Glad to know it's not just me who needs more hours in the day. Check back soon! Wade, Thanks for the comment! Hope things work out for combining the childrens home and farming. I think it's a wonderful combination. Hope you enjoy the blog! Jim, Other than being absolutely exhausted both mentally and physically we are making it. Looks like chickens are coming on the 28th! This is a Word Press format. Thanks for reading! Spike, Thanks for noticing this is no walk in the park. Glad you like the blog. Everybody should spend a day with a farmer. I think life in general is too busy as time progresses. Thanks for the comment and glad to have you reading! Penny, Maybe I should try that! Next time I'm feeling overwhelmed I'll just read about what's overwhelming you! You better not let Madison know about those ponies. She'd buy them all! Our neighbor bought a jack and Madison promptly declared she was buying it from him. Needless to say we now own a jack. Thanks for the comment and glad to have you reading! Leora, Glad to have you reading. Remind your boss it's just research. Glad to know I can atleast lighten up a hard day's work. Check back soon! paintsmh, It sure would have helped my wallet out if we hadn't bothered to get out of bed that day. Thanks for the comment! Kevin, You're right about thaking the man up above that noone was hurt. The property owner told us he'd seen a lot of them on their top right there where she wrecked. I could fix the car, but it would cost more than $3000 so I figured I would just keep it for parts. Rebel is hanging in there. He's actually getting back to his old self. Unfortunately that means he's getting to be a handful again. Thanks for the kind words for Rick and Delores! I'm convinced that this rental deal will never be anything more than a headache. I like to refer to this as the welfare capital of the world! Plenty of dopers and lowlifes to go around. Cindy,

If you don't you won't believe the deadbeats and layabouts that will come out of the woodwork wanting a place to stay without concerns of "paying thier way." (You might even have a doper or two come around looking for a place to cook thier meth or grow some pot! It has happened to a few farmers in this area.) Joel,

Only question is cost and value of the car. (If the value of the car is less than repairs, unless the rest of the car is in superior condition, you probably will be ahead finding one with a blown motor/transaxle that the owner is willing to sell. WATCH OUT FOR CARS THAT HAVE BEEN FLOODED! Since Katrina there have been hundreds of them slipping onto the market.) I'm glad you are trying to give Josh's dog a chance. I had one of my sister's cats come down with congestive heart failure about a year after my sister had died. I spent several hundred dollars in vet and medication bills trying to keep Samantha alive, but after five months of fighting the good fight she couldn't carry on any longer. Rick and Dolores, I am sorry to hear about your illness, and hope that the good Lord helps give you as many good days as he can and that your pain is limited. I had a good friend who's wife went through the brain tumor problem as well. She had surgery a number of times to remove parts of it, but unfortunately because of where it was they could never get it all, and it wasn't responsive to chemo or radiation. After several years, and many changes in thier lives, Jim lost Bev. May God bless you both! Take of yourselves, and try to have some fun! I know how hard that can be when the weather is as nasty as it has been. Joel,

I just stumbled onto your blog while doing some research for my boss! LOL! It's great! I have horses and live in the country (work in the city) and boy do I feel some of your pain and some of your joy too...especially in the wintertime. Well, thanks for giving me some pleasure while I'm at work! Hi! I just stumbled onto your blog while doing some research for my boss! LOL! It’s great!

It affords people a chance to see a different way of living. Farming is no walk in the park. I have a friend who is a dairy farmer in central Michigan and he is always busy. Such is the life a farmer. Such is life in general perhaps. Always on. This is really a great idea for a blog. It affords people a chance to see a different way of living.
