All,

I have been intending to ask this question and have kept forgetting. Now I have finally remembered. I fear the answer to the question will be (gulp!) bad. What has happened to Miss Devonviolet? The last time she posted to her journal was April 28.

@Baymule would have more accurate info I am sure; but @Devonviolet developed some allergies to the goat milk and they just decided there was no point in keeping them if they couldn't even utilize the milk from them. It was difficult for her to sell them as she had had them for quite awhile and there was one from :flypig given by the kids when things were disbursed.
I miss hearing how they are doing also, but hope that they are well and happy.

They did sell their milk goats and bought a couple of meat does to go with their Fainting Goat buck. She has been busy with various projects, but mainly they are staying home and trying to stay healthy. Neither one of them wants Covid. They are doing well.

All,

Just listened to this song a few minutes ago. It seems even more appropriate now than it did when she released it back in 1990.

All,

I thought I'd post something to let everyone know what we have been up to lately.

Last week the gate opener was acting up again. When it acts up, it will open up fully, wait a few seconds, then start closing again partially. It is designed to do that should it encounter an obstacle when opening. But here lately it will sometimes do that when there are no obstacles. I have learned that if I reset the controller by cycling power that it go back to working properly again. Well, sometime last week it acted up again, so I cycled power on the controller. I do not have an on/off switch to cycle power but instead I must disconnect one of the wires coming from the battery to the controller board. When I disconnected the ground wire from the battery, I accidentally touched something with the ground wire. The controller board no longer worked. I hoped that I had blown a fuse somewhere but all of the fuses checked out OK. I removed the circuit board to see if there was a burned component but did not see anything obvious. So now I will need to order a new controller board. Ouch!

I finally gave up on getting Lowes/Kobalt to respond to my warranty claim. Three times I contacted Kobalt, the first time by email, the second one by calling, and the third time by email. Each time Kobalt responded, I would supply all of the requested info, and on subsequent emails provide the earlier emails showing my responses. I would never hear anything from them. So after the third time of no response, I decided to call the store in Fort Smith to speak with the store manager. On both of the times I called the store, no one answered the phone. (I guess they are so busy with Christmas shoppers.) So I decided to give up on them and posted a review on Lowes website about the poor warranty support. I also ordered a DeWalt pole saw and a DeWalt battery chainsaw from Amazon, which is supposed to arrive next week. Miss @farmerjan, I will let you know how well these tools work to help you decide.

We have been working in the two circled areas, clearing out underbrush and small trees. Dummy me keeps forgetting to take pictures:
