told her to take some pictures for me since I'll still be at work.

No big plans for the weekend..
Tidy up my new office some since it is getting wired for work on Tuesday. Looks like I may make the deployment date of Oct 13th if all continues to go well.
Sure am glad I wont have to be driving to and from work soon as the sand mine that recently began operating in our Township started hauling the sand on Oct 1 and the roads, which are not all that great to start with, are being overtaken with huge semi type dump trucks. Today on my way to work I had nine of the buggers pass me and I sware they travel with their drivers side wheels right on the center line! Making me have to practically get in the ditch to avoid getting hit.
More on the sand mine at a later date.

Anyhow.. Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

Hmmmm......I bet everyone objected to the sand mine except the people who issued the permits! Enjoy the beautiful weather!

Regarding the sand thing... only thing that's important is that people make money. They don't care about anything else. It's a pain in the ass, but what the hell can the little guy do about it? NOTHING.

Frustrating, isn't it?

The pigs are getting big. Are they dinner pigs?

Long weeks for us too but they involved 'work' vacation was great none the less...I miss having cattle, horses, pigs, chickens around the place. Maybe we will get back to a bit of hobby farming when retirement hits in the spring.hmm.
Loved reading back, sorry it's been like, all summer, since I've done much blogging. Too busy. Loved the DrummerGirl, Grams and Gramps, fall colors, Colored horses, your PumpkinSon and of course, that awesome Thrifty find...WOW! Way to go Kellie.
