We have pest control at the house which includes termite stations. Where I now live, they would chew the house down in no time.
When I lived on the OH/PA border, Powder Post Beetles could be an issue, at least in the homes dating back to the 20’s, 30’s, etc.
@george the mule
, did you get your hay?
Another Suburu, lollol. You are like DH in that regard - he always has to have a vehicle to tinker with. He has his bracket racer for sale and wants to buy something to “modify” and make it just on the edge of NOT being streetable, lol.
, you live an exciting and eclectic life:). I can barely fix bacon & eggs - there’s no way I would fix jambalaya, much less prepare it for a large group. I tip my hat to you:)
, we share the same cleaning philosophy, lol. I am thankful for my home and appreciate it but mercy I do not like housework, lol.
My “guest” bedroom is so full of horse stuff, I can barely see the bed. Then there is the orthopedic dog bed I bought because it was on a good sale price. The Rottweiler doesn’t need it yet but it was on sale- it’s almost big enough that I could sleep on it, lol
, great to hear you are getting some quality riding time:). Rusty is my horse that never liked to go alone. Duke was the best at being by himself but he sure raised a hissy fit if someone else went and he was left behind:)
Do you have an ETA for moving yourselves and the horses UP?
That was quite the food fest you brother hosted. Anytime there isn’t room for dessert, that says a lot for everything that came ahead of it
It is also warming up down this way. We will be in the 60’s the rest of this week, which is ~10 degrees above average.
Sunday was the kind of day people with SAD would have been therapy appointments. It rained nonstop from ~9:30 AM until —well it’s now Monday AM and it’s still drizzling, lollol. I’m pretty sure there’s a moat around the big manure pile, lol
My horses did their best to stay outside yesterday but I wouldn’t put hay outside for them because I didn’t want if ruined — if they wanted hay, they needed to go in the barn.
Around 3:30 or 4:00 they had had enough and said “just put our pajamas on us, load us up with hay for the night, then get down here early Monday morning to let us out, lol
That segways into my “over and out”, I need to get to the barn before they find a cell phone and call the horse abuse hotline
Oh here’s one more quick thing — Freyja the Spoiled Rottenweiler has been here one year now. She is two years and nine months old. She does GREAT with the horses - Rusty likes her and he doesn’t like dogs.
This pic was two weeks ago.
Freyja and my Catahoula wear e-collars when they go out checking fences. They no longer need the e-collars to go to the barn, but recall can often go out the window when they see deer or rabbits and I’m not taking any chances.
Long as they listen to verbal commands, they don’t get the first warning, lol
Notice she has her tail. Her breeder started not docking tails and it is my understanding Germany has now banned tail docking in Rottweilers but I could be wrong. She has a strikingly beautiful tail but it’s not a “whipping tail” as DH called the Labrador’s tail - Sally could dent the car when she got her tail going, lol 50B2B515-DC7E-4C10-A930-6994737E7360.jpg
Whaddaya know, this new Ipad Seven lets me load multiple pics onto a single post. Everyone needs to fasten their seatbelts now, lollol.
This was taken the same day. Rusty and Joker eating hay as close together as they will ever get because can be really mean to Joker. Freyja is in the background, near Rusty’s water tub. 50B2B515-DC7E-4C10-A930-6994737E7360.jpg
