No, but more that one will probably give me some heartburn....

Took a vacation day today to finish (Start?) getting ready for the Muster trip next week. Loading ammunition, preparing vehicle, check uniforms.

Brought my girl home from a week long stay in the hospital. Thank goodness. Hopefully they got her straightened out. She seems to be almost back to her baseline. Now we have to get her moving around again after a week flat on her back. She's asleep in her recliner now.

Going to be a hot match at Dare Co tomorrow. I'll decide in the am if I'm going. See how she feels in the morning.

Ford radio.

It's aftermarket.  Casio, I think.  It's also 20 years old, so I guess I can't complain too much.

100 degrees today.  Naturally, I got a call at noon that a friend needed help cleaning out a storage locker and loading the stuff into a uhaul.   At least I don't have to drive the 12 hours with it.

Morning starters are up....

Rain t-storms gusting winds presently, across Central Alabama. Tornados in nearby counties last evening. Maybe a eventful day weather wise. No Farmers Market today.

Afternoon all.

93 and sunny here in California today.  Good day for going to the lake.

Yesterday turned out to be a little more interesting than moving furniture.  Around three-thirty there was a forest fire in the southern part of the county.  I gat called up by SAR to go down and work evacuation and traffic copping.  So I got my gear together and get to the sheriff's office to meet with the rest of the team, and we got cancelled.  So that was fun.

Then the really interesting part of the day called for drawing a gun on someone.  Yeah, that was fun.  Long story short, I stumbled across a couple people doing crack on a trail a ways from town and one of them thought it was in their best interest to pull a Glock on me.  I just happened to be faster on the draw.  I told him to toss the gun away and get on the ground, but they elected to run instead.  Which I suppose was just as well done there's no cell service it there to call law enforcement.  Once I got into cell range I called a friend that's a deputy and we did the paperwork, and then I went home.   So that happened.
In other news, one of our hens was struggling with egg bounding this week, but everything seemed to solve itself last night.  So that's nice.

Good Sunday to you all.  Workin' on a cuppajoe, feeling peckish.  I could almost parrot most of what you have said the last few days, lr, except for the rain part; instead, we have temps in the one-tens daytimes, last night, it was still over one hundred at midnight.

I knew a couple of different donkeys a while ago. One was a smallish critter, about the size of a Great Dane, was the watch donkey for a lodge in the High Sierras, a place called Convict Lake.  He would spend most of his days sitting on the porch steps like a dog, with his hind end on one tread, and his fore feet on a lower one, and occasionally taking a tour of the place; if anyone came around, he would set up a heck of a racket, and run to greet them, lookin' for a handout.  He had a taste for tobacco - it seems that more than just him is that way - and I found out about it when he stole a pack of Camel no-filters from my shirt pocket; he would be sorely disappointed these days, since I quit smoking in '83.  On our honeymoon, I stopped off there to see if they had a cabin for a day or two, and he came running, and stuck his head in my window, so I told my Bride: "Watch this", and slipped him a cig, told her she could give him one, too, but she'd have to tear the filter off of one of hers.  She thought that was funny. She didn't want to get out of the car, so I went into the lodge to see what was what, and when I came back out, that jack had his head in the passenger window of the car, his tail was going a hundred miles an hour, and Mrs. Rr was clear over on the drivers side tearing filters off of her Winstons and feeding the tobacky parts to him as fast as she could.  I hauled him out of my new Pontiac and chased him up onto the porch, but I almost hurt from laughing - She was not quite as amused. And, there was almost a whole pack of Winston filters without the smoke stuff attached in the floor of the car.

That's my war story for the week, I suppose.

Our fourteen year old granddaughter, Bella, came to visit her computer for a week - she doesn't have one at home with her mom, but the one she had at her dad's place got moved here when they went back on the road full time, so when she comes to visit, it is more like she is visiting the computer than us. She just left, and I don't think she said fifty words to me in the week she was here. I tried to put limits on her the last time she came, but that just resulted in a moody kid who hid in her bedroom instead of the computer room. Teenagers! Bah.  Well, now life can get back to it's normal hum-drum.

Gonna go see what I can rustle up to chew on.

Later.

Good one Harry  Grin

My Donkey story goes like this.....

Some years ago, a lady neighbor (a veterinarian BTW )  diagonally off my back pasture owns one of the critters along with her horses....
Got me in some HOT water when she first brought it home.....

Seems when I first saw it .. I said  " Doctor Mary has a nice Ass "  

"She" whom must be obeyed , was none to pleased with my observation  ... later that day all was well when the critter started braying.

Field Marshall is mostly loaded, need to tarp it.

Nothing loaded will be hurt if tarp leaks a bit.  Rest will load in the morning.  Got to hit the grocery store after work.  Should be on the road by noon.

Similar story back in the 90’s a old minining logging roads connecting near Hughs Creek Road in the River of No Return area. Salmon river area. Little gas stop town with abandon mine and a couple homes. The gas pumps were the glass type.  A pair of ferral burros grazed the roadsides. Apparently accepting handouts from passer bys.  Couple bags of chips later we were able to get past them. Gas and a 12er and back on our trip we went.

I have worked with domesticated ones since then
