RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. The sun is shinning and it was a cool 53* this morning. Izzie is in pain. Don't know what is going on but he is walking with his back arched and his tail down. I is not able to climb the steps to get to his litter box and food so it will have to brought down. Hobo is going to be a problem as she loves kitty food and Peaches will love to go through the kitty litter in the box. I will cut grass today as it is about knee deep. Couldn't cut it yesterday because the lawn people put out fertilizer and weed killer, had to wait 24 hours before bringing out the lawn mower. I worked on the keyless entry system for the motorhome yesterday and couldn't find anything wrong. The problem was you could unlock the door with the keypad but you couldn't lock it using the keypad. When I put it back together it started working. Ii fixed it but don't know what I did. The girls are fine this morning as they look forward to another day. I just wish we could know what is bothering Izzie. Tomatoes, yes tomatoes. Our neighbor plants tomatoes every year and sells them. They are the best you can find anywhere. So anyone who lives in the area come around about the end of June and get all you want. He charges by the pound and each year it varies according to how much he has to put out to produce them. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is raining here in the Deep South this morning. WE had a great long weekend with my son Scott. Modoc is such a nice Corps of Engineer Campground. I learned Old Fella's long time friend Gerald and Bonnie Langford have been unable to camp for a while as Bonnie has suffered a stroke. She is pretty much bed ridden with Gerald looking after her. They told me stories about Old Fella and how they would feed him on their trips to Modoc. Bonnie would prepare breakfast for him each morning and they would see Fella coming down the road to their campsite when the scent of frying beacon would fill the air. For lunch or supper they would always cook some chicken for him. Gerald and Bonnie always kept in touch when they were in the area. I knew something was wrong when I hadn't heard or seen them in a while. We brought home ants from Modoc for the first time. When I was packing up to leave ants were crawling up the water hose. Gary sorry about your accident. I have had my share in the past three years, all fender benders, but still cost money to repair. I am so proud of the Old Fella organization. They are really doing a great job with finding home for the strays of Burke County. Being able to send puppies and dogs along with cats to Massachusetts is such a blessing. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Beautiful morning at the lake. It was 90 degrees here yesterday. The girls enjoyed a swim, but not going at it like they use to. Peaches is really slowing down, but still has that spirit of play. Reminds me of a person I once knew who was 70 years old on a skate board. It didn't end too well with some broken bones and a lot of skin missing. I hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoying the weekend.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. We are at Modoc and enjoying the weather. The girls are having a great time playing in the water. I can imagine Old Fella roaming the campground looking for a friend with food. It doesn't seem like ten years have passed since we rescued him.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. We are about to leave for Modoc Campground where Old Fella lived as a stray for five years. It is hard to believe it has been ten years since his rescue and this thread began. So much has happened over the years that keeps his legacy alive. I need to get moving so we can leave and make a quick stop at the grocery store for things we forgot to buy. Here is wishing you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Gary you will figure out how to keep the fur babies out from under your feet while you drive the motorhome. It helps when you have someone with you to help keep order among the pack. Sue does a great job in keeping things calm and quiet. Talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Have a great trip, Richard. I'm taking the dogs this weekend down to Delaware for camping in the motorhome. This is Hannah's first trip. I took them for a ride for a half hour this morning. Shadow, as usual, stayed quiet on the couch, but Hannah didn't seem interested in the couch and alternated between whining and laying on the floor. I have a soft-sided crate (XL size) in the RV that Hannah can fit in, although it is a little small for a dog of her size, and she doesn't like it. I used it for the short trip to block access to the driver's seat (and me, who she would surely try to jump on). I left it open, but she didn't go in. Although I can get her inside, she won't lay still. She can turn around inside the crate. Hannah is about 74 pounds, but I can't fit a giant crate into the RV. Lily used to lay in the crate or on the couch, Dash stayed on the couch, Molly liked the crate or laid under the dinette. She was about the same weight as Hannah, maybe a tad shorter. The trip to Delaware will take about 2 1 /2 hours. Should I just leave her loose and hope she will settle down, or should I crate her, even if she isn't very comfortable, and may try to get out? WE bought a baby gate that blocks the fur babies from getting under my feet while I am driving. Hobo and Peaches were bad at first about wanting to climb into the drivers seat. Using the baby gate to block off access to the front has solved the problem. Now Hobo lies on her bed next to the baby gate while Peaches goes to the bedroom and lies down by the bed. Suzie takes the couch.