Spring Things Doings,
My last year rubber boots crease fold cracked. I/we either rains or nightly cool down, dew-downs need these over 300 morning of the year or suffer from wet cold feet. The $44.usd, made in USA Chinooks last just as long as all of the really good-excellent, super conferrable $100-150. rubber boots I previously used. Muck brand. XtraTuf brand. Sorel. LaCross. And all others. Same-same problem. Bend crease rubber hardening and then cracking. Wettened, cold morning feet and socks. Sucks.
The difference in price buys at least half a roll of needs-fencing stocks. 10 hd Tee posts.
My point fellows is when you do actually live Rural you will always have more driven needs-musts than time-in-the-day; dollars available, month to month.
You gotta’ stretch things out. Make do. Or, do without.
How I’ve come to realize most on public forums are really just living no-commitment fantasy life’s.
They never run out. Of “better” Ideas. Of Ideals. Of Perfections chasing.
No rain today. Hurrah! First in the last 13.
Off to buy another roll of woven fencing to try and keep a wandering neighbors dog off of my property before he learns to chickens chase and kill… HIS owners money/time got used up adding 35’s and new wheels to his Toyota tonka Tundra truck. Before that the winch/brush guard/basher front bumper assembly. Before that the bed liner and hard shell fold-able bed cover. Oh, yeah.Full body Statement overly decals applique’s, and a new full across LED over the cab light bar were the first do-dads.
Yet his cheapest bought big-box store consumer chain saw has already crapped out. Wants to use my woodcutter Stihl 440 Magnum to carve down some 56"+ butt cut-off rounds I gifted to him by request. He wants to make a custom bed head stead.
I do not do Fancies.
I do not do Fashion Statements.
I do not do Artistic Statements.
I do not do Vanities expressions.
And I hate being Taxed to pay for Others do-nothing for me and mine, Expressions-Statements, itch-scratching!!
Know I will get cut and bleed some over that from a measly 3 1/2 foot chainlink “fancy” fence raised up to a dog proof 5 foot effective fence height.
The Tough DO. And survive. Are lucky.
Two different bantee hens did clutch sit through the snows and cold rains. Five hatched for one. Two for the other. Then those numbers fell. One too weak to make it even the first hour. Two creek wettened, hypothermia. Some just could not stay close to their get-about Mommies. Rain wetten, hypothermia. I did find all of these. Down to only two very lively chicks now. No doubt some were kitty cat pick off. All this is a natural weening out.
But years experiences now says the remaining will always be very tough, durable, and “lucky”.
Live a life of always making your own Luck. Be tough. Be durable.
Ha! (sorry to say this) just have to be grass’s mowing late this afternoon. Just havta’. Otherwise it will get too-tall and later the mowers will decks clog up.
I’ll mix up the push-walk-behind, and the rider, works.
Be one sore puppy tonight. OTC pain pills to sleep.
Pain is the very best way to prove to yourself that you are still in a Real-Life.
Fantasists know no real physical pain or danger. Why they learn poor effective true Life skills and techniques. Reset button. Go again.
In Real Life even a flesh wound will leave a nerve deadened, and dimpled down scar area from the tissue loss. Last you lifetime. Reminding you to really do better, always.
Be Real. Bleed a bit to do, learn, accomplish… Be willing to actually live with a lot of self-made pain. That’s Alive.
Be Alive. Be Real.
