    Was going to wait until I got thru all the posts before I commented, but I couldn't wait after reading your post enola. I have hauled so much stuff in my 98 Toyota Corolla, in fact we just hauled 6 hens to Manton in the back seat last Saturday. Last spring before my compost got going good I went to my BIL house and picked up a load of cow manure in a large tote & brought it home in the trunk of my car. It is my truck. Went to TSC Monday & picked up 4-50# bags of All Flock Raiser & 3 bales of shavings. Threw it all in the trunk & back seat. I guess if my car was newer I might not do that, but I've got to work with what I have.

    it sounds like you have a sinus infection. I understood right away when you mentioned the bad taste in your mouth. Your throat might be sore from the sinus drainage, but smoking extra doesn't help. I would absolutely love to light up. It takes everything I got not to and I've been quit for 9 years.

    oh I hope he gets them too if thats what he wants. You fit all that stuff in your car ? how ? I dont think a bale of hay will go in this one. any tips of how I might get in and out of it ? without bending my ankle . smoking is a big waste of money. shoot that would almost be a car payment hu ?

    It is a big waste of money & horrible for your health, but I have never found ANYTHING that is as relaxing as a hit of a CIG when you are stressed out. My car is a older sedan style Toyota. It has a huge trunk & a big back seat.

    Lost a 18 week old pullet today, yesterday a chick. The pullet has been making a honking noise for a really long time. I almost think she might have pick up something sharp while free ranging. Like it was stuck down in her throat or something. I went out to collect eggs after canning tomatoes all day and there she lay in the pen, rigor hadn't set in yet. She is now bait for the live trap. I was just thinking yesterday that I needed to put her down. Glad I don't need to now.

    Oh that's horrible, hope they all will be OK. Hopefully tomorrow things will settle a bit and she will get back to you. No respitory stuff going on. Just that one making a honking noise. The chick just up and died in the bator yesterday morning. Have another one pipped tonight, we will see how this one does.
