I don't scream at my horse, and knock on wood, she doesn't kick me either.

I thought this was too funny.

    Thanks so much my dear friend for your support during this harrowing time in our world. All I can hope and pray is that good prevails over evil! emoticon

    We did enjoy the quiet after a while.....I didn't miss my phone and internet as much after the second day as I did right at first! We were just way out in the woods there at a state park. The good thing about it is that we didn't have to drive our huge RV through Memphis on I-30, we were able to bypass it by going north of the city and then, reconnecting with 30 beyond Memphis. We are now in Northern Virginia. I love Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley, it is the most beautiful, pastoral place I have ever seen! emoticon

    Yes! Justin, who put in our driveway, pulled our tractor out with his backhoe while he was waiting for the truckloads of gravel to arrive! We are so grateful to him! I feel much better about leaving now that the tractor is in the shed and not setting out in the elements! We got some more of the pasture mowed today, nearly finished but not quite. My favorite mower (the Troy-Bilt) quit mowing, but its running. Maybe the belt that runs the blade broke? Hubby will check it out.

    Leaving Sunday on our trip,our neighbor will watch our place, he used to own the land here so he and his dogs watch it like a hawk! He makes the rounds a few times a day with his rifle! emoticon

    Yes, Chris! We are fine. It rained all night and all morning today! Don't know when we'll get out of here, but that is a small problem when you consider all of the poor people who are flooded out of their homes. We had a campout scheduled with our Good Sams group starting Sunday but we cancelled it today because no one can get their RV's out! Ground too soft.

    Glad to here that you are OK, and safe at home with all the animals. We also have grass about that tall in the side pasture that we usually keep mowed! We were able to get the biggest part of the lawn mowed before this last inundation of rain! I missed Bible Study Wednesday night and we missed our weekly dinner out on Thursday. We are well stocked with food, believe me! When you live as far out as we do, it is a good idea!

    How are you doing? We are having flooding rains that won't stop! Thank God our house is on a hill so no chance that we will flood, but our driveway has been unimproved (except where it comes directly off the road, we had gravel and a culvert put in) Our driveway is long and goes downhill to the road. Right at the bottom, we have water that has collected from the hills on our property, softening the sand to bottomless! Therefore, we can't drive on it as we will sink. So, we have been staying home since Tuesday when Hubby nearly buried the truck in the driveway! You know men have to challenge everything. The day before, he buried the tractor up to the frame in the field, after me cautioning him that it was probably too soft to mow and we didn't want to bury the tractor. So, the tractor is sitting out in the field, buried up to the frame and out in the weather instead of being in its shed. I have no idea when we will be able to rescue it, the ground is too soft to do anything and it is raining again, right now!

    I thank GOD that we are warm and dry in our house. We had a campout scheduled with our Good Sams group starting this Sunday, but since it is to rain till Saturday, we won't be able to get our 7 ton RV out of the drive! It is currently safe and sitting on its pad that we had made for it, with road base that is unaffected by the rain. We will have to get our driveway improved when things dry up!

    How is it going for you? emoticon
