This summer the crows have been extra noisy and Lily has decided they are evil and must be barked at loudly. The worst part is that the crows have been waking us up about 6 am. <groan> And since I am a night owl, I am rarely asleep before 2 am. After the crows wake us up and Lily REALLY wakes us up, Sena wants breakfast. Our whole day is shot and I'm exhausted from lack of sleep.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to silence our mornings?
Cap gun when they first start in... would take a few days to train them...
Earplugs for you, but that won't work on a dog, and you know she is only doing her job. I suppose you could record them and play it over and over and over for a few days to desensitize her....

Thanks Di,
I only venture out AM and evening when it's cooler. Tonight, I brought in a bunch of paste type tomatoes, so I foresee fermented salsa making happening Tuesday! Cilantro all gone to seed, so I'll have to buy some Monday so I'm ready.

Should fit Mel and Kate's car easily. Sorry but at 65 plus it was just a tad much trying for the trade name of the unit.

Yes sir!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

The new kitchen remodel job at our S&B is almost finished! Looking good, too. We're really proud of this one, let me tell you!

Tom & Jan
Tom, I see where you are feeding the ice maker through what looks like a two inch PVC pipe.

Nice touch!

You made that choice.... Lol, like a real grownup.... Hope Annie is making it ok as well..... Heat in your area too.....

Carl..... Nice screen tent, had a yucky old one years ago, but it did its job.... Good deal on that... Worth it.
