Hey Doc, I'm just gonna take a wild guess here and say Mr. AJ is not a spring chicken?
BUT if AJ is a "young gun", he might've had a rough childhood, weeding in the rice paddy, sans sandals....

Hey Di - Maybe you could get Scott one of these so his feet will hit the ground |

Oh...my skills are great with driving the Harley.
Had my own for 15 years until it got so old no one would work on it.
1985 EVO Police Special .....awesome bike. Was an old parade bike from Delaware.
Special Cam built in for chasing the bad guys.
Will have to send some PIC's someday.
After I sold mine Scott and I went riding on his bike ....me driving..and him riding "itch" ........had to go through Skyway toll plaza and a bunch of other bikers rolled up beside us.
They laughed at Scott .....and said to one of the buddies ......"She's driving because his feet probably can't touch the ground" .......since then he has refused to ever ride on the back again.
Shoot .....I was just practicing towing someone and they ruined it for me!!!

|ECIN||Lannie - I like your thinking on when to calf - But we fell into that springer group For the main reason of keeping the calves safer - we had way to many cows to let them all stay in the barn when it got cold - snowing - or the worse - rain - fallowed by very cold temps + snow = dead cows or calf's|

As to the milk tasting like the cow's breath, it shouldn't. Sometimes a cow will go into a negative energy balance (ketosis) and her breath will start smelling a bit sharp, and the milk smells pretty much the same. She's having a low-sugar episode with ketosis and feeding her high carbs and sugar will usually pull her out of it unless it's gone on for a day or three, in which case she would be very sick and need emergency care. My first cow, Bandit, had a ketotic episode once and I didn't recognize it (my first time with it), so it went on longer than it should have and I almost lost her. Luckily, my neighbor happened to suggest maybe she didn't like that new hay we'd gotten and was on a hunger strike, so he donated some bales of alfalfa to us and I gave her a couple of B-complex shots to get her appetite going, and she pulled out of it. I had to feed her a corn mix for about a month, though, to get the weight back on her, and I don't usually feed corn, but it was a matter of life and death, so I did.
I think he's 15h3, but I've never measured him. But eyeballing him, I think that's right. He's athletic, though, that's for sure. Nice short back and strong legs and chest. I wish I could take videos, you should see him when he starts jumping around and farting, just to amuse himself. There doesn't even have to BE a scary bag monster in the pasture! ROFL! He's hysterical, and I just love watching him. Sometimes he comes flying into the corral from the pasture and it's muddy or snowy/icy and my heart stops, expecting him to slide right into the fence, but he always times his slides so he stops just inches away, then prances (that passage thing that dressage horses do?) away like he's the King of the World. And I guess he is, in his own mind. Eh, in mine, too.
In other news, it's 3 below zero this morning, and the breeze is making the wind chill 20 below. I am NOT looking forward to chores. That's snot-freezing temps! But gotta go get those critters some hay to eat so they can keep their furnaces going and keep warm. I'm glad I'm not milking right now, this is one of those days that make milking a miserable chore for me. It's probably not so nice for the cows, either, because I use a belly milker and the rubber inflations that go on their teats are freeeeezing by the time I get everything out there and set up, and clean up the cows.
People always say they can't understand why I want my cows to calve in the fall, rather than in the spring, when there's all that nice pasture to make good milk to raise a calf on. Well, THIS is why. In the winter, when it's this cold, I can let the calf do the milking chores for me, then by spring, when all that nice grass comes up, the calf is ready to wean and *I* get all that luscious wonderful grass-fed cream for MY OWN SELF. Yes, this is why I have cows!
As always, the above is just my personal opinion, based on my personal experiences.

OKAY SP, You Asked For It, Here's the Timeline:
(and I got up too early...)
First: The USPS will conduct two in-house mail fraud investigations...
Second: A 2-year, very expensive, special counsel study to be started, entitled the "Shelbyville Report" about the alleged defamatory use of US Postal System.
Third: Two show inquiries will held at the Shelbyville city council meetings, mostly held in secret, with "witnesses" flown in from FL, TX, CO, TN, VA, OR and even Canada! Expect lots of grandstanding by potential mayoral candidate counsel members when cameras are finally allowed.
Fourth: "Charges" from the city council could be turned over to the DTMC (Doberman Talk Mod Chamber) for possible disciplinary measures. These measures could range from a public rebuke on the Forum to a lengthy WS trip or the ultimate - CT "Double Secret Probation"
The latter punishment is the most severe because the member remains on the forum, but thier personality is essentially eviserated, i.e. brain washed, so they will behave in "acceptable" manor! (ref: "A Clockwork Orange" 1971)
Not mentioned, is the public character assassination, conducted by certain DT members in collusion with the media, before these investigations are even completed!
Yes, My MA Dearest, I Will ALWAYS Place Song Titles Above Music Links...

Some are written down--my aunt wrote down her memories of her grandmother (so my great GMa) that are interesting. But you have to figure that each generation probably loses at least 95% of all the family stories that get told by the last generation (though they do add their own)....it's sad what gets lost forever. My mom's side has a few stories too, but she wasn't nearly the story teller that my dad was.
I do have an old family bible from my great grandmother, a piece of her furniture, and some house stuff of hers, from my mom's side (she was born in the 1860's--my great grandma, I mean.) I was named after her (and she was named after her father's FIRST wife, who died young; her mom was his second wife--I always wondered about that one. But I guess they probably all knew each other in a small community), so that makes them special (even though the piece of furniture is...well...not exactly gorgeous. But obviously handmade by someone. I think they had the marble top shipped in. It used to have an oval mirror with an ornate surround, but that didn't survive when my parent's house burned.)
My sister though, like I said, is the family historian. She remembers EVERYTHING (even all of those embarrassing stories about me from our childhood) But sometimes that trait comes in handy.

I don't know.
Am I on Double Secret Probation Mission kind of thing?
You know, I kind of, sort of need to know if I am.

That house is awesome. It would be right up Mister's alley.
|12-09-2019 10:51 PM|
Please, please, please, Ma?
Show us what you got!
I still think you are yanking my chain, though.

I would have had a nice weekend if I wouldn't have had a headache from it all weekend.
When Axel got a straight shot? I was sick for a week. And, no I wasn't using it to get out of work for a week. Well maybe a little bit.

I know he is even more beautiful sleeked out.

You've got to archive them.
My Mom has a bundle of hand written love letters and telegraphs between Grandma and Grandpa. I didn't get through all of them. They were so sincere, missing you and all kinds of kissy kissy in an affectionate way. And, beautiful penmanship each of them had!
They were separated because they met in NY. Grandpa moved his new bride to Kansas and then back to work in NY. Earned the seed money and when he came back, there they stayed!
|12-09-2019 10:13 PM|
Fine. I will go haunt the boys.

|melbrod||Oh yeah....lots of pictures. Not quite as many from my time there, but quite a few black and white pics of various great great folks that I barely know who they were. I mean, most were labeled, but that only goes so far.|
