Monday

Slurp soup. Rain, snow, three inches of sloosh. Gusty winds, yeah March came in like a lion.

Combing cashmere is going full swing. Willow and I went in for two hours yesterday just to comb bucklings on the hill. We combed six. The rest were wild! There were locked in a pen with us so we could easily catch them, and if we weren't combing them, they were wrestling on top of the lean to. Or making pests of themselves.

C (Boy who lived in the Tree) came in today and combed a couple of does. I combed Lillemore, Piper's Mom/ She was a nice comb. She makes these really funny faces when you give her a treat. She stretches her head up and wiggles her tongue at you. LOL

The horses were idiots and I called Maya a brat face afterwards when she was trying to make up. Sometimes those mares get away with murder. Dangerous.

Nice and cozy warm in the house.

My muscles just keep getting more sore-I was hoping they would stop and I would get used to the work, but I guess I'm getting old...

Edit note: I had to enable moderation since I can't delete comments(!?!?!?why?!?!?) and I am getting spammed from China, most likely because I googled something about Tibet a few weeks ago. So if your comment takes awhile to appear, my bad....

I am putting Tibet in the label just to cause more aggravations! haha!

Feel free to delete this comment without posting it - it's just a couple of suggestions anyway. :)

Keep comment moderation on for about two weeks, and then quietly (without announcing it on the blog) turn it off again. Chances are that will end the comment spam - that's how I've handled it before and it usually works for a long time before a different spambot gets hold of your URL.

For deleting comments - not sure why you can't, but check to make sure you're actually logged in to your Google account when you're looking at your blog. You'd be surprised how easy it is to forget (until you go to do something and Blogger won't let you.)

Good luck!

Yeah Tonia, I am ready for some 90's! To warm my old bones in the sun!

Dave, I am posting your comment since it is helpful.

Usually there is a trashcan icon to delete the comment, and I have tried it through settings ,edit posts, etc-made sure java and js are enabled (usually I run with them off and that mucks up the works sometimes) still NADA. I even tried highlighting and deleting and no go.

Oops as I am typing this, there are the trash can icons next to your comments...Hmmmm maybe they load last on the page and I don't wait long enough....

cheers!

I just checked the offending post and the icon loaded promptly so I deleted the comment...it was either a quirk with blogger or something spacey on my part...wish I knew which, LOL getting senile in my old age, as well....
