Welcome to This’n’That Thursday, hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs, designed as a catch up day, with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I’ve been having Captcha issues, so I’m starting there. Hoping a tech savvy blogger will pipe up with a fix.
Periodically I get emails or comments saying that it’s difficult to leave comments here. The Captcha plays hard to get. I assume that for every comment or email, there are more people who just give up and go away, so I do appreciate those of you who take the time and press in. Thank you!
I’ve been searching off and on for nearly a year, trying to figure out how to turn off the Captcha function (that secret code thingy when you leave a comment). My WordPress theme has a great spam filter, so it’s not like the Captcha is doing anything but making people angry. I think – I THINK – that I removed it yesterday when I deleted a couple of lines of code from the function.php thingy. So I’m asking if y’all could please, pretty please, let me know? Thank you!
Moving on …
My two Egyptian Fayoumi, Jemima and Gandalf, are being re-homed today. They’ve been laying the cutest little eggs! But they’re talkers, and they’re loud, and I have too many hens. We started with ten chicks and two existing hens. Two were roosters – only two! – and I still have ten chickens. I’m only allowed to have six. So the loud mouthed girls are going away today.
Relax – they’re going to another pet chicken owner. He offered to trade me for white quail. Do you KNOW how tempting that was?!? My Hunny nearly had a coronary when I told him. But he’s paying cash. I have to ask cash for chickens if I don’t want them winding up in someone’s stew pot.
And no, we’re not keeping all eight remaining hens. A month from now a friend is moving from her apartment to a house. Boromir, Gimli and Aragorn will be moving with her. I’ll still have five, which is more than enough.
In our down time, Hunny and I make things. He’s fallen in love with his leather work the last few years, so he spends much of his free time tooling, carving, staining, polishing and stitching. This weekend he was restless and made a ton of stuff. I thought I’d show off his handiwork just a bit. Indulge me, please?
He made this one for me, but I think it’s too masculine and will go into my Etsy shop. 🙁
But this is my favorite – I helped lace the sides.
It’s a family affair.
Tonight is the last night of the giveaway. We’re giving away either Crown Knuckle or Steer Sticks, both favorites of dogs everywhere. Please pop over to the giveaway post and leave a comment? You might make your dog very happy just by leaving a comment!
Until I write again …
