Such Excitement!

I'm pretty sure the nuthatch has figured out Simon can't get through the window, so he's just taunting him now.


We got a cheap window feeder just to try it out a while ago, and it's been a pretty big hit with the furry ones.

Run run run...

Annual Blubber Run to kick off Pointoberfest!

I was slower than what I wanted, but was right where I expected.

"You'll shoot yer dick off!"

I don't carry appendix myself (haven't found a gun/holster combo that feels right for it to me,) but it comes up just about every time somebody mentions it.  So, science!

Meeting People Through the Power of Kilts

Manda and I were out picking some fresh sweet corn at our local CSA farm, and a nice gentleman flagged me down to talk about my kilt.

Kilted to Kick Cancer - 2016

Once again, For the entire month of September I will be wearing a kilt (when I am not required to be in a uniform) to help raise awareness and funding for Testicular and Prostate Cancers.

I love this cause so much, I got married in a kilt!

1 in 7 men will be affected by Prostate Cancer in their lifetime. 1 in 250 men will be diagnosed with Testicular Cancer in theirs.  As with all cancers, early detection and treatment are key to survival.  The point of KtKC is to raise that awareness, inform men of these risks, and urge them to get checked.

I will be wearing a kilt, but what can you do to help?

Cats

It's been a while, so if anybody is wondering about the beast we adopted a little over a year ago, she's now huge.  To the point that she knows she can beat up on Simon with ease (or pin him down for forced grooming.)


She weighs as much as he does, but it's in a solid compact chunk of cat (mostly because of short himmy legs.)  There's really no fat under the fuzz either, despite sleeping about 20 hours a day it seems.  Lila tolerates her, and Sadie reciprocates, although we do occasionally catch them playing. Girls will be girls.

Or grudgingly eating next to each other.
Overall, Sadie is definitely an "on my terms only" cat.  When she wants a lap, she's there, regardless of what you're doing, and when she's done, she's gone without warning.  I guess she's just living up to her title of "Duchess."

Range 15 Behind the Scenes

I backed it, and I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Of Horses and Tractors

Bit of a hiatus... as some of you people on the facebooks probably know, we moved most of my Mother-in-law's farm from the Middle-of-nowhere, WI, down to about 16 miles from our place.  It's sucked up quite a bit of time, but now I've got some land to play with and horses to baby.


Ms. Regal Satin (Satin), the herd boss, has more or less attached herself to me. She recognizes my truck, and guilts me whenever I leave.  Christmas Eve was spent like this for about 45 minutes-


Until my hands went numb.  Then I left the paddock and she gave a big sigh and slumped away like a sad puppy.  There's three more Appaloosas out there, although we're trying to find a new home for the mostly untrained stallion, which is turning out to be a lot more difficult than it was for the one mare we already sent off a month and a half ago.  All had been in less than stellar conditions and need a bit of rehab.

Yesterday was a fun day in the process.  Brought home a 1948 Farmall Cub and stuck it in the barn (anything bigger wouldn't fit.)


I did make a couple passes pushing snow with the blade for shits and giggles.  It's going to be fun to tinker with and clean up to drag to some local tractor shows.  In the meantime, I want to track down a sickle mower and will spend a lot of time this summer mowing weeds out of the hayfields and far pasture... it seems the prior owners stopped bothering with field maintenance when they decided to move.

The gentleman we bought the Cub off of spent a ton of time working on it, converted to 12v, replaced the head, and babied her pretty well.  He was sad to see it go, but the wife insisted on clearing out some space and paying off some other projects.  We'll keep in touch and let them know when we're hitting up the shows.
