 :) :) :) :) :)  I like that WD.That's an IP ... Important Post . :)  Years ago, I saw a hawk going  up and away with a squirming snake. I agree in that they are important. They will also follow the clipper around and pick up mice.

God bless you GopherBroke.   

Mr Horse, I remember my Mama making kraut  like that when I was a really little thing. Then we moved and didn't have our crocks anymore (or a garden for a long time)  This is the kind of  true old timey recipe that is hard to find. Thank you for posting it . :)  judy

I have see several of the big black ones with red marks. These are about the length of my index finger not counting the legs. big things they are .. I've seen more of them in Ark that the little green ones. Not that many small one and lightening bugs are slim.

Happy Hour / snake makes unusual move

Have any of you ever seen a chicken snake move backwards ? I went to the faucet at the barn to turn on the water and there was a 2 1/2 ft snake coming out from under the slab of the barn. He promptly saw me when he was over 99% out.( I could see his tail's end) and he went backwards lickety split  right then and  there, no curling up at all, just put it in reverse and was "poof"  gone. Never seen that.. never.  so fast too...

I like that Mr Horse. :)  Rabbitproof yes ! and add "you're letting the mosquitoes in". My bil says this  in the winter- "close that pneumonia hole."

Rabbitproof, The golf course is a scary place in a storm- for sure !    Tell him to take no chances out there.
   That's  great news about the rain  and am glad for you !   :) :)  judy

It was in the last 3 years that lightening struck so close to the house that it burned up the fans on the 3 a/c units, the modem , the security system , my  tv's satellite and  2 receivers ...scary thing is that I was just out in the garden  and had felt the wind pick up and decided I better come in.. I had just sat at my computer by the picture window and reached to unplug it , as the cord came out of the laptop, the hairs on my arm stood up and the room filled with a white , brilliant light. and then BOOM.. scared my bird half to death too. It's just that quick...Of course, I gave thanks to the Lord for His direction or I would not be here.  I never did find when it came down though..
  Rabbit, I sure hope you finally get some rain but without the lightening . We got an additional inch about 2 am this morning in a fast moving storm and just missed one this afternoon.. but could hear the thunder.

edit : My tv was on a surge protector the kind with a co ox protector as well so the lightening  didn't get it directly but did mess up some of the hdmioutputs and my old vcr/cd player connected to it.. -expensive lesson  but had a square trade warranty- they send me a new tv.

We received 3 inches of rain Monday afternoon and 2 inches yesterday (Wed)  evening . Unheard of for July. We were sure grateful. However, there was a lot of lightening with the storm yesterday and look what happened a 1/2 mile from the house and right across from our pasture. Don't go out in bad weather or they say , even "if you just hear thunder ".  This tree could be you ! It blew all the bark off and the top out and onto the road.

Bob, The deer ate my okra down to a ft when I went to Ark to take care of the old homeplace for 2 days.  I got back and saw that and just got so angry. !! I put up electric fence all  up and down it so it can re sprout.  Hope yours comes out .

I got the seed today Ragun. :)  I went ahead and planted most of them since time is getting on, but did hold some back just in case..  They look so professional  the way you packaged them too. :)  Now just waiting for them to sprout .   judy

That's good to know Lakerat. I'll be getting some of that ! Had one of the big orange wasps dive bomb me in the hat  but was blessed and his stinger wasn't long enough to go thru the ball cap.
 They love the nooks and crannies at the barn - thanks again . :)

  This sounds exciting, however, I have some blight in parts of my garden. If , at the end of this taking and you still have a few seed left, I would be glad to participate by using a new section  of  unadulterated  garden that across the driveway.   judy
