“Rattlesnake vaccine?” Admin says. “Didn’t know about that. Anyone out there ever used it?”

    Good morning Sharon HOH, I couldn’t sleep anymore. I kept thinking about the things I was not supposed to forget for my trip. Hope I remember what they were.

    Staff, Have a good trip! How is BATGIRL doing?
    HOH, Have a great day!

    Yesterday was Paul Mc Cartney’s 71st birthday. He can still rock!

    I was very sneaky and left of few postings early this morning on yesterday’s blog.

    Congratulations to Shakira and Pals and to Lucy Lou (Huntress Extraordinaire)

    When we two legged were just pups, the whole family would go visit my Grandmother (the one I’m named for) in the mountains of North Carolina. For some reason, the Raven thought it would be great for us to learn how to catch and kill rattlesnakes.

    We did get one. Grandmother was pleased. We had to go to the edges of her domain to do it. The two COTTONMOUTHS were easy to get and kill as they were on the porch under a basket. Scared the Dog right out of us!

    Did not know there was a vaccine for dogs. We have not rattlers here, nor cottonmouths. Our big snakes are garter snakes.

    We do not have rattlers here either. We do (supposedly) have coppermouths, although those were more on the hill near our old house.
    One year, the ‘rents went to the Outer Banks on vacation. As Mom was unpacking her suitcase in the rental house, she noticed that she had forgotten to pack shorts!!!! They had to make an ermergency shopping expedition to Nags Head. Mom hates shopping.

    Mom’s experiences with rattlesnakes:

    Many times while walking in the desert just at dawn, the rattlesnakes come out onto the dirt tracks to sun themselves. Mom just walked the dog around them….no problems. The snakes didn’t seem to mind. Not one ever rattled a warning.

    A long time ago Mom’s female GSD killed a rattlesnake in the yard that was up by the house. The dog was not bit.

    We know a man who lost half his leg to a rattlesnake bite.

    They have a rattlesnake hunt in this state every year, which is STUPID. The idiot that kills the most rattlesnkes wins.

  29. Siber-H
    11:42 am on June 19th, 2013

    In answer to Spence’s question, yes, we know people here that get the rattlesnake vaccine for their dogs. These are the kind of well-meaning people that go hiking and let their dogs run loose. Mom is not going to get me any unnecessary vaccines because I am not going to be off leash. (That’ll be the day)

    Good Morning All

    Whew, I have just come home from liberating wildflowers. Our neighbor who has moved his horses has not mowed the fields.

    Little did I know that it is full grass pollen time. I was there about five minutes when the sneezing fits started. I managed to get over ten plants. They are now in a bucket of water until I have rested.

    As BSD would say, “Time for a nap”.

    Rattlers: 50 years in So.Cal. and rattlers where generally pointed out by someone doing something DUMB. One doing the a.m. sun thing once. 11 years here in TN and NO rattlers to date (they must all be married, he, he). Have seen: black, garter, fishing and cottonmouth.

    As a child in Arizona I went out one night in the desert with a few adult neighbors who shone their flashlights on the path ahead of us, found a couple of rattlesnakes and blew them away with shotguns. I remember questioning why we did this, but I kept it to myself.

    No one liked Brad Pitt yodeling?

    From Newf Directional Central . . We have directed YSAS somewhere and Zoë somewhere. I can only hope that Franklin did not mix those directions up before Gracie hit send.

    Gardening update. I have little tiny plants growing out of the ground! Wild flowers are planted. I am in the midst of planting the Black Eyed Susan. We have had them since the middle of May.

    Our cousin Kat Skylar is diabetic and has to eat a high protein food. The vet said just think of it as 98% rat. I suppose that was supposed to soound tasty to Sky, but mom and gma turned a little green. BTW, it contains 0% rat. Yesterday g-ma foound out that she may be diabetic. She says that she will NOT eat rat.

    Siber, our state also has one of those “fun” hunts each year. It is in the northern (mountains) part of our state, not near us. None of us has participated.
    Melanie, we thought both Jimmy K. and Brad P. yodeling was great.
    Rio, thanks for posting. Thankfully, we do not use any of those foods or treats, but Mom did throw away a really really delicious treat she bought us last week, after she had read of recalls of simlar treats by the same company. And those were from China. Now Mom says she will put on her reading glasses before buying us any more treats. If they say they are made in China, she will not be purchasing.

  43. Herd of Hounds
    2:54 pm on June 19th, 2013

    Are these food and treats made by the same Chinese laborers who made the size 52 lame` mini-skirt and held it up on this blog laughing (and probably yelling “Flag!” like mom and her sis did with their g ma’s drawers). Is this Mao say revenge?

  44. Siber-H

    Sometimes some of us have brilliant but weird thoughts that it takes everyone else a while to catch up with: like Melanie’s Brad Pitt yodeling: like Mao say revenge. Let’s try some southern “politeisms”. Such as: Bless her heart (she can’t help it), poot (FART). Wow, who do you know that could benefit from these? Ohhhh, the HOH’s own Emma P, which must be short for POOT. Gah, gasmask, help! What did mom feed her?

    There was also a recall on dog food and treats by Natura. There is a chance of salmonella.

    We are back from watching swimming and golf lessons. Lily is a darn good golfer aready.

    Oleys, we are back, but don’t know what we can contribute regarding the bedding. Never used sand, just went from cloth and paper towels to shavings. Probably switched to the shavings somewhere around 2 weeks. Sand seemed like it might be easier to clean (sort of like kitty litter). Are you having problems with it?

