I haven’t been here for a while, but thanks to Susan, this fun day filled with beautiful pictures is still here. Visit her at Southern Daydreamer.blogspot.com for the list.
WHAT? how can you participate in Outdoor Wednesday with no pictures?
Well believe me, when you read my post, you will be thrilled that I didn’t show any pictures.
Outdoors at the Bar H right now consists of leaves that poor Roy keeps fighting because I complain that they get tracked in the house. BUT..BUTT, we have lots of those around here and they produce lots of POOP is also a big problem that my wonderful husband can’t fix.
With close to 60 goats and 2 large dogs in the pasture, it is hard to walk in some areas out there and not step in something.
Now we move to the yard, which is 3 acres, so you say, well that is plenty of room for 4 more dogs and 5 cats……not exactly. But the dogs do have a place way off behind the hedges and the cats do cover it up and confine their poop to the flower beds.
BUT, now we come to Mr. and Mrs. Turkey. They, my fellow bloggers, I hate to tell you don’t not have a special place nor do they cover it up.
In the summer, they roam around the 3 acres and stay away from the house for the most part, but since this cold,rainy winter has set in, they have decided that my covered patio or the cover on front of our house barn, (not used for animals) is the place to roost during the day and they can stay dry and out of the wind. Now we have a real problem. Out at the barn is not so bad, they stay on one side and it is not the side we use to go in and out of the barn, BUT my patio is a different story. We have tried everything to keep them off and Roy’s last suggestion was to put bull wire around the patio. Not really an option, since that is one way and the major way we get outside.
It is not a pretty sight, but if you wait until it hardens, you can just sweep it off into the yard and it turns to powder most of the time. (at least it does not stink).
SEE, I told you, you didn’t want pictures. , I know by now most of you are saying …Why in the heck did she write about something like that …..POOP. Well, all of you are talented, creative, good cooks, artist, writers, not me. I love animals and I am willing to endure things most people would not. I also thought I would add a little humor to your life (?) or at least make you happy you are not me!
LAUGHING is not happening much around here lately, with Sharon losing her husband and now having cancer and 2 of my other friends finding out their husband’s have cancer, we just haven’t had much to laugh about.
So, I decided to try and make you smile a little, I have been laughing while writing this trying to imagine what you are thinking as you read it.
Happy Outdoor Wednesday!
