Anyone who wants to see

the old home place the way it has always looked, better come down and look tonight.

Because, what is that?  A big machine?

Uncle George borrowed a BIG backhoe from work.

They are off to dig holes and more holes.

By Monday night, we will probably just be one BIG hole.

Week almost over, off work for a whole week, Yipee!

Son and George have been working on a pad for the rental RV.  That is the electric hookup on the boards, all done.  Bill, Junior has a bed set setting on the floor in one bedroom and a big couch.  I think he usually sleeps on the couch.  Plus there is lots of empty floor for kids to pitch sleeping bags.  Or, the kids might sleep on the couch and table bed in the RV.  

I cleaned the RV today.  Not to clean freak standards, but all I am going to do.  It was not that bad, because son has never actually lived there, only slept there when he was around.

August 21, 2013 was a big day in HISTORY.  We went to the Big D.  All was final that day with no problems.  I am really glad.  Did not even have to go to court, just signed papers and the court finalized it.

Tuesday and counting down the days...

Both the kids and me.  Papa told them they would get to go to the movies again this weekend, so every night it is how many more days.  We have an audit at work Thursday, so I am asking how many more days.

It was hot Sunday and they played with the water hose about 2 hours in the evening.  We got in trouble when Papa got back because we were not watching where they were running the water.  We have been in trouble before.

Today after school, tired and hungry.

Papa let them go down to the neighbors and ride the 4 wheeler back that he had left down there.

Sometimes it smokes like this but not all the time.  I don't know why.  Maybe the way she shifts it or maybe she gives it too much gas.

They were going really fast.  Usually we do not let them go this fast.

And usually they do not ride it together.

They were having a blast.

We will all probably be in trouble again when Papa gets back from the neighbors.

George put the feed trough in the chicken yard and today I fed the goats some sweet feed in here.  He has bought a tool to make weathers out of the billies, but we need to be able to catch them to do that.  I am feeding them the sweet feed that I got for the babies and they really like it.  Most of them went in the pen to eat.  Maybe we will get them fixed this week end.  We have 4 billies and need to just have one.  We are keeping the white one as our billy.  We will probably sell the others next month.

Foggy Sunday Morning

Goats in the fog.

We saw two coyotes on the pond this morning.  George has seen a couple of coyotes that he says are big and yellow.  He thinks they are part dog.  This one seems to have longer legs than some coyotes, but otherwise looks like all the others.

The same one as above in a different light looks a little more brownish orange.

I am cooking ham and beans today.  I think I will fix cornbread and potatoes to go with them.  Maybe even real fried potatoes.
