Thanks it is the click flooring honey wants to put down the 5/8 in glue down floor. Ow I would jump on it and guess as to how much we need.

Beautiful healthy deer!
They bed down in our yard and woods, have a real variety to eat up since I don't fence anything off. I do protect a few of the small plants they would eat to the ground, until they are big enough to survive the munchers.

I have a white buck here but have never been able to get a pic of it .It is a 10 pointer and have had a few doe's also that are white .I feed them back in the weoods and give them fresh water and put str5aw down for them to bed down in .I do not allow hunters here .Best thing is the babies in the spring .

Pond is frozen solid, I was out yesterday with a pot of boiling water to get the pond breather out as it quit working. Have tried to get it working so I am hoping for the best. Temps today 2F with a wind chill of -25 and a flash freeze on the way again today. Just hoping the pump and waterfall keep the water moving. One evergreen near the pond lost some branch's due to the weight of ice, so I have some clean up to do.

So far my pond has not gotten any ice on it at all .The doctor took him all his blood pressure meds and he has to go back this thursday again to see what is going on .I just went on the labcorp sight but his test results are not back yet .I always print them out so I can discuss them with his doctor at each visit .Tara try to find a pond heater .Most farm stores carry them .I now have an extra one after last winter my old ones cord broke after I chased the cat and he hit the cord and snapped it .It was old so had to expect it to happen sooner or later .I bought another one to have at rural king here and it was onsale for 5.99 from 9.99 .I found Murhy's law always happens to me .I hope you can get another one fast .

The pond water is staying a nice 40f at the bottom. The surface is ice covered. But tomorrow it will melt, again.

My ice is melting again. But the fish are all hiding in the deep end. I do see them on the cams snacking on the plants.
