I dont think I could replace her with 2 grown men and be as happy with the work as I am with her.she is only 21 and works like an ole farmer...she is learning and hopes to marry our son someday and take this place over..lol...teaching her to be a woman as i see fit...shes a fast learner but still cant cook lol...and refuses to give shots to the critters...but she will come along i'm sure....cant wait till she comes during slaughterine of the chickens[fall]...she wanted me to save alil chick with splay legs...had to tell her that it wasnt good fer anything but snake food it would never live past a few days..i did convince her it had to go but think she needs to be a lil less sympathitic to animals that wont produce round here...well gonnalurk fer a few and drive to town and cut grass.....have a great day to all my KL family...dale anne

Sounds like you had a great time shopping. I love going to yard sales but my wife cringes whenever she sees me lugging stuff out to the shed. She keeps insisting we have too much junk as it is.

Now, while I've got your attention, let's clear the air. no, little lady, you name didn't throw me off. ever since you posted that picture of Michael and yourself I knew you were a woman. What I didn't know was where you found such a young looking girl to sit in for you....lol...gfp
