Hello everyone. Woke to a little warmer morning! How nice to not freeze first thing.
Was raining but no ice so I am counting my blessings.
Nettie you are awsome with kids and iffin I had any young and needed someone watching them, I'd look for someone just like you. I know the kids love being with you. Sounds like you all had fun. We watch animal planet all the time. DH favorite channel.
Arejay is back from her trip. Maybe she will tell us about it later after she gets a rest.
Have you guys tried the spray skin so soft bath oil for the animals, it does help to repel bugs too. I spray it on my little goats in the summer. Just a light mist over them and it helps. We are bad to get the biting flies. I'm close to dairy farms and black angus farms and we got LOTS of bugs and flies and mosquitos around here. Usually there is a couple months during the hottest part of summer you have to RUN straight to the car to keep from being attacked. I cannot go out except long sleeves and constantly swinging my arms to fight them off. AWFUL!
rrm, becareful about ticks. Last year, just after I arrived here my sister was admitted to the hospital with tick fever. It took her the better part of 6 months to get back to almost normal. She is still having some problems due to the tick fever.
Rained all night and most of the early morning. Too muddy to play in the garden, plus I just cleaned all the muddy shoes. Guess I will spend the day perusing my gardening books. I suppose that's as close as I will get to the real thing today :0( I don't know how you folks in the snowbound regions do it...I'd go crazy if I had to do without my garden ALL winter. Guess it just makes you love it all the more when spring comes around,huh?
Doctor says she won't get any better. But another tick bite would be worse, so she has to stay away from areas with ticks. I keep the yard cut down and we have a guy come and spray the yard and house every other month.
mekos ... I've used the SSS on myself, but for 3 full size horses everyday..
A. That would be pretty expensive
B. My pumping finger would either get extra muscular or poop out completely. LOL
I need something that covers everything, bugs, flies, ticks, etc., like the cattle eartags do. I had to buy a full box of tags, which isn't cheap!, and need to use them. I used them on my horses halters before and they worked very well, but had the proper eartag gun to attach them with. I also put them on my dogs, at my veterinarian's suggestion, to keep critters off of them. My dogs are small, 12 &22 lbs., so I use 1/2 tag on each one. PLUS ... they last about 3 months and don't 'wash off'.
When you say tick fever, is that what you mean or is that another name for Lymes disease? I know with Lymes, if you get them off within 24 hours of them biting into you, they will not of had time to transfer the disease to you and you will be OK.
Can"t you run them on those circle things like you put keyrings on to protect your aniamls.
It is the same thing I think. it is very bad thing to get.
I got your Card and Thanks, I loved it Crit. Al. got my Card and snowman glasses. I can see tiny snowmen even with my eyeglasses on, so neat. Thank you Love the Calendar. Will take them to church to let them mail to someone. Thank you.
Hugs and nuzzles to both of you.
Charleen and Charley.

OH Marti, Look at them share a chair! How cute! Do they get along all the time or do you have fights? They look cozy. Like best friends.
Nettie, I'd say someone had HIS arms around you with that deer. I'll bet your guardian Angel had her hands full getting that deer higher than the car. So glad you are safe. Get some rest!
you are wright my little car is a ford focus great on gass but my son calls it my silver bullit. butterfly licens plate on back garden club on the front. great for running around in. and i like to run around if you know what i mean. im a going to bed hope i don.t get sick again good night all. nettie
Mojo was raised with cats from the time he was a puppy. BTW he is half pitbull, half bluetick.
He thinks that the cats are just part of his family. All three of my cats and Mojo share my bed every night, but Troubles is the only one that cuddles with him.
mekos tell her to go to an auto parts place and get some plastic pull ties they work real well for doing things like that and come in alot of diferent sizes jost cut excess off nail clippers will work or anything sharp enough to cut through them. i used yhem to puy doll bodies togeather they ware real long time. love nettie
hi al got a nice package in the mail today thank you very much i like all of it parker will like yhe glasses the tree has little snow men all over it. the first thing he will say is how do they do thatnot a good question for gmaw. think i will tell him its magic;he will also have to have a few sunflower seed. thank you again love nettie .
