Well, no farm is complete with out a "honey wagon", "Shit spreader", "Shit flinger"  or "Manure spreader". What ever you call it, we got it. It was a busy day. We followed Jeff's cousin to a farm where they were selling their grandpa's old farm machinery. I knew we wer...

As I mentioned in other blogs, we have been sending out requests for donations to multiple corporations with now luck.

I woke up today, let the dogs out and it wasn't very nice. The wind was whipping and it looked like rain was coming ( it did start raining later). Our...

Last week-end we went to New Ulm to see our rescue mini horses, Jimmy and Jackson. They are staying at Forever Home Animal Sanctuary until we are done fixing fences and electrical in the barn. It was the most enjoyable day. The weather wasn't the greatest but our excit...

We love this place, don't get me wrong but it was not pretty at first. The whole 10+ acres was over grown to jungle proportions, including the yard around the house. Not only did we have thick brush and scrub trees everywhere, even growing out of building foundations,...

I have to include this story because, if we lived in town and I was doing this, as the title says," What would the neighbors think?"

It was last year 2016. I think it was early spring but I can't be sure. We have of course a septic system. The system, by law had to be c...

 We thought Elliot's illness was nothing to worry about but the vet said they had to do surgery . After bringing Elliot in on his surgery day, we got a call that he wasn't doing well, his heart stopped once but they revived him. They had to move him to the emergency Ve...

If you have ever moved, you can relate to the sudden realization of how much "stuff' we as humans can accumulate. Now take 3 people (me, Jeff and my son Christopher) who met late in life, married and then continued to accumulate more junk for 11 years in one house, tha...
