Rough weekend, But Rollo made it!

this was one of those weekends..
it was cold, rainy, windy, wet... just crappy weather.. I'm so sick of the mud...  I'm ok with the cold as long as the arctic winds aren't blowing with it...  sheesh...
well, I refused to fix fences this weekend.. and my dear Dad came to help.... but, I cleaned out the chicken coop and swept and got things situated around the house... then about 5p.m.  I hear a 4-wheeler come zooming up to the feed barn, get a bag of feed and stop at the gate to the yard..  It was my cowboy.. he needed help getting a cow...
let me explain that.. we had so much fence down from all the rain and wind that trees knocked down bordering fences and cows were out in the national forest....  that don't make me a happy camper..
Look at the mud ruts
well..  I get way out in the left corner of our property.. and it's all cedar trees...  and My Father, Cowboy and I are chasing this stupid cow on foot.. trying to get her to go through the darn gate... Finally  we pushed her through at the river crossing...
Then that night, I decided I wanted Mexican food.. and off to the mexican restaurant we went.. to where I ate the HOTTEST Camarones al la Diabla I have ever eaten in my life....
It was seriously almost too hot for me to eat... It tasted awesome though... and it was a slow burn... my whole face was red and smoke was about coming out of my ears... It's rare that I can find something too hot like that for me :)  I was happy about it...
The next day we woke up and went to church.. then I wanted to just get in the Vette and drive in some direction somewhere.....  but, that didn't happen.. there was chores to be done... so we gave about 10 bales of hay to the cows, 5 to the horses and 5 to the broodmares out in the back..
what mud is around this place... the pastures are muddy sloppy messes.... the Arena is like a foot and a half of mud... can't get the tractor in there to work the dirt.. nothing...  I'll stop griping about the mud... it could be worse.. it could be snow..... just saying....

So, My puppy made it :)
Rollo and Trigger

Rollo the Kitchen Helper
Rollo is a happy puppy.. he's figured out to hang out in the kitchen and give me puppy eyes to get scraps from cooking.. :)
He's gonna be in heaven today when I go home and make jerky.  I made potato chips and zucchini chips yesterday.. he wasn't to fond of the zucchini.. but, Maya love fresh vegetables...  and Zeus, not so much..   But they like them after they have been dehydrated..

I'm going to gripe one more time about Medicare... we haven't gotten any payments from them in a few weeks.. and we were figuring since they are always behind... and Christmas.. and all that crap.. so
Saturday night.. I get a email from them..

been included in the list

really.. that's all the letter said... so Monday.. we are trying to figure out what was going on.. and what is it? OHHHHHHHH it's some sort of Holiday.... freaking seriously...  so Tuesday.. My assistant gets through to them after 45 minutes of automated b.s..... to find out.. that they finally submitted my EFT paper.. from December 16, 2011.... they did it on December 23, 2013.......  after which my original local bank was bought out by a chain and they changed all the routing numbers, etc.. I got pissed at the bank and went with a big bank since they don't do crap like that to you.....  So after figuring that mess out.. we had to send off a 3 page letter with bank crap attached.. and wait who knows how long until we get paid... to which they said they didn't know how long it was going to take and weren't going to send paper checks in the mail anymore.....
*insert happy thoughts about obamacare and medicare*
In other news... a few other doctors in the town aren't accepting Medicare anymore... imagine that...

I'm ready for spring.. and flowers and birds chirping in the mornings... and the warm sun...

I'm really praying for decent weather next weekend for the Chili cook off...
