-- The copperhead snake under the water trough is now a dead copperhead. My hubby said that the moral of the story is "never return to the scene of the crime."
-- This is our county fair week, so I have been busy!!
-- I lost another chicken to the heat, this time a young cockerel. I usually lose a chicken during fair week; this one was a few days early but I hope it'll be the only one.
-- We picked up a load of hay; it's wonderful to see all those square bales stored in the barn!
-- The bucks are STINKY!! It's almost time to move them in with the does for breeding. I always wait till I get home from the fair, but one of my bucks is already off cavorting with the girls at a friend's farm.
-- Our TV weatherman gave us the summer statistics; we had:
The second-hottest June
The hottest July
The hottest August
The hottest summer
61 days of 100-degree or hotter (the most ever)
28 record-breaking daytime highs
Whew! I'm glad that's over!
