I told you we had a snake that loved lightbulbs. I know you didn't believe me, so I've been waiting for the proof when I didn't lose my head in the face of a snake. Last night, I went into the chicken coop a little before sundown, to retrieve the rest of the eggs for the day and what did I find?! That snake eating the 75-watt bulb. Instead of panicking --which I usually do when confronted with these long black things--I backed out and went to the house for the camera. By the time I returned, the snake had moved and I got a great shot. I had labeled the photo "What's for dinner?" But my friend, David, sent me back a title that was a whole lot more creative! Thanks, David!
The best ones are always at the top, aren't they!
But, I shouldn't complain....shortage is not a problem out here JOTOLR!
It was 48 degrees here last night! Fall is definitely in the air! Hurry tomatoes! We got ours in a bit later this year, so we're on the verge of harvest.
The sunrise this morning was typical of fall.
Thank you, Linda, Julia, Barbara and Elora for comments on my last post. I have missed everyone.
Linda, the fan simply keeps the fumes away. The dehydrator does the drying. It's a nine-tray job that heats gently, is thermostatically controlled and does a good job on modest-sized drying projects. MM, however, is considering (and I believe has decided to go ahead with it) building a large, solar-powered dryer. That will be awesome!
Julia, I have missed you, but knew you were enjoying winter! Would have gladly traded spaces with you during our past HOT-HOT-HOT summer! Can't wait to hear more about what you're up to in New Zealand! Elora, hope your vacation is absolutely wonderful! Barbara, I've take your comments under advisement! And, I'll try to put some posts up concerning fiber arts. But you give us far too much credit! You teach us the value of retaining those crafts and skills of yesteryear. And, Vicki, you really touched a nerve the other day with your post on the Whole Earth Catalog. We still have (and use) a grain grinder we bought from the WEC many years ago. That catalog was incredible and wonderful. Thanks much for reminding me. Don't know what happened to ours, though. Must have disintegrated from use! The grain grinder was made in Poland.
