|Boo says: Cowgirl Up!
Boo is starting to build her wardrobe back up (post house fire.) She happily poses in her new cowgirl belt, boots and hat for a proud Daddy. We snuck out and picked up our favorite local treat: Sarsaparilla Rootbeer. She seems to be growing up faster than any of the girls right now. I guess it's her age. She'll be eight years old in April.
She really likes the new chicken coop. She's the only girl that enjoys chasing the chickens around trying to pick one up. She giggles as they hop and fly out of her grabbing hands. We spent a good 20 minutes yesterday just jumping around trying to corner a bird so she could hold it.
|Sorry for the flash-washout
What started out as ten chicks before the house fire turned out to be eight chicks and one rooster (one hen died) when we got them back from the generous neighbor who "chicken-sat" them while we were moving from neighbor to neighbor. They lived in our rental house for two weeks, the garage for two weeks and finally outside. I built them a small-ish coop (<==YouTube video for those on dial up) but it was enough to get them outside. The garage wasn't smelling so good.
The Queen got a new hairstyle and couldn't be happier. I'm so "old" that I had to ask her what the name of the style was called. "It's called Scene Dad." It should be called "hair is covering half your face" but whatever kiddo. She spends most of her time at home with earbuds in her ears listening to music. She doesn't know it but I can relate. Only my music came from a Ghetto Blaster and in those days, you could record songs off the radio station onto your cassette tape and nobody screamed Copyright Infringement! We didn't need The Pirate Bay...we had a Record button. You just had to sacrifice the beginning of your favorite song if you didn't hit the Record button fast enough.
|Thumbs up from The Queen at 13.
Wifey doesn't have a sewing room up and running yet though. She's kinda bummed about that. We inspected some wood built sheds last weekend in hopes we could someday soon afford one and turn it into her craft room. She really misses the nice one I built her back in The Valley. It had a place for just about everything. She was constantly making the girls outfits for just about every holiday.
|Wifey cowgirl'd up & my '81 Chevy
My new (new to me) 1981 Chevy pickup is giving me some trouble. After running for a while she'll die all of the sudden. Like she's not getting gas or something. I'll have to go through the fuel line next weekend and check the fuel filter, pump, etc. No telling what this old girl needs repaired but for $2k, I ain't complaining. She's no Orange Jeep but she's got a eight foot bed, big V8, 4x4 and a one ton axle.
