To Madras, To Madras
Had a great visit! This is the chicken coop my brother built, has 3 hens and 1 rooster, the hens quit laying, don't know why.
Got the RV winterized, 'blew' out the water lines. Had a charger on the battery for over 24 hours and it started, so was not an alternator problem, thank heavens, just low battery, new battery, but guess they don't stay charged if just sitting! Which i did not know. Learned it with my car tho, as it was deader than a doornail after sitting at home for 7 months :) Suppose all batteries are the same, and Bonnie sat there since July. She was not happy, just have to get the tire fixed now. Brother is going to move the RV over to where he works on the log truck and take off the tire and take it to get fixed or replaced. Nice brother!!!
Brother Jerry also has two horses being boarded at his place, Arabian stallions, they are rather small horses. Makes his mare crazy to have them about, she is tearing all over her separate pasture.
We also viewed a dvd that a cousin made for us that had Mom & Dad on it from 1986 and 1991. They are both gone now for over 5 years, which seems impossible in itself. It was SO good to see them and hear their voices. We laughed and cried. Jerry said it doesn't get any better than that. Why, oh why, did we not do that ourselves through the years. Do the video thing. You so take it for granted we will all be together always and we are in an ethereal way. BUT it was so GOOD to see them
Take Care and God Bless All!!!!
