i guess these are new times. There are people who go through full blown relationships beginning to end and have never even smelled one another.

Sometimes I don't think I even know myself...

All this to say that it's sorta an illusion to think that you really know anyone...

Oops! But, that's what I do. I apologize if I offended anyone. See ya in the WS, Ma!

Seriously, though. None of us know who is BSing and who is not. Until you at least talk to the person on the phone, can you gage who is real and who is not? I am assuming that Kenny talks to Lannie, and Kenny seems genuine to me. He's too cute to not be legit.

My brothers have hung out with me too long to not trust them, a little bit.

That would be Calvin Coolidge.

"Born and raised in the small farming community of Plymouth, Vermont, Calvin Coolidge grew up loving the farm"

"Coolidge’s father helped establish a dairy cooperative and cheese factory"

From this article:
https://fulltimegypsies.wordpress.co...lvin-coolidge/ June, 2013


I knew this already--

Calvin was visiting his father (John Calvin Coolidge, Sr) at his home in Vermont when he received news of President Harding's death. His father was a notary public and justice of the peace, and actually administered the oath of office to his son.

and thought "how many Presidents came from Vermont?" So I googled the rest and put it all together for you guys. Aren't I smart??



Incidentally, the above article also said,
"While we were touring a church next door to the Adams National Historic Site Visitors Center in Quincy, MA we talked with our guide....When he heard we would be in Vermont, he said we’d be near the home of Calvin Coolidge. He told us this was one of the best restored Presidential birthplaces."

After your time, AB?????

Agreed!

The best way to meet someone and meet, date and break up, are best done by mutual friends.

That way your mutual friends can realistically go through the break up with you!



If Mister decides he has had enough of my crap and leaves, I guess I am going to have to start going to church. I refuse to hang out in bars to hook up my next prey.

Good morning to all.......yep...I am in the same boat with some of you.....with the exception of Scott and you folks...I do not share with to many Humans........this thread is very important to me because it is where I share things that I typically would never share with my day to day humans............I sense freedom here........no fear.
I can speak the truth ......or I can even make chit up if I feel like entertaining ..........although ........I find you folks are wise and rarely fall for my creative stories.
I know you know when I am BS'ing .......I always do those things to make you laugh......because that's what all of you do for me......make me laugh.
Even AJ makes me laugh......I always know he's out there!
So what a great day .............ah....I feel good now ! For real!
So is Meadowcat gonna make us some chicken jammies ? I think she should.....

If so, we don't need to follow, got that drama right here.....

There is really nothing else to do, but jump in. Unless, you want to lag behind for weeks, like Aunt B and then you have to play catch up even harder. Someone here will "splain" what's going on.

Welcome fellow burner!

I don't have a water bill either. In my opinion, well water tastes better than city water. It does give my coffee pot a kidney stone, though. I just remove the stone with vinegar periodically.

How much acreage do you have, Lannie?
Thanks! We have 15 acres set in the middle of several thousand acres of grassland, most of which belong to our neighbor. He sold off this small parcel to a relative many moons ago, and then they sold it to us. It's definitely quiet out here, except when the motorcycles go roaring by on their way to Sturgis every summer.

We have well water, too (well, OBVIOUSLY...), but ours is softer. It took me a long time to get used to it - it tasted like there was baking soda in it, ick. But now it tastes normal to me and it doesn't leave spots and chunks all over everything, which is nice. When we lived in Central Oregon, we had the best tasting water, but it was hard.

I think Lannie fits in just fine here.
Me, too, on the hay thing. We're lucky to have the best hay guy in the world (and I've been buying hay here and back in Oregon for over 40 years now, so I have some experience), but he charges for his high quality. I don't mind, though because it's guaranteed. If I find ONE flake in one of the large squares that has the least bit of musty or moldy smell to it, he'll replace the entire bale. Same if I find a weed. But unless it's like a third or more of a bale that's "contaminated," I won't tell him. I don't think it's fair for him to bring another 800 pounds of hay just for one or two bad flakes. Our water, and our hay guy, are the main reasons we stay here. And the expense. And we're too old to move... I guess there's a lot of reasons we don't get the hell out of here. It IS beautiful here.

I be a gurl. Feisty redhead to be exact. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon but left in 1995 to go to Redmond (OR) so I could dry out a little bit. Too much rain for my likes in Portland, and I was SO much happier in Redmond. We'd still be there (me and the hubs) except for the influx of out of staters that drove the prices up so high so fast. And just the whole attitude in general. We were living out of time. Out here, it's just like Oregon used to be back in the 60s.

And of course there's the whole farm thing. I was a "professional" back in Portland (office manager type), and did the whole dress/nylons/high heels thing every day. Now I don't own a dress or nylons, and although I kept a couple pair of cute high-heeled boots, I never wear them. Now I have milk cows and chickens and dogs and cats and nobody cares what I wear. I love my cows, absolutely LOVE them. I had horses most of my life, and we still have the last one out in the pasture eating hay and tearassing around the place when he thinks he heard something (he's an Arab gelding, gorgeous boy), but he's not saddle broke and I don't have the time or the round pen to work with him, so he's just decoration. He still takes my breath away when he dances...

Oh, and I'm an old fart, sorta. I'm going to be 62 in December, and Rich, my husband will be <GASP> 71 in February. He doesn't do much around here anymore, which is why I don't have a lot of time on the computer. I'm doing most everything now.

I did have time to look at those fall fashions for chickens, though. OMG. So funny. I can tell you, though, that chickens don't NEED sweaters, people need to make them and then play dress-up with the chickens. LOL! Some of our chickens go through a South Dakota winter with no feathers on their backs (we have too many roosters) and they're fine. I do think I need a little bonnet for our house chicken, though. Her name is Chicklet, how original, eh? We found her abandoned one evening about 4 years ago now, and couldn't find her mama, so we brought her in the house so she wouldn't die. And she stayed. Now she has a cage in the living room, near the window, and I take care of her as if she was a parrot, but she's quieter than a parrot. And she laid an egg every day for me for a couple years, but she's getting old now, too, so no more eggs. She just eats and poops, but she's very friendly and personable. And don't think it's just dogs and cats that beg while you're eating dinner. She could give LESSONS in begging, LOL! It's a good thing she's in her cage, because otherwise I'm sure she'd fly right up into my plate while I'm eating.

So there, that's me.

Lady Di, no, no pet pig. Waaaaaah! I wanted one, but eventually we'd have to eat it, and pigs are so smart, and I knew I'd get attached, and well, hrmmmm, it's just better I don't get one to begin with.

I'd love to live Green Acres, but that's just a wishful fantasy. THEY got to go to town once in a while and have time off. However, our house is pretty much like theirs was - everything is broken. Gah. And my cows are prettier. Mine have stripes. One of these days, I either need to move all my pictures to this laptop I'm using, or go down to the dungeon (basement) and post from my PC so I can show you guys some of my critters.

I realized this morning after I posted that I STILL forgot to post that funny chicken story Ken was referring to, so I'll do it now. I'm just going to copy and paste what I wrote to him because I'm making cheese today and don't have time to re-type the whole thing. I'll go find it and post it right now.
