A Rainy Day Success

Feb
16

It’s been raining all day and the culvert is NOT FLOODED. For a change!

Besides my personal convenience during daily chores, straightening up the culvert so that it wouldn’t make a pond every time it rains was important in order to start doing business out here. I don’t think people would enjoy the conditions very much as they were. This is the first real good rain test since the work was done. On the downside, the rain has put off my “coop d’etat” on the chickens as chickens don’t cooperate very well in the rain.


In other news, you know I should not be allowed near shelter animals.

Say hello to Maude.

    Well, hello there Maude! You are beautiful! I can’t be trusted at an animal shelter either! :wave:

    Oh, she’s BEAUTIFUL! (I take it they didn’t have any LGD puppies who needed a home?) ;-)

    No, not at the shelter, but we’ve got our eye on one somewhere else.

    oh–and Maude is one year old, spayed, etc. She came with the name Maude, so we’ll stick with that.

    Very glad to see the drain work WORKS!!!

    Maude was my grandmother’s name and I like it. She sure looks like a pretty kitty. Hopefully, we’ll get to see a picture of all of her soon.

    :help: I shouldn’t check out our vet’s online site…we also have a new kitty. His name is Sammy and he is a devil. Makes three kitties now and love them all to pieces.
    Glad to see Maude and also see your culvert is working.

    Such a sweet dang face!!!! Love her name also.
    Wished I could have a nice cat, but my little “rattie” (Toy rat terrier,) would tear it up…. He’s an 11 lb beast! We can’t even feed the birds, he jumps and catches them midair!!! Bad Buzzer, Bad bad bad……. :devil2:

    Taking your dog to a vet associated with an animal shelter might not save you money in the long run. ;) Maude is beautiful. I think your new farm needed a Maude.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! Me too, ask Missy, Jasper, Rudy, Petey and Casey. We got to name two of those and that’s it.

    Hi Maude :)

    Too cute!!
    I would love to have more animals but I think I am at my limit now!!! 3 cats, 2 dogs, 1 bunny, 2 turtles, 1 fish and then the chickens! I think if we brought home another pet my kids would actually get bothered..haha!

    Our shelter has so many animals that need a good, forever home. But I know we are at our limit – my DH has told me so. :? Maude is a very pretty kitty and she is one lucky little girl. Glad she has been spayed. We practice that as well. Chickens are so much easier in that respect!

    So glad the culvert is working and you do not have a rain pond on the property today!

    Maude is a beauty.

    I don’t even have to go to the shelter. We seem to be the local dump spot for unwanted kitties and dogs. I feed, heal and rehome the doggies, but the cat count around here is getting pretty high.

    Hi Maude, I think you have chosen a wonderful family to live with. Take good care of them with lots of purrs, snuggles and kitty kisses.

    Awwwww Maude knew what she was doing when she batted her eyes at you. She’s beautiful!
    BTW Suzanne, my Roane County born grandmother’s name was Maude :hug:

    I’m married to a veterinarian whose practice also does all the work for the local SPCA. We accumulate animals too, so I completely understand!

    Hello there Maude! What a sweet face . . . and look at those teeny little pink paw pads! Glad she’s not hiding in a closet somewhere.

    Happy about your lack of a pond Suzanne!

    What a cute kitty! I am so happy for you that the culvert is working properly! I have longed for a Great Pyrenees for quite some time now. One of our local shelters has a male available for adoption and he’s such a handsome dog, but way too big for our small home and yard. Maybe some day…

    Welcome, Maude! Hope all the other kitties like you and let you play with them and share the food.

    Suzanne, Maude looks like a sweetheart. I confess I’ve lost track of how many cats and other cute little critters you have. But they’re all lovely.

    There has to be something very satisfying about a dry culvert. Worth some sort of celebration. . . oh! I see. . .

    “And then there’s Maude…
    …Right On!, Maude”

    Maude is SO cute! She looks a lot like my little Kali-ko Kat that adopted us right before I went to Retreat. The last thing in the world I wanted or needed was another cat, but she had other ideas. I am sure you will love Maude as much as I love Kali.

    And I am glad Lake McMinn has gone away!

    Your new culvert is a work of out. If I’d had the flooding I think I would just stand there and watch the water run into the new culvert! Maude is very cute.

    Lake McMinn… I love it. Glad to see it gone as I know you are. Maude is adorable. In addition to having a pink bedroom I am sure being the crazy cat lady is another good way to keep the men away too!

    How are Kitten and Little doing? Haven’t read anything about them lately, but I understand why, you’ve had tooooo much going on!

    Glad your culvert is working out. You certainly don’t need flooding problems to add to your list. Maude is quite a beauty. I couldn’t have resisted that sweet face either.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
