My Eye Injury!

OUCH! It's an understatement - vastly understated!

As you all know, I'm working on fencing and have that firearm deer season deadline looming. Saturday afternoon while working on the fence at a tree, I got something in my eye. The longer it was in there, the worse it HURT. It didn't get better after coming in and flushing it. I also tried some red out eye drops and that was a MISTAKE. They burnt so badly that I just wanted to scream. Being a big girl, I didn't but I think I heard a couple squeaks.

I don't want to see the ER bill! Not to mention, I hate spending hours at the hospital. It's such a waste of time and they move so so slowly.

Hours later I came home with eye drops (antibiotic), a bandaged eye, and no idea if it was a wood bit or metal. Not sure didn't tell me anything. They did say I had a bit of a puncture and a tear.

Today it's finally not so painful, easier to read, bandage off and still red. It's also still sensitive to bright light and outdoor lighting. I'm also minus the bandage today. It's a good thing too because the goats didn't appreciate it and wanted to reach it with hopes of pulling it off.

I wear glasses so it still amazes me I got something in my eye. I wear eye protection when we are splitting wood. They are worn for cutting wood too. I just never thought of needing them for fencing!

Joke of the Day - The Rancher's Widow

A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.

Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk. She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk.

He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching. For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well.

Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, "You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town and kick up your heels." The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday night.

One o'clock came, however, and he didn't return…Two o'clock and no hired hand. Finally he returned around two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.

She quietly called him over to her. "Unbutton my blouse and take it off," she said. Trembling, he did as she directed.

"Now take off my boots." He did as she asked, ever so slowly.

"Now take off my socks." He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots.

"Now take off my skirt." He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the firelight.

"Now take off my bra." Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor.

Then she looked at him and said, "If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you're fired."
Disclaimer: This is NOT intended to be offensive at all. It's simply a joke. It's also not even accurate as as gays don't cross-dress. So please don't "read" anything into it. Just enjoy it for the humor aspect. Thanks!

Cows vs Bear


There are 15 photos and you click on the arrow, no video. Enjoy! Animals are truly amazing!

I'm sorry I'm not getting many posts done right now. I've either been gone, moving a fence line, or just plain busy. I have to have my prewinter work done before deer/gun season starts in November.

I usually try to have a few posts ready for when I'm swamped but I'm out of those. I WILL be back to posting SOON!

Vintage Goat Carriages Photo

I received this photo thru a graphic/photo share group on yahoo and WOW, was I excited to see this! It was definitely a "sit up and take notice" event! (click on it for the larger copy to show)

Photo Caption: "The picture above was taken in 1904, and shows children in Goat Carriages in Central Park, in New York City."

I immediately knew I'd need to make sure Sue Weaver, published author, would also be estatic to receive a copy. I also know she'll immediately wonder where it came from! I'm with her!

Has anyone ever seen this before? It seems it might be more traceable with the date taken and being in Central Park, NYC. But then again maybe that was just a notation on the back and we can't find a source.

Was it a goat show or some other type show? Was it a "Sunday get-together" situation? The kids are all finely dressed and everything looks to have been cleaned, groomed and done up for this get-together.

In spite of all that, I LOVE this photo. Isn't it neat? It just makes me want to know all about it and more about working goats! Inquiring minds want to know!
