    LOL. I know. I love both kinds. My dad had beef cattle and he had horses too. Personally I don't like hamburger or milk but have consumed plenty of both. I didn't have a choice what I was allowed to not eat until I let home. Combining beef and milk in the form of a cheeseburger is really gross to me. Gag. We have tons of both kinds of cows in the area. Within a mile of my home I have too many cows to count, about 45 horses, pigs, 3 goats, sheep, chickens, peacocks, pet rabbits, eagles, plus other assorted wildlife. I like the goats and peacocks the best. The sheep are cute. This is not the place to live if you are sensitive to smells. If you want some fertilizer though you can have as much as you want for free but you will have to help yourself to it. A little further away neighbors have some llamas and emus. I'm not sure what the neighbors do with those. They get loose a lot. A wild turkey is a about 5 feet from my window right now. He loves corn. While you have civilization we have a zoo plus a commercial pumpkin patch, a vineyard, lots of corn fields, soybeans fields, and still some winter wheat that has not been harvested. We are in the bread basket and lots of fields are not planted this year so prepare for higher prices. What we don't have is dependable phones, internet, T.V. or power.. We are hopeful though. If we can get emus surely we will someday be able to use a cell phone at home.

    Thanks for getting me out there. 26 spindles to go!

    Dad has a follow up appointment on Thursday with his GP. We (their kids) prepared a list of questions we wanted addressed during their semi annual exams. Driving ability being one. I’m told there is a simulator that can do this very thing. Crossing fingers this gets the job done. The state knows he’s a bad driver, his tickets are proof. Then again, OLD people are their bread and butter...we saw sooooooooomany bad drivers while there. Almost all were elderly, and barely able to move...just like my parents.

    Love them and I enjoy my time with them...buuuuuuuut the huge declines in health, mobility, memory muddy everything. Dad still insists on driving, I insist on telling him he shouldn’t. Mom is afraid to drive, yet even she has to realize on some level that his working memory is gone. She needs so much support. The memory loss has been an issue for years, his meds post heart attack aren’t helping. They have chosen to be in denial forever. Like don’t think about things like updating your will or POA, so nothing will change. Riiiiiiiiight! I love on them, love them like crazy and understand the blessing it is that they are both still here. Hard to be so far away when the needs are so great. I’m working on my balancing act, no danger of running off and joining the circus with my death defying talent.
