Not Much Happening

It’s pretty calm around here.  We’ve got some gusty breezes but no rain so far.    I haven’t been able to watch much about it on TV due to the guys taking over both of them.    Chris always gets anxious during hurricanes/tropical storms so I’ve been telling him to calm down.   Every time he see’s our parish name (Tangipahoa), he thinks it means mandatory evacuation even if that isn’t what it means.

We’re expecting lots of wind and rain tonight.  Don had me park my truck close to the barn and away from any trees that might fall on it.  Lol.  The car and his truck are over there also.  He’s got the tractor parked in front of the chicken house and has the tractor bucket holding down some sheets of tin to keep them from going air-borne.


Buttons and Jet aren’t concerned about the weather.

Molly Mae has better things to do than worry.

The chickens couldn’t care less.  They’re busy scratching for bugs in their yard.

Big Bird

Don named her Big Bird when she was a wee chick.   She’s a Barred Rock.  Her feathers are so soft.  She likes to be held and comes running when she hears my voice.  She will hop up into the window in the coop for me to pick her up when I open it.  Here’s a picture of her roaming in the yard in front of the chicken house today.  We let her come out front when we’re there to watch over her.  She loves to scratch for bugs and worms.  Sometimes, I don’t even have to pick her up to take her back into the chicken yard.  She’ll just wander in with me and go through the door when I open it.  Spoiled, rotten chicken!

So, that’s what’s happening in our part of the world today.

    Our weather girl here says it is suppost to downgrade to a tropical storm but 65mph winds. We get 65mph winds here quite often. Hopefully all will be ok. Keep us posted please. Your in our prayers.

    I’ll be thinking of you and hope the hurricane ends quickly with minimal damage to everyone.
