Good day.

Got everything I hoped to do done.

And scored some free firewood – 2 or 3 years from now when it has a chance to dry out.


There was a lot more cut substantial wood than I expected. I keep my use of juniper to a healthy minimum, but Landlady’s stovepipe is shorter and double-walled and burns a lot hotter. It never even soots up. So it’s safer to use juniper in her stove.

Started the well pump yesterday evening, and checked the tank on the way home…


Nice and full now. Don’t like to let it get too far from full, because you never know when the pump or something else will crap out again, and it’s good to have some lead time. Takes me a long time to empty that tank – unless I get help from gravity.

Then I went home and made milord’s breakfast…


Boiled chicken and rice can’t be a very exciting meal for a dog, but he has gotten used to it – he even eats the rice now. He doesn’t get it all the time because I don’t have access to big bags of Wally World frozen chicken all the time. But I do what I can, and last summer’s pancreatitis hasn’t flared up again so far.

  1. I’m glad you’re having good days after the long wet winter! Could TB’s chicken and rice be done with canned chicken when you don’t have the frozen stuff?

  2. Joel says:

    The point is to cut out all salt, and the canned chicken is packed with salt. I could rinse the hell out of it, but then there’s the price. Canned chicken is too damned expensive to feed to a dog while there’s any alternative. 🙂

    I was curious about the ten pound bags of thighs and legs for 60 cents a pound. You would have to pick the meat off the bones….

To the stake with the heretic!
