THE GYPSY LIFE JOURNAL RANCH SITTERS ROLLED IN TODAY
Had ourselves a mighty busy morning with laundry to do, windows to be cleaned, tanks looked after, batteries and tires checked, things packed up and stowed away.
Again, mixed emotions about moving out on Sunday. We always grow so attached to Ranch dogs Gleeson and Pearce every time we come and it’s always sad for us saying goodbye. They have become so accustomed to sleeping in our rig every night and I am going to miss seeing those two big fur balls stretched out on our floor. Pheebs is especially going to miss all the kibitzing with her best Pal of ever, Gleeson.

We still have a few people emailing in now and again with problems accessing our site. All emails have one thing in common in that all folks have Comcast as an ISP. Definitely a Comcast problem but Comcast will not admit it. If readers go to another blog site’s side bar and click on our site it might work. You can find us on JANNA & MIKE'S blog for example…left side. Or, IVAN'S blog, right side.
SAY, DID I TELL YOU HOW COLD IT WAS FOR OUR CAMPFIRE WITH AUNT JEAN A COUPLE NIGHTS AGO……..
How nice it is these days to see something that says, Made In The USA. Readers will remember all the trouble we had a couple months ago with a Micky Mouse tripod setup we were trying to use with our satellite dish. A couple of folks emailed us suggesting we have a look at a site called TV4RV.COM & after doing so we ordered their HG 102 heavy duty tripod. Fed Ex dropped it off last week and today I decided to to unpack and set it up.
The minute I slid it out of the box I knew we had a good product. Very carefully wrapped & how nice to see steel construction instead of plastic. And, there on the top….Made In USA. This is the quality tripod we should have had right from the beginning. Similar type of surveyor's tripod we originally had with our Hughesnet satellite system 5 years ago but this one is designed better.
Because the tripod was basically familiar to me it didn’t take long to set up but I still had myself a little confusement over the mast assembly. The confusemet wasn’t in the assembly, it was in my head. Took me a bit but I did get it set up just fine and our dish is now happily & securely mounted atop our HG-102 heavy duty tripod. Kelly did call with a few assembly questions and company owner George Guevin was prompt in getting right back to her with the correct answers. Two thumbs up for this quality tripod and company:))
Terry, Martha, & Charlie the Beagle from GYPSY LIFE JOURNAL rolled into the Ranch yard shortly after 1 this afternoon. They had just spent a couple bird filled nights down at the Whitewater Draw about a mile south of the Ranch. They hardly had time to set up before the Pheebs was in their Motorhome making herself at home on their couch. That darn dog just has no shame.
I generally do the afternoon chores every day about 4:30. Like to be consistent and keep the chickens on schedule:)) Terry & Martha walked around with me as we rolled up our sleeves for the arduous task at hand. Lock the gate, turn off a couple water valves, plug in the chicken light, feed the chickens & check for eggs. Feed Gleeson & Pearce. Slip into the house and tell Charlie what a great cat he is while petting him to the purring point. Sneak him a little extra snack. Walk the perimeter of the property stopping to schmooze with the donkeys and sometimes slip them a carrot snack or a small flake of hay. They have plenty of grazing land to keep their tummies full.
And, that pretty much sums up the heavy duty afternoon chores. Same thing in the morning with a few changes. Usually have to break surface ice on water barrels for the dogs, thaw the chickens out, and rub the donkey’s tummies till they burp.
New Blog Followers DENICE AND DENNIS have joined the Bunch just in time for our departure from the Sulphur Springs Valley in a couple days. Welcome aboard folks:))
