EMS, your neighbor stories made me giggle. I wish mine was just a crotchety old man. Mine is legit certifiable. When he's on his meds, he is fine, even waves. When he is off his meds, it's a much different story. There was one time when I was a kid that he didn't like the sound of the tractor mowing the pasture and he jumped the fence and pulled my grandfather off the tractor...I wasn't very old but I remember very clearly watching my even old then gpa lay him out cold in the pasture. Last year there was an incident, lots of cops, turned out he was holding his own brother hostage...with a fork. Yep, he's nuts. He does have a new girlfriend (how I have no clue) that has seemed to mellow him out. She seems normal, a college professor, my best guess is that she works in the psych dept.
Would love to play in the water, DD asked this morning. If it were yesterday and still 76 degrees I would agree to it but it's 40 degrees and spitting snow today. Wth?! Hasn't stopped Woodstock from playing in it, I'm just waiting for his fat butt to get stuck and then have to figure out how to get him out. Wench on the 4-wheeler most likely
Good on you fly for not sharing your secrets. OH, I've been hearing murmurs that the morels are popping in northern KY/southern IN. That means I have a week or 2 and will be finding them. Hopefully the rain is done for a bit and we have a bumper crop. I want another year like 2 years ago when we were finding them by the bag full. Enough that we couldn't even begin to eat them all and sold them for $45/lb
