I think any man is wise to walk a careful path while his wife is pregnant. Every woman is different. Some are self conscious. Others could care less what others think. Then you get those that are willing to wear a T-shirt that says "Baby on board" with an arrow pointing to their belly. You are doing just fine.

We have a 12 acre field out behind our house. Daily, deer come through. Many "heater hunters" (hunters that stay in their trucks until they see a deer) spot the deer & 99% will come to the door & ask permission. Most of the time permission is granted. The 1% that don't ask are escorted off the property & asked to not return. The deer are smart. In the 18 years we have been here only one deer has been taken, & that was last year.... a bullet from my sister in laws gun.

It is an epidemic in Maine Freddy. I have removed 3 bullets from houses I was working on. One of them my parents house. It feeds the antigunners. I could make a movie about it when school lets out this week for Tday. My brother used to teach and he remembers kids saying they hoped it would rain over the weekend so they could go hunting with dad. Yup, heater hunting. Teaching the next generation to survive as long as they have gas and beer and a pickup.

Good Sunday (weekend's over) Evening!

had to chime in on 2 topics.

1. Pregnant women. I concur with Freddy that you REALLY need to be careful!!! There is certainly no standard for reaction during these times. All of them will react differently, good , bad, or indifferent! I am blessed to have the daughter I do! we have been thru alot due to an accident with her so I am truely grateful. Trying to have another but have had some issues there too! In any case God will give us the blessings in time.

2. Deer. Yes they are very smart it seems here where I live... I reguarly see 3 to 5 bucks per season without trying... I own farmland and am surrounded by other farms. Out of about a 1000 acre area of fields and woodlots there are maybe 5 people hunting this area. Thru the entire Deer Hunting season it seems they are lucky to take 1 per year in this area. They are good at hiding.

I guess to recap my weekend it was fairly busy. Christmas Lights and trees (yes we start early). Changed oil and filters on New Holland TC35DA and Toyota 4runner, hauled a freezer from my Parents home that they were getting rid of and put out round bales for the cows... All and All a good weekend though!

Have a great week everyone

Good and bad in this day. The bad- landlady pressed me to fix the church manse roof. She demands that I work 1/2 price so I cop a resentment. Haven't been over there all year anyway, except when they wanted me to fix a screen door, and the young pastor lady slammed the door in my face twice. So I went over there today and hacked a patch in the roof, saw the pastor lady and was totally quiet. Just did the job. And I won't take a penny just for spite.

The good, I approached the across the road neighbor yesterday, and told her I might be able to drop the big tree root mass back in its hole. This is a 24" stem on this tree. Just went over there and jammed a rock under the trunk, and cut right through from the top. I had to go to both sides, my 20" saw not big enough. I just watched the cut to see if it was gonna pinch. I cut right through it and it just separated and sat there. At least it didn't trap the saw. Walked away figuring nothing more I can do. Then I got a railroad bar and started prying on the cut but couldn't get a grip. I could tell the root mass was close to balanced. Finally put the bar under the stump and it fell right back into its hole! Droppa pop-em hahahhaha. Very happy that worked out.

Fred, I used dawn dish detergent, it's what they use to clean those oil spill critters & skunk spray is an oil base. Worked on mine a few weeks back just put it on a wet sponge & worked a pretty good lather in & let it sit awhile before the rinse, did it twice to mine & couldn't even smell it when he got wet again but his breath was bad for a long time, guess he tried to lick it off. :shock:

Skunks!!! Arghhhhhhhh! Glad it was a light hit, Fred.

This WORKS. We always keep the ingredients in the house. If you own a dog in the country, you should too!

The following is a recipe for a mixture that is amazing at removing skunk smell. The important thing is to use it BEFORE washing the dog with shampoo, tomato juice or even plain water, these tend to "set" the skunk smell on the dog and make it more difficult to remove.
You need:
• 1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
• 1/4 cup baking soda
• 2 tablespoons dishwashing liquid
Depending on the size of the dog, you may need to double or even quadruple this recipe. Mix everything together in a large bottle or small pail then apply to the dog, massaging it in well and making sure to get it right down to the skin. Let it sit for about 10 minutes then rinse thoroughly. You may still detect a slight skunk odor while the dog is wet but it should smell MUCH better once dry!
If there is any left-over solution, just pour it down the drain as the reaction between the peroxide and baking soda does not last very long.
Whatever you do, do not try to bottle it and save it for next time, the chemical reaction that occurs can cause the container to explode!

PS if you happen to have some mineral oil, a couple drops in each of dogs eyes help....or just try to keep the mixture out of their eyes. HA! Good luck with that.

I think the size of the dog has to do with a lot more than the mixture, ya always have to allow for spillage as it drags you around the yard. :oops: :lol:

Now you can say to your dogs, "You douche." :D

Landlady shoved a piece of paper in my face two days ago. The church house I renovated took a hit on the shed dormer from a tree limb. I copped a major resentment because she demands I work 1/2 price for her stupid church that I am not a member of. Blackmails me with the deal I have living here.
So I went over and this young pastor girl, the same one who slammed the door in my face last summer, comes out. I just acted all gruff and went up across the roof to see the situation. the dormer roof took a hit and it busted a small chunk of torch-down, roof sheathing, fascia, soffit and window frame off.
I hacked a repair in, at least it was a nice day. I looked out over the church parking lot where there's piles of dirt; that they wouldn't give me a wheelbarrow full of when I needed it.
Then the lady comes out trying to get me to fix something inside. I didn't even answer her, just acted all gruff.
Then she left and I cleaned the gutters. God forbid any member of that church lift a finger to maintain the place.
Looked inside, what a bunch of sloppy pigs, wrecked my renovation already.
Just for spite, I did all that work for free, rather enjoy the resentment than accept 1/2 price. :lol:

Don't even get me started on SMALL cults :oops2: I mean Church's. We've got our own version here in Freetown. It got thrown out of a larger Town over a couple hills north of us. Lucky us--NOT :( I'm posting a coal sizing chart that has been posted before, but I can't find it--I'm reading a bunch of posts of people not being happy with size--anyway---here's a sounding board. Compliments of my buddy up north

I would have charged what you charge for your work. If you are not a member then while would anyone even consider suggesting half price? Sheesh.
