New Day and More Stress

Thanks Abe, this is a mourning dove, it just has the spot on the side of its neck, I also checked if it was a turtle dove but that it isnt LOL. It would appear that most of the doves around here are of this variety, I dont think I have seen the ring necked here at all.

RR I agree I would love to trade off some of our heat for your cold, we are sitting in the upper 80s again today and the state is getting hit hard with storms and rain and tornados, while I normally complain about our little pocket of land always missing the rain like it did last year, this year I am glad because most of the state is being declared a disaster area almost because we have such bad flooding, and the states around us.

I wish I could find a climate where it is just pleasant all year round LOL wishful thinking.

The stress is mounting as I think that I am not going to be able to use the pasture down the road that I used last year. The owners are having health problems and we have been having problems finding someone to bale the four foot high grass that has grown there already. The owners want it cut and baled before we put any animals on it, but we went over to see her today and I get the feeling that because of her health and her husband's moreso, it is not going to happen. They are more likely to sell the place off. If I had the money I would snap it up in a flash, it is a really nice place and has a total of 32 acres, most of which they rent out to farmers.

I will post again later and hopefuly be able to find a picture to go with it but I am just so stressed at the moment I could dig a hole and bury myself in it LOL.

Stress is a funny thing. You have to agree to have it. If you don't agree you don't have it.

Then once you agree you don't have it then you have to make sure you don't get it by changing the thing that is causing the stress.

If it is horses and hay there is only one or two things that seem possible. Buy the hay (lots cheaper than buying 32 acres) or sell the horses or rent them out to people who want to ride a horse now and then.

We are hotter than hell here too. Supposed to be 93 today. And cooler tomorrow with storms and tornados.

Can't win for losing.

You weather doesn't sound good. I'm glad you're safe in your area anyway.

Here it's back to the 50s again. I dont remember a summer like this since 1959. Then it was this way the whole darn summer.

I think I live in the only place on earth where it is pleasant all the time. Seriously. I've missed you.
