Feeling better

Went in to the doc yesterday and the did some tests and decided what ever was ailing me wasn’t serious, just my gut getting straightened back out and not much they could do,,, I was feeling woozy, so she sent some nose spray home and told me to take sudifed as the wooziness was probably from the ear not getting drained out causing a block in me ear, causing the wooziness… took some spay and some pills last night, went to bed, woke up about 1 and was trying to scratch myself to death from itching, apparently  some of the meds caused a reaction, so i got up and took a steroid I keep on hand for when I do break out in a rash… finally quit itching and slept soundly for the first time in a long time… felt better this morning but could feel the itch coming back so took another pill for it and as the day has been going on I just keep feeling better… not sure why I break out and itch like this, have looked into it but have never found a reason for certain, allergic to something, but not sure what… guess I am just a tender little flower!

The new fuel tank came in so I ran down to Punkin Center and picked it up, ate at the Bull Creek and visited with some neighbors, best I could for not hearing worth a dang… fueled up Teddy and paid my bill at CBH… dang fuel sure eats up a lot of my money… should go to driving my team I guess… as ancy as they act when I feed, they ain’t getting as much work as they need… I wonder if it is possible to have a team that walks on a loose line and trots on a loose line when I want them too….

Up in the 40’s yesterday and today and supposed to stay that way for a spell. I’ll take it! Tate and Chance are supposed to head east to pick up a new used pickup for Tate. Older but sounds like it’s in good shape and the price is right… hopefully Chance and a buddy can get the old fuel tank off and the new one installed this weekend on the tractor… got two more loads of hay to come in and need that tractor for it to unload them… if I’d just win the lottery I could afford to have a better tractor!

  1. I get that wooziness and suchlike at this time of year most years. The weather doesn’t help. I been fighting some stomach thing too.

    Hey, I have a question, where do you buy lacing punches? the cheap ones I got from tandy arent so hot, and the Blanchard vergez ones cost more than my first car. Is there a good quality compromise, or do you do everything by hand or machine with no ‘Gang” style punches?

    1. Og, I get stuff like that from Weavers… not sure if you need a tax number to purchase from them… if you do and you find something you’d like, let me know the item or items and we can run it thru’ my account.. they have the better quality and the cheaper… I never use a tool that makes more than one hole at a time, but I can see where it would be handy for lacing… anything I do I either hand sew with artificial sinew or use my sewing machine.. i don’t lace… hope this helps! You should be able to find them online… Weaver Leather, I get their catalog once a year… but then I order quite a bit from them… also, Sheridan Leather company out of Sheridan Wyo is a good source.. they have used tools too that are good and quite a bit cheaper… not sure if they are online but I can get you a,phone number… good folks, always treated me good…

  2. Great! Yeah, they are online. The lacing punches are nice because you can do some simple stitching without a stitching horse, but I suppose I ought to just break down and make one, that way I can use an awl and thread the way you’re supposed to. Thanks for the tip!

    1. Your welcome…. you can make a simple one that fits in a vise or one with a tee on the bottom you set on with the clamp up thru’ your knees and you just squeeze it with your knees to hold it tight, if i remember right..

  3. Sometimes your inner ear doesn’t drain an infection because your Eustachian tube is clogged. One of my best buds is a chiropractor, and they can open that puppy up. They yank on your earlobe at a certain angle (You’ll hear a pop if they did it right and it isn’t totally plugged) and massage the area where it finally opens up and dumps in your lower throat. When it’s really plugged up, sometimes they have to repeat the procedure for several days. He’s told me about people that were plugged for a long time and got sick from all the crap that was dumped into their throat. I can do it to myself if necessary – once you’ve had it done you can tell when you’ve got the correct angle to yank on the earlobe. And he really gives it a pull – it hurts a bit, but it sure works.
