Surprise Birthday Present! 3

Surprise Birthday Present!

Today is my birthday.  I’m now the ripe old age of 26. To be honest it wasn’t a very great birthday.  The girls have been sick with a cold and Ada hasn’t slept more than two hours in the past three days. I am totally exhausted, like to the point of being non-functional. When I went out to check on our chicks this morning something had eaten the skin off of the head of one chick.  The poor little thing was still alive,...

Fail Tooth Removal & Duck Face Photos.

Today I finally went to the dentist for my wisdom tooth.  The one on the bottom left has been throbbing and burning like crazy.  I’ve spent several nights recently crying all night long, or waking up sweating in pain.  Can’t chew, can’t function.  Effing tooth!  I called the dentist this morning and they saw me right away. I was hoping the dentist would just be able to pull it, but no such luck. The x-ray showed a big infection under the...

Hound Beast, Win or Fail?

Oh, Hank… I cleaned out the fridge last night and didn’t get a chance to take it out yet. He ate half a big container of expired yogurt, a box (4 sticks) of expired butter (wtf I’ve never had butter expire before…had a really short date), he also ate half a bowl of really old Panera broccoli and cheddar soup, half a thing of old roast beef deli meat, some wilted spinach, a few bananas, and who knows what else. Bonus: Most...

Meet-Up and Duck Face Amos.

How do I keep running out of time to post here?  I love writing down thoughts and sharing pictures on my blog, if not for any other reason than I enjoy looking back at it years later.  I’ve been doing this for quite some time, since maybe 2002.  I’m too tired to look back and check the date of my very first entry, but it’s been years! I can’t seem to catch up on anything lately.  I need a pause button.  Or maybe a part time...

Pooptastic.

Rosie woke me up this morning by screaming, "Momma there’s poop EVERYWHERE!  I can’t play with my toys!  WAKE UP!" Oh, why me? Why? Hank, our coon hound beast, always whines when we put him in his crate at night.  He does this awful bark yelp noise.  It goes on for as long as 3 hours every night before he stops.  The other two dogs just sleep on the floor by our bed, but Hank has to go in his crate.  I decided to...

1/4/2011

The Great Dane found his owner!  He belongs to a college student who went on vacation.  A friend was supposed to be caring for him.  Bet she’s pretty pissed at that friend.  He also apparently had on a collar and tags, but they are no where to be found.  She didn’t even realize he was missing–my neighbor had him outside and another neighbor recognized him.  They called the owner who was on her way home from her vacation. Anyway, I’m so...

Whoa, Big Buddy. 4

Whoa, Big Buddy.

My new lens came today!  So exciting.  I can’t wait until I can test it on the girls outside.  It’s so large, but fast and sharp.  Love it. I tested it on the chickens outside in the sun. Isn’t my rooster hilarious looking?  He crows like a dying sheep. It works pretty good in low light indoors as well. HAHAHAHHA. New lens aside, the real story of the day is today’s 365 photo. Buddy. 3/365…a quick snapshot. (Note: Ada and Spongebob are making the...
