Tired of the ghetto, moving to Mena, AR - Page 3

post #21 of 26

Congratulations on the financing approval and good luck with the move.  By the way in my opinion spirituality may be enhanced/strengthened by having been exposed to the baser side of life.  Most have those 'places' to which they never intend to return.  Keep updating with your progress.  Many here are excited for you and your family.

Thank you for the kind wishes and blessings! The wife has had a major stroke and has been asking about getting some parrots.  "Wrong- I've got something else to keep your butt occupied rather than watching TV 18 hours a day".  "What's that?" 

 

"Chickens.  Not sure if we're going to have 4 eggers and 4 meaties and a 'Roo, or just 4 eggers and 4 meaties- I'm still out to lunch on the Roo!"

 

"But their pets!"

 

"But they're going to have names like "Fryer", "Broiler", "Dumplings", "Fingers", and "Sandwich".

 

"THEN YOU BUTCHER THEM!"

 

"Fine- I'll just make a "Wizz-Bang chicken Plucker" and the hardest part of plucking them will be done."

 

(Pulling daggers from her eyes out of his chest)  I'm thinking I'm going to get a bit of static on this topic in the future,,,,,

No parrots here - they would surely outlive the Princess and me.  :lau

Wife and I are SUPER excited!  The first house fell through- it only had 1/2 acre.  Instead we got a 3 bed, 2 bath, 1.5 acres with a large stream in back of the house!.  Can't wait to get set up for chickens and stuff!!

Congratulations! celebrate.gif I'm so happy for you and your wife.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
