I walked into middle of barn and flipped on the light.
Saw a empty hog feed bag on floor with a black and white back end and tail sticking out.
1st thought " why is LN's cat inside that bag"? 
Instantly SHUNK, SHUNK, SHUNK...Run
I did out the back of the barn, looked back and saw an angry dog biting a shunk.
I left and came back about a half hour later.
It smells but not as bad as a direct spray in the middle room we sort empty poly bags in.
The dog didn't get directly sprayed but he smells.
Guess whose sleeping outside for quite sometimes?
Hopefully he hurt it bad enough the shunk crawled away and died.

The camper goes to the fairgrounds on Saturday morning.
Guess when we chose to fix the awning that shirred 2 rivets off last year at fair?
Tonight as a lightening storm blew through with accompanying wind.
Oh well it's fixed ... He thinks...
After that was done I drained the winterized pipes and flushed the lines and checked electric and air conditioning out.
Then I ran through the downpour to the barn to let the hogs inside. I had let them out to run for a half hour or so.
Can't show you how funny they were. They were standing with their mouths open catching the rain pouring off the roof.
It took me quite a while to get them to come back inside. They had rolled in the mud earlier so a rain bath helped restore 
 their beauty.

LN is in Idaho with her exchange group so it's crazy here trying to keep all he balls in the air alone .

All well I can sleep when I'm dead.


  1. Whew! You came out lucky with that skunk situation. I don't know how you do all you do each and every day to keep things going around your place. I don't handle half as much as you do in a day's time and I know I'm pooped at night. (So much so that I don't sleep as well as I wish. Can't turn the old whirling mind off!)

    1. Mama you exhaust me just reading about your extensive gardening and cooking projects. We're even I think ;}
