So we have animals who evolved on the steppes of Russia


We live in Texas.
last week the wife decided that it was going to be too cold for them to survive without coats.

Expensive coats.

So she put coats on all she could.
Including Molly, the littlest one.

It looks like it works

And only cost what I had in landscape timber and screws.






I pushed all the wasted hay from about five $60 round bales into a pile that would probably make an entire new round bale and a half.

Hopefully they won't waste as much and take longer to eat these square bales.

Today was my Monday

And all 14 hours took the best shot at reminding me of it.
Every time I turned around.

If someone offered me a decent job, I'd quit tomorrow.

Texas elected Ted Cruz again- barely

It should have been a lot wider margin than 2.6%.

But Greg Abbot keeps begging Liberal, Blue State Carpetbaggers to move here.
And just like everywhere else the four big cities (and the coastal bend) almost overwhelmed the rest of the voters.


What can we do?
I don't know. If we can't get the Left out of their self contained echo chamber...which they move to and think they're in Texas...... they'll turn Texas into California.

I was getting gas today

And noticed another familiar site above Walmart.
When is the Left going to ever let us put this back at full mast?

Or are they?

I voted today

The parking lot in Seguin was so full that I had to park half a block away.

Then I did something I never thought I'd do.
I clicked the box to vote straight Republican.

I don't know how much my company paid for their new navgation system

It's some variation of Verizon Navigate that was cutting edge back when George W. was in his first term.

They haven't updated it much since then.
The voice sounds like her name is Phyllis and she's talking from a kitchen table in NJ with an ahtray mounded over with snubbed out butts and a 2/3 empty bottle of cheap scoth on the counter next to a sink full of dirty dishes.

She butchers every name she pronounces and you basically have to almost know where you're going to know where to go.

I was in Austin and she pronounced Caesar Chavez dead nuts on with not one mispronounced letter.

The front fell off

Because fronts aren't supposed to come off.


And you're supposed to stop digging when you get stuck.


Now we'll see what that 20 year old K3500 does.
I hope the front doesn't come off.

And neither does the transmission.........

It was raining in Austin last night

F%cking pouring actually.
AS I was on the way home from the rout it really started coming down and the entire drive through Austin on I-35 looked like some kind of major accident scene.

Because of the frigging MORONS who had to put on their hazards as soon as they turned on their wipers.
You couldn't tell if anyone was disabled, going slower or changing lanes- because every 4 wheeler on the road had their fucking flashers on.

Which idiotic blue state tells people to use their hazards in the rain?

It must be blue state Carpetbaggers because Austin is the only Texas city I've seen it done.

Seen at a Murphy's in Selma, TX


I haven't figured out the price per mile, but I'm sure it would even out- since they probably price it per BTU like we did for natural gas.


I was fueling the work truck and noticed the new blue hose...




I know mt S-10 V-6 went from about 22MPG to about 18 1/2 MPG when congress rewarded Big Ag by making us put food in our tanks.

So lets give that a try
22/ $2.92= 7.53
18.5/ $2.52= 7.34

Did I do that right?
It looks like it's about .2 cents more per mile for regular- unadulterated gas.



EDIT-

Anonymous gave me the right formula:
$/mile would be:
$2.92 / 22 = $0.133/mile, and
$2.52 / 18.5 = $0.136/mile.

Underground utility inspections

Whenever you put conduit in the ground you need to have it inspected.






Sometimes there needs to be a consultation.

The computer mind

.....Well GPS anyway,,,


You're on a 5 lane highway, about a mile away from where you lose two lanes and there's a huge back-up from two different on-ramps about 1/4 mile apart farther on

GPS-"TAKE THIS EXIT SO YOU CAN BYPASS THIS SLOWDOWN, THEN GET BACK ON AT THE NEXT ONRAMP"

Because adding to the mess on the highway will save you about 1/10th of a second.
...And sheeple do it and add to the mess already happening.

I thought you were supposed to be able to find anything on AlBores intratoobz

I've been looking for a good three hours on how the furling mechanism works on a water/farm windmill.
All I can find is a general description of how and why it works, or how to do it on wind generators.
It's centuries old technology that nobody wants to describe how it works. Even a parts breakdown doesn't show it all and the ONLY helpful description was on a side thread from some old time quilting site.

CCR and modern politics


On one side we have the Normals (as Kurt Schlichter like to refer to us) reacting to the election of Trump


And on the other, the ones that hoped Felonia Von Pantsuit (HT Kurt again) and their vision of America


Or just enjoy some good music...

Hole #2

I didn't have to wait long to fill that one up.

Still have one open

Half a million reasons that it pays to be a swamp creature

Yep, Peter Sztrok the #RESISTANCE goto enabler has almost $500K in his gofundme page.
I'm sure from other career Leftist  bureaucrats.

It's dead Jim.........

Yeah the sick donk is dead.

Now I'll have to figure out a way to drag it out of the garden without fucking up my fences or gate too badly.

And pay for a backhoe.

Why I don't associate with Liberal- a personal experience

The wife has some liberal friends, she told one of them about kill pens and so- being a Liberal -she had to "do something".

So she went and bought three donkeys somewhere north of Dallas.

She told the wife "I think I bought three donkeys."
Wife: "You think you bought three donkeys?"
Lib: "I did buy three donkeys."

The wife was told where they were and to go get them.
-no gas money
-no pre-notice to anyone *this is important**
- only a vague address to where they were to be picked up.

So when the donkey finally get to Snakebit Acres and in the garden- to quarantine ours from whatever they could be carrying...........
 
We find out that the place they were supposed to go wouldn't take them--- because SHE DIDN'T ASK PERMISSION!

So Wife found two (or three) adoptors...IF they're healthy enough.

One is down with some kind of respiratory problem and another one has the same symptoms.

Now I'm going to have to rent a backhoe--one short notice to bury one of them on my dime.
And another one when the next one dies........... on my own dime and probably have to take off from work to do it.

...............Because that Liberal did "something" and has washed her hands of the results.

Butshe feels good about it- which is all that matters.

Which is all that matters whenever a Liberal does "something" to help----- and generally makes things worse.

But at least they feel good about "doing something".

Too good not tp share

Ended up with a new phone

The wife's 2 year old phone died so we got a "better" deal if we got two, so I got rid of the good one I had for almost five years but was slowing down and having microphone problems.

I'll be off line for the next couple hours trying to figure out the best way to use it.

Sigh................

Labor Day driving

From Austin to Corpus Christi- these last two days- it's like someone took a gunnysack of assholes have it a couple good shakes to piss them off, dropped car keys in and dumped them out along the roads......

Molly- our newest

Has found the salt block and the water trough


The paddock right now is her race track.

I'm seeing these tributes to John McCain

And it seems like they forgot how he's been stabbing Republicans in the back for the last 35 years or so.

Not to mention the Keeting 5 scandal and his amnesty for illegals Gang of 8 among other things.
I'm glad you're gone and maybe AZ will send someone close to a conservative to DeeCee next.

Trailer Time

For creatures who don't want to load when you want them to, they're happy to hop in when there's a few strands of hay left.
