A Little Flashback.....



I posted this back in June, after my raccoon carnage. After a few of you have commented that your girls have recently met their demise by creatures of the night, I thought I might post it again......

Don't forget, I always try to answer your comments within the comment area. Until I figure out how I can email you back, it's the best I can do!

Can't tell you how much I'm enjoying all of you. Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the world.



or maybe I should title this....My Exodus Off the Internet...I may never show my face here again after this!!!

This is the song I've been singing around the yard. I really can't believe I'm posting this....oh dear...I have rejection issues...this isn't good.

Glen is playing the guitar for me on this, and Aaron did my hair and is operating the video camera. Without further adieu....

Goodbye forever....

  1. Hi Jayme,
    I'm so sorry that happened to your chickens. I lost one to a bobcat last October. WE were OUTSIDE at the time. It was about 5:30 in the evening. I lost another to a raccoon last March when the coop was accidentally left open. I love your song! I love gals with guns! haha!
    Blessings,
    Lorilee

  19. Hi Jayme! Thanks for stopping by my blog this weekend. I came by to tell you that you won my giveaway. Then I listened to your song. And well, I'm still going to give you the prize because you are a gutsy girl. Now I feel like I should somehow double the prize! Email me at jenjen1220atyahoodotcom!

  21. Well well...I've decided to show my face again! I'll have to blog a lot to force this down and off the page....:-D

    Michelle....I don't know for sure how to make them 100% safe, other than to keep them in the house with me...and I don't think my husband would go for that! If you look at my Tour De Coop post, you'll see my coop. The roost box that they stay in at night is pretty secure. I don't think an animal (maybe an ape) could get into it.

    Flat Creek Farm...welcome! Thanks for stopping by the blog!

    QueenBuffness....just click on the 'contact me' or just email me at gardenhoe1962@sbcglobal.net :-)

    FlowerPatchFarmgirl.....:0( no, I didn't go. It was such a beautiful day too. I stayed home and worked. I'm going to a big Antique Flea Market in Illinois this weekend, so I felt it indulgent to go to both! Can't wait to see what you go!

    Jan...I won!? Thanks so much!!!!

  22. The more things change...the more they stay the same!!! This could have happened (and similar things did!) in your parent's tiny living room...

    I remember the one time I was allowed to sleep over at your house, Cindy and I were watching David Bowie on Don Kirschner's Rock Concert (well after midnight). It a song from his Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars tour...and I'm sure the television was cranked. Your mother, with scarf and curlers on her head, emerged from her room with those black handled scissors. She proclaimed, "D****ed sh**house!", in that southern drawl of hers, and promptly hacked the television. Without another word, she went back to bed. The next day, we looked at the scissors and the metal was melted where they had made contact with the live electrical cord!

    Never a dull moment!

  23. I meant...hacked the television cord in two!

    And I finally realized, I don't have to type my name as if I were going to include my URL

  24. Cindy and I were laughing so hard as we were reading your comment! I remember seeing those scissors. You've no idea how I love hearing all of your memories of our crazy household.

    Would love to talk some time. Click on contact me and send me an email if you'd like.

    You'd never know she was raised in South Chicago. What an accent on her. Been in Indiana way too long. I got a wicked coon too. Can I borrow your gun and your bird?

  28. Dear Jayme, Our email often gives us grief so I thought I'd sign in here to alert you... You know I am a HUGE follower and FAN of all you share here. I had to revisit your older posts to find this video. This truly helped me this morning! The monster got my girls last night and I'm about done in. So of course I came out of bloggy retirement to whine about it. And had to mention you!!! I love you lots ~ the new "svelte" gluten free Jayme and the old "white trash n blue pool" Jayme... EVERYTHING you share here is a gift. Thank you. AGAIN.
    xoxo
    Leslie
