My brother told me how they decorated coconuts but no one every got one they only threw a few to the crowd .if you have never been it is packed with people you can hardly move drinking on the streets as long as it is not in a glass bottle . Plastic or paper . what a party . Fights break out all around you over bead and booze . any now back to the story .As the semi's come down the street in the ZULU Parade they hang the decorated coconuts out over the side of the float which is like I said . a Flatbed Semi trailer with side boards on maybe 10 or 12 ft high . they tease the crowd with them . everybody wants one and no body gets one . well they didn't think about me . I watched and waited and learned . told my brothers I was going to get one of them coconuts . one brother was beside me the other was at the back of the crowd watching the parade . the kid on the float reached down with the bag and I hit it just right got it with one hand and held on an so did he . thought he was coming over the side . good thing the bag tore I wasn't letting go neither was he .as the float pulled away he held up the top half of the bag I had the rest every body going oh chit did you see that slapping me on the back . it was a blast . SIL had to tell my brother it was me . you know I really have had a great life with loads of fun .
Deffinitly kno Zulu, and i know what your atalking about with the teasing. Theyve gotten alot better though, thru the years, the throws are becoming cheaper so the audience is catching more. They had a special program about the painter of the Zulu coconuts, she only made 200 for some of those first years, but now she does it Year Round! She makes Thousands! Its sort of taking some of the fun of the difficulcy out But it makes ot more fun for the average folk too. The last time i went i these are the best i scord (without flashing, mind you!)

You may want to skip the first 100 pages or so. Then maybe a good chunk of the middle. Possibly most of the rest of it as well.
Actually, I changed direction and said a few nice things yesterday, so you showed up at just the right time
Wrong place for that
You are the undisputed Queenie over there, but you ain't a frawg yet
Frawgs can swim through the sludge and not get it stuck all over them. You haven't proven you can do that yet. Although, you have proven that you can hold your breath under water for a really long time

My thoughts on $10 straight run. Think about how much you spend on brooders, coops, feed, fencing, treats, etc...
Chicks are cheap. Start with the best you can. It took me 6 years to figure that out
Being as how i know you, i can ferret out the meaning behind this statement. U say go for it, high price =better quality? I would buy his ducklings But ive seen them barebacked at swaps, apparently housed overcrowded. I dont really want to support him At All but i know he has a sizeable Cayuga flock. Im concerned hes running more like a hatchery, and that hes not culling poor stock, almost just want to call him a wanna be, but i dont have enough info to do that, Yet. Maybe this wkend ill make the swap just to bug him