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning, even if I am late, It has been a busy morning as I pack the motorhome for our weekend trip. We leave in the morning for Modoc. Our son Scott will join us there. It will be the first time he has camped with us. Looking forward to seeing him and the new 5th wheel. Since he gave up racing he will have more time for family. Over the years Scott built a name for himself across the Nation with his Rabbit truck. Look him up on facebook. The girls are fine, well fed, fat and sassy. Susie was so full of her self this morning when she came in from the yard. She was jumping on the bed woofing and rolling getting some play time in before we went to the kitchen. She is so full of energy to be ten years old. Sue has gone to the grocery store to buy food for our trip. We will be doing a lot of cooking outside on this trip. Oaky I need to get moving and fix me something to eat for lunch. Here's wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure t tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It looks as if the cold weather has finally become a thing of the past. We are having day time temps in the 80's. The nights are cool in the upper 50's, but that is okay. I went to the Grocery store last night to buy some things we needed and wanted. I wanted to buy some blue berries but there wasn't any. I was told there has been too much rain and the Blue Berry crop has suffered and now they are in short supply. I am trying to decide what I need to do today, cut grass, not cut grass pull the motorhome up next to the house to start loading for our trip to Modoc. It's only a short trip of sixty miles and we will be gone for only four days, so what's the hurry to load it? I haven't changed the oil on the lawn mower yet and we are well into the grass cutting season. My priorities are getting all screwed up. The stray Blue Heeler mix found a home with the people who adopted its mate. So they will stay together, that's nice. I believe the other dog is one of her puppies who is now an adult. So mother and daughter get to spend the rest of their days with each other like Mama and Hobo. Hobo is such a sweet girl, so gentle and shy. She is still timid around strange people until she gets to know them, but she mixes well with other animals. She loves cats, Its no wonder because she spent much of her life around forty cats and kittens. With some help from friends we have figured a way to repair the vent windows on the 73 Lincoln. Since I have had the Lincoln the vent windows have been a problem. By removing the arm from the regulator that works the vent glass, the main window will still go up and down while the vent window stays stationary. We have been having a rash of breakins lately all around us. So a watch was set up with all the neighbors within a fifteen mile radius. Using the computer to set up a network called the Moonville Watch that ties us all together. Yesterday it paid off when a suspicious man was seen in the neighborhood. He was watched as he went down the road checking on parked cars to see if they were locked. Police were alerted and he was stopped and questioned and then escorted out of the neighborhood when he could not come up with a good reason why he was there. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Another beautiful morning here in the Deep South. I was counting the pills I take each morning and it comes to eight. Four medical pills and four supplement pills. The supplement pills are for heart muscle, prostate, colon and baby aspirin to help thin the blood. The others are for blood pressure and cholesterol. I really believe the prostate pill is making a difference. I have tried other with varied results, but this one seems to be helping. I take it three times a day which is a hassle but if it helps it is worth it. The fur gang is well this morning. All of them are getting up in age. Peaches is fifteen, Suzie is ten. Hobo we believe is about nine or ten and Izzie is fifteen. All are healthy and doing well. Peaches has her days when she is not on top of every thing, but in all she does very well for a girl her age. Last night Sue and I met with Ava and Allison and their families at Arizona Steak house to celebrate my birthday. We had a wonderful time and a great meal. This Thursday Sue and I will meet with son Scott at Modoc Campground for several days camping. Old Fella Rescue is doing well and going strong. Margie says they have over one hundred dogs and cats in foster homes. They continue to make a difference in Burke County Georgia. Walter I am so glad you and Garland were able to visit the Old Fella Memorial in Waynesboro and see the old home place where Old Fella lived with us while he was alive. I miss those days and remember with fondness the days he was with us and the excitement of all that was happening. I hope all is well with everyone and I will close by wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Live this day as if it was your last day on this earth. What would you say to those you love and what would you say to those with whom you may have a disagreement with. Is there anything you would do you haven't done yet?

