Don't name your Farm Animals, it is easier to eat a Chicken when its' name isn't Henry.
I am having septic put in mostly just to improve the property for the time I sell it years and years hence. I don't name farm animals.

We took a completely different path in retirement life (RV gypsies) - so it's fun to read your experiences.

Re: Picked my own pasture

Hi Kitty,

Thanks for keeping up with your blog. I enjoy it regularly.

I'm not clear why, since the geese can fly, why they choose to stick around your farm. That is, you've only fed them once or twice, and then the dog chases them; why haven't they flown miles away?

LOL! Yes, the downside to fulltime RVing is you have to drive or tow something large. That took a bit of getting used to. In fact, I even had to upgrade my license to legally drive our 15 ton rig.

But we love to travel, and once we had the time we discovered that we would rather drive than any other form of travel by far.

Actually I find most truckers to be very polite on the freeways.* I tend to travel around 62 mph (saves on gas), and I'm often passed by trucks - they behave just fine.

It's the small cars that occasionally do really stupid things! Some drivers have a death wish! If I get particularly annoyed, I have a big AIR HORN.* It's loud!!!*

Right, so you never get one of those clowns come about 6 inches from your rear because you aren't going fast enough and they don't want to down shift?

Nope - not really. Maybe it's because I'm too "BIG" to get pushed out of the way LOL!

I've had that happen to me in my car though!

I went out side and asked frick and frack why they didn't fly off to somewhere far away. They weren't forthcoming at first mostly just honking and hissing with a little wing flapping. I figure they are still pissed about the whole affair and don't want to make any statements that will come back and bite them in the tail feathers sometime down the road.

I think they are on a hunger strike at the moment as I had given them some leafy vegetables and they eschewed them actually they stand on the leaves and hiss and honk with a little wing flap now and then. I think it is all just a bit of jailhouse bravado.

I guess geese do what geese want to do and they don't give a hoot (?) what we think

Lora Bay looks good, Max, because it's "honest." Honesty is something you want in a bay.

Re: Picked my own pasture

I just came back from Lora Bay and the guy who is doing the building is a Scot who arrived in Canada with a tool belt and $50 about 30 years ago, now he has a huge construction company.

He is not very tall, straight in your face, not a slick sales type, just worked real hard, and delivered a quality product on time.
