Robin Williams was a fine comedian and actor. In his final act he hung himself and hurt his family and friends.

That's all I'm going to say about that.

I never owned hay, but I worked it some as a teen. Later, at about age 35, helped a friend in MN tote some bales. Discovered allergy: eyes swelled shut. Nuff o dat, fer shure!😣

You make my point! ;0

I'd stick with camping & fishing too, if I were you!

Have you tried that Mouse-free.com that they advertise here? It's basically the peppermint and spearmint oils in concentrate. I saw you were using some of that.

I have no experience with it, just wanting to know for future reference.

Then there are the "most timers" like Merlin and Tom and Jan (Jan I saw you were playing ketchup with us today). I sort of like Tom and Jans model - downsized to a condo in Fla and most time the country most of the year. Our problem is we don't know where we want to live or even how...

I have told Annie that she (and I) can store anything we want as long as we want. The money isn't an issue and won't be and there will be no regrets. I see it like going to a casino. If you can't afford to lose every penny you gamble, you should not walk through the door. If I couldn't afford to store it I wouldn't and the amount of money it will cost is irrelevant.
I have never regretted anything I have done for Annie and I won't regret this. We have been paying rent on an apartment to hold our belongings - and it took some sacrifice to not have a pool and such the past 5.x years. We also drove old Jags and didn't miss having car payments. It has been our path, our plan, our way. And that's the great thing about the rainbow. It has room for all of us - no matter how we choose to on ramp or exit.

So the path we're on brought us this today... a redacted government doc - nope - a free and clear title...
Awesome guys! We have been having a great sumer. We are currently in Las Vegas. We have needed some work on the coach along the way but you have to expect that...still loving everything about riding this beautiful rainbow. We appreciate every day. You just never know what's around the corner. Go and do as much as you can. We are!!

Colleen, if you want to kill them, Tomcat bait will do that. The bonus is that their bodies dehydrate and won't smell if they die trapped somewhere in the rig. The downside is that the bait will also be toxic to any other warm blooded animal who eats it. That means no Rent-a-Cats or neighbors' dogs!

'Course isn't there always the rope light trick? I've heard those are now downright nifty!

Best of luck!

Hey Tim, made my living as a teen picking up those square hay bales and tossing them up on a flat bed. usually 4-6 of us on the ground and 2 on the flat bed. The ones on the flat bed had their work cut out stacking them. Good old days. Now all I want to lift is a cup of coffee.

Did the apple orchard thing in the fall.
