Corn or Milk

I am sending this again because I can't believe today is the second time this week I have had a Corn or Milk snake under my refrig and I just happened to be standing  there and out he crawls.  I have called Critter Control to come and inspect my home. It cost but I am too jumpy to live with this every day.  If you know of anyone who has done this please let me know appreciate all comments
Have a great weekend by the way please take care

Corn or Milk

I am not worried about the name of this snake but I smelled something different around where I keep the dog food.  It is what I called a wild smell.  I found some small 1 inch of Poop on the rug under the dog food container and couldn't figure who might of done that?   I ask Hubby he agrees it wasn't a mouse.  I ask him if he could pull out the refrigerator and he obliged.  Nothing to see Jim went in the other room  I screamed and a foot of this snake was crawling from under my refrig.   Well my grandson likes snakes so as I am standing on a chair I called and said I have a snake in my kitchen.   After some searching the area under my dishwasher and cabinets  he came out with this snake.   No I didn't sleep very well  was on the look out for another one.  I hope this is the end of the story.
Take care and watch where you walk

Mothers Day

 Since today was Mothers Day  I figured my son was running the sprayer and that is one piece of equipment I haven't ridden  in so I ask if there was room for 2 and he said yes.  I am sure he didn't know I was going to blog about this ride.   We came after weeds and there is a picture of them.  My surprise was the Auto Tracking  I had  heard talk about it but hadn't seen it, so it was something new to learn.  Farming has changed so much in the last 5 years but like everything else I am sure it will continue to change.
We are suppose to have a great weather this  week, I hope you all get to enjoy.    Take care and be careful 
Auto Tracking  it follow the straight line it will come around until it is straight.   It knows where it has been 

These are the weeds that were sprayed this will be a Soybean field

Coming home

Planting and Hummers

 The Hummers showed up 3 days ago.  Always look forward to them coming for the summer  and when they bring the babies their feathers stick out like me when I have a bad hair day. 

 My garden  is about ready to plant but I am afraid to start too soon so that is on hold until warmer weather.  Below is our first field planted always like to start close to the shed in case of trouble.  Everything work when the set up fellows are here but when you go to the field it sometimes is another story.
We have had a couple of more calves.  Jim found a few cow /calves to purchase.  They are just waiting on the bulls to be released for the summer.  The bulls are still singing their song.
Not sure what the weather is like for the week but today is perfect.
Take care and be nice to each other.
It is a start

Red-Bellied Woodpecker

 This bird works for hours getting seed to feed her family.  She is a beauty

 I need help to identify this bird the only name I can come up with is a female Red-winged Blackbird but it doesn't fit the description in my bird book   Joni James can you answer this question  Joni  is a naturalist expert Birds and all living things.
Farm report:  Had a couple of calves this week maybe a few more to come.  I quite counting.  Good grass pastures   The Bulls are ready to go out they hum all the time that low noise I guess their motors are running.    The cow and calves have all had their shots. 
The field work is coming right along  I hear there is rain in the forecast for tonight  hope we don't get much.
Take care and be kind to others

Dreary day compared to yesterday.  Saw this little guy at the feeder and he had one foot hanging on while he ate from the feeder.  Maybe he was tired like me wanted to take a nap all day but here it is 7:45 can't nap now too close to bedtime.  I am going to watch the music awards  didn't see anything else on TV.
Our store has been doing well we have lots of new merchandise stop by some time.  Also we have a new facade on our building  windows and double door.  We will have a new awning ours was destroyed by an ice burg in Feb tore a 18 inch rip and poked 2 holes.  There is still painting to be finished but we are please to have been a part of this grant.
Another week ahead take care and be kind

Vulture Time

 I always hate to see these birds they are ugly to look at but that head is for a reason.  They eat dead animals, road kill and afterbirth from our cows that is left.  They are the clean up birds.  Their heads are like that so they don't pick up disease.  I came  upon them while I was checking on the Eagles a couple of weeks ago.  They are very large when they are in the road eating something they don't want to move and you have to drive around them.
Farm report  Moving right along with all work  getting a lot done.  Cows are good a few more to
calf. Pastures are growing.  The hay field is beautiful hope there is some grass in there looks like a green carpet.  
Take care and be kind to everyone.

I love this old windmill used to pump water.
