    Congrats on the cig milestone. After all the years I cocktail waitressed, and the smoke in the bars, (pre-ban) I hated smoking even more than most. Then I developed a severe "allergy" to it, and it was like someone who gets severely allergic to a bee sting. Now it doesn't affect me so much, but I am seldom around anyone who smokes at all. Still, it's a great accomplishment to go smoke free.

    Congrats! :thumbsup
    When my DH decided to quit smoking a few years, that was the 2nd best decision he'd ever made. 1st best decision was to marry me or course, LOL!:lol:

    Another trip to Tractor Supply this morning for the pet vet clinic. Went out this morning and Callie was on the deck. So, I grabbed a carrier and shut her in it. I had worried it might be an issue getting her to the clinic with their schedule and her schedule. You never know when she's going to be out wandering. Took Bella too for her 2nd Lyme shot/booster.

    Roosevelt got fixed yesterday. Marvel is scheduled for next week. I mentioned on Babs journal that they had been fighting. I mean bad. I was having trouble keeping them apart. I figured this will help. Also, he has been in the front field with some of the bucks by himself. I guess we will let him stay with the does with Bella and Mikey. It will also give us some more flexibility about moving animals around. Marvel is Bella's dad and Roosevelt is her brother so, we had no plans to breed anyone. May get Bella fixed later tool.

    We got a surprise email from ADGA yesterday. It seems Climate Control made the preliminary leader board again in 2018.
    She is 7th in the country in fat.
    We hadn't even been tracking because her volume went down from 2017, but her percentage is pretty high for a Toggenburg. I think she was 3rd in 2017 I can't remember for sure.

    I think we are going to try something different with the Toggs next year and cross them with another breed, maybe Sannen or Alpine for experimentals.
