    Was I dreaming?

When I checked my pulse rate it seems fine but I am also at the point where the anti- arrhythmia drug should be out of my system. Will try to not...

    The mom brought them up to the mineral block and they had a ball chasing and playing in the yard. They acted like I mowed them a playground. The one is a much lighter color than the other one.

    Zuchinni ideas wanted

    Dang things are going gang busters and we have lots of them. Some have gotten big already. Looking for baking or grilling ideas. I am thinking of splitting one down the length and scooping it out and filling it with cooked burger and spaghetti sauce and maybe cheese over top?

    Update on Doc

    They could not do the cath at the big hospital he transferred to so he ended up having a triple bypass. His doc says he is doing well. He will be hurting for a while. That type of surgery makes for a long healing period so he will likely be slowed up till it gets cold and snowy.

    Picking hickory nuts.

    Took the RTV and stood in the bed to get some low hanging hickory nuts. Will raise her up in the backhoe bucket to get some more. They made about 2/3 of a bushel but much of it is hulls. As they split open you can peel the outer hull then wait a while to crack them open. Will have to race the...
