Squash floating in the air

No, these squash are not floating in the air. To dry them and keep them away from rats I hung them on fishing line. Will it work, I dunno.

Harvest of Squash

Dad picked squash today. Say, anybody like squash? We dug potatoes and I picked tomatoes, again. The monument chinese cabbage is wonderful and we have lots of it. We also have lots of carrots and beets. Oh yea and, collard greens.

my neices daughter

This is a newspaper front page of my neice's daughter. It was on Sept 21st of The World newspaper.

Dad has been hearing a strange bird around the place. He said it goes, owww, owww. I told him it was probably an owl with a cold.

Nothing else yet to report on the farm here. owww, owww. Type more later.

Oh what a tangled web we weave.

I was going to add the "this date in history" feature to my blog but when I looked up today nothing happened. Nothing, nada, zip.

Tuna fishing

I went tuna fishing yesterday. We caught 17 tuna. I don't even like tuna. We caught some of them on hook and line. Its not fun.
We went out in the pacific ocean. If your looking north the pacific is the big pond on your left. We went way way out. Its over my head in some places. See the nice picture of the boat moving. Its not like that in the pacific ocean. Its very very bumpy. My teeth and some of my butterflies are still out there somewhere. Let me pry my hand off of this desk so I can send this.

Hot weather

Here is a video of when we got back from town today in the heat. Don't worry no little old men, or Llamas were hurt in the filming of this. Blacky usually jumps around but as you see its so hot he just stands there.


This is as hot as its ever been here since we've been here. The 101 is outside. Its so hot I seen a tree chasing a dog!

Lonesome Dove

We got rid of all our laying chickens so Mr. Wilson aka "Roosty" is mighty lonesome. He's been running around looking for someone to hang out with. Here he is hanging out with the Llamas, notice blacky keeping an eye on him when he walks behind him. Rule #1, never let a lonesome rooster walk behind you. We've got other hens growing up but there not old enough to hang with a rooster yet.

Weenie watchers

Sheba has been getting a little heavy lately so she joined weenie watchers. She used to eat dog food, eat a weenie and then go eat Llama manure. Now she eats dog food, eats half a weenie, and goes and rolls in horse manure. Her breath is fresher and she is more the weight of the other dogs in the neighborhood. She smells alot more after the roll in horse manure but Dad don't seem to mind.
Weenie watchers don't change the way you eat, but they teach you how to eat weenie's more responsibly.


The neighbor called last night and one of them big round bales of hay fell off a truck about a mile up the road. Dad and I went and got it and he wanted to ride home on top of the hay. We picked up hay a couple of weeks earlier and he wanted to ride atop it also but I didn't let him because we were along ways from home. But this time we were only a mile away so he did it. When we got home he said it wasn't as fun as when he was a kid. I told him he was sitting on a pitchfork and that might not be comfortable. But at 94, blind and deaf, he got to ride atop a load of hay coming down a mountain road.

A sad scary story about the 4th of July

We found our youngest Llama today dead. She was strangled to death by some snarly branches hanging down from a tree. The other Llamas were wanting to get out of that pasture so we thought something might be wrong. It was a total freak thing. The scary part is it was firecracker, the Llama that was born on the 4th of July. I'll post pictures when I can get back to my main computer.
I didn't go fishing the ocean was to rough.

Going to Vancouver Washington next Friday.

Lag in posts

Yes there have been a lag in posts. My Aunt Ruby is visiting and I gave her my room and she likes it alot warmer than I do. The garden is really growing and I'm going fishing tomorrow am at 3 am. I'm taking my camera and will for sure have pictures even if we don't catch anything. I'm staying in the trailer and its sorta like camping except I go in the house and cook for everyone. Tonight we had spaghetti and meatballs. Its been hot here, it got up to 88 today. I'll try and post a picture tomorrow..

Shebas new shoes

Sheba has been clam digging with me for 6 days now. I tried to get a movie of her trying to walk thru the mud but it didn't work. Notice her shoes of mud she has on. She never complained once which is more than most people can do.

Tuesday, June 23, 2009


This week are real low tides. I've been clamming for 3 days now and I have enough to can. I got 16 half pints. It'll make real good clam chowder this winter.

Here is some Oriental cabbage that I planted not to long ago. I don't know if your supposed to cook it or make a salad of it, so, I'm going to make a salad of it. It sure looks good, doesn't it.

Friday, June 12, 2009

This may appear to be a boring post but its not. Its a napping post. Sheba waking up from a nap I believe as I just woke up from a nap..

Almost done

Now here is a very none boring picture! Its the fish cleaning station almost done. All it needs is a cement slab for the cooker and something to clean like fish or crab. Say! Did you hear about the one armed guy that went fishing? Oops, I'll finish this joke at another time.

No More

I've noticed that not many people are replying to my posts.
From this day forward I vow to publish no more boring posts. No more posts of small tomatoes or ugly children, (just kidding).
I showed my blog to Sheba and this was her reply.
Also I'm going to give up procrastinating, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.

Got Muscles?

