An hour in the pumpkin patch

Right before Halloween, I wanted to head down to Uncle Warren’s pumpkin patch (AKA, the BNSF Southern Transcon) to catch some action. Let’s just say I was not disappointed.

Well, there’ll be something on the ballot

In Kansas, the odd-numbered year elections are generally for city commission/council and local school board elections. Since I live in a rural precinct, I have no city elections on my ballot, and the school board positions are low-key campaigns, if there’s even a contested seat.

Well, now I know there’s something on the ballot this year.

Just one first world problem after another

First, there was the deer incident that totaled my Sentra. I got enough from the insurance claim for a decent down payment on a new Subaru Impreza

Next, our dog was attacked by the neighbor’s dog. He’s doing well two weeks after surgery.

Dog update

After less than a week, Eddie’s bandages came off. He goes back to the Topeka vet one last time to remove the stitches. We’ll probably do that this coming Saturday. At some point in the near future, we’ll take him to his regular vet so he know what’s going on.

Doggie issues

Last Saturday, the family dog, Eddie, welcomed our neighbors home from their vacation.

Eddie likes our neighbors; our neighbors like Eddie. Our neighbor’s dog doesn’t like Eddie. She considers him to be a rat to be killed. Although Eddie tries to avoid her, and we try not to have both dogs out at the same time, Eddie didn’t see her coming until she poked a hole in his throat.

A New Car!

As I previously mentioned, I had an incident with a deer out on US 24 last week that totaled my 2013 Sentra. After having the insurance payout confirmed, it was time to get a car.
