I was thinking, all you need to do now is carry a two foot length of hose and you will have him on the run.

I like this jacket better: Marmot PreCip Rain Jacket - Women's - Free Shipping at REI.com

I was thinking of just carrying the "nozzle." Pics, I promise, tomorrow. Big Handsome arrived for a visit (10 days) today, and I got distracted. Big Handsome is my most favorite Saint Bernard I ever fostered and placed. He was very intrigued by the girls...all 175 lb of him bounced around the yard after the girls (who are not afraid of him--who could be afraid of Big Handsome). Rocky, on the other hand, was not impressed! Ha-Ha Rocky--I have more tricks in store for you!

Poor Rocky. He is having a hard time finding out that he is not King of the Roost.

It should be interesting having Big Handsome (who was dumped on our rescue group by s/one in Hollywood, CA who now lives in ON, I could name names, without any funds, and needing $3500 of knee surgery--which he had 2+ years ago) here for 10 days. Might knock Rocky off his throne yet!

So I can't find the charger for the batteries--looked high and low...hmmm...think it is at the farm.

For the last two days, I can't get the girls to go to bed until 8:30. They were going to bed around 7. The problem, if I go out on the deck when they are making their way to the barn (which is their coop), they turn around and come running to see if there are more treats. This trek takes about 45 minutes if not interrupted. Little brats and Harriet and Myrtle lead the pack. Bring some food out, you say? That doesn't work if any of them are already roosting--they don't stay inside, they go outside. So I have 1/3 of the in, 1/3 of them out, and 1/3 running back to the house ...my bad tossing "treats" off the deck. I start trying to get them to the coop/barn at 7:30--I wanted to head out to the farm...I finally tucked Myrtle under my arm and went back out to the barn--the 4 others followed and Rocky scolded me the whole time, but did not try to attack me. Probably helped I had my 175 lb "body" guard in the form of one of the most handsome Saint Bernards ever. Who knew having chickens could be so much FUN! Or, that I needed to add a metal garbage can to my kitchen-dining area decor so I could store chicken feed (don't want to invite wildlife or rodents). Maybe I should spray-paint it purple so it won't be so conspicuous...

A purple trash can would make it easier for the Mothership to home in on...
