Beer??? I had to quit drinking when I got married. My wife has a bad drinking problem. Seems that she gets real mean when I drink.

Seriously, things are mostly back to normal around here, thank God! Daughter and granddaughter were here today, and we had a good time playing with little 9 month old Grace. She's just on the verge of walking, and she has such a sunny friendly personality!

Tomorrow night or early Tuesday AM, our son and his family will be coming to spend a few days. They just had a new baby boy 3 weeks ago, and I've not seen him yet. We rarely see them, since they are living 10 hours away in Iowa City. He's doing a pediatrics residency there, and they make the lives and schedules of residents pretty nasty. A federal law was passed that limits them to no more than 30 hours on a shift, and no more than 80 hours a week. I think that's terrible. If I'm sick or injured, I'd want someone who is well rested and in a good mood to take care of me.

There is nothing that will cure a grandma of whatever ails her quicker than holding a brand new grandbaby!! ( Speaking from experience)
Hope both of you enjoy the visiting :)

I am going to save MReit's comments for when she is really feeling sick and miserable and has to chase cows all over the neighborhood.
SHe can be quite difficult to live with under those conditions:)

And the deer will catch it and short it out. Or one will be immune to it. We have one of those too but..... every once-in-a-while.

We've banned hot wires on this place!
There always seems to be the 1 animal that takes it out, then the rest spread the wire from one end of the farm to the other!
I still come across odd ball pieces of it, in places it should not be!

Ok, not to sound dumb, but what are you guys calling a hotwire? Here in the east coast, we call a hot wire a single strand of electric around the the top of other permanent fencing. it is just plain old electric. We need the kind that will shoot sparks out your...... elbows. LOL. what are you guys using for chargers?

I call a hot wire, an electric fence. Some of ours are single strands around the pasture and some are double strands around the pasture. They are what keep the cattle in the pasture and are often the only fence for our pastures.

As for which ones we're using I would have to go out and write them down. There's three different ones out there. :)
