I'm not dead! Really, I feel fine! I suppose you all thought I had died or something to that effect. I'm guessing that thought had crossed your mind since I have not been around. That's not the case at all. I just have been way busier than I really want to be. I am still quite busy, to be honest. That's why I gotta make this post a bit short. But I will try to fill you in with the short version. I have been on the truck lately because we had a driver out on vacation. Filling in on the truck is not my job, but the guy who was filling in cut his hand pretty badly and had to get stitches. So, I found myself driving a delivery truck last week and this week. I will be on the truck more this week, as well. Ugh!! Se la vie! I have sold off a bunch of my chickens. But I needed to do that because having so many was getting quite expensive. I have a few eggs in the incubator, but I'm not sure how many will hatch. I had to take out a few last night because they were bad. But China is sitting on 10 eggs now. The eggs in the incubator are due the 19th and China's eggs are due on the 22nd. I've got a Buff sitting, but not regularly yet. She sits for most of the day, but roosts at night. I'm not sure what to do about her.
I also got some racing pigeons. I got eight of them, but one got away. It came back the next day, so Mike thought they all would come back. He let them all out. I've only got four left now. There are three or so that have been flying around and have landed in the yard, but are not going back to their coop. I think they may be gone forever, and I'm not very happy about that. But the man I got them from said he'd get me some more if need be. I will see what happens by the weekend.
Our friend Robert is coming to visit!! He lives in Texas (about 1500 miles/2400 kilometers). He will be arriving here in North Carolina the first week in October. He was Mike's friend years before I met either of them, but we are good friends now. He's been there for us through some tough situations we've had to face. He came to visit a few years ago, but that's a bit too long. We are certainly looking forward to the visit.
That's what I got for now. Hope all is well in Blog Land. See y'all in a few!!
