When we lived in Schenectady (+/-12 years ago), my next-door neighbors were a really nice young Cuban family who barely spoke English, but they worked hard to make it. The husband would go deer hunting every weekend, which means he would dress and clean his kill right in the backyard. Of course the city frowned upon it when the stench, along with bloody deer/buck heads on the family picnic table were left out overnight in the summer and turned into a fly/maggot fest within a day - then they'd come and offer some fresh deer meat.

An exciting day for all the gun deer season hunters in these parts.  Let's go shoot a beautiful, defenseless animal for the meat and the antlers.

Mama is attending a hunter's widow weekend flea market and let's get baked sale. I'm kidding , dammit!

No,  over at the Fin and Feather they are giving free space for local people to sell their arts and crafts.
She has been making jewelry for years and this may be the chance that we see some some real money back in the checking account.

Went into Ace today for arch parts.  There was an employee at the opposite end of an aisle, setting up an endcap display.  I heard a crash & looked down the aisle.  Mentally said W... T... F... when I noticed there was somebody under it.  So I went over and shifted a metal panel off his face, and lifted the back panel away so he could get out from under it.  He was a bit dazed.  Asked if he was okay (he said he was, probably more embarrassed than anything), so I went on my way.  

Later in the day, the door-to-door AT&T reps came by to try to sell me a bundle deal.  The big doof making the sales pitch didn't even know what AOL was LOL.  Sent them away after they wasted 3 minutes of my day...

I had an ambitious plan of things to do today, I got some of it done. First of all, it was as cold as hell...Confused.

It was 22 degrees this morning and that means a hard frost, I couldn't start mulching leaves until 10:00.
Between walking around with the blower and riding the tractor, I'm gonna need a second aspirin today.

I'll take Mama with me to Poy Sippi tomorrow to buy some wood before the precipitation arrives.

I also cleaned up the garage and pulled the snowblower out of the shed. When I say cleaned that means I swept the floor.  I cut up 2 X 4's for kindling and sometimes split wood with a maul for easier starts. Sawdust and chunks of wood build up.

No, it might have been fun to see how she was with a kitten or puppy.  Of the 4 Shepherds I have owned, Leah was by far the most high strung and hyperactive of them all.  She took her job as a watch dog very seriously.  But she had a very strong maternal instinct. She was a completely different dog around small children. Very gentle, cautious and protective.

It was a big German Shepherd.  Rocco probably would've kicked his ass.

Went out messing around today and ended up near our local Hobby Lobby.

They have this Halloween coffee mug that I saw last year and meant to see if they had any marked down the day after, but never got around to going.

Thought about going again this year but figured it'd be a wasted trip and that all their leftover Halloween stuff would be sold out by now. But since I was there today anyway, I went in just to see.

They had a whole aisle full of leftover H'ween stuff and as luck would have it, they had ONE of those mugs left.

Everything was marked 50% off so I figured with the regular price being $8.99 I'd get it for ± $4.50.

Took it to the register and it rung up at 66% off, so I got it for $3 bucks!!!!





Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I put the cats in the one big carrier, and took them for their shots.  The line was about 100 pets long even before the clinic opened.  Just as I began walking from my car to the end of the line, the handle on the carrier snapped.  I blame Rocco, who's become kind of a tubbo.  I had to carry the carrier there, and then push it along as the line moved.  The one dog in line that was barking was the one right in front of me.  I'm sure the cats loved that.  There was one vet there administering shots.  It just so happened it was my vet, the son of a woman I work with.
 
Brought the cats home.  Rocco tore ass and disappeared.  Crawled up into the box spring of my bed and hid there for hours.  He was not happy.  LOL

I'm taking cats Mickey and Rocco in for free rabies vaccines tomorrow, courtesy of the township.  Not sure how it's gonna work out.  I've got a cat carrying container that's big enough for both of them, but I worry that if Rocco sees other cats, he may go ballistic, and I don't want him to go ballistic on Mickey.
 
Maybe I'll bring along another, smaller cat carrier just in case they have to be separated.

Yep, the county runs an all purpose facility. It's not usually free but it is convenient. They charge according to the weight and type of materials you want to dump. My empty weight, 5280 lbs, was not even a factor with the stuff I dropped off.

We've got Advance Auto Parts stores around here who take used oil for free.

Staples Office Supply stores take used electronics for free, too.

It's good to recycle!!!

I swear...I think I see more amputees and limbless people in one day of TV viewing (mostly commercials) nowadays than I have in person my entire life.
