grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Any good evidence they were the culprit? I'd ask the neighbors to replace them.....and keep their dogs fenced. We mostly have wild critters getting them.Wife sent me pictures earlier this morning of our chicken coop. Something dug a large hole under the fence and went in and killed a bunch of our hens; five dead, two missing. I'm livid. So, when I get home this evening, I get to go have an unpleasant talk this evening with our new neighbors, whose large dogs seem to keep getting out of their completely fenced in property, and have been spending a lot of time at the fence staring at our chickens.
PJS, I've done about 98% of my time in mfg in the shop, and 2% filling in for QC guys on vacation. One thing I've determined about shops is, I like for the owner to be as far away as possible from the day to day mistakes. Insulated ownership. An owner that's breathing down your neck with anger when a mistake is made is no fun.
My new job has been mostly awesome. I tell folks that I'm so busy the day flys by. There are too many emails though. I have about 4 guys above me that want to be "in the loop", so when an email floats around, it gets 4x the banter. I'm writing a proposal for a new cnc mill. There is some budget money left, but I don't know how much. It's up to about $250K with workholding and tooling, 5 axis rotary tilting table, probing, all the cool stuff....I don't know if it will make the cut, but it could sure bring some modernization to our group. One thing about the job, I'm in charge of fixing things and safety in about 12-15 rooms. I'm getting help, but I don't know the half of it yet. I told my boss I just don't want any "gotchas" to jump up and bite me.
RNG, I used my trailer to haul my loot back home last weekend.
Ken, I'm really enjoying your photos. What a trip you guys got to take.
rs, I really hope Toppop Randy pops back on here soon....and I wish gas was back down to $1.79 so that my bag of corn chips will go down too.
Mike, glad to hear your wifey is doing good and doing yoga. My daughter likes to "kick me out" when she does her exercises. Maybe its the comments from the peanut gallery that gets me the
Mostly, it was an armadillo headed back home in the morning from near my home. I have found one of them tearing the crap out of fire ant mounds, so maybe I don't mind a few grubbing holes in the yard.
My daughter's job is giving her a lot more hours this year. Last year, they would only give her about 4 hours max, maybe 3-4 times a week. This year she's getting close to 25 hours a week or more. They've started putting her in charge of the other young people when the boss has to leave for some hours or day. No pay raise though. She doesn't mind it, because it is getting her more hours of work than the other youngsters. She asked for me to get her my recently passed away FIL's truck. It's a 4WD Dodge with the 360 hemi, it gets around 10-11mpg around town. I told her the mileage and how much gas it would cost to go to her friend's house and back. She says with a downward swoon, Ooooh.
Thomas, waiting to see some mad bear/mirror video.
Prayers for our team, rain, Bupps, Randy, Ron, LS4, Dave and Sophie, Eric, my friend's mother Shirley, our law enforcement, our country, and Ukraine.
