I just realized I don't know how to use DW's smart phone to call my phone. Maybe we will all go??? 🤔
Maybe it’s time to get a smart phone of your own. If I can learn one, you can. Even better yet, if my husband can learn how to use one after we pried his clenched fist off the old dinosaur phone he had and dragged him into the modern world of phones, kicking and screaming, ANYONE can learn to use a smart phone. He loves it now.

We got a ton of feed, meat chicken feed, lamb grower, whole corn for the pigs, cracked corn for Pearl, and Martindale all purpose pellets that we feed to the horses, sheep, pigs and chickens. Unloaded, stacked, put some in metal cans, took some to horse barn, put in metal trash cans, stacked, done. Then I fixed us grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Feeding these extra animals gets expensive, but when we sell the meat, we get it all back and what we keep is basically free.

@Mini Horses happy fencing today! Try to not knock your DEAR SON in the head. LOL
SURPRISE!!!!!

Is it an iphone? My hubby has an iphone and there's some sort of 'find my phone' feature.

Maybe just call your number from her phone? Hopefully your phone isn't on silent.
No it's a keyocera flip phone. She DW looked up on our plan if she could track it. Apparently they can track it for social distancing to 1 square foot, yet I have to pay extra (monthly) and activate mine before I lose it If I want to find it. It also had a regular tracking for them to track you I turned off but they still do.
I tried that after we drove out there and took off horse back (me and DS#1) after an hour I wondered does my phone even ring. I charged it Sun and it last for a good 5 days. No it didn't ring. I rode back to drop off DS to DW to ride faster well actually ride and go through the ups, downs, under's and all around the steep creek hill side and creek crossing. Then she said it's going straight to voicemail.

No. Not no but absolutely not. Everyone has one. F that's what they said for the last 10 yrs. Well I don't and I didn't then. It's a wonder I'm on here. Not to mention the same with face book. I finally had the wife set up a page because apparently that's how you get a job now in my line of work. Do I look at it no. Will I do my own Heck no. Why because I've literally drove across the country without any of that and found jobs before and to prove it's not necessary.

Sorry for the rant.
p.s. I'm not quite 40 yet.

Well I'll update now, because I may not be able to move tomorrow!!! 😂 Already been in a looong, hot shower. My back and shoulders are screaming. Aleve is my best friend. I've smeared cream on for these old, achy muscles.

I removed 300' of old fence...tore out bad wooden posts and pounded in about 15 t-posts. DS dug holes and put in new corners with braces, unrolled fence, set up stretcher, etc. As it turned out, off and on old girlfriend came to help....I was SO GLAD when she needed to leave. Just held things up! Anyway, one entire side is up. Trust me, I did more than 50%!!!

Pics? No. Getting late when picking up tools, closing gates, etc, to be able to let all the screaming goats back into their field....their barn! Creatures of habit.

Hoping to get another side up Sun, about 350'. Last part. I will begin reminding DS Fri, so we can be ready same day! If I can get this body out of bed tomorrow, I really need to go to work! :old :lol::lol::lol:. I feel like the goats stampeded over top me...stomping me into the ground! I know tomorrow will be a challenge. Maybe I'm getting too old for this??? 😁:idunno🥴


Just info....it was Redbrand sheep and goat, 4'. Heavy and I'm thinking it will be very good. TSC had it and none of the Bekeart HT sheep/goat, athough they carry their field fence.

My son is a crane operator, he has contacts on Fakebook and by phone. He is 38, does love Fakebook Marketplace and finds good deals on it. I have a Fakebook page, don't ever post anything and it is NOT linked to my phone.

Like your son we are the same age and same line of work and yes pretty much everyone I've worked with in the last ten years has a newer/almost the newest phone.

Good work Mini. It'll hurt tomorrow but you'll be thankful it's done for a long time.
MiniHorses glad that you got fence up, hope you survive to get the rest of the fence built. Please check in, in the morning so that we know you aren't laying in bed with rigor mortise. :lol:

I'm up! :thumbsup. Waking without assistance...:lol:

Chores done. Hot coffee and a morning Aleve. Trust me, a little sore here and there but, after some stretching out I'm really good! Actually slept well, that helps. Recovery. Guess I'm still "able". 😁:old

Thrilled to have that done and looking forward to Sun, actually. Yes, I will enjoy This new fence for a long time. I'm replacing 20 yr old fence. Not bad. This will last as long, they've improved things over the years! Different knoting at joints, better metal, galvanization, etc. Makes you want everything replaced....ain't happening! 😶

Sooooo, hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go......

Coffee is on. finally got my test result this morning, it was negative. :bunny guess I have no more excuses to sit on my butt any longer. Maybe I need a new allergy medication? IDK
Kids will be happy as I won't have to cancel all their plans this weekend. And I can let someone come look at bunnies and the pony. The pony who seems quite well lately, but DD wants to move on.

Thanks for coffee, I’m still tired. Been going hard lately. It rained last night, I’m happy. I got the pipeline disced up and 25 pounds of giant Bermuda grass seed sowed on it on Monday. I got the biggest part of the garden disced up yesterday evening. Was going to finish garden this morning, don’t know now.
Today BJ has 2 dr appointments, this morning is the results of lab work, this afternoon is check up on his cataract surgery from last year. We gotta get the car inspected and tags for it and the two trailers.
Y’all have a great day!
