No e-mail

A long with every thing that has been going on here, now I can not get into my e-mail account! Just set up an alternate e-mail account at G-mail., If your interested.
Also can't seem to be able to reply to comments either. So for Spider and Susan (if you read this), Thanks for the kind words about my Brother!

Brother lost!

Hey Every one,
This past Saturday my older Brother Dan passed away and I have been trying to figure a way to get out to California for his memorial. But it's just not possible! The cost of the round trip flight is just not in the budget. I have been off work for the past 3 days, and that is all the time I can get for this.
Dan was 70 (71 in October) and has had some health issues the past few years. In May he was placed in a nursing home and and was doing better, but early Saturday morning I got the call and was shocked by the news!
I will miss him!

Rain,Rain and internet problems

Hey Everyone,
While other parts of the country are getting no rain and dealing with fires, we have had a very wet summer! So much so that the garden is under water most of the time! The only things that are still trying to grow are 3 sweet potato plants and a few cantalopes. I have to come up with a way to get the raised beds up off the ground and out of the water.
In the past 10 days we have had 3 days of heavy rains, then 2 days of late afternoon thunder storms, followed by 5 days of showers! The only thing that does not mind the exsess is the grass and weeds. Yesterday was a day of cutting grass and it was still so wet that the mower mostly just knocked it down.

And I have been having major problems with the internet! I went to a new server in May and it never worked right. Well yesterday a Tech came out and replaced all the lines and installed a new router. And that seems to have taken care of the problems (I hope!).

An update on the Chickens....
They are now over a year old and some of them are mollting, so egg production has gone down. I will sometimes get as many as 5 one day and then get 1 the next. But the total number of Eggs sence Jan 1 is 1459! And they are still living in the getto, as the weather has not helped me get a new fence around the new Hen House. I have a few day vacation comeing up in Aug. and hope to get them moved then.

But I just wanted to get a short post in to let you all know that I'm still here!