    Barb, the sand is working great in the brooder box. But we are still not sure if we want to go that way for the coop when the go out there. Do you think it would be cold in winter? We read that comment from some folks online. Of course, none of them who said that had actually tried sand.
    We have lots and lots of wood shavings around here, because we use it in the horse stalls, so that would be cheaper. But how on earth do you “pick” chicken poop in that?

  54. Macy
    4:31 pm on June 19th, 2013

    How do you know that chicken poop is ripe to pick it?

    Thanks, B. Stover. I have more pictures to put up, but I need to do it from the large computer. Otherwise, they are sideways.

    We are watching Major Crimes. Bought season 2 on Amazon instant.

    I once looked up composting dog poo. They didn’t have anything for more than one dog.

  61. Melanie
    5:24 pm on June 19th, 2013

    Also, it had to be a more temperate zone than we are located.

    HOH, when I lived in the south, “precious” was used a great deal.

    As in: That is so precious.

  62. Herd of Hounds
    5:24 pm on June 19th, 2013

    New Tricks!…Grows on you. At first we did not like it but kept watching…snort!…It gets better.

  65. Barb & Maggie
    6:08 pm on June 19th, 2013

    We love Major Crimes. The new season just started. TNT has some good ones. Rozolli and Isles new season starts next Tuesday. It is a hoot.

    Dog food and cat food should NOT be composted for an edible garden. Only poop from farm animal type critters.

    Oleys, not sure anyone else on the blog is interested in sand vs shavings, but here goes in as few a words as possible:

    Would not use sand in the permanet coop. Go with shavings or straw. You don’t try to pick it as you pick a horse stall. Just add more shavings or straw on top (just enough to give you a clean surface). Continue to do that till spring, then have someone come in and clean the whole thing out, taking it all to a compost heap. The layering will give them extra warmth during the winter months and acts as insulation on the floor. We did ours twice a year, but we had about 28 chickens. Barb had two teenagers that came over and hauled everything out with wheelbarrows and a little skid loader. Our coop was 8 x 24 (192 square feet) and they could do it in about 2 hours (they charged $50). With 7 hens, it will not get smelly and yucky.
    Oh, and occasionally when they are shut in, give them a leaf of hay – they LOVE alfalfa hay – and after they finish scratching it around and having a ball, it will contribute to the bedding.

  66. Barb & Maggie
    6:14 pm on June 19th, 2013

    One more thing – Gah, will she ever quit! We liked to use straw sometimes as it will create a more neutral compost than the shaving which are pine and will be more acidic. Ok, we are done!

  67. O'Howlers
    6:37 pm on June 19th, 2013

    Thanks Barb. Good info.
    Melanie, those flowers are beautiful.

    At the risk of getting in trouble, we have to ask about the Boutique. If we do not hear back on any of our purchases, does that mean we got everthing we wanted (no news is good news), or does it mean we got nada?

  68. O'Howlers
    6:43 pm on June 19th, 2013

    Oh! One more chicken question for Barb (sorry everyone else). Did you use a board under the roosts so you could easily clean up the overnight stuff?

    Oleys, We did not, although it seems like a good idea. Your girls will pick the same spot each night, as they are creatures of habit. We just added more straw/shaving under the roosts. If your folks really want to be super clean, the board seems like an easy way to clean up after the ladies.

  79. Melanie
    7:15 pm on June 19th, 2013

    Exploding hair . . I can understand that.

    HOH, the compost thing for dog poo is a large container with holes in it that sits down in the ground. The dog poo goes in there and then slowly decomposes out into the lawn.

    Hmmm. That’s why it wouldn’t work here. Four months of the year it would be covered with three feet of snow. And I’d have to have 5 of the containers to deal with the amount of poo.

    Jeez Louise

    Close! And, here we are with all our money tied up in chocolate. We recieced a not-so-sizeable loan from Luna—it is borrowed against future winnings—and got the Giant one of his favorite candy bars for Father’s Day. It was a king size chocolate bar. We spared no expense, not for our guy.

    OK – so first off, thanks from Gramp for the birthday shout outs. We think he had a good time.
    Mama got him his favorite cake – an Italian Fruit cake – nothing like the hard as a rock Christmas type, and roasted a leg of lamb (or was it a Marauding Goat). We put “Wahoo – 82!” on the cake – he thought that was a riot. A good time was had by all – even though Aunt Disease-of-the-Week, and Uncle Ichabod Goofball came for dinner. Yes, they are here from Florida, and we could only duck them for just so long.
    The funny part was when Aunt started complaining about the pain in her leg and her sore shoulder and her aching eyebrows, the Storyteller said that he had kind of a tough winter too – then he lifted his shirt and showed off his “mauled by a bear” scars from the back surgery.
    She didn’t have too much to say after that.
    Go figure.

    Gramps!…So glad he had a good time….snuffle!

    Stover!….We are watching episode #3 of the killing…snort!…Poor Bullet! But what a great actress. I wonder how old this little girl is. Probably not as old as Gramps, but older than the 15 year old she is portraying…wuffle!

    Dawson got distracted by me and forgot about the game. Luckily Mollypop’s Mom mentioned it and she is now sitting in front of the TV. She had a slight problem finding the game because she kept looking for it on cable and it is on the regular NBC. We called Mr.Staff and he told us where to look (and said she was missing a great game).

    She is cackling away in there now.

    She was really PO’d there for a while.
