Chickens, PC's and RV's...Oh my

I have managed to slide back in the rhythm of work and winter without too many cranky thoughts. It was even good to get back in the gym yesterday for a strenuous workout.

I have set up a fairly aggressive to do list which should be started today.

The PC notebook I am typing on for the last three years is an HP DV9040 that has been a workhorse for all my computing needs. I do regret upgrading to Vista but alas!...I have a plan.

I have filled my primary drive…yes almost 112 GB. I have ordered a 250 GB and plan to replace the hard drive today or tomorrow and revert back to a nice clean copy of XP Pro.

That should keep me busy for the next day or so. I love setting up a nice fresh PC. My old laptop hopefully will run like a new computer and hopefully faster than this current Vista operating system.

Saturday I am getting together with my friend Ty to construct a Chicken Tractor. 

Hopefully we can bang out this mobile chicken coup in a day….then I’m looking for 6 laying hens. Why you ask?  I don’t know….but I like the idea of having chickens and fresh eggs.

When I came back from St Croix I thought to my self and said, “Self…wouldn’t it be cool to find an old beater motor home and fix it up?”

I have found a cheap motor home on Craig’s List and plan to look at it today.

Call me crazy but I would love to have a small motor home on the island one day. I could sleep at a different beach each night. I think it would be the only motor home on the island.

Okay, you're crazy.

I would love to have some chickens - maybe a few quails too!

Reverting to XP? A smart move, IMO, unless you have a new PC that was designed for it! Vista on an old PC is pure torture.

Make that a two bedroom motor home.

TerryC said...

So.....WHERE were you going to store that "motor home" when you weren't here?

Certainly not in MY back yard!!

No...that would definitely be an airport area storage.

Noticed my duffel was stuffed did ya?

Love ya... mean it.

TerryC said...

Hmmmm, right next to your "island jeep" in the imaginary "airport storage" space.

Riiiight......

That chicken tractor is too cute!! It's about time you started looking for your chickens! It's prime laying time!!!

While you're lookin' keep an eye out for a used enclosed trailer in reasonable condition about 6x12, 6ft+ headroom. Thanks :)

You are the only person I know who has thoughts like "I should own chickens," or "I should buy an old motorhome" and then actually does those things. I have thoughts like, "I should run away to Mexico, change my name and live in a hut on the beach" so I can't go through with my thoughts.

I forgot about your chicken tractor dream.....

Good luck with that.
I think it would fit nicely on your cargo rack on the jeep for those long road trips.

Terri, there is such a thin vale between life and death. Sometimes you just have to go for it while you can.

If you buy me an adjacent motor home I will be your personal chef.
