SD - I have no idea what went wrong today , I had it set better than the first one I did - I have not heard it yet , I do know that I made 5 videos today - trying to get one for SP and they were much worse !

No--I rattled it around with my sister and brother (you know, maybe even a joint purchase or something), and decided it just wouldn't work. But you got me to look at the listing again...it's off the market. It doesn't say whether it finally sold (it was on the market for a LONG time) or the owners just pulled it off for a bit. So unless one of my sibs bought it as a present for me I guess it is no longer an option.

It still pulls at my heartstrings.

Hey, don't sell yourself short. Even your everyday "Life on the Frontier" stuff is interesting for this suburbanite.

"Life on the Corn-Farm" stories are interesting too. (heck, the stories all of you guys tell are interesting--that's one reason I stay here. It's not just all riding herd on SP's exuberance. )

But the farming ones--they always make me think of my dad, who grew up in the rural VA mountains during the depression, and always kept a farming/make do with what you've got outlook on life, in spite of years as a chem engineer at Exxon and the suburban routine.

As long as I'm here, I guess I could say that neither Rich nor I fell on our butts this morning, and we didn't have to slide on them, either. We walked, but verrrrry slowly. There was a huge skating rink outside my cows' barn door, so I threw forkfuls of wet poopy bedding out there in sort of a line, hoping to make a bit of a path for them. Hopefully, they'll use it. I sure don't need one of the cows falling down right now. They're usually pretty good about being careful on the ice, and with any luck, they'll just decide to stay in today.

It's just now got up to 32 degrees, but it's low overcast and windy (what ELSE is new?) so I don't know if much is going to actually melt. Rich was supposed to go do the monthly shopping today, but we put it off for a day, hoping the roads and weather improve some. That's a long way for an Oldt Fart to drive in iffy conditions.

Well, THAT was boring. The cats are all sleeping (lazy sods!) and nothing else is going on....
I like your style Lannie!

StrykersPerson I called five instructors and no one is answering their phone.

Trying to set up some riding lessons.

Guess they are all out instructing or riding.



I will clean stalls for a free horse back ride!

That is interesting. I'd heard of the mites--they've been talking about bee industry troubles in CO for a number of years and had more or less concluded that mites were the problem--but yours has a lot more detail than what I'd seen. It is true, I don't see nearly as many bees as I did many years ago here, but it seems like I'm seeing more again in the last year or two?? So we can always hope.

I do like the gear shift sounds, though!

We stopped the beekeeping for a few years to clear more property, plant a bee 'garden' regroup, read, plan and start again soon.
It is the most fascinating hobby. We learned so much, but such a downer to lose them in winter.
That's what this thread is for. Say it and it gets buried.

The CRAZY woman I let move into my house thought she was a bee authoritarian. Simply because she was with a man at the time that kept some bee hives on various remote properties. He didn't have that many hives and had a "business" selling honey. Yeah right!

I can predict SP's advice: "Come down to Guthrie and give her (real) tractor driving lessons...


Now, I'm gonna chime in, to give SP some "advise", okay?

Since she's so disgruntled at her present job, SP should seek employment at closest JD Dealership to Guthrie, P&K Equip in Edmond?



Benefits of this Win/Win scenario- Call it: "Denny's Destiny Plan"

1. Close to home, only 10.8 miles away, at a job she'd love.

2. Her "Big Yellow" vehicle finance & purchasing experience would be invaluable and fit right in at JD dealer.

3. She'd also be a great JD salesperson- a JD superfan, pouring on the charm, with a little crazy mixed in... (surefire formula)

4. Be able to learn to drive & operate all sorts of JD lawn & ag equipment, while getting paid, without groveling for keys/ permission from Alan.

5. Can "field test" several pieces of lawn & farm equpment at her farm, during each year.

6. Huge employee's discount on JD tractors & parts.

7. Finally, would get to work all day with lots of cute, young men, horse lovin' types, in uniforms, many driving GM products....


Your welcome, in advance, SP!

I am going to start looking at sales positions within the John Deere Corporation. I can do inside sales from Oklahoma.

Thanks for the reminder!



I don't know about the huge discounts, though.

I worked for Home Depot part time, with benefits for a year+.

There was no such thing as an employee discount. Our discount was benefits.

Which didn't benefit me, I had those kinds of benefits from my full time job.

We did get first dibs on out of season sale items, though.

I snagged a decent drill set for $25.

They have these leashes on sale today at JJdog supply. They look very nice. I can't use them. My dog is stronger than I if he/she decides to to after something. I have had one shoulder surgery, wouldn't want another.

I liked one of the viewer comments below video: "it's easy with a waist like that!"

Smart marketing. Much better sales results than having Rosie O'D demonstrate the leash....


I have these MP leashes for Spock and Eva, real heavy duty leather, like horse equip. However, if you put around waist, like in video, Spock might pull you over if he spots a squirrel in his yard! Eva will chew through a nylon or light duty (braided type) leather leash, if left unattended. I also get their harnesses from this vendor. Made in Israel and shipped to US in 9-days by USPS Priority Mail.

Wouldn't have worked for me and Axel.

He hurt me jumping out of the truck on a down slope with just a plain old leash.

Dang! I went and said his name.

I miss him. He didn't even get to see his new house.

- Chasing 'prey' with no hope of catching it isnít good for a dogís psyche.

Speaking of Australian fires.

There is a rodeo facility about 6-7 miles from house. They have all kinds of events. Wildlife shows, motocross, monster trucks, etc.

Lazy E Arena hosted an International Rodeo Finals last weekend.

There were two Aussie bull riders at that event taking donations for the fires. It was all over the local news.

It is really sad that society has come to people starting wild fires on purpose.

Can't blame it on little boys playing with matches anymore.

This world is going to hell in a hand basket.

I could go on and on regarding what's wrong with this world, but I might offend someone.

You didn't forget about that plan already, did you?

https://www.dobermantalk.com/non-dob...ml#post4104519
"Chips and dip" for the chicken hawks. Chicken food.

That trip sucked. Had to drive in the city, in the dark, wet roads and I guess i am getting old. I hate driving in the dark!

Denny's Destiny Plan is a barn. They don't have barns at Tractor Supply, nor JD's.
