Good morning!

Adding Debbie and Kaye to the prayers. BTW, it's important to let the person know folks are praying for them. Knowing people care about your plight goes a long way in the healing/coping process. It reduces stress to know others, even complete strangers, are thinking of them. Stress has been proven to be the enemy of healing and good health. Ive seen the effect it can have even on non believers. OK, off the soap box.

Not much new to report here. Cool and overcast as the sun begins to light the day. Coffee is awesome as usual. Going through the bizllion emails we are getting about the veteran farmer project. If this keeps up we will need a full time volunteer just to answer them all.

Anyway, time for another cuppa. Have a great day.

And I bombed the crap out of that house the next day, I set off at least 10 of the bombs, could not go back in for a few days, it was so bad!! But when I did, everything that was living in there was dead!! Surprising what we live with and do not know it!!
Coffee is good this morning!! Foggy and rainy this morning, a good day to go to the Abe Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Il.
Everyone have a great day! Rail!
Well she is doing much better, the area is light pink and her cramps and all are gone. there was no loss of tissue and the area looks normal. Still going to "Carpet Bomb" the mh as i'm sure there are some fireants and other nasties in there, plus going to Sally's sisters for 2 weeks where they don't believe in treating their cats for fleas became a nightmare for our 3 little dogs! Bobby

Glad shes doing better Bobby. I feel terrible for those animals that living with fleas and not being treated. Imagine living your life inside a bubble full of mosquitos. I know you need to bomb for the other creepy crawlies or DW will never get into your coach again, but remember what I told you about borax. Bug bombs wont kill the eggs.

For those that may have missed it. The life cycle of a flea is short. Hatch/eat/breed/die.

Fleas, like other holometabolous insects, have a four-part life cycle consisting of eggs, larvae, pupae, and adults. Eggs are shed by the female in the environment The number 1. Eggs hatch into larvae The number 2 in about 3-4 days and feed on organic debris in the environment. The number of larval instars varies among the species. Larvae eventually form pupae The number 3, which are in cocoons that are often covered with debris from the environment (sand, pebbles, etc). The larval and pupal stages take about 3-4 weeks to complete. Afterwards, adults hatch from pupae The number 4 and seek out a warm-blooded host for blood meals.

Without using any poisons you can rid yourself and your pets of fleas in just a few weeks using borax on your pet and on the carpets. It dries out the eggs, larva and adult fleas. Leave in your carpet for 4 weeks+ and you will be clear. On your pets you will want to take measures to keep them from licking themselves. While borax is not toxic it will make them puke if they take in too much. Leave the dry borax in their fur for 2-6 hours and give them a bath. Do this every 3 days for 4 weeks. One of these will keep your pets from licking themselves.

Take the cats a gift and give them each a flea collar. If you are worried about the family being offended, sneak some of that flea stuff into their fur on the back of their neck.


Won't help the carpet, but might help the poor animals Then just accidentally drop a box of borax in their carpet. "Oh darn, I am so clumsy."


I don't know why people want animals when they won't take care of them. Maybe take them a gift bag (WITH INTRUCTIONS) with flea collars and the borax and leave it on the counter as you leave.


Oh, was that bad of me? Lynne

i found an old dear abby news paper clipping in my grandmothers dresser after she passed away,,,that said to take walnut leaves and put them under couches chairs beds etc,etc,---we had a rental unit that was infested with them and we bombed and bombed that place with no luck....after we found the clipping we tried it it wasnt 3 days and
all the fleas were gone,,,worked great,,,
i know that this is a hard time of year to find leaves but just keep it in mind if you ever have problems in the summer a few walnut cuttings can go along way,,,,mother nature has a cure for all problems...even though she may cause a few...lol

I'll add to the Home Remedy stories.

I spread Breakfast Grits around fire ant mounds.
They take the Grit flakes into the mound and feed it to the Queen and the rest of the nest. Then they get thristy and they drink water.
Their little stomachs can't handle the Grits swelling and they all die in a few days. Rice works too but you gotta have Big Ants to carry it into the Nest!

(The Walnut leaves work well. That's what we use out here and haven't had a problem with fleas in years. Now if we could just get rid of the June Bugs!)

Ah Spring time, when the Finches take over every nook and cranny with their mud nest for their little ones. Driving the Cats NUTS!
The KillDees are my favorite. I have special flags I use to mark their gound nest so I don't mow over them on the riding mower. Cool Birds!


Keeping the Ladies and Harley in our daily talks with the Big Guy.

Curtis and Melissa

Late arrival today but still Good Morning here.

Beautiful day today. Spent most of my coffee time out on the back deck. Ahhhh fresh spring air.

Glad all of you are mostly on the mend. When we asked for a life well challenged I'm sure these things are not what we had in mind.

Have a great day

Frank,


Sometimes I am not very suttel and people laugh at me but it works for me.


Curtis, Are those dry or fresh walnut leaves and do you all keep the good used MHs down there in Texas. Every time I find one it seems to be at PPL in Texas.


Kaye is improving. They moved he to rehab for physical therapy. You should see the brace system she has to wear because of her broken back and neck. She said thank you all for the prayers. She is just glad the driver hit her and not a school bus full of kids. She is such a sweetheart.


Well, I got to get busy looking to see if any new MHs are for sale any where around close to me unless Curtis kept them all in Texas again.


You all have a wonderful evening. Good healing to all and may you get a wonderful hug today! Lynne

Supposedly they are doing something with them but I doubt it. I feel bad for their animals, but worse for mine, they are very thankful to be away from there and so am I! Not likely to go back either as although I enjoy fixing things I don't like to be taken advantage of! Bobby

Just read an article on Social Security Disability, now I have heard it all! The SSA has given 257 people from Puerto Rico disability status , their disability "Not being able to read, write or speak English" ! Which lessens their ability to work! I guess that means I should be able to get it too as I can't read,write or speak spanish. This is getting ridiculous, I quit! Bobby
