Stop telling stories!

I do too use my oven! I get scolded for using it in the summer when the AC is going, because I am heating up the house!

So there!

Not sure but this is what she told me......no response on lottery numbers.
Good luck finding your scope.
What your Mommy said made perfect sense! I went in the spare room and my sewing room. Nope! Nada! No telescope. I would recognize the box the second I see it.

I am trying to recall if I had it at my old place. I am going to have to grill Mister about if he recalls us using it. I really think we did!

Can I borrow your Mom for one more hint?

Did I give it away because I thought I was never going to REALLY use it? My gut says I didn't do that.

I still have three more spaces to investigate. Mister has one of them blocked off with boy work crap!

And the reason I am in a fervor to find it is, Mars is RIGHT there!

That's my drama and I am sticking to it.

Definitely not in Guz!

Although, I could go on the old version of Let's Make a Deal when it comes to my truck! Ask me if I got it in my truck. I wager I can scrounge it up!

That was hitting below the belt, but hilarious and true!

Umm... nothing up in the outdoor attic except the boxes and boxes and boxes of canning jars the previous owners left behind. Mister uses a ladder to get to the attic.

I think there is a canning pot up there, too!

Good morning everyone!

Did hot water heater changeout yesterday, not much time for CT.
Did some research of new tankless demand types vs. tank type. Last one lasted 12+ years, which is good for SA area with very hard water.
Will post a project overview later on today. Got to wrap up pipe insulation and some touch up painting in WH closet today, then on to next project....

Now, CT Class, can someone please give us an example of each?



Doubtful - "I'm doubtful Denny will find her telescope"

Cynical - "If Denny does find her telescope, she'll use it to snoop on her neighbors"

Sarcastic - "I'm 100% SURE Denny stowed her telescope right next to the z-Track keys."



Uncertainity vs distrust vs contempt—


The Mister: "That pile of dishes is getting pretty high."

vs. "Looks like you've got a lot of dishwashing, wan't some help?"

vs. "Alright then, if you won't let me in "your" kitchen, have fun loney-loney*!"


*"Loney-loney" is a term passed down from my grandparents to my parents to my DW, who still uses it today to describe any selfish behavior on the part of one's spouse or child. (usually males)


(SP, sorry to use you as example, but you provide us a treasure trove of material in your posts, along with a lot of good laughs!)

Good morning !

Took Little one to the the Vets for puppy shots yesterday , It was just right to be with her on her trip there , but totally understand why things are the way they are Now they have a Pet Nurse you talk to and give her all the info on your pet , really is was more like going to my doctors office than a vets ! I sure would like to see what happened in there !!! Reason was the Vet called me and she was laughing ! As we went over everything , then she said : Ken - You have a very pretty little girl and boy is she a live wire ! she also said she was very easy to work with ,like all the dogs you have brought us . Then the Pet nurse called and again went over things as well payment , she then started laughing and said they let her down and she took off with the Zoomies and she ran and ran , then hit the brakes and pooped a big one , so you don't need to bring us a bag of # 2 to be tested : ) I told her I was sorry about that and she went right before I brought her over there .

I did have a very nice talk with the Vet She's a keeper ! It was like she just needed to talk ,told me how people were getting mad at them , the phones are tied up because they are talking to people in the parking lot , it takes so much longer to do what they are doing to see a pet and it goes on and on , I felt so sorry for her , ago with the other vets in that office . I will admit , the place has changed hands and still don't like the way its being managed there ! yet the Vets are doing the best they can do with the conditions we are enduring at this time .

Well better get going

Have a great day .

Mocha is back to having the runs this morning, so the meds and Rx food aren't helping...I was worried before, now I'm getting scared.

Our vet put in the referral for a liver ultrasound, I'm going to do everything I can to have her see the internal specialist while she's there, they can run all the tests they want...I just need this girl healthy again.

Keep her in your thoughts, please.

I tried, but I can't keep up. I missed yesterday because just as I was sitting down to turn the computer on, Jasper started in with his "You are NOT where you are supposed to be!" bark, so I went to the door just in time to see Horus (the Arab) strolling down the driveway past the house. Looking past him, I saw Little John (the steer) grazing in the Commons area in front of the garden. If Horus and Little John were out, for sure there was a fence or gate down somewhere, so I went outside, and to make a long story short, I found the big tractor gate wide open (I still don't know how they did that), and between several back-and-forths across the property, got everybody but Little John back in the pasture. Helen was in the front yard by the road fence, but she came when I called her. They must have been out all night because Jasper's water bowl was empty and the chick waterer was totally destroyed. They were thirsty, but that made it easier to get them to go back in their pasture, where the water trough is. They could have walked right back through that big 15-foot gap in the fence, but they're stupid.

