That is funny, Ralphie. It surprises me every year how soon the strutting and flying begin. I'm glad your little rehab center is showing promise. I had to laugh at your syringe comment. My dad was a medic, so we always had syringes and stethoscopes around. No needles or anything. We used them as waterguns - extra precise! Anyway, I wormed my lambs last fall and had to actually BUY a syringe at the store.
Coffee, are you moving within Minnesota? I think I would try to keep some stuff, too, especially if they're telling you they're going to remove them! I have a nifty thing that attaches to a propane tank. I use it for burning certain weeds during certain seasons, but I've had to use it to thaw ground, too. Maybe you have something like this available. Good luck!
Bogtown should be checking in soon with more from As the Lab Turns (into a Civilized Creature). I am particularly keen to hear the exciting conclusion to the spicy egg episode!
Rhetts, as I was doing my thing with the animals today, my husband who also has an affinity for gasoline, performed a similar act. Forgive me, but I won't be sharing your remote lighting technique with him! LOL Silly cats - sometimes I have no idea what they can possibly be thinking.
I should post pics of my fun day today. The phone app is not letting me, though... it'll have to wait until I get to the pc.
Sounds like a good day was had by all.
