Good morning to all our friends this morning! Thanks for droppin back in to visit!
As you know we started building a hog trap/pen a few days back on account of the dern pigs rooting up our pasture. We can’t let this continue, so…we have built the pen.
For you folks who aren’t familiar with the damage these guys can do to a place, let me just say that it is considerable. A good size group of hogs can literally ruin a place in just a matter of days!
Wild hogs are really becoming a problem here in Florida. They’ve been around down here basically forever, but they seem to be really becoming more and more troublesome as well. Like I say, they can ruin a place in a flash.
Florida’s wild pig population is second only to Texas. That says a mouthful when you consider how big Texas actually is.
Sows can have two litters a year, and each litter may have up to 12 pigs. This is amazing to me when you think about it. Take Miss Piggy of The Muppets fame. I have no idea how many years we watched that show, and I can’t remember even one time where she wasn’t on the show, due to pregnancy leave?? Do you??
Evidently she is an exception to the rule, huh!
Here’s a couple pictures of a good sized boar hog at the ranch in Yeehaw Junction.
As you can see from our video below, we placed our pen up under an oak hammock. This will give them shade from the summer heat, and actually drop acorns in the pen too. It turned out nice, and the pen should be “just the ticket” in helping us get a handle on our problem here.
Anyway, here’s the video of our finished product.
Our next video is showing Red’s daughter, and our granddaughter Shelby Lynn. Once we videoed the hog pen she decided she needed one with her in it too. Being she has her Papa and Nana wrapped around her finger…she got her a video! LOL!
Also Corey who works with us is 20. I aggravate him all the time about a girlfriend, so I’m now his “agent” if any of you young ladies are interested! He’s a great kid and a hard worker, so if you girls are lookin for a man, he’d be a good un, cause he’s still young enough for you to train! Send in your request…I’ll send you his number!
Now ole Dale on the other hand has decided he too wants to use “Dub’s Dating Services,” but like I told him…there ain’t many out their older than you still kickin around, buddy. He agreed, but put in his application anyway. He’s looking for an independently wealthy woman, with a good sense of humor. Preferably over 80!!
Shoot, after taking a look at his request of what he’s looking for, I may go through his replies very carefully. It seems what he’s looking for just might appeal to ole Dub too! Yee haw!!
Closing out today, let’s take a look at another joke sent in by our friend Roger in Virginia. Roger sends me jokes all the time, so this morning I’d like to ask Roger a question…Hey man…ya gotta job?? LOL!
Today’s joke is about…The Perfect Man! I felt this goes good with Corey and Dale in their quest for…a woman! Check out the joke and it just might give you some pointers into a… “woman’s mind!”
The Perfect Man!
A man walks out to the street and catches a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, ‘Perfect timing. You’re just like Frank.’
Cabbie: ‘Frank Feldman. He’s a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happened like that to Frank Feldman every single time.’
Passenger: ‘There are always a few clouds over everybody.’
Cabbie: ‘Not Frank Feldman. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy.’
Passenger: ‘Sounds like he was something really special.’
Cabbie: ‘There’s more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody’s birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Frank Feldman could do everything right.’
Passenger: ‘Wow, some guy then.’
Cabbie: ‘He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Frank, he never made a mistake. And he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too – He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Frank Feldman.’
Passenger: ‘An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?’
Cabbie: ‘Well, I never actually met Frank. He died and I married his widow.’
You guys have a great day! God Bless you and yours, and Deb says once more… “Keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart!
Dub and Deb
