We got about an inch of snow Sunday morning. Kids couldn't get outside fast enough to play in it. Jasper was out there in his Pajamas. One of our heifers got a double prolapse Saturday night.  Had to get the vet out. That was fun in the dark. Have to make a call to the butcher this morning. Going to fill another freezer.

I hope this never happens again but I know it will. When it happens again. I will take the child to the hospital. They will alert the authorities. Then It will be out of my hands.

This is where we are.  I cant even it bring it up. He gets all mad. He sees it as the kids fault. The dog did nothing wrong. They just got too close to her. After his stroke his mind did not rewire right. We are just stuck. If we touch that dog I'm afraid he will kick us out. Then everything we worked for is for not. On the other hand I have to hope my kid or my niece or anyone else wont get bit. The dog has arthritis. We did get him to take her to the vet and get her some meds for that. Her demeanor has changed since. I know how that works though. He will quit taking his own meds sometimes just because he thinks he don't need them. Will he do that with the dog too?

I am not the gun expert you guys are. I go through a dealer. I recently found a Savage .270 at a big box store for $400. I almost grabbed it but I gave my guy a call. He ordered the exact same gun for me plus 2 boxes of shells he lock tighted the scope AND sighted it in for me. Price $405.

I'm in a catch. I didn't have 2 nickels to rub together when I started here 17 years ago. The man has done so much for me and my family. Took us in and made my brother and I partners. We can't jeopardize everything by taking care of the dog but can't allow it to keep happening. Like I said above. We are in agreement here that it happens again the dog is gone and nobody knows where it went.

Don I really feel you. I don't know exactly how you feel but it's close. She never bit that bad just nips but drew blood.

From what i recall jon, you are an actual partner of that business right, and not just a hired hand?
Yeah but the boss is still the boss. He don't have any family. That dog is his baby.

 This is Rant part of the forum? Well here it goes...  Hearing about Dons granddaughter re lit a fire inside me. The dog here on the farm has bitten all my kids, all my brothers kids, a friends kid and the neighbor. Drew blood a couple times. Yet my boss refuses to see that she is a problem even though he witnessed it more than once. We will all be in the office talking, the dog will come in and bite A kid for who know what reason. Then he says you guys just need to keep the kids away from her. Um No.  I live here. I am not making my kids stay inside all the time. No kids allowed in the shop now? No I don't think so. We have been very careful around her but I know it will happen again. She came real close to disappearing last time it happened. The next time will be the last.

Yea You would have to cold smoke it first. I think some people can cooked chicken but I never have. I like to cold pack it raw. It cooks in the jar during the canning process.

This is basically the same way I do it.

Ahhhh, Gents - it is HARVEST SEASON after all, and he is actually a Farmer if I recall, so he's probably actually working his butt off and when he's free, tending to Miss K's list of chores to stay out of Marriage Jail!

Either that or he found a Delorian in one of those sheds right next to a Flux-Capacitor and is busy working to reverse Ken's choice of girlfriends and the entire Obama era. (We can dream can't we?)
There is not much harvesting going on around here. Won't stop raining.

I started a men's health study today. It's through the University of Nebraska Medical Center. They are developing an app to track your calories. It's a pretty cool app. I just record what I eat. If I buy something like a chuckwagon sandwich and a Mountain Dew I can just scan the barcode.

Then they gave me a Nokia body composition Wi-Fi scale. Hooks into the app on my phone via Bluetooth. It tell you your weight obviously but your BMI, muscle%, weight trend, and the weather. That's kind of wierd but whatever. It's a 6 month study. Should be interesting.

so jon, the question is...?.did you rough it with the young man or did you glamp it in style......lol

Yep I roughed it with him. Got a sore neck from a hard cot. I bought a Tee pee tent from Wal-Mart. I thought it would be cool. Its not. Woke up wet with dew even though the windows were closed. When you open the door all the water runs in because its on a slant. I really didn't think that one through. On the up side you can have it up in less than 10 minutes.

Glad you BOTH had fun Jon.  Way I hear it, fathers usually have the most fun and the scouts are there to keep matters in check!?

Yes I would say that is accurate. Otherwise I suppose there would be adult beverages and nobody would be awake to make breakfast.

I am buying and selling on Craigslist all the time. I put a want ad out looking for certain things sometimes. Then I get a message. Is your car still for sale. Um....I'm not selling anything. Sometimes I get this. I will send you a money order and someone will pick up the vehicle. I tell them to give cash to whoever comes to get it.

I went through the whole thing a few years ago and rebuilt everything. The engine has always been good but it does over heat once in a while. We actually have more trouble with that old wagon than anything. No body has parts anymore so we have to make our own. The tuck is too tall to blow into it that so we have to use the wagon.

Even though I don't comment much I am reading and praying for everyone. My mother in law just went into surgery for hip replacement. Pray for a speedy recovery.

2 years of messing around with Kentucky Drs and still never got it done. 2 months in Nebraska and she's under the knife.

The only reason we wanted go to the fair was I haven't been there since they moved it. My wife has never been. Maybe next year. Typically only go once every 4 to 5 years.

As far as the speed limit goes I like it. I usually drove 3 over anyway so I just bump up the cruise 2 more. I can see more accidents coming during harvest. People won't be use to the extra stopping distance required for the increased speed. Especially when they catch up to farm equipment the highway. Pretty hilly in my area. You can fly over a hill and out if nowhere there's a tractor and wagon.

We are headed to Spencer. We will be fishing below the dam. Never been disappointed. Except that one year all we caught was carp. That was still fun. They fought like crazy. My arms were wore out. We caught a bunch of em.

The boss man bought some more cattle so we have been making fence. Putting part of the feed lot back together. Other than that been pretty quiet around my neck of the woods. We are going on a little fishing trip this weekend with another couple. No kids. This will be the first real world test of the generator I installed on the freightliner. Boondocking along the Niobrara river in north central Nebraska. We will be close to a campground so If it fails we can always go pay for a plug in. Id rather stay next to the river.

We originally planned on going to the state fair this weekend but didn't plan ahead soon enough. There is no place to park. My wife literally got laughed at over the phone when she asked if there any spots left. I guess they rented out spots that are not spots. They are packed in like sardines. Not my idea of fun.

Oh and in other news. Most of you know my mother in law moved in with us. She just had her first appointment with the surgeon about getting a hip replacement. She gets it done in 2 weeks. I have never seen her so happy. The Drs in Kentucky have been messing around for 2 years. Try this shot. Try this pill. You are too young. Bla bla bla.

This guy came in and says yea its almost the worst I ever seen. You need a new hip. See you in 2 weeks. The nurse will fill you on the details.

 I have that all around the basement kitchen 4 ft high and then the back splash. It is the real stuff not the fake plastic. Its the thinnest you can get. I don't remember the gauge. It bends easily. We had to be really careful moving it around. Used liquid nails and lag bolts to hold it up. Electrician found me some grey outlets and stainless covers to really finish it off.
