To the powerful women.

Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning,
Satan shudders & says...

'Oh shit...she's awake!!

Food for Thought

Explains why Saskatchewan has no Daylight Saving Time...

Wise Old Indian When told the reason for daylight saving time the old Indian said, "Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket."

My Husband the mighty hunter!
Missed one of the two prairie chickens! This is a new way to hunt a chicken... hit it with the car and have it's head get stuck in your hood so you snap it's neck.

Luckily no damage to the vehicle... but the poor thing hung there a long time before we stopped and popped the hood to set the poor thing out. I tell ya... that chicken hanging there was making me feel a bit sick... at the same time we were laughing at the poor thing for the way it stuck to the car... odd.
I just think hubby had to one up our friend whom had hit a thumper the night before while we were out.... it was a thumper cuz it made a pretty darn good thump and broke our friends grill... ouch! Hubby got the chicken... no damage! All good.... I told him he wasn't allowed to hunt deer with my car!


Well, as the pictures before... there is a nest on the chute of this bin... as you can see now.. there is the nest and the momma robin.... Momma robin did some chirping at me, so I made my pictures quick and painless..... just not to disturb her too much....

Hubby says there are 3 eggs in this nest.. though the picture only shows 2.. there may be more by it seems to take a day er so between eggs.
This is the nest on the ducting.... see momma in there?
She was staying pretty good..... mind you I wasn't getting all that close.. I zoomed in good with the camera for these shots of her.
She did however take flight and I got closer to get a couple pics.

That's my birdie excitement.... will be neat when the babies are out!

Rockets and Roofs

Well, Here you go. As promised, better pictures of the rockets(aeration). This one below is the rocket moved out of the way after hubby figured where the duct had to sit. He then drew a rectangle on the cone so he would know where to cut the hole for the ducting. He started the cuts by drilling holes at the corners(very hard to turn corners when cutting).
Here he has one side cut.
Here the rocket is stood up and ready for the bolts that hold the feet and the ducting to be installed.
This is the outside ducting and the angle iron that supports it.
This is what the rocket looks like inside once it is completely installed.
This is what you see from the outside when the rocket is completely installed.
Here is a row of Hubby's hard work.....
The roof he didn't quite finish before we had to run home for a couple things....
Here is the beginning of a robin's nest under one of the hopper cones... should be neat to see if eggs appear.
Quite the handy work...
Ahh and here are the flowers my DH bought for me. They are beautiful. They are a few days old here and do show some of their age... but they are beautiful...
This one opened up beautifully! Love them! Love the Husband that gave them to me....
Well... that's about it. I hope you enjoyed the pictures.... Will catchya all again soon.....
