    Thanks ng, I have ac in my ride but refuse to have it anywhere else. I keep my windows closed in the heat and run a dehumidifier 80* feels like 60* when you come in from 95* feels like 110*. I am off of 1149 Trace south from the AA Grayson spur.

    Those milky eyes I would say she was getting ready to shed. I had several pet snakes as a youngster

    Yes, I think that's exactly what it is.

    Real pitbull breeders say it's not if it happens, but when it happens, and they carry break sticks in their pocket.

    DSC05057 (1200 x 800).jpg

    3 days ago, it happened. In play, I sinched up both dogs together and held them in side control. While my attention was diverted after letting them up, they decided to match to the death between themselves. A match to the death in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu results in a tap out simulating death, not so when bandogs match to the death. I put a choke hold on Tank and he eventually released Tiny's head. I had quite a tussle on my hands as I kept myself in the middle. I ended up with Tiny in a body triangle and blocked off Tank with my body, common sense slowly returned, and I was able to keep them separate.

    DSC05028 (1200 x 800).jpg

    Tank does not bite his handler in a fight. I can't say the same for Tiny. I ended up with bruises all over my arms and hands from teeth with one bad puncture wound. Tiny lost some hair and Tank has barely a scratch most of the blood in the fight was mine.

    DSC05030 (1200 x 800).jpg

    My puppies were quickly back to being best friends, one would be lost without the other. I irrigated and disinfected my puncture wound and as I sat there in the aftermath with an ice pack and whiskey I thought, wow, that was fun.

    I'm seeing now the trees that were hacked and squirt last year that leafed out this year are falling over.

    Crazy!! Glad you came out without needing a trip to the emergency room. I wondered what might happen when Tiny came of age. Do you think it will happen again, or did Tank establish enough dominance?

    I think that were okay but can't say it won't happen again. Tiny is generally submissive but has his limits. Perhaps no more jiu-Jitsu matches. My Loved One wanted to put all of the blame on Tiny still having his nuts and is making a case for cutting his off too. Tank lost his nuts but still has his kill switch. Tiny is a few months shy of 2 years of age.

    Thanks, doubt thou, if anyone will ever write a song about me.

    I was cleaning up a firewood pile that I let go to waste before making firewood out of it yesterday morning

    and found my first copperhead of the season.

    I relocated it to the back orchard to protect my pear trees from rodents. I love these little snakes.

    Watch that bite wound closely. Any sign of infection, go to the doctor. I’ve seen some nasty infections as a vet.

    Yes, thanks, my Loved One is also a vet, I irrigated it with cold water, hit it with peroxide, then chlorhex, ice, then her silver cream concoction wrap. It was looking a bit red yesterday as it has been unprotected for a couple of days now, so I put the cream on, and it looks fine today. I have been on the lookout for sepsis. LO wanted to double dose me with clavacillin but I fake took the antibiotics and stashed them for if I needed them.

    A new dawn has awakened on Stone Branch the 900-acre clearcut adjoining is commencing.

    Look who's talking, motorcycles and brook trout.

    False start, after the loggers bulldozed a new creek crossing over my neighbor's land without asking

    DSC05097 (1200 x 800).jpg

    today they packed up their tools and left, not enough wood chips in the woods for China to make it cost effective.

    DSC05094 (1200 x 800).jpg

    I'm okay with that too.

    No, they cut a road through the creek over my neighbor's property over a mile away from me, to circumvent a cement bridge with weight restriction.

    Food plots here in Kentucky sure have become a laid-back affair, mow once or twice and add some seed. I hand cut some pigweed before it's seed became viable in this plot.

    DSC05120 (1200 x 800).jpg

    Clover is now beating out the smart weed. I couldn't find any weeds that weren't being browsed other that some dogbane further up.

    DSC05116 (1200 x 800).jpg

    DSC05123 (1200 x 800).jpg

    First chanterelles in the path on the way up, that's all I found, but a good sign.

    DSC05124 (1200 x 800).jpg

    Storms are popping on top of me today so I'm up sprinkling out an old bag of beans. I'll come up in a few days after the rain days and spray some glyphosate and sprinkle out some brassica after that.

    DSC05125 (1200 x 800).jpg

    I finally found one in my path hunting in front of the vertical stick.

    DSC05126 (1200 x 800).jpg

    DSC05137 (1200 x 800).jpg

    I love these big ass snakes.

    Almost impossible to see. That would ruin your day stepping on one!

    In real life I saw him 10 feet out. I walked around it poking a camera at it and it never moved. If you were to step on it, it would probably make you aware prior.

    I'm ready for winter.

    Beans are germinating.

    DSC05179 (1200 x 800).jpg

    I sprayed 4 gallons of 2.25% gly.

    DSC05189 (1200 x 800).jpg

    As of now my target buck is the little racked 8 pointer that I have passed on a half dozen times, he is 5 or 6 years old.

    IMG_0015 (1200 x 675).jpg

    He has a goofy racked buddy that looks to be younger.
