I have fallen off the blogger band wagon the last few days! I know it is supposed to be wordless Wednesday,but since it has been a few days,I can't be wordless!
So here is some catch up! Hubby made it home fine and has been fixing his truck.You all remember the truck,the one that I was barreling down the interstate redneck ghetto thumping with The Boy to his music at 80 mph when the drive shaft and transfer case exploded!Well he is working on that and going to school this week way on the other side of Houston about a 3 hr trip one way if he gets the traffic!
We have had some animal problems.Fiona,my she devil milk cow,finally went totally berserk and gored Bonnie and Sweetie Sunday night.Thank The Good Lord,and I mean that as a truth and not just a saying,both are looking good.She got poor Bonnie twice and Sweetie once.They are not bad wounds, but painful without a doubt.I have been able to treat them at home with wound flushes,and sprays and antibiotics.It really stresses me when any of my animals are hurt or sick.They are both doing really well.Fiona is in a make shift pen awaiting a trip to the vet to be dehorned.Most Dexters have horns,they are a small, gentle breed of cattle and there is no need to remove them.Why do I always end up with the psycho animals?Hubby's mentally deranged dogs are another example!
So,how about something nicer.We went and cut our tree Sunday.We have a terrific tree farm about 15 minutes from us.
It is beautifully nestled in rolling hills and surrounded by east Texas forest.
As soon as we parked we saw the perfect tree! There was no need to roam the 20 or so acres to find the perfect one!
The Boy started sawin'.We always try to get a cypress tree,because they don't bother The Boy's allergies.The Boy gave up and Hubby had to step in!
Exactly how many of us does it take to cut down a little tree?
Apparently all 3 of us.I had to pull on the tree so the rather dull saw could get between and cut better.But it was no match for us!We toppled that mighty oak..um..OK ,little tree.
The mighty hunters with their prey!
The Boy managed from there.
No,that is not a real bullet hole in my window.Hubby thinks he is funny and put several of those stickers on my truck!
This tree farm had all kinds of stuff set around so if you wanted to make a day of it you could.I thought this was funny!
This is the junk truck waiting for "repair"! Many,many places in the country have these!
These are just their dogs they put up during business hours.I thought they were real cute until..
their eyes started to glow!They are either on a nuclear waste dump or these dogs are of the zombie variety!
There was a campfire and hot cocoa.
Games for the kids...
Who needs fancy electronic games?These kids look perfectly happy!
Funny story,one of the places I lived as a kid was so small we had 2 grades in each classroom.We had almost no play ground equipment.Someone dropped off 3 big tractor tires and we entertained ourselves all year rolling each other across the school yard in them.Ahh..the good ole days!
I made soap yesterday and plan on making another batch today and some green tomato relish. If it all works out I will show you tomorrow.If it doesn't,well,we shall never speak of it again!!!Just kidding,I don't mind showing you my flops,you all may have some good suggestions to help me the next time!
