They never took a vacation, to go anywhere, in their lives .Being with them & on the farm was a vacation, the hard work a joy. I could talk way to much about my Grandparents but their farm was their lives, & I loved & copied it myself. Our property is across the highway from my Grandparents farm. The watching & observing of animals he loved to do too. I know what you mean about the lurking...I did that for a couple of years too before I joined. I am so glad I did & just love this site....on many more levels than just chickens.
I knew I couldn't be the only one, when I explain it, no one understands, and they ask me why I have so many chickens. On this site I don't feel odd or a need to explain myself.
It must be wonderful to be so close to where you spent your childhoods favorite memories, home is always where your heart is.
