THis was from June 21 2007

Well I hear Don say~ I need your help !!!!
Well he has one of our Hummingbirds in his hand....



He said he was on the floor in the shop... Now they have been flying in there almost everyday.. We catch them and take them back outside...

Well this one looked real bad...His little feathers were all ruffled up..He wouldn't open his eyes.. And he was breathing with gasps....Plus he had cobwebs wrapped around his beak..
Don had gotten most of them off...
Though for sure he was going to expire, right in our hands....




But they are so sweet and kind ,just had to see what we could do.... They sure are pretty......

I handed him back to Don, and went inside to get a 3cc syringe so I could see if we can get him to eat...

I had just filled all the feeders today, good can get the sugar water right here on the big ole deck... Fill the syringe up and try to get the little guy to eat but no dice... Wouldn't touch it....
But I can be very persistent... So I kept trying....
Finally ~He started to eat... Must have drank about a good 1cc ....... It took a god 45 minutes..... He started to get perky... But was still feeding and sitting happily in my hand...
He would try his wings every once in a while but not fly ....
That was really a strange feeling...



I yelled to Don to take a look...

Well his feathers got sleek again, He was opening his eyes, and was breathing a whole better....

Right after the photos he took off,





It was a great day here on the farm....

Till next time...

I still can't believe that y'all went to Ohio on purpose. ..that said I have to ride across it this Friday.

... I have been taking photo's of the bike rolling through the miles since 30K
But 110 was the last time ..For TheBeast .. All the other roll overs Just didn't happen at the right places ...
The highest I have had my bike at was 125+ MPH ... It's amazing how the tunnel vision sets ... But never over 135 It can do it ... But ya need the right road and area ..

My Black bike @ 100 was it's last ... As it rolls back to 00000
So now it has only 25000 on it But it should read 125000

Where are ya going Friday that ya have to go into Ohio ???

Michigan....tour of the upper peninsula on the way to Minnesota. Thursday I'm just gonna aimlessly wander North along the border of WVA and KY, then Friday I'll head across Ohio and meet Reddog* in MI. The plan is to end up at CADVR in WI, 3 weeks off work beginning this afternoon @ 3.

p.s. just seen a great idea for your next Valk.

Doing OK, not enjoying the heat/humidity too much.

CroMag (about a week and a half), Notarally, Blooches and Old's Cool Fall if it doesn't interfere with BWDR.

Just waded through the entire report...great job! I really like the way you mix things up with the pics from the ride and life on the farm. What a great place you have! It's been tough for the farmers around here for the last couple of years. Flooding and high water everywhere until late Spring last year...and now stupidly hot and dry. We are down about 16" on rain for the year right now.

Looking forward to the next update and hope to get over to your part of the country this fall. Sure is pretty there.

Thanks for the update LD! You and your storytellin's getting me antsy to get on my I/S and run some of those roads you keep talking about. It's been way too long since the Snake and I have crossed paths, and I think it's getting to be time something was done about that.




BTW - have you ever looked at installing a set of Dial A Jet's on your ride?
