Happy 4th Of July Friday night Conversatio

First my apologies for missing the Canadian one. It was Tuesday?

How are you? What is happening in your world?

Big plans this weekend? Or a little less this year?

What's on the menu? Anyone cooking out?

Anyone going to fireworks? Or are they cancelled in your area this year? Or not your thing?

What about at home? Anyone hit the fireworks stands that pop up? My grocery store even has a section every year. Or wish neighbors wouldn't hit them so hard? Who has been hearing them all week?

Is this a pain for you and your horses/ pets?

And whatever not related things that are on your mind. Please post them as well.

No fireworks here....nearest place doing them is an hour or two away. We've never bought any or really plan on as far as I know. We ordered HomeChef last week, got delivered Wednesday. We ordered three meals.....ate one a few days ago, tomorrow we'll eat Goat Cheese and Crispy Onion-Crusted Steak with grilled Parmesan Asparagus. So far we're super impressed with how the meals are packaged, and how they are! Its insanely convenient! If anyone wants more info on it let me know! We're thrilled with it so far!

As most of y'all know, or barn cat went missing a few weeks or maybe a month or two back. Ive been looking for a few online and finally found some ready to go, so looking forward to that as mice have been horrible here this year! So we go and pick up the new barn kitties Wednesday morning, already have a call in at the vet to get them fixed and vaccines. I was going to go the shelter route, as there is one a few hours away I was approved at but they dont have any barn/outdoor cats available at the moment so.

I bought Rodeo and Bella lycra flymasks about a week ago, Bella got hers off 5-6hrs after I put it on, and Rodeo never got his off so happy about that, they are rubbing and trying to get them off though as there are tears in the mesh over their eyes already.....oh well, I have noticed it has greatly reduced Rodeo's head shaking when he has it on though!

I take Bella to the repro vet this Friday (next week) for another ultrasound, Im so hoping she will continue to be pregnant this go around! If not, Ill have to wait to rebreed til next year as Im not sure I can finally pull off three AI's in one year so fingers crossed for that!

Other than that things are good here, rain a few days finally caught us back up to average rainfall for the year, I was worried about fire season so glad it rained some! Back to sun and high 80s, low 90s the rest of the week though!

Hope everyone has a good weekend and Happy 4th of July!

Hello:). Glad to see your usual Friday thread. Iíve been logged out but readl8ng along and was starting to worry:)

No fireworks or anything in my county as this little rural place is really on the Covid19 upswing.

I imagine my neighbors to west wonít let me down and will shoot off enough rounds of rapid fire ammunition for us to pay to get both big trucks very nice paint jobs, lol

They are at least respectful enough to stop shooting by midnight but I set the timers on the big barrel fans to shut of at 1:00 AM, just in case:)

Other than this post, Iím taking a break from the forum for - who - knows - how - long ó-. Iíve reached a point in life where all the stupid I read about is really starting to tee me off, so itís better that I just log off and keep my thoughts to myself.

Hugs to you, dear @aubie , and to all of those of like mind but have ten times the patience that I have:). Hopefully allíyíall will know who you are:)

The nonsense has creeped into every part of life now. I try to focus on something else. Like this nonsense.

Happy to see this thread. Thanks, aubie.

We don't go watch fireworks unless we just climb a hill on a friend's place a mile or so away. I've no desire to get into traffic or crowds. I wouldn't be surprised, though, if, as the grandkids get older, they don't talk me into going into the whole mess. They're pretty good at talking me into things.

Riding tonight after it cools. Tomorrow I start a trip. It's work-related, been planned a long time, and can't be changed. Oh well.

Have a fun, safe weekend whatever y'all are doing.

ETA: Fireworks don't bother my animals. I lease pasture on a ranch with a gravel pit (dynamite) and a hunting club (shotguns). We're be in rough shape if loud noises bothered us.

Going over to youngest sons for cookout and fireworks since he bought some to put off. There is a place that manufactures and sells them not to far from here.

@aubie glad you started another Friday night thread too.

@walkinthewalk you will be missed. And don't be shy about coming back every so often and bringing us up to date on your fur babies.. I will say this though the longer you don't post the harder it is to start again. BTDT.

So you take care and keep safe and if you do something bad you got your husband to blame it on. LOL....

Evenin All.Busy day at work and Iím tired tonight. Gonna be long (12 hours) and who knows how busy. I know what I have at the moment but tomorrow...


All fireworks have been cancelled in my area. I have seldom gone cuz Iíve always been at work. No plans. Iíll have Sunday off and back to work on Monday.


The 2 Corgis donít like any loud noises. The rest of the critters donít care.


csimkunas6 (how do I do the @ thing) we could use some rain in my area.


Walkinthewalk that is why I left FB. Hope ya donít stay away to long.


Boots wish the humidity would drop here then it wouldnít be so hot. Iíve not ridden in a minute.


Howdy Regal!

We went to the lake for four days with our oldest daughter and her family. There will be fireworks tonight but, I'll stay at the house with the dogs to keep them calm. Usually works out good except for the aerial bombs. Then they hide in the bedroom closet.
For supper we had taco salads and it was great. I was glad that was so easy as we had a busy day. This morning I went to check on the dock and it had broke loose including breaking a cable loose from a deadman in the lake. We'll have to have a diver come out to reattach the cable. Tomorrow will be great we are going to have a fish fry. I'll cook them in the fish cooker and they are always the best! May even deep fry some bacon, it is great!
