followup on roostering

roostering went much better than expected.  at 5 am i snuck in stealthyly,   all 16 chickens were asleep on their roosts. they did not move those that awoke just stared   no wonder its so easy for the varmits to come in and get them.   it was so easy.   i slowly with my fireplace gloves on reached and grabbed the first one then  placed it into the carrying cage.   i went back after the second one.   had to move several of the hens  out of the way  but easily grabbed him and placed him in the cage.  they now have a new home with some one that probably doesnt know about having more than one rooster.
red the head rooster was happy all day     he had all 13 hens to himself     the hens were happy since they did not have to watch out for 3 roosters anymore.

finished my second section of the barn    hopefully the roof wont leak now   next section has a sagging roof but at least it doesnt leak like the others did    roofers should make a  lot of money but im sure they dont    its so dam hot working up there    used a spot light to start at 4am and could only work until 9am    think ill take a roof break for a few weeks now

my next project is moving two of my 2500 rainwater tanks that are not where they need to be
when i bought them i left them where they were dumped off the truck    i connected them with water hoses so i could use them     now i will  have to pump the water out of them     then i need to make a bed to place them on so that it is level and smooth    i recycled the dirt out of the barn that i removed and replaced with river rock
the barn dirt is now like sand so no rocks etc can puncture the tanks when they get full of rainwater   when in place will extend fence around the tanks to protect them from trucks lawn mowers falling rock bars etc

well at work this is going to be a "be nice day"     called this because i need to work to be nice as i did not get enough sleep last night   when in practice in past i would be up all night delivering a baby or up all night with a er pt or hospital patient then had to go to work the next day     had to put myself in a be nice day mood

was in a deep sleep last night at 100am was staying in a motel traveling across country with friends    while sitting in the lobby of our hotel i thought i saw our good friend  from medical school wife walking by     she has a distinct voice   when i reached to tap her on the shoulder my wife  jumped up in bed and yelled it got me it got me the scorpion got me     well so much for my dream     i was up in bed suddenly turned the light on  she was jumping yelling   she had two large whelps on her chest     gave her benadryl for the reaction   then tracked down the varmit    it wasnt a scorpion    it was a wasp that was now trapped in our bedside lamp
i used an old magazine to finish him off  
she went back to sleep thanks to the benadryl but now i was wide awake      read some of my book then fell a sleep    
so today is a "be nice day" at work
