I really wonder how people “back in the day” kept their chickens, geese, turkeys, etc. alive! Didn’t they just let them roam free?! We lost all three of our geese while we were away this weekend. Considering our past reputation however, that’s not too bad, being the first of our casualties. We most likely won’t be staying over night anywhere as long as we have poultry, at least, not all of us anyway.

Grammy and Granddaddy are hot on the thistles again this year. Kyle, Luke and I have been out heading and cutting them down this morning, but I can’t help but feel that it is a loosing battle. It takes forever; it’s hot, and they’re going to come back no matter what!!! Still, we’re trying.
