    Just sat down....hurt all over and tired but have that "I got $hit done feeling" :)....goat kid went home, cleaned up his stuff and got laundry done.....put up more t posts in buck yard fence, finished inside for them, got hay and feed , moved them to their new area....cleaned goat house and was filthy......then went inside to shower, just set to take off clothes and got a text, the people wanted to know if they could come and pick up neighbors goats today instead of tommrow ..went next door rounded up goats and coached them here and put them in kidding pen...naturally it became a flippin goat rodeo as Rose jumped over the door and we dove after her . I picked her up and put her back in the pen... (note to self...not good at 67 to pick up 70 lb. Goat)
    Noticed that Amber and Hope are VERY pregnant and had a hard time getting up from a laying position, they are due on the 22nd....decided that a two hour trip to a new home was not a good idea at all...so that has been canceled till kids arrive . I want them to go but it wouldn't be best for them to be moved at this point.
    The folks showed up for the goats , got them loaded and went to pay neighbor.,....time to feed critters again,
    Queenie has pulled her fur and made a nest...
    Goat noise nerghbor behind me is in the hospital, found out he has cancer in his bowels, so it will be quiet out in the goat yard...all sounds will be from real goats, not "old goats"...
    Finally inside the AC, shower, and riding the recliner. , can't wait for tommrows projects :th

    You had a busy day. You are tired, but it is a good tired because you got so much done. A well deserved shower and recliner time makes you feel better.

    Today we spread rock in the driveway, then I did 3 batches of plum jam, got 15 pint jars. Tomorrow we start on slaughtering Cornish Cross chickens. Went to neighbor's and filled up ice cooler from his ice machine. We'll get an early start in the morning. I'll have BJ sitting under a tree, pickin chicken. :lol:

    This guy has had so many "we thought he was goig to die" hospital stays... and came out fine that he just may end up with a bag after they remove the tumor. ..., but it is not good news, his wife is very nice, I feel bad for her.

    Our plums are getting ripe but I think they all have worms in them.
