    I like to start my day with a good cup of coffee and usually go to bed after my favorite adult beverage.

    In between waking and sleeping, I enjoy chatting with friends about chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, goats, and all our fine feathered friends. And even our 4 legged furry friends!

    So I thought I would start my own thread where friends can get together, share stories and pictures (I love pics!) about pretty much anything going on in our lives. Even "real work", if we must. My only preference is to avoid politics and religion. Those usually just start arguments and/or hard feelings and this should be an enjoyable retreat!

    So.... a few things that I like: Hatching!! Basically anything that can come out of an egg. I'm an admitted hatch-aholic, with no desire to change at this point. So far, I have hatched ducks, turkey, bantam chickens, large fowl chickens, and quail. I also enjoy learning about taking care of these animals and all that goes with that! I like selling eggs and chicks, and hope to someday make more of a business of this thing that I have fallen in love with over the past year or so.

    But besides chickens (et. al.), which takes up a lot of my time now, I also enjoy sewing, quilting, woodworking, building stuff, cars, guns, hunting, fishing, photography, cooking, gardening, movies, television, windows, sludge, gutters, frogs, monkeys, and squirrels! just to name a few things. (Oh look... squirrel!)...

    Oh, where was I? I got lost, but that's nothing new to those who know me.

    Anyway, feel free to paddle on out to the middle where the bar is, or hang out on the bank and watch. Just please don't try walking on the water. It may look solid, but its probably not.

    Hey :frow

    The bar is always open! We can always build a diving board if necessary... Or maybe a plank!

    Can you be trusted around a rope swing?
