We spent the last 3 days in Montgomery. Interesting little city, between sightseeing and the Commissioning ceremony stuff we have been busy. I read the thread at night but do not get time to respond.
My son is now a 2nd Lt. He says the worlds oldest. He needed an age waiver to attend OTS. His college roommate and post college roommate and him have remained close for years. They were Best man at each others weddings. The BFF is a SR-22 pilot. (raptor) Think most awesome fighter plane in the world. As such he is a Captain in the Air Force ane was able to do the swearing in and oath of office for my son. It was amazing.
I have to say I think there is hope for the country yet when I see these young people. I was amazed and pleasantly pleased when they had the entire crowd stand and they gave a prayer and blessing to and for the new officers!
I have renewed my dislike of many southern foods. I really miss Minnesota. It is where I belong I am afraid. While I like the winters in South Florida and Tx, the rest of the south does not impress me...
Speed limits and no passing zones are purely advisory down here and have no legal bearing on a driver as best as I can tell.
I am so over Taylor and Carrie! I have found a woman with a much bigger jet and bank account. The age difference is way more in my favor. She is 92. She has a net worth of 35 billion. My new loves first name is something like Lilliane... She is heir to the Laureli perfume fortune.... The bad part is she lives in France. I am sure she will move for me. She has kids so I will have to split half the money with them when she passes, I suppose. Unless France is a community property country/state.
On the birds:
I will increase my layers slightly, I want around 30-35 going into winter.
I am going to try to get more pure lines.
I hope to get NPIP certified.
I will have Partridge Chanticler thanks to EJB. My rooster ED I got from him is such a super rooster I want more birds like him.
I want to raise some Creamettes, and maybe show one, time will tell if I do that, I would rather give a trio to a 4h kid to show for me. Just to see if the line I have is worthy of being kept alive. I think it is. but what do I know.
I will raise some pure BA's because they are great mothers and good layers. While not lap chickens they are friendly.
I will raise some Speckled Sussex because they are such great eye candy and freindly lap compliant birds.
I will raise a few EE for the egg basket. I have a heavier EE rooster and I hope he throws good egg color, time will tell.
I would like to get some Dominques. I like barred chickens and while I like my barred rocks I am not going to keep them going.
Time to run bbl to finish
