    Just came in, took a shower and collapsed. We finished butchering the Cornish cross chickens. 15 of them. They are in the ice cooler in the kitchen floor. It may take me another couple of days to get them processed. I think I need more jars and vacuum seal bags.

    they are! They are working from 8am until I let them quit. Today the youngest age 9 I think will be done at 7:30 for an hour to play before bed.

    The older 3 worked until scouts. .. and there they will clean out a storage shed until 9pm. Then they still need to do night milking.

    Saw these 2 this morning at the rear (West) entrance of Kingwood Hospital, Kingwood Texas. An employee told me either hospital security of sheriff dept had shot and killed them either late last night or very early this morning. The hospital grounds and parking lots are abundant with well manicured landscaping and flower beds. The road is a short curvy road that dead ends, well lit, and traffic is slow (30mph speed limit) leading only to the medical facilities, so I'm pretty sure a car didn't hit them, not while they were alive anyway. This is in a very well developed area, immediately adjacent to US 59 (soon to be renamed I-69) that is a suburb of Houston but it does sit between the East and West forks of the San Jacinto River. The whole area, (Kingwood, Humble, The Woodlands) are over run with these feral hogs and they almost nightly make a mess in the yards of some very high $$ subdivisions.Last year's floods had driven them temporarily out of the river bottoms but now, the green lawns and dry weather have brought them back with a vengeance..
    Both are mature & pretty big, I estimate minimum of 225 lbs each.

    Those are some big hogs! They sure can destroy a yard or plow up a hay field. Nice neighborhood or not, the hogs are coming!

    Coffee is ready. I set out the toaster, bread and home made plum jelly.

    Just coffee for me. I need to get a move on to go to work. Still raining off/on days....2 more days. Then they say 3 clear before yet another wet front moves in for a few days.:th

    Crops will be late this year. Fields are too wet to work. BUT those who got their corn out before this began are looking at good growth.

    My grass is coming on so strong it will be a challenge to cut!
