L is for....

The Last day of NaBloPoMo posting for a couple of months at least. Hot diggity dog! I am going to be going out of town for a couple of weeks at the end of May/first of June. Heading back to the West Coast for a visit.

Not too much really has been happening here, so I probably won't be posting every day. The garden is starting to come along, as are the weeds. Ellen is getting more and more active, as you might expect.

The neighbor who was burned out is now living in WI, but we keep getting lots of visitors asking if he is selling this or that thing. Last night some guy came up to the door (Husband was out milking) and asked me if I knew anything about him and if he had a "mammoth jack" he'd sell. I'm thinking, "What? What kind of car jack is that, is it for a tractor or something?" But I didn't say anything, I just referred him to my husband. It wasn't until later that I thought; "Oh, neighbor breeds mules; it was a jackass he was wanting to buy." Then when the guy left hubby said he'd asked the guy what he did for a living. He said, "Oh, I'm a Vietnam Vet, but I raise Redbones now." Hmmm...I had to ask; "What's a Redbone?" So I found out a Redbone is a breed of 'coon hound.

Mammoth Jacks and Redbones. You learn something new every day.
