    I'm so glad your sore is getting well and It's crappy that probably a raccoon found your tortoise's pool overnight. Good thing you saw it quickly. Sounds like everything is on the upswing.

    My daughter loves to do those as well... we went camping on year at one of the Yellowstone parks and all of my kids got to tie dye their souvenir shirts.. they have all outgrown them but refuse to throw them out because of the memory:)

    I'm getting ready to turn my old t shirts into washable shopping bags. I found the simple instructions in a kroger coupon magazine I get. Kroger is phasing out plastic grocery bags in the near future soo...I would love to help.

    Hello everybody, I’ve not been very active on the CDR lately, mostly because of college. I love college!

    I’ve got a biology moc exam on Monday and oh man, it’s so much easier to revise a subject when you enjoy it:)

    That’s really great Ben! It’s a lot easier to do anything when you like it! I’m very proud of you!

    Good morning and happy Saturday!
    I can tell it’s officially fall now. I’m waiting on the sun to come up so I can get started on the blowing and raking leaves. I’ve already ordered my winter rye grass so I can over seed the tortoise yards sometime this week..

    Good Saturday morning to you too!
    I picked up a huge sack of rye grass seeds yesterday, a perennial variety, and seeded Clunker's pen. I still need to seed the rest of the yard though. We haven't lost many leaves here yet.
    Here in a few hours I've got to go catch a goat. My mom is giving me hers, she was going to be a milk goat but mom never had her bred. My neighbor has a billy so she will be going on dates next door.
    I hate being back in our old house here in Texas (love Texas though). I will be glad when we find the right place to buy. At least I'm close to family again. Although everybody keeps giving me stuff and it's starting to feel a little awkward.. I think they are all buttering me up[emoji15]

    It’s nice to see you back! I remember some goat wrangling days [emoji23]... I always loved the Nubians with their big floppy ears.. Still, I’m glad it’s you and not me:) what part of Texas are you in? I know you e already told me but my memory is pretty faulty!

    Being close to family has always been a double edged sword... I hope you’ve got the kind you like to be around:)) Starting a farm business is so hard. And i know it costs a lot of money to make money.. I think what your doing is awesome and I’m ALOT jealous! I would love to make money doing what my heart loves but that’s one thing me n hubby don’t agree on... YET [emoji6]

    Daughter has been monitoring her dormouse site today and it’s looking like it could be very important for these scarce creatures. She put up 50 nestboxes in the spring and 41 had something nest in them... not all dormice. Some had wood mouse nests and some bird nests (bluet-its really like them)

    She found 26 dormice today in all stages of the breeding cycle.

    This one is about 10 days old and still blind.

    This litter of 7 (!) is about 3 weeks old

    And here are more

    They are just so cute!

    Heart-warming words! Great choice of a major, Ben. The CDR is proud of you.
