Helped my friend sort his bison a few weeks ago. You'll never get the wild outta those animals,that was downright dangerous sorting to say the least. I've seen horseflies but never saw a gatefly before. The fn buffalo dug his horns in a 6 ft solid wooden gate and was running down the alleyway with the gate stuck to his horns,couldn't even see the buffalo just the gate going.

There is a zoo at Pawtucket Rhode Island that , when I was a youngster had a Bison there , in a fenced in "corral " . I was about 10 or 11. The thing charged at me , "full bore" , while I was standing there looking at it , no harassment , at all. It bounced off the triple thick chain link fence , turned around , shook itself off , and did it again . I ran away , and went to the "duck pond" . Less angry beasts there :) I remember going to another zoo near Quebec City Canada , when I was about 12 . The Rhinoceros there , charged at me too...lol what is it about me ? Rhino's don't like me :( I never did anything , but look at them :( ; lol :( Those things have big horns indeed , I wouldn't want to get poked in the butt by one of those , at all ...indeed :( :(




lol

With a warm day here Iíd better get up the shed early or I wonít get anything done. It was too hot up there yesterday to work.

I left my darn mobile on the checkout counter at a hardware store yesterday. Realised some time later, went back and theyíd put it aside for me. Should have got a red case, not black as my poor eyes can't see black on black. Sigh....getting old~ I ordered a phone case from China the other day so I can have it secure even when Iím on the tractor or mower, that leaves my hands free when in town too. Itís about time, as Iíve lost it 3 times now and might be pushing my luck relying on arthritic hands to keep it secure any longer.

Speaking of seeing, I have an appointment at the optometristís this arvo for an upgrade to the lens in my glasses. Maybe I'll be able to see my phone after that?

I also bought a new deep cycle battery for my boat, to run the trolling motor. Gonna ditch the marine battery and run 2 deep cycle. To do that I need to pull the other battery from the bow and mount the two together at the stern behind the seat which means running cable under the deck to the trolling motor up the front. Iíll fit ďAndersonĒ connectors so I can take the motor off for security. I had too much weight up the front as it was! Gotta get ready for Mallacoota trips...if only the wind would stop blowing....sigh.

Been talking to Milo these last few days and heís a bit unhappy that heís wrenched his shoulder and is in a heap of pain. Heís got a problem with one hand too.

Good vibes needed there friends please.

Good vibes and prayers headed Milos way. I was feeling like crap the last few days,must of picked up Mara's stomach flu. Feel much better today. You never know how sick you were til you start feeling better. Going to put a new 500 watt heater in one of my cattle fountains today,it's going to be in the 40's today so a good day to do it.

We need to introduce bison in Oz. there used to be 65 million running around the country here but they got hunted down to near extinction. I think there are now about 1 million now,500,000 in the wild and 500,000 in captivity. So the guy told me who bought my friends bison.

My Bosch battery drill died on me yesterday just when I really needed it! I reckon itís only 18 months old and it cost something like $300. I paid that thinking I might get a drill that lasted a bit longer, but price is no guarantee of quality it seems. I was in town getting new lens in my glasses and afterwards picked up a Makita drill with a 3 year warranty for a couple of hundred dollars. It will be the batteries that go before the warranty ends and they will be half the price of the drill so they get you either way. Bloody planned obsolescence!

I donít do a lot of work with a drill but you have to have one, so what do you do?

Iím only able to work outside until lunchtime these days and then come in in a lather of sweat and totally buggered! Sign of things to come.

Big year! New tractor AND a new battery drill all within a few months...Grin~

I would have loved to see that one. I watched a video way back of a guy getting way too close to one in S.D. Filming it and the Bison hit him once with his horns sending him flying up a tree. Some people think there tamed.

It is dangerous here too. Think more people get hurt here thinking they can photo shoot them too close or feed them. I used to watch lots of people get out of their cars in YellowStone to either feed or take pictures of bears on the road.

There's been a slight thundery change with a small amount of rain so itís more comfortable now thankfully.

Chuckle...Gael gave me heaps before because I took the rubbish up the road for collection in the tractor bucket because thereís firewood in the yard trailer I usually use.

I canít help it, I havenít driven it for days now....Grin~

Our good mate Milo (Milod) sent me a couple of photos of himself firstly at an award night for his coverage of local rodeoís and support of same over many years. I asked him if I could share them with you and he agreed. I thought you would be interested.

The second one is an award night honouring our mate for his sensitive handling and reporting of veterans stories. We all know our mate Milo is a straight shooter and quite rightly he has been recognised for giving that service.
