It's SNOWING again.

But Rich went shopping yesterday, and believe it or not, was able to find everything that was on the list. Including some TP and paper towels. With what we have already, and ruthless conservation, we should have enough to last for a while. Because we live so far away from everything, we usually keep a good stock of things, just in case, but every now and then, items need to be restocked.

For instance, I just opened my last bottle of bleach, so I had it on the list to get another 3-pack from Sam's. I told him when he left he probably wouldn't find bleach anywhere, but I still had the one gallon bottle, so it was OK. But no, there was a whole SHELF of bleach boxes when he got to Sam's. I guess people are buying up the wipes and sprays and stuff, not wanting to do the extra work to use bleach out of a bottle. I dunno, but anyway, my cow laundry (and now chicken laundry) will not suffer.

It wasn't all sunshine and roses, though, he did have to hit Sam's, two Walmarts, and two Safeways to get everything. But he's a shopping fool, he just powers through the aisles, gets what's on the list and nothing more, and wastes NO time. LOL! He doesn't like me to go shopping with him because I slow him down, always finding "something" I need to look at. That's OK, I don't do "people" well anymore, I'd rather stay home with my critters anyway.

The feed stores seemed to be operating normally, too, so we got alfalfa pellets and beet pulp shreds for the cows with no problem, as well as a big bag of sunflower seeds for chicken treats, and shavings for stall bedding and nest boxes. I'd heard that wood shavings were in short supply in some places.

Anyway, that's beside the point, the point is, not only did he get everything on the list, but he was home in record time! Only 7 hours from the time he left until he pulled back in the driveway. He said there was very little traffic on the highway, and the stores weren't all that crowded (although the people there were stressed and crazy). So, WHEW! Another monthly shopping trip completed. And before it snowed, too.

Hopefully, the snow will melt this afternoon, if it ever stops coming down. They said less than an inch, but there's more than that out there already. It's wet, though, which means it will soon be slush, and should melt pretty quick. This is one day I'd prefer NOT to have to milk a cow, though, because she'll be sleeping inside because of the snow. She will have BEEN outside, however, so she'll be covered in wet, then she'll lie down in a fresh plop of poo, and I'll have to clean that all up before I can milk. But that's part of the job. The "dirty" part, LOL!

If I end up with Co-Vid19 I will wonder how the hell I got it, because I don't go anywhere!

Lannie?

I have a feeling you are the safest one here!

Before it snowed? And, a month's worth? I want to go shopping with Richie!

Somebody needs to post up the post of the difference between how men and women shop again!

Somebody posted it on the CT!

I ain't going back to look.

Or, am I?

Personal Experience

When I go to our local Sam's club (don't go to Costco- always crowded, even before Covid-19) I set my watch timer when entering store.
Normally, I can get all items and thru self checkout in 10 minutes (pre CV-19) We always get the same stuff, just resupplied and men don't buy things NOT on the shopping lists, exception being a very good tool or equip. on sale at HD...

When DW goes to Sam's (or local HEB gro) she always ends up with a full basket of stuff. It drives her crazy when I point out my 10 minute shopping procedure....

No, I need the original diagram/flow chart.

Skip all the crowded aisles and come back for a final swoop.

I thought you all knew me better than this.

I see a crack in the chicken thread forming.

Really, cleaning house is on my agenda. Just in sheer joy that Spring is here!

Just not today.

Coming out of hibernation and assessing my predicament. As we all are.

I came home from work after my last shift last night to the sound of the Z and the smell of cut grass.

Better than a chocolate Easter bunny's ears!

We learn stuff from your daily reports everyday about animals and farming.
I suspect, even our veteran farmer Ken, might pickup a few tidbits, as well. Could be wrong, but I don't think Doc has been making homemade cheese and butter recently?



Your right Spocksdad , LOL , Never made any cheese before - ( I could say something else here )- But don't want to visit the WS like you had too LOL, LOL ,LOL !

That's a fun part of ag - we all learn from each other . Many , many years ago , they had a traveling ag show in the fall - it was held in a different county that surrounded Indy - ( Shelby being one of them ) So every 5 years or so , it was in our county - it was a must ! go to event - it was on 4 or 5 different farms - hog ,cattle , dairy , grain sometimes at a ag company - AND they had food at every one of them , Dairy = milk shakes and toasted cheese sandwich's , hogs , pork chops , cattle = rib eye and sandwich's - it was the greatest !

Wife would ask , where do you want to start - it ( took all afternoon to travel to all of them ) that year , they had it at a large dairy , I said we will start next to our place for lunch ( rib eye's ) and end up at the dairy for Milking time and a milk shake ! Even though we were both raised on a farm - neither had been to a state of the art , modern dairy , they had posted up the time that milking started and we were first in line to attend that - Total amazement ! Total ! BTW- they had lots of gals in there putting on milker's , washing utters , really a cool thing to watch - just glad I was not in dairy ! .

I've made cheese (paneer), but it hardly counts, I think, because it is not aged--it's a soft cheese like ricotta (which actually was originally a whey cheese, but isn't typically made that way now.) You drain it and press it, and then eat it (fry it in cubes and throw it in a sauce.)

And you use lemon juice, vinegar or yogurt to get it to start curdling--I never really looked hard for it, but I'm pretty sure ordinary suburban grocery stores don't carry rennet.

