That's probably what I need. And the price would be?

And, you say Best Buy is the best place to touch and feel it? After I touch and feel it, would that be the best place to purchase? Or is there another route for the actual purchase?

I have a one wide window with two blinds hung inside it, side by side. Corded blinds have mostly been outlawed, so now all they sell are the push up/pull down kind. One particular blind would never pull down and stay exactly where I wanted it...it would bounce up just an inch or so after I let go, fine so far as coverage and looks went, but I could never get it exactly even with the other blind (which would pull down to wherever you wanted it and stay there when you let go.) I don't think I'm particularly OCD or anything, but it would drive me nuts to have two blinds in the window that weren't lined up with each other, so I'd push and pull a couple of times on the wonky blind to try to line it up before (usually) giving up.

And then my son suggested--pull down the tricky one; let it chose where it's going to be, and then match the other one which behaves itself to that length.

Duh........
That story is comical!

I am not OCD at all and that bugs me! I've been watching redecorating shows this evening and wish I had the talent for texture and colors and making a house feel welcoming. Nah! My house is basically a farm house. I am not going to get upset if a guest smudges something in my house.

How can I complain when animals come trudging through with dirty feet. Myself included.

I struggle to keep counters and coffee tables clean.



I am going to have to get new carpet, though. Which means we have to move a bunch of furniture, some of it heavy.

Plus it doesn't help that there is a skunk hanging out somewhere very near. I believe under the house. Little stinker!

On another topic.

Lannie?

I've got some left over Purina Equine Senior food. Probably less than a quart. Is it okay to feed it to the chickens?

My property is the last property on the road. It runs from the road down to the building at the bottom. No neighbors to the left. Stupid neighbors up top. Don't hear a thing out of the neighbor to the right. Neighbor down South, Mister is the only one that visits. I think that neighbor is the one that put my spare on one day. They are all related on that side of the road. The North neighbors are the A-holes.

So there you go!

Well Guthrie was lucky to get a Tractor Supply. I will have to go back towards work to hit a Best Buy. No biggie! Thanks for the info!

I was thinking about how much longer we had Mocha really take it easy and was gonna comment, then I remembered why, because we also had the gastropexy done at the same time...bigger incision and more healing time.

ECIN Mel - I will make you feel better - many moons ago - many -- My wife drove one of our tractors in the spring - the pass right in front of the planter , dad always drove the planter - the last day we were planting -we blew a hydraulic line on the planter - in ran threw the tongue of the planter , along with a bunch of other hoses - I took off to get a new hose while dad took it apart - I told dad -- DON"T take out the broke hose - we would tie the new hose to it and pull it threw = easy right ? well no it wasn't ! We worked and worked and couldn't pull it threw - Wife was sitting in the pickup right next to us - she asked - do you guys want to get done today ? We looked at her and before we could say anything - she said just tape it to the outside - it won't hurt anything and then fix it right when we move it home - I will never forgot that as dad and I looked at each other with a big grin and I ran over to the truck an got a roll of tape - 5 minutes later and the planter was running ! We still laugh about that one still today

I also have a Bosch dishwasher and love it. Same with Mel - doesn't dry totally, and the wash cycle is longer than my ancient dishwasher, but I really like it. More efficient than my old one.
11-18-2019 12:01 PM
ECIN Bosch 300 Series 24 in. Stainless-steel Built-in Scoop Handle Dishwasher
Item 4321006Model SHS63VL5UC
Your Price C$891.99 = $667 US$


Good pick 6-7 ---- You know - In the long run - that Bosch is a lot cheaper than the legged kind

melbrod They always think they're better before you think they're better. I remember Capri getting loose and doing full-on zoomies all around the yard at about 7 days past abdominal surgery. And yes, doing that she managed to open up some of her skin stitches (not anything really inside, thank goodness). Having a girl dog can be a...bitch.


B67, I have a Bosch 300 series purchased last year. I'm very happy with it.


My only complaint is that it doesn't dry as well as my previous dishwasher--the plastics stay wet (everything else dries well, but I have plastic glasses for ordinary use)--but I guess that's the direction a lot of manufacturers have gone for energy savings. You do definitely need to use the wetting agent stuff they make.

Since she's okay for "leash walks", I think it will be fine. She wouldn't be doing anything more strenuous than she'd be doing on a walk - I can easily modify any search to make sure of that. I can definitely call my vet to make sure, but...the more cooped up she is, the worse she's going to be at home. If I try to crate her non stop she'll be flinging herself around in the crate, trying to leap around the room when I let her out... I'd have to set up small searches for her at home anyway just to burn up some mental energy!

spocksdad FYI- NYT article being published Tues about Llama Therapy Animals from our Delta Pet Partners of San Antonio organization.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/14/w...t-therapy.html


Spoke with the Rutledge family, llama owner/handlers, at our last seminar. They said they also regularly visit with special needs kids at Morgan's Wonderland theme park here in town:

https://www.morganswonderland.com/about-us/


Spock has never seen a llama in person, but has seen full sized horses at the HADR farm during Doberfest events.

#1 Rule for dogs & horses- don't sniff their butts or you might get kicked! Happened to our previous dog, a rough collie, Nemo, many years ago, on a farm visit!
