buck barn. by time I finished chores this day in the barn, the whole foyer was
filled with water, even though the rains stopped for hours. still wet today
side of buck foyer
actually went down by time I finished bucks to go to doe barn. On the right side,
where you see muddy water, it was clear water and up over the muddy mound you
see. that whole gully was up to the top. as it went down, it got muddy
ditch you dug in the drive to keep the rain out of the barn
and john's side - lower corner of the sheep pasture behind manure pile
looking down the back of the
sheep pasture fence
up the sheep pasture where you had filled in the grand canyons over and over again
water down back side of sheep pasture looking towards john and maddy's
corner where you dug it out many times. aquila is back to jumping out again. I
am going to section off that corner with wire fence so he can not get back there,
but make it so it can be peeled back to get into. he got out 4 times alone today.
takes a licken, but keeps on a ticken
I went in to start cleaning, there were droppings that could not be seen just
looking around. They had gotten on top of your cornises, into the bed, some draws,
and loved your freezer : )
I am washing your bed linens and towels as I type.
Can the knitted throw be washed by machine or by hand?
The jac-a-lope is fine. they did take fur from it, but I could not see any bald
spots when I cleaned up there. brought your stetson in the house. it has a couple
very tiny abrasions on it and I didn't know if they were from you or "them".
It's on your's/dad's bear now. your house is squeaky clean and a big mothball
I am so sorry I did not catch it all sooner. Just going in and looking
around you could not see their droppings in the carpet or in/on your bed. When
they discovered your freezer that's when we went into action. With everything
squeaky clean right now, we will know if any get in. Still can't figure out how.
there a crack on the lower left back side of the house, under the tail lights,
but above the outlets? I cleaned some outside and I couldn't remember if that
crack was when you hit one of your legs backing the PUp back in.
and miss ya. BB
