Good a.m. All
Hope everyone is doing well. Having my coffee and trying to wake up. Thought I would wake up here at the keyboard talking to you guys.
TexasGal I have been so glad to get back here after getting my internet back I haven't introduced myself to you. Glad your chiming in again. I know how it is to miss this bunch, but I don't think I could have stood it for 2 yrs like you. It's great that you are back. Stick around and tell us what is going on.
Roaddy You got us good. But, you're committed to a labor of love. I know you won't be regretting your duties. I am looking forward to hear about your escapades with the young ones.
TJ Robins everywhere huh. Hope everything is going well. I hope things have gotten back to normal and the stress of everything is not so bad. You know that I'm glad to be back so I can hear about your HorseMondays.
Ladies Those recipes are awesome. There is something about the foods available in the summer months that's irresistible. I have finally gotten my fill of fresh veggies this summer. I am keeping the recipes posted so I can try em out. Thanx.
NM Jay really looks good all decked out in his new gear. Yall are making an equestrian fashion statement. Hope the saddle that you chose is working out good. Happy riding
NS You know that I'm a critter person, so you know I enjoyed hearing about the snake, spider and grouse sp?. We have an interesting snake here called the hognose snake. A couple of yrs ago I encountered a juvenile hognose snake. I was totally puzzled by the colors. Went to the trusty internet and found that this snake had orange markings when young. When I first encountered the snake, I noticed there was a toad frog stampede. They were fleeing the snake which I found out was one of the snake's favorite foods. The little snake fought like a tiger, but when he roled over on its back and played dead, I knew he was nonpoisoness. I studied him for about half a day then turned him back to terrorize the toad frogs. I really enjoy observing the indigenous species here. I have a pair of snakes in my barn, and have not seen any rats there for sometime. Yea!!
Well yall, I'm running out of steam and memory, please forgive. Got 6 quarts of tomatoes yesterday and with the other 4 quarts, I'm ready for venison chilie this winter.
Have a great day and be happy
