YEAH!!!! Our water test arrived yesterday by email!!!! We’re good to go!!!! Now, if the weather would just cooperate and not get down in the 20’s at night, we’d consider turning the water on to the campsites!
And the parts we needed for the TempControl still have NOT arrived, but GUESS WHAT??? Dan found an extra set last night!!! So today we can at least get the bathhouse put back together and open it!
We have had what I would call a wet spring so far…at least compared to the past several years. So with that, one would normally be concerned about mosquitoes and black flies (the black flies were pesky a couple of days ago when we were clearing out more trees and brush, but they weren’t biting, just wanted to be in your face). HOWEVER, WITH THE COLD TEMPS I HOPE THEY HAVE FROZEN OUT THEIR POPULATIONS!
I have frozen hummer feeders this a.m. but I guess that is OK, because there are no hummers in our yard yet. Last year by now I had one lonely female (which was odd because the males always show up here first). No crazy orioles either.
We are going to get an appointment for Nick to have X-rays next week. He seems better, but there is something going on other than “old age” or at least we feel that way. No amount of bran/fiber in his diet seems to be helping THIS problem. Just having X-rays will be hard for all of us because we will have to leave Nick. They will have to knock him out to do the X-rays otherwise he will NOT cooperate. He won’t be mean, but he will not lie down just because you want him to. If you know anything about the Husky breed you know they are fiercely headstrong. So the hard part will be leaving him there in a cage. He will be scared and think he has been abandoned. I’m going to ask if I could try to give him a couple of Xanax that morning before we bring him in. I’ve still got Chewy’s supply left.
Well, time to refill my coffee mug/jug and get some breakfast so we can tackle the bathhouse. OH, yesterday I called Bowman Gas and asked them to fill up the tank at the bathhouse and the one at our house…I didn’t even bother asking what the cost is by now. When we bought ahead in October, it was $1.79. We’re at 30% at the bathhouse and about 50% at our house so I’m looking for a BIG ouch.
No one has responded with any brown eggs in the Newberry area! I CAN get them at the store, but they are those organic things and I would like just plain old, home grown brown eggs!