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Well this time seventy five years ago I was a day old and just starting out on my adventurous journey in life. Gainesville, Florida seems a million miles away as I wonder what was going through my father and mother's mind. I wasn't an easy kid to raise and I am sure there were some disappointing moments in our relationship. By the time I reached adulthood there were many who questioned if I would live to be an old man and if I did where would I be in life. Well I am an old man and my station in life is secured in the fact that God in his infinite mercy has somehow guided my footsteps and delivered me many times out of some terrible decisions and mistakes. I look about me this morning and realize I have many friends, a great family, a wonderful wife and a great future in front of me. I have been truly blessed. The fur gang is well this morning as is Sue. Yesterday was a wonderful day and I look forward to today as we gather this afternoon at Arizona Steak house to celebrate my birthday. We will be at church this morning and worship our Lord and sing praises to Him, lift up our prayers to Him and be thankful for all that He has done. Have a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Patty is healing slowly. She is trying to get back into things like shopping. But she has to watch she does not over do it. She goes back to the doctor in 3 weeks, hopefully by then she will be back to normal. Glad to hear she is doing well.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. I woke up this morning a year older. Never thought I would make this milestone. As a kid growing up folks would say I had a death wish, wasn't afraid of anything except heights. I would get dizzy climbing the steps to the fire tower. Climbing the steps at a light house bothered me. However speed didn't bother me in the least, go figure.... The fur gang is well and happy this morning. Sue is also doing well after a low blood sugar episode during the night. Izzie, well Izzie is a cat and he owns all around him including the humans. I have posted the 73 Lincoln on facebook. I hope somebody buys it. It's time to find it a new home so I can take care of other things. I love that old car. It is so pretty and rides nice. But it is like being married to two women at the same time. Dan, how is Patty? Dandy Dan when are you coming South? Okay I need to close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is raining here this morning. It will be a good day to stay indoors and read or watch old movies. The girls are fine and Izzie is okay after a 24 hour nap. He went into the bedroom and slept on Suzie's bed all day and last night. Suzie didn't care for Izzie taking her bed but she knew better than to try and roust him out. Suzie slept with us last night always touching my hand to make sure it was okay for her to be in our bed for the night. She often sleeps on our bed during the day, but at night she always goes to her bed. Hobo is showing signs she is having trouble with her hips. She is a big girl and trying to cut her weight is a major undertaking. She loves to eat and is always looking for something. When we go outside she loves to eat the dried up earth worms that have crawled out on the driveway and the sun has baked them into a crisp delicacy. It is constant trying to watch her with eating something. She surfs the yard looking for anything. When we go camping she has to be watched that she doesn't pick up food thrown on the ground. She won't tear into a garbage bag left to be picked up, but if there is an opening she can get her nose into she will certainly be found with her nose in it. I hop all is well with everyone this morning. Dan how is Patty? Dandy Dan I read where Jenni has improved greatly, that's good news. Okay I need to get moving so II will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. I hope all is well with everyone this morning. We had our last revival service last night and it went well. WE had several families to join the church since last Sunday. We had a Missionary family from the Philippians join the church. They moved to Greenville recently and was looking for a church to join and found us to their liking. The fur gang is well. Izzie had a little adventure yesterday. Apparently he got out of the house and we didn't notice until we got home around 8:45 last night. He must have been outside for about three or four hours. When I found him he was petrified and hiding under some bushes next to the house. The bright flashlight picked up his eyes in the dark. They were shining back like two headlights beaming in the dark. When I went to him he was growling at me as if he didn't know who I was. Sue went into the bushes and talked him out. He was glad to get back into the house. The little female Blue Heeler mix has not found a home yet. She is so sweet and humble. I hope someone takes her and gives her a good home. Oaky I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure o give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.
