Friday Bullets

  • Chickens have been laying in the field.  Found some hens trying to brood out their infertile eggs.  Don't they know that no egg sales = no chicken feed?
  • Raccoon spent several hours screaming to death (literally) near the barn.  We have no gun so called the Ministry guys to come out in their bomb squad gear to put it out of it's misery.
  • Starting to freak out about the party.  
  • The humidity is killing me.  I'm melting into a puddle on the floor. 
  • 6ft tomato plants and 4ft basil.  Loving the hoop house.
  • When you mail out a letter cancelling someone's home insurance during a postal strike, don't you think it would be considerate to give them a phone call?  It's been a last minute scramble to fix the electric and secure new insurance. 
  • Tire blew on the car. 
  • Need a new fantasy or scifi novel to read.  Any suggestions?


  1. Do you need any help with the party? I am happy to help in any way at all.

  2. The Ender's Game series is continually adding new books. They're always a good read.

    You should get a gun, or at least become comfortable with dispatching wounded animals with an axe.

  3. A gun is on our list of things to buy. We were hoping to have one by now but it's been a bit of a shitty summer. Limey kills our animals with a knife but the raccoon was a bit foamy so he didn't want to get too close to it.

    I think I want a stand alone novel, if that even exists in this genre. I'm a little sick of endless series.

  4. Hi,
    I just wanted to let you know that we won't be able to attend your party. I was looking forward to coming but I have too many other things on the go. This working stuff sucks.

  5. Book suggestion- Game of Thrones series.

  6. Forget the scifi crap - check out the ever
    entertaining site - plug
    in a fan right in yr face and just sit there
    quietly enjoying the fascinating world of free!
    Oh yeah say hi to Limey - miss him at the

  7. Anything by Robin Hobb is fantastic. Even though she writes series I don't think you'll mind. Charles De Lint writes one offs and he's Canadian.
    Graceling by Kristin Cashore was a good read and the library has it. Brian Sanderson is fabulous and his stand alone, except for the Alcatraz series which is about evil librarians taking over the world. It's for kids and is pleasantly light.

  8. Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series (seven so far) is mind-blowingly good. Each book is close to 1000 pages and I've re-read all of them a dozen times over the years, as well as gone and purchased all the audiobooks so that I can listen to them while I'm working or exercising. She's funny, sassy, incredibly clever, and offers a lot of heart in her stories.