I got some muscles today. There yummy. They are bigger than most muscles so the yucky stuff inside that you don't taste on the little one's you can and do taste on these. I think its the poo track. Its funny no one here eats these muscles?

We've had alot of problems with Mr Wilson. We gave him to to neighbors and he came back. He made love to all of his hens and all of ours. He beat up his son, Mr Wilson Jr. and kept him from eating for many days. Today I caught him, after only about 27 miles of chasing him around the farm with a big ol' salmon net. We clipped his wings and sent him home. Mr Wilson Jr was so happy to have his home and hens back. He eye ball"ed the food but made love to 2 hens before settling down for a good meal. Things are back to normal for now. But tomorrow is another day!

Extreme Woodcutting

Here is Dad clearing out a trail over the falls so I can climb out and cut this log off so we can cut it up for firewood. Oh yea, he's blind and can't hear, but for the few of us who do extreme woodcutting that doesn't stop us. Sure there are easier logs to cut, but we would'nt be extreme woodcutters if we cut the easy ones. Near the end of the clip notice a small log over the river, another challange another day.

Shebas bed is done

Yep, Shebas bed is done. We went with Tiger felt. She has forgot about sleeping with Dad. She loves her bed.

We're done planting tree's. We planted 57 fir trees, 38 alder trees, 9 cascara, 4 maple, 2 cedar, 1 ash. They were not bareroot, they were all potted and needed a real hole dug to plant.

My niece got married. I didn't go. I don't go to weddings, just funerals. At funerals no one can talk back to you, or at least the host or hostess can't.

The Forest and the Trees

We got a bunch of free trees today. About 50. We've got trees everywhere but need some weather to plant them.
They had many kinds of trees, from evergreens to cascara. I was so happy to get cascara and they were so happy to get rid of them. We also got alder and they were surprised anyone would want that. Also got some fir, broadleaf maple, cedar and I snuck in some bushes I forget there name.

What came first the chicken or the egg?

The egg came first, then the baby chicken came!

We got 12 new baby chickens. They are brown leghorns, they will lay a white egg. We just moved them in the house because of cold weather on the way and we can keep a close eye on them.

I want another pig! Everytime I see a pork chop I think of Pinky.....

I made Sheba this bed today. She would'nt sleep in the kennel last night. She slept on a chair and about froze to death so I decided to make her her own bed. I may cut off the two posts at the rear, and it needs a pillow. I got that cool photo of the dogs playing poker and another photo of the mona lisa holding a jack rat terrier. I may put some skirting around the bottem. But for now I wait and see if she likes it.

It's been a zoo around here

Yep, Sheba is in the doghouse today. She was up all night waking dad up to let her out. When she would'nt come in he went back to bed. In my dreams I heard this noise that sounded like a small dog jumping on a screen door. When I awoke there was Sheba at the door, wet and cold and not very friendly. She didn't even say "hi" on her way to dads bed.
Dad didn't get much sleep last night and don't want Sheba back. In
the photo it looks like they kissed and made up but I know better. I made a bed for her in my bedroom but she likes a people bed and a electric blanket.

We gave our prize rooster "Mr. Wilson" to the neighbor but he came back today looking for love. He's in the henhouse tonight and I don't hear any cackling (if you know what I mean). It's been a zoo around here today.

another year

For those of you that follow my blog, last year the goats got there head stuck in the fence multiple times. Happy new year and another year of heads stuck in the fence. We stacked up this firewood and mommy goat had to get at it to eat the moss off of it. I should label these posts, "dumb and dumber".

To try and keep the voles down I built this nice owl house. Its for barn owls but I'll welcome any owls. Who you say? Just a clever owl joke, who. I'll build more if owls move in, they say to have 1 per acre. I may even have an owl cam. Who you say? You almost laughed this time, almost. Admit it. I think it would be wise to stop typing now.

social networking

I tried a social networking site but didn't have any replys, maybe they didn't like the way I talk. I wrote.

I like poetry, long walks on the beach and poking dead things with a stick.

The cats meow

I've been listening to the cats meow alot lately and I think I've broke the code that seperates cat talk and people talk. I may not be exact but I think I'm close, real close. See if you agree.

Meow---------- Time to eat

Meoow--------- Time to sleep

Meow---------- I hate dogs

Meow meow meow---------- I want meow mix cat food, cats ask for it by name!

Well what do you think?

The Lamp

We got a new lamp, and a new shelf for the lamp. Remember the old days when these cool lamps were everywhere. Its a touch lamp and works better for Dad as he can turn it on and off without having to find the switch..

The Cat

I got up before light this morning and went to let the cat in. She wasn't there so I went back to bed. Then she was meowing so I went back out to let her in. As it turned out she was up on the roof. So I get a chair and climb up on it and stretch to get the cat. She moves away and runs back and forth meowing just out of my reach. When I get off the chair she moves back meowing for me to help her. This continues. Then I think this cat is crazy but I'm the one out in the middle of the night standing on a chair half naked saying "here kitty kitty". Nuf said.
