This week started off with a new experience.

My oldest son decided it was time to take one of his cows to the slaughterhouse.

I had never been to one before. There were sure enough cows there. Was told Monday is cow day and Wednesday is hog day.

When I was young, I watched my uncle cut the horns off of a cow. The blood shot out like a strong water hose stream and then slowly start to fall until it stopped. I saw him put a hog in the enormous pot to cook it. But that is all the experience I had around farm animals until my son bought his first calf and I had to bottle feed it a few times. No, it was not the one we took up there Monday.

Two weeks ago, I took part in webinar on writing twitter pitches.

Surprising since then, I have been receiving emails from Pinterest on all kinds of articles about writing. Seems like there is a pin from many on whatever writing you want to do. If I were to read every one of them, I would get nothing else done.

Do you get these pins, too?

Been working on a recent version of one novel. Still need about 24,000 words to get it up to the word count they all want for thrillers.

Seems to me, and others that I have seen commenting on it, that if a story comes to a good conclusion before reaching the magical amount of words it should be okay. But I guess not.

Back at it tomorrow, since we can’t go anywhere.

How are you doing during this time of having to stay in or being very careful around people?

I look forward to reading your comments. 

Until next time,

WOW! The world is going crazy. Toilet paper shortage. Why?

This not a flu that causes you to have the shits.

This mad rush to buy everything whether you need it or not is ridiculous.

 

Before being house bound last Saturday, I get a call from my oldest son.

He asks for help because his truck is stuck in a mud field that just last work was solid ground.

So, I take my truck over to pull him out of it and end up getting stuck too.

His landlord comes along and he pulls me free. Son takes my truck and goes at his in a different direction to try to pull his truck out.  Once again, my truck gets stuck.

After all that, we go to Tractor Supply and I end up buying a 9000-pound pull winch.

By the way, I am starting a pull you out business with my winch. Prices are reasonable.

Anyway, the winch pulled his truck free and then we moved it to his truck parked outside the mud field and he pulled my truck free.  Total time 9:30 to 2:00.

Not what was on my schedule for that day. But what the heck, we were working together.

This week has been staying in the house and only going out once so far to pick up a lunch meal.

We went to a place called Sporty’s at Bass Lake to get a carry out meal. Then parked in front of the old Shore Club and ate lunch while looking at the lake across the street.  There was one fishing boat out there. Too far out to see if they were catching their next meal. LOL.

 

Will have to go to Lowe’s one day this week to get supplies needed to wire up a new 220-volt line before they come next week to put in the new furnace.  Going to be really warm in here after that.

Maybe I will even work on the new novels if the Muse shows up and moves me to write.