Anyway, I had decided to just leave Little John out and have Rich help me later, when he got up, but as long as I was out, I figured I might as well do chores, so I was bringing hay to the corral when Little John spied the hay sled and came a'runnin! LOL! He's built like a tank and easily tops 2,000 pounds, but he can run like a Greyhound when he wants to get somewhere in a hurry. I barely got the little man-gate open in time! He went rushing through and I had to jump out of the way, then he helped me unload the hay from the sled as I was TRYING to drag it over to the regular feeding spot. So they all got back in with not much fuss, but I must have done 5 miles and I was TIRED. I'm not really into doing that much exercise so early in the morning.

THIS morning, just on a hunch, I looked outside as soon as it was light enough to see, and there was Miss Helen, calmly grazing out by the garden. The boys are still in the pasture, and the gate is still closed. She has some kind of secret passage she uses to get out and back in (she'll be back in by the time we go out to feed them), but we can't find it. And she's not small! She's just as big as Little John - about the size of a hippo with an overactive pituitary gland, LOL!

And we waited all day yesterday for the roof guys to show up, but of course they didn't. Last Sunday, the boss guy called and said the materials were at the warehouse distribution center and he'd pick them up Monday and be out on Tuesday to at least drop everything off, and start work if they got to it early enough. If not, they'd drop the stuff off on Tuesday and start work first thing Wednesday. So about 10:30 yesterday morning, when we had seen no materials, no crew, and gotten no phone call, Rich called and the boss gave him a DIFFERENT story. (I wish when people were going to lie, they'd remember which story they told.) Now, the materials just arrived Wednesday, and he was JUST on his way out to check the stuff and make sure everything was there, then he'd load up and be out his own damn self to drop it all off yesterday afternoon. I told Rich that wasn't going to happen. I said no one in their right mind would drive all the way out here just to drop something off and not do any work, and I was right. It irks me no end that the guy keeps saying crap just because he thinks it's what we want to hear. Dammit! Just tell me WHAT IS HAPPENING WHEN, and I'll be perfectly happy.

So I guess they're coming today? I don't know. I busted my butt in 100+ degree heat (counting heat index) to get my hutch and buffet packed and all the cow stuff moved, and now I'm sitting in my tiny living room with all these big boxes sitting in the way of everything. I realize I have to be inconvenienced a little bit for the work to be done, and I'm OK with that, it's just that it should have been started yesterday and be winding up today. I'm not sure they'll even show up today. I should be grateful I'm dealing with a professional company. But can you even imagine if I hadn't found these "professionals" and was waiting on some neighbor who part-times as a handyman to do this? Sheesh, it would NEVER have gotten done. It's amazing that anything gets done out here. Everyone is a rancher, and that's their first responsibility (and I understand that, totally), and then they have part time work they do on the side. Our insurance guy only does insurance part time. He raises cattle full time. The guy that works on tractors is a rancher, and works on tractors when he isn't busy with his cows. Which is why it took 5 months to fix our Bobcat last year. Nobody can devote 100% of their time to any trade, other than ranching, because there's not enough business to keep them going. One of the "cons" of living uber-rurally.

Sturgis folks.
Anyway have a great day and do not over do it as you have a lot of work to do!!!! LOL
Rest and hydration will keep things moving in the right direction.
Believe it or not, we ARE getting Sturgis traffic, but I'd guess it's less than half of normal. This is Sturgis week, or it's just ending, I forget the exact dates, but normally, there would be non-stop motorcycle traffic going by here, and it's been very intermittent. Usually, bike traffic starts picking up in May or early June for the people who want to visit Sturgis and get the t-shirt, but don't want to hassle the crowds and raucous behavior of the actual rally week, then during rally week it's a madhouse, then it tapers off by the end of August(ish). It's disturbing to me because there are a TON of businesses in Sturgis that make all their money for the whole year during Sturgis Rally, and they don't have cattle ranches to fall back on. I fear that most of them will be going out of business, and if they're not around, what's the point of even having a Sturgis rally after this? I sincerely hope I'm wrong, but this might be the last one.

OK, I gotta go again. Helen's trying to break into the hay room, so I need to go put her back in the pasture. I have a chain on the door, but she's a cow, and a chain to a cow is nothing more than a polite request... GAH!

Three more weeks to the first calf! Then two more weeks to the second calf. Yes, I am certifiable.

