We all want an Answer to our Questions.

  Automobiles from another era:

 1956 BMW

For today:

I know NOTHING about flea collars. They did not exist when I was a kid nor when our boys had dogs.  I AM familiar with ‘Flea Powder!’ I guess that is harmful to humans and pets since I cannot see it anywhere.

So I ask Mr. Google the question, “How long does it take the flea collar to start working?”

I wanted the answer like, “Three days and then five days the kitty will be Flea Free!”

No such answer. Of course like government, lots of if ands and buts. LOL So I will just wait and hope the kitties quit scratching constantly SOON.  AND YES, of course I want INSTANT results, doesn’t everyone?  LOL

BTW all cats were out of the basement last night, no one wanted to come in. LOL

More people must be reading e-books now. Very few folks looked at the books. WE did have a complete set of Laura Engles writings, they sold for 10 cents each. The lady paid more.. A sample of the prices. Books 10 cents each or 12 for a dollar hardback or paperback. Clothes including coats 25 cents. LOL Practically new Singer $5.

Sherry got to see a cousin, The Rev Reid Harris. She had not seen in many moons. That is a home town thing. He also is a pastor nearby and VERY TALL over 6.5 feet. That made her day. We got to see the wife and family also.

There are some benefits to yard sales.

PS: Son Jack asked, "Dad did you read the instructions on the flea collars.?"

Me, "No!"

"Did you  stretch the collars?"


He retrieved the instructions from the trash and read to me: "You must stretch the collar to activate the insecticide!"

"Uh OH!"

Okay, I have now!  LOL.... Now I hope I can see some results. (as I palm my face!)

Flea Collars must be "Streched" now to "Activate" them, I found that out after reading the instructions !!! LoL !! I do it with the new ones I put on Tipper now but I also sprinkle the white flea powder around the cellar floor for the eggs and to stop reinfesting her !!! I remember Grampa grabbing a Barn Cat and sprinkling ashes on it which he said kills fleas. ! Take it easy and enjoy those kittens, sending down love from the North !!! Gary an Anna Mae

I used to put a drop of flea repellent behind our cat's neck instead of flea collars because I was always afraid she would get her collar caught on something when she roamed the property. Anyway, we had her 14yrs and never any fleas! Our dog gets one flea and tick pill every 3 months. Much easier! Your yard sale sounds like great bargains all around!

I would have bought books at those prices! When we lived in Montana, fleas were not an issue, lol. Too cold for them in winter to survive :)

A Mother was reading a Bible story to her young daughter. She read "The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city, but his wife looked back and was turned into a pillar of salt".

Her daughter asked, "What happened to the flea?"

God bless.

Just like most men not to read the instructions, but it is truly worth while. LOL. Hope you are soon flea free. Our dogs had them once years ago and it took awhile to get rid of them sure. If you have any bedding laying around that they use, you'll want to wash that too. Sounds like fun at the flea market and nice to see relatives we don't see often. They can be a real social gathering.

Cool car! I'll never forget, it wasn't a month after we'd moved here when I discovered fleas on our girls. (In the words of my late mother, "Horrors!") Thankfully, our son's vet agreed to see us the next day. We arrived, my head hanging low like the worst doggie mother in the world. He was really nice and totally understood, coming from Arizona that had never been an issue. Gave them each a shot and prescribed Simperica -- and just like he promised, they were gone in 15 minutes! I didn't need to burn down the house after all! 😀

Good thing you and Sherry had a baby with a whole lot of smarts, oh my gosh, you had two of them. I save all the crap that come with a product, read it and my dog still has fleas! Hugs from Chobee...
