When you have land, you have weeds and this year we have a bumper crop! We spray, dig and pull weeds every summer but we still seem to have more weeds. This year it’s hounds tongue. Sunday and Monday mornings I spent time on the end of a shovel digging and chopping. I hate hounds tongue–each plant has a gazillion seeds. When the plant goes dormant in the winter, the seeds dry and are extremely sticky. The seeds attach themselves to deer, rabbits, and anything that moves including Emmi and us! I hate hounds tongue!
Yes, we are once again RV-less. We took the motorhome to Billings today, turned it over to its new owners and put the check in the bank. The Cowboy invested countless hours in that motorhome fixing all the “everything works” that didn’t work. We drove 950 miles round trip to get a new/used generator. We discovered the “everything works” inverter was totally fried and installed a new one–inverters that size are very expensive! The Cowboy spent hours troubleshooting the AquaHot system which would not work and ordered countless parts–it works now and works well. We are so fortunate that the Cowboy is handy but his patience was sorely tried! We were happy to deliver it in working order to the excited young couple–they are taking it on a trip this weekend to Cody, WY.
Sage grouse babies in our front yard Monday morning. The mom was in the driveway clucking at all her little chicks. They could fly so maybe the babies will survive.
More thunderstorms and rain last night, cool temperatures and very windy today. The wind made driving the motorhome not so fun early this morning.
Stay tuned as we search for yet another RV–our friends Ralph and Angie said, “you’ve tried everything, what are you going to get now?” Well, we haven’t tried everything and we do know what we don’t want–a R-Pod or a 42 foot motorhome–maybe something in between???
