    We're having some neighbors over but I always fill the smoker up whenever I use it. We get a lot of made-ahead meals that we vacuum seal. I use the same amount of pellets whether I'm doing a shoulder or a bunch of meat. :)

    We are buying a boat from some friends of ours. They bought it and thought they had problems with the live well leaking into the boat hull but had it checked out and fixed (a drain tube). In the mean time the lady of the mix decided it would not do for what she wanted so she went and bought a boat that fit her needs. This boat has been in the shop to check it out so it works for us at what they paid for it.

    It looks like we have about 10 more days in the mid to high 90's. I got the two groups of lambs moved to outer paddocks this morning and then brought the main flock into the shop paddock so we can pull some fecal samples and check hooves. Maxwell seems to have settled in with our girls and myself as he came right across with no hesitation.
