Holiday Raffle and update

Whew, finally got the tractor going decent!  Boy howdy, that darn thing had me squirming a little bit.  I really do depend on that particular piece of equipment and I'm pretty lost without it.  Just cant put a big round bale of hay out to the cows without it!  Still needs tires but the old, used one the neighbor found for me will make it for a little while and give me some breathing room.

Had 2 pretty good scares this past week.  The blower speed switch caught on fire in the truck while on the drive to work.  LOL, I like to killed myself trying to get pulled over and stopped so I could put the fire out!  Darn thing shorted out and now the cab stinks like burnt plastic.  Last night, 50' from the driveway, a big buck stepped out in front of me.  Talk about a butt clinch!  I'm so glad I spent the time to replace the front hub/rotors on that little truck, saved my bacon and I got it shut down with a couple feet to spare.  That stupid deer just stood there and looked at me.  I had to roll the window down and yell at it to make it run off!  Dumb deer, LOL

Had a visit by an old coalmine co-worker tonite who told me to stop by his house and pick up one of those rubbermaid water troughs he isn't needing anymore.  He says it's the goat/sheep sized one.  Woohoo, I could use opne of those!

Hey Pamit, yep, those lionheads are mellow, furry little fellers and make great pets!  Still no kits yet but I have hope.

All 3 of the hatched chicks are still alive and making a healthy racket in the front room.

The goats all look preggers.

Okay, here's what I've got to raffle.....

both are 5'x7'.  Same as always on the entries, $10 for one entry or $20 for 3 entries.  Be sure to choose one or the other when entering.  This raffle will be open until the 10th of December so I can get it mailed to arrive before Christmas.  Good luck!

  1. So, you have seen the "deer caught in headlights"? That fire sounds exciting, too exciting for me. So, what won't work after the fire? You certainly crochet fast. Nice job.

    1. Hey Linda! Yah, LOL, he was caught no doubt! Eh, I have no blower now, the speed control switch burned up. I can replace it but it's going to be a paycheck or 2. Oh, LOL, thanks for the compliment but I sure didn't get those done fast. The rainbow took 7 weeks to finish and the camo one is 3 or 4 days from being done. Minimum 70 hours in every one that size.

  4. It's a very good thing that buck didn't hit you. They do a lot of damage. Glad to hear things are going okay your way. The water troughs sound like a real gift. Love it when that happens. Happy Thanksgiving!
