winter is just about starting and I get a seed catalog in the mail. I think it is way too early to be thinking seeds but per cap coming. I save many of my seeds but still buy some. I want to reach the point of not having to buy seed. I will look at what seeds I have on hand before ordering any.
I got a call from the computer repair folks. my disk has to be replaced at a cost of $195. good news is all my data will be saved and my storage will double to 1 TB. they will reload all my software as well. I can live with that. this is still cheaper than buying a new computer. the repair guy said I had a good machine. I knew that when i shopped around for it. I may be a country indian but I know what I need for the long run.
the wind blew a box of deer tails off the shelf. the dogs got to them and tore them up. now I have to buy more deer tails. the price of deer tails has doubled since I was making roaches last. I will buy enough to last the winter.
good thing I am getting per cap. it is slowing dwindling away before I get it but I will have a computer. i will pay for my propane, ku tickets, deer tails and seeds too. I have been broke before. when I am broke I will be warm, have a computer to play on and can go watch my favorite team play. don’t take too much to make this indian happy.
I will set my live traps today. Andrew is here and he is always game to do that. indians say you don’t eat rabbit til after the first snow. we had that on Halloween I think. I even washed my face in that first snow. I notice rabbits around my place. I might walk to the timber the next snowfall and do some hunting.
I might clean chickens again. seems they are eating the eggs. I don’t feed them for nothing. I expect something in return. either eggs or chicken soup. I go out to the chicken house a coupla times a day to see if I can save the eggs. it works sometimes. I might get 7 eggs a day or none. I will need to get chicken feed soon.
gotta let the fire go out. the pipes need to be cleaned out again. I don’t know how many times I do that each winter. the tribe did it for me once this year. I will clean the pipes this time.
I get to watch the jayhawks play on espn today. I am not a doomsday fan that gave up on them after one loss. i did give up on the chiefs. the jayhawks haven’t played up to their potential yet. when they do, no one can beat them. only question in my mind is how will they do in the possible six games during the ncaa tournament. one loss and you go home.
