    honestly, i had such little sleep i was numb. i knew it would get here - it was just as matter of when. there are just shy of 300 eggs in that puppy and tomorrow will age them one more day.

    i am going to have a few hrs sleep. go and buy plywood then find a few broodies at my mother in law's house to put some eggs under.
