This is my post for #freewriters Wednesday prompt knit wear hosted by @mariannewest

This darn dog!!! I told her that I was going to change her name to Digger, she will not stop digging holes in my yard. Right next to this hole I covered another hole she had dug, then I put some small rocks on top of it. I also put what some might call knit wear over the hole. It is really an old clam bag. We grew clams and would put 800 small clams in a bag like this and place them on the bottom of the river until they got to sellable size.

She did not only dig one hole, she dug a hole at each end of the clam bag. I wonder what goes through her head while she is digging. Does she think that I will show her, she covers my hole with rocks and a clam bag, I will dig one on each end and see what she does about that.

I showed her what I was going to do about it. I tied her to the front house steps and scolded her the entire time that I shoveled the dirt back in them. Then I told her that she was dirty from digging holes and took her to the water hose with a bottle of baby shampoo and gave her a bath. As it turned out I thought she enjoyed the bath. So I do not think that one did any good. While I was scolding her I could tell that she knew she did bad but I have my doubts that it will do any good. Now I have a flower pot on one end of the clam bag and a big rock on the other end. I wonder if she will dig next to them....

Well, today we did not do as bad as yesterday, we never caught anything, today we caught 4. We came in early because it was blowing out of the north. I sit on the bow and one wave came over it soaking me.

When we got home, I took the carburetor off of my motor, once again. My husband had to buy a new compressor so I thought maybe it would have more pressure than the old one and I wanted to blow out the jets in it with this new compressor. It did not work. The motor does the same thing.

I can not fish by myself yet but I would like to get it fixed for when I can go back to running my own boat again. I also need to get my truck fixed. I just can not believe my luck. My body, truck, and boat are all 3 broke down. Things will get better. They just have to.

Since I've been married I have two dogs that live with me now. Jeff has two sister dogs. One of them really likes to dig holes right by the house and lay down in them. My siberian husky that died in 2014 did the same thing. It was very frustrating and I never grew Flowers by the house because of her. I do miss her very much, though. She was never really fond of baths and neither are these two mixed dogs of Jeff's.

I prefer a good smelling dog, but now that the weather's getting colder I don't think they're going to be getting as many baths and that's too bad cuz there stinky LOL. I bought some wipes that will temporarily take odor away. Jeff takes the dogs over to his house when they are going to have a bath and it's a big production because they hate baths and the whole bathroom becomes upside down with their dog hair mess.

Sending up some more prayers for you for your body, your boat, and your truck! I've been dealing with migraines frequently because of the changing weather here. Fortunately I didn't get a bad headache today. I think I'll go make myself feel better by eating a Butterfinger. 🤣

Prayers for your headaches to go away and never come back, one of my daughters has migraines, they are terrible. I have never had one, knock on wood. My granddaughter gives the dog her baths, I thought it would be more of another way to scold her but it backfired on me. My heart hurts for the loss of your dog. I have lost 6 and every one of them hurts they are like one of the family.

I feel for your daughter 😕. They truly are miserable. I get botox injections every three months. I sure miss my Sasha, I'm sorry to hear of your losses, too. Thank you for your prayers, I truly appreciate them.

Sasha is the name of our granddaughter's dog that we are caring for. Does botox help migraines?

Botox helps 2 out of three months as a preventive to reduce the severity and frequency of migraine. It isn't full proof, and I get migraines when the barometric pressure is swinging like now and in spring. I wouldn't be able to work without it, though.

I do not know her triggers but when she has them, she goes to her room, lights off, and no noise. She has had them since being in her early teens, she is now 47, wow that just hit me. I have an almost 50-year-old child. UNBIELVABLE. I will tell her about botox.

Isn't that weird? I have a daughter who's over 40, too. I feel old myself but not really LOL. The botox can work for many people, there's also other new medications that you can self-inject that are also successful. If you are diagnosed with chronic migraine then there are options out there for preventative other than oral pills.

I recommend she seek out a good neurologist because they will best be able to first to diagnose her with the correct type of migraine and then provide the best treatment plan for her specific type of migraine. I was diagnosed with chronic traumatic migraine due to a car/pedestrian accident and hemaplegic migraine. For years my family doctor had me on Imitrex which is the wrong type of medication for my migraine and even could have ended up causing a stroke for me. My heart goes out to your daughter as I understand her struggles.

thank you, she sees a doctor for them, I think she takes shots but they do not always work. It is funny how we have things in common, daughters in their 40's and dog named Shasa. I find this sort of thing interesting.

Haha that is pretty interesting. I can't try the other injections unless I go 6 months without Botox. No way to sample another for a better result unless I pay out of pocket or suffer. 🙄 I'm doing okay so far with Botox.

My dogs do the same..keep digging. That knit wear will not help. They ruined my pond too since there's no water in it I let it be. Just annoyed about the fence. I keep repairing that one.

It feels (reads) as if your body, truck and boat are one. 🤔

If I put rocks on the spot she has dug up, she will dig next to it. I need to cover my yard with rocks. lol You are so right, the truck, motor, and my body do seem to be all connected. it is crazy how all three are broke down.
