    I never trust a Tom. not even JJ around small people. My grandkids love JJ, but I stand between them or hold JJ when they want to pet him. When I was about 6-7 I was chased around and around a vinegar barrel by a Tom. Scared me poopless. My Dad came to my rescue, and the Tom became a Sunday dinner guest.

    Just saying you can never be too careful with a Tom. The only time I have had a hen come at me is when they have poults.

    Growing up on a farm, we were taught a healthy respect for all male animals. Breeders).

    Feisty.. I have been having a great relaxer last couple days, Colorado Peaches (MM forgot to send me any, I had to buy em in the store), Ice and Mikes... In the bullet grind it and drink it...Yummmy

    Quit complaining, I had 31°F on August 23 this year. It did not help my garden at all. Current overnight temps have been running around 40°F. Enjoy your warmth.[​IMG]

    Bob, when it gets below freezing here we think we are dying! We don't have the clothes for it...our gloves are decorative.

    You wouldn't like it here. We had -27°F the 2nd week of November last year. Of course On a calm sunny day, -20°F feels comfortable because of the low humidity. When the wind blows even 40°F is miserable.