Al, I got a package today and so sweet of you. Thank you so much. I love it all. http://nny.com/snowcraft/play/
Here is a cute little game to watch from Arejay. She had to do something to keep her busy while she was on vacation in the sun on the beach. She, Nettie and RRM in Green. Got Loca, Al and Marti in RED!
Hope you all enjoy.
Wonderful Nettie. Now you can read up over the holidays and be an expert when spring arrives and grow some beauties!
Thought you all might like to see a video of Arejay's trip to the beach. She just got back a few days ago and shared this with Mitt and he shared with me so I wanted to share with you. Looks like she and Charleen had FUN! http://elfyourself.jibjab.com/view/B8aCUlzKy1qaaJqC
LOL! Love snowball fights! And thank you so much, Al. I absolutely love the glasses! Wish I could find some here! Where on earth did you get them? My grandkids will love them when they get here in 2 days, lol! Course, they'll have to share them with me, cuz I think they're great! And thanks so much for the sunflower seeds! It really makes me anxious for spring, and Christmas isn't even here yet.
Al and Marti, we need to go AWOL and join the red team;o)
Yeah, my kids and my DH and my MIL all have tried to snatch my snowman glasses from me! They are the coolest thing. It's funny to look out the window at cars driving by - snowmen flying down the road in the dark;o)
I think the snowball fight has been rigged, that's just not fair during Christmas and all!!
I got the snowman glasses at a local dollar store and novelty shop here, but I bought the very last ones to send out to you folks. There ain't no more to be had, so just keep them in store for next year.
The sunflower seeds came from the very same plant shown here growing off my back porch. The plant was multi stemmed with many small flowers, quite tall about 10-12'. I managed to save the seeds this time before the church pigeons next door stole them.
Since I started this project in mid November, I may have missed a couple of Newbies. My apologies to those I might have left out, but it's hard to keep track of you all. I still have lots of Sunflower seeds left if you want some or need more. Just let me know and I'll send you some.
Here Nettie, but at that price I doubt if I'll ever see one for real!
Oh you wimps, can't take a little snowball fight. Man!!!!
Did you all love Charleen and Arejay at the beach video?

I leave in the morning for a hunting trip with my nephrew. He gets to hunt for free this weekend, no license, no deer tags required for 15 yr olds and younger. He's already packed the car and is ready to leave. I'll be off the computer until Monday night, so all you people have a safe and sane weekend and try to stay out of trouble.
I got this really weird dmail, and didn't know if I should report it or what. Did anyone else get this:
This D-Mail was a Group Blast to one of kaju32's group. Your replies to this D-Mail will only be seen by kaju32.
this is ramdas in muscat.I am garden lover and want to introduce myself to all of u. if u are interested in communicationg me , kindly do it.
Patti, can't help you there, as I didn't get one, but I would probably delete it, just because. Besides, if it is legit, they can communicate with everyone on any of the forums, just like we all do. And I wouldn't be giving my phone number out to a bunch of people I don't know, or my private email, and pretty sure I wouldn't be calling them either ;-)
Thanks Mitt! And wishing you the best in the coming year as well! And wishing the same to all my dear friends here! May you all have a wonderful year full of good health, happiness, and prosperity! With our weather here, don't guess we will have to worry about paying for it later, lol! But maybe we'll have some nice weather then, especially since it's about 35 below now with the wind chill! And another foot of snow to boot LOL!
Fresh baked cookies and babysitting! Just don't get any better than that! Thanks Al and best of everything for you in the coming year as well! We offered to babysit the grandkids, but no such luck, lol! And as it turns out, with most of the roads closed, kids wouldn't have been able to go out anyway! DSIL works as a manager in a big casino, runs the poker room, so he, of course, always has to work anyway, but we do get to babysit them Superbowl weekend!
Thanks Kelly! And Happy New Year to you as well! Hope your year brings you good health, happiness and prosperity! Sorry to hear about your weather, but it's probably my family's fault! They were down visiting not to long ago, and must have taken some of our cold and winter weather down with them and forgot some of it there, lol!