All I remember about hard core truck shopping was I came home with Guz. Took the day off to do it. I went there bright and cheery for a Chevy and came back home with a GMC.

Don't regret it.

I was a happy truck shopper and back home in six hours.

I think I need to stay with the car industry.

I'm in the men's category for shoes. I just don't see the point of having hundreds of shoes.

I have one pair of each of these--snow boots, hiking boots, hiking sandals, casual shoes (vaguely loafer type) for winter, casual sandals for summer, dress (heels) shoes. That pretty much covers my needs.
Oh, I forgot--a pair of fiip-flops and a battered pair of sneakers for stuff like running agility.


I'm wondering how the doberman collar fetish fits into this though.

Eva On Duty

When I work in garage or in front yard, I usually put "Ms. Snoopy" Eva on tether in front of garage on her mat.
(Previously posted the "Coyote running down street" video clip)

She loves to watch the comings and goings on our street. If she barks at a passing person/dog, I immediately have her sit on mat and act civil, then give her praise for that, after "threat" has passed. She has an eagle eye and notices any strange vehicles in neighborhood or strange persons, such as canvassers.

Today, while cutting front yard and raking live oak leaves, Eva looked cute sitting on her mat, protecting the Ryobi 40v blower....


Eva Protecting Dad's Blower from Squirrels and "Squirrely" Humans




In case you missed Coyote clip:

https://video.nest.com/clip/a6bd7bae...6fdd1172f8.mp4


Eva's Barking Translation:
"Git back to Oklahoma where you belong- No chickens round here!"


Ten Doberman Rules
Poke Everything.
It's New? Bark At It.
Moves? Chase It.
Doesn't Move? Smell It.
Liquid? Spill and Dribble It.
Treat or Food? Wolf It Down.
Not Food? Chew It Slowly, Be Quiet & Hide From Human.
A Toy? Shred & Destroy It.
Stuffed? De-Stuff It.
Bites You Back? Wrestle It!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!! I pretty much stay on the far outside of that flow chart for women - my husband is definitely in the tight triangle of mens shoe shopping. I shattered my left foot in 2003.... threw away every pair of heels except for black patent leather ones.... that I never wear either, but could not part with. Finding shoes is so stressful now - most of mine come from SAS. SAS shoes are expensive and mostly old lady shoes, but they fit and are comfortable. I am never without pain in my left foot - so comfort is key.

[QUOTE=StrykersPerson;4122287]If I end up with Co-Vid19 I will wonder how the hell I got it, because I don't go anywhere!

I wonder the same thing about myself. I have been staying close to home and truly feel like I have the virus right now. I never get sick. In fact, I don't even have a primary physician as crazy as that sounds and so I called the Corona virus hotline and got the U of U. I told them I was not a hypochondriac, but worried about jeapardizing my family and would it be possible to take a test? They said, well, tests are expensive and hard to come by, and really I just need to stay home and treat it like I would any flu and if my temperature reaches 104 or over then to call. okaaaaaay.

Dang it.....
There's a lot of stuff going around this time of year with the same symptoms, though.

Get better soon.

I know, Mel. At first I thought it was mental. Started with the headaches, then cough and heavy feeling in chest. That alerted me, the fatigue and low fever. I am not panicking for sure. I just thought it wouldn't 'hurt' to take a test. Regardless, I am laying low. Sending Rich to grocery store (what a mistake) or any other errand that is needed which reminds me. Jada needs refill on her Thyro tabs and Proin. They are out.

I like red licorice.
SP and LDi like black licorice.

'nuff said.
Mel,

I don't even believe that red licorise is licoriser, And I don't believe The American Licorise Co manufactures very good black licorise.

The stuff I really like is the Australian black licorise. Now that's really licorise for the licorise lover.

And as far as sardine's go--I could probably eat (and like, that sardine salad) if you left out the sardines and used smoked oysters instead.

Somehow I think that sardines are an acquired taste and unfortunately I've never managed to develop a taste for them. But the salad looks good!

And! Where are my yellow peeps?

Filed for unemployment.

The only thing I will be able to pay for is my house and truck.

I can't imagine where horse food would fit into this equation.

Very appreciative that my contacts came in yesterday. I was worried that they would end up in lock down. Had them delivered to work instead of home. Goats might have ate them had they been delivered to the house!

Let's get through crazy situation, friends!
All this talk about various Easter candy--how weird some of the preferences are.

Peeps? Peeps of any color are ICK! They remind me of marshmallows--I don't like marshmallows--not as peeps, not in hot chocolate or on candied yams. And chocolate bunnies? Another one--almost all of them I've ever eaten (or tried to eat were stale--and/or barely tasted like chocolate).

I also don't like jelly beans--black (licorise) or any other flavor. And I don't like chocolate that is flavored with fruits--like chocolate covered cherries or orange flavored. Peanut butter and chocolate are OK and so is choclate with mint but as for the rest of the things people flavor chocolate with--another big fat ICK!

OK, I got that off my chest now I need to go work on the back yard or the flower bed that's full of grass.

ABTLH

PS Malted anything tastes like the stuff you use keep moths from laying eggs stored clothing. Since I think that combining most stuff with chocolate is a cardinal sin you better believ I don't like it.
