No more controversial posts from me. Nope. I like you folks too much to make enemies. I didn't mean to ruffle any Feathers yesterday. I will try to be good from now on. I will keep my controversial thoughts to myself. Unless your talking about chickens, lol.

Perhaps this site is a warm-fuzzy place to go after the tough day ends, but some opinions that have negative content are ok per my view.

Hey Kelly, this is just a thought..and please take it for what is worth.. my take on this is you ought to chose your battles more carefully, on the road battles that is..from what you've told us your playground is no paradise but a dangerous one to live in. If they are in a rush to get to he!! fast? allow them to get there faster! Don't get yourself all rattled over small stuff that might have a sorry ending for you and your loved ones. My reply to you on said post was meant to get you to focus on the real important stuff you care the most about..:-)

And, I didn't see any offensive posts towards you on the replies you got..just some general thoughts from Friends who happen to disagree once in a need to apologize. Take Care.

yeap, went back there and found a not very nice reply..nor what it's read in-between the lines...that one should be the one apologizing, always coming back here only to stir the shutt.
Sorry Kelly, had to take back that -"I didn't see any offensive posts towards you"- bs, out in the open too..

Kelly; I do not think there is one person on this site who has not lost there temper in a car on todays roads! I know I have and still do. Just nowdays there are a lot of real crazy people out there and you don't want to set yourself up for a confrontation things can happen like shootings ect. Have a good day and don't worry about it.

Kelly, Hon, don't sweat (I mean glisten) it!
I am sure everyone here has probably had those same thoughts and feelings at some time or another. It is not always a racial thing, sometimes it is an age thing.

My biggest problem with human beings is how some ever got drivers licenses. then I found out why.... Texas no longer requires kids to go through the final driving test with a DPS officer!

I also suspect an awful lot out there do not even have a license!

I knew a guy who did that. He never got a social security card, never paid taxes and never had a drivers license. He was a "junior" so when is dad passed away, he just started collecting the checks and they kept coming. And he was a darn good driver, even drove school bus years ago. Ran a gas station. Real quiet fella. I asked him if anybody ever asked, he said yep but he'd always say he forgot it at home and after awhile they'd quit asking. That takes guts. :)

If we all thought exactly alike it would be a dull
world. Besides that we would have nothing to talk
about since we would have the same thoughts so
would have nothing to exchange. Don't forget we
all have a right to our opinion no matter how
wrong it might be. (Just a statement, not aimed
at anybody).

Hey Kelly, I've started an online journal and sent the link to those I know are my friends. That way I can vent as much as I like and know they'll overlook my rantings. It really helps keep me out of trouble on the message boards! I recommend it.

I had missed all the controversy, so I went back, looked up the post, and read it all. You were just saying what you thought; nobody had to agree. But of course, one purpose of a message board is the interchange of ideas, so I guess everything was as it should be.

Apology accepted--I don't like to argue on her either-unless it's about tractors, or music, or a couple of other light duty topics.
That being said, how bout we get back to chickens and tractors.

No problemo Kelly. When angry, its hard to not be controversial to some one..or group.

Speak your mind girl, but learn from the criticisms and compliments.

Don't sweat it! It's impossible to say just what everyone want's to hear. There are some folks that believe they have a monopoly on what gets said on a PUBLIC MESSAGE BOARD. In so far as I know, only ONE PERSON has that right on here. She "owns the place".
I've been known to say things that get people cranked up, from time to time. I don't worry about it. In fact, if I make someone think, or cause someone to say something about the world we live in, I feel like I've accomplished my "goal".
Even the very best speakers don't always get their meaning and purpose trough to everyone. Sometimes people take what we say, and interpret it to their agenda. Can't be helped.....Can't be changed.
Say what's on your mind. Don't hold back just because someone else doesn't like your "viewpoint".
I have noticed several boards are merely "Cliques" that believe they own the internet. If you aren't one of the "originals" you need to clear your thoughts with them before posting. (Not speaking of KL) That is just more incentive for me to say what I feel. (I'd bet that THIS comment draws fire from several directions!)
In closing, just say what you want. If someone has a problem with it, well, they just have a problem.........Have a great day, John

ROFLMAO. Did you really say "I have noticed several boards are merely "Cliques" that believe they own the internet."

What a coincidence. I noticed something like that too.

Will wonders never cease! We find something to agree upon.......John

Dangum amazing aint it. lol

are yall getting all the rain. I thought about your brushhogging enterprise yesterday when I noticed my hog is about a foot under water. I probly won't need it for a while yet. 8^(

If it don't quit soon the hay season is going to be kerpoots again this year.

I saw your post here while back about the GPS and estimating what you're cutting. On the turf farm here I put hubometers to keep up with the traveled distance on the finish mower tractors and can get and almost exact count for what got cut.

It is no good for estimates but it is only off just over 1 acre in a 80 acre field on what has been cut. That's close enough for me because I allow for road travel to the shop and the hubmeter only cost $5 at the truck boneyard. These Fords have 16" tires on the front so it was easily found and don't need calibrated.

We've had a month and a half of MONSOON weather. It's been dry for about a week now, and looks like we're about to settle into "normal" weather, whatever that is.
My first cutting of hay is just about done. A goodly portion of it was junk. We had alfalfa ready to cut, that stood in the rain for 6 weeks.
The measuring of fields, is for the benifit of a real estate company I mow for. I have a fairly good sense of the size of a given field, just by looking at it. I USUALLY don't miss by much. As I also know about how much I can mow in an hour, a day, and so on. The realestate agent wants NUMBERS.....He's in to statistics. All I need is for someone to point me at the piece of ground, and say "how much to mow it"?
For some strange reason, as the demand increases for mowing commercial property, there is getting to be less and less people willing to do it around these parts. (I see $$$$$$$$$$)
With my son and I running 2 tractors when ever we can find time, it has turned into quite a lucrative venture this year.
Gotta keep Dubya in spendin' money somehow.....John

My favorite commander that I ever had in either branch of the service was always telling us to "Be flexible; maintain".
Next time something like that happens, look at it as an opportunity to show how gracious you are. You'll be the winner every time.
Ya, I know, you're thinking "That's easy for you to say. You don't live with it everyday." And that is true. But my advice still stands.

They wouldn't help you any.
