Good morning Susan.  Was warm in this area.  Went down to the PA farm and

helped out some.  Always stuff to do.  Not much gets done between my visits. 

Brandy played a little yesterday with the neighbor dog.  It's more controlled now

because Brandy's tumor goes into her leg bone and it's weakened.  If she breaks

that bone it's over.  She has a new appt on the 7th for an intravenous pain med.

She is happy most of the time.  Have to get our walks in early today, rain coming.

Sorry you are still suffering with the cold.  Maybe soon it will let up.

Good morning Kitty.  Had lots to do on the farm.  Had to route a hose through

the basement wall out to the chicken coup, mowed the lawn, cleaned out all the

kitty liter bins.  Took my Monte Carlo SS, noticed I have a cracked taillight lens

from the blizzard besides the 4 dents.  Ordered a hammer puller with a spot

welder built into it.  So you spot weld the dent with the tip of the puller, then

pull out the dent.

It's hard to remember when you had the back surgery, know it's been months.

Hope your pt helps it.

Have a good day.

Dear Kitty ~

Is there any  spray/lotion for them when you go outside?   I think they live on deer....correct?

We have so few here....they cull them..the deer that is.. (sad face).

Rainy here.  Made an appt to pleasure me....a pedicure at 1:00 p.m.

((hugs))  Susan

Dear Ernie,

Makes me happy that she is playing and living out a happy life.  Rainy here...  Finn is doing his low crying....I guess he wants someone to come into the bedroom and take him out.  Spoiled!

Rainy here for the next two days.  God's glorious water.  Will help my plants.

the ticks can be on any critter that goes out...dogs cats etc.......so you just go out to weed the garden or mow and you do a tick check when you come in...I'm not sure about a spray but IO wouldn't trust it....

Good morning Kitty.  Hope your back continues to improve.  My wife has a bad back.

Many in her family do. 

It's raining here now.  Supposed to stop for a couple hours around 7 AM so maybe we

can take a short walk then.  After that there's a good chance of rain all day, all night,

and all day tomorrow.  Yesterday I got our two walks in and mowed the lawn before

the 3 days of rain started. 

My granddaughter only had last eve off work this week but my daughter had a headache,

so don't get to see granddaughter this week.  Wife had spaghetti last eve and Brandy had

meatballs.  I had a salad.

Maybe get a new blade installed on the chainsaw and other work in the basement today.

The old blade wasn't working well even after I sharpened it.

Have a good day.

Good morning Susan.  Brandy complains she is bored sometimes.  We might

have a short gap in the rain this morn to go on Brandy's walk.  Brandy has a flea

and tick collar on all the time.  I was putting the liquid on their necks in ears past

but switched to the collars.  The ticks carry Lyme disease and another one that's

worse and takes less time.  Brandy got some ticks this season and I bought a new

collar 3 months early.  I think I read that mice are the main tick carriers though they

call the one tick a deer tick.  They have 8000 or more when they have babies so it's

almost impossible to walk through an area without getting some on you.

I was watering the areas where we planted grass last Fall after the Summer excavating

but put the sprinkler away and moved the hose to where wife can use it for the flowers

we have surrounding the pool.  I installed a pool water leveler so we don't need to maintain

the water level in the pool anymore but had the put in a Y fitting so the flower hose and

the leveler hose can both exist behind the house.  We suspect when we start rebuilding

the farm house in PA we will only be up here in NY one day a week for our other daughter.

Glad Finn and Brandy are happy.  I get sad all the time remembering Brandy's time is short.

Have a good day.

Ernie
