We got Terry’s cats, BeeBee and Mai Lyn, spayed a week ago today, and as I wrote in a blog afterward, Mai Lyn was fine after a couple of hours rest. BeeBee seemed to be having some kind of reaction to the medication and hissed and growled at the other critters for a couple of […]

Terry had an appointment at Pickens County Primary Care yesterday for an ultrasound on her thyroid, part of trying to figure out what was making her so sick a few weeks ago. The nice tech that was doing the procedure told her she had one of the prettiest little thyroids around. What else would you […]

I Fixed Nothing!

After a week spent building a shooting range and fixing things around here, I decided I’d better stop that nonsense. Some of my friends are asking who this imposter is and what happened to the real Nick. So the only thing I did along those lines yesterday was go down and check the tire on […]

Some Blood Was Shed

I had such good luck taking off and remounting the tire on my Kubota tractor on Friday that I decided to tackle a similar but much smaller job yesterday. One of the rear tires on the Husqvarna riding lawn mower had a slow leak and would go down between uses. If I can handle a […]

As I have said before, the big barn at the back of our property is a bit dilapidated but it does have a nice flat concrete floor and is watertight so I keep the tractor implements in there. When the weather looks particularly bad I move the Kubota, the Husqvarna riding lawn mower, and the […]

What Could Go Wrong?

We had a couple of other contractors come out yesterday to give us bids on the deck project, and I think we have decided on who we’re going to have do the work for us. One other person is supposed to get back to us on Monday, so we’ll wait until we see what he […]

Yesterday Terry had an appointment at GI Associates of West Alabama in Tuscaloosa yesterday to schedule a colonoscopy. There’s no reason for us to suspect anything, it’s just a routine follow-up because of continuing problems caused by the radiation enteritis, which is the result of the 60 days of radiation she had during her cancer […]

There was a lot of thunder and rain Tuesday night, and we were awakened yesterday morning by weather alerts on our telephones informing us that a strong storm system was coming through our area and that we were under a tornado watch. That wasn’t a surprise because the night before, the weatherman had predicted afternoon […]

Terry has put a lot of work into her garden, both the plants on the ground and in her raised Vego planting beds, and she is starting to see some of the fruits of her labor. While we were working out in the garden yesterday, we spotted quite a few little green tomatoes. What? You […]

We were up early yesterday morning because we had a lot to get done. Our son Travis helped me put up another deer fence, this time around the garden and Terry’s raised planter beds. We appreciate Travis and his wife Geli very much because whatever we need, they are always here for us. The fence […]

Yesterday was a beautiful day, with lots of sunshine, a high of about 68o degrees, and a nice breeze blowing. A perfect day to be outside working, and that’s what we did. I think I mentioned that Terry had ordered a couple of Vego Garden raised beds for growing herbs and vegetables, but only one […]

A while back, somebody asked me how come I’ve got a nice Mustang and a fancy pickup truck to drive around in, and also a Kubota tractor, and a Kawasaki Mule, while poor Miss Terry didn’t get anything. How fair is that? When it comes down to it, Terry would much rather have a pickup […]
