Cutting, did I say it was cool here today? Well it got over it. As you can tell this old farmer is burned out early. Left the young bucks raking and round bailing, most likely well into the dark. Cutting tractor don't have good lights. Hehe! Long past stacking bales anymore!

That is the one thing I don't miss now that the horses are gone! Our neighbour cut and baled our field for us, but it never failed that he and the haywagon arrived at the barn on the hottest day of the summer for us to unload and stack!

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.

Sure glad we didn't own any hay when I was a kid. Or now for that matter.

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!😣

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!!
