I am so sorry for neglecting my friends & fams here at HW! Thank you so much for remembering me! SE thanks for starting this post, it sure feels good to know Y'all were thinking about me! I sure didn't mean to worry anyone!
There is so much going on in my life right now w/ doctors, family, getting ready for the hollidays and all the usual chores & Honeydo's here on the farm! As usual, I'm trying to work through the pain but it has had me up against the ropes for the past couple weeks while biting off more than I can chew in what is really cold weather for Fla! I'm not evan sure where to start as there is so much to tell!
One of the biggest pains has been my wife's insurance changing Dec. 1st! I was seeing a sleep Dr. and had all my tests (lung & sleep)scheduled then her company dropped this insurance bomb on us! The sleep doc doesn't take my new insurance! Grrrr! Now after two months of waiting for dr. apts. and tests, I'm back to square one w/ a new doc! My pain doc's office is also closing (all the new Fla. pain clinic laws have really screwed things up) and I'll have to travel over an hour to see him this month! At least he takes the new insurance!
I was trying to get this all done before my Sons come home for Christmas! Yes, they are both coming home and will be here next week!!!!! I can't tell you how excited I am!!!
As Suzane wrote I had to build some doors for the horses who have been biting each other!
Oh, Thanks Suz for letting me know about this post> You're the Best!!!!!! Our mare Lily has a torn tendon in her front leg and has been crazy laim so we have been keeping her in her stall and just taking her out on a lead rope once or twice a day for a walk. She has been crazy cranky and the two have been biting each other through the stall doors which only had bottom halfs. El got bitten and cut right below his eye the other day! So I was asked to build top halfs for the doors to close her in and also keep the cold NW wind out.
Like Mikey said, I sent him & some others videos of the doors and my silly gelding "El" helping me w/ the doors. I posted the videos on Facebook if you want to see them.
I haven't been fishing lately as it's been so cold here but yesterday I said "screw it" and went w/ a friend over to the Crystal River for a few hrs. in the afternoon while it was warm (50's & 60's) and very sunny. The river was full of manatees and porposes near the spring holes keeping warm. There were also loads of fish in the warm water> it comes out 72 degrees all year. The problem was there were so many little fish biting (caught over 100!) we didn't catch any keepers. We did catch some pretty big fish but they were no good to eat and released unharmed w/ the little guys. It was a nice day though and really nice to get out evan though we didn't bring home any fish for dinner!
Well it will be getting light soon here and time to get moving again! I need to clean the boat from yesterdays carnage! Those little fish pooped all over the boat! Then pick up horse poop and maybe work on a fishing rod I'm building for my Brother (going through a painfull devorse!) for Christmas. (running out of time!)
I'll try harder not to be a stranger and I am sorry for not posting for a while!!!
Love All Y'all!!! Big Holliday Cluster Hugs!!!
