    Never had air conditioning as a kid, we just got used to it and spent evenings outside.

    Now winters were different, we had a wood burning furnace that would go out most nights, nothing like waking up at 5 in the morning, seeing your breath as you jumped out of the covers turned on the light, grabbed your clothes and dived back into bed to dress, there would be frost on my walls and my thermometer would be in the 30's. Then out to the barn to feed and milk the cows before going to school.

    Don't miss a minute.

    From the shower to the fan while still damp - yep, knew that trick. Listening to the rain on the tin roof just outside my bedroom window was comforting. No daily baths, and we survived and were healthy. [​IMG] Think I'll go back to that. [​IMG]

    You get too far out in those fields sour, you won't have a signal to use the phone with. But it probably makes her feel better and that's a good thing.

    Bottom half of the beagle club grounds is a 'dead zone' - pun intended.
