@Mini Horses , yep, I have considered the antenna route a couple times... a possibility maybe for next winter...

It's 2 a.m. and past time for bed.... just catching up on some posts. Been watching Yellowstone since I have never seen half the show.... got the discs so want to get up to speed. Good time to do it.
Love that show. For the other side of that coin there is Heartland. 😊

@SageHill ; Have seen the Heartland series advertised on Ebay.... considering it as a present to myself....
Have a dvd called Legacy.... 2 seasons and it was cancelled.... set back in colonial times, (no, maybe the civil war ?) and it is a shame they didn't continue it because the plot with the "evil stepmother" was just getting good.

Sunny out and got down to 36 last night. Nice enough now, light breeze but it is supposed to start clouding up later on; mid 50's now. Calling on rain for tomorrow starting before daylight. Going to be a good day to stay in I think.

Must be getting closer to getting over this as nose is running and the coughing is terrible with the drip down my throat. GRRRR:barnie:th:he. Oh well....

Designated a box to put in some of the little things I have picked up for Christmas presents... so they don't get put away and then "lost"....

Got to make a few phone calls to get 3 herds figured out. Then we will be into Dec and there are a bunch that will need doing and I hope to push most early to get done.

Time to get doing something constructive.

Sunday noontime. Temps down to 43 and only 51 now and it has been sporadically raining since early. Right now it is so foggy you can't see 100 ft away. Forecast says it is going to clear off and maybe some partial sun late afternoon as the rain continues east and north.

Went out and let the chickens out and the buff hen ran out the back again.

I just ate "brunch" of scrapple and sunny side up eggs.

Going to work in the kitchen a little bit again and see about getting a few more things boxed up again. Then going to take and try washing/spraying this new odor killer/disinfect I had gotten while out shopping a week ago... and see if that helps. Then maybe painting with the Kilz and see if it helps.

I have gotten 5 total mice in a week and I have seen 2 more that were chasing each other in the LR the other night. Have used up all the sticky traps so am going to get some more. These seem to have figured out how to steal off the snap traps and not set them off.

Got a call from the jersey farm 125 miles north. They have still not sold off all the cows so want to do another test. May as well, travel pay is more than the testing pay....I really thought all the cows had finally been sold.

Everything else is just going along quiet. Got 3 farms to talk to about testing....

Partially cloudy and sun today.... 46 up to 62. I finally decided to take the steps, and went and got my explorer because it was just too much for anyone to take it to the business 10 minutes away and pick up the other person. SOOOO, I took my forester, got the explorer and then talked to the next door neighbors of DS house, and they said, sure, we'll take you back to get the car.

I get a phone call from DS as I am getting out of the explorer at the business... and DS wants to know if I had been over to J's house because her father had seen a strange car over there. "Yes, I had gone to get the explorer, and the forester was there and that Wilma was taking me back over to get it." I said I had checked and the outback wasn't done yet so I might take the explorer to the farm 125 miles away to run it a little... and he seems to think that I shouldn't do it because then it will smell like a cow barn and I won't be able to get rid of the smell... I am not taking meters, only 20 bottles in the tray... and I can put my shoes in a plastic bag and trade for other shoes...
But he also said that J and GF went to visit a cousin today, (and YET, they still could not take 5 extra minutes to drop it off on their way to go visit) ....I didn't know that they were going to go anywhere... I just went and got it. I had said I was going to go get it.....Like I was wrong to go get it ????

Well, it is there, I will make a decision tomorrow to drive it or not. I am going to get a For Sale sign to put in the window... which I thought she was going to do... and after doing a little looking, J also did NOT put it on the internet like she said... I went on facebook marketplace, looking for it, and it said it had been uploaded about 25 minutes earlier.(today)..... So all these last 5 days, I thought it was out there... it wasn't. I may not be very good at posting things, but I am not a total dummy and I can go on and look things up.
I will get all the info and get it on Craigslist tonight. Don't know if I can get a pic uploaded, but at least the info will be there....
I had not heard from DS since Friday..... then get questioned if I had been over there and then lectured on not getting it smelling bad..... :smack:idunno
Going to lock in chickens here in a little bit, then go get a couple for sale signs and make up a sheet with info for the explorer to tape on the window....

I took most of the meters out of the truck and changed the brackets on 10 for a farm that I am going to test this week. I have to call him back later, he left a message, and after he gets done milking I can call him and set the date. Then I will talk to Geneva and see if she can do an evening at the 500 cow herd, before I ask DS.

Them two are flakier than a box of corn flakes. You thought the sister was the better of the two, and she ain’t much different. It’s YOUR car and if you want to go get it, it’s yours and you can do that. If you want to drive it to a farm, guess what? It’s YOURS and you can drive it wherever the heck you want to.

Nice of Miss Flake to list the Explorer 25 minutes before you went looking for it.

Good gravy, they all seem to think it will sell itself by the amount of effort they’ve put in! It’s yours, you gave them more than a fair chance to sell it. The heck with them - do as you see fit!
