About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Chicks Will Be Sold

I wish you could hear Clyde's crow...it just cracks me up. He has such a big personality for such a tiny little cockeral.

Well, that lady to this day has not called me. She better not. I might just decide to give her a piece of my mind, not that I have any to spare...HA HA...lol.

Doesn't matter. I question how well she would have taken care of them anyway. I mean, if she didnt have time to come and get them, is she going to have any time to feed and water them every day?

The man who got five Golden Phoenix from me was waiting on five Silver Phoenix. I got those for him, and he wants to buy the five Sumatra chicks too...and I am giving him the extra three Silver Phoenix...I don't want them, and who needs just three. Better to go with the bunch. He is picking those up this evening.

The ten Serama chicks will be picked up this weekend. A man from Dalton GA was waiting on them. Told him the tale of the unreliable customer...he says their loss, his gain...and everyone has agreed, the lady probably wouldn't have taken care of them and they would have died.

Teddy and her family aren't going to be able to come this weekend. It is always something. I sure am glad I lead a boring life...all that drama and excitement would stress me. Her car is in the shop, CV joints going out...hubby has to work...porch was falling down off the house, hubby has gotten off his butt and has torn it down and has the framework up...I told her by all means, let him work on it. I know how it is, just let them do it while they feel like it. There will come a time when they want to slack off. She is also in the process of trying to rid her house of a freeloaidng boyfriend of her 20 year old daughter. He can't seem to find his dream job, so he sits on his rear all day in front of the computer, eating them out of house and home. This has been going on for a year. Daughter just adores him...so she has a choice, can leave with him, or stay home without him. This is all supposed to come to a head at the end of June...til hubby pipes in and says if he can get a job within a weeks time, they have an extra thirty days...Teddy was furious...she was going to stick to her guns.

Yep, I lead a pretty boring existance...and I like it that way. :)

I was not really surprised that she couldn't make it. I am not disappointed because I know she will come eventually before the summer is out, and I will be here.

Now we will see if Sherry remembers to call me on Wednesday to let me know if she is coming up on Friday.

I won't hold my breath...lol. Hey she could surprise me, we will see.

I discovered something this morning. This computer upstairs works better than the NEW one...lol. Online anyway. Much quicker response time. On  Flickr it takes like ten minutes for one pic to upload. Up here, I can upload 6 pictures in like a minute! Now that is the way it is supposed to be! So maybe I will just do my entries up here from now on.

I have to catch upon my picture taking, but for now I will show some pictures of my Daddys garden.

Daddy has kept a garden for as long as I can ever remember. He is very good at it, and loves it. I hope one day I can be as good as him at growing vegetables. Right now I just stick to tomatoes and chickens. I have to say that we are getting a lot of cucumbers and squash in from Ians efforts.

I will show some in this entry, and some in tommorrows entry.

Isn't great when you find something that works better than what you've been using?  I wish we had high speed internet here but we don't even have cable so it isn't looking like we'll be high tech anytime soon.  I am so happy you aren't selling Ms Unreliable any birds ~ I wondered what kind of mom she would be.  I love my "boring" life too, although our lives are far from boring.  I don't need drama either.  I know people who just live for drama and if they don't have it they'll create it!  Your dad's gardens look great, they are really lush & green.  I didn't do any veggies this year.

Kelly doesn't your camera have a video feature on it? If so then you could catch your roosters crowing and put them in here. That is great that your old computer gets your pictures uploaded to Flickr that quick. I am glad someone else is getting your chicks. I think they will be better off. Your Dad's garden looks really good. Al that green stuff looks lush. Enjoy your weekend where you have company or not. Hugs, Helen

I think God was looking out for those chicks that the unreliable lady didn't get them. Have a nice week-end. paula

I do delight in reading about your chicken farm. Note: I didn't say chicken ran__.

Are chickens and tomatoes a good combination?
