For those who aren’t familiar with it, a “bump post” is used on an online forum to refresh an older post by adding a reply. This way instead of the older post being about ten pages back on the “recent” list, it goes right on back to the first page.
So, as I’ve been doing other things and not really updating the blog much lately, here’s my “bump post”. Just a few quick updates:
The Mongolian is here to stay; they were married within weeks of his arrival and the little one is due any day now. Necessity or efficiency, my brother will be a grandpappy either way.
Down to one chicken. Pestilence left its dark blemish on our coop with one sole survivor who now rules a lonely roost. Construction is underway for an expansion and influx of new chicken immigrants.
Living off the land: Planted some crops out back which immediately became a buffet table for chipmunks, woodchucks and deer. Farmer Fartwaffle hast slain over a dozen chipmunks (I don’t want tot hear it, they’re colorful but they’re still rats), one woodchuck and is running out of ways to discourage the cloven hoofed varmints from getting into the squash. We are getting closer to “Centerfire Day”.
I need to post this and get back to work, the cable guy is coming tomorrow to do an install. DirecTV was great while it lasted and if not for their absolutely abhorrent customer service I would have continued paying $40 more a month than I am going to be paying with cable. I hope that $20 “free” service call was worth it, DirecTV.
Till next time…
