Would you just spit it out?

I am wore out from mowing a portion of agreement of what to mow.

BTW

I checked Mister for bruises. He doesn't have any.

Whew! Dodged a bullet! He could have called the Sheriff Dept on me!

Oh boy, Mel, that sounds....umm....well...uhh...very exciting!

I'll pickup a copy to keep on my nightstand, to read if I ever have serious insomnia. I'm sure it's in the 5th or 6th printing by now?

This definition was by Samuel Johnson in his "A Dictionary of the English Language, 1755, among the most influential dictionaries in the history of the English language. There was dissatisfaction with the dictionaries of the period, so in June 1746 a group of London booksellers contracted Johnson to write a dictionary for the sum of 1,500 guineas (equivalent to about £220,000 in 2016).

Johnson took nearly nine years to complete the work, although he had claimed he could finish it in three. Remarkably, he did so single-handedly, with only clerical assistance to copy out the illustrative quotations that he had marked in books." Wiki

Not really. Just can't stand OU that much!

Bowling is another thing that gets me all riled up. I like kicking the other team's a$$es.

Sports in general? Depends on what, who and when. I can take them or leave them.

Skip the rental when you are here. We will drive you to and fro.

You are starting to be pain Cuz.

I can turn you loose on Johntanic/Johnny. You can help me round up goats.

You and Scotty can get the tractor running!

Beau never wanted just a Bar, but a Pool Hall & Grill...would be Fun.
- I'd call it "Stix & Stones"

I use to tell my close friends, in the office....if I had to pick a career again.
- I'd open up a used car & truck lot
- my name for it was..."Shister Auto Sales"

^^ While temping, the Company name...might just be a dis-tractor.
- so my joke, always got a good laugh
- I'd say, its that Damn name...I can't think of a better one, and my dreams are on hold

There is zero chance I could do another day in a row. I'm...only mildly functional today. Also, my parents are generous to even do the huge part one! I bet they are sore today, too...they are in their 60s after all. Not that that's OLD, but...my dad's back was definitely sore after that much digging!

Ken, the migraine drug I'm on that's making a pretty big difference is called Emgality. It's a new class of drug that's been out for a few years now, called a CGRP inhibitor. There are three of them, Emgality, Aimovig and Ajovy. They all are a preventative drug, a once a month shot you give yourself at home. Without going into two much detail, CGRP is a neuropeptide. Studies have shown that CGRP is released during a migraine attack. So these drugs either block the molecule, or the receptor for it. The idea is that perhaps if you get migraines, taking this drug can prevent the attacks, or reduce the severity, or...

For me, the one I take has decreased the frequency and severity of my migraines. There are a few side effects, but nothing that would make me stop taking the drug. At this point we don't know if over time it will become less effective.

If you're so inclined, you can read about the drugs here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7413335/

I've never had it in my yard before and it just appeared out of nowhere.

Actually, if AJ has some advice on making sure I don't get it back, or being able to kill it without harming the plants if it shows up again, I would LOVE to hear it! I have a tiny bit in my backyard that I just keep pulling up because I won't use chemicals back there (because of the dogs).

I am very worried about getting more in the front!

The fun thing is that I get to put some new plants in the front next spring.

My parents' dog is actually doing pretty well, Di! She's settled in very well and they adore her. She's very smart. Definitely has some kind of herding breed in her. Loves to chase critters and is very, very tuned in to every critter they come across on their walks. She's jumped off the dock at the lake into the water, which shocked them! Because of covid they didn't get to do more than one intro class, and she really does need some training...she's a bit challenging on a leash because of the intensity of locking on to critters and wanting to chase. She's not terribly fond of other dogs. But she's a super super sweet girl, loves her life. My parents aren't really big into training classes, so I don't know how much progress they'll make on improving her leash manners, but she's not horrific. She could probably improve with good effort. I'd personally put her in a prong, but that's me She's smart as a whip.

Going to try and attach her photo for you. She has a couple of hand me down collars from Sypha

Pretty pup MC ! To me she has Aussie looking ears , Thanks for the picture and tell mom and dad I said Hi

I will say that Mel does a outstanding job of herding the cats on the CT And will admit this CT is pretty fun to read , I compare it to going to the coffee shop , Here in Morristown , we have a restaurant called the Blue Bird and they have a large round table were the kings of BS sit and fix the worlds problems , and another long set of tables all in a line for the reserve BSers ! LOL the CT reminds of the Blue Bird - Just never know what you will hear of the topic will be , Of course , Farming most times leads the discussion

Everybody have a great Sunday
Butt Kisser!

Keep on trying.

I am still her Fav!

So is Beau.

Too thick with flowers because some of what is in there has just spread and spread...things like phlox, and daylillies...I'm not the best gardener, so I don't plant thoughtfully and I'm not good at thinning things out. Plus, one of the beds unfortunately got some creeping charlie this year, and it just TOOK OVER.

My parents are just incredible gardeners. Their flower beds are beautiful. (Apparently I didn't inherit that gene - ha!). So, yesterday, they came over and we simply stripped the bed with the creeping charlie bare. Everything came out. EVERYTHING. We worked for about 6 hours. Dug everything out. We saved my peonies, which I love. Those actually came down with me from our old house up in northern Minnesota and survived being transplanted once, so hopefully they'll survive again, and we were able to strip away the weeds (I hope!). Saved a bit of bee balm, again, hopefully removed the weeds. But everything else got tossed. Laid all new mulch (there was some red lava rock that all got removed).

I am exhausted, sore, have a bit of a headache, but it was so worth it.

The other half is even larger, but no creeping charlie so I don't think we have to strip it bare, just thin everything and remove what I don't want anymore, sort of rethink the design. Maybe next weekend? I'm tired already.
