We Interrupt Your Internets...

The frog will be bending over backwards for about a week trying to keep up with mail and news. During a blueberry planting event, there was an unfortunate accident with the tiller. To whit, Weatherdude accidentally cut the cable between the satellite dish and the modem. (Who put that cable there? jeez.)

Ummmm, I have an old-fashioned phone, though I do have text now. No internets. No dial up any more. No wireless card, no hot spot, nada. I shall be haunting the coffee shop, the library, even *gasp* McDonald's if I have to.

But I'm in a pretty good mood about it. It put things into perspective, though I'm not looking forward to the repair bill. I suspect new cable will have to be run and it's quite a distance from dish to the house. (Because, like, it's a big, ugly, dish-on-a-pole and we chose to hide it behind some bushes.)

Here, have a photo or two of Weatherdude using a chainsaw on the last of the Eastern Cedars along the driveway. They've been severely damaged in the last couple of winters and we decided to finish what the snow and ice began.

Do you know, after all these years (35 if you count dating), he can still make my heart go pitter-pat.








In other news, now that you've all ooh'd and ahh'd over Weatherdude using his chainsaw, we added six young hens to the coop on Friday. They're feisty (which is good), but still too stupid to come in out of the rain or go to bed at dusk. So last night and tonight, Weatherdude threw them into the coop. By tonight, three went in when chased. It takes about a week of this for them to get the point, that the coop is safe in the dark. And today he found a pullet egg, so one of them is already laying!

It's a good sign in the sense that it means they will all be laying within about 2 weeks. Sometimes we've had to wait a lot longer than that. Pullet eggs for a while, then the double-yolkers. Weatherdude just reminded me to get photos and post them to show how different they look from the mature ladies.

Hi - nice blog - but - the Emergency Room Trauma Code nurse in me screams, BUY THE BOY SOME SAFETY EQUIPMENT!
steel toed boots ( 70% of all chain saw accidents involve the left foot) helmet with screen, gloves and cutter's pants. I was helped try resuscitate a man who cut his own femoral artery and bled out before he got to the hosptial - - I could go on and on>>>>>>>>>
