        It took a while, but it's finally "long".
        In May 2010 I cut it about 2" long.

        The chocolate coins just looked - waxy (and I knew I had better waiting for me at home)

        The pains, almost immediately. The bloating, Saturday night, Sunday??

        • I've had 2 very busy days.
          And another one tomorrow.
          I have photos.
          Right now, I'm going to bed.

            We went out to the bush and dug up 5 trees:





            And planted them at home:



            I borrowed some old pruners from my in-laws and turned this:

              I DROVE the COMBINE!!!



              1st time EVAR!

              There are multiple steps to remember when driving a huge piece of expensive machinery.
              (besides the obvious "Don't hit anything")



              When starting, make sure you are in low gear
              flick up the main combine switch
              flick up the header switch
              THEN shift to high gear
              lower the header
              line up to the rows of corn
              drive straight down the row
              at the end
              lift up the header
              flick off the header
              flick off the main combine switch
              swing out the auger arm
              line up to the wagons
              switch to low gear
              lift the lever that starts the auger (to unload the corn)
              switch to medium gear
              if necessary, move the combine a little to evenly spread the corn in the wagons
              when empty
              switch to low gear
              lower the lever that stops the auger
              swing the auger back in place
              line up for the next row and repeat all steps

              From 10 am till 5 pm.
              My Farmer drove the full wagons to the elevator and back.

              My friend came and rode around with me for a couple of hours:


              At 5 I left the field to make supper. I had to drive the tractor home
              Another 1st!



              After supper I went to band.

              • Reminds me of my first driving experience - a tractor at age 7 when we lived in Italy! My parents had a fit, but the local family next door thought nothing of it. As I recall it was fun......

                • Yeah, it was fun

                  I'll let you know if it's still fun at the end of November...

                  • Tuesday

                    Well I had yet another job interview at 10am today.
                    Got the "Sorry, but you were the unsuccessful candidate" call at 3pm.

                    My life...

                    I was on my way into London to go shopping with my daughter.
                    She needed a Halloween costume.
                    Surfer Son needed a video game.

                    I got nothin'

                    A few Winencandy ranch photos:

                    We made the Butterfly pen larger. This is what the antique "Double Loop" fencing looks like:



                    Here's their larger pen (I'm still going to make it bigger):


                    The Greenhouse and the "drinkin' water" well pump are in the background.

                    Another view of their pen (from the greenhouse)



                    Here's my chair inside the greenhouse:



                    My still growing tomatoes:




                    Observation:
                    I bought a box of my favourite wine on Friday.
                    3L box (equal to 4 bottles)
                    The box says it will stay fresh for 6 weeks.
                    I thought I'd try it.

                    6 weeks...
                    Pffft
                    The wine is gone.
                    5 days.
                    4 bottles...

                      All I can say is "been there, done that..."

                      Sucks about the job interview. Really.

                      I love your greenhouse! You're going to have a lot of planning for spring!

                      And that's a "pen"? More like a butterfly acreage Lucky doggies.

                      • I forgot,
                        On the way home from the interview I stopped at an indoor track (in an arena)
                        I changed and walked a lap and then walked up and down all the stairs around the arena, followed by another lap up top.
                        I was going to do another stair lap, but I did something to my knee and it hurt while doing the stairs the second lap.
                        So I quit.

                          Thanks Greensprout
                          I'm beginning to think I'm not meant to be a teacher...
                          Although I did talk to someone the other day who'd been on the supply list for 9 years...

                          Right now I'm trying to convince my Farmer to NOT tear down the greenhouse.
                          I know. Farmer. Greenhouse. You'd think it wouldn't be an issue...
                          He's worried about weeds.

                          By the time I'm done, the pen will be 3x that size

                          Spoiled little Butterflies

                          But the alternatives: coyotes, raccoons, skunks, possums (I saw one of those in my lane yesterday!) and the highway...
                          these are all not acceptable...
