    Ralphie, you are partly correct. Some of my family was involved with the Rail Road. You will be even wealthier than I after the drawing on Wednesday evening!
    They don't call me PT Jr. for no reason.

    @Bogtown Chick I fed no scratch and only cob corn this morning and they ate most of their layer ration today, so i think they were playing me :) everyone seems to be doing well and hanging in there. My heated dog bowls are struggling a bit with this cold of weather with a thick layer of ice on top when i go out there. in the AM and after work. Easy to break out though. I am impressed with the durability of the bowls as i bang on them to get the ice out. having the thawed water at the bottom of the bowl probably helps it pop out. The girls were very thirsty today and one even hopped into the bowl while i was filling it up. i had to snag her and dry her in fear of her getting chilled. silly girl!

    My only backup is to go back to rubber hog pans, so hopefully the warm up happens soon.

    Kloppers the toad egg did survive. I have 4 toads eggs to go in on Saturday. The size of them is amazing!

    I had to look that up. Wow, they really do think of everything now don't they! If only it wasn't so expensive. LOL!

    We do actually have more action tonight. The girl with the undercarriage shots I previously posted is majorly swollen on her backside (you can see it when her tail is hanging normally)and she has more mucus coming forth. Bagging up?? I don't know. She is slightly bigger in the udder but NOTHING like what is shown on Youtube. But every cow is different right? maybe she is nearly bagged? or maybe she is light years away. In any case we are going out at about 10pm to check on her. I think this calls for rock paper scissors on who gets to pull the first all nighter. NOT ME!

    Wow the Moocall Calving Sensor is a real thing. I thought EJB was pulling our leg.

    Garbage haul out duties firmly fall within the scope of Woman's Work, in the guide I am looking at....

    Ralphie that Ethel sounds so darn cute.

    Sorry about those now diamond chips from the Screamette attack. And of course the scratches on your good lookin face.

    Good thing Judy is a nurse so you didn't bleed out.