TN, I just saw your post about Mocha. I pray she's going to be OK. I wish I could offer some suggestions, but she sounds like Zipper, and we never did find out what was wrong with Zipper. I'll just keep thinking positive thoughts for her and visualize her happy and healthy. I wish I could do more...

So Mocha is at her vet appointment.

Let's pray!

Amen.

Hopefully she is just having a drama queen moment and making you spend money.

Now, CT Class, can someone please give us an example of each?



Doubtful - "I'm doubtful Denny will find her telescope"

Cynical - "If Denny does find her telescope, she'll use it to snoop on her neighbors"

Sarcastic - "I'm 100% SURE Denny stowed her telescope right next to the z-Track keys."



Uncertainity vs distrust vs contempt—


The Mister: "That pile of dishes is getting pretty high."

vs. "Looks like you've got a lot of dishwashing, wan't some help?"

vs. "Alright then, if you won't let me in "your" kitchen, have fun loney-loney*!"


*"Loney-loney" is a term passed down from my grandparents to my parents to my DW, who still uses it today to describe any selfish behavior on the part of one's spouse or child. (usually males)


(SP, sorry to use you as example, but you provide us a treasure trove of material in your posts, along with a lot of good laughs!)


Glad I could be of help!



You all are getting the real me!

I sure would like to see what happened in there !!! Reason was the Vet called me and she was laughing ! As we went over everything , then she said : Ken - You have a very pretty little girl and boy is she a live wire ! she also said she was very easy to work with ,like all the dogs you have brought us . Then the Pet nurse called and again went over things as well payment , she then started laughing and said they let her down and she took off with the Zoomies and she ran and ran , then hit the brakes and pooped a big one , so you don't need to bring us a bag of # 2 to be tested : ) I told her I was sorry about that and she went right before I brought her over there .

I did have a very nice talk with the Vet She's a keeper ! It was like she just needed to talk ,told me how people were getting mad at them , the phones are tied up because they are talking to people in the parking lot , it takes so much longer to do what they are doing to see a pet and it goes on and on , I felt so sorry for her , ago with the other vets in that office . I will admit , the place has changed hands and still don't like the way its being managed there ! yet the Vets are doing the best they can do with the conditions we are enduring at this time .

Well better get going

Have a great day .
Being apart from your puppy exam is mean.

Even my mechanic lets me in No Mans Land to show me what is heading South.

Wonder when we are going to get a Mocha report?

Update on Mocha.

The good news is, the ultrasound was clear. Nothing in her intestines, and her liver looks good - the internal specialist said it's normal size.

Bad news is, they suggested we do a Gi panel (TLI, PLI, Cob, FOL - Texas A&M), ultrasound guided liver biopsy, endoscopy upper GI, CSU liver biopsy panel, and a priority biopsy w/ desc 2(IDX) (no idea what that last one is, but the cost is $383.17.

Well not really bad news. Bad news financially, maybe, but like I told the doc, I just want to find out once and for all what's going on with this girl. If you guys remember, she's never had a totally solid stool her entire life...the best we've ever been able to get it was maybe a 4 from 1-5.

The doc is leaning towards copper storage disease, or something in her gut (I can't remember if she said hepatitis?) which is causing her liver to also act up. Of course I'm no doc but I don't think it's copper storage because the denamarin she was taking did absolutely nothing to bring her ALT levels down.

And yes, we have pet insurance but her elevated ALT levels are listed as a pre-existing condition. IF the doc can delicately word the claim form to avoid elevated ALT levels and make it sound like something intestinal, we can get 90% back. If not, then, well, it's gonna hurt LOL

Honestly, yeah this is going to cost, and maybe we have to foot the entire bill but the bottom line is getting that girl healthy, and that's it.

So they are keeping her and will do the biopsies this afternoon, and we can pick her up tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the update TN ! Glad nothing showed up on the scan !

There are lots of ways to control Copper Storage , Ali was on pretty much a no Copper diet made by Hills and there is another one - She was also on Denamarin and Zinc Gluconate , Good luck TN and give girl a big hug for us .

$383.17 ain't bad. Could I eek it out? Sure. Don't want to, though. Told you the girl is going to be okay!

I hear you about the good and bad news stuff, TN. At least you're a little further along to figuring out what is going on. And you've eliminated a fair amount of really nasty stuff in her diagnosis.

I *think* that last IDX thing may be a priority biopsy reading with digital results at a reference lab with specialist pathologists, which will give you quicker results—at least I know there is an IDEXX reference lab that does that kind of stuff. Maybe??

Best of luck in Mocha's tests and hope your wait for results isn't very short.
