Chickens

I spent the last few days trying to program a automatic timer that opens and closes the door of my neighbors chicken coop. It works perfectly when I’m there, but then when it is suppose to trigger it does not work.

Out of sight out of mind is my motto, but for some reason I haven’t been able to rest properly at night knowing that the chickens might be in harms way (or be able to harm you 😉).

When I was programming the device, the chickens where totally trying to figure out what I was doing to their roost. The way they look at you- its like they are trying to tell you “if I was 5 foot taller I would eat you”.

Out of the loop

On my #LENT2019 social media sabattical I’m using the New Yorker to stay in the loop

It’s amazing how out of the loop I’ve become after just ten days of being off social media. #LENT2019

Going out to regular places and spending 10 minutes telling everyone what I have been up to. And then 10 minutes talking about what they have been up to.

In the past it was – “oh hey, hi!” (hug&kisses) and straight into deep conversation.

All I can say is I’m glad I did not give up beer again this year.

33 days to go… at least I have The New Yorker delivered to keep me droned out…
