    Every time I bought an expensive tool I hid it in the carriage house. When the wife finally saw it I told her it had been in there a long time.

    I'm such a bad man.

    Just to chime in on the apples discussion, we feed apples every afternoon, diced very small, even to the chicks. DH takes care of it during the week and I do weekends. If he exits the house between 3 and 4 in the afternoon, he is like the pied piper of chickens. They also get other treats from time to time, and the other day he gave them some corn on the cob. He said the younger birds who had never seen it were suspicious at first, but just as ChickenCanoe described, all it takes is the bravest to start scarfing and it soon becomes a free-for-all.

    I made apple butter a few decades ago with a friend of mine, and it was fabulous.

    oz, have to say, what a stalwart couple you have been through it all! So happy that things have settled down and you can enjoy those adorable children.
