It ain't Tuesday.

Goat Poor

Little Grey and her two boys.

They are good sized billies.

One girl and one boy, girl on the left, from Patsy.  I need a boy / girl name for them so I can remember their names.  I have no trouble remembering Dezi and Lucy.  I thought of sonny and cher, but cher does not sound like a goat name.

Our first little Mirical nanny doing great.

Everyone else is still asleep.  Going walking now.  Walked 4 miles yesterday.

Goats and more

Little Grey has 2 nice looking billy goats born June 3, and Patsy has 1 of each born last night.  I don’t have pictures of the babies yet.  We now have both the little grey goats penned up and I think we may sell them and their kids.  We have way too many goats already.  I think I want to sell most of the ones the littler nannies.  When they have babies is a good time to sell them, for us anyway, because they are easier to catch and load.  I can carry the babies and mamas will follow.
Sister Patsy would be glad the goats now spend a good part of each day eating brush on the rock quarry.
Robert is in scouts again.  He really enjoys going.
Em gets to enjoy one of the major benefits of employment today, a day off from her job. 
I am taking a vacation day tomorrow, but we are not going camping.  We are going fence building around the garden.  George has the corner posts and the gate posts up, and the metal posts down one side.  When we get it completed, it will be a good goat pen in the off season.  It will have to be goat proof to keep them out, so it will also keep t hem in.  He said he might build me a shed in one corner, but if he does not, we have the little chicken to goat house he made for Clayton years ago.  He can pull it to another location.  He pulled it to our house from Clayton’s a few years ago.
I walked 6 miles yesterday, making 14 this week.

Shotgun Annie

Yesterday, as I passed the neighbor’s hours, I saw Shotgun Annie outside with a loaded gun.  She was gunning for a blacksnake that is making his home under her house.  I told her to leave it alone because it would eat the mice and rats.


I walked 3 miles yesterday.  Little Redhead went with me.  Em babysitting is going good for us.  Kids liked it because she played with them.  Papa liked it because he could do what he wanted, and he worked on the holes for the garden fence and gate.  Grandma  like it because she cleaned house and made the kids help.


Leon Magness, Ethel Garder, Walt Siebert and Earl Matlock all passed last week, but there was no need to post that here.  All who would have been interested to know this and read the blog have also passed.  I went to Leon’s visitation last night.  The funeral is today, but I am not going.
